Ten Days of War

Thursday, 09 September 2004 12:00 AM

It is John Kerry’s presidential campaign, though, that is trying to make political capital out of the supreme sacrifices of a thousand valiant American troops who gave their lives for their country in Iraq.

Look at the statistics:

In the eyes of the Kerry campaign, it isn’t even worth mentioning that 63,000 Americans lost their lives while driving around the streets, roads and highways of America in pursuit of everyday activities.

Yet those same politicians want to run President Bush out of office because, during the same period, one sixty-third of that number gave their lives in Iraq in the pursuit of the defense of their country.

The 1,000 Americans who lost their lives in Iraq were seven-tenths of one percent of the 140,000 troops the president sent to liberate that country and defend America.

To put it in even sharper focus, consider the 1,140,192 fatalities in all of America’s previous wars:

The Kerry campaign’s hysteria over the 1,000 Iraq War fatalities is a quantifiable certification of the extent of the leftists’ bitter hatred of George W. Bush.

It is also a true measure of just how little they really do care about the 63,000 other Americans, whose highway deaths over the same period they haven’t yet figured out how to capitalize upon to advance their political agenda.

That is the dubious Massachusetts math of the most far-left member of the U.S. Senate.

Kerry’s overweening ego leads him to think that his nearly four months in Vietnam under curious circumstances qualify him to be commander in chief.

In his effrontery he would also have Americans believe that nearly four years as commander in chief under unprecedented crises disqualifies the very president he covets to replace.

Where would this nation be today if Kerry’s construct of the use of military power had been subscribed to by presidents such as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S Truman, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush?

When you enter the privacy of the voting booth on Nov. 2, you may wish to ask yourself:

If 63,000 American lives are not too many to pay for the American way of life on the highways, since when are 1,000 American lives too many to pay for this country’s protection from enemies that have vowed to destroy this nation and all its citizens?
