The war in Iraq has put America at risk
While Bush is over in Iraq he has dropped the ball on home land
security and has put us at risk from attack both at home an aboard.
Pissing off people around the world does not help Americans in anyway.
It does not help our troops stationed or on leave in foreign countries
around the world. It does not help the American tourist who may
decide to visit a foreign country. Our national guard should be
home protecting America and our infrastructure while our troops
should be rooting out Al Qaida and putting the grab on Bin Ladden,
not as targets fighting a war based on lies and miss information.
The problem with leading the people to war based on lies is, fewer
and fewer people willing to join the military and more people willing
to join the other side as fighters or sympathizers. Sympathizers
and people on the fence may pose the greatest threat. Sympathizers
may be willing to provide logistics, money, support, look the other
way or provide other kinds of help while people on the fence may
decide to act. They say those who forget the past are destined to
repeat it. Have they forgotten our forefathers who fought the British,
might does not make right nor does it assure victory. Many a great
empire has been destroyed after their troops had been pushed to
the limit and the war in Iraq is starting to put a strain on ours.
We have not done very well in the wars we start in the name of Democracy
the US has overthrown a government or two however over time few
if any have lasted, wasn't the Shaw of Iran one of our guys. If
China made a move on Taiwan or North Korea started heading south
or Iran or another country made a move on Iraq would we have the
extra man power and artillery to stop them? Some people believe
it is better to fight wars in others countries to keep war from
shores of America. There may have been a time this was true, however
the war on terror is not a war against a country it is war against
groups of individuals who don't like Bush, America or what's going
on Iraq. Bush has put America at risk with his war in Iraq and while
the troops are away the terrorist may come home to roost.
