Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the Democrats Lack Victory Strategy in Afghanistan
Steve Beren - November 30, 2009
The Democrats, liberal elite media, and the far left so-called "antiwar" movement have often lied about the terrorist threat, the war against Islamic fascism, and the defintion of victory. Sometimes, their lies have been accepted by non-liberals.
One of the biggest lies is that "nobody has defined victory." While the Democrats, liberals, and make that claim, they know it is a lie. Victory has been well defined and clearly defined by many who support victory in the war against Islamic fascism.
But no matter how many times victory has been clearly defined, the leftist elites keep ignoring the explanatory defintions. And with good reason: they oppose a victory strategy, and they favor a strategy of retreat and defeat.
Instead of honestly opposing the legitimate and well-defined goals of the war against Islamic fascist terrorism, the leftists always complained that Presdient Bush "lacks an exit strategy." For the left, "exit" is the most important goal of this defensive war. Sounds better than "retreat, surrender, and defeat," but it is a more palatable phrase. The Democratic/liberal/leftist "antiwar" movement just doesn't understand what victory means. And they also just don't understand what defeat means. Unfortunately, we now have a President who lacks enthusiasm for national security, who has no stomache for a strong military, and has no interest in victory over Islamic fascism.
When President Obama was still just running for president, I warned that he and his party lacked a victory strategy in the war against Islamic fascism - see http://www.berenforcongress.com/democrats.html
Finally, if we have learned anything from the 2006 and 2008 elections, it is that the Republican Party must not water down its conservative principles. It loses elections when it does so. Sure, there is a lot of pressure from the Democrats, the media, the professors, the so-called "antiwar movement," and other liberal elites to back down on our support for the troops and to back down on our support for their mission. But it would be disastrous for us to give in to the leftist antiwar propaganda.
