Navy SEAL Hero Gets Medal of Honor

Michelle Malkin is linked up to the news that Lt. Michael P. Murphy was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor (MOH).

Lt. Murphy was killed in a firefight with Taliban fighters in 2005.

Black5 has Lt. Murphy's complete background. Lone Survivor is the book written about Lt. Murphy and his comrades who were fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan. Interestingly, the author says that while their team waited to ambush a local Taliban leader, a local goat herder discovered their position. The team decided to spare the herder's life and, subsequently, the SEAL team soon found themselves surrounded by 80 heavily-armed Taliban members. Just proves the adage that no good deed goes unpunished.

Rue St. Michel enthusiastically recommends this book.

God bless you, Lieutenant. May God commend your spirit to the highest echelons of Heaven.

They have really made these medals cheaply won nowadays. Like when they gave that "hillbilly tramp" Jessica Lynch the silver star.

They should not give out medals to soldiers fighting losing battles. You know, you lost, why give you a medal? Like Vietnam, they shouldn't have gave any of those vets a medal, they LOST!

The military is for those guys who can't get a job.

Men like Lt. Murphy are out there in the desert, going without food and water and trying to keep from getting shot.

All that and more so that YOU can enjoy your first amendment rights.

Because, douche-bag, our military really is out there protecting Liberty and Freedom. Don't let the freaked out hippies who run the media tell you anything different.

For every Taliban/Muslim fascist we kill, probably saves 50 of our own people.

Our military has NO business in others peoples countries. They are just invaders plain and simple. Guard our own borders.

Save us from Taliban???? Let the mud people run around in their mountains. They are over there not here. Watch our borders. Forget ground troops, carpet bomb instead. Leave enemy territory a burning wasteland. Oh, and stop fixing them after their destruction.
