    1. Honor thy father and mother is the fourth commandment.

    2. But of course, that was GHW Bush after the '91 war.

    Get many emails like that?

    All I get is email for Viagra, home refinance and websites for girls "just waiting for me" to visit. :)

    "Like father, like son" is overused.
    Everyone knows that things skip a generation.
    Bush the father is actually a smart guy. The son, well...

    Bush the father has no balls, the son, well...

    It gets back to the coalition of the willing.
    This time the coalition was willing...well...because the US went pretty much alone.

    Not pro/con, just some points to consider.

    Remember the Sabbath is the fourth commandment, honor thy father and mother is indeed the fifth.

    Seems like this depends on whether you follow the Roman Catholic or Protestant version of the Ten C's. As someone who went to 16 years of Catholic school, mom & dad came fourth and the Protestant #10 is split into two parts. (source here.)

    I had no idea before today that Protestants had a different version of this.

    so there's the rub, I spent 8 years in Episcopal school myself and didn't have any idea that there was such a difference between Catholics and Protestants either, learn something new every day I guess.

    Well Episcopalianism/Anglicanism is a bad example since an Episcopal mass and a Catholic mass are basically the same thing--the Anglican Church only split from Rome for political, not religious reasons (this is why my Catholic dad and my Southern Baptist mom decided to compromise on Anglicanism when they got married). Other Protestant sects like Presbyerianism, Baptism, Lutheranism, etc have a lot more distinction from Catholicism.

    Bush Sr. was a bitch, such a liberal. Had we taken the road to Baghdad then none of this would have happened. Guy had no balls, all he could do is vomit on foreigners.
