Sen. Brownback addresses young Democrats

Sen. Sam Brownback addressed an assembly sponsored by the Young Democrats at Washburn Rural High School.

The main point I hope he got across to the kids is that war is hell, but freedom comes with a steep price. Our country today has no pain threshold. The sacrifices of Iraq pail in comparison to the sacrifices made in previous wars, but our enemies know that we don't have the stomach for protracted and painful wars. They can make a mess of things and send home some body bags, and we'll have half the country crying for us to pull out.

I don't like this war either. I wished we could have won in a week and left. But when it's all said and done, and we've got peace in Iraq, we'll have a valuable ally in the middle east--and a launching point for our war against Muslim terrorists.
