PRESIDENTS AND WARS
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 18,333 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 two years since terrorists attacked us, President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Lybia, Iran and North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people. We lost 600 soldiers, an average of 30 a year. Bush did all this abroad while not allowing another terrorist attack at home.
Worst president in history? Come on!
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 Teddy 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 military is GREAT! PASS IT ON.
Excellent article, except it assumes that the media is slanting the stories only because journalists are lazy and naïve. While there is certainly truth in those assertions, I'd argue that the majority of journalists are dyed-in-the-wool Leftists who are actively opposed to principles upon which America is founded. Thus, the propaganda they force-feed to the international public has more to do with their deliberate attempt to subvert the United States and our Constitution, than it does with their inability or unwillingness to understand what is really going on.
There were festivals in small Iraqi towns where the children were invited to paint on the concrete barriers that surrounded the coalition forces. They painted clapsed hands, Iraqi and American flags, and faces of smiling children. Did you read about that? No, of course not because it was not reported.
If the reporters don't see in on the TV of the bar in their Baghdad hotel, it didn't happen.
