Reference: Bush thanks the troops, Bangkok Post, November 25, 2007
In his Thanksgiving message to his country, President Bush thanked the American troops in Iraq who are killing people (Bush thanks the troops, Bangkok Post, November 25, 2007) but forgot to mention the American troops in Bangladesh who are saving people. On Thanksgiving Day of 2007 the Bangladeshi victims of Cyclone Sidr discovered the enormous military might of the USA, the humanitarian nature of the American people, and the meaning of Thanksgiving all at the same time when the US Navy and the US Marines Corp launched an incredibly efficient and effective blitzkrieg attack in Bangladesh not to kill but to save. No matter how much you hate America for the evil that they do, there are times when you have to stand up and salute them. This is one of those times. Thank you America and happy Thanksgiving.
