Veteran Ray Starmann Writes An Open Letter to Mr. Khizr Khan
Clear, rational truths from the article "An Open Letter to Mr. Khizr Khan" at usdefensewatch.com, written by a Veteran who first offered his sincere condolences to this Gold Star family who falsely criticized Mr Donald Trump in a speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention:
"As a former US Army officer, and a veteran of the Gulf War, I can certainly understand the pain and anguish that you and your wife endure every day.
"Your son died saving the lives of his fellow soldiers. As John wrote, Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
"Captain Khan is a hero. I am sure the soldiers he served with regard him as one. I know you and your wife do. Rest assured that millions of veterans regard your son as a hero as well."
Starmann clarifies Mr Trump's reasonable ideas, and the Constitutional requirement to limit immigration in ways that defend the Nation:
"Mr. Trump’s plan to temporarily halt immigration from Muslim countries that are known to either support terrorism or harbor terrorist groups is not only pragmatic, but indeed it is constitutional. It is the constitutional duty of the President of the United States to protect this nation."
Starmann continues with the hard truth:
"Whether you, your wife, the Muslim world and millions of Democrats are offended by Mr. Trump’s realistic view of the world is irrelevant. .....
"Whether you, your wife and son would have been prohibited from emigrating from Pakistan to America under Mr. Trump’s wartime plan is irrelevant. The security of this great land supersedes your desires and the desires of others who wish to come here now. The United States of America has no obligation to open its doors in order to placate foreigners and liberals in our government.
"To adopt any other course but Mr. Trump’s would be a cause for further endangering the lives of Americans every day. That, sir, is unacceptable.
"You attacked Mr. Trump in front of a worldwide audience, yet you can’t understand the fact that he defends himself against attacks from you, Hillary Clinton and the left. What else is one to do sir?
"We must live in a world of reality, not a world of denial, delusion and fantasy the Democrats inhabit every waking day of their lives."
