Behind all the "bipartisanship, " dimpled-chad Democrats are sharpening their knives for the fall election. But David Horowitz is back with an indispensable manual for wartime politics. If the Democrats thought we'd forget who demoralized our military, eviscerated the CIA, and let America become a playground for terrorists, they're in for a rude awakening.For Democrats, politics is permanent war. Every conflict is a contest for power, every battle is about burying their enemies — Republicans. With racial shakedown artists and intolerant "progressives" rearing their heads at home — and terrorists striking at us from abroad — Horowitz's uncompromising and principled commitment to freedom is more needed than ever.

Horowitz's opening salvo shows why the Democrats can't be trusted with the nation's security. For years, the party has subordinated sound defense policy to a radical ideology untamed even by September 11. Horowitz's unmatched strategic powers are on full display in his enumeration of the principles for a winning political campaign, which he then applies to the specific issues that shape elections. Returning to the subject of war, he concludes with an exposi of the anti-American escapades of Noam Chomsky and his comrades of the unrepentant left.
