    IN OUR NAME
    STANDING UP FOR WHAT'S RIGHT
    Last year a statement headlined "Not in Our Name" denouncing military action in the War on Terror was signed by Hollywood celebrities, activists and a variety of public figures. This is our answer.

    An open letter from Charlie Sykes and Jeff Wagner to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces:

    Let there be no doubt in your minds as you embark on this mission that you carry the hopes, the prayers, and the gratitude of your country with you.

    Every generation learns anew that freedom carries a steep price. You are paying that price with your courage and your commitment, no less than those who fought to liberate Europe, to defend freedom in Korea and Vietnam, and to combat aggression in Kuwait a decade ago.

    As our fathers and grandfathers fought against and defeated Nazism, fascism, and communism, our generation must confront terrorism. You have answered the call.

    We know that you neither wanted this war nor fired the first shot. The war against America began on September 11, 2001, with the murder of 3,000 Americans. You fight in their name.

    You fight in the name of our children and our children's children who will not have to face a world dominated by terror.

    And you fight in the name of each and every one of us who sign below.

    We know that all war is brutal, ugly, and dangerous. But we also know that the price of inaction is even worse. We have learned the lessons of history - that the fruit of appeasement is war on an even more brutal scale.

    You fight so that the world will not have to face the nightmare of a tyrant like Saddam Hussein armed with chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons which he can use to threaten, intimidate, and murder. You fight today so that others will not have to fight even more savage battles in the future.

    We know that you have seen the antiwar protests around the world and in our own country. But know this: your country is behind you.

    You are our sons, our daughters, our brothers and sisters; our wives and husbands. You are the best this country has to offer.

    In the difficult hours ahead, as President Bush said, "the success of our cause will depend on you. Your training has prepared you. Your honor will guide you. You believe in America, and America believes in you."

    You fight IN OUR NAME.
