Cutting and running not the solution
I am an 82-year-old widow of a World War II pilot and, to me, some congressional words and actions are inexplicable. Who could vote for a war and, when the going gets tough, slander the commander in chief, denigrate the military, and give aid and comfort to the enemy? Demo-cut-and-run-rats, for the second time around. The Vietnam “bug out” was shameful and awful for our country and military, but the ensuing bloodbath in South Vietnam, the genocide in Cambodia and the civil war in Laos were monstrous.
If America abandons Iraq, what will happen to the people? Will the Islamofascists cease their global threats, riots, kidnappings and murders? Will they take back their declarations of war and express regret for 9/11? Will they stop trying to annihilate Israel? Will they quit taking children to those awful madrassas, where their innocent brains are twisted with hatreds and death-love by evil fanatics? Or will there be huge celebrations and immense growth of jihadists?
What about our bravest and finest, the military men and women who have fought so hard and given so much, but still have to cope with the “I loathe the military” crowd? The Demo-cut-and-run-rats, their sycophant media and the Hollywood Left have been most eloquent. The enemy thinks so too, and their rhetoric is interchangeable. President Bush endures it all with grace, forbearance andhonor—qualitieshisenemiesdonothave. Mary M. Gottner Austin, Texas
