    Some of you might be tired of me posting emails my old man sends me from the war. Too freaking bad.
    I find this one in particular, extreamly good. Feel free to pass it on to others.

    DUKE, Thanks for the kind words, doing something you love is easy. Being a Dad is the greatest blessing in my life and I loved it very much, just goes by so fast.
    Things are going well at this end, still not a clue when I will be home, but I will make it home and that's all that matters.
    As far as anti-military or anti-war folks go, they have a right to think and say what they like, one of the rules to leadership is "you can not hold the gutless accountability" many people are young and labeling them gutless may be a bit harsh, they have time to learn. Most folks lack vision and do not understand "why we fight" I and most military people fight for our kids, grandkids and their kids grandchildren, most folks can not see that far down the road. If things do not effect them directly and they do not have the moral courage to give of them self's to help people who may not deserve to be helped, this is Americas greatest strength. Say we let Hitler have his ways with the Jews, what's the big deal, how was that going to effect our lives, over 1/2 of America did not think we should join the war in 1941....what kind of people would we be today if we sat back and let hittler have his way, would we still have our freedom, did the over 50% who did not want the war think hittler was going to stop with the Jews? Auguring with people with no vision or concern for other than themselves (this is the true test of people with no moral courage) I for one am glad not every American understands the need for war and lacks vision, theses folks serve a purpose to make us stop and think before we jump. Will Rogers once said "You never convince people by auguring----you convince them by your example" Time and our example will win the argument of this war, it will take time and not all will be convinced...hell their are still people who believe hittler never killed Jews and that man has never walked on the moon. Some or most folks protest against things just so their voice can be heard and to stand out, not because they believe in what they are saying. Set the right example, do not lower yourself to their level or waist time with the gutless or people with lack of vision, they will just slow you down and knock you off course.
    I for one was hoping the french would defend sadom, if they think America is wrong they should stand-up and fight for what they believe in, but they stand on the sidelines like other gutless people watching people with moral courage and vision who are willing by their actions---not words to make the world a better place for all people and not just themselves.

    And you sir have posted one of the best idiotic responses of the day. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm sure it would really pain you to actually come up with some independant thoughts and opinions on your own without refering to Socialist World Workers' Pinko Communist Lay Down our Freedoms and Ideals to some Pot Smoking Living off Mommy and Daddy Going to College and Have Absolutely No Clue to Reality Fawktard Student Website.

    And before this turns uglier than a mudfence in less than 3 posts, are you insuniating that our troops are mindless drones who only follow immoral orders and have no intelligence?

    You manage to piss alot of people off. For the most part i never cared, in fact you responces have been consistant and grounded, regardless how much everyone dissagreed.

    This one, besides taking a cheep shot at my own dad, is plain stupid. I can assure you my father did not have to go. Anyone in the armed forces know a Cheif Master Sergent dosent have to, and normal dosent. He is a firm believer in our country and knows ( in absolute terms, knows what is going on over there ) what needs to be done. If it is propaganda it is from the source, not a regurgitation. My father is not a mindless drone manipulated by our government, he is a fine example of what america is.

    I know it must upset you to know people have figured you out, as the gutless bystander. You, like the french, would rather not get involved, be it in war or $25 dollars to join this site. You my friend rather crisize and make comments from the sidelines, claim its your right ( that is true ) yet do nothing nothing to protect your so called rights.

    I will make nothing short of it. If you where a tangable person in front of me, saying this crap to my face, I would F*&^%ing punch you in the head. Now i relize that Ck5 is a better place than this, and threats like this shouldnt be tollorated, however, not only in honor of my father but my country you deserve it.

    if you feel this needs to be discused further, pm me i will give you my adress and we can do it here. Otherwise piss off and never reply to one of my post again.

    over. done. finished. last word. this isnt what the site is for.

    You know M J........that's pretty FAWKED UP!!!!! Duke is a PAYING MEMBER that is really proud of his DAD......and for DAMN GOOD REASON!! He's not spelling out any propaganda and he's simply relaying the words of wisdom from his BRAVE father that isn't afraid to fight for what he believes in!!!!! I find it extremely bad taste to bad talk any member of the US Armed Forces, but to bad talk him to his son is LOW !!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
