History's Dirty Little Secrets

Reminders to the anti-War protestors:

a. FDR led us into World War II, with Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor.

b. Germany never attacked us, but we joined allies against them under this Democratic President. From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost in WWII, an average of 112,500 per year.

c. Truman (a Democrat) finished WWII with the atom bomb and started another War in North Korea, even though they never attacked us. From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,334 per year.

d Vietnam never attacked us. but another Democrat, John F. Kennedy, engaged the U.S. in the Vietnam conflict in 1962.

e. President Johnson, a Democrat, turned Vietnam into a quagmire, which was handed over to Nixon. From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost ..
an average of 5,800 per year.

f. Bosnia never attacked us, but President Clinton, a Democrat, went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent, ironically to save the Muslims from the Serbs. Over 105,000 lives were lost. Later, Osama, who had attacked U.S. interests on multiple occasions was offered to Clinton, on a platter, three times by Sudan and did nothing.

g. In the years since terrorists attacked us , President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaeda, put nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran, and, North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a tyrant, who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.

In Iraq there were 39 combat related killings in January. In Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January.

The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking. But It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch Davidian compound. That was a 51-day operation..

We've been looking for evidence for chemical weapons in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records, which were in her living room.

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.

It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida!!!!

The biased media hopes we are too ignorant to realize the facts

But Wait . There's more!

Some people still don't understand why military personnel do what they do for a living. This exchange between Senators John Glenn and Senator Howard Metzenbaum is worth reading. Not only is it a pretty impressive impromptu speec! h, but it's also a good example of one man's explanation of why men and women in the armed services do what they do for a living.

This IS a typical, though sad, example of what some who have never served think of the military.

Senator Metzenbaum (speaking to Senator Glenn):
"How can you run for Senate
when you've never held a real job?"

Senator Glenn (D-Ohio):
"I served 23 years in the United States Marine Corps.
I served through two wars. I flew 149 missions.
My plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire on 12 different occasions. I was in the space program. It wasn't my checkbook, Howard; it was my life on the line. It was not a nine-to-five job, where I took time off to take the daily cash receipts to the bank."

"I ask you to go with me ... as I went the other day...
to a veteran's hospital and look at those men ..
with their mangled bodies . in the eye, and tell THEM they didn't hold a job!

You go with me to the Space Program at NASA and go, as I have gone, to the widows and Orphans of Ed White, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee...
and you look those kids in the eye and tell them that their DADS didn't hold a job.

You go with me on Memorial Day and you stand in Arlington National Cemetery, where I have more friends buried than I'd like to remember, and you watch those waving flags.

You stand there, and you think about this nation, and you tell ME that those people didn't have a job?

What about you?"

For those who don't remember ..
During W.W.II, Howard Metzenbaum was an attorney representing the Communist Party in the USA.
Now he's a Senator!
