Had Enough Now? - From My Vault

Had Enough Now? – From My Vault

The following is my syndicated article published June 27, 2006. I present it here as a “From My Vault” piece because the actions I addressed then are closely related to what we are witnessing with the cover-up taking place by Obama concerning the murders of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods in Benghazi. While some of the players I referenced in this 2006 article have passed on (read John Murtha), many of the others are still in office espousing agendas detrimental to our military and supportive of Islamic terrorists. And certainly, Obama and Hillary Clinton exemplify that point of view. It is my hope that this alerts you to the fact that the cover-up in Benghazi is a continuation of that which Congress has been doing for many years and that it is time we put an end to it.

There has been no outcry from human-rights organizations or the International Red Cross – who are ever quick to condemn American treatment of terrorist prisoners as inhumane. Their cacophony of silence speaks volumes about where their true sympathies lie.

There’s a reason a pet will continue to use your finest oriental rug as a urinal – it’s because you clean the rug instead of removing the pet. If the pet is cute, perhaps cuddly, wags its tail and slobbers – it enjoys an “avoid paying the consequences for its actions card.” In brief, you’re loyal to a carpet-wetting mutt that will wag its tail at anyone with a bone. Such is the case with liberal Democrats and Republicans alike. Blind ideology trumps the courage and conviction of voters to do what is right.

Pfc. Kristian Menchaca and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker were kidnapped, tortured and slaughtered while on patrol. Their mutilated bodies were found dumped on the roadside and wired with bombs.

Just so we’re on the same page, by mutilated I mean: They had their eyes gouged out, their limbs had been hacked off, they were beheaded and some reports indicate their genitals had been removed and stuffed in the mouths of their severed heads. Their bodies had been savaged to the point of not being recognizable – DNA testing was needed to ensure proper identification.

Were there rushed resolutions put forth by Congress condemning this animalism? Of course not. What we saw was John Kerry, D-Mass., from the bowels of Congress (sarcasm intended), lecturing the newly formed Iraqi government on its need to engage in self-help – while lecturing America on its need to “cut and run.” His timeline for “cutting and running” had gone from Dec. 31 at the beginning of the week to July 2007 three days later – showing even his diatribes are fraught with indecision.

Dick Durbin, D-Ill., Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., Harry Reid, D-Nev., et al. expressed not one word of outrage at the swine who perpetrated these atrocities – not one – zip – nada. They were too busy assailing the president, the Iraqi government and the troops for war crimes. There was no condemnation from the “Hollywooders” either.

John Murtha, D-Pa., wasn’t even willing to acknowledge a half-ton of ordnance was responsible for killing Abu Musab al-Zarqawi – waiting instead to see if there would be opportunity to further bastardize our troops as barbaric murderers raging out of control, slaughtering innocent civilians. I digress to say, if Murtha is so averse to our military, he should stop collecting his military pension and benefits. In that there is talk he has aligned himself with the group Code Pink, they can pay his pension. After all, if they can give $650,000, as has been alleged, to terrorists in Fallujah – Murtha’s compensation wouldn’t amount to a hill of beans (pun intended).

There has been no outcry from human-rights organizations or the International Red Cross – who are ever quick to condemn American treatment of terrorist prisoners as inhumane. Their cacophony of silence speaks volumes about where their true sympathies lie.

There is no such demonstrative silence when it comes to blaming American troops for even a hint of misdeed. With Murtha cast in the role of pied piper, Media Research Center reports that “ABC, CBS and NBC have poured on the coverage [of Haditha], with more than three and a half hours of coverage in just the past three weeks. In contrast, a review of nearly five years of coverage finds those same networks have allotted only 52 minutes of airtime to telling the stories of America’s highly decorated heroes in the war on terror.”

Liberal Democrats, such as Jack Reed, D-R.I., (Republican Lincoln Chaffee’s Democrat mirror image), advocate “cut and run,” complaining it’s been three years. “The president has no plan,” they whine, to which I respond: “What kind of plan is ‘cut and run’?” Where is the strategic planning in running home to mama? What do they envision as the aftermath of such a liquescent act of courage? Do they believe the fledgling Iraqi government will be able to withstand the assault from within that is sure to follow?

The proponents of “cut and run” and those who portray isolated incidents as evidence of pandemic American wrongdoing are not leaders. They are not supporters of our troops or military. They are the equivalent of mutts repeatedly messing the floor. And they will continue to do so until you, the voters, take matters into your own hands. Just like the mutt that thinks wagging its tail and slobbering somehow impairs our olfactory senses pursuant to the soiled carpet – these people think that a smile, a few lies and “Bush is wrong” slogans, is all it takes to get re-elected or have you watch their networks, while they continue insulting our intelligence and patriotism.

In my mind – the fact that not one of the aforementioned has expressed outrage over American civilians being beheaded, the mutilations of American troops at Fallujah and now, of these two fine young men cinches it. They are unfit to represent voters or express opinion. Our troops have been accused of the worst offenses, by Kerry, Murtha, Howard Dean, Durbin, et al., only to have the allegations shown false.

Voters should be filled with righteous indignation that refuses to be sated until every one of them is driven out of office, no matter how long it takes.

    Mr. Massie,
    Bless you for your boldness to speak out. I find your “Rantings” to be more accurately like bright points of light in a newsworld clouded over with deceit and spin and the thin gruel of political correctness.

    I have to admit that I don’t recall the two soldiers being kidnapped and tortured. I guess the media covered that up as well. I think it is an atrocity that our soldiers are being court marshalled for what our sh**headed congress and military thinks are crimes against those that kill our men and women. I think we should turn that butthead at Fort Hood free and put a bounty on his head and let the vigilantes
    have a go at him. If anyone in congress or the military has a problem, put them out there with him. It’s about time that we close our borders to anyone from the middle east. No visas, no college no nothing. We have too many here that don’t agree with the fight that our men and women are trying to accomplish. They join their jidhadist and want to retaliate. Are we going to have to round all these folks up and put them in camps like we did during World War II to our Asians citizens?
    I say enough is enough. How many of these people are collecting benefits from us taxpayers?
    I’m sick and tired of all the BS from Washington, Prez, Supreme Court,Senate, and House. They don’t have a damn clue what the taxpayers go through. The folks that voted for Obama, voted for the compensation that they receive. Tax every Federal employee at 75% and give the rest of the folks that pay tax a break for the next four years.

    Mychal, your vault must be over-flowing! I really appreciate the article 2006. I am a retired Military wife. What I found was that civilians are not informed about major crisis that surround them. If they get data, it may be hours later or during the crisis. I refer to the Cuban Crisis. My AF husband was on Base and I didn’t see him for a few days. Then, the crisis was broadcasted on major television networks. Meanwhile, from day one, I had bags packed and ready for designed Military Shelter. Buses would pick up all Military families. I had bags packed fifteen of the twenty one years and my civilian sister across the country knew nothing about being cautious or prepared. Military familes learn to be ‘always ready.’ Now, in civilian life, I know we aren’t getting data that needs to prepare the public. The U.S. was breached before 2001, we had many warnings of horrible things to come. We had presidents that said, Oh, My. We have reporters who failed Journalism 101 or never took seriously the Journalist’s Creed; And, now we have a president who kisses the Saudi’s…ring and supplies arms to a country that should have nothing more than p shooters. The door has been opened to Muslim terrorists. I fear for our country and people. I keep a survival bag ready. I hope you do. If Judgement day is upon us because people have looked the other way and fell from His Grace, so be it. I am prepared for that as well. “…I put out my hand and touched the face of God.”

    If you let the the criminals get away without even a whimper in protest, are you then, much different.It IS hard to condemn from the comfort of my office but do not think for a moment that many of us would not like to find a 9' hi fence and correct these acts of inhumanity.
    We must increase our abilities and decrease the threat of the Merchants of Chaos…

    Amen Wakinyan – so correctly stated. And for so many who continue to drink the cool-aid and believe these individuals support our military only continue to allow more of our youngest generation to give their all for very questionable reasons..

    I too, being USAF retired as my brother Chris Sanchez noted in his statement was “in the field” more often with my fellow brothers and sisters in the Army Combat Engineers, Marine and Navy Seabees … so my AF career was tinted more in color with those branches at times than those of my won USAF uniform.

    As a result of many combat unit actions throughout my career – one tended to get the feeling of being set-up to fail and then becoming the fall guy due to the many political miscalculations’ and blunders prior to our military involvement. I remember clearly a number of occasions’ these same political official types from the local U.S. Embassy showing up in some far away foreign land berating the military for offending the locals in an effort to look good in the eyes of the local citizens.

    Of course, these same “officials” then would stand around acting as if they knew what they were doing regarding construction projects we were involved with. Yet, almost every one of these deployments’ the in-bound military units had been given misleading information regarding a stated mission to perform and once arriving would have to perform miracles to in fact carry out the “free” project being done for some political favor owed.

    The arrogance showed by the many U.S. Embassy personal towards the U.S. military members in foreign environments’ was sickening to observe, and worse off to be treated with such disrespect from someone that meant very little to me as a person.

    These same individuals always let you know that as a lowly member of the military they would knowingly and willingly sacrifice any U.S. military member as a disposable entity should it be necessary to further their individual career or cause.

    Trust me, there were a few times I felt as if I personally was on my own should anything happen that would make one of those individuals mentioned here look bad or otherwise not be an outcome desirable or draw undue attention they would have easily walked away and left me and those with me to the slaughter.

    And most, if not all of these so-called officials made it clear they had no prior military experience and in fact looked down their nose at us as if we were there totally at their convenience.

    Most career military members at one time or another had made a unfaltering decision that there was a highly probable time in one’s career that you may make the ultimate sacrifice for your country by giving your life – but it angered me greatly that should it ever happen to me as the result of some political officials incompetence that did get me killed for no good reason.

    But; too many instances lately the factual cause behind many military deaths are the result of political in nature and not a direct result of any needed enemy action. These actions should be investigated and those found responsible for deaths occurring due to political gains, they should be brought to justice.

    The memories of our military memebers giving their life for this once great country should be remembered and honored for whom they were … not just another name mentioned in a local newspaper and forever forgotten.

      thomas: I really appreciated your second paragraph…thk you for sharing…

  7. Wakinyan November 24, 2012 at 2:38 pm #

    Chris, I agree with your thoughts and the feeling of needing to regurgitate when we see or hear the hypocritical BS that spews out of the filthy mouths of these self-righteous politicians that thrive on sending our young men and women to give their lives and limbs trying to clean up the messes they themselves have made.
    Mychal, your statements back in 2006 were valid then and still are today, perhaps even more so now because they show that the voters that keep those traitorous sub-human scum in office haven’t learned anything. They, and this includes obama, give speeches about how much they honor the military, but their anti-military actions scream out much louder than the phony words they use to delude their admiring public. I don’t know if it is true but I have read from normally credible sources that Our Great Leader is considering john kerry to replace panetta as Sec. of Defense. That is really a scary thought and unless the gutless senate stopped the nomination it would certainly spell the complete destruction of our military. He was a traitor back in the Viet Nam era and still is. It is an incredible testimony to the mindlessness of the liberals that have kept him in the Senate. Nearly as incredible as those that let Ted Kennedy hold a senate seat from which he continually betrayed America for over forty years until he finally, and thankfully, died. And though it seems impossible, the media today is even more craven and slavish than back in 2006.
    Yes Mychal, I have had enough, more than enough!

      Wakinyan and Chris: both of your statements are right on with Mychal Massie’s rant. Enough is enough, HOWEVER, it appears the majority of the voters proved they continue to wear blinders and are so easily distracted by Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Lack of substance of character of the American voter and citizens shows through again. The Demise of Common Sense is upon us.

      Overall, the American voter suffers from short term memory, very short term. Instead of paying attention and meaning the truth about Benghazi, and more they are concerned with Black Friday and Cyber Monday…. We are a society of consumption, pleasure, and foolishness. No substance of character.

      I remember clearly sitting around the dinner table discussing John Kerry and his “treasonous” public display. I had gone home with an infant, to live with my parents while my husband served his third tour in Viet Nam, a corpsman, attached to the 11th Marines. Dad, a WWII veteran, was furious with John Kerry and said he should be shot for treason! How fast the America people forget, and it still astounds me that he continually is voted in, a man who is heralded as a hero, never worked a day in his life. I could rant and rant all day about the crooks in DC that should be behind bars for criminal behavior.

      ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and how can anyone awaken the American people collectively? I fear for this country, I fear for our troops, and I fear for what our grandchildren will have to face: tyranny and possibly a dictator?

    I'm sorry, I'm retired Air Force and I spent more time with the Marines and the Navy (urp, sorry, guys, I still get sea sick just thinking about it) than I did with the Air Force. I can't fathom the continued nattering (even to this day) about the military being a bunch of savages, murdering savages at that. von Clausewitz wrote "war is the continuation of failed diplomacy. The diplomats failed, the problem is dropped onto the military and if it fails, then it is not the diplomats' fault." Whipping horses we are NOT. We come in after you blow it, try to clean up the mess you made and grit our teeth when you call us killers. Hello? Checked your mirror lately? (Oh, and I'm not directing the "you" at you, Mr. Massie). Okay, I'm going to stop here because I can feel a loooong rant coming on. Combat Camera rules!
