I sure get tired of hearing and reading that the war in Iraq is an "unjustified" war etc. I wonder, how many "UN" resolutions and warnings does it take till the UN or whoever does something? Were they content to just sit back and wait for Sadam to start World War 3? Somebody had to do something! We should be concerned with where his chemical, biological and nuclear stuff went etc. Watch out for Syria and Venezuela. "Radical Terrorist" are attacking all over the globe, and we are going to need a strong dedicated president that can and will get the world to unite with us and stand up to them. I think "Sarah Palin" is the person for the job. Thank You, Jackson Bright, El Paso Texas
