    Default We did not start the War.

    I agree 100%

    The lady who wrote this letter is Pam Foster of Pamela Foster and Associates in Atlanta. She's been in business since 1980 doing interior design and home planning. She recently wrote a letter to a family member serving in Iraq....... Read it!

    "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?

    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?

    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.

    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 possession of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 that 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 that 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 that 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 and ---- you guessed it - I don't care.

    If you agree with this viewpoint, pass it on to all your friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior! If you don't agree, then by all means you have the GOD given opportunity to hit the delete button.

    Should you choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great country.

    I am not deleting this, I am sending it on, but only after 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." -- Ronald Reagan

    I have another quote that I would like to add. "If we ever forget that we're One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under." also by... Ronald Reagan

    BZZZZZZT!!

    Survey says.....

    WRONG!!


    Claim: The relative of a soldier serving in Iraq penned the 'I'll care if . . ." polemic.

    Status: False.

    Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2005]

    Origins: Although the article quoted above has come to be attributed to a Pam Foster, it is actually the work of Doug Patton, a freelance columnist and political speechwriter. The e-mail-circulated version leaves off his two opening paragraphs and adds a closing "I don't give a sheet either about those sheet heads!" statement that wasn't in his original, but it is otherwise a faithful copy of his article, which was first published on the gopusa.com web site on 6 June 2005 under the title "Ask Me if I Care About 'Mishandling' of Koran" and which has since been reproduced on a number of other web sites.

    So, in other words, you aren't reading the words of a "soldier's mom", but a paid propagandist from the same "news organiztion" which brought you the White House's favorite homosexual prostitute, James Jeffy Gannon Guckert. Hell, he probably helped Patton write this racist hatemongering horseshit.

    The source is not entirely important when the essence of these words are true.

    "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?

    You can take the Islamic war back to 711 and earlier. Their advance on Christian Society is blatantly clear to those who want to know the truth about their intentions and convictions.

    Same War.

    That's the popular theory. But it's never been proven as fact. In any event, it was NOT the Iraqi people, and even assuming the BCE "official story" is true, I'd bet that 99.995% of those held hostage in various concentration camps worldwide also had nothing to do with it. Otherwise they would have been CHARGED WITH A CRIME AND PUT ON TRIAL, rather than tortured.

    This sick society is not even remotely CHRISTIAN. The shortest verse in the Bible is "Jesus Wept". If the Gospels had been written today, it would have been rivaled by "Jesus Puked"

    But that's the problem. I agree we need to keep our eyes open so we agree on that. But, you believe in stuff that has been easily proven wrong...You are so far off on the Kennedy thing that it's almost sad, demonstrably so by, uh, ME...

    I agree with the need for vigilance and that government abuse issues need to be brought into the light, but how about some that are steeped in reality like the need for divestment from Sudan, the continuing international slave trade, or fraud in the "entitlement" system?

    There's real stuff going on out there, man...You are so blinded by ideology and comfortable suppositions that you are missing some serious stuff...

    CHRISTIAN adjective or CHRISTIAN sustantivo. Christians put Bush in office. Bush went after the bad guys. are you connecting the dots? Iraqis are Muslims. Muslims are from Ishmael and Christians and Jews from Issac who is from Abraham. SAME WAR THOUGHOUT TIME.

    I just covered the history of the world in a couple of phrases. Damn.

    You think I can't prove that the moors advanced on Spain and paraded around decapitated Christian heads piled high on carriages in moorish splendor? Ok. What can you prove negating it's validity? cuz it's a goood story and I don't think you can match it. at least for entertainment sake you lose dude.

    Then why don't you start some threads on those topics (and worthy topics they are), rather than hijack this thread.

    Here are some factual statements about this "war"

    1) Al Qaeda (whatever it actually is) exists because George Bush Sr's CIA created a terrorist force to fight Russians in Afghanistan, and put Osama Bin Laden in charge of that group.

    2) The PNAC agenda, which includes the takeover of Iraq, openly called for an "event such as Pearl Harbor" in order to win the approval of a shocked American public. The charter document of PNAC was signed by Jeb Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, and others involved in what became the George Bush Jr administration.

    3) Chimpy and the PNAC'ers LIED us into the Iraq war. There was no threat. There were no weapons. There was no tie to Al Qaeda.

    Given these three statements of fact, how can you accept that ANYTHING you have been told by this Fraudministration is true? By their very nature, they are liars and traitors.

    That's what needs to be discussed in THIS thread. Africa's an entirely different set of problems altogether.

    Christians who voted for him the first time were sadly mistaken. Anyone professing to be a "Christian" after he lied us into a war had better learn how to read their Bibles.

    Bush went after the bad guys.
    Arguably he did so in Afghanistan. But he certainly didn't follow through with it. The bad guy (Osama) is still out there. And the Taliban, shit heads though they may have been, didn't attack this country.

    are you connecting the dots? Iraqis are Muslims. Muslims are from Ishmael and Christians and Jews from Issac who is from Abraham. SAME WAR THOUGHOUT TIME.
    This isn't about Isaac and Ishmael. Saddam Hussein was not running a religious state. Nor was he connected to Al Qaeda in any way.

    I wasn't around back then, so I have no way of knowing what the facts are. Nor do I particularly give a rat's ass. It's got nothing to do with anything going on in the current reality. Though I suppose if I was you, I could go around hating all Spanish people for something their ancestors did centuries ago.
