Nine Warriors Story
Dear Mr. Davis
Thank you for your latest cover article on the brave people protecting freedom half a world away. (http://thecommunitypaper.com/archive/2008/08_21/index.php - Nine Funerals for Nine Warriors). These warriors may have been desperately fighting to protect themselves and their buddies, but one look at their attackers’ goals reveals that our soldiers were protecting us all.
I lived in South East Asia for 17 years and saw first hand the bloody enforcement of Islamic ideals (including the enslavement of women) and I lived through two wars between Moslems and their neighbors. As long as there is evil in the world, we must fight it in word and deed. Those willing to bleed and die in brutal battles for liberty deserve our support and thanks. These heroes receive mostly negative coverage in the main-stream media, and articles like yours go some way to addressing this injustice.
Thanks again for honoring those protecting our families and our freedoms.
Sincerely – Steve Truscott

I ask this simple question to those so concerned about qualifying a Vice President and, as far as that goes, President of the United States. What qualifications and experience did Harry Truman have to be elected and re-elected during the critical time of World War !!???
