DeJoy’s Super Hard But Exciting Morning Challenge : Decode the Message (first one wins).
In this code system, each letter of the alphabet and each of the numbers from 1 to 9 appears in the matrix of the grid. Each letter in the grid is replaced by two letters in the coded message. The first letter in the message is from the vertical axis of the grid, and the second letter is from its horizontal axis. For example, if "DG" were the first two letters to decipher in a cryptogram, you would find the letter "D" on the vertical axis and the letter "G" on the horizontal axis. Trace them across the grid to their intersection at the letter "A" in the plaintext.

Reasons for US Involvement
Simplification - reduces a complex situation to a clear-cut choice involving good and evil.The plain folks/Bandwagon - Try to convince the public that views reflect those of the common person and that they are also working for the benefit of the common person. “Everyone’s doing it….”Name Calling - The propaganda attempts to arouse prejudice among the public by labeling the target something that the public dislikes. Jokes and other images that mock.The "lesser of two evils" technique tries to convince us of an idea or proposal by presenting it as the least offensive option. This technique is often implemented during wartime to convince people of the need for sacrifices or to justify difficult decisions.Slippery Slope – Appeals to the idea that by letting one thing happen it will open the door for even worse things in the future.Argument by repetition – mr.dejoy is awesome, mr.dejoy is awesome
In Flanders Fields: John McCrae
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
