Michigan Joins Operation Yellow Elephant

Letters to the Editor of the Detroit Free Press:

Sign up the Bush twins

Bush's plan to send more troops to Iraq is a great idea, and to show that he's really serious, and to get the country behind him, here is my plan: He has two lovely daughters who should look simply smashing in khaki green, and it would encourage other young people to sign up. The eligible sons, daughters and grandchildren of the House and Senate members should also enlist to really get the ball rolling.

Recruit young Republicans

President Bush should appeal to those who favor his Iraq policy -- for example, the National Rife Association folks. I'm sure a lot of them are under the Army's 42-year-old enlistment limit. Maybe one of those "Uncle Sam Needs You!" posters with a likeness of Ted Nugent as Uncle Sam would bring them to the recruitment centers.

Send the recruiters to the golf courses, brokerage houses or places young Republicans might be found. Let me see a rush to join from our 30-something young Republicans. If we are a nation at war, where is the rush to join by all those supporters of the war in Iraq?

Send in America's finest

President Bush should immediately issue a call-to-arms to patrol Baghdad for: Paul Wolfowitz, Paul Bremer, Joe Lieberman, Richard Perle, Judith Miller, Ken Adelman, Tom DeLay, George Tenet, Kate O'Beirne, Scooter Libby, Saxby Chambliss, retired Gens. Colin Powell, Richard Myers, Tommy Franks, Ambassador Michael Novak (all advocates of the "War to Prevent War"), and leading members of the Fourth Estate who were missing in action during the runup to this war.

Also include the nine U.S. senators in favor of torture, the Swift Boaters, the Heritage Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute, the Weekly Standard, Fox News and, finally, board members of America's weapons manufactures -- from the transparent Colt Industries to the hazy Carlyle Group.

With a committed force like this, our troops will be home before the first Super Bowl commercial airs.
