Facts as I see them

Combat killings in Iraq are something we do not like, nor want, but in any war we have them.

The Democrats say Bush had no reason to start this war, so tell me why we went to war against Germany (they did not attack U.S.); 450,000 of our service people killed. North Korea did not attack U.S.; 55,000 lives lost. Vietnam did not attack the U.S.; 58,000 lives lost. Clinton’s war in Bosnia – they did not attack U.S.

Democrats were in office when we went to war against these countries.

Our president declared war on Iraq because Hussein was a terrorist – killing many, including 300,000 of his own people that he slaughtered (poison gas). Also, President Bush believed he helped Osama bin Laden with the terrorist attack on the U.S.

Our president and commander-in-chief is not only doing a great job – our military moral is high. I believe Democrats are losing their war, running down our president when their presidents caused so many of our soldiers to be killed and wounded.
