Happy Pappy's Day Dad

Today's post is placed with the deepest gratitude to my father. It has been he, through his twenty plus years of service to the United States Navy that I had learned so much respect for the military, and its families. Perhaps a little more background is in order. My family is a family filled with military veterans. I myself am a fourth generation vet. Both of my brothers are combat vets, and both of my granddads are combat vets. My grandmas planted the victory gardens, done clothes drives, metal drives.... they had the stars in the windows and flags on the poles or in the windows. Simple folks from small rural towns that worked for living just to scrape by at times. This is the legacy that precedes me, thus explaining some my thoughts and opinions about life and the world today.

Another reason I have such high regard for those in service to the country is because during the years of my childhood development, I had never lived in one place longer than but a few years. Such as the life of a Navy Brat. Some of you may be able to relate to this. In some of the countries I was privilidged enough to visit such sites of pain and anguish due to destructive historic regimes. NAZIs, COMMUNISTs.... get the picture? As an impressionable young tyke and young man seeing these places I had also come upon meeting the people with their scars visible, and hidden within the depths of their minds that survived these factions of evil. I have not learned my views, or thoughts so much from the "history" thinned down and changed from the years of political correctness and reinvention in school, but from being involved with the people affected and touching the scars, tattoos, and feeling the death at such locations of obvious evil's fingerprints.

Now since you know me a bit better, onward to my post. While swiling on my morning café and enjoying my Camel (ignoring all the anti-smoking crowd) I saw a delightful post over at LGF. Once more, it seems the Lefturds have donned their tinfoil hats in rejection of all things proper and... well normal. The AP (Asshat Press) reporter Carolyn Thompson is giving us all the lurid details of the swanky and definitely slimy Cindy (the Traitor) Sheehan kissing arses and whining about the evil "war machine" of the United States Empire.

From the June17th article:
A group of American military deserters publicly embraced their new lives in Canada Saturday with the support of "peace mom" Cindy Sheehan, who said she wished the son she lost in Iraq was among them.
"I begged him not to go to Iraq," the anti-war activist said through tears at a rally in support of the former soldiers, who wore black T-shirts emblazoned with "AWOL." "And I wish he was standing up here with these people because he didn't want to go."


Ok Cindy, we all know of your pathetic story trashing your son's honorable deeds. He volunteered for the mission that killed him.


How can they be former soldiers if they are deserters? Would that just be a false wording. They are still part of the armed forces, just not fulfilling their duty that they volunteered for.


"They're trying to deport me," said Darrell Anderson of Lexington, Ky., who arrived in Canada by way of Niagara Falls in January 2005. He spent seven months in Iraq with the Army's 1st Armored Division and received a purple heart following a roadside bomb attack before deciding during a leave he would not go back.


"When I was in Iraq we were killing innocent people for oil. It was obvious they didn't want us there," said Anderson, 24, who is petitioning to remain in Canada.


Ok Darrel, you say that you committed war crimes and Canada wants to deport you. I hope You fry in the treasonous hell you deserve! You ran off on your brothers in arms and you are a disgrace to everyone that has honorably worn the colors of the United States. You know Patton had a word for your type.... YELLOW.... you are a coward, suck it up and drive on.



"They say we're traitors, we're deserters," said Marine Lance Cpl. Chris Magaoay, 20, of the Hawaiian island of Maui. "No, I'm a Marine and I stand up for what I believe in, and I believe the Constitution of the United States of America is being pushed aside as a scrap piece of paper."


Chris, You are a traitor and a deserter, this nullifies you status as being a Marine. A true Marine would not turn his/her back on his brothers. The Constitution is not being pushed aside, but rather YOU are defecating upon it.

Note: I will not use the designated rank... they are nothing more than the puss dripping from the boils of a skunk's bumm.



"I know that they miss their family and their friends that they're cut off from," the emotional Beyer said, "but I know that you Canadians have stepped up and stood behind them and I thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Go hug a tree and tell it to the spotted Frog, Owl, or whatever else pansy thing you may be trying to "save" now. By the way... how are the terrorists doing there, or do you perfer to say "freedom fighters"?


"Canadians really want these guys to stay," Jeffry House said.

"It is really unthinkable in this country," House said, "that resistors) Jeremy Hinzman or Brandon Hughey or any of the other heroic people are to be forced out of here in chains to be picked up by the American military officials."

"Resistors"??? Stop taking hits off of the bong and drink some coffee. They opted for going to a combat situation. They freely of their own will joined the United States Armed Forces. They are not resistors... those are in electrical equipment, they are DESERTERS.... needing to be shot. They are TRAITORS needing to hanged slowly so they feel the pain they have caused to othes!


*SHEEHAN*(My insertion for clarity.)"They're moral human beings who don't want to go to Iraq and kill innocent people to line the pockets of George Bush and the war machine," she said.

They are not MORAL, they have no honor as a human being. If they had, they would finish their contract. Please tell us, and back it up, where GWB is getting paid for the military action YOUR own family supports? Where are all the innocent people you claim that are being killed? Do you mean those innocents the Terrorists use as sheilds?

From the June18th article:
The gathering at a park in the town of Fort Erie, across the border from Buffalo, N.Y., was organized by peace groups on both sides of the border

About 20 former U.S. soldiers, referred to as war resistors, have applied for refugee status in Canada. Organizers estimated there may be as many as 200 soldiers in the country who have not yet sought formal protection.

Ahhh! The story is just about an exact duplicate. It had to be run two days in a row, but only with some minor variations. Since when did Enlisted Active Duty service members become "resistors" when all the time I was "in" they were always called deserters/traitors? Damn political correctness. I would also like to know which peace groups attended said function. After all the majority (if not all of them) are tied into the communist party and have world-wide tentacles strangling the life out of freedom.

You may wonder why I say they are Traitors. To be a traitor you must give aide and comfort to the enemy. Well by them PROTESTING and NOT FOLLOWING LAWFUL ORDERS (such as a redeployment) then they are giving the enemy resources to use. I now refer you to the document from Zaqawi that was confisacted after his *insert violin music* untimely demise.


1. To improve the image of the resistance in society, increase the number of supporters who are refusing occupation and show the clash of interest between society and the occupation and its collaborators. To use the media for spreading an effective and creative image of the resistance.
6. To create division and strife between American and other countries and among the elements disagreeing with it.

Is this not what the left, the protestors, the deserters etc. do? Then to top it all off, the media is their most welcome allie. After all, they insured to print the same story two days in a row for maximum effect. I just wonder what some troops on the ground think about such media?
Well luckily for you I have found a source. The Ridgefield Press is just the typical little podunk town newspaper. However, one of its residents is also a Marine stationed in Iraq kicking some terrorist AZZ! This is what he has to say:

My primary concern is the assertion that these individuals support the troops in Iraq but not our mission. It boggles my mind that this logic is actually utilized on a large scale.
Supporting the troops but not the war is like saying that you support filmmakers but not making films. One cannot claim to support an individual in a given profession but not support what the said profession entails. This is essentially a slap in the face to those in the service.
How protesting the job we are doing in Iraq while demanding our withdrawal constitutes supporting us is beyond me. Furthermore, I am particularly interested in how these people support us, specifically. I have never once received a letter from an individual who claims to “support the troops, not the war.” Not a single Marine I know has received anything that could be considered remotely supportive from any of these people or the groups they represent. We have received phone cards, hygiene supplies, food, etc. from members of state and local government, radio stations, schools, private individuals and organizations, but never once from any group claiming to “support the troops, but not the war.” I ask again: How can these groups claim to support our troops while telling us that what we are participating in is wrong? How can they support us if they are essentially saying that our blood and sacrifices have all been given in vain? How can they support us if they say that our comrades and brothers who have been wounded or killed in action have done so for a hopeless and morally questionable cause?
I reply to the questions I pose with a simple answer: They can'’t. As a matter of fact, I assert with a considerable degree of confidence that their efforts make our already difficult job even more difficult. I'll go so far as to say that their rallies and protests cost more and more servicemen their lives and limbs every day. I support my assertion with evidence gathered first hand. I see the Iraqi people every day. The protesters do not. I speak with the Iraqi people every day. The protesters do not. I don'’t sit behind a desk and do paperwork or resupply efforts in the military. I am an Infantry Marine and I walk the sewage-filled streets of this city every single day. In Fallujah, the people watch Al Jazeerah. However, they also watch CNN. A lot of them fear that the United States will soon cut and run. The people of Iraq see when our country is divided. When they see rallies to "Bring The Troops Home", they see that as a sign that we will end our efforts prematurely. Furthermore, they know that the insurgents will not end their efforts early. That leads them to the conclusion that when we leave, the insurgents will still be there. Therefore, if they help us, their lives and the lives of their loved ones will be in great jeopardy the minute we leave if we don't finish the job. Much that they see on American television leads them to believe that we intend to abandon our efforts before the new Iraqi government is capable of defending itself and its citizens.
ººº •
The actions of these afore mentioned organizations and the heavy media coverage their rallies often generate serves as fuel for the insurgency. Insurgents believe they can drive us out through the idea of "death by a thousand cuts."” The longer they persist in their efforts, the more the American public becomes disenchanted with the coalition effort. The insurgency sees this as a result. These criminals will continue to kill Iraqi civilians, Iraqi Police, Iraqi Army and coalition forces so long as they see that their efforts are alienating the American public from its military. And for those of you that aren'’t up to speed with the situation in Iraq, the insurgents attack and kill established public services (such as Iraqi police and Iraqi army) more often than they attack coalition forces. As a matter of fact, an explosive-laden insurgent blew himself up last week outside the Iraqi police station that is attached to our compound. The insurgents aren't fighting simply to drive America out of Iraq. They are fighting to destroy any semblance of the Iraqi government so that they can impose their will on its people. Publicly protesting our efforts in Iraq fuels the insurgency.

Doing it under the pretext of "supporting our troops" is disgraceful.


You are neither supporting us nor honoring us. You are doing the exact opposite.

In closing of this entry, I wish to once more extend my gratitude to my father for instilling the values he has into me. Thanks Dad!

Can you imagine how humiliating all of this must be for Cindy Sheehan's ex-husband. Their son was an honorable man and she's destroying his name. Awful.
