Clinton Policy Bashed by McCain

(WESTMINSTER, S.C.) — Republican John McCain is accusing Democratic rival Hillary Rodham Clinton of indecisiveness on foreign policy, arguing that the nation can't afford a post-Sept. 11 commander in chief who employs a triangulation policy. [snip]
"Senator McCain is the Senate's biggest supporter of President Bush's escalation there. Senator Clinton wants to end the war and when she is president she will," Zac Wright, Clinton's South Carolina spokesman, said in an e-mailed statement. [...]

The Democrats just don't get it. Bringing the troops home will NOT stop the war. The war will still continue, we just won't be in a defensible position. We will still be attacked - with near impunity. Instead of military trained personnel attacking and being attacked on a front line far from home, the front line will migrate to our doorsteps.
My belief is that an attack here at home is inevitable, however, the severity and scope of it will be greater if we are not causing the enemy to expend the majority of their resources overseas rather than in the country they want to destroy.
This war in Iraq and Afghanistan keeps the enemy leadership constantly on the move and denies them the opportunity to fully organize and build up the resources they need to mount a devastating attack here. The enemy is a fanatical bunch of murderous thugs that care little for their own lives, let alone yours.
Don't be fooled. Bringing the troops home will not stop the war. It only moves the war's front line closer.
