Ralph Peters is my favorite foreign affairs columnist. He writes a regular column for the NY Post and the link provided is to a blog that points out the smart stuff in Peters' latest column where he says 2007 was a turning point in the war on terroe and in Iraq. Keep in mind, Peters has been a vocal critic of the Iraq Qar plan in recent years but is a fan of General Petraeus' surge tactics. Peters is a retired Army officer so he knows what he is talking about.
Here is a money quote from the Peters article. I think the quote depicts perfectly the "attytood" of most Dems and Libs in this country..." We should have learned the utility (value) of fighting, instead of letting liberal-elite America-haters inflict their defeatist agenda on our country and on the world".
