What Happens When You Lack Ruthlessness

This is what happens.

Secret U.S. Mission Hauls Uranium From Iraq On July 5, 2008, the Associated Press (AP) released a story titled: Secret U.S. mission hauls uranium from Iraq .

The opening paragraph is as follows: The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program – a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium – reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.

We have been hearing from the far-left for more than five years how, “Bush lied.” Somehow, that slogan loses its credibility now that 550 metric tons of Saddam’s yellowcake, used for nuclear weapon enrichment, has been discovered and shipped to Canada for its new use as nuclear energy. It appears that American troops found the 550 metric tons of uranium in 2003 after invading Iraq .

They had to sit on this information and the uranium itself, for fear of terrorists attempting to steal it. It was guarded and kept safe by our military in a 23,000-acre site with large sand beams surrounding the site

By now it is too late since the enemy’s propaganda has already done their damage. It’s fine if you have 100,000 men up against the enemy’s 20,000, but that is only true if you can prevent the 20,000 from seizing your capital’s fortress citadel. Your 100k vs 20k means victory for you only up until the 20k occupies an important piece of territory. Bush, by allowing his enemies to do whatever they pleased in the UN and in domestic America, just kept giving away the game. The only thing that saved Bush and Iraq, in the end, were Bush’s character virtues (which included stubbornness) and the quality and genius capability of the United States military.
