As usual, the libs gleeful at American combat deaths and they can't wait to use them as chips in ther game of poker to end a war that they don't even understand.
All I have to say is this: An average of 2.1 deaths per day in Iraq since the war started in mid march of 2003, and in Vietnam, which so many libs like to compare it to, over 14.5 average deaths per day, over 58,000 in over ten years.
Iraq has a Constitution, a fully elected Parliament, an elected President, an elected Prime Minister, a full cabinet. And three independent elections held by ALL the people of Iraq. Iraq is united as one nation, not split in half like Vietnam. And unlike Vietnam, major combat operations in Iraq WERE completed over two years ago. The people we're fighting in Iraq now are NOT military units. They're illegal terrorists cloathed as civilians, fighting like cock roaches in the shadows, and major combat operations were NEVER completed in Vietnam the whole ten years. The active combat in Vietnam was much worse the last year of the war, than it's been in the second or third year in Iraq. And 90% of Iraq never even has any attacks in it anymore, especailly the northern part where the peaceful Kurds and 70% of Iraq's natural resources are. No part of South Vietnam was totally safe from VC and NVA attacks through any part of the war.
Vietnam is 1/3rd the size of Iraq, and was split in two, with our forces never controling any of the northern half. Vietnam never had real elections, or any real democratically elected head of state or a Congress, and Vietnam certainly never had a constituition. We've had troops in Bosnia for over eight years now and not one anti-war radical has protested our presence in Bosnia, because clinton got us in there, so it's okay to be there. During the Vietnam War, it was over five years before real protests got off the ground after JFK started it. The radical liberals of today were protesting Iraq from the start, just because a Republican was President.
Iraq is a victory in progress. To deny that is to deny reality and basic factual statistics. The anti-Iraq movement is a fringe minority of radical left wing liberals, who require the support and collusion of the msm and the democrats for their very survival. Without them, no Americans would believe Iraq is a failure. The American military personnel who return home always have a different picture of Iraq than what the media says. Their millions of friends and family know this, and the truth will be heard. And THAT is that.
VERY well said! I may use some of your information in my arguments and replies back to these brainless libs who don't get it.Hope you don't mind...
