Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: Peace in Iraq

Cause out on the edge of darkness,
there rides a peace train
Oh peace train take this country,
come take me home again

Now I've been smiling lately,
thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be,
something good has begun

Come on, peace. Out there in the darkness, I really feel that peace is there. We can have peace. Sure, it will be difficult. Sure, it will require sacrifice. But how much sacrifice, and by whom? We can have peace right now if we surrender to Islam. How many people around the world are willing to do that? An awful lot, from what I read. But can we have peace without surrender?

Only for so long. In other words, we can stop fighting and continue resisting. We can stop attacking and simply defend. If that happens, the price will be high. The price will be death. Many people will be killed by the religion of peace -- but we'll have peace. Are you willing to pay that price, or would you rather obey the words of Mohammad in order to have peace?

Interestingly now, there appears to be only one candidate in the 2008 Presidential election campaign that wants peace and wants peace now. Hillary supports continued military action (today). McCain says pulling out is wrong. Democrats in Congress now say they will continue to fight. In fact, right now, there's only ONE candidate that wants to stop fighting in Iraq -- Ron Paul.

This could be quite an interesting campaign. If the American people, as the Democrats claim, are completely against this war, they will quickly unite behind Ron Paul. At this point, seriously, he is the ONLY presidential candidate that really wants to get out of Iraq now. I wonder if people will hear that message, or if his voice will be drowned out by all the other candidates -- who are ALL pro-war now.
