Okay, when I started this blog I had no idea this war we are fighting with terrorism would even come up. But now it has, twice. The reason is because I read a couple of other things that so aggravated me that I had to write something or go about fuming all day. Here, I get to heave out my frustrations upon this unsuspecting blog.
First, you can go and read this at Pyromaniac's blog. Basically, the article talks about the BBC's refusal to use the word "terrorist" to describe, well, terrorists. Instead, they opt for words like "militant" or some other such thing. It's downright depressing.
Then, I read this! I am absolutely stunned that this is even an issue. This amounts to irresponsible, war-undermining speech? I am utterly flabberghasted.
Has anyone who reads this blog ever heard Terrell Owens speak before an NFL game? Now, I am not condoning his speeches by any means, but he talks better trash than this National Guard flyer does. Further, he is talking trash before a football game! Why? To boost the morale of his team and to demoralize the other team. Simple psychology.
I have a friend at home named Kenny Chaffin. This guy can talk better trash than anybody I know. He can make his best friends red with fury. With his mouth alone, he can make someone miss an easy lay up, drop an easy pass, or miss a straight putt from five inches. It's truly unbelievable. I'd hate to see the flyers he'd come up with for the National Guard.
These Islamic Terrorists are killing our countrymen. If you were in their units, they would be killing your friends. Plus, they are blowing up civilians. Women and children even! Yet, we can't post a little "let's kill them all and let God sort them out" propoganda from our own Army Headquarters! Is this insane or what?
Do we have an enemy here? Are they bent on cutting off our heads and liberties, or am I completely fooled? I suppose this is the sort of garbage we should post at Army HQ.
"Let's try and terminate the militants. Now, they're not evil, mind you, and their religion doesn't really teach them to destroy us. They are only misguided. Feel bad for them, but don't say bad stuff about them. They will eventually come around if we treat them nicer."
This just makes me want to slap somebody. I know, I know, that's Un-PC and all that, but that's how I feel. Be nice to me, and give me some time and maybe I'll eventually come around.
