This one packs a firm punch

This was written by a Canadian woman, but oh how it also applies to the
U.S. , U.K. and Australia


Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister!

Written by a housewife in New Brunswick , to her local newspaper. This
is one ticked off lady.

'Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not
started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001
and have continually threatened to do so since?

Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day,
in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from the nation's capitol and in
a field in Pennsylvania ?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible,
burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be
tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting
against in a brutal insurgency.

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents
for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start
caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable
by beheading in Afghanistan .

I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking
off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed

I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan come
out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by
hiding in mosques.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blows themselves up in search
of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide

I'll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom
of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on
the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when
something happens.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing
up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:

I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not
to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank:

I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat,
and 'fed special' food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining
that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in
your heart of hearts:

I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran'
and other times 'Quran.' Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it,

I don't care!!

If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail
friends Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this
ridiculous behaviour!

If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should
you choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities
committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country!
And may I add:

'Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a
difference in the world. But, the Soldiers don't have that problem.'

I have another quote that I would like to add, AND.......I hope you
forward all this.

One last thought for the day:

Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

1. Jesus Christ

2. The Canadian Soldier.

3. The British Soldier.

4. The US Soldier, and

5. The Australian Soldier

One died for your soul, the other 4 for your freedom.

Re: This one packs a firm punch

That is all to true , I personaly feel that the media should be banned from being anywhere near a war and should only be able to report what the military feels they need to .

Its a war and dirty , unspeekable , terrible things happen in war to get the job done , our soldiers need to do things that 100% of the US civilian citizens have no buisness hearing about to get their mission accomplished and come home safe. Their is absolutly no reason for some candy ass reporter to be imbedded with our troops to get in their way and jepordize their mission , Stay in your cozy little Mannhatten loft , stroke your little fluffy dog and sip you martini and wait for Uncle Sam to give you some info to release.

Its sad to say but the majority of the US citizens have become totaly reliant on getting their information from a one sided source , I can't honestly say when the last time was that I heard about somthing positive comming out of Iraq comming from the media , these people that are now making the call on who is to lead our nation farther down the drain have been convienced though the years that they don't need to have an oppinion other than what they see on TV , these are the same "Sheeple" who are worried about known terrorist being misstreated or not fed what they want to eat or that their holy book was not handeled with respect. These people need to have felt the pain of loosing a loved one from a terrorist attack ,they need to meet American citizens , many of which are veterans , that have no home or steady food source that my only get to bath once a week , don't know if they will get killed in the night for what little they have.
I agree with the lady above , why the hell should I care about these people who have waged war on my home , it sickens me that they are allowed to live past the point of giving any usefull nowledge to our military. In my oppinion , you threaten my family ,home , loved ones or me and thats a death sentence plain and simple no matter what your "cause" or who you are.
Maybe I'm a bad person , sick even , to have the ideas on the way this situation should be handeled

Sorry for the rant , I'm a little touchy on this subject and I completly agree with the woman

Re: This one packs a firm punch

we are way to "politicaly correct" of a society to ever win any kind of war

i had a buddy telling me a story the other day about when he was in the middle east somewhere and some of his company killed one of the taliban trying to fire a rocket at their tank and ended up having to go to court because nato was present and they shot at the enemy with a gun that was to large to engage foot soldiers it was only for cover fire makes no sense

they can cut our heads off on tv and we cant even dip'em in water a few times behind closed doors

Re: This one packs a firm punch

Seems to me that this womans rant shows a tremendous amount of intolerance, ignores justice and disregards the constitution.

Isn't it tolerance, justice and our constitution that separates us from terrorists?
I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!

NO , these people waged war on us , that eliminates them from being
treated like anything other than the enemy. Thats goes for the
"pink-o's" here in the US that support them

Re: This one packs a firm punch

I'm with James (and what seems to be the majority of responders) on this one. These ******** have shot at me, blown me up on more then one occasion and killed several of my friends, it's personal with me. They have no rights and need to be destroyed with extreme prejudice. We should get them with as much force as possible with as little collateral damage as possible. Which is hard to do because they are cowards. The gloves should come off...in regards to the enemy, they shouldn't issue us gloves to begin with!
