Catholic college professor apologize for blast at AFA cadet
By John Diedrich - The gazette
Air Force Academy freshman Robert Kurpiel sent an email to colleges around the country Oct. 31, asking for help to promote an academic forum at the academy. The Academy Assembly brings together students at the academy each year, seeking to spark debate about current topics.
But it is a professor's response to Kurpiel's e-mail, which asked for help advertising the forum, that spurred a debate.
Peter Kirstein, a history professor at St. Xavier University in Chicago, fired back a message that said U.S. military members were in part to blame for the Sept. 11 attacks and said Kurpiel was worse than the snipers who terrorized the Washington, D.C., area.
"I am furious you would even think I would support you and your aggressive baby killing tactics of collateral damage," Kirstein wrote in an email that has circulated widely.
I find it very interesting that his email, college web page and other college addresses needed to be corrected!Navy SEAL teaches the Instructor!
Sorry, apology NOT accepted!

||Response from professor Peter Kirstein:
|Dear Sir or Ma'am
The Air Force Academy is going to be having our annual Academy Assembly.
This is a forum for mainly but not only Political Science majors, discussing very important issues dealing with politics. Right now we are in the planning stage for advertising and we would appreciate your help in the follow areas. Do you know of or have any methods or ways for inter school advertising and or communications?
What would be the best way for us to advertise at your school whether it is sending you the fliers and you making copies or by perhaps putting an advertisement in your local publication?
We would appreciate your input and the cost of what you recommend.
Thank you for your time and consideration
Cadet: Robert Kurpiel
|You are a disgrace to this country and I am furious you would even think I would support you and your aggressive baby killing tactics of collateral damage. Help you recruit. Who, top guns to reign death and destruction upon nonwhite peoples throughout the world? Are you serious sir? Resign your commission and serve your country with honor.
No war, no air force cowards who bomb countries without AAA(1), without possibility of retaliation. You are worse than the snipers (2). You are imperialists who are turning the whole damn world against us. September 11(3) can be blamed in part for what you and your cohorts have done to the Palestinians(4), the VC(5), the Serbs, a retreating army at Basra(6).
You are unworthy of my support.

[Please take a look at my personal comments to the above!]
I have been "really” impressed with "Professor" Kirstein comments. Here is a Full Professor of American History but it appears that his history starts with the establishment of the State of Israel!
I do understand that he "teaches" at a Catholic college, but what comes across to me is a true bias against the Jewish community.
 “No war, no air force cowards who bomb countries without AAA (1), without possibility of retaliation.”
When the U.S. Air Force started the air action for Desert Storm… Didn't I see some funny red/yellow and white balls of fire popping into the air? There seemed to be a few pictures of that or were you sitting in your classroom talking! Wasn't there “JUST” a few SAM rockets being fired? DAH!
It also seems that in your dissertation you have forgotten the POW/MIA's from Vietnam! I think that they did find some AAA and SAM interactions!
 “You are worse than the snipers” (2). I don’t know how you can compare us to those two people? Enough said MORON!
 “You are imperialists who are turning the whole damn world against us. September 11(3)…”
Maybe in the eyes of the poor, oppressed, despot run counties we are better then them. Hate is produced when the “Have nots” want what the ‘Haves” possess. If you use a recent history book in your classes, take a look at the new trade agreements taking place around the world that involves the USA. I would like to see all US Foreign Aid stopped to all counties and let them stand or fall based on the whim of the indigenous peoples.
 “…September 11(3) can be blamed in part for what you and your cohorts have done to the Palestinians (4)” What?
On 14 May 1948 the State of Israel was proclaimed according to the UN partition plan (1947). Less than 24 hours later, the regular armies of Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq invaded the country, forcing Israel to defend the sovereignty it had regained in its ancestral homeland. This was not done by the USA, but by the United Nations and supervised by England. Do your homework, just like you force your poor students to do in your classes.
The above counties told the Palestinians to get out of the way so they pushed the Israelis into the sea. They tried again in 1956, 1967, and 1973. Each time they got their asses kicked! When will they learn?? Now all those who left are sitting in refuge camps wondering what to do next. Why not perform acts of terrorism?

 “Vietnam VC” (5) Here is another question for you? Have you forgotten the other part of the war? You know, up north? I will have to send your comments to all the POW’s that spent such a nice time up there.
I spent time in the south and can still see the results of the beheading and impalements of village leaders that were against the communist VC. I am proud to have served there and supported the idea of their freedom of choice. The VC and communism were/are anti-Christ, don’t you "lecture" (I don’t think of you as a teacher) at a Christian College? Interesting principles you must live by.
 “a retreating army at Basra” (6) Wow! Here was an invading army that also got their ass kicked and was retreating with tanks, armored personnel carriers PLUS private cars stolen from Kuwait loaded with loot that was stopped. Do you think it was Kuwaitis running from their own country to be with the friendly neighbors to the north?
Every day we the US public see the damage done by our "Smart Bomb", I can understand the images of the badly injured soldiers fighting for their one lives. What I would like to see on your site would be a story about the hard work the field medics, medi-vac teams working on getting the paticent to the hospital where your imaes start. If you look at these simple images you have posted you should have the heart to the doctors, nurses and hospital staff facing Compassion Fatque by working long hours, and know that when its shift time they will help some to live and hold and hand of the ones who will not make it through the day.
You may show your story and impression of the United States I just would like you to show the whole story not just a small slever of that fits your mindset.

Kirstein, Peter N. Let this person know your personal feeling on the above topic.
