Ordinarily I don't give much credibility to the items that cruise the Internet and arrive in my Email box. However, I received this one today and have verified each and every one of the facts through independent research over the past few weeks so I think I'll post it verbatim:
"Every American should know the following:
There were 39 combat related killings
in Iraq during the month of January.....
In the fair city of Detroit there were
35 murders in the month of January.
That's just one American city,
about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq.
When some claim President Bush shouldn't
have started this war, consider the following ...
led us into World War II.
Germany never attacked us: Japan did.
From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost,
an average of 112,500 per year.
finished that war and started one in Korea,
North Korea never attacked us.
From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost,
an average of 18,334 per year.
John F. Kennedy...
started the Vietnam conflict in 1962.
Vietnam never attacked us.
turned Vietnam into a quagmire.
From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost,
an average of 5,800 per year.
went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent,
Bosnia never attacked us. (we are STILL there)
He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter
three times and did nothing.
Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.
In the two years since terrorists attacked us
President Bush has ...
liberated two countries,
crushed the Taliban,
put nuclear inspectors in Libya,
Iran and North Korea without firing a shot,
and captured a terrorist who slaughtered
300,000 of his own people.
The Democrats (and media) are complaining
about how long the war is taking, but...
It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the
Branch Davidian compound.
That was a 51 day operation (against American men, women and children).
We've been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for less
time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records.
It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division
and the Marines to destroy the Medina
Republican Guard than it took Ted Kennedy to
call the police after his Oldsmobile
sank at Chappaquiddick.
It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida!!!!
Our Commander-In-Chief is doing the best job he knows how!
The Military is doing a superb job, given the circumstances!"
Those are the facts. Check them out.
