I ain’t endorsing or offering free advertising or nuthin’ here, but there’s a company called Ranger Up that makes some really awesome t-shirts geared towards trigger puller types. I just received in my inbox their latest flyer advertising a new shirt. On the front is a Crusader shield with the quote “May the Lord have mercy on my enemies”. On the back is a grunt with an M249 and the words “because I won’t”.
Now that’s cool enough in it’s own right if’n y’all ask me, and I just know that you were dying for my opinion on it. But what’s really awesome, what really stoked the flames in the cockles of my war mongering heart, was the description that went with the shirt.
There’s a growing belief in America and the Western World that people deserve a million chances, that terrorists are just like us, but misunderstood, and that if we were only more cognizant of other cultures feelings, we’d all live in perfect harmony.
The truth of the matter is that we’re sure our enemies have a thousand good reasons why they want us dead. We’re sure that their cultures, personal religious beliefs, or views on life point them towards the notion that the only path to righteousness is to wipe us, our families, and our culture off the face of the Earth.
But that ain’t gonna happen, because you’re standing on that wall.
The rest of our society can make excuses for our enemies, explain how it is our fault, drop clichés like “violence begets violence” and “an eye for an eye just leaves the world blind”.
But you guys?
You’re just gonna kill the bastards. (emph. mine – crunch)
Yup. My kinda peeps. 🙂
