Happy Memorial Day!
In observance of the Federal holiday, there was no INSIDE SCOOP today.
To all those in the military who fought in any of our nation’s wars or preserve the peace at home or abroad, we salute your bravery and your courage. Whether the wars you fought in were just or unjust, we value your service. In the future, may we have fewer wars.
May we also one day have a Commander in Chief and military officers who recognize that the greatness of America is that we can be humane even in wartime. May we once again be saluted as a “light unto the nations,” rather than seen as a force for oppression.
And may our men and women in Iraq return home as soon as possible. Too many have already died and been wounded and too many civilians have been killed for a war that the President still cannot provide a coherent reason to justify. There are some alive today that will be dead by next Memorial Day because of the failures of our civilian leadership. Bring them home now!
