[January 11, 2020] Army Vet writes to us today about the importance of strength and how it keeps us and others out of trouble. He takes on SJWs, college snowflakes, and weak leaders.
Peace through strength: I must study war so that my sons can study engineering and art. My profound apologies to Founding Father John Adams; I modified his quote because I like it. The normal position of mankind is conflict, whether it be on the battlefield, in the boxing ring, or commercial competition. Peace is abnormal. Instead of asking, “Why is there so much war?” the more important question is, “Why is there so much peace?” Philosophers have tried to answer that question since Adam and Eve. But, like so many of my comrades in arms, I know the answer. The United States and its allies are ass-kicking SOBs. Dirtbags and little-shit countries know that if they pick on the American giant bear, they will get eaten. We kick butt and take names. We do that when necessary to protect the innocent, never to expand an empire. It should come as no surprise to anybody, anywhere in the world, that is why everyone wants to live in America. President Trump did exactly that when he killed Iranian General Soleimani (I smiled when I heard about the drone strike). Remember that peace exists only through a strong military and free, robust economy.
When the going gets tough: The world is a tough place and it’s complicated. Good leadership will get us through the hard times and that was why we won the major wars of the 20th century. Franklin Roosevelt, George Patton, Winston Churchill, Dwight Eisenhower, these were the men who gave us the vision and resources to utterly destroy the Nazi and Japanese empires. Yes, they were empires and getting bigger by the day until the good ‘ole USA stepped in. These wars were not easily won and they weren’t for the faint of heart. In America, there was a peace movement during WWII, aggressively run by socialists and communists. Fortunately, good men prevailed. We were strong through a combination of being resource-rich and by the strength of willpower. Along with the United States, I’m proud of England, Poland, Australia/NZ, China, and Norway for really stepping up when needed during WWII. France, Italy, most of Africa, Mexico, and Switzerland were weak-kneed pussies when it came to standing up to the Nazi war machine. When shit hits the fan and the going gets tough, the tough get going … and the weak get eaten.
When others speak of fear, we speak of warriors: Fear destroys. I loved it when warrior General ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis was asked on CBS “Face the Nation” what kept him up at night. His answer was, “Nothing, I keep other people awake at night.” Ouch! It must have stung a bunch of those tiny-wiener SJWs and their liberal-progressive snowflake friends when he said that. Those losers must have been in shock and were awed. I would have given a month’s salary to have been there in the basement of their mom’s house when the pussies heard from Mattis. Come on folks, when things are going to hell, a warrior will step forward; the question is, will that person be you? Warriors don’t have regrets, they don’t run away from trouble, they are not victims (like so many pantywaist, sissy men), and they don’t pee their pants when a real man steps into the room. Strength matters. That is why we value strength so much in America. A strong man gets things done. That is the heart of being a warrior and I like real warriors. Real warriors are out there every single day kicking butt and taking names.
