“Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic favor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed,the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather,the citizenry,infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Ceasar.”
- Julius Ceasar
Bowe Robert Bergdahl
June 30 2009 An American, a soldier in the US Army, a human being was captured by the Taliban in the Paktika Province of Afghanistan.
It didn’t take long for DOD talking head Lt Col, Ralph Peters now strategic news analysis for Fox news to come out with the propaganda hit piece to steer the American peoples attention away from yet another nail in one of the many coffins coming back from Afghanistan and Iraq.
Fox News: Ralph Peters suggests Taliban should kill US Soldier
Just another psyop.
The fact is the US military has never at anytime claimed or insinuated soldier Bowe Robert Bergdahl to be a deserter or collaborator with the enemy, only steaming piles of excrement such as Bill O’Reilly and Ralph Peters have stooped so low as to discredit one of our soldiers with little known facts. Bill O’Reilly portrays him as a nut case, talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
Ralph Peters tells the news media to Wait till all the facts are in before judgment and hit the pause button on portraying Bowe a hero. It is to late for Peters to hit his, the damage is already done. To bad he doesn’t practice what he preaches.
Talk about hypocrisy in action and a excellent example of double think, Lt Col, Ralph Peters surely on a mission portraying soldier Bowe Bergdahl as a liar,traitor, and even calling for the execution of one of our fellow Americans, saying “The Taliban can save us a lot of legal hassles and legal bills.”
They would have us believe that this soldier joined the military to run away with the Taliban to play bingo or something to that effect.
The Taliban are known for brutal executions, I suppose we are to believe this soldier is not aware of this.
Collaborating with the enemy?
Bowe Robert Bergdahl is a prisoner of war, In this writers opinion not a war but a corrupt and unjust invasion and occupation of other countries. It seems unknown to the majority there is a difference.
Invasion: “an act or instance of invading or entering as an enemy, esp. by an army.”
Occupation: “the seizure and control of an area by military forces, esp. foreign territory.”
War: “a state or period of armed hostility or active military operations: The two nations were at war with each other.”
What would anyone do with a gun to their head, and every day being unknown if you would be released, tortured or executed? Personally I don’t know and hope to never find out. One thing I do know is I am not going to be the one to condemn anyone under these conditions.
Forgiveness: Everyone has their breaking point, except Rambo of course.
There are no known facts that conclude this soldier Bowe Robert Bergdahl needs forgiveness from anyone, on the contrary, maybe we need his.
I wonder what Ralph Peters has to say about John McCain, I bet not a word. It seems some are able to demonize unknown circumstances but steer clear of known circumstances.
What John McCain does NOT want you to see!
John McCain nicked named The Song Bird gave aid and comfort to the enemy plus 32 propaganda tapes to the Vietnamese government, collaborator with the enemy.
How many soldiers died because of this treason? And some would have him as president of the United States. I still see bumper stickers.
Conclusion and Action:
Captured Bowe Robert Bergdahl
The facts are we don’t have many, one fact is Bowe is a prisoner of war by definition and should be treated as such. Where are the American people, the news media, the Senators and Congressmen, the President and the international community?
It is working on a year now, it is time to get Bowe Bergdahl home and out of harms way, regardless of fault, if there even is any, he is one of our own. Are we going to abandon him?
Please write and or call your Senators and Congressmen and let them know we haven’t forgotten this soldier and WE SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!
If we cannot at least do this we have truly become a sad state of affairs and a poor example of Americans indeed.
