Damn those soft-on-terror libs!
On Tuesday, I wrote about how Americans were apparently becoming desensitized to the many "turning points" and "milestones" on the road to Iraq's "liberation", and were nonplussed by the recent death of terror "mastermind" Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
A reader left the following comment, which I want to address here because it so perfectly illustrates the kind of arguments that get under my skin in the debate about how best to respond to terror -- I don't mean to pick on the commenter personally.
Let's be honest here: even if this conflict ticked all your progressive boxes, would you have the staying power to see it through? It is a relevant question because a conflict like WWII is taking place. It is not fun and it is long and bloody. But that doesn't mean we should buckle under.
