We can not base our national security on foriegn opinion. So what France..Germany or others may think is not important to me. Maybe their objections to us taking out Sadam are motivated by things other than moral issues. As far as how well our men fight has nothing to do with politics.......men in battle fight for the men to their left and right. Common survival in a hostile environment. Has nothing to do with politics or patriotism.
I do agree that getting our troops home as soon as possible is very important regardless of how one feels about this "war". I applaud the right of dissenters to the "war" to protest it. Not many countries allow such freedom of expression. Can anyone honestly say that the world won't be a better place without the current regime in Iraq?
