The Terrorists Would View A Bush Loss As Their Biggest Victory Since 9/11
This excerpt from the Iraqi Blog, “The Mesopotamian” is going to rankle Democrats even though everything in it is not just true, but painfully obvious to anyone who’s paying attention…
“In case President Bush loses the election there would be a massive upsurge of violence, in the belief, rightly or wrongly, by the enemy, that the new leadership is more likely to “cut and run” to use the phrase frequently used by some of my readers. And they would try to inflict as heavy casualties as possible on the American forces to bring about a retreat and withdrawal. It is crucial for them to remove this insurmountable obstacle which stands in their way. They fully realize that with continued American and allies’ commitment, they have no hope of achieving anything.
On the other hand if President Bush is reelected, this will prove to them that the American people are not intimidated despite all their brutality, and that their cause is quite futile. Yes there is little doubt that an election victory by President Bush would be a severe blow and a great disappointment for all the terrorists in the World and all the enemies of America. I believe that such an outcome would result in despair and demoralization of the “insurgent elements” here in Iraq, and would lead to the pro-democracy forces gaining the upper hand eventually. Note that we are not saying that President Bush is perfect, nor even that he is better than the Senator, just that the present situation is such that a change of leadership at this crucial point is going to send an entirely wrong message to all the enemies.”
George Bush is to terrorism what Ronald Reagan was to Communism: its greatest foe. And if he loses, make no mistake about it, the terrorists will view it as their greatest victory since 9/11. Maybe its impolitic to point that out, but it’s true….
