Selfless American Soldiers murdered
There have been, and always will be, clear differences between
individuals who advocate war, if necessary, and individuals who under
no circumstances will support a war. Be that as it may, there are
occasions when a powerful country should assert its responsibility,
not only to its citizens but to the entire free world.
I am a new member of this site; I am so because I am from Queens, NY,
but Irish by heritage, my parents are from county Donegal (let's go
Donegal vs. Armagh!!!!). I am also admittedly against most of the
ideologies you all stand for. I just thought a different point of
view would not harm the democratic scene you promote.
There are American soldiers, as young as 18, dying on an almost daily
basis in Iraq. These soldiers are suffering through tremendous heat
and the daily threat of ambushes and gunfire. I have been unable to
do so, because I am in New York City and not on the scene, but I
would ask you all to place yourselves in the undesired shoes of an
American or English soldier in Iraq. First of all, they totally know
that they could be killed at any second by terrorists. That these
terrorists are acting on the orders of Hussein or Bin Laden is
irrelevant. Their lives are in danger as a result of the reason we
went to war to begin with; hmmm.... that means that we had a
justified war!! Second of all, I feel that they do realize that their
victory and presence in the Middle East will lend the stability and
credence that peace loving people in that region deem necessary. The
U.S. has liberated an entire country; and in the process did prevent
illegal arms from leaving Iraq and entering a region of the world
where those weapons would wreak havoc (i.g. U.S and Israel).
I ask all people (especially people who declare themselves anti-war);
pray for the American and British soldiers in Iraq, who no longer
wish to fight, but are baited into such confrontations; If you were
truly ant-war, you would speak out against Iraqi, Palestinian, etc.
violence. You seem not to care when Americans or Brits die (or for
that matter Aussies, Spaids, etc). Your Iraqi death numbers are
grossly overestimated, it isn't even funny. That is true with the
war, and with the sanctions, which you unbelievably blame on the
U.S.!! Out of control incorrect!!!
I lost several people in the WTC. This war, and the wars to come,
will make America safer.
That is that.
