The “Good” War

So you would have fought during World War II but not Nam, Korea or Iraq and Afghanistan.

What was the actual outcome of World War II?
w6m17k
Why did we fight World War II?

Why did Japan attack Pearl Harbor?

Britain and France declared war on Germany because Germany invaded Poland. That was the pretense at any rate.

Japan attacked Pearl Harbor after America had engaged in a systematic effort to deny the Empire of Japan the resources necessary to build their Nation and Empire.

By the end of World War II, Poland and all of Eastern Europe was in the hands of a greater evil than Hitler could ever have hoped to represent. That evil being the Soviet Union.

Soviet Communism which later morphed into Maoist Communism took China.

Communism also swept through Southeast Asia.

The end result of World War II was that the West fought Japan and Germany in order to hand over their Empires to the Soviet Union.

World War II was a direct cause of the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cold War and attributed to the rise of Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia is the cause of 90% of the Islamic Fundamentalism on this Globe. Islamic Fundamentalism is the root of Islamic Terrorism.

If there were no Saudi Arabia, there would exist no taliban, no ISIS, no al Qaeda, no Khorasan and so on and so forth.

Fundamentalist Shi’a Iran can also be traced to poor decision making based on the the Cold War anti-Communist paranoia that haunted the West from 1945 through the end of the Soviet Union circa 1991.

The Arab-Israeli Conflict can be traced back to World Wars 1 and 2.

World War II also gave us the CIA and the NSA via Cold War paranoia.

You can research any and all of this with a simple google search.

I’m not seeing how World War II was “the good war.” It was an asinine war prompted by the American Banking conglomeration.

World War II was not the good war. It was a war like any other only on a global scale. It put the globe to the flame and destroyed millions of lives and billions of dollars of property.

America profited from the outcome immensely which drove our recovery out of the Great Depression and into the boom years of the 50s and 60s.

It was as much an elective war for the United States of America as Polk’s Mexican War or LBJ’s Vietnam War or Bush’s Iraq War or Obama’s wars in Yemen, Pakistan and Somalia.

Dear America, You are Slaves, at Worst, Indentured Servants, at Best

hqdefault

Everything in America is commercialized and monetized. This is America. It’s also what is wrong with America.

Everyone thinks that everything that they do is “special.” It’s not.

Most of you/us are wage slaves beholden financially to a giant corporation which gives less than two thoughts to anything beyond the bottom line. If it’s not producing profit, it has no value.

Get used to it. You should already be used to it. It’s been this way since at least 1913 when the income tax was passed and each American became nothing more than a Dollar Sign to the Mother Corporation.

To Mother America, you are nothing but a tax collection point. You have no rights that Mother America is bound to respect.

Change “Black” to “Citizens.” Change “the white man” to the “Federal Government.” This simple statement gives you the reality of the UNITED STATES (Corp US.) Of America.

You are Dredd Scott.

Michael Moore and Freedom of Speech

 10959850_10202440991861181_8297049850636645370_n

America has been supporting despotic monarchies since, at least, World War II. That thanks to our late, “Great” President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It is disgusting to me and should be to any American that we are so deeply embedded with the tyrants of this world. All in the name of Corporate Greed. But don’t let that stop anyone from decrying Moore as a hypocrite or a fat ass. I think it disgusting how obese MM has become. He looks like a muppet, he’s so fat.

 
Some of the points he makes in his documentaries are very much laden with truths. Yet, he has attacked corporate greed and does profit from the same system. I can’t blame the guy for using the system as it is. He cannot change the whole of the system. He can only make others aware. Certainly, he is a bit of an ass in the way that he gets his point across. I have a certain amount of respect for that, though.
 
My goal in life has always been to comfort the afflicted while afflicting the comfortable. Working within the system is a good way to go about it. The only persons who can work outside of the system are those willing to be outlaws and those who are born to a silver spoon. Moore serves his purpose and I, for one, am glad to have him speaking his truth. His truth is as valid as many others, more valid than some and less than others. To dismiss all of Moore’s work simply because it makes one uncomfortable is unintelligent and speaks more to the listener than the crier.

Moore is still an American. Even if there are aspects of America with which he disagrees. The Conservative Right hates more because he exercises his right to Freedom of Speech. This is hypocritical of the Right. Moore should speak his mind and tell his truth. If that leaves the Right butthurt, so be it. I, for one, can see where Moore has been correct. A good, healthy, open minded reading of history proves Moore to be correct in many of his more salient points in his documentaries. Moore recently stated that snipers were cowards and shot people in the back. Many folks who have been to War agree with this sentiment. A sniper hides and takes shots at folks who have no idea from where they are being sniped. This is the nature of the job. It’s the same in any war, their snipers are murderous cowards. Our snipers are valiant heroes. That’s the nature of propaganda.

It’s the same with insurgents. The Founding Fathers and the Revolutionary heroes such as the Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox, are hailed as heroes. There is not a whole lot of difference in the tactics of Marion and those of ISIS or al Qaeda. Both used terror tactics to achieve a goal of independence. We see it differently only because those tactics when used by ISIS and al Qaeda are an attack on our values and our world view. However, there is no difference. In the American Civil War, Federal Soldiers led by General Sherman raped, pillaged and burned their way through the South. ISIS is doing the same thing in Iraq and Syria. We hail Sherman as a hero for the same actions for which we deem ISIS as villainous and evil.

It’s propaganda. Michael Moore has done nothing more than bring transparency to our hypocrisy and we hate him for it. He’s put a mirror to our face and forced us to peer into our own souls. Sometimes, that viewing leaves us disquieted. This is the nature of what I call Statism. The State wishes us to believe that we are good when we perpetrate evil. We excuse our own excesses. We rationalize our murders and genocidal behaviors. They are evil because they wish that which we do not. It matters not what it is. It only matters that the State tells us that they are wrong and we are right. They are evil. We are righteous. Despite the fact that our actions mirror one another.

Moore is guilty of nothing more than bringing a different perspective to the discussion. We hate him because his perception makes us uncomfortable. That and he is as guilty as the rest of us. He defends or stays silent in the face of the criminality of Obama and the Left. Yet, screams to the heavens when Bush was taking the exact same actions as Obama does now. I am waiting for the Michael Moore treatment of the illegal assassination of Anwar Al Awlaki and his son. Until Moore is as outspoken of the crimes of Obama as he was of the crimes of Bush, I see Moore as nothing more than a Statist propagandist for the Left. I have no respect for the man based on this hypocrisy. That and he is way to intelligent and wealthy to be such an obese monstrosity. He must know that his obesity will kill him.

 
Such is my belief at any rate.

Leftist Angst and Ignorance and the American Sniper

Sniper Chris Kyle
I’ve read that the true measure of heroism is lives saved. By that definition, Kyle was a hero. Many of the lives that he took with his sniper rifle saved the lives of American soldiers who were the targets of the persons whom Kyle killed. These were insurgents bent on shooting, rocketing or planting IEDs with the intent to kill Americans and Iraqis.

Don’t blame Chris Kyle for going to war. Don’t excoriate him for liking or not disliking war. Don’t mock him because he didn’t take a nuanced view of Iraq or Iraqis. Most of the folks who are criticizing this man’s life and military experience have no idea what it is like to be in combat. Most of them are missing the point entirely. Chris Kyle was a pawn in a larger game. Bush and Obama sent him to Iraq to kill and wage war on those whom the US government filled with your elected representatives claim were/are enemies of the United States. This war was never and is still not about Democracy or an existential threat to America. The wars of the past decade and a half have about control of resources. Both Obama and Bush played this game well. They simultaneously played the American people.

Kyle is an easy target. Especially so, since he is dead. The true target of your ire should be the Corporate CEOs, Bankers and Politicians. However, Kyle being the easier target, American Liberals (Democrats) will instead cowardly attack the dead.

The Precedent of Murder & Barack Obama

KillObama-Poster-PNG_Final

I apologize if I sound a bit of the ass.

I always find it surprising the ignorance of the US citizen.

No matter how many times I speak of this I get the deniers. They can’t believe that this has been done by Obama.

My thing is that this “education” is but a google search away.

Google Obama + Assassination + US Citizen

Andrew Napolitano has written about it on several occasions. It’s all over the internet. It’s in books.

I have to wonder if Americans read. Do Americans care.

It seems to me that Americans know only what FOX News (Conservatives) or MSNBC/CNN (Liberals) tell them.

With the internet, “education” is but a few keystrokes away.

Why would anyone need to ask someone else to “educate” them when Google exists?

Alas, I get this all of the time. Especially from Liberals when discussing Obama and his extra-Constitutional activities vis-a-vis Due Process and the taking of Life, Liberty and Property.

This is, after all, what the US Constitution is all about. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. There is no Liberty without the right to property. There is no liberty without the right to life. Life is property. You are your property. All that you own is yours because you are you and you have the right to contract. These rights are guaranteed by the United States Constitution.

Yet, Barack Obama has made himself greater than the US Constitution by granting himself the power to take life of both non-Citizens and US Citizens without due process. He has taken upon himself the “right” to deny the basic right to life from Citizens of the United States of America.

And that is a precedent that is more dangerous than any set before by any US President save, perhaps, Lincoln and FDR.

Yet, the majority of Americans are oblivious that these precedents have been set and, worse still, is that most Americans have no idea of the dangers of these precedents.

  • No honest man or woman in Germany feels responsible for these things. Good Germans took Nazism as a new religion. These people are shocked by the revelations which have shown that Nazism was not idealism, but a means to the performance of criminal acts…
    In war a German feels bound to join the ranks without question. Three of my sons were called up. I could not hold back. I wrote from the concentration camp to Admiral Raeder, C. in C. of the Navy, asking to be allowed to return to the submarine service or to do any other service in the Navy. I heard nothing for several months, and then a reply came, not from Raeder but from Keitel, head of the Wehrmacht. He thanked me, but regretted I could not be employed on active service.

    • Replying to questions on the atrocities of the concentration camps, at a press conference in Naples, Italy, and confirming that he actually had written a widely publicized letter from such a camp, early in the war, to be permitted to serve in the military (5 June 1945).

Barack Obama is Delusional. History Shows Him a Fool.

US President Obama waves from a golf cart in Kailua

This is President Obama’s reaction to the death of James Foley.  In the statement, he shows a naive, wishful view of World History.

Radicals are the “folks” who move history.  Radicals end nations and start nations.

Even our Founding Fathers were radicals.  Look back to the American Revolution.  The Revolutionaries carried out some nasty deeds.  Massacres…town burnings…hangings.  I’m fairly certain they beheaded a few people as well.

Obama seems to think that history is made by peaceful “folks” who suddenly agree that things should change.  I think he’s seen one too many “Faux Revolutions” in Eastern Europe.  He seems to think that those “upheavals” were the norm.  What happened when the Cold War ended and the walls came tumbling down.  The history of the era is not so bloodless as they seem.  The old regimes’ rulers died.  It’s just that they didn’t show it on TV.  The 90s upheavals were heavily sanitized here in the West.  We weren’t shown the deaths that are inevitable with any regime change.  These things are inherently violent.  

And then we had the Balkans.  Plenty of folks were killed.  Massacres were everywhere in the Balkans.  So much so that Clinton decided that he had to intervene.  Serbians hate America to this day.  

Below is the Obama delusion:

President Obama delivered the following remarks in Martha’s Vineyard on the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the militant group Islamic State. Transcript courtesy of Federal News Service.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Good afternoon, everybody.

Today, the entire world is appalled by the brutal murder of Jim Foley by the terrorist group ISIL. Jim was a journalist, a son, a brother and a friend. He reported from difficult and dangerous places, bearing witness to the lives of people a world away.

He was taken hostage nearly two years ago in Syria, and he was courageously reporting at the time on the conflict there. Jim was taken from us in an act of violence that shocked the conscience of the entire world. He was 40 years old, one of five siblings, the son of a mom and dad who worked tirelessly for his release. Earlier today, I spoke to the Foleys and told them that we are all heartbroken at their loss and join them in honoring Jim and all that he did.

Now, Jim Foley’s life stands in stark contrast to his killers. Let’s be clear about ISIL. They have rampaged across cities and villages killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children and subject them to torture and rape and slavery. They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion.

They declared their ambition to commit genocide against an ancient people. So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just god would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day. ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt. They may claim out of expediency that they are at war with the United States or the West, but the fact is they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision and the collapse of any definition of civilized behavior.

People like this ultimately fail. They fail because the future is won by those who build and not destroy. The world is shaped by people like Jim Foley and the overwhelming majority of humanity who are appalled by those who killed him. The United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people. We will be vigilant and we will be relentless. When people harm Americans anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done and we act against ISIL, standing alongside others. The people of Iraq, who with our support are taking the fight to ISIL must continue coming together to expel these terrorists from their community. The people of Syria, whose story Jim Foley told, do not deserve to live under the shadow of a tyrant or terrorists. They have our support in their pursuit of a future rooted in dignity.

From governments and peoples across the Middle East, there has to be a common effort to extract this cancer so that it does not spread. There has to be a clear rejection of this kind of nihilistic ideologies. One thing we can all agree on is that a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century. Friends and allies around the world, we share a common security and a common set of values that are rooted in the opposite of what we saw yesterday. And we will continue to confront this hateful terrorism and replace it with a sense of hope and civility.

And that’s what Jim Foley stood for, a man who lived his word, who courageously told the stories of his fellow human beings, who was liked and loved by friends and family. Today, the American people will all say a prayer for those who loved Jim. All of us feel the ache of his absence. All of us morn his loss. We keep in our prayers those other Americans who are separated from their families. And we will do everything that we can to protect our people and the timeless values that we stand for. May God bless and keep Jim’s memory. And may God bless the United States of America.

Most of the remarks were empty words.  Harmless.  Meant to make the Foley family feel as though the US did all it could to retrieve their son and bring him to safety.  This is and obvious lie but one that all Presidents tell the American people.  One can’t blame Obama for following in the footsteps of Reagan, Carter, FDR and LBJ.  Lies are common when Presidents speak to the America people.  

“All we have to fear is fear itself…;” said FDR.  He left out the Bankers and others who love to push America to war for profit.  After all, he was in cahoots with the Bankers.  Why would he speak truth to the power of the Bankers in American Foreign Policy.  If the American people were ever roused to the truth of American Banks…well, nothing.  Americans are too busy watching American Idol.

Obama says that no religion “teaches massacre of innocents.”  This lie ignores the commandments of God in the Old Testament and the Suras in the Qu’ran which continually command Muslims to murder the non-believer.  Until we come to terms with the truth that religions (faiths) do command murder, genocide and the killing of those who believe differently, we’re not going to successfully change the attitudes of the believers of this Earth.  We ignore the truths regarding these faiths at our own peril.  Obama should know better as he is a secularist and only pretends to be a church goer for political reasons.  It’s time, or rather it is past time, to speak the truth to these religions and of these religions.  

Christianity and Islam have blood stained histories.  That much they have in common.  Both are knee deep in the blood of innocents.  Let us speak the truth.

Obama also says that “people like this ultimately fail. They fail because the future is won by those who build and not destroy.”  

This is half truth at best.  Stalin did not fail.  Mao did not fail.  Pol Pot did not fail.  Ho Chi Minh did not fail.  Tamerlane did not fail.  Genghis Khan did not fail.  Alexander the Great did not fail.  The radical and the violent succeed.  The radical and the violent do not fail.  To say that the future is won by those who build and not those who destroy ignores 6,000 years of human history.  Even America has destroyed.  The American North invaded the American South and destroyed it.  The American South still feels the wrath of the Northern Invasion.  

Obama’s hero Che Guevara is one of those who was a destroyer.  He believed and acted on the belief that Capitalist societies must be destroyed in order to re-build a more egalitarian society.  He acted similarly to ISIS and al Qaeda.  Che used the tactic of terrorism to destroy the governments in Central and South America.  

Perhaps, this has Obama confused.

America Beware: History and Political Parties

America Beware: History and Political Parties

If you believe that Democrats are Good or that Republicans are Evil, I’d suggest a look at history.

Both parties have tried to be the party of humanity. Both parties have failed. Both parties claim to be for the rights of humanity. Both parties continuously and consistently fail to work for the betterment of humanity. Both parties lie to the American public first and above all.

If someone attempts to tell you that the GOP or the DNC wishes the citizen well, that person is lying.

The Obama Legacy (Oligarchy and Soft Martial Law)

Image

Obama’s legacy is:

Terror Tuesdays
Drone Warfare on steroids
the murder of US citizens
ramping up the Police State
supporting 3rd World thugs
trillion dollar indebtedness
an economy on the brink of collapse
America viewed as the greatest threat to world stability
Obamacare ensuring that the “health industry” is raping the American taxpayer
using the IRS and DHS to destroy political enemies
Fed Reserve more powerful than ever
employment transformed into permanent wage slavery
the 1% more influential and wealthy than ever in American history
the madness of taunting Russia unnecessarily in the Ukraine and Eastern Europe (continuing Bill Clinton’s legacy)
presiding over the final slide from Republicanism to Oligarchism
Occupy movement folks imprisoned for protesting based upon KGB tactics
NSA domestic spying
CIA operating in America
The Drug War trumping up charges on average Americans
the militarization of all areas of American governance from local to federal levels

And soon, if you don’t pay your taxes on time, you won’t be able to depart the US.

Even non-US citizens are being stalked and harassed over funds “owed” to the US.

And his greatest achievement: fooling “democrats” into believing that he is doing all of this for their benefit

#IdiotAmerica, What about any of this sounds like hope? What about any of this sounds like freedom? Obama doesn’t need to take anyone’s guns. He’s brought more war machinery to the US Government than any US President in history.

In Obama’s America, we are all guilty until proven innocent.

America after Obama is not that different from Afghanistan.

And Obama is being lauded as a savior.

Awesome!

Republicans and Democrats are the proving to have been the destruction of America. Good job!

There’s your hope and change. May you all get what you deserve.

Obamacare Whistles Past the Train Yard

Ozombies standing at the Obaminable Care Train Station

Ozombies standing at the Obaminable Care Train Station

To the whining, illiterate Democrats out there:

This is not a comparison of Obamacare and the Holocaust/Nazi Train rides:

“Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory sign ups for “train rides” for Jews in the 40s.”

In this comparison, the subjects of comparison are Democrats and Germans.

The Tennessee Senator is likening Democratic bragging to German bragging.

He is not likening or comparing Obamacare with the holocaust or to “train rides.”

Apparently, Democrats have comprehension issues which explains why they voted for Obama, Carter, Kerry, Mondale, etc.

However I disagree with the Senator. I would liken Democrats to Mao’s minions during the Great Leap Forward not to Nazis. Democrats have always identified with the communists and socialists. This is their preferred oppressive style. They prefer slow, indirect murder of the masses disguised as cultural egalitarianism or “progress” to straight out undisguised murder based on hatred or supremacy.

Though, Democrats do believe in their own supremacy and Democrats are extremely hateful.  In this, I see no difference between the average Democrat and the average Republican. They exist as two sides of the same hateful, self aggrandizing coin.  Each believes that they are victims of the other and each believes wholeheartedly that they know the true path. Each party and it’s respective minions is willing to sacrifice all others as a means to achieve their good and noble ends and in this way paves the paths to hell with their good and honest intentions.

Leaving the rest of us to hell on earth.

Instead,  I’m hoping that the GOP and DNC burn in hell.  May the GoDs make it so.

Secessionist Puppetry

 

 

When it comes to other nation-states, the Left seems to be all for secession. However, in America, the Left is pro-Centralized State and against secession.

The Left prefers, instead, to hold people in a union against their will. When the subject of secession is broached in America, the Left cries “redneck” and asks; “how’d that work out for the South?”

Why the double standard?

Americans, where freedom and liberty are supposed to be the standard bearer, are, according to the left, not accorded freedom to choose association on the Nation-State level. This privilege is only for Serbians, Kosovars, Albanians, Macedonians, Ukrainians.

However, even in these instances, these peoples are only allowed to enter into secessionist activities if they are seen to be oppressed by European Whiteness and Christianity.

Apparently, White people and Christians, or even those loosely associated with Whiteness and Christianity, are no longer allowed to be free unless said freedom is pre-approved by the Western Leftists.

I think it is time to put down the Left. Unfortunately, the right is hideously contorted into absolutist fundamentalism and the independents in America are too dysfunctional to take a stance on any matter.

The Center of America is too idle or too easily swayed to comprehend that neither the right nor the left are looking out for their liberty or rights.

The American Political Parties represent a mere 40% or less of Americans. More than that, the American political parties true loyalties lie only with lobbying corporations and not with the American people. Corporations have chosen sides with the GOP and/or the DNC against America and Americans. Yet, there is a whole class of people in the middle who are neither Left nor Right. The Wars in America are between two parties that are run by monied interest. America is in the middle of this war and is victim of this war.

What can be done about this? Who is willing to stand up against the GOP, the DNC and their Banking & Corporate masters?  We have not had a President of, by and for the people since before the Gilded Age.  There will not be a National leader under the banner of either party who will stand for the people.  The GOP and DNC stand for Corporations.

It will be left for the people and these people will be accused by the GOP/DNC puppets of being extremists and terrorists.  Anyone brave enough to stand up to the system will be persecuted.  These persons will be vilified.  All GOP and DNC “patriots” will oppose them.  One has to believe that with 60% of Americans not truly identifying with either the GOP or the DNC that the majority of Americans believe that we are heading down a wrong path.  Yet, this 60% has no voice.

Where is our voice?  Who can stand up to the puppet masters?

American Idiots

Why do people trust the new administration or the last administration? How is it possible?

Each Presidential Administration in the past 100 years has been proven to have lied to the Citizenry of this nation. It has been proved that each of these persons and their underlings have lied, connived, circumvented the Constitution and profited from doing so.

Yet, we still believe that this one…yes, this one, the last one and the next one is, was or will be telling us the truth.

Americans are this pathetically stupid?

I keep going back to Johnny Walker Lindh. This guy was paraded in front of America as if he were the blood soaked re-incarnation of Tamerlane.

In the end, he was naught but a drug addled boy who had never handled a gun and was rounded up amongst a group of half assed “talibs” like cattle.

The dude did nothing. His crime was being in the wrong place at the wrong time and refusing to admit guilt when he was really guilty of nothing.

Yet, he was railroaded through our justice system and sentenced to prison.

Our system of justice is warped or perhaps, there is no justice in America. There is only those who have the funds to manipulate the legal system and those who do not.  Woe be unto those who do not have the means to fight and go against the grain.

I am supposedly a free man from a country governed by the principles of Liberty, yet, they tell me that I need permission to travel to Cuba.

Freedom?  Liberty?

Obama, Sanctions and a World Drowning in it’s own Blood

Image

Obama is big on economic sanctions. Sanctions only work when the leadership of a nation cares about the welfare of their people. If the leadership of a nation cared about their people, sanctions would not be necessary in the first place.

Think about it.

When have sanctions truly worked. Didn’t work in Iraq. Didn’t work for Britain against the American Colonies. Didn’t work for the American colonists against Britain. Didn’t work for the South against Britain in the American Civil War. Didn’t work in the Balkans. Neither did they work with World War 1 or 2 Germany. Nor the Soviet Union during the Cold War. They aren’t working now with Syria or Iran.

Air wars do not work either. Even in the Balkans which was primarily an air war, we had to occupy with ground forces.

The initial Air War in Afghanistan was a failure which led to massive troop deployments.

Violence works. But usually it is only a short term fix. Every war has led to other wars. Most of the wars occurring now find their seeds of discontent in the outcomes of the Second World War.

War is a tool. The problem is that we never follow through. We tire of our wars. We run out of patience, will, resources. Therefore, we leave every war half finished.

That leads directly to wars of the future.

When the United States pulls back with Obama’s leadership, it will leave a power vacuum. Geo-political power vacuums are never filled peacefully.

Men decide the outcomes of most struggles violently.

This bothers me not in the least. Let them kill each other. The earth is overcrowded as it is. America, I think, grows weary of holding back the teeming masses of brutish thugs. Set them loose.

But keep our military strong enough to keep them at bay should they decide to try American resolve at our borders.

Counter Insurgency and the ROE (Rules of Engagement)

The rules of engagement under which Obama and Petraeus has the American Military operating concedes the unnecessary deaths of Soldiers and Marines in Combat in the hopes that it will make our enemies like us.

Just three months after the raid by Navy SEAL Team VI that killed Osama bin Laden, those same SEALs were in the news yet again–but for an entirely different reason.

On August 6, 2011, while on their way to assist an ongoing mission in Wardak Province, Afghanistan, the CH-47D Chinook helicopter that they were riding in was shot down by an RPG fired by a Taliban fire team approaching their landing zone in Tangi Valley. All 38 American and Afghan service members who were aboard perished, including 17 Navy SEALS, 5 Navy Special Operations support personnel, 3 Air Force Special Tactics Airmen and the five-man Chinook crew, marking the largest loss of life in America’s 11 years of military operations in Afghanistan. Twenty of the twenty-two SEALs and SEAL support were from SEAL Team VI (DEVGRU).

The parents of one of the SEALs killed in the Chinook attack, Special Operations Chief  Aaron Vaughn, are raising questions about how the Obama administration has pushed the limits of the military’s Special Operations Forces as part of its war policy (e.g. the Feb. 20th Newsweek story, “Obama’s Secret Army”), and how constrictive “rules of engagement” intended to win the “hearts and minds” of the Afghan people directly contributed to the deaths of all those aboard the helicopter.

 

Why are we still engaged in Afghanistan?  According to many, the people do not want us there.  Karzai is making love to the Pakistanis and the Taliban.  Essentially, we have conceded the initiative to the enemy.

The Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF), all of the Ministries, the Parliament and Karzai are corrupt and bent on siphoning off all AID that is supposed to be going to build Afghanistan into a viable Nation.

Why are we still in Afghanistan?

Our enemies hate us.  Our allies do not respect us.  This is the reality in Afghanistan.

To make matters worse, we are so hellbent on becoming loved by our enemies that we are alienating our so called allies in the region and making no headway with our enemies and it is destroying all of our efforts at nation building.

Why are we still there?

Can anyone tell me why?

 

We should buy 33 Million of these t-shirts and drop them out C130s as we leave Afghanistan so that the Afghans will know that we thought that they were a complete waste of our time.

Cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible, avoiding occasions of expense by cultivating peace…avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt.

Shadow War against al Qaeda

http://www.sott.net/image/image/s1/23554/full/reaper_drone_art.jpg

I disagree with waging this “Shadow War” against al Qaeda.

Announce to the world that it is our intention to destroy al Qaeda.  They attacked our Nation.  They declared War.  We did not.  This is the War desired by Osama bin Laden and his motley crue of Wahhabist thieves, cuthroats and murderers.  They wanted it.  They got it.

Announce that we will strike al Qaeda wherever they exist.  Wherever they hide.  In any hole.  On any mountain.  On any sea.  In any place where al Qaeda deems it necessary to plant a parasitic, violent bud, we shall strike to root it out before it takes root.

Announce that if al Qaeda is allowed to plant operatives or to exist unmolested by the local populace, said populace will be accountable for the actions of al Qaeda and said population will be accountable for any and all deaths resulting from al Qaeda and their brothers and sisters.  The fault lies with the folks who cooperate with al Qaeda.

Tell the NGOs and Humitarian Organizations of whatever stripe that we do no hold ourselves accountable for the deaths surrnouding al Qaeda.  Whether it be bullets, cluster bombs or fragments of US munitions or suicide vests and IEDs from insurgents or al Qaeda operatives.

We did not want this war.  Nevertheless, we have it.  We intend to prosecute the war to it’s conclusion.  The conclusion is the destruction of al Qaeda and it’s subordinate and parallel organizaations in whatever part of the world it may exist.

After that announcement is made, we, The United States of America, should bomb the Nejd and every place sacred to the Wahhabis.  We should invade Saudi Arabia and hold Mekkah hostage all the while allowing the Hajj to continue unmolested.  Circulate rumours that we have planted a nuclear device under the Ka’aba along with the intent to detonate said device should a strike occur on US soil.

Also, we should pull out all military resources that protect or support or otherwise maintains the power of any Islamic despot.  From Cairo to Iraq and Afghanistan.  Tell the people of the Islamic World that their governance is now up to them.  If they show that they are worthy and willing to fight for Democracy and their share of the delights of Liberty and Freedom that we will at a time, deemed opportune to us, intercede on their behalf.  We will support no country that has as a defining point in their National Statement or

http://hereticdhammasangha.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/photo1.jpg?w=282&h=206

beliefs the destruction of Israel or any other Democracy.  Period.  We will support no Nation that has as part of it’s Constitiution

Immediately halt all support for Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq until they actually come on line with a WESTERN AGENDA as opposed to an Islamist agenda.  I would like to end all support of Islamic Countries period.  I would include the protection of their shipping on the sea lanes.  Let Iran fight it out with the Sunnis and afterward step in to pick up the pieces.  These parties would slaughter each other.    The West should precipitate such a crisis and then step in and pick up the pieces after they’ve murdered 2/3rds of each others populations.

Shariah Law.  We will support no Nation which has as part of it’s national belief system the enslavement or disenfranchisement of minorities or women.

After this, we strike out at al Qaeda wherever they surface.  If locals are killed.  It is their fault for not having rooted out al Qaeda or for having allowed al Qaeda to plant roots.

Eventually, they’ll get the message.  If al Qaeda is there, missiles will rain down in holy terror.  If no al Qaeda is there, no missiles will arrinve.

We must halt our support of terrorising despots.  We must support freedom and liberty.   We must defeat al Qaeda.

As of now, we are losing this war.  Especially when we allow them to plant their seeds of terror in our own front yard.

Obama and the US Sabre Rattling over Iranian Nukes

http://www.infidelsparadise.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/ObamaIran.jpg

Gates is sounding more belligerent these days. “I don’t think we’re prepared to even talk about containing a nuclear Iran,” he told Fox News on June 20. “We do not accept the idea of Iran having nuclear weapons.” In fact, Gates was reflecting a new reality in the military and intelligence communities. Diplomacy and economic pressure remain the preferred means to force Iran to negotiate a nuclear deal, but there isn’t much hope that’s going to happen. “Will [sanctions] deter them from their ambitions with regards to nuclear capability?” CIA Director Leon Panetta told ABC News on June 27. “Probably not.” So the military option is very much back on the table.

What has changed? “I started to rethink this last November,” a recently retired U.S. official with extensive knowledge of the issue told me. “We offered the Iranians a really generous deal, which their negotiators accepted,” he went on, referring to the offer to exchange Iran’s 1.2 tons of low-enriched uranium (3.5% pure) for higher-enriched (20%) uranium for medical research and use. “When the leadership shot that down, I began to think, Well, we made the good-faith effort to engage. What do we do now?”

But it is also possible that the saber-rattling is not a bluff, that the U.S. really won’t tolerate a nuclear Iran and is prepared to do something awful to stop it.

What’s more awful?

A nuclear Iran or someone stopping it.

If Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE want Iranian Nuke Programs stopped, why don’t they come out and straightforward ask for it.

I can see why they’re scared. Iran is more likely to use it against them than us.

Saudi could bring China on board.

We should arrange a deal. Cheap oil in exchange for a strike. Also, we should make them make peace and I mean real peace with Israel in exchange for a strike against Iran and we should make them disown Wahhabism.

1. Cheap Oil
2. Peace with Israel
3. Crush Wahhabism and become Sufi Muslim
4. They have to bring China in on it. China must invade Iran.

lol

Potentially, we have the Middle East by the balls with this Iranian thing. Only if we use it correctly.

The Muslim World

http://content.bored.com/photos/derf.jpg

I like this. Except that I don't see any of them as scary. I see those labeled as scary as folks who need to be dealt with violently. Not all, but, those who would act violently against US.

On the Muslim World

Muslims see themselves as a community. They always have and always will. The only way to stop that is to kill all of them.  Christians think of themselves as a community as well.  Christendom is a concept only recently gone out of fashion. There are mentions of Christendom from the 19th Century, I know. Europe was still speaking of Christendom until only recently. I think Churchill mentions it a few times. That was the 20th Century.  It is not a foreign concept to think in terms of a World Wide Religious or Cultural community.  We think of the West. The West is Christian. No matter how greatly this is denied by atheists and secularists within the West.  The West is merely a more secular term for Christendom.  The West is as guilty of this kind of speak as is Islam.   The difference is that we, in the West, agree with Western Culture. We don’t see it as problem and arrogantly believe that the rest of the World should be overjoyed to join us.   Muslim lands. Christan lands. During World War I and at the end of World War I, “The West” celebrated the return of the “Holy Land” to it’s rightful Christian hands by virtue of it’s capture after the defeat of the Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman Empire encompassed most of what we now speak of as the Middle East. Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Palestine, Israel, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and a few others were http://www.iranian.com/main/files/blogimages/Middle%20East%20-%20Map400.bmpall part of the now defunct Ottoman Empire. This was considered the Muslim World or the Lands of the Mohamadens (Saracens) and spoken and written about as such by Christian or “Western” writers and historians.  That some in our era do not understand the concept of Muslim lands is fairly meaningless. The Great Tides of History are against their ignorance. It’s simply that they are ignorant of the history of the region. Not their fault.  Our schools are more interested in Political Correct thought processes than learning.  If one truly desires to rail against this concept and this ideology, though, one should at least be aware of this history.  Me, I don’t care what history says about Muslim lands. Prior to the Muslims, these lands were all Western (Roman) and/or Christian.  Not that Christians ruled them justly either.

History also shows us that the most violent and war like culture wins out in the end. The winners determine the future and control history.  Except in our current era, where idiotic pacifists, socialist, multi-culturalists and self defeatists in the West want to write history based strictly upon their feelings of guilt and ignorance of history.  They remind me of mini-Pol Pot or Mao Tse Tung pretenders.  The greatest threat to the West (Christendom) is not the Muslims or even Communist China. It is the 5th Column of corrupt leftists and extreme liberals within our own borders. In order to finally defeat the Islamic threat, we will need to defeat this 5th Column by making them irrelevant.
