T. Roosevelt, Tokyo Rose * Peaceniks"

In 1915 the USA was in the midst of a debate as to its role in opposing the aggressive warfare of the Empires of Germany, Turkey and Austria-Hungary. On August 25, 1915 ex-President Theodore Roosevelt appeared (In full "Rough Rider" dress) before a group of college students after their military exercises with US Army troops and complemented those students for "fulfilling the prime duty of free men" who were, as he continued, "...unlike those professional pacifists, poltroons and college sissies who organize peace-at-any-price societies."

There appears to be a great difference between Teddy Roosevelt and Teddy Kennedy---That difference is in the personal courage of Mr. Roosevelt on military duty in Cuba and giving a Milwaukee speech after being shot AND as opposed to "Fat Boy" who, unlike his older brothers, avoided military duty, left a young woman to drown and is in the process of stabbing our present troops in the back (With the support of too many of his Party) while they fight terrorism.

It appears that Mr. Roosevelt also had to contend with the white flag waivers of his day as Mr. Bush and our troops do today.


She had the best music on her station and most people just laughed.

Tokyo Rose During World War II -- the Japanese developed a way to
demoralize the American forces. Psychological warfare experts developed a
message they felt would work.

They gave the script to their famous broadcaster "Tokyo Rose" and every
day she would broadcast this same message packaged in different ways,
hoping it would have a negative impact on American GI's morale.

What was that demoralizing message? It had three main points:

1. Your President is lying to you.
2. This war is illegal.
3. You cannot win the war.

Does this sound familiar?

Is it because Tokyo Hillary, Tokyo Harry, Tokyo John, Tokyo Teddy, Tokyo
Nancy, etc. have picked up the same message and are broadcasting it on
Tokyo CNN, Tokyo ABC, Tokyo CBS, Tokyo NBC, etc., to our troops?

The only difference is that they claim to support our troops before they
demoralize them.

Come to think of it, Tokyo Rose told the troops she was on their side,

Come to think of it, "Tokyo Rose" was later found guilty of TREASON!
Some of the above-named imitators might consider that fate AND the great anger felt by our troops in the field and those of us who support them.
