I received this from a Naval Academy classmate. I certainly hope it manages to get into the hands of the insurgents in Iraq and they can read the version they receive. The Marines have always taken care of their own and will make certain many pay if this Marine is beheaded. Please pass it along.
This letter is for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, ''Islamic Response,'' and the rest of the so-called "insurgents" in Iraq. I obviously do not have an e-mail address for these vermin, so I am forwarding this letter to my entire address book in the hope you good people will forward it to as many people as possible, and that eventually through the miracle of the internet it somehow ends up in the hands of the intended recipients. Thank you all for your assistance.
To the terrorists currently operating in Iraq,
I see that you have captured a U. S. Marine, and that you plan to cut off his head if your demands are not met. Big mistake. Before you carry out your threat I suggest you read up on Marine Corps history. The Japanese tried the same thing on Makin Island and in a few other places during World War Two, and came to regret it. Go ahead and read about what then happened to the mighty Imperial Army on Tarawa, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. They paid full price for what they did, and you will too.
You look at America and you see a soft target, and to a large extent you are right. Our country is filled with a lot of spoiled people who drive BMWs, sip decaf lattes and watch ridiculous reality TV shows. They are for the most part decent, hard working citizens, but they are soft. When you cut off Nick Berg's head those people gasped, and you got the media coverage you sought, and then those people went back to their lives. This time it is different. We also have a warrior culture in this country, and they are called Marines. It is a brotherhood forged in the fire of many wars, and the bond between us is stronger than blood. While it is true that this country has produced nitwits like Michael Moore, Howard Dean and Jane Fonda who can be easily manipulated by your gruesome tactics, we have also produced men like Jason Dunham, Brian Chontosh and Joseph Perez. If you don't recognize those names you should. They are all Marines who distinguished themselves fightin! g to liberate Iraq, and there will be many more just like them coming for you.
Before the current politically correct climate enveloped our culture one of the recruiting slogans of our band of brothers was "The Marine Corps Builds Men." You will soon find out just how true that is. You, on the other hand, are nothing but a bunch of women. If you were men you would show your faces, and take us on in a fair fight. Instead, you are cowards who hide behind masks and decapitate helpless victims. If you truly represented the interest of the Iraqi people you would not be ambushing those who come to your country to repair your power plants, or sabotage the oil pipelines which fuel the Iraqi economy. Your agenda is hate, plain and simple.
When you raise that sword over your head I want you to remember one thing. Corporal Wassef Ali Hassoun is not alone as he kneels before you. Every Marine who has ever worn the uniform is there with him, and when you strike him you are striking all of us. If you think the Marines were tough on you when they were cleaning out Fallujah a few weeks ago you haven't seen anything yet. If you want to know what it feels like to have the Wrath of God called down upon you then go ahead and do it. We are not Turkish truck drivers, or Pakistani laborers, or independent contractors hoping to find work in your country. We are the United States Marines, and we will be coming for you.

I wonder if this applies to Matt Maupin as well?
200 years from now, I want their children's children's children's children
to cower and cringe in fear whenever they hear the sounds of jet engines overhead
because their legends tell of fire from the sky.
I want them to hide in dark caves and holes in the earth,
shivering with terror whenever they hear the roar of diesel engines
because the tales of their ancestors talk about metal monsters
crawling over the earth, spitting death and destruction.
I want their mothers to be able to admonish them with
"If you don't behave, the Pale Destroyers will come for you",
and that will be enough to reduce them to quivering obesience.
I want the annihilation to be so complete that their mythology
will tell them of the day of judgment when the stern gods from across the sea
.. the powerful 'Mericans .. destroyed their forefathers' wickedness.

Does this still apply if the Marine is shot in the back of the head as the terrorists have reported?
don't forget us soldiers, by gawd.
Makes me want to dig out my boots and utes and go join the fight.
That's a different guy - he is US Army.
Call me cynical... but I am not yet convinced that this whole episode is not a hoax.
But it just doesn't pass the "smell test."
This Marine was UA to begin with.
And I am not yet convinced that he is not a turncoat.
So let's not get our dander up yet.
And don't be surprised if there is a beheading but be very suspicious that the terrorists don't take off this Marine's uniform and put it on a dead person and behead him...
I've got goose bumps! This is powerful. I'm so glad this was posted. Ever person in the United States should read this. Wrath will rain down on the cowards if they do this thing!
Someone show this to the terrorists!
SEMPER FI BUMP
What is UA?
God may have mercy on their souls............
Because the Marine Corps will surely not.
You could be right about having suspicions. I did kind of wonder why they abducted someone with a "muslim" sounding name.
Unfortunately, the marines have to work within the limits set by their commanders. I don't doubt that the marines were already prepared to do what needed to be done even before the beheading. But they were leashed.
Don't let this get in the hands of the NY/LA SLimes, Washington ComPost or CNN,NBC,ABC or CBS because they will accuse Marines of planning war crimes.
That is so cool! Kudos and ditto.
BlueLancer, those images of the "Mericans destroying their...wickedness" made me SOOOO happy.
Only when we rain down TRUE, BIG-TIME death and destruction on their pointy little heads will we start making the world safe for our children. After all, our descendants will be safe only in proportion to how much their descendants cringe in fear at the thought of pissing us off. -OhMike
