What the hell is it with people just kind of ignoring it, because its been 8 years? Are we forgetting that this is the whole reason we're fighting the war right now? Why this was is so important? You can let it become not a momentous deal, when we've won, or at least aren't sending troups over to get shot at because of this anymore.
And, too bad swearing is filtered, or Id rattle off every swear I can think of, is it with people being disrespectful to the dead? "Oh, everyone dies. Stop complaining." Excuse me? When a terrorist kills you or a loved one going about their daily lives, then you can say it doesn't matter, otherwise, keep your FRAGing mouth closed. I dont care if you dont care, I get it, your head is screwed on wrong. That doesnt give you the right to tell people that their feelings are unjustified.
Like any firefighter, I take the brotherhood very, very seriously. When one of our own is lost, fighting a fire or not, its very painful for us. When 343 brothers die, when there was no need for it, we get pissed off. They died being heros, but the thing is, they shouldnt have had to be. Those FRAGing so-called religious people, decided to kill people, and these guys did there best to prevent it. They laid down their lives to save someone elses.
So excuse me, for not respecting your opinion, when you DARE disrespect our heros- police, fire, ems, and military- who would die to save you any day, saying that people 'just die'. Generally speaking, they dont do it to save people, and generally speaking, they dont leave small children at home, wondering why daddy will never come back. Later, knowing its because terrorists decided to kill us because we're different. Then, knowing that theyre complaining because the Koran isnt treated perfectly while theyre in prison. In my opinion, they should be hanged, so they should keep their mouths closed. Maybe an eye for an eye is a good idea. Nuke Iraq because theyre different, and they FRAGed with us, and we're America GOLLY GEE WILIKERS!
As this email put it well:
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 these thugs tell the world they are sorry for chopping off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.
I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in I raq 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 .
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: 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: 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:
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!!

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 hi s 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.'
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.
I didn't really want a debate, I just feel very strongly about this. 9/11 was a tragedy, but was no accident. Remember why we are fighting. Remember those who lost their lives. Remember the heroes who helped, whether or not they paid the sacrifices.
God bless our troops, and bring them all home. God be with the families left behind, and help them find piece when we get Osama's head on a stick.
