Do you know what time it is?

...It is time to support our troops.
I am not sure how many people on here have been to the Middle East, but I grew up there, so let me share some thoughts with you:
The enemy of my enemy is my friend and my ally. The Iraqi regime (soon to be come history) hates America, Israel and the Jews. Islamic radicals also hate America, Israel and the Jews. As an added bonus, Islamic radicals hate Christians too. So you see, these thugs have a common enemy, and they will do anything to destroy it. It is naïve to think or say that there is no link between Al-Qaeda and Iraq. Maybe they don’t talk on the phone everyday, but they share a common goal: the destruction of Israel and America.

I am sure all of you still remember 9/11. I am sure you have not forgotten that over 3000 people died on that day. I am sure that you all know that the Islamic world cheered and celebrated 9/11, saying that America deserved it. They even went as far as saying that the Mossad was behind the attacks, or maybe the CIA.

The Iraqi regime has lied and deceived the world for more than 12 years. It has built and concealed WMD’s for many years. Do you know that they fired SCUD missiles on Kuwait today? Oh, in case you did not know, Iraq is not supposed to have SCUDs, as per UN resolution. I will not bore you with all the details, but you all know they lie and cheat and lie and cheat some more. Do you need another 9/11 to believe it? I hope not.

Nobody likes war, but sometimes war is necessary. This one is. Our president wanted to go to war in September. Powell and Congress urged him to give the U.N. a chance. The U.N. failed. We have no other choice. We can no longer ignore this threat. Our freedom and our way of life are at stake here. See all the anti-war demonstrations aired on CNN lately? That’s what this war is about. It is about freedom, your freedom, your freedom to express your opinion, your freedom to demonstrate, your right to be anti-war. This is what our men and women in uniform are fighting for today. When asked about the anti-war movement, President Bush had a simple and short answer: “Democracy is a beautiful thing.”

We should all gather around our president and pray for our troops. We have the greatest, most ethical and most humane military on the planet. They deserve our respect and our support.

God Bless Our Courageous President
God Bless the United States of America
