Why we're winning the war in Iraq

From the right and always right, commentary by Randy Wright.

A lot of liberal pantywaists have their lingerie all tied up into knots over the war in Iraq. Maybe liberals just don’t like blood and death. But remember: If we don’t fight the terrorists over there, we’re gonna have to fight ’em here.

Some people (liberals, of course) are even suggesting the war in Iraq is a “no-win” war. Excuse me, but war is a good thing! Especially war on terrorists. I say that we are winning merely by being at war!

Remember: War is awesome for the economy. You see, as the war goes on, more and more money is spent by the government with military contractors. This creates more jobs for conservative-type folks, which is definitely a positive for the country.

At the same time, terrorists get killed. And so do many poor people, which is another plus for the economy. War keeps just the right kind of people employed. A lot of money is spent into sectors that give financial support to Republican causes. War is good all around.

You can try using casualty counts, and budgetary numbers, or some other set of metrics to say that we are “losing” the war. But in reality, we are winning the war by just having it. Americans are damn lucky that we are at war.

Am I saying the war should never end? Yes! That is exactly what I am saying. As long as the war isn’t over, we are winning. Think about it. We didn’t lose the Vietnam war until we ended it. If we had never ended it, we would be winning. A so-called “no-win” war is actually a win-win war.

So there you have it. I’m Randy Wright, from the right and always right.
