Dear Mr. Obama,

Today I watched the most powerful and convincing thing I have ever seen in regards to this election. It is from a veteran of the Iraq War… please watch the video!!!!

Dear Mr. Obama, having spent 12 months in the Iraq theater, I can promise you, this was not a mistake. I witnessed firsthand the many sacrifices made by the people of Iraq. Those sacrifices were not mistakes. Iraqi people are just like us. They want a chance to live in a secure world, free from tyranny, free from terrorism, free to prosper, free to raise their children and pass on a future. Are they better off today than they were in 2002? You bet. I’ve seen many men sacrifice their lives for the Iraqi people. They died for a purpose, not a mistake. They died giving hope, they died promoting freedom. Do you rescue a fireman just as he’s about to save a child? When you call the Iraqi war a mistake, you disrespect the service and the sacrifice of everyone who has died promoting freedom. Freedom carries with it a price. Because you do not understand, nor appreciate these principles, sir, I am supporting John McCain for president. He, too, made a huge sacrifice promoting freedom, because he understands the fundamental truth, freedom is always worth the price.

  1. Freedom for Iraqis will only exist when they are the only ones in charge of their destiny. America would do much better bringing freedom to Saudi Arabia, the source of the 911 bombers and one of the least democratic countries in the world, still run by a feudal system with practically no women’s rights, no alcohol, and no tolerance.

    I respect anyone who has served in the military, but not military campaigns planned by politicians to gain more riches for themselves that are then dressed up as if they are designed to help others., especially when International Laws set up by the US are broken in the process.

    Winning at all costs does not mean giving up your morality too, but that is just what the Bush Administration has done: given up America’s moral lead in the world. They may claim moral supremacy in domestic affairs, but in International matters have clearly gone too far.

  2. How exactly has this war made any person in america richer?
    We are helping these people, and the only people who have any right to talk about what is going on over there, are the people fighting for us. Why would we take the word of liberal media members who are safe in their cushy offices, over the men and women on the ground, making sacrifices for us everyday?
    We have not given up our morality in any way shape or form, instead, we have brought that morality to Iraq, and given them options, freed them from opression by a dictator who had no care for the lives of his people.
    Regardless of whether or not one agrees with why we went to iraq, the reality is that we are there now, and we can’t just leave and expect Iraq to stay stable, if we leave now, another Hussien will take power, the cycle will start all over again, and we will find Iraq becoming yet another breeding groud for terrorism.
    My brother, who is in Iraq for his third tour of duty, related the war on terror to an infection- you have 2 options, take a medicine that will mask the symptoms, or take a medicine that will kill the infection. If you only mask the symptoms, then at some point, the medicine will wear off, and the infection will still be there; but if you kill it, it will be gone for good.
