Dumbsfeld On Iraq and America

“As our forces strive to protect civilians, the enemy uses civilians as shields. As our troops strive to obey the laws of warfare, the enemy uses those laws against us. As our troops are held to a standard of near perfection, the enemy is held to no standard at all. And while some argue for tossing in the towel, the enemy is waiting and hoping for us to do just that.” (Story)

“The great story of America is instead one of grit, of determination and victory. And that story is still unfolding. Americans didn't cross oceans and settle a wilderness and build history's greatest democracy, only to run away from murderers and extremists who try to kill everyone they cannot convert and try to tear down what they could never build.” (Story)
