    Support the Good People

    You watch a movie where some good person is oppressed by some bad person. Throughout the movie your desire for payback against the evil person increases to the point you feel great when (if) that evil person receives his/her just due. Much worse scenarios happen in real life in other countries, and I'm proud that our heroes help the innocent good people. Yes, good people are all over the world - not just in the USA. I'd like to give kudos to Lt. Gen. James Mattis for speaking bluntly about this very topic.

    "you go into Afghanistan; you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them."

    Ok, so he could have used some better grammar but I think what he said was great. Of course there are those that are of some girlie-man mindset that will choke on this since it's not in the "politically correct" vernacular. Strange how those people crave their reality TV shows but somehow can't handle real reality without some sugar coating over it. You da man General!

    The Senate confirmed Alberto Gonzales as the nation's first Latino attorney general Thursday - Congradulations Mr. Gonzales! Again, more minorities are finding their way into higher positions in government when Republicans are at the helm. It should be noted that many Democrats also voted for Mr. Gonzales - the dissenters were those card-carrying members of "civil rights" organizations - think you already know 'em.

    His statement was out of line and only the brainless ones (Bush clones) will support it. This goes for Gonzales also.

    Exactly. He's the kind of guy I want leaing our soldiers. But what he said in public was DUMB.

    He is the shit! I can only imagine how hard the commandant was laughing while he gave him his "reprimand." I would have loved to have been in the room for that one.

    People like Dianne are those who despise the military and all it stands for but are the first to go running to it when they need it. You know, the pansy assed liberals who like to have their cake and eat it...

    People reading my blog know that I am sort of on the fence as to whether we should be engage in certain activities in the Arab region. CERTAIN activities I said. Some we DO need to be involved in. People who dislike this soldier's comments seem to forget how middle easterners who were welcomed into this country to start businesses, gas stations, convenience stores, markets, and other types of businesses were seen cheering when 3,000 innocent people disintegrated along with the Twin Towers. They cheered when U.S. citizens, including many naturalized middle easterners, were incinerated when the planes hit the tower. We expect our soldiers to do a good job, be highly trained professionals, and be victorious when we send them out but for some reason we don't think they should enjoy what they do? Killing people is their job. Handing out care packages and bottled water is for the hippy pansy-asses that don't believe anything worth doing is worth doing well. Come on people. Get with the program. I have doubts about what we were doing in Iraq, but there is absolutely no doubt at all about Afghanistan, a territory of thugs, bastards, and genetically defective greaseballs. One thing I can't stand, on the other hand, is a so-called professional soldier that gives in to politically correct slobbering, and whines about how sad it is to have to go someplace and kill people. Give that guy a boy scout uniform. War is supposed to be brutal, and soldiers are supposed to do a job that makes the enemy unwilling to mess with us. That way, in the long haul we don't have to get caught in so many little brush wars. These things happen to us now because we don't do the job right in the first place, and make war an unacceptable alternative to barbarians and thugs. And if you're going to post, at least leave a blog name.

    I think the PC police are making a big deal out of this. General Patton was the same way.

    "My God, I actually pity those poor bastards we're going up against. My God, I do. We're not just going to shoot the bastards, we're going to cut out their living guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We're going to murder those lousy Hun bastards by the bushel."

    I think Patton was actually being sarcastic, although he may have been thinking of it in warrior terms. He's also the one that said nobody wins wars by dying for their country. You win by making the other bastard die for his.
