It's begun

The war has begun, and what surprises me most is my sense of relief.

Thank you, God, the waiting is over.

I don't think that speaks particularly ill of me. I have been and remain a strong supporter of President Bush, and an equally strong proponent of the elimination of Saddam and his weapons, and the liberation of the people of Iraq.

Mainly, I know that with American and allied success in this war, the United States will be just that much safer, and that the odds of a chemical, biological or nuclear 9/11 will be that much smaller. And that's good enough for me.

I will sleep with a clear conscience tonight... if I can manage to drag myself away from the news broadcasts.

FDR said it best:

With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.
