MILITARY FATHER FIRES WRATH AT ME AND VETERANS
© 2006 - NewsWithViews.com
On November 15, 2006, I sent four boxes to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan via several organizations. Our military need so many things while deployed, but they also get plenty bored in these foreign lands and like books, music and DVDs. Each box contained a half dozen paper backs of different genres, four complete sets of my CDs and two each of my booklets in hard copy. Due to the generosity of donations, I am able to make these CDs available for our troops to hear because to me, it's critical they understand what's going on here at home and who is controlling their destiny. Three days after I sent my boxes, I received the e-mail below. While this veteran used his real name, he signed off with War Dawg, so I'll just use that here.
"I was searching sites supported by good, reliable, American loving, strong and supporting citizens for getting Thanksgiving/Christmas packages to our troops. You fall so short that you would to reach up to touch the ground. After 30 years in the Marine Corps, Force Recon with the last 14 years attached to a team based out of Virginia, I never seem to stop being amazed at those claiming to be ex-military and/or their families spewing forth incredible garbage.
"To have your site with links to such anti-American agendas that directly proclaim and insinuate that the government was behind the 9/11 tragedies or suggest cover-ups, questioning the constitutionality of the Iraq/Afghanistan conflicts, suggesting rigged elections, etc., etc....blah, blah puts you at the bottom of the crap can. Sounds like a bleeding heart, low-life liberal democrap puke to me.
"Both of my sons will roll out of the military next year because of this election and their refusal to serve under any government controlled by liberal radicals. To quote my eldest: "The whores of Babylon won the elections and I ain't bending over for any of the pukes or fight for the pukes that elected them." People like you are beneath contempt. You are not worth the effort, let alone worth dying for under any circumstance." Desert War Dawg
My husband is a retired U.S. Army Colonel who spent 27 years in uniform, fought in Viet Nam and was owned 24/7 for almost three decades by the Army. It is civilians in Congress who determine which wars will be started to serve their masters, enrich their coffers and satisfy their lust for power. War is big business, period. War Dawg condemns Americans who question the constitutionality of invading foreign countries based on mountains of lies. What? Shame on War Dawg. This is supposed to be a government of, by and for the people, not some dictatorship where the people can't question government. But, we're almost there if we the people don't stop what's happening.
War Dawg conveniently forgets that it's civilians who elect the U.S. Congress and our president (or, we used to before the machines came along and are now doing it for us) and it is our duty to hold our elected public servants accountable - especially when it comes to war. I am an American with the right to vote for my elected leaders who make and conduct foreign policy. War Dawg blasts me as not being a "good, reliable, American loving, strong and supporting citizen for getting Thanksgiving/Christmas packages to our troops" because I exercise my right of free speech and participate in holding my government accountable. I suppose he also condemns those soldiers who took the unprecedented step of signing an appeal to Congress to get US out of Iraq; see here. It's either Dawg's way or the highway.
There is nothing "noble" or "honorable" about the illegal invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. For those who may not have read his words, I encourage you to read what Kevin Tillman, brother of Pat Tillman, wrote about this "war against terrorism." I suppose in War Dawg's book, Kevin isn't qualified to speak about a war he fought in and cost his brother his life; read here. Kevin Tillman so eloquently wrote what millions of us feel; I simply wanted to cry while reading his words. Or how about this excerpt from James McKinnon, November 8, 2006 in a letter to the editor on WND:
"I was in the Army for 20 years, and I know that criticizing the SECDEF is something you don't do unless you have an extremely good reason. Senior officers never criticize the SECDEF. In fact, I've never known any generals to criticize the SECDEF or the administration. Anyone in the military will tell you that something is horribly, horribly wrong if generals are doing that.
"Something is horribly wrong. Soldiers are being used as the personal pawns of the administration. When we join, we swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States against all enemies. We don't swear to free the Iraqi people, or to uphold the rights of foreigners with our blood. We don't sign up to insure the future of Iraqi children at the expense of our own. We don't give a damn about the freedom of the Iraqi people, and neither do you (for that matter, neither do the Iraqis). We care about the freedom of the citizens of the United States of America, and so should you. The administration sent soldiers to their deaths on false pretense. Why? I'd like to know, and I'm sure that the families of the seven members of my unit who didn't come home would like to know.
"My unit and I crossed the berm into Iraq on the first night of the invasion. That first night as we were traveling across the desert in our vehicle, we were listening to a small radio that an NCO had with him. We were wondering what they would call the operation. I had been in Just Cause and Desert Storm, so I wondered what this new operation would be called. When they announced that it would be Operation Iraqi Freedom, my team and I laughed because of the cynicism of it. The administration was already distancing itself from the stated WMD reason. We didn't give a damn about the freedom of the Iraqis and we knew that no one else in America did, either.
"A horrible thing is happening. Soldiers are dying for something other than the Constitution of the United States. Illegal aliens are being allowed to invade our country while our military is thousands of miles away, and no one with the power to do anything about it is willing to lift a finger against it. The Constitution is being ignored as though it were an inconvenience. Horrible crimes are being committed against our forefathers by those in power. These are things that should not be ignored."
Mr. McKinnon said it so well for millions of us. How about Captain Robert Secher? Newsweek published a story about Captain Robert Secher, United States Marine. In this article are e-mails from Capt. Secher to his family. While he supported this unconstitutional war (don't know what he really knew about 911), he came to the correct conclusion about America's OCCUPATION of someone else's country: "My 3 month informed opinion (based entirely on what I see in the Hit region) is that this war is futile. Even the Iraqi soldiers tell us that when America leaves, they'll quit...The whole thing felt kind of weird. Especially when you have kick in a gate, go charging in, weapon on fire, finger on the trigger, charge to the front door start banging on it, and then some old man comes to the door... As an American it really feels odd to enter peoples homes and question them, and with the authority that if they don't want to cooperate, I can detain them. This is what martial law would be like." Please keep him and his family in your prayers. Capt. Secher was killed on Oct. 8, 2006, thousands of miles from home and family.
As for War Dawg's comments about 911: I am sick to death of Americans sending me nasty mail condemning me for asking reasonable questions about the worst mass murder on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor - wholesale slaughter FDR allowed to take place. It is our duty and our obligation as Americans to always seek the truth no matter where it might lead us, no matter how painful. This isn't "anti-American" and that label is wearing mighty thin with those of us fighting so hard to save this republic. Americans who choose to stay in their comfort zones, joyfully waving the American flag without ever looking further than two feet in front of their face don't get my respect. As for War Dawg's son's comment about the whores of Babylon (Democrats) winning the elections, who says they did? I'm working on my post election column, which is taking awhile because there's a lot of numbers to analyze, as well as documenting all the problems that swamped "election" day.
It doesn't matter to War Dawg that I'm not a "low-life liberal democrap." He doesn't care what I am, only that his two sons are in danger every minute they're in the theater of operations. I understand that. But, War Dawg's sons are not fighting in Iraq for my freedom any more than he and my husband fought in Viet Nam for my freedom. War Dawg might ask himself why Bush has refused to shut down the border with Mexico which is hemorrhaging terrorists right into our front yard? War Dawg's selective blindness when it comes to Republicans vs Democrats is killing this country.
War Dawg will never take the time to watch 911 Mysteries: Demolitions nor will he take the time to watch Dr. Steven E. Jones (1) explain the physics behind the twin towers and building 7. Why? Because he cannot and will not allow anything to disturb his preconceived notions of what he needs to believe. To deviate from what he's been fed by Bush and his criminal cabal would be too painful - especially because his sons are in a war zone. It also doesn't seem to bother War Dawg that while Bush has sent his sons to further the destruction of Iraq under the phony guise of "democracy," Bush and his Republican controlled Congress have virtually dismantled the Bill of Rights and erected a police state over the past 5 1/2 years. When his sons come home, they will find their very own freedom and liberty has been stripped from them with rah, rah support from their own father.
Regardless of how you feel about Bush and the mess he has created in Iraq and Afghanistan, I hope you might find it in your heart to send our troops a little Christmas cheer while they're thousands of miles away from home and family. We have troops all over the globe, not just in Iraq and Afghanistan and I know they will appreciate a Christmas greeting from their fellow Americans. Here are a few suggestions:
Besides the packages I sent last month, this week I'm mailing two new DVDs (the magnificent, Open Range, and Mel Gibson's The Patriot) to Walter Reed Army Medical Center. I was there in September 2003 and it broke my heart. The wards, beds and hallways were full of our own in various stages of injuries and or at death's door. While the rooms have nice TVs, they also have DVD players for movies to help our wounded and dying enjoy a little time not thinking about their pain and future. If you'd like to send something - even if it's just a card - mail goes to: Walter Reed Medical Center, Merry Christmas for Any Soldier, 6900 Georgia Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20307-5001.
Books can be mailed to: Nathan Nickaboine HHC 2-8 IN, 4ID, UNIT#40502, APO, AE 09312

(1) Dr. Steven Jones was a professor of physics at Brigham Young University for twenty years (Bio here). Dr. Jones had the courage to ask questions and then provide scientific answers. His reward: attacks by media disinformation hacks like Rush Windbag, Shawn Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, et al, who maintain that anyone who asks reasonable questions about 911 are America haters and conspiracy kooks. The situation became intolerable for Dr. Jones so he retired. That is the face of a cowardly nation today: Disagree with an expert's opinion (message), use the controlled media to destroy that individual (messenger). It is beyond disgraceful what's happened to decent man like Dr. Jones, but he continues to speak out in pursuit of truth, not politics.
