I'm angry. I'm angry at the 'antiwar' protesters who heaped abuse on our troops. And I'm angry at the people who couldn't be bothered to stand up for our troops yesterday.
Tens of thousands of anti-American leftists and their dupes marched on our nation's capital calling for America's defeat in the war on terror in Iraq.
Only about forty people could be bothered to turn out in support of America's victory in Iraq. Among those forty was a civilian POW held by the North Vietnamese communists and several Iraq war veterans--including wounded warriors who left the hospital to stand up for their brothers in arms on the home front.
Why did former POW Mike Benge and Iraq vet Joshua Sparling only find a few dozen people willing to stand with them? Why, as the anti-American left is heading toward repeating their victory in Vietnam, are so many people sitting on their asses and doing nothing to stop them?
Why, when Joshua Sparling was spat on, cursed at and threatened by 'peace marchers', were there so few people there to defend his honor?
Why was Jane Fonda allowed to desecrate the Navy Memorial and only face token opposition?
Why did Mike Benge see thousands more people showing up to cheer Jane Fonda than there were to denounce her?
Those who were there to support these patriots will be posting their observations and photos on this thread. I've said my piece.
You got it.
We don't have 6 months. Another showing or two like this last one, and Congress will jerk the funding, not just for the increase, but for the war itself.
They *had* adequate notice. Even though it was only measured in hours. Why? They were organized and ready. In many cases so were the "ordinary" militia of the area. (The Minute Men were something of a select militia, with extra training, and sworn to be ready "at a minute's notice") Unfortunately the region they defended is now known as Massachusetts, and has fallen into an sad condition. Something about a bunch of Irish brigands who sneaked in amongst the legal Irish immigrants.
Many have NO idea who the leadership is or what they stand for. Over time, we made a big dent in ANSWER's ranks because people who are truely for peace dropped out after they found out the truth about ANSWER.
That's why we need to use the tactics that the ProtestWarriors did when they were a new group, and steal the lefties media coverage right from under them.
