Thirty Percenters, A Definition?
The Thirty Percenter is one who continues to believe in the Presidents policy and strategy in Iraq as well as the doctrine of preemption in general. They have a deep but naive faith in the basic goodness of the commander in chief [unless he wants to let the gays in]. They see military force as the primary tool for foreign policy. They believe the UN is not legitimate. Diplomacy is only possible under preconditions favorable to the United States. They even believe that preemptive nuclear war may be justifiable! And, sometimes they call themselves Christians! If we survive, history will look back on this period and refer them as the hardcore lunatic fringe. Unfortunately, their leader has his finger on the button!
