The president in front of the nation declared a war on terrorism and told them this could be a long fight. I believe it will. But if we free Iraq from murder and oppression the morale of the Islamic terrorists will take a serious blow.
All we here at home is the negative side of this war. I receive emails from vets in Iraq via a Nam vet friend of mine who now lives overseas. He has access to our men and women fighting there. Their mails show a different picture.
Americans are now spoiled by having it done now - no waiting. They think this war should have been over a long time ago. It would, if the corrupt UN had done its job. World security has always been America's job. Seems our so-called allies prefer to "sit this one out".
We must stay and see it finished. Otherwise it will be Vietnam 2.
