    To Kill an American
    You probably missed it in the rush of news last week, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.
    So an Australian dentist wrote the following to let everyone know what an American is... so they would know when they found one.
    An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani, or Afghan.
    An American may also be a Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as Native Americans.
    An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.
    An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.
    An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.
    An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need.
    When the Soviet army overran Afghanistan 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country! As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan.
    Americans welcome the best, the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food and the best athletes. But they also welcome the least.
    The national symbol of America, The Statue of Liberty, welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America. Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001 earning a better life for their families. I've been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 other countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists. So you can try to kill an American if you must.
    Hitler did.
    So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-tung, and every bloodthirsty tyrant in the history of the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

    I thought this one was worth the effort to clean up and share with all of you. No words were changed.

  3. At one time it was a pretty sure thing that if you killed or tried to kill an American, that we, the USA would come after you and hunt you down and kill you. We used to protect our citizens. That time has apparently passed, some years ago. Thats a shame, for now it seems like open season on Americans where ever we may be. Even here at Home....... :mad:
