Triple Amputee Veteran’s “Screw You” Letter To Obama Goes Viral!

My Open Letter to Obama.

I nearly died in a war that you and most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it’s something that warriors like myself have zero control over. I joined to serve my country and to better my life. I’ve seen things that you could never imagine, and they have made me the person I am today.

Mr. Obama, even though we share extreme opposite views, we have one thing in common, we both attended school in Hawaii. However, that’s where the similarities end. You see, as you attended your exclusive, private school, I would ride my bike to Kaimuki High school in one of the roughest areas in Hawaii every morning and would ride past Punahou, the exclusive private school you attended. I would notice the Bentleys, Maserati’s, and fancy foreign cars that all the kids were dropped off in; wow it must have been extremely rough in Hawaii living that life, right? I could only imagine what it was like to have that kind of money. Fortunately for you, not many people are aware of the school and the upper class citizens who attended it. The tuition to attend your exclusive, private school was more than it cost me to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Arizona. You talk a big game when it comes to financial inequality, yet I’m quite sure you have no idea what it’s truly like to have sacrifice. You were one of the elitist children in Hawaii.

After High School, we each chose very different paths. You were able to attend Ivy League schools, and I sought out a military career to in hopes of earning a degree. What we have in life as children usually sets the tone for what we will face later in life that will make us successful. I worked to get where I am today, and YOU WERE HANDED IT….Mr. Inequality.

I volunteered to go to Iraq on both of my deployments, and the second time I begged to go even after I wasn’t selected, which ultimately got me placed on the team where I would lose both legs and my dominant arm. I’ve never asked myself was losing 3 limbs in a war worth it, even though many Americans were against it.

I am frequently reminded of the many young Iraqi children who would beg me for water, food, and toys while I was stationed in Iraq. Children, who in all aspects made the poorest of poor American children look rich. You have no idea what it really means to be poor. It’s laughable that you, who would have no idea what it means to be poor would so frequently play the inequality card.

While I was in Iraq, our mission was to liberate the Iraqi citizens from a tyrant and that’s what we did. Never forget, it was your people who sent us there, like the Clintons, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi & Carl Levin. However, since the day you busted onto the scene you’ve been talking about ending the war and pulling the troops out, not understanding the blood sweat and tears that so many Americans and Iraqi’sinvested. And with complete disregard for every life sacrificed, every limb lost, and every broken family, you bailed on our mission to pursue an agenda that was completely centered on your re-election in 2012. If you didn’t bail on Iraq you were worried that you may not get re-elected and that’s a fact. Just before elections on Oct 11, 2012 you said “Al Qaeda is on the run and Osama bin Laden is dead.” Look at Iraq now, they are in shambles and the Al Qaeda flag is flying freely. Clearly, you’re unfit for duty as a Commander in Chief. You put your own agenda ahead of America’s agenda, and now you have single handedly ruined and destroyed nearly everything we gained in Iraq. It clearly means nothing to you, because the only thing that you’ve personally invested in that country was a promise to bail on them. However, people like me gave limbs, friends have died, and we’ve watched families destroyed by war’s aftermath.

I’m not placing blame on you for the war, I’m placing blame on you for destroying what we’ve worked so hard to build. You’re not a leader, you’re a community organizer. A leader would have stood up regardless of the situation and put America’s agenda first and that is ensuring a secure Iraq even after 10 years of war. But, you placed Barack first, just as Robert Gates confirmed in his new book. I can’thelp but think of those poor kids who I gave water and toys to 11 years ago. They’re probably 15 or 16 years old now, and I can only imagine what it’s like for them to have their nation being torn apart yet again; all because of your poor leadership qualities. Regardless of why we went to Iraq, its water under the bridge. We went there, we waged war, and we not only owed it to our KIA’s but we owed it to the citizens of Iraq. We invaded their country and turned it upside down, and you bailed on them. You bailed on our soldiers and you’ve wasted every death and every limb, it’s all for nothing. And to make matters worse you blame others for your failures.

You’re just another elitist rich thug who’s pretended to live the rough life growing up in the inner-city. You’re only worried about your own agenda and furthering your party instead of taking care of Americans. Your inability to be a leader at some of the most critical points has caused both of our wars to fail. You’ve been a joke to most of our veteran community and we have no faith in your ability to lead.

    THEIR TOTALITARIAN COLLECTIVE CORPORATE POLICE STATE IS IN FULL CONTROL AND THEY NEED TO BE DEPOSED AND REGIME CHANGE IS NECESSARY TOP TO BOTTOM.

    UNTIL THEN ALL OF OUR NIGHTMARES WILL NEVER END.
    THE US IMPERIALISM IS THE SCOURGE OF ALL HUMANITY.

    Mr. Kolfage’s compassion and commitment to the citizens of Iraq is commendable. Most of us would feel that sense of dedication if we experienced what he has lived through. But, there’s a bigger, more complicated problem in Middle East. These people have been fighting over religion, ethnicity, politics, sacred sites, and natural resources for over a thousand years. Add the religious terrorist/jihad factor and you’re trying to herd cats or pick up mercury. They just keep fighting.

    Brian,
    I am so sorry for your losses, but I cannot in good conscience thank you for you service.
    All wars are done for the rich elitist BANKERS
    on Wall Street, and their cohorts in Washington,
    and in the CONGRESS and the SENATE…and the
    Military Industrial Complex THAT IS A PART OF THESE ELITIST, CORPORATISTS, who are greedy warmongering, psychopathic war criminals.
    I’m so sorry you had to choose that route in life, because our evil corrupt, traitorous government that we pay enormous taxes to… chooses to spend over half of our $16 TRILLION GNP on going to war to make themselves filthy rich, rather than on free college, and health care like the rest
    of advanced countries around the globe.
    You feel deserted, and that we deserted Iraq. After we/they used Depleted Uranium, White Phosphorus Bombs, and Sarin Gas on their civilian population, they had to leave. And the young Iraqi’s have been told not to reproduce as the babies that are being born there are so grotesque, that there are no way to classify them in medical terms. This GENOCIDE delivered on them by the USA is their eternal hell.
    Oh yes!!! America brings Democracy!!!

    This letter was refused by the editors of The Washington Times, 24 May 09:

    A Conversion of Convenience

    I cannot erase my memories of the Lucasville prison riot 16 years ago–the carnage of twisted bodies in the yard, obsequious officials granting outrageous demands from a dark ‘cleric’ wrapped in flowing white Arabic attire, and my righteous indignation and disgust for the ignorance of those in charge caught off guard. Most of all, I remember my angered exclamation: “It’s a conversion of convenience, stupid! If you give in to them now, you’ll give ’em more later!” Ohio DOC caved and its gift keeps on giving.

    Between 1996 and and 2002, I was associated cheek-by-jowl with the beneficiaries of that pandering palaver and was appalled at the advancement of their agenda . During my tenure as a ‘medical director’ for two prison infirmaries in Ohio, I saw the arrogance of self aggrandizement among the inmates who adopted the ‘peaceful religion’ of militant Islam.* I wondered if their zeal for Allah would continue after they went back to the streets.

    In 2005, I sent a long letter to my congressman warning of many potential threats to our republic. Paramount was my concern of imminent danger pertinent to the subject broached above. Two years later, DHS began profiling imprisoned Islamic converts. The recent apprehension in New York is but a tiny tip of the ice floe poised to send this nation to Poseidon’s realm. The entity occupying the offal (sic) office is about to usher in that threat to every home in America–and The One doesn’t give a damn!

    He is an inveterate narcissist. Since childhood, his enablers have pampered him with constant praise and endless presents to feed his fragile facade. He is a natural with choreographed draws and feints on the court of political basketball. Against public outcry, his latest trick is to purge Gitmo of our unabashed enemies. His ukase is not for humane compassion. His motivation is to garner adulation from the sycophants of the Euro massif, whose affectation is the fascination with the drama of a tragic Shakespearean heroic victim on the world’s stage, upon which he is its insouciant pawn and harlequin fool for the puppeteers who yank his strings. By hook or crook, the usurper man will have his way again. His regime will orchestrate the inmate transfer soon. The enemies, ready within our gates, will try to spring their fellow felons from whatever super-max of their incarceration. Should they fail, they will nonetheless be victorious, for the virulent seeds will have been sown by the benighted checkered chameleon-in-thief of the blight house. More Lucasvilles, or worse, will doubtlessly follow. Rham will again whisper into Big O’s ear, ‘Never let a crisis go to waste.’ He may add, ‘You can always rely on that bone headed decision caveat if the petard blows up in your face.’ The crisis will be civic insurrection and EO 12919 its remedy. Then will arrive the march toward the final dissolution and consummation of the New World Order. Or will it be a new world odor from millions of rotting corpses without enough mortuaries and real estate available to inter them?

    PS: I tried but failed to apply Occam’s Razor to fillet the fat from this piece. I wished not to waste the warning of the crisis waxing among us. If you have the temerity to publish this, you and I may be extirpated for this expatiation. The little man, in love of crises he hates to waste and whose surname means God on earth, will place our names at the top of his red (s)hit list. From Ward Moore I borrow and say, ‘Bring On The Jubilee.’
