I showed up this morning to check up on Donnie. What I saw, shocked me! Since he did the post on the Marines going against the Marine that protested, this was the first time I got to see him. He was nothing like the person I know. He was very livid about this person named Ron, that has attacked again. The man lost a part of himself when he posted against the Marine Corps in that post. It made him ill to do it, and yet he thought it was the right thing to do. If you knew him, you would understand what it took for him to speak out. He reminded me of the old days when he got back. He now has that look that stares off, and is thinking of other things when speaking to you. Something has pissed him off! For the first time in many years, he scared me. He is thinking, and is about to make a move. He’s about ready to start a revolution! Enough is enough, seems to be going through his mind now. Blogger attacks will be soon to come if I know him. I pity the fools that have earned his ire, and receive his anger.
One thing I can tell you about the man, is that he does not know how to quit. He may want to, and say he will, but you will have that man on your ass forever if you piss him off. Loyalty is something that he believes in, but not to the point of letting it cloud his senses. But if it is the right thing to do, then you are in for a fight. I once watched that man pick up someone bigger than himself by the throat. He did it in the defense of a woman, and spoke in a deep voice. He asked the man if he now wanted mercy, or the same treatment he gave to the woman. The man chose mercy, and he gave it to him. He then help to straighten out the guy’s clothes, and told him to go in peace! Now this is where it got funny, he turned around and winked at me. He said that might be known as peaceful aggression in some people’s eyes!
It blew my mind, but I knew then, that he understood that keeping the peace, and protecting people sometimes meant you have to be on the offensive. Some will always want war and try to bring hate to the rest of the world. But we still have some that are willing to give all to help make it a better place to live. That made me think about the rest of the Marines. They are trained to do a job, but down in their souls, they do want peace for us. That does seem to be their job, but if the need arises, they are there to issue out punishment to those that would dare to violate that peace.
It’s no wonder that people still sign up for the Corps. Even in the time of war, being a Marine is something we don’t fully understand. These are people that are brothers forever. How can we ever fully understand that without Marines that are willing to talk to us? We hate this war, but some among us can tell us why people still do it. I not only pity Ron, but I think he is lost. Lost in his own ego, and his own world the he wishes to live in. Some have fought for their lives, and fought for this nation. But all things Ron are the words of the day. How shallow you must be.
So I don’t know the people here yet, but I know Donnie, and if he says you are okay, you must be a great bunch of people. If he leads the charge, I am right behind him. Unlike Ron, Pamela and Donnie are leaders. They try to bring the group together, and that is not the MO of Doc! Biased? You bet your ass I am! You Ron Chusid, suck the big one!
SWOOSH, clean swipe of the blade!
