I know--we threw this "little war party" together on a "shoe-string budget".
It don't wash in my book. You had the blue print to follow in "Desert Storm", but this time you threw that book away because you wanted to force a ground war --totally, incompetent, lunacy. For the sake of ego you committed American lives on the ground far too early in the campaign. And the rewards you get from that action is this dismal excuse of another war of attrition --kinda sorta --"oh say it isn't so" --like Vietnam all over again!!! And with the size of our military industrial complex you have the nerve to short change my comrades with the basic essentials for protection!
With all due respect Sir, Mr. President, this whole fiasco truly stinks to high heaven. It hurts my heart --NO, Mr. President --It hurts me to my very soul that 24/7 I have to see and read about my fellow comrades-in-arms being physically and mentally subjected to the insanity of this present war in Iraq --which should have been ended the first time we were over there --but, political expediency/chicanery was the name of the game then --and we had to stop before getting the job done.
Why were they sacrificed?
Whose altar were they sacrificed on?
I will tell you now that that was our saddest hour, a shameful hour. They were patriots --ALL --and they were slaughtered and sacrificed on an altar that is whispered of, the one that exists behind closed doors in secret sessions, run by the people that President Eisenhower warned us about. The dank, musty, smoke-filled rooms where the heads of the military industrial complex meets to barter and bargain away human lives like some commodity at an auction.
I respectfully submit to you Mr. President, that it's high time we approach this industrialist war with a new agenda, before we get our collective heads and asses handed to us on a platter. We are in this thing now so we either put up, or shut up. If you really want to make a "true" statement to the world. Get this war in gear, finish it, finish it --In The Name Of The Creator --FINISH IT NOW!!!
Either you "Stand Up" or, "Stand Down" --there is no in-between. And bring my Brothers/Sisters Comrades-In-Arms the hell back home. Because the gears of this Industrialist War Machine has been lubricated with the blood of my comrades long enough --SIR!!!
