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.
