I was thinking about the overall War on Terror eariler and I cam to realization.
We know the War on Terror will never end because we can’t kill all the terrorists and we shouldn’t even think about talking to them cause they won’t change their minds.
So where does that leave us? It leaves us in a classic Catch 22 situation.
The war will never end, so it never really will be won. But, if it cannot be won, how can we say we are winning? And if we aren’t winning, we better be doing something else.
Someone once said something about Eternal Vigilance – I think it’s time to figure out how Iraq fits into our strategy of Eternal Vigilance.
But as Paul at Powerline said today of Robert Gates “I found Gates’ performance somewhat disappointing, it can be argued that Bush needs a Secretary of Defense who can make nice with the Democrats at least for a while. If nothing else, Gates showed he’s up to that task.”
Yes, cause winning this war is about Bush having a Secretary of Defense that the Democrats get along with.
