Ah the everlasting words of a great American and hero to millions. The sentiments of the Great Davy Crockett ring more true today than they ever did in 1836.
I have heard the pundits, I have heard the so-called experts, what I haven’t heard is the voice of the “normal joe” and that voice says to hell with you all, I’m going (back) to Texas.
DB you seem a little distraught. What gives man?
Hey you know what, I’m glad that you asked. What is my deal? The beef as it were. I have heard the pundits and I am sick from the toxins they spew. Of course this is about the happenings, the goings on in the wonderful Mid East. Those of you who have had more than your fair share of Mid East conflict then I suggest that you just leave me your comments of agreement and wander on to another site.
I am sick to death about how America isn’t the perennial power house that it once claimed to be. I have had it up to my eye balls with those who would compare our endeavours to that of the Russians with regards to Afghanistan. I’m on my death bed with those who say that Iraq is more than another Vietnam- it is the nail in the coffin of the once great civilization known the world over as AMERICA.
This is what I know- as a military man myself it would not be prudent nor dare I say beneficial to the country for me, myself, and I to try and write a bill that would potentially effect millions of people. It is common sense, I am neither a politician(which doesn’t mean much educationally) or a lawyer (which means less when you consider the clientele). But, what I am is a normal- yes I know some say above normal, human being with at least some amount of common sense. That being said; How freaking much common sense does it take to let the people who’s job it is to fight, fight? I mean would you go to the mechanic with a car problem and tell him how to fix the car? The military is the same way. Think of us as a mechanic, move back away from the car, as a matter of fact just leave the shop-we’ll call you when the job is done.
I hear about how even the Great Alexander had problems in the region known as Afghanistan, not to mention the mighty Russians. How the US forces there made a mistake about not getting in and getting out. How the US is inept for staying in a region such as Iraq without having a plan to deal with not only the insurgents but also neighboring Iran.
You know what? Screw all the wanna be comfy couch side line generals. All of them. From congressional members to cable news generals. How hard is it to prosecute a conflict when you have the following;
Political Correctness police up your ass saying that you must treat whatever prisoners you hold better than the criminals that you have in your own country, or for that matter, better than the people in your own country.
You must make sure that before you move any of your forces around that it is approved by a bunch of suits sitting behind a desk. Hey just remember that MacArthur wanted to drive not only the Russians out of Germany after WWII but also the Chinese out of Korea- he was fired. Can’t have logical thinking in government can we?
You must fix anything that you blow up, AND anything else that needs fixing whether you blew it up or not.
You must let the media dictate to you how you must act so that you are perceived as less than you really are. While they rail on you back home with outlandish claims of ineptitude.
You are forced to drag out the battle (war) for sake of appearing sympathetic to those you are fighting who may appear weaker than you. God forbid we actually are stronger than anyone, can’t have an opposing force with low self esteem.
I am going on a tirade now so let me some this up. Are you on the battlefield? This question is not only for the congress or the politicians, but for the general populous as well. If not, how about you do me the fine courtesy of shutting the hell up. You don’t know what it is like, you don’t know what is going on……But DB we saw on the news…so we do know whats going on. Oh give me a freaking break! You saw on the news what people wanted you to see on the news. Tell me has it been reported on the news that in Iraq Iraqi’s control over 87% of everything and rising everyday! Did you hear that on the news? No? Then shut up cause you know jack!
Did you know that all of this crap would be over if the left, and yes I’m talking about all you crazy communist Democrats, would have just let the military do its damn job. Oh but no… can’t have that can we? Someone always has to look like they are relevant. Can you guess whats going through my mind right now? DEMOCRATS YOU ARE NOT RELEVANT TO THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF THIS COUNTRY. DEMOCRATS YOU WEAKEN A COUNTRY WITH YOUR STUPID IDEALS ON HOW YOU THINK A WAR SHOULD BE FOUGHT!!! THIS IS NOT PRETEND CLASSROOM SCENARIO, THIS IS REAL, PEOPLES LIVES ARE IN THE BALANCE, AND YOU ARE KILLING THEM.
Iraq and Afghanistan would both be over and done with had we (the US) not had to worry about perception, both in the US and the world. Get in, topple who ever, and get the hell out. Done, period, put a fork in it and serve it up. But no- we had to do this, and do that….can’t go out and fight on Saturday because it is their religious day. Can’t shoot into a mosque even though they are shooting from it because it will seem as though we are in a holy war with Muslims. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS KILLS. You have seen the “This is your brain, this is your brain on drugs.” Well this is you country’s military strong, mighty, and more than capable. This is your country’s military on Democratism- weak, inept, and world laughing stock. Is the world laughing because we are weak? No they are laughing because the politicians who think they know more than a general about how to fight a war, keep trying to put their 3 cents in. Demanding that a war be fought this way or that. Screw the politicians, why not they’re screwing you.
You really want to know what is wrong with this country? If you are a Democrat then I suggest that you take a long hard look in the freaking mirror- you’re the problem…… and your little dog too(the liberal media). How many people will you try to kill tomorrow?
Signed one pissed off Combat Medic- oh yeah, a Texan at that- to hell with you!
