Dear Mr. Obama

Dear Mr. Obama,

Having spent 12 months in the Iraq theatre, I could promise you this was not a mistake.

I've witnessed first hand the many sacrifices made for the people of Iraq. Those sacrifices were not mistakes.

The Iraqi people are just like us. They want a chance to live in a secure world. Free from tyranny. Free from terrorism. Free to prosper. Free to raise their children and pass on a future.

Are they better off today than they were in 2002? You bet.

I've seen many men sacrifice their lives for the Iraqi people. They died for a purpose. Not a mistake. They died giving hope. They died promoting freedom.

Do you rescue a fireman just as he's about to save a child?

When you call the Iraqi war a mistake you disrepect the service and the sacrifice of everyone who has died promoting freedom.

Freedom carries with it a price.

Because you do not understand nor appreciate these principles, sir, I'm supporting Senator John McCain for President. He too made a huge sacrifice promoting freedom. Because he understands the fundamental truth ...

Freedom is always worth the price.

And I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free...

Now THAT is the sort of thing that should send tingles up your spine (or, if you're Chris Matthews, tingles up your leg) not that marxist BarryHO.
