I read the following this morning, written by an anonymous Marine in response to the murder of 5 members of the Armed Forces, 4 Marines and one Navy serviceman, earlier this week in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

There is really little to add, except that this Marine…and ALL Marines, active duty and all others who have served…need to know that in this war (and make no mistake, we are in a war regardless of what POTUS says) huge numbers of Americans will be standing, and fighting, with them.

I was never in the Marines, but reading this man’s words makes

me wish I had been.


How every single Marine feels right now:
Congratulations, ISIS.

You wanted attention, and yesterday, you got it. Only, you chose the wrong people to seek that attention from.

You did not get the attention of our weak President. He tweeted his support for your medieval holiday following your cowardly attack.

You did not get the attention of our useless and corrupt Congress. .

They were too busy lining their pockets.

When you attacked those four Marines, you got the attention of every one of our 186,800 active duty Marines, along with every Marine who ever served.

You just stirred up hate, discontent, and malice within a group of people who relish the idea of engaging the enemy.

There is something you obviously don’t yet know about Marines…

The brotherhood we share is stronger than the challenges we face, the weapons we master, or the enemies we destroy.

You will learn that soon though.

You attacked a group of men who bond over the smell of gunpowder and misery—and enjoy it. You didn’t attack America’s leaders, you attacked America’s Marines, and that is a battle you are not prepared for.

You see, we won’t play by the rules you’re accustomed to seeing.

When you play in our backyard, we don’t have to answer to any chain of command. We will not follow ridiculous ROEs crafted by a spineless bureaucrat to appease some goat herding tribal leader. .

And we won’t be wearing uniforms so that you can easily ambush us.

Nope. None of that shit.

When you think you’re walking into a target-rich environment, you’re really walking into an ambush.

That pudgy, middle-aged guy wearing khakis in the mall, who unbeknownst to you, is a former 0311 and armed, will dump your sorry ass before you have a chance to scream “allah snackbar.” .

And that soccer mom pushing a stroller, she’s got a Glock and will happily leave you gasping in a pool of your own blood before she lets you hurt her children.

We are here and we still have the training and experience to wage war, whether here or abroad. And wage war we will. Every one of us are willing to fight and die to protect our Marine Corps brothers and sisters, our families and friends, and our way of life.

And we will win, because while you fight to destroy what you hate, we fight to protect what we love.

Semper Fi!

Which do I enjoy the most? It’s a toss up between fishin’ and baiting politicians.

    It won’t just be Marines and former Marines. It’ll be everybody who loathes cowardice, evil and savagery.

    They have no idea with whom they’re dealing.

    As a socialist friend once said to a communist friend, “Don’t start believing your own propaganda.”

    Everybody from the British in 1776, to the Comanches, to the Japanese in WWII, to these ignorant 10th century animals has convinced themselves that we’d just roll over and give up. The truth is that the cowards pushing the narrative of submission and surrender have no means of imposing it upon the rest of us. They can tell us to let ourselves be murdered til they’re blue in the face. People will just ignore them as they’re doing more and more every day.

    One of these clowns is going to fail VERY badly in the victim selection process. And we’ll laugh and laugh as the fifth columnists in the media cry over his bullet riddled body.


      I’ve wondered for a long time what it would take top wake people up to the danger to our republic from enemies both foreign AND domestic…to wake them up to the point that folks would finally have had enough and actually do something besides whine and cry.

      Last Thursday tragedy in Chattanooga…and Washington’s response to it…may just be the answer to that question.


    THIS is what it boils down to = fighting For the Servicemen & women,,,, b/c the overall state of mentality of the country, due to poliTICKS lining their pockets, monsanto, oil, Unions, pharma, banks, ALL news agencies [the list goes on & on] who have not only wrecked this Fine Country but the Huge % of occupants [many may be ‘citizens’ but they behave & vote like welfare recipients – so lets call em what they Really Are = occupants] have listened to the bought-and-paid-for-news ,,, and so, they sit in silence and comfort that someone Else will Say & Do Everything to keep them in their Shameful living condition …… All of This is What has happened to America …. So Now, those who will wage the conflict against Tyranny & Terrorism = Good Armed Forces & Vets, along with some Good Police and some Good actual ‘Citizens’ …. the rest will hide and or be targeted by the Enemies of the FREE MAN of which This Country was Born Out Of. So Our Brothers-In-Service have been stirred-up and have the Cause For Protection you describe in your Fine letter. Thanks for your Service.


    I support what Bob said about America finally waking to the threat that is both foreign, and especially, domestic. I only hope he is right that people will respond, but history has shown that far too many people in this country get excited about a tragedy like this – for a couple of days – then it’s back to business as usual. On the bright side, in the early 1770s the population was split roughly in thirds for federalism, loyalty to the king, and those who didn’t care either way. So, with only a third of that population in favor, the country was extricated from a foreign tyranny. Perhaps that’s all it will take now to extricate us from muslim tyranny.
