OYE Letters to the Editor - the first step

Let's see if we can let these publications know about Operation Yellow Elephant, a spontaneous grass-roots citizens' initiative to Support Our Troops.

Here's the proof in Letters to the Editor from all over America:


South Florida:

Bob Herbert's June 17 column, "They won't go," emphasized the inability of Army recruiters to fill their quota of enlistees. So desperate is the Army, that they have lowered academic standards. They spend their days trolling the poorest of neighborhoods for recruits.

Recruiters should be going to the Young Republican Clubs on college campuses. These young men and women supported the war, campaigned for George W. Bush and now need to step up to the plate and enlist in the military. To do less than that would be hypocritical.

Next on their list should be all the Bush households that have military age children. They also need to serve. Oh, by the way, joining the National Guard won't help this time.

Let's tell these papers how Operation Yellow Elephant is Supporting Our President!

The costs of victory
Tom O'Brien.

In his July 1 column, Victor Davis Hanson said that he thinks we should have stayed longer in Vietnam.

Well perhaps if our present-day heroes like George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh had been over there, we would have won.

Since they couldn't make it, I think 10 years and 58,000 names on a black stone wall is enough.

Hanson thinks the lesson we should learn from all of our wars is to continue fighting until we win.

All that plan requires is a bottomless treasury--more taxes--more college Republicans willing to sign up for military service and an enemy who'll stop fighting when we declare victory. Those darn Iraqi insurgents apparently did not get the memo when President Bush declared victory on the aircraft carrier several months ago.
