WSJ: No Surrender

OPINION

No Surrender

By FOUAD AJAMI
March 19, 2008

"I am the same man and do not alter, it is you who change, since in fact you took my advice while unhurt, and waited for misfortune to repent of it . . . But you must not be seduced by citizens like these nor be angry with me -- who, if I voted for war, only did as you did yourselves."

-- Pericles's funeral oration, "The Peloponnesian War" by Thucydides

Wars have never been easy to defend. Even in "heroic" cultures, men and women applauded wars then grew weary of them. This Iraq war, too, was once a popular war. It was authorized and launched in the shadow of 9/11. During the five long years that America has been on the ground in Iraq, the war was increasingly forced to stand alone...

Iraq war veterans say U.S. needs to keep on fighting insurgents

Their message is simple: Too many of their friends and comrades fell under fire to leave Iraq too early.

The Vets for Freedom "Heroes Tour" made a stop Tuesday in Tucson, one day before the fifth anniversary of the start of the war.
