End the “War is Lost Mentality”
While the House & Senate are busy writing letters demanding an apology from Rush Limbaugh for something the extreme left has taken out of context, what they are not discussing is the success that is happening on the ground in Iraq. Clear evidence that the surge is having dramatic progress is essentially being ignored by congress.
Reports of progress being made in Iraq does not support the “The War is Lost” mentality that Democrats have been proclaiming for years. Instead of undermining our mission in Iraq (and our troops deployed in support of that mission) the nation would be far better served by political leaders who were working to achieve the goals of that mission.
It doesn’t matter what anyone’s position on the war in Iraq was to begin with, we are there now. We get no do-overs and what is done can not be undone. Bottom line is that there are only two ways out of Iraq. In victory or in defeat. There is no grey area nor any middle ground on this, we either win or lose.
It is well past time for Democrats and Republicans alike to put politics aside, end the political posturing, and do what it takes to win this war…. Because if we lose, May god help us all…
