McCains turn

I do not want to be accused of bias like the commercial media, So today, I would like to shed a little light on what I have learned about John McCain. I would first like to comment on his essay that was rejected by the New York Times. I searched, and found his report. and I have some parts I would like to comment on. In McCain's submission to the TIMES, he writes of Obama: 'I am dismayed that he never talks about winning the war—only of ending it... if we don't win the war, our enemies will. A triumph for the terrorists would be a disaster for us. That is something I will not allow to happen as president.' I am not afraid to say that I am thankfull that a candidate would assure me of that. I can see where pulling out of the situation can be a good idea, I just do not want to turn and run. Further into his paper he wrote " Progress has been due primarily to an increase in the number of troops and a change in their strategy. I was an early advocate of the surge at a time when it had few supporters in Washington ". Senator Obama was an equally vocal opponent. He said " I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence there, In fact, I think it will do the reverse ". In January 2007, when General David Petraeus took command in Iraq, he called the situation “hard” but not “hopeless.” And now, 19 months later, violence has fallen by up to 80% to the lowest levels in four years, and Sunni and Shiite terrorists are reeling from a string of defeats. The situation now is full of hope, but considerable hard work remains to consolidate our fragile gains. As for as the debate goes concerning the war, My opinion is to finish what we started. I do not believe that it will take years, but I also do not believe it can be done in months. We are making progress over there and I think we should see it through. I also think if more support were available, it would speed the process.
