    Tomorrow, with many of my comrades, I will stand guard at the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C. We will stand there quietly, conducting ourselves with the dignity and honor that the memorial deserves, for all the friends we left behind in Vietnam. We come there to guard the wall against demonstrators who come to protest the Iraq War and who reportedly want to deface the wall as some of them painted the steps of the U.S. Capitol in another demonstration this year. We will peacefully stand guard between them and the memorial on which the names of so...
  • Ostrich crowd shows us its worst side (Anti-War Left)

    Rather than confront and resolve an unpleasant encounter, an ostrich is said to stick its head in the sand. The inevitable consequence of this posture is the worst possible part of the ostrich is exposed for all the world to see. The no-war-at-any-price crowd that descended on Washington this week is much like the proverbial ostrich: Rather than confront and resolve the unpleasant reality in Iraq, they stick their heads in the sand and expose to the world the worst possible part of their structure. The get-out-now folks choose to see no further than the darkness of the hole their...

    The DRUDGE REPORT has learned from a top GOP operative that the Republican National Committee will provide state parties with a web video prior to release tomorrow afternoon that shows a white flag waving over images of Democrat leaders making anti-war remarks. The ad is in response to the controversial comments Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean and 2004 Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry made earlier in the week. A Democratic strategist who had the web ad described to her said, “This is way over the top but we have no one to blame but Dean, Kerry and others who continue...
  • J.D. Hayworth Led Charge that Exposed Dems' War Hypocrisy

    Who was it who came up with the brilliant political strategy that called on Democrats Friday to put up or shut up on their Iraq war complaints? None other than Arizona Republican Rep. J.D. Hayworth, whose push for a full House vote on Rep. John Murtha's call for an immediate pullout had Democrats first squirming, then fuming that it was unfair for the GOP to call their bluff. The result: a 403 to 3 rout that turned the tables on the chorus of complainers - and had Republicans cheering that finally someone had figured out how to use their congressional...

    The anti-war Left couldn't wait for the death of the 2,000th soldier in Iraq. Peace activists have been gearing up for protests, vigils, and other events this week to mark the completely bogus milestone. Why 2,000? Was the 2nd or 555th or 1,678th death not as worth mourning as any other death with nice round numbers? Cindy Sheehan barely contained her macabre lust for the spotlight in preparation for the artificially constructed, media-hyped occasion. "I'm going to go to Washington, D.C., and I'm going to give a speech at the White House, and after I do, I'm going to tie...

    More bad news for the "support-the-troops-but-oppose-the-war" crowd. On Friday the American Legion said they're declaring war on anti-war protesters, and they're starting a letter-writing campaign from soldiers fighting in Iraq who want to get their side of the story out. "America needs to hear the good news firsthand from those who are fighting the war in Iraq and Afghanistan," said Legion National Commander Tom Bock in a press release excerpted by the liberal web site Raw Story. "It's about time that the American public hears about the positive things our soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen and coastguardsmen are doing for our...

    U.S. flagbearer booed off stage Multiculturalism day at Wagar High. Thought to be protest against Iraq war, jeering leaves Grade 9 student in tears A U.S.-born teenager carrying a U.S. flag in a multiculturalism parade was booed off stage and reduced to tears by fellow students at Wagar High School on Thursday, in an apparent protest against the Iraq war. A year ago today, the U.S. led the invasion of Iraq. A parade of flags representing every nationality at the school - 39, this year - is an annual event at Wagar, the most ethnically diverse high school in the...

    In the 2000 presidential election, I was a stalwart supporter of Ralph Nader. A disgruntled volunteer for the Bill Bradley campaign, I was so riled at the former senator's loss to Al Gore in the primary that I made the leap to the Green Party. I gathered nomination signatures for Nader at my town's dump, represented him in my high school mock presidential debate and enthusiastically cheered him on from the front row at his "Super Rally" held at the Fleet Center in Boston. So I did not feel totally out of place last Saturday at the New Haven County...

    SAY "YES" TO WAR ON IRAQ by Dan Savage Liberals Against Liberation "No to War! No to Oppression!" The above anti-war message was delivered to me via a sad-looking pink poster. I pulled the poster off a light pole and hung it in my office over my desk. I look at the poster every day when I sit down to work, and every day I wonder how and when the American left lost its moral compass. You see, lefties, there are times when saying "no" to war means saying "yes" to oppression. Don't believe me? Go ask a Czech or...

    THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: "With regimes like the Iraqi one, there will be no peace in the Middle East. You cannot contain a regime like Saddam Hussein's. That was a mistake of the West. So the question is: Is America ready to face up to the mistakes it made in '91 and in the '80s? Are the Americans ready to support democracy? Because people like Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden grew out of the Middle East. They are not products of Afghanistan." - Thomas von der Osten-Sacken, a leading German expert and activist on Iraq. This interview is persuasive...
