It is a shame the way some people can link whole groups under a heading of their choice, then when the tables are turned, try
and change the
whole concept of the situation.
No, we are not all in this together. I am in it because I want to try and make sure there are no more September
11's. I am in it because I hate to see all the years of bloodshed by our forefathers go for naught.
These people have already hit us on American soil, and for anyone to think it won't happen again is pure folly. You might be
a World Citizen,
but I am an American.
First, last, and foremost an American. And, as an American, I want to see Old Glory wave forever. And I would like to
think I am not helpless to fight the overthrow of our government.
I cannot believe anyone professing to be halfway intelligent calling any war a "soap opera." And if this war seems to be
then it is proof the coalition forces are the best trained troops in the world BAR NONE!
Evidently someone didn't spend enough time watching the news and current events on T.V. If they had, they would know
the events that led
up to this action. And I, along with five of my brothers, have worn military uniforms, so please don't again put everyone in the
category of "Sideline Soldier."
Now I would like to recall what was said about the real truth remaining the truth. Let us try and examine the real truth,if
there is such. Lets
start with the first Gulf War. This was a U.N. sanctioned war, and we went there at the bidding of the United
Nations, because we are a member
of that Alliance. And, as in so many previous U.N.sanctioned actions, we accepted the brunt of the cost. We, along with the
participating U.N.troops, did another remarkable job of accomplishing the mission with minimum loss to civilian life.When the
cease fire, they drew up a cease fire agreement which Saddam Hussein signed in good faith. But honor must be a word he
because he breached several articles of the agreement.
In the meantime, the Senior President Bush was ousted from office, and the new President Clinton supposedly made a
demand that the
articles of the cease fire agreement be honored. It must have been a very weak demand, because the U.N. basically ignored
Then came September 11, 2001. Surely everyone knows about this event,but in case some weren't in the comfort of their
living room watching
a "Soap Opera " of World Events, on that day a group of poor,deprived Middle Easterners, some of whom had been in this
country for at
least 7 years, accepting all the freebies and handouts granted them by this mean old government, decided they wanted to
"Kill the goose that laid the Golden Egg." And like the cowards they were, high-jacked four airlines and did their dirty work.
Now this is not
halfway around the world. This is right here in the United States, and not all that far from good old West Virginia.
If it comes the day we are again attacked on our home soil, I hope to God I am surrounded by the warriors some choose to
degrade,and not by
a bunch of Lily-Livered Pacifists who would lie down and be murdered rather than fight for anyone or anything, loved ones
the men I would rather die beside.These are the type of men who shed their blood so all the duty shirking Peace Activists
could have the right
to march in protest of everything they don't agree with.God Bless President Bush and keep him active and strong.
