I received the attached from a friend. As I read it, I reflected on what happened to our country on September 11th and the 3000+ people who paid the ultimate price by being led like sheep to slaughter because of naive trust in outdated boundary conditions for life and intent. I have always told you of the importance of redefining business boundary conditions. The writer in the attached, tries to do the same.

Subject: This marine really has a handle on our "AMERICA."

Some powerful thoughts by a Marine Master Sergeant to reflect and ponder over. This marine really has a handle on our "AMERICA," and the situation it now finds itself in.

I sat in a movie theater watching "Schindler's List," asked myself, "Why didn't the Jews fight back?" Now I know why.
I sat in a movie theater, watching "Pearl Harbor" and asked myself, "Why weren't we prepared?"

Now I know why.

Civilized people cannot fathom, much less predict, the actions of evil people.

On September 11, dozens of capable airplane passengers allowed themselves to be overpowered by a handful of poorly armed terrorists because they did not comprehend the depth of hatred that motivated their captors.

On September 11, thousands of innocent people were murdered because too many Americans naively reject the reality that some nations are dedicated to the dominance of others. Many political pundits, pacifists and media personnel want us to forget the carnage. They say we must focus on the bravery of the rescuers and ignore the cowardice of the killers. They implore us to understand the motivation of the perpetrators. Major television stations have announced they will assist the healing process by not replaying devastating footage of the planes crashing into the Twin Towers.

I will not be manipulated.

I will not pretend to understand.

I will not

I will not

forget the liberal mediawho abused freedom of the press to kick our country when it was vulnerable and hurting.

I will not forget that CBS anchor Dan Rather preceded President Bush's address to the nation with the snide remark, "No matter how you feel about him, he is still our president."
I will not forget

that ABC TV anchor Peter Jenningsquestioned President Bush's motives for not returning immediately to Washington, DC and commented, "We're all pretty skeptical and cynical about Washington."
And I will not forget

that ABC's Mark Halperinwarned if reporters weren't informed of every little detail of this war, they aren't "likely -- nor should they be expected -- to show deference."
I will not isolate myself

from my fellow Americans by pretending an attack on the USS Cole in Yemen was not an attack on the United States of America.
I will not forget

the Clinton administration equipped Islamic terrorists and their supporters with the world's most sophisticated telecommunications equipment and encryption technology, thereby compromising America's ability to trace terrorist radio, cell phone, land lines, faxes and modem communications.
I will not

be appeasedwith pointless, quick retaliatory strikes like those perfected by the previous administration.
I will not be comforted

by "feel-good, do nothing" regulations like the silly, "Have your bags been under your control?" question at the airport.
I will not be influenced

by so called,"antiwar demonstrators" who exploit the right of _expression to chant anti-American obscenities.
I will not forget

the moral victory handed the North Vietnamese by American war protesterswho reviled and spat upon the returning soldiers, airmen, sailors and marines.
I will not be softened

by the wishful thinking of pacifists who chose reassurance over reality.
I will embrace the wise words

of Prime Minister Tony Blair who told the Labor Party conference, "They have no moral inhibition on the slaughter of the innocent. If they could have murdered not 7,000 but 70,000, does anyone doubt they would have done so and rejoiced in it?
There is no compromise possible with such people, no meeting of minds, no point of understanding with such terror. Just a choice:

defeat it or be defeated by it. And defeat it we must!"

will forcemyself to: -hear the weeping;

the helplessness; -imagine the terror;
-sense the panic ;-smell

the burning flesh
- experience

the loss; - rememberthe hatred.
I sat in a movie theater, watching "Private Ryan" and asked myself, "Where did they find the courage?" Now I know.

We have no choice. Living without liberty is not living.-- Ed Evans, MGySgt., USMC (Ret.)

Keep this going until every living American has read it and memorized it so we don't make the same mistake again.

The whole TRUTH, !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Time we stop the LIBERAL Media from running this country!!
