Sixty-two years ago today, the world learned that Europe was finally free and ushered in was the beginning of the end of World War II. Today, liberals will call it a 'day of shame' for the guilt they reserve over the greatness of the United States.
Now, if our liberal Democrats of today were in charge back in WWII with their attitudes, they would have said that the "war was lost" following the Battles off Guadal Canal, Midway. By then, we had way more than 3,000 dead, and it was still early in that war. It makes one wonder, if Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were in charge back then, would the US be speaking German or Japanese?
I've often asked myself and others, and I ask you today, "what is the consequence to war?" The liberal will tell you -- death. But that is simple and naive. War is a dirty business, and the United States has no reason to be the "agressor nation." We have no reason to be imperialist like we were back during the Spanish-American War, but that was the nature of the World back then. The US is obligated to protect what is ours and our children's future no matter where that may be in the World, and all this liberal crap of cutting and run, withdrawing our soldiers, and defunding our troops, hurts the chances for prosperity in the future. Appeasement gives al-Qaeda more hope, and makes them more aggressive.
The US has grown so much since WWII, that today the liberals of today may not know one soldier, and they definitely have a different attitude since military families are few and far between. During WWII we had over 10 million men under arms, today its closer to 1.5, so the liberals can gamble that their constiuencies have no contact or don't care for the miltary, and liberals can see the US military as the enemy rather than al-Qaeda.
Has the liberal of today ever suffered? Do they have a grasp of history -- they don't. Just look at Wheel of Fortune when the players are forced to answer simple social studies questions and they come up empty. That there defines the state of US public education. Accountability, not more money in education, is what is needed.
In today's history books, Lincoln gets a paragraph, we get nothing on the Spanish-American War or World War I. WWII gets a sentence or two. American aggression on Vietnam gets a paragraph, valiant Vietnam War protesters get a whole page, and the policies of President Clinton get a chapter minus stains on the blue dress. In mathematics, its even worse. No wonder the World's students run rings around us.
So what is the consequence to war? I say PEACE. It is something that liberals will not understand because they don't have the proper grasp of history.
I'll put it together in a cancer analogy. The cancer (al-Qaeda) invades or provokes the host (the US) with its weapons (cancer cells), and the host suffers. The host fights back with its own weapons (chemotherapy), but the host body is weakened, and the left side of the host's brain (the liberals) calls for the chemotherapy to be stopped and withdrawn, the host is suffering to much, the war is lost and the host dies. But for the host to win, it has to suffer, and the the right side of the host's brain (the Conservatives) hold on for dear life that for one day the cancer will be defeated via patience, determination, and lots of chemotherapy.
Don't ask me, even though I survived my cancer. Ask Lance Armstrong. It is possiible to win today's war.
The liberals have made us run from wars before -- Vietnam, Somalia. Millions died in the killing fields following our withdrawal from Southeast Asia. Somalia continues to be a hell-hole today, because less than twenty of our best and brightest died in battle. Blood which can be linked to the liberals hands because they walked away from the fight for democracy. And they call themselves Democrats.
War will always be a necessary evil to achieve peace in a world "governed by the use of force." Thank God the US has the best trained men and women, the best equipment possible to prosecute the war. The only thing lacking is the total will of the America people and its media. I certainly hope that the grandparents, and great-grandparents of today that helped support and win WWII are thoroughly ashamed of their grandchild and great-grandchild liberals that persecute our war effort today.
One thing that was not asked and liberals will never ask, "what are the consequences of appeasement and cutting and running from al-Qaeda." The liberal will say PEACE. If we leave the battlefield, stupid liberal Democrats argue that al-Qaeda will stay in place and not chase us back to the US. Folks, they are already here. Iran and North Korea will be emboldened to continue to develop their programs free of World interference.
In actuality, the consequences of appeasement and cutting and running from al-Qaeda, will usher in the era of nuclear terrorism, whether it be a radiological bomb (a poor-man's nuke) or a full suitcase nuke that will kill thousands instantly, and cause havoc with our economy perhaps for decades. That also will be blood on the liberal's hands.
God Bless the United States, and liberals be damned.
