What Happened to America's Pattons?
Today I'm going to deviate from my normal course of topics. Normally I go on about medical topics but tonight I'm going to make the rare exception.
I'm tired of the liberal press crying over the deaths of five Iraqi civilians by insurgents. That part would not normally bother me, it's just the way the press tries to turn the blame around and does not place it on the insurgents, but instead tries to pin it on American troops. I don't know how, but they always do. I don't know how the "reporters" (if that's what you can call them) can sleep with themselves at night. Now lets look at the contrast, when American troops are killed, it barely makes two sentences in the news and when it does, it's to go on about how all of Iraq hates us. Disgusting, when in fact very few of the people in Iraq actually hate us, they love us, we just have the occasional insurgent who wants to ruin the people of Iraq's one chance at democracy. But using the liberal way of thinking we go from 10% of the population disliking us somehow equals 90%. I guess that's why they're reporters, they couldn't do math so that shut off every other field.
Now this brings me to my question...what ever happened to the Pattons of America? Has our wealth really made us this spineless and weak? Since when did it become cool to be a pansy? What is wrong with today's society? Teens are squirting out kids faster than rabbits. I blame the parents. Why can't they raise more Pattons? If World War II were to occur today I'm pretty certain that we would eventually be speaking German because the press would be attempting to undermine the American defense. Half of America (especially the adolescent population) would still be thinking that we have no right to defend ourselves because war is "never justified". What a joke. What happened to the Pattons of America?!
Why don't we have people that say things like:
- "May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't."
- "Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won with men. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads, that gains the victory."
And my personal favorite:
- "It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived."
May there be better days ahead for all of humanity. At the risk of using another cliche, keep fighting America, anything worth having is worth dying for.
Good luck people,
