Did You Know?

WHY DON'T WE KNOW?
BECAUSE...


OUR MEDIA (CNN, NBC, etc.) WOULDN'T TELL US!

Tragically, the lack of accentuating the positive in Iraq serves two purposes:

It is intended to undermine the world's perception of the United States
thus minimizing consequent support,
and it is intended to discourage American citizens .

---- The facts below are verifiable on the Department of Defense web site..

...Pass it on!

Oh and a big thanks to our Service men and women!!!
