BUSH #1 (brent look)

***this was a e-mail that I got, thought i would show it off ***
The Facts

The following appeared in a local paper as a letter to the editor.
Please forward to all on your list as this will put things in
perspective:

Some claim Pres. Bush shouldn't have started this war. They complain
about his prosecution of it. One person recently claimed Bush was the
worst president in U.S. history.

Let's clear up one point: We didn't start the war on terror. Try to
remember. It was started by terrorists on 9/11. Let's look at the
"worst" president and mismanagement claims.

F.D. Roosevelt led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us:
Japan did. From 1941-1945, 450,000 American lives were lost, an
average of 112,500 per year.

Truman finished that war and started one in Korea. North Korea never
attacked us. From 1950-1953, 55,000 American lives were lost, an
average of 18,333 per year.

Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us.

Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire. From 1965-1975, 58,000
American lives were lost, an average of 5,800 per year.

Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent. Bosnia
never attacked us. He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter
three times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on
multiple occasions.

In the two years since terrorists attacked us, Pres. Bush has liberated
two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida. He put nuclear
inspectors in Lybia, Iran and North Korea without firing a shot, and
captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000+ of his own people.

We lost 600 soldiers, an average of 300 a year. Bush did all this
abroad while not allowing another terrorist attack at home.


Worst president in history? Come on, get with the facts!!


Please forward to all on your list as this will put things in
perspective.

F.D. Roosevelt led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us:

look who was running germany at the time, plus he had already taken over half of europe and was attacking shipping lines plus the brits and french.



Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us.


In August 1964, the North Vietnamese attacked two U.S. destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin. Consequently, Congress gave the president authority to send more troops into Vietnam. By late 1965 185,000 soldiers were located in Vietnam.


I could go on, but every conflict, war, skirmish, fight or whatever, IMO was for good reason. Not to discredit whoever wrote that e-mail, but I think they should do a little more research.

I think all those Wars were just as well as the war in Iraq. I would have supported Clinton going into Iraq and would have supported Gore. I would not have voted for them though but thats because of other issues such as I would not have been to the point ot support Gore in a war against Iraq because THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ONE. Sadaam would still be in power smoking his cigar and his two songs would still be alive.

Facts.

Hilter ddeclared war on the US, then we reciprocated. Claimng ROOSEVELT "lead" us into war with Germany is specious at best.

Eisenhower sent the troops to Vietnam, at first as advisors. My old man was there in 1962, two years before the Tonkin incident and he wasn't an advisor. There is some question as to the veracity of the claims made by the Johnson administration's claims regarding the Tonkin incident.

North Korea may not have attacked US territory but it sure attacked our troops stationed in South Korea. Claiming Truman "lead" us into a war with NK is false.

While I support our President and our troops I don't think false examples help garner support. There is no need to do so, the actions of President Bush speak well enough for themselves.

Wow, man that hurt. Really, grow up. You aren't impressing anyone with your whole "pot is cool" thing, maybe the third grader in bed next to you likes it, but it just makes you look more retarded than you already are (if thats possible) to everyone elese who has passed puberty already. Grow up and get a life. I'm done with you.

I hate I missed all that..could have been quite fun. I would have been on here had the power to campus not gone off at like 9:30 and not come back on till this morning..blew a huge transformer. O well...I say everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion. As far as I'm concerned, Bush had just as much authority to send troops overseas as any other president that has sent troops into war. We didn't flame those presidents, why flame Bush? IMO he's the best president we've had this century...

I didn't mean to imply the post bashed President Bush. I believe the point I was making is this, the examples cited are somewhat false in thier claims. These examples are supposed to help show President Bush is doing right. Using false claims to prove someone is right is not proving that is it?

As for the pot smoker, if he's an example of those against the President, all I got to say is "This is your brain on drugs".
