The Words of a Soldier on the Ground in Iraq

 

    A letter to the editor was sent along to me by one of our long time readers (and quite often the resource for information that is passed along to all of you).  This letter shows just how out of touch with reality the cowards that are occupying our government truly are.  To dare the enemy to attack is stupidity and ignorance of the highest sort and, in and of itself, more than enough grounds for impeaching the little moron and flushing the other cowards out of our White House and beyond.  Not one of them has the right to put any real human being's life in additional danger and to do so when they've sent them to war on the back of lie after lie only shows that they should run from Washington with their tails between their legs like the rabid dogs they are.

    If the problem of where the previous President's pee pee was and when is enough for the Nazis to go all foamy at the mouth and demand impeachment, then murdering our children in the sick pursuit of wealth and oil must be enough to impeach the moron and send him to one of Texas's filthiest prisons for life.

    That said, allow me to to just let the story unfold through the words of two real Americans.

   

Letter to the Editor to the Tennessean.com news: A soldiers Father:

"My son is in the U.S. Army and currently stationed in Baghdad. I hear from him every three or four days. He is like most of the young men and women who went to fight over there inasmuch as he was proud to go and achieve what President Bush said was necessary. I have seen his attitude take a U-turn during the last month. At first he was saying: "I wonder why we are not doing this or that to help make life better for our soldiers?" Then he started to wonder why we were not doing more to help the Iraqi people who are suffering under terrible conditions. Not enough water or food, no electricity most of the time, a terrible shortage of medical supplies and medical staff, basically they are living like animals. Then he started to worry about the safety of our troops in the area. He says they are sitting ducks and easy targets for Iraqi people bent upon gaining revenge for slain family members and by those who hold the U.S. responsible for the terrible conditions they find themselves in. Yesterday he had a different message altogether."

"Get us out of here now! There is nothing we can do to pacify the Iraqi people except get out of their country and allow them to restore order in whatever way THEY wish."

And, allow me to give you his remarks when he was informed of President Bush's brash remarks saying "Bring them on." He said:

"Myself and every last man in my unit are deeply offended that our President would make such a statement inviting us to be attacked. President Bush has lost the respect of every soldier I have spoken to because of his speaking those irresponsible words. Those words spread like wild-fire among the troops. We are here because he ordered us to be here and now for him to make such a ridiculous statement inviting violence towards us causes us to lose respect for him and his judgment. We are learning that we never should have come here in the first place. Believe me Dad, there is a completely different attitude now. The fact that the President gave rich people a tax cut and didn't do anything for military families is hurtful. Where there was once pride and satisfaction in defeating an enemy there is now regret and shame. God Bless America.

Your loving Son, Donny
 

    Folks, this young soldier's words echo exactly the sentiments of tens if not hundreds of millions of Americans.  This man is precisely why I will always proclaim that I proudly and completely support the men and women in our military but will do everything one man possibly can do to remove the cowardly little moron and his thugs from our government.  Never should our brave troops be put into danger in exchange for more wealth for the wealthy and more burdens for the poorest and the families of that same military.  That is the truest sign of the evil and immorality that infects our nation today.

    Read this to your friends and send it to your enemies.  Everyone must understand the insanity of this regime and danger it places all of us in every day. 

    Bush claimed that he would have to have the rug in the Oval Office cleaned after Clinton's little blow job but I maintain that it is America's responsibility to completely fumigate the entire White House and all Cabinet level buildings in 2004.  Anything less will give succor to the enemies of actual human beings everywhere.
