America Will Not Be Defeated

by David Bellavia - March 7th, 2008 - Townhall.com

For as long as I have been associated with the military and veteran organizations I have always been proud of the company I've kept. As easy as it is to say "never quit" you learn to appreciate those near you who actually live their lives by this warrior ethos. And you are deliberately and forever changed by those near you who die by that same warrior ethos.


As . . . ambassadors of America's Warrior Class we feel strongly that, as long as there is a debate taking place on the merits of the conflicts in which we continue to fight and bleed, we will not only participate, we will lead that debate. No one is more qualified or more deserving of that distinction than those brave souls who have continued to re-enlist, tour after tour, to defend our freedoms.


In the name of partisan election cycle politics, television commercials and campaign talking points are now openly designed to sap the will of the American people. This is an effort to take from veterans the honorable and attainable victory our beloved friends gave their lives in exchange. Like the Islamist threat overseas, this dogma will be met head on. We cannot allow the selfish advancement of political agendas to transcend the blood sacrifices made in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Bet on this . . . we will not be defeated.

When I listen to the anti-war supporters of Clinton and Obama, that is the one belief I keep coming back to. In any confict, who would you rather side with? People like the members of Vetsforreedom.org or Moveon.org? Pacifists are losers by definition.

I back Vetsforreedom.org. God bless them and the work they do.
