Written by a housewife
from New Jersey and sounds like it!
"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? Were people from all over the world,
mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown
Manhattan, across the Potomac from our 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 copy of the Koran was "desecrated"
when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet...Well,
I don't care at all.
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 possession of which is a crime in Saudi
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 Iraq come
out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by
hiding in mosques.
I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of
nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide
I'll care when the American media stops pretending that their First
Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of
the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights!
In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine roughing up an
Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this:
I don't care.
When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners who have been
humiliated in what amounts to a college-hazing incident, rest assured:
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 and -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
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 Marines don't have
that problem." -- Ronald Reagan
I have another quote that I would like to add AND.......I hope you
forward all this.
"If we ever forget that we're One Nation under God, then we will be a
nation gone under." Also by... Ronald Reagan
One last thought for the day:
In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American
sentiment and negativity, we should remember Englandís Prime Minister
Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one
of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America, he said:
"A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want
in...And how many want out."
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET BOTH OF THEM.
