    The lady who wrote this letter is Pam Foster of Pamela Foster
    and Associates in Atlanta . She's been in business since 1980 doing
    interior design and home planning. She recently wrote a letter to a
    family member serving in Iraq . Read it!


    "Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was
    it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on
    September 11, 2001 ?

    Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not
    brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac
    from our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

    Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a
    horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?
    And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was
    "desecrated" when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it
    wet? Well, I don't. I don't care at all.

    I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and
    repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

    I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East
    start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a
    crime in Saudi Arabia

    I'll care when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi tells the world he is
    sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his
    gurgling slashed throat.

    I'll care when the cowardly so-called "insurgents" in Iraq
    come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion
    by hiding in mosques.

    I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in
    search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their
    suicide bombs.

    I'll care when the American media stops pretending that their
    First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law
    instead of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.

    In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine
    roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't
    care.

    When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners
    who have been humiliated in what amounts to a college-hazing incident,
    rest assured that I don't care.

    When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is
    told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to
    the bank that I don't care.

    When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a
    prayer mat, and fed "special" food that is paid for by my tax dollars,
    is complaining that his holy book is being "mishandled," you can
    absolutely believe in your heart of hearts that I don't care.

    And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled
    "Koran" and other times "Quran." Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and ---- you
    guessed it - - I don't care ! ! ! ! !

    If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your
    e-mail friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for
    this ridiculous behavior!

    If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button.

    Should you choose the latter, then please don't complain when
    more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great
    country.

    I am not deleting this, I am sending it on, but only after

    I add:

    --"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made
    a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem."

    -- Ronald Reagan

    I have another quote that I would like to add AND.......

    I hope you forward this such as I have.

    "If we ever forget that we're One Nation Under God,

    then we will be a nation gone under."
    also by... Ronald Reagan

    I, care,






    About out Soldiers, Coast Guardsmen, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen!

    Why do the liberals bend over back wards to treat Moslems like they are a first class religion, and must be treated with special resepect. All other religions are second class, and can be scorned?

    This is a great message and should be reviewed by all FREQUENTLY !!!!!

    Thanks for posting it, ISB. It needs to be read and reread often.....

    For the record, though, this was not written by Pam Foster, merely forwarded by her once she saw the original, which quickly developed into an "Internet Myth". The original was written by Doug Patton, a freelance columnist and political speech writer. The original may be seen here:

    http://www.gopusa.com/commentary/dpatton/2005/dp_0606p.shtml

    It was first published on the gopusa.com web site on 6 June 2005 under the title "Ask Me if I Care About 'Mishandling' of Koran".
