    I would have but (1) there is no point in arguing with Horowitz, as he is a
    revolving door when it comes to argument, and (2) for the most part, he
    didn't say anything new or, to be honest, worth arguing about. Besides, when
    has a "pro-war militant" (as you call them) EVER understood a subtle call for
    anything? Those who are against war have a right to protest as do those who
    are in favor of responding militarily. Sorry, but I just don't see the point
    on this one.
