Hello Jim Wright,

Something in the mettle of your letter leads me to wonder if you are a member of the brave veterans of our armed forces. Yes?

I quite agree with you - war is won by offensive, not defensive measure.

The obstacle is not the fact these enemies have no uniform; nor a central, conventional army.

The obstacle is the lack of the Free World's stomach for what equals victory.

Until the modern world re-visits what caused triumph in WWII, this war with Islam will continue, indefinetly.
