Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Another very good GWB speech

Here. A taste:

Some look at the challenges in Iraq and conclude that the war is lost, and not worth another dime or another day. I don’t believe that. Our military commanders do not believe that. Our troops in the field, who bear the burden and make the sacrifice, do not believe that America has lost. And not even the terrorists believe it. We know from their own communications that they feel a tightening noose, and fear the rise of a democratic Iraq.


The terrorists will continue to have the coward’s power to plant roadside bombs and recruit suicide bombers. And you will continue to see the grim results on the evening news. This proves that the war is difficult -- it doesn’t mean that we are losing. Behind the images of chaos that terrorists create for the cameras, we are making steady gains with a clear objective in view.

A powerful two paragraphs. During the time of the American Revolution there were those who thought the cause to be unjust and "not worth another dime." However, the Revolutionaries stuck together; they kept hanging in there. Now, roughly 230 years later, look what we have become. Some of the American people need to understand that this is a slow process; they/we can’t possibly expect it to happen overnight. Just like the Bush administration has been saying, we can’t leave until the job is done. The world at large, not just Iraq and America, will prosper as a result.
