America about freedom

Iraq is a direct threat to many countries, including America.

We must not let him get away with what he deems as the inevitable destruction of American freedom!

He is trying to take our freedom away from us, and he will succeed if we don’t act. We must remember what America is all about, and that is freedom.

The people who say “We don’t want war” or “No war on Iraq” are the ones who would sit back and watch Saddam take our freedom away. Millions of American soldiers have died in the name of freedom. We must remember that freedom is not something that is given to us, it must be earned.

An example is inscribed on the Korean Memorial in Washington, D.C.: “Freedom Is Not Free.” There can really be no true gain without sacrifice. Sacrifice is the war, and the gain is our freedom and safety.

I’m not saying that war is good, but in some cases it is necessary for the good of our country and other countries in order to be free and safe. Freedom is by far the most precious thing of all. Doesn’t that mean anything to anyone anymore?
