Iraq: stay the course

"Because the center of gravity for the war on terror is in the U.S., not abroad," Breshahan wrote in his Blogger profile, "I feel it necessary to keep informing and motivating Americans to stay in the fight and not surrender. Through weekly columns in Nebraska newspapers, posting on other blogs, and now through my own blog I hope to encourage as many as possible to keep supporting our troops and persevere in this war on terror."[1]
