A letter to any one with a sense of humor, and respect for the military.

Debbie: Well it has been a while, you hate mongering, homophobic, lying, Earth destroying Nazi bigot!

Alp: Ah! Thanks for the warm love filled welcome from the under standing left wing, but I would remind you that Nazis are national socialists and for that you will need to ask; Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi she is the base of knowledge on socialism and Nazis.

Debbie: You are truly a racist pig, I saw that note you wrote to Mr. Martin Roland and I did not like it what the hell do you know you backward redneck.

Alp: Well I call it like I see it and if you remember the term redneck is an honorable label. Let’s get on with the Humor.

Letter: Mr. Roland

Mr. Roland

Sir I read your article describing Confederate soldiers as terrorist. I let that sit a while so as not to make a rash judgment on your article.

The definition of a terrorist is: The unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property in order to coerce or intimidate a government or the civilian population in furtherance of political or social objectives. (thefreedictionary)

The key word being: unlawful.

After all coercion and intimidation by the government is a long standing tradition, have you ever received a letter from the IRS?

Your premise that any one who fought for the South was a terrorist is at best weak and at the other extreme, your line of thought lacks depth and understanding of the fundamental issues, it marks you as a political hack.

The Preamble of the Confederate Constitution reads:
We, the people of the Confederate States, each State acting in its sovereign and independent character, in order to form a permanent federal government, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity — invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God — do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Confederate States of America.

The original American colonist declared independence, had a constitutional convention and eventually we wound up with this: We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The difference between the original American colonist and the Confederacy is the south lost.

So Mr. Roland after reading your work, it appears every group of people who seek freedom are terrorist and by your own logic every solider whether his family had slaves or not was a terrorist. Also it would seem that from your perspective all who defend there homes or even fight is a terrorist.

I think sir that you are confusing terrorism with the racism residing in your own heart.

I would point you this way: jus ad bellum and jus in bello , Just war, not how it is conducted but why.

Further more your analogies to soldiers and terrorist is underwhelming.

If you where drafted and you served would you be a terrorist? Or using another example; Confederate soldiers wore shirts do you where a shirt? Are you a terrorist?

Thank you for your time and reading my opinion.
Isaac Alp Bradley

PS. As a personal note, I am proud to live in the south, but I would not change history and I am even prouder to be an American, even though America may have a less than sterling history it is still the best place on the planet.
