As it stands now we are getting closer to a loose , loose situation militarily. We have found ourselves being defined as occupiers more and more as we make the effort to appease the militants for the pursuit of peace in Iraq. After the recent offer of amnesty that Al Sadr accepted he demonstrated that he has the upper hand by rejecting these efforts and calling for more violence against iraq and our troops. Also with financing coming from Saddams family in Syria to fund the effort we now have terrorists in another country that we would have to invade to squash them. The global pressure to not advance into another middle eastern country in our fight against terrorism is one thing that would keep us out but we know that politically we will loose the white house as well should we go into Syria. But if we dont the war effort will remain weak. Either way President Bush finds himself in a Catch 22 situation on the loosing side. Because of this i see Kerry/Edwards winning the whitehouse. But they will find the same situation in their laps. And again if politics rules the day we will not make the necessary fight to fight terrorism UNLESS - And I hate to say this. But does anyone disagree with me that the only thing that will unify us politically in the fight against terrorists is more attacks on our shore? It is my feeling that Al Queda is smarter than this and that the real war over here wont begin until complacency sets in again and that may not be until the Democrats are back in office.
