We Need a Patton Today
This July 4th as we debate about whether we should be in Iraq ,we seem to forget the past.We didn't ask that question on September 11 ,2001 whether we should be in Iraq. America was just like the American settlers of the past responding to an Indian raid.Just round up a posse and get the Indians ,any Indian will do. So know we are holier than thou,when it comes to our past logic. We shouldn't be there ,we now say. We Americans should not start anything we can not finish .We need to be careful regarding any withdrawals or plans of occupation as this is a recipe of disaster.We create more enemies when we are not careful with our actions.
The bottom line my friends ,is that I would not want us to be in Iraq ,but we are there.The only way for us to come home ,is to come home a winner. General George Patton and those leaders of "The Greatest Generation "need to talk to this generation to give us some focus.
