>>Written by a housewife from New Jersey and sounds like it! This is one pissed off lady.<<
The following drivel was obviously not written by a housewife in New Jersey. It is typical White House/GOP propaganda written by a shill paid to repeat the White House's false propaganda meant to achieve nothing more than to pull the wool over the eyes of the American public.
>>"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
Are you asking if they were Muslims or are you asking if they were Iraqi? Yes, they were Muslims but, no, not a single one was Iraqi. This has been the White House tactic since day one: Blame 9-11 on Iraq. They're all Muslims and so who cares which Muslims actually pulled it off? Among Bush's supporters, this kind of thinking has great resonance but it doesn't fly for intelligent, decent people who are not about to let thousands upon thousands of innocent people die in Iraq over a Bush administration lie.
>>Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not
brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac
from our 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?<<
Yes, but more people than that are dying in Iraq every month or two with no end in sight. If it is unacceptable that people should die in those numbers in America even once, it is unacceptable for America to force it on another country for years at a time.
>>And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was
"desecrated" when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it
wet?...Well, I don't. I don't care at all.<<
An overworked American soldier? You mean a soldier sent to Iraq four or five times because there is no draft and therefore not enough soldiers to effectively fight this war? So do I care if this soldier is overworked? Absolutely, I care. As for his desecrating the Quran, I care no more than if he desecrated a bible or the Rig Veda, but that he is doing it out of stress and mental instability brought on grueling multiple tours because the rest of Americans don't want to get their hands bloody concerns me a great deal and, if you had any sense and any decency, it would concern you also.
>>I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and
repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.<<
Turns himself in??? How pathetic. Your president said he was going to catch him. Now that he has proven himself too incompetent to do that, you expect bin Laden to simply turn himself in??? And if he doesn't then you're going to hate Islam?? Not only is that incredibly immature, it's absurd because you obviously despise Islam already and we know that even if bin Laden turned himself it wouldn't change your feelings about Islam one iota. You have a right to despise this religion if you are so inclined but don't dangle your contempt for it in front of people like a carrot on a stick. Nobody really cares what you think anymore than you claim to care about Islam.
>>I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East
start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a
crime in Saudi Arabia.<<
Isn't Saudi Arabia this big American ally? Yes. So why complain about the laws of a country we call a friend? A more pertinent question to ask is whether the bible was outlawed in Iraq under Saddam? No. There were and still are Christians living in Iraq. Thanks to Bush, there very likely won't be in a few years.
>>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
Nick Berg never made a sound—watch the video, which you obviously haven't. There is a video of a man screaming while his head is being cut off with a knife and the least you could do is learn his name to honor him properly instead of calling him by someone else's name. That is disrespectful and only shows how ill-informed you really are. You only bother to mention him to advance your agenda, otherwise you obviously don't care or you would know his real name.
>>I'll care when the cowardly so-called "insurgents" in Iraq come
out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by
hiding in mosques.<<
Perhaps you would rather they hide in tanks? Don't be ridiculous. Moreover, you have no knowledge of how Muslims view their religion and you, by your own admission, don't care to know. What then gives you the right to pronounce what is disrespectful to Islam? That makes you a hypocrite. Please be quiet and stop embarrassing America.
>>I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in
search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.<<
The concept of nirvana does not exist in Islam, stupid. How can you pass judgment on that which you clearly do not understand and don't care to understand? Why then should anyone listen to you since you know nothing of what you speak and are proud of it?
>>I'll care when the American media stops pretending that their
First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.<<
More pro-war whining: "Wahhh! The media aren't reporting the war the way we want them to. They only focus on the destruction we are causing and ignore the good things! Wahhhh!!!" You had your chance to make good things happen—you had four years—and you blew it. Don't blame anyone but yourselves. Bush declared the end of major combat years ago. Whose fault was that but his? You have been allowed to run this war the way you saw fit without any interference or oversight from anyone and you blew it. Now be quiet.
>>In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine
roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care. When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners who have been humiliated in what amounts to a college-hazing incident, rest assured: I don't care.<<
Apparently, this New Jersey housewife listens to Rush Limbaugh since she spouts the exact same rhetoric. Are we talking about the brave marines that raped a 14-year-old girl, murdered her and her family including a 5-year-old girl? Like the marines that murdered an unarmed man and then tried to make him look like he was planting an IED? Admit it, THAT is what you don't care about! It is the media reporting on such incidents that infuriates you against the media.
>>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.<<
Told not to move by whom? Someone speaking English? But then, why am I asking you?
>>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.<<
But these are piddling incidents that you are using to hide disgusting atrocities committed by American troops. It is these atrocities that you don't care about and we know this by your omitting any mention of them simply because you can't defend them. Be honest for once. I'm not trying tear down our troops but when an atrocity is committed, it's an atrocity no matter who does it.
>>And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled
"Koran" and other times "Quran." Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and -you guessed it -"I don't care!!!!!<<
>>If you agree with this viewpoint,<<
>>pass this on to all your e-mail friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior!<<
That's exactly what I am doing.
>>If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button.<<
You wish. I'm curious, though, your reference to a delete button in a letter supposedly written by a New Jersey housewife—how does that work? Are we to believe a New Jersey housewife wrote this and sent it out by email all across the nation??
>>Should you choose the latter, then please don't complain when more
atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great country!<<
That won't happen because our great president assures us that he's keeping the country safe. Remember?
>>And may I add:
"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a
difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem." --
The same Reagan who pulled our marines out of Lebanon after a suicide bomber killed over 200 of them?
>>I have another quote that I would like to add AND .......I hope you forward all this.<<
>>"If we ever forget that we're One Nation Under God, then we will
be a nation gone under." Also by.. Ronald Reagan<<
Yes, I'm sure every New Jersey housewife is brimming with Reagan quotes. I'm not going to bother to check if Reagan said any of those things because it's my turn to say, "I don't care."
>>One last thought for the day:
In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the
anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England's
Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America, he said:
"A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how
many want in... And how many want out."<<
Well, Iraq must measure greatly because we sure wanted in there. And millions have fled Iraq because of the chaos and violence we unleashed there by invading that nation. It takes some gall to criticize Iraq for this reason.
>>Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G.I.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET BOTH OF
I forget the former by choice because I don't believe in fables and as for the latter, who has shuffled them off to a hellhole and left them there since 2003 with no hope of winning? They didn't offer to die, we demanded it of them.
