Well, that didn’t take long. Lead by Speaker Pelosi, House Democrats have called for a pull out from Iraq by August,2008. As predicted, the non-binding resolutions have turned into a binding resolution as Congress attempts to “Control the Purse” and force the Administration to reverse it’s course in the War on Terrorism.
Stop to think for a minute. What would a pull out accomplish? Did pulling out of Somalia allow that country to govern itself? Did a pull out help Vietnam retain it’s independence? Will a pull out curb Radical Islam? Were we in Iraq when the U.S.S. Cole was bombed? When the embassies in Somalia were bombed? September 11th?
If Iraq is the same “Quagmire” as Vietnam, have we learned anything since 1975? When the U.S. pulls out of Iraq, the resulting bloodbath will make the Communist take over of South Vietnam look like a birthday party. Are the Democrats saying that we should let the Iraqis die instead of Americans? It that what America stands for? If this was a western, would the Sheriff say, “Do what you want with the girl, but leave us alone”.
It’s clear that the Democratic Party is driven by a hatred of George Bush. Bush did not invent the War on Terrorism. Radical Islam has been with us since 1972. September 11th merely brought it home to us. Allowed us to see the reality that Europe has faced since Munich. Do the Democrats really believe that everything will be better with Bush out of office? If we do not stay the course in Iraq and Afghanistan, Radical Islam will claim a righteous victory and turn it’s resources towards the United States. We will be dodging car bombs on the way to work. September 11th was the first attack on American soil because we have always fought in foreign countries. The Democrats want to change that. Is that the change you voted for?
All is not doom and gloom in Congress. The Republicans have actually stood up and opposed this binding resolution. Pelosi and Reid might be enjoying a majority right now but they will find out that they can’t do much with it. So while Congress debates, Radical Islam will see it as the weakness it is and plot to go on the offensive again.
