With What Brain Working?
Our country has always prided itself on being a nation that is fair and just for all people. Over the past several years our leaders have gotten into a habit of political correctness that is going to get a bunch of Americans hurt or killed. We need to come to the conclusion that our enemies don’t have any intention of playing fair nor do they have any respect for us or our way of life. Whenever we get to thinking otherwise we need to watch some of the news footage from the 9/11 attacks. The people that were killed that day were for the most part just average people that were doing the best they could to provide for the needs of their family. They were victims of murder. After the planes crashed into the twin towers, many of the people above the crash had no means of escape and were being roasted alive by the fires below them, many of them jumped to their deaths instead of being burnt alive. The job of going after the groups responsible fell upon the men and women of our armed forces. Now some of our soldiers are facing charges because some terrorist is claiming that they were a victim of excessive force.
The person in question is Ahmed Hashim Abed who allegedly masterminded the 2004 murder of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah. The four bodies were mutilated, burned, and two were hung from a bridge. He claims he was hit during his capture, citing a bloody lip as evidence. As a result, three Navy SEALs face assault charges and court martial. Our military was never intended to be a police force. There is a huge difference in a police officer and a soldier. I do not envy ether job but for the most part citizen criminals are not intent upon killing the police officer; but our soldiers are going after people whose stated goal is to kill as many infidel Americans as possible.
For all of those people who want to press charges on our soldiers, maybe they should take their place for a while and show them how to do the job. If we don’t start using our brains and stop condemning the very people who are protecting us, who will be willing to do the job in the future?
