Things that make you think a little.

There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq in January.
In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the
month of January. That's just one American city,
about as deadly as the entire war-torn country of Iraq.

    When some claim that President Bush shouldn't
    have started this war, state the following:

      a. FDR led us into World War II.

        b. Germany never attacked us; Japan did.
        From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost ...
        an average of 112,500 per year.

          c. Truman finished that war and started one in Korea.
          North Korea never attacked us.
          From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost ...
          an average of 18,334 per year.

            d John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962.
            Vietnam never attacked us.

              e. Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire.
              From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost ..
              an average of 5,800 per year.

                f. Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent.
                Bosnia never attacked us.
                He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three
                times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on
                multiple occasions.

                  g. In the years since terrorists attacked us , President Bush
                  has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled
                  al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran, and, North
                  Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who
                  slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.

                    The Democrats are complaining
                    about how long the war is taking.


                        It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno
                        to take the Branch Davidian compound.
                        That was a 51-day operation.

                          We've been looking for evidence for chemical weapons
                          in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find
                          the Rose Law Firm billing records.

                            It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the
                            Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard
                            than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his
                            Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.

                              It took less time to take Iraq than it took
                              to count the votes in Florida!
