Today marks the 239th birthday of the United States Marine Corps.


From Tripoli to the Meuse Argonne to Guadalcanal to the Chosin Reservoir to Hue City to Fallujah – Marines have consistently answered the nation’s call to defeat our enemies and defend our citizens.

As America and the world watch the Global Islamic Movement rolling across Africa, and nations like Syria, Libya, Iraq, and elsewhere, the greater threat is here at home.  As UTT has detailed continuously, the Muslim Brotherhood’s jihadi network in America consists of the most prominent Islamic organizations whose leaders continue to advise the White House, the National Security Staffs, FBI, CIA, DHS, the Pentagon, media organizations, university leaders, local school boards, and religious organizations of every flavor.

On this day, as Marines stationed across the globe celebrate the founding of the Corps by an act of the Continental Congress in 1775, this call goes out to all who wear the title of “U.S. Marine” that you are needed today – you are needed in this fight.

Our nation is not only under assault from those who seek to erode our founding principles, but also from the Islamic Movement which seeks to destroy us from within – “Civilization Jihad” is what the enemy calls it.

Every Marine – and every veteran for that matter – from PFC to General Officer needs to be engaged in their community at all levels to eradicate this cancer from our society.

When your local elementary school decides to host an imam to teach the children about Islam but won’t allow an open discussion about the historical Jesus of Nazareth, Marines should be at the school in force.

When the University in your area decides not to allow certain speakers on campus because the Muslims are “offended,” Marines should overwhelm the University President to ensure he or she understands this nonsense will not be tolerated.

When local politicians, like the newly re-elected Hamas supporter from the 11th District of Virginia Gerry Connolly, openly support Hamas groups and jihadi organizations like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), he should not be able to turn around without a Marine in his face.

The first war this nation fought after the revolution was against the Barbary States – Muslim Jihadis.

We are at war with this foe again today across the globe, yet our Government refuses to see what John Adams and Thomas Jefferson knew to be true, as they reported to the Congress in 1786 quoting the emissary of the Islamic potentates of Tripoli to Britain:  “The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their prophet, that it was written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

As this enemy tries to force themselves into our communities and tell us what we can and cannot do and say, we should make clear that we do not negotiate, appease, or converse with such enemies. We destroy them.

Send in the Marines.

  1. I think most Marines are in the fight. And most, following the core values of honor and courage, sign their names to their opinions. I will link to this from my Old Jarhead blog. (
