Dear George:

I am Canadian born and became a citizen of the US in 1968. I am very proud of it. Over the years, I saw a big change in my new country. I am seeing a People who are becoming more and more self centered - all for themselves. They are willing to reap the benefits but almost refuse to give, in return. They are also reluctant to pay for the price of freedom. Just to let you know that I am 100% behind you and so is my family.

After working 20 years as a Correctional Officer I see what you are doing and what the enemy of this country are doing in return. People need to experience what the bad guy is willing to do in order to really see the underneath of it all. We are seeing the enemy use fear techniques and succeeding in moving some countries to their will already. Just a few men so far succeeded in forcing some countries around our world to withdraw there help from the Iraq People. Don't they realize that once they have you begging you will have to beg for ever. Don't they all realize that once the enemy has you by the throat, he will slice your throat even if you agree with what they say or want. There are no limits as to what these people can do.

Now, I am seeing a divided country! My own People! I am seeing a people who are almost willing to make deals with the enemy of our country. Example: Would we hire a bank robber to work in our banks? Would we allow a rapist babysitting our children? So why are we making deals with someone who proved himself an enemy of our ways, culture, religion, families, laws and all that we stand for. I am sorry to say that the situation in the middle east will get far worse if we don't become almost as destructive towards them as they are towards us. I know, an eye for an eye!

On a small scale, you would never see a police man on the street when arresting someone not making sure that he is always on the upper hand of the situation. Likewise, I know that the selfishness of some people in our country handcuffs you from doing what should really be done with the enemy. Will it take a 9/11 incident every other day in our country to wake us up? Does the enemy really need to get us mad beyond control before we do something about it?

These enemies I am talking about, can't be treated fairly. I am sorry, they are not human beings. Today, I see that one more hostage got killed in Iraq. He got shot in the head three times. Because of that, instead of Turkey withdrawing their work force, they should deploy 1,000,000 troops in the region and so should all the other countries involved. How easy would it be for China to send enough men in Iraq to go shoulder to shoulder and march just like ants and clean the place up? They would be able to turn every stone and check every person in that whole area.

Meantime, keep up the good work and you have all our votes? That's a promise. You can always drop in for coffee. Our door will always be open for you.
