Securing Our Nation

I support our men and women in uniform, securing us from terrorists and securing the new Iraqi, democratically elected government.  The political debate today is whether or not to bring our troops home immediately.  I have voted twice against these “cut and run” resolutions, as it would ensure the collapse of the new government and possibly provide Al-Queda an oil rich nation to fund their terrorist attacks against the United States.  Furthermore, to “cut and run” would give the impression to the world that the United States is too weak to finish the job, which would hurt our ability to negotiate with Iran and North Korea.  We must finish the job, then bring our troops home.
