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


    THIS ONE PACKS A FIRM PUNCH

    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
    throat.

    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
    bombs.

    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.


    YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET ALL OF THEM.

    AMEN!

    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

    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

    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?

    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

    I'm with James (and what seems to be the majority of responders) on this one. These a-holes 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!

    She hit the nail right on the head. I too agree with Bravo and JJ those people deserve no mercy, and play on the fact that it s given to them. Is the same mercy given back to us... I think not.
