(AgapePress) - The Mississippi truck driver who was taken hostage in Iraq one year ago says if America does not "stay the course," the next generation of Iraqis will continue the war of terrorism being waged against the West. http://www.theconservativevoice.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=4655

He is so right!! We must finish the fight.... or we will see more attacks here in the US. I know many people feel this invasion was about the oil.....but I feel Mr. Hammil hits the nail on the head here....
Hamill endured, and eventually got free. Since his ordeal, he says he has come to realize that the fight against terrorism must be taken to Iraq, and the mindset of an entire generation must be re-oriented. "I'm not saying we're trying to change anything -- we're not trying to change those people -- but we're trying to change their minds a little bit, the way they think about us," he says.
If that does not happen, the former hostage says, "This next generation is going to be raised up indoctrinated with hate, and they're going to want us dead. They're going to want to kill us."
Hamill also believes that if Americans becomes unwilling to keep taking the fight to the terrorists, soon the country will end up fighting the enemy "here in our own backyard," on U.S. soil. Americans are too comfortable, he contends, adding that many need to understand that if terrorists are not hunted down, they will keep coming, driven as they are by an ideology that teaches that martyrdom is the ultimate path to God.
Thanks again farquar for the article.
