Capt B Comes Home

In the commentary section of the April 12 post "Antiwarriorology," a guest appeared by the name of Capt B.

He's a Marine captain, and one of the excellent milbloggers (i.e. "military bloggers) on the Web today.

Milblogs like his should be read by every American, as you see the front lines through their eyes and get first-hand accounts of the environment they're in, the action they face, the progress, and how they feel about what they're doing and the mission at hand.

Reading them, you will realize the disconnect between, on the one hand, the reality on the ground and what resides in the hearts and minds of our elite warriors, and, on the other hand, the "debacle" that is portrayed by an elitist media and decried--if not mocked-- by Bush-hating, "antiwar" liberals everywhere who shamelessly presume to speak on the former's behalf.

You will realize how truly out-of-touch the latter is, both in regards to the mission and of the soldiers seeing it through.

And you will realize that the fine-tuned intelligence of the soldier is insulted by the Left's "We support the troops!" charade, knowing it to be a mock-patriotic cover for the actual undermining of the mission's success.

They're trained professionals who know all about devious strategems and can see right through theirs (as they overwhelmingly saw through John Kerry's masquerades).

And they're men and women who grew up very quickly way back in boot camp, and don't appreciate being referred to as "our boys and girls" or "our kids" or "our children" by the simpering Left who are simply trying to exploit and manipulate the emotions of their parents and other Americans for political gain.

And they don't appreciate the insurgent-like, character-assassinating attacks on their Commander-In-Chief.

Above all, you realize what kind of soldiers--what kind of people--are fighting for you and me:

The Best kind.

In the ancient world, solders said: "We want to learn how to fight like Greeks."

In today's world, soldiers on the Iraqi security forces say: "We want to learn how to fight like the Americans."

But their fierceness in battle against America's enemies is matched by their gallantry towards their fellow Americans:

Republicus visited the blog of Capt B to welcome him home from Iraq, as did many others.

And the good captain found the time to grace this blog with a visit.

For that, Republicus is honored and, once again, welcomes him home.

Republicus would like all of his readers to drop by the blog of Capt B and also welcome him home.

All you have to do his click here:

It is highly recommended that you read his posts, and this soldier's, as well:

Also, in the December 18, 2005 post "Support the Troops," Republicus provided a link to information on how we civilians can do our part to aid and abet our soldiers and make life a bit easier for them while they do their work away from their home and families, and here it is again:

Here is another good link just provided by guest chtrbx:

Our soldiers are the best trained and most effective and fiercest fighters in the world today.

The U.S. Army--despite being vastly outnumbered-- would beat the largest army in the world--the Chinese Army-- on the field of battle (and the Chinese know it).

The only way they can lose a mission is if we lose it for them (and the "antiwar" crowd knows that).

Support the troops.

And support their missions.
