- 2007-08-09 To save America, we need another 9/11 by Stu Bykofsky: "What kind of a sick bastard would write such a thing? A bastard so sick of how splintered we are politically - thanks mainly to our ineptitude in Iraq - that we have forgotten who the enemy is. It is not Bush and it is not Hillary and it is not Daily Kos or Bill O'Reilly or Giuliani or Barack. It is global terrorists who use Islam to justify their hideous sins, including blowing up women and children. Iraq has fractured the U.S. into jigsaw pieces of competing interests that encourage our enemies. We are deeply divided and division is weakness."
- reiterates the questionable claim that Americans are against the Iraq war due to lack of fortitude: "Americans have turned their backs because the war has dragged on too long and we don't have the patience for a long slog. We've been in Iraq for four years, but to some it seems like a century."
- The mainstream media gave considerable favorable coverage to this article:
- 2007-08-11 Right-Wing Media Give Favorable Platform To ‘Another 9/11′ Columnist: Bykofsky appeared on Fox News's The Big Story, where host John Gibson agreed: "I think it’s going to take a lot of dead people to wake America up," said Gibson.
- "division is weakness" is one logical step away from "ignorance is strength"

- 2007-06-03 GOP chief: New strategy key quotes Saline County (Arkansas) Republican Party chairman Dennis Milligan: "At the end of the day, I believe fully the president is doing the right thing, and I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [ 9/11 ], and the naysayers will come around very quickly to appreciate not only the commitment for President Bush, but the sacrifice that has been made by men and women to protect this country,” Milligan said.' He probably didn't mean it the way it sounds, but it does rather illustrate the kind of "thinking" at work among Bush supporters: better to have another 9/11 than to have to keep dealing with (much less acknowledge the validity of dissent). The right wing truly does have more in common with the Islamic extremists than with most everyone else.
