We are at War!


I am sick and tired of those gutless, pansy-*ssed liberals who refuse to pick up a rifle and step up to the plate to defend our nation. And the men and women that choose to NOT show support for our troops!

I am sick to my gut with the media whose constant diet of "military bashing" has hurt us so painfully in the past.

Our young men and women deserve something our Viet Nam veterans NEVER HAD... and that is HOME SUPPORT! As for me, personally, if I see just a hint of the "red" gutless jerks I referred to above I can ONLY see them in one light - that being an enemy of my country now. And you can take that to the bank!

It's TIME to show our true character as a nation. One nation... under God... fighting for the "right stuff". And it is our military who are going to pay the bill.

"There was a time when our national security was based on a standing army here within our borders and shore batteries of artillery along our coasts, and of course, a navy to keep the sea-lanes open for the shipping of things necessary to our well-being. The world has changed. Today, our national security can be threatened in faraway places. It's up to all of us to be aware of the strategic importance of such places and to be ableto identify them." -- Ronald Reagan

Many political pundits, pacifists and media personnel want us to forget the carnage. They say we must focus on the bravery of the rescuers and ignore the cowardice of the killers. They implore us to understand the motivation of the perpetrators. Major television stations have announced they will assist the healing process by not replaying devastating footage of the planes crashing into the Twin Towers. I will NOT forget!

I will not forget the liberal media who abused freedom of the press to kick our country when it was vulnerable and hurting.

I will not forget that CBS anchor Dan Rather preceded President Bush's address to the nation with the snide remark, "No matter how you feel about him, he is still our president."

And I will not forget that ABC's Mark Halperin warned if reporters weren't informed of every little detail of this war, they aren't "likely --nor should they be expected -- to show deference."

I will not forget the Clinton administration equipped Islamic terrorists and their supporters with the world's most sophisticated telecommunications equipment and encryption technology, thereby compromising America's ability to trace terrorist radio, cell phone, land lines, faxes and modem communications.

I will not forget the moral victory handed the North Vietnamese by American war protesters who reviled and spat upon the returning soldiers, Airmen, sailors and Marines.

"We stand here on the only island of freedom that is left in the whole world. There is no place left to flee to... no place to escape to. We defend freedom here or it is gone. There is no place for us to run, only to make a stand. And if we fail, I think we face telling our children, and our children's children, what it was we found more precious than freedom. Because I am sure someday -- if we fail in this --there will be a generation that will ask."
--Ronald Reagan

"... We live in a great and free country only because our forefathers were willing to wage war rather than accept the peace that spells destruction." --Teddy Roosevelt

"Moral truth is the same in every culture, in every time, and in every place... We are in a conflict between good and evil, and America will call evil by its name. We will lead the world in opposing it." --President George W. Bush

My eyes well up with tears when I consider the years so many of our finest and bravest men suffered from injuries that were inflicted upon them by the enemy emboldened by Hanoi Jane, the Cindy Sheehans of this world and Kennedy's, Kerry's and other LIBERAL's rhetoric. The names on the wall. The ones we will never know. Their blood cries out from the ground.
