WARS AND WHO CAUSED THEM
Posted on Thursday, June 17 @ 05:28:13 CDT by van

News and Views The General Election is less than five months away. It is important for all of us to consider these facts as the presidential candidates confront one another in political debate. Perhaps we can help our poor misguided friends, particularly those who write for the print media and those who "ya-ya"on the airwaves to ponder a few facts about war that most are too lazy to research for themselves. Thanks to a high school classmate, I too can be lazy and re-print much of what she sent me.

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, about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq.

When some claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war, they should be reminded of the following:

FDR - (A DEMOCRAT) 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 - (A DEMOCRAT) 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 - (A DEMOCRAT) started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us.

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

Clinton. - (A DEMOCRAT) 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 President Bush - (A REPUBLICAN) 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- (A DEMOCRAT) 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 Commander-In-Chief is doing a GREAT JOB! The Military moral is high! The biased media hopes we are too ignorant to realize the facts.
