    From another diary, I got the link.

    Here is what I wrote:

    I was appalled by your organization's recent declaration of war against anti-war protestors.  I believe that the vast majority of those protesting the current conflict learned from the excesses of the Vietnam protests and express nothing but support for our fighting forces, whom most believe were sent to Iraq unnecessarily.  I leave you with a few quotes for your contemplation and consideration.

    "You can support the troops but not the president."
    --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

    "Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life?"
    --Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/6/99

    "Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is."
    --Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)

    "To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

    When a whole nation is roaring Patriotism at the top of its voice, I am fain to explore the cleanness of its hands and the purity of its heart. - Emerson
