Amer­i­can spirit

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

When I heard Sen. Harry Reid por­tray Amer­i­cans as losers in Iraq, I re­called the movie “Pat­ton,” which opened with a speech by Pat­ton to the troops go­ing into World War II, in which he said:

“All this stuff you heard about Amer­ica not want­ing to fight is a lot of horse dung. Amer­i­cans tra­di­tion­ally love to fight. Amer­i­cans love a win­ner and will not tol­er­ate a loser. Amer­i­cans play to win all the time.”

Let us hope the Amer­i­can spirit still pre­vails and that our love of win­ning has not been to­tally de­stroyed by our ex­pe­ri­ences in Viet­nam. Mary M. Hill Cham­bers­burg, Penn­syl­va­nia
