Our mission is simpleto engage and change public sentiment to achieve victory in the war on terror. We will accomplish this by raising the soldier’s voice in the national debate on this war and provide accurate information from those that have had the most at stakethe soldier. Ours is a voice of experience, not academics or theory or postulation. We deserve to be listened to, not pandered to or pitied.
Without the commitment of the American people, our use of military power will falter in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our other instruments of national power, such as diplomatic or economic or information, will scarcely gain a foothold without solid commitment. Real victory will come when, as at times past, Americans hold to their ideals, rally as a nation, face the dangers threatening our way of life, and stand firm until victory is achieved. When our enemies see this commitment, they will lose their initiative and begin their march to defeat. We are the United States of America. We should never apologize for being who we are.
We believe there is an untapped reservoir of patriotism and American sentiment that is being attacked even more severely than our soldiers on the battlefield. This reservoir can be pumped like vital fluids into a wounded but still strong and healthy body that will recover from shock and begin the long march to victory. Our soldiers are watching and waiting. Will our nation embolden us or abandon us? Your voice makes a difference. Your voice added to your neighbor’s makes a dialogue worth noting. Your neighborhood and community voice can create a momentum that our national leaders cannot ignore. No politician is fool enough to ignore the sentiment of the people.
It is not our nation’s president or even our government’s responsibility to defend the United States. It is the responsibility of the people to defend our Republic. Even if you are not a veteran, you can become a veteran for victory simply by challenging the notions of defeat and demoralization infecting the morale of our nation. Join us in this very important battle. We will help arm you as accurately as possible through media engagements and articles. We are also available to come your state to help speak to and rally Americans to commitment and victory. And while the struggle at times may appear difficult and costly, it is more humane in the long runand much less costly in terms of human life and national treasureto achieve victory than it is to suffer the long-term consequences of defeat.
