The following blog is from a “Guest” Blogger not associated with Straight Ahead Outreach. This is the first blog he has written so i offered to post it for him, so he could see how the statistics work on blogs. Enjoy :-))! (Lance Greene)
Why are people so quick to go to war to “defend” liberties and freedoms in other countries, And at the same time so slow to defend us here from crime and tyranny and the robbing of our freedoms by criminals, rapists, molesters, thugs and drug dealers.
Why are people are “ok” with the killing, evil dictators, soldiers, and so-called collateral damage in other countries when trying cause “change” or doing the “right, honorable, or just” thing in foreign land, But as soon as someone mentions “killing, executing, capital punishment”, or any form of firm justice everyone gets upset?
Why does everyone freak out when someone that was innocent, was wrongly put in prison or executed, and at the same time don’t say anything when innocent men women and children are killed while the military is trying to kill some high value target or terrorist. Why do we have terms like “acceptable level of collateral damage” but we won’t cut the justice system any slack or act quickly and decisively to get rid of the evil within?
Where was the warrant when military invaded Iraq? Why are we ok with bombing, shooting, shelling, burning, gassing, starving, nuking, and torturing the people of another country because of assumed or supposed guilt on the part of their government? And we would call it a horrendous, heinous crime or catastrophe if the same thing was done to a prison full people proved guilty of crimes against the American People.
What is the amount of soldiers that have been killed for just doing their job, following orders? Good, law abiding people that died not because they are evil or bad but because they were on the other side.
Who should be our real enemies of the state? A person of a different skin color or someone with a different flag on their uniform? If borders didn’t exist would you call the person you now call an enemy an enemy still? Our enemy’s should be those that choose what is bad and evil without remorse, those who make a practice of hating and harming others, those who are proud of their badness and who like the evils that they commit, those who are caught red-handed doing the worst of crimes. Could you rightly say that your enemy’s actions are appalling, disgusting, wrong or evil? If not should they really be your enemy?
We should be willing to kill not just because someone told us to or because we are following orders or because of some emotional patriotic inaccurate fervor, but because we think it is the Just, right, moral, logical, and necessary thing to do.
Why do we allow the killing, raping and pillaging of our family (nation), not by some foreign soldier or “terrorist”, but by our fellow citizens only because we have gone soft on crime and instead choose to build resorts (prisons) for criminals to spread their evil, If you ask me prisons are the real terror cells, career criminals the true terrorists.
Why do the victims have to pay taxes for the criminal that hurt them or their loved ones, to have a posh life in prison, often better than that of an average American? Free medical care. Criminals should pay the victims or their countries for their crimes not the other way around.
Why doesn’t the Government take a break from warring in other countries, and use that same zeal and skill on and tax money that they use on the foreign battlefield, and clean up our streets. How nice could this country be if the trillions of dollars spent abroad on foreign soil, were spent here? Why don’t we make this nation a clean, healthy, safe, truly secure place to call HOME!
