It’s Thanksgiving in the US, and it’s appropriate we give special thanks for the efforts of our men and women overseas from Afghanistan to Iraq to Kosovo and beyond. It is because of their efforts that 50 million people now have the chance to be free and terrorists are cowering in fear. It has been over three years since September 11, and this country has not been attacked again. That in itself is something to be infinitely thankful for.
Across the globe, freedom is on the march. The Taliban is no longer in power, Saddam Hussein is in jail, and his thuggish sons are in Hell. Sheik Yassin met his end with an Israeli missile, and Yasser Arafat died as his ghoulish wife and advisors struggled to divide his fortune before he had even passed away. Kim Jung Il’s pictures have mysteriously disappeared across North Korea and the North Koreans are scrambling to resume multinational talks. Our forces are getting closer and closer to Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi and have taken away the safe haven of Fallujah from the murderers in Iraq.
We have much to be thankful for this year.
