Bush is getting second civil war

TO THE EDITOR:

It's already a different kind of war. After Sept. 11, 2001, President Bush made a point of telling the country that our war was with terrorists, not Islam. In effect, he told Americans not to attack Muslims living here. Now, however, when Americans are attacking each other over whether to have war or peace, the president is oddly silent on the subject. He has not said his war is with Iraq, not anti-war protestors.

We can only construe that he wants citizens to turn on each other, for hawks to demonize and harass doves every possible way, even to the point of ruining careers. He wants his minions to do his dirty work for him. In short, our president wants a second civil war to divide the union, and he's getting it.
