Molon Labe

In Greek it is spelled Mu-Omnicron-Lambda-Omega-Nu  Lambda-Alpha-Beta-Epsilon.  The phrase does not easily translate into English; more along the lines of “you can have them, when we’re done with them”.  In English, the sentiment being imparted, “from my cold, dead hands” is a close approximation.  “MOLON LABE” is the motto of the Greek Special Forces as a tribute to the Battle of Thermopylae.  Most Americans agree completely with the sentiment – as long as I am armed, I cannot be enslaved against my will.  Self defense is not only a God-given right; it is the responsibility of a Free Citizen.    R. Walker, in a letter to a friend, 2008
