To all who shall see these presents, greeting: This is to certify that the people of the United States of America has on this day awarded the: The Neville Chamberlain Service Award for outstanding appeasement and for providing exceptional aid and comfort to the enemy ... Drum roll ... to Senators Harry Reid, Carl Levin, and all the Senators who support S. 470; A Bill to Express the Sense of Congress on Iraq (http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c110:S.470), Representatives Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha and all the Representatives that support the House Concurrent Resolution (H. Con.Res. 63) disapproving of the decision of the President announced on Jan. 10, 2007, to deploy more than 20,000 additional United States combat troops to Iraq. (http://www.house.gov/daily/hpg.htm). Approximately 3,444 men and women have given their last full measure during the war on terror (number does not include those lost on 9/11, USS Cole, Kohbar Towers, The embassy bombings in Africa, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, San Salvador, El Salvador and the Marine Barracks in Beirut etc.). Instead of trying to embarrass the President these politicians need to remember the sacrifices of our heroes. It’s their sacrifices that enable them to exercise their first amendment right to “free” speech. Doing what our heroes are doing now is a matter of life and death; why are the politicians making it more difficult for them and easier for the terrorists? These same politicians will be the first to exercise their constitutional right to selective memory by criticizing the military and the President when we are attacked again. Their actions will bring great distain upon themselves and the United States of America. God Bless America.

The cost of “constitutional rights”: Fields of white crosses and Star of David markers!
