At Stake in Iraq

Here is an excellent commentary on what is at stake in Iraq: (The Conservative Voice: Can Democracy Succeed in Iraq?). It's not necessary for me to repeat what's printed there. The commentary speaks for itself.

As the article concludes, "Recent polls suggest Americans are losing interest in the war. One thing's for sure. If we lose our nerve in Iraq, the Jihadists will win." How very true. This is not the time to be setting timetables for withdrawal. This is not the time to waver in our resolve to setup a free and independent Iraq. What is at stake may well be the future of the Middle East. It has not escaped notice in that part of the world that the only places free elections are being held are in occupied countries.

The message must be clear to the Iraqi people, to the insurgents, and to the rest of the Arab world that we are committed to a free and independent Iraq. We are in this for the long haul. The only way for us to lose this war is for us to stop fighting it. Now is not the time to lose our nerve.

Nerve has nothing to do with it. That's just another attempt to spin it to make the evil liberals look bad. The simple fact is that people are fed up with kids dying for nothing.
