Are Senator John Kerry and DNC Chairman Howard Dean aiding and abetting our country's enemies?
We are currently in a global war on terror. This war has been taken to the places where the extreme elements of Islamic fundamentalism manifest themselves the most. Afghanistan and Iraq. The US troops stationed in these areas need our support and encouragement because they are risking their lives for us and the Afghan and Iraqi people. What they don't need is politicians back home saying things like "the war cannot be won" and that they (our troops) are "terrorizing women and children".
I would like to address these two distinguished gentlemen as follows:
Senator Kerry, for your information, dangerous terrorist infiltrators that hide in residential areas still need to be pursued and captured. This means that searches sometimes have to be made in these residences for possible hiding places. Occasionally this has resulted in the annoyance of the local populace. Your comments that they are terrorizing women and children is an over-exaggeration just to gain some cheap political points at the expense of our troops. This is just another one of your comments that negatively impact on our country.
Doctor Dean, your comment about "the war not being able to be won" can only be described as "classic defeatism" which will result in lowering the morale of our troops. It also sends a message to our enemies. The message? Stay the course, the will of the American public to fight terror is on the wane.
The USA needs every friend it can get these days but with friends like these, who needs enemies?
