I heard a snippet tonight of Glenn Beck‘s reaction to Democrats taking over Congress, and I think he has raised a very interesting point. People are saying that the switch in power was all because of the fighting in Iraq, and the Democrats are talking about cutting and running from there. Not that you’ll hear many say exactly that. They’ll talk about strategic redeployment or focusing our actions elsewhere, but it all amounts to their wanting to yank the military out of Iraq. But since they are announcing their desire to pull out, there is one question that the Democrats are not asking themselves:
What will be the reaction of the terrorists when they hear the Democrats want to pull out of Iraq?
Do you think they will throw up their hands in despair and give up fighting? Or will this news stiffen their resolve to hang on just a little bit longer? I’ll let you think that over.
