    Default Marine's apology

    A Letter of Apology from Lieutenant General Chuck Pitman, U.S. Marine
    Corps, Retired

    "For good and ill, the Iraqi prisoner abuse mess will remain an issue.
    On the one hand, right thinking Americans will harbor 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 Yasir 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 more than a
    token amount of financial help to those same Palestinians.

    I am sorry that the USA 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 non-combatant 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
    Center that collapsed and severely damaged 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.

    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 those same prisoners. Now we're supposed
    to wring our hands because a few were humiliated?

    Our compassion is tempered with the vivid memories of our own people
    killed, mutilated and burned among 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!

    Semper Fi,
    Chuck Pitman, Lt. Gen., U.S. Marine Corps (Ret.)


    Friend of mine that I work with is an ex-marine and sent this to me, just thought I would share....

    no, i am just saying its another view that can't be expressed without trashing someone else. Calling Michael Moore fat not only is overdone but unecessary, simplifing the causes of going into Iraq and other middle eastern areas as opposed to the recent war is short sighted. If it was an intelligent piece that would be one thing, but instead it comes off as a t"think this way or fuck you" type of message, and is NOT helpful to the country, nor the marines that are fighting overseas.

    Of course, you're entitled to express your view, whether it's in support of, or in opposition to, or some shade of gray in between. Marines have faught and won wars protecting your right to do so.

    But let's be honest, yawning didn't express your view. It didn't articulate where you differed from the Marine's post. All it showed was that you disapproved.

    The essence of his "apology" is recognition: recognition that the sacrificial and honorable work that he does for his nation is not appreciated and even discredited by many within his nation. A big portion of this "many" is the media. And let's face it, Michael Moore and his movie is a huge part of the media.

    The Marine is venting his truth. It's totally understandable.

    I don't really care for Michael Moore to be honest with you, but what exactly is it that you think he and his movie did to not appreciate and discredit our military?
