Thumbs up Lt Col Allen West Fired - Should Have Gotten a Medal!

Two Black Americans were elected to congress this cycle, and both are Republican. One was retired army Col. Allen West from southern Florida and he won in a walk.

This new Congressman was an extremely popular commander in Iraq. He was forced to retire because during an intense combat action a few of his men were captured. At the same time his men were captured one of the Iraqis who captured his men was captured.

Knowing that time was crucial and his interrogators were not getting anywhere with the prisoner, COL West took matters into his own hands. He burst into the room and demanded thru an interpreter that the prisoner tell him where his men were being taken. The prisoner refused so COL West took out his pistol and placed it into the prisoner's crotch and fired. Then the COL told the prisoner that the next shot would not miss, and the prisoner then said he would show where the American service members had been taken.

The Americans were rescued, and someone filed a report on incorrect handling of prisoners, and COL West was forced to retire.

COL West was elected in November 2010 to Congress from Florida. During the elections he was part of a panel on how to handle or how to relate to Muslims. You will see his answer here explaining in just over a minute the truth about Islam. It's a fascinating listen.

Welcome to today's new PC military. Next will be the Marine Rainbow Brigade.
God help this country if we're ever attacked by a really strong enemy.

This is a revised version of an old email. This one is almost true. But No Americans were ever captured or held prisoner. West heard that there was an assassination attempt planned for him.and that this (There was an ambush earlier that they thought may have been related to this plot) Iraqi cop Yahya Jhodri Hamoodi was was in on it. Other Iraqi soldiers beat up this guy to try to get the info.(This is also how we got info in Nam - the local police and RVNs had a lot more "leeway" shall we say in terms of interrogation). Then West came into the room and when the Iraqi didn't cooperate more he fired his gun "near his head" . They eventually found there was no plot in the end. But the discipline part is correct and West resigned.

I hope we see Allen West for a long time. He is definitely a breath of fresh air.

If we are fortunate to be able to vote for West for president, the country would find that race is not an issue - it's policies and people!

Col. West is the most refreshing person elected to Congress in the last election cycle. It's even more refreshing that he was elected in South Florida. Maybe there are voters that really look at and listen to the candidate.

Hopefully the press will give his outlook, attitude and vision the coverage deserved. He's the real thing but sadly the press is enamored with Trump because it's "fun".

We have got to get real AMERICANS in congress and the White House and West offers some real potential.
