Old Sarge: An Alternate History
UNDER THE CATEGORY “WHAT IF?”
Go back in time a bit with me, to experience an alternate history, how things might have been in a parallel universe.
The year is 2006. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are in full swing. Casualties for Coalition Forces are low, certainly compared to other wars in the past, but there is much concern in America about those casualties, and whether we are making any difference.
Geraldo Rivera is in Baghdad, sitting in a rest center with some American soldiers and Marines, a mixture of very fit, very professional men and women of our armed forces. Geraldo has gravitated to this group because there is a tension in the air about them, and a look of strain and despondency on their faces. The group is made up mostly of young enlisted people and young officers. They have something they want to tell.
Geraldo listens carefully, and as their story unfolds, his look of frightened anticipation turns to one of horror. What he hears from this earnest group literally turns his world upside down.
Geraldo Rivera learns that American members of the coalition forces have been witnesses to the sight of medical specialists harvesting organs from dead Taliban, Al Qaida, and other enemy war dead, and sometimes the organs of civilian dead as a result of collateral damage. These organs are being sold to medical establishments around the world, with profits going to the Department of Defense to help pay for the war effort. Geraldo quietly files the whole story with his parent news agency, tactfully withholding the names of the service members he talked to.
The news strikes the United States with a moral force ten times that of the My Lai Massacre in 1969. Condemnation pours in from around the world, even from such nations as Israel, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Australia. Democrats take up the cause with a vengeance, exploiting the crisis for the elections in 2007, and call for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. The long knives are out for everyone from the Secretaries of State and Defense to the local commanders on the sites of the aforementioned vivisections. Political analysts doubt if the Republican Party can survive the political and moral upheaval. Churches are packed throughout the nation, filled with despairing people asking God for personal forgiveness and forgiveness for America.
Okay, now come back to reality. We know without a doubt that Planned Parenthood is running chop shops for aborted babies, selling their organs and other tissues for a profit, to medical institutions that have yet to produce a single medical breakthrough with these human parts. The mainstream media, with the exception of Fox News, Drudge, the Washington Examiner, and a few others, are mainly silent on the issue. Lefties everywhere, including the press secretary for President Obama, blow the news off as unimportant. Outside of a large minority of Christians and conservatives, there is limited outrage.
Anybody miss the point? I actually have sympathy for those on the left, liberal women, and others who think this is no big deal. Someday they will stand before God and realize that they have been sorely used by the Prince of Darkness. More than 50 million dead babies, and now we know there really IS an abortion-industrial complex.
God forgive us, please! Pray for America, my brothers and sisters!
