My country tis of thee, sweet land of ?

FRIDAY 5-30-08…Here’s an eye-opening Tidbit for ya’. President Bush did make a bad mistake in the war on terrorism….but the mistake was in his belief that this country is the same one his father fought for in World War Two. But, it is NOT.

Back then, we 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 support those leaders. So, when the war broke out, the people came together, rallied behind and stuck with their leaders whether they had voted for ‘em or not…whether the war was going good or bad.

There were more casualties in one day in WWII than we’ve had in the entire Iraq war, but the people stuck with the President because it was their patriotic duty. Americans put aside their differences and worked together to win that war.

No, President Bush didn’t 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.

But he was wrong! It’s not the same country. Its now a cross between Sodom and Gomorra 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 sacrifices.

Today, the United States is not at war, nor is it united. Our military is at war. America is at the mall.

  1. If there is a failure associated with the war it is the failure of the people (all around the world, really) to take a firm stand against terrorists and the tyranny that the terrorist movement is determined to inflict on all lovers of freedom and equality. Those who refused to back the president, AND OUR TROOPS, can be credited with failure for their lack of determination and will…who knows where we might be had there been a united front over the past five years.

    America, a beacon of freedom in times past, might now choose to lead the parade toward our own demise. This is sad, unfortunate and very serious.

    The rhetoric is that Bush failed…but it is the progressives of the world that failed (as they always do) to share the burden of standing up to murderous bullies. They prefer to coddle, pamper and apologize to them. Now they call for change but the only change they have in mind is a return to the failed policies that brought embassey bombings, the USS Cole, and 911. The difference is that the enemy has had time to think of new and more deadly ways to inflict mysery on us. Without a strong will to defend ourselves spending a day at the mall might prove deadly. Gives a whole new meaning to shop til you drop!
