Heroes Tour Update- Mark Finelli Interview
5 years on, Iraq as an ally?

How Shall It End? ---

................................ With a whimper, in my opinion.

There are tons of opinion pieces out there today. Foaud Ajami at the Wall Street Journal has an opinion today, that the War in Iraq, five years on, has been necessary, stoically fought, and more successful than less. We are left with a better place for Iraqis and Americans in Iraq than what we faced 5 yrs ago.

Those of you whom are regulars know how I feel. It is due to the Dedication to Duty, extremely Honorable conduct, and supreme Commitment of the American Soldier to their mission that the War on Terror is being successfully prosecuted today, and every day since it began on September 11, 2001.

We owe these Men and Women much. Much more than we can ever repay. Our children and grandchildren will know greater Peace and Prosperity than would have been possible for many years, had we not fought this War at least as hard as we have fought it the previous 7 yrs all over the globe and the last 5 yrs in Iraq. It will not be over soon. Your opinions may vary.

But I don't really care. As one famous Man said,  "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."
