If one has read The Art of War by Sun Tzu, one would have learned among many other valuable lessons, that to enter into war is a last resort. Additionally, only if one has a reasonable chance of winning and then only with overwhelming devastation, (“Shock and Awe”) never losing sight of the purpose until success of conquest is guaranteed.
Does President Bush really know who our enemy is, and has he lost sight of the purpose of this war? Or perhaps I do not know the purpose of this war. Originally I understood it to be; a violation of W.M.D.'s, then it was bomb them before they bomb us. Now, it seems to have evolved from a preemptive defense against the Children of Satan, into a misconceived ideology that these Children of Lucifer can be re-created into the Children of God. Moreover, forcing democracy on a people controlled by the Angel of Death who for over a thousand years has had the agenda of Global Autocracy is a gross mistake in ideological ignorance of this enemies predetermined agenda.
We began this war with overwhelming odds and devastation, once we reached a certain point we seemed to have lost momentum and purpose. Like changing boats in mid stream, it can have undesirable, if not down right disastrous results. We are now subjected to the sanguination of time. We have lost sight of our purpose of origin, and in my opinion, the fortitude and the stomach to win this war.
Left to their own choices the Muslims will voluntarily elect an Islamic dictator to carry on this agenda of world domination. Recent examples are the Palestinian election of the terrorist organization of Hamas not to mention the so-called extremist elections in Egypt, Pakistan, and Iran. The Iraqi constitution was approved by U.S. authorities and elections were limited to U.S. approved candidates. In order for democracy to work in Iraq, the Muslims would have to choose between their religion; and a secular democracy. A Theocracy like Islam and a western type free democracy are just not compatible.
THE BOTTOM LINE: We need to get back on the track of winning this war and put the politicking aside. At least until we bomb this enemy back into the Stone Age where they apparently want to drag the rest of us. Or, we need to get out and let them kill themselves (which they will) before we bleed to death by playing by their rules, instead of the rules of war.
