Remember 9/11 and American security?

Reader comment on item: War as Social Work?

Submitted by Ivan Barna (United States), May 7, 2003 at 01:26

9/11 was the rudest wake-up call for American security. I expect my President to lead my government to fight those who declared that atrocious war upon us, as well as those who directly or indirectly support that war. If my President decided to go after Sadaam Hussein's evil regime because American security would benefit, then we can now feel much safer than just a few weeks ago. And, if American forces remaining in Iraq prevent another regime to rise which would threaten American security, then let's stay there as long as it takes, as a pre-defined part of our war-plans. So, it's really not "social work" to stay in Iraq until they govern themselves (and their huge oil-wealth) in a manner which no longer threatens American security. It's the logical conclusion of our war efforts which yields the most American security. Dr. Pipes' argument hits the nail right on the head; anyone who doesn't "get it" has a different agenda.
