  • Lake view: The guts to say your position

  • Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we?

    Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores in July 2002, and in New York Sept. 11, 2001, and have continually threatened to do so again sin

  • Just thought I would share:
    The following was written by a British housewife to her daily newspaper. It’s highly politically incorrect, but how true and courageous! Ever notice how some people just seem to know how to write a letter? Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister! Her letter reads as follows:
    Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we?
    Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores in July 2002, and in New York Sept. 11, 2001, and have continually threatened to do so again since?
    Were people from all over the world not brutally murdered that day in Washington, and in downtown Manhattan, and in a field in Pennsylvania?
    Did nearly 3,000 men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?
    And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency.
    I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan.
    I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.
    I'll care when the cowardly so-called “insurgents” in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques and behind women and children.
    I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of Nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.
    I'll care when the British media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.
    In the meantime, when I hear a story about a British soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care.
    When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take this to the bank: I don't care.
    When I hear that a prisoner - who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and “fed special food” that is paid for by my taxes - is complaining that his holy book is being “mishandled”, you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts: I don't care.
    Page 2 of 2 - And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled Koran and other times Quran. Well, believe me, you've guessed it: I don't care.
    If you don't agree, then by all means don't complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great country!
    And may I add: Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. Our soldiers don't have that problem.
    I have another quote:
    ‘Only six defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The British Soldier.
    3. The Canadian Soldier.
    4. The U.S. Soldier
    5. The New Zealand Soldier, and
    6. The Australian Soldier
    One died for your soul, the other five for your freedom.
    Many seem to forget about all of them! Amen!
    Give this lady a standing ovation.
    Isn't it interesting that many people in the Western World feel this way but don’t have the guts to state the situation or do anything to help correct these atrocities? Where are our leaders?
