I would hardly call Kennedy or O'Connor liberals, moderates at best.  Stevens has been on the court so long that he became a liberal as the court became more conservative.  But I will give you Souter.

Maybe not "liberals" but surely not the conservatives they were thought (hoped) to be.

I think that is the problem many Republicans are having now, they want someone who is not going to disappoint them down the road.

Lets not forget that Republicans also nominated Scalia, Thomas, and Rhenquist; who did not become liberal judges.  A trend of one is hardly convincing.

Souter, Kennedy, O'Connor, Stevens = 4

Make sure that you get SP1 if you get the file off a bit-torrent.  It's a pretty major upgrade and is free to download from the MS site.

Bush campaigned that he would nominate conservative justices.  He won the election he should do just that.  Why should he compromise?  Elections mean something and they have consequences.  One of the privileges of being the CinC is that HE gets to nominate justices...not whiney democrats who lost.

At this point in the war, Japan was on the verge of surrender and the US administration knew it. 

ummm, Japan didn't even surrender after they knew we had the bomb AND we used it on them.  We had to do it again!!  Japan was not even close to surrender and using the bomb did biring a horrible war to a quick end (and yes, it saved tens of thousands of american lives)

On another note, does anyone really want to bring these guys into our civilian justice system? 

Are we really going to have a trial, call in the US soldiers to testify about their actions on the battlefield and what they saw and how they captured the enemy?  What if the soldiers did not marandize (sp) him before questioning?  Speaking of questioning...should we give them civilian attorneys before any takes place. 

Do we want to give a propaganda platform to these extremists? Can they sue our soldiers for their actions?

Just some questions.
