Liberal ney sayers to the war in Iraq are constantly carping on all the problems and mistakes in the war. What we need to do instead is look at the real goals of the war, correct mistakes that have been made and look at the progress of our efforts.
Victor Davis Hanson in his commentary at National Review Online does exactly that…
In short, every day the American people should have been reminded of, and congratulated on, their country’s singular idealism, its tireless effort to reject the cynical realism of the past, and its near lone effort to make terrible sacrifices to offer the dispossessed Shia and Kurds something better than the exploitation and near genocide of the past — and how all that alone will enhance the long-term security of the United States.
Hanson offers in insight and encourment that both we as a people may need and maybe our leaders may need also to continue to do the right thing.
