    We will see.

    This could inflame the terrorists again and cause many more of the last Christians in that country to be killed.

    Sadly, when it comes to this conflict, too many Americans have allowed themselves to buy into the lies of the left. Just because these propagandists claim the war was evil does not make it so. They were wrong about practically everything they said about the war, before, during, and after. There is no reason to even listen to them.
