The debate should not be about the surge or its details. This debate should not even be about the Iraq war to date, mistakes that have been made, or whether we can, or cannot, win militarily. If we let Democrats force us into a debate on the surge or the current situation in Iraq, we lose.

Rather, the debate must be about the global threat of the radical Islamic movemebnt... Join us in asking our Democratic colleagues, if we do not defeat the radical Islam in Iraq, then where will we do so?
