Thought you might like to read this letter to the editor of a British
national newspaper. Ever notice how some people just seem to know
how to write a letter?.


Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister!


Written by a housewife, to her daily newspaper. This is one ticked off
lady.

Dear Mr Editor

'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 112001 and have continually threatened to do so
since?

Were
people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day in London, and in downtown Manhattan , and in a field in
Pennsylvania ?

Did
nearly 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 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
start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11 and 7/7.

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.

And
oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and
other times 'Quran.' Well, believe me!! you guessed it
......

I don't care!!

If
you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail
friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for
this ridiculous behaviour!

If
you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you
choose the latter, then please 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 that I would like to add, AND.......I hope you
forward all this.

Only six defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

1.
Jesus Christ

2.
The British Soldier.

3.
The Canadian Soldier.

4.
The US Soldier,

5.
The Australian Soldier and

6
The New Zealand Soldier


One
died for your soul, the other 5 for your freedom.

YOU
MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET ABOUT ALL OF
THEM.


AMEN!

Wow, that's tough to read. You might want to learn to parse quotes.

In a related matter, I think revenge is a dumb idea for basis for foreign policy. The dead... are dead. They don't care anymore, because they're dead. Let me remind you that dead Iraquis are also just as dead, and the overwhelming majority of the Iraqui dead are with us no more simply because they happened to be standing where they were when the bomb went off. If we were killing these people deliberately, it would be called genocide. Do you wish to be advocating for genocide? We have it on good authority that is tantamount to evil personified. Think for a second, willya?

By the bye, Jesus has been pretty well dead for some two thousand years. What does he have to do with the war in Southwest Asia, again?

We're in Afghanistan together currently, so I'd say, yeah.

And this time we're on the same side as the Germans and the French?

While we're at it, aren't we fighting the same people that beat the Russians?

So, are we on the same side as the Russians too?

I stand corrected .

On only one count, methinks. On the other, I suspect we are in complete agreement!

Mind you, it's only what one would expect from the Daily Mail - a paper that is pretty much a joke over here but much beloved by right wing Americans scouring the internet for quotes. The writer of that letter had obviously been looking at American right wing stuff as well, as I have seen pretty much everything it contains several times before, not least on here. Nothing in it is original.

you guys are hilarious,

maybe I should have added the above contains no words written by me ,

the general sentiments were worth repeating though I thought ,

I think it is about the huge pile of steaming horse manure that we all have to wade through on a daily basis . Political correctness and puritanical BS .

then of course comith the retied school teachers and conspirators :)

Did the correspondent supply a name and address? I tried searching the Mails web site but like their journalism, it is not of the best (think Fox News for the middle aged Conservative wife) and could not find the letters page. I would not have put it past the editor to have had a junior journalist write the piece to fill up some spare column inches.

I am pretty sure that this is a fake letter, making the rounds through the email.

Lowering one's self to the level of the enemy can be pretty tempting for the weak minded.

You're lucky enough your country can afford planes and bombs and long range missiles. Much cleaner and easier on the conscience than strapping a bomb on yourself. Sure innocent women, children and men die, but the important thing is that they're merely collateral damage and don't count.

why I dont care....

Saturday 7 August 2010

"
A female British doctor is feared to be among at least 10 people murdered by gunmen in the far north of Afghanistan (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/afghanistan) on Friday.
The group included eight foreigners – one of them a Briton – six Americans and a German working for a project run by a small Christian aid organization called International Assistance Mission (IAM).
A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility saying the attack was on "Christian missionaries" who were carrying bibles. It is possible the Taliban were simply exploiting early media reports about killings they in fact had nothing to do with."

Actually , my country doesnt have an air force attack capability ,bombs or missiles.

If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends.

Then, regardless of the content, you should automatically hit delete. Otherwise the temptation to post it on a public forum and make a total arse of yourself will be too great.
