They died for us, for the Iraqi's first taste of freedom and to settle some old scores, and frankly in this American's opinion, those people there owe them their asses and us their oil for the next 25 years for asses kicked and 'Mission Accomplished', but thanks to the liberals we'll never see a dime of that sort of payback money.
This day would have happened 5 years ago if the liberals in this country would have kept their mouths and keyboards shut, and supported the war effort like every American sans Vietnam has done during our entire history for the 6 years before bonehead Obama was elected as they have since, as we have the entire time, from the night it started with Shock and Awe.
But they didn't and here we sit 5 years later and almost 4500 military men and women lighter since 911.
Even though Iraq had no direct connection to 911 aside from one meeting and the harboring of some Al Queda, our government were the boneheads that created Saddam, so finally after 911 it was up to us to kill the monster before he piled on the 'fun', and our finest in the world military did just that, delivering Saddam and his sons' heads on silver platters to the Iraqi's as promised.
So, perhaps we'll just nuke em next time, because there will be a next time we can rest assured, as long as Islam exists in this world.
Welcome home when you get here, God Bless you all, and the United States of America.
And to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible (until the Woodstock liberals came along) with liberty (same thing) and justice for all. (social justice if you're a NAACP peep)
