This one pretty much says it all.
Jim Boyd is a graduate of the University of Texas, Captain and Pilot in the US Marines. He flew 200 combat missions in Phantom Jets over Vietnam.
Today is the Marine Corps birthday. Tomorrow is Veteran's Day. Since I am both, please indulge me this rant.
This should go to Congress and the White House, but they wouldn't read it, nor would they give a shit.
Last week a "muslim terrorist", parading as a Army Major, shot and killed 13 soldiers and civilians, and wounded some 30 more. A cop took him down after he managed to get off about 100 rounds while shouting some "allah is great" spit.
Our so called "commander-in chief", barack huessin obama, urged restraint until the facts are known. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs, general casey, implored that violence not be carried out against "muslim" members of the armed services. The head of homeland security, janet napolitano was in the Middle-East reassuring "muslims" that they should have no fear of backlash from the United States. The commanding general of Ft. Hood, the largest military installation in the United States, general cone, said religion did not come into play in the shootings. Once again the victims are shoved under the bus for political correctness. Lack of capital letters is not a mistake, just lack of respect.
The politicians, obama and napolitano are repugnant, empty suits. The military commanders are a little short of the stature of Patton, Bradley and Eisenhower. More of the ilk of westmoreland.
I would venture to guess, if a Marine Officer born in Texas, with a given name of Jimmy Doyle, wrote 20 e-mails to white supremists, while protesting the war and extolling the greatness of suicide bombers and the death of U.S. soldiers, would have been immediately arrested, court martialed, convicted of treason, imprisoned, then given a dishonorable discharge. This bag of shit was promoted, sent to Fort Hood to counsel and teach, and then carry out his cowardly attack on unarmed soldiers.
obama doesn't allow the word "terrorist" to be used in his administration. F--- him, this was a terrorist attack by a member of radical islamics that want us all dead.
The country is fighting a war on two fronts, facing real economic unemployment of 20 %, and this group is hell bent on destroying the best healthcare in the world.
Where is the outrage? I hope it didn't end with the tea parties. I hope it is starting with New Jersey and Virginia.
P.S. Please feel free to send this to someone it might offend.
