Taking Off The Gloves

Sit back, put your feet up, pour a cup of coffee or open a cold one ...........Wild Thing is in the ring......

I have posted before how I felt about this, I have posted in forums, starting in 1997 when I got my first computer during the Clinton's reign of terror. I have posted about it at my website and also a few times before on my Blog. And once again I am going to say this, scream this from the rooftops and hammer it in to anyone that will listen.
Republicans STOP Kissing up to the Democrats! Stop beginning every remark on political talk shows, in interviews etc. how so and so ( a Democrat, a Terrorcrat) is your friend. STOP pointing out his or her better qualities right before you disagree with them. STOP and STOP it NOW!

By doing this you weaken your argument, you cater to them in the worst way and it never is reciprocated!

On Wednesday ( Nov.30th,2005) Ann Coulter wrote about exactly what I have been talking about for years! Her column is in regards to Democratic Rep. John Murtha , when he called for the withdrawal of American troops in the middle of the war.

"Republicans immediately leapt to action by calling Murtha a war hero, a patriot and a great American."- Ann Coulter

She also mentions this

...."I've never heard a single liberal preface attacks on Oliver North with a recitation of North's magnificent service as a Marine. And unlike Murtha, who refuses to release his medical records showing he was entitled to his two Purple Hearts, we know what North did. (These Democrat military veterans are hardly shrinking violets when it comes to citing their medals, but they get awfully squeamish when pressed for details.) "

Please read her article below at the end of my rant because she is right on target!!!

I know all the excuse as to why the Republicans do this. Yep, so many times in fact that my ears get hot just thinking about it, hot with anger! OH yes, it is because they want to try to work together, they do not want to make enemies of the left in case they want their vote on something in the future. Sheesh! How lame is that??!! Pretty darn lame if you ask me. You know the I'll scratch your back if you scrath mine thang' ! Well guess what!!! The Democrats NEVER return the back scratching! Look how they have treated President Bush since he became President. They are still angry about the chad count from the first election. They call him Mr. and NEVER President!

The Republicans and I am including our President and VP on this one, they all begin their statements ahout Murtha with what a hero he was. Ladies and gentlemen freaken evil himself, HITLER, enlisted in the German army and saw four years of front-line service during which he was wounded several times and decorated for bravery twice. Now if you think this Wild Thing would sit still for someone referring to Hitler as a War Hero, as a good man because he did a swell job in the Military you have got to be kidding.

"The Americans are not there. They're not in Baghdad. There are no troops there. Never. They're not at all."-April7,2003

I am glad when a Terrocrat ( Democrat) does not like me. It is a compliment! It means I am on the right track and getting to them. I might sit here at my computer and cry because they might have my feelings hurt, but by golly I sure as heck don't pull back and rethink my next words to them. It makes me stronger then I was before. NOW that is what I want in my politicians. NOT appeasment, NOT surrender, and sure as hell NOT patting the enemy on the back and saying............." My friend so and so".............or " He is a good man, or she is a good women and has served this counrty but we just differ on some things." Can you imagine if our VP Cheney or President Bush would have lambasted Murtha and anyone else that spoke out about bringing our troops home now. Gave them hell for it and took a stand for our troops in no uncertain terms! I mean the President is their Commander in Chief, their leader just as he is our President! Words mean something and in politics they speak volumes as to how strong a person is and what they will tolerate!

"Tolerance is a virtue of a man without convictions." -G.K.Chesterton

Think about this, our men and women serving now have their lives on the line every day, every hour they are in danger with all those IED"s and insurgents our there. And when I hear a Republican politican and he or she can't be strong and take a stand for what is right it makes me sick to see such weakness. The Terrocrats have treated President Bush and VP Cheney as though they are in THEIR White House. They have treated them in word and deed as though Bush and Cheney and the houses being in the Republican majority are squatters.

Think about this too, how many of us worked hard toward getting Bush elected both times. How many?? LOTS! And I bet you had people attacking you too when you held a sign up for Bush or our troops, or posted on forums where liberals swormed like bees waiting to attack you. But we all kept on, kept the good fight and we did it as our part to take America back from the left. WE stood strong in the face of the enemy. OK, so once we got our people elected in the Senate, Congress and White House we should be able to sit back and watch THEM fight for us and for America and for our Military. Right? Right!

Below is Ann's Coulter's column....

We like you! We really, really like you!

© 2005 Ann Coulter

When Democratic Rep. John Murtha called for the withdrawal of American troops in the middle of the war, Republicans immediately leapt to action by calling Murtha a war hero, a patriot and a great American.

I haven't heard Republicans issue this many encomiums to one man since Ronald Reagan died. By now, Murtha has been transformed into the greatest warrior since Alexander the Great and is probably dating Jennifer Aniston.

In response to Murtha's demand for the "immediate withdrawal of American troops" – as the New York Times put it – President Bush called Murtha a "fine man, a good man" who served with "honor and distinction," who "is a strong supporter of the United States military." He said he knew Murtha's "decision to call for an immediate withdrawal of our troops ... was done in a careful and thoughtful way."

Vice President Dick Cheney called Murtha "a good man, a Marine, a patriot."

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Murtha is "a fine man, I know him personally ... and it's perfectly proper to have a debate over these things, and have a public debate."

National Security Adviser Steve Hadley called in his praise for Murtha from South Korea, saying Murtha was "a veteran, a veteran congressman and a great leader in the Congress."

During the House debate on Murtha's insane proposal to withdraw troops in the middle of the war, Rep. Henry Hyde, R-Ill., said Murtha deserved an "A-plus as a truly great American," and Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., said "none of us should think of questioning his motives or desires for American troops."

On the House floor, both Republicans and Democrats repeatedly gave Murtha rousing standing ovations. There was so much praise for Murtha that one of his Democratic colleagues asked him if he still had to attend Murtha's funeral.

What is this? Special Olympics for the Democrats? Can't Republicans disagree with a Democrat who demands that the U.S. surrender in the middle of a war without erecting monuments to him first? What would happen if a Democrat were to propose restoring Saddam Hussein to power? Is that Medal of Freedom territory?

I don't know what Republicans imagine they're getting out of all this love they keep throwing at Democrats. I've never heard a single liberal preface attacks on Oliver North with a recitation of North's magnificent service as a Marine. And unlike Murtha, who refuses to release his medical records showing he was entitled to his two Purple Hearts, we know what North did. (These Democrat military veterans are hardly shrinking violets when it comes to citing their medals, but they get awfully squeamish when pressed for details.)

We also know what Rep. Randy Cunningham, R-Calif., did to earn his medals. One of only two American Navy aces that the Vietnam War produced, Cunningham shot down five MiGs, three in one day, including a North Vietnamese pilot with 13 American kills. Cunningham never did something as insane as proposing that we withdraw troops in the middle of a war, but this week he did admit to taking bribes.

And yet, no Democrat breathed a word of Cunningham's unquestioned heroism before rushing to denounce him as "the latest example of the culture of corruption" – in the words of Rep. Nancy Pelosi.

Sen. Teddy Kennedy didn't issue a 20-minute soliloquy on what a wonderful man Judge Robert Bork was as a human being before attacking his judicial philosophy. Kennedy just laid into Bork like he was George Lincoln Rockwell.

Speaking of which, George Lincoln Rockwell, former head of the American Nazi Party, served in the military during World War II. Are we obligated to praise his war service before disputing his views?

CNN's Bill Schneider summarized the Republican love-fest for Murtha by saying that House Republicans "started calling him some very ugly names – cowardly, shameful, he wanted to cut and run, he wanted to surrender to the terrorists, emboldening the enemy." Are we all looking at the same "intelligence"?

The only Republican congressman who did not offer to have sex with John Murtha on the House floor was Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio. While debating Murtha's own proposal to withdraw American troops from Iraq in the middle of a war waged to depose a monstrous dictator who posed a threat to American national security, Schmidt made the indisputably true remark that Marines don't cut and run. (She was right! Murtha voted against his own proposal.)

Schmidt's precise words were: "I received a call from Col. Danny Bubp. He also asked me to send Congressman Murtha a message, that cowards cut and run, Marines never do." Bubp later said – pointlessly – that he was not calling Murtha a coward. Neither was Jean Schmidt. (These guys are very brave facing down the VC, but cower before the MSM.)

Now Schmidt is Emmanuel Goldstein, subjected to the liberals' Orwellian two-minutes hate, and not one Republican will defend her. If Republicans were one-tenth as rough with the congressman who wants to withdraw troops in the middle of a war as they are on a congresswoman who calls it cowardly to withdraw troops in the middle of a war, we might have a functioning Republican Party.

The Vile Left Still Attacking Grey Eagle!

Wild Thing commnet.......She is a wife, a mother, a soldier. She is fighting for you, for me, for America, for the Iraq's to know freedom too, and God help us she is even fighting for the low life scum the LEFTIES that are attacking her. She is one of America's Heroes and I feel so fortunate that I can go to her blog and post to her that I am grateful to her. The left should be hung for what they are dolng to her, to so many of our troops. It angers me so much I can hardly type this. I will never forget what the left has been doing to our troops and has always done to our Military. Every death of one of our Military I blame also on the left. They are helping the enemy and they have always helped the enemy.

Thank you to Mr. Right, Cao and others that are making sure everyone knows about this horror being done to one of our own.


It was brought to my attention that my polls had been changed. When I went there, I was completely shocked by all the questions. Once again, it was originally designed to offer a voice in things. And once again it was abused. Do you people think that this is cute, or just hell-bent on trying to get me into trouble? Did I do something so offensive to you personally that you feel the need to attack me in such a personal way? Currently someone has offered to completely redesign this website with built in security. I cannot tell you how happy I am with that. To finally have a website where I can post my stories, and have visitors who do not have to contend with your hacks on soldier's tributes, insulting people with changing the polls, and the many other things you have done to this website. I know that this isn't the most secure website, I didn't realize that it was going be such a requirement when I designed it. I was obviously wrong. I wish to personally say I am sorry to anyone who has had to read or endure the messages or polls that may have been offensive on this website. You will note that the units have been removed from the menu in addition to the polls for the same security reasons. As upset and humilitaed as I am, I am not going to quit. I am not going to abandon this project, or terminate the website. I will learn, improve, adapt, and overcome your childish attacks. I should have known as soon as I saw that you were coming back out of hiding to resume posting your hateful and spiteful comments that something like this would occur.

I will hope and pray this will be the last time I have to post another message like this. But if not, know that I will not be defeated. I will not let your emails refering to me as a "baby killer", your calls for me to walk away from my duties, your questioning of my loyality to this county discourage me. I will not let your small minded attacks to my website deny me my voice, I have earned that right. And I will not continue to allow you to insult the visitors who come to this website to read or learn about life here. This is not a political website so please refrain from making it one. I will begin to delete your comments, I will backup this website so as to overcome your attacks, and I will await the completion of the new website.

Thank you 101st Airborne Division and Grey Eagle!! Please everyone, before you do anything else today, go tell Gray Eagle hi and post to her.

He Should Be Home For Christmas - But They Won't Let Him

Ted Kavanau is a veteran television news executive, was one of the founders of CNN and created CNN's Headline News. He has served in news managerial capacities at TV stations in New York, Oakland, Calif., and San Diego. He discovered Katie Couric, and groomed several of the newscasters we see on news shows today.

Wild Thing comment......
I realize Katie Couric is a piece of crap and I can't stand her but these are the facts and unlike the MSM I will not keep information from a post I make. I put it all out there for you to see and know. Heck I hired some real winners ( UGH) in my business too over the years.....OK BACK to the rest of my post.

Ted Kavanau left this comment on the Brent Bennett post the other day. Here it is.

Americans should understand the stake they have in helping free Jack, Brent and Ed and put back in action his team of terrorist hunting Afghans. Very recent history makes the case ever more sharply. Following the three bombings of American-owned Hotels in Jordan there was again a lot of chatter by pundits on TV here about how vulnerable we are in the US. Was that vulnerablity a surprise to anybody? Did it really take a horrific event to happen before we again fall back into enjoying our pleasant lifesyles? It is ironic that the attack in Jordan comes one day after the British Parliament voted down Tony Blair's proposal to triple the number of days a suspected terrorist can be held in a British prison. I hear the British press is calling for Tony Blair to resign after his defeat. I think it is time for the British Parliament members who voted against him to resign. Here in the US the Democrats, after a few electoral victories in Governor races, are smelling Bush weakness and again getting aggressive about our not yet finding Bin Laden (as well their other complaints about the war in Iraq). The Republicans are playing into the hands not only of their political enemies, but of their terrorist enemies by not unleashing one of the best weapons they have against Al Qaeda and its followers, namely Jack Idema, Brent Bennett and the Afghans warriors of Saber7. If Idema and the others had not been arrested, there was good reason (you can read all about it on to believe Idema would have captured Bin Laden.

Let's hope that with the new Afghan Parliament Idema and Saber7 will again have the opportunity to go hunt terrorists and keep us all a lot safer. That's the stake we all have in what happens to Idema and his team and that is why his story is so worthy of our attention and our action.

Help us put pressure on our elected representatives and ask them why these men have not been released--since they were declared innocent at the end of March, 2005 and the only reason they're still being held at Pulacharke is because the US Government has ordered it.

When all was said and done, these people admitted that no torture occurred, and 5 Afghan Supreme Court Justices decleared them innocent of all charges. Yet, the American government won't allow them to be released. The question is...why?

What I don't understand is why Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, the Red Cross and all those "watch groups" haven't raised any hell in this case. I haven't heard the human rights activists complaining about THESE injustices, why would that be? Could it be that the only people they are supporting in terms of human rights violations are the terrorists and not our soldiers and the men who are defending us in this war?

Idema was tortured with boiling water, starvation, threats of death, and assault with various implements (such as wire cables and rubber whips), resulting in broken ribs, a separated sternum, torn rotator cuffs, hemorrhaged eyes, multiple concussions, lacerations, contusions, and bruises. Although the U.S. Embassy later had medical reports indicating the extent of the torture, Sandra Ingram, Assistant U.S. Consul DOS Kabul, ordered the reports rewritten to tone down the extent of the injuries.

And let's not forget how they were treated at Thanksgiving:

Thanksgiving for Jack Idema, Captain Bennett, Lt Banderas, and Journalist Carabello went like this: Ten US Special Operations Soldiers were threatened by the Dept of State with Article 15's (low level court martials) if they brought Turkey to Pulacharke Prison on Thanksgiving.

If that's not enough,

US Consul Addie Harchick visted them, refused them mail, and then tried to drive away with the water the Marines sent them, until an Afghan General had his bodyguards block the Embassy car and force them to deliver the water. One of the State Dept Security officers told the story at bar last night, and it made the boys sitting there listening f***ing sick. We treated Nazi POWs better than this.

Now denying them water might not seem to be a big deal, but it really is and this is part of the reason why.

Without water, they will be forced to drink local water which contains microorganisms and bacteria fatal to American citizens and forces in Central West Asia. Although ciprofloxacin can be administered to combat the severe dysentery, vomiting, and eventually death* that will occur as the result of the denial of drinking water, two problems make this solution untenable. First, ciprofloxacin is not readily available, the US Embassy has already refused to supply drugs to them, and the FBI confiscated the medical and surgical kits they possessed to avoid any link to the United States government.** Second, because Idema has operated in Afghanistan for more than three years, he has already used ciprofloxacin extensively and is not a suitable candidate for continued long-term use. The same situation would apply to Bennett and Caraballo if they were to be forced into long-term use of ciprofloxacin. Therefore, the denial of water is not only completely retaliatory and nefarious, but brutally vindictive and unwarranted.

Something's terribly wrong here, and part if it has to do with the leftists who are supporting the rights of the enemy versus truly supporting our troops and the people who are fighting the WOT on our behalf.

We should make it clear that we know what has gone on here and that it's an outrage and all men from TF Sabre/7 should be released, exonerated, their names cleared. And we should be also pushing for a Congressional investigation as to who was involved, the how and the why. Nobody fighting in Afghanistan or Iraq should EVER have to worry about being hung out to dry like this by a government that is employing stalinist tactics and turning its back on all the freedoms and rights that have been provided and guaranteed us by our founding documents and the blood of our forefathers, many of whom are laying at Arlington cemetary--as well as old standards which all men in uniform think they have as safeguards such as the Geneva Conventions. Are we to apply the Geneva Conventions to terrorists to whom these safeguards don't apply and ignore them for our men in uniform for whom they were written???

If so, we're setting ourselves up for FAILURE in this TERROR WAR.

This is the "Free Jack" campaign.

To join the campaign, email Cao of Cao's Blog and tell her you want to join the Free Jack Idema blogburst. You will be added to the blogroll and she'll send you the html code to put up for that week in case you're pressed for time and can't put something together...or you can write your own.

We will be blogging on this every Wednesday until he and his team are released, and when they are, we'll be blogging about a congressional hearing.

Cao will maintain an email list, and will email you the post of the week along with a picture (if there is one for that week) to host at your blog.

Join the fight. No American should ever have to worry about ending up in this predicament ever again. But first, we must make sure they get home safely and in one piece.

To My Heroes - You Live In My Heart- I Will Never Forget!

The Chosin

With winter coming and maybe even already here in some States. With winter coming to Iraq and Afghanistan where so many of our troops are located. I was thinking of the well-known campaigns in the Korean War that took place in the Chosin Reservoir area of North Korea. Of all the wars where our Military had to fight in cold, unbearable cold weather, and then the sizzling humid heat of that our Vietnam Vets had to endure.

Today I received a letter from one of our solders in Baghdad. It was as though I had received a Christmas present early to get this letter today. His note inside was very kind and thanking me from his heart for my support. Can you imagine he was thanking me, I am no one special, he is the one that is over there and I am the one thanking him and all of our troops. I honestly can't remember one day that has gone by that I do not think about our Veterans or our Troops. In war time or peace I can never forget.

I would like to share these two videos with you. They are both very special. One is about Thanking our Troops.

Thank you Troops

And this one is about thanking not only our troops but our Veterans as well. In the song it says, "take a pittance, a pittance of time to never forget".........

Pittance of Time

They BOTH are awesome and I needed a lot of Kleenex for each of them. Turn up the volume and watch the videos. The music is great too!!!!

United Kingdom Or Is It United Ummah

Giant mosque for 40,000 may be built at London Olympics

Times online has this story

A MASSIVE mosque that will hold 40,000 worshippers is being proposed beside the Olympic complex in London to be opened in time for the 2012 Games.

The project’s backers hope the mosque and its surrounding buildings would hold a total of 70,000 people, only 10,000 fewer than the Olympic stadium.

Its futuristic design features wind turbines instead of the traditional minarets, while a translucent latticed roof would replace the domes seen on most mosques. The complex is designed to become the “Muslim quarter” for the Games, acting as a hub for Islamic competitors and spectators.

“It will be something never seen before in this country. It is a mosque for the future as part of the British landscape,” said Abdul Khalique, a senior member of Tablighi Jamaat, a worldwide Islamic missionary group that is proposing the mosque as its new UK headquarters.

Tablighi Jamaat has come under scrutiny from western security agencies since 9/11. Two years ago, according to The New York Times, a senior FBI anti-terrorism official claimed it was a recruiting ground for Al-Qaeda. British police investigated a report that Mohammad Sidique Khan, leader of the July 7 London bombers, had attended its present headquarters in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. In August, Bavaria expelled three members of the organisation on the grounds that it promoted Islamic extremism.

Defenders of Tablighi Jamaat say that it is not political and confines itself to humanitarian work. It was founded in India under the British Raj and has many members in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The east London complex would have by far the largest capacity of any religious building in Britain. The biggest at present is the Baitul Futuh in Morden, Surrey, which holds about 10,000 worshippers. Liverpool’s Anglican cathedral, the largest Christian place of worship, has a capacity of 3,000.

The new building will be called the London Markaz (Arabic for centre) and will be built in place of an existing mosque on a 10-acre site 500 yards from the Olympic development.

The three-storey mosque will be designed to accommodate more than 40,000 worshippers. Its sweeping roof is intended to evoke tented cities.
The complex would include a garden, school, library and accommodation for visiting worshippers.

Islamic calligraphy would cover the walls and ceilings, the washing areas would have cascading water to mimic a stream, and the complex’s buildings would be adapted to allow extra worshippers during festivals such as Eid, accommodating a further 30,000 visitors.

Ali Mangera, the London and Barcelona-based architect who is designing the mosque, said: “People in this country build mosques with fake domes and plastic minarets to look like the mosques back home. Islam has traditionally been at the forefront of technology and change. The Markaz will reflect this. It will be more than a mosque. The whole idea behind it is to break down barriers.”

Mangera has previously worked with leading British architects including Zaha Hadid, designer of the Cardiff opera house. Mangera and Tablighi Jamaat are in negotiations with Newham council, the Greater London Authority and the Thames Gateway Development Corporation for planning permission.

Sunil Sahadevan, a planning officer at Newham council, said: “We are working towards the mosque application with the organisers and discussions are ongoing. The application will be finalised over the next year.”

It is estimated that the project would cost more than £100m and donations are being sought from Britain and abroad.


Wild Thing's comment................

Well isn't that just so special, I guess they don't want the Muslims to have to walk to far to go to the games. Do you think they will also install the suicide bomb vending machines prior to the Games?

Well we are not that far off from something like that here.............

From NY Newsday

The New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority says it will provide a special area for anyone who wants a place to pray while at Giants Stadium or the Continental Airlines Arena _ a reaction to Muslim groups' outcries after several fans who prayed at a New York Giants game were detained and questioned by the FBI in September.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi police arrested eight Sunni Arabs in the northern city of Kirkuk for allegedly plotting to assassinate the investigating judge who prepared the case against Saddam Hussein, a senior police commander said Sunday. The announcement came as former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark arrived in Baghdad, airport officials said, apparently to aid in Saddam's defense.

Clark has been advising nearly a dozen international lawyers on Saddam's defense team. He has contended that Saddam's rights have been violated in the legal process following his capture. But a U.S. government official close to the court said the defense team had not filed the proper paperwork to have a non-Iraqi lawyer in the courtroom.

The men who were arrested for plotting to kill the judge were carrying a document from former top Saddam deputy Izzat al-Douri ordering them to kill Raed Juhi, said Col. Anwar Qadir, a police commander in Kirkuk, where the men were arrested Saturday.

Al-Douri is the highest ranking member of the Saddam regime still at large and is believed to be at least the symbolic leader of Saddam loyalists still fighting U.S. forces and the new government in Iraq.

The arrest came two days before Saddam's trial resumes after a five-week break.

The first prosecution witnesses are expected to testify before the five-judge panel, offering accounts of the deaths of more than 140 Shiite villagers following an assassination attempt against Saddam in the town of Dujail in 1982.

If convicted, Saddam and his seven co-defendants could be sentenced to death by hanging.

Security concerns prompted the defense team to threaten a boycott of Monday's session after two members were slain in separate attacks after the trial opened Oct. 19. The U.S. official, who requested anonymity in return for providing the information, also said no request by a member of the defense team for security has been denied.

Attorneys for each defendant agreed to appear Monday, and the trial is expected to proceed as scheduled, the official added.

The chief trial judge said in remarks released Sunday in Germany that he has considered whether the court should move to Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq because of poor security in the capital.

"So far, the situation allows regular and fair proceedings of the court, even if the conditions are admittedly difficult," Rizgar Mohammed Amin was quoted as saying in the German news weekly Focus.

"I have already thought about whether one shouldn't move the court to the Kurdish areas, where the situation is quieter and more security would be assured."

The interview will be published Monday.

On Saturday, a U.S. Marine died when his vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb near Camp Taqaddum, 45 miles west of Baghdad, the U.S. command said. A statement said the Marine was assigned to the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing.

The latest death raised the number of U.S. service members to die since the Iraq war started in March 2003 to at least 2,106, according to an Associated Press count.

Before dawn Sunday, about 350 Iraqi soldiers in 50 vehicles carried out an operation in a Sunni Muslim area south of Baqouba, 35 miles northeast of Baghdad. A similar operation two weeks ago brought national protests from Sunni leaders.

Iraqi army Maj. Karim Al-Zihayri said 15 people were arrested on suspicion of planting roadside bombs, attacking checkpoints, kidnapping and theft. The troops did not meet any resistance, he added.

U.S. and Iraqi officials have warned of an increase in insurgent attacks ahead of the Dec. 15 elections, in which voters will choose the first fully constitutional parliament since Saddam's regime was ousted in April 2003.

American authorities hope for a big Sunni Arab turnout, which could produce a government that would win the trust of the religious community that forms the backbone of the insurgency.

President Jalal Talabani said Sunday that insurgent groups have responded to his call for talks and have contacted his office.

"We are receiving calls from groups who claim to be from the resistance and they are expressing their support for meetings" with the government, Talabani told reporters. "We want to convince every sincere Iraqi who is carrying arms to come and participate in the political process."

Talabani did not name the groups that contacted his office, but residents of Anbar province said Thursday that four insurgent groups active in that area are conferring among themselves to choose a representative to meet government officials.

In an interview published in London on Sunday, former interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi told The Observer newspaper that human rights abuses in Iraq are now as bad as they were under Saddam.

"People are doing the same as Saddam's time and worse," he was quoted as saying. "It is an appropriate comparison."

Allawi accused fellow Shiites in the government of being responsible for death squads and secret torture centers.

"These were the precise reasons that we fought Saddam and now we are seeing the same thing," the newspaper quoted him as saying.

For months, Sunni Arabs have been accusing the Interior Ministry of wholesale arrests and abuse of Sunnis in an attempt to find a handful of rebels. The discovery by U.S. troops this month of up to 173 detainees _ malnourished and some showing signs of torture _ hidden in an Interior Ministry building in central Baghdad gave credence to those charges.

The Iraqi government has set up a committee that is investigating the case, but Talabani told reporters Sunday he did not believe there was a serious problem.

"I believe there is exaggeration, but every incident should be investigated," he said.

In Baghdad on Sunday, a group of women protested outside the Interior Ministry building, demanding information about relatives taken by security forces and never heard from again.

"What have they done wrong?" asked one woman, who identified herself only as Um Nabeel. "Let the government tell us where they are. If they were killed let them tell us where their bodies are."

Where There's Smoke There's Muslims

Linking Islam to terror 'will divide civilisations' this was the headline in one of the articles at Gulf News

More on the article is also found at Jihad Watch

Bahrain yesterday warned that associating Islam with terrorism would be a devastating blow to humanity and would deepen the abyss between civilisations.

"Islam is a tolerant and peaceful religion and it is the identity of many nations and peoples. Associating this religion with terrorism amounts to accusing whole nations of supporting it and, eventually, playing into the hands of radicals and extremists. Such a stance is a grave mistake that annihilates understanding between peoples," Shura (upper) Council Chairman Dr Faisal Al Mousawi said at the opening of the international conference in Manama between Bahrain's parliament and the Group of the European People's Party (Christian Democrats) and European Democrats.

And this quote taken from the rest of the article further down..................

Such a stance is a grave mistake that annihilates understanding between peoples," Shura (upper) Council Chairman Dr Faisal Al Mousawi said at the opening of the international conference in Manama

Wild Thing's comment.......
Everyone knows that the Muslims have spread their religion by the sword! Islam's Muhammad, the man that started the cult of pedophilia, murder and theft, beating of women and the list goes on and on. He was immoral, a criminal, and violent. He was a thief, liar, assassin, mass murderer, terrorist, warmonger, and an unrestrained sexual pervert engaged in pedophilia, incest, and rape. He authorized deception, assassinations, torture, slavery, and genocide. He was a pirate, not a prophet. According to the Hadith and the Qur’an, Muhammad and his henchmen plundered their way to power and prosperity.

And by putting the Qur’an in chronological order and correlating it with the context of Muhammad’s life as it was reported in the Sira, Sunnah and Hadith, we also find that Allah mirrored his prophet’s character. Muhammad’s god condoned immoral and criminal behavior. Allah boasts about being a terrorist. He claims to have deceived men, to have stolen their property, to have enslaved women and children, to having committed acts of murder, genocide, and sadistic tortures.

Islam a religion of Peace? I think NOT!

Good grief....."devastating blow to humanity"?????? Excuse me but those delivering the BLOW to humanity are those that follow Islam. sheesh
..."and would deepen the abyss between civilisations".........but wait civilizations, doesn't that have the word civilized in it?? What the hell is civilized about Islam. I mean really, I am dead on serious here.
..."annihilates understanding between peoples"....Islam has annihilated the rest of the world, it has kept Jews out of Saudia Arbia, it speaks of hate and killing of the Saturday people ( the Jews) and the Sunday people ( the Christians). What an oxymoron! Since when IS barbarism called civilization? Islam is an anti-civilization cult par excellence. It destroyed every civilization it touched and brought misery, poverty, ignorance and war in every country that it invaded!

I think ole Al Mousawi has not been in contact with the likes of some of the KLAN such as Abu Mus’ab al Zarqawi, Osama Bin Laden, Osama Bin Laden's lieutenant Ayman al-Zawahri, Hizbullah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah
(remember how he lead the call in destroying the USA and Israel), Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, Iran leader and terrorist President-Elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Hell they are all radical and should be taken out ! 90%-95% of all the conflicts on this planet today involve Muslims fighting NON-Muslims or each other!!!

Hassan Nasrallah:"How can death become joyous? How can death become happiness? When Al-Hussein asked his nephew Al-Qassem, when he had not yet reached puberty: 'How do you like the taste of death, son?' He answered that it was sweeter than honey. How can the foul taste of death become sweeter than honey? Only through conviction, ideology, and faith, through belief, and devotion. We are not interested in our own personal security. On the contrary, each of us lives his days and nights hoping more than anything to be killed for the sake of Allah."

"We don't make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians, innocents and non-innocents. Only between Muslims and unbelievers. And the life of an unbeliever has no value. It has no sanctity." - Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad
"We are not fighting so that you will offer us something. We are fighting to eliminate you." - Hussein Massawi, former leader of Hezbollah

Islam leaders and the list is long of the followers that have interpreted this verse literally!!! There are over a hundred passages in the Qur'an, includng all of Sura.

Just a few verses of the Qur'an as proof of what Islam is about........

Sura (chapter) 47 contains the ayah (verse):
"When you encounter the unbelievers on the
battlefield, strike off their heads until you have
crushed them completely; then bind the prisoners tightly."

Qur’an 8:12 “I shall terrorize the infidels.
So wound their bodies and incapacitate them
because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”

See my Terrorist page at my web site for more verses and quotes.

"History has indicated that terrorism has used false ideologies and misused religious creeds to explain and perpetuate itself. We need to highlight that terrorism is not linked to religion and must not be associated with any particular civilisation, culture or traditions," Al Mousawi said.

He called for broadening meaningful dialogue with European parliamentarians in order to achieve significant rapprochements and help overcome harmful prejudices and bias. "We believe that dialogue serves the higher interests of our nations and we should seize opportunities to forge closer and broader relations with one another and cooperation in the economic, cultural and humanitarian areas," he said.

"The dialogue should at a later stage be extended to include the Gulf Cooperation Council [GCC] states," said Al Mousawi.

Bahrain hopes that direct and steady communication with MPs in Europe will contribute to solving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and achieving a fair and lasting peace in the region, the chairman said.

The Group of the European People's Party (Christian Democrats) and European Democrats, founded in 1953, is the largest political Group in the European Parliament with 267 members from all 25 member states.

Following the September 11, 2001 attacks on the US and the wave of terrorist acts in several cities in Europe, Africa and Asia, Muslim nations have been struggling to refute claims of supporting terrorism and to clarify Islam's genuine precepts.

GCC Secretary-General Abdul Rahman Al Attiyah said that dialogues between the Arab and European blocs should be conducted in a spirit of togetherness and compassion. "A dialogue that stems from a derogatory platform will not take us far. We need to move forward together towards a partnership where cultural acceptance and tolerance and a strong commitment to fighting discrimination are the driving values," Al Attiyah said.

The GCC official said that the real threat to people in the GCC and Europe was terrorism.

The conference concludes today.

Fear of Muslims Being Upset By Christmas Lights & Christ in Christmas

The Lambeth Council in London will no longer be putting up 'Christmas' lights. Instead, they will be called 'winter lights'.

The festive season is not yet upon us, but Christmas has already been banned from some seasonal light displays.The latest local authority to take the Christ out of Christmas is Lambeth in South London, where bureaucrats in all but one district are making sure their seasonal lights are bereft of any connotation of Christianity. Instead, council officials have used the words “Winter Lights” and “Celebrity Lights”.

The crusade against CHRISTmas lights continues in the City of Portsmouth.

Same lights, but don't mention Christmas
HAVANT Council has renamed its Christmas lights as the Festival of Lights in a bid not to offend religious groups.
Shoppers, traders and community leaders said Havant was now becoming the 'scrooge town of the south'.
The decision comes after Father Christmas and his grotto was booted out of the Meridian Centre in West Street over health and safety fears.
But council leader David Gillett said: 'It's Christmas and these are Christmas lights. I don't see any sense in denying this.
'I can't for the life of me see why people would be offended by this and, to be honest, I don't think anyone is.'
The lights cost more than £5,000 this year and have been funded by the council and the Havant Business Group.
The display will be the same as last year and will still feature a Christmas tree with shoppers and families invited to carol singing, a Christmas market and other festive events.
Town centre manager Gail Grant, who oversaw the whole project, was unavailable for comment and Dawn Baxendale, director of community services at the council, refused to comment on how and why the decision was made.

Wild Thing's comment.....
Excuzzzzee me but Christmas is NOT a Muslim holiday the last time I checked. A-hem the name of the holiday is CHRISTmas NOT Winter Holiday or any other name. Will this kissing up to Muslims come to our shores as it has Britain??? I have steam coming out of my ears. When it gets to the stage where local councils (as in England) start banning mention of words like 'Christmas' because it *might* offend people of other religions then that is a step too far. Christmas is the celebration of CHRIST's birth and yes it is to celebrate the act of giving and sacrifice... but of CHRIST for us.

At the same time as our Christmas there is also a very special Jewish Holiday of Hanukkah. Will that be next, will that be somehow changed too in case it MIGHT offend another religion and a so-called religion of peace at that, the one called Islam???? Hanukkah is a festive holiday that celebrates a great victory for freedom. The liberation of Jerusalem and a miracle witnessed in the holy Temple 2,000 years ago. For eight days the oil burned, and the light of freedom still burns in Jewish homes and synagogues everywhere.

It is interesting and maddening to see that even if the Muslims have not demanded the name to be changed City's are doing it "just in case". Now don't you think this is wrong? Don't you see that living in fear of what might happen only gives more credibility to the Muslims and their desire to take control? It is PC to the Max! Councils etc. are taking political correctness way too far. When traveling to other countries it was one of the things to take note of, the differences in cultures. I as an America would never dream of visiting another country knowing the difference in cultures and then attacking it. If it were not to my liking I probably would not be going to that country in the first place except in wartime to visit the troops. And even then I would never tell that country how to be like America for their holidays.

And what gets me too about all of this is that they say it is being done not to upset those with other cultures. Why not at least be honest about the WHY of it. Good grief, is being honest so hard to do? They fear of being attacked, they fear more riots and that is why this is being done. And the worst part is that if this happens here it will be lead by the freaken ACLU (all communists Love Us). The ACLU has already done this by not wanting religious symbols on public property.

Bomber Bloodies U.S. Troops Toy Giveaway & a Hospital

Bomber Bloodies U.S. Toy Giveaway

BAGHDAD, Nov. 24 -- A suicide attacker steered a car packed with explosives toward U.S. soldiers giving away toys to children outside a hospital in central Iraq on Thursday, killing at least 31 people. Almost all of the victims were women and children, police said.

U.S. military helicopters ferried the top U.S. officer in Iraq, Army Gen. George W. Casey Jr., from base to base so he could deliver Thanksgiving greetings and encouragement.

Also mentioned here:

The vile death seeking terrorists also targeted and bombed a civilian hospital in Mahmoudiya that is 20 miles south of Baghdad.

Wild Thing comment....
These so called human beings, the terrorists have such a hate that even children cannot soften their evil hearts. Our troops have to go through so much, and a lot that even at their blogs they cannot discuss or share with us. My biggest hope and prayer is that they always know 1000% that we are for them. That we are so very proud of them and we do realize the sacrifices they make for us, for America, and for the world. There are several Dems in each of the two offices where I work and I keep reminding them that our troops are fighting for them too. I will NEVER let a leftie in my presence off the hook with their BS.
And to our Troops...........always know we way out number the sicko lefties.

Natural Born Liars

Democrats Speak Out on WMD

Carl Limbacher for NewsMax
Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2005

Perhaps Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) should have done some research before charging the Bush administration with "manufacturing” and "manipulating” pre-war intelligence relating to Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction programs.

In particular, Reid should have researched statements made by several prominent members of his own Democratic Party.

Republicans have circulated numerous pre-war Democratic statements on weapons of mass destruction since Reid blurred the line between the claims of the Democratic Party and the slanders of Michael Moore. Reid on Nov. 1 invoked Rule 21, accusing the Bush administration of purposely misleading the public in the run-up to the Iraq war.

Bottom Line: If the Bush administration was lying about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, then so too were many leading Democrats.

The following is a list of statements made by prominent Democrats on Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction program:

Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.)
"According to the CIA's report, all U.S. intelligence experts agree that Iraq is seeking nuclear weapons. There is little question that Saddam Hussein wants to develop nuclear weapons."

Wild Thing's comment......I am putting my comment here as the article is long so click below to read the article............thank you......
OK so here is one of the many things I just don't get about these Terrorcrats ( the left, the liberals, the Democrats) they make statements, big statements, statements regarding world affairs and the security of our country statements. It gets them on talk shows, in the media, it keeps them in the news, up front and personal. They are relied upon by their own sheep that follow every word spoken by these terrorcrats.Oh so and so said it so it must be true. Note here that most of the sheep do not follow every day news of what is happening in the world such as the many graves Saddam had, the torture he did to his people pretty much goes unnoticed by the sheep because it has nothing to do with the last reading at Barnes Noble or hanging our at a coffee house and trying to sound intellectual to another sheep nodding in agreement how the world is coming to an end if something isn't done about global warming and that one kind of bird that needs to be protected from the evil lumberjacks that want to keep a clearings in State Parks to make it possible fight forest fires.
They pay no attention at all to the numerous times the idiot Cheif UN weapons inspector Hans Blix went back and forth to Iraq giving Saddam enough time not only to move the WMD but to get rid of all the sand and replace it with sod and landscape the entire country of Iraq.

Take a look further down in the article of the DATES of the quotes by chia pet hair President Clinton. The sheep would sit by their TV sets, glazed over eyes and brain dead and nod in agreement, oh yes this man is dangerous, this Saddam. Just listen because President Clinton said so. The truth is Saddam is and was dangerous, not only to his neighboring countries but to the world. His payments to suicide bombers families and I firmly believe he did have a connection to Osama, but that is my opinion and gut feeling. Funny thing some of the things were true that the Dems said under Clinton about Saddam.

But here is the kicker, here is what I will never get.............Only because the President is a Republican that went after Saddam, only because he took action where his predecessor wimped out, the left cannot stand the truth now. Their hate for Republicans, and for President Bush is beyond the pale. It is so deep it is part of their DNA much like the actual terrorists hate all NON-Muslims and want us dead. Thus now WMD has become a lie, the sheep and their leaders have conveniently forgotten their quotes, their agreement with one another that WMD did exist! Even when faced with past quotes they will not answer to it, they will not respond to " but you said this blah blah blah back in such and such".

If a person says something, believes in it or does something they believe in then said person needs to own up to it. But the terrorcrats are such natural born liars they feel no guilt at all in feeling accountable for their remarks or deeds. Men(?) like Harry Reid and others have NO emotion of wrong doing when they lie. They could stand outside your front door in a blizzard and tell you that the sun is shinning and it is 80 degrees outside and the sheep would say " get the swimsuits out Velma we are going to the beach". You and I would stand on the other side of the door and tell Reid he is a freaken liar and to stand back he has a 38 aimed at his Pa Kettle face! ( Maybe not that drastic but you get my drift. hahaha)

I just don't get how a person can believe the lies of the left when they are so blatant. I am 5'11" and it would be as though I would stand next to someone 5' tall and tell them we are the same height and the person would say " I noticed that too". Sheesh! Helloooo is anyone home?

I think this is one of my biggest pet peeves with the left, one of many. The way they lie right in our faces and we are supposed to take it, to accept it. Then the media joins in with promoting their lies and their spin. Like Rush Limbaugh has said many times, the left are given their spin for the week and it is true, we can hear the same spin somehow brought in to every interview by various lefties for that week. One would have to be totally deaf and Non Compos Mentis not to notice.

The following is a list of statements made by prominent Democrats on Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction program:

Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.)
"According to the CIA's report, all U.S. intelligence experts agree that Iraq is seeking nuclear weapons. There is little question that Saddam Hussein wants to develop nuclear weapons."

Congressional Record, October 9, 2002
Senator Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.)
In the four years since the inspectors, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capability to wage biological and chemical warfare and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."

Congressional Record, October 10, 2002
Senator Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.)
"[It] is Hussein's vigorous pursuit of biological, chemical and nuclear weapons, and his present and potential future support for terrorist acts and organizations, that make him a terrible danger to the people to the United States."

Congressional Record, October 10, 2002
Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.)
"We must eliminate that [potential nuclear] threat now before it is too late. But that isn't just a future threat. Saddam's existing biological and chemical weapons capabilities pose real threats to America today, tomorrow. ... [He] is working to develop delivery systems like missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles that could bring these deadly weapons against U.S. forces and U.S. facilities in the Middle East. He could make these weapons available to many terrorist groups, third parties, which have contact with his government. Those groups, in turn, could bring those weapons into the United States and unleash a devastating attack against our citizens. I fear that greatly."

Congressional Record, October 10, 2002
Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.)
"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.”

Remarks at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, October 27, 2002
Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn.)
"There is no question that Iraq possesses biological and chemical weapons and that he seeks to acquire additional weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons. That is not in debate. I also agree with President Bush that Saddam Hussein is a threat to peace and must be disarmed, to quote President Bush directly."

Congressional Record , October 8, 2002
President Bill Clinton
"In the next century, the community of nations may see more and more of the very kind of threat Iraq poses now - a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists, drug traffickers, or organized criminals who travel the world among us unnoticed. If we fail to respond today, Saddam, and all those who would follow in his footsteps, will be emboldened tomorrow by the knowledge that they can act with impunity, even in the face of a clear message from the United Nations Security Council, and clear evidence of a weapons of mass destruction program."

Remarks at the Pentagon , February 17, 1998
"Let's imagine the future. What if he fails to comply and we fail to act, or we take some ambiguous third route, which gives him yet more opportunities to develop this program of weapons of mass destruction and continue to press for the release of the sanctions and continue to ignore the solemn commitments that he made? Well, he will conclude that the international community has lost its will. He will then conclude that he can go right on and do more to rebuild an arsenal of devastating destruction. And some day, some way, I guarantee you he'll use the arsenal. And I think every one of you who has really worked on this for any length of time, believes that, too."

Remarks at the Pentagon, February 17, 1998
"Other countries possess weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles. With Saddam, there is one big difference: He has used them, not once, but repeatedly. Unleashing chemical weapons against Iranian troops during a decade-long war. Not only against soldiers, but against civilians, firing Scud missiles at the citizens of Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Iran. And not only against a foreign enemy, but even against his own people, gassing Kurdish civilians in Northern Iraq. The international community had little doubt then, and I have no doubt today, that left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will use these terrible weapons again."

Remarks at the White House , December 16, 1998
Vice President Al Gore
"If you allow someone like Saddam Hussein to get nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, chemical weapons, biological weapons, how many people is he going to kill with such weapons? He's already demonstrated a willingness to use these weapons; he poison gassed his own people. He used poison gas and other weapons of mass destruction against his neighbors. This man has no compunctions about killing lots and lots of people."

Larry King Live, December 16, 1998
"Remember, Peter, this is a man who has used poison gas on his own people and on his neighbors repeatedly. He's trying to get ballistic missiles, nuclear weapons, chemical and biological weapons. He could be a mass murderer of the first order of magnitude. We are not going to allow that to happen."

ABC News’ "Special Report,” December 16, 1998
"We know that [Saddam] has stored away secret supplies of biological weapons and chemical weapons throughout his Country."

Remarks to the Commonwealth Club of California, San Francisco, Calif., September 23, 2002
Secretary Of State Madelyn Albright
"Countering terror is one aspect of our struggle to maintain international security and peace. Limiting the dangers posed by weapons of mass destruction is a second. Saddam Hussein's Iraq encompasses both of these challenges.”

Remarks at the American Legion Convention, New Orleans, La., August 9, 1998
"Iraq is a long way from [America], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risk that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face. And it is a threat against which we must and will stand firm. In discussing Iraq, we begin by knowing that Saddam Hussein, unlike any other leader, has used weapons of mass destruction even against his own people."

CNN "Showdown With Iraq: International Town Meeting," February 18, 1998
Defense Secretary William Cohen
Cohen appeared on ABC’s "This Week” in 1997 to talk about Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction. To illustrate the danger, he brought a five-pound bag of sugar.

Cohen: It’s important when we talk about weapons of mass destruction that we translate that into something that the American people, and hopefully, the world community can understand. If you take a five pound bag of sugar and accept – call this anthrax (holding up a 5-pound bag of table sugar). This amount of anthrax could be spread over a city – let’s say the size of Washington. It could destroy at least half the population of that city. If you had even more amounts ...

One of the things we found with anthrax is that one breath and you are likely to face death within five days. One small particle of anthrax could produce death within five days.

VX is a nerve agent. One drop from this particular thimble as such – one single drop will kill you within a few minutes.

Cokie Roberts: Would you put that bag down please.

Cohen: Now I want to point out – I will spill it on the table – point out that he has had enormous amounts and I’d like to go to some of the lies that have been told about this, because originally, if we could look at this particular chart, the original declaration of Iraq, he said he had small quantities of nerve agent for research. We found almost four tons of VX – that little vial I just showed you – four tons of it.

You da Man, Charlie!

Musician Charlie Daniels Mission To Help Iraq Troops Takes Off

11/23/2005 9:30:13 AM

A morale-boosting project for troops in Iraq has reached a crescendo of giving.

When singer Charlie Daniels learned that soldiers lacked guitars for church services, he sent one of his own. He followed that by asking guitar manufacturers to follow his example.

The Mount Juliet (Tennessee) resident says only one company that he refuses to name turned down his request. Otherwise, he says the response has been more generous than he would have thought.

Nashville-based Gibson Guitar, one of the nation's top instrument makers, surprised Daniels by offering 100 guitars worth 35-thousand dollars, and thousands of dollars worth of accessories. Other companies have followed Gibson's example, donating hundreds more electric and acoustic guitars, as well as dozens of keyboards, drum kits, microphones and amplifiers. Contributions to the effort called "Operation Heartstrings" have included laptop computers and thousands of D-V-Ds and C-Ds.

Wild Thing Comment.............
Isn't is fabulous to see Charlie Daniels and the things, thw many things he does for our Troops and always has. He has never wavered in it either.

Chris Matthews Says Terrorists Aren't Evil

From the Edmonton Sun

TORONTO -- Years after 9-11 and the "crazy Zeitgeist" that permeated the United States, Americans have still not learned to know their enemies instead of just hating them, said American political journalist Chris Matthews yesterday.

In a speech to political science students at the University of Toronto, the host of the CNBC current affairs show Hardball had plenty of harsh words for U.S. President George W. Bush, as well as the political climate that has characterized his country for the last few years.

"The period between 9-11 and (invading) Iraq was not a good time for America. There wasn't a robust discussion of what we were doing," Matthews said."If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we've given up. The person on the other side is not evil. They just have a different perspective.

"The smartest people understand the enemy's point of view, because they understand what's driving them."

Wild Thing's comment.....Now wait just a sliced Turkey minute here! The terrorists are not evil they just have different perspective? Hey Chris once again you have established you are brain dead. Won't you be surprised when you learn they want you dead just like the rest of us.

He said Bush squandered an opportunity to unite the world against terrorism and instead made decisions that built up worldwide animosity for his administration.

"We had a strong international unity coming out of 9-11. The world was never so united against terrorism and we lost that," Matthews said. "That is the great tragedy of the Bush era."

When asked what caused the U.S. to invade Iraq, he said it was a combination of factors.

"I think the father-son relationship with the Bushes is part of it. I think the oil thing is part of it," Matthews said of the current president and his father, George Bush Sr., who was president during the Gulf War more than a decade ago.

"Our friendship with Israel (is part of it) and 9-11 created a kind of crazy Zeitgeist in the country. Bush wanted to do something big. It couldn't just be tracking down al-Qaida. He wanted a big bang. I think it's a mixture of these things."

Matthews said the current president is guilty of not knowing enough about the world and not keeping up with current events, as was evident in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina and the slow reaction to the crisis in New Orleans.

Teachers Wanteed 3rd Graders to Write Anti-War Letters

Principal rejects anti-war assignment (Teachers wanted 3rd graders to write anti-war letters)

Madison students' planned letters set off dispute
Posted: Nov. 22, 2005

The principal at a Madison elementary school where teachers assigned third-graders to write a dozen letters urging an end to the war in Iraq sent a letter of apology to parents and ordered teachers to rescind the assignment Tuesday.

A letter sent home Friday with third-graders at Frank Allis Elementary School explaining the assignment to parents said students would be assigned 12 letters to write to third-graders at other Wisconsin and out-of-state schools, federal lawmakers, the media and President Bush.

If the war hadn't ended by the 12th day of letter writing, students would have had to start the process all over again. The letter gave parents an opt-out option and said the assignment was intended to teach civic responsibility, composition and handwriting skills.

The assignment irked U.S. Rep. Mark Green (R-Wis.), who sent a letter to the school's principal.

"It's a profound misjudgment to use third-grade students as political pawns regardless of the issue," said Green.

"If I received letters from third-grade students saying, 'Dear Congressman Green, please vote for the war,' I would be equally as disturbed."

School Principal Chris Hodge said the third-grade teachers came to her with the proposal last week. She believed it violated district policy but wanted to check with administration officials first.

Hodge said the teachers misinterpreted her comments and sent a letter about the campaign to parents anyway. She immediately canceled the project after finding out.

The campaign violated two district policies: one that bans teachers from promoting their personal political beliefs to students; and another that requires teachers to address opposing views when presenting controversial topics, said district spokesman Joe Quick.

"It was a mistake on the teachers' part," Quick said. "They were very enthusiastic about what they were trying to do and didn't realize it violated School Board policy."

Most of the calls made to the district about the assignment were from media outlets, not angry parents, Quick said.

Wild Thing comment.......
Besides making me furious I don't know which I am angrier at, the terrorists hugging teachers or the piece of crap parents that did not get angry about this. How about if parents start suing teachers who use classrooms as political platforms.......well somethng.....something has to be done. I mean several times now we have read where children at schools are excused from class as long as they participate in a protest aganist the war and our troops. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
What a bunch of Freakin' pinko-commies there are teaching the children, the next generation of what.....OH Look Mom and Dad I got an A+ in how to carry a sign properly in a protest against our Military.

"This was kind of a moot point by 10 o'clock this morning," Quick said.

The teachers won't face any disciplinary measures, Hodge said, but she planned to remind staff at their December meeting of district policies.

Several of the teachers who signed the letter did not return calls to their home or office phone numbers; another teacher reached at home declined to comment.

Sharon Johnson, Frank Allis Elementary PTA president, said she was disappointed to see that the envelopes and stamps she sent to school with her daughter, as requested in the assignment, were returned Tuesday.

"I got the letter, and I had no objection," Johnson said. "Her world is pretty much made up of the Cartoon Network. I thought it was a good idea to get kids to open up their eyes."

Johnson, a Democrat, had no problem with the assignment but admitted that it if the campaign had promoted the war she would have.

Green sent another letter to Hodge after she canceled the assignment suggesting students write letters to troops thanking them for their service, which he described as a non-political cause that everyone could get behind.

Hodge had not responded to that letter late Tuesday.

Rendered Innocent - But Not Free

Jack Idema and his men have suffered immeasurably at the hands of the United States government over in Afghanistan for fighting the enemy. For some strange reason, American policy has now changed and left many of our operators out in the cold.

We are no longer going after our enemies to kill them; we have now instituted a policy of appeasement.

In the lurch are Jack Idema, Brent Bennett and Ed Caraballo, a blameless journalist who was only documenting what Jack was doing.

These men were charged in July with running a "torture chamber" when all they were doing was questioning men who were plotting to kill Qanooni, Fahim, and many other men who are, in fact real and true anti-Taliban, anti-terrorist American allies. The Karzai government has taken a position of appeasing the Taliban, allowing them to run in the elections, and releasing them from jails.

In the meantime, Idema and his men were charged with nonexistent crimes and put before a Taliban-lead kangaroo court and convicted, sentenced to 10 years, Caraballo to 8. Immediately after they were taken into custody, they were tortured at Saderat, the extreme interrogation compound with FBI agents laughing about it in the hallway.

Shortly after their [Jack and his team's] arrest, they were subjected to varying degrees of torture and interrogation, apparently determined by rank. Jack Idema was repeatedly beaten by, and in the presence of- Amrullah at NDS Headquarters, as was Lieutenant Rasuli. A palace official was personally aware of and authorizing, at a minimum, Idema's initial torture at NDS Headquarters by Amrullah, with FBI agents in close proximity and directing the interrogation. During the following days and nights Idema was tortured with boiling water, starvation, threats of death, and assault with various implements (such as wire cables and rubber whips), resulting in broken ribs, a separated sternum, torn rotator cuffs, hemorrhaged eyes, multiple concussions, lacerations, contusions, and bruises. Although the U.S. Embassy later had medical reports indicating the extent of the torture, Sandra Ingram, Assistant U.S. Consul DOS Kabul, ordered the reports rewritten to tone down the extent of the injuries.

John Tiffany and Jack Idema immediately appealed the 'guilty verdict'; and 5 Afghan appeals court judges rendered them INNOCENT in late March, early April of 2005.

They are still being held at the behest of the American government because apparently now the Northern Alliance is "unrecognized" and considered part of the "resistance". We have flipped sides in the middle of a conflict with SF operators and military personnel still on the ground.

We must demand from our government officials that these men be released. They have committed no crime.

We should also be questioning a dangerous policy of turning our backs on our allies.

They should be released from custody, they've been declared innocent by the Afghans, and have been recognized by the Afghans as having POW status.

We should be wondering why a Geneva Convention hearing with regard to their POW status which has been denied by the American government.

There should be a congressional hearing as to what has happened with regard to these men, and the people involved should be held responsible.

Write your representatives.

Write your representatives, your congressmen, the President, Condoleeza Rice, Director Mueller (FBI) and Ambassador Neumann (the new Ambassador to Afghanistan since this spring).

Contact information:

for Condoleeza Rice
Main address:
U.S. Department of State
2201 C Street NW
Washington, DC 20520

Main Switchboard:
1-800-877-8339 (Federal Relay Service)

Send a message from their website to Condoleeza Rice, and be civil.

Send a message to the US Embassy in Kabul. The new Ambassador to Afghanistan is Ronald E. Neumann.

Phone: (+93-20) 230-0436
Mobile: (93) 070-20-1908

Ambassador Khalizad is now Ambassador to Iraq. Judging from his questionable track record in Afghanistan, I don't have a very high opinion of his work in Iraq, and now I have all kinds of questions as to what exactly we are accomplishing there, and under whose guiding influences.

Send a message to Director Mueller, the head of the FBI.

FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Call (202) 324-3000 or write to the following address:

Federal Bureau of Investigation
J. Edgar Hoover Building
935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20535-0001

Also, we should inquire and write about Caraballo's status to the Society of Professional Journalists and why they haven't lifted a finger in Caraballo's case:

Maria Trombly
Chair, SPJ's International Journalism Committee
Work : (212) 931-0152, (413) 323-0842

We should make it clear that we know what has gone on here and that it's an outrage and all men from TF Sabre/7 should be released, exonerated, their names cleared. And we should be also pushing for a Congressional investigation as to who was involved, the how and the why. Nobody fighting in Afghanistan or Iraq should EVER have to worry about being hung out to dry like this by a government that is employing stalinist tactics and turning its back on all the freedoms and rights that have been provided and guaranteed us by our founding documents and the blood of our forefathers, many of whom are laying at Arlington cemetary--as well as old standards which all men in uniform think they have as safeguards such as the Geneva Conventions. Are we to apply the Geneva Conventions to terrorists to whom these safeguards don't apply and ignore them for our men in uniform for whom they were written???

If so, we're setting ourselves up for FAILURE in this TERROR WAR.

This is the "Free Jack" campaign.

To join the campaign, email Cao from Cao's blog and tell her you want to join the Free Jack Idema blogburst. You will be added to the blogroll and she'll send you the html code to put up for that week in case you're pressed for time and can't put something together...or you can write your own.

We will be blogging on this every Wednesday until he and his team are released, and when they are, we'll be blogging about a congressional hearing.

Cao will maintain an email list, and will email you the post of the week along with a picture (if there is one for that week) to host at your blog.

Join the fight. No American should ever have to worry about ending up in this predicament ever again. But first, we must make sure they get home safely and in one piece.

These are the blogs so far who are participating:

For more than 27 years Jack Idema has defended his country in Latin America, South America, Eastern Europe, Africa, the Mid-East, South East Asia, Central America, and finally, South West Asia. For more than a quarter of a century Jack has worked in counter-terrorists projects and activities which may never be known or written about but which have kept America and its allies free from oppressors and terrorists.

In Country - God Bless Our Troops

CW3 Christopher Palumbo. Chief Palumbo is an Army Aviator flying UH60 Blackhawk helicopters in Afghanistan

"History does not long entrust
the care of freedom to the
weak or the timid."
- General Dwight D. Eisenhower

Army Chief Warrant Officer 3 Christopher Palumbo, 3rd Battalion, 158th Aviation Regiment, is awarded the Silver Star by CJTF-76 commanding general Army Maj. Gen. Jason Kamiya. Staff Sgt. Ken Denny

An Army aviator was awarded the Silver Star for gallantry in a ceremony Oct. 1 in Bagram, Afghanistan

Army Chief Warrant Officer Three Christopher Palumbo from A Co., 3rd Battalion, 158th Aviation Regiment, was awarded the medal for his actions April 11. Palumbo was the pilot in command of "Skillful 31," the call sign for a UH-60L Blackhawk helicopter conducting aviation operations in Southeast Afghanistan that came under fire while supporting Special Operations Soldiers.

"I was going to do whatever it took to ensure those Special Forces soldiers were protected and spared from any further injuries," Palumbo said. While inserting a quick reaction force and extracting two wounded Soldiers, Palumbo and his crew were credited with killing more than six enemy and were constantly under fire from small arms and rocket-propelled grenades.

"None of the crew aboard Skillful 31 had any reservations," Palumbo said. "Over 50 bullet holes, shot-up engine, shot-up cabin and cockpit, one crew chief wounded, four blades tore up…we were lucky." Luck may have had something to do with it but Palumbo said, "I think while the fight played out instinct took over and training just kicked in."

Palumbo worried for the safety of his crew but said that none of his crew had any reservations about the importance of the mission or more importantly the troops on the ground.

"I think this incident just reinforced the bond that aviators have with their infantry brethren and reminds us that the war in Afghanistan is not over," said Palumbo. "There are many soldiers all over this country taking the fight to the enemy and persevering." The news of the award shocked Palumbo.

"I never realized the magnitude of the actions we took that day," he said.

(Editor’s note: Army Staff Sgt. Ken Denny serves with the
117th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment.)

Hey! CNN You Can't Handle The Truth!

CNN Smears X Across VP Cheney During Live Speech

At 11:04:45 AM ET Monday CNN was airing Vice President Dick Cheney's speech live from the American Enterprise Institute in Washington -- when a large black 'X' repeatedly flashed over the Vice President's face!

The 'X' over Cheney's face appeared each time less than a second, creating an odd subliminal effect. While one 'X' flashed over Cheney's face CNN ran a headline at the bottom of its screen: "CHENEY: I DO NOT BELIEVE IT IS WRONG TO CRITICIZE."

One top White House source expressed concern about what was aired over CNN.

"Is someone in Atlanta trying to tell us something?"

A CNN spokesman did not return repeated calls late Monday night.

Over at The Political Teen he has the video of this.

Well the old communist news network is hard at work. It gets more blantant all the time. I have decided to rename the Democratic party. Since they favor the Terrorists, give aid to the terrorists ( Code Pink and their check to the insurgents), carry posters that say " We will support the troops when they shoot their officers, and stand outside Walter Reid Hospital ranting and holding up vile signs and the list is a mile long what they have done...............From now on I will call them TerrorCrats!

UPDATE:The comment by a man named John above as you can see suggested to look at the update on Michelle Milkens blog. Apparently it was allegedly ony a glitch that occured. So I will go with that.
The comment made to my post has an email that states TV director here is the link to Michelle with an kind of sort of explanation........................Michelle's update

As I just stated I will go with the allegedly it was a glitch. What will confirm this more with me if it is happens sometime with a TerrorCrat instead of a Republican and a Vice President at that.

Wild Thing's note to CNN.............. how about referring to our President as President and NO longer MR. Bush. Afterall this is the most powerful country in the entire world and one should show respesct for the office even if you hate President Bush. That would help toward convincing me it was in truth a glitch. Over and out- Wild Thing

Wanted DEAD NOT Alive-Fingers Crossed This News Is For Real

Al-Zarqawi May Be Among Dead in Iraq Fight

BAGHDAD, Iraq - U.S. forces sealed off a house in the northern city of Mosul where eight suspected al-Qaida members died in a gunfight — some by their own hand to avoid capture. A U.S. official said Sunday that efforts were under way to determine if terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was among the dead. ...

In Washington, a U.S. official said the identities of the terror suspects killed was unknown. Asked if they could include al-Zarqawi, the official replied: "There are efforts under way to determine if he was killed." ......

American soldiers maintained control of the site, imposing extraordinary security measures, a day after a fierce gunbattle that broke out when Iraqi police and U.S. soldiers surrounded a house after reports that al-Qaida in Iraq members were inside.

Three insurgents detonated explosives and killed themselves to avoid capture, Iraqi officials said. Eleven Americans were wounded, the U.S. military said.

Wild Thing comment.......
Well if he isn't dead I hope he will be soon. No taking him prisoner just K-Pow and dead!

Thank you Linda for makng this animated doll for me.

Treason Is When You Want The Other Side To Win

"Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged."
President Abraham Lincoln

We are the land of the free because and only because we are the land of the brave. I promise you we are not the land of the free because of war protestors, because of politicians that USE their political status to sell America down the drain or want to FEDX us right into the hands of the terrorists. Hey Liberals! Get your head on straight or get out of my way and our Military's way.

The USA has freed more human beings in 230 years than the rest of the world combined. America has a provable history of freeing oppressed people all over the world in fighting evil dictators. There is a bond between the radical Islam and the American left that not only sickens me, but also angers me!

Do you remember this quote????
Osama bin Laden on one of his fatwas on al-Jazeera TV. On
February 14, 2003 -- about six weeks before troops from the
United States and Britain entered Iraq, bin Laden said:
"The interests of Muslims and the interests of the socialists coincide in the war against the crusaders."

Osama was talking about the millions of leftists that poured into the streets of Europe's capitals and also into the streets of Washington and San Francisco and New York, Miami and all across the globe. Their goal was to prevent the United States and Britain from toppling Saddam Hussein. They chanted "no blood for oil" , they called the United States "the world's greatest terrorist state", they called the American government an "Axis of Evil",and they compared the American president to Adolph Hitler. They are socialists and many in our government are members of Democratic Socialists of America aka Congressional Progressive Caucus.They are names like Rep Cynthia A. McKinney, Rep Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi , John Conyers, Henry Waxman, Charles Rangel and the list goes on and on.

Party leadership and candidates are socialists in any reasonable senses of the word, but they know that you can't (yet) win national elections in the USA under that label..... so instead they resort to constant subterfuge and deception. More than 4 dozen members of Congress are self-identified in the current "Progressive Caucus" and at times the list tops 100. And they are of course all Democrats.

When the leftist protesters in America failed to save Saddam Hussein, they marched their activist troops into the Democratic presidential primary campaigns to support the candidacies of anti-war Democrats. In particular, they supported Howard Dean, who condemned America's war in Iraq and hinted that, if elected, he would make peace at the earliest possible opportunity and withdraw American forces.

I am furious that treason is not taken seriously these days, Republicans have been extraordinarily polite in confronting their accusers over grave matters of war and peace.

If you are 19 and in Afghanistan, Iraq…. you name it, and being fired on by terrorists, and the leaders in the Democratic Party say you shouldn't be there at all, it does more than confuse you. It demoralizes you. It saps your will to fight. It gets you killed. The reckless nature of the Democratic attacks on this war are getting Americans killed.

Treason is really not that difficult to define. Treason is when your country is at war and you want the other side to win!!!

The war we are in now the enemy walks among us and can kill thousands of civilians at a stroke. The left's criticism of the war has been made on grounds that the war has nothing to do with American security. Their accusations are made to undermine that security. When leftist critics launch an all-out attack on the Commander-in-Chief by calling him a liar and the war a "fraud." as they have been doing to nauseum. It isquite another thing to make these unfounded charges when our troops are still in Iraq and still in harms way, and Saddam's allies like the French are drumming up world opinion against us. And it is quite another thing, in these circumstances, to say that the President lied to the American people and sent our troops to die under false pretenses.

I declare these names we have heard from Kennedy, Reid, Pelosi, Howard Dean, John Kerry, Jimmy Carter and others are traitors to America and have most definitely committed TREASON and are the enemy within!

The war in Iraq was not about weapons of mass destruction it was about Saddam Hussein's ten-year defiance of international law, his manifest determination to break the UN's arms control arrangements and to acquire weapons of mass destruction. Heck, all the time that the freakazoid Blinx so called inspections gave Saddam to get rid of WMD, to move them our of the country is also a possibility.

There was no rush to war, but rather a deliberate march to war authorized by both political parties and a unanimous vote of the Security Council (which France and Russia and China had no intention of honoring). It was not unilateral, and it was not about a "non-existent imminent threat."

In his State of the Union in January 2003, right before the fighting began, the President said in so many words that we were not going to wait until Saddam Hussein became an imminent threat. We were not going to wait until Saddam already had the weapons in place and the plan to attack us was afoot. We were not going to wait until he struck us first.

The President said this clearly and in so many words...
We will not wait for those events to take place. Saddam will comply with the UN ultimatum. He will disarm and prove that he has disarmed, or we will disarm him. The Bush Doctrine rests on this reality. In a world in which terrorists have the means to kill 3,000 Americans in one attack, we can't wait around for the enemy to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that he meant us harm.

The mantra of the left is the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Out of simple consideration of self-defense, we must adopt the view that the friend of my enemy is my enemy.

Never forget what our enemy is capable of doing! That means the terrorists as well as the left, the liberals, the socialists of America, the enemy within.

And NEVER forget why we are free and who we are indebted to for our freedom…Our Veterans, Our Military!
This is my favorite quote in all the world!

"Freedom! No Word Was Ever Spoken
That Held Out Greater Hope,
Demanded Greater Sacrifice,
Needed More To Be Nurtured,
Blessed More The Giver,
Cursed More Its Destroyer,
Or Came Closer To Being
God"s Will On Earth.
And I Think Thats Worth Fighting For."

- General Omar Bradley

God Be With Our Troops and America- It Is A Showdown

I just got home from work and went to Drudge to see what was new.
Right off the bat I got hit in the face hard with this………….

GOP to Dems: Pull Troops Now? Okay, then let's vote...
Troop resolution Tonight; hitting the House floor between 5:45 and 7:45...
Ultimate showdown...


What is happening to America where did it go? The Democrats want to throw in the towell, they hate America, our Military and are pure evil!

I am shaking and can hardly type, this is a bold move by the Republicans, very smart but dangerous too. Like put up or shut up kind of thing. I am praying with each letter I type that we will not pull out, and that this will end the left’s socialists take over of our country.
If they vote to pull out I am so afraid what will happen to our troops. The insurgents will be even worse then they are now while I troops are still there. All hell is going to break loose!

Please pray everyone!!!

A Letter From A Soldier Serving In Iraq

Those of you that have been reading my blog know my passion for supporting our Military. I was visiting Mudville Gazette and saw this.............

I received an email from a mother whose son is currently fighting in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division. He and his platoon have penned a message to the American public that is a little different from the message we are getting via the MSM. He asked his mom to help get this message out and she asked me. Here it from the soldiers on the ground.....

The letter is HERE

Thank you Greyhawk where I saw the link in a post at Mudville Gazette
Thank you SGT. Hook for sharing this powerful letter.

George Galloway Says U.S. Will Not Dare to Attack Syria


British MP George Galloway at Damascus University: U.S. Army is Defeated in Iraq. U.S. Will Not Dare to Attack Syria. Bashar Al-Assad is the Last Arab Leader and Tony Blair Is A Slave of Slaves


Here is the video of Galloway blood is boiling!!!!!!!

And here is the Transcript....................

Following are excerpts from a speech given by British MP George Galloway in Damascus University, which aired on Al-Jazeera TV on November 13, 2005.

Galloway: Condoleezza Rice has been touring the Arab countries to speak about Syria, so I have come to Syria to speak about Condoleezza Rice.

You know, it never ceases to surprise me that Arab governments can allow a foreigner to come to their country and sit on their tables with their leaders to insult and attack another Arab country. This is the behavior of slave governments, and the Bahraini regime should have asked Condoleezza to leave when she insulted Syria in their presence, in their capital. In fact maybe it's the rulers who should leave. When she visited Cairo a few months ago, the Egyptian masses - who are still a part of the Arab world, by the way - raised the slogan about the Arab rulers: "Give them a visa ya Condoleezza," and I believe that this is a slogan which has not lost its meaning.

I want to be very clear. I was clear in July, and what I said in July has followed me all over the world by the American and Israeli propaganda machine, so I want to be very clear again. All dignified people in the world, whether Arabs or Muslims or others with dignity, are very proud of the speech made by President Bashar Al-Assad a few days ago here in Damascus.

For me he is the last Arab ruler, and Syria is the last Arab country. It is the fortress of the remaining dignity of the Arabs, and that's why I'm proud to be here and addressing you this evening.

After July he (Blair) condemned me for what I said about President Bashar, but only two years before, he was taking the president to meet Her Majesty the queen. If President Bashar is so dangerous a man, why did he take him inside the royal palace in London? The truth is, Mr. Blair changed his policy towards Syria because President Bush ordered him to. Mr. Blair too is a slave of the slaves.

The reason that Syria is facing this crisis is not because of any bad thing which Syria has done or any weaknesses within its democracy, or within its economy, or within its human rights record - and there are weaknesses in all three of these. The reason why Syria is being threatened is not because of anything bad which she did, but because of the good which she is doing. That's the reason why Syria is being threatened - because she will not betray the Palestinian resistance, because she will not betray the Lebanese resistance, Hizbullah, because she will not sign a shameful surrender-peace with General Sharon, and above all - more than any of these others - because Syria will not allow her country to be used as a military base for America to crush the resistance in Iraq. These are the reasons why Syria is being targeted by these imperial powers.

Now I warned in July that Lebanon was being sharpened as a knife to be used in the back of Syria, and I warned the Lebanese people that those who care nothing for Lebanon are preparing to use you and your government to weaken the last Arab power. And I turned out to be right. This knife has been sharpened and now they are using it.

And I warned in July about this character, Mehlis. And please don't call him Sayyed (Mr.) Mehlis. I'm not calling him Sayyed Mehlis.

Translator: We don’t call him Sayyed Mehlis…

Galloway: No, I was interviewed by several Syrian journalists today, and every time I said Mehlis, they said SayyedMehlis. No, he's not SayyedMehlis.

Just because somebody is appointed by the UN which became - you know, Lenin called the League of Nations a "Thieves' kitchen." The UN became a thieves' and beggars' kitchen, where the thieves make the decisions, and the beggars vote for the decisions, and if the beggars will not vote for the decisions, the thieves will implement the decisions anyway. Because somebody came through the UN it doesn't make them a saint. Mehlis is not a saint, he's not an impartial civil servant, he is a policeman with a record of framing Arab governments, and this is why he was given this job. He was the one who investigated the so-called La Belle disco explosion in Berlin. He named Libya as the responsible party for this crime, and Ronald Reagan used this finding to send a massive and violent attack against Libya, which killed innocent people including the daughter of Mu'ammar Qadhafi herself. This was Mehlis' job, to falsely accuse Libya of this crime, which everybody now knows Libya was not responsible for.

This record of framing Arab countries is the qualification of Mehlis for his new job of framing Syria.

This is why he was given this job, and everybody should be aware that the verdict of the Mehlis inquiry was already fixed before he began his investigation. This murder of Hariri was deliberately planned and executed precisely to implicate Syria and to set in train the events which have unfolded.

Now some people asked me here, do I think that this will all lead to a situation in Syria which can be compared to the fate of Iraq, and I say no. There is no chance of the American army invading Syria, for many reasons. The first reason is because the Iraqi resistance are defeating the American army in Iraq.

You know, when I went to the American Senate on May the 17th of this year, which seems only yesterday for me, and for the American senators - I heard myself say on a video clip the other day - I told the Senate on May the 17th that 1,600 American soldiers had died. 1,600. That was on May 17th. Today, it's almost 2,100 and rising rapidly. October was the bloodiest month of the war, with the Americans losing 107 dead soldiers in one month.

Now the Americans cannot control one single street in any town or city or village of Arab Iraq. Not one street can they control safely.

They can control the skies, but only if they don't come low enough for the RPG.

No American soldier who leaves his barracks can be sure that he will come back alive.

Translator: No American soldier who leaves his suitcases can be sure he will return to life again.

Galloway: Every Iraqi, every roadside, every car is a potential deadly ending for him. And the American army... The American army is losing the will to fight.

So America is losing the war in Iraq and she cannot dream of starting a new war in Syria. The second reason is: The public opinion in Britain and America is moving decisively against the policy of Bush and Blair.

The political strength of George Bush is beginning to seep away into the sand. He is not strong enough to declare another war against another Arab country.

And in Britain, these are the final days of Tony Blair. The British media is discussing every day whether this day Blair will resign.

And the third reason why they will never invade Syria is sitting here and is outside in the streets. It is that if they dared to invade Syria, every dignified person in the country would fight them exactly as the people of Iraq are fighting them now.

When Hitler was on the French coast and my country stood alone, when the Americans were watching the war on television before they joined it, we faced a violent foreign military invasion. And of course there were collaborators in Britain who would have collaborated with Hitler if he had landed, but the vast majority of British people would have fought Hitler, with their teeth, if necessary, because no free people will allow itself to be occupied by a foreign army, and Syria is a free people and will never agree to such an invasion.

What your lives would be if from the Atlantic to the Gulf we had one Arab union - all this land, 300 million people, all this oil and gas and water, occupied by a people who speak the same language, follow the same religions, listen to the same Um Kulthum... The Arabs would be a superpower in the world if they had this unity, instead of the shameful situation in which the Arabs find themselves today.

This is not a dream, you know. In the European Union, there is almost 100 languages, there is many religions, there is countries who only 50 years ago were slaughtering each other by the million in war - totally different cultures with nothing in common except living on the mainland of Europe. But we are making a European Union which in 20 years will balance the power of the United States of America, inshallah.

Chairman Mao said that sometimes the enemy struggles mightily to lift a huge stone, only to drop it on its own feet, and I believe that's what has happened in the world today.

Instead of terrorizing the whole world with American power, the invasion of Iraq has showed everybody in the world the limitations of American power.

Hundreds of thousands are ready to fight them in the Middle East, and in Latin America there is revolution everywhere. Fidel Castro is feeling young again. Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile are all electing left-wing governments that are challenging American domination. And in Venezuela the hero Hugo Chavez has stood against them over and over and over again.

Chavez was twice overthrown on America's orders, and twice the poor masses of the slums of Caracas poured onto the streets in their millions and reinstalled him in the president's house. America cannot dare to touch his head, because if they harm Hugo Chavez, a fire will erupt in Latin America which will engulf them.

So I say to you, citizens of the last Arab country, this is a time for courage, for unity, for wisdom, for determination, to face these enemies with the dignity your president has shown, and I believe, God willing, we will prevail and triumph, fwa-salam aleikum.

They Were Struck With A Hellfire....

Air Force fighters strike insurgents

Air Force F-15 Eagles, F-16 Fighting Falcons and MQ-1 Predators flew air strikes against anti-Iraqi forces near the Iraq-Syria border in support of Operation Steel Curtain.

After Marines swept into Ubaydi, a town near Karabilah, Nov. 14, they came in contact with anti-Iraqi forces. The F-15s flew in and dropped precision-guided bombs against enemy forces in a grove of trees.

A Predator unmanned aerial vehicle fired a Hellfire missile at a building from where enemy forces were shooting and successfully drove them from the location.

Later the same day, F-16s and a Predator responded to provide ground support in the same area. The Predator successfully fired a Hellfire missile against insurgents entrenched in a tree line.

Operation Steel Curtain aims to restore Iraqi sovereign control along the Iraq-Syria border and destroy the al Qaeda terrorists operating throughout the Al Qa’im region. More than 1,000 Iraqi Soldiers and 2,500 Marines, Soldiers and Sailors are participating in Operation Steel Curtain.

Ubaydi is on the banks of the Euphrates River, about 12.5 miles from the Syrian border and separated into two main areas, Old and New Ubaydi. Coalition forces cleared Old Ubaydi. Now the Iraqi Army and coalition forces are focusing on clearing the al-Qaeda in Iraq stronghold of New Ubaydi.

This offensive is part of the larger Operation Sayaid (Hunter), designed to prevent al Qaeda in Iraq from operating in the Euphrates River Valley and throughout Al Anbar. The operation is also to establish a permanent Iraqi army presence in the Al Qa’im region.

Iraqi and coalition forces cleared the towns of Husaybah and Karabilah early in the operation, which began Nov. 5, and established a permanent security presence. Coalition officials suspect many of the terrorists now fighting in Ubaydi fled from the two towns.

While the fighting has been sporadic, it has been characterized by ground commanders as some of the heaviest since the operation began.

Intelligence reports indicate the strong resistance to the Iraqi and coalition push into the city is due, in large part, to the fact that terrorists believe they are trapped and have nowhere else to go.

Officials estimate coalition forces killed 30 terrorists since Nov. 15, which brings the total to nearly 80 killed since forces started entering Ubaydi.

Most of those terrorists fell to coalition air strikes, although some were killed in direct small-arms fire engagements with Iraqi and coalition ground forces.

Forces continue clearing the city -- house-by-house -- occasionally encountering buildings that rigged with explosives and triggered to detonate on entry. The also seized numerous weapons caches, including several that contained suicide vests and bomb-making material.

Overall, forces have found and destroyed 36 weapons caches during the sweep.

Iraqi and coalition forces have also found numerous improvised explosive devices and mines. Coalition forces destroyed the vast majority of these weapons. Detained terrorists revealed the precise locations of many IEDs. Forces have found 107 IEDs and mines.

Coalition forces captured several insurgents trying to sneak out of the area by crawling among a flock of sheep. Overall, the forces have captured 150 terrorists.

Cindy Sheehan Demands Trial---- Good Grief!


'Peace Mom' Demands Trial better yet ( 'Psycho Mom' Demands Trial )

WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2005
CBS barf-ola so called news

AP) War protester Cindy Sheehan said Wednesday she was demanding a trial for demonstrating without a permit outside the White House.

Sheehan also plans to revive her protest near President Bush's Texas ranch during Thanksgiving week, despite new county ordinances banning roadside camping.

Sheehan and other anti-war activists arrested with her Sept. 26 in Washington conducted a news conference in front of the federal courthouse Wednesday before heading to a court appearance on the misdemeanor charge.

Sheehan, whose 24-year-old soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq last year, said "2,062 people have been killed as of today in this monstrosity."

She and more than 300 others were arrested as they gathered near an entrance to the White House grounds. Each carried a board bearing the name of a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq.

The arrests outside the White House concluded a weekend of protests that drew over 100,000 anti-war activists, and a smaller group of counter-protesters. It was the largest anti-war demonstration since the Vietnam War.

Those arrested got $50 tickets and authorities charged them with protesting without a permit. All were released.

In Texas next week, Sheehan and at least a dozen supporters are prepared to be arrested as they return to the makeshift campsite along the road leading to Bush's ranch, where he is expected to spend the holiday.

"It is critical for our democracy that we continue to ask the same questions that Cindy Sheehan asked this summer: What is the noble cause for the war with Iraq, and at what point do we say enough bloodshed has happened?" Hadi Jawad, co-founder of the Crawford Peace House, said Tuesday.

Bush defends the decision to go into Iraq in 2003, citing the threat posed by Saddam Hussein. The president says troops will remain in Iraq as long as necessary.

Sheehan was not arrested during her 26-day vigil that coincided with Bush's working vacation at his ranch just outside Crawford.

But dozens of residents in the rural area complained of noise and traffic congestion as the protesters pitched tents in shallow ditches about 2 miles away from the ranch. Some traffic was from counter protests of hundreds of Bush supporters who said Sheehan's group was hurting troop morale.

A month later, McLennan County commissioners approved the new ordinances, which prohibit parking on parts of 14 roads near the ranch, roughly a 5-mile radius, and prohibit camping in any county ditch. The laws also ban portable toilets in ditches.

Wild Thing's comment......
Send her to Gitmo until we can schedule her trial! Then when she goes to trial put her up in front of Judge Judy!
There is nothing lower on the food chain than those in the Democrat machine! She despises this country and has openly said so. She described her own son's cowardly murderers as "freedom fighters." She is a complete and utter scumbag who is delighted - DELIGHTED - that her son is dead. She didn't like him and his death has given her the fame and access she has clearly always craved. Cindy Sheehan is among the worst moral monsters currently befouling this planet with her unwanted presence.

Bin Laden, the Taliban and Al Qaeda HATE this Man

Yes, not only do Bin Laden, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda hate anyone that is NON-Muslim but they have a special hate for Jack Idema. Because he is good at what he has been trained to do!

Jack Idema has spent a long time on many missions defending our freedom and our way of life. Isn't it about time we got him out of this ridiculous mess he's in when he was only doing the job he was sent over there to do? The job that he's been trained for and that he's so good at?

He is our best weapon against Bin Laden, the Taliban and Al Qaeda. This intelligence gathering he was doing was second to none. It's the kind of intelligence that the FBI probably has wet dreams about.

Jack is a former member of the US Army Special Forces and is a Green Beret. He has operated for the US Government, and trained foreign counter-terrorist forces in Nicaragua against the Sandinistas, in El Salvador with the Ramon Bellosa Immediate Reaction Battalion against the FMLN terrorists, in East Germany and Europe against the Bader Meinhoff Gang, in Thailand with the Thai Special Warfare Command, in Haiti protecting the US Mission against dissidents, in the Middle East against Hezbollah, Hamas and Abu Nidal terrorists, in Lithuania against the OMON terrorists, and numerous other operational areas.

His Special Ops and SF background includes more than two dozen SF, Special Ops, police, counter-terrorist and classified courses and schools. He is an expert in counter-terrorism, intelligence asset development, and hostage-rescue, with more than 25 years' experience in all of these. He's currently employed by the Counter-Terrorist Group U.S. (CounTerr Group) as a CT Operator in a direct action capacity against international terrorism, specifically, Al Qaeda and related terrorist groups.

CounTerr, aka CounTerr Group, is an organization based in the US that leads counter-terrorism activites in support of US government initiatives. Counterr Group conducts training, organization, direct action, HUMINT, and advisory services to foreign and domestic agencies. Counterr Group has been in operation , in various forms, in various countries, for approximately 27 years. Counterr Group began deploying personnel to Afghanistan and other countries just weeks after 9/11 as part of the effort to combat Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda and other terrorist forces such as the Taliban. Counterr Group's froeign operating group and CONUS personnel worked in conjunction with Commander Massoud's Northern Alliance, which were primarily responsible for the liberation of Afghanistan with US Army Special Forces and Special Ops units.

We should allow him to do the work he was trained to do and get the hell out of his way. A man like this can only make the world safer from terrorism, and with his Northern Alliance Allies, he was doing the job. Until he was stopped. And demonized by the press, and victimized by the FBI and the DOS. This should also be investigated.

We should be complaining to our elected representatives about his situation and demand that it be rectified immediately.

They are being held at Pulacharke Prison because the American government has ordered it.

This must not stand.

He should be allowed to proceed with the Geneva Convention hearing!

They should be released from custody, they've been declared innocent by the Afghans, and have been recognized by the Afghans has having POW status.

There should be a congressional hearing as to what has happened with regard to these men, and the people involved should be held responsible.

Write your representatives.

Write your representatives, your congressmen, the President, Condoleeza Rice, Director Mueller (FBI) and Ambassador Neumann (the new Ambassador to Afghanistan since this spring).

Contact information:

U.S. Embassy Kabul, Afghanistan
Phone: (+93-20) 230-0436
Mobile: (93) 070-20-1908

Ambassador Khalizad is now Ambassador to Iraq. Judging from his questionable track record in Afghanistan, I don't have a very high opinion of his work in Iraq, and now I have all kinds of questions as to what exactly we are accomplishing there, and under whose guiding influences.

Send a message to Director Mueller, the head of the FBI.

We should make it clear that we know what has gone on here and that it's an outrage and all men from TF Sabre/7 should be released, exhonerated, their names cleared. And we should be also pushing for a Congressional investigation as to who was involved, the how and the why. Nobody fighting in Afghanistan or Iraq should EVER have to worry about being hung out to dry like this by a government that is employing stalinist tactics and turning its back on all the freedoms and rights that have been provided and guaranteed us by our founding documents and old standards such as the Geneva Conventions. Are we to apply the Geneva Conventions to terrorists to whom these safeguards don't apply and ignore them for our men in uniform for whom they were written???

If so, we're setting ourselves up for FAILURE in this TERROR WAR.

This is the "Free Jack" campaign.

To join the campaign, email Cao from Cao's blog and tell her you want to join the Free Jack Idema blogburst. You will be added to the blogroll and she'll send you the html code to put up for that week in case you're pressed for time and can't put something together...or you can write your own.

We will be blogging on this every Wednesday until he and his team are released, and when they are, we'll be blogging about a congressional hearing.

Cao will maintain an email list, and will email you the post of the week along with a picture (if there is one for that week) to host at your blog.

Join the fight. No American should ever have to worry about ending up in this predicament ever again. But first, we must make sure they get home safely and in one piece.

These are the blogs so far who are participating:

Clinton to Israel: "Put some ice on it"....

Bill Clinton to Israel: Iran No Threat
Article from NewsMax

Ex-president Bill Clinton urged Israelis over the weekend not to overreact to comments by newly elected Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad recommending that Israel be "wiped off the map."

Speaking at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on Saturday, Clinton acknowledged that the remark was "outrageous," but he cautioned that the Iranian leader was "not elected because of his hatred for Israel or the West."

"He was elected because of the economic distress of ordinary Iranians, and which he promised to relieve by giving them financial assistance," Clinton explained, according to the Jerusalem Post.

He warned Israel not to act unilaterally when reacting to terrorist threats, saying that "true peace and security can only come through principled compromise."

Clinton urged Israelis to "organize their politics" so "their search for peace can continue" regardless of domestic policies.

On Oct. 27, President Ahmadinejad told a "World Without Zionism" conference that Israel is a "disgraceful blot" on the Middle East that should be "wiped off the map."

Wild Thing's comment...........
First of all we already know that Bill and Hillary are anti-semites!
Biographer Jerry Oppenheimer’s book STATE OF A UNION: INSIDE THE COMPLEX MARRIAGE OF BILL AND Hillary CLINTON …In one particularly shocking passage in the book, Oppenheimer quotes a campaign official who describes an angry attack by Hillary in which she screams at him, "You fucking Jew bastard!"
Two sourced eyewitnesses confirmed to Oppenheimer that they heard the verbal assault.

And who the hell wants to hear advice from the man who saw the '93 bombing of the WTC, as just some silly crime, that should be handled by the N.Y.C. cops and then forgotten, who refused to take OBL, THRICE, when offered up on a silver platter, virtually ignored every scrap of evidence that terrorist/al Qaeda members were blowing up and killing people all over the world, ignored the warning about the bombing of the USS Cole, etc.

A Lesson for Condi Rice

The EVIL Hamas start them young on the road to HATE and killing of Jews ! Do NOT kid yourself the YOUNG Hamas are the enemy not ONLY the adults among them !

PM Sharon Meets With US Secy. of State Condoleeza Rice; We Will Never Hold Contacts With Hamas."

(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)
Monday, 14 November, 2005
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon met this morning (Monday),
14.11.05with US Secretary of State Dr. Condoleeza Rice

The Prime Minister said at the start of the meeting: "We welcome Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, a friend of Israel who has worked very hard to reach a diplomatic settlement between Israel and the Palestinians and is making great efforts to strengthen the democratization process in the Middle East. We are pleased to welcome her and I am certain that this visit will strengthen the network of bilateral relations."

US Secy. of State Rice thanked the Prime Minister and conveyed greetings from US President George Bush. She said that US President Bush and the American people admired Prime Minister Sharon's courage and leadership in
successfully implementing the Disengagement Plan. She said that she expects to continue working closely with the Prime Minister and his team on advancing toward a solution of two states living side by side in peace, without terrorism, in a more democratic manner, and in bringing peace to the entire region.

Prime Minister Shalom congratulated US Secy. of State Rice on her birthday and presented her with a gift - a Bible in Hebrew and English with Jerusalem embossed in gold on the cover; she thanked him for the gift.

Prime Minister Sharon briefed US Secy. of State Rice on developments regarding the Rafiah crossing and told her the issue is due to be resolved; he praised the work of quartet envoy James Wolfensohn. Dr. Rice thanked the Prime Minister for the progress and added that she hoped a deal would be signed today.

The US Secy. of State said that while the US would never ask the Prime Minister to do anything that might impair Israel's security, it was important to see how matters could be otherwise helped along. She added that while Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Abu Mazen is not doing what is expected of him, he is better than previous leaders and is certainly better than the alternative.

.......Hey Condi ..Abu Mazen is a terrorist!

Prime Minister Sharon emphasized that Hamas's participation in the elections would be a serious mistake because the participation of an armed terrorist organization would only weaken Abu Mazen:
"While we will not interfere in the elections we will not coordinate on them and will not allow Hamas members to either work or move about other than they do today. Hamas's participation could lead to the end of the Roadmap, if there is a situation in which an armed terrorist organization is a political partner in the Palestinian administration. While we fully support the President's democratization efforts, we will not help Hamas. We will not help those who murder Jews even if they participate in the elections. Nowhere in the world would they be allowed to participate in elections. Even according to the Oslo accords, they were not allowed to participate in elections."

The Prime Minister stressed that only if Hamas disarms and annuls its covenant (, which calls for the destruction of Israel, would Israel be able to assist the elections and accept Hamas's participation in them.

Prime Minister Sharon said that if Abu Mazen does not fight terrorism now, he will be less likely to do so after the elections. The Prime Minister noted that after going home last to the Shikmim farm, he heard artillery fire all night.

US Secy. of State Rice said that she believes that after the PA elections, it will be easier to compel Hamas to disarm because the pressure will come from the entire international community. She said that this was what had happened in northern Ireland and Angola. She said that she respects the Israeli position and added that if Abu Mazen does not disarm Hamas, he would lose both American and international support. Dr. Rice said that the US would never hold contacts with Hamas or Islamic Jihad even if they are in the administration, adding that the US would never countenance a situation in which terrorist organizations that remain armed take part in the Palestinian administration.

Wild Thing's comment......
Dear Condi, you are a dreamer ....."Rice said that she believes that after the PA elections, it will be easier to compel Hamas to disarm because the pressure will come from the entire international community".......the reality Condi is that the Hamas and the Hezbollah, could care less what the international community thinks about them. And to compare northern Ireland and Angola to the Hamas....well that is like comparing apples and oranges. The Hamas and the orther Muslim terrorists groups want anyone in the entire world dead unless they are the radical Muslims that they ( the terrorists) are. The terrorists even want other Muslims dead that are not in agreement with them. Now think about it Condi, do you worried about terrorists fromm Ireland cominog to America and flying places into the World Trade Center....NO. Did the terrorists from Ireland attack the USS Cole, Bombing of Marine Barracks April 1983,Bombing of Marine Barracks, Beirut, Oct of 1983, Beirut, Pan Am 747 Flight 103 Bombing, Lockerbie and on and on and on.....

You see Condi, the terrorists hate with all that is in them the Christian and the Jew more then loving their own life and being alive. More then their own childrens lives as we see them send their children out with bombs strapped to their young bodies to kill the Jews and Christians. You can see a partial list of Islamic Terrorists attacks here at my Terrorists page at my web site

“Islam is a revolutionary faith that comes to destroy any government made by man. Islam doesn’t look for a nation to be in better condition than another nation. Islam doesn’t care about the land or who own the land.The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power in this world that tries to get in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy.” -Mawlana Abul Ala Mawdudi, founder of Pakistan’s fundamentalist movement

“Oh Allah, strike the apostate rulers, Oh Allah, kill them one after the other, sparing none." -Abu Musab al Zarqawi January 7, 2004

Israelis made their desert bloom. They built the only industrialized economy in the entire Middle East. They built the only liberal democracy in the Middle East. I am a fierce supporter of Israel’s survival and have no sympathy for the Palestinian side in the conflict in the Middle East. Israel's longtime enemy, and its enemy today, is of the very same terror that was launched on us on Sept.11,2001.... but, if less confounding, more routine and more tolerated. It is the world's acceptance of the routineization of this killing of Jews that has so affronted Israel, its allies, and others like myself . It is time to show that Jewish blood is NOT cheap and those who shed it will pay a tremendous price !

With the thinking of Condi Rice at least to me, in my opinion, she should never even say that about letting the Hamas be a part of the elections. I take that as an insult to all Jews as well as to all Christians and non-Muslims. Either we are at war against the terrorists or we are not. That to me means we do not pick up a daisy and say , this one not that one, this one not that one. Israel has been fighiting the same terrorists groups that we are now fighting and we need to make it clear that we are against all of them NOT just a few are the axis of evil but all of them.

Terrorists see concessions as a victory and proof that their violence works, as the Oslo process and the withdrawal from south Lebanon have shown. That’s why everyone accepts that you don’t negotiate with terrorists. It is therefore only logical to conclude that further concessions will result in more terror when future demands are not met, as the PA leadership continues to proclaim.

For more of how I feel about Israel see my Israel page if you like.

Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs

Sometimes there are articles or books that just stand out above the others. This is one like that, and this is one SHEEPDOG that want's you to know how I feel about the sheep. A BIG thank you to a friend of mine for sending this to me.

I am a sheep dog..what are you?

By LTC(RET) Dave Grossman, RANGER, Ph.D., author of "On Killing."

Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for? - William J. Bennett - in a lecture to the United States Naval Academy November 24, 1997

One Vietnam veteran, an old retired colonel, once said this to me: "Most of the people in our society are sheep. They are kind, gentle, productive creatures who can only hurt one another by accident." This is true. Remember, the murder rate is six per 100,000 per year, and the aggravated assault rate is four per 1,000 per year. What this means is that the vast majority of Americans are not inclined to hurt one another.

Some estimates say that two million Americans are victims of violent crimes every year, a tragic, staggering number, perhaps an all-time record rate of violent crime. But there are almost 300 million Americans, which means that the odds of being a victim of violent crime is considerably less than one in a hundred on any given year. Furthermore, since many violent crimes are committed by repeat offenders, the actual number of violent citizens is considerably less than two million.

Thus there is a paradox, and we must grasp both ends of the situation: We may well be in the most violent times in history, but violence is still remarkably rare. This is because most citizens are kind, decent people who are not capable of hurting each other, except by accident or under Extreme provocation. They are sheep.

I mean nothing negative by calling them sheep. To me it is like the pretty, blue robin's egg. Inside it is soft and gooey but someday it will grow into something wonderful. But the egg cannot survive without its hard blue shell. Police officers, soldiers, and other warriors are like that shell, and someday the civilization they protect will grow into something wonderful. For now, though, they need warriors to protect them from the predators.

"Then there are the wolves," the old war veteran said, "and the wolves feed on the sheep without mercy." Do you believe there are wolves out there who will feed on the flock without mercy? You better believe it. There are evil men in this world and they are capable of evil deeds. The moment you forget that or pretend it is not so, you become a sheep. There is no safety in denial.

"Then there are sheepdogs," he went on, "and I'm a sheepdog. I live to protect the flock and confront the wolf."

If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath, a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero's path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed

Let me expand on this old soldier's excellent model of the sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. We know that the sheep live in denial, that is what makes them sheep. They do not want to believe that there is evil in the world. They can accept the fact that fires can happen, which is why they want fire extinguishers, fire sprinklers, fire alarms and fire exits throughout their kids' schools.

But many of them are outraged at the idea of putting an armed police officer in their kid's school. Our children are thousands of times more likely to be killed or seriously injured by school violence than fire, but the sheep's only response to the possibility of violence is denial. The idea of someone coming to kill or harm their child is just too hard, and so they chose the path of denial.

The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, can not and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheep dog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed. The world cannot work any other way, at least not in a representative democracy or a republic such as ours.

Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land. They would prefer that he didn't tell them where to go, or give them traffic tickets, or stand at the ready in our airports in camouflage fatigues holding an M-16. The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, "Baa."

Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind one lonely sheepdog.

The students, the victims, at Columbine High School were big, tough high school students, and under ordinary circumstances they would not have had the time of day for a police officer. They were not bad kids; they just had nothing to say to a cop. When the school was under attack, however, and SWAT teams were clearing the rooms and hallways, the officers had to physically peel those clinging, sobbing kids off of them. This is how the little lambs feel about their sheepdog when the wolf is at the door.

Look at what happened after September 11, 2001 when the wolf pounded hard on the door. Remember how America, more than ever before, felt differently about their law enforcement officers and military personnel? Remember how many times you heard the word hero?

Understand that there is nothing morally superior about being a sheepdog; it is just what you choose to be. Also understand that a sheepdog is a funny critter: He is always sniffing around out on the perimeter, checking the breeze, barking at things that go bump in the night, and yearning for a righteous battle. That is, the young sheepdogs yearn for a righteous battle. The old sheepdogs are a little older and wiser, but they move to the sound of the guns when needed right along with the young ones.

Here is how the sheep and the sheepdog think differently. The sheep pretend the wolf will never come, but the sheepdog lives for that day. After the attacks on September 11, 2001, most of the sheep, that is, most citizens in America said, "Thank God I wasn't on one of those planes." The sheepdogs, the warriors, said, "Dear God, I wish I could have been on one of those planes. Maybe I could have made a difference." When you are truly transformed into a warrior and have truly invested yourself into warriorhood, you want to be there. You want to be able to make a difference.

There is nothing morally superior about the sheepdog, the warrior, but he does have one real advantage. Only one. And that is that he is able to survive.

France Waving White Flags

Armistice Day call for Paris calm

Residents from riot-torn suburbs were to march in Paris on Friday - Armistice Day, marking the end of the First World War - waving white handkerchiefs to call for an end to more than two weeks of violence.

President Jacques Chirac acknowledged on Thursday that France must confront the inequalities and discrimination that fuelled the unrest.

The violence continued to abate on its 15th night on Thursday night under state-of-emergency measures and heavy policing, with fewer skirmishes and fewer cars burned, national police spokeswoman Catherine Casteran said.

Police, meanwhile, suspended eight officers, two of them suspected of beating a man detained during the riots.

"Things are calming," Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy said on Thursday on France-2 television. "But that doesn't mean it won't restart."

Chirac had kept largely silent about France's worst unrest since the 1968 student-worker uprising: in two weeks of violence, he had spoken publicly on the crisis only once.

"There is a need to respond strongly and rapidly to the undeniable problems faced by many residents of underprivileged neighbourhoods around our cities," Chirac told a news conference.

"Whatever our origins, we are all the children of the Republic, and we can all expect the same rights."

Finance Minister Thierry Breton said the government was considering relaxing restrictions on highly regulated service industries and business start-ups to help create jobs in poor suburbs, in an interview published on Friday.

"We have put a lot of money into the suburbs over the past 20 years," Breton was quoted as saying by The Financial Times. "But obviously it wasn't enough. We need to work on how to create more jobs and growth in those areas."

Bush Attacks Iraq War Critics

This is a day late in the Theodore’s World news Dept.or as it as also known as the PC Free Zone Gazette, but there was NO way in Hell I was going to post this on Veterans day and take away from our Veterans special day with a post with names in it that should be locked up and the key thrown away.

Bush's speech, delivered against the backdrop of soldiers in uniform, immediately drew sharp criticism from Democrats.


Vice President Dick Cheney addresses an audience, Friday, Nov. 11, 2005, at Veterans Day ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va. White House


President Bush ……NOT Mr. Bush not at this Blog so bite me lefties if you just can’t say President when it comes to Bush and you always call Clinton President. Grrrrrrr

Now where was I, oh yes, President Bush gave a wonderful speech on Veteran's Day, and of course the anti-American’s had to have something to say.

It is a long and worth every word he said, so I am going to just point out a few of the remarks and my comments in BOLD with them. Lock and load and get ready!

Get ready because this jerk Sen. Kennedy Accuses Bush of Exploiting Veterans Day..............

By William Branigin
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, November 11, 2005; 4:05 PM

President Bush lashed out today at critics of his Iraq war policy, strongly denying any manipulation of prewar intelligence and accusing his detractors of sending "the wrong signal" to U.S. troops and America's enemies.

In a speech marking Veterans Day at the Tobyhanna Army Depot in Pennsylvania, Bush pointed to bipartisan support for an October 2002 congressional resolution authorizing the use of force against Iraq and suggested that critics now were hypocritically refusing to "stand behind" U.S. troops fighting there.

Bush's speech, delivered against the backdrop of soldiers in uniform, immediately drew sharp criticism from Democrats.

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) accused Bush of exploiting Veterans Day in "a campaign-like attempt to rebuild his own credibility by tearing down those who seek the truth about the clear manipulation of intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq war."
In a statement, Kennedy added, "Instead of providing open and honest answers about how we will achieve success in Iraq and allow our troops to begin to come home, the president reverted to the same manipulation of facts to justify a war we never should have fought."
Kennedy charged that Bush's speech "only further tarnished this White House and further damaged his presidency."

Wild Thing………Well Kennedy, do you think just one day of the freakin year you could bug off and find some pool to drown in? President Bush makes a speech on one of the day’s a President SHOULD make a speech to our Veterans, to our Troops and to America and you have to turn it into more lies, more slant, more BS from the left.

And look who joins in with me……….heh heh sock it to em’ Scott! White House Press Secretary, Scott McClellan, responded to the fat Drunk from Massachusetts with this statement:
"It is regrettable that Senator Kennedy has chosen Veteran's Day to continue leveling baseless and false attacks that send the wrong signal to our troops and our enemy during a time of war. It is also regrettable that Senator Kennedy has found more time to say negative things about President Bush then he ever did about Saddam Hussein. If America were to follow Senator Kennedy's foreign policy, Saddam Hussein would not only still be in power, he would be oppressing and occupying Kuwait."

OOHRAH! from Wild Thing

In a statement, Kerry retorted: "I wish President Bush knew better than to dishonor America's veterans by playing the politics of fear and smear on Veterans Day. Instead of trying to salvage his slumping political fortunes, the commander in chief should honor our men and women in uniform with a clear strategy for success in Iraq."

Kerry charged, "This administration misled a nation into war by cherry-picking intelligence and stretching the truth beyond recognition. . . . Today, they continue the same games hoping Americans forget the mess they made in Iraq that's cost over 2,000 Americans their lives and their failure to find Osama bin Laden."

Wild Thing………..Kiss my Ass Hanoi Kerry and the ole money bags you rode in on. You Kerry are a traitor to this country, and if I was in charge you would be punished for treason for what you did knowing there were POW’s getting your words making matters even worse for them in Nam. But you did not give a rats behind. “Mislead a Nation into war”, hey listen up Kerry, you wanted to go into Iraq too, now which flip freakin flop was that .???? Number 1,000,023,400 ????

Just a few last thoughts from Wild Thing.......left is extremely gullible. They think Nixon started the Vietnam war, and the Clinton impeachment was about sex. I don't think their brains will ever catch up with the rest of the world. They just dust them off every now and then, and it keeps them alive.
Liberals are so stupid, they see a sign that says "Wet floor", and they do!!!

Bush's remarks came amid steadily falling job-approval ratings and growing public doubts about the president's honesty, according to recent polls. In an AP-Ipsos poll released today, only 37 percent of respondents approved of Bush's handling of his job as president, and the same percentage approved of his handling of Iraq. A minority of those polled described him as "honest" and "ethical," 42 percent and 47 percent, respectively, and 82 percent described him as "stubborn."

Much of Bush's address today was essentially the same speech he gave three times in October on the war on terrorism. But he departed from his previous remarks when he launched into a pointed rebuttal of recent criticism from Democratic leaders who charge that his administration twisted prewar intelligence to justify invading Iraq in March 2003.

"When I made the decision to remove Saddam Hussein from power, Congress approved it with strong bipartisan support," Bush said. He said critics who "didn't support the liberation of Iraq" have the right to express their views.
"While it's perfectly legitimate to criticize my decisions or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began," Bush added. "Some Democrats and antiwar critics are now claiming we manipulated the intelligence and misled the American people about why we went to war." He said a Senate investigation "found no evidence of political pressure" on U.S. intelligence assessments of Iraqi weapons programs.

In addition, Bush said, "intelligence agencies from around the world agreed with our assessment" of Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, and the United Nations "passed more than a dozen resolutions citing his development and possession of weapons of mass destruction."

Bush said many of his critics supported his opponent in the 2004 election, Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.), whom he did not mention by name in today's speech. He cited Kerry's statement in support of the October 2002 resolution, noting that the senator said he considered Iraqi weapons of mass destruction a "grave threat" to U.S. security.

"That's why more than a hundred Democrats in the House and the Senate, who had access to the same intelligence, voted to support removing Saddam Hussein from power," Bush said. "The stakes in the global war on terror are too high, and the national interest is too important, for politicians to throw out false charges. These baseless attacks send the wrong signal to our troops and to an enemy that is questioning America's will.

"As our troops fight a ruthless enemy determined to destroy our way of life, they deserve to know that their elected leaders who voted to send to them to war continue to stand behind them," Bush said to cheers from the assembled soldiers. "Our troops deserve to know that this support will remain firm when the going gets tough. And our troops deserve to know that . . . whatever our differences in Washington, our will is strong, our nation is united and we will settle for nothing less then victory."

The 2002 congressional resolution cited by Bush referred to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and said Iraq threatened U.S. and international security because it continued "to possess and develop a significant chemical and biological weapons capability," was "actively seeking a nuclear weapons capability," and was "supporting and harboring terrorist organizations."

Subsequent investigations have shown that Iraq had nothing to do with the Sept. 11 attacks, had no stockpiles of chemical or biological weapons and did not have an active nuclear weapons program.

The resolution did not mention Saddam Hussein or express a goal of removing him from power. Nor did it specifically refer to an invasion or occupation of Iraq. Instead, it authorized the president to use the U.S. military to "defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq" and to "enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions regarding Iraq."

In today's speech, Bush also sharpened his criticism of Iraq's neighbor to the west, Syria. After repeating past descriptions of Iran and Syria as "allies of convenience" of radical Islamic terrorists, Bush singled out Syria for taking "two disturbing steps" this week.

"First, it arrested Dr. Kamal Labwani for serving as an advocate for democratic reform," Bush said. "Then President [Bashar] Assad delivered a strident speech that attacked both the Lebanese government" and a U.N. investigation into the February assassination of Lebanon's former prime minister, Rafiq Hariri. That investigation implicated top Syrian officials in the killing.

Bush called on Syria to "cooperate fully" with the U.N. investigation and to "stop trying to intimidate and destabilize the Lebanese government."

He added, "The government of Syria must stop exporting violence and start importing democracy."

Veterans Never Forgotten

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States when men were free.” -- Ronald Reagan

Article about the travelling exhibit here:

This was up close to a place called Wonder Beach. The sand was white, just white. The sand reflected up the heat, and this was the middle of the day. You see how my dog had his tongue hung out. He was close to passing out. I said, 'I can't walk him anymore' so we got on a track vehicle, and it's got 106 mm Recoilless rifles on it.

My dog was one of the first dogs in Vietnam. His name was Mutsu. He would not walk into anything. If it was there, he'd let you know. He was good with personnel. He could find caches of ammo, food, and he was good with mines. The reason I am here today is because of him.

These three Americans have been to hell. But we can help them back. It's time to turn the heat up under the comfy chairs of the armchair quarterbacks who got them into this mess.

Jack Idema, Brent Bennett and Eddie Caraballo were declared innocent of the trumped up charges against them in court in Afghanistan in March of 2005. They should be released. The American government is now standing in the way of their freedom, and this is a travesty of justice.

All three Americans are now languishing at the infamous Pulacharke prison. But they are still alive, no thanks to the American government or the FBI.

Peter Bergen, the author of Holy War, Inc. and "Shadow Warrior" at Rolling Stone Magazine said in his interview at NPR:

Pulacharke prison where he and his two colleagues are, Brent Bennett and Ed Caraballo, is–you wouldn't wish this on your worst enemy. I spent 5 days there, that was plenty. It's the equivalent of the Leavenworth of Afghanistan, it's–a lot of Taliban, members of Al Qaeda are in there. In fact, there was a prison riot in December where 4 of the Al Qaeda-linked prisoners tried to kill the American prisoners and ended up killing 4 prison guards. So it's a dangerous place, it's an unpleasant place, they are serving some pretty hard time there.

Hard time is right...this is why we need to get them the hell OUT OF THERE. Below is a portion of a statement from the SuperPatriots at the website, but I want you to bear in mind that there is no excuse for leaving these guys there even though they're trying to maintain a "stiff upper lip". These men were declared innocent of the charges by the Afghan Supreme Court in a second closed-door session between January and March of 2005, they should be released.

We are living pretty well now, all things considered. It is one of the most infamous prisons in the world, where more than 20,000 people were executed by the Russians, and God knows how many by the Taliban. But the fact is, that our friends here, the officers that know what really went down in our case, treat us pretty darn good. Sure, there are lots of things we don't have, and lots of things we wish we had, but all in all, we turned the tables on our enemies, and did it with no small help from our Northern Alliance friends, the men who were loyal to America against al-Qaida and the Taliban, and remain loyal to America and us.

Back at the FBI-NDS Saderat facility that is used to "legally" torture anyone and everyone they choose to, we were not allowed any contact with each other, family, friends, or the outside world. We were tortured, beaten unmercifully, chained, burned, some of us electrocuted for days, and starved with just two cups of rice and a piece of bread each day. Now, at Pulacharke Prison, they place few restrictions on us and help us as best they can.

It is surrounded by mountains and deserts and multiple walls. In the past 100,000 prisoners were housed here. It is not a place you want to be. But for us, we have little to complain about; the officers here treat us well. Pulacharke is called impenetrable, but as they teach you in Special Forces SERE School, nothing really is.

Sorry for the ranting and raving, but you know how things get when you're in the world's most infamous prison surrounded by 500 al-Qaida terrorists trying to kill you 24 hours a day. Actually, you probably don't. Well, try to imagine.

Courage Forward,

Here are the facts. Al-Qaeda tried to kill Jack and the others on December 17, 2004 in what some (like Peter Bergen) are categorizing as a "prison riot". In the process, two Iraqis, one Arab, and one Pakistani terrorist were killed. Another Arab terrorist, who was critically wounded, survived. Four Afghan military officers were killed defending the SuperPatriots. Two of them were very close friends of Jack and his men, including Colonel Sherzaman, who ran into the middle of the terrorists with just one magazine of bullets. The Colonel killed two and wounded one. The remaining terrorists critically wounded the Colonel, and then executed him twenty yards from the SuperPatriots. Northern Alliance Generals quickly came to Jack's aid and rescued the unarmed Americans as they held off 300 terrorists with barricades.

This "prison riot" was orchestrated by members of Al Qaeda to kill the Americans at Pulacharke prison.

This is the beginning of the Free Jack campaign.

To join the campaign, email Cao from Cao's Blog and tell her you want to join the Free Jack Idema blogburst.

We will be blogging on this every Wednesday until he and his team are released, and when they are, we'll be blogging about a congressional hearing.

I will maintain an email list, and will email you the post of the week along with a picture (if there is one for that week) to host at your blog.

Join the fight. No American should ever have to worry about ending up in this predicament ever again. But first, we must make sure they get home safely and in one piece.

12 Days Later French Government Does Something

Finally, after twelve days, the French Government decides to do something......State of Emergency Declared in France

Associated Press Writer


President Jacques Chirac declared a state of emergency Tuesday, paving the way for curfews to be imposed on riot-hit cities and towns in an extraordinary measure to halt France's worst civil unrest in decades after 12 nights of violence.

Police, meanwhile, said overnight unrest Monday-Tuesday, while still widespread and destructive, was not as violent as previous nights.

"The intensity of this violence is on the way down," National Police Chief Michel Gaudin said, citing fewer attacks on public buildings and fewer direct clashes between youths and police. He said rioting was reported in 226 towns across France, compared to nearly 300 the night before.

The state-of-emergency decree _ invoked under a 50-year-old law _ allows curfews where needed and will become effective at midnight Tuesday, with an initial 12-day limit. Police _ massively reinforced as the violence has fanned out from its initial flash point in the northeastern suburbs of Paris _ were expected to enforce the curfews. The army has not been called in.

Nationwide, vandals burned 1,173 cars, compared to 1,408 vehicles Sunday-Monday, police said. A total of 330 people were arrested, down from 395 the night before

Local officials "will be able to impose curfews on the areas where this decision applies," Chirac said at a Cabinet meeting. "It is necessary to accelerate the return to calm."

The recourse to a 1955 state-of-emergency law that dates back to France's war in Algeria was a measure both of the gravity of mayhem that has spread to hundreds of French towns and cities and of the determination of Chirac's sorely tested government to quash it.

Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin said curfew violators could be sentenced to up to two months imprisonment, adding that restoring order "will take time."

"We are facing determined individuals, structured gangs," Villepin told parliament on Tuesday. He vowed that France will "guarantee public order to all of our citizens."

Nationwide, vandals overnight burned 1,173 cars, compared to 1,408 vehicles Sunday to Monday, police said. A total of 330 people were arrested, down from 395 the night before.

The violence erupted on Oct. 27 as a localized riot in a northeast Paris suburb angry over the accidental deaths of two teenagers, of Mauritanian and Tunisian descent, who were electrocuted while hiding from police in a power substation.

It has grown into a nationwide insurrection by disillusioned suburban youths, many French-born children of immigrants from France's former territories like Algeria. France's suburbs have long been neglected and their youth complain of a lack of jobs and widespread discrimination, some of it racial.

The violence claimed its first victim Monday, with the death of a 61- year-old man beaten into a coma last week. Foreign governments have warned tourists to be careful in France. Apparent copycat attacks have spread to Belgium and Germany, where cars were burned. France is using fast-track trials to punish rioters, worrying some human rights campaigners.

The resort to curfews drew immediate criticism from Chirac's political opponents. Former Socialist Prime Minister Laurent Fabius said the emergency measures must be "controlled very, very closely."

Communist Party leader Marie-George Buffet said the decree could enflame rioters. "It could be taken anew as a sort of challenge to carry out more violence," she said.

Rioters in the southern city of Toulouse ordered passengers off a bus, then set it on fire and pelted police with gasoline bombs and rocks. Youths also torched another bus in the northeastern Paris suburb of Stains, national police spokesman Patrick Hamon said.

Outside Paris in Sevran, a junior high school was set ablaze, while in the suburb of Vitry-sur-Seine youths threw gasoline bombs at a hospital, Hamon said. Nobody was injured.

Rioters also attacked a police station with gasoline bombs in Chenove, in Burgundy's Cote D'Or, Hamon said. A nursery school in Lille-Fives, in northern France, was set on fire, regional officials said.

In terms of material destruction, the unrest is France's worst since World War II. Never has rioting struck so many French cities simultaneously, said security expert Sebastian Roche, a director of research at the state-funded National Center for Scientific Research.

Twenty-Two, Forever - Specialist Hoby Frank Bradfield Jr.

“Day by day, fix your eyes upon the greatness of Athens, until you become filled with the love of her; and when you are impressed by the spectacle of her glory, reflect that this empire has been acquired by men who knew their duty and had the courage to do it.” - Thucydides, The Funeral Speech for Pericles

Hoby Bradfield Jr. graduated high school in 2001 in Virginia Beach, VA. Immediately after witnessing the World Trade Center towers fall from his home in New Jersey, he called a recruiter and enlisted in the US Army. A member of the warrior caste, Bradfield's father was a retired Navy veteran, his older brother an Army Cavalry Scout and his younger brother is now a Marine.

Hoby left his home and entered the Army on August 20th, 2002. He trained to be a Cavalry Scout and was assigned to the Sabre Squadron of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment at Fort Carson, Colorado. In a few short months, Bradfield went from raw recruit to leader among his peers.

Not long after joining the famed regiment, the 3rd ACR was sent to Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom I. There, Hoby Bradfield earned a reputation for being a fierce Scout. As a Private First Class he was awarded the ARMCOM with V device for valor in combat and had been recommended for two Bronze Stars.

After returning from OIF, Hoby met a girl, Crystin, fell in love and got married. He also trained to be a Combat Life Saver.

Crystin became pregnant and Hoby was thrilled.

"...not even subzero temperatures at downrange Fort Carson can keep the smile from a man’s face when he tells his best friends he’s going to be a father,” said 1st Lt. Brian Oman, Bradfield's Troop platoon leader.

He knew the day would come when the regiment would back to Iraq. Even though Crystin was pregnant, Bradfield volunteered to go back to Iraq.

On July 9th, 2005, Grim Troop of the 2nd Squadron moved into a neighborhood in Tal Afar to destroy a terrorist bombing cell. During the cordon and search, one of Bradfield's team was hit and, as one of the Combat Life Savers, he raced to perform first aid. Then, Specialist Bradfield was shot.

Medics were called to the battle. They stabilized Hoby, put him on the ambulance and raced to the hospital.

Terrorists were watching. They detonated an IED and destroyed the ambulance instantly killing Hoby and the medic that was saving his life, PFC Eric Woods.

"There are troopers in the regiment who most definitely owe their lives to him," LTC Christopher Hickey, Commander, 2nd Squadron, 3rd ACR said about Hoby in the memorial service held in Iraq where over 200 Cav Troopers attended.

On July 26th, 2005, Specialist Hoby Frank Bradfield Jr. was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. Eric Woods family attended the memorial in Virginia and the burial at Arlington.

On September 3rd, Crystin Bradfield gave birth to Kloe Adell Bradfield who is the spittin' image of her dad.

My thoughts and prayers are with Hoby's family.

Today would have been Hoby's twenty-third birthday........................... He will be 22 Forever............

Guard Our Borders

This is what immigrants should be told when they come into our country.

“In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

The terror in France this week by Muslim gangs has to do with their “political correctness” and the “salad bowl” theory, that people don’t have to assimilate in order to live in France. This “political correctness” has permeated our culture, too. And you need only look across the pond to see the disastrous results of multicultural liberalism.

Beyond both of these issues related to immigrants, is the border control problem. From Cal Thomas at Townhall:

The Bush Administration would have us believe that most illegal immigrants (or “undocumented workers” in the lingo of political correctness) are merely looking for a better life and taking only those jobs that Americans do not want.

Kerry Morales isn’t buying that line. “Maybe 20 years ago the illegals were innocent, hard-working people,” she tells the San Antonio Express-News. “Not any more. Now they’re extremely dangerous. They mean violence.”

Morales, a South Texas rancher, says illegal immigrants have cut down her fences, stolen her pickup truck and broken into her home, once invading her bedroom and nearly strangling her. She says they fled after she reached for her gun.

Rather than complain to authorities, who seem unable or unwilling to stem the tide, Morales joined hundreds of other volunteers from across the country along a 20-mile stretch of the Arizona-Mexico border where they intend to help the Border Patrol spot illegals and reduce their number.

It’s a dangerous policy to allow our borders to go unprotected and unchecked. We should be standing vigilant and guarding our borders.

Terry Dillard has a great video he made regarding this issue over at Right Track blog.

Stamps Honoring Marines

Postal service to release exclusive USMC Stamps
Submitted by: MCRD San Diego

MARINE CORPS RECRUIT DEPOT SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Oct. 28, 2005) -- In honor of the 230th anniversary of the United States Marine Corps, the U.S. Postal Service is scheduled to release the U.S. Marine Corps Heritage Collection of four distinguished Corps postage stamps.

Purchase of the stamps will be available exclusively on Marine Corps installations Nov. 10 at $7.40 for a book of 20 stamps. Other post offices will begin sale of the stamps on Nov. 11.

Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., and Marine Barracks, Washington, D.C., are scheduled to host the unveiling ceremonies Nov. 10. Brig. Gen. Michael Lehnert, Commanding General Marine Corps Installations West, is scheduled to speak at the West Coast event.

Each of the stamps features a picture of the respective Marine Corps hero and the military insignia of the unit with which he is most identified.

The John Basilone stamp features a detail of a 1943 photograph of Basilone and the insignia of the 5th Marine Division. Basilone served and died with the 1st Battalion, 27th Marine Regiment, 5th Marine Division during the invasion of Iwo Jima in February 1945.

The Daniel J. Daly stamp features a detail from a circa 1919 photograph of Daly and the insignia of the 73rd Machine Gun Company, which is a variation on the Army's 2nd Infantry Division insignia. During World War I, Daly served as a Marine with the 73rd Machine Gun Company in the 2nd Infantry Division.

The John A. Lejeune stamp features a detail from a circa 1924 photograph of Lejeune. The stamp also depicts the insignia of the Army's 2nd Infantry Division, which Lejeune commanded during World War I.

The Lewis B. Puller stamp features a photograph of Puller at Koto-ri, Korea, in 1950, and the insignia of the 1st Marine Division. Puller was a battalion commander and regimental commander with the 1st Marine Division during World War II and the Korean War.

Basilone, also known as "Manila John," fought on Guadalcanal with the 1st Marine Division in 1942 and received the Medal of Honor for his heroism.

Daly is one of only two Marines in history to receive the Medal of Honor twice for separate acts of heroism.

Lt. Gen. Lejuene was the first Marine to command an Army Division and later became the 13th Commandant of the Marine Corps.

Lt. Gen. Puller was a battalion and regimental commander with 1st Marine Division during World War II and the Korean War, and he earned five Navy Crosses.

The commemorative stamps will be printed only once and will be available for one year after being issued, according to USPS officials.

The Marine Corps specially produced two postmarks of the 1st Marine Division Fleet Marine Force unit insignia and the Camp Pendleton base insignia for the stamps. The postmarks are specific to Camp Pendleton and will only be available there and Washington, D.C.

"The special postmarks will be available on base for 30 days after the event and never again," said Mike Cannone, a USPS public affairs representative.

Also available for purchase is a U.S. Marine Corps silver dollar with a memorial of the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima on one side and the Corp's emblem on the other side.

"We are honored to be the first military service to receive a commemorative coin issued by the United States Mint. And we are particularly pleased that proceeds from this coin will help build the Marine Corps National Museum in Quantico (Va.)," said Marine Corps Assistant Commandant, Gen. William L. Nyland.

My Response Regarding My Post About US Marine Corporal Jeffrey B. Starr

I have received emails and also a response to my poster called.......
"New York Times Doctoring GI's Quotes!"
It is a little further down on my blog. The emails I received asked me pretty much the same questions as the comment that was posted under that topic.
One thing that stood out was this question........"What you said about 52 per cent of Americans voting to stay the course in 2004 and your wondering why no one is enlisting to help us win"...

This is my response ......

You say US Marine Corporal Jeffrey B. Starr, should not have served the extra tours in Iraq and come home to his girlfriend and family.

But you are not letting Starr decide for himself. I know several soldiers that right now are serving their 2nd and some their 3rd tours in Iraq. Why? Because they WANT to, because they have seen the difference they are making in Iraq.

As far as recruiting back here at home being low as you said…..

Well if you have noticed the LEFT, the Democrats, the anti-American scum with the help of the Media are screaming in the press, at street corners at Protest rallies, at Walter Reed Hospital (where our Military has gone to heal to be treated for their wounds), at Recruiting Offices (where they wanting to serve are screamed at as they walk in, made to feel they are horrible people for wanting to serve our country)….YES all over the place!

They LEFT again with the help from the Media keep saying our troops go to an "illegal war" and "kill innocent people"! They are filled in with so much anti-America propaganda in high school and college nowadays that it would seem almost impossible to get a "patriotic" emotion.

I would think that if they could see the pride of what American troops have accomplished in Afghanistan and Iraq, it might help, but where would they see that??? Most certainly NOT the Media. No way jose!

Most potential recruits know that there's a good chance they'll end up in Iraq within a year. We're going on our fourth year of active warfare, and it's tough sledding, recruiting wise. Even in WWII, a "popular" war, most people didn't volunteer, they waited to get drafted.

Then there is another thing….. I wish our Government would pay the soldiers fighting on the ground much more then they are making now. And get away from this promising of benefits crap…. make it real cash, aka increasing salary.

When the invasion started, every time our soldiers ran into a firefight, the media tried to portray it as the worst military disaster since Custer's Last Stand. Prior to the Jan 30th election, the MSM had many people believing that most Iraqis were not going to participate. Whenever our soldiers and marines engage the enemy in battle, the vast majority of times the MSM reports our casualties but not the enemies. The liberal media also fails to mention that we have won nearly all of these battles.

Here is the bottom line: the enemy has failed to accomplish nearly all of his objectives. The enemy failed to prevent the fall of Saddam Hussein. The enemy has failed to prevent free elections. The enemy has failed to start a civil war among the Shittes, Kurds, and Sunnis. The enemy has failed to generate a popular upraising against Coalition forces. The enemy has failed to prevent thousands of freedom loving Iraqis from volunteering for the new army and security forces despite desperate attempts of violate intimidation. The enemy has failed to prevent Bush's reelection. The enemy has failed to prevent America and her allies from driving him from his strongholds like Fallujah. Finally, the enemy has failed to drive America from Iraq. And we ain't leaving until we win!

What you need to realize is that you have not lost a war simply because the enemy shots back. You have not lost a war simply because it takes some years. People need to re-read about our struggles against determined foes such as the British Imperial Army, the Nazis, the Japanese army, and the communist North Korean army.
We won these wars, and many others, because we had determined leadership in Washington that supported our troops. The Bush Administration is showing that same support and millions of Americans are showing that support too. If it weren’t for the damned Media giving the mic to their socialist, un-American, haters of America their endless 15 minutes of fame you would be more aware of the truth about what awesome things our troops have done and are doing in this war against Islam.

But first I want to thank all those that truly are serving now............OUR AWESOME MILITARY!

Theodore's World Has A Special Thank You......


I want to thank Big Dog for the awesome poem he wrote to Cao and I. WoW!

And I would also like to thank Cao for her kindness to me and all the hard work she has done, I mean to tell you she is doing tremendous work on keeping the facts all together about Jack Idema. And a big ole thank you to Jack Idema too and like Big Dog all the other Marines! OOHRAH! Thank you Marines!

This is the Poem that Big Dog wrote.......

Don’t Go Off Half Cocked

Guns don’t kill, people do what is all the strife?
If they took away all the guns out there, there’d still be loss of life
Criminals don’t obey the law, that’s how they got that name
As long as we let them on the streets, the outcome will be the same
Will a million laws against a thing make criminals refrain?
With all the laws against it, they still use cocaine
Twenty-thousand, that’s the number, of gun laws on the books
To let honest people have the guns and to keep them from the crooks
But now they’ll take guns from everyone, they say it keeps law and order
That’s like throwing out the baby, along with its bath water
No matter what happens we’ll always have our precious Second Amendment
And as long as liberals have their way, we’ll need to stand up and defend it
A man’s home is his castle, but it’s getting out of reach
Because of all the social problems, he’s always under seige
So let’s thank God our founding fathers, had the common sense
To allow the average citizen, a means of self defense
It might not be the answer, but it’s a start that will not fail
At least until all the criminals, are tucked away in jail
- author Big Dog

"Some people live an entire lifetime wondering if they've made a difference in the world, Marines don't have that problem." ~ President Ronald Regan

Do not attack the First Marine Division. Leave the yellowlegs alone. Strike the American Army" ~ Orders given to Communist troops in the Korean War; shortly afterward, the Marines were ordered to not wear their khaki leggings to keep the enemy from immediately fleeing.

"Marines are about the most peculiar breed of human beings I have ever witnessed. They treat their service as if it was some kind of cult, plastering their emblem on almost everything they own, making themselves up to look like insane fanatics with haircuts to ungentlemanly lengths, worshipping their Commandant almost as if he was a god, and making weird animal noises like a band of savages. They'll fight like rabid dogs at the drop of a hat just for the sake of a little action, and are the cockiest SOB's I have ever known. Most have the foulest mouths and drink well beyond man's normal limits, but their high spirits and sense of brotherhood set them apart and , generally speaking, of the United States Marines I've come in contact with, are the most professional soldiers and the finest men I have had the pleasure to meet."
~ An Anonymous Canadian Citizen

"The man who will go where his colors will go, without asking, who will fight a phantom foe in a jungle and mountain range, without counting, and who will suffer and die in the midst of incredible hardship, without complaint, is still what he has always been, from Imperial Rome to sceptered Britain to Democratic America. He is the stuff of which legions are made. His pride is his colors and his regiment, his training hard and thorough and coldly realistic, to fit him for what he must face, and his obedience is to his orders. As a legionary, he held the gates of civilization for the classical world...he has been called United States Marine." ~ Lieutenant Colonel T.R. Fehrenbach, US Army in "This Kind of War"

"Retreat, hell we just got here!" ~ Captain Lloyd Williams, USMC at the Battle of Belleau Wood WWI

"Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on the defense. They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat." ~ RAdm. "Jay' R. Stark, U.S. Navy

"We're surrounded? Good, now we can kill the bastards in any direction."
~ Colonel Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller; Korean War

Don't you forget that you're First Marines! Not all the communists in H*ll can overrun you!
- Col. Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller, USMC rallying his First
Marine Regiment near Chosin Reservoir, Korea, December 1950

We're not retreating, Hell! We're just attacking in a different direction! -(GEN. OLIVER SMITH, USMC)

I can't say enough about the two Marine divisions. If I use words like brilliant, it would really be an under-description of the absolutely superb job they did in breaching the so-called impenetrable barrier. . .Absolutely superb operation, a textbook, and I think it'll be studied for many, many years to come as the way to do it. -(General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, USA, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 27 February 1991.)

I think the discipline I got in the Marine Corps made me discipline myself when I was training for fights. A lot of guys want to do things, but they don't want to pay the price for it. I was able to, and the Marine Corps had a lot to do with it. -(Carmen Basiho, former World Welterweight and Middleweight boxing champion.)

The deadliest weapon in the world is a MARINE and his rifle! -(GEN. PERSHING, US.ARMY)

I liked being in the Marines. They gave me discipline I could live with. By the time I got out, I was able to cope with things on a more realistic level. -(Steve McQueen, Hollywood movie star.)

I was a model Marine.. My rifle was always clean, uniform always starched, and the shoes always shined. I guess that's how I became so neat-sort of the Felix Unger of baseball roomates. Blame it on the Marines. -(Jay Johnstone, author, broadcaster and former major league outfielder.)

I've always been proud of being a Marine. I won't hesitate to defend the Corps. -(Jonathan Winters, Comic Television star.)

It's TIME to show our true character as a nation.One nation...under God...fighting for the "right stuff". And it is our military who are going to pay the bill. Hey all you warriors "over there" ...KILL ONE FOR THIS OLD JARHEAD!
Semper fi,
Major Bill Donahue USMC Ret

The count is in. Those Marines responding to the American
Courage Newsletter who are in favor of kicking the a** of
"So-d*mn" (credit to Wayne "Road" Halstead), Al-Qaeda, Bin-Laden,
France, etc, etc.: One Billion, Seven Hundred and Ninety Five
Million, Four Hundred and Ten Thousand, Six Hundred and Ninety
Five. Those opposed: Eight. Troops it is time to lock and
load! You eight who don't have the heart for it thank you
for your input. Now step to the rear of the formation and
report for Mess Duty. The Gunny has some items he wants to
discuss with you. I am too old to go and if I had to go I'd
be just as excited, apprehensive, keyed up, quiet, talkative
and sad as I was when I went to Viet Nam. But I'd go at the
drop of a hat. I'm not trying to cause someone else's loved
one go into harm's way. However, the time for talk is recorded
as having been ten years. The time is up. This time we have
a leader who is serious. Those who don't think he is are in
serious hurt. The threat is real. My fear for my family,
friends, countrymen and Nation is real and growing. It is
time to eliminate this threat to our National existence. I'm
requesting transfer to Major Bill Donahue's unit. I read his
comments in Newsletter #36 and I am with him! Major you tell
me the rally point and I'll be standing tall with you. I'm
not as lean but I am still as mean and that will count for
something. Semper-Fi. God Bless all of our troops and
Heaven have mercy on our enemies. The Marines won't.

New York Times Doctoring GI's Quotes!

I must be a positive thinker, because I keep thinking the lies from the Media might one day stop. They might see the light and change their wicked, wicked ways. But it just is not going to happen in my lifetime or anyone else's!

The New York Times has taken the words of a U.S. soldier who was killed in Iraq to make it seem that he thought his mission was senseless. The truth is exactly the opposite.

Here are the words from US Marine Corporal Jeffrey B. Starr in a letter he had written to his girlfriend.................

"Obviously if you are reading this then I have died in Iraq. I kind of predicted this, that is why I'm writing this in November. A third time just seemed like I'm pushing my chances. I don't regret going, everybody dies but few get to do it for something as important as freedom. It may seem confusing why we are in Iraq, it's not to me. I'm here helping these people, so that they can live the way we live. Not have to worry about tyrants or vicious dictators. To do what they want with their lives. To me that is why I died. Others have died for my freedom, now this is my mark."

And this is the version that the NYT's had.....................

Sifting through Corporal Starr's laptop computer after his death, his father found a letter to be delivered to the marine's girlfriend. "I kind of predicted this," Corporal Starr wrote of his own death. "A third time just seemed like I'm pushing my chances."

The letter was sent to Michelle Malkin. And at Mudville Gazette, Grayhawk also takes a look back on a few examples of the New York Times attacks on American GIs in the past. Kelli Pundit talks about it too.

This Virus Has Already Killed Thousands In The World

Victor David Hanson
November 04, 2005
The Real Global Virus
The plague of Islamism keeps on spreading

...."there is an emboldened sense that the jihadists can get away with their crimes based on three perceptions:

(1) Squabbling and politically correct Westerners are decadent and outnumber the U.S. Marines, and ascendant Islamicism resonates among millions of Muslims who feel sorely how far they have fallen behind in the new globalized world community — and how terrorism and blackmail, especially if energized by nuclear weapons or biological assets, might leapfrog them into a new caliphate.

(2) Sympathetic Muslim-dominated governments like Malaysia or Indonesia will not really make a comprehensive effort to eradicate radical Islamicist breeding grounds of terror, but will perhaps instead serve as ministries of propaganda for shock troops in the field.

(3) Autocratic states such as Pakistan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Iran share outright similar political objectives and will offer either stealthy sanctuary or financial support to terrorists, confident that either denial, oil, or nuclear bombs give them security .

Meanwhile, Westerners far too rarely publicly denounce radical Islam for its sick, anti-Semitic, anti-female, anti-American, and anti-modernist rhetoric. Just imagine the liberal response if across the globe Christians had beheaded schoolgirls, taken over schoolhouses to kill students, and shot school teachers as we have witnessed radical Muslims doing these past few months."

They Are Not Expendable !

Update on Jack Idema and Task Force Saber 7

Breaking News- November 1, 2005- Idema Saved the Life of Afghanistan's New Prime Minister- FBI trying to stop Idema from talking about the assassination plot.

Voice of Mujahadeen prints new edition calling for the release of Idema for the fourth time in 30 days. Major Afghan newspaper quotes Afghan Supreme Court and Appeals Court Judges saying Idema and team were "completely innocent of all charges." Editor being safeguarded in the Panjshir Valley and printing more papers in an undisclosed location.

The latest issue of the Voice of the Mujahadeen, is now calling for the resignation of the highest Supreme Court justice in Afghanistan, Sheik Faiz Shinwari. The paper has also attacked NDS Judge Abdul Basset Bakhtyari calling him a war criminal and citing a United Nations special report on the Afghan justice system. The United Nations High Commission for Human Rights has twice called for Bakhtyari’s resignation and arrest.

Last week, the independent newspaper published by the Massoud Hero Foundation, and the Mujahadeen and Martyrs Group called for the immediate release of American Jack Idema and his Northern Alliance anti-terrorist team.

According to Appeals Court High Judge Saib Noor, the Court also ordered the release of Lieutenant Wahid Rasuli Banderas, an agent of the Afghan CIA, and one of the men imprisoned with Idema.

Banderas refused to leave Idema's side and has remained in prison with Idema since then.

In February 2005 Idema and his team were found innocent of entering the county illegally when the Appeals Court saw video of their passports being handed to Customs Officials and Border Police.

In March 2004, the three Americans remaining in prison were found innocent of all charges after an undercover tape was played in which their accusers admitted there was no torture and that it was “all a show for the press.” A second tape was played with the terrorists discussing their plans to bomb Bagram Air base, the US airfield north of Kabul, and plotting to kill several national leaders. Idema and his men were still not released.

In July 2004 “Mr. Jack” was charged with entering the country illegally, torturing innocent Afghan civilians, and running a private jail. The paper contained the text of secret American government letters to President Hamid Karzai and classified letters during the 2001 war. It also contained pictures of Idema rescuing Afghan children and a two-page story on the terrorists that Idema's team captured. The Voice of the Mujahadeen called them “national heroes.”

How is Jack being treated?
The US Consul saw so many bruises, lacerations, and burns on Jack that she almost threw up. Jack of course, had no problem stripping for her and making sure she saw all the marks. Then she waited two weeks to send a doctor, ordered the report.(Jack had two partially detached retinas from the concussions to his head and blows to his temples), then she (Sandra Ingram) said she would file a formal complaint, and instead told the Taliban guards who promptly handcuffed and beat Jack unconscious again when she left. These guys were burned, beaten, electrocuted, drugged, and beat with sticks and cables (metal whips the Taliban became famous for). The US Counsel and Ambassador knew all about it, and the FBI laughed about it.


Osama Bin Laden, your time is short.
We'd rather you die, than come to court.
Why are you hiding if it was in God's name?
Your just a punk with a turban; a pathetic shame.
I have a question, about your theory and laws.
"How come you never die for the cause?"
Is it because you're a coward who counts on others?
Well here in America, we stand by our brothers.
As is usual, you failed in your mission.
If you expected pure chaos, you can keep on wishing
Americans are now focused and stronger than ever
Your death has become our next endeavor.
What you tried to kill, doesn't live in our walls.
It's not in buildings or shopping malls. If all of
our structures came crashing down.
It would still be there, safe and sound.
Because pride and courage can't be destroyed.
Even if the towers leave a deep void.
We'll band together and fill the holes.
We'll bury our dead and bless their souls.
But then our energy will focus on you.
And you'll feel the wrath of the Red, White and Blue.
So slither and hide like a snake in the grass.
Because America's coming to kick your ass!!!
Author ~ Lorie Terrell

Wild Thing’s Comment…..I will never forget 1979 Iran Hostage Crisis, 1983 bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut and the Marine barracks, 1985 Achille Lauro hijacking, 1988 Pan Am 747 Flight 103 Bombing, Lockerbie, 100's murdered, 1992 a Hotel that housed US troops bombed in Yemen, 1993 First World Trade Center bombing, 1993 "Black Hawk Down", on and on and on………
And then Sept. 11, 2005 the Second World Trade Center bombings delivered with two planes, then another plane at the Pentagon, and then Flight 93.

Well America did go and through our awesome firepower, our strong Military did kick their ass. The enemy went from cave to cave hiding and crouching in fear. Moving, always moving trying to avoid getting killed, or caught and put in prison. Jack Idema and Task Force Saber 7 were there, tracking the enemy down, doing what was necessary. There were arrests made, there were terrorists taken prisoner and there were those that were killed as well. Too bad so sad- NOT! Jack Idema and TFS7 along with the rest of our Military gave us action and they answered the call no questions asked. Duty-Honor- Country! And I support our Troops for that as always 1000%!

Special operations and commandos have always been part of military history ever since colonial times. In every conflict since the Revolutionary War, we have employed special people, tactics and strategies to exploit an enemy’s weakness and limitations. These remarkable people with myriad meaningful skills will always be there to carry out these hazardous operations in a cloak of secrecy.

The U.S. government established Project 404 in 1966 to set up a system whereby military personnel could operate covertly in Laos ("in the black") without blatantly breaching the Geneva Accords. Technically our troops were not in Laos because the Individuals in Project 404 were assigned to out of country units generally at Udorn RTAFB or NKP. When they crossed over into Laos, their in-country existence was classified Top Secret from 1964 to1973. Being in the Black allowed these Special Ops personnel to come into country and perform military duties as civilians.
Operating in Laos in this manner could be extremely dangerous. One gave up their rights under the Geneva Convention when they removed the uniform and if caught by the bad guys it could mean certain death.

These men had to learn who to trust in a life-or-death situation and to do the job well, to succeed they had to think like a terrorist. Since Jack and his men were put in prison the US State Department has deserted our Afghan Allies and disavowed Jack Idema and his team leaving them to be tortured for Karzai's political gain! So what is new about that? Nothing and that makes me sick! We all know how our country has left behind the POW’s and MIA’s. We all know that many times, that remains have been sent to families and loved ones and they were not those of the POW that’s name were on the remains. We all know how many Senators, etc. have NOT wanted to keep after countries that have our POW’s and MIA’s, and how they wanted to silence the whole darn thing.

Knowing all of that is it so far fetched that our country is not standing by these men, Jack and Task Force Saber 7? Is it so hard to believe that it might make more targets for the left to use to attack the right regarding a war the left is complaining about till we are nauseous?

America is the greatest country in the world, there is no other like it. But with that also comes responsibility. And in that area of being responsible when it comes to our Military, our Veterans and anyone left behind our GREAT Nation ranks rock bottom. Not that any other country is better in that area, NONE are! The truth is that the USA has freed more human beings in 230 years than the rest of the world combined. America has a provable history of freeing oppressed people all over the world in fighting evil dictators. But with the vast power we have and because we are stronger, we owe those that did the work, that paid the highest price of all, that made personal sacrifices for our country to go where they were sent, to fight so others would know freedom and to keep us free and safe……..well we OWE our Military, we owe men like Jack and his men to stand by them, to fight for them, and in some way pay them back for all they have done.

Don't Dress West If You Know What's Best!

Consider, if you will, the humble mannequin. Where would retail be without those plastic molded women who demonstrate what a dress or pair of pants looks like from all angles? Iranian women soon will soon not have that privilege.

City tackles titillating mannequins

Police in northeastern Iran are launching a new morality drive by confiscating alluring mannequins from boutiques and clothes stalls in the bazaar, authorities in the city of Bojnourd said Monday.
A spokesman for the city's judiciary, who asked not be named, explained the drive would tackle problems of "public chastity." He said 65 mannequins have been impounded so far.
He explained the crack-down on tailors' dummies was part of a larger offensive against anti-social behavior such as vandalism and biker gangs.
Bojnourd owes its traditional religious climate to the nearby shrine city of Mashhad, a focal point of pilgrimage for the world's Shi'ite Muslims.

So what exactly are "alluring mannequins" anyway? Mannequins not wearing a burkha? Mannequins who are not veiled? Mannequins who smile?

The Left Using American Children!

Group organizes walkout by students to protest war

By Nick Perry
Seattle Times staff reporter

A planned student walkout Wednesday to protest the Iraq war is causing friction and uncertainty in some schools. An advocacy group called Youth Against War and Racism is organizing a rally and march in downtown Seattle as part of a national protest on the first anniversary of President Bush's re-election. Organizers, who want high-school students to walk off campus at noon, said they're expecting as many as 2,000 students from 30 schools in Seattle and beyond.

Organizers plan to begin the rally at 1 p.m. at Westlake Center, then at 2 p.m. march to the Capitol Hill Arts Center for workshops, a concert and speeches. School officials are not sanctioning the walkout, which is also meant to protest military recruitment in high schools.

"Obviously our goal is to have students in class," said Peter Daniels, a spokesman with Seattle Public Schools. "Kids are going to have to make decisions about whether they attend. Each school has attendance policies."

If students are absent without parental permission, it will result in a mark against their attendance record, Daniels said. Even with parental permission, some schools will not allow students to be absent for protests, he said. Each school has autonomy in how to deal with such situations, he added.

But protest organizer Carrie Hathorn said that for students, most of whom are too young to vote, walking out of class is one of the few ways to express their political views.

"We let them know that this is an act of civil disobedience, and then let them decide," she said. "There could be punishments or repercussions. It's in the hands of the students.

And Michelle Malkin has more on this as well as past protests using children too.

Wild Thing's Comment.........
So when it is 10 years from now and little Dick and Jane want to cut classes, want to hang out on the street and have no ambition. When they are asked who the President is and they only know the latest pop star and they are 22 years old. We will know who to blame right? YEP you got it! It won't be the Republicans, it will be the Democrats, the left socialist, communist Democrats that are totally and completely to blame!

The sad fact is that these liberals are interferring with the education of these children and thus America's future. Not only that but they are forcing them to protest against our Military and our Country. They are teaching them NOTHING about why we live in a free land, and what it cost our Veterans, our Troops today, our POW's and MIA's. What it cost families of those that fought to let us be a land of the free and stay that way.

Hey Liberals, know what??!!?? The terrorists want you just as dead as they want those of us dead that support the troops. They are not your friends and you have chosen the wrong side to be on. You are Traitors To America! Check it out you Liberal freaks, go to my Traitors to America page at my web site!

His Name Is Jack and He Is A Hero!

He is the soldier, who more than a decade ago first warned the Pentagon about the Russian Mafia selling suitcase nuclear bombs to terrorist supporting nations. Suitcase nuke proliferation is reportedly much worse since Idema first told the Pentagon what he learned from the Lithuanian KGB about the illicit traffic. That story by the way, won major awards when reported by CBS "60 Minutes", though CBS chose not to credit their major source - Jonathan K. Idema.

He is Former Green Beret Sgt. Jonathan Keith Idema, who was known only as "Jack" in Afghanistan. For more details of his extensive background go here.

To Idema, the allied strategy of 'hunkering down' guaranteed defeat against the cunning and nimble Taliban and Al Qaeda. "That's why Alexander lost, that's why the British lost...and we're going to lose too," Idema said at the time. "You can't beat these guys with (conventional forces) and armored tanks. We can only beat them by CIA and Special Forces riding around on...camels and horses, wearing their clothes, eating and hunting (them)."
That, Idema said, was precisely what he and Task Force Saber 7 did.

Please go to Cao's Blog to get a very complete and detailed history of what has been happening to Jack Idema. Of how he and his men were put in prison. You will learn how Jack and his men Task Force Saber 7 were declared innocent of all charges , YEP that was March of 2005 . THIS YEAR and they are still in prison! Read why, it is an amazing and almost hard to believe story except that it is all true! It is NOT a movie that is done in 2 or 3 hours. It is real, it is terrifying and it has to do with men that lived in danger to fight terrorism so that it would not come on our shores again here in the United States of America.

Our enemy and the enemy that Israel has had for over 50 years are one and the same. They follow the Quran, worship death including their own and send their own children off to be suicide bombers. They are all are ALL members of the Muslim Brotherhood !

“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” Motto of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Never forget the things said and why it was so important to have men like Jack and Task Force Saber 7 out there for us, for America.

"Carrying out one of the tenets of our religion and Shari'ah...This war is fundamentally religious...Under no circumstances should we forget this enmity between us and the infidels. For the enmity is based on creed." - Osama Bin Laden

“We do not differentiate between those dressed in military uniforms and civilians; they are all targets in this fatwah.” - Osama Bin Laden

Osama Bin Laden's lieutenant Ayman al-Zawahri has said....""What you have seen, O Americans, in New York and Washington and the losses you are having in Afghanistan and Iraq, in spite of all the media blackout, are only the losses of the initial clashes. If you continue the same policy of aggression against Muslims, God willing, you will see the horror that will make you forget what you had seen in Vietnam."

I read everything I could find to teach myself about Islam, sought out articles and books on how terrorists work and their cells, so many things. That is why I am so shocked when I hear someone, anyone, a civilian, a Politician, anyone in our Government say that Islam is a Religion of Peace and Love. For anyone to use those words referring to Islam is not only lying to the world, but they are also lying to themselves. By saying such things they shred my confidence in them as to their mental state and intelligence. If it is meant to kiss up to the Nation of Islam, to the Muslims living here in America, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan etc. it does not work. It does not change followers of Islam's hate toward infidels and it most certainly angers the hell out of me I can tell you.

Now look every man in my family has served this country. They represent every branch and a few of them were in situations my family could not know where they were, what they were doing, and what mission they were on. You have seen movies of Military operations that no one is supposed to know about and then what happens....the governmdent says I never knew you. It is a deal made in hell for our service men. But they do it and they damn well do it well! Jack took the risks, he and his fellow men. Risks of great danger and he is innocent of charges made against him. Even the court said so, so I want the back slapping politicians, and our Governemnt to stop the BS about this and take care of business not leaving anyone behind, not turning their backs on those fighting terrorism.

To men like Jack and our Military Duty , Honor, Country DO mean something and we need to show them that we know what it means too. How often have any of us said, I know I thknk it every day......My Freedom came at the highest cost of all and I can never repay it . But we can at least try and that means writing letters, making phone calls and doing what we can to get the truth out about men like Jack Idema and Task Force Saber 7.......because they are Heroes! I have met thousands of men and women in the Military over the years and one thing that stands out is that the Oath they took did not stop when they got out of the service. For them it continues even today. So our support should continue as well......never ending, never wavering.
