New Mac Johnson column

What We Are Fighting for in Iraq -- Now
Just a few months ago, during the Presidential election, Iraq was the center of the political universe. It was a crisis, at the boiling point, a fiasco, a failure; and all media talk centered on the need for a "quick exit strategy," otherwise known as "John Kerry." The day after the election, the unavoidable crisis that had reached the boiling point was moved to the back burner to simmer indefinitely. Apparently, the unbearable burden became somehow more bearable when it could no longer benefit the Democratic Party to comment upon its weight. So I suppose our surrender will need to be delayed until the midterm elections...

Mac Johnson argues that America is fighting for our very honor in sticking out the Iraq war. And he argues it very well. Read it.
