We are at WAR, part 2

My last post concerned an e-mail I received earlier in August.  The e-mail contained comments written by Dr. Vernon Chong, Major General, USAF, Retired.  That first post entitled “We are at WAR” also gives a website for his biography.  Tonight, I present part two of his comments.

“So with that background, now to the two major questions:

  1. Can we lose this war?
  2. What does losing really mean?

If we are to win, we must clearly answer these two pivotal questions.  

We can definitely lose this war, and as anomalous as it may sound, the major reason we can lose is that so many of us simply do not fathom the answer to the second question—what does losing mean?  (We will lose if we do not have the will to continue a war that can not and will not be won by using a conventional war model.  Those who have short attention spans and demand instant gratification must not be the influencing, deciding voice in this conflict.  Defeating guerrilla warfare and terrorist tactics demands perseverance and sacrifice something that modern Americans seem to lack.  We had better realize the consequences of appeasement quickly or suffer the consequences of our unwillingness to face the realities of this type of war.—my addition)

It would appear that a great many of us think that losing the war means hanging our heads, bringing the troops home and going on about our business, like post Vietnam.  This is as far from the truth as one can get.

What losing really means is:

We would no longer be the premier country in the world.  The attacks will not subside, but rather will steadily increase.  Remember, they want us dead, not just quiet.  (I think that needs to be repeated and repeated and repeated.  THEY WANT US DEAD!!!—my addition.)  If they had just wanted us quiet, they would not have produced an increasing series of attacks against us, over the past 18 years.  The plan was clearly, for terrorists to attack us, until we were neutered and submissive to them.

We would of course have no future support from other nations, for fear of reprisals and for the reason that they would see, we are impotent and cannot help them.

They will pick off the other non-Muslim nations, one at a time.  It doesn’t matter whether it was right or wrong for Spain to withdraw its troops from Iraq.  Spain did it because the Muslim terrorists bombed their train and told them to withdraw the troops.  Anything else they want Spain to do will be done.  Spain is finished.  (Spain is an example of the weak willed easily buckling under to one terrorist action.  The cases will multiple if we do not stand strong and stand firm.  I don’t care how much libertine Democrats ridicule that concept.  They will never be able to stop terrorists with their appeasement tactics—never.  Terrorists see appeasement as weakness and use that weakness to their advantage.—my addition)

The next will probably be France.  Our one hope on France is that they might see the light and realize that if we don’t win, they are finished too, in that they can’t resist the Muslim terrorists without us.  However, it may already be too late for France.  France is already 20% Muslim and fading fast!  (I would not hold my breath waiting for France to see the light.  They seem to be already blind.—my addition)

If we lose this war, our production, income, exports and way of life will all vanish as we know it.  After losing, who would trade or deal with us, if they were threatened by the Muslims.  If we can’t stop the Muslims, how could anyone else?  (I don’t think it will happen as quickly as the author implies.  But, make no mistake about it, losing in Iraq by pulling out prematurely will only embolden the terrorists and make life more difficult than it is now.  You can not compromise with terrorists because terrorists don’t accept compromise except as a delaying tactic to strengthen their cause.  Terrorists murder and slaughter because that is the only way they see to achieve their objectives.  They are not rational.  They are killers!!!—my addition)

The Muslims fully know what is riding on this war, and therefore are completely committed to winning, at any cost.  We better know it too and be likewise committed to winning at any cost.  (I would not say at any cost [We must not give up our Christian morality to win although we have given too much of it up in the U.S. already—murdering the unborn, homosexuality as a civil right, removal of GOD from the public arena.], but this is an important paragraph and it is the difference between us and them.  They are willing to sacrifice their lives for their cause.  We complain about every little inconvenience.  We had better wake up!!!  The strongest does not always win in part because they have grown fat and unwilling to sacrifice for the greater good.  The terrorists expect us to lose our will to fight long before they do.  [While typing this, I just heard an ABC radio newscast that said 52% of the public does not think the Iraq War is worth the sacrifice.  Have we lost already?  I pity us if that poll is correct.  We are too fat and comfortable for our own good!!!]    Listening to libertine Democrats, I can understand why they believe that will happen.  All they have to do is outlast us.  Given our short attention spans and our obsession with comfort and materialism, given our sinfulness and decadence; why wouldn’t they expect to outlast us?—my addition)            

Why do I go on at such lengths about the results of losing?  Simple.  Until we recognize the costs of losing, we cannot unite and really put 100% of our thoughts and efforts into winning.  And it is going to take that 100% effort to win.  (If true, we are in serious trouble!—my addition)

So, how do we lose the war?

Again, the answer is simple.  We can lose the war by ‘imploding.’  That is, defeating ourselves by refusing to recognize the enemy and their purpose, and really digging in and lending full support to the war effort.  If we are united, there is no way that we can lose.  If we continue to be divided, there is no way that we can win!  (Again, are we in trouble?  We had better start praying and better start acting!!!—my addition)

(To be continued)
