First off, thanks for taking the time to drop by. HimOverSin, aka Hos, aka Craig. They only allow me 1,200 letters? That's just not fair. I mean, my love for my computer is a good 800 letters alone. To talk "About Me" I have to mention Jesus since He's all that is good in me. I also love my family, country, and free speech, so speak freely in a respectful way.

Rambling but True
Every time I watch the news I remember why I rarely watch the news. The 2nd guessing about the Iraq war while our soldiers fight and some die for our country. Some senators and activists have called our troops terms that I will not describe here.
The same politicians who agreed for the Prez. to do whatever it took to oust Saddam are now saying we shouldn't of gone there. Pres. Bush almost never calls out his critics by name while they lamblast his nightly. They try to hurt the Prez and if our soldiers are hurt by their words with this "unjust" war and if our enemies are helped by these same words, oh well. At least they took a cheap shot at the President!
Email me if you want me to research what I'm about to say in greater detail, but from my past research, college classes, etc. I know it to be true:
1942 - WW2 - FDR and his military leaders commited many mistakes costing 1,000's of American lives. It took time to learn how to fight in the hedgerows of Normandy and the jungles in the Pacific. We got beat many of these first big battles in the land and sea by the Japanese and Germans.
What would a majority-liberal media do to the President if that happened today? Let's not forget that America were solid isolationists until Pearl Harbor and the public was more gullible to this new media age. Thank God for propaganda!!
1952 - Korean War - What would the media say today if we got involved in a civil war to fight communism half the world away? What would they say if the military leader Patton angered the Chinese by his words and actions that instead of almost helping the South Koreans win that war that over a million Chinese stormed down and caused our armed forces into the greatest retreats in US history? Yes, we counter attacked and won a "tie" but I can hear the media now...
1963 - Some won't believe me, but a Democratic president got us started in Vietnam with advisors and some combat troops. I don't think the media were too upset at him for this. After he was killed, his VP Johnson, started the rapid troop build up as part of the Truman Doctrine against Communism.
2002 - Bin Laden goes on international TV and speaks about how weak Americans are and points to us leaving Somolia, Beruit, and other hot spots before we get the job done.
Now we're fighting in Iraq. It's gone amazingly well. 3 elections in a year by a population forced to live in a brutal dictatorship for years and years. Yes, our Humvees should of been better protected. Yes, we should of found WMD's. (But Bush was going on info. used by ALL foreign governments. Even Arab countries knew he had WMD's, had USED WMD's in the Iran war and against the Kurds.)
But after looking at history... we're doing pretty good in lessoning our mistakes. I don't hear too much about UN's mistakes in letting Saddam slide for years and years while acting so quickly in Yugoslovia...) I think Saddam had plenty of time to hide or move his WMD's.
Lastly, all this goes to show that while the UN, Democrats, and the media are ready to keep making the errors of the past in politicing a WAR, Prez. Bush knows that a leader presses on to do what is right to get our troops home as quick as possible, no matter the costs to his presidency.
