Newt Gingrich wrote a great opinion piece today in the WSJ. I was able to find it on a site that did not require a subscription and have it here.
Newt compares the challenges that Lincoln faced and the mistakes that were made in the Civil War with the challenges the Bush faces and the mistakes that have been made in the war on terror.
He identified three factions that exist on where to go from here.
1. The war is too hard and let's withdraw faction.
2. The stay the course and muddle through it faction.
3. The reorganize everything that needs reorganizing, intensify the war and bring the full might of the US military upon our enemy faction.
I agree with #3. We must defeat terrorism and the states that support them or we will face terrorism far worse than we can even imagine. (Did anybody really imagine what happened on 9/11 before 9/11?) These people truly want us and our way of life eliminated. We need to quit trying to fight the war without going at it 100%.
