I rarely read anywhere that Iraq is not a singular war that the United States is fighting. But, Victor Davis Hanson hits it right on the head in his latest column http://nationalreview.com.
The DDBMSM for some reason does not get that, like World War II, there are many places where the enemy is. Iraq is but one nation. We know that al-Queda is operating out of Pakistan, but we need a stable government there, even if it is not doing all it can to root out the foreign fighters in its territory. The alternative is worse. Saudi Arabia is in the same situation. We can let the government go to hell, but what is the alternative?
Read this to get a better idea of what the overall War Against Terror is about. Nobody can get to the nub of it better than Mr. Hanson.
