Vets and service members, what about it?
You know, we try to be so politically correct that it's going to bite us in the hurts. Here's the text of what I wrote my congressman today. Check the link out which I referenced. So as to not offend anyone on the board, I have removed reference to any particular group.
Dear Congressman ____________:
I am writing today because of and in response to an editorial I read online. It appeared in yesterday's (11-2-06, http://www.investors.com/editorial/e...47363882578735) Investors Business Daily, and was especially disturbing in light of the reading and research I have been doing into the nature of (fill in the blank). After the election is over (and I pray to God you win) perhaps I can discuss this with you personally. Nevertheless, the editorial correctly assessed the issue of allowing the construction of a (structure) at West Point.
We here of Western world view fail to comprehend what a (structure)to be. Blithely we presume it is just another church as we experientially understand a church to be. Nothing could be further from the truth, though some commonality can be ascribed.
Presently on point, I am reading a booklet written by a former (fill in the blank) jurist with over fifteen years training in (fill in the blank) law. He has appeared and testified before both Parliament and Congress. The text is entitled, “The (fill in the blank) and Its Role in Society." This work and (fill in the blank) and Terrorism: What the (book) Really Teaches About Christianity, Violence and the Goals of the (fill in the blank) (struggle), by Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D. – a former teacher of (fill in the blank) history at Al-Azhar University, Cairo – create quite the exposé. To encapsulate, the mainline (fill in the blank) goal is the (fill in the blank) -ization of the whole world. The Machiavellian principle, “the ends justify the means,” is a firmly held principle within the (fill in the blank) tenants, and the (structure) is the training ground for this mind-set as well as the political, social, economic, and religious overthrow of what ever host country in which it finds itself. (Albeit in a predominantly (fill in the blank) country, its goal is to further entrench itself by fully implementing the (fill in the blank) state and (their kind of legal system's) law.)
Now is not the time to further open up our land to this system of belief, much less allow its presence on the institutional training ground of the United States Army. If there is some way to put this plan on hold and have reasoned deliberation in the Congress on this issue, I believe it would go a long way to dispel what will be characterized as a digression from political correctness and tolerance. Instead, it would do good to unmask the enemy and its tactics.
