"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Moon Bat(s) of The Week Award!

Canadians Jim Loney, 41, and Harmeet Sooden, 32, and 74-year-old Briton Norman Kember, all members of a Chicago-based
Christian Peacemaker Teams
Actor Richard Belzer share the spotlight!
No where did these pathetic creatures or their organization, Christian Peacemaker Teams, thank the U.S. Army Rangers and British troops who risked their own lives to save them. Instead they made the following, disgusting statement of irrelevance and misguided thinking. There web site claims they were "freed" as if their militant captures suddenly felt sympathy for their ill advised mission. The fact is, the U.S. military and coalistion forces saved them.
We believe that the illegal occupation of Iraq by Multinational Forces is the root cause of the insecurity, which led to this kidnapping and so much pain and suffering in Iraq. The occupation must end.
Today, in the face of this joyful news, our faith compels us to love our enemies even when they have committed acts, which caused great hardship to our friends and sorrow to their families. In the spirit of the prophetic nonviolence that motivated Jim, Norman, Harmeet and Tom to go to Iraq, we refuse to yield to a spirit of vengeance. We give thanks for the compassionate God who granted our friends courage and who sustained their spirits over the past months. We pray for strength and courage for ourselves so that, together, we can continue the nonviolent struggle for justice and peace.
Throughout these difficult months, we have been heartened by messages of concern for our four colleagues from all over the world. We have been especially moved by the gracious outpouring of support from Muslim brothers and sisters in the Middle East, Europe, and North America. That support continues to come to us day after day. We pray that Christians throughout the world will, in the same spirit, call for justice and for respect for the human rights of the thousands of Iraqis who are being detained illegally by the U.S. and British forces occupying Iraq.
An addenda was later released, to little too late!
We have been so overwhelmed and overjoyed to have Jim, Harmeet and Norman freed, that we have not adequately thanked the people involved with freeing them, nor remembered those still in captivity.
We are grateful to the soldiers who risked their lives to free Jim, Norman and Harmeet. As peacemakers who hold firm to our commitment to nonviolence, we are also deeply grateful that they fired no shots to free our colleagues.
They failed to recognize the terrorists who did, in fact, fire shots and killed their American colleague.
Calling this disgusting ilk "Moonbats" is too kind. They are a low form of human being, hiding behind religion, making statements of no basis or fact and implying the men who released them are evil. We ask, who the people who killed your colleague Tom Fox? Are they your protectors, your champions, your saviors?
Actor Richard Belzer of Law and Order SVU, appearing on Bill Maher, had some disgusting remarks about troops in Iraq. Referring to troops pride and knowledge of their mission in Iraq, Belzer responded to “ask them” is “bullshit” since, apparently unlike him, “they don't read twenty newspapers a day.”
“Doesn't mean he's a brilliant scholar about the war because he's there,” referring to a step-mother commenting on her soldier, stepson fighting in Iraq. “God bless your stepson. Doesn't mean he's a brilliant scholar about the war because he's there. And God bless him.” Host Bill Maher interjected that Belzer's point was that a 19-year-old is in the army “because he probably couldn't find other employment."
"You think everyone over there is a college graduate? They're 19 and 20-year-old kids who couldn't get a job. It's this patronizing thing that people have about if you're against the war everyone's lumped together. You know, the soldiers are not scholars, they're not war experts. They're not the best people to ask about the war because they're gonna die any second.”
Belzer is a conspiracy theorist who authored the 1999 book, “UFOs, JFK and Elvis: Conspiracies You Don’t Have to Be Crazy to Believe.” His NBC bio notes that “he hosted and produced The Belzer Connection, a series of conspiracy-theory prime time specials for the Sci-Fi Channel.”
Similar to the rest of Hollywood, Belzer lives in a Sci-Fi fantasy world, filled with insecurity, self-indulgence and lack of fundamental facts about distant worlds on planet earth. He believes everything he reads (in 20 papers daily) and insults the heroes on the ground in Iraq. Belzer is the moon bat who needs the reality check!
