This was passed along to me from a former boss. We became friends and have kept in touch over the years. Thanks for making me think, again, Bill. :-)


There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq during the month of January.....
In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January.

That's just one American city folks, about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq.

[Let me interject my own comment here. The comments below are meant to be made from a perspective of the big picture. The message is not intended to trivialize the deaths of those who have given their lives in this war on terror. The loss of life and the suffering of the families of every soldier and civilian who has died is not to be taken lightly. Every single life lost is a terrible tragedy. All Americans should be grateful for the sacrifices they have made in the name of protecting our freedom , and say a prayer for the families who have lost loved ones in this war. Their sacrifice for our freedom has earned our eternal gratitude. We will never forget them.]

The following appeared in the Durham, NC local paper as a letter to the editor.

If you have any doubts at all, hopefully this will help put things in perspective for you:

Liberals claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war. They complain about his prosecution of it. One liberal recently claimed Bush was the worst president in U.S. history.

Let's clear up one point: We didn't start the war on terror. It was started by terrorists long BEFORE 9/11.

Let's look at some of the "worst" president and mismanagement claims.

FDR...led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did. From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500 per year.

Truman...finished that war and started one in Korea, North Korea never attacked us. From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,333 per year.

John F. Kennedy...started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us.

Johnson...turned Vietnam into a quagmire. From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost an average of 5,800 per year.

Clinton...went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent. Bosnia never attacked us. He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.

In the two years since terrorists attacked us on September 11, 2001, President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al Qaeda, put nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran and North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.

[Not to mention having stifled, prevented, foiled or stopped any further attacks in the U.S. so far! -Larry]

Worst president in history? Come on! Get real! The only ones who could spout such drivel are the ignorant, the feeble-minded or politicians who are outright lying to further their own political agenda.

The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking, but...

It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch Davidian compound. That was a 51 day operation.

We've been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records.

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.

It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida!!!!

Our military is the GREATEST FORCE on EARTH.

[And their Commander in Chief, President George W. Bush is the man needed to continue to lead them.]

Take a look at this post by Evan Maloney.
Quantum Democrats

I enjoy Evan's thoughtful writing. I especially like the videos he does showing just how silly and ignorant many of the vocal libs really are. Take a gander around his web site and I think you'll get a laugh or two.
