David Limbaugh | March 29, 2003

The self-absorption and self-elevation of the mainstream media in disparaging our military efforts, complaining about being kept out of the information loop, and asserting their neutrality in the war never cease to inspire shock and disgust.

Robert Novak | March 29, 2003

Senate Republican leaders accuse Democrats of a "sneak attack" in bringing up a budget amendment cutting in half President Bush's proposed tax reduction Tuesday when his only Democratic supporter, Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia, was absent.

Ann Coulter | March 28, 2003

Just five days into the war in Iraq and the New York Times was hopefully reporting that despite a thrilling beginning, American troops had gotten bogged down.

Michelle Malkin | March 28, 2003

The crusty ex-journalist-turned-White House heckler had only one thing on her mind when her favorite news stations, al Jazeera and Iraqi state TV, repeatedly broadcast those chilling pictures of scared American POWs and gleeful Iraqi soldiers hovering over dead American soldiers last weekend.

Brent Bozell | March 28, 2003

It's quite amazing what spurious nonsense a politician can get away with saying in Washington -- if there's a "D" next to his or her name.

Mona Charen | March 28, 2003

Throughout most of human history, most people have had to live on the brink of disaster. Harsh weather, disease and scarcity of food could all snuff out a life in short order.

Oliver North | March 28, 2003

Currently, I sit amongst a half dozen Army and Marine Corps helicopters surrounded by a platoon of Marines who are protecting us from those who might try to engage us in the middle of the night.

Debra J. Saunders | March 28, 2003

Where do the 52 U.S. senators who voted last week against drilling for oil in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge think oil comes from?

Jacob Sullum | March 28, 2003

When President Bush sent the first bill for the war with Iraq to Congress, he warned that "business as usual on Capitol Hill can't go on."

John McCaslin | March 28, 2003

The Bush White House suddenly finds itself fighting two wars in Iraq - military and political - and if the latter is lost, then the Evil Empire will continue unabated down its deadly path of producing weapons of mass destruction.

Bruce Bartlett | March 28, 2003

A little over a year ago, on March 5, 2002, President Bush made a serious mistake by imposing tariffs on imported steel. At the time, there were many, including myself, who said that the negative impact of this action on steel consumers would be much greater than any benefit to steel producers.

Charles Krauthammer | March 28, 2003

The media could use some lithium. Not since I studied bipolar disease 25 years ago have I seen such dramatic mood swings as in the coverage of the first week of the war.

Rich Lowry | March 28, 2003

The captured American Army Specialist Shoshana Johnson, by all accounts, had no intention of becoming a feminist icon.

Larry Elder | March 27, 2003

Frederick Douglass, the great abolitionist, born a slave, once offered a lesson in patriotism. In 1859, he fled for his life, accused erroneously of participating in the raid on Harper's Ferry, along with John Brown.

Cal Thomas | March 27, 2003

While the war overseas continues, so does another war at home.

Suzanne Fields | March 27, 2003

The windows of the apartment on the fifth floor on the Lower East Side once had a view of the Twin Towers. Now there's only a patch of blue sky, and memories sailing past like puffs of white clouds, making fanciful shapes. It's a beautiful spring day.

Ben Shapiro | March 27, 2003

The French have faced some serious charges in the past few months. They've been called traitorous, lazy and odious. But now, it seems that those charges haven't gone nearly far enough:

Maggie Gallagher | March 27, 2003

Of course, it was bound to happen. Casualties of war are inevitable.

Bill Murchison | March 27, 2003

The images of dead American soldiers on some concrete floor had -- besides horror and gruesomeness -- a certain familiarity. They brought to mind the Somali horrors of a decade ago, memorialized in the book and film "Black Hawk Down."

Emmett Tyrrell | March 27, 2003

How is it that the American press, particularly the broadcast press, has become one of the most salient stories of this war?

Ross Mackenzie | March 27, 2003

Operation Iraqi Freedom has spawned a new use of the word "embed" - in the sense of attaching media types to coalition military units for on-site reporting of action.

George Will | March 27, 2003

No 20th-century public career was as many-faceted, and involved so much prescience about as many matters, as that of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who died Wednesday at 76.

Alan Reynolds | March 27, 2003

Will the president's tax plan be counted among the first casualties of war?

Larry Kudlow | March 27, 2003

There they go again. Despite a mountain of clear polling data, The New York Times still refuses to admit that the vast majority of Americans support President Bush's war to topple the dangerous regime of Saddam Hussein and liberate the people of Iraq.

Robert Novak | March 27, 2003

"There were some who were supportive of going to war with Iraq who described it as a cakewalk," Tim Russert told Donald Rumsfeld on NBC's "Meet the Press" last Sunday. The secretary of Defense seemed surprised. "I never did," he replied.

William F. Buckley | March 27, 2003

It is widely noticed that the faithful attending religious services are greatly vexed by the divide between religious counselors (the majority of them) and the counsel of their political leaders.

Thomas Sowell | March 26, 2003

A recent news story about a teacher who assigned her students to write anti-war letters may have seemed like just an isolated episode, but teachers using students for their own little ego trips is by no means uncommon.

Michelle Malkin | March 26, 2003

Sgt. Asan Akbar, a Muslim American soldier with the 326th Engineer Battalion, had an "attitude problem."

Walter E. Williams | March 26, 2003

Commanding Officer Capt. Fred Stutt invited my friends Greg Brudnicki, Les Brackett and me to a VIP tour of the Coastal Systems Station.

Jonah Goldberg | March 26, 2003

I woke up this morning to hear "Today" host Katie Couric explain to her millions of viewers that Pentagon officials had terribly "miscalculated" in their plan to topple Saddam.

David Limbaugh | March 26, 2003

Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 307 points. Sure, the recent uptick had to level off at some point, but this dramatic drop, I think, is based on largely unwarranted concerns over the war.

Tony Blankley | March 26, 2003

Americans are fair, and more than fair. We will even accept a few unnecessary casualties to give the other side time to do the right thing.

Terry Jeffrey | March 26, 2003

One of the most symbolic images from the closing days of the Cold War is of a wall that finally came down. It stood in Berlin for almost three decades, separating the people of the West from their enslaved brothers in the East.

Debra J. Saunders | March 26, 2003

It's rather choice that the antiwar group Direct Action to Stop the War is complaining about "increased repression from the San Francisco Police Department."

Linda Chavez | March 26, 2003

Just when reality TV seemed to have exhausted the possibilities for new topics, "Live from Iraq" has taken over, 24/7.

Kathleen Parker | March 26, 2003

Americans flipping channels Sunday night between war coverage and the Oscars were treated to a rare instance of defining clarity.

Larry Kudlow | March 26, 2003

In a surprise move, the president's tax-cut proposal was cut in half in a 51-to-48 Senate vote to reduce the static revenue cost to $350 billion from $725 billion.

George Will | March 26, 2003

There has been much breezy confidence that the war will be painless and the aftermath--replacing Iraq's regime--easy. This has made the public susceptible to mood swings.

Joel Mowbray | March 26, 2003

They arrived as Saddam apologists willing to die for the despot—but they left Iraq weeks later with changed hearts and a determination that Saddam must go.

Marvin Olasky | March 26, 2003

Those against the war are making their voices heard. They should not demand to be obeyed. Democracy means rule by the people -- all the people -- including those who vote for leaders and then, prayerfully trusting them to try to do what's right, stay home.

John McCaslin | March 26, 2003

As sole anchor of "NBC Nightly News" for 20 years, Tom Brokaw has encountered his share of difficult moments. Last Friday was one of his toughest.

Armstrong Williams | March 26, 2003

The "shock and awe" has passed. Now comes the war of attrition.

Thomas Sowell | March 25, 2003

We have heard a lot about anti-war demonstrators. Indeed, we have heard a lot from anti-war spokesmen, as the media continue their corrupt practice of providing free air time to those whose antics provide them with footage for their news broadcasts.

Mona Charen | March 25, 2003

Why we didn't take more Japanese prisoners. At first, we tried to. But one Japanese soldier came out with his hands up and then dropped to the ground so that the guy behind him could open fire. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. We didn't take prisoners after that.

Cal Thomas | March 25, 2003

The gloom-and-doom prophets of disaster - from Jimmy Carter, to Walter Cronkite, to the editorial pages of The New York Times - ought to acknowledge they were wrong. But they won't.

Dennis Prager | March 25, 2003

Rachel Corrie, the Olympia, Wash., college student killed trying to protect a Palestinian house -- a house, remember, not even a human being -- against an Israeli bulldozer, will probably not merit a footnote in history books.

Matt Towery | March 25, 2003

While American troops were engaged in only their third day of combat in Iraq, an announced candidate for the Democratic nomination for president was joining a disaffected and ultimately riotous crowd of war protesters in New York City.

Phyllis Schlafly | March 25, 2003

Gone are the days when academic freedom was the watchword on college campuses. Today, thought control is the dominant theology, often hiding behind the mantras of diversity and multiculturalism.

Rich Tucker | March 25, 2003

“Operation Iraqi Freedom” is underway. And as our troops move across Iraq, we at home will know almost everything they are doing, practically in real time.

Frank Gaffney | March 25, 2003

The most traumatic loss the U.S. military has suffered to date in the war with Iraq may, ironically, have been inflicted not by Iraqi Republican Guards, regular army units or irregular “Fedayeen.” Rather, it may have come at the hands of an American servicemen.

Larry Kudlow | March 25, 2003

We hoped to be persuasive enough that it was not in their interest to obey orders to fight," Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told a news conference Friday afternoon, following the launch of the "shock and awe" air attack on Baghdad.

Rich Lowry | March 25, 2003

It should have been branded unworkable, chalked up as a waste of $3 billion better spent on schools and health care, and forever mothballed under the heading "Another Crazy Missile-Defense Fantasy."

Bruce Bartlett | March 25, 2003

Democrats are trying hard to make an issue of the cost of the Iraq War. Unlike any war in history, they have said that the White House should have presented an exact accounting prior to the onset of hostilities.

Jack Kemp | March 25, 2003

In the final declaration of the Azores summit meeting just before we invaded Iraq, President Bush and U.K. Prime Minister Blair agreed to a major U.N. role in the reconstruction of Iraq.

Debra J. Saunders | March 24, 2003

It's a popular conceit among the antiwar crowd that diplomacy is the realm of the intelligent, while war is for dummies who can't talk their way out of a crisis.

Diana West | March 24, 2003

In the tense hours before military action, as the countdown clock was ticking, eyes turned to the Persian Gulf and all the world held its breath. Too bad some people kept on talking.

John Leo | March 24, 2003

Even if civilian casualties in Iraq are light, expect a great deal of attention to the subject in the days ahead.

Kathleen Parker | March 24, 2003

Everything is too much and yet I can't get enough. The urge to know trumps the urge not to know. The compulsion to feel what's happening "out there" conquers the instinct to avert one's eyes. It is an altogether strange experience, even for those who were tethered to the TV during the first Gulf War.

Joel Mowbray | March 24, 2003

Watching what had happened in Iraq, I felt “shock” and “awe”—not at the military campaign, but at what Saddam has done to his own people during his reign of terror.

William F. Buckley | March 24, 2003

As we pause, waiting to discover whether Saddam is dead or alive, attention passes to the United Nations. We begin by asking, Who are we mad at?
