Lefts campaign strategy Turn citizens against military MIKERIAGAN Mike the eldest son of President Ronald is heard on more than 200 talk radio stations national ly as part of the Radio America Those Americans who are Vietnam veterans could never understand why it was that when they came home after coura geously fighting in that war they were spat ridiculed and ostracized by their fellow We are now seeing a replay of what Americans at home were going through at the time when we had leaders in Congress and prominent people in all walks of life who spread false rumors about our soldiers and what they were doing in the blooddrenched rice paddies of They were called baby and today members of the American armed services are being targeted by the heirs of the antiVietnam left and com pared to to the brutal guards at the Soviet gulag camps and Pol Pots minions in the killing fields of This whole shoddy exercise in relentless antiAmericanism is being conducted by people who have never had the backbone to accept the painful realities of because they have lost control of the Senate and the House of Representatives and the White they have launched a mindless attack on the conduct of the war in Iraq in what they see as their only hope of regaining They have join ed the chorus of those outside the who hate and use our alleged mistreatment of the terrorist thugs in Guantanamo and elsewhere as a weapon to attack us and slander the men and women in uniform assigned to guard Their response to the decision of the voters to deny them the political power they once enjoyed and abused has been to try to turn America against the to turn America against the and to turn America against the Aided by their allies in the liberal main stream the left is doing exactly what they did back in the 1960s and when they succeeded in turning the American people against the war and the brave Americans in the military risking their lives to turn back a communist Day after the American people were

existence of the alterna tive which can tell you what the prisoners at Abu Ghraib and Guantana mo are having for about the Korans and prayer beads we give and how we arrange for them to observe their religion and point out that these terrorists are being fed better than our military in the We in the alternative media also break through the mainstream medias iron curtain to remind our fellow Americans that these prisoners are for the most part brutal killers dedicated to killing Ameri and would be at our throats if given the Neither the mainstream media nor the leftist politicians in the socialist dominat ed Democrat Party will tell you those things as they were during the Vietnam against the war in My father wrote in his book An Ameri can Life that when he was president he kept secret from Congress the fact that he was sending troops into Granada be cause he was worried that the leftists on Capitol Hill would leak the story to the media who could then spout the line that this was going to turn into another Viet nam My dad understood that if he informed Congress in advance of the it was inevitable that the story would leak and American lives would be lost as a result of tiie loss of the element of sur That danger still exists today as it did during The leftists on the Hill care more about scoring political points than they do about the security of Ameri cans in The likes of Dick Durban and Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi and their fellow members of the Marxist left in Congress have only one strategy to regain power to turn Americans against the president and
