What are We Fighting For?

I received an email from a friend today, pointing me towards the subject of today's post. Normally, I take these forwarded email commentaries with a large grain of salt, as their is a lot of forgery possible with today's technology- ask Dan Rather! However, I found the source for this one, so I in turn am pointing you towards it to read for yourselves.

A retired Major general, Vernon Chong of the United States Air Force wrote an article for the magazine eco-logic Powerhouse on October 1, 2005, regarding the war and what it would mean if we lose it. And yes, Virginia, this is a war. Regardless of what our liberal neighbors want to think, this is a war. Only their ignorance and blind hatred of the President have so far made them unable to recognize it. However, as much as I regard them with contempt, i cannot wish that we lose so that they discover first-hand what life under sharia is like. They will be the first to die, since it is their agenda that is most anathemous to the Muslims they so love to praise!

However, that is neither here nor there. General Chong spelled out the situation and its causes very concisely. And one of the things that the General wrote was as follows:

If we lose the 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?

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.

There is much, much more. Major General Chong does not accuse the liberals and their friends in the Press of disloyaty and treason, though I think that is exactly what they are doing, spurred by their hatred of Republicans and conservatives. They consider George Bush a greater threat than Osama Bin Laden. Their mistake. It is not George Bush who will behead them when they wish to protest that pornography is protected. It is not George Bush who will marry off their daughters without their permission, then rape and execute them for 'shaming the family'. It is Muslim extremists. When will the United States wake up? It took the attack on Pearl Harbor to wake us out of our post-World War I sleep. What will it take this time? A Muslim imam dictacting our rights under sharia from the steps of the Supreme Court?

Read the whole thing and make up your own mind.
