Open Letter to the Hollywood Bunch

Claim:   Charlie Daniels is the author of 'An Open Letter to the Hollywood Bunch.'

Status:   True.

Example:   [Collected on the Internet, 2003]

An Open Letter To The Hollywood Bunch

Ok letís just say for a moment you bunch of pampered, overpaid, unrealistic children had your way and the U.S.A. didnít go into Iraq.

Letís say that you really get your way and we destroy all our nuclear weapons and stick daisies in our gun barrels and sit around with some white wine and cheese and pat ourselves on the back, so proud of what weíve done for world peace.

Letís say that we cut the military budget to just enough to keep the National Guard on hand to help out with floods and fires.

Letís say that we close down our military bases all over the world and bring the troops home, increase our foreign aid and drop all the trade sanctions against everybody.

I suppose that in your fantasy world this would create a utopian world where everybody would live in peace. After all, the great monster, the United States of America, the cause of all the worldís trouble would have disbanded itís horrible military and certainly all the other countries of the world would follow suit . . .
