(MAY) WAKE UP, PATRIOTS

The following timely note was forwarded by a friend (slightly edited by Jug):

During World War II, the Japanese developed a way to demoralize the American forces. Psychological warfare experts developed a message they felt would work.

They gave the script to their famous broadcaster, Tokyo Rose and every day she would broadcast this same message packaged in different ways, hoping it would have a negative impact on American GI's morale.

What was that demoralizing message? It had three main points:

1. Your President is lying to you.
2. This war is illegal.
3. You cannot win the war.

Does this sound familiar?

Is it because Tokyo Hillary, Tokyo Harry, Tokyo Teddy, Tokyo Nancy, et al, have picked up the same message and are broadcasting it to our troops via TokyoCNN, TokyoABC, TokyoCBS, TokyoNBC?

The only difference is that they claim to support our troops before they demoralize them (“We support the troops, but not the war” - what kind of support is that?).

Come to think of it, Tokyo Rose told the troops she was on their side, too!

MEMORIAL DAY 2006
By Jug Varner

graves.jpgMemorial Day is America's way
to honor its servants of war;
The active, reserve, civilians who serve,
And all who have gone before.

On 9-11 we became one as a nation,
after that Muslim attack.
With patriot resolve for retaliation,
We invaded Afghanistan and Iraq.

Smoke hardly had cleared from the tower debris
Before politicos started their game
Of accusing stingers and pointing fingers
Trying to establish their blame.

“It was all Bush's fault,” said these Liberal snobs,
Especially their Democrat leaders;
Who, with deftness expedia, and their liberal Media,
Quickly jumped in the fray as the seeders.

They have kept up this “cry wolf” approach to this day,
Damning Bush - seeking return to power.
Their only alternative program is “smear” -
No support to our needs at this hour.

This hour of history goes on day by day
and Bush is the Devil, they claim.
Our only hope is to wake up and see
That they never accomplish their game!

Yes, Memorial day is to honor the troops
But for some it just means “holiday” -
No wreath laying, or no saluting our flag - just bar-b-ques, picnics and play.

Wake up, you patriots, to what's going on,
Let your voices be great revelation.
Internal strife is a threat to the life
And downfall of our wonderful nation.
