Sorry ???

Lieutenant   General Chuck Pitman

Semper  Fi!

Wed, May 14, 2008

This 'Letter of  Apology' was written by Lieutenant Gene ral Chuck Pitman, US Marine Corps, Retired:
For good and  ill, the Iraqi prisoner abuse mess will remain an issue. On the one hand, right thinking Americans will abhor the stupidity of the actions while on  the other hand, political glee will take control and fashion this minor event into some modern day  massacre.
I humbly offer my opinion here:
I am sorry that the last seven times we Americans took up arms and sacrificed the  blood of our youth; it was in the defense of Muslims ( Bosnia , Kosovo, Gulf War 1, Kuwait , etc.)
I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the extremists came after  9/11.
I am sorry that all of the murderers on 9/11 were Islamic Arabs.
I am sorry that most Arabs and Muslims have to live in squalor under savage dictatorships.
I am sorry that their leaders squander their  wealth.
I am sorry that their governments breed hate for the US in their religious schools, mosques, and government-controlled  media.
I am sorry that Yasser Arafat was kicked out of every Arab country and high-jacked the Palestinian 'cause.'
I am sorry that no other Arab country will take in or offer m ore than a token amount of financial help to those same  Palestinians.
I am sorry that the U.S.A. has to step  in and be the biggest financial supporter of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely wealthy Arabs blame the USA for all their problems.
I am sorry that our own left wing, our media, and our own brainwashed masses do not understand any of this (from the misleading vocal elements of our society like radical professors, CNN and the NY TIMES).
I am sorry the United Nations scammed the poor people of Iraq out of the  'food for oil' money so they could get rich while the common folk suffered.
I am sorry that some Arab governments pay the families of homicide bombers upon their  death 
I am sorry that those same bombers are brainwashed thinking they will receive 72  virgins in 'paradise.'
I am sorry that the homicide bombers think pregnant women, babies, children, the  elderly and other noncombatant civilians are legitimate targets.
I am sorry that our troops die to free more Arabs from the gang rape rooms and the filling of mass graves of dissidents of their own  making.
I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed more Arabs than any other  group.
I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to seize control of Iraq and return  it to a terrorist state.
I am sorry we don't drop a few dozen Daisy cutters on  Fallujah.
I am sorry every time terrorists hide they find a convenient 'Holy  Site.'
I am sorry they didn't apologize for driving a jet into the World  Trade &nb sp;Center that  collapsed and severely damage d Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church - one  of our Holy Sites.
I am sorry they didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole, the embassy  bombings, the murders and beheadings of Nick Berg and Daniel Pearl, etc....etc!
I am sorry Michael Moore is American; he could feed a medium sized village in   Africa  .
America will get past this latest absurdity. We will punish those responsible because  that is what we do.
I am sorry the Barack Hussein Obama may be elected president of the United States  when he doesn't have a clue on how to be a strong Commander-in-chief in a  world filled with Muslim extremists who will do whatever it needs to do to destroy the lives of civilized people while killing innocent men, women and children in order to bring a change that is beneficial to all Islamic terrorists worldwide.  
I am sorry  that voters on the left don't understand the f rightening changes that  are taking place in the Muslim world and what these changes will do to this world in which we live. 
I am sorry  that the Democratic Party has been highjacked by Socialists and Communists  right under the very noses of those who take pride in calling themselves democrats.
We hang out our dirty laundry for the entire world to see. We move on. That's one of the reasons we are hated so much. We don't hide this stuff like all those Arab countries that are now demanding an  apology.
Deep down inside, when most Americans saw this reported in the news, we were like -  so what? We lost hundreds and made fun of a few prisoners. Sure, it was wrong, sure, it dramatically hurts our cause, but until captured we were  trying to kill these same prison ers. Now we're supposed to wring our hands  be ca use a few were humiliated?
Our compassion is tempered with the vivid memories of our own people killed,  mutilated and burnt amongst a joyous crowd of celebrating Fallujahans.
If you want  an apology from this American, you're going to have a long wait! You have a better chance of finding those seventy-two  virgins.
