|Marine Corps Lance Corporal Edward J. Dycus, 22 years old of Greenville, MS.|
Executed by his Afghan Army counterpart on February 1, 2012
Wouldn't it be a good thing if Americans were made privy to the truth surrounding the death of this young Marine? The Pentagon released a statement alleging that LCpl. Dycus was killed during combat operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. The truth of course, is that LCpl. Dycus was cowardly executed by an Afghan Army soldier who shot him in the back of the head. Why would the Pentagon lie to the American people about the circumstances surrounding this Marine's death? Because corruption in Washington, D.C., may start at the White House, but it certainly doesn't end there. Where is the apology from Hamid Karzai?
In all my years, I've always assumed that politicians lie to the people, make promises that they can't possibly keep, and in actuality never intended to keep. Like most Americans, I became accustomed to the political lies, and like most Americans, I expected them, and accepted the lies as normal. While the political lies are the norm, the expectation and acceptance of the lies should never have become the norm. For many years now, the American people overlooked the lies and the corruption of our President and the other legislators, sadly that is how we arrived where we are today. Our Presidents and Representatives have become so accustomed to lying to the people, that falsehoods spew from their mouths like lava from a volcano. Our Presidents and legislators know we will accept the lie, because that is all we've been getting for all these years. Cover-ups, back-room deals, and blatant, bald-face lies are constantly coming at Americans from those big grinning and smiling legislators like a speeding bullets. Bullets aimed at the very heart of America.
Through it all however, there was always this sacred trust, a bond, if you will, between the American people and their military leaders. The Generals and the Admirals were always respected and held in high regard, as they, above all our leaders would always tell us the truth. I regret to inform you, this is no longer the case. The Generals and Admirals, those to whom we have entrusted the very lives of our sons and daughters, have been corrupted by this and other administrations. The once honest and trustworthy hierarchy of the United States Military have become as dishonest and corrupt as those civilians who appoint them. As a veteran myself, I have always defended the integrity of the military from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, to the newest recruit. It appears that even the highest ranking officers in the Pentagon have now submitted themselves to this administration, and are now aiding the President in lying to the American people. The Pentagon has dishonored themselves by spreading lies about LCpl. Dycus' tragic death. They have dishonored themselves by placing the whims of a corrupt Socialist/Progressive President above the truth.
So, I have to ask, is this the end of honest and responsible government and military leaders? The Senate and the House have been rendered irrelevant by this President, the courts have been corrupted as well. Now, the last bastion of honor left in Washington, D.C. has been tainted.
I don't know about you folks, but I get this empty, sick and hollow feeling in the pit of my stomach, when I think about what our nation is becoming.
It was written in a recent article that, "America will one day laugh at itself for taking Barack Obama serious". I think: "America will weep for the same reason".
