DON'T GET IN THE WAY OF A MOTHER AND HER SOLDIER SON.
A letter from Beverly Perlson, whose son is a Bronze Star Recipient, to the armchair 'General' Nancy Pelosi, who is micromanaging a war that she despises.From: Beverly Perlson, Mother of a Soldier Madame Speaker, It is Veteran’s Day and, as the mother of a Soldier on his 4th deployment, I honor our Veterans today with this letter to you. It is out of my profound respect for our Veterans that I speak to your treatment of our Soldiers who are serving now. When I wrote to you in May and asked that you get behind our Soldiers and support them, your approval rates were horrible. Now your approval ratings are the lowest of any Congress in the history of this country. As Speaker of the House, this should concern you, and as the Mother of a Soldier on his 4th deployment, your actions personally concern me. Your negligent disregard for the SUCCESSFUL “battlefield” reports coming from Iraq is insulting and suspicious. I find myself asking “Why isn’t Speaker Pelosi saying to the House and the President “the surge is working, the reports are coming back good, let’s get this funding bill passed because our troops NEED our support over there?!” Your constant failure to acknowledge the daily accomplishments and tremendous strides made by our brave men and women in Iraq is “odd” and wrong and worrisome, and dangerous to my Son and all those serving. The taunting of our Military by you, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, and Dick Durbin, with cutting funding and granting funding in “increments,” is NEGLIGENT! This endangers our Soldiers as well as the good Iraqis who are fighting alongside our Soldiers. They too are risking their lives and their families’ safety because they want to live without the terrorists, the maniacal butchers who relish the sadistic torture and beheadings of their victims and who rejoice upon killing 3,000 innocent Americans in one single day. Shame on you as you aid and abet the enemy by undermining and hindering our troops while they are in harm’s way. Legislators such as yourselves who choose to ‘disconnect’ themselves from direct “battlefield” reports from the Generals and Soldiers on the battleground are irresponsible and a threat to our Soldiers’ lives and their welfare. The following is a quote from Giap, General, Vietnam Military. It is telling, factual, and should be a lesson to all on the devastating results of aiding and abetting the enemy: “What we still don’t understand is why you Americans stopped the bombing of Hanoi! You had us on the ropes. If you pressed us a little harder, just for another day or two, we were ready to surrender! It was the same at the battles of TET. You defeated us! We knew it, and we thought you knew it. But we were elated to notice your media were definitely helping us. They were causing more disruption in America than we could in the battlefields. We were ready to surrender. You had won!” General Giap
