Reader views: Encourage our troops, not the enemy
Monday, June 19, 2006

Polls, polls and more polls. The liberal politicians in our nation complain about our president's low poll numbers. Yet, their own poll numbers are more than 10 percent lower than the president's.

I feel that our president's poll numbers are great considering he has sustained a five-year "Bash Bush" campaign by the liberal press and Hollywood. I don't buy all the bull that American people want to know. I have more faith in the American people than that.

Have you noticed the type of complaints? When our president takes action, he either did it too early or too late or too much or not enough. They push for us to pull out of Iraq, and if we did, they would probably say, "See, I told you we couldn't win, and the war was a quagmire from the word go." Well, we are winning this war against the terrorists. The American people will settle for nothing less.

I often wonder how many of our brave soldiers would still be alive if these complainers wouldn't complain, which encourages the enemy.

We have the best, most well-trained force and the most modern equipment in the world, even after the military was cut by nine divisions during the Clinton administration.

It also seems like our liberal news will believe the word of the enemy before our own soldiers. We should not have any newspeople on our front lines. They should be no closer than our headquarters. They hurt our troops because the newspeople are so critical of our troops that a solider might hesitate and get himself killed and loose the battle. The 75 newspeople that died is a shame, and their deaths were unnecessary.

Also, to accuse our soldiers of deliberately shooting women and children is crossing the line. Because the terrorists are cowards that hide behind women and children, our soldiers sometimes have to make split-second decisions, and women and children do get killed. How would our soldiers know if these women and children have bombs taped around them or grenades under their armpits? Did you ever hear of the human wave attack of the Korean War?

These terrorists are the lowest of all cowards. Let our troops do their job, and keep politics out of it - politics caused us to lose the last two wars. Encourage our troops, not the enemy. I will never vote for a liberal because I'm a Christian and an American, and I am proud of it. Support our troops.
