"If we do not defeat radical Islam in Iraq, then where

The U.S. House of Representatives is in the middle of their special 'Iraq' debate. Today, Republican Representatives John Shadegg and Peter Hoekstra sent a letter to their fellow Republicans telling them that if they debate Iraq from the Democratic perspective, the Republicans 'lose'.

"We are writing to urge you not to debate the Democratic Iraq resolution on their terms, but rather on ours.

Democrats want to force us to focus on defending the surge, making the case that it will work and explaining why the President's new Iraq policy is different from prior efforts and therefore justified.

We urge you to instead broaden the debate to the threat posed to Americans, the world, and all "unbelievers" by radical Islamists. We would further urge you to join us in educating the American people about the views of radical Islamists and the consequences of not defeating radical Islam in Iraq.

The debate should not be about the surge or its details. This debate should not even be about the Iraq war to date, mistakes that have been made, or whether we can, or cannot, win militarily. If we let Democrats force us into a debate on the surge or the current situation in Iraq, we lose. [...]

Join us in asking our Democratic colleagues the essential question: If we do not defeat radical Isam in Iraq, then where will we do so?

Can't even begin to address the complete illogic of that.

Just call it Stuck on Stupid: Year 3.

Agreed!! No logic involved in this at all!

Logic is a violation of Bush party line.
