You won't see it get much media play, but President Bush gave an excellent speech in South Korea to the troops yesterday, talking lucidly about Iraq. The money quote:
...Zawahiri points to the Vietnam War as a model for al Qaeda. He writes, "The aftermath of the collapse of American power in Vietnam and how they ran and left their agents is noteworthy." The terrorists witnessed our response after the attacks of American —— on American troops in Beirut in 1983, and Mogadishu in 1993. They concluded that America can be made to run again, only this time on a larger scale, with greater consequences. The terrorists are mistaken; America will never run. We will stand and fight, and we will win the war on terror.
This was an excellent speech and makes the case for the GWOT in several paragraphs.
