Original message "From a Veteran to the Freedom Fighter Who Shot Me"


Dear Freedom Fighter Who Shot Me,
Today is April 14, 2010. Six years ago today I was occupying your land and your communities near Karabillah, Iraq. That particular day I was in a four vehicle convoy travelling from Al Qa'im to Husaybah. I was the gunner standing in the turret of the final vehicle facing the rear, and we ran into the guerilla ambush.

The US Government and the US corporate media would say that you are a terrorist, but you are not a terrorist. I was a terrorist. For that I must offer my deepest apologies and ask your forgiveness. I must also thank you. The bullet that you used to protect yourself from me changed my life. That day, you shot holes through everything I had grown up believing about America fighting for freedom and liberty. Your bullet, like a seed, penetrated far beyond skin and muscle, and sank deep into something in the core of my being where, over time it grew to be something much greater. It grew into a world view that included people outside of the United States of America as human beings and equals. It grew into an understanding of my place in the world and my part in the suffering of other people and the part that the United States Empire plays in the world as one of the greatest enemies of freedom and justice that exists.


I'm not posting the whole screed, you can go over and read it if you want. It's pretty new but I suspect the DU anti military crowd will jump on it soon. After all, it has Freedom Fighters and American Empire in it. :rolleyes::D

Bouncy if I ever heard one. One that I'd beat this douche bag with a shovel into next week for.

Makes you wonder about why this VOLUNTEER soldier ever joined up........

As the father of a disabled Iraq war vet I see this guy as a real piece of shit! Two soldiers were killed in the incident where my daughter lost her eye and half her hearing. Four soldiers were killed in the ambush where she was awarded a Bronze Star. One of those soldiers died helping her drag another soldier to cover. I wonder if anyone else was wounded or killed in that ambush that this piece of shit is talking about and I wonder if they feel the same way.

You know what bothered my daughter the most about being wounded? That she could not go back into the fight.

I notice when we see something like this article, we always every Moonbat talking point. No one put their name on it, that shows me its an over grown bouncy.

The only people the Moonbats want the government to fight are those in this country that disagree with them.

No the author put his name up. He's an IVAW named Bobby Whittenberg. And I reiterate my pervious statement. I'd love to have some alone time with the back stabbing douche monkey.

I doubt this guy saw any action outside of staring at the back of the rig in front of him.

He may not have served after all . . .I see that happening somewhat often with the IVAW.

Booby Wittenberg is another fake soldier popular with the anti-war crowd. He was never ambused and they when I was there we didn't use terms like "guerilla ambush."
Insurgent, muj, haji, sure but not guerilla.
