Next fronts in the War on Terror

Posted by Sal on November 13, 2005

In order to successfully win the War on Terror, two new fronts need to be opened, war waged, and won. Iran and Syria.

Iran is intensifying its nuclear program and is a stronghold for Al Qaeda. Syria is aiding Iraq insurgents, and is suspected of plotting and executing the assassination of the Prime Minister of Lebanon.

I believe that one of the untold reasons why we went into Iraq first was that it provided a convenient staging ground for the next fronts in the war, Syria and Iran. For us to be ultimately successful in the War on Terror, we must ensure that these regimes no longer provide a safe haven for Terrorists, Al Qaeda or otherwise.

We are Winning

Posted by Sal on November 13, 2005

Believe it or not, we are winning the War on Terror (of which the War in Iraq is part). CNN has an interview with Joyce Davis, a terrorism expert (yes, I’m linking to CNN. Shudder.. )

In it she points out how the attacks in Jordan were a “sign of despiration” from the terrorists, that the attacks were a response, in part, to how well we are thwarting many of their attacks.

The war is far from over, but we are winning.

Howard the Duck (from Drudge)

Posted by Mike on November 13, 2005

The Drudge Report is referring to former Presidential candidate and current Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean as “Howard the Duck” for his repeated refusals to appear in a joint segment on Meet the Press with Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman. Also interesting is the juxtaposition of the loon’s picture next to Chicken Little on the main page. (as of the time of this post anyway).

I still prefer the nickname beginning to circulate in the blogosphere: “Howard the Coward.”

What’s wrong Howie? Is lying about the President more difficult when someone calls you on it?

Religion of Peace?

Posted by Mike on November 13, 2005

Dennis Prager asks the questions that even many right thinking individuals lack the courage to ask. Questioning the motives of a relgion can be touchy and rightly so. However an honest analysis of a problem requires truth telling no matter how uncomfortable that may be.

War Opponents are the Liars

Posted by Mike on November 13, 2005

Jonathan Gurwitz does an excellent job of reporting the statements of prominent liberals prior to the liberation of Iraq. For too long, the debate in America over the war has been tarnished by the left’ s false assertions over the runup to war. How many conversations with liberals have you been in where a pre-requisite to discussion has been “conceding” that their often-repeated lies are true?

Sorry liberals. It may have taken a while, but your days of rewriting history are over.
