The problem with Democrats and war is that they give approval and then want to back out before the job is done. The only real exit plan in any war is to win, regardless of the cost, however unpleasant. War is not a political game; it is a sick, cruel, but often necessary way to preserve the future for those who follow us. Bin Laden was encouraged by the fact that the US quit in Vietnam. This is a stated fact by Bin Laden himself. Islamists do not understand gentility or appeasement. They think that they please their god by killing. There will never be peace with Islam. All Islam is radical; it just remains dormant until it can seize the opportunity.
