Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

From The Mouths Of Babes
by Cordeiro
Matt over at Blackfive pointed me to this posting on the blog Iraq War Today. I won't steal any of Brittany's thunder. She's eight years old and understands a lot more than most left wing politicans and pundits do.

I'm not sure this letter suggests she understands a whole lot one way or the other.

The only thing I can glean from this is her parents support the war. I'd be wary of having eight-year olds becoming advocates for the Iraq War.
Cordeiro, thanks for the link to Brittany's card.

Prisoner - the point is, she understands that the troops should be supported, period. And judging by the response the post has gotten from deployed Heroes, she got it right.

And to set the record straight, SHE approached her Dad on this, NOT the other way around.

Methinks you may be one of those who doesn't get it.
Supporting troops should never equate to supporting the actions they are forced to task. It is their jobs, and you'll find just as many support the president as don't, but all of them do it because it's their job. Making it political is dangerous is as dangerous to our troops as abandoning them.

And if we as citizens who elect our government cease to become critical of their deployment, we cease to do our job.

Use the freedom they protect or lose it.
and you'll find just as many support the president as don't

That premise is unsupported by every single poll conducted on military personnel (commissioned and non-commissioned) that I've ever seen. By and large, the military supports W. Yes, you'll find dissenting voices, but they are far fewer than you, or the MSM, would like to believe.

As for your other points, I'd remind you that war and politics are very often intertwined and difficult to separate. War is a continuation of politics by other means.
