    Iraq vet's patriotic video.

    YouTube - Dear Mr. Obama

    Saying what supporters of the war have been saying all along and those against it seem to ignore.

    (Wasn't sure where to put it so obviously movie to where it belongs but I don't really think it should be beleted)

    Nice video, and the ending speaks louder than his words!

    As a moderator, I guess I can't express how positively impressed I was with this video message since it is pure politics.

    Since it is purely political, I should delete the thread - if I just had the time to but I'm so busy right now; maybe I can get to it one day next month.

    edit:
    I'm gonna have to retract some of what I said above. It is not purely political and I think that's why QKS agreed to let it stay. Hence I will say this:

    It's also humanitarian. It discusses how the Iraq people are just like us. It talks about how they need/want freedom. It relates how a veteran views the price he paid for freedom for Iraq and America. His message helps us realize the price that has to be paid for freedom here and everywhere - as they say - freedom isn't free and this message emphasizes that.

    Very good.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    OK I don't really want to hit the delete button on it either.

    We'll leave it posted for now and you folks can watch it (or not watch it) but, either way...NO McCain/Obama comments that are just going to spark other political comments and then the thread (for sure) is going to progress toward yukiness.

    So out of respect for your fellow forum members who may not have yet watched it - try not to be the cause of the thread getting deleted.

    We all only get one vote.
    Vote however you want to vote.
    Just go and VOTE but, hush up about it here.

    Wow! Great video. Thanks for sharing.

    Ignore the political portions. People need to see this. We will delete all posts that discuss the political side of this video, and possibly be forced to close it at some point, but the video will stand. Declare me biased. I don't care....

    Thanks Bumper. Some of my best friends sacrificed all, or most, to serve our country, and this gentleman speaks very eloquently about that sacrifice. He deserves to be heard and I sincerely appreciate you giving this forum the opportunity to view it.

    IMO, if this thread does get out of hand with political commentary, I would respectfully request the out of line posts be deleted, the thread locked, and the thread be made a sticky.

    Regards,
    Kerb

    ETA: if you enjoyed that video, please take the time to watch this video and give thanks for those that are protecting our country around the world... http://g.dwgsee.com/wake/index.htm

    Thanks, guys. That video was a tear jerker and I rarely admit that. Thanks for the link.
