I Don't Care by P.Foster

"Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not

started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11,

2001 ?


Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally

murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from our

nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania ?


Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible,

burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?


And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was "desecrated" when

an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet?

Well, I don't. I don't care at all.


I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for

incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.


I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start

caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in

Saudi Arabia.


I'll care when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi tells the world he is sorry for

hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling

slashed throat.


I'll care when the cowardly so-called "insurgents" in Iraq come out and

fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in

mosques.


I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of

nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide

bombs.


I'll care when the American media stops pretending that their First

Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead

of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.


In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine roughing up

an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care.

When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners who have

been humiliated in what amounts to a college-hazing incident, rest

assured that I don't care.


When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not

to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank

that I don't care.


When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat,

and fed "special" food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is

complaining that his holy book is being "mishandled," you can

absolutely believe in your heart of hearts that I don't care.


And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled

"Koran" and other times "Quran." Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and ---- you

guessed it - - I don't care ! ! ! ! !



"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a

difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem."
-- Ronald Reagan

"If we ever forget that we're One Nation Under God,
then we will be a nation gone under."
--Ronald Reagan

"We will not have peace as long as they hate us more than they love

their children." --Golda Mier

  • Sorry, but this did not start on Sept 11, 2001. Americans are not hapless victims, we reap what we sow. Our oil stained fingers have been poking middle eastern eyes for decades.

    This text is simply jingoism, it provides no solutions, only more hate.
