You media pansies may squeal and may squirm,
But a fightin? man knows that the way to confirm,
That some jihadist bastard truly is dead,
Is a brain-tappin? round fired into his head.
To hell with some wienie with his journalist degree
Safe away from the combat, tryin? to tell me,
I should check him for breathin,? examine his eyes.
Nope, I?m punchin? his ticket to Muj paradise.
To hell with you wimps from your Ivy League schools,
Sittin? far from the war tellin? me about rules
And preachin? to me your wrong-headed contention
That I should observe the Geneva Convention,
Which doesn?t apply to a terrorist scum
So evil and cruel their own people run from,
Cold-blooded killers who love to behead,
Shove that mother? Geneva, I?m leavin? em dead.
You slick talkingheads may preach, preen and prattle,
But you?re damn well not here in the thick of the battle.
It?s chaotic, confusin? it all comes at you fast,
So it?s Muj checkin? out because I?m going to last.
Yeah, I?ll last through this fight and send his ass away
To his fat ugly virgins while I?m still in play.
If you journalist wienies think that?s cold, cruel and crass,
Then pucker up sweeties, kiss a fightin? man?s ass.

Russ has givin an explanation to his poem here at the American Thinker
I am not in the military, but I recently emailed Russ Vaughn, after reading Fightin' Words, facts conveniently forgotten by the mainsteam press worth repeating. It goes like this:
Dear Russ Vaughn,
Great poem. I wanted to pass along some thoughts/facts of mine supporting your ideas that were in an AmericanThinker article and repeat something I read on Lucianne.com about urban combat.
From my article, Denial on the Hudson: liberals and 9/11 http://www.americanthinker.com/articles.php?article_id=4049
I was going to make the major supporting point a fact few in the press remember from the 1990s, how there was talk of a Homeport, a US Navy base on Staten Island - and people in New York were opposed to it greatly. How if a Navy ship with missiles had been on Staten Island on Sept. 11th, it could have shot down the first or at least second plane within a minute. How New York used to have an Air Force base at Westbury, L.I. and used to have missiles in either Floyd Bennett Field or Ft. Hamilton in Brooklyn to shoot down Soviet bombers, if they came. I was going to say how as a boy in New York, an older brother of a friend of mine worked at that missile installation as a US Army soldier. I was going to argue how New Yorkers thought they were too "sophisticated" to have a military base nearby like those "grubby Bible thumping rednecks" in Florida and South Carolina.
My last example is from my readings. I recall an article written by George Stephapolis's sister, a nun in Jenin (West Bank) and posted on Lucianne.com, along with one telling reply. Stephie's sister complained a few years ago about Israeli soldiers using an indoor office, to shit on the floor and a photocopier. A replying post came from a Texan whose uncle fought in Germany in World War II. It talked about what soldiers did when they needed to defecate in safety during an urban war setting in the heat of combat. To the point, the poster said that his uncle burst into a German family's urban home and held them at gunpoint during a battle while he shit on their living room floor. Apparently he wasn't going to go in the bathroom and lock the door behind himself while they searched for a knife, gun or pushed a heavy dresser in front of the bathroom door.
not the politician
Aw Geez Russ, can you at least express how you really feel? LMAO! Great poem!!!
While I do not profess to speak for Mr. Vaughn, my interpretation of the point Russ makes at American Thinker is in the same vein that I've tried unsuccessfully to communicate. Things in the MSM changed with Nam. Which in turn changed in journalism as a whole. It is now taboo and goes against "objective" reporting to actually choose sides. And yes, there comes a time when everyone must choose a side! It does not mean you have to give up any objectivity what-so-ever. Nor does it mean censoring anyone's ability to bulldog the government or military. It simply means that most journalists live their lives trying to "NOT" choose a side and in the process lose what value they may have. To themselves and those around them! Or they refuse, such as Sites, to do what needs to be done to protect our troops and the Country as a whole. It's that same "right vs wrong" thing that we, as a Nation, seem to be grappling with right now. JMHO.
BTW Bucky, if you read this, I gave up trying to reconstruct that rant. I used the link you provided, which was way excellent, and just about had it finished when we got hit with a three hour power outage due to a young lady running into a power pole and destroying a transformer. Before I could hit "save"! he-he! Just wasn't meant to be!
P.S. The young lady was OK. She swerved trying to avoid a squirrel of all things. Squirrels make excellent gravy. Power poles mess up cars something fearful! ;-)Posted by JarheadDad at November 30, 2004 03:56 PM
Some people pretend to be "Above the Fray" when all they really are is in denial to avoid responsibility.Posted by Walter Wallis at November 30, 2004 04:48 PM
You got to be more constructive in your criticism.
I'd say to the MSM Since you know better than all the army & marines, you go ahead, go into that mosque first and show us how to do the job right.
