Well, thanks to Jake Fuller, for his Dec. 12 cartoon.

I remember when the war was about to start and President Bush asked for help with additional troops and support, he said "anyone that does not help with the removal of Saddam will not be around for the rebuilding of the country." What part of "not" does France, Germany and Russia not understand?

Did those countries think that President Bush is not a man of his word? We all know from his past actions (after giving Saddam many chances to come clean) that he is a man of his word. As for Canada, they did help and he may want to look at that situation again.

Maybe the best and fairest thing to do would be to allow a dollar amount in contracts to be tied with the percentage of help the countries did give (i.e. if you give 5 percent of your troops you can get 5 percent of the contracts to bid on and etc).

We all know President Bush is a man of his word. That's why we elected him as president and will elect him again. We should all learn from his example.
