1215 American troops re-enlisted in the military on July 4th. They know they’ll be sent back to Iraq. What do they know that Democrats and others who continue to oppose the war don’t? Will opponents of the war ever recognize that the arguments fueling the opposition to the war have always been and continue to be lies, and that those lies are mere political tools for professional politicians seeking to gain or hold power?
1215 Americans who have been there, who are there, and who will either stay there or return…those 1215 Americans know something that the most fervent opponents of the war do not. They know something that the mainstream media apparently isn’t reporting. They know that regardless of a six year old debate, the enemy-a death cult of faux Islamic Holy Warriors-is waging a terrorist war in Iraq, and that if America leaves the fight, there will have to be a 3rd invasion.
My personal thanks to all those who serve, served, and particularly to those who re-enlisted in Saddam’s old palace yesterday, on July 4th, 2008.
