“No one should dare to even think about being the Commander in Chief of this country if he doesn’t believe with all his heart that our soldiers are liberators abroad and defenders of freedom at home.” Zell Miller of Georgia
The question we need to answer for the present wave of peril is quite clear: Will the next generation have the “Corps Values” former Gov. Zell Miller laid out in his book. Three of the 12 values are: Courage, discipline and loyalty. The other nine are: Neatness, punctuality, brotherhood, persistence, pride, respect, shame, responsibility and achievement. The Greatest Generation understood the meaning of each value. They were taught from birth, and on this day we specifically honor those who were serving our country on this “date which will live in infamy” 67 years ago in an idyllic place called Pearl Harbor.
Zell Miller delivers one of the most courageous and impactful speeches in recent history 1sep04 – Parts One and Two
Listing all the weapon systems that Senator Kerry tried his best to shut down sounds like an auctioneer selling off our national security but Americans need to know the facts.
The B-1 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, dropped 40 percent of the bombs in the first six months of Operation Enduring Freedom.
The B-2 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, delivered air strikes against the Taliban in Afghanistan and Hussein’s command post in Iraq.
The F-14A Tomcats, that Senator Kerry opposed, shot down Khadifi’s Libyan MIGs over the Gulf of Sidra. The modernized F-14D, that Senator Kerry opposed, delivered missile strikes against Tora Bora.
The Apache helicopter, that Senator Kerry opposed, took out those Republican Guard tanks in Kuwait in the Gulf War. The F-15 Eagles, that Senator Kerry opposed, flew cover over our Nation’s Capital and this very city after 9/11.
I could go on and on and on: against the Patriot Missile that shot down Saddam Hussein’s scud missiles over Israel; against the Aegis air-defense cruiser; against the Strategic Defense Initiative; against the Trident missile; against, against, against.
This is the man who wants to be the Commander in Chief of our U.S. Armed Forces?
U.S. forces armed with what? Spitballs?
