My Two Cents...

Here I go again. I tried to sit back and not get all revved up by what's going on in the rear. But when this is the only thing that ever covers the news what do you expect. So here it is. My opinion!

Every president that is elected will be liked by some and disliked by others. Had Kerry been elected, then the supporters of Bush would have felt the way the Kerry supporters feel now. It happens every 4 years when elections come around, so whats new?

In Vietnam, there was very little support for our troops. From what my dad has told me, they came home and people said some mean stuff and did some really awful stuff. Now, it seems that everyday you hear about people supporting the troops, but not supporting the Government. People need to realize that we as a COUNTRY are at war and that we need to stick together and not go around pointing fingers every chance we get. I mean, we have people like Cindy Sheehan. She wanted to meet with the President because her son died at war? No offense, but does she forget what happens in war? We don't drop crayon bombs and throw lipstick at each other unfortunately like she may think. When her son enlisted, he knew what he was doing, so she needs to rethink things. God forbid I die. I hope my parents and family understand that I chose this as my life and as a result of making this adult decision I take on all consiquences of that decision. I for one, am thankful for each and every one of my brother and sister in arms that has joined our armed forces to serve this country. Without their service and dedication America would not be what it is today. It's sad when a soldier loses their life, but they gave it fighting for our freedom. I for one would not want to pull out of here now knowing that all those people had died in vain for us to just give up. We owe these Iraqi people. We came over and tore down their government, houses, and farms. We at least owe it to them to help rebuild.

So this is my 2 cents. Take it or leave it.

I have some question for Mrs. Sheehan. Why didn't you protest the war before the death of your son? Could it be because your son would have disowned you like your husband did?

very well said I was so mad when I read about her "efforts".
She is destroying the memory of her son. Can't she realize that? I think she is weak allowing others to persuade her thinking. Yet making her think it was her idea. Sad really. Heck even Clinton said We have to support Our Troops. Where is her support when they need it the most? FOOLS!!
I support you and appreciate everything you do. I love calling America home and it is Soldiers such as yourself that allows me to do just that. Thank-you and may Gog Bless You.

Lipstick and crayon bombs <---now that is funny! I have never loathed someone so much as her...It not only disgraces our troops but the families at home. I watched a special on Black Hawk Down the other day which i've seen many times...Delta Force Operator said "when we pulled out of somalia because of a 18 men dieing it only made us feel that they died in vain" <---To make the thousands injured and KIA from this war die in vain is not an option...We have to stay till the mission is done! Supporting the troops means supporting the mission! Thank you devildoc and all like you!
