Editor’s Prologue

January 25, 2015 — Philippines National Police Special Actions Force commanders enter the jungle to “Arrest” a suspected Islamic terrorist.  The PNP’s SAF commandos end up engaged in a firefight with “The Enemy.”

January 30, 2015 is declared “The National Day Of Mourning” to honor the memories of the brave men who engaged and fought the criminals and terrorists in the jungle.

I am a retired United States Air Force photojournalist and editor.  I am a pro-military writer.

Christy, my wife, is a Filipina.  My children, Samuel Ranilo Warren and Donna Junea Warren are Filipino-Americans.  My father, Samuel E. Warren served in The United States Army Signal Corps in the Philippines in World War II.  I was assigned to and served at Clark Air Base in the Republic Of The Philippines in the 1980s.

Needless to say, whenever anything happens in The United States or The Republic Of The Philippines, I and my family feel “Connected.”

I have been fortunate to meet and work with members of the Armed Forces Of The Philippines and The Philippines National Police.

I can understand and related to the grief of the families who lost loved ones in the combat in the jungle.

As a writer, I felt the best way I could express my condolences to the family members was to author a short story to celebrate the devotion, duty and dedication of the Philippines National Police Special Actions Force commandos.

Trumpets Of The Universe sound.  Planets in space reverberate. 

Comets and asteroids brighten for an instant and shimmer as the celestial symphony of sound passes them.

The solar bodies of stars glow with renewed radiation, which causes them to shine light Gold, Ruby and Lapis against The Eternal Charcoal Of The Universe.

For an instant, The Celestial Trumpets Sound and The Universe is a Crystal Of Courage And Compassion, which spreads throughout the infinite canvas of Eternal Night. 

Not a single scientific instrument on Earth or adrift in the Infinite Celestial Sea will record the miraculous music.

The Archangels and Angels, in their dress uniforms, stand in their positions, on both sides of The Red Carpet Corridor.

The Souls arrive at the end of the carpet and begin their measured step down the great corridor.

At the end of the red carpet is The Mystical Presence Of The Stranger.

The 44 Souls stroll the carpet past the formation of archangels and angels, who stand in Admiration and Respect.

The 44 Souls stop at about six feet away from The Mystical Presence Of The Stranger, which has the energy form of a human, but not the definition of flesh and form.

Before their eyes, the 44 watch The Transition.  The Stranger’s energy takes on a human form in a military dress uniform.

“Welcome To Valhalla !”

The words are spoken and emerge as English, Tagalog, Cebuano, and Waray.

The stranger smiles and nods.  “Call me, what you will, ‘ God’, ‘Mars’, ‘Ares’, ‘Thor’, I am your host for this ‘Welcome Reception.”

“You, Gentlemen, are ‘The Fallen 44 of the Philippines National Police Special Action Force’ we are assembled here, this evening. to salute, honor, witness and testify to your courage in battle.”

“You all perished in combat.  None of you made the conscious choice ‘To Die.’  All of you fought diligently and courageously to protect yourselves, your comrades-in-arms and to achieve your Mission.  No one in The Universe can question your courage and dedication.  You died in service to your country, your families and your fellow citizens.  There is No Greater Selfless Sacrifice In The Universe.”

“Tonight, this feast is to ‘Welcome You To Our Immortal Ranks.’  Tomorrow, you will witness from your positions here in Valhalla, ‘The National Day Of Mourning’ in the Republic Of The Philippines.  It will be a challenge for you.” 

“As Souls, you have your celestial bodies.  You retain the memories of Love for your families on Earth.  Grief, is difficult for humans to understand and express.  It will be difficult for you to watch your families grieve and it will be hard for you to accept and acknowledge the intense emotions.”

“Here, I have designed a way that you can welcome and accept the true emotions without you experiencing overwhelming grief for the families you have left behind.  Yes, your loved ones remain on Earth.”

“They are angry.  They are upset.  They are broken.  They are confused.  In time, they will understand your devotion and dedication to duty demonstrated your undying Love for them.  You sought to protect their Lives and an infinite number of lives around the globe by the successful execution of your Mission.  There was a definite valid reason for your sacrifice.”

“You, Gentlemen, are representative of what humankind was intended to be.  Caring, humane, selfless individuals who lived your lives in appreciation of each sunrise and helped other people on your journey through Life.”

“I salute you.  We salute you.  The Archangels and Angels Of The Universe salute you.  Gentlemen,  I welcome you to our ranks.”

“You, now, stand enshrined in eternity as “Heroes.” 

You out rank every prophet, saint, pope, ecumenical patriarch, archbishop, grand mufti, rabbi, ayatollah, imam, cleric, priest, preacher, or evangelist who has every lived, who lives or who will ever Live.”

“This is Warrior Heaven.  This is Warrior Paradise.  You ended your lives on Earth trying to protect and save the lives of others, there is No Greater Love.  You perished in a thought for your comrades-in-arms, your families, your country and your world.  No God, No Goddess, No Entity In All Of Creation could ‘Ask’ more of any mortal in The Universe.” 

“I Welcome You To Valhalla !”

God salutes the assembled 44, who stand at attention proud, but, slightly uncomfortable at the celestial pomp and circumstance.

The Archangels and Angels salute.

God smiles and nods.  “Gentelmen, the Valkyries, Amazons and Archangels stand ready to help you settle into your quarters at the conclusion of our formal dinner this evening.  Saint Michael and Saint Samuel will show you gentlemen to your seats at the head table.”

God winks.  “Tomorrow, will be a challenge for you, gentlemen.  Tonight, you dine and rest to witness tomorrow’s activities on Earth.

God smiles and gestures to The Official Reception Line.  “Gentlemen, this concludes my official welcome speech.  Here in the reception line are The Ancestral Comrades-In-Arms who are anxious to congratulate on your acceptance into our ranks at Valhalla.”

“I believe, many of you, gentlemen are familiar with the combat records and historic valor of your hosts this evening.  Allow me to introduce General Emilio Aquinaldo and General Paulino Santos of the Republic Of The Philippines and General Douglas MacArthur and General Mark Clark of the United States Of America.”

God smiles and steps back to allow the 44 Souls in their dress uniforms proceed to the reception line.

God proceeds to His Throne at The Command Table and raises his glass to the assembled heroes, “Gentlemen, I salute, ‘The Fallen 44’ !”  God renders a salute.

God raises his glass at the table and looks at all of the honored souls in uniform and into their eyes : “I welcome you into my presence.”

“I welcome you into Valhalla.  I hereby confirm your immortal rank, honor and glory and welcome you, as the risen ‘Faithful 44 ! ’”

Editor’s Epilogue

by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

I am not a religious man.

I do believe it is logical that there is an intelligence in The Universe beyond the understanding and comprehension of humans.

Thus, I tend to believe in “A Spiritual Intelligence” in The Universe.

In my mind and heart, I believe, “Heroes”, especially “Military Heroes” are always honored for their selfless dedication to their country and their fellow citizens.

I choose to believe “The Fallen 44“ have an immortal place of honor in the ranks of all the military warriors who have always served their nations and fellow citizens.

I salute “The Fallen 44“ as “The Faithful 44“

Samuel E. Warren Jr.

Target The Terrorist ! Editorial International Anti-Terrorist Day

Anti-Terrorist

Day

Flag_of_the_United_Nations.svgEvery man and woman on planet earth should be free of the fear of terrorism.

Terrorists are the Cancer Of Humanity.

 

Scientists and medical researchers search for a cure to the various forms of Cancer.

 

Courage Is The Terrorist Cancer Cure

 

Every man, woman and child on planet earth has the cure for the Cancer Of Terrorists – Courage.

 

Courage like air is hard to see, taste, smell or test for. But, like air, courage I everywhere. The key with using Courage to cure terrorism is to be willing to be creative in the careful application of the solution. You can use your courage to battle terrorist.

 

The resistance fighters of World War II devised ways to humbly and covertly overcome the Nazis. Your greatest weapon is your mind. Use your common sense to triumph over the bullies and thugs, who grow up to be terrorists.

 

Every child should be able to use his or her ingenuity to triumph over the school bully.

 

Thus, every man and woman should be able to think of a way to expose a terrorist to the proper authority.

 

Acknowledged National Interests

 

Every nation in the world has an agenda and interests to pursue; the terrorist is always a threat to citizens and the nation that can be dealt with effectively and efficiently.

International Anti-Terrorist Day

 

October 9 should become the International Anti-Terrorism Day. On October 9, 2012, two armed terrorists gun men stopped a school bus and shot three schoolgirls at point blank range. The Taliban terrorists’ group admits to meeting to decide to issue the “Kill Order” on a 14-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl.

 

The terrorists gun men squeezed the trigger, but, other terrorists groups and individuals had supplied them with the weapons, training and money to carry out the heinous act to assassinate a child.

 

I would suggest all nations observe October 9 as International Anti-Terrorist Day. Naturally, all nations will have their own priorities, thus, they may decide to choose another date and observe that day as a National Anti-Terrorist Day or promote it as their nation’s date to observe International Anti-Terrorist Day.

 

Real Victims, Real Symbols Of Terrorists

 

Malala Yousafzai and her wounded girlfriends are now immortal symbols that cowardly thugs and bullies are an infectious blight on the soul of humanity. Legions of unknown and unnamed children have been misused and abused since time began, but, responsible people always try to protect the children that they might have a future.

Everyone Is A Terrorist Target

 

When the terrorists squeezed the trigger, they acknowledged that two-thirds of the human population were simply their targets. No woman and no child is no longer safe from the psychotic, sadistic lust for murder in the heart of a terrorist. When the terrorists fired at the frightened children they acknowledged, that now that children and women were legitimate targets of assassination, essentially every man, woman and child is a terrorist target. No one is safe.

 

United Nations Resolution

 

All nations can agree that terrorism is a threat. All nations can agree to protect their own domestic and foreign sovereignty to overcome a persistent threat of global terrorism. All nations should be able to agree to sign a short United Nations Resolution that identifies them as a nation that will never rest until the terrorists lie down their weapons or learn to live in virtual isolation afraid of human contact.

 

463px-Emblem_of_the_United_Nations.svg

 

Global Terrorism Definition Change Suggestion

 

Every nation and government on the planet can agree terrorist are a threat. Every nation and government on the planet can agree they need to take action to stop and decrease that threat. How the nations and governments of the world take that action should always be their sovereign right.

 

I would humbly suggest the nations consider looking at their legal codes. Legal systems are designed to punish criminals and protect citizens. A terrorist is a creature that should not be considered human. Humans have rights.

 

Terrorists throughout history have demonstrated they are some being that respects only death, destruction and a continuing state of chaos. The legal change to the letter of the law to identify a terrorists as something as other than human would allow governments more flexibility in the persecution and prosecution of terrorists.

 

Of course, legal scholars will help to prevent dissidents and opposition political party candidates as being classified as terrorists/

 

The global legal systems of planet earth should review their laws on terrorism.

 

 

Terrorists Legal Precedent Change Suggestion

 

I would recommend the following statement as a starting point:

 

A terrorists is anyone, who uses a bomb, in a time of peace, to destroy people or property.

 

A bomb is a device intended only to create death, destruction and create a sense of terror and fear. A bomb is a device that will always kill, maim or injure more people that it was intended due to the scientific and physical laws that explain the blast, concussion, fragmentation and fallout from the initial explosion. In peacetime, a bomb should always be considered the primary weapon of the terrorist.

 

 

Individual Citizen’s Responsibility

 

We all live on planet earth. We have the right to feel a certain sense of peace in our person and in our homes.

 

Governments can only do so much to protect you from bullies, thugs and terrorists. Each person to be at peace in their own mind and needs to find a way to triumph over the bully, thug and terrorist.

 

 

 

World Wonder Warriors

 

FEED ICON BUTTONEvery man, woman and child on planet earth who has access to a cell phone or a laptop can text, email or forward a copy of this article or lines of text to their friends, family members, elected officials and colleagues.

 

October 9 is my suggested date for the International Anti-Terrorist Day.

 

The important thing is to get people pro-active to resist the bullies and thugs of life than grow into terrorists.

 

Every person on planet earth should feel honored to be alive.

Microsoft Word - web 2.0 logos.doc

 

No one should ever make you feel terror or fear at getting out of bed in the morning.

 

imagesWe may all seem meek and mild-mannered, but, we all have the right to feel as though we should be able to rip open our shirts and be the heroes and heroines that stand up to the Terrorists Of The World.

 

We owe it to ourselves and our families to be World Wonder Warriors. The true War On Terror needs to start with every man, woman and child on planet earth, who are tired of being bullied and the victim of thugs, who feed off their fear and terror.

 

Time to text on the cell phones. index

 

Time to email on the laptops.

 

Time to stand up to The Terrorists Of The World and let them know The World Wonder Warriors will find a way to deliver the terrorists to Justice.

The Little Things

 

Sometimes the most innocent of acts can reveal a terrorist to the authorities or the terrorist to his or her enemies. Decide in the privacy of your own mind what act you believe will reveal the terrorist and then be careful when you decide to act.

 

Likewise, we should not have to fear the bullies and thugs that grow up to be terrorist. Children should feel safe to tell a teacher, administrator or adult if another child is trying to bully or hurt him or her. Stop the bullies in grade school and high school and there will be fewer people to recruit into terrorists.

 

Individual citizens should find a covert way to report a suspected terrorist to the proper authorities.

 

Terrorists Threat Truly Global

 

Terrorists are a real threat to every citizen on the planet.

 

In business, sometimes, people may not be aware that their goods, products, services or money is going to support a terrorist or terrorist group.

 

If you suspect someone you have dealt with is a terrorist, then, remember: Malala and her girlfriends, who got shot on the school bus, could of just as easily have been your daughter,

 

Terrorists Are Traitors And Cowards

 

Terrorists are friends to no one. Terrorists stand ready to “betray” their own friends. The Taliban offered to turn Osama bin Laden, the terrorists ‘Al Qaeda leader, over to his enemies.

 

One news report revealed that when Osama bin Laden was cornered he grabbed one of his four wives in an attempt to use her as a “human shield.”

Osama bin Laden had the bravado to pose aiming an AK-7 in a photo and, yet, in a close quarters situation the best reaction that he could come up with was to “hide behind his wife’s skirt ?”

 

In Texas, using your wife to stop a bullet is the act of a coward.

 

In Missouri, using your wife to stop a bullet is the act of a coward.

 

Most places in the world, using your wife to stop a bullet is the act of a coward.

 

Terrorists Are “Phony Phreedom Phighters”

 

A terrorist is a friend to no one.

 

A terrorist is not a freedom fighter. A terrorist is not a resistance movement leader. Freedom fighters and resistance movement operatives have objectives that can be achieved to end a war. A terrorist wants chaos and a constant state of war to thrive to keep people in fear and terror.

 

A terrorist is a parasite that feeds off human fear and terror to find any excitement or meaning in his or her life.

 

A terrorist is a killing machine that respects no one and nothing.

 

A terrorist live to create terror and promote a climate of fear that will have people afraid to sleep at night and walk down the street in sunlight.

 

Ban Bullies, Thwart Thugs, Trample Terrorists

 

No one in the world should ever feel bullied by another person. No one in the world should ever feel the victim of a thug. Everyone should be able to find a molecule of courage to reveal a terrorist to the authorities or to an enemy of a terrorist.

 

Diligence and perseverance through the years and generations will turn the mass multitude of bullies and thugs in army surplus uniforms from units of trained killers into the recognized cold-blooded killers in costumes that they are. Once the propaganda is stripped away, then, the terrorist can be seen as the “kill crazy” creature he or she really is.

 

 

Know Your Enemy

 

Terrorist organizations are the enemies of people, who simply want to live and enjoy their lives and families. Always keep an eye open for information on terrorists organizations. You may not want to bury yourself in a mountain of research everyday, but when you have the time talk to friends, listen to the news, use your mind and decide what to watch out for.

 

Since I enjoy helping trying to make my readers’ lives more interesting, informative and entertaining, I offer you the links to information on Global Terrorists Organizations Of The World. Those links are at the end or the article, which I call my “Rat Finks File.”

 

In the 1960s, people who pretended to be friends and then would “rat out” their friends were called, “Rat Finks.” I can’t imagine bigger Global Rat Finks than terrorists, thus, check out the links of “The Rat Finks File.”

 

 

 

Celebrate Global Humanity October 9, 2013

 

October 9, 2013 – Citizens Of The World should either be dancing in the streets of their nation’s capitols or enjoying local public celebrations to point out how many terrorists are now in jail, facing prosecution or (some places in the world) “sleeping with the fishes.”

 

International Anti-Terrorist Day Slogan Suggestion

 

Eventually, countries, will have their own national and local slogans to combat terrorists. The world is full of creative and imaginative people, who love to stand up to bullies, thugs and terrorists.

 

Until then, if your International Anti-Terrorist Day needs a slogan, feel free to use this Samuel E. Warren Jr., original slogan:

 

No home, hut or out house on planet earth will ever be safe for a terrorist.”

–Samuel E. Warren Jr.

 

Think of how pretty that slogan will look in needlepoint next to the “Home Sweet Home” you hang above the fireplace mantel.

Air Force News Still Heavy 20 Years Later

with 2 comments

Air Force News Still Heavy After 20 Years - Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr. My wife, Christy, wanted me to move a trunk. I asked myself, "Self, what is it about women and trunks full of quilts ? Do they have a primal fear of Global Freezing or an approaching Ica Age ? My grandmother in east Texas had a trunk full of quilts that she had stitched with a needle and thread. My mother had a trunk full of quilts that she had bought through the years. Now, it seems, my wife has a trunk full of quilts." I got my dolly to move the trunk. I never knew quilts could weigh so much. I stopped and opened the lid. "Holy Pandora's Box !" The trunk was full of my old Air Force newspapers and memoriabilia from the Strategic Air Command Bombing and Navigation Competion of 1982, which translated basically into bumper stickers from many states, plus my gray reporter's steno pads of notes. The rest of the afternoon passed fairly quickly as I opened the pages of the Observer of Barksdale Air Force Base Louisiana, Philippine Flyer of Clark Air Base Republic of the Philippines, and nodded at some copies of the Tropic Topics of Andersen Air Force Base Guam and the Blythe Spirit of Blytheville Air Force Base Arkansas. I was amazed that just by glancing at a headline I could remember the situations that arose in trying to arrange interviews to write the stories, I grinned at the DWI story on page one of a newspaper because I had escorted the photographer to the main gate to talk to one of the security policemen on duty and see how we could get a photo to go with the story. The photographer and the SP had an idea, Suddenly, I'm leaning against a car and looking away from the camera to provide the photo line art for the story. Ah. the things you do for your country. Smile. In the stacks of newspapers, there were also stories that I hoped would be read and remembered like the Death March survivor story. As I closed the trunk lid, I wondered if the Air Force Public Affairs men and women on active duty today still get to "beat feet to the street" to write the stories and take the photographs or if the process is all just text messaging, cell phone photography and electronic publishing to have something to post to the websites?
