Have an Honored Veterans Day

Today is Veterans' Day. A day to honor the men and women who served this country and kept the fires of liberty burning all throughout the world.

May God continue to bless our troops and their mission.



President Bush takes on the Cindy Sheehans of the Left (thanks Michelle Malkin):

"While it is perfectly legitimate to criticize my decision or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began. Some Democrats and anti-war critics are now claiming we manipulated the intelligence and misled the American people about why we went to war. These critics are fully aware that a bipartisan Senate investigation found no evidence of political pressure to change the intelligence community's judgments related to Iraq's weapons programs. They also know that intelligence agencies from around the world agreed with our assessment of Saddam Hussein.
They know the United Nations passed more than a dozen resolutions citing his
development and possession of weapons of mass destruction. Many of these critics supported my opponent during the last election, who explained his
position to support the resolution in the Congress this way: 'When I vote to give the President of the United States the authority to use force, if necessary, to disarm Saddam Hussein, it is because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a threat, and a grave threat, to our security.' That's why more than 100 Democrats in the House and the Senate, who had access to the same intelligence voted to support removing Saddam Hussein from power.
"The stakes in the global War on Terror are too high, and the national interest is too important, for politicians to throw out false charges. These baseless attacks send the wrong signal to our troops and to an enemy that is questioning America's will. As our troops fight a ruthless enemy determined to destroy our way of life, they deserve to know that their elected leaders who send them to war continue to stand behind them. Our troops deserve to know that this support will remain firm when the going gets tough. And our troops deserve to know that whatever our differences in Washington, our will is strong, our Nation is united, and we will settle for nothing less that victory."


The darling of the Left, former President Clinton, bombed Iraq and killed 500 people all to distract us from the Monica Lewinsky affair. The press doesn't ever bring that up, do they? Irrational hatred for Bush is the rule of the day.

Mike-

I agree that Clinton is NO BETTER than Bush Junior... (didn't vote for him again in `96- learned my lesson) He presided over MORE years of oppressive bombing of that god-forsaken stretch of land... he should be brought up on charges as well... for if there is no rule of law over the behavior of nations, what makes them any different than the thug chillin' so prominently a few threads up on your blog (Camden NJ.) I say basically NOTHING! Just the STRONGEST taking what it WANTS from the WEAKER! Throw IDEOLOGY/PROPAGANDA in the trash- they are used to fool us into doing our masters' bidding!

My 2 cents!

Stay cool & be safe!

Shady-

P.S. - Did you ever talk to Sgt. Higg-y over there? Tell him I said "hi" -we're way overdue for a brewski. (His son Nick almost got blown out of a tent in Iraq a while back- hope he's doing okay...)
