BUSHWHACKED - TRAITOR BETRAYS MILITARY
By: Alan Stang
As I write, a U.S. Marine in Iraq is under investigation for shooting a wounded, unarmed Iraqi terrorist. The terrorists routinely booby-trap bodies. A Marine was killed by such a booby-trap the day before the shooting; another was killed the same way the very day of the shooting. And the Marine being investigated had been shot in the face the day before the shooting. But none of this apparently is relevant.
A combat marine explains how it really is as follows: "It's a safety issue, pure and simple. After assaulting through a target, we put a security round in everybody's head. Sorry al-Reuters, there's no paddy wagon rolling around Fallujah picking up ‘prisoners’ and offering them a hot cup a joe, falafel, and a blanket. There's no time to dick around on the target. You clear the space, dump the chumps, and moveon.org. Are Corpsman expected to treat wounded terrorists? Negative. Hey libs, worried about the defense budget? Well, it would be waste, fraud, and abuse for a Corpsman to expend one man-minute or a battle dressing on a terrorist. It's much cheaper to just spend the $.02 on a 5.56mm FMJ.
“By the way, in our view, terrorists who chop off civilian's heads are not prisoners, they are carcasses. Chopping off a civilian's head is another reason why these idiots are known as ‘unlawful combatants.’ It seems that most of the world's journalists have forgotten that fact. Let me be very clear about this issue. I have looked around the web, and many people get this concept, but there are some stragglers. Here is your typical Marine sitrep (situation report):
“You just took fire from unlawful combatants (no uniform – breaking every Geneva Convention rule there is) shooting from a religious building attempting to use the sanctuary status of their position as protection. But you're in Fallujah now, and the Marine Corps has decided that they're not playing that game this time. That was Najaf. So you set the mosque on fire and you hose down the terrorists with small arms, launch some AT-4s (Rockets), some 40MM grenades into the building and things quiet down.
“So you run over there, and find some tangos (bad guys) wounded and pretending to be dead. You are aware that suicide martyrdom is like really popular with these idiots, and they think taking some Marines with them would be really cool. So you can either risk your life and your fire team's lives by having them cover you while you bend down and search a guy that you think is pretending to be dead for some reason. Most of the time these are the guys with the grenade or vest made of explosives. Also, you don't know who or what is in the next room. You're already speaking English to the rest of your fire team or squad which lets the terrorist know you are there and you are his enemy.
“You are speaking loud because your hearing is poor from shooting people for several days. So you know that there are many other rooms to enter, and that if anyone is still alive in those rooms, they know that Americans are in the mosque. Meanwhile (3 seconds later), you still have this terrorist (that was just shooting at you from a mosque) playing possum. What do you do? You double tap his head, and you go to the next room, that's what!!!
“What about the Geneva Convention and all that Law of Land Warfare stuff? What about it? Without even addressing the issues at hand, your first thought should be, ‘I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.’
“Bear in mind that this tactic of double tapping a fallen terrorist is a perpetual mindset that is reinforced by experience on a minute by minute basis. Secondly, you are fighting an unlawful combatant in a Sanctuary, which is a double No-No on his part. Third, tactically you are in no position to take ‘prisoners’ because there are more rooms to search and clear, and the behavior of said terrorist indicates that he is up to no good. No good in Fallujah is a very large place and the low end of no good and the high end of no good are fundamentally the same. Marines end up getting hurt or die.
“So there is no compelling reason for you to do anything but double tap this idiot and get on with the mission. If you are a veteran, then everything I have just written is self evident. If you are not a veteran, then at least try to put yourself in the situation. Remember, in Fallujah there is no yesterday, there is no tomorrow, there is only now. RIGHT NOW. Have you ever lived in NOW for a week? It is really, really not easy. If you have never lived in NOW for longer than it takes to finish the big roller coaster at Six Flags, then shut your hole about putting Marines in jail for ‘War Crimes.’”
Recently, one of our preachers preached a message the theme of which was “Now and Then.” Now is what we have here. Then is what Jesus has promised. But in the world our Marines in Iraq inhabit, there is no Then. (Yes, we know there is, but we are talking about a military Then.)
Before a judge sentences a man to death, he retires to his chambers. He cogitates. He considers the facts. He hits the law books. Maybe he consults with other judges. After all that he delivers his ruling. After all that, if he is wrong, the appeals court will correct him. And if the appeals court is wrong, the Supreme Court will correct it.
Now suppose the trial judge only has two seconds, maybe three—yes, three seconds—to decide. Suppose someone will die, whatever he rules. And suppose that, if the judge makes a mistake, if he let’s the wrong man up, he—yes, he, the judge—will die. Why, that’s preposterous, utterly ridiculous. Such an arrangement would never be tolerated.
But that is the situation confronting our Iraqi Marines. And it shouldn’t surprise us. It is the nature of military combat, especially combat against the satanic monsters we face in that country. What is revealing is that the Marine who wrote this helpful report had to do so anonymously. He calls himself “Froggy.” If Washington finds out who he is, he could be on trial himself.
Why? This is the answer that separates the women from the girls. Because George W. Bush is a traitor. Because George W. Bush is a Communist world government traitor. Because George W. Bush has put our men in harm’s way and won’t back them up; because in fact he gives the edge to the enemy.
Consider that because he has just a couple of seconds to decide, our Marine could easily make a mistake. After he “double taps” somebody, he could find out that, hey, the guy was unarmed; he wasn’t booby-trapped. Too bad! But he was there. He wasn’t an innocent bystander. He was a terrorist trying to get to Paradise and our Marine helped him get there. He didn’t know until he arrived that those 47 virgins all have a serious case of the clap – because they are personally recycled by the Prophet – and they’re 74 years old.
He may even have been an “innocent bystander,” in the wrong place at the wrong time. Did we kill any innocent bystanders in World War II? How about millions, all across Europe and Japan? Remember Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Remember the Dresden Fire Bombing, which was worse? All innocent bystanders! There were no military targets in Dresden. Were there any complaints? Hello!
The difference was that WWII was the last war we fought to win. Today, we don’t fight to win, we fight to fight. The true purpose of the war is to be in the war, so simple that many observers are too smart to understand. Traitor Bush is using the war to advance the conspiracy’s scheme to advance the cause of world government.
And our Marine is a pawn in the “managed” conflict. In front of him is the terrorist he must kill to survive. Behind him is the lawyer who would send him to prison. Washington is giving the edge to the enemy, which is killing our Marine. Remember, if our Marine hesitates just one second, worried about the legal ramifications of what he does, he could be dead. Let’s go over this step by step.
· Giving the edge to the enemy is treason.
· The Department of Defense gives the edge to the enemy.
· The Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, serves at the pleasure of the President and does what he says.
· The policy of giving the enemy the edge is Bush’s policy. It is what he wants. If he wants a different policy, he can get it in ten minutes simply by picking up the phone.
· Therefore Bush is committing treason and is a traitor. His war games are more important to him than our Marines."Published originally at EtherZone.com : republication allowed with this notice and hyperlink intact."
