New American-The only concession I'll make is that todays' Protesters take the form (for the most part) of You & ilk and are not in the Urine Throwing business as I was subjected to in the Oakland Airport many years ago. I'm sorry to concede, though, that far too many of that group (hippies is a kind description) bred and produced a new gaggle of pacifists! All I can say in summation is "Better to fight 'em over there!" I DO, INDEED HOPE YOU/YOURS NEVER HAVE TO BE DEPENDED UPON TO DEFEND YOURSELVES!
Ten years ago today, U.S. air, sea and land forces attacked Iraq. And the great goals of Operation Iraqi Freedom?

Destroy the chemical and biological weapons Saddam Hussein had amassed to use on us or transfer to al-Qaida for use against the U.S. homeland.

Exact retribution for Saddam's complicity in 9/11 after we learned his agents had met secretly in Prague with Mohamed Atta.

Create a flourishing democracy in Baghdad that would serve as a catalyst for a miraculous transformation of the Middle East from a land of despots into a region of democracies that looked West.

Not all agreed on...
