I'll take this 1776 comparison seriously when the Iraqi people are left to fend for themselves in their battle for independence.

In 1776, America didn't have 100,000+ foreign troops on our soil, assisting us in our upcoming, protracted battle with the Recoats. If anything, our first patriots used insurgent tactics of hit & run and sniping of British officers (a brilliant tactic, but not along the lines of what was accepted military behavior in those days) to ultimately win, while also dealing with the British Loyalist citizens in their midst by tarring & feathering or hanging.

Yet we managed to whup their British a$$es and write our own Constitution by ourselves.

Save the "But the French helped us!!". They sent a few naval vessels to Yorktown ONLY after it was apparent that America would win independence.

Another Brilliant Satire!

    This ping list is not author-specific for articles I'd like to share. Some for perfect moral clarity, some for provocative thoughts; or simply interesting articles I'd hate to miss myself. (I don't have to agree with the author 100% to feel the need to share an article.) I will try not to abuse the ping list and not to annoy you too much, but on some days there is more of good stuff that is worthy attention. You can see the list of articles I pinged to lately on my page.

       Besides this one, I keep separate PING lists for my favorite authors Victor Davis Hanson, Orson Scott Card, David Warren and Lee Harris (sometimes). You are welcome in or out, just freepmail me (and note which PING list you are talking about).

The true quagmire here is the one the MSM and the Democratic Party finds itself in over their opposition to the Iraq war. Nothing they have wished for, ten thousand dead didn't happen, ME uprising didn't happen, civil war between Shias and Sunnis didn't happen, the vote happened (on schedule), the constitution is happening, and the fly-paper theory is working. What's more, the "link" between Iraq and the war on terror is becoming more apparent every day with no attack on American soil.

We were attacked because we were deemed by our enemies as lacking resolve to fight back, our willingness to shed blood in Iraq is what is making us safer, IMHO. "Unsafe" would better describe the MSM credibility and Dem party seats in congress.

"Here it is, July of 1776, and George W. and his lackeys are just now getting around to declaring what this war is supposedly all about?" complained Loyalist playwright Michael LeMoore. "Washington and his neo-congressionalists rushed us into war at Lexington and Concord, before anyone had 'declared' a single word about independence. Face it: George lied, and people died." Moore was referring to what patriots call "The shot heard 'round the world," when colonial forces fired on British soldiers in violation of accepted international rules of military engagement.
a topic from three or four years ago, figured you'd enjoy it. July 4th had personal significance for George Washington well before 1776.
