Do not Leave Prematurely

Hundreds dead and more than 400 wounded in simultaneous bomb
blasts in trains in Mumbai, India by Kashmiri Muslim militants clearly
show how easy it would be for terrorists to create the same mayhem in
our own country. Our homeland security and safety technology are not
the reason for the absence of such incidents in the United States.
Catching a few would-be terrorists who have been more talk than
anything else is hardly making a dent in making us safe.

The true deterrent is what the USA will do if another major terrorist
incident occurs on our soil. A modern-day Nagasaki/Hiroshima type of
retaliation will be high on the president's list.

So if anyone who thinks we should get out of Iraq, they should
understand that it would be an open invitation for the war to come to us.
