Right War, Right Place, Right Time

October 01, 2004

Perhaps you've seen the 9/11 widows who are for John Kerry.

You should get a copy of Wednesday's Wall Street Journal and read the opinion piece by Debra Burlingame, whose brother was the pilot of American Airlines flight #77, which crashed into the Pentagon on September 11.

Here's part of it.

Responding to critics who say President Bush is overly optimistic about the progress in the Iraq war, Burlingame says, "optimism in the face of obstacles is not living in 'fantasyland.' it's courage."

The 9/11 widows traveling with John Kerry talk about their fear of a war with no end, but there are many of us 9/11 families who fear that John Kerry would turn this crucial historic opportunity into a losing war with no hope.

We think George W. Bush got it right. We believe this is the right war, in the right place, at the right time.

We think the good guys are winning."

It's quite a column and there is much more.

I hope you'll get Wednesday's Wall Street Journal and read it.

You won't ready anything like it in too many other places as most of the mainstream media is in the tank for you-know-who.
