Freedom into the heart of darkness

Dear President Bush:

The USA will be more respected around the world in the future, because of your principled stand and your commitment to spreading the idea of freedom into the heart of darkness. Just as the Eastern Europeans know that President Reagan stuck to his convictions and forced a final showdown with communism, Someday many people in the Middle East will recognize your contribution to building a free , peaceful and democratic Iraq. And ultimately the entire middle east.

There is now and has always been only one answer to the oppression, hatred and prejudices generated by the corrupt, brutal regimes which control the wealth and power in the middle east. That is for the USA to push, prod or power the ruling junta's into giving into the RIGHT human condition of freedom and self determination. The only way to close the madrassa's and terror training camps is to remove the criminal dictatorships which use them to subjugate their own people and fight a proxy war with the Western countries including the USA, Britain and Israel.

I have followed your Presidency closely and I hear all the slander, innuendo and flat lies directed at you, But I also know you haven't lied. I heard you state from the outset that this would be a war unlike any other. I understood the enemy you described and listened when you voiced the inhumane conditions which feeds such blind hatred. I understood you were talking about a struggle which would go on for decades or generations instead of months or years. I agree that the cruel and brutal governments those people live under were responsible for the hatred directed at the USA and it wasn't a result of any injustice America had forced on anyone. If we are guilty of anything it is of looking away and allowing the status quo dictatorships to kill and oppress their citizens when we should have been pushing for free elected governments.

I also don't believe the lie that Iraq isn't a part of the war against terrorism, while it is true al Queada attacked us. They are just one of many terror groups which are all interconnected and use the smoke screen of having different names or enemies as a disguise. They all exist because the illegal regimes with their conscripted and unmotivated armies in the middle east can't face Israel or the USA on the battlefield, So they support terror groups to fight a shadow war, hoping we'll believe they can't control those groups. Saddam was the biggest enemy the USA had period and the world is now and will continue to be a better place because he is in jail.

I have always been a proud American, however; I have never been prouder of my country and the men in our military than I am right now. Thank you President Bush for being a honest, principled man and thank you for being the 43rd President of this great country.

    Even GWB is a human, and as such he does make mistakes. If you can't acknowledge one mistake then maybe should should rethink your views. Are they justified in fact, or are they dogma?

    I pray people who listen to real news turn out to vote in force this year.

    The United States can not survive another four years of a CEO like Bush "in charge". Especially when he is the one who said the CEO is ultimately responsible for anything that happens while they are in control and Dub hasn't taken responsibility for anything.

    Too bad you don't know many facts out there in Longview...gee whiz, shucks, the last thing I heard today from a current CIA officer is that we are far MORE in danger of terrorist attack now that Bush and his cronies have invaded Iraq and killed thousands of Iraqis. Our actions have now exponentially increased the number of fascist extremists, and a CIA agent should know... this fact was also known in 1991 by none other than Shrubs' own Daddy.
    Let me know when the US is to become more respected around the world because a lot of the foreign press rightfully thinks of us as a laughing stock...(I expect it'll happen around November the 8th, when the world sees we have removed the Simian from the White House.)
    Dream on...Roy, since you are deluded into many beliefs without basis. Happy trails!

    Huh? Roy, are we talking about the same country and president here??? We will by no means be respected by the rest of the world....they hate us now and will hate us even more if Bush remains president and continues with this dictatorship. The rest of the world is laughing at us and our idiosyncratic behavior.

    Pardon me, Roy. Is that the cat that chewed your new shoes? I'll bet your dictionary is getting a real workout with words like"Simian" and "idiosyncratic". When you find out what they mean, let Dubya know.
