The Only Option - Courier Times February 27, 2005

Contrary to popular thought among the media, and some politicians and college professors who would rather see terrorism succeed than a Republican President, this war on terror is the most important issue of our lives. It's an understatement to call it extremely difficult and risky and there's sure to be additional mistakes, but it's being conducted as near perfectly as possible.
Past restraint was noble, but we're at that point of critical mass where passivity isn't an option. We're not the reason for the failures of oppressive regimes, but our freedom serves well as a useful scapegoat for their shortfalls. Ironically, replacing these hate incubators with freedom itself is the single most effective long-term measure to keep us all safe.
We didn't ask for the attacks of 9/11 and we didn't deserve them, just as we don't deserve future attacks. This war will be won or lost at home.
We're winning against this very real global threat, but those who criticize every move have proven themselves as people who cannot be counted on when needed. Putting politics above all else is likely the most costly mistake of all.
