The Inevitable Victory Line Is Ringing Hollow
I’ve got to agree with David Pryce-Jones:
… [President Obama] admits we are in a fight and the reason we’ll win “is not simply the strength of our arms — it is the strength of our values. The democracy we uphold.” This in the week he’s just been rejoicing about imminently in Cairo removing the strength of arms from Iraq, with Afghanistan to follow as soon as possible. Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, the Iranians going nuclear — and we are to meet them with approval for a mosque at Ground Zero and babbling about upholding democracy? This speech sent a shiver of fear down my spine.
I fear our nation has been so long without an existential threat that we’ve ceased to believe in them.
