IN MEMORY OF THOSE WHO
LIVED THE GOOD LIFE
FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT
AND MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE

Why isn't the Cairo News Network showing this type of video? Because that would be propaganda.

Music courtesy of Seether, I believe. Semper Fi!

UPDATE:
Bonus coverage. I liked this song so much, I googled the lyrics. Here they are -- couldn't be more perfect. Also, here's the link to the official Seether website.
This marine is a fine filmmaker. Hopefully, we'll see him in Hollywood in a couple years, someone to balance out the nutjob lefty Clint Eastons of the world.

Out of my Way

Out of my Way!
Out of my Way!

I can't pass up this opporunity, to make myself observed.
I can't pass up this opportunity, to let myself be heard.
Would you, like to, be the one who sees me lose this all?
Would you, like to, be the one who sees me fall?

Nobody's gonna stand in my way.
Give it up, son, I'm doing this my way.
Nobody's gonna stand in my way.
Give it up, son, I'm doing this my way.

You like to think the worst is over now, but you can't breathe at all.
You like to think you owed a favor now, man, you've seen it all.
Did you, want to, be the one who pushed me off the wall?
Did you, want to, be the one that let me fall?

Nobody's gonna stand in my way.
Give it up, son, I'm doing this my way.
Nobody's gonna stand in my way.
Give it up, son, I'm doing this my way.

You can't hold me down.
You can't hold me down.
You can't hold me down.
You can't hold me down.

I can't pass up this opportunity, to make myself observed.
I can't pass up this opportunity, to let myself be heard.

The Front Lines: Listen to the Troops Who Fight the War on Terror

Another Progress for America video, producers of the 'These People Want to Kill Us' ads that have been running this fall.


"American troops know the truth. That's why we fight to protect America from al-queda terrorists.Who want to destroy US." -- Sgt. Major Elaine Stem, retired, USMC.

Too bad the John F-ing Kerrys of the world don't appreciate what these brave heroes are doing for us.

Video: Retired Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney calls for Kerry’s resignation


From Michelle Malkin's Hot Air:

And then proceeds to impugn his service in Vietnam.

From an active-duty soldier in Karol’s comments section: Is Kerry reffering to all the officers proudly serving over here as well? “Stuck in Iraq” he said, nice. I know first hand that I am not “stuck in Iraq”. I proudly put my boots on everyday for people back home so they can sleep soundly. We get blown up by IED’s/landmines, have mortar attcks, and the snipers are getting good over here. Just about everyday. It pisses me off to hear politicians bad mouth the situation over here. I have lost 4 damn good brothers. 2 in my own arms. People will NEVER understand what we go through everyday! It even makes me sick to my stomach that Kerry and I are considered “shipmates”. God Bless our great nation! Please keep praying for the ones still in harms way thoughout the world! Semper Fi.

CJ points to one nutroots blog as evidence that whatever Kerry might have meant, “[his] base knew exactly what he was saying.”

Of course, the mainstream media are avoiding this story like the plague.

BTW, my mother-in-law told me a joke she heard from someone in Kerry's state:

New Englander: "I'm from M'chusetts."
Texan: "Don't you mean 'Massachusetts?"
New Englander: "No, M'chusetts. We sent the ASS to Washington."

True. True.

Now Can We Question Their Patriotism? Hell yeah

When is the Republican administration going to take these shitbags to task? Hang 'em high.

Earlier Proof CNN is a pro-terror organization

I just did a search for 'Al Jazeera', the all-muslim, all-terrorism news network, and just found an interesting article at this website, the TBS Journal:

The Courting of Al-Jazeera
by TBS Managing Editor
Sarah Sullivan

While Washington asked the emir of Qatar to "rein in" Al-Jazeera, American
networks were headed to Doha in search of a deal.

It's nearly midnight in Doha, and we are in a cafe on a pier jutting out over the shoreline of the Persian Gulf. The cafe is empty and the night air quiet—except for the insistent ring of mobile telephones. Al-Jazeera Managing Director Mohammed Jasim Al-Ali takes a call from an American TV network executive. The airstrikes are well underway, and the Qatar-based satellite news channel, by now well known to TV audiences and Washington decision-makers alike, is the only TV presence in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. Washington, in early October, asked Qatar to rein in the satellite channel, claiming it fans anti-American sentiment. American broadcasters, though, want Al-Jazeera to make them a deal.


The story continues...

Although this is a perfect example of how two organizations can be of mutual assistance, agreements between Al-Jazeera and CNN are not just a result of, nor limited to, crisis coverage. "We've had a history of cooperation with CNN," Mr. Al-Ali says. "Three or four months ago we had a meeting with them to agree on cooperation, so that in areas where they are strong we would join in, and in the places that we're strong they'd have our support. It became formal around two and a half months ago, and more so after Sept. 11. It's a long-term agreement, not just for this crisis."

Al-Jazeera became a CNN World Report contributor a year ago, and over the summer officials from the two organizations met both in Washington and in Doha to cement a relationship. "After Sept. 11," Nasr says, "we realized we need a CNN presence in the Al-Jazeera newsroom to figure out how we can cooperate." Nasr, a Lebanese American equally fluent in English and Arabic, was in Doha by the 14th.

Looks like CNN was in bed with the terrorists as early as 2001. I'd say that qualifies as TREASON (see What's so wrong with showing Patriotism in the Media?), not purveyors of "the unvarnished truth."

Just in case you're wondering, the TBS on that site is not Ted Turner's OTHER network. Here's the copyright at the bottom of the page: "Copyright 2001 Transnational Broadcasting Studies - TBS is published by the Adham Center for Television Journalism, the American University in Cairo."
