Will They Die In Vain?
Not if we choose right strategy
!
Evan F. Madianos, MD, Contributor

  WAYNE (Pennsylvania) -- "They will not have died in vain", declared President Bush, speaking about the first known US casualites in the War Against Terrorism.
    The truth of that statement, however, will only be known in retrospect. It depends on the still unknown outcome of the war. And that outcome depends on how we define our enemies, our military and diplomatic objective.
     That depends upon whether we choose the appropriate strategy to achieve them, while preventing unnecessary loss of life among our US citizens in the military.
    If bin Laden, his network and Afghanistan are successfully destroyed, and Iran, Iraq, Syria and other terorrist regimes are left intact to further develop nuclear , chemical and biologic weapons of mass destruction aimed at us, we will have won the battle, but certainly lost the war.
     Those who die fighting for our freedom today, will certainly have died in vain-as will thousands, if not millions, of our citizens in years ahead. We can not hope to win a "war against terrorism" by only destroying some of the terrorists.
