This letter is for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, ''Islamic Response,'' and

the rest of the so-called "insurgents" in Iraq.

To the terrorists currently operating in Iraq:

I see that you have captured a U. S. Marine, and that you plan to

cut off his head if your demands are not met. Big mistake. Before

you carry out your threat I suggest you read up on Marine Corps

history. The Japanese tried the same thing on Makin Island and in a

few other places during World War Two, and came to regret it. Go

ahead and read about what then happened to the mighty Imperial Army

on Tarawa, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. They paid full price for what they

did, and you will too.

You look at America and you see a soft target, and to a large

extent you are right. Our country is filled with a lot of spoiled

people who drive BMWs, sip decaf lattes and watch ridiculous reality

TV shows. They are for the most part decent, hard working citizens,

but they are soft. When you cut off Nick Berg's head those people

gasped, and you got the media coverage you sought, and then those

people went back to their lives. This time it is different. We also

have a warrior culture in this country, and they are called Marines.

It is a brotherhood forged in the fire of many wars, and the bond

between us is stronger than blood. While it is true that this

country has produced nitwits like Michael Moore, Howard Dean and Jane

Fonda who can be easily manipulated by your gruesome tactics, we have

also produced men like Jason Dunham, Brian Chontosh and Joseph

Perez. If you don't recognize those names you should. They are all

Marines who distinguished themselves fighting to liberate Iraq, and

there will be many more just like them coming for you.

Before the current politically correct climate enveloped our

culture one of the recruiting slogans of our band of brothers

was "The Marine Corps Builds Men." You will soon find out just how

true that is. You, on the other hand, are nothing but a bunch of

women. If you were men you would show your faces, and take us on in a

fair fight. Instead, you are cowards who hide behind masks and

decapitate helpless victims. If you truly represented the interest

of the Iraqi people you would not be ambushing those who come to your

country to repair your power plants, or sabotage the oil pipelines

which fuel the Iraqi economy. Your agenda is hate, plain and simple.

When you raise that sword over your head I want you to remember

one thing. Corporal Wassef Ali Hassoun is not alone as he kneels

before you. Every Marine who has ever worn the uniform is there with

him, and when you strike him you are striking all of us. If you

think the Marines were tough on you when they were cleaning out

Fallujah a few weeks ago you haven't seen anything yet. If you want

to know what it feels like to have the Wrath of God called down upon

you then go ahead and do it. We are not Turkish truck drivers, or

Pakistani laborers, or independent contractors hoping to find work in

your country. We are the United States Marines, and we will be

coming for you.
