To date less American Soldiers have been killed in Iraq than the number of Americans killed during 9/11. More Americans are killed on the highways in
this country every year than were killed in Vietnam. More Americans are murdered by fellow Americans every year in this country than have died in
Iraq. More Firemen and Police Officers die in the line of duty every year than the number that have died in Iraq. The chances of you being murdered
or dying in a car crash on the way home from work today are 100 times greater than your chances of dying in combat. Bush lied? Name one politician in
this country that hasn't lied or stretched the truth to get what they want. If you don't want to place your life in jeopardy then you don't take
hazardous jobs. It comes with the territory. This is the very reason I don't jump out of planes or climb rock cliffs. Soldiers have only one job, one
reason to even exist and that is to fight our countries battles. Thats it, period. When a person dies it is always very sad, especially to the family.
When you sign the dotted line, take the oath and put on that uniform, it is understood that the day my come when you will be called upon to make the
final sacrifice. This soldiers mother is upset, just as I would be if it were my son. But the young man made a mature decision to join an all
volunteer military. The President of the United States has a constistutional duty to protect America in everyway possible. He had every right, no he
had an obligation to send troops in response to any conceived threat after 9/11. If he had not you and everyone else here would be clammering for his
head, just as you do now saying it is an illegal war, that Bush is a liar and he stole the election. This kind of rhetoric gives aide to the enemy. I
for one voted for Bush, not once but twice and I would vote for him again if he could run. I don't want to wait for some wacked out Muslem radical
wearing a suicide belt to set next to me at Bojangles and blow me and my chicken dinner all to hell before somebody grows balls in this country. There
were fewer Americans killed at Pearl Harbor than died on 9/11, and Pearl Harbor lead us into WW2. We have to fight them, whether you want to or not.
They want leave us in peace and haven't since 1979. So you'll just have to get over it! Don't worry though there are plenty of Americans willing to
do your fighting for you so don't give it another thought.
