All true. except one small detail. The men who died in Iraq didn't just do it for their country. Granted that was part of it, but they also did it for the freedom of the Iraqi citizens as well as those they loved back home. Ask yourself one question. what is worth dying for? If your answer is only for yourself then you agree with our soldiers. You are why they are there, for YOU!Originally Posted by Agent Orange 216
And as a soldier that has been to the middle east I just want to say thanks to those who agree or just understand why we do what we do.
On a side note. I recently saw The President speak here in Idaho. While standing in line I saw something that made time stand still for a moment. While waiting in this horribly long line we made our way past dozens of protesters. One in particular had a sign that had a piture of a young man in uniform on it. With the picture were the words "Bring my son home". A friend of mine also in the service approached this woman and asked her one simple question. What would your son say if he knew you were here protesting the very thing he is laying his life down for? Her answer was silence, she was speachless. He went on to answer his own question. Your son would be happy to know you are using the rights that he is fighting to obtain for the people of Iraq. A few short moments later she embraced my friend and fell into tears. She then threw her sign away and went home with only two words to give to my friend. "Thank you"
