Retreat Isn't an Option
January 23, 2007
Sen. Hillary Clinton declared this weekend, " I'm in to win." Anyone who has watched her remarkable trajectory can have no doubt that she'll do whatever it takes to win the presidency. I wish she felt the same way about the war.
* America faces an existential threat. This is not, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi has claimed, a "situation to be solved." (excerpt) We will have to fight these terrorists to the death somewhere, sometime. We can't negotiate with them or "solve" their jihad.
*Quitting helps the terrorists.
... we hear such words as "redeployment," "drawdown" or "troop cap." Let's be clear: If we restrict the ability of our troops to fight and win this war, we help the terrorists. Don't take my word for it. Read the plans of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and Ayman Zawahiri to drive America from Iraq, establish a base for al-Qaeda and spread jihad across the Middle East. The terrorists are counting on us to lose our will and retreat under pressure.
* Retreat from Iraq hurts us in the broader war.
We are fighting the war on terrorism with allies across the globe..., (excerpt)... many of them won't continue to fight if they believe we're abandoning them.
* Our soldiers will win if we let them.
Read their blogs. Talk to them. They know that free people must fight to defend their freedom. No force on Earth -- (excerpt)...can defeat our soldiers militarily. American troops will win if we show even one-tenth the courage here at home that they show every day on the battlefield.
It's time for everyone -- Republicans and Democrats -- to stop trying to find ways for America to quit. Victory is the only option.

I think it should be posted several more times and emailed to others before the election in '08

Ditto that. Hadn't seen it. If it is a repost, thank you.
President Cheney should give to the order now to knock out Iran’s nuke facilities. One way or another it will have to be done....best to get it over with and then drop that Iranian runt and his old ayatollah down the Hidden Mahdi’s well. Punctuate it all by letting a hundred GOP elephants sh&t down the well.
“President Cheney should give to the order now to knock out Irans nuke facilities.”
You may have something there ...
And then Lynn should announce her candidacy for president. No kidding.

You say that like it’s a bad thing.......
no, I said he may have something there
NO kidding Liz Cheney should run, she would give Hillary a run for her money.
Retreat is not an option in this war....but L. Cheney for VP is.
Lynn Cheney and Fred Thompson on the same ticket. The brain power there would kill any democrat candidate...
Dick needs to step down "for health reasons" and President Bush should appoint Lynn to replace her husband as VP. Think about it.
