A soldiers “thanks” to the MSM
I have a very close friend in “the ‘stan’ right now. He’s one of my Eagle Scouts, watched him take to the wilderness since he was about 11. He’s a 1st LT. now. Here’s his facebook post this morning:
“I would like to thank the liberal media for turning an innocent cultural mistake into a book burning atrocity against all muslims. When you accept your paycheck from your western based media corporation and go to sleep tonight in your safely guarded American built building, will you also take responsibility for the soldiers who were killed by their own afghan partners because of those stories? I'...d complain about the hypocrisy of denouncing civilian deaths while you now incite deadly riots, but somehow its hard to find compassion for the same people that are now calling for the death of all Americans. Sleep well in that bed knowing the soldiers protecting you now lock their doors and have to watch the very afghans living within those same walls as closely as the Taliban outside.”
He’s a great young man, please keep him and his troops in your prayers.
