Yes they of course knew something was going to happen, they probably even had a clue of how, and definately where, but probably not a specific
I can see them now as they woke up to the same news as the rest of us, "Damn if only we could have just dragged them off in the dead of night and
made them disappear, none of this would have happend today."
But it's better to suffer physical blows then lose our identity and ideals. A true American wouldn't hesitate to protect those ideals and their
identity, and we'd be even MORE empowered to solve the problem abroad, without many protestors.
The protestors say they are every bit as patriotic as the rest of us, no they are not, this is not an internal matter it concerns the whole world, and
when such a thing concerns the world, your only duty is to serve the government, not defy it and change its decree.
Bombing Iraq doesn't harm our freedoms, it only liberates the people there...we have a Government that is to do whatever is necissary to protect us,
how can it do that when it does all it can do to protect us, and then we slap its wrists saying "bad boy!"???
It is not you or I who makes foriegn policy, we have never sought trouble, the trouble came to us, there is no shame in reacting, yet all these
anti-war protestors point the blame at us!
As Kennedy said, and he'd be stoned today for saying it I'll bet ya, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your
When I was younger I thought, "How facist is that!" But now I've grown up and I see the dividing line between our duty to freedom, and our duty to
servatude. We are all free, so long as we serve when we need to, that means supporting military actions as well. But that doesn't mean supporting
the loss of civil liberties, I think anti-war people confuse the two, and think that the Governments actions abroad, reflect its duties to us,
and like-wise they think a citizens demands of its government, over-shadows their duties to the nation.
Our balance IS ruined, but not by the government, but by the protestors, who are against our fighting to preserve OUR way of life.
