Hello again from OSSA Birkman, I would like to say that I am glad that President Bush has decided that we do something in retaliation against the recent and past attacks by Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban government that is protecting him. It has surprised and upset me how only in a time of crisis, sorrow, or hatred that America realizes the need for a large, strong, and well funded military. The funding, not only for the Navy but also for the Army and Air Force, to help replace and maintain the outdated and technology deficient equipment and etc. that the military is currently burdened with, also for new and better equipment, ships, tanks, planes, etc. that we are so desperately in need of. On a more positive note I would like to say that I hope that our recent strikes against those who intend to do harm to the U.S. and its Allies will now realize that crimes against either us or our Allies will not go unpunished or unanswered. Maybe now those followers and those who are like bin Laden that there efforts to demoralize and hinder America in its goal for peace that they are useless and will do nothing more than make us stronger. All the world shall now know that America will not go done without a fight no matter the odds.
