Blackwater and Biden

Recently a federal judge dismissed the case brought against five Blackwater security guards charged with manslaughter in the shooting deaths of 17 Iraqis in 2007. End of case, one would think so, but not with the current bunch of military haters now in and around the White House. Granted the Blackwater security guard are not military, but they are as close as you can get and most if not all are former members of the armed serves of this country. With those in the White House going after SEAL's this is not surprising. It seems to me that the "military hater's" will do anything to strike out against our men and women in the military and those who work hand in hand with them.

A dismissal by a judge usually means end of story, but not with this bunch for they will move heaven and earth to put a notch on their gun. Not a notch for some dispatched enemy of the state, but a special one reserved for those who are trying their best to protect us.

Iraq was a war zone in 2007. Iraq is still a war zone and mistakes in the heat of battle will be made. And to hold these men responsible for any deaths in under such conditions is unacceptable. When almost every Iraqi man on the street carries a fire arm and explosions and shots are being heard from all quarters these men had the right and the duty to fire back. They were charged with protecting government and civilian personal and were simply doing their duty. It's regrettable that innocents were killed in the cross fire, but that is war!

Vice President Biden indicated that an dismissal of the charges against these men was NOT an acquittal and that the justice department would appeal the court's decision.

We have become use to this hatred by the American left over the years for any action taken by the U.S. Military and supporting groups. It seems the only time the left has anything positive to say about the military is when they are used in such things as the current effort in Haiti or when they have completed and won a hard fought battle and are returning home. On those occasions the left will suddenly admit they have done a great job. But the time, when the air is full of smoke and lead, at that time they will call our brave men murderers and war criminals. During that time they will repeatedly said the battle is lost and call for retreat. Those on the American left are the "sunshine patriots" who will wave the flag when the victory is won, but during the battle they will cry defeat, call for retreat and never, never step forward to support the troops. These "fair-weather" soldiers are not needed and they more than the enemy on the battlefield are the gravest danger to the state.
