First, let’s start with President Reagan’s speech about D-Day on the 40th Anniversary
Here is the visual provided by the Army
It was one of the bloodiest days of WWII with the Germans cutting down our soldiers from pill boxes as they hit the beach, many seasick. The sea was red with blood and it took days to clean up the beaches, but this was the beginning of the march to Berlin. It was the “surge” that won the war.
As I’ve commented before, you do not negotiate the end of a war, nor the exit strategy. You win and gain surrender, then negotiate the terms of surrender. Pulling out just lets the enemy know how long they have to wait, then where to re-group. Today’s enemy’s, terrorist Muslims hate the US and the West mostly because of the liberal values that are against their beliefs. I especially blame Hollywood, MTV, College professors and the hippies of the 60’s for this.
D-Day was one of our greatest and most terrible moments in history. I salute those who showed bravery and fought for the freedom we have today.
