No one fights the man who is willing and able to fight.
Our country has only been attacked when we were perceived as weak, either in hardware or willingness to fight. Look back to Pearl Harbor. The Japanese government was convinced we were soft, we would not fight. Look to 9-11. The Islamofacists were convinced we were soft, we would not fight. We would cower at their strength. Afterall, we did nothing after the Lebanon bombing, we did nothing after the first World Trade Center bombing.
We did nothing.
They failed to consider we had done something. We elected a man as President. A man who meant what he said.
We have an excellent opportunity to send many of those who wish our country evil to meet their maker. Iraq is a target rich environment.
Fight's on, Fight's on!
