If you think about it, this is most heinous. A most heinous decision.

Obama swapped out five Gitmo prisoners for a guy who deserted and sought out the Taliban. The Obama Administration has constantly and consistently lied about the whole Bergdahl travesty. Bergdahl and family continue to be silent about the whole affair when before the family was consistent in their criticism of the American War on Terror.

Obama then refused to pay a ransom for a guy who was out there trying to find out the truth about ISIS and American policy in the Middle East.

Transparency, hope, change…Where are these ideals in the Obama Administration.

And please…PLEASE do not mention the ACA which was/is nothing more than a profit guarantor for Democratic and Obama Campaign contributors such as Pfizer, Humana, Aetna and other “Health,” Insurance and Pharmaceutical Industry giants.

Face it Democrats, Obama pulled the wool over your eyes. He’s George W. Bush the Democrat.

Hail Caeser! The Scum of the Universe.

Eat your bread and enjoy the Circus idiot Obama Zombies.

THE GREAT BRINGERS OF DEMOCRACY AND LIBERTY — A TALE OF BETRAYAL AND DEATH

Image

When we depart Afghanistan, we will be leaving thousands of partners who aided the US/Coalition effort.

Leaving them to their fate.

These folks, who are ALL MUSLIM, have risked their lives for meager pay. We pay them anywhere from 150.00 to 3000.00 monthly average but most make closer to 800.00USD. In the meantime, thousands of them have been beaten, threatened kidnapped and at the extreme murdered in cold blood along with their families.

I have huge problems with Islam and what I call the “Muslim mentality.” That said, these folks, all of whom are Muslim have aided in our efforts against the insurgency, al Qaeda and the Taliban. They’ve put their lives on the line for their country, for the US & Coalition and for us.

I can’t not admire that and I can’t help but feel some sense of shame for we shall abandon them just as we abandoned the Vietnamese, Lao, Khmer and, more recently, the Iraqis.

We did not have to come here. They did not have to accept us. Nonetheless, we came. We stirred up the hornet’s nest. We shall depart hailing ourselves as the Great Bringers of Democracy and Liberty.

They will stay, suffer and die. We are culpable here in the Stan just as we are for the events transpiring in Fallujah and Mosul.

David Petraeus

I knew this kid.  He works in a nan shop in Kabul right near where I was.  I bought bread from him two or three times a week.  I used to give him a Snickers bar when I bought fread.  Five of those “loaves” hanging behind Petraeus cost about 1USD (50 Afs).  Best bread in the world.

General Dan Bolger is part of “Why We Lost.”

Image

Dan Bolger and commanders such as him are “why we lost” in Afghanistan.  I witnessed the results of Dan Bolger as Commanding General in Afghanistan. He may have been personally courageous and that’s fine. His decision to ground everyone on FOBs and bases and to make us all targets by mandating all travel in MRAPs, MATVs and giant uparmored SUVs (aka Taliban Targets)  has negatively affected the mission and, in my opinion, has directly contributed to the deaths of military and civilians.

It was an ignorant decision that was based on fear or self preservation.

I worked with MPRI in Afghanistan. The whole of the time that I was with MPRI, one MPRI civilian was killed. He was traveling in a military convoy.  Since Bolger’s change, the losses have kept on coming.  Why?  Because he turned us into targets when, before, we had always been anonymous.  A decade into a war, Bolger felt that we had lost and his decision reflected that attitude.  Bolger wasn’t trying to win. He was trying to survive without hurting his career.  I wasn’t impressed and I’m still not impressed.

His decision to Fobbitize the whole of the country has caused this war to be lost. His attitude bled down to the troops. “Oh…it’s dangerous out there. We can’t do that.” It’s a war zone. Of course, it’s dangerous. You drive on and accomplish the mission.  Prior to Bolger, a great part of the force was camouflaged…concealed and could move about the country relatively unnoticed.  We blended in.   After Bolger, we all had great big huge bulls eyes on our backs.  Bolger’s defeatism led directly to his preconception that it was a losing effort becoming a reality.  He carried defeatism into the battle and left his mark.  He is one of the architects of defeat.

I’ve walked the streets of Kabul alone. And? Personal bravery. Awesome. Personal bravery doesn’t always translate to wise or courageous leadership.  George Armstrong Custer was a brave individual. He was a suicidal commander. Gen. John Hood was a courageous man. Yet, his recklessness led to massive defeat. Gen. McClellan was a courageous man. Yet, his unwillingness to commit, lack of resolve and over-caution led to his defeat and ultimate relief of command. Grant abhorred the carnage of war. Sherman lost control of his sanity temporarily over his belief of what his war would become. Yet, both men committed and led their commands to victory by using the resources at hand and taking the fight to the enemy.

Bolger was a McClellan. He stayed in command in Afghanistan 365 days too long. He is partially responsible for Why We Lost.

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?

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.

 

 

 

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.

It’s not Afghanistan.

“If you stand back,” said one American who is in the thick of the American strategy-making, “and say, by the year 2020, you’ve got two countries — 30 million people in this country, 200 million people with nuclear weapons in this country, American troops in neither. Which matters? It’s not Afghanistan.”

This article is a primer on the future of the region.  It’s a must read, if you want to understand the future of American relations in this region.

Special attention to Pakistani views of the Afghan National Security Forces.

America is not to Blame for Islamic Extremism

http://www.hyscience.com/archives/073105benson334.gif

Islamic Extremism began before America was founded. It existed in our early days.  It was there in the Barbary Pirates.  It was there before our Revolution in the Nejd being fought against by other Muslims.  It existed long before we started our foray into the World as a power of any great importance (real or imagined).

Islamic Extremism has been there since the beginning of Islam.  Islam was born in blood.  It was born extreme.  The first act of Muhammad was to use Islam as a tool to capture Mekkah and to turn the pagan shrines there into Islamic Shrines with the Ka’aba as it’s center.

What we know in the modern era as Islamic Extremism was started by al Wahhab.  Al Wahhab was a Cleric born in the late 1700s.  He assisted the Saudi Family in their ultimately successful efforts to conquer Arabia.  Afterwards, his adherents became so violent that they were put down by the Egyptians at the behest and with the approval and thanks of the Ottomans.

The Muslim Brotherhood traces it’s philosophical founding to al Wahhab.  All Islamic Terrorism groups not sponsored directly by Iran and even some of those such as Hezbollah, the Quds Force and Hamas trace their philosophical foundings and their violence back through the Muslim Brotherhood to al Wahhab.

I find it amusing when Westerners who are wholly ignorant of the history of Islam and it’s people wax poetic about how America or the West is to blame for Islamic Extremism.

http://hereticdhammasangha.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/onward20muslim20soldiers.jpg?w=191&h=293Islam began as a tiny desert cult or sect in the deserts of Arabia.  It conquered it’s way via Holy War from Central Asia and Western China to India and Indonesia to parts of Southeast Asia thorugh Asia Minor into Eastern Europe down through the Middle East and the Levant to North Africa and into the African Interior ending in Spain.

This peaceful religion then sided with the Germans in both World Wars I and II.  Syria and Egypt then sided with communism and the Soviet Union.

I suppose that is peaceful as compared to a pacifist community or two…

Currently, Islam is used to justify African Slavery, Holy Jihad and suicide bombs, Airplane Hi Jackings, Clitorectomies on young women, the chattel slavery and oppression of millions of women across the Islamic world and in the West, execution of homosexuals, honor killings of sisters, mothers and wives for the slightest of reasons.

It is a given that not all Muslims practice these things or approve of such things.  It is a given that the leadership of Islam is weak and vacillating.  Relying on oppression and duplicity to remain in power.

Yes, Christians have done ugly things as well.  That said, Christians, for the most part, are not doing these things now.

There is no mainstream movement in Christianity that calls for the Bible as Christian Law.  No mainstream movement that calls for the execution of infidels, homosexuals or women based on Christian law.

This does not exist in the West.  Not in the mainstream.

There are loons and fools a plenty.  None of them get the time of day from the majority of the Western World including adherents to the Christian faith.

The world would be better off without Islam and Christianity.  That much I believe.  Individual Christians and even smaller organizations are fine.  It is primarily the politicized and the mainstream fundamentalist Christians with whom I have a problem.  Christianity has done much harm.  The belief in Jesus of Nazareth and those who follow the actual teachings of Christ have been a great boon to the world at large.  Christianity as we know it is a perversion created by the State of Rome as a mechanism of control.  It was also used by the Monarchies of Europe to further their power and political aims.  Jesus, I believe, would not approve of what we have called Christianity for the past 1600 plus years.

We’d find others things over which to fight.

The West is not to blame for Islamic Extremism.

America is not to blame for Islamic Extremism.  It pre-dates America herself and it certainly pre-dates American Global Power.

Someone someday might successfully explain to me how something that existed before her birth is the fault of America.  As of this date, no such person has arisen.

Only fools who know nothing of history.

Not all Muslims are enemies of Liberty and Freedom.  Not all Muslims would force their brand of religion on others.  Even so, there are many Muslims who would.  Radicals are always the more powerful force in history.  Moderates will usually fight for nothing.  Pacifists will not fight.  Those who believe in nothing will not fight for their vision of life on the planet.

This is the danger of Islamic Extremism.  The radicals are willing to fight and to die for that in which they believe.  Ignore that at your own peril–as many have done before.

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.

Hedging on Guantanamo

Europe’s Hedging on Inmates Clouds Guantanamo Plans
(New York Times, March 16, 2009, Pg. 1)
 
European countries that have offered to help the Obama administration close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay have begun raising questions about the security risks and requirements if they accept prisoners described by the Bush administration as “the worst of the worst,” according to diplomats and other officials. The concerns, and a deep suspicion of whether the American intelligence community will share full information on the prisoners, are likely to complicate the resettlement effort, which is critical to President Barack Obama’s fulfilling his pledge to close Guantanamo within a year of his taking office.

EU Could Aid U.S. by Taking 60 Detainees 

(Financial Times, March 16, 2009)

Up to 60 Guantanamo Bay detainees could be taken in by European Union countries, according to the bloc’s senior justice official. Jacques Barrot, the vice-president of the EU, said Europe’s response to any U.S. request that it take former detainees would be a “test issue” ahead of a trip he is making to Washington this week. “We are open to co-operation to help close Guantanamo as long, of course, as the methods used there are not replicated in other places,” he said, adding that Washington would need to give the EU complete information on the background of the detainees sent to Europe.

U.S. Challenged on Sealing of Detainee Files
(Washington Post, March 16, 2009, Pg. 15)
 
The Justice Department has filed “unclassified” records in federal court outlining the government’s cases against more than 100 detainees at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, but the records are not being made public. The move has triggered a legal skirmish with detainees’ attorneys, who say the excessive secrecy greatly complicates their work, especially in light of looming hearings. Three news organizations have also joined the fight, saying the government is keeping valuable information from the public. The government says it wants to keep the records from public view for now as a national security precaution after it discovered classified information in the documents.

Guantanamo — If not in Federal Prisons, where?

Obama Issues Reassurances On Guantanamo Prisoners
[Kansas City Star, March 12, 2009] 

Obama Issues Reassurances On Guantanamo Prisoners [Kansas City Star, March 12, 2009] Barack Obama said that he would never put communities like Leavenworth at risk in deciding where to relocate prisoners once Guantanamo is shut down. Fort Leavenworth is one of several military prisons being talked about as a replacement for the Guantanamo detention center.

 

If President Obama is not going to put the talibs and al Qaeda prisoners of war in Federal Prisons, where will he put them?  Are they going to become a part of the stimulus package?  Will he build a new maximum security prison in South Dakota somewhere?  If he is still going to hold them and process them at his leisure, what is the difference between his policy and the Bush policy.  The name and location of the facility in which they will be held?  

This is mere eyewash.  It’s a huge lie and cover up.  Obama is turning out to be nothing more than Clinton II.  I thought the Dems voted against a Clinton in their primaries.

Guess they’re like FPOTUS Bush in that they “can’t get fooled again.”  Only they did.  As did the other voters who ushered him into office on his campaign pledge of “Hope and Change.”  Camelot II is turning out to sound a whole lot like Hope II.  The man from Hope [Arkansas].  And Change.  From Clinton to Clinton Lite.

It’s almost funny.

Closing Guantanamo



Taliban Lieutenant Is Former Detainee
[Washington Times, March 11, 2009, Pg. 2]
U.S. officials said the Taliban’s new top operations officer in southern Afghanistan is a former Guantanamo detainee. Abdullah Ghulam Rasoul was among 13 prisoners released to the Afghan government in 2007.

Guantanamo could be the future downfall of President Obama.  He has a long think ahead of him concerning what to do with all of the prisoners in Guantanamo.  If this guy was released, imagine the monsters who’ve NOT been released.

But I’m certain that they are all nice guys who are completely innocent.  Right…

On another note of Obama brilliance:

Taliban Ridicules Talks
[FNC, March 10, 2009] 
President Obama’s suggestion that he would be opened to negotiating with moderate Taliban elements in Afghanistan is being ridiculed by the Taliban. A spokesman for the group said the idea was illogical because there are no moderate Taliban.

This is interesting…lol
