We are in a very long game with people who will wait decades to get the upper hand on you and then kill you. They are raised that way, with 5 years old and up indoctrinated to hate us. It has been a fallacy of the liberals in the U.S. to cut and run when they get tired of war. They simply don't have the backbone for it. They think that when we leave our enemies alone they will leave us alone and that just isn't the case. In the middle east, Islamic prophecy is that they will take over the world and kill anyone who doesn't capitulate to their faith. So, unless you want to adopt a religion that calls for the 'honor killing' of women who are guilty of no more than flirting with a man not her husband or more than a hundred dreaded similar do's and don'ts, you need to understand that we don't have the luxury of quitting.
