Oratory Can Be Misleading

Reprint. This article originally was published in the June 2008 edition of the “Union of Americans Reality”.

Conversation is cheap and oratory can be misleading. We should be interested in the record and the facts. An important fact is that early on Barack Obama called for the immediate “withdrawal of all American troops from Iraq”. The position of the Democratic Party was and still is the “withdrawal of all American troops from Iraq”.

It is interesting to note that al-Qaeda strategy was and still is the “withdrawal of all American troops from Iraq”. This strange coincidence leads me to believe that the policy of “withdrawal” might be very dangerous.

Both Iran and North Korea are working on obtaining a nuclear arsenal. Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda are holed up in Northern Pakistan, The al-Qaeda’s assignation of Benazir Bhutto and their current effort to remove Musharraf is an obvious effort to takeover Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal. If the al-Qaeda is successful then the safety, security and future of the American People is at great risk.
Add to the scenario above the threats from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran, to destroy Israel and we have a situation reminiscent of the late 1930’s. If you recall that was Neville Chamberlain’s famous “Peace in our time” following his negotiations with Hitler.

There is the crisis in the Middle East while the leading democracies of the West are having big problems with their Muslim populations. Terrorist attacks in Britain, riots in France all keyed to political events such as elections. So we ask you again…is the withdrawal of all American troops in Iraq good for the American People?
