War

“Battles are not won by arms alone. There must exist above all else a spiritual impulse-a will to victory. In war there can be no substitute for victory.”  Gen. MacArthur

The United States won the First World War and the Second World War.  We fought very hard and we mobilized the whole nation towards the goal of destroying the enemy and achieving victory.  We did not stop the war part way through because it got hard to win.

We did not stop the war because we lost a lot of men or because we had killed a lot of the enemy.  We kept going until the enemy came to us and asked to surrender.  That is how a war is supposed to be prosecuted.

If you can't or won't mobilize the nation in a drive to victory, then you should not go to war.  If you are unsure of your goals in the war, then don't go to war.  The President must be able to articulate the need for war, explain it to Congress and request a declaration of war; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
