Here is an email I received in response to one of my essays.
ok so i was forwarded a link to your page from my best friend hoo happens to be a military wife… Probably Maria Fletcher. her husband is my husband’s best friend… and we take great offense not only to what you previously posted on your web page about our men and women who are serving, but also in what you responded back to her, after recieving her email.
so first of all you arrogant jerk, what do you know about being a soldier? what do you know about defending someone you love? about defending yourself? your country?
I know considerably more than you do, apparently. You seem to be totally unaware that her husband is committing a capital (i.e. death penalty by hanging) international war crime by aiding and abetting an illegal aggressive war. Read up on the war crimes trials at Nuremberg at the end of WWII (World War II) if you doubt me. From the way you express yourself, I would hazard a guess you have not read even one book on the Iraq war. You are rather over-confident for someone so ignorant.
The invasion and occupation of Iraq is illegal.
~ Kofi Annan (born:1938-04-08 age:78)Secretary General and Boutros Boutros-Ghali (born:1922-11-14 died:2016-02-16 at age:93) former Secretary General of the U.N.
I think in this case international law stood in the way of doing the right thing.
~ Richard Perle (born:1941-09-16 age:75), 2003-11-20, Pentagon hawk, cat-stroking, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, James Bond villain pasty lookalike, admitting the Iraq war is illegal.
i am sure not a damn thing, cause if you did, you would not be arrogantly throwing out your shallow opinions at other people, those that have the courage to stand for what they believe in, those who honor their families and countries… and for their spouses who choose to support them and wait for them as they make this perilous journey. what have you ever done that could compare to what they have been through? what have you ever seen that could compare to what they have seen?
There is nothing honorable in killing people for delusions such as yours. The USA attacked Iraq, not the reverse. It attacked unproved. It attacked on false pretences. Iraq is no threat to the USA. Your country is engaged in a $13.5 trillion oil theft. The war is illegal.
again i am sure not a damn thing because you sir/madame sound like a damn coward…hiding behind your books, your t.v. shows and your interviews of (so many) military men, all who just happen to have the same opinion (according to you) that its like playing a video game and thats its fun killing others.
You remind me of Maggie Smith in Private Function demanding her husband Michael Pallin get up the nerve to slaughter a pig. I am not a cannibal. There is no reason to kill Iraqis. I refrain from killing them because not out of cowardice, but because there is no need to and further killing people, even Muslims, is wrong. You claim to be Christian yet you blithely ignore the prime commandment, Thou shalt not kill. You seem to be demanding I exterminate Iraqis for you because like cockroaches, they make you uncomfortable. I have news. They are fully human, with even more right to life than you. You forfeited your moral right to live when you started your bloodthirsty demands for innocent Iraqi life, without valid cause. The irony is, you will probably live to 100, smugly imagining yourself saintly. You are worse than the Taliban. You condemned to death hundreds of thousands of children based on nothing more than a rumour, a rumour you and your friends made absolutely no effort to check out. I am not hiding in the least. Unlike you, I back up my assertions. You just spew from your gut and presume your gut must be right because that is what you wish were true.
No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.
~ Voltaire (born:1694-11-21 died:1778-05-30 at age:83) [François Marie d’Arouet Voltaire]
tell me you canadian ass, have you ever in your supposed interview, seen a soldier cry because he misses his family, or because he was not here to see his child born?
I have pointed out that as one of the many disadvantages of enlisting. I have also pointed there has to be something extremely sick about someone who choses to hunt innocent humans just the same.
have you ever watched him/her weep for friends they watched die, or because they helped save some innocent poor soul in iraq that could not save themselves?
have you ever watched on t.v. and seen a soldier carrying a child to safety, or help hide a family that may have been killed, captured, or left to die?
Soldiers are not physicians. They are trained to kill, not save lives. You have been exposed to too much propaganda and possibly bullshit excuses from Corey for his sadistic serial killing spree.
and again i am certain in your arrogant ways your answer would still remain no.
you want to post all these findings that you have established, but tell me have you lived any of it, have you walked a true day in their shoes?
no, you have not because you are a selfish coward who can not and will not give of yourself.
Read a bit about me before you express your certainty.
you can go around all you want to expressing your views on our men, because you will never have the power to bring them down!!!!!
I don’t want to bring them down. I want them to stop their criminal activity. Soldiers are supposed to defend their country, not attack other people’s.
they stand for thier country, their family, their god and for people like you, so that you may live in and enjoy freedom.
Nonsense! Your freedom is not in the least threatened by some Iraqi peasant making an average of a month. Your country has a military bigger than all the other militaries of earth put together. Iraq has no planes, tanks, ships or even an army. They defend against your invasion with bombs they make in their kitchens. If you fear them, you are suffering clinical paranoia. That fear is probably really your guilty conscience. You Americans deserve to have your throats slit for what you have done. The Iraqis obviously wish that revenge on you, but have no way to execute it.
so keep trash talking if you want because you are no where near them, you never were and you never will be.
they are and always will be better than you!
and in closing i would like to say to you: i hope that canada never sees or feels the things that the american people felt on 2001-09-11, when we were brutally attacked and our citizens (men, women and children) were killed, when families were torn apart because of the lose of a loved one… i hope you or your country never have to expierence that.
But Iraq had nothing to do with 2001-09-11.
We have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the September 11th attacks.
~ George W. Bush (born:1946-07-06 age:70),, 2003-09-17, audio.
All kinds of people in the administration have echoed that if you don’t believe your president. Are you not ashamed of yourself for murdering the wrong people in your blind rage over 2001-09-11?
Even if Saddam had some hand in 2001-09-11, your reaction, levelling Iraq with $3 trillion worth of mayhem, killing mostly children who could not possibly have had anything at all to do with any plot is degenerate. You are evil and perverted. You deserve to be tortured to death for what you have done. What anaesthetized your conscience? You cheer crimes even the Nazis thought too inhumane including torture and banned weapons such as napalm, white phosphorus, cluster bombs and land mines, not to mention completely ignoring the Geneva Conventions as quaint. 2001-09-11 was a pinprick in comparison.
If I were you, I would not do any praying. If you bring yourself to God’s attention, he may give the severe swat you so deserve for your vile, ill-considered, ignorant, excessive revenge.
and i hope that you country never has to depend on a coward like you to stand up to defend it because it would fall.
Nobody has attacked the USA or Canada since WWII. You lost two buildings on 2001-09-11. There is plenty of evidence it was an inside job, nothing to do with anyone in the middle east. Consider Iraq has killed not one American civilian (not counting mercenaries), even though your country has killed about 2 million of theirs. Defend my ass! That is like a street thug pleading self-defence over an old lady hitting him over the head with her purse when he tried to steal it.
god bless america!!!!!!!
Nazis crowed Gott Mitt Uns too, but God does not reputedly condone murder or theft.
god bless our troops!!!!
You might as well say God bless serial murderers and war criminals. They need it.
corey we love you from the bottoms of our hearts and we thank you for defending our freedom!!!!
Presumably Corey is some soldier mindlessly killing the Iraqi people claiming this helps them. It is rather perverse, blessing murder.
You remind me so much of the chaplain in George Bernard Shaw’s St. Joan. Chaplain de Stogumber was a man who blood-thirstily cheer lead for burning Joan of Arc on the stake, but when he got his way and saw what burning alive was like, he was overcome with inconsolable guilt. Your problem, like his, is you have no imagination. You are wilfully ignorant.
I let them do it. If I had known, I would have torn her from their hands. You don’t know: you havnt seen: it is so easy to talk when you dont know. You madden yourself with words: you damn yourself because it feels grand to throw oil on the flaming hell of your own temper. But when it is brought home to you; when you see the thing you have done; when it is blinding your eyes, stifling your nostrils, tearing your heart, then — then — [Falling on his knees] O God, take away this sight from me! O Christ, deliver me from this fire that is consuming me! She cried to Thee in the midst of it: Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! She is in Thy bosom; and I am in hell for evermore.
~ George Bernard Shaw (born:1856-07-26 died:1950-11-02 at age:94), St. Joan The Chaplain de Stogumber after viewing Joan of Arc consumed by flames as he had demanded.
so you think we deserve to have our throats cut (we americans) you who wholly stands against violence.
Of course, you deserve to have you throat slit, though not all Americans do. You and your friends have killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people, mostly children. Of course, you too deserve to die and in the most grisly ways imaginable. The penalty for killing even one child in the USA is death. However, I am not about to even break your arm, much less kill you. There is no contradiction. I am merely trying to get you stop this mindless killing by trying to get you to understand just how wrong what you are doing is.
we let me tell you something… you arogant bastard, you seem to think you know so much more than someone who has actually served in iraq… you know so much more, bacause you read a book based on someone else’s view and opinion..you tell me i am uneducated on what is going on…i say screw you.
You are such a clueless twit you don’t even know how to unstick your CapsLock key. You’ think you were composing telegrams. Not a book, dozens of books. Also hundreds of newspaper articles. Also dozens of interviews. You have not been to Iraq, so you too get all your information second hand. However, you get it only from some very biased sources, the murderers themselves, like Corey, who are going to lie through their teeth to put themselves in the best possible light. Corey is a witless twit. If you or he had the vaguest inkling about the politics behind the war, he would not be spouting these irrelevant excuses for killing innocent people. People like Corey who have served in Iraq know all about how the US is killing people, but nothing more than anyone else about why. Those decisions are made in Washington. He has submitted himself to brainwashing and non-stop US military propaganda designed to make him kill without thinking. He is your least informed citizen. Further, he is extremely biased. He joined up to slake his dark desires. He will make up any stupid excuse for his behaviour and try to sell it to you. In contrast, I seek out information from every part of the political spectrum, including foreign sources, to get the big picture. You remind me of the mother on an accused accomplice to a serial killer who said, I asked him if he did it. He said ‘no’. That is good enough for me. He is an obedient boy.
i have read books and such and watched the news, etc. on this war…
I don’t believe you. Your spelling is so atrocious you could not read above an elementary school level. Please name some of these books you have read. I will give you a quiz on them to let you demonstrate your deep knowledge.
i also have friends and family who are serving (and yes, your oh so smart… cause one of them is corey… and heres another point for you, you figured out that maria fletcher is my best friend… remind me you need a cookie. )
Since when is killing people who did not attack you, serving anyone?
but on to more important things than your intelligence… i will continue to pray and yes i did say pray because yes i am a christian, yes i do believe in god, yes i do believe in the bible (his word) and you can post all you want to that i don’t or whatever you said because you don’t matter… i know where my life and my salvation stand… maybe you should check on yours.
Your bible says you must not kill people. Surely that includes killing children, includes people who did not attack you and people you attacked on false pretences. On what grounds do you excuse your amnesia?
also you stated that 2001-09-11 was an inside job, that we only lost 2 buildings… why don’t you go read a book about that, and get your facts straight… we lost the towers, we lost the pentagon (but those can be replaced), what can’t be replaced is the countless men, women and children we lost… the souls of those who were innocent, who never heard of much less knew he, osama bin laden or the talaban existed. they can never be replaced. their families can never be the same without them.
There were not countless lives lost, about 3000. To put it in perspective about 44,000 people die each year in traffic fatalities in the USA. The Pentagon was not lost. Britain sustained 2001-09-11 level attacks every night in WWII. The bombing of Iraq is tens of thousands of greater damage than 2001-09-11. Americans make far too big a deal of 2001-09-11. It is nothing compared to the havoc it has reigned on others. Of course, it is a horrible event, but by no means the most horrible in history. It had such psychological impact because the attack was shown over and over thousands of times on the media. It registered as a much greater catastrophe than it really was. I have read quite a few books on 2001-09-11 and come up with a physics argument to prove the Bush story of the collapse of the twin towers cannot possibly be true. I somehow doubt you were paying much attention in your physics class if you even made it that far, so you likely will not appreciate the argument.
so yes we are defending our nation for a reason, you can post as many ignorant and arrogant things on your website as you would like, you can continue to dilude yourself and twist truths to fit what you believe… but at the end of each and everyday the truth will still be the truth… no matter who tries to change it.
You are the one twisting and ignoring the evidence, not me. Then provide any evidence you please that Iraq attacked the USA. If you find any, be sure to pass it on to George W. Bush. He desperately needs it to salvage his reputation.
We have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the September 11th attacks.
~ George W. Bush (born:1946-07-06 age:70),, 2003-09-17, audio.
so go ahead continue to tell me and others that we are uneducated, that we don’t read, that we are killers, that we deserve to die and all that other ignorant things you post.
If you kill innocent people, you deserve to die, even if you harbour commonly-held paranoid delusion The legal test is, do you know that killing is wrong.
you want see me crying over it because just as i told you before about our soldiers, you never were, nor will you ever be as great as they are… you will never be 1/2 of the person they are.
Why is someone who mindlessly kills, in your estimation, a greater person than someone who tries to stop them?
you will never be as great as an american, you don’t make us who we are and you can’t bring us down!
That sort of national boosterism is that got the Germans into so much trouble. Where in the bible did it tell you that such overweening pride was acceptable? I am not trying to bring you down. I am trying to stop you from killing innocent people and stealing resources from small third world nations.
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
~ Ezekiel 16:49
god bless america!!!!
god bless our troops!!!!!
In other words:
kill their kids! sis boom bah!
rape their women! rah rah rah!
Psychologists term what you are doing emotional reasoning. You look to your guts to discover how something feels and from that sensation, you decide if it is true. Facts and reason to you, are irrelevant. It is telling that you did not present any facts or reasons in your emails. It is also telling that you claim to be a Christian though you reject Jesus’ teachings. The logical inconsistency does not trouble you in the least. All you did was throw epithets at me for not agreeing with your guts, as if they were some infallible oracle. That approach is not in the least persuasive to a scientifically minded fellow like myself. You might successfully browbeat your child that way, but not a fellow adult. The net result is I feel extreme contempt for you and your ignorance that you work so hard to maintain.
I despair that someone such as you could even exist. How on earth could anyone be in favour of butchering innocent children? Yet, you are.
