Third Anniversary of the start of the Global WOT

As we stop to remember all that we've accomplished these past three years, lets also remember to pray for our soldiers, marines and sailors overseas - and their families.

Two must-read articles regarding this important anniversary:

From the American Thinker - one of the most succinct, comprehensive outlines of our reasons for doing what we're doing and how we're doing that I think I've ever read.

Prepare to celebrate an important anniversary, someting to mark with pride. Rest assured the loony left has its own colorful plans in the works.

On March 19 three years ago President Bush addressed the nation, and the world, from the Oval Office:

“My fellow citizens, at this hour, American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger. On my orders, coalition forces have begun striking selected targets of military importance to undermine Saddam Hussein’s ability to wage war. These are the opening stages of what will be a broad and concerted campaign. More than 35 countries are giving crucial support…every nation in this coalition has chosen to bear the duty and share the honor of serving in our common defense.”

Operation Iraqi Freedom had begun.

Taking the decision to go to war is always a grave one. The reasons, the casus belli, President Bush considered before acting were more than sufficient to justify that decision.

And he goes on from there to carefully and concisely wrap up all our reasons and causations for doing what we did - and will continue to do. Very much worth the read.

From Ace of Spades - more proof that we're doing the right thing. As if we needed any. The comments section of this post is particularly entertaining, if you have time to read through all 159 (at last count) of them.

Bush didn't lie.
For the last time. A comprehensive look at the WOT that even a liberal might be able to comprehend. (if only they'd read it...)
