We do not want another Sept. 11

Once again, our news is full of campaigning, over the television as well as the press. As always, we have mud-slinging, and Monday-morning quarter backs.

The president has a job few would ever want. We should be remembering 9-11, and being caught unaware. Also, we just passed Pearl Harbor anniversary, another surprise attack. President Bush tried to save another happening, of being not prepared, by going to war with Iraq.

Why is it so surprising, when they finally were allowed to go in to search for the massive weapons, there were none? Good heavens, they are no dummies. They promptly got them hid. Now, because of not finding these weapons to destroy anything they want, the president is accused of using war as a political move.

I would hate to think of a non-military man making these decisions now, without a clue of what it’s all about over there.

We do not want another 9-11, nor another Pearl Harbor. I am remembering. We must remember.
