This was written by a Canadian housewife in New Brunswick , to her local newspaper, but how it also applies to the U.S., U.K. and Australia.These feeling are echoes by thousands of people,but most are ashamed to admit them.


Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001 and have continually threatened to do so since?

Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from the nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?
And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency?

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan .

I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blows themselves up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

I'll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:

I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank:

I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and 'fed special' food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled, ' you can absolutely believe in
your heart of hearts:

I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.' Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it,

I don't care!!

And may I add:

'Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Soldiers don't have that problem.'

I have another quote that I would like to add, AND.......I hope you forward all this.

One last thought for the day: Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

1. Jesus Christ

2. The Canadian Soldier.

3. The British Soldier.

4. The US Soldier, and

5. The Australian Soldier

One died for your soul, the other 4 for your freedom.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET ALL OF THEM.

AMEN!

These are my thoughts about this letter:

In my opinion,those who refuse to believe we are in at war with Islamic terrorism are either helplessly deceived or out of touch with reality.This is a fight we must win,there is no middle ground,no in between.You are either with us or against us.
There is no honor among our enemy,no rules of war,no dignity.They want us all dead,and are willing to do anything to meet that end.The only thing they understand is force,and if we are weak and do not return that same force they will exterminate us all.
They are driven by religion and hatred,a very deadly combination.You don't have to be Christian to be a target of these mindless zealots.They kill their own with impunity,in their pursuit to destroy "the infidel".This threat is no less than that of the axis during WWII.In fact due to the complacency of the world now,it is even greater.
I am not an alarmist,but a realist.So if you feel my ramblings lean toward paranoia,well that's your opinion,and many have died so that you may be free to express it.This quote might be from a movie,but it is very true"chance favors the prepared mind".
There is no way to prepare for every contingency,but we should have a constant state of awareness,so that when and if that dreaded day comes,we will not hesitate at that critical "moment of truth".In the end we alone are responsible for our own safety.
That is a truism so many have failed to realize or take responsibility for.Like everything else they "pass the buck" because they cannot handle the reality that there are evil people in this world willing and wanting to do them harm for no other reason than the sick pleasure they derive from it.
It is such a shame that some people will never realize these things and take their safety for granted.I hope none of you ever do.

So quick we are to forget the things of our past. How quick we become complacent and comfortable with our past...

I too don't really care about the "rights" of the extremest that means my family, friends or country harm

Matt,
You hit the nail right on the head. It is amazing how many people just don't get it. As a New Yorker and A LEO in the NYPD, I lost some good friends that day. I will never forget. No one wants war, but, as they say, "The true warrior prays for peace, but, prepares for war"

Rights? Where do my rights end and their's begin? It seems to shift the wrong way a little more very day. I don't care what, if any, faith a man may have. As a human there are basic virtues everyone can agree too.

si vis pacem, para bellum
"If you seek peace, prepare for war"

No one has love greater than this, that someone should surrender his soul in behalf of his friends.John 15:13

Those who sacrifice themselves for people they don't even know are true hero's.The courage and self sacrifice they display is something to be honered by everyone who has ever drawn breath.They do this because of who they are inside,not because of fame or fortune seeking,or because the "pay" is so good.We owe them a debt of unrepayable gratitude.My heart goes out to all those loved and lost due to their own love and self sacrifice for their fellow man.May God bless and keep you all.
All gave some,some gave all
