"The hour is fast approaching, on which the Honor and Success of this army, and the safety of our bleeding Country depend. Remember officers and Soldiers, that you are Freemen, fighting for the blessings of Liberty -- that slavery will be your portion, and that of your posterity, if you do not acquit yourselves like men." --George Washington

"You are the army of the last semi-free country left on earth, yet you are accused of being a tool of imperialism -- and 'imperialism' is the name given to the foreign policy of this country, which has never engaged in military conquest.... Something called 'the military-industrial complex' -- which is a myth or worse -- is being blamed for all of this country's troubles...it is urgently important for you to understand the nature of the enemy. You are attacked, not for any errors or flaws, but for your virtues.... You are penalized for being the protectors of the United States. Those who seek to destroy this country, seek to disarm it--intellectually and physically.... The motive of the destroyers is...hatred of America." --Ayn Rand to West Point graduates of 1974.
"When I hear Peter Jennings (Canadian Citizen) who makes a fortune in our country, or Paula Zahn, pretty but politically mindless -- I have heard some say that about Peter too -- relish in any perceived delay or U.S. misfortune in the war in Iraq, I remember what we Marines in Vietnam said about the liberal-left anti-military sentiments during the 60's, and early 70's. Illigitimi non-corborundum -- 'Don't let the bastards get you down!' Here is a shout out to our troops: Hoo Yaah. Do your job proudly and come home safe. Thank you!
"An honorable Peace is and always was my first wish! I can take no delight in the effusion of human Blood; but, if this War should continue, I wish to have the most active part in it." --John Paul Jones
"To each of my Nephews, William Augustine Washington, George Lewis, George Steptoe Washington, Bushrod Washington, and Samuel Washington, I give one of my swords or Cutteaux of which I may be Possesed; and they are to chuse in the order they are named. These Swords are accompanied with an injuction not to unsheath them for the purpose of shedding blood, except it be for self defense, or in the defense of their Country and its rights; and in the latter case, to keep them unsheathed, and prefer falling with them in their hands, to the relenquishment thereof." --From the last will and testament of George Washington
"The military lessons to be learned from the lead-up to the Iraq operation are profound, and all point in the same direction: America should always have the means to act alone, in any area of the globe where danger threatens and with whatever force is necessary. ...The U.S. must not merely possess the means to act alone if necessary; it must also cultivate the will. Fate, or Divine Providence, has placed America at this time in the position of sole superpower, with the consequent duty to uphold global order and to punish, or prevent, the great crimes of the world. That is what America did in Afghanistan, is in the process of doing in Iraq and will have to do elsewhere. It must continue to engage the task imposed upon it, not in any spirit of hubris but in the full and certain knowledge that it is serving the best and widest interests of humanity." --Paul Johnson
"The terrorist threat raises questions we have never faced before. Our enemy is not interested in conquest, but rather destabilizing civilization. That is why President Bush has adopted a strategy of confronting the axis of evil, nations that are producing weapons of mass destruction and that are willing to supply terrorists. We can't find the two thousand or so terrorist cells that exist around the world, so what we have to do is go to the places where weapons of mass destruction are being made and eliminate them. Bush is right. Civilized people could not live in an environment where terrorists are armed with weapons of mass destruction. It would quickly result in either a police state or anarchy. President Bush wisely recognizes this and is forging a bold, new foreign policy. As he said in his speech, 'Instead of drifting along toward tragedy, we will set a course toward safety. Before the day of horror can come, before it is too late to act, this danger will be removed.' ...The doctrine of just war, we must remember, flows out of the Christian command to love your neighbor. It is an act of love to wield the sword against evil and against threats to innocent lives. A justly fought war against Saddam Hussein will be ... just such a war." --Chuck Colson
"And as we renew ourselves here in our own land, we will be seen as having greater strength throughout the world. We will again be the exemplar of freedom and a beacon of hope for those who do not now have freedom. To those neighbors and allies who share our freedom, we will strengthen our historic ties and assure them of our support and firm commitment. We will match loyalty with loyalty. We will strive for mutually beneficial relations. We will not use our friendship to impose on their sovereignty, for our own sovereignty is not for sale. As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people. We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it; we will not surrender for it -- now or ever. Our forbearance should never be misunderstood. Our reluctance for conflict should not be misjudged as a failure of will. When action is required to preserve our national security, we will act. We will maintain sufficient strength to prevail if need be, knowing that if we do so we have the best chance of never having to use that strength. Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have. It is a weapon that we as Americans do have. Let that be understood by those who practice terrorism and prey upon their neighbors." --Ronald Reagan (1981)
"War precipitates clarity as well as confusion, and the war against Iraq already has clarified this: The United Nations is not a good idea badly implemented, it is a bad idea. ...Certain political phrases become, through mindless repetition, cant that bewitches the intelligence. One such phrase is 'the international community,' which is oxymoronic because 'community' denotes unity based on shared political interests and cultural values. And beware of political entities absurdly named. Just as the Holy Roman Empire was neither holy nor Roman nor an empire, the UN is a disunited collection of regimes, many of which do not represent the nations they govern. The UN is premodern because it is unaccountable and irresponsible: It claims power not legitimized by the recurring consent of periodically consulted constituencies of the governed. Inebriated by self-approval, the UN is grounded in neither democratic consent nor territorial responsibilities, nor independent fiscal means, nor the material means of enforcing its judgments." --George Will
"Wordy, slow, at cross-purposes, impotent, officious, insufferable ... the United Nations may be many things. But serious? If it were serious, if it had been serious for the last 12 years about disarming Iraq, Saddam Hussein wouldn't be a problem today. ... Speaking about the demand that Saddam destroy his illegal missiles (among a lot of other scary weapons), the [United Nations] secretary-general [Kofi Annan] said of this latest contretemps, 'We hope it will be resolved peacefully, without the interference of others, particularly the Americans'." --Paul Greenberg

"All of this [recent] history has been conveniently washed down the Hollywood memory hole. So too has much of the record of American foreign policy successes over the last 20 years. I remember when majorities of people in Western Europe opposed the deployment of Cruise and Pershing missiles to counteract new Soviet missiles aimed at NATO member states. The demonstrations dwarfed even today's 'peace' marches. History shows that was the right course of action; along with President Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative, it helped precipitate the collapse of the Soviet Union. I also remember when Leftists and Hollywood stars of all stripes opposed American intervention in Grenada and supported the Sandinista regime in Nicaragua. The people of both countries have shown their gratitude for our help and today live in freedom. I remember, too, how many countries were hesitant to join the allied coalition in the 1991 Gulf War, fearing that it would turn out horribly. History has proved them wrong. Nothing moves world opinion like success. If the 'coalition of the willing,' acting with or without further UN approval, succeeds in ridding the world of Saddam Hussein's regime, world attitudes will shift quickly -- just as they did after the collapse of the Soviet Union. As television screens fill with scenes of Iraqis greeting American soldiers as liberators, spitting on portraits of a toppled Saddam and pouring forth tales of the torture and degradation, these celebrities will have little to say. Their silence will speak volumes." --John Fund
"We make war that we may live in peace." --Aristotle
"A just fear of an imminent danger, though there be no blow given, is a lawful cause of war." --Sir Francis Bacon
"On the day of Ronald Reagan's inauguration in 1981, Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini released 52 American hostages he had held for 444 days. He had kept them that long because he realized a weak and indecisive President Jimmy Carter (who now advises President Bush to follow a similar path) wasn't going to employ force to get them back. The Ayatollah rightly feared that Reagan might turn Iran into a parking lot if he didn't let our people go. Terrorists now attack us here and around the world. Rogue regimes and even some European nations that would not be free to criticize us had we not spilled our blood for their freedom now spit in our eye with impunity, because, like Gulliver tied up by the Lilliputians, or Samson after his haircut, we appear unable or unwilling to respond. Nowhere is our indecisiveness on display more than at the United Nations.... It's a cliché, but no less true, that freedom isn't free. The United Nations, whose bills are mainly paid by the United States, has proved it has another agenda than promoting freedom around the world. Following the certain liberation and rebuilding of Iraq while the coalition of cowards is trying to cover its posterior once weapons of mass destruction are found, the United States should either reduce its role and contributions to the United Nations or get out entirely. Maybe Guinea would like to be the host country." --Cal Thomas
Despite the Leftmedia's nonstop coverage of anti-war demonstrations, (complete with their vanguard of radical left-wing Hollywood "actors"), they have ignored hundreds of "Rallies for America" attended by thousands of Americans coast to coast, who have been turning out to show their support for our President and troops. There are many rallies scheduled for this weekend. To learn when and where,

"England has been offered a choice between war and shame. She has chosen shame and will get war." --Winston Churchill
"The French couldn't hate us any more unless we helped 'em out in another war." --Will Rogers
"How will the world look when the guns fall silent and the smoke clears? Whatever the result of the UN Security Council vote this week, it is no longer possible to argue that the United States is or will be 'isolated.' Britain, Spain, Italy, Eastern Europe and almost 30 countries in all have signed up to help America liberate Iraq. At the same time, the old Cold War pattern of allies and enemies has dissolved. France, Germany, Russia and China are united in opposing independent U.S. military action in the Iraq crisis -- and, more broadly, in opposing the dominance of the single American superpower. And the institutions of Western unity that helped to win the Cold War, notably NATO and the European Union, are thrown into crisis." --John O'Sullivan
"President Clinton got it right, verbally at least, in 1998. He said then that Iraq was 'a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists, drug traffickers or organized criminals.' In urging strong action on Iraq, The Washington Post referred to Clinton's words as 'perceptive but ultimately empty' because they led to no meaningful action. In the post-9/11 world, refusing to act is far more dangerous. Saddam has the ability and the hostility to churn out weapons for those who wish to inflict grave damage on the United States. It's time to do something about it." --John Leo
"There is no cookie-cutter approach to foreign policy. In the Axis of Evil, one size does not fit all -- nor should it." --Peter Brookes
"The same people who don't want the U.S. to disarm Saddam Hussein are demanding that Mr. Bush drop everything and disarm Kim Jong Il -- right now, if not faster. A lot of this, probably most of it, can be dismissed as partisan politics. Having lost the congressional vote and public debate on Iraq, some Democrats figure that North Korea is their opening to assail Mr. Bush's foreign policy. Thus we have the spectacle of Ted Kennedy and Robert Byrd, who worry not at all about Saddam getting nuclear weapons, now thundering that North Korea is the 'more immediate threat.' These are doves wearing press-on hawk talons for the TV cameras." --Wall Street Journal
Editor's Note: With Iran's nuclear power facility about to come on line, with the ability to produce enriched uranium suitable for nuclear weapons, look for these same pseudo-hawks to add Tehran to the list of regimes posing far more imminent threats to the U.S. than does Saddam Hussein.
"France cynically sees inspections not as a way to disarm Iraq, but to disarm the United States." --James Phillips
"For all our might and technology, the confluence of terror and Weapons of Mass Destruction has the power to destroy us -- if we do not destroy it first. We are at the beginning, not the end, of a terrible new age." --Stanley Kurtz
"It is not the conservative psyche that needs analysis. Conservatives were right in the Cold War --so right that liberals are pretending they were with us all along -- and they are right about Iraq. It is Leftists who need to account for their consistently disgraceful positions throughout the Cold War and into the War on Terror." --David Limbaugh
"A free Iraq would not just be an active partner in the war on terror, but its very existence would sap the recruitment strength of the worldwide terror network -- and that factor would spread to neighboring nations as freedom does." --Joel Mowbray
"If we remain determined to shape a new and better world of separate, sovereign nations, this new century will be a happier one." --Alan Caruba
The Saudi government postures and preens about its opposition to terrorism, but according to Israel's former ambassador to the United Nations, Dore Gold, there's much more linking them to terrorism than just the fact that the September 11 terrorists were mostly Saudis. In fact, there is evidence linking the highest levels of Saudi government and society to radical and frankly terrorist Muslim groups. All the evidence is laid out in Gold's shocking new expose, Hatred's Kingdom: Saudi Arabia, Wahhabism, and the Rise of Global Terrorism. "If you read one book to understand the roots of al-Qa'ida's fury, it should be this one." --R. James Woolsey, former Director of the CIA.

"The time has come for the president to publicly declare that it is the decision of the United States government to lead an invasion of Iraq with the intent to change the regime as soon as our military is prepared to successfully carry out the mission. ... Further delay only strengthens the political opposition around the world and at home. ... Fundamentally, now is the time when power must replace persuasion. The president must guard against letting prudence and patience turn into dithering and indecision." --Washington Times

"To be a true hero you must be a true Christian. To sum up, then, heroism is largely based on two qualities -- truthfulness and unselfishness, a readiness to put one's own pleasure aside for that of others, to be courteous to all ... even if helpfulness demands some slight sacrifice of your own pleasure ... You must remember that these two qualities are the sign of Christian heroism." G.A. Henty

Farm and cabin households, though bookless save for the Family Bible and The Sacred Harp, taught the girls to spin, weave, quilt, cook, sew, and mind their manners; the boys to wield gun, ax, hammer and saw, to ride, plow, sow and reap, and to be men.

I never change classes in the section room without a minute's petition on the cadets who go out and those who come in." Stonewall Jackson - The Christian Warrior
"As a moral and social institution, a weekly rest is invaluable. It is a quiet domestic reunion for the bustling sons of toil. It ensures the necessary vacation in those earthly and turbulent anxieties and affections, which would otherwise become inordinate and morbid. It brings around a season of periodical neatness and decency, when the soil of weekly labour is laid aside, and men meet each other amidst the decencies of the sanctuary, and renew their social affections. But above all, a Sabbath (one day of rest in seven) is necessary for man's moral and religious interests." R.L. Dabney on the Christian Sabbath

It is better to wear out than to rust out.~ Richard Cumberland
Intimate or drastic elements in the work of others are untouchable and should not be commented upon even in their absence.

Every scripture is inspired by God and useful for (pastors) teaching, for reproof (proving you wrong in rebuke), for (your) correction, and for training (you) in righteousness, that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work - Bible NT 2Tim3
When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers. Emerson.

"You know the words from the Bible: 'Build not on sand, but on rock....' Tyrant leaders respect only firmness...and laugh at persons who give in to them." --Alexander Solzhenitsyn born 1918.
"He that would govern others, first should be the master of himself." --Philip Massinger
"Man is the only animal who causes pain to others with no other object than wanting to do so." --Arthur Schopenhauer
The burden of "keeping the flame" has, throughout history, fallen on the shoulders of a few. As our favorite Founding Patriot Samuel Adams noted, "It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." That describes YOU!
"I cannot consent to place in the control of others one who cannot control himself." --Robert E. Lee
"Government is not reason, it is not eloquence --it is force." -- George Washington
Government force is derived from the sum of the physical force each citizen could exert which by one citizen himself would be ineffective, but when summed from the force of all the area's citizens indeed composes a power no citizen or group can withstand. That force is then rightly but justly to be used against those who violate the foundation pillars of freedom. - Von Mises
The pillars of a nation are Privacy, Private Ownership of Property, and Freedom. From those come Freedom to choose and to be responsible; Marriage; Family; and Nationalism. From Nationalism comes citizenship establishing governments and militaries within national boundaries. The private ownership and control of ones own property is the means of production. The results of the means of production whether real property; material possessions, or monies must remain under private control or freedoms are lost. - Moses principles in the Ten Commandments
"God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it." --Daniel Webster
"Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president...." --Theodore Roosevelt
"Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice, moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue." --Barry Goldwater, (Officer of the Day at Pearl Harbor Dec 7 1941)

"Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God." --Thomas Jefferson
"Cleave ever to the sunnier side of doubt." --Alfred, Lord Tennyson
"Live in the world you inhabit. Look upon things as they are. Take them as you find them. Make the best of them. Turn them to your advantage." --Robert E. Lee
"How you treat the helpless is the real test of morality. Lots of people are flunking that test big time." --Thomas Sowell
"Arms are the only true badges of liberty. The possession of arms is the distinction of a free man from a slave." --Andrew Fletcher (1698)
"The most remarkable change in the moral history of mankind has been the rise -- and occasionally the application -- of the view that all people, and not just one's own kind, are entitled to fair treatment." --James Q. Wilson
"The Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky once suggested that any Western policy towards Communists should be evaluated by the following test: What does it look like to the men and women in the camps? In Castro's camps, they are weeping." --National Review Online. (And in Saddam's camps?)
"The characteristic of genuine heroism is its persistency. All men have wandering impulses, fits and starts of generosity. But when you have resolved to be great, abide by yourself, and do not try to reconcile yourself with the world. The heroic cannot be common, nor the common heroic." --Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Hold on, my friends, to the constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has happened once in 6000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world." -Daniel Webster
"It is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to owe their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord...." --Abraham Lincoln, 1863
"Hope ... means ... a continual looking forward to the eternal world. ..It does not mean that we are to leave the present world as it is. If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next. ...It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. Aim at Heaven and you will get earth 'thrown in': aim at earth and you will get neither." --C.S. Lewis
"Sweet are the uses of adversity, Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous, Wears yet a precious jewel in his head; And this our life exempt from public haunt, Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, Sermons in stones, and advantage in everything." --William Shakespeare
"I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom." --General George Patton
"Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact." --William James (All life was given by the Lord of Life and has a purpose)
"I observed a thousand acts of courage, compassion and love [as a POW] and I will always treasure that memory above all others." --Sen. John McCain, revisiting Hanoi
"Although Ronald Reagan and subsequent presidents have lavished Vietnam vets with praise, we can never give them what they deserve, which is their youth. We lost nearly 60,000 Americans in a war plagued by shabby planning on one side and a narcissistic sissy anti-war movement on the other. Young people were instructed to fight, but not given the means to win. And when they stumbled home from the hell of jungle warfare, they had to endure taunts from a protest movement that viewed its cowardice as a form of nobility. This sorry legacy does, however, permit us to formulate a pithy summary of the 'lessons of Vietnam.' First, if you enter a war, declare war and build popular support. Second, fight to win. Third, honor those who serve. And fourth, remember: A strong military is necessary not just to fight wars, but to prevent them. No sane outfit will mess with a superpower that not only has the means to fight, but the will to punish aggressors." --Tony Snow
"History owes something to those who went to Vietnam, and to the judgment of those who believed the endeavor was worthwhile. We can still debate whether the war was worth its cost, but the evidence of the past 25 years clearly upholds the validity of our intentions." --James Webb
"There is no truth more thoroughly established than that there exists in the economy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness; between duty and advantage." --George Washington
"It is sweet and honorable to die for one's country." --Horace
"The struggle ... between doing what you ought and what you desire is common to all. You have only always to do what is right. It will become easier by practice, and you will enjoy in the midst of your trials the pleasure of an approving conscience. That will be worth everything else." --Robert E. Lee
"A nation's strength is found not in the number of its laws but in the character of its people." --James Montgomery Boice
Do not seek to be a teacher, rather seek to be taught. - unknown
"Our country was not predestined to prosper; it did so through choices made at its Founding and renewed every generation since: the choices of freedom over rule, private property over collectivization, the liberty of the individual human spirit over the dictates of the enlightened few." --James S. Robbins
"If we lack the moral courage to save others, we may need the physical courage to save ourselves." --David C. Stolinsky, M.D.

"The very best kind of Saddam Hussein is the very dead kind." --A.M. Rosenthal
"Any country on the face of the Earth with an active intelligence program knows that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction." --Donald Rumsfeld
"Keep in mind that the Iraqis are not telling us anything we don't already know or can't prove. This is what makes this whole inspection process and all the rigmarole surrounding it a total farce." --Rush Limbaugh
"The temporary peace of denial and looking away from danger would only be a prelude to broader war and greater horror." Pres. G.W. Bush 2002
"I rejoice in a belief that intellectual light will spring up in the dark corners of the earth; that freedom of enquiry will produce liberality of conduct; that mankind will reverse the absurd position that the many were, made for the few; and that they will not continue slaves in one part of the globe, when they can become freemen in another." --George Washington
"The truth is, all might be free if they valued freedom, and defended it as they ought." --Samuel Adams
"The man who will not act until he knows all will never act at all." --Jim Elliot
"There is no safety for honest men except by believing all possible evil of evil men." --Edmund Burke

"An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile hoping it will eat him last." --Winston Churchill
"If everyone is thinking alike then somebody isn't thinking." --George S. Patton
"Let's go back to the Philippines in 1911. There was an outbreak of terrorism among a violent group of breakaway Islams. General Black Jack Pershing of WWI fame was in command. Pershing evolved a plan. Knowing that in their religion to ascend to Allah, the pig is not to be associated with in any way - not to be eaten, not to be touched, not to go near. Pershing did the following: When the next terrorist found guilty of murder was executed, this was the procedure. The terrorist dug his own grave, he was tied to a stake, and the bullets used in the execution were soaked in pig blood. When he died, his body was dropped into the hole and was covered with pig entrails. When word spread among the religious fanatics, terrorism came to an abrupt halt." --George Putnam
"There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war." --George Washington
"Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny." --Frank Outlaw
"It is a fashionable assertion in these troubled times that nations must focus on economic, not military strength. Over the long run, it is true, no nation can remain militarily strong while economically exhausted. But I would remind you that defeats on the battlefield occur in the short run.... Power still matters. More precisely, economic power is not a replacement for military power. Lest we forget, Kuwait's economic wealth did not protect it from the predatory Saddam Hussein; quite the opposite. Nor was the Iraqi dictator finally driven from Kuwait because his GNP was smaller than that of the U.S., Britain or Japan. It is not the industrial productivity of democracies that is feared by ... armed bandits ... but the kill rates of their gunships." --Ronald Reagan
"The terror regimes supply the meat and drink of international terror, and for that reason they must be overturned. But that isn't all they provide. As it did in the Cold War and the war against Hitler, the United States is fighting not just a military enemy but an ideological one. Moscow commanded armies of soldiers and armies of true believers in communism. Communism was both a seductive economic creed and a doctrine of totalitarian control. Islamism -- radical, violent Islam -- offers the terror masters and their legions much the same thing. Though outwardly a religious movement, it is as totalitarian as Communism was and no less bent on conquest. What broke the Soviet stranglehold and drained its influence around the globe was more than U.S. military pressure. So long as the tide of history ran with the Communists, their empire appeared invincible, and that seeming invincibility was a lure to radicals the world over. But in the 1980s the tide of history turned. ...It became increasingly clear that the Communist vision was not, after all, the wave of the future. The Communist cause died, and with it the regimes that embodied that cause. Our mission now is to kill the Islamist cause. We can do so only by killing the tyrannies that sustain it -- by demonstrating that Islamism leads not to triumph but to defeat, not to power but to degradation. Crush the Islamists' dream and we crush the terrorism it feeds. We made a good start in Kabul and Kandahar. Next stop: Baghdad." --Jeff Jacoby
"I believe you can divide the people into two basic groups, those who believe government is a necessary good and those who believe it is a necessary evil, those who want government to take care of them, those who want government to leave them alone. I believe government is a necessary evil and I want it to leave me pretty much alone. I think that's how the Founding Fathers felt. I think that the reason they wrote the Constitution the way they did and then added the first ten amendments was to try to insure the people against the possibility of being ruled and controlled by an overbearing, tyrannical government. -- Lyn Nofziger
"They have given us a republic, if we can keep it" -- "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin
"What steps can you take to ensure keeping your cool? Take your job seriously, BUT don't take people's complaints personally. If you take it personally you'll get upset, and lose your edge. If you take it too personally, you'll lose your edge and your job. If you take it seriously - it's you with them. If you take it personally, it's you against them. " --Jeffrey Gitomer
"The future doesn't belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave."
"Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid."
"One legislator accused me of having a 19th century attitude on law and order. That is a totally false charge. I have an 18th century attitude. That is when the Founding Fathers made it clear that the safety of law abiding citizens should be one of government's primary concerns."
"National Defense is not a threat to peace; it is the guarantee of peace with freedom."
"There is simply no substitute for forceful American leadership. Sometimes the best way to get allies is to be willing to forge ahead alone." --Rich Lowry
"We saw it in Hitler's Germany. We saw it in the Soviet Union. We saw it in Cambodia, and eventually we will see it in Cuba. And once Saddam fails and falls, the Iraqi people will shock and disgust the world by revealing the full, ghastly scope of Saddam's oppression." --House Majority Leader Tom DeLay
"Ammunition beats persuasion when you are looking for freedom." --Will Rogers
"It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions (their insatiable lusts, their unending desires) forge their fetters." --Edmund Burke
"The shallow consider liberty a release from all law, from every constraint. The wise see in it, on the contrary, the potent Law of Laws." --Walt Whitman
"An institution that...would permit Iraq, a terrorist state that refuses to disarm, to become soon the chair of the United Nations Commission on Disarmament, and which recently elected Libya -- a terrorist state -- to chair the United Nations Commission on Human Rights of all things, seems not to be even struggling to regain credibility. That these acts of irresponsibility could happen now, at this moment in history, is breathtaking." --Sec. of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
I hate to think that someday Americans will be looking at the ruins of their cities and saying that this happened because their leaders were afraid of the word "unilateral." Thomas Sowell
"The sons of all of us will pay in the future if we of the present do not do justice in the present." --Theodore Roosevelt
"Nothing is more dangerous in wartime than to live in the temperamental atmosphere of a Gallup Poll, always feeling one's pulse and taking one's temperature." --Winston Churchill
"Well, the disarmament conference is off to a flying start. There is nothing to prevent their succeeding now but human nature." --Will Rogers
"The real threat to world stability is not too much American power. It is too little American power." --Michael Mandelbaum, Johns Hopkins University
"Government does best when it helps people help themselves. Human dignity is found not in a handout but in being able to do for one's self." --Trent Lott
"When your head is firmly in the sand, another part of your anatomy is fully exposed." --Don Feder
"What lies in our power to do, it lies in our power not to do." --Aristotle
"Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in." -- Andrew Jackson
"The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism.... It should be the highest ambition of every American to extend his views beyond himself, and to bear in mind that his conduct will not only affect himself, his country, and his immediate posterity; but that its influence may be co-extensive with the world, and stamp political happiness or misery on ages yet unborn." --George Washington
"'Tis time to fear when tyrants seem to kiss." --William Shakespeare
"Do not trust governments more than governments trust their own people."--Andrei Sakharov (Does Saddam trust his own people?)
"One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half." --Winston Churchill
"When you stop a dictator there are always risks. But there are greater risks in not stopping a dictator." --Margaret Thatcher
"The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office." --Dwight D. Eisenhower
"Success will require more hard realism and less wishful thinking." --William C. Triplett II
"One might have thought that the Cold War's conclusion would have convinced the Left that appeasement of dictators is not profitable." --Mona Charen
"To march against the war is not to give peace a chance. It is to give tyranny a chance. It is to give the Iraqi nuke a chance. It is to give the next terrorist mass murder a chance. It is to march for the furtherance of evil instead of the vanquishing of evil." --Michael Kelly
"We cannot allow the defense of American lives to be held hostage by the United Nations -- which has already given Saddam Hussein a final warning, and now wants to give him another final warning. And, if he doesn't heed that, they will threaten him with yet another warning." --Thomas Sowell
"Why then would people look to the United Nations as an instrument of peace, if instead all it is, is an instrument of putting out declarations that nobody intends to take seriously anyway?" --Ari Fleischer
"The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the Divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power." --Alexander Hamilton
Abraham, Moses, David, Samson, Alexander, Pyrrhus, Hannibal, Scipio Africanus, Julius Caesar, Napoleon, Fredrick the Great, McArthur, Eisenhower, Nelson, Washington, Lee, Jackson, Patton, Pershing these are some among the great captains of history. Ignorance of them condemns to ignorance of military history, and ignorance of military history condemns one to ignorance of all history and ignorance of all history keeps one childish, never mature and never strong. - unknown
"Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us." --Thomas Jefferson
"History keeps coming back, sometimes like a bad dinner. In case you missed the '30s, you could experience it again last week watching the Security Council at the United Nations, which begins to bear an uncanny resemblance to the late League of Nations. Listening to the calm, neutral, simultaneous translation of the Security Council's proceedings over calm, neutral, simultaneous NPR, one was struck by how exactly this attempt to disarm Iraq paralleled the world's efforts in the 1920s to make Germany disarm -- in compliance with that defeated country's obligations under the Versailles Treaty. Both regimes swore they were complying. And both were engaged in purely a paper exercise. ... After all the speechifyin' was through, I clicked off NPR and came away with the distinct impression that soon enough we'll be coming over, and we won't be back till it's over over there. If then. Because we can no longer turn our backs on the world. Because we might have to stay -- as long as necessary. We've learned a thing or two since the '30s. And even since the '90s. Unlike the French, we remember." --Paul Greenberg
"Freedom is not synonymous with an easy life.... There are many difficult things about freedom: It does not give you safety, it creates moral dilemmas for you; it requires self-discipline; it imposes great responsibilities; but such is the nature of Man and in such consists his glory and salvation." --Margaret Thatcher
"Let's start with the Europeans. There is only one group of Arabs for whom Europeans have consistently spoken out in favor of their liberation -- and that is those Arabs living under Israeli occupation, the Palestinians. Those Arabs who have been living under the tyranny of Saddam Hussein or other Arab dictators are of no concern to President Jacques Chirac of France and his fellow travelers. ... We all know what this is about: the Jewish question. 'For too many Europeans, Arabs are of no moral interest in and of themselves,' observes the Middle East analyst Stephen P. Cohen. 'They only become of interest if they are fighting Jews or being manhandled by Jews. Then their liberation becomes paramount, because calling for it is a way to stick it to the Jews. Europeans' demonstrations for a free Palestine -- and not for a free Iraq or any other Arab country -- smell too much like a politically correct form of anti-Semitism, part of a very old story.' ... The truth is, France is not interested in promoting égalité, fraternité and liberté in the Middle East. It is primarily interested today in managing American power. It is primarily interested in positioning France to become the world's next great 'Uncola,' the leader of the alternative coalition to American power." --Thomas Friedman
"... [I]t is a common observation here that our cause is the cause of all mankind, and that we are fighting for their liberty in defending our own." --Benjamin Franklin
"One may smile, and smile, and be a villain!" --William Shakespeare
"Wars do not always begin with an abrupt, cymbal-crash rupture of conditions properly characterized as peace. There can be almost seamlessly incremental transitions." --George Will
"The only argument this president needs to persuade Americans is that sacking Saddam is necessary for the security of America and the West, of civilization as we know it. All those other goals are nice, worthy even, but irrelevant to the job immediately at hand." --Wesley Pruden
"If George W. Bush really has the courage of his convictions the United States very soon will either wind up dominating the United Nations (as it should) or rendering it impotent (which would probably be even better)." --Lyn Nofziger
"As the president reminded the world last September 12, what authority -- moral or otherwise -- will the UN have left if it allows the repeated and willful violation of terms of surrender it sets following an offensive war?" --Joel Mowbray
"Inspection teams do not need more time or more personnel. All they need is what they never received -- the full cooperation of the Iraq regime." --President Bush at last week's press conference
"The exposure to George W. Bush was the only harvest of the press conference, and justified the hour." --William F. Buckley, Jr.

Here is a speech that conveys what such teams of fighting men represent.DUTY HONOR COUNTRY "…your mission remains fixed, determined, inviolable. It is to win our wars. Everything else in your professional career is but corollary to this vital dedication. All other public purposes, all other public projects, all other public needs, great or small, will find others for their accomplishment; but you are the ones who are trained to fight. Yours is the profession of arms, the will to win, the sure knowledge that in war there is no substitute for victory, that if you lose, the Nation will be destroyed, that the very obsession of your public service must be duty, honor, country." General MacArthur
Never in all history have any fighting men surpassed the gallant exploits of the Jewish Warrior. The King of the Jews, the Warrior of the Jews, the Soldier of the Jews, The Lord of Armies, all recall that the battles are the Lords and the glory of the Jewish fighting men will never be surpassed. They have been persecuted and yet in only a short time they spring up again with new courage. We fight for them, we protect them, we hide them when we must, and we hope to learn from them and be blessed by them.
Clinton County Indiana, North of Indianapolis offers complete Freedom of Religion. In considering long standing issues and current events involving the Hebrew people, residents of Clinton County give the benefit of the doubt to the Jewish individuals and organizations. Jewish organizations and Jewish individuals are a benefit to America and are welcome here. So is the King of the Jews welcome here for He The Lord Jesus Christ, is a Jew Himself and is the Jewish Head of all Christians. He came first as Promised Messiah to the Jews seeking a majority in their nation to support His platform for spiritual leadership before restoration of their nation. A myth and an evil lie holds that Jews do not accept the Christ. Yet consider this: His students, His writers of the New Testament to Christians and His Apostles were Jews. Christianity, America and Clinton County are a blessed and happy haven for the Jews whether they are racial Jews, religious Jews or Christian Jews and regardless the position they hold on their Messiah. Here a person like Peter need not fear becoming known as a student of Jesus Christ as Messiah of the Jews and Savior of all mankind. Here a person, his property, his family, and his job will not be harmed because of his being associated with Christ or because of his being Jewish. Here no politician like Pilate need cow-tow and bend to any offended citizens and he needn't fear giving blind justice and an equal justice to the proclaimed Christ as He appeals to and for the advantage of Jews and for all mankind. What a blessed haven we have here in Clinton County.

Attempts to gain Arab nation's alliances is a bad motivation to abandon friendship to Israel. To try to understand the difficulties of the nation Israel, and for equal balance to offset the normal media propaganda:http://www.factsandlogic.org click here to link to excellent research material and background info about the last sixteen years feud between Israel our trusted friend and their Arab terrorist neighbors. It's interesting that 24/7 ABC CBS NBC MSNBC, and therefore the majority of media outlets are making the Islamic Arab world out to be nice friendly happy folks everywhere and are softening us up with propaganda repeated endlessly that would hide the antagonistic desire by some Arab organizations to remove the Jews from anyplace on the earth.
