Emperor Roland Posted June 17, 2014 Report Share Posted June 17, 2014 You know, it's been a while since i stirred up some shit around here, so I will apologize for my lack of attention, and try to make up for all of it in one topic! So... for those watching the news, i am sure you have heard about the Islamic Militant group that is current trying to forceably take over the County of Iraq. If you have not heard about it, then please take my word for the. ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) Have made a large name for themselves as they take over cities, kill thousands, and even like to show their executions on the internet. no matter what people may say, these are some bad dudes. I would say dudettes as well, but well we all know how the woman are treated under Extreme Islam. So what is the US doing about it? Well we MIGHT send in some planes. and, we'll shake our fingers at them, and try to send them to bed with out dinner (that would be sanctions to those who didn't know before hand)... so not a damned thing. Now i know a lot of people out there are saying that the war was bad.... that we should not have been there in the first place. or that this is their mess, why do we need to step in? Something that might surprise a lot of people is... i felt the same way... UNTIL... and that until was when we decided to send men and women to a foreign country. at which point, my personal opinions became a moot point because, even though i did not like it, it did not change the fact that we were there. and yes.. like it or not, agree with it or not. when the decision was made to send troops into harms way, i don't give a shit if you disagree with the war, you had better support the troops. If not, then i know of a Church in Kansas that you can go and be with others. I have seen people say, when they see pictures of US military in the Iraq or Afghanistan, that they were Ashamed to be an American. If your shame is so great, then get the fuck out. There has only been one time that i can say that i was ashamed.... and that is when i see pictures of our service men and women getting spat on as they returned from Vietnam. (And i wasn't even born then) Protest the war? Go for it! enjoy the hell out of it. Hell i may join you. but disrespect the troops? If i EVER personally witness someone doing that, I WILL be in jail. You may wonder why i bring this up, in this post. well let me explain it. In Iraq we lost a total of 4,489 American Service Members. Officially there are 32,021 wounded. unofficially i think the number is a LOT higher. (per http://www.antiwar.com/casualties/) These number are terrible. and yes, i got them from an Anti war site. mainly because i did not want anyone thinking that i was undercutting the numbers. Then we had President Obama bowing to the pressures of the Left, and pulled us out of the War before the area was secure. guess what... like the war or not, once we went in, we should have finished it. not leaving it like it was. and now, the Iraqi people, the ones that almost 4500 men and women DIED defending, are being left defenseless while we sit back here and cluck our tongues thinking it's such a shame. THAT IS DISHONORING THOSE THAT FOUGHT, WERE WOUNDED, OR DIED OVER THERE!!!!!!!!! I don't care if you disagreed with us going over there. once we put boots on the ground, all the other shit should have stopped, and we should have been behind them 110%. Don't like the fact that we were over there? fine, take it out on the people the sent them, not the soldiers! And now... since we left the country high and fucking dry, we are seeing EXACTLY what a lot of people said would. This is what happens when Politicians lead a war, and not the soldiers fighting the war, or the people that are supposedly in charge who are just sucking some politicians ass, so they can get a Star. Fact: we sent troops to Iraq. Fact: We are now spitting on those soldiers by telling them that what they did over there, didn't mean a God Damned thing Like the facts or not, it makes no difference. facts don't care about personal feelings, personal beliefs, or political allegiances. they are FACTS. Okay, now that i got that off my chest, let the flames begin!!! LOL. Again, feel free to disagree with me, that is what this thread is for.
