Brit Hume cut to the heart of the matter this evening in his interview with General Patraeus. He asked, in effect, "So this is a war against Al Qaeda?" and Patraeus answered, "Yes, Al Qaeda and its affiliates". Later, Patraeus asserted that US victory in a Iraq would be a major defeat against Al Qaeda.

The war in Iraq is a war against Al Qaeda. Winning there will be a major defeat for Al Qaeda.

The bad news is that the vast majority of the American public do not realize this. It is not even close to realizing this. The good news is that if we can successfully make this point and drive home the successes of the Surge, we have a very good chance sustaining, even reinforcing, support for the war long enough to win.

Yes, it’s interesting how the libs kep saying we’re failing because we haven’t caught Bin Laden. And sadly, many Americans buy into this mindset. What people need to realize is that this is not just about revenge for 9-11. It’s not about getting even for what Bin Laden orchestrated. It’s about snuffing out the most horrific sources of evil on the earth today - Islamofacism.

Many Americans just don’t see the BIG picture.

Nancy will express her sadness that the general doesn’t even know that Al Quaeda isn’t even there in Iraq.

The bad news is that the vast majority of the American public do not realize this could care less if their soldiers live or die.

There, fixed it.

The war is against MILITANT ISLAM....

Al Qaeda is simply a construction, representing an ideology — solely to distance the Nation States who have declared proxy war against the West...

Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Pakistan and others are the Islamic Nation States who are the womb, bank and ideology foundation upon which the “warring gangs” find sustenance..

The “war agains terror” will not end until the NATION STATES behind the terrorists are “addressed”.....

By simple definition or reading of the Koran — we can NEVER rely upon fundamentalist Muslims to be anything except an “Enemy in Waiting”....
