To Orwell Today,
re: previous email about MOABs in Iraq
Ms. Jackie Jura,
Who's side are you on?
Yes, I do know what a MOAB is.....It is an enormous bomb capable of destroying large areas (including personnel and equipment) in one huge blast. I also know that my rifle is capable of pin-point shooting of enemy combatants. I never asked for the war in Iraq, but I enlisted in the Marine Corps to defend my country and our way of life. I did what I was ordered and what was expected of me.
I apologize for my remarks to you on your posting and I would like to retract my criticisms.
I am proud that I have served in the Military and yet am disappointed in our Government's choices. We have lost way too many people for nothing and it is just continuing to be a hamburger mill over there now.
I would also like to say that this is quite an informational site and I am enjoying reading through your posts and articles.
I would like to say before I close that by me serving in OUR military forces, I have given and protected your right to have this site.
I think you know that I'm on the side of peoples of all nations who are persecuted by tyrants from all nations who create war in the name of peace - just as Orwell said they would.
I cherish our soldiers and hate to see them misused and mistreated by being sent off to destroy innocent nations while all the while our own nation here at home is being attacked from within by lethal enemies.
Thanks for defending my website with your mighty pen and for your honest belief that you are also defending it with your arms.
All the best,
