One month does not make every month. I believe we are headed for about 60 or so this month. All of us in the military knew these would be tougher months as we head toward June 30. Those against the US are desperate and pulling out all stops, but they are still losing.
What is amazing, and not reported in the US press, is that Pres Bush is supported by more Iraqis than Americans. Very strange.
We have become a country that demands perfection and very short wars. Totally afraid to take any risks. I shudder to think of what Roosevelt would have been faced with in WWII. A year after Pearl Harbor, we had our lunch handed to us in North Africa. I am so glad Americans did not panic then and force the President to withdraw and give into the Nazis.
Since 1898, the average time required to affect post-conflict operations following a war that we won has been 4+years. We are now at 1 year, yet too many "conservations" are panicking because of leftist news reporting and Michael Moore types.
I choose to stay with Bush rather than Michael Moore. After the election, we can argue about better ways to take out terrorists if you like, but until then all the carping is only helping Kerry, and more importantly to me, destroying the moral of our troops.
