Remembering brave soldiers and cowardly politicians on Memorial Day. Showing respect for the former and disgust for the later.

This Memorial Day is not the day to talk about politics but to honor the memory of our brave men and women who fought and died for their country. But were it not for those gutless, spineless politicians who interfered with the conduct of our Armed Forces during their battles, the number of slain American soldiers would be a whole lot less. There may be some argument on this but in my opinion, because of the way liberal politics meddled with the military, America has not won a war since we defeated Germany and Japan in WWII. The only exception was the brief invasion of Grenada in 1983. Coincidentally, since WWII there has been an increase in the number of liberals in our government who have influenced or directed our military leaders to seek stalemates, containment's or truces with our enemies instead of victory. When American soldiers sacrifice their lives on any battlefield, anything less than victory is intolerable and those who endorse anything but victory should be despised. 

After WWII, in 1950 for the first time in American history, our Armed Forces were ordered to fight a war not under the flag of the United States. The liberals, and yes, some communists, too, in our State Department turned over our military command to the United Nations in Korea and we fought under the U.N. flag. The liberals prevented our troops from invading North Korea so we fought for nothing but a truce. General Douglas MacArthur, the Supreme Allied Commander, was relieved of his duties for insisting on using the atomic bomb to create a wasteland to forever keep North Korea from invading the South. Since the Armistice was signed in 1953 North Korea has been a threat to the world ever since and for 58 years America has maintained an armed force on the 38th parallel to keep the peace. The cost in American lives was 33,686 battle deaths, along with 2,830 non-battle deaths during the Korean War and 8,176 missing in action

The next big war after Korea that the liberal Democrats got us into was in South Vietnam which ended in defeat for America in 1975 with the fall of Saigon. The Democrats in Washington sent American troops to Vietnam and forced our soldiers to fight with one arm tied behind their backs. They were prevented from invading the enemy's territory and our liberal leaders even apologized for bombing the ships belonging to some of our so-called friends that were bringing supplies to North Vietnam in Hanoi. This war cost America 58,267 killed in action, 303,644 wounded in action, and 1,711 MIA's (Missing In Action).

In 1990, liberal Republican George H. W. Bush ordered a stand down of the 543,000 allied coalition troops that had surrounded Baghdad in the Persian Gulf War. American and allied troops had been on the verge of wiping out Saddam Hussein's Iraqi army after a successful campaign led by Gen
. Norman Schwarzkopf to defend Kuwait from Saddam Hussein's invasion. That stand down allowed Saddam Hussein to remain in power which necessitated the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

In 1992, Democrat Bill Clinton sent our troops to Boznia, Herzegovina to protect an extermination of Muslims. Islam returned the favor by attacking our troops in Lebanon and Somalia. Sudan, a country divided among Christians and Muslims became aware of the rising influence of a Muslim terrorist named Osama bin Laden and offered to deliver him to President Clinton but he declined to accept the offer. 

So, enough of the history lesson, the failure of liberals has been very costly to American troops. Here are some photos of the traveling version of the Vietnam Memorial, a 1/2 size replica of the permanent memorial in Washington, D.C. that passed through here recently. It shows the names of all of the soldiers killed in action in chronological order from the first to the last.
