The Bad Guys

"And the award for Most Medals Crammed Onto an Already Ugly Uniform goes to..."
There is evil in the world. There are the "little evils" (that bastard that cut me off in traffic yesterday) and then there are the Great Big Evils (the dudes pictured above are sublime examples of this).

In between there are varying levels, sizes and shapes of evil. If we pay attention we can see them all around us. Sometimes we see it in person, sometimes we see it in the media. But evil is there, proudly on display.

Now you may ask at this point why I'm picking on the North Koreans. Simple, the Missus hails from the "Land of the Morning Calm" (i.e. the Republic of Korea or South Korea if you must). I spent four years of my military career in Korea. I came away very impressed with the Korean people. (Not to mention developing a taste for kimchi and other forms of Korean cuisine.)

The folks in charge north of the 38th parallel are truly evil. They are starving the common folk to death, literally, and have them so brain-washed that they thank their Dear Leader (or whatever the current a$$hat calls himself) for the privilege of living in such an enlightened society. And they want to spread their brand of "joy" to their "brethren in the South". These are definitely The Bad Guys.

The Republic of Korea deserves every bit of support the United States can provide. They are counted amongst "The Good Guys". Not to mention how they fought by our side in Vietnam. The VC were scared sh*tless of the Koreans. The Korean troops did not screw around, mess with them, you got your a$$ kicked.

And picture, if you will, the State of Israel, surrounded by enemies who have stated time and time again that their goal is to destroy Israel. No shades of gray there, they've said it out loud and make no bones about it, they mean it. Fortunately these Bad Guys collectively have some of the worst armies in history. Unfortunately there are any number of moronic politicians (an oxymoron I know) who think they can create "Peace in the Middle East" through negotiations and press releases.

Sure that'll work.

The Israelis should also be counted amongst "The Good Guys". The Israelis, like us, are now saddled with some extremely bad leaders in high places. But historically, the Israelis know how to kick a$$ when their backs are to the wall.

Yes, there is evil in the world. It's time people took a stand, enough of this moral relativism and shades of gray thinking. As Edmund Burke said:

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

Make a difference this November. We've had enough "Hope and Change". We've had enough bullshite coming out of Washington. It's time to step up and do the right thing. It's time we remind those a$$hats that they work for us.

It's supposed to be a government of the people, by the people, for the people.

Let's fix this alright? Let's not have to explain to our grandchildren why we let things get so screwed up.

Just sayin'...

    Heh. What I wanna know is why the Swells wear single-breasted uniforms while the rank and file wear double-breasted unis? More room for meaningless "Hero of the DPRK" medals? That must be it...

    As for the rest of the post, well-said. Evil does indeed exist and nowhere is it more manifest than in the DPRK.

    I loves me some kimchi, too! ;-)

    1. Yeah, I noticed the double versus single breasted tunics. I like your theory.


Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
