Land of the Free because of the Brave

Real men of genius.....

This time its for real.

Today we salute you United States Marines, Army, Air Force and Navy Enlisted. Ready to fight and give your life for the cause of freedom so others can make fun of you for doing so. Protecting those who choose not to protect themselves (aka. gun control freaks), winning the battle so free men can say

"This war is lost" (aka. Hairy Reid, Dem),

Getting stuck in Iraq because they don't have the education (John Kerry, Dem)

O and that stupid President Bush :̢۪%20Hard%20Work%20in%20Iraq%20Will%20Impact%20the%20World.aspx

The hard work U.S. troops are doing in Iraq is “laying the foundations of peace for generations to come,” President Bush told soldiers and family members today at Fort Irwin, Calif. “The work that you have volunteered to do will have a lasting impact on the world in which we live,” the president told the troops.

In the words of the great republican Abraham Lincoln:

"Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether."

As Lincoln also said so elequently as he refered to Matthew 12:25 (Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand'. ) A HOUSE DIVED AGAINST ITSELF CAN NOT STAND. Stand with our troops, support the fight they choose to win. They want to win, LET THEM WIN and then and only then allow them to depart for America the beautiful.

To those who not believe in this war let me make sure you at least know a little American history about wars that we have faught and won against Muslims.

For instance the First Barbary War:

In 1786, Thomas Jefferson, then the ambassador to France, and John Adams, then the ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the ambassador to Britain from Tripoli. The Americans asked Adja why his government was hostile to American ships, even though there had been no provocation. The ambassador's response was reported to the Continental Congress:
That it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.[3]

From 1784 to 1805 and then again in 1815 we faught the Muslim pirates and won both versus the infamous North African city-states of Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli, known collectively as the Barbary States.

Lets hope Lincoln is just as right today as he was in the 1800's: "I do not expect the Union to be dissolved -- I do not expect the house to fall -- but I do expect it will cease to be divided."
