The American people are very kind, loving, caring people. UNTIL YOU START A WAR WITH THEM. Once they finally figure out the fight is on, they will finish it.
Understand, to the vast majority of Americans alive in August 1945, there was no question about using atomic bombs on Japan. NONE WHATSOVER.
After 911, 90 percent of the American people were behind the President. If there is another similar event, the President will have no choice but to act decisively or be removed immediately. I doubt the impeachment process would take more than 24 hours.
Memo to potential enemies - If you do not like the way we end wars, don't start one with us.
