The troops will soon be out of money to carry on the war in Iraq. Congress needs to get needed funds to our military.
Our troops are the best ever assembled for warfare. They are all volunteers. They will do their duty in spite of congressional inaction for money.
Our troops are relentless. They adhere to the words of Winston Churchill in 1941. ``There shall be no halting or half measures. We cannot for a minute afford to relax. On the contrary, we must drive ourselves forward with unrelenting zeal.''
So Congress must appropriate money to make that military mission successful. And what is that mission? -
In part, it is what President John F. Kennedy said years ago: ``Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we will pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty.''
And that's just the way it is.
