From Tiger Woods website:

I have great respect for the men and women fighting overseas to protect our way of life in Iraq and other parts of the world. As the son of an Army officer, I understand the strength, courage and discipline required to successfully carry out their missions in hostile environments and feel tremendous pride they are representing us.

Obviously, no one likes war. Our Congress and President tried hard to avoid the use of force, but ultimately decided it was the best course of action. I like the assertiveness shown by President Bush and think we owe it to our political and military leaders, along with our brave soldiers to be as supportive as possible during these difficult and trying times. I just wanted to take this opportunity to let our forces know that I am thinking about you and wishing you and your families the best.

100% class. And let’s not forget Wayne Greztky:

“All I can say is the president of the United States is a great leader, I happen to think he’s a wonderful man and if he believes what he’s doing is right I back him 100 per cent,” said Gretzky, in Calgary for a news conference for Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities. “If the president decides to go to war he must know more than we know, or we hear about. He must have good reason to go and we have to back that.” […]

“A lot of people in the world don’t have the answers but we’ve got to believe in the president of the United States and as I said, I happen to think he’s a great leader. God bless him and I hope that everybody gets home safe.” […]

“I guess we get it more in the United States because actors and singers – they all think they know politics. I’m tired of watching people who are not in politics give their opinions. Quite frankly that’s what we have governments for and that’s why we elect governments.” [“The Great One wades into discussion of U.S.-Iraq war, praises Bush”, Canadian Press]

 Gretzky also made another comment:

“We shouldn’t be worrying about what entertainers or athletes or Wayne Gretzky or Don Cherry says (about the war),” he mumbled into the mikes, looking baffled and not a little peeved. “It’s immaterial. We’re not presidents or prime ministers. We’re entertainers and athletes.” [Edmonton News, “Asking celebrities about war is silly”, March 26, 2003]

Michael Moore and the the Dixie Chicks take note.
