Here is a great email I received yesterday.

I know everyone has a different opinion on the war and our

current President. But, this article makes a lot of sense,

take 2 minutes, read it and give it some thought.

When electing the next President, "the only decision

you have to make is who you want sitting in that seat in

the White House when - not if - WHEN we get hit again and

millions of American lives are put at risk!"

This is from: "You ain't gonna like losing."

Author unknown.

President Bush did make a bad mistake in the war on

terrorism. But the mistake was not his decision to go to

war in Iraq. Bush's mistake came in his belief that

this country is the same one his father fought for in WWII.

It is not.

Back then, they had just come out of a vicious depression.

The country was steeled by the hardship of that depression,

but they still believed fervently in this country. They knew

that the people had elected their leaders, so it was the

people's duty to back those leaders.

Therefore, when the war broke out the people came together,

rallied behind, and stuck with their leaders, whether they

had voted for them or not or whether the war was going

badly or not.

And war was just as distasteful and the anguish just as

great then as it is today. Often there were more casualties

in one day in WWII than we have had in the entire Iraq war.

But that did not matter. The people stuck with the

President because it was their patriotic duty. Americans

put aside their differences in WWII and worked together to

win that war.

Everyone from every strata of society, from young to old

pitched in. Small children pulled little wagons around to

gather scrap metal for the war effort. Grade school

students saved their pennies to buy stamps for war bonds to

help the effort.

Men who were too old or medically 4F lied about their age

or condition trying their best to join the military.

Women doubled their work to keep things going at home.

Harsh rationing of everything from gasoline to soap, to

butter was imposed, yet there was very little complaining.

You never heard prominent people on the radio belittling

the President. Interestingly enough in those days there

were no fat cat actors and entertainers who ran off to

visit and fawn over dictators of hostile countries and

complain to them about our President. Instead, they made

upbeat films and entertained our troops to help the

troops' morale. And a bunch even enlisted.

And imagine this: Teachers in schools actually started the

day off with a Pledge of Allegiance, and with prayers for

our country and our troops!

Back then, no newspaper would have dared point out certain

weak spots in our cities where bombs could be set off to

cause the maximum damage. No newspaper would have dared

complain about what we were doing to catch spies. A

! newspaper would have been laughed out of existence if it

had complained that German or Japanese soldiers were being

'tortured' by being forced to wear women's

underwear, or subjected to interrogation by a woman, or

being scared by a dog or did not have air conditioning.

There were a lot of things different back then. We were not

subjected to a constant bombardment of pornography,

perversion and promiscuity in movies or on radio. We did

not have legions of crack heads, dope pushers and armed

gangs roaming our streets.

No, President Bush did not make a mistake in his handling

of terrorism. He made the mistake of believing that we

still had the courage and fortitude of our fathers. He

;believed that this was still the country that our fathers

fought so dearly to preserve.

It is not the same country. It is now a cross between

Sodom and Gomorrah and the land of Oz. We did unite for a

short while after 9/11, but our attitude changed when we

found out that defending our country would require some


We are in great danger. The terrorists are fanatic

Muslims. They believe that it is okay, even their duty, to

kill anyone who will not convert to Islam. It has been

estimated that about one third or over three hundred

million Muslims are sympathetic to the terrorists cause...

Hitler and Tojo combined did not have nearly that many

potential recruits. So... We either win it - or lose it -

and you ain't gonna like losing.

America is not at war. The military is at war.

America is at the mall, or watching the movie stars.

(Remember Obama said in his book "Audacity of

Hope", 'I will stand with the Muslims should the

political winds shift in an ugly direction'.....what

better place for the Muslins to control our country, than

in the office of the President of USA . )
