    Subject: Letter of "Apology"

    Author unknown...sentiment shared. Wholeheartedly in agreement!


    For good and ill, the Iraqi prisoner abuse mess will remain an issue --
    on
    the one hand right thinking Americans will abhor the stupidity of the
    actions while on the other hand political glee will take control and
    fashion
    this minor event into some modern day My Lai massacre.

    I heard some Arabs are asking for an apology. I humbly offer mine
    here:

    I am sorry that the last seven times the Americans took up arms and
    sacrificed the blood our youth it was in the defense of Muslims
    (Bosnia,
    Kosovo, Gulf War 1 ? Kuwait, etc.)

    I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the extremists came
    after
    9/11. I am sorry that all of the murderers on 9/11 were Arabs.

    I am sorry that Arabs have to live in squalor under savage
    dictatorships.

    I am sorry that their leaders squander their wealth. I am sorry that
    their
    governments breed hate for the US in their religious schools.

    I am sorry that Yasir Arafat was kicked out of every Arab country and
    highjacked the Palestinian "cause." I am sorry that no other Arab
    country
    will take in or offer more than a token amount of financial help to
    those
    same Palestinians.

    I am sorry that the USA has to step in and be the biggest financial
    supporters of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely wealthy Arabs
    blame
    the USA.

    I am sorry that our own left wing elite and our media can't understand
    any
    of this.

    I am sorry the United Nations scammed the poor people of Iraq out of
    the"food for oil" money so they could get rich while the common folk
    suffered.

    I am sorry that some Arab governments pay the families of homicide
    bombers
    upon their death. I am sorry that those same bombers are seeking 72
    virgins
    ? I can't seem to find one here on Earth.

    I am sorry that the homicide bombers think babies are a legitimate
    target.

    I am sorry that our troops died to free more Arabs. I am sorry they
    stopped
    the gang rape rooms and the filling of mass graves of dissidents.

    I am sorry they show so much restraint when their brothers in arms are
    killed. I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed more Arabs than
    any
    other group.

    I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to seize control
    of
    Iraq and return it to a terrorist state. I am sorry we don't drop a few
    dozen DaisyCutters on Fallujah.

    I am sorry every time terrorists hide they find a convenient "Holy
    Site."

    I am sorry they didn't apologize for driving a jet into the World Trade
    Center that collapsed and severely damaged St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox
    Church - one of OUR Holy Sites.

    I am sorry they didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole,
    the
    embassy bombings, etc

    I am sorry Michael Moore is American; he could feed a medium sized
    village
    in Africa.

    I am sorry the French are ? French.

    America will get past this latest absurdity. We will punish those
    responsible because that's what we do. We hang out our dirty laundry
    for
    all the world to see. We move on. That's why we are hated so much.
    We
    don't hide this stuff like all those Arab countries that are now
    demanding
    an apology.

    Deep down inside when most Americans saw this reported in the news we
    were
    like .. so what? We lost hundreds and made fun at a few prisoners.
    Sure it
    was wrong, sure it dramatically hurts our cause but until captured we
    were
    trying to kill these same prisoners. Now we're supposed to wring our
    hands
    because a few were humiliated? Our compassion is tempered with the
    vivid
    memories of our own people killed, mutilated and burnt amongst a
    joyous
    crowd of celebrating Fallujans.

    If you want an apology from this American your gonna have a long wait.
    You'll have a better chance of finding those 72 virgins!!!

    If you are "sorry" also, pass it on!!

    Thats why he's an American. Because he's an American he can say and pretty much do what he wants.
    Thats why our brothers are dying in Iraq, died in Vietnam, Died in Korea, WWII, WWI, etc. so he and WE can say and do what we want. Its called Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Speech etc..etc..Its what this country was founded on.
    You may not agree with it but the minute you start to censor and determine who has the right to speak or not, Who has to agree with your political views, your no longer in America and no longer have Freedom. The whole freaking war in Iraq was to give them Freedom..Freedom to elect who they want, freedom to say what they want, etc. If you only want people to agree with your views and have no opposing opinion, live in a dictatorship country.

    BTW, these are MY opinions, you may not agree with MY opinions and I may not agree totally agree with YOUR opinions but thats why were Americans and why we continously fight and give our lives for this Freedom.

    I agree with you, I don't agree with Michael Moore and yeah hes a fat bastard but you are quite right, he has the right to say what he wants to say and if you are censoring him and trying to stop him from saying it you are the unamerican one.

    /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gifthat was kinda cold calling ME, unamerican, I just think Mr Moore needs to stop crying and whining and do something about it, instead he chooses to be insulting and demeaning, and unsupportive of our troops that are definatly in harms way, so to him I say "GO LIVE IN FRANCE WERE YOUR OPINIONS ARE APPRECIATED!!! QUIT BREATHING MY AIR" /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gifYes, very american to spout your opinion. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    sorry, I wasn';t trying to call you unamerican, just kind of using this as an oppurtunity to say censoring the man would be unamerican. Very sorry, don't mean to insult you, and I do realize being called Unamerican is VERY insulting, cause its happened to me before.

    I dont think Sled, nor myself were or meant for our comments to be an attack on you. I was just trying to state that one of the greatest things that makes us Americans is we can openly share differences of opinions and people can either agree or not without being sensored or worse yet...Shot /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    I don't think we are as free as we like to think but thats just a little paranoia in me. I'd like to see you start a militia without the government bothering you big time.

    Well this is where the catch-22 comes in. With the new ways of the world and these crazy SOB's who want to kill us, its difficult to have complete freedom and total security. So there comes a time when you have to weigh how much freedom you can have while protecting the nation. Thats going to be the difficult choice Americans have to make.

    I just don't think the goverment should be dictating what we should and shouldnt do to secure ourselves,IE homeland security laws. If you want a safer america you need to close the borders and I mean closed, then do an internal purge, no citizenship, out you go, and now!!then deal with terrorists swiftly and harshly. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I agree. It is an absolute shame how the government continues to let the illegals cross over the border. That is the one place homeland security still hasnt addressed. If I was a terrorist id be crossing the southern borders with the rest of the 1000's of illegals that come over every month. I just dont understand why they havent addressed that and yet continue to put more resourses into trying to catch the small drug dealers instead /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    Im also curious to see what that new book written by a CIA person says. In the brief interview I saw the Bush admin said the CIA is only suppose to provide info to the leaders and the leaders will interpet (sp?) what it means, the CIA person says so far, the leaders who have no idea how to interpert the information keep getting it wrong /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
