: Country Legend Charlie Daniels Responds To Those Against War
: Many Hollywood stars are coming out against war with Iraq. The most
: notable of these stars were Martin Sheen, Mike Farrell, George Clooney,
: and more. Country music legend Charlie Daniels took note of this, and
: issued his own "open letter to the Hollywood Bunch." The following is
: Charlie's response to those opposed to war in Iraq:
: "Ok let's just say for a moment you bunch of pampered, overpaid,
: unrealistic children had your way and the U.S.A. didn't go into Iraq.
: Let's say that you really get your way and we destroy all our
: nuclear weapons and stick daisies in our gun barrels and sit around with
: some white wine and cheese and pat ourselves on the back, so proud of
: what we've done for world peace.
: Let's say that we cut the military budget to just enough to keep
: the National Guard on hand to help out with floods and fires.
: Let's say that we close down our military bases all over the
: world and bring the troops home, increase our foreign aid and drop all
: the trade sanctions against everybody.
: I suppose that in your fantasy world this would create a utopian
: world where everybody would live in peace. After all, the great monster,
: the United States of America, the cause of all the world's trouble would
: have disbanded it's horrible military and certainly all the other
: countries of the world would follow suit.
: After all, they only arm themselves to defend their countries
: from the mean old U.S.A.
: Why you bunch of pitiful, hypocritical, idiotic, spoiled
: mugwumps. Get your head out of the sand and smell the Trade Towers
: burning. Do you think that a trip to Iraq by Sean Penn did anything but
: encourage a wanton murderer to think that the people of the U.S.A.
: didn't have the nerve or the guts to fight him?
: Barbra Streisand's fanatical and hateful rankings about George
: Bush makes about as much sense as Michael Jackson hanging a baby over a
: You people need to get out of Hollywood once in a while and get
: out into the real world. You'd be surprised at the hostility you would
: find out here. Stop in at a truck stop and tell an overworked,
: long-distance truck driver that you don't think Saddam Hussein is doing
: anything wrong.
: Tell a farmer with a couple of sons in the military that you
: think the United States has no right to defend itself.
: Go down to Baxley, Georgia and hold an anti-war rally and see
: what the folks down there think about you.
: You people are some of the most disgusting examples of a waste
: of protoplasm I've ever had the displeasure to hear about.
: Sean Penn, you're a traitor to the United States of America. You
: gave aid and comfort to the enemy. How many American lives will your
: little, "fact finding trip" to Iraq cost? You encouraged Saddam to think
: that we didn't have the stomach for war.
: You people protect one of the most evil men on the face of this
: earth and won't lift a finger to save the life of an unborn baby.
: Freedom of choice you say?
: Well I'm going to exercise some freedom of choice of my own. If
: I see any of your names on a marquee, I'm going to boycott the movie. I
: will completely stop going to movies if I have to. In most cases it
: certainly wouldn't be much of a loss.
: You scoff at our military who's boots you're not even worthy to
: shine. They go to battle and risk their lives so ingrates like you can
: live in luxury. The day of reckoning is coming when you will be faced
: with the undeniable truth that the war against Saddam Hussein is the war
: on terrorism.
: America is in imminent danger. You're either for her or against
: her. There is no middle ground.
: I think we all know where you stand.
: What do you think?
: God Bless America!
: Charlie Daniels"
