A (former) US soldier writes...

When someone comments on a year-old post, it's either one of two things: spam or someone so rigidly opposed to what you wrote that the bile has risen so far up that they just have to let it out. Therefore, in the interests of balance, here's in full what Sergeant First Class Cheryl McElroy (RET) thinks of my Scum-watch: "Prophets are rarely honoured in their own land" post.

The Iraq war was a suicidal act?
Scuse me, sweetcakes, but Iraq is just one of the battlefields in the war on Islamofascism. We've beaten the Taliban and Al Qaeda into slushy pulp, which puts you lefties in a real funk.
In case you forgot, America was attacked by thugs supported throughout the Middle East, by Muslim zealots hellbent on a world Caliphate.
In case you don't get it, they want to kill us. They proved that on 9/11. What's the matter? Didn't the London bombings hit close enough to your own backyard?
Personally, I'd have leveled Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Afghanistan (for starters)on 12 September 2001. But, I'm a former Soldier, not a pusillanimous apologist for Islam. Our policy should be simple: you attack us, we annihilate you, your supporters, your country, everything.
Hussein was a WMD-wielding megalomaniac who supported al Qaeda. He thumbed his nose at every resolution enacted by the U.N. including Res. 1441, which in conjunction with Congressional approval, gave us the authority to use military force. You ought to read it some time.

Hussein's terrorist connections:
The Mother of All Connections: http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/005/804yqqnr.asp?pg=1

WMDs found:
1,500 gallons of chemicals believed destined for attacks on U.S. and Iraqi forces and civilians.

1.77 metric tons of enriched uranium and roughly 1000 highly radioactive sources.

Warheads loaded with Sarin
IEDs and artillery shells containing Sarin


We did not wait until Hussein had the ability and chance to use them on U.S. forces in the region. I was over there, and I'm damned glad we eradicated the son of a bitch and destroyed the WMDs we found.

Afghanistan, conspicuously absent from your complaint, was a major operating base for Al Qaeda. Lots of dead Taliban there, too. No body counts for them in your blog? Tsk, tsk.

Oh yeah, and your quote about the Iraqi dead being
"somewhere in the region of between 200,000 and up to 1 million Iraqis, the median being 650,000" is total bullshit.

First of all, the “sources” and the assertions made in the phoney Lancet study funded by leftwingnutbag George Soros, claiming the astronomical deaths, has been thoroughly debunked


and here:


Leftwingnuts have no shame for their blatant attempts at presenting fiction as fact.

There are brave Soldiers, American and British, who are putting their lives on the line so ingrates like you won't have to worry about being subjected to Sharia Law. At least act as if you're worth the sacrifice.

Sergeant First Class Cheryl McElroy

Slight update: Here's Cheryl's blog, linking to all the usual neo-con/anti-jihadist/Islamophobic crowd and it seems from a reply to another left-wing al-Qaida apologist who secretly wants Sharia law who dared to disagree with her that this was something of a stock response.

Wow - "Islamofascist"; "caliphate"; "sharia law"; a link to The Weekly Standard - it's neocon bingo.

"phoney Lancet study funded by leftwingnutbag George Soros"


Truly wondrous. That's us told. When do we start bombing?

'Sweet Cakes'?!
So, I take it that Mel Gibson has finally decided to tackle the 'islamofascists' has he? Well, I for one am looking forward to his next torture filled epic. I'd suggest the title ' We Were Soldiers' but I think that one's already gone.

Hehehe, how marvellous "America was attacked by thugs supported throughout the Middle East" and trained by the CIA (American) before having their skills honed by the IRA (funded by Americans).

"Personally, I'd have leveled Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Afghanistan" but not Saudi Arabia, never Saudi Arabia.

"Hussein was a WMD-wielding megalomaniac who supported al Qaeda." Well he did have WMDs after he was sold them by us, then got rid of them before turfing AQ out of his country for religious differences.

Is she for real? Oh wait her blog's called the FOXhole, suddenly everything makes sense.

Oh, fer gawd's sake. If you can't take the feedback, regardless of the date of the post, then close out the comments.
But, thank you so much for the link. I expect to see some of your fine posters visit my blog and leave billious comments, which I will gladly respond to. Kim, the "left-wing Al Qaida apologist" is far more articulate than your fan club seems to be.

FlipC: I'd go after Saudi Arabia, too. I'm for real, sweetcakes.

I think you'll find that I can take the feedback, just that I found it so hilarious that it needed to be shared with everyone else. Also, I don't think any of their replies can be accurately described as bilious (not billious, incidentally), more as a faintly mocking and incredulous. Be sure to come back regularly: we could all do with a good laugh.
