Well, after letting other people deliver my messages
to the enemy,
I finally got off my dead ass and decided to get personal about it.
So I got a job over there for 3 years. Although they wouldn't let me pull the trigger, I was pretty close to the action for a few years.
Here's some of the messages I personally marked up and loaded on the delivery vehicle.
Well, the women even got to send some messages!

Ted A. Morris, Jr., Major, US Air Force, Retired
Earl J. Morris, Jr., Chief Master Sergeant, US Air Force, Retired

Just in case you STILL don't know where I'm coming from, I offer the following:
Thoughts from September 11, 2001
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman . . . Let it be told to the future world, that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive, that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet and repulse it.
- Tom Paine, Philadelphia, 1777
O thus be it ever when free-men shall stand
Between their lov'd home and the war's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust!"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
- Francis Scott Key, Baltimore, September 14, 1814
The United States is like a gigantic boiler. Once the fire is lit under it, there is no limit to the power it can generate.
- Winston Churchill, London, December 8, 1941
Find out who they are.
Kill them all.
Kill their wives.
Kill their children.
Kill their parents.
Kill their friends.
Kill their neighbors.
Kill their animals.
Salt the earth where they lived.
Mount their heads on pikes on the steps of the Capitol.
- Ted Morris, Jr., Las Cruces, September 12, 2001
a little less elegant, but no less heartfelt...
The wonderful, mythical internet Provisional Peoples' Democratic Republic of Diego Garcia joins the United States and our Allies everywhere in condeming the attacks of September 11, 2001.
We, well, o.k., I, believe it is time for the people of the US and the world to come together
and destroy intolerance wherever it resides, or hides.
I don't care if you are black, brown, white, yellow, or red, young or old, man or woman, gay or straight, religious or not, where you came from, what you look like, or what language you speak, its time to make a stand against the bad guys.
When this is over, we will have learned that the petty differences we use to set us apart one from the other are meaningless, and we will share in the satisfaction of a just, and terrible revenge.
If you aren't with us, you're against us, and sooner or later, we're coming for you too.
I don't care if you're neo-nazis in the forests of Idaho, nuvo-commies in Seattle, IRA fund-raisers in Boston, or Saudi billionaires hiding in some Afgani cave, your time is up. September 13, 2001
You can add the commies in Occupy and AntiFA now too.
"When it comes to just about any story relating to the good character of the US,
it amounts to the same thing: For those who believe, no explanation is necessary,
for those who don't, no explanation will suffice." D Morriss, The Hague
