I am bewildered by the lack of comprehension of quite a few people in this country.
I have read about the wars and terrorists attacks in Afghanistan, Algeria, Australia, Bosnia, Chechnya, China, Egypt, France, Georgia, Greece, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Russia, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States, and a bunch of other smaller countries.
There are those who want us to draw a line to protect us from any more wars and anything more like 9-11.
President Bush wants to draw that line in Iraq. There seems to be a large number of people who want us to draw it on our Atlantic and Pacific shorelines.
U.S. Sens. Ted Kennedy and John Kerry want to draw it at the Massachusetts state line.
Sens. Barbara Boxer and Nancy Pelosi want to draw it at the California state line. Sens. Barack Obama and Dick Durbin choose the Illinois state line. Sen. Harry Reid likes the Nevada line.
There seems to be some local people who don't even want us to draw a line. At the appropriate time, then, they can don a burnoose and bow to the East or West or wherever.
Where would you, the reader, draw the line?
I'm with President Bush and his line: We must stand our ground or we won't have much ground left to stand on!
If it weren't for our military and President Roosevelt, we would be speaking German.
If it weren't for our military and President Truman, we would be speaking Japanese.
If it weren't for our military and President Reagan, we would be speaking Russian.
I don't want to speak Arabic.
God bless our military and President Bush!
