Ron Johnson on War & Peace
"We better get ready to invade just about every country in the world then," Feingold said in response, arguing that Al-Qaeda is an international problem that cannot be solved with the invasion of just one country.
A: I believe that withdrawal plan was proposed by Pres. Bush, before Pres. Obama took office, and I hope it will work. I think the Iraqi defense forces are being stood up, and after that will provide the security it needs to establish a functioning democracy.
Q: You disagreed with Sen. Fiengold's votes against the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan?
A: I would never grandstand; I don't want to be an armchair general. For example, public pronouncements from Sen. Harry Reid before he surge had hardly begun, proclaiming the surge lost. That type of grandstanding undermines our efforts. The basic philosophy you need before you send any of our fine young men and women into harm's way in the battlefield is the commander-in-chief first needs to define what victory or success would be, and then be committed to that success. We've achieved that level of success in Iraq, but not in Afghanistan.
