REQUIEM

Below are the two final essays to be posted on Allegiance and Duty Betrayed. The first one is written by a friend -- screen name 'Euro-American Scum' -- who, over the past four years, has been the most faithful essayist here. He has written about everything from his pilgrimage to Normandy in 2004 to take part in the 60th–year commemoration of the invasion, to his memories of his tour in Vietnam. His dedication to America’s founding principles ... and those who have sacrificed to preserve them over the past 200+ years ... is unequaled. Thank you, E-A-S. It has been a privilege to include your writing here, and it is a privilege to call you my friend.

The second essay is my own farewell. And with it I thank all of the many regular visitors, and those who may have only dropped in occasionally, for coming here. I hope you learned something. I hope a seed or two was planted. But, even if not, I thank you for stopping by ... 25 March, 2010

My Two Cents

my two cents 2.jpg

Back before the 2000 election somebody claiming to be a relative of the current POTUS stated that he was related to William T. Sherman. Most folks in the South consider Sherman’s March to be the tide turning event to finish out America’s Civil War, and he garnered a great amount of infamy in doing it, so I stated that he ought not advertise that too much as it might cost him the Southern vote in his bid for the presidency.

As to whether he is or isn’t related I have no idea, but if he is, he should have followed his ancestor’s tactics in prosecuting the current ... ahem ... ”war” we’re engaged in. Sherman understood the necessity of the actions he took and he was unapologetic.

”War is the remedy our enemies have chosen, and I say give them all they want.”And so instead of waging a real war the POTUS, from the outset, has been playing a game of political and military gamesmanship and the “war” has devolved into something I can’t even name. The closest I can come is to calling it a “police action,” though some call it “reconstruction,” and others have even more and different names.

We cripple our military with “rules of engagement” and other nice sounding pleasantries so as to not offend the greater portion of our enemies else they become engaged in the “war”. Well, Sherman also had another quote ...”War is hell.” Are we really supposed to give a rat’s ass if our enemy is offended?

So, Mr. President, though it’s too late by far now, you should have gotten off of your political bipartisan high horse, stopped listening to the panty wastes you had advising you and followed Sherman’s methods a long time ago. If a Civil War analogy can be used then I would say that you’ve become Longstreet and our military is once again being asked to perform Pickett’s Charge. What a waste!

And as for you slime ball, slack jawed, head up your ass idiots in Congress, I have nothing but contempt for the whole lot of you. The few of you, and I do mean FEW, that ARE worth a damn should be screaming bloody murder from the rooftops. Instead you’re all playing the don’t offend anyone/go along to get along game as well. Some of you stupid imbeciles are still so “not over” getting your ass handed to you on the illegal immigration debate that, ONCE AGAIN, you’re garbaging up yet ANOTHER appropriations bill to fund the military with the DREAM Act.

You people are going to drive Americans into the next civil war in America because you’re too thick headed to listen, and then you’re going to be claiming “I didn’t know it would come to this,” as if you really believed it. You’re all like a spoiled brat who is going to have his way no matter what.

People have said for years that “the grownups are now in charge in DC.” Well, they’re idiots because they don’t recognize the lot of you for the petulant children you really are and they also don’t recognize that they’re supposed to be the parent with the belt ready to strap your happy ass when you get out of line!

So the lot of you slime balls in DC keep on playing your little games thinking that most folks don’t understand anything. The vast majority of Americans keep on expecting you to perform like a well-oiled machine, when in reality you’re just a well-rehearsed circus act. Meanwhile the minority is getting ready to pull their belts out of their pant loops and are getting ready to smack your asses. The saddest part is that you’re all too arrogant to even realize it.

Pardon my language, but I feel much better.

I'm agry too, and at the same things, but probably wouldn't have expressed it as well.

Love it.

I share your disgust.

If the average American would start paying attention to what's really going on in Washington (and the rest of the world), and demand that his children be taught the truth instead of p.c. propaganda, we could turn this thing around.

But I plan to stay alive for my children so I won't be holding my breath.

You're a good writer. How about focusing in on one of the ills we're plagued with and getting more specific about what's going wrong and what you'd do about it?

I think you could spark a lively discussion.

As for the slime ball, slack jawed, head up your ass idiots in Congress--

They are nothing like what Congress used to be. The good of the country is the farthest thing from their minds. Their gods are money and agenda.

During his administrations, Bush would probably succeed in the "war against terrorism," especially in Iraq, if he had a Congress behind him, not to mention the mainstream media. But, even with their backing, he is still holding back because of the fear of angering the rest of our enemies, as you said, and the fear of having a negative effect on "world opinion." The hell with both.

"We cripple our military with “rules of engagement” and other nice sounding pleasantries."

You got that right.

We're dealing with an enemy that doesn't even value the lives of their own people, that saws off the heads of innocent people without blinking an eye, and our Congress spends days debating whether water boarding is inhuman.

You don't win a war by fighting bombs and IED's with sticks and stones.

A few random thoughts....

We have rules of engagement so as not to offend the MSM and the political opposition.

There will never be another Civil War in the U.S. The "frog" is in the water, it's boiling, and the "frogs" are interested in Paris Hilton and O.J. Simpson.

The idiots in Washington are not "petulant children" but power hungry egomaniacs more interested in being re-elected and keeping the public ignorant.

I didn't know "War is hell" was Sherman's quote-- always thought it was Patton's (duh!)

I agree with everything you wrote, although we seem to be making major strides in ridding Iraq of al Qaeda-- more in spite of Bush than because of him. God bless the American military.

A beautiful and accurate analogy.
