"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Bush ignores Democrats call to retreat

Rightwing Guy posted today regarding President Bush's stance on Iraq in the face of the Iraq Surrender Group.

I share RG's opinion on this subject (as well as others).

Do the msm and Liberals really think our troops are stupid? I don't know the answer to that and I don't even know if they really care. Their mission is one of them being in power; not what is really good for this country.

Is the president and others correct when they say to lose/leave Iraq would bring the battle to our shores? I don't think that is out of the realm of possibility, though it may take some time for it to come to fruition. Perhaps this is what CAIR is all set up to do, since every offense against a Muslim here or in the air is a slight against the Muslim and any lack of responsibility of the part of a Muslim in question; even if fellow travellers are concerned due to odd behavior.

In my mind, the battle doesn't have to be on our shores to be a huge threat to the U.S. What would be freed up in Iraq, the morale boost and further vindication of their cause(s) would expand beyond our wildest dreams. A broken and viscious international community environment is what we would reap; leading to death and carnage truly worthy of whining about.

Give "T's" post a read and follow some of the links he has in his post to others he mentions; it's always worth the virtual trip.

"Bush ignores the Democrats Call to Retreat" from Rightwing Guy

"Since the release of the Iraq Study Groups report the Democrats have been jumping up and down and yelling that the Bush administration to cut and change course and “redeploy” from Iraq, but the President has ignored their calls and forged ahead.

The President stated on Wednesday that the enemy was, "far from being defeated," and that, "We're not going to give up. The stakes are too high and the consequences too grave."
The rest is not history....but HERE
