Operation Iraqi Freedom: Thank You!
Ten years later, it has become politically incorrect in America now to voice any kind of support or approval of the efforts our service men and women put forth in the war in Iraq. Why is that? I don't get it. We acted on very viable intelligence - believed not only by President Bush, but by many on the left as well (like Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry) AND Prime Minister Tony Blair - that Hussein was harboring weapons of mass destruction. Whether or not any were ever found seems to be the ONLY focus anyone has. Have we forgotten what an EVIL, EVIL man Saddam Hussein was??! He slaughtered people by the hundreds of thousands. HUNDREDS. OF. THOUSANDS. The list of human rights violations committed by Hussein's regime is longer than the alphabet, and those are just the ones we know about. Mass graves. Torture chambers. Gas attacks. Iraq's soccer team. His atrocities knew no bounds. WMDs or not, do people not get that this minion of Satan would still be ruling the country, had we not intervened?
So here, today, on the 10th anniversary of the day we invaded Iraq, I celebrate. And as I celebrate, I say THANK YOU, President Bush, for making the move. THANK YOU, men and women of our armed services who relieved a nation of its ruthless dictator. THANK YOU, countries who joined our coalition. THANK YOU, you thousands who selflessly gave life and limb. THANK YOU. Just... THANK YOU.
