“When you're left wounded on Afganistan's plains and
the women come out to cut up what remains, Just roll to your rifle
and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier”
General Douglas MacArthur"
“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”
“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.” “Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”
“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .” “The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
“Nobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint."
I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."
NOT so great britain's Councillor Warns: Some Afghan Evacuees Will Soon Be ‘Blowing Us Up’ By Robert Spencer
Thursday, September 23, 2021
Jihad Watch : My latest in FrontPage:A recent incident in Britain highlights yet again how it is well-nigh
impossible nowadays to have a coherent and honest public conversation
about the nature and magnitude of the jihad terror threat. Any attempt
to do so is drowned out by charges of “bigotry,” “racism,” and
“Islamophobia,” such that we now have a generation of people who believe
reflexively that any opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression
is ipso facto “hateful,” and thus must not be given voice.
dare to break this rule will be duly punished. This was the recent
experience of a British woman named Sheila Daly, a councillor at
Kingshurst Parish Council in Birmingham. She stepped out of line, and
raised unacceptable questions. She knows now not to do such a thing
According to the UK’s Metro,
Daly, 78, uttered remarks at a Kingshurst Parish Council meeting that
went beyond all the bounds of present-day acceptable discourse, straying
far beyond woke boundaries. She committed her transgression at a
meeting that was called “to discuss the new arrivals, many of whom were
flown into the Birmingham area after leaving Kabul.” Daly, Metro reported, “asked if council officials were prepared for
the Afghans to begin ‘blowing us up’, a comment that drew audible gasps
from others at the meeting.”
Audible gasps. In this face of this general horror over her words,
Daly tried to explain: “she said she did not believe all the Afghans who
had come to the UK had worked with British forces and spoke of her
suspicion the Taliban would try to ‘smuggle people into the country to
cause mayhem, blow us up, or do whatever.’” She “insisted she was not
racist as she used to foster Asian children and said: ‘I would take a
family in and look after them. But there are people in this country
[whose] children have gone off to a war they didn’t want to fight in
Afghanistan. They’ve been killed or maimed. And we’re inviting the same
people into this country to have houses [and] jobs.’”
Why, how could Sheila Daly have dared to say such a bigoted, racist, “Islamophobic” thing? How could she have dared even think it? Maybe she was aware that, as the Daily Mail reported
on September 10, “an Afghan rescued from Kabul by the RAF has been
arrested as a suspected Taliban terrorist in Manchester.” And that Sky News reported
on August 23 that “a person from Afghanistan on the UK’s no-fly list
has been flown into Birmingham as part of the British evacuation
operation in a potential security breach.”
What’s more, Business Insider reported
in mid-August that “thousands of inmates, including former Islamic
State and al-Qaeda fighters, were released from a prison on the
outskirts of Kabul as the Taliban called for a ‘peaceful transition’ of
power. Afghan government troops surrendered Bagram airbase to the
Taliban early on Sunday.
The base houses Pul-e-Charki prison, which has
around 5,000 prisoners. It is the largest in Afghanistan and notorious
for its poor conditions. A maximum-security cellblock held members of al
Qaeda and Taliban, said reports. Footage published by an independent
Afghan news agency, which supports the Taliban, appears to show
militants letting the inmates out.”
What could possibly go wrong? None of those al-Qaeda or Islamic State
jihadis could possibly have ended up being picked up by British (or
American) forces and brought to the UK or the US, could they? Surely the
idea that these jihadis would be able to come into the United States or
Britain as Afghan refugees is beyond the realm of possibility, right?
Despite the fact that there is nothing precluding that possibility at
all, Daly apologized. “After his colleague’s comments, the council’s
acting chair David Cole said he had ‘read her the riot act’ and she had
apologised and retracted the remark, which the council had accepted.”
Nonetheless, “Nazek Ramadan, director of charity Migrant Voice, which
advocates for migrant communities, condemned the councillor. Ms Ramadan
said: ‘These kinds of comments are totally inappropriate, inflammatory
and fuel racism. They spread misinformation and incite hatred.’”
What guarantee can Nazek Ramadan give that Sheila Daly is entirely
wrong, and that no Afghan evacuees will turn to jihad? He can give no
But you’re not allowed to voice such concerns in
shattered, staggering, dhimmi Britain today. To do so is “racist” and
