Global War on Terror

Anyone else notice that the Global War on Terror is back in the headlines? For a while, it seems that they wanted to talk about the War in Afghanistan or the War in Iraq, but talking about the Global War on Terror gave Bush too much credit.

This week, Obama was talking about "the central front in the War on Terror". Ok, it's not the "Global" war and he's trying to focus on Afghanistan, and he's still trying to get us out of Iraq. But it's a change in focus for Obama and attitudes in general.

People like the idea of fighting terror, they just don't like the details.

Obama will never give GWB credit but he needs some national defense cred. He is wrong about the central front part though. While Afghanistan is heating up, we still need to finish the terrorists in Iraq. Doing otherwise is dangerous and will only let them regroup.

Couldn't agree with you more Chuck. We ran out on the Kurds once before, we can't act like that again. We need a strong government in Iraq.

I think this is your first time here, welcome. Please be sure to check out some of my older posts, especially the ones on my presidential platform. I think you'll find them to your liking.
