Support Our Men and Women of the Armed Forces
Listening to the radio today, the republicans were blasting the democrat's for wanting troop withdrawal and the democrat's are calling the republicans war mongers.
With all the arguing aside, we must support the troops no matter what. They are not just pins on a board to be removed when one dies. These are our friends, neighbors and loved ones over there who eat breath and have dreams just like the rest of us. These troops deserve our full respect for putting it all on the line every single damned day this war drags on.
What ever your view is of this war, those brave men and women are fighting and dying to give each and every one of us the right to bicker and argue and disagree. The freedom to speak that which we think is correct. We all can sleep at night in our warm beds, go to a movie to dinner or whatever it is we all do. If it were not for these brave souls doing their duty 25 hours a day 8 days a week; just how much freedom would we all still have anyway.
What ever your take is on the whole situation, the fact of the deal is whichever party you support, we should all thank the Armed Forces for what they are doing. Like it or not, if not for them all, we would not be enjoying the freedom we have over here.
I'm proud to be an American. Just because I want a peaceful solution to the whole ordeal does not make me any less of an American.
Just remember this to my friend. Those soldiers fighting over there, a lot are Republicans and Democrat's working side by side and watching each others backs. They do not have the luxury to say which party is right or which one is wrong. They are just trying to stay alive and make it home.
