How many more American lives need to be lost?

We all have heard the above numerous times from the Bush hating leftists opposed to the War on Terror in Iraq. We even hear from the Bush hating Democrat party who, along with many Republicans, sat by and allowed terror to grow worldwide, opting to ignore the growing menace.

How many more American, Iraqi, and other lives will be lost if we do not finish the job?

Looking back to Viet Nam, since the left likes to make that comparison, we hightailed it out of there and then cut off any and all support for the South. In a couple years, after much resupply and rebuilding, the North flooded over the border and conquered South Viet Nam, violating the Paris Peace Accords, while we sat back and closed our eyes.

Not until the early 80’s did word start coming out of the "peaceful" takeover that ended up costing millions of lives of Vietnamese, Cambodian and Laotians, with many thousands more lost in the South China Sea escaping as the "Boat People."

This time, however, the enemy has shown they aren't only interested in the Middle East, they want the world.

Abandon Iraq now and you are handing terrorist groups like Al Qaeda a safe haven for more terrorist training camps to eventually launch more 9/11 type attacks against us and our interests.

We would be doing nothing more than condemning our grandchildren to an even bloodier fight against a more emboldened and strengthened enemy, most likely here on our own streets.

Our Troops have voted to stay and fight by the record number of reenlistments. They have the will and all they ask is our support.

They have mine, what about yours?

We Fight Them Over There So We Don’t Have To Fight Them Over Here?

The Bush administration has an open-door policy when it comes to granting student visas to Saudis and Talibanis. As a result, 15,000 students steeped in Wahhabism are now ensconced at colleges and universities throughout the US taking engineering, chemistry and other subjects that will help the unknowable number among them who harbor dreams of jihad to become more effective mass murderers.

Now, with sectarian strife reaching a fever pitch in Iraq – Sunni against Sunni, Sunni against Shia, jihadis against infidels – the administration has bowed to bipartisan pressure from Congress and will allow some 7,000 to emigrate to the US.:
