I'm not sure about conservatives, but I do know that most people who want peace are liberals. As such there will be a preponderance of liberal
anti-war people on this message board.
As far as signing up for the military to protect our freedoms, there first has to be a valid war in which to go fight for these freedoms. Iraq posed
no threat to the United States yet was attacked anyway. How is that protecting the freedoms of the United States of America?
So many flaws, but I'll keep it brief.
Your assumption that liberals want peace more is incorrect. They are only the ones who appear to want peace at any cost. We were warned a long time
ago that those who are willing to sacrifice security for peace will have neither - and deserve neither.
Your assertion that Iraq was no threat to us can only be made by ignoring several facts that clearly prove that wrong. I shall not go through them
again as you will only ignore them again.
There is a clear and present danger to this nation, in case you didn't notice, therefore there is good reason to enlist and defend this nation. To
deny that is to ignore may incidents in the past few years, the most eye-catching was 9-11-01.
Now, as to the originator of this thread I would like to say something, and I mean this as hearsh as it sounds. Who in the Hell are you to call the
fine and brave servicemen we have on duty now, and the ones that are enlisting as we speak, cowards? They are a part of this nation like everyone
else. What, are you saying there weren't dope-smokers, video addicts and selfish people in your graduating class? There certainly was in my class
of '82, I assure you. When I joined the Army months before graduation and was waiting for the three short days after graduation to go to basic
training, many of my classmates made it clear they weren't going to go and join no "damned Army"; they were going to go to law school or med school
and rake in the big bucks. Well, they went there way and I went mine. I'm not "raking in the big bucks", but I hold my head up as high as theirs,
and I believe I feel more pride in what they do than even they do. I was one of the ones that insured they are able to still do what they wanted to
Don't get caught up in this ultra-liberal message board. Being libs, they see us as the bad guy, no matter how dire the situation, they will always
ignore the facts and cling to their cowardly and unfounded notions. You sound older than most here, you should already know that they haven't
changed down through the years, no matter how many times they have been proven wrong.
Don't give up hope for the nation. There are plenty of brave and morally strong young people who will answer the call of the nation in need. Be
proud of them, think positively and carry yourself positively. Leave the negative crap for the liberals. The love it, so let them have it.
