Man With You Know What

My hero is Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters.

Ralph Peters is a retired army officer, Fox News commentator, novelist and author of non-fiction books. Mr. Peters is a man who the American people want to hear speak on the current and future state of our country…and the people who run it. He tells it like the American people want to hear it. Americans are angry.

“There will be no peace,” Peters stated in a 1997 Constant Conflict article. “At any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple conflicts in mutating forms around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and ultimately more decisive. The de facto role of the US armed forces will be to keep the world safe for our economy and open to our cultural assault. To those ends, we will do a fair amount of killing.”

It’s his opinion and how true that statement is. He states it the way most Americans feel with conviction and anger. He is our hero…the voice that represents our feelings.

On a recent Fox News program. a news anchor, Stuart Varney, asked Mr. Peters for his opinion of the president’s message to the American people on the terrorism situation. Lt. Colonel Peters said, “This is a president who cares more about thugs in Guantanamo or thugs in Ferguson, Missouri, than he does about law-abiding American citizens that have a right to live in safety and peace.”

So, Mr. Ralph Peters, we like it when you get your dander up…we know you’ll be our voice and hope that those in high places will hear and take stock of your messages.
