A poll question yet to be asked.

On this fourth of July I've been thinking quite a bit about American resolve and the effects upon this nation if we take the United Kingdom's route and act as if there is no war on terror. The consequences I believe will be frieghtening.
Mnay Democrats tout polls showing most of the American people disapprove of the Iraq war as a sign that its time to fold up shop and head home. The result is a seemingly endless determination by elected officials within our own governement to surrender Iraq and our future to people who seek to do harm to us.
Words cannot describe the frustration I feel about this.

Still, I wonder about the core American attitude. Do Americans really believe there is no war on terror? More specifically, do Americans want to lose in Iraq.
Those are two questions which are not asked, but need to be in light of claims made by a broad swath of Democratics who say the American people are on their side.
It is true that Iraq is not sunshine and roses. At the same time, though, many things are being accomplished outside the lense of the main stream media's coverage.
If Americans knew the truth of what was going on in Iraq and the report comes back in September that we are making progress - then what? I believe Democrats and many in Congress know what - that support may very well climb for the war.
It is for that same reason we will never, ever, see the poll question of whether Americans would like to win in Iraq or if there really is a war on terror.
