Ceding the Field
The United States with our military withdrawal left Iraq to her own devices, leading to chaos and more internecine violence which is still increasing. Barack Hussein Obama is preparing to abandon Afghanistan as well to the tender mercies of the Taliban. America's retreat sends exactly the wrong message- that we lack resolve- and in a battle of the wills, expansionist Islam has been given the upper hand. We only further embolden jihad and invite attack on the homeland itself by closing embassies and being seen to be cowering because of an al-Qaeda threat. When you take the fight to the enemy, you leave him off balance and unable to take the offensive, but when you take flight, the opponent gains confidence and the chance to plan and attack Americans at the time of his choosing.
