America, the greatest gentile nation on the earth, founded on Christian principles. I fully support our troops and the war effort, I don't get the "crazy" mindset of some people who want to cave-in and bow to terrorists, thinking that if we leave them alone they'll leave us alone.
Need we remind the USA about the 911. They attacked us, we have not only the right, but the responsibility to defend ourselves. In war things happen, but alot of America has turned into a nation of weak minded scaredy cats.
You say, "who do you think you are, you havent lost anyone over there". My son honorably served his tour there, walking patrols and clearing building and being shot at by cowards hiding in the civilian population. We wear uniforms, walk the streets and they call our troops cowards. And my Commanding Officer with his copilot were the first American pilot POW's in the first Iragi war, Dessert Storm.
If this Nation had done its job right and finished the first war we wouldn't be back there now. But the cowardness of many withdrew our troops before that could be done. So, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
We are the first nation all other Countries call on for help.
They want so much from us then turn their noses up at us when they don't need us anymore. When they can't defend themselves our phone rings. Like the nation we have helped secure freedom for, then they throw shoes at our President on national tv. Then, many gather and have a organized shoe throwing protest against our pressence.
But that is the quality that makes us great. Our forgiving spirit that lets us reach out to others in their time of desperation.
Even when we know they will eventually come to protest our very presence. Sometimes, maybe, we should just let them fight their own war then they'd appreciate us more.
