'The War in Iraq---To Stay or to Leave?
Can we actually LOSE this war?
What would losing the war mean to America?
There are those who think we should leave Iraq immediately.
There are others who do not understand why we ever went in there at all.
The primary reason Americans want the war to end, obviously,is because with each day that passes we lose more and more of America’s finest to the violence that is war. Nobody in America wants to see our men and women die.
Nobody wants war. Nobody here started it. But America cannot let bullies take from us what is most sacred, and just tuck our tails and run.
Can we lose this war? Oh yes we surely can lose this war!
Viet Nam is a case in point. One way to lose it is to leave too soon. We can lose this war by defeating ourselves. We need to stand united about winning this war. Lets all open our eyes and recognize the enemy and their purpose.
Ever hear this proclamation?
“If we are united, there is no way that we can lose. If we stay divided
there is no way we can win!” Think about the name of our country: The UNITED States of America… And “united we stand, divided we fall” or think about the Pledge of Allegiance:
When you Pledge Allegiance to the United States Flag, you take a vow to:
*Be loyal to the Flag itself.
*Be loyal to your own and the other 49 States.
*Be loyal to the Government that unites us all,
*Recognize that we are ONE Nation under God, and that we can not or should not be divided or alone
*Understand that the right to Liberty and Justice belongs to ALL of us.
So what happens if we lose this war?
1. We would no longer be the premier country in the world. Being number one isn’t just about bragging rights.
Being number one decreases America’s vulnerability. The attacks will not subside, but rather will steadily increase.
Remember, they want us dead, not just quiet. The Muslim terrorists stated goal is to “kill all infidels!” That translates into all non-Muslims - not just in the United States, but throughout the world.
We are the last bastion of defense.
2. We would have no future support from other nations, for fear of reprisals and for the reason that they would see, we are impotent and cannot help them.
3. They will pick off the other non-Muslim nations, one at a time. It will be increasingly easier for them. They already hold Spain hostage. It doesn't matter whether it was right or wrong for Spain to withdraw its troops from Iraq. Spain did it because the Muslim terrorists bombed their train and told them to withdraw the troops.
Anything else they want Spain to do, will be done. Spain is finished. The next will probably be France. Our one hope on France is that they might see the light and realize that if we don't win, they are finished too, in that they can't resist the Muslim terrorists without us. However, it may already be too late for France. France is already 20% Muslim.
4. If we lose the war, our production, income, exports and way of life will all vanish as we know it. After losing, who would trade or deal with us, if they were threatened by the terrorists?
If we can't stop the terrorists, how could anyone else? The terrorists fully know what is riding on this war, and therefore they are completely committed to winning, at any cost.
We better know it too and be likewise committed to winning at any cost. AT ANY COST!
One way is to stand united and allow “racial/religious profiling”. I was impressed by something Starr Jones said on The View this morning. She said: “If wide-hipped black women were blowing up subways”... she would EXPECT to be stopped and searched everywhere she goes and would submit to it willingly.
Why wouldn’t she if she has nothing to hide? Why wouldn’t the Muslim dry cleaner on the corner feel the same?
After all, isn’t he an American? Hmmmm….or is he? Maybe that can be judged by his willingness or unwillingness to cooperate fully. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
It is not unusual during wartime for our civil rights to be slightly impinged for the good of the nation.
Come on Americans…let’s get together and do whatever it takes to finish this war and get our men and women home. Join together and cooperate.
Whatever your race or religion, in the end we are all Americans.'
