three years ago Japanese planes swept over Pearl Harbor dropping

for the first free election in the nation's history.

Constitution was put into effect. The Constitution provided
freedom for the Japanese people and the end to a centuries of

and pillaging the nations, Americans provide the people with
the wisdom and skills to rule themselves in a democracy, and
hope they don't screw it up.
do it over and over and over. Tens of thousands of American
lives have been given for the rights of others to live freely,
and despite all the political criticism of the world that America
is an "imperialistic" nation seeking to impose its
beliefs on others, it sustains the fundamental mission of returning
the rights of self-government to the people of all nations.
nations "mouth" this principle, few aggressively support
it with the lives of their people. The presence of America in
Iraq is not that different from America's presence in France,
Germany, Italy or any nation in Europe during World War I or
any different from the thousands of Americans who died in the
Korean War to free South Korea from the grip of communism. Or,
the failed attempt to protect the freedom of the South Vietnamese.
represents a historic moment in American history, but it is
overshadowed by much of the clamor today over the role of America
in the world of Terror Fighting.
critics deny the attack on Nine Eleven provides a sanction
for the U.S. to battle Terrorism in Afghanistan or Iraq
disagree that Japan's attack on the U.S. military on December
7, 1941 was the spark justifying the war against Japan. But
countless numbers of critics deny that the attack on the World
Trade Center, the Pentagon and the thwarted attempt to blow
up the White House on Nine Eleven provide a sanction for the
U.S. to wipe out the heart of Terrorism in Afghanistan or Iraq.
some irony in all this. Terrorism today is not about a few people
blowing up things, but rather a state of belief that a few people
can threaten and oppress thousands and millions.
Hussein served as the Hitler of the Middle East, a man who vowed
to impose his power of oppression and tyranny over all who were
within his grasp. He killed thousands of his own people with
lethal chemicals when they opposed him, and bandited billions
of his people's funds in the "oil-for-food" program.
Billions of the Iraqi people's
funds were bandited

America went after him to stop the danger of his expanding threats,
the world roared "foul." Nations that America freed
from the same tyranny and oppression that Saddam Hussein issued
upon his people turned their backs on America.
is undaunted by its critics. It continues to be the singular
nation standing up to the threats of nations such as North Korea
and Iran--countries that would, unless checked, expand their
ability to dominate and conquer any and all within the sight
of their nation's sniper scopes.
So on this
day, December 7, 2004, America's reaction to tyranny and oppression
hasn't changed much in 63 years. We still stand up and fight
the Bully Terrorist, even when the sidelines of nations that
we once supported and freed turn their backs on us and claim
we are the "tyranny and oppression."

It is hard
to make such labels stick when Afghanistan elects a president
in a popular vote, and when Iraq is about to effect its first
free election in a new democratic state.
