The Assasination of Top Sniper American SEAL Chris Kyle
Asian Week ^ | February 8, 2013 | Arthur Hu

Posted on 02/07/2013 11:44:21 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

All America needs is yet another unexplained lone gunman non-terrorist killing of American Hero Chris Kyle. He was America’s most celebrated sniper of the Afghanistan conflict described by wikipedia:

a United States Navy SEAL and the most lethal sniper in American military history, with 160 confirmed kills (out of 255 claimed kills) At the age of 8, Kyle’s father taught him to shoot. As a youth, he trained as a bronco rider for the rodeo, which he gave up after a serious injury to his arm. He had intended to volunteer and enlist in the U.S. Marine Corps, and was recruited by the U.S. Army, but eventually enlisted with the U.S. Navy. Kyle served four tours in the second Iraq war, and was awarded the Bronze and Silver Star medals multiple times. Iraqi insurgents dubbed him the “Devil of Ramadi” and offered an increasing bounty for his head. He was shot twice, and was involved in six IEDattacks. Kyle separated from the U.S. Navy with an honorable discharge in 2009 to spend time with his family. He remained in the spotlight during retirement, and wrote a New York Times bestselling autobiography, American Sniper.

--snip--

Sarah Palin, God bless her was one of the first political figures to mourn Kyle. America’s most conservative Filipina Michelle Malkin also paid her respects. Obama, who was so proud of his SEAL operation oddly hasn’t said a word even though he works so hard to make both the Zionists and Islamists equally happy.

But not everyone thinks Kyle is an American Hero. The most famous statement of disrespect comes from a tweet of Ron Paul, who doesn’t seem to mind being the favorite candidate of white nationalists, neo-nazis and 9-11 truthers for Iran...

Wow. For someone to say this:

“he works so hard to make both the Zionists and Islamists equally happy”

then FOLLOW it with this:

“a tweet of Ron Paul, who doesn’t seem to mind being the favorite candidate of white nationalists, neo-nazis and 9-11 truthers for Iran...”

sort of really sounds like the pot calling the kettle....

I’ve lived in a few different countries and am always amazed, or amused, at the multitudes of opinions, published opinions, “sponsored” opinions, etc. This past election cycle I looked into Ron Paul’s “antisemitism” and really couldn’t find anything. I agree with his core beliefs and I gave to the campaign. But this “live by the sword” thing Armstronged me (Lanced me.) I just can’t wrap my head around what an ass-hat you’d have to be to tweet that.

Mr. Hu surely seems to have the straight scoop on the Alex Jones/Ron Paul fruitcakes -- anti-American, drugged up, looney toons.

The First Lady is going to the funeral of that poor little girl in Chicago who died after the Inaugural. I hope the President is planning to attend this funeral or he SHOULD. He doesn’t have any respect so he probably won’t. UGH!!!

What did the author mean ‘(Obama) oddly silent’?

Can he milk the death for his purpose without a tidal wave of backlash? No.

And hence, not ODD at all.

OBAMA NEEDS TO STAY AS FAR FROM COWBOY STADIUM ON MONDAY AS POSSIBLE. His presence would only turn the memorial into something Obama. For once in his life Jerry Jones has done something RIGHT.

That is my main problem with Libertarians, they stand for nothing. Their mantra is nothing. If you don’t stand for what is right you are wasted space.

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. - Edmund Burke (one of my favorite quotes)

I remember watching this interview live (click). So polite, honest, purposeful, and well spoken. My respect for Chris Kyle is immense.

Dear Lord, we ask that You comfort the family and friends Chris Kyle has left behind even as You welcome him to eternal life. We are thankful for the time he was given to us. He had determined his purpose in life was to protect his fellow man, and he embraced that purpose without reservation. Many owe their lives to him and are saddened that he has left this world first. May the memory of him serve as a role model for us all. Amen.

I hope you didn’t lose a testicle over it.

Can’t have sides without a middle...

Can’t ride two horses with one ass. There is no true middle when it comes to right/wrong, good/bad, lawful/unlawful, or moral/immoral.

Only a naive fool would attempt that.

I’m sorry for you, if your life is just black or white. God made colors and an infinite amount of greys.

Yes, as far looking at beauty and created life, but not when confronted with right and wrong. The luke warm churches will be spit out. You are either in or not.

And the “zero” body count continues. Is he trying to beat out the clintonistas?
