In Rush We Trust
CALLER: Good morning, Rush. Good morning, America. Hubba hubba from an old sergeant in his 21st year of service in the 101st Airborne, home on leave.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: My pleasure. A perspective in regards to the anti-war activists -- and Mrs. Sheehan, and she's in my prayers -- is we fight for the freedom of speech and whatnot, and the morale amongst our troops is extremely high. In Afghanistan, we've been there for four years and it's gone so well. It's not in the media much. It's kind of like one of the forgotten battles, but the morale amongst us is very high -- and, like, I put things in perspective, in regards to the caller, Jared, as far as troops lost in the last four years, on 9/11 in 15 minutes we lost 3,000 innocent Americans and a little under 400 firefighters. So relatively speaking, in five years of frontline combat, we've sent a lot more terrorists to Allah and 72 virgins.
RUSH: You know, we never hear about that. We never get enemy casualty numbers, and that is a fabulous point. Joe, God bless you, and American people listening to this program love hearing you say what you said. Thank you so much for waiting and appearing on the program today.
