"February 27, 2003
Dear President Bush:
As women from Iraq who fled our homeland to escape persecution by Saddam Husseins regime, we write to offer our support for your principled leadership. We applaud your determination to disarm Saddam and your commitment to help liberate the people of Iraq. We are daughters, mothers, wives, and sisters whose families and communities have suffered for too long. We stand with you because only the United States and its allies can help the people of Iraq break free from Saddams 34 years of brutal rule.
Those who have taken to the streets with signs reading, No War on Iraq are misled. It is Saddam who has been waging war on the people of Iraq. Every day that this war continues, more of our brothers and sisters will suffer from Saddams totalitarian and racist policies.
A quarter million Iraqis have been murdered in summary executions and mass killings - thousands of them gassed with chemical weapons. Millions have been forcibly displaced in ethnic cleansing campaigns, their homes destroyed, their property seized, their relatives deported and never seen again. Public beheadings, arbitrary arrests, torture and rape are routinely used to intimidate the population. This systematic campaign of terror will never stop until Saddam and the Ba'ath party are removed from power!!
We regret that the use of force to remove Saddams evil regime will entail the suffering of innocent people. But we also know that many lives have been lost in the past and many more will be lost in the future if Saddam is not stopped. The cost of inaction and appeasement would be very high for the people of America and Iraq alike. We know from personal experience that Saddam cannot be contained and will always be a danger to the world.
The Iraqi people will help to liberate their country, just as they heeded Americas call to rise up against Saddam after the Gulf War in 1991. But without American assistance, that uprising was crushed. Some of us participated in that uprising, risking our lives and losing relatives. When the United States comes to our assistance this time, the Iraqi people will not only be grateful, we will join in. But we cannot overthrow Saddam on our own.
We look forward to the day when, with the help of Americans and others of good will, Iraq can take its place as a Free World nation a nation that is founded on the rule of law and equal rights for all citizens, where women participate fully in society, their rights respected and protected. As you plan for a post-Saddam Iraq, we ask you to maintain your commitment to establishing the building blocks of democracy, and to ensure that no neighboring powers interfere militarily with our desire to live in a free, pluralistic and democratic Iraq. Anything less would be an opportunity foregone to dramatically change the fate of millions of Iraqis, and sow the seeds for even greater changes across the Middle East.
"Again, we wish to extend our heartfelt support to you for your leadership, and our gratitude to all Americans who will be asked to risk both lives and treasure to remove Saddam. Know that the Iraqi people will eagerly contribute everything they have to the task. Our prayers are with you, with the American people, and with the Iraqi people."

March 23rd...and they just announced the Patrick Henry Reenactment on WRVA-1140...which you can hear from the Outer Banks to DeeCee to Roanoke to Harrisonburg!!
I sincerely believe Jeff Beck, Michael Graham and Eric Cantor are Lurkers...MUD
Makes me want to post this . . .
Tony Blair: The price of my convictionLet's Roll !!
But there are also consequences of 'stop the war'. There will be no march for the victims of Saddam, no protests about the thousands of children that die needlessly every year under his rule, no righteous anger over the torture chambers which if he is left in power, will remain in being.
I rejoice that we live in a country where peaceful protest is a natural part of our democratic process. But I ask the marchers to understand this.
I do not seek unpopularity as a badge of honour. But sometimes it is the price of leadership and the cost of conviction.
If there are 500,000 on the [Stop the War] march, that is still less than the number of people whose deaths Saddam has been responsible for. If there are one million, that is still less than the number of people who died in the wars he started.
So if the result of peace is Saddam staying in power, not disarmed, then I tell you there are consequences paid in blood for that decision too. But these victims will never be seen, never feature on our TV screens or inspire millions to take to the streets. But they will exist none the less.

Dear Secretary Rumsfeld:
I found an article that shows that the Liberal Loser Peacenik Goobers are being disruptive around your residences in Taos, N.M. I am so sorry to hear that. If they want to show their [in my opinion] stupidity, they should do it peaceably elsewhere. Not at or near your private residence.
Mostly I want to say that I FULLY support you in your dedication to fighting the War on Terror and keeping Americans safe from their reach. I support the operation in Afghanistan and I fully support the upcoming Liberation of Iraq/removal of Saddam Hussein. The people in Iraq will be dancing in the streets when Saddam Hussein is ousted by American Allied forces there ! Good luck and thanks so much !
PS: Here is the article I read. You can go there and look at it if you like. It is posted on http://www.FreeRepublic.com
For Rumsfeld, a land of disenchantment - War protests at his hideaways near Taos no vacation
Feel free to go there and reply if you would like (I posted that article this morning). Or you can e-mail me at. . .
Great thread, MnM...MUD
Bill Clinton showed Tony Blair how to have fun being the leader of a country. George W showed Blair how to be a leader. It would appear that Tony has grown into his position (much like W has) and realised that there are consequences to inaction that far outweigh the rightful unpopular decision.
History will have a much broader view of the situation than today's protesters exhibit.
They must have been diggin' at SADdam when someone said the military was callin' it the . . .
