The Pacific

I just got done watching "The Pacific." And it didn't take long for the anti-Americanism to start. Not long into the first episode a bunch of soldiers on their way to Guadalcanal ask "what are we doing here?" "Why are we here?" Look, I know that it only took liberals 6 months to forget about 9-11 but I'm pretty sure that on August 7th 1942, 8 months after Pearl Harbor that every single soldier, and civilian remembered that event. Then after the first nights fighting one of our soldiers and a central figure for the show began feeling sorry for the Japanese. Taking out a family picture from an enemy soldier and thinking to himself, they're just like us. I wanted to yell at the tv, except for Pearl Harbor, that Imperialism thing, that vicious racism against anyone not Japanese. But then again that's how liberals see things. It's all about moral relativism. They aren't any worse or better than we are. This sure isn't anything close to Band of Brothers. I suppose Hanks didn't like the Nazi's, oh yeah, Hitler fought against his precious Russia and Stalin. I guess that makes sense.

I remember the day Pearl Harbor was bombed. No tv in most homes but radio and newspapers carried the story. Dec 7, 1941 was a day most all Americans who were living at the time will never forget. That was when almost everyone was patriotic, even the school children (I was in school at the time). Never heard of anyone being "anti-American." Today it's so common we don't even think about it when we see it. What a sad change of events have taken place. Back then our president upheld the United States of America. How great it was to see patriotism alive and well.

Patriotism is a thing of the past in our country anymore. How did we ever get to this point? It's as if the constitution, the flag, the will of the people don't matter anymore. It's all politics.
That's all that seems to be important to the Washington leaders. Our kids and grandkids will never enjoy the freedom and peace that we have had in our lifetime. They are going to have to carry a load like we have never before seen.
