    Tribute to the United States..........this one needs to be read

    One of my friends sent this to me today. I guess to show what kind of support is out there but to also raise the subject of the reality of realizing who your REAL friends are in a time of need.

    TRIBUTE TO THE UNITED STATES

    RE: Tribute to the United States..........this one needs to be read


    Right now alot of nations(even in the middle east) have expressed sympathy and have offered humanitarian help. Even Yasir Arafat(Honestly, I question his sincerity, but he did it) gave blood to be sent to the U.S. I think most human beings are willing to help innocent victims.

    READ IT CAREFULLY

    There was mention in another discussion thread about how AMERICA butts in on other countries. LOL, if we didn't alot of countries would not probably exist, this UNSOLICITED REPORT about the US from the CANADIAN BROADCASTER is stellar. A truly intelligent man, who seems to have a firm grip of the facts............LIBERALS TAKE NOTE!!
