Why the war in Iraq is an integral part of the war on terror

Ben Shapiro Shapiro wrote an outstanding article on the war on terror. Kind of puts liberals in their place as morons, instead of “enlighten ones” as they call themselves.
The OM (Old Media) has backed itself in the corner with their constant rants and raves against the war in Iraq. They are running out of ideas to try subverting the administration policies on the war on terror. So they run the same headlines over and over again- kind of like a bad movie you are subjecting yourself too 30 times.
As the President told us in the beginning “This war will not be like the war against Iraq a decade ago, with a decisive liberation of territory and a swift conclusion. It will not look like the air war above Kosovo two years ago, where no ground troops were used and not a single American was lost in combat.
Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have ever seen. It may include dramatic strikes, visible on TV, and covert operations, secret even in success. We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, and drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. (Applause.) From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime. “
Now we hear the constant blathering and hate speech by the left towards America. This in it self should be treason, but you know I want them to have the right to continue too be wrong.
The left should do what they do best – oooh and ahhh one another with silly accolades and make movies. But leave the politics to the ones that love America and are willing to fight and defend her. I will close with a direct quote from General George Patton in his speech to the 3rd army the day before “D-DAY” in 1944. (This speech is not for the faint hearted, you can read it entirely by clicking on his name.)
“You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your homes and your loved ones. Second, you are here for your own self-respect, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, you are here because you are real men and all real men like to fight. When you, here, every one of you, were kids, you all admired the champion marble player, the fastest runner, the toughest boxer, the big league ball players, and the All-American football players. Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor will ever lose war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.”
That is why the men and women fight in Iraq today, to defend America and her citizens. I have yet to see a newspaperman, OM journalist, or movie stop evil people from doing what they do- killing people and causing mayhem for the innocent.
Ditto's to everyone...
