Why do we fight?..Part 2

The following was on the front page about “Fitna” :

Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers. This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else. We would like to thank the thousands of people, from all backgrounds and religions, who gave us their support. They realized is a vehicle for many opinions and not just for the support of one.Perhaps there is still hope that this situation may produce a discussion that could benefit and educate all of us as to how we can accept one anothers culture.We stood for what we believe in, the ability to be heard, but in the end the price was too high.

With that being said, do you know I have to question why we fight? Terrorists threatening people because they believe in the freedom of speech?? Imagine if you will this happening here??!!! The fact the the Islamic religion preached hate, preached the deaths to all that do not believer in Islam, a religion that actually gets so pissed off that they are willing to kill over a freaking movie!! That would be like the the catholic church getting mad and its followers threatening and killing the baptist folks because they said something bad about the pope! Lets get real here people! When are we going to grow up and start acting like adults and not freaking 5 year olds?? My own daughter knows better then this and she is 7!!! The root of all evil are not the people that do evil but the religion that tell them to do evil in that god’s name!!

The video was pulled from live leak, but I have found it again and I will keep finidng it to make sure that everyone sees the truth!!

UPDATE 2: The video is back on Live Leak, you can watch it here below or thre on live leak!

Why do we fight?

After I returned from Iraq in 2004, I was asked alot of questions. Questions like: how is the weather, is it really that bad over there, did you do anything good, and the biggest and toughest question I have ever received “Why do you fight?” Well this is a loaded questions from the start. It can be answered in many ways:
1. I fight for the man next to me on my left and my right.
2. I fight to protect the freedoms of this country.
3.I fight to protect the citizens for this country.
4. I fight because I was trained to fight and ordered to fight.
5. I fight so those who do not serve do not have to.
6. I fight because of the radical Islamic terrorists want not only American soliders dead, but they want every last non-Muslim dead! That include men, women, and children!

If you have not seen or heard of the short film by Geert Wilder, then listen up! This is some ting you need to watch. You need to watch this if you are on the fence on why we fight in Iraq and why we fight in Afghan. If you believe everything that is written in the media or shown on TV then you need to watch this video and see what is really happening.

Over the last year and half, I have read portions of the Koran, along with books that go into detail about the meaning of some of the items in the Koran. But after watching Geert Wilder’s file “Fitna” I have realized what I was reading. If you are curious or just want to see I have put the film here, it can also be found at It takes a minute to load so please be patient:
