Bigger Guns

The world's Cowboy in Chief announced today that he's pointed his wagon in the direction of more troops for Iraq and a larger military in general for the long haul, which strikes me as akin to an aging Casanova thinking that perhaps he'd get chicks like he used to if he only had an even bigger dick. Our blinkered president Bush will probably never understand how guns and bombs and brute force is never going to solve the problems of fundamentalist extremism, but I have hope for our greater electoral masses catching on.

I'm curious, however, are there loud and reasonable voices on the side of understanding the "enemy" and sharing the pie, or are we left with nothing but flakes and kibutzniks to argue on the side of reason and progress?
