The Enemy: Terrorists in Iraq have been targeting polling places and election officials in their attacks. And as Iraq's election draws closer, the violence is escalating. Then I read this statement from the Iraqi terrorists.

"Democracy is a Greek word meaning the rule of the people, which means that the people do what they see fit," said the statement. "This concept is considered apostasy and defies the belief in one God -- Muslims' doctrine."
The terrorists aren't revolting against an occupation. They aren't Iraq's "minutemen". They aren't freedom fighters. They are explicitly fighting against freedom with the goal of defeating democracy in favor of fascist Islamic theocracy.

There are two groups fighting us in Iraq: the Al Qaeda terrorists who want to spread their Taliban-style Islamic dictatorship across the globe and the Baathists who want to bring back the thuggish reign of Saddam Hussein. Both know that their Islamo-fascist way of life is in danger if we succeed in Iraq.

No matter what your initial thoughts on the war in Iraq were, this is now a fight worth supporting. Iraq is the major front in the fight against Al Qaeda and is a crucial stepping stone in changing the culture in the Middle East to bring democracy and freedom to a region sorely lacking it. Even if you don't think this is the path we should have taken in the War on Terrorism, the road to victory now leads through Iraq. Now there is no reason not to support this war.
