How will we know when we've won?

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Victories often occur when you see no way to succeed, but refuse to give up anyway.


Kerry, Hillary, Murtha, Pelosi, Boxer, Levin, Edwards, Biden…Lieberman?


With Demos in super high whine gear, demanding we withdraw, send more troops, send less troops, saying the President was right, my vote for the war was a mistake, screaming he lied, he fooled us, stay the course, we've lost the war, Iraq is a mess, where's Bin Ladin, ?


What's a President to do?


We're in the fight of our lives. Islamic fanatics are determined to wipe out America, all of its allies, and Jews anywhere they find them. Right or wrong our government (Congress and the President) have picked Iraq as the focal point of this war. I think it was dead-on. We have been stunningly successful there because of the best trained, most effective volunteer army in the world. Our President has remained steadfast in the face of rising and falling, now rising again polls. The question remains on all minds is "How will we know when we've won?"

VICTORY DEFINED:

Those that throw the right punches have history on their side.


1. Letting those that would attack us know that it will not go unchallenged, no matter where they are or who finances and backs them.

2. Letting new and old friends know we'll stick by them and protect them when they bond themselves with our goals to defeat terrorism with democracy. Remember the slaughter of Iraqis by Saddam after Bush 1 abandoned them to look good for the UN.

3. Having enough confidence in the best troops in the world to let them finish their mission without caving to backstabbing flip-floppers encouraging and comforting our enemies.

4. Knowing we can win a war despite the treason of the Michael Moore's' and George Soros' of the far left.

5. Knowing that elections mean something in this country.

6. The 2 sprouting democracies continuing in Iraq and Afghanistan and others starting up in the area, imperfect as they may be.

7. Achieving a major settlement between the Israelis and ALL her Arab and Muslim neighbors.

8. Providing an understanding with potential loons that it would be fatal to attack the US or any of its allies. See Red China, N. Korea, Syria, and Iran.

9. Getting other enemies to become friends, like Libya and many of the former Soviet allies, like Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, and Poland.

10. A continuance of the all volunteer army to keep pros in and miscreants out.

11. The world should consider us a lion not a paper tiger

12. The realization of Europe that their payoffs from Saddam and coddling of their Muslim populations are meaningless in protecting them from terrorist attack.

13. Moderate Muslims and Mullahs coming out against fanatic Islamic terrorists, as they've done in Jordan and are beginning to do as Muslim on Muslim attacks increase.


The truth of the matter is we won the war the day President Bush stood up on the rubble of the thousands of blown up and burned American bodies, mixed in with the rubble of the two once proud WTC buildings and, arm draped around a heroic firefighter, "…The people who are responsible for this will hear us soon!"


All we need now to seal the deal is sacrifice, forbearance, understanding of the importance of winning this war. We need faith, not blind, but a little leeway that our leaders will get us there. Once we made the decision to go to war, the criticism should have focused on shared victory for our country, our allies and the world itself.


If you're convinced that you're right;


Never give up, never let up, and you'll never let your country down.
