Ingrates and Idiots

For the first time in OIF the Canadians have been involved. A combined US, British, and Canadian operation resulted in the freeing of one Brit and two Canadians. One Brit and two Canadians. No Americans. Do you know why? Because he was killed and dumped under a bridge. Does not matter that they were Christian missionaries trying to bring peace, they were targets and the bad guys cannot believe thei good fortune when these nitwits arrive of their own free will.

The forces that conducted this mission did so under great peril and to free the misguided peaceniks who think that they can come to this most dangerous of areas and have some commo with the Islamofascists who are causing all this grief. The peaceniks all think that because no one kidnapped and killed Sean Penn it means they will be OK too. Not so. Hajji does not care what you believe in or what your motives are. You are are a straight up nitwit pawn in their game if they find you here.

I am surprised that we pulled this one off. I though for sure we would see at least 3 more beheadings from Al-Jazerra and screaming headlines from the MSM. Not so. This barely registers because the military did a great job on this one and no one was injured or killed.

The lack of public praise for our first rate shadow warriors bothers me tremedously but what bothers me even more is the complete lack of thanks shown by the three freed ingrates. Not only that but the contempt and abuse they heap upon the efforts here. The following was posted in a Toronto newspaper today.

We believe that the illegal occupation of Iraq by Multinational Forces is the root cause of the insecurity which led to this kidnapping and so much pain and suffering in Iraq. The occupation must end.“Today, in the face of this joyful news, our faith compels us to love our enemies even when they have committed acts which caused great hardship to our friends and sorrow to their families. "In the spirit of the prophetic nonviolence that motivated Jim, Norman, Harmeet and Tom to go to Iraq, we refuse to yield to a spirit of vengeance. “

We give thanks for the compassionate God who granted our friends courage and who sustained their spirits over the past months. "We pray for strength and courage for ourselves so that, together, we can continue the nonviolent struggle for justice and peace. “Throughout these difficult months, we have been heartened by messages of concern for our four colleagues from all over the world. We have been especially moved by the gracious outpouring of support from Muslim brothers and sisters in the Middle East, Europe, and North America. "That support continues to come to us day after day.

“We pray that Christians throughout the world will, in the same spirit, call for justice and for respect for the human rights of the thousands of Iraqis who are being detained illegally by the U.S. and British forces occupying Iraq. “During these past months, we have tasted of the pain that has been the daily bread of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Why have our loved ones been taken? Where are they being held? Under what conditions? How are they? Will they be released? When?

“With Tom’s death, we felt the grief of losing a beloved friend. Today, we rejoice in the release of our friends Harmeet, Jim and Norman. We continue to pray for a swift and joyful homecoming for the many Iraqis and internationals who long to be reunited with their families.

"We renew our commitment to work for an end to the war and the occupation of Iraq as a way to continue the witness of Tom Fox. We trust in God’s compassionate love to show us the way. “Living through the many emotions of this day, we remain committed to the words of Jim Loney, who wrote: "With God’s abiding kindness, we will love even our enemies. With the love of Christ, we will resist all evil. With God’s unending faithfulness, we will work to build the beloved community."

Where is the gratitude to the brave men who risked their lives to save yours? Where is their sense of decorum, reality, and sanity. There is a reason we have all those folks locked up. They would have cut their throats and tossed the bodies in the river.

I thank God that we have men and women willing to risk their lives so that others may exercise their right to free speech but that does not mean that I have to admire, like, or agree with the rescued party. In my humble opinion they are not only ingrates, they are idiots. Put down your bible and pick up a sword or else your churches in your home towns will be future targets of these proponents of worldwide religious dominion.
