Why I HATE the MSM, Reason #1,034,583
WARNING: VERY STRONG LANGUAGE FOLLOWS. And here is why.
Note to the MSM….
You need to get your heads out of your asses and quit putting the HEROIC Japanese workers on the same moral plane as JIHADI THUGS. The Japanese techies are HEROES in every sense of the word, and what they are doing is an act of SELF-SACRIFICE.
What they are doing is comparable to what Marine Cpl Jason Dunham and Navy SEAL Michael Monsoor did. They threw themselves on live grenades, saving the lives of their teammates. Dunham and Monsoor were awarded the Medal of Honor, posthumously.
What they are doing is comparable to what Delta Force snipers Randy Shughart and Gary Gordon did. They inserted themselves in a firefight–going against the recommendations of their commanders, and knowing they had almost no chance of surviving–to save a downed aircrew from certain death. CWO Michael Durant ended up surviving. Shughart and Gordon were awarded the Medal of Honor, potshumously.
Neither Dunham nor Monsoor nor Shughart nor Gordon were death-worshippers who saw death as the greatest honor. They did not glorify suicide; they embodied the value of self-sacrifice that made them exemplary Marines (in Dunham’s case), SEALs (in Monsoor’s case), and Rangers (in Shughart and Gordon’s cases). They accepted death so their teammates could live. They voluntarily took one for the team.
The Japanese nuclear techies are heroes in every sense of the word. They have taken on a dangerous task–at great risk to themselves–on behalf of their compatriots who are already under severe duress from the quake and tsunami. If they succeed, this is Apollo 13 on steroids. They might even survive.
To put these workers in the same boat as Jihadi death-worshiping thugs is a FUCKING outrage.
