Philippines Begins Troop Withdrawal

When we find the bad guys doing this, and we will, this will be another day to remember. Nobody pushes our friends around and gets away with it - for long.

"The foreign ministry is coordinating the pullout of the humanitarian contingent with the ministry of defence," Filipino Foreign Secretary Delia Albert said this morning.

"As of today, our head count is down from 51 to 43," she said.

I know there is a lot of frustration about this and I understand it. I guess the question is: Is the symbolism provided by the presence of 51 humanitarian troops worth a man's life?

Regardless of your answer, the Philippines leaves the Coalition of the Willing and joins the brand new Coalition of the Unhinged - move over Spain. I can only hope the Philippines will continue their efforts to eradicate terror in their own country.

God Bless America.
