Thing is, it's only those who are at the head of the government, the body is the people. We the people, how ever, the politicians start wars but in
all reality the threat is there.
The terrorists being a threat is nothing new, they always were a threat. Not until the past decade did the US decide to get directly involved. The
previous involvement was through covert forces like SEAL Team 6, Delta and other formerly hidden counter terrorism units. Only now, we have been
dragged into the global conflict. It was bound to happen, we could not remain untouched by terrorism if it was let to run rampant.
Other countries have been dealing with it for many decades, it was time America opened it's collective eyes and saw what was really going on around
To withdraw from the Mideast, would only convince the extreamists they have won, and encourage those groups to be bolder. Perhaps we should have
gotten involved sooner, but it is to late to play what if games. What more is there to do, other than stand up and try, better than sitting idly by
and closing ones eyes.
If not now then when, if not in Iraq then were, always the threat will exist.
Every one has opinions, based on what they know of the subject. Having been there, I saw what good we did for those people, they need some one to
stand by them and show courage. To not be bullied by Ali Baba, if not us then who.
