I have been very concerned that the Democratic Party is preoccupied with handing a defeat to President Bush to the point of being willing to hand the U.S. and the World a defeat in Iraq, when winning is both possible and likely.
In the article below, Senator Joe Lieberman talks about how the Surge is working. He talks of the need to show strength to Iran. I don’t agree with everything he said, but the speech is truly amazing. I urge all Democrats and Republicans to read it and not sabotage the efforts of our President, regardless of which Party that President is from. Especially when many in both parties voted for the authorization to use force against Saddam Hussein!
Please read his speech and consider the enormous consequences of becoming divided and taking a Victory in Iraq and turning it into a Huge Historic Blunder.
“I ask that as future practitioners of foreign policy, you do not become so wedded to a party that you are unwilling to diverge from it, when your convictions diverge from it. Let your views about national security determine your politics, rather than the other way around.If you choose to identify as a Democrat or a Republican, in other words, I encourage each of you to be independent Democrats and independent Republicans.”
