As I always say on Veterans Day and Memorial Day, the service and sacrifices of those brave men who served on the battlefield and in other capacities should be remembered every single day and not just on these two holidays. And as I also always say, on this day, let’s remember those who are still serving America and bring them home safely so that they, too, will be veterans and not casualties. Without them, we wouldn’t be here, and we certainly wouldn’t be free. But their lives and limbs should be sacrificed sparingly . . . for things that matter, for wars that matter. Sadly, because they’ve been sent to a losing war to hand over a Muslim country from one sect of Muslims who hate us to another group of Muslims who hate us and created a vacuum, we are now sending some of our soldiers back to that hellhole to risk it all again as “advisers.”

Today, as we celebrate Veterans Day and remember the service and sacrifices of those who served and survived, let’s remember that while they may have survived, many of our former troops came home with arms and legs missing, with eyes gone and whole faces and body parts disfigured, making life difficult for them forever. And let’s ask ourselves why we went into Iraq and Afghanistan, and why more than a decade later, we still have troops on the ground in Afghanistan, giving their limbs and lives on a regular basis, and why we must now send troops back to Iraq, which would never have been necessary had we not invaded in the first place for no apparent valid reason (and wouldn’t have happened had we installed a pro-American, brutal Sunni dictator–the only thing Muslims understand–instead of insisting on “democracy” for Islamocrazies).
We went to “war” in Iraq and Afghanistan without actually going to war, and now our military is being sent back to Iraq to go to war again because the first one was so mishandled and not thought out. While our military men were handing out candy and building roads to nowhere, Muslims surrounding them were always at war, constantly blowing our boys to bits. We went to war in Iraq to essentially hand over the country from Sunni Muslims who hate us (but maintained a sort of stability and bulwark against Iran) to Shi’ite Muslims who hate us and take orders from the Iranian Ayatollahs.
On this Veterans Day, I remember those who served in World War II, a war which America actually had the guts to fight and where there was CLEAR good and evil. We were the good guys, no matter what Brad Pitt and Hollywood told me in “Fury” (read my review). We weren’t there handing out candy and building roads while bombs fell upon us. We were prosecuting a war. And that’s why we won. I wonder what most of those World War II heroes–almost all of them now dead–would think of the appeasement of the new (and old) Nazis, the Muslims, that has been going on in this country for years and became appeasement on steroids after 9/11 and ever since. Would we have appeased the Japanese because they bombed us at Pearl Harbor? No way. And the Japanese were far less a threat than Islam is today. Would we have allowed the German-American Bund to impose its will across our great country while our men fought their patrons over and gave their lives for it? Nope, but we did that with Islam, with the number of Muslims in America and the number of their mosques more than doubling (mostly through immigration) in the decade and a few years since 9/11.
