Being war-weary is not a good enough reason not to go to war!
If people don't like to swim but the boat they are riding in capsizes, they will do it in order to survive!
If someone is afraid of hospitals but they fall and break their arm, they will go to the emergency room and get it fixed!
If a family member is trapped on top of a ladder but you are afraid of heights, you will scale it anyway to save them.
If you are afraid to fly but an emergency dictates that you need to be cross country by the next day, you will fly in order to get there.
If you faint at the sight of blood and your child rips up their leg and is bleeding profusely, you will rush to their side to take care of them!
IF AN ENEMY IS SWORN TO YOUR DEATH AND DESTRUCTION ALONG WITH THE DEATH AND DESTRUCTION OF ANYONE ELSE WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE AS THEY DO, THE LUXURY TO SIT BACK DUE TO WAR-WEARINESS DOES NOT EXIST!
We send politicians to Washington to do our bidding and that includes protecting our nation even if the decision to do so might cost them an election because a majority of the people are war-weary!
The alternative to not fighting, and it's a bad one, is to do what Barack Obama is doing which is nothing based on the pretense that Americans are tired of conflict.
No one has told our enemies that's the case and it is time for our politicians to do the right thing and not simply the politically expedient one.
Barack Obama needs to take more interest in national security and less in community specific crises, even if the first he could care less about and the latter furthers one of his primary agendas.
