The Play-Doh Offensive: Hitting Al Qaeda Where It Hurts

Substitute here.

If you've sat there in your easy chair wondering how you could hit Al Qaeda and the Taliban in the mouth for the endless grief and destruction they have caused this world, I'm going to give you the address. Ready?

Attn: Teresa Nealley
CoC 163 LTF
Camp Phoenix

But first, you have to make a bit of a detour. If you want to wipe the smirk off of Bin Laden's face, and make the Taliban cringe, you have to drive first to your neighborhood Target, Wal-Mart, or similar store and load up on a few "war supplies".

Try these:
Box of pencils
Box of erasers
Box of crayons
A stack of printer paper
Pencil sharpeners

Buy these, and similar items, or even just some baby or toddler clothes, and send them to the U.S. Navy's very own "Girl In Afghanistan", Teresa Nealley, at the address provided above. From her prime spot in Camp Phoenix on the outskirts of Afghanistan's capital, Kabul, she'll know how to get them to exactly the right places. Plan on spending around $35, including postage and shipping materials, when all is said and done if you go by the list above.

This will take you no more than 1 hour, I promise.

Originally documented in a BwD post in mid-October, Teresa is now into her sixth month of a fifteen month deployment. It's been hard on her, but she's determined -- despite the hardships arrayed against her -- to help the poorest of the poor in one of the most hardscrabble countries on Earth. She has asked The Substitute and his friends to help her in the cause.

You can do no more to fight the evils of terrorism and the twisted version of the Muslim religion that The Taliban & Co. have ruthlessly wielded than to stick a pencil or crayons, piece of paper, and the gift of imagination into the hands of an Afghani child. Pencils and paper, education and compassion, are primary tools of freedom's inevitable victory over tyrrany.

This is your chance to make the most direct impact on the War on Terror that is possible. Consider it your own version of a World War II Victory Garden or Pot & Pan Drive. It is your chance to drive a wedge between Al Qaeda's operatives and an Afghani people that have known nothing but war and misery for what is now beyond 30 years.

Kill them with kindness. Show them the compassion and concern that America has historically been renowned for. By the time the post office clerk gets done putting on the postage on your box, you'll feel better than you have since before 9/11/01.

May I request that you purchase any items from a store other than Walmart. Those are the people who are suing a brain-damaged woman to get back insurance money they paid to her after a traffic accident. The truck firm that caused the accident has settled with her - and so Walmart wants the money they paid - back. And if they get it, this woman, who will never be able to live on her own, will be penniless.

Help the children of Afghanistan by all means. But please don't help Walmart while you're doing it!

Personally, I went to Target to purchase the supplies for the two packages I have sent to Teresa thus far. And I'm sure Target has its fair share of lawsuits against it, as does any business.

The point is: Get to the store, any store, get some school supplies, and get it in the mail to Afghanistan to help a U.S. sailor with a very worthy cause.

Mongo, Ditto.

Just out of curiousity, if the truck company settled with the woman, wouldn't that mean she has some sort of money?

I must have been asleep at the switch, because I did not see this one before. I'll send it out as a WOG next week.

Kelly the little black dog said...

So how do you ship the packages? Does the US mail deliver there?

Kelly The Dog,

If you want to send a package to Teresa, here is her Afghanistan address:

Attn: Teresa Nealley
Operation Outreach
CoC 163 LTF
Camp Phoenix

She will appreciate whatever you can get to her: toys, baby clothes, school supplies.

Many Thanks!

- Mongo

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but
I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where
to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?

With thanks
