What's an "Exit Strategy"
good for anyway!

John Kerry & Company have
been relentlessly criticizing President Bush's handling of the
War on terror, Iraq Chapter, constantly carping about the lack
of an "Exit Strategy". What if the peacenicks of 1943
had railed at FDR about not having a strategy to exit Europe
and Asia in a year instead of waiting for VE and VJ day? In reality
FDR had the same strategy in mind that President Bush has which
is "Win the damn war and then, only then, go home!"
War is Hell. We have lost a thousand valiant people in this one
already. It is truly Hell for everyone, especially the families
of the men and women brave enough to be thrust into harm's way
in cesspools like IRAQ. The problem is that the poor three thousand
Americans killed in one attack on 9/11 did not know that they
were also in harm's way. Each and every one of us who gets on
a plane or lives under the path of a plane or near a refinery
or visits a government building for any reason is threatened
by the same beasts who decapitate innocent businessmen daily
It is simple really. Islamic terrorists want to kill us and President
George W. Bush is using pre-emptive attacks on them to protect
us. We keep them busy, keep their heads down until we find them
and kill them first. A thousand martyrs on our side is a heavy
toll indeed but we lost a thousand killed many individual DAYS
during the Second World War and if today's terrorists get their
bloody hands on atomic weapons we would be vastly more damaged
and threatened than we were in WWII. Take 9/11 alone; on that
day we lost twice as many killed as we lost on December 7, 1941,
God Bless the President for keeping us safe or at least safer
for the past three years and let's hope he keeps his job so he
can finish the big job, the entire job "exit strategy"
