Or at least stop rooting for the terrorists' greatest victory.
f we leave Iraq now, the terrorists win. Simple as that. Although that's probably what you really want, would you please explain to everyone how a terrorist win is going to help our country and our troops? Will Iraq and its people be better off? Will terrorists sign an armistice? Does such a victory for the terrorists mean we won't have to fight them anymore? Is that giving peace a chance?
Since you claim to have the right answers, I'd like to know how giving fanatical, fascist, civilian-targeting, baby-killing terrorists exactly what both they and you want — our troops' complete withdrawal from Iraq before their mission of fully securing and stabilizing that fledgling democratic enclave is done — is going to make us Americans more safe and secure; how it's going to end the war, for good, rather than prolong it.
Forget the past. I'm much, much more concerned about the future. I want you to assure me that the terrorists will be less of a threat to us here, in this country, if we give them that Iraq Victory which you and they together now so vigorously seek.
I believe a great many other Americans also want thorough answers and full accountability regarding any plans for leaving Iraq now, from the ones here who're constantly espousing such plans. That is, you.
While we're waiting, I'll be remembering accounts of Okinawa, Bloody Tarawa, Iwo Jima, and any of the whole host of other places we never even considered leaving before our mission there was done.
