There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq during January....In the fair
city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January. That's just
one American city, about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq.

When some claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war, state the
following .. 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 18,334
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 years since terrorists attacked us President Bush has: liberated two
countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, 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.

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 Chapaquiddick.

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

Our Commander-In-Chief is doing a GREAT JOB!
The Military morale is high!

The biased media hopes we are too ignorant to realize the facts.

Wait, there's more.......................

JOHN GLENN ON THE SENATE FLOOR
Date: Mon, 26 Jan 2004 11:13

Some people still don't understand why military personnel do what they do
for a living. This exchange between Senators John Glenn and Senator Howard
Metzenbaum is worth reading. Not only is it a pretty impressive impromptu
speech, but it's also a good example of one man's explanation of why men and
women in the armed services do what they do for a living.

This IS a typical, though sad, example of what some who have never served
think of the military.

Senator Metzenbaum to Senator Glenn: "How can you run for Senate when you've
never held a real job?"

Senator Glenn: "I served 23 years in the United States Marine Corps. I
served through two wars. I flew 149 missions. My plane was hit by
anti-aircraft fire on 12 different occasions. I was in the space program.
It wasn't my checkbook, Howard; it was my life on the line. It was not a
nine-to-five job, where I took time off to take the daily cash receipts to
the bank.

I ask you to go with me ... as I went the other day... to a veteran's
hospital and look those men - with their mangled bodies - in the eye, and
tell THEM they didn't hold a job! You go with me to the Space Program at
NASA and go, as I have gone, to the widows and Orphans of Ed White, Gus
Grissom and Roger Chaffee...and you look those kids in the eye and tell them
that their DADS didn't hold a job.

You go with me on Memorial Day and you stand in Arlington National Cemetery,
where I have more friends buried than I'd like to remember, and you watch
those waving flags. You stand there, and you think about this nation, and
you tell ME that those people didn't have a job?

I'll tell you, Howard Metzenbaum; you should be on your knees every day of
your life thanking God that there were some men - SOME MEN - who held REAL
jobs. And they required a dedication to a purpose - and a love of country
and a dedication to duty - that was more important than life itself. And
their self-sacrifice is what made this country possible.

I HAVE held a job, Howard! What about you?"

For those who don't remember - During W.W.II, Howard Metzenbaum was an
attorney representing the Communist Party in the USA. Now he's a Senator!

I really never cared for Senator Glenn's politics...he's a little too 'pink' for my taste. He (and Ted Williams!) did kill their share of commies, though, and thats a good thing. One of my earliest memories is John Glenn's Mercury flight (I have no memory of Shepard's)...he was one of my first 'heroes' who was not a family member.

And Howard Metzenbaum? He's just a Bolshevik who is unworthy of further comment by thinking people.
