"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Politicians without Intestinal Fortitude and Virtue

Senator Joseph Lieberman (D-Conn) visited troops in Iraq over Thanksgiving. He published a very positive and favorable report in yesterdays Wall Street Journal. xxx Here is his final paragraph which says alot about our Troops and demonstrates how the left and other politicians are harming the cause of freedom and lack the convictions of their past speeches and votes. xxx

I cannot say enough about the U.S. Army and Marines who are carrying most of the fight for us in Iraq. They are courageous, smart, effective, innovative, very honorable and very proud. After a Thanksgiving meal with a great group of Marines at Camp Fallujah in western Iraq, I asked their commander whether the morale of his troops had been hurt by the growing public dissent in America over the war in Iraq. His answer was insightful, instructive and inspirational: "I would guess that if the opposition and division at home go on a lot longer and get a lot deeper it might have some effect, but, Senator, my Marines are motivated by their devotion to each other and the cause, not by political debates."
