Americans Need To Stay The Course

Many in the media and the pundit talk shows talk as if we have already lost the war. That this has been nothing but a huge failure and we would be better off if we packed it up and came home right now and forget what happens in the part of the world.

Those at the top pushing for a withdrawal such as John Murtha and John Kerry, just to name a few, feel that leaving that leaving Iraq would solve the problem, that we are creating the violence.

I tell him and all who read this, we will not be safer if we leave Iraq, our enemies are attacking us there only because it's easier for them to do so, it is far easier to go to Iraq for holy war than it is to come here.

If we left they would only follow us to our shores and attack us once again and thats something this President has been able to prevent.

Now by military standards Iraq has been our greatest victory, since the beginning of the invasion we have only lost some 3000 soldiers, compare that to any other war over the same amount of time and you will see what I mean.

In World War I (1917-18) we lost 116,708 soldiers, 407,316 in World War II (1941-45), 36,516 in Korea (1950-53), and 58,167 in Vietnam (1965-73).

There is death and sacrifice in war, those who sign up are doing so with that knowledge, they know what could happen and that they could go to war.

Those who flee to Canada are traitors and should be shot on site.

There was never a time when President Bush said this was going to be quick and easy, he had said over and over that this was going to be long and hard and it would take a great commitment.

Leaving now would only provoke more attacks and show our enemies that we can be defeated by cowards in dirty bed sheets.

Most likely we will have permanent military bases in Iraq, which will help us and our allies in the long run.

Right now we have 70,000 troops in Germany, 45,000 in Japan and 29,500 in Korea.


We are in this for the long haul and people need to start getting used to it.

We have enemies and they want to kill us, they do not care if we are Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservitive, they want us dead, they want to cut off our heads as they pray to their god. We can not falter and we must not fail.





Open trackbacks as always! Have a great Thanksgiving.

We are in it for the long haul if the Dems don't make it into the Whitehouse. If they do it will be over quick and the Islamic idiots will make good on their threats.

Growing up we were taught:

Quiters never win &
Always finish what you started

why throw away those key strategies now that we have grow up?

I am so sick of these hateful men and women enbolding the enemy. I don't understand why we don't call it what it is treason and proceed forward with charges befitting the enemy.
Lord knows its the pink elephant sitting in the middle of the room that everyone is choosing to ignore.

But Rumsfeld did. "6 days, 6 weeks, I doubt 6 months."

'member that?

I expect a war for at least another generation. If we can keep the Dems out of the WH, we will succeed.

Succeed in having at least another 25 years of war? Hey, I guess you gotta have goals in life.
