A message from one of the troops - February 9, 2007, 01:37 AM

Got this email from one of the guys figured I would share it.

> There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq in January. In the fair city
of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January. That's just one
American city, about as deadly as the entire war-torn country of Iraq.
> When some claim that President Bush shouldn't have started this war, state
the following:
> a) FDR led us into World War II.
> b) Germany never attacked us; Japan did.
> c) From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost. An average of 112,500 per
> d) Truman finished that war and started one in Korea. North Korea never
attacked us.
> e) From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost. An average of 18,334 per year.
> f) John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never
attacked us.
> g) Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire.
> h) From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost. An average of 5,800 per year.
> i) Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent. Bosnia
never attacked us.
> j) Sudan offered Clinton the head of Osama Bin Laden's (three times) He
did nothing. He was too busy playing with Monica Lewinsky. Osama has
attacked us on multiple occasions.
> k) Since September 11, 2001, President Bush has liberated two countries,
crushed the Taliban, and crippled al-Qaeda. Also, put nuclear inspectors in
Libya, Iran, and, North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a
terrorists who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.
> The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking. But
> It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch
Dravidian compound. That was a 51-day operation.
> We've been looking for evidence for chemical weapons in Iraq for less time
than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records.
> It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to

> It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida!
> Our Commander-In-Chief is doing a GREAT JOB! The Military morale is high!
> The biased media hopes we are too ignorant to realize the facts, but Wait.
> There's more!

> Some people still don't understand why military personnel do what they do
for a living. This exchange between Senators John Glenn and Senator Howard
Metzenbaum is worth reading. Not only is it a pretty impressive
> impromptu speech, but it's also a good example of! One man's explanation
of why men and women in the armed services do what they do for a living.
> This IS a typical, though sad, example of what some who have never served
think of the military.
> Senator Metzenbaum (speaking to Senator Glenn):
> "How can you run for Senate when you've never held a real job?"
> Senator Glenn (D-Ohio):
> 1. I served 23 years in the United States Marine Corps.
> 2. I served through two wars.
> 3. I flew 149 missions.
> 4. My plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire on 12 different occasions.
> 5. I was in the space program.
> 6. It wasn't my checkbook, Howard; it was my life on the line. It was
...not a nine-to-five job, where I took time off to take the daily cash
...receipts to the bank."
> "I ask you to go with! Me, as I went the other day, to a veteran's
hospital and look those men with their mangled bodies in the eye, and tell
THEM they didn't hold a job!
> Go with me to the Space Program at NASA and go, as I have gone, to the
widows and Orphans of Ed White, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee and look those
kids in the eye and tell them that their DADS didn't hold a job.
> You go with me on Memorial Day and you stand in Arlington National
Cemetery, where I have more friends buried than I'd like to remember, and
you watch those waving flags.
> You stand there, and think about this nation, and you, yes you, tell ME
that those people didn't have a job?
> What about you?"
> For those who don't remember. During W.W.II, Howard Metzenbaum was an
attorney representing the Communist Party in the USA.

"How can you run for Senate when you've never held a real job?"

Yeah,you need job experience to work a couple days a year and all your decisions are made by what special interest group buys you the nicest dinner.But excellent read.


Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven
