I wish everyone felt this way.

For anyone who wants to play the Middle East game in the interest of our great Nation in an objective and balanced



way, they should know these are the views of the "Best and Brightest" in the business who have "been there and done that." For your Information And I Hope You Enjoy





Sub: Lieutenant General Chuck Pitman's Views, Semper Fi!




This 'Letter of Apology' was written by Lieutenant�
General Chuck Pitman, US Marine Corps, Retired:



For good and ill, the Iraqi prisoner abuse mess will
remain an issue. On the one hand, right thinking
Americans will abhor the stupidity of the actions
while on the other hand, political glee will take
control and fashion this minor event into some
modern day massacre.

I humbly offer my opinion here:

I am sorry that the last seven times we Americans
took up arms and sacrificed the blood of our youth;
it was in the defense of Muslims (Bosnia, Kosovo,
Gulf War 1, Kuwait, etc.)

I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the
extremists came after 9/11.

I am sorry that all of the murderers on 9/11 were
Islamic Arabs.

I am sorry that most Arabs and Muslims have to live
in squalor under savage dictatorships.

I am sorry that their leaders squander their wealth.

I am sorry that their governments breed hate for the
US in their religious schools, mosques, and�
government-controlled media.

I am sorry that Yasser Arafat was kicked out of every
Arab country and high-jacked the Palestinian 'cause.'

I am sorry that no other Arab country will take in or
offer more than a token amount of financial help to
those same Palestinians.

I am sorry that the U. S. A. has to step in and be the
biggest financial supporter of poverty stricken Arabs
while the insanely wealthy Arabs blame the USA for
all their problems.

I am sorry that our own left wing, our media, and our
own brainwashed liberal masses do not understand
any of this (from the misleading vocal elements of our
society like radical liberal professors, CNN and NY TIMES).

I am sorry the United Nations scammed the poor people
of Iraq out of the 'food for oil' money so they could get
rich while the common folk suffered.

I am sorry that some Arab governments pay the families
of homicide bombers upon their death

I am sorry that those same bombers are brainwashed
thinking they will receive 72 virgins in 'paradise.'

I am sorry that the homicide bombers think pregnant
women, babies, children, the elderly and other non-
combatant civilians are legitimate targets.

I am sorry that our troops die to free more Arabs from
the gang rape rooms and the filling of mass graves of
dissidents of their own making.

I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed more
Arabs than any other group.

I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to
seize control of Iraq and return it to a terrorist state.

I am sorry we don't drop a few dozen Daisy cutters
on Fallujah.

I am sorry every time terrorists hide they find a
convenient 'Holy Site.'

I am sorry they didn't apologize for driving a jet into
the World Trade Center that collapsed and severely
damaged Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church
one of our Holy Sites.

I am sorry they didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175,
the USS Cole, the embassy bombings, the murders
and Beheadings of Nick Berg and Daniel Pearl, etc...etc!



I am sorry Michael Moore is American; he could feed a
medium sized village in Africa .

America will get past this latest absurdity. We will punish
those responsible because that is what we do.

I am sorry that Barack Hussein Obama may be elected
president of the United States when he doesn't have a
clue on how to be a strong Commander-in-chief in a
world filled with Muslim extremists who will do whatever
it needs to do to destroy the lives of civilized people
while killing innocent men, women and children in order
to bring a change that is beneficial to all Islamic terrorists
worldwide.

I am sorry that voters on the liberal left don't understand the
frightening changes that are taking place in the Muslim world
and what these changes will do to this world in which we live.

I am sorry that the Democratic Party has been highjacked
by Socialists and Communists right under the very noses of
those who take pride in calling themselves�democrats.

We hang out our dirty laundry for the entire world to see.
We move on. That's one of the reasons we are hated so
much. We don't hide this stuff like all those Arab countries
that are now demanding an apology.

Deep down inside, when most Americans saw this reported
in the news, we were like - so what? We lost hundreds and
made fun of a few prisoners. Sure, it was wrong, sure, it
dramatically hurts our cause, but until captured we were
trying to kill these same prisoners. Now we're supposed to
wring our hands because a few were humiliated?

Our compassion is tempered with the vivid memories of
our own people killed, mutilated and burnt amongst a
joyous crowd of celebrating Fallujahans.

If you want an apology from this American, you're going
to have a long wait! You have a better chance of finding
those Seventy-Two virgins.


Signed, Chuck Pitman
Lieutenant General, USMC
