The Soldiers Come Marching Home

Soldiers in LutonTwice in two years they have fought in Iraq. Twelve of their regimental comrades paid the ultimate price there and in Afghanistan.

Over the past two years they have spent day after day patrolling hostile territory, where every passer-by could have a gun or a bomb.

So the 200 men of the 2nd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment perhaps had a right to expect a heroes’ welcome yesterday on a homecoming parade through Luton.

And despite the headlines and the MSM spin, they did receive a warm welcome from their fellow countrymen as they marched through town.

Yes, the predictable Muslim riff-raff, their degraded culture in full display, were on hand to muffle the joy of return, but they didn’t succeed. You have only to look at the pictures of regular folks on the streets to know that these boys – no, these men – were being welcomed home most heartily.

There are lots of pictures at the site. I recommend scrolling down, looking at the pathetic Muslim women huddled by themselves in their cloaks of mourning. What woman wouldn’t mourn her fate at having to dress like that? At having to live like that?

Look at the shot of the hate-filled dead eyes of the three men standing by themselves, especially the one in black on the right, next to the man with the camera.

Not everyone made it back. It was respectful of the Daily Mail to pay their respects by putting up the photographs of the fallen soldiers. And I’ll bet it was the ones who can’t return that were on the minds of those who marched so tall through the streets of Luton.

A Lament

We who are left, how shall we look again
Happily on the sun, or feel the rain,
Without remembering those who went
Ungrudgingly, and spent
Their all for us, loved, too, the sun and rain?

A bird among the rain-wet lilac sings
But we, how shall we turn to little things
And listen to the birds and winds and streams
Made holy by their dreams,
Nor feel the heart-break in the heart of things?

How to return, indeed, when you know the heart-break in the heart of things…

  1. How depressing it must be for those soldiers who experienced in Afghanistan the full bitter fruit of what Islam brings, centuries of intractable backwardness and hatred, only to return and see its tentacles reaching their home country. The widespread dhimmitude by their nominal leaders must be especially painful. The elite were busy giving the homefront away inch by inch while Britain’s armed forces were suffering and dying to help Muslims halfway around the world who seem unappreciative to say the least.

    The new strategy should be to pound out any Muslim country that is a springboard for attacks on the west but otherwise leave them to do with each other what they will. People devoted to Islam and sharia cannot be dragged forcibly into civilization. Let them stay in their backwaters until they develop an interest in building for themselves rather than destroying what others have built.

    Needless to say, like-minded Muslims should be deported from all Western countries to their backwaters of origin starting with Saudi funded Wahhabi imams preaching sedition in western mosques.

  2. Despicable!! Those unshaven and dirty throwbacks should not be accepted by any western and modern society.But I can see the same ingratitude from so many Europeans towards Americans:close Guantanamo;question CIA flights of terrorists;Illegal war on terrorists?!USA #1 enemy?? Perceiving the right circumstances in real situations becomes blurry and unjust from all sides,you see.
    I will never understand how these throwbacks can be so united and one voice and our people, so modern and high-tech, could be so fragmented and almost delusional that their politicians will take care of them.I have never seen a white power demonstration,anti-Islam-demonstration, anti-gay demonstration, anti-atheists demonstration…Maybe..

  3. Laine, do not dispair. The soldiers might be bringing with them some very updated knowledge – inclusive how to treat the muslims in UK.

    Listen to their stories first. Let us apply this knowledge in UK or elsewhere.

  4. Whoops, I knew there was something I meant to say: in some of the papers, Choudary’s comments on his website are mentioned. It seems that for now, the site is down. One wonders why … Anyway, no problem, I took a screen capture earlier today of Choudary’s remarks, and uploaded that to photobucket. Click on the relevant link, then go “full screen” size and there you’ll see it, in all its glory.
