When I was in boot camp, some years ago, I was threatened with an Art 15, if I did not attend a church or Synagogue; I was an Atheist. I was 17 at the time and a buck private, but I was not to be intimidated, even by a full bird Colonel.
I spent five years in the military, as an MP, attaining the rank of E-5. My last year was spent in Vietnam fighting in the jungles against the VC and in the
bars against drunk solders. I never stopped being an Atheist and earned a couple of medals.
There is no question that these god fearing Islamists must be destroyed, but do it for the right reasons, not for or because of a perceived god, who is to protect our military, because, in all honesty, he is not very good at that.
Might makes right, not prayers, churches or St. Christophers medal around a dead solders neck.
I have been in a couple of bar fights and you will loose if you are not committed to win. This is a bar fight and there is a stench in the room and blood on the floor and you better be willing to hurt somebody really bad.
