If I was from another world looking in on Planet Earth I would be astounded at the commentary coming out of much of the leadership of the Western world. To listen to them you would think that we were being routed in the War on Terror. The opposition parties in both the US and UK would have us go into an immediate retreat (I wonder if George Soros owns the opposition party in the UK like he owns the Democrats in the US).
While our heroes overseas show guts and resolve every day as they protect us from the terrorists, it is sad that much of our political leadership does not show the same level of resolve. They work hard to skew public opinion against the war, when the real fact is WE ARE WINNING.
In the past three years .. Al-Qaeda has been driven into a state of permanent flight. Its ability to train jihadists has been severely compromised; its financial networks have been ripped apart. Thousands of its activists and enablers have been killed. It’s true that Osama bin Laden’s forces have been regrouping in the border areas of Pakistan but their ability to orchestrate mass terrorism there is severely attenuated. And there are encouraging signs that Pakistanis are starting to take to the offensive against them.
Maybe we should just Cheer up, because despite what the Left-wingers are saying we ARE winning this war on terror:
