To be sure, there are spikes in support for the war. The left-wing elite see to that. They capitalize on the recent deaths of the Marines in Iraq - protesting the war, making speeches in Congress about armor, and using the mother of a hero to further their ends.

Do they really care about the men and women "Over There"?

Ask yourself, "Where were the protests and the speeches on Capitol Hill when we lost an entire SEAL squad and one of the best helicopter crews in the Army during combat in Afghanistan?"

Ask Dick Durbin THAT the next time you hear him spout off about our losses in Iraq.

The answer is obvious - they are using us, our friends and our families to make political hay. It's disgusting and, since I'm not afraid at offending them with this well-deserved title, un-Patriotic.

So what's really different now, in sharing the war experience, bewteen the War on Terror and Vietnam?

The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines have the same tools as the media elite and the limosine leftwing.

And we won't let them steal their honor.

Andrew, thanks. The Daily Show is my new favorite thing in the world. I just got a new computer after being without for several months, and I've been watching it the last few days on the Internet, as I also don't have a TV. Best show in the whole world.

> I've lost trust in government and media

If you don't already watch The Daily Show I think you would enjoy it. It's on Comedy Central but don't let the venue fool you. Jon Stewart's brand of political satire is as tight and sharp as I've ever watched on TV. It might also give you hope that some day the mainstream news media will move on from the fear-based reporting that seem to count as journalism today.

Andrew.
