Recently there have been several letters about the war in Iraq. I still do not understand why people don't see the big picture. While it's true that the Muslims don't like us and probably will not stand long for a Western-style government, still war was the only resort.
Which would people rather have, terrorists sneaking into our country and hijacking planes or terrorists sneaking into Iraq and fighting our troops?
In a world where people only respect strength, you had better not back down. The same is true today as it was in Vietnam. The trouble in Vietnam was not the decision by President Nixon to end the war by winning the war, but rather by commie liberals who protested in the street. These people caused many in our Congress to withhold funding for our troops.
