First of all, thanks for your service, second of all, great post, third of all, I must say I had the exact same anger swell up in me when I saw the likes of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi exclaim “the war is lost” with this latest war our brave military has now all but won in Iraq.
Bush declared mission accomplished, and at the time it was...So-damn insane was pushed out of his palace and into a rat hole, his sons soon killed and that evil regime was destroyed forever.
Anyone marginally conscious could see the love and admiration our troops had for their CIC on that carrier when W landed and the banner was there. To this day children are being named after Bush in a land desperate for more freedom.
But you’d never know from the modern day Crank-ites and the rats in congress.
The supreme irony, the likes of the Jane Fondas and various other names scratched in permanent infamy in the minds of people that are decent and matter and make this country what it is, wouldn’t enjoy the freedoms they have to bleat such idiocy if not for brave people that died for them and the fact that this IS a good and decent and tolerant country, not the 4th reich these morons make it out to be.
More often than not if this were anywhere else these ignorant toads would be dragged out into the streets and summarily and very publically executed and/or tortured. But this escapes the permnanently mentally crippled left to this very day.
Anyway, most (decent and normal) Americans recognize that the Walter Crank-ites and Jane Fondas of the world are wrong-headed idiots.
My father was there, first in 66-7 with the 5th special forces, then again 69-70 as a helicopter pilot with the 1st cav.
Thanks again Frank.
A big welcome home bro to your dad.
It is a sobering thing to realize the extent to which cultural marxists have infiltrated, corroded and contaminated EVERY major institution in this country. It is now headed by a man who is a lying crypto-marxist demagogic usurper who is the apotheosis of all that the Alinskyite Left have been hoping to install. The vital underpinnings of a civil society will be bulldozed away and a new marxist tinged smiley faced soft totalitarian tyranny erected in it’s place, if Obama is allowed to prevail.
The way in which they undermined the efforts of your dad, and me and my comrades was a harbinger of all that we see today. We must not allow them to invert the moral order and allow this lying demagogue and his corrupt Congress to succeed in thier mission to subvert our constitutional republic.
