THE ROLE OF SWINE IN AMERICAN HISTORY WAR ON TERROR
The Role of 'Swine' in American History War on Terror/Col. Bob Pappas, USMC (ret.)
September 24, 2005 - When this nation was founded, it was done so with the minds, bodies, energies and the shed blood of men and women who were willing to put everything on the line. "Give me liberty, or give me death" was the watchword of that era and it rings as true today as it did when it altered the course of human events for all time. From those days to the present through eras of war and peace it has been patriotic men and women in uniform, with the unswerving support of a united people who planted, nurtured and perpetuated this nation's magnificent heritage.Following the evil events of September 11th, 2001 America once again called upon the men and women of the Armed Forces to defend the nation's freedom and right to exist against an enemy whose objective was, and remains to destroy it. It is a bit of an understatement that the nation is imperfect and needs improvement, indeed to repent of the evil that "liberals" embrace in the guise of tolerance. That notwithstanding, the United States of America, with all its imperfections and "liberals" (yes, I realize it's redundant), when compared to others, including the Islamic Middle East, is a bright and shining beacon in the darkest moments. Men and women in uniform provide the energy of that light, without whom it would extinguish.Service men and women presently on the ramparts of freedom around the world face challenges as never before: physical dangers, forbearance of personal liberty and simple pleasures, separation from loved ones, privation, the pain of heat, cold, injury and loneliness to guard Americans against an unrelenting and vicious enemy; and, who they daily crush like a snake's head under heel. Their lives, as well as the precious memory of those who have given all is enervating to those who know history and understand their vital place in its lineage. A number of years ago, General Carl Mundy, Jr., 30th Commandant of the Marine Corps in testimony before the Congress referred to the Corps as "The Nation's 911 Force." The ignominious attacks of September 11th, 2001, called that "Force" into action, subsequently visiting terminal justice upon innumerable would-be similar aspirants.It is said of Marines, "There is no better friend, and no worse enemy," and America's Islamofacist-enemies are learning it first hand. The "911 Force" is one in which all patriotic Americans can take comfort. Because the enemy will never be able to extinguish the flame of freedom as long as there are U.S. Marines.With the passage of the 4th Anniversary of the attacks of September 11th, the day that swine in human form attacked America, there have arisen in the midst, "liberals," whose shrill utterances mark them as lending comfort to the enemy. If those pathetic souls only knew what those "swine" would do to them if they had the chance, they would not be calling for US troops to be brought home, rather they would be calling for a Crusade to convert those enemies to more civil behavior, as Christians. A recommendation for "liberals:" Buy, borrow or find a Bible in a library, unless they've all been removed by the ACLU, then, read and digest the fifth chapter of Matthew.
