Thanks for posting this. I came to get an update on the debate I missed. Who cares about that debate in which half of them promised to cut and run ASAP.
This was what I needed to see.
Something has got to happen. Something that proves this has not been for naught. Something that defines and displays Victory in no uncertain terms. Our men and women deserve it.

I needed to see this too.

These beautiful faces are too far removed from us. We don't see them enough. We sit in our comfortable living rooms, kick back in our comfortable recliners, sleep in our comfortable beds and give little thought to what our service men and women are having to endure and what they are giving up for us.

I am proud of them. They have my support.

These men and women are the ones that protect our freedoms. They are our frontline of defense and they are being used as a politcal football in the worst way. If the democrats would invest the time they are spending attacking the administrtion and our men and women on the frontline we could have won this thing long ago but for every attack the democrats make on the policies of the admin it means renewed and continual direct and indirect support for the enemies we wish to defeat.

Every time John Murtha, Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid gets before a microphone to announce the war is lost it is like placing another bomb in an Iraqi market place or underneath a Humvee full of these heroes.

There are no halfway actions in war, you must decide that you are going to be more brutal, more destructive and more decisive than your enemy or you might as well stay home.

I see victory in Iraq as when the Iraqis are able to maintain control of their borders from mass invasion, and when the are able to decide the direction of their country by political means no matter how contentious those means may be. I think providing them with enough security until those things can occur regularly will be a victory. As I have stated before many times we cannot be run off the field of battle by a handful of people using truck and car bombs. Weakening, demoralizing and eliminating al qaeda types should be done as much as possible even though we all know they can't be totally eliminated.

The democrats though have bought and now bank on defeat at any and all costs to further their own cynical political fortunes.

Benny had it all under his hat alright but he wasn't the one dimensional idealogue that the far right is today. If you are so concerned about being a paleoconsevative try these guys you'll fit right in. http://www.jbs.org/

Get a blog, no more anon commenting. Real conservatives are responsible people.

How much things would be different, if we had a united front...if only Democrats would stop seeing George Bush as the enemy, and focus on the ones who are trying to destroy us.

How can anyone not see, that our enemy sees our in-fighting, and makes decisions, based upon perceived weakness, on our part. What message does this send to our allies, as well? Democrats were whining before about how our credibility was damaged, how we need to work with our allies...and just how does this help our credibility should we suffer a defeat in Iraq? How does this help us build trust and loyalty amongst Middle Eastern allies, if they see that America is a paper tiger, and does not have the intestinal fortitude to sustain losses, and see things through? Why should innocent Iraqis risk the wrath of al Qaeda, by openly aligning with American and Coalition forces who are attempting to help them rebuild for a better future, if we do not show them that we will not abandon them? Why should they gamble on American resolve when we are showing them no such resolve?

Harry Reid and his ilk do more damage than they will ever be made to atone for in this life. I honestly see them as having blood on their hands.

I don't know Word. It's as if they have pulled a pillow case over their heads and then buried their heads in the sand. I don't think we'll ever be able to explain their upside down way of thinking.

We had a "welcome back" celebration for a large number of Marines in Grand Rapids today. It was the kind of live news coverage that our troops deserve. I wish the whole country could have seen it.
I must learn how you get the audio on your posts.
I quoted you in Part IV of "Why Bloggers Blog" Sunday night. Hope that's okay. If you'd rather I delete that part, just let me know.

I've got to learn how to do these audio clips. You may enjoy a detail I added to a paraphrase of the Good Samaritan tonight.

I read the telegraph article Tom. I'll comment on it later in the week.

Put a folder together with your favorite sounds in .wav.mp3 or midi and I'll help you with the sound clips.
