General Pace On Iraq

Funny how stuff like this rarely makes it into the MSM (From DefenseLink):

The will of the United States is the only question in whether the nation’s effort in Iraq and Afghanistan will succeed, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said today.

“There is no way to militarily lose this war,” Marine Gen. Peter Pace said, speaking to reporters traveling with him while en route here. “The only way we can lose is if we decide that we just don’t want to do it. And if we decide that, that would not end the involvement, it would simply shift it from its current battlefield in Iraq and Afghanistan to our home.”

Pace said support for the war is a concern for him, “because the American military fights the wars that the nation wants us to fight. The American people’s will is a very important part of that,” he said. “I have faith in the American people’s ability to find the right boundaries.”

He said Americans need to remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001. The United States did not start the war, he said,but “if we were to come home, the war would simply follow us home. I believe the American people would understand that.”

Perhaps the left leaning media, as well as the hard left, should read this story. Then they can decide whether their virulent Bush hatred is worth the cost to the United States. Or, are they that desperate for a replay of Vietnam, where the Democratic Congress forced a withdrawl from a war started, and escalated, by Democrats, which demoralized the United States military for over 5 years, and took a massive buildup by President Reagan to repair?
