The big pre-election question

What's the biggest issue facing America right now?

The war in Iraq, of course. If we end that war in any way that can be construed as a retreat, I don't see how we'll recover. Vietnam is already an albatross hanging around the neck of any military operation, but there were over 58,000 Americans dead before we decided to call it quits there. If we give up in Iraq, and all our enemies know that the bar is lowered -- and will continue lowering -- on how much we can be hurt before we give up, that will only encourage them to hurt us all the more. Our enemies know weakness, and what would it take to teach them we mean business if we give up on Iraq? Probably a nuke, and nobody wants to go there.

At this rate, we won't want to have any deaths at all in the next conflict, and then we might as well isolate ourselves. And then the problems will just fester until they're knocking at our door.

If you are so much in favor of the war in Iraq, why is your chicken-$h!t a$$ hiding behind a computer?

I support the troops and oppose the war, but of course that is because I am a United States Army veteran.

Anyone who thinks it was a good idea to invade iraq but doesn't have the guts to enlist is a coward and a blowhard, not worthy of the freedom bought for you by the blood of your betters.

That's like saying you can't be against murder without being a police officer.
