It is said that the lady that wrote this letter is Pam Foster of Pamela Foster and Associates in Atlanta. She's been in business since 1980 doing interior design and home planning. She recently wrote a letter to a family member serving in Iraq.

WHAT'S ALL THE FUSS?

"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 on September 11, 2001?

Were not people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania? Did not three thousand 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 copy of the Koran was "desecrated" when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet? Well, I don't. I don't care at all!

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia.

I'll care when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is brought to justice and then tells the world he is 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 Iraq come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques.

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 American media stops pretending that their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights. I'll care when they acknowledge and respect the rest of the Constitution as just as important.

I'll care when Clinton-appointed judges stop ordering my government to release photos of the abuses at Abu Ghraib, which are sure to set off the Islamic extremists just as Newsweek's lies did a few weeks earlier.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information to save American lives, know this: I don't care.

When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners who have been humiliated in what amounts to a college hazing incident, rest assured that 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 it to the bankthat 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 tax dollars, is complainingthat his holy book is being "mishandled," you can absolutely believe in yourheart of hearts that I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled "Koran" and other times "Quran." Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and -- you guessed it -- I don't care!"

That's "right on" for me. I too,do not care about the above mentioned things. We are treating our"detainees" WAY,WAY, too darned good. The koran,(spelled in small letters for a specific reason) would not be at the top of my,"to be respected list"I'll tell ya. What would be at the top is killin'(not detaining) the BG's and saving American lives. Both civilian and military. During my years in the military,I always kept in the front of my mind,what a famous warrior once said. "Your job is not to die for your country,It's your job to make the other poor SOB die for his country." This holds true in the "war" that we are fighting today.----------

I believe that was Ol' Blood and Guts Patton who said that. Boy, we sure could use someone like him leading the fight against Islamic terrorists.

I printed it

And gave the printed copy to my M In Law & she started calling a few people on the phone & reading it to them.
It was kinda funny hearing it being read "out loud" in her frail, sweet, GrandMotherly type voice. :silly:

I think who we actually need given that being dead isn't a factor, (or a possibly fictitious event, in history) Blackjack Pershing and the following article explains my reasons why.


A True story about General "Black Jack" Pershing.

Born September 13th, 1860 near Laclede, Mississippi
Died July 15th, 1948 in Washington, D.C.
1891 Professor of Military Science and Tactics University of Nebraska
1898 Serves in the Spanish-American War
1901 Awarded rank of Captain
1906 Promoted to rank of Brigadier General
1909 Military Governor of Moro Province, Philippines
1916 Made Major General
1919 Promoted to General of the Armies
1921 Appointed Chief of Staff
1924 Retires from active duty
Education: 4 Years-West Point

One important thing to remember is that Muslims detest pork because they believe pigs are filthy animals. Some of them simply refuse to eat it, while others won't even touch pigs at all, nor any of their by-products. To them, eating or touching a pig, its meat, its blood, etc., is to be instantly barred from paradise and doomed to hell.

Just before World War I, there were a number of terrorist attacks against the United States and it's interests by, you guessed it, Muslim extremists.

So General Pershing captured 50 of the terrorists and had them dig their own graves then had them tied to posts execution style. He then had his men bring in two pigs and slaughter them in front of the now horrified, terrorists.

The soldiers then soaked their bullets in pigs blood, and proceeded to execute 49 of the terrorists by firing squad.

The soldiers then dug a big hole, dumped in the terrorist's bodies and covered them in pig blood, entrails, etc.

They let the 50th man go. And for about the next 42 years, there was not a single attack by a muslim fanatic anywhere in the world.

I could be wrong (it's been known to happen), but I believe that story is more myth than legend.

There were "special solutions" used in the war against the Moros but I cannot confirm that it was Pershing or any other Military commander at the time. There was an Abu Ghrab-type of inquiry back then and soldiers were smart enough to keep their mouth shut about who did what. Still some of the stuff did get out.
One of the tactics I remember reading about was about some officer finding out that the Moros (and most philipinos back then) believed and feared a vampire-like monster that allegedly roamed the countryside for victims. If I remember well, this monster would leave the sign of an eye somewhere as a mark that he was there. US Officers decided to use that myth by capturing known Moro supporters, drain them of their blood and leave this eye sign painted in blood nearby. The result was the philipinos of all types stopped going out at night wherever an "attack" was reported and they could clear a suspected village of people by just painting a red eye on a common wall. Also, by targeting Moro and Moro supporters, it made it difficult for the insurgents to get support from the local populace.

And you would be correct. I did a dogpile search and came up with the following:

Comments: I consulted Dr. Frank E. Vandiver, professor of history at Texas A&M University and author of "Black Jack: The Life and Times of John J. Pershing," to find out if there's any truth to the above, and he responded via email that in his opinion the story is apocryphal. "I never found any indication that it was true in extensive research on his Moro experiences," he wrote. "This kind of thing would have run completely against his character."

Similarly, I been unable to find any evidence corroborating the claim that Muslims believe that "eating or touching a pig, its meat, its blood, etc., is to be instantly barred from paradise and doomed to hell." It is true that Islamic dietary restrictions, like those of Judaism, forbid the eating or handling of pork because pigs are considered unclean. But according to Raeed Tayeh of the American Muslim Association in North America, the notion that a Muslim would be denied entrance to heaven for touching a pig is "ridiculous." A statement from the Anti-Defamation League characterized the claim as an "offensive caricature of Muslim beliefs."


It's really too bad about that last part because I have known about a dozen different snipers who, during the Beirut and Gulf #1 deployments put out the word amongst the populace they were facing that American snipers rolled their rounds in Bacon Fat, thus a kill shot from such a sniper not only guaranteed death but a swift trip to Hell.

Well, heck, most Jihadis are so ignorant about their own pagan religion that I'll bet they believed the urban legend anyway. All I know is that I got a lot of reports from my buddies that certain sectors were known to be very quiet due to active snipers and spotters who were promulgating these stories.
