"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! Especially today!
I expect that a bunch (if not all) of you out there in FREEPERLAND feel the same way.
We as both a country and a civilization are in for the fight of our lives, if not very existence. It's time we quit wringing our "culturally sensitive hands" and prosecute this war of survival in the manner a war of survival should be prosecuted.
Wars are not fought to placate the populace. Wars are fought to ensure the continuity of one's existance.
So, have at it.
You said what I was (bet all of us were) thinking and feeling.
Great post. It is exactly how I feel. It expresses my reaction to the MSM and libs of unreality...like "up is down, black is white, right is wrong, and wrong is right."
It also captures the feeling of frustration at having to fight a war both in and out of this country at the same time.
E-mail the Vice President your support.

Who is Jimmy and why does he crack corn?
"... And I don't care, the master's gone away......."
"E-mail the Vice President your support."
Why everyone knows him in tese parts. Thas little-Jimmie, but ya'll might know im better at Jimmie CarTUH!
How can a desecration like the Koran be desecrated?
BTTT for all needing a reminder......
