You might start the fight…but we sure will finish it .. By a Soldier, LT.
Save America Foundation ^ | January 15, 2013 | Fred Brownbill

Posted on 01/15/2013 6:03:42 AM PST by iontheball

I am a soldier. I know what war looks like, what it sounds like, smells like, what it feels like in my soul.

I stand today in the twilight of my nation’s grace, looking into the darkness of impending war.

My sleep is troubled, knowing what awaits, yet the ignorant and the ‘true believers’ sleep easily in their delusions, and I am saddened by it.

Q. Can anything less than a military force carry the Stamp Act into execution?

A. I do not see how a military force can be applied to that purpose.

Q. Why may it not?

A. Suppose a military force sent into America; they will find nobody in arms; what are they then to do? They cannot force a man to take stamps who chooses to do without them. They will not find a rebellion; they may indeed make one.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Friends and Freepers All, THIS is an absolutely MUST READ. Copy and send to everyone you know. This is truth personified in a way I have not quite seen until now.

I hope you’re right. Sadly, in my past three decades I’ve seen so many military “leaders” who are totally uneducated on the Constitution they swore an Oath to defend and protect...I wonder what tiny fraction of officers and enlisted we have left in (and out) of the services who even understand their primary obligation as a member of the US military, which is to obey the words of that Oath.

I fear that the majority of uniformed service members will soon disgrace themselves and their flag by obeying a directive to defy their Oath.

While I agree this is most definitely a must read, at the same time I feel parts of it are very close to borderline threats of murder of innocents, though I know it is not.

My point being, this is exactly the kind of thing to be used against this right thinking man to take away his liberty to keep arms under Obama's new laws.

I say, take care with what you put on the net. It will be used against you at the worst time if it can be.

I will show no quarter to a group of people who would round up 30 Million Americans without a second thought.

Whenever a Communist revolution happens 10% is murdered EVERY SINGLE TIME!

That is kind of B.S. my family left Germany to avoid. I will not let that happen here.

And Passive resistance isn't going to work when they haul you away.

We shouldn't enjoy killing, but when done righteously, it's just a chore, like any other.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. Remember, O L-RD, the children of Edom

in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation. O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed;

happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth your little ones against the stones.

Ahhh....but this is what he writes, and many of these people are not the enemy, but simply innocent Americans who have !st amendment rights like you and I.

I do not care why you took that job with the government, or why you continue to hold it. I only know that you have become Judas and sold yourself to an oppressive state - your government office buildings and vehicles are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.

I do not care why, as a journalist, you choose to spin and corrupt the news, rather than report the plain truth and let the people judge for themselves. I only know that you have violated the public trust in the most vile and seditious manner, and thus your homes, offices, studios, vehicles, and any other place you may find yourself are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.

I do not care why you signed that union card. I only know that you pay dues to a communist organization which conducts treasonous works against my Republic daily – and so your union hall and your work-sites are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.

I was just remarking to someone yesterday. Throughout history there has always been some bastard who thinks he has to go to war. It is always men who would rather be at peace and free and didn’t start the war who finish it. Maybe it is the outrage of having their peace and freedom destroyed by some greedy stupid bastard who can’t work and play well with others.

I’m ready to get our peace and freedom back just any time from now. I think it had better happen soon while we are still able. I’m ready to get rid of the greedy bastard who is bend on destroying our peace and freedom.

This is true. However, to your former point, he could be interpreted to mean the word “battlefield” is being used metaphorically. e.g. posting flyers at “the battlefield”.

Regarding your latter point, it is why a lot of us don’t pen this stuff ourselves but post someone elses words on facebook and say “this is an interesting read”. After all, one can post something they disagree with and say it is an interesting read.

As my wife likes to say, “interesting” is an interesting word. :-)

I think he is saying they are not innocent. Similar to the people who worked in the back offices for Goebbels. It is why we permitted ourselves to bomb Berlin.

“Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself”

LITANY AGAINST FEAR
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
~Frank Herbert

Live by fear and you lose. Silence is aquiescence to evil.

No! Did you wathc the links I gave you?

Here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlN2t0oERHk

Those people he talks about are either apathetic to what the Communists will do. Or will help them.

Since you feel that all Americans are inherently innocents. Let me show you the inhertanily innocent Germans too.

MY relations in the 30's DID NOTHING to stop them and many non Jews egged them on or simply didn't care.

Mesta, you simply MUST take time to watch this documentary if you haven't already.

It is the best Historical look at the Nazi's I have ever seen.

No interviews 50 years later, not experts telling what happened.

Just the words of the German people and what they felt at the time.

Third Reich: The Rise-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KG74s4DnRw

Everyone was "innocent", because they did nothing and let it happen to them.

Very well stated.

You cannot protect life, without the ability to take life.

While you are WAITING for the police to respond, someone could be losing their life.

If you would quit screaming and read what I said you would notice I said many of these people are innocents, not "all Americans are innocents."

And you would also notice my point was, take care with what you post on the net, they will use it against you.

And maybe you didn’t notice this in the article:
“I know that all of these places and all of these people are part of the battlefield ,not just because I am a soldier, and have experienced a few battlefields in my day; but also because our President declares that even our own homes are on the battlefield, whether we wish them to be or not, and I have no choice but to believe him;”

We Jews have a saying. “When a man says he wants to kill you, believe him.”

Thank you for sharing that with me Mesta.

I will make sure to watch it.

Since it was made in '85 many of those people where still alive.

For me (and most likely you) 1985 was before I was born so even that seems so long ago.

Sadly time has taken most of them from us, which I guess is why people are forgetting.

Dictators need a straw man, and what better than a Jewish Gun Owner in America?

Pan Falborski, a Polish bystander, on a train to Treblinka while we watch his reaction. Lanzmann also drives him along the streets of Wlodawa in a car while he talks about the Jews who used to live in the passing houses. In Part 2 Falborski talks about the gas vans and the mass graves. Karski returns and gives a detailed, emotional description of the ghetto.

How many of our neighbors would be like that today?

I believe this is the next theme you will see coming from the media. We need to have gun control because the gun nuts are making violent threats. I’m sure 60 minutes is working on a special that will show Alex Jones screaming, James Yeagher’s death threats, this article, the soldier last year who had his guns taken away for his “threats”. Pile in the Preppers and they will make the 90’s Militias look like Boy Scouts, when compared to 2A supporters.

Prepare yourself before you watch it. It is extremely harrowing and will drain you emotionally. It took me weeks to get over watching it, and even today, sometimes out of nowhere, I flash on scenes and faces and words from it and the emotion just never goes away. It’s very painful to see, but we MUST not ever allow such things to happen here ever, ever, ever.

I will prepare myself Mesta, just from reading what it says on Wikipedia it sounds.......unnerving to say the least.

Near the end of the Soviet story they show and tell about the Human Experiments that were conducted in the camps and I still can't get those images out of my mind.

But don't worry, I have people telling me here that is simply good ole' Americans first amendment rights to talk about doing that us. We must have all view points you know.

They won’t. It has not percolated up to the top echelons on our side that there is an intractable and increasingly hostile division in America, and that we are getting perilously close to the point where blood will flow. They are still playing political games in between rounds of golf and smoking cigars on the verandah.

When obama was first elected and the obamites were so excited and enthused, they called it an historic moment in American history. Little did we know it would also be the end of America as we knew it.
History will not be kind to obama.
