Warning Very  Graphic Images and Language

I apologize for the use of God‘s Name being taken in Vain

ATTENTION!

To ALL those whining, panty-waisted, pathetic Citizens, it’s time for a little refresher course on exactly why we Americans occasionally have to fight wars to keep this nation great.

See if you can tear yourself away from your “reality” TV and Starbucks for a minute, pull your head out of your ass — and LISTEN UP!!

Abu Ghraib is not “torture” or an “atrocity.”

Got that ?

THIS IS an atrocity!

So Was This!!!

WHICH PART DON’T YOU GET?

Islam Extemists are peaceful people?
My Ass!

Colonel Allen West Speaks Out about Islam


Millions of these warped misled sons-of-bitches are plotting, as we speak, to destroy our country and our way of life any way they can.
Some of them are here among us now.

They don’t want to convert you and don’t want to rule you. They believe you are a vile infestation of Allah’s paradise. They don’t give a shit how “progressive” you are, how peace-loving you are, or how much you sympathize with their cause.

They want your ass dead, and they think it is God’s will for them to do it.

Some think if we give them a hug or listen to them, then they’ll like us, and if you agree -
Then you are a pathetic dumb ass!

If they manage to get their hands on a nuke,chemical agents, or even some anthrax — you will wish to God we had hunted them down and killed THEM while we had the chance.

How many more Americans must be beheaded?
You’ve fallen asleep AGAIN – get your head out of your ass!
You may never get another chance!

NOW GET OFF YOUR SORRY ASS
And pass this on to any and every person you give a damn about – if you ever gave a damn about anything!

DISMISSED!

A Monument to all Our Fallen Soldiers

Little Known Statistics About the Vietnam War Memorial

There are 58,267 names now listed on that polished black wall, including those added in 2010.

Vietnam Veterans Memorial

The names are arranged in the order in which they were taken from us by date, and within each date, the names are alphabetized. It is hard to believe it is 36 years since the last casualties.

Beginning at the apex on panel 1E and going out to the end of the East wall, appearing to recede into the earth (numbered 70E – May 25, 1968), then resuming at the end of the West wall, as the wall emerges from the earth (numbered 70W – continuing May 25, 1968) and ending with a date in 1975.Thus, the war’s beginning and end meet. The war is complete, coming full circle, yet broken by the earth that bounds the angle’s open side and contained within the earth itself. The first known casualty was Richard B. Fitzgibbon, of North Weymouth , Mass. Listed by the U.S. Department of Defense as having been killed on June 8, 1956. His name is listed on the Wall with that of his son,
Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Richard B. Fitzgibbon III, who was killed on Sept. 7, 1965.

There are three sets of fathers and sons on the Wall.

39,996 on the Wall were just 22 or younger.

8,283 were just 19 years old.

The largest age group, 33,103 were 18 years old.

12 soldiers on the Wall were 17 years old.

5 soldiers on the Wall were 16 years old.

One soldier, PFC Dan Bullock was 15 years old.

997 soldiers were killed on their first day in Vietnam .

1,448 soldiers were killed on their last day in Vietnam .

31 sets of brothers are on the Wall.

31 sets of parents lost 2 of their sons.

54 soldiers attended Thomas Edison High School in Philadelphia .

I wonder why so many from one school?

8 Women are on the Wall. Nursing the wounded.

244 soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War;
153 of them are on the Wall.

Beallsville, Ohio with a population of 475, lost 6 of her sons.

West Virginia had the highest casualty rate per capita in the nation.There are 711 West Virginians on the Wall.

The Marines of Morenci – They led some of the scrappiest high school football and basketball teams that the little Arizona copper town of Morenci (pop. 5,058) had ever known and cheered. They enjoyed roaring beer busts. In quieter moments, they rode horses along the Coronado Trail, stalked deer in the Apache National Forest . And in the patriotic camaraderie typical of Morenci’s mining families, the nine graduates of Morenci High enlisted as a group in the Marine Corps.

Their service began on Independence Day, 1966.
Only 3 returned home.

The Buddies of Midvale – LeRoy Tafoya, Jimmy Martinez, & Tom Gonzales were all boyhood friends and lived on three consecutive streets in Midvale, Utah on Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Avenues. They lived only a few yards apart. They played ball at the adjacent sandlot ball field. And they all went to Vietnam .

In a span of 16 dark days in late 1967, all three would be killed.
LeRoy was killed on Wednesday, Nov. 22, the fourth anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

Jimmy died less than 24 hours later on Thanksgiving Day. Tom was shot dead assaulting the enemy on December 7, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

The most casualty deaths for a single day was on January 31, 1968 ~ 245 deaths.

The most casualty deaths for a single month was May 1968 – 2,415 casualties were incurred.

For most Americans who read this, they will only see the numbers that the Vietnam War created. To those of us who survived the war, and to the families of those who did not, we see the faces, we feel the pain that these numbers created.We are, until we too pass away, haunted with these numbers, because they were our friends, fathers, husbands, wives, sons and daughters.

There are no noble wars, just noble warriors.

Jimmy Carter Sends Condolence Letter to Kim Jong Il’s Son, North Korean Media Reports

Former President Jimmy Carter reportedly sent a personal condolence letter to the son of Kim Jong Il, the late North Korean leader who presided over one of the most repressive dictatorships in the world. 

The state-run Korean Central News Agency claimed that the former U.S. president sent “a message of condolences” to Kim Jong Un, the son tapped to succeed Kim Jong Il at the helm of the communist state. The news agency said Carter wished the next leader of North Korea “every success as he assumes his new responsibility of leadership, looking forward to another visit to (North Korea) in the future.” 

A representative for Carter so far has not returned a request for comment on whether the KCNA account was accurate.
