I am in the process of reading an article written by Senator Joe Lieberman...well let me say I'm impressed beyond words and sit here close to tears out of joy and pride and well honestly being assured that my feelings and beliefs have been proven to be correct from all people a Democrat who actually see's things IMHO in the RIGHT LIGHT!
Here's the article: http://www.opinionjournal.com/editorial/feature.html?id=110007611
Here are a few quotes that really struck me and that I think MORE American's NEED to HEAR:
"Here is an ironic finding I brought back from Iraq. While U.S. public opinion polls show serious declines in support for the war and increasing pessimism about how it will end, polls conducted by Iraqis for Iraqi universities show increasing optimism. Two-thirds say they are better off than they were under Saddam, and a resounding 82% are confident their lives in Iraq will be better a year from now than they are today. What a colossal mistake it would be for America's bipartisan political leadership to choose this moment in history to lose its will and, in the famous phrase, to seize defeat from the jaws of the coming victory. "
"I cannot say enough about the U.S. Army and Marines who are carrying most of the fight for us in Iraq. They are courageous, smart, effective, innovative, very honorable and very proud. After a Thanksgiving meal with a great group of Marines at Camp Fallujah in western Iraq, I asked their commander whether the morale of his troops had been hurt by the growing public dissent in America over the war in Iraq. His answer was insightful, instructive and inspirational: "I would guess that if the opposition and division at home go on a lot longer and get a lot deeper it might have some effect, but, Senator, my Marines are motivated by their devotion to each other and the cause, not by political debates."
The rest of the article is worth the read...so many American's are blinded by what the media is putting out there vs reading and finding out what is REALLY happening.
What Chad is doing over there is making a difference to the Iraqi people who want freedom's they have never had before. I'm so thankful to him and the rest of our military who's doing their JOB...this iswhat the military is for, somehow people have forgotten that.
