Giving Thanks To The American Soldier

They did it. They not only held their ground as every attempt was being made to undermine them, but they pushed forward. And in the process, they degraded the enemy to the point that critics can no longer cite attacks as evidence of failure.

Most of us already knew that the people who make up the American military are America's finest, but in a country whose culture and values have been corrupted, "finest" might not mean what it used to.

On the contrary, American military personnel are not just America's best, they are our best ever. They stand so far apart from and so far above the average citizen that the rest of us should only look up in amazement – or look down in shame. 

Thanks to you, the men and women who have humiliated al-Qaeda as you were building trust and credibility with the Iraqis, and may all your future Thanksgivings be better than this one.

Now for the rest of the story:

"Contrary to the myths of the left, peace can only be built over the corpses of evil men."

Petraeus for President!

Peters for Veep!

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    Thanks for your comment. I should mention that I intended to comment after your first post here, but I went to your blog and got scared.
    I probably shouldn't have been, but I'm intimidated when I know someone is writing in English and yet I don't understand a thing that's been said.
    But I beg you not to take that as a comment on the quality of your effort. I couldn't even begin to do that. So I've added you to my neighborhood, and if I ever feel comfortable commenting on something, I'm pleading in advance that you be merciful…
    Unless, of course, you can make a joke out of it.
    Until then, I remain,
    Ted

    "when I know someone is writing in English and yet I don't understand a thing that's been said."That is perfectly fine – and a comment I get from many of my friends. Yes, my blog is "all over the place" (as is musical tastes).
