Good job to our Armed Forces

Like the rest of America, we greeted the news that Saddam Hussein was captured with great jubilation.

It was a grand day for our Armed Forces who have fought so hard since this war started to root this evil man out.

We see this as a great example of what it means to be an American.

We are known worldwide from never backing down from a fight and that we have a collective "stick-to-it" attitude.

We agree with Pres. Bush that Saddam must face the ultimate punishment for his crimes against the U.S., the world and humankind.

This should also be a clear sign to terrorists around the world that if America draws a bead on them, that our service members will search every nook, cranny and rat hole until they are brought to justice.

One thing that America should immediately do is to inform Saddam that each time an American soldier is killed in Iraq, he will personally be charged with their murder.

Make him responsible and maybe he might realize he isn't that big of a man after all, but rather, a cowardly rat that hides under the dirt.

God bless the soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen who are still over there, in Afghanistan and in all parts

of the world here and there as they spend the holidays away from their family.

Their sacrifice was rewarded with Saddam's capture and our gratitude will always be there.
