War-What I Expect to Find By Jed Babbin
This article in the American Spectator by Jed Babbin is interesting. It covers what Jed expects to see as he visits Iraq.
- But what if I went to Iraq armed with preconceptions based only on what we "know" from the mainstream media and the Democrats?
Heh...Good point Jed. He covers Ted Kennedy's views
- "I'd expect to see what he called "George Bush's Vietnam." A quagmire, an unwinnable war, an increasingly desperate effort to save an ally who doesn't deserve to be saved in a war that isn't worth the sacrifice of one more American life.
Of course he hits on Murthas BS. But I did love this
- Is a withdrawal from Iraq essential to restoring our military to the strength it needs to win the wider war against terrorists and the nations that support them? Are we better advised to tell the Iraqis that if they don't get their government together, make the compromises they need to end the tribal rivalries among themselves, as Joe Biden believes, that we will abandon them to their own internal strife? Is Hillary right when she says that the president can begin planning to win and conclude the war "by taking responsibilities for the false assurances, faulty evidence and mismanagement of this war," or are apologies for American action what substituted for national security and foreign policy during her husband's administration?
OUCH! I look forward to his posts when he returns. Give it a looksy here.
