by someone who cares about our country Friday, Feb. 21, 2003 at 10:16 PM

Regarding all of these anti-war protestors. They do not have a clue what is coming.

People,

I recently received the chain e-mail below.

Though I am fairly certain the individuals propagating

this are well-intentioned, so was an individual named

Nevel Chamberlin, who also believed in "peace in our

time." Nevel looked at Hitler as a man who could be

reasoned with. Nevel never even began to see the true

evil of Hitler's plans. Within a decade of

Chamberlin's policy of appeasement, over 6,000,000

Jews and other "unclean" people had been put to death

by the Nazi regime. Ironically, Chamberlin had no

idea that Hitler would use gas on his victims.

However, this time, we are dealing with a mad man, who

not only rules by terror and tyranny, but he has in

fact used chemical gas on both his enemies (the

Iranians) and his own people (the Kurds).

So, as you yellow-bellied self-sanctified

liberals type away on your computers in reasonable

safety, remember that it wouldn't take much for a

"dirty bomb" or other chemical disbursement delivery

device to be set off in the parking lot of a major

sporting event or other large crowd gathering. If you

think what happened with the twin towers has horrific,

then wait until you hear the horrendous cries of

innocent people suffering from nerve gas exposure.

Wait until you see the results of human skin coming in

contact with blister agents. Wait until terrorists

start blowing themselves up on American soil. Most of

this will probably be captured by our faithful media

in full living (so to speak) color. Maybe, just

maybe, you will understand that there are times when

war is justified.

There is an old saying that “those who do not

study history are doomed to repeat its mistakes.” If

you have never heard, or understood, the story of

Nevel Chamberlin and Adolph Hitler, I urge you to

search the internet and do some investigating. The

situation unfolding today is very similar to what

happened so many years ago. However, this time we are

much more prepared to deal effectively with the

threat.

On a personal note, as a veteran with over 18

years of military service, I can’t say that I am eager

to see people die. Military people always prepare for

war and pray for peace. That said, if I am called, I

will answer. I have taken an oath, a sacred vow to

defend my country against all enemies, both foreign

and domestic. Most of you, who have never had the

honor to serve your country will never fully

understand this concept. Again, I hope that you can

continue to live your lives in relative peace and

security. In the mean time, you can take all your

petty little war protests and shove them where the sun

doesn’t shine! Go join the French for all I care.

They have been stomped twice by evil forces. And

twice we have had to save their buts. I really

wouldn’t mind seeing them get trashed again just to

snap them out of their arrogance. At the very least,

maybe they should tour the graves of the thousands of

Americans who gave their lives to liberate that

country.

If military action is taken, I don’t expect to

see “thousands of Americans coming back in body bags”

as Sadam Hussein has threatened. I expect that you

will see the surgical precision of the previous Gulf

War, with many improvements (as we have had over a

decade to improve our technology). We are not going

after civilians (like Sadam Hussein has), we are going

to neutralize his fighting capability… by whatever

means it takes. Get a clue, get a life! Study

history and learn something. I will leave you with

the words of our last 5-star general, Douglas

MacArthur… "For history teaches with unmistakable

emphasis that appeasement but begets new and bloodier

war. It points to no single instance where the end has

justified that means-where appeasement has led to more

than a sham peace. Like blackmail, it lays the basis

for new and successively greater demands, until, as in

blackmail, violence becomes the only alternative." -

General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur
