Important Reminder

Hey, we're at war.

I know maybe that's not obvious to everyone, but it's true. We're not at war because it's July 7th and London has been attacked. What happened today in London is another battle in the War on Terror. It's not just an attack. It's not something new, it's the war we've been fighting for the last 4 years.

Some people in the news don't seem to understand this. Others say that these attacks have put "the war on terror back in the forefront of people's minds."

It shouldn't have left. Terror shouldn't be the number 3 issue behind poverty and the environment. If we don't successfully fight the terrorists, there's no point in worrying about anything else because we won't be able to fight over those other things.

We need to win this war so that we can go back to the days when we had the luxury of worrying about poverty and environmental issues most of all. We're at war. Today we saw all over the news what the War on Terror is about. But there are American troops all over the world who see the War on Terror every day. Denying or forgetting about this war is an affront to our brave military. It is anything but support for our troops.
