I'm not surprised. It's simple, true, straight forward, and basic. Especially the last line.
Dear Mr. Obama,
Having spent twelve months in the Iraq theater, I can promise you this was not a mistake. I've witnessed firsthand the many sacrifices made for the people of Iraq. Those sacrifices were not mistakes. The Iraqi people are just like us. They want a chance to live in a secure world: free from tyranny, free from terrorism, free to prosper, free to raise their children and pass on a future. Are they better off today than they were in 2002? You bet. I've seen many men sacrifice their lives for the Iraqi people. They died for a purpose, not a mistake. They died giving hope. They died promoting freedom. Do you rescue a fireman just as he's about to save a child? When you call the Iraqi war a mistake, you disrespect the service and the sacrifice of everyone who has died promoting freedom. Freedom carries with it a price. Because you do not understand or appreciate these principles, sir, I am supporting John McCain for President. He, too, made a huge sacrifice promoting freedom... because he understands the fundamental truth: freedom is always worth the price.
