A note on some of the graphics on this site
Posted by Daniel Sauerwein on February 3, 2008
In the two years that I have been running this site in its various forms, I have never had a problem over what I place on this site, but feel that I must explain my reasoning for some of the images on this site. The images on the right below my personal disclaimer dealing with the number of terrorist attacks, support for Israel, and being pro-victory are my little personal touch. The first one linking to the The Religion of Peace website is there because my nation is at war with radical Islam (note I said radical Islam, not Islam). I do not personally believe that all Muslims are terrorists and do not necessarily endorse all aspects of the website, but I have it up to serve as a warning about radical Islamic terrorism. The second graphic deals with my support for Israel, which is just my personal belief. The final graphic is my expression for support of my country in the War on Terror and my desire to see America be victorious. In the two years that I have run this blog and had those graphics up, I have only had one person complain about it and disregard my explanation.
Therefore, I would like to state that unless I choose to remove the graphics myself, which would only be if I decide or if close friends think I should remove them, the graphics will remain. I do not let people dictate how my site will look, especially with tones of anger and hostility. I have stated time and again and will do so now that this site is open to all views about military history and I am fairly lenient with comments, unless they are spam or irrational, which are usually easy to spot. I welcome everyone and ask that you judge my site not on my personal little design elements, but on the content of the pages and posts.
