Don’t cut-and-run in Iraq

Cutting and running will be perceived as weakness by the terrorists and weakness leaves us vulnerable to attack. The President was very clear when we began striking back at the terrorists who attacked and killed thousands of our innocent citizens - he said this war would be difficult, it would be long, and it would require sacrifice. But he also said victory in the end would leave our country, and the world, more safe and secure and I agree with President Bush on this.
