Yet the war only was victorious in symbolic ways. We haven't been able to prove that Saddam is dead or inactive in Iraq or not. The only thing we
know is that we don't know what is going on with him. No one really knows what Saddam is doing right now, if he is even doing anything at all; for he
could be dead, but who knows for sure???
So the victory against Saddam is clear. That victory being the fact that we took his dictatorship from his hands. We didn't stop him from getting it
back though. So because of that, this war is only victorious in symbolic ways. For it is well know that Saddam is feared and he could be running an
underground operation. For most of his activites were underground anyway. He is a former revolutionary 'hero' and he knows the tricks of the trade.
So we can't dispute that this war is not an absolute victory unless Saddam is proven dead or no longer a threat. That is the symbolic way we beat
Saddam. That is by showing him we can take his power away.
The symbolic defeat to Bin Laden is the fact that we can take his glory away. For it has been a long awaited destiny of Bin Laden's to be able to
take the fundamentalist radicals of Islam and spread their indoctrination into the systems of Iraqi culture. For it is well known that Iraq is a
strongly secular state. This is a crime in the eyes of the Wahhabi radicals. So we have been able to frustrate two major enemies of ours, but we
haven't gotten rid of their wrath. The wrath they harbor is the fate we hold. We must not fan the flames, or else we are going to get burned. The
next victories over Bin Laden will have to be swift and decisive to be effective to the world view and public opinion. They only need strike once, we
must strike endlessly until everything is destroyed. The terrorists just once, us always. Is this not a threat????
Yeah it is, but it is the threat of ignorant politics. Byrd is one Senator in the system who understands this threat from ignorance. For no man who
breeds ignorance is willing to salvage for his own. Byrd is not ignorant, and knows that he must look after himself and the saftey of others that he
represents. He does that not only publicly, and regionally, but nationally, and internationally.
I praise Bryd for not allowing opposing opinions to sway his polices. He has a strong ideal that he believes in and he holds on to like it were his
sons going to war. He will not back down to people he should face and he won't turn his back on those he should be facing. He is a strong arm
politican. He has strength in his looks and his character. He is an all around good American. He has integrity, honesty, faith, guts, and wisdom. And
he serves and serves and serves and serves and serves. He has done more than most politicans dream of. And he is ready to do more. He will not back
down to anyone, because he has taken an oath to the people and to God. He is fighting for justice and always will be. He has my praise and my love.
God Bless Robert Byrd
