Carol Platt Liebau: The Smell of Irresolution

The Smell of Irresolution

Jeff Jacoby points out the link between recent Al Qaeda attacks in Iraq and Iran's seizure of British marines and sailors (and, I'd add, Gaddafi's recent, ridiculous remarks): "The answer in both cases is that this is how totalitarian aggressors react to faintheartedness."

And faintheartedness is exactly what the congressional Democrats are demonstrating.

Perhaps had Jeff studied military strategy concerning insurgencies and guerrilla war instead of being a recent law student, there might be a reason to entertain his pie in the sky speculation.

So, Al Qaeda attacks because the Cheese eating surrender monkeys who are the Democrats are now debating whether to leave Iraq.

So, the solution should logically be - increase the amount of troops in Iraq to the point where the terrorists can no longer operate because they will not attack if America sends more troops.

How many do you wish to send Carol? Another 100,000? How about another 500,000? Why not 1,000,000?

And why didn't Rumsfeld and Bush send that many to occupy Iraq to begin with?

And, seeing as your logic (and Jeff Jacoby's as well) is so correct, why doesn't America seriously talk about invading other threatening countries.

Yes... invade Iran. Invade North Korea. Send millions of US troops there. I dare you.

And then, before you're finished, send US troops into the former Soviet Union states. And why not China? They're not to be trusted are they?

And then, what about countries that just might harbour terrorists? Why not Western Europe? Why not Mexico and Canada?

There was "faintheartedness" before Hitler invaded Poland and Tojo bombed Pearl Harbor. People forget and need to relearn. Faintheartedness does not guarantee peace.
