In India, the jihadists committed unimaginable horrors to their victims.  Here’s an excerpt from a post on Atlas Shrugs:

“Of all the bodies, the Israeli victims bore the maximum torture marks. It was obvious that they were tied up and tortured before they were killed. It was so bad that I do not want to go over the details even in my head again,” he said.

Corroborating the doctors’ claims about torture was the information that the Intelligence Bureau had about the terror plan. “During his interrogation, Ajmal Kamal said they were specifically asked to target the foreigners, especially the Israelis,” an IB source said.

Asked specifically if he was talking of torture marks, he said: “It was apparent that most of the dead were tortured. What shocked me were the telltale signs showing clearly how the hostages were executed in cold blood,” one doctor said.

We are in the fight of our lives with radical Islam.  They planned Mumbai for a long time, they wanted to kill 5000 people.  They went out of their way to find Jews and Americans, to torture and murder them.  You want peace?  You get it by destroying this evil.  The far-left peaceniks better pull their heads out of the sand or they’re gonna wake up one day and find its too late – and they’ll be crying for the troops to protect them.   Some day they’re gonna be sorry that they tried to keep the troops from finishing their mission.

The Chester County Peace Movement (CCPM) protestors love to mock President Bush and call him a criminal, the world’s biggest terrorist, and blame America for the 9/11 attacks and terror around the world.  But you never see them holding signs that criticize Al-Queda.  Or demand that radical Muslims stop their sneak attacks or ask Muslims to name and root out the terrorists among them.  They only hold signs that criticize America or us.

In the last 24 hours we’ve seen yet another barbaric attack against western targets in Mumbai, India.  It might be half a world away, but the target is you and me.  The muslim terrorists in India sought Americans, British, and Israelis to take hostage.  Heaven knows what these terrorists will do to these western hostages.  Reports have been made that the terrorists told the hostages to ”show us your passports” so that they could identify if they were American or English or Israeli.

When will the CCPM seek real world peace and demand that the radical Muslims STOP WAGING WAR against western targets?  Why is it so easy for them to only make demands against America?  Don’t they realize that their signs and actions have consequences that prolong the war and cause more American troops to be killed?  Don’t they realize that they are helping the enemy?

What does the CCPM think about Al-Queda’s plans to attack the subway and railway systems in New York City?

Is the CCPM aware that a group of young Somalians are “missing” in Minneapolis, Minn?  It’s possible these people have been recruited by muslim terror groups.  The FBI is looking for them.

It would be a small miracle if the peaceniks would hold a sign telling the muslim terrorists to give peace a chance.  If America stops fighting, do they think the Muslims will too?

UPDATE: At least 125 dead and over 300 wounded by terrorists in Mumbai (formerly Bombay) India.

A brisk sunny day greeted the Sheepdogs at our rally today.  This was an outstanding uplifting rally, punctuated with our traditional singing and praying at the end.  Thanks to everyone who came out. 

The highlight was the arrival of Gary and his daughter Erica.  Gary had emailed to say that Erica wanted to take part in this Victory movement.  We sang “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” just for her today.  Their presence and Gary’s email (below ”EMAIL FROM A PATRIOTIC FATHER) made today’s event extra special. 

Love Erica’s sign.

Kathy and Mike all wrapped up in Red, White, and Blue.

Thanks to Gary for sending sending this uplifting email.

Hi Richard,

My Father was a veteran and it was a breath of fresh air to attend my first rally just before the election!  Unfortunately, he passed away in April, but I know he’s proud to see me taking part in the rallies.  He loved his country and displayed a large flag on a pole in his front yard.

Due to my work schedule, I was unable to attend the past couple of rallies, but I will be there in 8-1/2 hours for this Saturday’s showing.  I am divorced with three daughters (16, 13 & 11) and they live with their mother, but I get them when I can and I call them every night.  I told them all about the Sheepdogs and that I had attended a rally (they really liked the singing of the Battle Hymn).  Here’s where this gets really special…Last Sunday night, during my nightly call to the girls, my oldest daughter (Erica) asked me what time the rallies took place.  Erica is a perennial distinguished honor student who excels equally in music and typically she works every Saturday at a supermarket.  Well, she floored me by asking if it would be okay if she could come with me this Saturday.  She said, “I have to work @ 1:00, so if you can have me back home by 12:30, I want to come.  Can we make a sign?”  Understand that she is 16 and has a boyfriend, so she now has her own life and almost never sleeps over here.  Well, I stopped at AC Moore for sign supplies after work last night and picked Erica up when she got home from work.  I am in the middle of making our sign right now, and we’ll be there…even if it takes me all night to finish!

See you then!

We’re looking forward to meeting you and Erica today and we’ll sing the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” again today!

Patriotic Americans come together every Saturday in West Chester to show the troops and their families that we are behind them and want them to come home with victory and honor.   At the end we sing the National Anthem, recite the Pledge of Allegiance, and pray for our Troops protection and success.  We had a huge turnout and another fantastic uplifting experience.  Thanks to all “The Sheepdogs” who make it happen!

Among the many highlights at the rally were the 5 children who came to show how much they love and repect our men and women in uniform.

These patriotic kids are Maria, Billy, Kacie, Gaige, and Tailyr.  They raised our spirits with their beaming faces and charm.

Bob and Kevin (home from Kuwait) wave the Flag.  Notice: in the background, we always have an Israeli flag at our rallies.  Israel is our best ally in the Middle East and is defending itself from muslim terrorists who launch rockets from the Gaza into Israel, every day.  Too bad the “peace” protestors don’t demand that Hamas and Hezballah terrorists stop attacking innocent civilians in Israel.

Three Vietnam Vets stand up to support the Troops.

Two Irish ladies and a blogger (Skye) stand behind our Armed Forces.

Grease, John, Rich, Joe, and Bob -form a Wall of Red, White, and Blue.

Love this sign!  Thanks to the Rich and Steve (above) for bringing it.

The smiling faces of patriotic kids.

The signs speak for themselves.  Doc’s poster shows the VetForPeace reps talking in Venezuala with press and Hugo Chavez.

Decent Americans proudly support America those who defend her.

A couple soldiers stop by on their way to their National Guard training.  We are always thrilled and honored to have our “Greatest Patriots” stop by to say hello and thanks for the support.

Carl, President of the “Delco Cruisers” came by to say “Thanks for coming to our ‘Salute The Troops’ event” and surprised us with an unexpected donation.  We loved being a part of “Salute The Troops” and look forward to doing more events with the Delco Cruisers.

Of course, no rally would be complete without the “peace” protestors on the other side of the street, doing their best to demoralize our troops and undermine their efforts.  They use the term “Peace Vigils” but they are used by these extremists to make political points and statements that prolong war. 

The “Vets For Peace” come from Philadelphia.  They encourage our troops to disobey orders and will give them assistance and legal advice if they do.  They also seek vets to be part of the IVAW – a group that went to Washington to testify that our troops commit atrocities.

Prior to our arrival, the above is what our troops (and their families) had to see every week in West Chester.   These protestors have been hurting our troops and dividing our town and country every weekend for six years.  Maybe one day they will practice what they preach and stop their war against patriotic Americans who disagree with them and want to show support and stand behind our troops who are sent into harm’s way to protect our freedoms and rights.

We received a comment from a leftist regarding the “CCPM protestors mock our troops with caskets and tombstones” post. 

The writer shows his intolerant true colors as he spews his hatred for us.  Why?  Because we are regular decent Americans who are proud to show the US Flag and support our troops and their mission?  Because we stand behind our troops and don’t undermine them?  

These leftists think that if you wave the flag and are proud of your faith, that you are a facist.  This writer resorts to the typical name-calling demonizing that we’ve seen from the Chester County “Peace” Movement (CCPM) since day one when I showed up with a sign to support the troops and America and got jostled and cussed at by the hypocritical “peace” protestors over a year ago.  Read it for yourself.  It’s from someone called “USNA Ancient” 

but then fred phelps and his band of christian gouhls represent “the true faith” … don’t you people ever wonder why the rebubbacan party has become a minority band of pathetic, small, redneck, undereducated [if at all] sheep following the “american taliban”, far-right, fanatic, wing-nut evangelicals … I’ll tell you; WE’RE MAD AS HELL AND WE”RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE ! We’re disgusted with the dog and pony show known as Pinnocchio and Gepetto [or geo. dubya shrub and darth vader and the rebubbacan obstructionists in Congress], the “amerikan taliban” headed by ayatollahs robertson and james dobson and all their holier-than-thou imams, just to name a few … either fall in the help try to salvage the American dream or shut the hell up and get out … take your ignorance somewhere else along with your white sheet robes and pointy hoods ! “When fascism comes to America, it wii come wrapped in the flag and bearing a cross”. Well you’ve come and lost, now what ?

The cut and run, anti-american protestors have resorted to using disgusting props such as flag-drapped caskets and tombstones to dishonor American troops and demoralize their families.

When you go home,
Tell them of us and say,
For their tomorrow,
We gave our today.

-The Kohima Epitaph

2002 Veterans Day Speech by President Bush at Arlington National Cemetery

One veteran, a company commander in the Normandy invasion, returned many decades later to the cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach. He said, “Standing there in appreciation and sadness and long-postponed grief, I could only wonder, why not me?” Millions of veterans have asked themselves that same question, and it has helped to shape the course of their lives.

Veterans do not take life for granted. They know that duty and sacrifice are more than words. And they love America deeply, because they know the cost of freedom, and they know the names and faces of men and women who paid for it.

The term “veteran” conveys more than a rank held in the past. Military service forms priorities and commitments that last for a lifetime. Every person who has put on the uniform, whether in time of war or in time of peace, has also felt a new sense of responsibility.

Dwight Eisenhower once recalled the day he began his military career. “The feeling came over me,” he said, “that the expression ‘the United States of America’ would now and henceforth mean something different than it had ever before. From here on, it would be the nation I would be serving, not myself.”

Long after their honorable discharge, our veterans still symbolize what it means to be a citizen. Go to any community in this country and you will find veterans in positions of service and leadership. In so many ways, veterans live out the meaning of patriotism and idealism and concern for others. Those of us who are the children and grandchildren of veterans have seen those qualities up close — each of us is better because of the influence of a veteran. And so is America. (Applause.)

America must, and will, keep its word to those men and women who have given us so much. Veterans have been promised good health care when they are sick and disabled; they must be treated with fairness and respect.(Applause.)

And to families across this land with loved ones whose fate is still undetermined, America owes the fullest possible accounting of our prisoners of war and those missing in action. (Applause.)

Every veteran once stood ready to give all for our country, and they know that a true soldier never welcomes war. This nation loves peace. We work and sacrifice for peace. Yet America must always be prepared to confront and defeat the enemies of human freedom. (Applause.) And when war is forced upon us, we will see it through to victory. (Applause.)

At this hour, members of our military are serving on the scattered battlefields of a new kind of war. In Afghanistan and beyond, they’re on the trail of killers who brought death to the innocent and war to our country. That mission will go on until the terrorists who struck America are fully and finally defeated. (Applause.)

This new kind of war also requires us to confront outlaw regimes that seek and possess the tools of mass murder. We will not permit a dictator who has used weapons of mass destruction to threaten America with chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons. This great nation — (applause) — this great nation will not live at the mercy of any foreign plot or power. The dictator of Iraq will fully disarm, or the United States will lead a coalition and disarm him. (Applause.)

Over the generations, Americans in uniform have defended this nation without seeking to dominate any nation. American troops do not come as conquerors, but as liberators. (Applause.) We believe in self-government for every land; and we believe that freedom is the hope of people of all cultures. (Applause.)

By standing for freedom today our military follows in a great tradition of courage and faithful service. Free nations are in debt to the long, distinguished line of American veterans, and all Americans owe our veterans our liberty.

On this Veterans Day, we honor veterans and we honor their families, and we offer the thanks of a grateful nation. May God bless our veterans, and may God continue to bless the United States of America. (Applause.)

The bright windows in this 3rd floor apartment, light up the streets of West Chester and are seen for blocks…. just like Times Square in New York City.



Any other ideas for the sign?

This is a subject close to my heart. Do you know that we have adult students at the school where I teach who are not US citizens and who get the PELL grant, which is a federal grant (no pay back required) plus other federal grants to go to school?

One student from the Dominican Republic told me that she didn’t want me to find a job for her after she finished my program, because she was getting housing from our housing department and she was getting a PELL grant which paid for her total tuition and books, plus money leftover.

She was looking into WAIT which gives students a CREDIT CARD for gas to come to school, and into CARIBE which is a special program (check it out – I did) for immigrants and it pays for child care and all sorts of needs while they go to school or training. The one student I just mentioned told me she was not going to be a US Citizen because she plans to return to the Dominican Republic someday and that she ‘loves HER country.’

I asked her if she felt guilty taking what the US is giving her and then not even bothering to become a citizen and she told me that it doesn’t bother her, because that is what the money is there for!

I asked the CARIBE administration about their program and if you ARE a US Citizen, you don’t qualify for their program. And all the while, I am working a full day, my son-in-law works more than 60 hours a week, and everyone in my family works and pays for our education.

Something is wrong here.  I am sorry but after hearing they want to sing the National Anthem in Spanish – enough is enough. Nowhere did they sing it in Italian, Polish, Irish (Celtic), German or any other language because of immigration.  It was written by Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way it was written. The news broadcasts even gave the translation — not even close. Sorry if this offends anyone but this is MY COUNTRY.

IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP — please pass this along. I am not against immigration — just come through like everyone else. Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay your taxes, live by the rules AND LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other immigrants have in the past — and GOD BLESS AMERICA!
