She called him a baby-killer
I was in the neighborhood store chatting and a young man came in. I don't know how it came about that he stated that he was a Marine and on leave from Iraq. It did come about though and I looked at him and told him, 'God bless you hon - and thank you'. He got a strange look on his face. The look disappeared when a neighbor and friend of mine - in the Army and on leave from Iraq as well - went up to him and shook his hand and slapped him on the back.
That's when he told us that a woman had called him a baby killer yesterday. I said, 'BABY KILLER?!' Yes he said. He tried to explain to her that he did not kill babies - he tried to explain to her that if it were her son over there she may not feel that way about him. I just told him, 'Bullshit - honey you shoot that weapon if anyone in Iraq threatens your life. Just shoot and shoot and shoot.'
I love a Marine.
God bless all of our men and women in the military. And thank you, too. We do love you - and we know that you are the best. We know that you care about innocent life and that you are not baby-killers.
Outrageous. Baby killer indeed. Why...if I got ahold of that woman she'd screaming for mercy.
