Over the next few days I am going to start going through the rather substantial Keyes archives and dig up every over-the-top interventionist, Lincoln cultist, etc. statement he has made and put them out here for all to see. Here is one for starters. In August 06 Keyes called for war against Syria. Is that what you want Constitution Party? This is going to be too easy. There will be plenty more where this came from. E-mail me with your own examples as you find them.
If the anti-terror war is more than hollow rhetoric, the logical and necessary response of the Bush administration will be a message to Capitol Hill requesting that, on account of the overt Syrian alliance with a terrorist entity, Congress formally declare the state of war that would then undeniably exist between the United States and Syria…
No other course would be consistent with the premise that, after 9-11 the U.S. was not at war just with al-Qaida and those directly involved in the attacks, but with terrorism and all those who practice it; that we were not just responding to a threat to the United States, but to one that in principle menaced the peace and security of the entire world. Given this premise, every act of terror against any people anywhere is an act of war, which engages our interest and ought to engage the interest of all nations, against the perpetrators. Any state that fights in open alliance with a terrorist entity is therefore, like that entity, at war with us and with all the world.
Notice the breathless “menaced the peace and security of the entire world.” Such is the typical language of the neocon (a.k.a. revolutionary Jacobin). Such is the language of the “fear the Islamomeanies” hysterical alarmist.
“…every act of terror against any people anywhere is an act of war…” Is he serious? I had given Alan some credit for being more reasonable and level-headed than his “police the world” followers. I take it back. This man is dangerous.
