Earlier this week, the Commandant of the Marine Corps sent out a message to his commands stating all is going according to plan in Afghanistan, despite a rash of Americans being slain in cold blood by the Afghans we are supposedly allied with and training. On Wednesday, the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, USMC General John Allen, issued a statement essentially excusing the killers for these acts, attributing them to stress, summer heat and to American troops being culturally insensitive. As was the case with the Commandant's message, I'm not buying this one either.

Unfreakinbelievable. Do we have any sense at all?

The part I highlighted above was the essence of the Commandant's message earlier this week.

I received a message earlier today from one of my package recipients, a Tennessee Marine lance corporal right in the middle of this mess. His thoughts carry a lot more weight with me, and should with all Americans, than the platitudes of generals, presidents, and political candidates who are not at risk.

"...Yeah the attacks have been insane around here and its sickening now. We don't even hardly go out now because the threat is so high. It really boggles my mind as to how they ask for help but then shoot us. Honestly it doesn't stress me out because I've come to peace with it but if its gonna happen its gonna happen. You can't change destiny or fate and if its your card getting pulled then it is what it is."

I don't quite know what to say about that except that if I did speak my mind about the way this country is turning a blind eye to our military, I'd be arrested.

I said "Soldier" when referring to a Marine. That is incorrect.

I should have thought about my comment more rather than simply using an "S" word to pair with "Servant".

No disrespect intended to any Marine.

My apologies.

no offense taken by any of us... We jarheads have been called much worse. You can share a "fighting hole" (we don't call them foxholes) with me anytime. Let's hope it doesn't come to that though.

The Marine in question would have been so pleased to know that SOMEONE took an interest in their shameful plight that no offence would have been taken. He'd also be the first to tell you that our soldiers are in exactly the same situation. What bothers them all at least as much as the danger and misery they're enduring daily is that 99% of the Americans they are defending do not know, do not want to know, and do not remotely care about them.

We can start a new thread if you like, I do not want to show disrespect for our troops. But it is a fact, Ron Paul blames the US for 911.
