Where Are All The War Protesters Now??

Where are all the war protesters that screamed bloody murder at our involvement in Iraq? 
 
Not a peep when we got involved in Libya........ complete silence now that we're wading into Syria........ absolutely SHAMELESS on their part.
 
Cindy Sheehan is still out there but she's still griping about the Bush administration. Not a peep on her blog about the news that Obama that is involving the US in another conflict.
 
A.N.S.W.E.R. is still chasing George W. Bush around and protesting against him. They have nothing to say about their guy Obama sending US forces to help out the Muslim extremists that are trying to overthrow the Syrian regime.
 
Same story with the freaks at Code Pink although they do mention the Syrian conflict in passing, they too are still ranting about the Bush administration "war crimes". 
 
All these groups were active and very vocal when a republican was president. The infiltrated media was always there with cameras rolling. Now,.......... crickets chirping and CNN is nowhere to be found on the issue of US involvement in Syria's civil war. 
 
The daily body count for Iraq and Afghanistan stopped on January 20, 2009.
 
Their silent hypocrisy shouts the message loud and clear...... 'War is only something worth protesting when a republican is president.'
 
They truly have no shame.

Memorial Day........ Remember

Please make the time this Memorial Day to remember why we celebrate it.  Take your family to the local parade.  Visit a local memorial and talk to your kids about why they should remember the sacrifices that our men and women in the armed forces have made over the years.  Tell them that America, even with all of our problems, is still the greatest nation on earth for a reason.  The freedom we enjoy is sought after by millions around the world……people die trying to come here.  The freedom we often take for granted, the freedom that others can only dream of, has been bought and paid for with the blood of men and women who answered the call to defend it.  We owe it to them to honor their memory and be thankful. 

And remember too that even today men and women are not sharing this Memorial Day with their friends and family at home.  They are not boating, having a BBQ or enjoying their child’s little league game.  Instead, they are the Airman manning a bunker on the perimeter of an air base in Afghanistan; or the Marine on patrol in that same country wary that every piece of garbage along the way might be an IED; or the Seaman isolated hundreds of feet under the ocean for months on end in a nuclear submarine; the Soldier in some remote spot in Yemen that we’re not even supposed to know about.

These are the people that are sacrificing the luxuries most of us take for granted every single day.  They have answered the call to serve something bigger than themselves.

To all of them, I say thank you.
