George W. Bush may not be the best U.S. President, but he has done a very good job with the tough situations that he has been faced with. In the beginning of his first term as President, Bush was faced with the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. This was the most deadly surprise attack on U.S. soil in U.S. history. No other President has faced such a devastating act of terrorism. After 9/11, George W. Bush initiated an operation which successfully overthrew the Taliban (a terrorist oraganization ruling Afghanistan). Later, Bush decided to go to war with Iraq and the ruthless tyrant Saddam Hussein. Hussein was known to have committed genocide on his own people because of their cultural background. A common misconception is that the Iraq War is based on oil. This is a hollow lie however. The war is a war on terrorism. The Iraq War is being fought to protect our great country and our way of life as well as other freedom-loving democracies throughout the world. Leaders like Saddam Hussein and the terrorist organizations seeking refuge in Iraq are a threat to our freedom and our way of life. Another misconception is that the troops in Iraq are suffering massive casualties and do not want to be there. The main reason for people believing this is because of the negative coverage of the war by the vastly liberal media. These media outlets never cover the stories of triumph and accomplishment by our troops.... we only hear about the deaths and injuries. The fact is though, that the war in Iraq has had the least amount of casualties of any major war in U.S. history. If you stop listening to the news anchors and listen to someone who is currently over in Iraq you will hear a completely different story. The troops in Iraq want to be there because they know how important the war on terrorism is in protecting our country and our future. They are proud to serve their country, and it only hurts them when they see the media at home portraying their job in such a pessimistic manor.
George W. Bush may not be a perfect President, but he is a great leader. The U.S. is much safer now than it was before George W. Bush was elected President.
Being a good U.S. citizen, I ask everyone who reads this to support our troops in Iraq. You do not have to agree with all of these opinions, but in a time of war strong countries stick together, they do not fight amongst themselves. Or in the words of Abraham Lincoln "A house divided against itself cannot stand".
