Read: [NetworkAztlan_News] Justin died for the racketeers + Response from Peta-de-Aztlan

Current Total Iraq Deaths: 1.2 Million  


Response: Justin died a meaningless death. He certainly did not die for me or my

family. He decided to put himself in a situation wherein his death became but

another tragic figure for those who do body counts and can keep track.





It is insane to applaud and mourn over U.S. soldiers who die in combat in

a war zone they should not even be involved in and are in as a direct result

of their own personal choices, their own personal decisions, their own karma!


Between here and death we must decide where we stand in relation to the

unjust wars being waged by the Amerikan killing machine. These U.S. soldiers

volunteered to JOIN ~ None of them were drafted!

When we support them in any way we are supporting the killing insanity that

spawns more killing insanity and that makes us partakers of that insanity. The
blood is on all our hands if we condone such bad behavior with evil intent,
though our fingers may not pull the trigger. Not having a job does not justify

joining a mercenary army, picking up a gun and fighting in the wrong war!


What alternatives do a defending force of insurgents who are in the country

of their birth have against armed foreign aggressors than to fight back by any

means necessary!


The biggest mistake any insurgency can make is the harming and killing of the

civilian population whether via collateral damage or plain poor military training.
Arbitrary suicide bombers who harm, injure or bring about the death of any

innocent civilians will have their own karmic hell to endure in the afterlife.


If you mourn over the death of soldiers who are out to kill my family you are

mouning over a meaningless death and insulitng my family. Anyone who

bursts into my sanctuary will fall a fool's death and never be found! And

the street dogs around here are always hungry!!!!!


We need to drop any naive liberal ideas about supporting those who are
objectively 'ENEMY SOLDIERS'! We should know who are our true FRIENDS and
who are our ENEMIES!

Nobody forces Amerikan soldiers to go fight and die in foreign wars that are
condemned by all compassion humane beings. The 'killer for hire' mercenary
mentality will come home to roost in our own backyards causing local havoc in
our own local communities, adding to the social costs of returning veterans
who will suffer from an array of psycho-social problems, such as, PTSD and bi-polar disorders and some will end up packing up our prisons even more than they are now!


Yes, arbitrary violence against the innocents is dead wrong, suicide bombers are

already insane and those who fail to condemn such actions condone them by their

own apathy. What about the armed fools who fight in unjust wars and die?!?!


Certainly an oppressed people who are being attacked have the sacred right to

defense themselves with all the weapons at their disposal. I do not want to hurt

anyone's feeble feelings or stab anyone's sensitivities, but we should not be so
stupid as to mourn over those who die in an unjust war participating in killing

native insurgents who are out defending their own lives, their own native lands
and their own natural resources in a land that we should not even be in as
foreign invaders in a foreign land!!


What are progressive activists going to do IF and WHEN the U.S. Imperialist Soldiers
are sent to Latin America to fight against indigenous peoples who are fighting for the

liberation of their lands?!?!?

Wake up! There are wars going on and these wars will take many forms and have
many manifestations. Know which side you are on and dare not get caught in the

crrossfire wondering which side you are on when bullets are flying and IEDs are
going off by remote control!!!!!

Education for Liberation! Venceremos Unidos!

"I wouldn't go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket." -- Major General Smedley Darling Butler - (1881-1940) Major General, U.S. Marine Corps

Hundreds says goodbye as Army Spc. Justin Dean Coleman is laid to rest at Florida National Cemetery

By John Frank, St. Petersburg Times Staff Writer

BUSHNELL — As the doors of the hearse opened, revealing the flag-draped casket, a warm August wind caused the American flags at Florida National Cemetery to stand at attention.

A bagpiper heralded the arrival with Amazing Grace, and military pallbearers wheeled Army Spc. Justin Dean Coleman's casket along the crushed seashell sidewalk, the family trailing behind..

More than 200 mourners placed hands to hearts or stiff salutes to sweaty brows.

A prayer. Three volleys. Taps. And a folded flag for Spc. Coleman's young widow, his mother and his father.

Spc. Coleman, a 21-year-old from Hernando Beach, died in a firefight with insurgents July 24 in a remote, mountainous region of Afghanistan near the Pakistan border.

In a brief memorial service Monday morning at Downing Funeral Home in Spring Hill, a standing-room-only crowd remembered Spc. Coleman as a teacher, a hard worker, a rival, a best friend, a hero and a brother.

A friend read a letter written by Navy Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Alex M. Murphy, who recalled how he and Coleman trained during their senior year in high school before leaving for boot camp.

"It was always an adventure with Justin," Murphy wrote from Camp Pendleton, Calif., where he is stationed. "Sometimes I wish I could have been there with Justin in Afghanistan."

Spc. Coleman enlisted in June 2007, shortly after graduating from Nature Coast Technical High School, largely against his family's wishes, and deployed to Afghanistan in January.
