A Statue Fell. . . And a host of leftist lies with it.

Like millions of my fellow Americans, I rejoiced as I watched United States Marines come to the aid of Iraqis trying to pull down a huge statue of Saddam Hussein. The Marines made short work of the statue to the delight of scores of Iraqis who vented their years of stored up anger at the Saddam dictatorship by beating on the fallen idol.
It was an historic moment reminiscent of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Decades of tyranny had ended, and along with it the lies and distortions of anti-Bush liberals, Democrats who predicted that all kinds of disasters would befall America if we went to war with Saddam Husseins Iraq.
That statue was Iraqs Berlin Wall. And the naysayers, the Rangels and the Kerrys and the Conyers and the Pelosis and the Daschles and all of the American Baghdad Bobs who just a week ago were whining that were wrong that the president was wrong and there was going to be body bag after body bag coming home that this is an unjust and illegal war, were the ones who have been proved wrong.
Instead, what we are seeing today, just a week later, is the beginning of freedom for the first time since Saddams iron fist was clamped down on his people years ago.
Today Iraqis are jubilant - theyre excited because for the first time in their lives theyre able to do something they want to do without having to fear that somebody will shoot them, or torture them or rape their wives and mothers and kill their children.
Every day thats gone by, President Bush and Tony Blair look far wiser and brilliant than those who have been speaking out against. Think about it, the war started a mere 21 days ago today were in Baghdad, the Saddam regime has been destroyed and the people of Iraq are free.
As Baghdad Bob has been spewing forth his fantasyland disinformation to the Iraqis and the Arab world, so have the Democrats who for so long said the same things and spread the same types of lies and propaganda about the Republicans and about Ronald Reagan and President Bush and his father before him. As the statue of Saddam come crashing down hopefully America will look at Washington and understand the statue of corrupt liberalism has begun to fall too.
Our people should understand that these scoundrels have been telling lie after lie after lie for so long, whether it be about communism, or Nicaragua or Fidel Castro or Social Security.
People are beginning to hear the truth thanks to talk radio and Fox Broadcasting and internet news services such as NewsMax.com and the Drudge Report and are telling their friends and neighbors, that there is truth out there to be had, and they no longer need listen to liberalisms lies being trumpeted by the Democrats and their biased liberal media allies.
We have watched one of the most amazing and successful military campaigns in all history and it came about despite the liberal propaganda we were being fed by the media and the Democrats and some retired military soreheads. Propaganda that the strategy was flawed, that we had an insufficient number of troops on the ground, that we had to pause because of all of this, that we were facing a quagmire in Baghdad and guerilla warfare from an outraged Iraqi citizenry that was rallying around the Saddam regime.
They were all lies.
As I watched the overjoyed Iraqis dragging the statues head through the streets, I couldnt help thinking how different things are under George Bush than they were under President Clinton. Under Clinton, it was the bodies of American soldiers being dragged though the streets of Mogadishu - an outrage Clinton allowed to go unpunished. His response was to cut and run. Today, thanks to George Bushs steely determination, it was Saddams statues head, pulled down by United States Marines, that was being dragged through the streets.

|Our troops give so much of themselves, and we all benefit from their efforts.
The next time you look at your bank balance, why not find some way to take some money and put it towards supporting the members of our armed services in some way? Maybe find a family who has someone serving, and buy them dinner, or some groceries, or a gift for their children? Maybe find a way to contribute to a fund for the memory of any of those who have fallen? Our armed forces deserve our support in tangible ways.

The "American Badhdad Bobs" - you'd think - would have enough political sense to realize critism is a dice roll. But they still do it.
My guess is they get heavy into their nightly "hate Bush" talk sessions and lose any sense of reality. The next day - they're still going.
In their fantasy world, their are no wars. Or if there are wars - there are no casualities.

And I thank God through Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour!
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."
As for Saddam's downfall, he cursed God, America and Israel many times throughout his brutal bloody, murdering life.
"I will bless them that bless thee and CURSE them that curse thee."
It is a wonderful day indeed. As for Saddam.
"It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness; for the throne is established by righteousness."
The liberal left who have purposely rejected God and his holy child Jesus, and undermined the religious freedom of Christians to lawfully witness, preach and teach the commandments and docrine of God's word and adamently continue to attack the Word of God through hypocritical methods and unconstitutional laws; they have no idea of the end they have predestined themselves, their children and now other peoples children to by the lie of the seperation of church and state. I have no doubt that God has been with our troops in this war against those who have condemned their own nations to abject failure by rejecting the Holy Spirit who witnesses of justice, judgement and rightiousness. Praise the Lord.
