    Just Imagine

    The take the press would have today on Iwo Jima. Roosevelt and Truman would have caught hell. The US lost more men on that Island in 35 Days then we lost in Iraq in 2 plus years. No wonder we are considered gutless in the Middle East!

    Same thing with the D-Day Invasion. I can just see the CNN footage of dead Americans strewn all over the beaches in France.

    Yup! If the media back then was like the traitors they are today, we'd all be speaking German and world would be mostly Caucasian!
