'Support our military'

I just had to respond after reading John Rankin's letter March 30. I agree with him 100% that we must support our "American" troops no matter where they are stationed. So without question we should also support the reason they are in Iraq.

The Democrats want a timetable set for the troops to be withdrawn from the Middle East. They harp about the war in Iraq, but what about the battle we have going on in Afghanistan? I believe that war was started by former President Clinton. Does that make it OK?

We will either fight the terrorists in their front yards or in our front yard. Freedom is not free and there is always a price to be paid for our freedom. Our "liberal" senators and congressmen need to realize that.

Let's always support our military. They are the ones who keep us free.
