A tiny bit of comfort

This story found in the PI

A soldier sees and feels a wider variety of sights and emotions in a year than most people will experience in a lifetime. ...
In my short time in the military I have experienced more suffering than I could have imagined before joining up. I have held the hand of a dying Marine who had only one last wish: that someone would be with him and hold his hand as he passed on. So I sat there with a strange man, holding his hand, not saying a word, until he died. ...

I have watched grown men cry, and cried with them, as we stood in front of the traditional memorial of a rifle thrust bayonet-first into the ground with the fallen soldier's helmet and dog tags draped on the weapon. His empty boots stand at attention in the fore of this tableau.

My heart broke when I gazed upon a little girl, no older than my own 5-year-old, crying and begging in broken English for food and water. I have awoken from sleep in shock as it finally dawned on me how close I came to death on a recent patrol. I have lived in fear that I would never see my family again, or that my daughter would grow up without her daddy. ...
On one of those days in Iraq where I wasn't sure if I'd see my daughter again, I was working at a checkpoint near a small camp in the desert. ... The locals would gather around our checkpoints to try to sell us things, beg for food or water, or just hang around the soldiers.

On this particular day one of the locals had his little girl with him. She was shyly watching me from behind his legs. When I smiled and waved at her, she brazenly ran up to me with a big smile and held out her arms, expecting to be picked up. At first I was shocked at her sudden bravery, and it took me a second to reach down and pick her up. When I did, she immediately kissed me on my cheek and then nestled in as if she meant to stay a while.

I looked toward her father and he immediately began talking rapidly in Arabic and gesturing at me. Our translator quickly explained that he, the father, had been locked in a prison for most of the child's life. He had been sentenced to death for being a Shiite dissident traitor. The man went on to say that soldiers wearing the same patch on the shoulder as I was (the 101st Airborne Division) had freed him shortly after we began the liberation of Iraq. His daughter from then on believed that the famous Screaming Eagle patch of the 101st meant that we were angels sent to protect her family.

I sat in a little folding chair with that girl in my arms for well over 30 minutes. She trusted me so completely that she had fallen asleep with her head on my shoulder. All of my fears and worries faded as I held that little miracle. It had been so long since I had held my own daughter that this episode was even more healing for me than it was for her.

I have often wondered if, on that day when I missed my family so much, it wasn't a coincidence that she found me, of all soldiers. Maybe it was that innocent girl, and not me, that was the angel sent by God.

Coincidence? I think not!

Donald Trump for President!? BWAHAHA...

I hope he does run! It will off set the delusional Hillary if he ran! Between lame stream media, the Don and Hollywood talk about desperation with in the mix! They even made a comment on one of the soap opera’s with the media saying “Sometimes we just don’t get things right.” Some times!? I just happen to catch that one at work in the TV room. There was a reason for me to hear that one. God does work in mysterious ways. I was having a bad day and he thought I needed a laugh.

Funny how the Don remarked that Iraq is a mess, has he ever looked in the mirror at himself!? His woman only loves him for what he can give her and it isn't him! It's the money and media attention! Remember that guys! Money only gets you attention and nothing more!

Censorship!? This is my place!!!

So I will say and do what ever the hell I want to! If I should go to a site that has a problem with me I will stop going there! I know they are against the freedoms that I believe in and that they can't take a joke! Wet blankets if you will have lost my time with them!

Just for your information: Yes this is a blue site only because I like the color! It really is a republican site and if you are not with me you are against me and my country! You or no one else can ever destroy my spirit! You have no right to do that, nor the power!

By the way I loved this little article from Little Green Footballs!

My pledge to you, my loyal readers, is that Razor Sharp Claws will continue to provide the blog with my own input of information. I will continue to push it right to the edge, using and defending the First Amendment in the most responsible way I know how.

dcat ^..^

Now I will go finish off my chocolate bunnies! One is complaining of his ass hurting and the other can't hear!

It's Video Time Kids!

This video is very impressive. It shows that our guys can take out a single store in a strip mall, from the air, and barely disturb those shopping in the other stores.

Let's roll! Thanks Neonknight!

Oh and have a great Easter!

Undo Postage

The US Postal Service created a stamp with a picture of Senator Hillary Clinton to honor her achievements as the First Lady of our nation. In daily use it was shown that the stamp was not sticking to envelopes.
This enraged Senator Clinton, who demanded a full investigation. After a month of testing, a special presidential commission made the following findings:
*The stamp was in perfect order. *There was nothing wrong with the applied adhesive. *People were spitting on the wrong side.

Spare me you dumb shit liberals! I know that most of the stamps are self stick now. Republicans would never buy the stamp in the first place! Spit on it? I probably would pass the opportunity to buy one! After the propaganda of teaching kids at a rally about hate I am surprised that the democrap party will ever do well again. Unless they become more criminal then they already are!

(This is pertaining to the school that had a rally with a radical guest speaker and the students had to stay and listen to her! They were not allowed to leave!!! Her claim was “Republicans hate Latinos!”) Can anyone stoop any lower!

Maybe I would buy one of those stamps and paste it on the post office window some place with a canceled stamp right over it! Or how about return to sender!

Teddy Roosevelt

If only he were here today!!!

Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN
"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." Theodore Roosevelt in a letter to the American Defense Society in 1919.

"Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or to leave the country," he said in a statement to the Kansas City Star in 1918. "English should be the only language taught or used in the public schools."

“We can have no "50-50" allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all.”

Extreme Islamist are the unclean here!

Here is a wonderful comment from Hameed. Once again he is giving light to this madness! We will win this! I know the forces of good and it will be that good people will sense the evil presence with just a look. We will have that knowledge.

Speaking of evil presence Shiva a friend of mine just gave me more links about back ass Islam. I will post these links at the end of Hameeds wonderful speech. Soon people will be converting to Christianity like mad! No body will want part of a religion of darkness. But you know not all of Christianity is normal either. Only the good know that right path to take. It is being taken by the way. Below is the comment made at IRAQ THE MODEL by Hameed.

Dear Mohammed and Omar,

Further to my comments above, I have contacted one person in London who is connected with UIA in Baghdad and told him about my above article about murdering innocent Sunnis, like those bearing the name OMAR, so that a Fatwa by Sistani or any other Religious leader, should come out as soon as possible to condem this practice without delay. And do whatever to stop this stupid Genocide. Saddam did this to the Kurds and Shias. Zarqawi and the Ba'athists are repeating it with people name (Haider) and the like? Now the Shias are doing it in reverse? Ethnic cealnsing is an ugly word, but it seems to fit here? This is exactly what the enemies of Iraq's freedom want. If we all allow this to happen with impunity we are as bad they are. We become ppart of the problem? It is no good fighting a losing battle. Because, sooner or later a violent reaction from the superior forces of the free world will come down on those lawless elements with a ton of bricks? Some areas will be carpet bombed to become flat in few hours? Look at Fallujah. Look at Telafar? Look at Najaf and Kuffah? The USA/UK policy of Clear, Hold and Build will come into force very soon. The SAS and Seals may have been sent there already. So watch it dickheads? You are no Match. Give it a rest or else you will be meeting your virgins sooner that you think? Leave the Sunni Innocent families to live in Peace in their country Iraq amongst you. They are equally entitled to a quite life like everybody else? What will happen next? Killing all the Jews? Killing all the Christians? Killing all the Yazidis? or Killing all the Mendaei's ( the Sabia'a?) and killing all the Hindus and other minority relgius groups? Have you all gone Mad?
Kind regardsHameed Abid 04.02.06 - 12:01 pm

The answer Hameed is yes they have and we have the remedy!
