Memorial Day 2013
Make NO mistake, I honor each and every one of our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. I respect their sacrifice for this nation and I hurt with every American family that has ever lost a loved one in the line of duty, but I am seriously angered by those politicians that send our troops to foreign lands to die in vain.
This is not my normal Memorial Day type post, I hope you will read it all before you *twist off* and start thinking I have lost my mind.
Since the end of WW II our troops have been sent to many foreign lands and told to fight the enemy, and they were told that their sacrifices were being made to keep America free.
Hindsight is 20/20 and I still see NO positive results from the battles of Korea, Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan.
We lost nearly 34,000 troops in Korea and are still in South Korea, with the North still being considered a viable threat.
We lost over 58,000 troops in South Vietnam and we were told that if Vietnam fell to the communists that the rest of Southeast Asia would become a communist stronghold and that communism would spread to the rest of the world and would be the downfall of the United States.
Some of that may not be as far-fetched as it sounds. Long term plans and patience by the Communists, and other enemies of this nation, may just now be coming to fruition with the regime of Barack Hussein Obama. Regardless, Vietnam fell and the world didn’t end. Vietnam is now a strong trading partner of the United States.
Our venture into Iraq was nothing more than a tantrum by a Son that desperately wanted to impress his Daddy and win his admiration. Over 4,400 American troops gave their all because of that tantrum and Iraq is still just as big a disaster as it was prior to George W. Bush ordering Americans into harms way on HIS whim.
To date, what the Libbers called *A war for oil* has yet to generate ANY monetary gain for America and has, in all fact and actuality, nearly bankrupted this nation, all the while the violence in Iraq has continued, Muslims killing Muslims.
Here is an example of bombing attacks in Iraq, ALL perpetrated since we pulled out.
_May 27, 2013: A wave of car bombings tears through mostly Shiite Muslim neighborhoods of the Baghdad area, leaving at least 66 people dead.
_May 21, 2013: Car bombing at a Sunni mosque kills at least 20 people.
_May 20, 2013: A wave of attacks, some at markets and in rush hour crowds, kills 113 people in Shiite and Sunni areas.
_May 17, 2013: Bombs rip through Sunni areas in Baghdad and surrounding areas, killing at least 76 people. MUCH MORE HERE
There is one good thing to keep in mind; NO American troops were killed in these attacks, attacks that were carried out BY Muslims AGAINST Muslims, and I believe that this points out what a WASTE of life and treasure Iraq was for America.
To date we have lost almost 1,100 troops in Afghanistan, but to what resolution?
In its inception the war in Afghanistan was exactly where we needed to be. We were attacked by al-Qaida and that was where al-Qaida was based. Afghanistan was where we needed to fight, and I was a staunch supporter of that effort, IN ITS INCEPTION.
Now, Osama bin Laden is DEAD, Afghanistan is still a lawless frontier, over-run by al-Qaida and the cash crop that keeps the *War Lords* going is opium.
Our troops, under the thumb of Barack Hussein Obama are NOT allowed to fight, not allowed to prosecute the war as it should be done. They are forced to fight with one hand tied behind their back and are constantly reminded to use all caution to not accidentally say or do anything that may offend the delicate sensitivities of the Muslims.
Our troops, being the ultimate professionals that they are, have bent over backwards in an effort to follow the most ridiculous rules of engagement that troops have ever faced!
They have made the ultimate sacrifice for God and Country in doing so.
Our troops will serve this nation and do everything possible within their powers, to protect and defend this nation from its enemies. Our troops will fight and DIE to protect us ALL.
We can’t let so much as one more troop die in vain!
Don’t let their sacrifice come from defending a people and a religious belief that wants to kill us ALL. If our troops are to be in those nations let them take the fight to the enemy and let them WIN their battles and then return home victorious, with this nation safe from those that seek to destroy us as WE keep those heroes that gave their all in our hearts and minds!
Barring that; Get our troops OUT of Muslim nations!
