What Does it Take??
I should have expected no less from the leftist wackos this week. Before General Petraeus even spoke there was a full page ad in the NY Times by Moveon.org calling him names and saying he was a liar. They didn't even know what he was going to say yet! And while he was trying to speak, more leftist wacko no-war-no-matter-what protesters kept interrupting him. What does it take for you people to understand what is really going on in Iraq?
As far as I am concerned only the people with boots on the ground every day know what is truly going on. They are the only ones who can see the before and after pictures of their efforts. It is nice that certain politicians have made some effort to visit there, but if they even leave the green zone- or Baghdad for that matter- they are given a full politicized security tour and brief, which lasts about 1-2 hours. You can't get everything in that amount of time.
Here's my advice. Get the politics out of war. Let the military do their jobs as they see fit and support their requests and suggestions 100%. If you do that, we'll be out of there a whole lot quicker and get a whole lot more done.
All of you protesters out there need to shut up because you truly have no earthly concept of the situation there or anywhere else. You live in a fantasy land where everything can be accomplished through tea parties and small talk. Well let me tell you, IT CAN'T! That never has been able to happen and never will happen. Fighting is human nature. There will always be somebody who doesn't like you. It doesn't matter why, so go ahead and forget that 3,000 plus Americans were killed in 2001. Forget that Bin Laden declared open war on us in 1996 and forget that Saddam murdered many of his own people for fun. Just forget all of that. Shut your ears and eyes and live in your fantasy land.
