Often it would prove wise that during our daily activities and thoughts we stop and remember history. Much of the recent debate concerning the war on terror tends to do just that in its frequent recollection of the barbarity of 9/11. If the speakers of emphasis within our nation were generally trying to keep our morale high to continue this war, in all probability remembrance of 9/11 would be all we would need. But most of the highly publicized debate is in direct attempt to dissolve American resolve to defeat these murderers. We, therefore, need to remember (and remember often) more than that one incident in our political debates.

Back in the 1960's and early 1970's we were involved in a controversial 'police action' in Viet Nam. Even in setting aside that war's value or morality for the moment, we must remember the actions of an ideology in America and its effects at that time. They aided, abetted, and gave comfort to our enemy by their words and actions. This pictorial display featured in Winter Soldier gives a good reminder into the times:

"On Memorial Day, May 31, 2004, Vietnam Vets for the Truth broke an extraordinary story about a photograph hanging in the Vietnamese Communist War Remnants Museum (formerly known as the "War Crimes Museum") in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). The photograph, displayed in a room dedicated to foreign activists who contributed to the Communist victory over America in the Vietnam War, shows Senator John Kerry being greeted by Comrade Do Muoi, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam."(emphasis mine)

When the enemy recognizes your countrymen's contribution to their cause, one can gain a greater understanding of the stabbing pain between the scapulae.

It is the same situation today through the impudent speeches by the leftist politicians and protestors. It is the same today as demonstrated by the slanted news of an ideological press. I hope that someday they are NOT featured in a bin Laden museum as contributing to the success of Al Qaeda's victories.

Moonbat dissenters: Get like-minded people elected and change the situation by means afforded us all by the Constitution. At present you are acting like 'thieves in the night', or perhaps more akin to child molesters, taking advantage of the unsuspecting by talking up a bogus moral theme.

I think it's a testament to Bush that the photo of Kerry & comrades wasn't brought to light in the campaign. That restraint almost cost him the election; imagine discovering that fact after Kerry took office.

Great post Steve, and nice smack-down of the moonbats.

I think Bush may have been afraid of 'outing' Kerry as a covert CIA agent.
In many ways Bush is kind of a 'strange duck' to me. It seems that there have been numerous times that he could have knocked the Democrats' assertions out of the park, but hasn't.
I believe he is just a thoughtful responder rather than a quick reactor. He also probably has a reverential opinion of the 'office of the presidency' and in respect to that he holds his tongue more often than I would like him to.
