4 more years?

While I haven't drunk the whole glass of kool aid on our newly re-elected Commander-in-Chief. I have to admit that there are certain things that are commendable in the way he has handled his job the past 4 years.

Yes, I'll concede that a lot of people will say Iraq has been a failure (at least the members of the mainstream media who tell us what to think will say it has been). But the jury is still out on that. The country is on the verge of having elections where we know that Saddam Hussein will not get 99.999% of the vote (which is the margin of victory I believe he had over every single opponent he ever ran against). We won't know for maybe a generation, maybe two if the money spent and blood that has been shed will pay off. I do know that the reports I've read recently regarding terrorists capturing and murdering fellow Iraqis tell me that the "insurgents" are getting desparate.

And for those of you out there that say "What about the WMD's???" Well, it looks like the administration has given up searching for them. To that I say "Better safe than sorry" Look at the options that were available to the president at the time :

A. Leave Saddam Hussein "contained". He threw the UN weapons inspectors out and wouldn't let them back in. He gave sanctuary to terrorists like Abu Nidal AND there are proven connections with Al Qaeda. The inability of the weapons inspectors to do their jobs and confirm that Saddam was not making nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons means having him in power becomes a liability for us infidels. And the only proof that we might have that he had developed WMD would be a mushroom cloud over a major metropolitan area near you.

B. Go into Iraq and look for yourself. In the process, get rid of a dictator and maybe send a message to other terrorists "Don't fuck with us" (see Khadafi).

I would've chosen option B.

Finally, for the people out there who think we are less safe from terrorists now than prior to the president taking office I call "scoreboard". We haven't had a major terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11.
