OF COURSE WE DIDN'T KNOW! WHY DIDN'T WE KNOW?
YOUR NEWS MEDIA REFUSES TO TELL THIS!
Instead of reflecting our love for our country, we get photos of flag burnings, incidents
at Abu Ghraib and people throwing things at the presidential motorcades.
Tragically, the lack of accentuating the positive in Iraq serves three major purposes
of the liberal news media:
1. It is intended to undermine the world's perception of the United States, thus minimizing consequent support;
2. It is intended to discourage American citizens and erode their support for the war.
3. It is intended to help the Democratic Party gain more power in the next elections.
All the above facts about Iraq are verifiable on the Department of Defense website:
Pass it on! Give this wide distribution, PLEASE.
~ GOD BLESS AMERICA! PRAY FOR AMERICAN TROOPS.
