*If this is a dupe, my apologies - I would check to see if this was posted before but I am deploying soon.
WHAT'S ALL THE FUSS?
The lady that wrote this letter is Pam Foster of Pamela
Foster and Associates in Atlanta. She's been in business since 1980
doing interior design and home planning. She recently wrote a letter to
a family member serving in Iraq Read it!
"Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or
was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on
September 11, 2001? Were people from all over the world, mostly
Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across
the Potomac from our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania?
Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a
horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?
And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was
"desecrated" when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it
wet? Well, I don't. I don't care at all.
I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in
and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.
I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the
Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of
which is a crime in Saudi Arabia.
I'll care when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi tells the world he
is sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through
his gurgling, slashed throat.
I'll care when the cowardly so-called "insurgents" in
Iraq come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own
religion by hiding in mosques.
I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves
up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of
their suicide bombs.
I'll care when the American media stops pretending that
their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international
law instead of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.
In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave
Marine roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this:
I don't care.
When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi
prisoners who have been humiliated in what amounts to a college hazing
incident, rest assured that I don't care.
When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when
he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take
it to the bank that I don't care.
When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and
a prayer mat, and fed "special" food that is paid for by my tax
dollars,is complaining that his holy book is being "mishandled," you can
absolutely believe in your heart of hearts that I don't care.
And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's
spelled "Koran" and other times "Quran." Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and --
you guessed it,I could not have said this any better myself!
I've never seen it before so its not a dupe to me, But I don't care either.
A lot of truth in that. Thanks for posting it.
Ya gotta like that Pam Foster.
BTT for anyone who missed it the other day
