God Bless America, Her Veterans

And Her Troops In Harm's Way


God Bless Our Troops! God Help Our Troops!

"One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half." ~Sir Winston Churchill-British politician (1874 - 1965)

Pelosi's Cut-and-Run Bill, also knows as the "Drop Dead U.S. Troops" Bill, has sent a clear message to our armed forces, and to those of us who support our troops in harm's way.

In an Al-Jazeera newspaper in Iran dated 3/23/07, guess what was on the front page?

"Bush Vows to Veto Iraq Pullout Bill"

"Pelosi had to canvas support from skeptical Democrats to get the necessary votes. The US House of Representatives has voted to impose a September 2008 deadline for withdrawing all American combat troops from Iraq."

It is not surprising that this made the front page. That's what Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wanted to hear, he wanted to know WHEN our troops would be getting out of Iraq. Gee, I wonder why he wants to know?

Strangely enough, Ahmadinejad's navy kidnapped 15 British sailors and marines on the very same day. Bold move considering he cancelled his trip to come to the US (letting him come here is a joke in, and of itself) to speak at the United Nations (the UN being an even bigger joke) about the nukes he is building up to use against the United States and Israel.

When the first mushroom cloud hits the west coast of the US, who will Pelosi call for help? When the anti-American crowds in San Francisco and in Portland, OR, find their state uninhabitable for decades due to radiocative fallout, who will they go to for help? Will they blame Bush like they blamed him for Katrina, a NAUTRAL disaster?

I am willing to bet there will be another massive terrorist attack on US soil, shortly after our troops are yanked completely out of Iraq by an irrational female and her flock of sheep. A ficitonal character, a terrorist, on the show '24' said it best, "they are being led to their own slaugher!" He was right! Even if it was a television show, there is truth in that statement. After today's disastrous passing of a bill that puts our troops in even more harm than they already were, I see some 'leading' going on, don't you? Don't blame me!

Hey, I didn't vote those weasels into Congress. What a woman on the far end of her menopausal cycle, is doing as Speaker of the House, is beyond me. I didn't want her there.

To think they could put a completely insane woman 3rd in line for the Presidency of America, is frightening. And today's passing of the cut-and-run bill proves just how well-founded my fears are.

Pelosi and her cronies might as well grab a couple of canisters of chemical warfare from the Iranian nutjobs, and start killing Americans. This way is a slow death, just waiting to see what Iran will do when the 'deadline' for troop withdrawal out of Iraq arrives.

God Bless America! God Bless the US Troops! And God Help Us All Now!!



Iranian Navy Kidnaps 15 British Sailors and Marines


HMS Cornwall

Eight Royal Navy sailors and seven Royal Marines were seized by the Iranian Navy Friday at around 10:30 a.m. near the disputed Shatt al-Arab waterway, while searching a merchant ship. Iranian vessels surrounded them and escorted them away at gunpoint.

To further illustrate what a mistake Pelosi and Congress made yesterday by announcing a date for complete US Troops withdrawal from Iraq, yesterday 500 or so Iranian students stoodd on the shore where the soldiers were captured, and shouted “Death to Britain” and “Death to America”.

Ms. Pelosi might as well have been standing on the shore with them.

Side note: This fly-in-the-face treachery is no doubt a result of the more severe sanctions imposed on Iran today. President Ahbob saw it coming and decided to try and get himself some bargaining chips. Let's hope this situation is settled more swiftly than the good ol' boy Jimmy Carter's approach to The Iranian Hostage Crisis, November 1979 - January 1981

MARCH 25, 2007 Now word has it that Iran is treating the kidnapped British Sailors and Marines as criminals, charging them with espionage. They will, as I predicted, use them to blackmail the UN Security Council into lifting the sanctions and continue negotiating. You cannot negotiate with terrorists or madmen. Iran's government is lead by both of those elements. Wonder who will make the first move. If we're smart it will be Great Britain and the U.S.

Support Our Troops in Harm's Way!

"Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

To those that choose to protest the actions of President Bush and the US Troops:

Freedom of Speech is just one of the many rights American citizens have in this great country of ours. Our US troops protect that right every single day. There is an appropriate time and place for voicing your concerns and differences. It is especially disheartening to watch Americans protesting through the streets of our cities, especially while there are members of our Armed Forces being captured and killed by troops under the rule of a sociopath and a homicidal maniac.

To me, these protesters are starving for attention and the media is giving them just what they want. The media is scrounging for the first video of or the first interview with these people. It is in poor taste, and it is bad judgment on the part of all those who participate in these protests, whether they are marching or covering the marches. The way the protesters treated our veterans during and after the Vietnam war, was a disgrace. The protesters today are bringing back the memory of that time for me and I am not a veteran. Imagine how it must make our veterans feel to see this all over again.

I sleep under the blanket of freedom our veterans fought for back then, and are fighting for now. Therefore, just the way I said it back in the 60's, I say:

  God Bless Our Vietnam Veterans

Another message for you anti-war protesters:

"Don't Shit Where You Eat!"

"In the most critical periods of our nation's history, there have always been those fringes of our society who have sought to escape their own responsibility by finding a simple solution, an appealing slogan, or a convenient scapegoat." - John F. Kennedy

Burning the United States Flag


Courtesy of Doc's Patriotic Graphics

Some moron left a comment on a message board about having the right to burn the American Flag. He said that it was just a piece of fabric. This imbecile would do well in reading the following true story. No explanation is needed. I think this says it all!

"Honoring the American Flag"
(Condensed from a speech by Leo K. Thorsness, recipient of The Congressional Medal of Honor)

You've probably seen the bumper sticker somewhere along the road. It depicts an American Flag, accompanied by the words "These colors don't run." I'm always glad to see this, because it reminds me of an incident from my confinement in North Vietnam at the Hao Lo POW Camp, or the "Hanoi Hilton," as it became known. Then a Major in the US Air Force, I had been captured and imprisoned from 1967 to 1973. Our treatment had been frequently brutal. After three years, however, the beatings and torture became less frequent.

During the last year, we were allowed outside most days for a couple of minutes to bathe. We showered by drawing water from a concrete tank with a homemade bucket. One day as we all stood by the tank, stripped of our clothes, a young Naval pilot named Mike Christian found the remnants of a handkerchief in a gutter that ran under the prison wall. Mike managed to sneak the grimy rag into our cell and began fashioning it into a flag.

Over time we all loaned him a little soap, and he spent days cleaning the material. We helped by scrounging and stealing bits and pieces of anything he could use. At night, under his mosquito net, Mike worked on the flag. He made red and blue from ground-up roof tiles and tiny amounts of ink and painted the colors onto the cloth with watery rice glue. Using thread from his own blanket and a homemade bamboo needle, he sewed on stars.

Early in the morning a few days later, when the guards were not alert, he whispered loudly from the back of our cell, "Hey gang, look here." He proudly held up this tattered piece of cloth, waving it as if in a breeze. If you used your imagination, you could tell it was supposed to be an American flag. When he raised that smudgy fabric, we automatically stood straight and saluted, our chests puffing out, and more than a few eyes had tears.

About once a week the guards would strip us, run us outside and go through our clothing. During one of those shakedowns, they found Mike's flag. We all knew what would happen. That night they came for him.

Night interrogations were always the worst. They opened the cell door and pulled Mike out. We could hear the beginning of the torture before they even had him in the torture cell. They beat him most of the night.

About daylight they pushed what was left of him back through the cell door. He was badly broken; even his voice was gone. Within two weeks, despite the danger, Mike scrounged another piece of cloth and began another flag. The Stars and Stripes, our national symbol, was worth the sacrifice to him. Now whenever I see the flag, I think of Mike and the morning he first waved that tattered emblem of a nation. It was then, thousands of miles from home in a lonely prison cell, that he showed us what it is to be truly free.

Also read my thoughts on Michael Moore
and why I think he and Saddam would get along swell.

No More Michael Moore


Thanks to: Doc's Patriotic Graphics for this one. I love it!

I wanted to say something else about the people who want to continue to burn the flag, or have the right to burn the flag. I actually feel sorry for them. I feel bad because these people obviously do not understand what the American Flag means. They cannot comprehend what the Flag stands for. It is a shame that they cannot feel the pride that is felt to those of us who choose to proudly wave the flag, and to feel honored to live in the greatest country in the world. What a shame for this people.

Some of you may be thinking that because I am not a veteran, I don't have the right to voice my opinion on the subject, but this man certainly does:

There is something else we can do to let those protesters know of the good that our soldiers are doing over in Iraq, something you will never see in the news coverage of the war on terrorism.

Thank You to Prime Minister Tony Blair and the British Troops

When asked why he chose to join the US in the disarmament of Iraq, Prime Minister Tony Blair said:

"...because it was the right thing to do."
Press Conference, September 3, 2002

"We are the ally of the US not because they are powerful, but because we share their values."
Speech to Foreign Office Conference, January 7, 2003

"Britain has never been a nation to hide at the back."
Address to United Kingdom, March 30, 2003

"We the British are a people that stand by our friends in time of need,
trial and tragedy, and we do so without hesitation now."
Speech to Parliament, September 14, 2001

The first reason on that list was my personal favorite. So here's a message to Chirac and the other leaders who refused to help:

"To retreat now, I believe, would put at hazard all that we hold dearest, turn the United Nations back into a talking shop, stifle the first steps of progress in the Middle East; leave the Iraqi people to the mercy of events on which we would have relinquished all power to influence for the better." ~ Prime Minister Tony Blair ~ March 18, 2003

"Case Closed!"

God Bless and Thank You Tony!

My thoughts and prayers go out to the people who were attacked this morning 07/07/05, in London.
To our greatest friend and ally, Great Britain, I stand behind you, and support you - 110%!

I saw the movie, "Flags of Our Fathers", and no matter what message it is trying to convey, these two photos stand for Victory! and Resilience!

The Media and the Anti-War Protesters

While watching the movie, "Path to War" the other night, I noticed something about the media that I probably did not pay much attention to as a teenager. The movie was about LBJ's involvement in the Vietnam War. Every night on the news, they would run the names of US servicemen killed in Vietnam that day, during the war. This, of course, was more for a ratings boost than a tribute. The media has always thrived on tragic tales and knows that the public can be incited to riot over something they see on TV.

However, on the same news broadcast, they would show anti-war protesters. I think after a time, they showed more anti-war protest footage than they did tributes to the fallen men in Vietnam. I believe that this display of irresponsible news coverage was the basis for the American public's treatment of our Vietnam Veterans upon their return home. The news people were not totally to blame; we are responsible for our own actions and need to take responsibility for the way we treated the Vietnam Veterans. Nonetheless, I feel the news coverage played a role in it somewhat.

Photos of Military's Draped Coffins

A perfect example of just how insensitive and immoral our news media is, yesterday I heard the story about some kook who filed a lawsuit so that he could publish photos he took of the draped coffins of some our military who gave their lives for this man's First Amendment Right. What angered me even more was that my local news program showed the photos on TV, and then I go on to the CNN website to see the GALLERY of photos this man published.

I won't watch any other news program from now on except for Bill O'Reilly's No-Spin Zone. The media loves the war, they love the anti-war protesters, and they love the publicity they get when they outrage us with their disgusting acts of disrespect for our military and our county.

Prisoner Abuse

The news story dominating all the major news networks is the one about 'prisoner abuse'. Here are websites that tell of the 'prisoner abuse' inflicted upon troops in the Vietnam POW camps. Shame on the elite media for not thinking this was, or is now, a big story.

Visit the Hanoi Hilton

That's Not the Way it Is Anymore, Walter Cronkite!
(written before Walter passed away, but the sentiment's the same)

Walter Cronkite can get together with Dan Rather and have a party. I know it shouldn't matter what Walter says anymore. He's old, probably senile, and most likely he thinks it's still 1965, but why does the media have to repeat or reprint stupid things Walter says? Who cares what he thinks anymore, anyway? All of these liberal media types are putting our troops in 'harm's way' shooting off at the mouth about the "wrong war, wrong place, wrong time". Shut up about the war in Iraq. Talk about, or print something useful, something educational.

7/10/06 Celebrity Anti-War Phenomenon

I realized something while watching the movie Path to War again last night.

There is a phenomenon going on in Hollywood with the Celebrity Anti-War Protesters. The people who starred in movies about wars, have all lost their minds. They think they were actually in the war that was being played out in a movie they starred in. Consider this:

Alec Baldwin, who has a secret desire and fantasizes about killing the Vice President of the United States, played Bob McNamara, the Secretary of Defense during the Vietnam War. He played McNamara as a man ridden with guilt for talking Johnson into sending more and more troops into Vietnam as the years progressed. Johnson finally got rid of McNamara when he testified that he felt differently about the President sending the troops to Vietnam, even though he was all for it in the beginning and advised him to do so. Then he played a military man in Pearl Harbor who led the troops that dropped bombs on Japan in WWII.

See a pattern? I think he went goofy believing that he really was in the war. I think he is unable to separate fact from fiction.

Now think about Martin Sheen, the guy who paraded past the White House, with a bucket on his head or something, protesting the 50th anniversary of dropping the bomb on Hiroshima. I don't know what he thought he was accomplishing since it happened 50 years before, hence the anniversary, but I think he had flashbacks of Apocalypse Now. I know he suffered a heart attack during the filming of that movie, but maybe he also suffered some kind of breakdown and believed he was a Vietnam Vet.

And let's not forget his son, although with Charlie, drugs and the effects on his brain could be a factor. Charlie thought he really was in a "Platoon". Now he thinks our government slaughtered its own people on September 11th, and then accused Bush of blaming it on psychopathic suicide wackos from Afghanistan!

There is Mike Farrell as well. He not only protests wars, he campaigns for twice-convicted cop killers. I think all those years on MASH, protesting the war as B J Hunneycutt, drove him insane. He thinks America is still at war with Korea, and he believes he's still fighting that war.

I can't explain Ann Garfola, whoever she is, because I don't know a single movie she's been in, and I can't explain Susan Sarandon or Tim Robbins. Tim went to Mars and to prison and was a nut in Jacobs Ladder years ago, maybe that sprung a brain cell or two loose, but Sarandon, I can't explain. She's probably just along for the ride with her husband, Tim.

I think casting directors should screen their actors better when filming a war movie. We have a bunch of looneys in Hollywood running around thinking they're war veterans and now feel it's their duty to protest the war.

By the way, I have the Pearl Harbor videotape that I will give away to anyone who wants it. With Alec Baldwin and Ben Affleck (remember him, was dating J-lo for a while?) starring in it, and seeing as how they're both anti-war protesters and extremely vocal about 9/11, I'll never watch that again.

I feel sorry for these people. They have some kind of mental disorder that is going undiagnosed. Until now.

Pay no attention to the moonbat. He likes to Rant! I hear he was one of Kerry's speechwriters. Or click on it if you want to hear more looney-tunes from the liberal leftards!

And just when you thought it was safe, comes this remark from the loser who ran against Bush in 2004:

Senator John (married to the ketchup heiress) Kerry:

"You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

Can we expect anything else from this clown, other than stupid remarks? When he ran for president he made comments frequently that put our troops in harm's way.

Congratulations to President George W. Bush on his re-election!
God Bless America, Our President, and Our Troops!

Now with O-bum-a and his Socialists, Marxists and Communist Czars in office, it is now
"GOD HELP AMERICA, THE US TROOPS, AND OUR ALLIES! It was nice knowin' ya!

Rebuilding American Pride
A Poem by B F Muldrake

The time has come to rebuild the union of America with pride.
Together we can lay the foundation, working side by side.
We used to all agree upon one very important theme,
That together, as Americans, we made a winning team.

This land of freedom made us stand together, oh so tall
We're now a nation divided, not all for one, but "give me all".
To be 'politically correct' has become the attitude of today,
It means that now we must be careful in all we do and say.

We need to stop destroying what we once held very dear.
To have our fellow Americans to stand beside and cheer:
"We are all Americans, not one above the rest".
We can get to that place again if we try our very best.

Take pride in who and what you are, we're all in this together.
We need to once again go by what we know works much better.
Stop looking into everything we do with a fine tooth comb.
Let all of us feel proud once more to call America home.

I would like to thank Jerry Calow for sending me the following tribute to veterans:

A Tribute To Veterans
 
In Vietnam, Korea and World Wars Past
Our Men Fought Bravely so Freedom Would Last
Conditions Where Not Always Best They Could Be
Fighting a Foe You Could Not Always See:
 
   From Mountain Highs to Valley Lows
   From Jungle Drops to Desert Patrols
 
Our Sinewy Sons Were Sent Over Seas
Far From Their Families And Far From Their Dreams
They Never Wrote Letters Of Hardships Despair
Only Of Love, Yearning That One Day Soon:
 
   They Would Come Home, They Would Resume
   And Carry On With The Rest of Their Lives
 
The P.O.W.¹S Stood Steadfast
Against the Indignities And Cruelties Of War
They Could Not Have Lasted as Long as They Did
If They Had Relinquished Their Hope That Some Day:
 
   They Would Come Home, They Would Resume
   And Carry On the Rest Of Their Lives
      
Medics, Nurses, and Chaplains Alike
Did What They Needed To Bring Back Life
They Served Our Forces From Day Into Night
Not Questioning If They Would Survive:
 
   They Mended Bones And Bodies Too,
   They Soothed the Spirits of Dying Souls
 
And for Those M.I.A¹S, Who Were Left Behind
We Echo This Message Across the Seas
We Will search For as Long As It Takes
You¹re Not Forgotten And Will Always Be:
 
    In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers,
    In Our Minds For All Time
 
A Moment of Silence, a Moment of Summons
Is Their Deliverance of Body And Soul
To a Sacred Place That We All Know
Deep In the Shrines of Our Soul:
 
   In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers
   In Our Minds For All Time
 
INTERLUDE:
      GOLD STAR MOTHERS GRIEVE: ENDLESSLY,
      ENDLESSLY, ENDLESSLY.......
 
These Immortalized Soldiers Whose Bravery Abounds
They¹re Our Husbands, Fathers, and Sons
They Enlisted For the Duty at Hand
To Serve the Cause of Country and Land:
 
   They Had Honor, They Had Valor,
   They Found Glory That Change Them Forever
 
Men Standing Tall and Proud They be
A Country Behind Them in a Solemn Sea
So Let the Flags of Freedom Fly
Unfurled in Their Majesty High:
 
   In the Sun, In the Rain
   In the Winds Across This Land
 
Years of Tears Has Brought Us Here
Gathering Around to Hear This Sound
So Let the Flags of Freedom Fly
Unfurled in Their Majesty High:
 
   In the Sun, In the Rain,
   In the Winds Across This Land
    
REPEAT:
 
   In the Sun, In the Rain,
   In the Winds For All Time

The Average Military Man
courtesy of Greasy Online

He trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle. Psalm 144

The average age of the military man is 19 years. He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country. He never really cared much for work and he would rather wax his own car than wash his father's; but he has never collected unemployment either.

He's a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student, pursued some form of sport activities, drives a ten year old jalopy, and has a steady girlfriend that either broke up with him when he left, or swears to be waiting when he returns from half a world away. He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing and 155mm howizzitor. He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was at home because he is working or fighting from before dawn to well after dusk. He has trouble spelling, thus letter writing is a pain for him, but he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and reassemble it in less time in the dark. He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and use either one effectively if he must. He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional. He can march until he is told to stop or stop until he is told to march.

He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation, but he is not without spirit or individual dignity. He is self-sufficient. He has two sets of fatigues: he washes one and wears the other. He keeps his canteens full and his feet dry. He sometimes forgets to brush his teeth, but never to clean his rifle. He can cook his own meals, mend his own clothes, and fix his own hurts. If you're thirsty, he'll share his water with you; if you are hungry, his food. He'll even split his ammunition with you in the midst of battle when you run low. He has learned to use his hands like weapons and weapons like they were his hands. He can save your life - or take it, because that is his job. He will often do twice the work of a civilian, draw half the pay and still find ironic humor in it all. He has seen more suffering and death then he should have in his short lifetime.

He has stood atop mountains of dead bodies, and helped to create them. He has wept in public and in private, for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed. He feels every note of the National Anthem vibrate through his body while at rigid attention, while tempering the burning desire to 'square-away' those around him who haven't bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking. In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home, he defends their right to be disrespectful. Just as did his Father, Grandfather, and Great-grandfather, he is paying the price for our freedom. Beardless or not, he is not a boy. He is the American Fighting Man that has kept this country free for over 200 years.

He has asked nothing in return, except our friendship and understanding. Remember him, always, for he has earned our respect and admiration with his blood. And now we even have women over there in danger, doing their part in this tradition of going to War when our nation calls us to do so. As you go to bed tonight, remember this shot.. A short lull, a little shade and a picture of loved ones in their helmets.

Prayer Wheel

"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need.

Amen."

Prayer : When you read this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our ground troops in Afghanistan, and sailors on ships, and airmen in the air, and for those in Iraq.

There is nothing attached.... This can be very powerful....... Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Coastguardsman, Marine or Airman, prayer is the very best one.

Also, from the last three websites above, there are links to nostalgic websites, listing songs and television shows from the 50's and 60's. A lot of work was put into these pages, and it was a thrill to stoll donw memory lane and remember what life was like back then. I wish things were that way today.
Unfortunately, they are not.
