Our Media Are Too Cowardly To Report On Real Heroes……
I knew that the Marines and soldiers clearing the vipers nest of Islamofascists in Fallujah were doing it down and dirty when I saw a photo of Marines preparing to clear a house. Each and every one had a bayonet attached to their rifle. In this age of push button warfare, laser and GPS guided bombs, and UAV’s which can read a license plate from 20,000 feet, these grunts were destroying the enemy with the oldest weapon in the infantryman’s arsenal, cold steel. Cold steel, and an even stronger resolve.
As I watched the battle unfold live on network TV, I told my son that there would be stories of heroism coming out of that battle that would rival any from any previous war. And so it was with Sgt. Rafael Peralta, USMC.
Why isn’t a man like this a headline in every newspaper in the country?
Hit several times in the face and chest, he fell mortally wounded back from the door. M16’s and M249 SAW’s blazed away at the enemy in a fierce firefight as Marines stepped over his body to engage the enemy, mere feet away.
As Sgt. Peralta lay bleeding on the floor of the crowded room, a grenade landed in the middle of the Marines. In the last fleeting moments of life, Sgt. Peralta reached out and pulled the grenade to his chest. Rolling on top of it he smothered the blast with his body.
I would say that our media should be ashamed of themselves for not reporting on real heroes like this, but their sense of shame has withered to the point where they have none. Their idea of a hero are the eunuchs who protest with the likes of Code Pink. They can’t – won’t – understand a man like this.
Read the rest at the Anti-Idiotarian Rottwelier. It’s a good investment of your time.
If the spineless liberals in the main stream media won’t honor him, we should.
