Random Thoughts in the Wake of the Elections, Part 5

I found this earlier today -- the comments of a soldier sent to Radio Talk Show Host Rusty Humphries. I've heard Humphries a few times, but don't know much about him, as he's not broadcast in my area. Regardless, thanks to him for making public this letter, and visit his site at

Thoughts on the Election Results from a Soldier in Iraq
Dear Rusty,
I know you probably get a lot of messages asking you to read stuff on your show, but I BEG you to read this...... I would like you to tell America exactly what they did to their soldiers on Tuesday, and what WE think about our countrymen right now. "I hope you are satisfied with what you have done...

Today in the mess hall, where there is usually jovial conversation, there was silence, long faces, and broken spirits... Everyone, to include all American soldiers, marines, sailors, airmen, Iraqi Nationals, Bulgarian Soldiers, etc, etc... was speechless, tired, demoralized and stunned.... all ate in erie silence.....

Last night, while we watched the press conference with the President, there was utter discust, and the common feeling amongst us all that we soldiers are now the loneliest people on Earth.... we fight an enemy over here, and we have a country full of enemies to go home to that are our countrymen. We watched President Bush say his own political funeral, our commander and chief.. as well as ours..... He tried so hard to spin it, but... well.. there is no way to soften such a morale blow.

While you sit and Monday morning quarterback what we work so hard to do for you out here, just know that the spirit of your team is wounded..... YOU liberals, you America have done a great job of demoralizing us... Thank you.

Do us a favor though, when we do come home, spare us the ceremony....... We all now know that it is a bunch of crap, and what you think of us.......

I have to say that right now, I would rather be a pussy ass Frenchman, even though they have no will to fight, at least they have the balls to make a decision and stick with it...... They stuck to thier guns about staying out of this war, even if it was the wrong decision......America on the other hand, goes off half cocked, and when the decision appears to be a hard one, or something that might cost a little bit, they turn tail and run.....


This week I am NOT proud to say that I am an American..........I think it is obvious why... See, we just have told the world that we are not a nation of people who are tough, and will fight for what we believe in... We have told the world that we are a giant coward that will shy away from any difficult challenge...

So, while you eat your cheetos, and sit there and watch your lazy ass get fatter, dumber and happier Joe Citizen.. Just remember this, I, and all my commrades payed a dear price to come this far and have you decide that we should fail...

Realize this, because of your action this week America.... do not expect so many men to be so willing to stand up for your next little whim just to be cut down in the middle of it all............

Realize this also.. you have just put a heavy price on the heads of us all...... Now that we are branded as cowards, we are an easy target, oh so inviting for the taking....... I swore to protect your children in your beds.... yet you fling the door wide open inspite of me to invite the scourge.... Well.... have it your way then.

Because of this, September 11th will soon be overshadowed by these same enemies.. my advice to you is get your lazy, self centered ass up and make peace with your God, and your family.. cause, time will come when they may not be there for you................Because you kicked me in the teeth, and so many others, I know I won't any more.. "


As heard on the Rusty Humphries Show
My only comment to this soldier -- and the MANY like him -- is, I'm sorry.
I was a child during the Vietnam Era. I had a cousin and an uncle in 'Nam. I saw the news reports, and the protests, and the so-called "peace movement." I saw how the Vets were maligned, spat-upon, called "baby-killers," and were ignored as though our nation was ashamed of them after they got home. I swore then, even as a child, as I watched my Father shake his head painfully -- that this would NEVER again happen to those who would willingly DIE for their country. Now I find that the majority of American people either oppose my vow, or are too stupid to realize the danger of those who do.
I strive to be a peaceful man. I am not a violent, mean or vicious person. I do love the truth, however, and I will stand up for it. And I DO appreciate the sacrifice of these men and women who VOLUNTEERED to defend us -- and who've now been "kicked in the teeth." Well, rest assured, if I ever see them abused in my presence, they won't stand alone, and this is one old, fat preacher boy who'll set straight the hate-mongers who would defame our military while hiding behind the MASK of "peacenik."
Bless you, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, Coast Gaurdsmen, et. al. You deserve FAR MORE respect than this sorry nation (or at least its LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC majority) would ever give you.
