THE LIES OF DEMOCRATS & ANTI-WAR PROTESTERS
There is a foolish side to the many people who are against the "war" in Iraq. To say you support our troops and then ridicule their Commander-n-Chief is hypocrisy. Our troops are VOLUNTEERS & have great respect for President Bush. Those who are immature employ ridicule & lies as tactics to discredit him, but that does not help the morale of our troops, it only angers them.
About four thousand unborn Americans are put to death EVERY DAY because the Democratic Party refuses to support a Human Life Amendment to the US Constitution. But do the anti-war critics ridicule them? Do they know the difference between a declared war that was approved by Congress and the deliberate killing of the unborn who are sentenced to death without a trial?
Democrats who claim to support our troops should go on one of our military bases and criticize our President. However, this they won't do because they know they would be booed off that base.
As a veteran I believe President Bush to be a good man who (following intelligence information believed by the Clinton administration & other Democrats) chose to disarm an enemy whom he believed had weapons of mass destruction that could be used against us. But a President alone does not have the authority to declare war - it must be approved by Congress, and therefore it has the greater responsibility.
We won the Iraq war. "Insurgents" are not fighting against us - terrorists are. Insurgents donít kill their own people, terrorists do. The conflict in Afghanistan is not considered a "war," yet our troops employ the same military tactics in that country.
Every American citizen has the right to disagree with our President, but it should be done in a dignified & fair manner.

The easy answer would be eat anoter Brat, drink another brew but... The current Pope and the previous Pope denounced the "war" in Iraq.
We do have Catholics protesting the war but they are incarcerated soon after.
"Volunteers" please. The American people the legislature included were given erroneous, bogus and incomplete information prior to our invasion of Iraq.
One thing you are correct about is abortion-which neither parties have done anything real to discontinue that as a law of the land.

However, the Republican President, George Bush, has put good men on the Supreme Court. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito are good men, and it is thought that they will rule favorably along with justices, Kennedy, Scalia, and Thomas in rolling back abortion on demand. The Republican Party has far more members who are pro-life than does the Democrat Party, which is full of pro-abortion pols, many of whom are "Catholics."
The Democrat Party does not allow pro-life people to even address their conventions. Remember Pennsylvania Governor Bob Casey (now deceased) who was pro-life and was not allowed to address the Democrat Convention? It is virtually impossible for a pro-life person to get the Democrat Party's endorsement for President.
So, whatever Bush's faults, he at least has vetoed embryonic stem cell research and has put good men on the Supreme Court.

We do have a completely volunteer military.
Show me one forced conscript? Show me one drafted conscript?
As a veteran let me tell you that the soldiers are doing a job. A GOOD job in Iraq. This is contrary to the media and the politicians in the USA.
Go here and read some words from a man actually in the battles and on the ground in Iraq:
http://michaelyon-online.com/ Read some of Michael Yons dispatches. You will hear the good the bad and the ugly. There is a LOT of good going on. The enemy is NOT Iraqi's unless they are in Al Quaeda.
The "civil war" is not as large as some think - it is localized cities not huge areas as our civil war was. The truth is out there but it is not being told to the American public.
