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.

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."

God bless that young man. From soldier to servant to the enemy.
This country is rotting from the top down.

Sounds like a Ron Paul statement.

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.
