WAR DRUMSSeptember 01, 2014
There is a lot of evil being let loose in the world right now, spreading like cancer in our old stomping grounds. A godforsaken place most of us swear we hated and never wanted to see again as long as we lived. Hell, we swore it off each time we left, but there we were chomping at the bit to Get Some And Go Again after a few months of stateside life. Seeing the atrocities being inflicted on innocent people halfway around the world has a way of getting your heartbeat up. Your heart starts pumping so hard, you hear it in your ears as you stare with anger and disgust at the evils being done. That's the sound of #WarDrums.
Evil men using violence to threaten the local populace into submission and killing those who would stand tall and say 'No.' Well gentlemen, I took a solemn vow to Liberate the Oppressed and I am joining in and I say 'No' as well. I don't care what color you are, what god you worship, or what country you call home. I hate bullies. I hate those cowards that get ahold of a big stick and start pushing around people, just because they can. I have a lot of hate in my heart for that sort of cowardice and I say it is high time we ALL say 'No' and draw a line in the sand. You want to push people around? Well, I want to push back. You want to kill those who refuse to submit to your tyranny? Well, I want to spit in your eye and tell you just one thing. 'No.' I hear those #WarDrums and they are calling to me. Calling to me from across the ocean.
You want to visit evil upon my fellow man? That's fine. I have more than a few years experience of returning that favor. You want to spend your days plotting and rejoicing in your evil way? That's fine. When you sleep, I will be the hammer raised over your skull. I'm not good at much but killing and I was starting to think my days were over and my story written. I guess I forgot there are always a few rabid dogs willing to guest star in the next chapter of freedom. I hear other #WarDrums and I think I want to join the dance. To my fellow war junkies, I only want to ask one thing: Will you "Follow Me" one more time?
One of these days, the terrorists' free ride is going to end. You're going to be choking on ashes, ashes from your own funeral pyre. And I am going to be the asshole with the eyes dancing and flickering in the flames. So if you think you can do evil and escape judgement, prepare yourselves.The thumping of OUR outgoing mortars is going to sound like a heartbeat. #WarDrums. The beating rotors of our helicopters. #WarDrums. The stomping feet of the American family man, coming for you. #WarDrums. MK-19's and .50 Cals. #WarDrums.
I don't dread the siren call of war. My heart beats in synch. #WarDrums
