"Lots of talk about snipers this weekend (the holiday weekend of a great man, killed by a sniper), so I thought I'd weigh in with what I was raised to believe about snipers," Moore wrote in his post. "My dad was in the First Marine Division in the South Pacific in World War II. His brother, my uncle, Lawrence Moore, was an Army paratrooper and was killed by a Japanese sniper 70 years ago next month."Uh-huh. And that part about how the Iraqis shooting Americans from rooftops were to be praised for resisting "invaders"?
He explained that his views were passed down to him by his father.
"My dad always said, 'Snipers are cowards. They don't believe in a fair fight. Like someone coming up from behind you and coldcocking you. Just isn't right. It's cowardly to shoot a person in the back. Only a coward will shoot someone who can't shoot back.' "
"I don't think most Americans think of snipers as heroes," he added.
You picked your side. Your father and uncle, were they here today, would kick your ass through your teeth.
