The cheerleaders for Bush think "we're all on the front line; we're all in this war."

Let me tell them what "we're all in this war" would really mean:

From this moment until such time as its enemies shall have been driven from the soil of the Republic all Frenchmen are in permanent requisition for the services of the armies. The young men shall fight; the married men shall forge arms and transport provisions; the women shall make tents and clothes and shall serve in the hospitals; the children shall turn linen into lint; the old men shall betake themselves to the public squares in order to arouse the courage of the warriors and preach hatred of kings and the unity of the Republic.

It's called a levée en masse. Means we'd all have to pick up a gun. All of us. Even Hugh Hewitt.
