Do Muslims Love Their Children?

We will have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.

~ Golda Meir

Do Muslims of the Middle East love their children?  I am often perplexed by this question as it often seems as though Muslims hate with much more vehemence than they love.  Muslims often seem to have a greater love of martyrdom than of life.  This great love of martyrdom seems to extend to their attitudes and behavior towards their children.

Arabs, or rather Muslims, regularly send their children to their deaths as suicide bombers into crowded markets of their own people.   They send their airplanes into towers in the cities of other nations.  There is much evidence that Muslims have targeted women in Iraq.  The offending parties find women who are easy victims.  They rape these women.  Another woman who is in on the scam will tell this woman that she is shamed, spoiled, worthless.  She’s been raped, she’ll never find a husband.  Never have a family.  Better that she give her life for Allah and become a martyr.  This victim then becomes victim again and is sent as a human missile into the midst of fellow Muslims to explode into so many pieces of wasted potential.  Convinced in her grief and shame that by murdering these fellow Muslims that she will find paradise waiting for her in the hereafter.

Afghan and Paki Taliban often target young children.  They give them a basket full of clothes and tell the child to deliver the basket to an Afghan National Police Check Point.  Unbeknownst to the child, within the folds of the clothing is hidden a bomb.  The package is detonated as the child is delivering the basket.  Not after the package has been delivered, but, while it is still in the hands of the child.  The Taliban blow the child into “martyrdom” and  “paradise” along with the adult Afghans at the check point.  Worse yet, they convince some of these children that the bomb will not kill them, but,  that the bomb will kill only the infidel.  These are crimes against humanity to the Nth degree.  The Palestinians have not shied away from sending children off to martyrdom’s paradise either.

Iranian children during the Iran-Iraq War were “volunteered” for service on the front lines as mine clearers.  Iranian Leaders asked the Umma, or faithful, of Shi’a Iran to send their children to the battlefields to be martyred for the Great Ayatollah Khomeini.  For certainly, they were assured of paradise as martyrs for the Great Iranian Revolution.  These children were rolled up in blankets and told to roll over the ground where the Military suspected or knew there were minefields so that the THE CHILDREN would detonate mines before the Iranian Army marched or drove their vehicles through.  No, the children did not survive the blast, but, it was ok.  They were on their way to paradise.  I don’t know what a 12 year old Child would do with his or her 72 Virgins.  These were Children!  Aged 12-13.

It’s an honest question.  It’s a simple question.  Do Muslims love their Children?  If Ayatollah Sistani tells the Muslims of Iraq to send theirr children into minefields, will “good Muslims” heed the call?  If al Sadr or Khamanei tells “good Muslims” to send their toddlers into the road with a bomb strapped to their waist and they will be martyrs and go straight to paradise, will “good Muslims” comply?

A Muslim daughter dishonors her father.  She is often murdered for this great crime.  Often the incident that brings dishonor is conjured, a lie or simply a man wishing to possess a woman.  Other times, the shame is brought on by the woman’s rejection of a male Muslim.  Is the honor of a Muslim Father so great that his daughter deserves death for bringing dishonor?  If a young Muslim woman marries a non-Muslim or is simply “too Western,” is that truly deserving of her death?  Is a Muslim woman of so little value in Islam?  Is the honor of a Muslim Man worth so much more than the life of his daughter or sister?

Is Muslim hatred for Israel, the West and/or the United States so great that it outweighs their love for their children?  Are the lives of Muslim children worth less than a Great Victory over Saddam Hussein, the Great Shaitan or some other infidel?

Do Muslims love their children?

It’s a simple question.  It should have a simple answer.

Bad Company ~ Five Finger Death Punch

This has got to be the most rockin’, bad ass re-make in Rock n Roll History.

I love it!

Love Bad Company but the heavy bass and the voice of Ivan Moody produce a sound so freakin’ heavy that the re-interpretation seems almost apocalyptic as if it FFDP are hearkening the end of the world.  Incredible sound and even better in my new Beats headphones.  I rock out to this every morning on the way to the gym for motivation.

I need more.  FFDP should re-do the whole Bad Company catalogue.  I’d pay for that.

 

Five Finger Death Punch often abbreviated 5FDP is an American heavy metal band from Los Angeles, California . Formed in 2005, the group’s name is derived from classic oriental martial arts cinema. The band originally consisted of vocalist Ivan Moody, guitarist Zoltan Bathory, guitarist Caleb Bingham, bassist Matt Snell, and drummer Jeremy Spencer. Bingham was replaced by guitarist Darrell Roberts in 2006, who was then replaced by Jason Hook in 2009. Bassist Matt Snell departed from the band in 2010 and was replaced by Chris Kael in 2011.

 

Crazy Lookin’ Bastards! 

 

 

Grandma is at God’s Celestial Shore

I’ll Fly Away
Some glad morning when this life is o’er,
I’ll fly away.

To a home on God’s celestial shore,
I’ll fly away.

I’ll fly away, O Glory, I’ll fly away.

When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye,
I’ll fly away.

When the shadows of this life have flown,
I’ll fly away.

Like a bird thrown, driven by the storm,
I’ll fly away.

I’ll fly away, O Glory, I’ll fly away.
When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye,
I’ll fly away.

Just a few more weary days and then,
I’ll fly away.

To a land where joy shall never end,
I’ll fly away.

I’ll fly away, O Glory,
I’ll fly away.

When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye,
I’ll fly away.

You’ll be missed here on this Earth, but, now you’re with the Angels.  We’ll be with you, too, one fine day.  It’s a sad moment for those of us left behind. I’ll miss you Grandma.  You were  in so much pain, though. It was better to pass on than to have continued to suffer. Now, there is no pain for you.   You can be with Aunt Lola and Les and Aunt Hope and Aunt Helen and Uncle Michael and all of the people you loved and lost in this life.  You missed them all. Now, no more. Now, it is for us to miss you. You’re free from pain at last.  Keep an eye out for us.  We’ll all need you from time to time.  It’ll be nice to know that, occasionally, you’ll be looking down on us from the Heavens.
With Love, David
You would know the secret of death.
But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?
The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.
If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.
For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.
Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king?
Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

On Death ~ Khalil Gibran

P.S.  Give a Hug to Les and Aunt Lola and everyone else for me.

Geo-Politics: Change the Dynamic ~ Offer Incentive

If I were President…

1.  We get less than 20% of our oil from the Middle East.  I’d halt this immediately.

2.  That oil shortfall would be sourced from our own reserves and Canada.  I’d even throw a bone to Venezuela in exchange for their withdrawal from OPEC.

3.  I’d close all bases in the Middle East.

4.  I’d place a base in Israel and Egypt.  Keep the base in Turkey.

5.  I’d tell Egypt and Turkey that they have choice.  Either they’re with the West or their with the Muslim world.  If they decide that they’re with the Muslim World, then we withdraw all support and all bases from those countries.

6.  I’d tell Europe and Asia that America is no longer responsible and will no longer take action in the Middle East except in the case of defense of our allies.

7.  The Allies in the Middle East would be designated as Israel because they are a Democracy as well as Egypt, Turkey and Jordan.

8.  Our alliance with Egypt, Turkey and Jordan would be predicated upon Democratic reforms and their renunciation of a foreign policy based upon Islamic Internationalism.  These countries can keep their Islamic Nationalism, if they chose to do so.  That choice would mean our pulling all resources and support from their nations.

9.  Support of Jordan and Egypt would also be predicated upon an agreement to assimilation all Palestinian refugees.  All refugee camps would have to be closed down.  Those refugees would have to be given full rights in the countries in which they are located.  The US would assist with funding for housing and job training for these refugees at 50% of the cost.  This Aid Package would be closely guided by a contractual auditor to ensure that the monies were being used to build infrastructure and not lining the pockets of corrupt officials.  If bribes are insisted upon, funding would be withdrawn.

10.  Continued support of Israel would be predicated upon a real peace plan with the Palestinians.

a.  Israel would either permanently partition the West Bank and Gaza as sovereign nations and pull out completely leaving the Palestinians to their own fate.

or

b.  Israel would annex the Palestinian areas and alter their constitution making Israel an officially and legally secular nation.  Part of that constitutional reconstruction would be safeguards for all religions, creeds, ethnicities from persecution, etc.

There would be a ten year time frame to effect these changes with specific milestones in place.  If these milestones are not met, we would pull all support for any or all of these nations.

We would offer the new Palestine Nation, if created, a package of aid in return for a turning away from Islamism.  The US would provide financial and expert support in building a nation from the ground up.  A referendum from the Palestinian people would be required to receive this Aid Package.  In essence, the Palestinian people would be required to request it via said referendum and the leaders of Hamas, Fatah as well as members of any other quasi-governmental group recognized by the people.  If the people did not vote for our assistance, the offer would be withdrawn.  This Aid Package would also be closely guided by a contractual auditor to ensure that the monies were being used to build infrastructure and not lining the pockets of corrupt officials.  If bribes are insisted upon, funding would be withdrawn.
The onus would then be on these nations.  If they decided to go along with us, they would have our support.  If not, we would withdraw from them and leave them to their collective  fates.

I would have these treaties ratified by the US Congress and the United Nations.

There would be no military solutions offered.  Either they come on line with us or we no longer have a reason to be associated with them.  End of discussion.

As for the Gulf and their oil, that would be the responsibility of whomever wishes to continue to purchase oil from those nations.  China, France, Germany…whomever it may be.

We would continue to patrol the ocean lanes for support of international trade.  The Straits of Hormuz — no longer our problem.  Saudi Arabia — keep with your Wahhabism/Salafism on your own shores or risk offending more nations.

Egypt seems to be progressing towards Democracy.  This surprised me as I thought that the Muslim Brotherhood would take them in the direction of Islamic Sharia.  This is a positive development.  Jordan would need to step away from Monarchy and join the rest of the world in Democratic reforms.

Over the short term, these initiatives would seem expensive.  Over the long term, these initiatives would save America and the Globe much in terms of blood and treasure.

This would be my solution.

In effect, we would be saying; “Join the World and we will support you.  Remain in the Dark Ages and we will abandon you.”

I want out of the business of supporting corrupt and/or stubborn regimes.  Whether that regime be Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia or Western Europe.

The next thing that I would do would be to withdraw all forces from Europe.  The only way we would keep US troops stationed in Europe would be if at least 50% of the costs were funded by the country that wished for us to be there.  All real estate used by the forces stationed in those countries would need to be loaned permanently at a cost free basis for the duration of the deployment to that country.  A Status of Forces Agreement would have to be met whereby our Servicemembers would be subject to US Law and the UCMJ only while in country.  All services for our Servicemembers would be provided without interference by the United States.  All Servicemembers would be on a Tax Free Status in that country.  That nation would also have to be a member in good standing of the Democratic Nations of the World.

If they are not willing to do this.  No problem.  We will simply not have a need to act in defense of their Nation.

I would also pull out of South Korea.  On the way out, I’d tell China that if North Korea attacks, we would bomb the North into the dark ages.  That would be my final and only dealing with North Korea.  If the people of the North are too brainwashed, too stupid or too weak to fight for change, this is not the problem of the United States of America.  Let China feed North Korea or South Korea if that be their desire.

I would pull all of our forces out of Japan.  Japan doesn’t need us there and many of the people don’t want us there.  Next, I would enter a treaty with the Philippines wherein we purchase land from them to station our Pacific Forces.   I would base a Marine Expeditionary Unit and an Army Mechanized Infantry/Stryker Division there along with a Carrier Fleet being on Station at all times.

China would be warned that Japan is still our ally.  Taiwan would be told to work out their differences with China.  If China became bellicose and threatened invasion, we would act in defense of Taiwan.  Unless the threat is based on Taiwanese provocation.  In that case, Taiwan is on their own.

I would also make an alliance of mutual support with India.  Our Armed Forces would conduct joint operations/exercises with India.  If possible, I would allow for a treaty whereby US Forces would be permanently stationed in Southern India.  This would hinge upon Indian acquiescence on the Kashmir debate.

I would withdraw all forces and support from Pakistan and Afghanistan.  If Pakistan wanted our support, they would have to oust the Saudi Wahhabis and the Deobandi.  Pakistan would also be required to sweep the FATA and NWFP of taliban influences.  They would also be required to withdraw from the Kashmir debate.  This would be the price of assistance from the US.  No debate.  No equivocation.  If they want our support, they give up their dispute with India over Kashmir and halt support of all terrorism directed towards India.

India and Kashmir would be required to allow a full vote by the Kashmiri people.  1.  Independence  2.  Annexation by Pakistan  3.  Retention by India

International Election Officials would oversee the vote.  Any monkey business by either side and no deal.  Kashmir should be able to decide it’s fate.  Their fate should not be decided by Muslim terrorists or Indian Soldiers.

We would withdraw all support from Pakistan if this is not followed through to completion.   With regards to India, we go to a neutral stance.  India has no need of our support.  They’re a viable nation in their own right.

Aside from moving away from the Defense of Europe, I would do nothing in Europe.  They’re sovereign nations that can navigate their way through the world in their own rite.  We should not be providing defense for them unless they are willing to subsidize it.

On patrolling the commercial sea lanes, I would require that other nations either subsidize fleet operations or provide support in the form of personnel and equipment.  Either that or we protect only US shipping.

It’s time for the free ride to end.  The Nations of the World (especially Europe) have enjoyed peace at the expense of the American tax payer for far too long.  They decry our every move.  It’s time for them to step up.  The World doesn’t want Team America — World Police or so they say.  Let them have their desire.

These actions would save American Tax dollars.  They would remove us from the Middle East conflicts.  They would place the onus on other nations to conduct their own defense and improve the lot of their own citizenry.

After these offers, blame for the sorry affairs of the world could no longer be placed at the feet of America.  The primary sources of conflict would have been given a viable alternative.  If they chose the path to peace, it would be with our leadership.  If they chose the path to war, it would be at their own behest.  The blame would lie with themselves.

Another thing that I think would be a positive is for an exchange program wherein a Battalion of another Nations forces would be given the opportunity to come to Fort Irwin, Texas to train with US Forces.  I’d rotate the Nation on a regular basis.  6 Month rotations.  This would be a tremendous opportunity for our Armed Forces and theirs.  I’d offer this opportunity to India, Romania, South Korea, Hungary, Egypt, Russia, Thailand, Iraq, Jordan, Israel and other Nations with whom we would engage in treaties of mutual defense or with whom we wish to improve relations.

The last item on my agenda would be reforming the UN.  That, though, is a whole other post.

That would keep us from any more of this:

Along with legislation mandating a Declaration of War in order to commit forces to a Ground Invasion of another country.  I have no problem with bombing a perpetrating country into the stone ages.  If there are viable targets.  I would also work to repeal the prohibition against assassination of World Leaders.  We could have saved a lot of money and lives by simply putting a .99$ bullet through the forehead of Saddam Hussein.  We could save a bit more by spreading about 200 USD worth of lead throughout the Iranian, Hezbollah and Syrian power structures.

3RD World ~ Immortal Technique

Warning!  Profane as Hell!

Anyone who has bought into the DNC, the GOP, Mainstream Media will be offended.  lol

I don’t know much about these guys.  They are fairly well researched in their lyrics, it would seem.  That said, it sounds like they forgot to go back to the beginning.  Much of what is happening today finds it’s roots in past centuries back to the early part of the last Millennium.  It’s very much centered in the African American experience, but, compelling from a general standpoint on American Politics and the American Media.  Some of their ideology is erroneous.  It seems as if they think that America created Israel.  We didn’t.  When Israel was created we weren’t really paying too much attention to it from a Political standpoint.  Plus, they seem to make a common liberal-esque mistake is concentrating on the evil committed by Israel and ignoring the evil committed by the Arabs surrounding Israel (including the Palestinians themselves).  No one is guiltless in the Arab-Israeli Conflict.  Not the Jews and certainly not the Muslims.

All that said, I like it.

America’s Christian Inferiority Complex

Do American Christians have an inferiority complex?

The above photo would give that impression.  Some person decided that he should create this picture and shoot it around the internet.  Of course, he uses Islam as the juxtaposition.  He might have used a group of Hindus praying or Buddhists in contemplation.  Why not Wiccans?  Satanists?  Daoists?

It’s the obvious emotional ploy.  Aside from the fact that no one really has a problem with Tebow praying in public except, perhaps, Jesus himself.  The complaint that I’ve most often heard is from players on opposing teams.  That complaint being that God is on their side, too.  Why does Tebow think that he’s so special that God would intervene on his behalf and not theirs.  Players pray in the NFL and NBA all the time.  So much so that I get sick of them publicly thanking God for the big win.

To the photo!

What’s occurring in the two pictures?

#1   Muslims in an area designated for their daily prayers acting out one of their five daily devotionals to Allah in a Mosque.  They’re repeating a set prayer in a place of worship.  This same prayer which is memorized by all devout Muslims is offered by millions of Muslims daily.  Five times daily.  Muslims go to their Mosque or other designated area.  If they’re not near a mosque a designated prayer area, they usually find some private place to pray.  They lay down their prayer rug.  They bow.  They pray.  Same prayer.  Five times a day.  Every day.  The truly devout Muslims do this.  Other Muslims pray when they feel like it or not at all.

Note that this prayer is occurring in a designated area in what I believe is New York City.

#2  Tim Tebow is on the sideline of a Football Stadium on National TV.  He’s kneeling.  He’s offering up a prayer to God.  What is his prayer?  For what are we to assume that he’s praying?  World Peace?  Universal Harmony?  Not to embarrass himself and the Denver Broncos in a football game?  Victory in a Football Game?

What’s he praying for?

I have no problem with the guy praying.  I can understand why members of the other team would think that he’s grand standing when he prays in the middle of a game on the sidelines as if he’s David about to do battle with Goliath or Constantine about to meet the savages of Briton.

I can understand why so many people are making fun of him.  It’s completely understandable.  He’s made himself into a caricature of Christian arrogance and hypocrisy.  He’s praying on the sidelines of a football game and his stance usually looks strikingly similar to a famous portrait of George Washington praying at Valley Forge.

He’s asking God to take time out of his busy schedule to help Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos prevail in a Football Game.  A Football Game.  Yeap.  Never mind all those wars, the famine, the hurricanes, floods and tornadoes ripping through the world.  God, please stop everything else and help me win this football game.  It’s a bit ridiculous.

The players on the opposing team are probably sending up their own prayers.  However, they’re not doing it in such a manner that the whole world can see them.  They’re silently offering their prayers in the manner that Jesus himself said that Christians should offer their prayers.  Prayers are personal and private.  A prayer is a conversation between God and an individual.  Does Tebow think that God is more likely to answer his prayers if he’s seen praying on National TV?  Maybe he thinks God is watching the game on a satellite dish in Heaven.

I understand that he’s attempting to set an example.  Be a good role model.  I don’t know if that’s the way to do it.  Maybe it is.  If you take something personal and put it in the public realm, don’t be surprised and certainly don’t be thin skinned if other public people ridicule the act or, at the very least, call into question your motives.  Perhaps ignoring the actual instructions of Christ is a good and Christian way of setting a proper Christian example for other Christians.

Let’s see what the Bible says about Prayer.  This is what Jesus had to say concerning how and where to pray;

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

That’s Mathew 6:6.

It’s instructive to note that Jesus didn’t say to walk onto the sidelines of an NFL Game on National TV and pray in front of three or four million people.  His basic instruction was to NOT showboat and to not make it a public spectacle.  Jesus wasn’t a big fan of public spectacle.  Perhaps, there has been a papal bull wherein the Acts of Tebow supercede the Life of Christ and the Bible.

Muslims are actually instructed to pray publicly.  Mohammad had no problem with public acts of piety.

Jesus, however, instructed Christians to pray in their rooms.

Christians should ask themselves the question in the photo.  What is wrong with that picture?  The Bible has the answers.  It’s called the Word of God by Christians.  The answer is in the very words of Jesus when he instructed the Disciples on how to pray.  The same time that he gave Christians the Lord’s Prayer.

But you good Christians knew that…didn’t you.

Sometimes, I have to wonder if Christians actually read the Bible.  Perhaps, they’re too busy thinking of new and improved ways to be offended by Muslims to pay attention to the Life of Christ or his words.  I must have missed that passage in the Bible that states “Thou shalt be offended.”

Christians have gone so far away from Christ that I’m surprised any of them own a Bible.  Sometimes, it seems that too many Christians learned how to be “good” Christians while watching the Kingdom of Heaven.

Or Strategic Posturing?

Israel: An Apartheid State?

Next they’ll be telling us that America is an Apartheid State.  Transy-Progs really are stupid.

Having visited Israel several times, I can tell you that it is not an Apartheid State.

Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and a whole slew of other Muslim Nations…well, I can’t vouch for them.  I can only say that they oppress and repress any form of religion, action or thought that aren’t conducive to Islam or being a good Muslim.  They have religious police.  They have chastity police.  They have people who run around beating and arresting folks for such heinous acts as holding hands in public or hair hanging out of your hijab.   You know.  Those kinds of terrible crimes.

God forbid if you are a homosexual or if you are caught in the company of the opposite sex and he/she isn’t your blood relative.  It’s off to prison and torture for you.

A Palestinian State would be an exact replica of Saudi Arabia or Iran.

And bringing another abortion of a nation such as these is why the idiotic leftists are fighting Israel.

Morons!

Absentee Parents?

Where did this idea of the “absentee father” (parent) come from?

We act as if this is abnormal. From what I can tell, it has always been that way. In the past, the Mother nurtured as Father worked. The Father has always been more out of the home than in the home.

When, why, how and who created this false impression of normality being the Father staying at home and raising the children?

Where did children get the idea that Daddy should stay home and cuddle with them on the couch all day?
Where did adults get the idea that they were abused or neglected if Daddy didn’t spend a minimum of 20 hours per week with them when they were children?
Was it simply the first step in conditioning us for Big Brother to take over our lives?
If anyone has an answer, feel free to leave it in the comments.

This is what happens when you give a Monkey an AK47

This guy is a freakin’ idiot!

Hand a monkey an AK47 and you get bullets slung at you.  lol

It’s a hoax.  I had no idea. 

US Marines Urinate on Dead Combatants

OK.  It’s not good.  I get it.  US Marines shouldn’t run around desecrating the corpses of the dead.

That said, I don’t want to hear it.  Almost any time that an enemy combatant is captured in the Muslim world, they’re beaten, kicked and dragged through the streets.  If an enemy combatant is killed and the body is somehow left in possession of the taliban or whomever in the Muslim world, that body is mutilated, dragged through the streets, kicked, beaten, sexually molested, sodomized with clubs and sticks and rifle barrels.  They hang dead bodies from light poles and light them on fire.

The taliban is most guilty of this behavior.

If a Westerner is captured by the taliban, expect to be beaten and then beheaded.

Yet, the Media, Hamid Karzai, the taliban jumped on this event like it was the worst behavior ever witnessed in the history of mankind.  They even issued a statement speaking to the horrifying torturous behavior.  Stating that the US Military is trained to terrorize the world.

Of course, Hamid Karzai the hypocrite has issued a statement condemning the behavior.  He issues a statement anytime someone other than an Afghan does something terrible.  When Afghans do something or the Taliban, who, let’s face it, are mostly Pakistani, Karzai is strangely silent.

Our politicians, led by Hillary Clinton, fell all over themselves lining up to apologize and condemn this behavior “in the most strong terms possible.”

Al Jazeera has been running this story every ten seconds.  It makes me laugh.  Go back and run those pictures of the taliban beheading Gurkha soldiers down in Qandahar.  Run the pictures of Najibullah being hung from a telephone pole in Kabul.  He hung there for weeks.  Run those photos of Muslims sodomizing Qaddafi again. Run the photos of the Blackwater guys being dragged through the streets in Fallujah.

It’s idiotic.

5 or 6 Marines.  They look to be around 20 years old.  They acted foolishly.  There is no doubt.  They pissed on dead bodies.  Dead bodies of taliban who more than likely have done much worse than pissing on a corpse or two.  Let’s not kid ourselves here.  Those dead enemy combatants when they were alive belonged to the most heinous gang of monsters to run across the pages of history.  They’re lucky that a few drops of urine were all that dropped on them.  The taliban are the most disgusting and decrepit group of genocidal criminals in history.  They’re 100 times more monstrous than Stalin or Hitler.  These people are criminals who are not deserving of human dignity.  How concerned were the taliban with human dignity when they were the power in Afghanistan?  How concerned were they with human dignity when they forced women to confine themselves to their homes and starve to death because there was no male family member extant to take them to the market to purchase food.  How concerned were the taliban with human rights when they captured US and ISAF soldiers and desecrated their bodies?  How concerned are the taliban with human dignity when they’re attempting to assissinate Malalai Joya and other dissidents in Afghanistan.

A taliban spokesman speaking about human rights and human dignity is comparable to Hitler talking about respect and love for Jews and Judaism.  It’s farcical.  I’d rather listen to Iran talk about human rights for homosexuals and freedom for woman.  It’s the same thing.

I’m disgusted that we’re talking to the taliban at all.  We should be annihilating them.  The taliban are inhuman.  They’re disgusting, child molesting monsters.  They should be treated exactly as we treated Hitlers minions.  Every last one of them.  Hunt them down and kill all of them.

All of this whining about a squad of Marines pissing on a few talib djinn is fluff.  It’s beside the point.  Punish the Marines for being complete Jackasses and then get on with annihilating the taliban once and for all.

And then, we have this:

The Council on Islamic-American Relations, a prominent Muslim civil rights and advocacy group based in Washington, quickly condemned the video.

“We condemn this apparent desecration of the dead as a violation of our nation’s military regulations and of international laws of war prohibiting such disgusting and immoral actions,” the group wrote in a letter faxed to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.

Would CAIR give a damn about this incident if these taliban were not Muslims?  I’d say no.   Not at all.  Did CAIR send a fax to the taliban the last time that they desecrated the dead.  I doubt it.  Hypocrites.

The difference between the US/West  and the Taliban could not be more obvious in times like this.  The taliban celebrates this behavior when their people act in this way.  America and Americans condemn it.  America and the West will punish those responsible for behavior like this.  The Taliban would celebrate and reward such behavior.

So, please, Mr. Taliban Spokesman, please.  Shut the hell up.

Kentucky Basketball and Racism

Tubby Smith is not doing so well at Minnesota.  Soon, he’ll be on the hot seat.  When that happens, the media and others will start talking about his time at Kentucky again.  Inevitably, they’ll drag Kentucky over the coals again.  Kentucky fans will be called racists again.

They’ll ignore the fact that we actually did want Billy Gillispie fired after a mere two seasons.  Gillispie is white.  So, that doesn’t fit the stereotype.  If Kentucky fans wanted Billy G gone after two years and gave Tubby nearly a decade to get it together, well, that doesn’t fit the agenda.  That makes it seem that Kentucky fans are simply crazy in a basketball sports fan manner.  It kills the idea that Kentucky fans hated Tubby Smith simply because he was Black.  That won’t do.  The hurts the media agenda to paint Kentucky and it’s fans as backward, unrepentant racist who wish for nothing more than a return to Jim Crow.

We can’t have that.  What would Michael Wilbon whine about?  How will he justify his rants against Kentucky fans?  Dick Vitale would have to admit that Tubby Smith actually failed at UK and his over emotional, lunatic rants and pleas were over the top and unwarranted.

We can’t have that.  That would require an admission of error.  Heaven forbid!

The racist thing is overplayed in America today.

For instance, the starting 5 at UK are African American. The Starting 5 at UK has been African American for the most part for over 20 years. Kentuckians get behind these kids wholeheartedly.

Somehow, these same fans who love Black kids who actually play the game hate a Black Coach simply because he’s BLACK.

HUH!?!

How is that possible?

Tubby didn’t measure up. It had absolutely nothing to do with his skin color.

Those same “racist” fans turned on Billy Gillispie faster than they turned on Tubby Smith. Billy G is a white guy. So, do Kentuckians hate white people as well or do they dislike losing ten games a year and consistent team turmoil.

Could it be that what they wanted was a winning coach who understood the passion that they have for Kentucky Basketball. Kentucky Basketball is supposed to run the fast break in a way that makes Kentucky Derby thoroughbreds look like snails in hibernation.

That wasn’t Tubby ball. Ball Line D was and is boring. Especially when Tubby is recruiting scrubs out of Canada and Fordham to run it. THAT was the rub. 99% of Kentucky fans couldn’t have cared less about the skin color of Tubby. If the guy would have come in and rolled like Pitino or Calipari, they’d be naming their kids Tubby and Orlando. These same Cat fans bitched and moaned about Joe B. Hall for the whole damn time that he was there. Joe B, Hall made 3 Final Fours and won a Championship with his own team.

That is not to say that Kentucky doesn’t have its share of racists. Then again….so does Minnesota and every other state in America.

I don’t know how anyone can say with a straight face that the people who love John Wall, Anthony Davis, MKG, Jamaal Mashburn, Derek Anderson, Jamaal Magloire Demarcus Cousins and Jack Goose Givens, Chuck Hayes, Patrick Patterson and the football talent that is Randall Cobb hates Tubby Smith due solely to his skin color.

That won’t stop the media from standing by their lies and erroneous assertions.

Minnesota will eventually fire Tubby Smith unless he decides to retire after this year.  When that happens, the reason will have nothing to do with Smiths race.  It will be his record and his inability to take the Gophers to the next level.  When you pay a Coach a Top 20 Salary, you expect Top 20 results.  That’s the bottom line.

Minnesota is not getting Top 20 results from Tubby Smith.  Smith, thought, seems to believe that this money is his due based on past results.  He won a Championship in 1998.  Because of that, Tubby seems to believe that Minnesota should give him a BIG PAYCHECK regardless of results AT MINNESOTA.

Smith is no longer capable of Top 20 results.  He hasn’t been for some time.  Minnesota is slowly coming to this realization.  Too late, though.  They’ve wasted 4 years and nearly 8 Million dollars learning what Kentucky learned in Tubbys last 2 or 3 years.

Minnesota deserves this, though.  They arrogantly assumed that they were getting the Tubby of the 1990s.  Fasinatingly similar to Louisville and their hiring of Pitino.  UL thought that they were getting the Pitino of the 90s.  They didn’t.  He’s not.  Neither of them are.

There’s a lesson there.

Tubby Smith’s Last Year as a Gopher?

 

The Tubster stunk it up at Kentucky his last few years.  He refused to recruit and equally stubbornly refused to make changes in his beloved system or with his Assistant Coaches.  Then the Tubster fled.  TLT ran off to Minnesota.  He’d spent half of his last season at Kentucky negotiating with Minnesota for the Gopher Head Coach position.

Kentucky fans attempted to warn Gopher fans.  Gopher fans simply assumed that the Sports Media was correct and that UK fans were all rabid racists with White Knight cloaks stored in our closets.  That’d be funny to see as I know quite a few Black UK fans who were just as fed up with Tubby and his TLT sports nightmare.

Dick Vitale and Michael Wilbon excoriated the State of Kentucky, the University of Kentucky and Kentucky Fans.  Wilbon called us all racists.  Said we deserved what we had coming and that UK would not be a great program again.  Good old Dick Vitale pleaded to the NCAA Coaching community to avoid the UK job.  He pleaded with Billy Donovan to NOT go to Kentucky to replace Smith.

Now, the chickens have come home to roost.  Tubby Smith has done exactly what his Kentucky critics said that he’d do at Minnesota.  That being exactly NOTHING.  He’s losing.  He can’t win in the NCAA Tournament…when he can even get there.  He won’t recruit.  He is, again, stubbornly sticking with his Assistant Coaching circle of failed former head coaches.

TLT is close to being fired.  If he makes it to the 2012-2013 Season, I’ll be surprised.  TLT is 0-4 in Big Ten play and hasn’t even played the better teams in that League.

This surprises no one who was forced to watch him destroy the Kentucky Basketball program.

The question that I have is:

Will Dick Vitale and Michael Wilbon go crazy on Minnesota fans and repeat their behavior and the hateful attitudes that they aimed at Kentucky fans?

Now that every UK fan who wasn’t a Tubby Zombie have been proven right, will Wilbon and Vitale apologize?

I doubt it will happen.  Tubby will retire in a haze of invisibility.  Dickie V may notice and, if he does, he’ll find some way to gloss over the failure of Tubby at UM.

Wilbon will ignore it as he was proven wrong by the failure of Tubby to produce anything.  no Big Ten Title.  Not even an NBA draft pick.

Tubby will retire.  The Sports media will ignore it for the most part.

This guy, though, called it right.  One of the few…

I had these made out of an Afghan National Army Combat Uniform.  I don’t know why.  Sometimes, ya just do what ya do.

If I thought he’d get it, I’d send one to MKG.

1. I’D TAKE MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST OVER ANY PLAYER IN AMERICA

Some people told me I was crazy when I made that statement prior to Kentucky’s win over Louisville on Saturday but when you watch “MKG” play, it’s tough not to see why he’s more valuable than anyone else in college basketball. Whether it’s a tip in on the offensive glass or a taking a charge in the paint, everything Kidd-Gilchrist does affects one thing — winning. In the Wildcats 69-62 win over the Cardinals on Saturday, the freshman wing tallied 24 points and 19 rebounds while shining brighter than any other player in a game that was loaded with star power. It’s amazing to think that John Calipari welcomed back three starters from last year’s team that reached the Final Four last season in Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb, and Darius Miller and Kentucky’s two best players are two freshmen — Kidd-Gilchrist and Anthony Davis.
