Redecoration coming

After much consultation with Ted E. Bear, Editor in Chief of the P.C. Free Zone Gazette, Theodore's World has decided to do a little redecorating.

We've got the paint brushes out, there will be a lot of work going on in the background. Hopefully, the heavy lifting behind the scenes won't distrurb your visit. This post will stay at the top while the work is in progress.

If things look a little wonky over the next couple of days, please "bear" with us and, if you're so inclined, leave a note here in the comments about any wonkiness you see.

Laser Technology Ray-Gun For Military In The Works

This image shows Northrop Grumman Corporation's concept of an Future Combat Systems-class Army ground-combat armored vehicle with a solid-state laser that would be used to defeat incoming threats like mortars and rockets.

Strategy Page

The American Northrop Grumman Corporation has just opened the first ray-gun factory. Officially, the plant will build high-energy, solid-state lasers and figure out how to install them in military vehicles. The first weapon being produced is the JHPSSL (Joint High-Power Solid State Laser), a 100 kW solid-state laser. The JHPSSL is to be mounted on armored vehicles and in aircraft. JHPSSL is basically an anti-aircraft and anti-missile system. It has already demonstrated that it can destroy artillery and mortar shells, as well as rockets and cruise missiles. Israel is interested in using JHPSSL as part of its rocket defense system. Ray guns have long been a staple of science fiction, and when the first lasers appeared in the 1950s, science fiction writers just assumed that many of their ray guns were "lasers." All this is not quite science fiction any more, mainly because it will take another decade or so before you have a hand held laser.

And a second link regarding this topic.Northrop Grumman Please continue at this link for more information. Thank you.

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) has been selected to develop "military-grade," solid-state laser technology that is expected to pave the way for the U.S. military to incorporate high-energy laser systems across all services, including ships, manned and unmanned aircraft, and ground vehicles.

Wild Thing's comment......

Ray guns, Rayguns, Reaguns, Reagans, Reagan = Ronaldo Maximus' Strategic Defense Initiative = SDI = Star Wars = Democrats said NO! But now they are doing this so good.

100KW solid state LASER. Talk about your killer lightshow.

Pentagon Stops F-14 Parts Sales Amid Iran Concerns

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Pentagon on Tuesday said it had stopped selling surplus parts for the F-14 fighter jet, saying it was the "right thing to do," given congressional concerns that some parts could land in the hands of Iran.

Iran, which is facing strong Western opposition to its nuclear program, is the only country still flying the F-14, also called the Tomcat, since the U.S. military retired the plane in July.

The Pentagon's Defense Logistics Agency said it halted sales of certain sensitive F-14 parts in February 2006, but the ban now covered all F-14 parts until the government completed a comprehensive review of what to do with them.

"It was the right thing to do," said Dawn Dearden, spokeswoman for the Pentagon agency, citing what she called "the situation in Iran." The West accuses Iran of seeking to build atomic bombs, a charge Tehran denies, saying it only wants to make electricity.

The Pentagon's move took effect on Friday, and came after congressional criticism of security weaknesses that gave buyers for Iran access to the aircraft parts. The agency did not disclose details of those incidents. It formerly held liquidation sales of surplus parts.

The earlier halt in sales affected what the agency called "unique" F-14 parts and those "deemed critical to F-14 operations" that could be used for other aircraft.

Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat and member of the Senate intelligence committee, has written legislation to eliminate all Pentagon sales of F-14 parts saying weaknesses in security allowed buyers for countries including Iran and China to obtain sensitive military equipment, including F-14 parts.

The bill would also ban previous buyers who already had surplus F-14 parts from exporting them to third parties.

To War Protest Freaks ~ Burn In Hell!

In Washington, counterprotesters also converged on the mall in smaller numbers, but the antiwar demonstration was largely peaceful. There were a few tense moments, however, including an encounter involving Joshua Sparling, 25, who was on crutches and who said he was a corporal with the 82nd Airborne Division and lost his right leg below the knee in Ramadi, Iraq. Mr. Sparling spoke at a smaller rally held earlier in the day at the United States Navy Memorial, and voiced his support for the administration’s policies in Iraq. Later, as antiwar protesters passed where he and his group were standing, words were exchanged and one of the antiwar protestors spit at the ground near Mr. Sparling; he spit back. Capitol police made the antiwar protestors walk farther away from the counterprotesters. “These are not Americans as far as I’m concerned,” Mr. Sparling said.

In December 2005, the Iraq war veteran received a disgusting, anti-war death wish card while being treated at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. for injuries from a bomb explosion in Ramadi.

The card front, decorated with patriotic and holiday stamps, was deceptively innocuous. But, when you take a look inside it says "P.S. DIE".

Last month, his right leg was amputated. I posted about it here at this blog and so did countless others with blogs that love and respect our troops and were outraged.

This last weekend, while he was participating in a counter-protest against the traitors and enemy within our country and their convergence, he was spit at by anti-war demonstrators.

Anti-war protesters were allowed to spray paint on part of the west front steps of the United States Capitol building after police were ordered to break their security line by their leadership, two sources told The Hill.

According to the sources, police officers were livid when they were told to fall back by U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) Chief Phillip Morse and Deputy Chief Daniel Nichols. "They were the commanders on the scene," one source said,who requested anonymity. "It was disgusting."

Josh with his girlfriend

What Josh had to say about the protest:

"This march here? I think these are basically people that just don't really understand what's going on. These are what I like to call TV liberals. All they do is watch television and get all their information off of there. If they had any real world experience and actually could see what was going on. They're walking here because of people like me who fight for their freedom and the people that have sacrificed their lives are the real heroes.

If they were in Iraq right now they would be wishing that they could have somebody come in and save them so they could have the same freedoms that we do. They really don't understand that. That's the whole reason I joined because of my nephews and nieces who I loved to grow up in freedom. They can do whatever they want. They can be whatever they want. People in Iraq are taken from their homes. They're captured if they don't agree with their dictatorship. All I'm saying is they're people, too and they deserve the same rights that we as Americans deserve.

They say fighting doesn't solve anything but we would not be here unless the Revolutionary war happenned, World War I, World War II. We'd be speaking German right now. It needs the soldiers They don't understand. They're ignorant and ignorance is bliss, they say. They're caught up in their cause and that's all they see. They're blind."

My story is not too much. I am a regular infantryman. I was over there [Iraq] patrolling the streets. We were taking some cover from some fire and I was looking for a position to defend against and on the way I saw a little hole in the ground with an IED and I warned my troops to get back, back away as fast as possible. They knew they couldn't get a bunch of us. There was a trigger man hiding there in the field. They'd rather get somebody than nobody so he blew me up. That's my story. I'm here a year later. I got amputated a year after my injury and now I'm just recovering, getting better so I can get back out there.

If you want to support the soldiers, you need to support the war because we're all volunteers."

The left was represented by the traitors to America ...just a few of the names:

Democratic Representative Dennis Kucinich
Jessie Jackson
Hanoi Jane
Tim Robbins
Susan Sarandon

Sean Penn ( actor) with Democratic Representative Maxine Waters next to him and communist Code Pink founder Medea Benjamin on the Far Left.

WTF? A mother would do and say this and side with the enemy!

“I’ve got a son who just got out of the military and another still in,” said Jackie Smith, 65, from Sunapee, N.H., whose sign read “Bush Bin Lyin.” “And I’m here because this is all I can do to try to help them.”

A counterprotester, Larry Stark, 71, a retired Navy officer who fought in Vietnam for five years and was a prisoner of war, said....

“We never lost a battle in Vietnam but we lost the war, and the same is going to be true in Iraq if these protesters have their way.”

The protesters on Saturday were undermining troop morale, Mr. Stark said, and increasing the likelihood of a premature withdrawal.

“It’s like we never learn from the past,” he said.

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

The First Amendment is not an excuse for spitting on a wounded Iraq vet or threatening their life. These traitors not only spit on Vets but also called them murderers. And a couple of the traitors threatened to shoot Joshua Sparling. YES they said they would shoot him and there are people from the PRO Troops side ( our side the military said, America's side) of this that have it on tape!!

This is from an email from someone that was there supporting the troops and was there next to Josh.

"There were at least two different people in the leftist crowd who threatened to shoot Josh - I videotaped those incidents. I'm sure I missed alot more, because I was only one person and couldn't be everywhere to catch all of the lame leftist threats and curses."

It is about time the American people woke the hell up! I am sick of this! It made me physically ill to see this shit happening. I had to wait till today to post about it I was too angry, too sick to my stomach to even be able to type anything about it.

OK now get this, how do the enemy within get that many to show up?? They sure as hell did not just leave their homes that day and walk over to the protest. NOPE! They took busses and trains, this fucking thing was well organized to the hilt. And there will be more of them. More planned protests coming you bet cha'! More of the enemy of this country, loathers of our military and users of our freedom for their purpose to attack and slander our troops in the future.

Look at this that is planned for a future protest! GRRRRRRR! They will now desecrate yet another War Memorial. One that they contributed to adding thousands more names on the wall by their by their protests before and Hanoi Jane leading the way back then as she is now! The people elected al Qaeda to control the United States Congress and the left controls the Nazi spit mongers.

From the A.N.S.W.E.R. website

March on the Pentagon, Saturday, March 17,2007
On March 17, 2007, the 4th anniversary of the start of the criminal invasion of Iraq, tens of thousands of people from around the country will descend on the Pentagon in a mass demonstration to demand: U.S. Out of Iraq Now! 2007 is the 40th anniversary of the historic 1967 anti-war march to the Pentagon during the Vietnam War. The message of the 1967 march was "From Protest to Resistance," and marked a turning point in the development of a countrywide mass movement.

In the coming days and weeks, thousands of organizations and individuals will begin mobilizing for the upcoming March on the Pentagon. Organizing committees and transportation centers are being established to bring people to the March on the Pentagon.

The March 17 demonstration will assemble at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (Constitution Gardens) at 12 noon in Washington, D.C.and march to the Pentagon."

HERE is where thousands of them went to make arrangements to get there, check it out! Rides are lisrted by each State, no stone was left unturned to get this to be a big protest for them.

There was a variety of signs made available to protesters before Saturday’s event. The protest was largely organized by the group United for Peace and Justice, a coalition of 1,400 local and national organizations.

Our troops deserve better, their families deserve our support as well. When people protest like this it weakens our country it does not make it stronger. We should be a united front in this war against Islam. Every American should be supporting our troops, thanking them and appreciating what our Veterans have done. To not do so sides with the enemy, an enemy that worships death and has an agenda to own our Nation and kill of anyone that is an infidel.

By their actions, words and what they protest they are my enemy, my enemy just as much as the terrorists are and no less. The other day a woman walking in front of me had a t-shirt on that said…..”Peace through Music not War”. I hope if the day comes this fucking board is kneeling down in front of a row of hooded terrorists with big knives in their hands to behead her they play the music selection of her choice.

Incoming For Those 72 Virgins As 300 Insurgents Killed in Battle

At Least 250 Militants Killed During Battle in Iraq
Fox News

BAGHDAD, Iraq — U.S.-backed Iraqi troops on Sunday attacked insurgents allegedly plotting to kill pilgrims at a major Shiite Muslim religious festival, and Iraqi officials estimated some 250 militants died in the daylong battle near Najaf.

Authorities said Iraqi soldiers supported by U.S. aircraft fought all day with a large group of insurgents in the Zaraq area, about 12 miles northeast of the Shiite holy city of Najaf.

Col. Ali Nomas, spokesman for Iraqi security forces in Najaf, said more than 250 corpses had been found. Iraqi army Maj. Gen. Othman al-Ghanemi also spoke of 250 dead but said an exact number would not be released until Monday. He said 10 gunmen had been captured, including one Sudanese.

The U.S. command announced the arrest of 21 suspected terrorists, including an Al Qaeda courier, in a series of raids in Baghdad and Sunni areas north and west of the capital. Three are believed to have close ties to the leadership of Al Qaeda in Iraq, the military said.

And there is also this story I found really interesting. Cracking down on those helping the insurgents..........

Police chief sacks 1,500 officers

The mayor of Baqouba and 1,500 policemen in Diyala province have been fired in a bid to end the raging violence in the region northeast of Baghdad, the provincial police chief has said. Ghanim al-Qureyshi, who took over police operations in the violent province after his predecessor was sacked last month, said Mayor Khalid Al-Senjeri, a Sunni Muslim, was dismissed over suspicions he was collaborating with Sunni insurgent fighters. Only last week, the mayor was reported kidnapped by Sunni insurgents who blew up his office in Baqouba and stole several new police vehicles. He was released a few days later. Baqouba is the Diyala province capital.

It is now 2:35 a.m. on Monday and this is the latest post from Yahoo News, the number of kills is now up to 300!
U.S., Iraqi forces kill 300 militants in Najaf
The U.S. military said on Monday it was an ongoing operation so it could not provide any details.

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

That mortar fire came from those guys who Al Sadr told us had put all their weapons away. Let's see, how long was his word good for.... three days, maybe? I am not surprised, these people cannot tell the truth. The Quran teaches them to lie.

Putting a bacon wrapped bullet through their brains is just too good a death for them but it is a start.

Prayers for all the troops and great shooting. I love it, it's take down time. The Democrats must be really depressed right now. Too bad....NOT.... I don't feel sorry for them. Bela Pelosi and the Out-House leaders: Rangle, Dangle, Dingle & Bungle and their enforcer, Henry Whacksman were getting ready to go through the de-funding motions.

Instead, they got the first nail in their two-year coffin! LOL

Open their eyes, give 'em bloody hell, brave troops, and God Bless You!!

Death Squad Leaders Flee Iraq Before Surge

Death Squad Leaders Flee Baghdad Ahead of Troop Surge, Former Iraqi Official Says
Fox News

According to Fox News, Death squad leaders have fled Baghdad to evade capture or killing by U.S. and Iraqi forces before the start of the troop "surge" and security crackdown in the capital.

A former senior Iraqi minister said most of the leaders loyal to Muqtada al-Sadr, the radical anti-American cleric, had gone into hiding in Iran.

Among those said to have fled is Abu Deraa, theShiite militia leader whose appetite for sectarian savagery has been compared to that of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, who was killed last year.

The Former minister who did not want to be named, said that Prime Minster Nouri Al-Maliki had encouraged them to leave Baghdad. He further stated that weapons belonging to the Mahdi Army have been hidden inside the Iraqi Interior Ministry to avoid confiscation.
Maliki said last week: "I know that senior criminals have left Baghdad, others have left the country. This is good — this shows that our message is being taken seriously."

The flight from Baghdad could impede American plans to target the leaders of death squads.

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

Is Prime Minster Nouri Al-Maliki helping these death squad leaders leave or what????

John Kerry in Davos Switzerland

Senator from Massachusetts, USA, John Kerry, right and on the large screen, wipes his eye while speaking during a session 'The Future of the Middle East' at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Saturday Jan. 27, 2007.

Kerry criticized the Bush administration's foreign policy during the session, saying it has caused the United States to become 'a sort of international pariah.'

Dutch Iraqi Suspect Flown To US

Dutch Iraqi suspect flown to US

Sunday, 28 January 2007

Dutch authorities say an Iraqi-born Dutch citizen, suspected of plotting attacks on American forces in Iraq, has been extradited to the United States. Wesam al-Delaema was put on a plane and flown to an undisclosed location in the US after losing his final appeal against extradition in December.

He is set to become the first suspect tried in a US court for allegedly plotting attacks on US forces in Iraq.

Mr Delaema denies charges of "possessing a destructive device".

Authorities say the evidence against him includes a videotape he made of Iraqi insurgents preparing a roadside bomb.

In Dutch court hearings, he argued that he was kidnapped and forced to make the video on pain of death.

Unknown destination

Mr Delaema was arrested in May 2005 in the Dutch city of Amersfoort in following a tip from US authorities.

His lawyers have argued that the US has no right to try him. They say they fear he could be tortured and will not get a fair trial.

But a Dutch judge said there was "no reason to believe that the US authorities will not abide by the commitments they have given or... deprive the suspect of his fundamental rights".

The US has given assurances that he will be tried in a federal court, not by a military commission, and can serve any sentence in the Netherlands.

The charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.

A Dutch justice ministry spokesman said on Saturday that Mr Delaema was on his way to somewhere in the US.

"Even if I knew where he is headed, I couldn't say," he said. "It's a matter for the US justice department now."

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

I am for Wesam al-Delaema serving his sentence while he is dead.

Traitors Visit Iraq

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Leads Congressional Fact-Finding Mission to Baghdad

abc news

While President Bush met with military leaders in the Oval Office Friday, she and anti-war Rep. Jack Murtha turned up in Baghdad.

The timing of the trip, from the Bush administration's point of view, couldn't have been worse. It came just days after the president asked Congress in his State of the Union address to give his revised Iraq strategy a chance to work.

On her surprise arrival to the Iraqi capital, the newly-appointed Pelosi met with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki and discussed with him the latest political developments in Iraq together with the preparations underway for the implementation of the new security plan in Iraq.

The Pelosi delegation visited the heavily fortified Green Zone, site of the American Embassy, and met with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

"We come out of the meeting with a greater understanding of the others' point of view," Pelosi, D-Calif., said, in brief remarks after the meeting.
"We stressed our belief that it is well past time for the Iraqis to take primary responsibility for the security of their nation," Pelosi said in a statement after she and the other six members of her delegation met with the Iraqi prime minister and top U.S. officials in Baghdad.

The Congressional delegation includes: -- Rep. Tom Lantos, D-San Mateo, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee
-- Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., chairman of the House Armed Services Committee
-- Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., an outspoken critic of the war and the Bush administration

Wild Thing's comment......

Our troops are fighting a war the last thing they need is to have to play nice with the homegrown enemy as well.

So now the "bad mouthers" want to travel there, get a photo op with soldiers whose mission they bad mouth, who will have to drop everything they do so they can tap dance for Pelosi and her entourage of stooges in Baghdad. Then the soldier loving liberals (who always have an up to date count of dead Americans in their pocket for a quick argument of why Bush is bad) will come back and distort what they saw, talk only of those things that fit their agenda.

This sort of thing is just grandstanding at the expense of a unified U.S. stance on wartime matters. I think it is ridiculous to see these politicians flitting back and forth between here and Iraq or here and Afghanistan as though they can't find anything out except by being there, or as though the U.S. can't function without their say-so.

Democrats cannot allow a victory now, after their staunch opposition for so long.

Dems Responding To Kerry NOT Running For President ~ heh heh

Kerry decides against 2008 presidential run

"As someone who made the mistake of voting for the resolution that gave the president the authority to go to war, I feel the weight of personal responsibility to act to devote time and energy to the national dialogue and an effort to limit this war and bring our participation to a conclusion," he said in a speech on the Senate floor.

Kerry voted for the congressional resolution authorizing the 2003 invasion of Iraq, but later turned against the war and was mocked as a "flip-flopper" during his 2004 challenge to President Bush

"I intend to devote all my efforts and energies over the coming two years not to another race for the presidency for myself, but to doing whatever I can to ensure that the next president can take the oath with a reasonable prospect of success for him or her -- for the United States," he said

Wild Thing's comment......

Hillary has his "real" Navy discharge papers in her files.

I think traitor Hanoi Kerry knows that he has no chance to even win the nomination.

As a friend of mine wrote me in an email today:

"I guess the lying, traitorous POS realized those of us who REMEMBER Vietnam and the lies he told about us -- haven't all died yet.. Plus -- he realizes that souls whose names are on that black wall on the Mall he has accused of war crimes, haven't forgotten either.. Plus -- he STILL hasn't and won't sign his SF-180, releasing his military and medical records which would PROVE he's a phony lying sonuvabitch..

Pigs Get the Ax In China TV Adsand In Nod to Muslims

SHANGHAI -- Next month, China will ring in the Year of the Pig
Wallstreet Journal

Nestlé SA planned to celebrate with TV ads featuring a smiling cartoon pig. "Happy new pig year," the ads said.

This week, China Central Television, the national state-run TV network, banned Nestlé's ad -- and all images and spoken references to the animal in commercials, including those tied to the Lunar New Year, China's biggest holiday.

The intent: to avoid offending Muslims, who consider pigs unclean. "China is a multiethnic country," the network's ad department said in a notice sent to ad agencies late Tuesday.

But it's not just any year of the pig — it's a GOLDEN pig year.

There are 12 animals in the Asian horoscope, and each sign comes around once every 12 years. Put together in a combination with elements such as water, fire and earth, each year is characterized to certain special meaning. Twelve different signs with five elements means you have 60 possible combinations.

The golden pig year — calculated through yin-and-yang theory. It happens only every 600 years. It is said that children born in the year of the golden pig will have great fortune. And it's a huge marketing event.

Wild Thing's comment.....

China turns PC and placates the Islamists? WTF That's how powerful, the Islamists are. China still kills Christians and tortures them, that is OK but God forbid they offend the Muslims.

I Am Taking The Pledge For Our Troops

I am taking the Pledge!

From Hugh Hewitt:

If the United States Senate passes a resolution, non-binding or otherwise, that criticizes the commitment of additional troops to Iraq that General Petraeus has asked for and that the president has pledged, and if the Senate does so after the testimony of General Petraeus on January 23 that such a resolution will be an encouragement to the enemy, I will not contribute to any Republican senator who voted for the resolution. Further, if any Republican senator who votes for such a resolution is a candidate for re-election in 2008, I will not contribute to the National Republican Senatorial Committee unless the Chairman of that Committee, Senator Ensign, commits in writing that none of the funds of the NRSC will go to support the re-election of any senator supporting the non-binding resolution.

Send It Here:
Ronald Reagan Republican Center
425 2nd Street, NE
Washington, DC 20002

Then e-mail Senator McConnell and Senator Ensign, and tell them too. Senator McConnell's phone number is (202) 224-2541. Senator Ensign's phone number is (202) 224-6244.

GOP activists and donors built the GOP senate delegation, as well as the majority that was punted away. They can disassemble it as well, and GOP support for a neoappeasement resolution is exactly the way to start that process.

The Congressional GOP has to realize it cannot have it both ways --you can't be for victory after you were against it.

And GOP senators --alone or as a group-- definitely cannot count on the support of the base if any of them vote for appeasement.

Take action by taking this pledge; fire off a few emails and perhaps make a couple phone calls. It will take about 15 minutes of your time.

Here is is the Website for the Pledge

Others who have taken the pledge:

* Something.....and Half of Something ( LindaSoG

* MVRWC (Beth)

* And Rightly So (Raven)

* Alabama Proper (Carol)

* 762 Justice ( Sniper One)

* Conservative Insurgent (Jack)

U.S., Iraqi Troops Kill 30 Militants

BAGHDAD, Iraq - U.S. and Iraqi troops battled Sunni insurgents hiding in high-rise buildings on Haifa Street in the heart of Baghdad Wednesday, with snipers on roofs taking aim at gunmen in open windows as Apache attack helicopters hovered overhead.

Iraq said 30 militants were killed and 27 captured.

New details also emerged about the downing of a private U.S. security company helicopter on Tuesday, with U.S. and Iraqi officials saying four of five Americans who died in the incident were shot execution-style. Violence was unrelenting in Iraq on Wednesday, with at least 69 people killed or found dead, including 33 tortured bodies found in separate locations in Baghdad.

Iraqi army and American troops moved into the Sunni stronghold to launch targeted raids in a third bid this month to clear the neighborhood of militants. Armored vehicles massed along Haifa Street, where a median with trees separates four lanes of traffic lined by tall apartment houses built by Saddam Hussein for loyalists and dissidents from other Arab countries, mainly Syria.

The U.S. military said the combined force in the operation, dubbed Tomahawk Strike II, detained seven suspected insurgents and seized heavy weapons, including many rocket-propelled grenades, anti-tank rounds and 155 mm artillery rounds. The Iraqi Defense Ministry said 30 insurgents were killed and 27 captured, including four Egyptians and a Sudanese.

Delivering The Counterpoint To State of Union Speech

Bin Laden's No 2 mocks Iraq plan in latest video

Al-Qaeda’s second-in-command has poured scorn on President Bush’s plan to send thousands more troops to Iraq, boasting that even the whole US army would not be a match for insurgents in Iraq.

In an online video address, Ayman al-Zawahiri, who carries a $25m bounty on head, is shown mocking Mr Bush’s fresh strategy to send 21,000 extra troops to quell sectarian violence, challenging him to send "the entire army" into the conflict-torn nation so that they could be destroyed by his charges.

The video came as the US military said that it had detained more than 600 fighters from Moqtada al-Sadr’s Mehdi Army, the feared and powerful militia which a recent US report described as having replaced al-Qaeda as the largest threat to security in Iraq.

"In his latest speech, Bush said in his ramblings that he would send 20,000 of his soldiers to Iraq. I ask him: why send only 20,000 soldiers? Why don’t you send 50,000 or 100,000?" he said.
"Don’t you know that the dogs of Iraq are impatient to devour the carcasses of your soldiers? On the contrary, you must send your entire army to be annihilated at the hands of the mujahedeen so that the whole world will be rid of your wickedness."

In the tape, al-Zawahiri also mocks the US-led mission to rid Afghanistan of remnants of the extremist Taliban movement.

"Iraq, the country of the caliphate and of jihad, is capable of being a tomb for ten of your armies. It is al-Qaeda and the Taliban, led by the emir of the believers, Mullah Mohammed Omar…who have deprived the Americans of a safe haven in Afghanistan.
"Security must be shared: if we are safe, you will be too... If we are hit and killed, you will inescapably be hit and killed. Today, the duty of every Muslim is to bear arms or to support and serve those who bear the arms."

Zawahiri also refers to recent events in Somalia in his message, accusing the US of being behind the deployment of Ethiopian troops and vowing that Islamist forces would "break the back" of the Ethiopian forces.

Unlike his leader, Osama bin Laden, Zawahiri frequently speaks for Al-Qaeda in video or audiotapes although his whereabouts remain unknown. He is listed by the US government for being wanted in connections with the 1998 bombings of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and was sentenced to death in absentia by an Egyptian court a year later.

In a previous online message on January 5, Zawahiri called on the Somali Islamists to be use violence in Iraq and Afghanistan as inspiration to fight the Ethiopian forces in Somalia. The Pentagon said last week that US operations in Somalia would continue until key Al-Qaeda targets were eliminated.

The video came as the US forces said that some 600 fighters and 16 leaders of the Mehdi Army – the militia loyal to radical Shia cleric al-Sadr - had been taken into custody.

A military statement said that in the past 45 days, 52 raids had targeted al-Sadr’s militia, but did not reveal when the members who are awaiting prosecution were detained. It added that a further 42 raids had focused on Sunni insurgents.

The Mehdi Army, which is believed to have up to 60,000 members, forms one of Iraq’s most feared and powerful militias and is suspected of being heavily involved in the killing of Sunnis in Baghdad and other parts of the country. The latest quarterly Pentagon report released last month named it as the largest threat to security, saying it "has replaced al-Qaeda in Iraq as the most dangerous accelerant of potentially self-sustaining sectarian violence in Iraq."

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

I'm so gonna love it when this fleabag's skull gets renovated with a skylight. Courtesy of a US Army sniper.

The Democrats hate it when Ayman al-Zawahiri releases his stuff prior to President Bush's State of the Union speech tonight. It forces the Democrat speech writers to change all the portions about Iraq in the Dem response to avoid charges of plagiarism. heh heh

There are SO many "Number Twos" in the Islamofascist hierarchy, it is hard to tell how close to the top Joe Biden or Jack Murtha are.

McCain Says Yep He Will Run for President in 2008

Sen. McCain running for president in 2008
Pittsburgh Tribune

Sen. John McCain didn't mince words Monday when asked if there is any doubt that he is running for president in 2008.

"There is no doubt," McCain told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in an exclusive interview.

While his presidential exploratory committee still must decide the right time for a formal announcement, the Arizona Republican made his firmest declaration to date that he's in the race.

"Right now, the Iraq issue ... is taking a lot of my attention and effort away, and I think that's appropriate. I'm still a United States senator. I've got to perform my duties," McCain said.

But his committee is "making all the preparations" for a run, he said.

During a 30-minute interview, McCain touched on a range of issues -- the situation in Iraq, the state of affairs in Latin America and Cuba, what he hopes to hear from President Bush in tonight's State of the Union address and what a McCain presidency would be like.

McCain made stops in Harrisburg and Pittsburgh yesterday to meet with prospective supporters for his presidential bid. Pennsylvania will be a key battleground state in the race for president, just as it was in 2000 and 2004, he said.

You can continue HERE for rest of article and interview.

Just sitting here as they all turn in their names. All the wanna be's. I will NOT vote for McCain, nope, no way.

Leftie Group Wants Webb to Rebut Bush Before Joint Session

Group Wants Webb to Rebut Bush Before Joint Session

( - A left-wing activist group is calling on Democrats to let Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) rebut the president's State of the Union address before the full joint session of Congress to symbolize the Democrats' "reclamation of power."

VelvetRevolution said the Democratic response to President Bush's address is usually "an embarrassing, limp, pro forma predictable 'hey, don't forget about us!' rejoinder which the TV networks begrudgingly carry which most viewers ignore."

Now, the Democratic response "can truly carry the message - from a level playing field - of how the Democrats envision their plans bettering the state of our union," the group said in a press release.
Webb "should deliver his address to that same jam-packed and receptive chamber as the president is granted, demonstrating that Democrats are running Congress as a co-equal branch of government, and laying out their vision for the country," it added.
"In doing so, the Democrats will finally show what they stand for - and that they will no longer be cowed - instead of merely and meekly serving as bit players and extras in a grand show which George W. Bush no longer leads," the group said.

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

Congressional members are behaving disgracefully, but they are getting away with it. These are very vile nasty people. I heard Sheila Jackson-Lee on the House floor this evening...saying she recommends and endorses cutting all funding for the Iraq

They are a cackle of cowards that stab the troops in the back. And Jim Webb make me sick, just hearing his name turns my stomach.

They do NOT have the JOB of giving the State of the Union Address...neither does the Supreme Court have the JOB of making laws...but, hey...we know THEY have been guilty of that lately.

The writers of the Constitution must be spinning in their graves.

Good Grief! ~ Martinez Vows To Use GOP Post For Hispanic Outreach

Martinez Vows To Use GOP Post For Hispanic Outreach

WASHINGTON - Sen. Mel Martinez of Orlando became the new face of the Republican Party on Friday, pledging to attract more Hispanic voters and heal the party's rift over illegal immigration.

"The fact that a boy at age 15 can come here from another country, with nothing, not even speaking the language of this country, and stand before you today as a leader of our great party and a United States senator is a miracle that could only happen in America," said Martinez, who immigrated to Florida from Cuba.

He was overwhelmingly elected to a new position, general chairman, by members of the Republican National Committee. A handful of "no" votes came from representatives of border states who oppose his views on illegal immigration.

Martinez and President Bush are among Republicans who favor giving workers in the country illegally a path to citizenship. Opponents dismiss the plan as amnesty.

"I want to make sure we take [the] message to the broader Hispanic community, to the African-American community and to all communities that may never have believed that Republican ideals spoke to them," Martinez said.

Martinez offered a hint of how he intends to increase minority interest.

In a news conference, he answered a few questions from English-speaking reporters. Then he turned to a Spanish-speaking television reporter and said, "In the interest of diversity, let me take a pregunta en espanol."

Wild Thing's comment.....

I don't like Martinez! I had a gut feeling if he was in this position it would be just like this with this plan of his. No No No thank you.

OK this is a real life experience. A man that worked in the company I used to work for came here from Peru. He wanted to become a citizen and he did. His wife did not because she said, " I don't want to pay taxes and this way I can send more money to our families at home." Home? Yep, she meant Peru.
Both of them think Bill Clinton is a gift from God. They HATE Bush, and are complete Democrats.

Giving in to the illegal immigrants does NOT lock in a Republican vote. And from what I can tell from the news it only shows how they think the Democratic party is the one they will vote for. So all this kissing up that Bush does for them means nothing. And it shows them that the President of the most powerful country in the entire world does not respect the existing laws of this land so why should they.

Iran's Leader: U.N. Won't Stop Nuke Plan

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks to the media after delivering his budget bill to the parliament, in Tehran, Iran, Sunday, Jan. 21, 2007. Ahmadinejad on Sunday defended his economic policies from sharp recent domestic criticism and said U.N. Security Council sanctions imposed in December would never deter the country from pursuing its nuclear program.

Iran's Leader: U.N. Won't Stop Nuke Plan

Mideast News

Iran's hardline president on Sunday defended his economic policies from domestic criticism and said U.N. Security Council sanctions would never deter the country from pursuing its nuclear program.

"The (U.N.) resolution was delivered dead. Ten more similar resolutions will not affect our economy and our policy," President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in a speech broadcast live on state-run television as he delivered a budget for the new year.
"Falsely, they want to imply that we have had costs in this regard," the president said - an apparent reference to recent news stories in the West that prices of food and other basics have risen in Iran since the U.N. sanctions were imposed in late December.

Wild Thing's comment......

Little man standing on footstool thinking he makes the final decision about his nuclear program. Ha ha- ho ho- no way. The power of our military is nothing to brush off, and even the UN will have it's day of silence if Iran messes with us.

In Country With Our Troops

Soldiers use air assets to capture bomb makers in Hawija Soldiers from B Troop, 5th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment take inventory of weapons and other items confiscated during a raid on a compound south of Balad Ruz in Diyala province Dec 27. The small village was believed to have been used as a safe haven by anti-coalition forces to traffic people, weapons and money into other regions in Iraq to disrupt security operations by Coalition force members. Photo by Staff Sgt. Samantha Stryker, 5th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment.

Soldiers clear village, find weapons

JANABI VILLAGE — Multi-National Division - Baghdad Soldiers have been working hard to get the Iraqi Soldiers trained to enable them to take over Iraq’s security themselves.

So the recent success of the joint operation which put the entire 4th Brigade, 6th Iraqi Army Division together with Soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, 15th Field Artillery Regiment Military Transition Team and the 4th Battalion, 31st Infantry Regiment, 2nd BCT, was a victory not only against terror, but for the troops themselves.

The operation went smoothly with 600 troops participating.

Some troops air-assaulted into the village under cover of darkness, while the main force convoyed to the village, marching in at first light to search houses and fields, seeking weapons caches and suspected terrorists.

“It went very well for such a large operation,” said Capt. Art Stringer, a native of Dardanelle, Ark., and the field artillery effects trainer, who planned much of the mission.
“It was a complex operation – the joint air assault, and a large ground assault. Once on site, we used Task Force Iron Claw, engineers and explosive ordnance disposal, and they all combined very well,” Stringer said.
“Any time you can let the Iraqis test their boundaries, it’s good,” he said of the Iraqi army involvement. “It’s their battle space, and it helps them build confidence in themselves and in the U.S. forces.”

The operation, netted 87 detainees, 12 of whom were on the Iraqi Army blacklist, and several large caches of weaponry, which included rocket-propelled grenades and launchers. A large cache of improvised explosive device making materials was also recovered, which included cell phones, wire and other hardware.

Some residents directed the troops to the homes of suspicious people.

“We got information on two of the guys on the blacklist,” said Staff Sgt. Michael Myers, a native of Gasport, N.Y., who serves on a MTT, to one of the Iraqi Soldiers. The squad he was with questioned a man who gave them the information.
“The Iraqi Soldiers are very motivated,” Myers said. “They’re doing a lot better than they were at first; they’re doing more complex missions. They need some more experience with map reading and such, but they did an excellent job creating a secure perimeter. They’re doing well.”

Documentary on Fox News:Hezbollah Inside America

Hezbollah Inside America
Does any terrorist organization pose a greater threat to Americans than Al Qaeda?
Fox News Documentary

Saturday, January 20th, at 8 p.m. EST, and repeated at 4:00 a.m. EST early Sunday morning, as FOX News Channel presented a a documentary, “Smokescreen: Hezbollah Inside America.” I just found ouot about it at so I am sorry to have missed the earlier show. But I am taping the 4 a.m time. It may be on again, so please check your Fox News listings if you are interested in seeing it. - Wild Thing

While Americans are still largely focused on Al Qaeda and Usama bin Laden — who’s presumably rotting away in some cave — the terrorist group Hezbollah has been setting up shop right here in America’s heartland. And most Americans don’t know a thing about it. But we should know more about Hezbollah — a lot more.

As tensions with Iran are increasing, it’s important to keep in mind that Hezbollah is largely funded by Iran and has operated as its tool in terror operations around the world. As former Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte recently reminded us:

“Hezbollah’s self-confidence and hostility toward the U.S. as a supporter of Israel could cause the group to increase its contingency planning against U.S. interests.”

Hezbollah operatives have been quietly setting up operations in the U.S. for years. One of those operations is the subject of “Smokescreen: Hezbollah Inside America." The documentary tells about a Hezbollah cell that was operating for several years in Charlotte, North Carolina. FOX followed the many tentacles of this cell, which extended far beyond Charlotte — to Michigan, to the West Coast, to Canada and to Beirut, Lebanon, where most of the members were from.

At least one member of the Hezbollah cell first came to the U.S. on forged visa picked up in Venezuela. Others overstayed their tourist or student visas. Once here, they began making millions through a combination of tobacco smuggling, credit card schemes, and arranging phony “green-card” marriages. They even succeeded at obtaining a $1.7 million loan from the Small Business Administration.

Even though the team succeeded in gaming our system and making millions of dollars in criminal enterprises, the FBI was on to them almost from the start.

All of this was before 9/11 (and before the Patriot Act) when the FBI was prevented from combining its terrorist surveillance with criminal investigations. A “Chinese Wall” separated criminal investigations from terrorist investigations, so ATF that had launched its own probe into the case, knew nothing of the gang’s terrorist connections.

This is just one of the many hurdles the FBI, ATF, state and local law enforcement needed to overcome in bringing this cell down. We highlight their heroic efforts and the flaws in our own system that allowed this terror network to flourish.

What makes "Smokescreen: Hezbollah Inside America" particularly relevant today is not merely how it connects with the growing conflicts in the Mideast and our growing conflicts with Iran, but the fact that the case in Charlotte is about to be reopened. In February, the leader of the Charlotte cell, who was sentenced to 155 years in jail, is up for re-sentencing. This story will undoubtedly shed more light on the case and help decide whether this man will ever see the light of day outside of a U.S. prison.

Initially, the hardest part of the job for FBI terror investigators was convincing their cohorts that Hezbollah was a genuine threat to Americans. There was much skepticism, despite the fact that before 9/11, no terrorist group had killed more Americans in the Mideast than Hezbollah. And Hezbollah extended their killing spree to this hemisphere, with a 1994 bombing that killed dozens of women and children at a Jewish center in Argentina. But the FBI, as much of the nation, was still in its pre-9/11 mindset, refusing to devote the resources or concern that we should have been devoting to the terrorist threat.

The exceptions to that rule are the heroes of this story: An FBI agent who refused to allow the taunts and skepticism of his colleagues to dissuade him from tracking the connections that linked a group of Lebanese illegals operating in Charlotte to terror cells in Canada and Beirut. An alert sheriff’s deputy, working part time at a tobacco wholesaler in Charlotte, who spent his own time tracking down a suspicious group of Arabic-speaking customers who were trading wads of cash for tons of cheap tobacco. A young prosecutor willing to bet his reputation on a case that had to leapfrog over terrorist laws that were either antiquated or hadn’t even been written yet.

While arrests were made in this case a year before 9/11, the case was tried just after 9/11, and that brought with it a whole new set of questions that we examine.

Were members of the terror cell too readily convicted by a jury that was still caught up in a post-9/11 panic? Certainly that’s the contention of Stanley Cohen, the lawyer for the cell’s ringleader, Mohammad Hammoud.

FOX News wanted to find out more about the case. So we got Cohen to take us to Beirut to talk to members of the cell indicted in the case. Only by seeing the volatile environment in which the cell members were raised did we get an appreciation of what motivated them. But we also witnessed why the United States needs to stay vigilant in its efforts to stop those who want to do us harm.

We went to Beirut, and our timing was auspicious. Our visit coincided with an explosive power struggle in Lebanon between Hezbollah and its opponents in government. While we were filming in Hezbollah's stronghold in Southern Beirut, a FOX producer rushed to the scene to tell us that cabinet minister Pierre Gemayal had just been shot and killed in an ambush not far from where we were filming. The decision was made to get out quickly.

The night before the assassination, Cohen appeared shaken after a conversation with Sheik Abbas Harake, a man we were supposed to interview the next day.

According to the U.S. government, Harake was a military commander in Beirut and received money from Mohammad Hammoud, Cohen's client. Harake was the alleged conduit connecting the Charlotte cell to the military wing of Hezbollah. Cohen argued that Harake was just a used car salesman, who ran a humanitarian aid group for Hezbollah. But the night before the assassination, it appeared Harake knew that something was up. He called Cohen to say he couldn't make the interview the next day. "Things are about to get ugly," a nervous Cohen told me after speaking with the sheik.

What makes "Smokescreen: Hezbollah Inside America" particularly relevant today is not merely how it connects with the growing conflicts in the Mideast and our growing conflicts with Iran, but the fact that the case in Charlotte is about to be reopened. In February, the leader of the Charlotte cell, who was sentenced to 155 years in jail, is up for re-sentencing. This story will undoubtedly shed more light on the case and help decide whether this man will ever see the light of day outside of a U.S. prison.

Coward and Bully Terrorist Al-Sadr Whines He is Being Targeted - LOL

Al-Sadr says he is being targeted and has moved his family to safe place
Gulf News

Al Sadr said that 400 of his men had been arrested and that he is also being targeted, prompting him to move his family to a secure location, the Italian daily La Repubblica reported.

Pressure is increasing on Al Sadr's militia ahead of a planned security sweep aimed at stemming the sectarian violence ransacking the Iraqi capital. Yesterday, US and Iraqi forces arrested one of the cleric's top aides in Baghdad, his office said.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki has pledged to crack down on Shiite militias as well as Sunni insurgents in a planned security operation to quell the sectarian violence in Baghdad.

The Shiite cleric said he is being targeted.

"For this reason, I have moved my family to a secure location. I even have had a will drawn up, and I move continuously in a way that only few can know where I am," he was quoted as saying by Repubblica.

"But even if I were to die, Mehdi would continue to exist. Men can be killed. Faith and ideas cannot," he said.

Al Sadr said that "there are at least four armies" ready to strike against his Mehdi militia: a secret army he said was trained in Jordan by the US military, a private army he said is at the disposal of former Prime Minister Eyad Allawi.

Wild Thing's comment......

I imagine he would not want his family to be subject to an IED or car-bomb going off in a public place, as he has ordered his militia members to do to others. What a coward he is!! After all that mouthing off we heard from him over the last year. Poor baby, payback is a bitch! Al Sadr thinks he's being targeted? I hope he's right.

Die terrorist die!

Iraqi Terrorists Toasted by AC-130

This is remarkable film footage. It has been around for awhile, but it is so good.

This is a night vision movie from Iraq, showing live action against Iraqi insurgents. The pictures were taken from an AC-130 Specter gunship two and a half miles from the target. The guys in the picture are setting up a roadside bomb and planning to ambush an American convoy which followed a short while after the pictures were taken. They were setting up the ambush and were pacing off the distance from the bomb to where the convoy was to pass by.

Turn your sound up. The level of effort these Specter crews put forth to control the enemy's antics is commendable, and their marksmanship with those electronically controlled 40mm cannons is astounding.

The Video is HERE

Asset Freeze Renewed on Osama Terrorist Network

A Pakistani vendor hangs posters of Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden at his road side book stall in Peshawar.

WASHINGTON (AFP) - US President George W. Bush renewed for one year an asset freeze on terrorist chief Osama bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda network as well as groups like Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad.

In a letter to key US lawmakers explaining the move, Bush cited "grave acts of violence committed by foreign terrorists that disrupt the Middle East peace process."

"Terrorist groups continue to engage in activities that have the purpose or effect of threatening the Middle East peace process and that are hostile to United States interests in the region," he said.

"Such actions constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States," said the president.

"For these reasons, I have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared with respect to foreign terrorists who threaten to disrupt the Middle East peace process and to maintain in force the economic sanctions against them to respond to this threat," said Bush.

Wild Thing's comment......

This surprised me, why do we have to make sure this asset freeze is renewed regarding Osama? How odd, I would think since we are at war with Islam any terrorist group, leader, organization would not have to be renewed on any level about anything. Hmmmm strange.

In Country Artillery Soldiers Bring Firepower

Sgt Albert Cook runs out of a M109A6 Paladin, a Self-Propelled Howitzer, to retrieve canisters for indirect fire missions at Forward Operating Base Warhorse, in the Diyala Province of Iraq. The artillery Soldier is a member of A Battery, 2nd Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division.

Artillery Soldiers bring more than firepower to fight in new deployment

Wednesday, 17 January 2007
By Staff Sgt. Samantha M. Stryker
5th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment

BAQUBAH — If any one knows what it means to adjust fire, it is the Soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division. Instead of sending rounds down range, these Fort Hood Soldiers served as infantrymen, and even called for fire support during their previous deployment to Iraq.

Those missions included security escorts, presence patrols, and conducting raids aimed at capturing suspected insurgents and confiscating prohibited weapons and bomb-making material used against coalition forces.

This time around, the Soldiers are doing the job they know best; sending 155mm rounds down range in support of on-going operations in the Diyala Province for 3rd BCT.

“We have trained for years and finally we get the opportunity to fire. We are energized by that,” said 1st Lt. Sean O’Keefe, A Battery, 2nd platoon leader.
“We are here to support units with the type of mission needed, whether its illumination or high explosives, we will support them within minutes,” O’Keefe added.
Along with their mission to provide indirect fire support for the brigade and attached units, O’Keefe said the 2-82 FA also supports fire missions requested by Iraqi Security Forces working with Military Transition Teams.
“Some MiTT teams have the capability to talk to the battery,” he said.

Fire Support Officer, 2nd Lt. Jeremy Duplechin, B Company, 1st Battalion, 12th Combined Arms Battalion, stressed the importance of the experience by the 2-82 FA Soldiers and how it has made them better.

The young artillery officer is attached to an infantry company as an artillery advisor to coordinate artillery support during any type of mission.

“These artillery Soldiers have a new perspective on their mission and how forward operating units work in conjunction with indirect fire,” said Duplechin.
“I bet they have a better appreciation and understanding of how important their job is after they have been on the ground,” he added.

Knowing what the Soldiers who are forward in the fight see and experience when rounds strike their targets is valuable knowledge, but time and accuracy are even more crucial. This is how artillery Soldiers prove themselves in battle.

“We learned more about both sides and how each of them are needed and work together to accomplish any mission,” said Spc. Efren Ordaz, A Battery, 2-82 FA, referring back to their last deployment.
“When patrols need artillery support, we understand firsthand…how fast they need it,” he said.

This unit is divided between two bases in the Diyala province, with each battery providing indirect fire support for current and future operations.

Providing support for units forward in the battle is not the only mission for these artillerymen. They also provide protection for the Soldiers on those bases.

“The less we shoot, the more we get mortared,” said Sgt. 1st Class Eric Andersen, acting first sergeant for A Battery, 2-82 FA.

The battery’s top enlisted member, often called ‘Smoke,’ offers this explanation for the loud booming sounds of artillery leaving Forward Operating Base Warhorse, leaving trembling buildings in its wake.

“It is ‘piece of mind’ what service members hear as the roaring thunder of artillery rounds leave the gun tube of a howitzer,” Andersen said.
“Here is a reality check,” he said with a grin, “The artillery guys shoot at and remove a positively identified target or threat that is either firing at us or some one innocent.”

Terrorists Using Internet Too As Training Camps

Netherland's: Internet a "Virtual Terrorist Training Camp" says Official

Amsterdam, 17 Jan. (AKI)

Radical Muslim organisations currently operate between 100 and 200 web sites offering, bomb-making manuals and step-by-step video instructions, and more, national counter-terrorism coordinator Tjibbe Joustra says in a new report, quoted by Radio Netherlands.

He is concerned that the Internet also enables radical groups to target their propaganda at receptive Dutch audiences and says it is looking increasingly like "a virtual terrorist training camp," Radio Netherlands reports.

Wild Thing's comment.....

We have heard this as well from our own government.They even use servers located here in our country. This is a new kind of war, one that is also fought on the internet.

Dope Smuggler Goes Free and Border Patrol Gets Jail Time ~ HUH?

Bush Slammed as Border Patrol Agents Begin Prison Terms
As two U.S. Border Patrol agents surrendered to federal marshals Wednesday afternoon to begin serving more than a decade in jail for shooting an illegal drug smuggler, a federal lawmaker and conservative advocacy group expressed outrage at President Bush for not pardoning the men.

"This is the worst betrayal of American defenders I have ever seen," Rep. Dana Rohrabacher said of the president.
"It's shameful this was done by someone who is in the Republican Party," the California Republican added in comments coinciding with the jailing of agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.
Rohrabacher said Bush "obviously thinks more about his agreements with Mexico than the lives of American people and backing up his defenders."

Ramos and Compean reportedly handed themselves over to the U.S. Marshal's office in El Paso, Texas, early Wednesday afternoon, facing the prospect of 11- and 12-year prison terms, respectively, for a string of offenses including the use of a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence.


On February 17, 2005, Ramos and Compean were patrolling the border town of Fabens, Texas, when a Mexican illegal alien and drug smuggler, attempted to secret nearly 800 pounds of marijuana into the United States in his van. Agent Compean chased Osbaldo Aldrete-Davila by vehicle and on foot, ordering him to stop. Compean says Aldrete-Davila ignored him, pushed him down, and assaulted him, whereupon the agent called for backup, drawing seven additional units, including Ramos. When he arrived on the scene, he heard gunfire, saw Compean bleeding on the ground, and the fugitive – still refusing to stop as commanded – stealing furtive glances over his shoulder while holding something shiny he believed to be a handgun. Both state they felt threatened, and both fired rounds in the alien’s direction, Ramos striking him in the buttocks. The alien got away, but the two men had jeopardized their own well-being to keep his noxious contraband off our streets.

Returning to Mexico, Aldrete-Davila related his misfortunes to his mother, who contacted the mother-in-law of Border Patrol agent Rene Sanchez. Sanchez in turn tipped off a member of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, who went to Mexico to offer immunity if Osbaldo would act as a state’s witness against Ramos and Compean: the feds wanted to prosecute the agents shooting the alien narcotics supplier.

To sweeten the immunity deal, the feds paid for Osbaldo Aldrete-Davila’s medical treatment of his ailing backside – a taxpayer-funded recuperation at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas. He showed his gratitude by breaking his immunity agreement in October 2005, when officers say he attempted to smuggle 1,000 pounds of marijuana into America. The prosecution further extended its immunity to this felony and sealed the indictment from jurors. Aldrete-Davila repaid this new shower of grace by suing the federal government for $5 million, alleging the shooting violated his civil rights. However, he agreed to help in their criminal prosecution, as well, and the feds are apparently happy to collaborate with the pusher as long as he helped put effective lawmen behind bars.

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

These guys would have never been convicted if this Administration didn't offer the Illegal Alien Drug Smuggler immunity to testify against them.

I will defend the BP agents more than I will a drug smuggler! An ILLEGAL alien drug smuggler at that!

These Border Agents did their job, when an AMERICAN says they defend a bum drug smuggler and NOT the law and those who upkeep the law it is a sad day in America!!

It reminds me of those that tried to convict our Military not to long ago when they were accused. We all supported and stood by our military and I would do it again just as I stand by the BORDER PATROL AGENTS!

Anyone can come over the OPEN border, terrorists with suitcase nuclear weapons and stinking drug smugglers! There is something very wrong with these guys going to prison and the drug dealer going free.

This wasn't Anytown USA and those BP's are in an undeclared war zone of which our leaders in Washington DC have turned a blind eye to. It is the Mexican Smugglers against the US BP it is the Mexican Army as well as Mexican Police against our BP. Then besides that they face the often-armed illegal’s with nothing to loose. Night after night day after day while our POTUS kisses up to the Mexican government BACKING the ones shooting at our BP's for his beloved new trade union. That’s right, OUR Government BREAKING OUR LAWS everyday they kiss ass to Mexico encouraging the illegal’s to enter and give them rewards with our tax dollars for doing such.

What is worse the government thinks that their bad cutting a deal by pardoning a felon with 700 pounds of pot is a far less serious a crime as being shot in the butt? This man has had how many arrests by BP? The USAG's office is ready to give him sainthood.

How many BP's have been shot at and killed by Mexicans and what has been Mexico's response? What have been the Whitehouse’s demands? It's a war zone down there!

The record shows, for a fact, they acted legally and thought the perp had a gun at the time.

I will no more second guess them under their circumstances than our U.S. service members actions in Iraq.

Unarmed National Guards on the border that the BP as well must protect. Bush has helped create the very conditions that place our BP's lives in danger to start with. In light of his gross mis-management concerning our borders yes he owes them a pardon and the rest of the BP and the NG's he sent there unarmed an apology as well.

Rule of law" to Alberto Gonzales means:

1. 12 years in prison for shooting a drug smuggler in the ass, and lying about it

2. 100 hours community service for Sandy Berger for stealing and destroying top-secret government documents pertaining to acts of war, and lying about it.

Our government is sending the border agents a message: Don't defend yourselves. Don't secure the border. Otherwise, you go to jail. You're there only for appearances.

Now let's take this a step further ok? We have our awesome troops, locked and loaded to fight. Ready, aim, fire…. a go at the enemy. BUT wait......God forbid they take out a Muslim that reaches for a bomb, a gun, a weapon. God forbid the freaking smelly turbin headed Muslim turns to run and gets shot, in the gluts’, in the back, in the hamstring...whatever! Who gives a shit! I applaud the soldier and we have one less infidel hater on this earth. I call that a damn good day!

We are sending more troops to Iraq. OK good, but IF our leadership intends to repeat the hands tied behind the back rule, then screw it. Yes I am pissed, I am tired of this weak lawbreaking leadership that expects our troops, our soldiers and yes our BP agents to do their job when our leadership ignores our existing laws, takes the side of the damn Muslims and the illegal’s, then this world is upside down and we might as well just order more amo for our homes and keep going to the range. Because the open borders have already proven they are a way for terrorists to enter as well.

I am fierce about loyalty and I will give mine to our troops, to our Veterans and to our BP agents that WANT to defend this Nation. NOT to some two faced loyalty in our leadership that want to stay in some kind of sick comfort zone of aiding the enemy by caving in to their demands, their whines, their illegal activity and their deal making, lies and tax funded health care etc. to obtain the freedoms that our Veterans, and troops today fought for, got injured for and died for. And that includes our BP agents as well.

US Military Gear Bound For Iran, China Traced To Pentagon

Military gear bound for Iran, China traced to Pentagon surplus sales International Herald Tribune Published: January 16, 2007

WASHINGTON: Fighter jet parts and other sensitive U.S. military gear seized from front companies for Iran and brokers for China have been traced in criminal cases to a surprising source: the U.S. Defense Department.

In one case, federal investigators said, contraband bought at auction from Defense surplus stocks was delivered to Iran, which President George W. Bush had in his "axis of evil" grouping. Just Tuesday, the State Department branded Iran as the world's worst exporter of terror.

In the Iran case, a Pakistani arms broker convicted of exporting U.S. missile parts to Iran resumed business after his release from prison. He purchased Chinook helicopter engine parts for Iran from a U.S. company that had bought them in a Pentagon surplus sale. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents say those parts made it to Iran.

Sensitive military surplus items are supposed to be demilitarized, rendered useless for military purposes, or if auctioned, sold only to buyers who promise to obey U.S. arms embargoes, export controls and other laws.

Yet the surplus sales can operate like a supermarket for arms dealers.

"Right Item, Right Time, Right Place, Right Price, Every Time. Best Value Solutions for America's Warfighters," the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service says on its Web site, calling itself "the place to obtain original U.S. Government surplus property."

Federal investigators are increasingly anxious that Iran is within easy reach of a top priority on its shopping list: parts for its precious fleet of F-14 "Tomcat" fighter jets the United States let Iran buy in the 1970s when it was an ally.

In one case, convicted middlemen for Iran bought Tomcat parts from the Defense Department's surplus division. Customs agents confiscated them and returned them to the Pentagon, which sold them again, customs evidence tags still attached, to another buyer, a suspected broker for Iran.

"That would be evidence of a significant breakdown, in my view, in controls and processes," said Greg Kutz, the Government Accountability Office's head of special investigations. "It shouldn't happen the first time, let alone the second time."

Where the hell did the Pentagon think this hardware would end up? Disneyland? WTF?

OK so let's see, it could be the Pentagon is deliberately selling defective gear to Iran and China. ( ????) If not this is NOT good news.

Russia Completes Air Defense System Deliveries To Iran

Russian Tor-M1 missile system launcher vehicles are seen during military exercises somewhere in undisclosed location in Russia, in this July 28, 2005 file picture. Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov on Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2007, confirmed that Russia has sold Tor-M1 air defense missile systems to Iran. Ministry officials have previously said Moscow would supply 29 of the sophisticated missile systems to Iran under a US$700 million (euro615 million) contract signed in December

Russia stands firm in face of criticism over sale of anti-aircraft missiles to Tehran

RUSSIA said yesterday it had delivered new anti-aircraft missile systems to Iran and would consider further requests by Tehran for defensive weapons.

Washington and Israel, which accuse Tehran of seeking to develop nuclear arms and undermining security in the region, have criticised the sale of TOR-M1 missiles.

"We have supplied the modern short-range anti-aircraft systems TOR-M1 in accordance with our contracts," the Russian defence minister, Sergei Ivanov, told reporters. We're developing our military and technical co-operation with Iran in accordance with international law.
"If Iran wants to buy defensive, I underline defensive, equipment for its armed forces, then why not?"

Mr Ivanov, who is seen as a potential successor to the president, Vladimir Putin, did not say how many missile systems had been delivered or when the deliveries took place.

Russian arms sales and nuclear co-operation with Iran have strained relations with the United States, which suspects Tehran of using a nuclear power programme as cover for development of atomic weapons.

Russia, which is building Iran's first nuclear power plant, says Tehran does not have the capability to make nuclear weapons. Iran says it has a right to develop its civilian nuclear sector and denies seeking nuclear arms.

Information about the Tor M1

Tor M1 air defense short range missile systemThe TOR-M1 surface-to-air missile system is a mobile, integrated air defense system, designed for operation at medium-, low- and very low –altitudes, against fixed/rotary wing aircraft, UAVs, guided missiles and precision weapon. The system is capable of operating in an intensive aerial jamming environment. The system is comprised of a number of missile Transporter Launcher Vehicle (TLV). A Russian air defense Tor battalion consists of 3 - 5 companies, each equipped with four TLVs. Each TLV is equipped with 8 ready to launch missiles, associating radars, fire control systems and a battery command post. The combat vehicle can operate autonomously, firing from stationary positions or on the move. Set-up time is rated at 3 minutes and typical reaction time, from target detection to missile launch is 5-8 seconds. Reaction time could range from 3.4 seconds for stationary positions to 10 seconds while on the move. Each fire unit can engage and launch missiles against two separate targets.

Tor M1 missile launched from the vertical container/launcher. The missile uses cold launch to exit and clear the launcher, and the rocket motor and thrusters are ignited at an altitude of 20 meters.Tor M1 can detect and track up to 48 targets (minimum radar cross section of 0.1 square meter) at a maximum range of 25 km, and engage two of them simultaneously, at a speed of up to 700 m/sec, and at a distance of 1 to 12 km. The system's high lethality (aircraft kill probability of 0.92-0.95) is maintained at altitude of 10 – 6,000 m'. The vertically launched, single-stage solid rocket propelled missile is capable of maneuvering at loads up to 30gs. It is equipped with a 15kg high-explosive fragmentation warhead activated by a proximity fuse. The system is offered as fully integrated tracked combat vehicle, or as a modular combat unit (TOR-M1T) comprising a truck mounted mobile control module and launcher/antenna units, carried on a trailer. Other configuration include separated towed systems, as well as shelter-based systems, for the protection of fixed sites.

The missile is also effective against precision guided weapons and cruise missiles. In tests the missile demonstrated kill probability of such targets ranging from 0.6 to 0.9.

Wild Thing's comment.....

So it seems without Russia's help, Iran would be stuck in the 19th century. And imo there's no way Russia will back down from backing Iran.

"Cry Havoc!" and let slip the dogs of war - Shakespeare

If Tehran Knew
asharq alawsat

In America, they lie for tactical reasons, stating over and over that military action against Iran is unlikely. However in Iran, out of ignorance, they reiterate that American military action against their country is impossible because the US is "unable" to do so!

We say and hope our analysis is wrong. A possible military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities is in the final stages. Unless a political miracle occurs that revives the halted dialog between Iran and the international community, Iran and its neighboring countries should not be surprised by a scenario that includes American military action.

There are a number of common illusions in the Arab and Muslim mind in general, illusions that on several occasions in the past have been tried and proven unsuccessful. It was proven that the Arabs confuse their hopes with reality, and between what the other wants and what we think they are planning for.

There is an illusion that Iran is a huge military state with decisive striking power. This would be true if Iran was to confront one of its neighbors, but the fact is that in any confrontation between America and Iran, Iran would be a tiny helpless state. It will suffer what the Arabs suffered in 1967 and what Iraq suffered when Saddam stubbornly rejected all peaceful solutions. America will be able to impose its conditions. This has nothing to do with love or hatred. Geographically and historically, Iran is closer to us than America, and the cultural and historical relations we have with Iran outweigh our ties with America. Rather it is the facts, reality that show that the balances of power tilt flagrantly in favor of the United States and the Western alliance, particularly the European one!

Another illusion is that America is "rolling in the Iraqi mud." I wish that the Arab world would not believe such a statement; Iraq is not another Vietnam, and America is able to conduct more than one war because of its huge political and technological capabilities.

Tehran needs to reconsider its political discourse. The clamor of hollow threats has not succeeded once in modern history. No one ever succeeded without using one's mind and knowing one's capabilities and acting accordingly, pursuant to the rule "God favors those who know their self worth".

Israel has a nuclear arsenal but no Israeli official dares to mention Israel's possessions of nuclear weapons; they even deny the existence of these weapons. In Tehran, they are still in the early stages of enrichment; yet we hear a language of threats, menace and stubbornness.

If only the Iranian leadership thinks of the interests of its peoples, seeks to understand today's complicated international political equations and realizes that big words do not change political facts and that seeking practical alternatives and solutions with the international community is more feasible and useful than the antiquated words that think that louder voices mean a stronger argument!

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

I read Victor Davis Hanson often and sometimes save what he has written. This is excellent and I am going to put some of that he wrote here. I agree with what he said so I will leave it as my comment............

The Dogs of War - Lessons of the 20th Century

"When the dogs of war slip loose, accurate prognosis is almost impossible; the surreal becomes the typical."
"I would not wish to fight the United States - either militarily, politically, or culturally. For every threat, our history teaches us that Americans offer not just a rejoinder, but the specter of a devastating answer of a magnitude almost inconceivable to those now chanting and threatening in the streets of the Middle East. Do they have any idea of what sort of dangerous people we really are? Do they understand the history of the names of those ships now off their coasts, like the USS Peleliu or Enterprise, or the pedigree of the 82nd or 101st Airborne? "
"The Saudis' princes tease us with polite lectures about our errant policies, more obliquely suggesting that our bombing may lose "friends" among the moderate states. Yet America, unlike Saudi Arabia, has not merely the veneer of modern civilization, but is its wellspring. In a real war, despite severe dislocation we can survive, as in the past, without Saudi oil. The royal family and the faux-culture of the Gulf cannot. Fifteen of their citizens helped to murder 6,000 unsuspecting Americans in a time of peace - a single wing of American fighters could end their entire regime in a few days of war. Such are the frightening and horrendous realities that lurk beneath the unspoken surface when the dogs of war are unleashed. Battle indeed is the ultimate nightmare because accustomed rhetoric recedes before the truth of abject military power; and so the more the United States is shrilly hectored, in still more stark contrast loom the silhouettes of aircraft carrier groups and B-52s."
"Reviled by those in the Middle East, caricatured on campuses at home, and second-guessed by pundits of every persuasion, our military and its leadership - by any military standard of the past - have been rather brilliant in waging a war of unprecedented logistical challenges against an elusive enemy."

Veterans Day Faces Expulsion By Schools

Veterans Day faces expulsion by schools

TRENTON, N.J. (Washington Times)

For World War II veteran Sam Stia, a legislative proposal that would cease requiring New Jersey schools to teach about Veterans Day and Memorial Day can be summed up in two words.

"That's wrong," Mr. Stia, 83, said from his Hamilton home, where he flies an American flag at half-staff to honor fallen soldiers. "We're just giving our flag away and our patriotism away."

Mr. Stia and other veterans are steamed about the proposal, which state lawmakers unanimously passed last month. It now awaits action by the governor. It was included as part of a larger measure designed to help control property taxes, mostly by abolishing some laws on school purchasing and public hearings.

Other holidays about which schools no longer would be required to teach include Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, Arbor Day and Commodore Barry Day, which commemorates Revolutionary War hero John Barry.

New Jersey schools must observe the holidays under a 1967 law designed to promote "the development of a higher spirit of patriotism." Florida, Nebraska and Washington are among states with similar laws.

New Jersey American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars groups have asked Gov. Jon Corzine to veto the bill so schools still have to teach about Memorial Day and Veterans Day.

"It's not right. They're not going to know the sacrifices that were made so they can enjoy the protections that they have," said Hank Adams, New Jersey VFW adjutant and an Army and Coast Guard veteran. The governor hasn't decided how to proceed. "We're reviewing that bill," Corzine spokesman Anthony Coley said.
"The law wouldn't ban schools from holding holiday commemorations, but requiring schools to honor the days guarantees children would learn about veterans," said Ray Zawacki, department adjutant for the American Legion of New Jersey.

"If it wasn't for veterans, we wouldn't have been able to maintain the freedoms the Constitution provided to us," said Mr. Zawacki, a Vietnam War Navy veteran.

Wild Thing's comment......

This is WAR!!!! NEVER in my life did I think something like this kind of thing would ever be in question. I am so angry I can feel my blood boiling!

Yesterday Nick was in a store and he asked one of the kids that had the day off from school, did they know what Veterans Day was. The teenager said no, but today is Martin Luther King Day. WTF!!!!!!!

Teachers are teaching, not all but way too many are not teaching. Oh kids know how to protest our troops and get the day off from school to do that as I have posted about that before. BUT GOd forbid they are taught why they live in the land of the free. DAMN!

And so many parents aren't teaching their kids either about Veterans Day and Memorial Day. It makes me sick!!

How to contact Governor Corzine:

Muslim-only Kitchen Kit For Jails

Muslim-only kitchen kit for jails
The Sun Online

JAILS are spending thousands on colour-coded kitchen tools for Muslims, it was revealed last night.

They are getting special red handled equipment to prepare Halal meals.

The move comes after an MPs’ committee recommended more should be done to meet the needs of Muslim prisoners.

So far 900 kits — costing £500 to £800 — have gone to jails across the UK.

The Koran prohibits eating pig meat, which is considered unclean. So the serving spoons, ice cream scoops and ladles are kept in special locked chests to prevent contamination by those used for other inmates.

A Prison Service spokesperson said: “A comprehensive policy is in place for all aspects of Halal products including storage, cooking and service.”

Wild Thing's comment......

How about just feeding them peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. That would take care of the protein and fruit.
Or ah not feed them at all.

North Korea Conducts Emergency Drill Of Top Security

I rrrear my sungrasses at night

It reminds me of the 80's Corey Hart - "Sunglasses At Night".

North conducts emergency drill of top security
January 15, 2007
Joong Ang Daily
Several security organs directly in charge of the safety of North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-il, conducted an emergency drill in Pyongyang on Friday, intelligence sources from South Korea and the United States said.

Military troops and tanks from the Pyongyang Defense Command were deployed rapidly while increased military communications were noted that day.

In addition, the Escort Bureau, in charge of protecting Mr. Kim, also had a busy day, the sources said. The incident sparked a flurry of activity by the South's intelligence community, as the increased military activity in the North's capital did not fit the usual pattern of winter drills conducted by the North's military.

The fact that security organs closely guarding the North's leader's safety were involved in the activities sparked momentary suspicion among some sources that a military coup might have occurred in the North.

By the end of the day, however, intelligence officials here concluded that the drill was to prepare for any unforeseen changes inside the power structure of Kim Jong-il's inner circle.

A source familiar with the circumstances said, "We have confirmed that the activities pertained not to a real situation but were part of a drill to respond to a possible scenario."

The source added that the situation did not require an emergency meeting by authorities in the South.

Nevertheless, intelligence officials said that drills of this kind rarely happen in the North.

Murtha Proposes Bill To Choke Funding For Surge

Murtha proposes bill to choke funding for surge

Washington Times ( for complete article)

Rep. John P. Murtha, Pennsylvania Democrat, yesterday announced plans to introduce legislation that would cut off funding for President Bush's proposed surge of American troops into Baghdad.

"I think our hearings will show that even Republicans will vote with us when the bill finally comes up," Mr. Murtha, chairman of the Appropriations defense subcommittee, said during an appearance on ABC's "This Week."
Mr. Murtha said that he doesn't think Democrats can stop Mr. Bush from instituting the first wave of a troop surge, but that his panel will be able to pass legislation to stop further waves within a month. "I don't know how many troops they can get in the field before we get our bill up and passed in the Congress," he said.
But Mr. Murtha told ABC, "We're going to have extensive hearings, and we're going to look at exactly how much money he has."
"And we're going to try to change the direction of this war," he said.
White House spokesman Tony Snow told reporters last week that Mr. Bush already has the funds needed to support a troop surge. "Funding for the forces and to dispatch them to the region, it's already in the budget," he said. "So we're going to proceed with those plans."

Several Democrats, including Massachusetts Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, have proposed a nonbinding "disapproval" of a surge.

Wild Thing's comment.....

You know what I wish, I wish that our troops would not have to know about this stuff. I know that is not possible, but in my heart I would love if the only thing our troops heard about was total support and gratitude.

Murtha and choke in the same sentence. hmmmm just thinking here......

California Muslim Arrested after Threat to 'Kill All Jews'

California Muslim Arrested after Threat to 'Kill All Jews'

PALM SPRINGS A 35-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly made terrorist threats inside a Palm Springs bar, police said.

Officers detained Haider Mohammad of Palm Springs about 8 p.m. Friday at the Hair of the Dog Bar at 238 North Palm Canyon after he allegedly said he was going to "kill all Jews," said Palm Springs Police Sgt. Mitch Spike.

According to witnesses, Mohammad also allegedly claimed to have an alliance with executed former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and to be affiliated with al-Qaeda.

Mohammad was detained on suspicion of making terrorist threats in what was called a hate crime, Spike said. FBI investigators who were contacted by Palm Springs police determined that Mohammad was not a person of interest, he said.

Mohammad was booked at the Palm Springs jail and released after posting $25,000 bail.

Wild Thing's comment......

What the heck, what does it take for someone to be a person of interest. I would assume that there are levels of how much a person would be a person of interest but my gosh at least don't label this jerk and NOT a person of interest. "Not a person of interest," eh? If threatening to kill Jews and bragging about ties to al-Qaeda doesn't get the FBI "interested," what will?

Barney Frank Throws Hissy Fit On House Floor ~ Hilarious

The Republican arguing with power-hungry Barney Frank is Patrick McHenry. McHenry rose to offer an amendment that would exempt American Samoa from the stem-cell bill — a clear dig at the fact that Samoa, which is home to StarKist factories that employ nearly 75% of the island’s work force, was conspicuously exempt from the minimum-wage bill that had passed the day before. Why is that important? Because StarKist is a branch of Del Monte Foods Co., which has its headquarters in San Francisco, Nancy Pelosi’s district.

One thing that stands out besides this being so funny, the left has a lot of freakin nerve to ridicule the way President Bush speaks! Barney Frank always sounds like Elmer Fudd. ( with apologizes to Elmer Fudd of course)

Chavez, Ahmadinejad Plan Anti-U.S. Fund

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez(L) welcomes Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the Miraflores Presidential Palace in Caracas

Chavez, Ahmadinejad Plan Anti-U.S. Fund

Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - fiery anti-American leaders whose moves to extend their influence have alarmed Washington - said Saturday they would help finance investment projects in other countries seeking to thwart U.S. domination.

The two countries had previously revealed plans for a joint $2 billion fund to finance investments in Venezuela and Iran, but the leaders said Saturday the money would also be used for projects in friendly countries throughout the developing world.

"It will permit us to underpin investments ... above all in those countries whose governments are making efforts to liberate themselves from the (U.S.) imperialist yoke," Chavez said.
"This fund, my brother," the Venezuelan president said, referring affectionately to Ahmadinejad, "will become a mechanism for liberation."
"Death to U.S. imperialism!" he said.

Ahmadinejad, who is starting a tour of left-leaning countries in the region, called it a "very important" decision that would help promote "joint cooperation in third countries," especially in Latin America and Africa.

Chavez and Ahmadinejad have been increasingly united by their deep-seated antagonism toward the Bush administration. Chavez has become a leading defender of Iran's nuclear ambitions, accusing the Washington of using the issue as a pretext to attack Tehran.

Ahmadinejad, meanwhile, has called Chavez "the champion of the struggle against imperialism."

Wild Thing's comment.....

At the recent Non Aligned Summit, Venezuela and Iran sided with the genocidal Arab masters of Sudan against the Black sub-Saharan Africans they are murdering in Sudan. Venezuela and Iran endorsed the Non Aligned Communique telling the UN not to interfere with the genocide. MSM buried that story and now presents these phonies as champions of the Third World.

CNN and Opinion Research Announce Formal Polling Partnership

Opinion Research Corporation, a leading provider of global market research and consulting services, today announced the establishment of a formal polling partnership with CNN, one of the world's most respected and trusted sources for news and information. The CNN Poll will become the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll.

"Opinion Research Corporation's reputation for independent, objective analysis and its excellent reputation in the industry make the firm the ideal polling partner for CNN," said Sam Feist, CNN's Political Director. "As the network gears up to offer the most in-depth and expansive coverage of the 2008 election, Opinion Research Corporation will be a key part of giving viewers the accurate and relevant information they demand to help them make decisions."

Gupta, donated $1 million to Clinton's presidential library fund, has stayed overnight in the Lincoln Bedroom. Clinton, who calls him "Vin," slept over at Gupta's house in the heartland after a fund-raiser. Days before he left office, Clinton appointed Gupta to the Board of Trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center of the Performing Arts.

Vin Gupta is also linked to "billionaire philanthropist" Warren Buffett as the two of them co-hosted a $1000 per-plate fundraiser dinner at Gupta's own estate in Nebraska for Hillary back in 2000, where she left with at least $100,000.

At a private $1,000-per-plate dinner at the estate of InfoUSA founder Vin Gupta, the First Enabler emerged with more than $100,000 in Nebraska cash. Billionaire investor Warren Buffett, who cohosted the event, also accompanied Mrs. Clinton on a shopping spree at his Borsheim's Fine Jewelry and Gifts store. She emerged from the store with three shopping bags, and, according to the World Herald, later told guests at the dinner that she "may have left as many dollars in Omaha as she would take back to New York"

Gupta, the CEO of InfoUSA, an Omaha, Neb.-based database company, is coming under fire from investors, including Cardinal Capital, the Greenwich, Conn.-based hedge fund whose last target was newspaper baron Conrad Black, for a variety of alleged offenses, including funneling InfoUSA funds through private companies he controls to pay for things such as jet travel, a fancy yacht and a skybox at University of Nebraska football games.

The Clinton's are sharpening their daggers and mixing their poison and practicing their lies well in advance of the "opening day" of the campaign season.

Royal Marine Sniper Celebrates With Cigar After Killing Taliban Officer

Sniper celebrates with cigar after killing Taliban officer

A ROYAL Marine sniper from Edinburgh has described marking his first kill with a cigar after "slotting" a Taliban commander from more than 1000 metres.

Crackshot Royal Marine (45 Commando) sniper Dallas Turner, 27, was among the soldiers who described their dramatic stories in their own words.

He said: "We were down in Garmsir southern Helmand on December 21 and we were in full view of the Taliban front line.
"They were firing at us all day but we could see only their heads pop up from time to time moving about their positions.
"They were hiding in abandoned compounds in the suburbs. I fired three rounds from an Afghan National Police sangar sentry post but I didn't hit anyone.
"The next day they the Taliban were back at the same position and one walked into view from behind a wall.
"He was just standing there. It was beautiful. He was only exposed a few seconds. I didn't need to adjust my rifle sights as they were set right from the previous day. Just like in training, I breathed slowly, inhaled and pulled the trigger. "
"The 338 calibre bullet travels at about 800 metres a second so it would have taken just over a second to reach him. He was hit full in the upper chest. It took him a couple of seconds to drop but I knew he was slotted dead.

"If one of these big 338 rounds hits you in the chest, even from that distance, it will cause a lethal amount of damage.

"I just graduated from sniper school late last year after nine weeks' training.

"It was my first kill. I had a cigar afterwards. I didn't lose any sleep about it. He was a Taliban commander after all."

The Taliban militants were killed and captured after ambushing a joint Nato and Afghan patrol in Mizan district in Zabul province on Sunday, said Younis Akhunzada, the district police chief.

Police also recovered four AK-47 assault rifles and two rocket-propelled grenade.

In a recent four day operation, codenamed Operation Clay, Royal Marine Commandos wiped out a vital Taliban training camp, killing dozens of fighters.

The force succeeded in securing a safe passage to a mountain dam - once the biggest source of electricity in the whole of Afghanistan.

In dramatic scenes caught on army cameras, the Marines engaged Afghan fighters as they waded through a river.

Dodd Enters Presidential Race Now Kerry Not Lonely At Bottom

Democratic Sen. Dodd Enters Presidential Race

Sen. Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.) plunged into the 2008 presidential race yesterday, an admitted dark-horse candidate for the Democratic nomination who nonetheless said his experience and record qualify him to lead the country at a time of terrorism abroad and economic insecurities at home.

He began his campaign in outspoken opposition to President Bush's newly announced plan to send 21,500 additional troops to Iraq in an effort to quell the violence there. Dodd said he backs a proposal by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) that would prevent Bush from deploying any new troops until specifically authorized by Congress.

Dodd voted for the October 2002 congressional resolution authorizing the war, but he said that measure is obsolete, given how radically the U.S. mission in Iraq has changed since the invasion.

He said the new policy will not work. "We have an obligation, before the troops are sent, to vote against it," he said in a telephone interview.
But he said he would not vote to cut off funds for the additional troops once they are deployed. "I'm not going to cut off funds to kids who are sitting in harm's way," he said. "That's why this debate has to happen before they're sent."

Dodd, one of the Senate's leading liberals, is a former general chairman of the Democratic National Committee and has served in Congress for more than three decades. But he begins his bid for the White House overshadowed by Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.). Both are expected to make their intentions known by the end of the month, with Obama's decision coming as early as next week.

Dodd said he is realistic about his campaign but stressed that, given the challenges the country faces, voters will put a premium on experience and leadership in selecting.

Wild Thing's comment......

Hahaha oh my this is too funny.

Chris Dodd announces he's running for President.... and the nation yawns, rolls over on its right side, and goes back to sleep.

Good news for Kerry. Now Kerry has moved up to second to last place.

Iran Not Happy With Bush 's Strategy ~ DUH!

Iran Condemns Bush's Iraq Strategy
Fars News Agency

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini here on Thursday condemned the new strategy of the US President George W. Bush for Iraq, describing it as a further effort by the US to continue occupation of that country.

According to a statement released by the Foreign Ministry's Information and Press Bureau, Hosseini further viewed Bush's new decision to increase the number of the US troops in Iraq as an improper gift given to the American people at the beginning of the new Christian year.

"Increasing the number of the US troops in Iraq can spark expansion of insecurities and tension in that country and will fail to help to the settlement of Iraq's problems,"

Stressing that the immediate withdrawal of the US troops from Iraq constitutes the only way for the US to get rid of its frequent problems, the foreign ministry spokesman said:

"Deployment of Patriot Missiles in Iraq is viewed as another effort made by the United States to create a protective security umbrella for the Zionist regime of Israel through an Islamic state and it is condemned by both Iran and the Muslims worldwide."

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

OH ....OK, we can't do it now because the MSM, Rats and now Iran doesn't agree with it.

Iran is really saying "we are very concerned about your plan to come and kick our asses all over the place and make us go away." "That is not very nice. We only sponsor nice terrorists with great personalities and great imaginations."

Ding Dong, Avon calling. BOOM!

"Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long
and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival." -- Winston Churchill

From President Bush's speech

"We are also taking other steps to bolster the security of Iraq and protect American interests in the Middle East. I recently ordered the deployment of an additional carrier strike group to the region. We will expand intelligence sharing – and deploy Patriot air defense systems to reassure our friends and allies. We will work with the governments of Turkey and Iraq to help them resolve problems along their border. And we will work with others to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons and dominating the region."

Bush Warning and slap to Iran:

"Succeeding in Iraq also requires defending its territorial integrity – and stabilizing the region in the face of the extremist challenge. This begins with addressing Iran and Syria. These two regimes are allowing terrorists and insurgents to use their territory to move in and out of Iraq. Iran is providing material support for attacks on American troops. We will disrupt the attacks on our forces. We will interrupt the flow of support from Iran and Syria. And we will seek out and destroy the networks providing advanced weaponry and training to our enemies in Iraq."

Turbin Durbin did his best to deflat our troops. Durbin is a pig that fell over the cliff with all the demons that entered his body.

Democrats on War and Battle


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

But of course Teddy hasn't approved of it yet. And Harry Reid always look like an undertaker? No matter what the occasion, every time I see him I think someone in his vicinity just died. Biden will be rude and arrogant.

The Democrats want Bush to fail, the troops to fail and they eat, sleep, and breath this 24/7. Their hate has taken over their common sense. Because they have the same information we do. They know that the terrorists hate us, want us all dead, beheaded. But we will hear more of their non-stop talk, and threats of non funding our military.

Just this last thing.....lift the restrictions on the troops we have in Iraq as well thank you ever so! Let the troops do their job, and not be worrying about prosecution by anyone for doing so. How ironic is it that the moonbat protestors, liberal media spin, and Dem obstruction have actually prolonged the war. Their PC obsession of this war and how it is fought has caused MORE injuries to our troops and more deaths. Those very deaths they use, yes USE as a tool to attempt to make their sick point.

Kennedy Fights Surge and Democrats Plan Symbolic Vote

Changed graphic from earlier graphic.

Kennedy said he will propose legislation requiring US President George W. Bush to get congressional approval before deploying any additional troops to Iraq.

Kennedy fights 'immense new mistake' of troop surge
WASHINGTON Sen. Edward Kennedy launched a pre-emptive strike on Tuesday against President Bush's anticipated plans to send more troops to Iraq.

The Massachusetts Democrat introduced legislation to require congressional approval before force levels can be increased.

Kennedy, a leading opponent of the war and senior member of the Armed Services Committee, said any troop surge would be "an immense new mistake."

"Today, I am introducing legislation to reclaim the rightful role of Congress and the people's right to a full voice in the president's plan to send more troops to Iraq," Kennedy will say, according to advance excerpts of comments he is scheduled to deliver Tuesday afternoon at the National Press Club.

"My bill will say that no additional troops can be sent and no additional dollars can be spent on such an escalation unless and until Congress approves the president's plan."

Kennedy was among 23 senators, 22 of them Democrats, who voted against the March 2003 invasion of Iraq. Kennedy called it "the best vote I've cast in my 44 years in the United States Senate."

Kennedy said in January 2005 that the United States should begin withdrawing its troops. He also has invited intense White House criticism for drawing parallels between the war in Iraq and the Vietnam War.

Democrats Plan Symbolic Votes Against Bush’s Iraq Troop Plan

Democratic leaders said Tuesday that they intended to hold symbolic votes in the House and Senate on President Bush’s plan to send more troops to Baghdad, forcing Republicans to take a stand on the proposal and seeking to isolate the president politically over his handling of the war.

Senate Democrats decided to schedule a vote on the resolution after a closed-door meeting on a day when Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts introduced legislation to require Mr. Bush to gain Congressional approval before sending more troops to Iraq. The Senate vote is expected as early as next week, after an initial round of committee hearings on the plan Mr. Bush will lay out for the nation Wednesday night

The office of Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House, followed with an announcement that the House would also take up a resolution in opposition to a troop increase.

Wild Thing's comment.....

I watched Kennedy's speech. It was a barf-o-matic. Instead of waiting till after Bush speaks tonight. NO, that would be too much to ask from these people. Instead they are determined once again to demoralize the troops!

Kennedy's most erroneous assumption is that only a political solution can be effective and not a military one.
Sure, it is preferable to use diplomacy and tact IF, and only if, it can actually succeed. In Iraq, it will not, against the terrorists it will not, not in any country.

The Shiites hate the Sunni and the Baathists, both from years of Saddam's tortures and from a religious feud. The Sunni hate the Shiites because they consider them practically infidels from the true Muslim faith, and because they want to resume absolute power over Iraq. The Kurds' fondest wish is for both the Muslim clans to cease to exist, along with much of Turkey. All of them, ALL OF THEM, want us not to meddle in their affairs and the Sunni and Shia want us dead, praise Allah. All of them have been desensitized to horrible violence and are eager to wreak destruction on one another. It is the substance of a sick adult comic book, yet it is real.

So Teddy, just how do you propose to come to a political solution in Iraq? Should we invite Ahmanutjob and Syria and the other Prophet players in for tea? Should we promise them endless entitlements and handouts if they will just stop killing each other? Should we put the UN in charge of the Political Police and trust that they all lived happily ever after?

No Ted, you fat manslaughtering schmuck. Politics are for rich Massachusetts gentry, not for tribal feuds. Saddam had the "political solution" all figured out. No, we either need to kick ass and take names or cut and run with disastrous consequences. We know what you would do. Now step out of the way and let Uncle Sam show these murderous delinquents what Authority looks like. They wish for death. We have that available.

Let's do it. Then we can leave like men, not like vanquished infidels. BUT let's do it right! STOP HINDERING OUR TROOPS! Stop making them serve with their hands tired behind their backs! Stop allowing the Media, the politicians to run this war. It is NOT their job, it is our awesome military's job and they ROCK at doing what they do best.

If we send more troops then do it with the purpose of turning this around and giving them the key to the city so to speak of Military power and strength and NO more PC allowed!

Tell the Kennedy's of this world to STFU, stand aside your opinion drowned! And start taking names of the traitors in our country and lock them up to start with in their punishment. Close the borders and take this war on Islam seriously because I can bet the farm that the terrorists sure as hell do.

In Country With Out Troops ~ God Bless You & Keep You Safe

2-8 Cav Troops Uncover Cache, Detain Seven
By 1st BCT, 1st Cav. Div. Public Affairs

CAMP TAJI, Iraq - Multi-National Division - Baghdad Soldiers uncovered a cache of weapons and detained seven suspects near here Jan. 8.

Soldiers from Company A, 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division found the weapons during a cordon and search operation at a site known for insurgent activity.

Weapons found at the site included three AK-47 assault rifles, a sniper rifle, an Russian-made machine gun and a buried 55-gallon drum containing a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, four RPG rounds and three RPG accelerators.

The seven suspects were detained for further questioning.

BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition forces killed three and wounded one terrorist as they transported and attempted to emplace improvised explosive devices in the vicinity of Ramadi Sunday.

The individuals have been linked to a weapons cache Coalition forces located and destroyed numerous warheads, rockets, missiles and missile launchers in the area just south of Lake Thar Thar previously the same day.

The terrorists were killed by a Coalition air strike about six miles northeast of Ramadi before they could complete their activity.

The weapons cache was located less than 15 miles from the site where the terrorists were digging a hole to place an IED

Former Bosnian joins Army, supports adopted home

AD DAWR, Iraq – Americans join the military for many different reasons, but for one man it became a chance to show his loyalty to his new home. After Sept. 11, Spc. Mladen Sudarevic, now from Aurora, Colo., stepped forward with mixed emotions of loyalty, honor and outrage as he enlisted to the 324th Psychological Tactical Company, U.S. Army Reserves.

“I joined the U.S. Army Reserves so I could give a little back to the country that gave so much to me,” Sudarevic said. “I felt compelled to defend my adopted country after the 9/11 attack.”

Sudarevic endured the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina and moved to the United States when he was 17. After the attacks, he felt like his country was under siege once again.

“I wasn’t old enough to serve in the military in Bosnia during their civil war,” Sudarevic said. “I am old enough now, and I feel American these days.”
“I think all Iraqis will look back on this experience and understand it was for the betterment of their country,” Sudarevic said. “They will eventually understand, although painful, it was a better part of their history.”

Sudarevic thinks the military is a great experience. He feels that he is serving his new country to the best of his ability.

“I was lucky that the United States let me come in as a refugee of the war,” Sudarevic said. “I came to Colorado and the people were great. I had awesome sponsors that helped me transition into society.”

Sudarevic came over with his mother, his only living relative and very few possessions.

“We lost everything in the war,” he said. “I didn’t speak English very well but I was able to bring over a translation dictionary. I tried to learn ten new words everyday.”

As Sudarevic was learning English, he was working hard to become independent of the assistance the system was giving him.

“I heard that you could go from one business to another turning in applications so I did this -- by the third day I had a job at a popular fast food restaurant,” he said. I worked there for a year, long enough to learn English and to take another step up the ladder, he said.

His personal records were also lost so he had to test out of high school. Soon after, he received a scholarship to Colorado Mountain College and received an associate’s degree in Liberal Arts. Now, when Sudarevic isn’t working with the Army Reserves, he’s making a six- figure-income working in the computer fraud and security industry.

Even though his friends were able to get assistance in different countries, he does not feel they have had the same opportunities he’s been given in the U.S.

“I didn’t need any hand outs,” said Sudarevic. “I just needed an opportunity to help myself, and that’s what the United States gave me. I did it with my own hard work.”
“I believe the United States is the land of opportunities,” said Sudarevic. “Those who are willing to take advantage of them have a good chance at succeeding in life.”

We Be Kickin' Islamic Butt In Somalia ~ America Does NOT Forget

The AC-130U is armed with a 25mm Gatling-gun (capable of firing 1800 rounds per minute), a single-barrel, rapid-fire 40mm Bofors cannon, and a 105mm Howitzer. The AC-130U replaced the two 20mm cannon used on the AC-130H with one trainable 25mm cannon while retaining the other weapons. The AC-130U employs the latest technologies and can attack two targets simultaneously.

U.S. Gunship fires on al-Qaeda Leader and Operative in Somalia
An AC-130 fires on wanted al-Qaeda leader and a ringeader of the 1998 U.S. Embasy bombings in Kenya & Tanzania

The United States forces of Combine Joint Task Force Horn of Africa based out of Djibouti have actively weighed in on the fighting in Somalia. CBS News reports an AC-130 gunship has struck at al-Qaeda's command cell in Somalia.

The gunship flew from its base in Dijibouti down to the southern tip of Somalia, Martin reports, where the al Qaeda operatives had fled after being chased out of the capital of Mogadishu by Ethiopian troops backed by the United States.

The AC-130 gunship is capable of firing thousands of rounds per second...

The targets were described as "the senior al Qaeda leader in East Africa and an al Qaeda operative wanted for his involvement in the 1998 bombings of two American embassies in Africa." Abu Taha al-Sudani (or Tariq Abdullah) is al-Qaeda's leader in East Africa, and Fazul Abdullah Mohammed and Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan are the two wanted operatives in the embassy bombings.

Rest of story HERE

Wild Thing's comment......

How'd you like to see that coming at you in the dark of night where these scum hide? They deserve it and more, these vile beings from hell that dragged the bodies of our soldiers through their streets. It was the Clinton administration that refused to allow either armor or an AC130 strike as our Rangers were being butchered.

It's good to know they're being used, and dead Al Queda are always a good thing. We lost a lot of good men that day. And it was one of the things that convinced Bin Laden that he could strike the US with no repercussios.

Unleash the military! Let them do what they do better than anyone in the world!! Most excellent! BRAVO!

Al Sharpton Considers Running For President

Sharpton considers running for president

NEW YORK - Civil rights activist Al Sharpton said Monday he is seriously considering a run for president.

"I don't hear any reason not to," Sharpton, 52, said in an interview during an urban affairs conference sponsored by another civil rights leader, the Rev.Jesse Jackson
"If we're talking about the urban agenda, can you tell me anybody else in the field who's representing that right now?" Sharpton asked. "We clearly have a reason to run, and whether we do it or not we'll see over the next couple of months."
"Right now we're hearing a lot of media razzle dazzle," Sharpton said. "I'm not hearing a lot of meat, or a lot of content. I think when the meat hits the fire, we'll find out if it's just fat or if there's some real meat there."

Sharpton said the candidate who impressed him most so far was former North Carolina Sen.John Edwards, who has made poverty the central issue of his campaign.

Wild Thing's comment......

LMAO oh my gawd, well thank you Al, we needed some comic relief.

Guard the Borders Blogburst ~ An Exclusive!

Mexican Gunmen Involved in Arizona Border Incident Actually Uniformed Mexican Force

This weeks post isi brought to you
By Heidi at Euphoric Reality

The excursion into U.S. territory last week by "Mexican gunmen" was not a chance confrontation between the Arizona National Guard and untrained illegal immigrants, but a deliberate "perimeter probe" by an infantry-trained, uniformed Mexican force, officials say.

Euphoric Reality has learned in exclusive interviews with high-ranking sources within both the Arizona National Guard and the U.S. Border Patrol that the incident the mainstream media calls a "standoff" was in reality a military-style operation, carried out by a unit of Mexican troops dressed in military uniforms, flak jackets, and armed with AK-47s in an apparent operation to probe the border defenses and test the limits of the National Guard troops. Using easily recognizable infantry movement tactics (such as arm and hand signals and flanking maneuvers), the Mexican unit deliberately moved in a military formation across the border from Mexico, where they were picked up by National Guard surveillance.

As the hostile force moved north over the next three hours, deeper into Arizona, National Guardsmen wearing night vision goggles were able to ascertain that the approaching gunmen were indeed uniformed (including PAGST helmets) and heavily armed. When the Mexican unit came within approximately 100 yards of the EIT site, the Guardsmen repositioned themselves in order to maintain surveillance and tactical advantage. They observed the Mexican unit sweep through the EIT site, and then rapidly withdrew back into Mexico. No shots were fired by either the Mexican gunmen or the Guardsmen. Border Patrol was on the scene within minutes of the Mexican unit's withdrawal.

The Guardsmen, through an Arizona Border Patrol official, confirmed that the incident appeared to be an intelligence-gathering exercise designed to ascertain what the National Guard's response would be to certain tactics. It is not an isolated incident, and many such probes have been reported by the Guardsmen assigned to the area. Though no shots were fired during this particular incident, shots have been fired near and in the vicinity of the soldiers at the EIT site in other situations, though not at the soldiers themselves. It is not clear from the uniforms if the Mexican soldiers were official Mexican federales or mercenaries hired by the drug cartels.

Since then, follow-on news reports have included statements from the Border Patrol that no shots were fired. This was confirmed today by Major Paul Aguirre, a Public Affairs Officer (PAO) for the Arizona National Guard. Rumors have circulated that the Guardsmen were not armed, and thus unable to defend themselves - and that is not the case. Both Major Aguirre and Rob Daniels, a Public Information Officer (PIO) for the Arizona Border Patrol, state that all Guardsmen assigned to EITs are armed, specifically with M16s and sometimes a sidearm. As well, there have been some contradictory news reports that stated the gunmen came "within yards" of the Guardsmen, while other reports state that the gunmen were approximately 100 yards away. Mr. Daniels clarified that the gunmen came as close as 100 yards to the Guardsmen. He also stated that the Guardsmen did not "retreat" but tactically repositioned themselves to maintain surveillance of the group of armed men while simultaneously radioing for Border Patrol agents. He asserted that the Guardsmen had followed their protocols perfectly, and that their services were invaluable to the Border Patrol agents.

Pelosi Hints At Denying Bush Iraq Funds

Pelosi hints at denying Bush Iraq funds

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said newly empowered Democrats will not give President Bush a blank check to wage war in Iraq, hinting they could deny funding if he seeks additional troops.

"If the president chooses to escalate the war, in his budget request, we want to see a distinction between what is there to support the troops who are there now," she said in an interview broadcast Sunday.
"The American people and the Congress support those troops. We will not abandon them. But if the president wants to add to this mission, he is going to have to justify it and this is new for him because up until now the Republican Congress has given him a blank check with no oversight, no standards, no conditions," said Pelosi, D-Calif.

Her comments on CBS' "Face the Nation" came as Bush worked to finish his new war plan that could send as many as 20,000 additional U.S. troops to Iraq and provide more money for jobs and reconstruction programs.

Bush is expected to announce his plan as early as Wednesday.

When asked about the possibility of cutting off funds, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer declined to say whether Democrats might do so, saying only that the current strategy clearly is "not working."

"I don't want to anticipate that," said Hoyer, D-Md., on "Fox News Sunday."

Some military officials, familiar with the discussions, say Bush at first could send 8,000 to 10,000 new troops to Baghdad, and possibly Anbar Province, and leave himself the option of adding more later if security does not improve.

"Based on the advice of current and former military leaders, we believe this tactic would be a serious mistake," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

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

IMO just saying the fact that the Speaker and Majority leader have publicly raised the possibility of defunding the war will massively boost the insurgents' morale and put our troops in even more danger. The way they are talking it doesn't even have to do with sending more troops. They really would love to stop the funding to our troops.

Just more proof that "we support the troops" has always been a lie. They have always hated the military and they always will. Stupid b!tch, she's not hurting President Bush, she is hurting the soldiers & Marines in the field. Not that she'd care either way. They are hell bent on losing this war and they are letting the insurgents know it.

I'll never understand why the Democrats, the media and many Americans are so eager to give those who have killed our soldiers... a free pass.

Once the first US soldier was killed-every American , regardless of how they felt before the war, should have been behind the effort. What kind of people let the killers of our troops go unpunished ? I'll never understand what makes a Democrat tick-never.

The battle field is not just over in the middle east .. it's also here at home

Dems mantra, "Don't blame me, I voted for Stalin."

Where's a Tsunami When You Really Need One?

Peace activists beach at Bush


About 1,200 peace activists lay in the sand to spell out "IMPEACH!" in 100-foot tall letters on San Francisco's Ocean Beach Saturday. Their pointed message, aimed at President Bush, was engineered by local cabbie and travel writer Brad Newsham. He recruited volunteers from around the Bay Area to form the demand that stretched across the sand. Supporters of his "Beach Impeach" project photographed the event from a helicopter hovering overhead.

Maybe joan Baez could borrow that guy's 12-string and lead them all in a singalong ---Wild Thing

This is has been done before, probably by their parents in the 60's. They sure have no imagination. I guess they didn't have enough people to spell out "WE'RE A BUNCH OF LOSER MOONBATS!!"

In Country With Our Troops ~ Thank you

First Lt. Sonia Nieves and her brother, Maj. Rafael Saenz, spent the last two years apart, but were able to reunite for Christmas in Baghdad's International Zone.

Brother and sister soldier team reunites for Christmas in Baghdad

BAGHDAD – A brother and sister soldier team who had not seen each other for two years were reunited on Christmas Eve in the International Zone while deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Maj. Rafael Saenz, an active duty battle major assigned to 1st Cavalry Division based in Fort Hood, Texas, and 1st Lt. Sonia Nieves, a reservist Health Services Advisor for the Baghdad Provincial Reconstruction Team assigned to the 422nd Civil Affairs Battalion from Greensboro, N.C., were grateful they could spend time with family for the holidays in of all places, Iraq.

Growing up in Puerto Rico, they share a combined 39 years of Army service. Saenz is on his second stint with OIF and has been in-country this time for three months. Nieves has been here for eight.

"Walking around the FOB [Forward Operating Base] with my sister is like walking around with a politician! She knows everybody here and everybody here knows her," said Saenz.

Saenz and Nieves had not seen each other since Christmas 2004.

"We had a great Christmas this year! We drove around the IZ, took pictures at the Crossed Swords, checked out the new embassy, went to shops at Camp Prosperity, looked at the 14th of July bridge and toured the palace," said Nieves. "We talked about family and reminisced. It was nice to catch up and to see a familiar face."

That familiar face needed a little luck to make the trip from Camp Liberty to see his sister in the IZ.

"This reunion almost didn't happen," said Saenz. "I had two ways of getting to here - fly by helo or via convoy - and both can be difficult to catch a ride on, especially on Christmas Eve!"

He tried both, and got bumped from both. He did eventually get a ride, but the trip was anything but uneventful.

"Luckily, I was able to jump on convoy with the 1st Cavalry Band that was traveling to the IZ to perform," he said. "On the way we crossed paths with an Iraqi who had a gunshot wound to the shoulder. We stopped to render aid, picked him up and took him to the Combat Support Hospital."

After pulling an all-night shift, Saenz started the trip at 9 a.m. and had to be back to work at 9 p.m. He said losing a few nights of sleep was worth it to be with family for the holidays.

"It is difficult being away from my wife and kids during the holidays, this is two years in a row now and it is hard," said Saenz. "So it was so great to take this chance and meet up with my sister, spending time with her during this special time of the year means a lot."

Soldiers from A Co., 2nd Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division talk with merchants in front of their produce store outside the city of Samarra. The meeting was an opportunity for the Soldiers to make it clear that they were fighting for the merchants' security.

Paratroopers have say in word on the street

By Sgt. Michael Tuttle
5th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment

SAMARRA — A group of 82nd Airborne Division Soldiers met with local merchants at their storefronts along Tar Tar Road outside the city to inform them about operations in the area.

The talks are part of efforts by A Company, 2nd Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment to counter rumors and misinformation spread by insurgents to the local Iraqi public, said Capt. Adisa King, A Co. commander.

“It’s a chance to tell the public what we’re about,” said 1st Lt. Daniel Robbins, platoon leader. “We can give them information directly so they understand what our purpose is and that we’re fighting for their security.”

Robbins first made sure that the merchants understood the need for his platoon to block off the street in front of their stores while they spoke. He described the dangers of vehicle borne improvised explosive devices and explained why local drivers must stop at cordons.

The area near the businesses on Tar Tar Road has been a hot spot for insurgent activity, including five to eight IED attacks there per month, according to Robbins. The merchants were also informed of a large weapons cache uncovered recently in the area.

This exchange of information will hopefully build more trust and cooperation among the Soldiers and the locals.

"We are trying to gather information and learn about them, as well as make it clear why it’s important for them to fight the insurgency,” said Robbins.

Robbins handed out tip cards to the merchants that included his unit’s contact information in Arabic. He offered to help them if their businesses faced any type of threat.

“We will fight for you but we need you to help us out,” Robbins told a group of merchants before moving on. “You’re out here all the time. If you see anything, give us a call.”

The tips cards have been an effective way to continue communicating with locals.

“We have gotten calls fairly frequently,” Robbins said. “Sometimes they’re scared to give us information on the street and feel safer talking on the phone.”

Muslims Protest Fast Food Franchise

I saw this at Google and just had to put this graphic with this Satire, it is so funny and the Satire is funny too. The image was called " Coke-heads praying". At first when I saw it I thought it was a row of Coca Cola bottles in the background...but look closer.......hahaha------Wild Thing

Muslims Protest Fast Food Franchise


Written by Ayers Lampblack, a retired columnist and news editor, grain elevator weigh scale operator and Ernest Borgnine stunt double. He makes his home in Cosmos, Minn.

Human Events

CHICAGO—The debut of a new theme restaurant in suburban Chicago featuring a menu of foods forbidden by Islamic law and waitresses clad in revealing uniforms has sparked an uproar among local Muslims who claim the restaurant is an affront to Islam.

The December 27 opening of a Burqa King franchise in Winnetka and the subsequent furor over the establishment’s dining theme has drawn the attention of local Muslim clerics and activists, and aimed a spotlight on former Bush Administration Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Officials with Winnetka Holy Outreach to Counsel and Advise Islamic Religious Sects (WHOCAIRS) announced Wednesday that they would organize a demonstration and prayer vigil outside the newly opened restaurant near the intersection of Tower and Foxdale Road to protest what one organizer called the restaurant’s “insensitivity to culinary diversity.”

“Not only can Muslims not sit at the lunch counter here, Muslims cannot even enter this den of humiliation,” said WHOCAIRS Executive Director Ibrahim Bertrand-Reynolds. “This establishment represents a new low in offensiveness.”

Critics noted the Burqa King menu, which features a variety of haram, or unlawful food in Muslim culture, includes frog legs and pork rinds as appetizers; slabs of barbecued pork ribs, blood sausage and ham as entrees; and desserts made from gelatin produced from pork byproducts. All fried food served at Burqa King is cooked in lard, which contains pig fat and is subsequently forbidden by Islamic law.

The restaurant serves beer and has applied for a liquor license with plans to open a full-service bar on the premises. Traditional Muslims are not permitted to consume alcohol except for medicinal purposes.

“To offer only food that is not halal (lawful) is just another egregious example of the indignity we must endure,” said Omar al Akbar al Abdul, an imam from nearby Northbrook
The manager of the restaurant, 53-year-old Craig Baker of Champaign-Urbana, admitted al Akbar al Abdul and others were entitled to their opinion but said he was not considering any changes in response to the planned protests. “These people need to get a hobby or something. I mean, it’s a restaurant, OK?” said Baker. “Besides, what are they gonna do, like, saw my head off with a dull knife on the Internet?”

The nature of the food at Burqa King is not the only thing upsetting area Muslims. Waitresses are required to wear abbreviated burqas with sheer veils, stockings and garters, and high heeled shoes, revealing more of their bodies than the traditional garment worn by many Muslim women.

“This is a great disgrace upon the burqa and the modesty of our women,” said Abdul al Omar al Akbar, a Muslim activist from Chicago. “Humiliating Muslim women in such a way is not in keeping with our long tradition of forbidding women from learning to read, drive or balance a checkbook.”

There is also speculation that political overtones accompanied the opening of this particular Burqa King. Al Akbar al Abdul questioned whether the restaurant was located in Winnetka as a way of honoring Rumsfeld, who was born there in 1932.

“I cannot remain silent when this Satan [Rumsfeld] is honored by the opening of such an offensive establishment,” said al Akbar al Abdul, who threatened additional prayer protests on the H Concourse at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport if the restaurant is not forced by village officials to change its menu or close.

Others in the religious community were less concerned with the establishment. “I keep Kosher, they don’t keep Kosher. This bothers me why?” said Rabbi Shlomo Garfinkle with the Temple Bnai Shalom synagogue in Skokie. Jews also do not eat the types of food offered on the Burqa King menu, but Garfinkle failed to understand the intensity of the furor. “All this mishegas over a menu? I don’t eat pork either, but I have better things to do.”

Actor Ed Begley Jr. Environmentalist Wacko ~ LOL

At their home in Studio City, Ed Begley Jr. points out to wife Rachelle Carson that a curling iron is a power waster.

Actor Ed Begley Jr. Hollywood's most devoted environmentalist

STUDIO CITY – Eco-crazed actor Ed Begley Jr. and his wife just finished bickering about how much energy her hair-curling iron wastes. Now he's boiling water for soup on a sun-heated oven in the drought-tolerant backyard of their two-bedroom solar-powered home.

“Oh, he's insane!” scoffs Rachelle Carson, his annoyed better half.

The pretty, blond actress and Pilates instructor rolls her eyes again at the eccentric rumpled man of the house, clad in his “uniform” – organic cotton Of the Earth khaki shorts, white Costco T-shirt and socks.

If Begley hadn't loaned his generator-equipped stationary bike to a friend, he'd demonstrate how he both exercises and creates electricity for breakfast.

“You pedal for 15 minutes and you have enough power for the 2½ minutes it takes to toast toast,” he explains, as the manicured missus loudly groans.

Their California ranch-style home is behind a white picket fence made of recycled plastic milk jugs.

Begley has 117 solar panels on his roof since 1990, catches rainwater in a giant vat to irrigate his organic vegetable garden, often commutes by bike (he once pedaled in tux to an Academy Awards party), owns an energy-generating windmill in the desert, and sells Begley's Best biodegradable housecleaning products in between acting gigs.

When he travels, Begley prefers to drive across country – he owns a Toyota RAV4 electric car and Prius hybrid – instead of taking planes because “at 31,000 feet burning kerosene with no trees to mitigate that CO2, there's pollution from flying, folks.”

No wonder he keeps unplugging his wife's hair-curling iron in the bathroom when she leaves it heating up for 20 minutes. She, in turn, yells at her beloved and plugs it back in for another 20 minutes.

“They take two to three minutes to fully get as hot as they're going to,” Begley booms. “Do you know how much wattage they take? It's like leaving a light bulb on for a week!”
“He'll tell you the wattage for everything,” the 46-year-old Carson drolly says. “Yeah, he's fascinating at a party. He really is. A total nerd.”
“This is 80 watts!” exclaims Begley, holding a magnifying glass to read the hair curler's small print. “Let me go get the other one! You use two, right?”

There's a new countertop fashioned from recycled Coca-Cola bottles in the small kitchen with the 10-year-old Kenmore fridge, but conservationist Begley shuns more improvements. He even jury-rigged a piece of metal as a handle for their 1980s range so they can keep the appliance.

"We should throw it away,” Carson disgustedly says.
“No we shouldn't!” Begley retorts. “What will happen to this old metal, honey? Where will it go? I'm not going to have it put in a landfill.”

Besides, they have that outdoor sun oven, a catalog-ordered contraption of solar panels that heats up to 375 degrees. It's on a rolling cart Begley made from scrap wood, which comes in handy when the sun moves.

“I have to come out every hour or two to re-aim it,” Begley says. But instead of consuming gas to, say, boil water or simmer lentils, the energy is “free from the sun.”
“Better wear your sunblock,” Carson cracks, her blue eyes tearing from the glare of the oven's metallic ray-catchers.

Begley says the 117 60-watt solar panels that cost about $35,000 in 1990 provide the bulk of the home's power. His electric bill is about $600 a year. The rooftop panels hook up to 10 large batteries in the garage and an inverter transforms the sun's light to electricity for house and car.

Begley uses recycling bins for everything from discarded crossword puzzles to junk mail. Nopte the labels on the tubs.....white paper ...color paper.

Recycling tubs are scattered throughout the home, and Begley points out you aren't really recycling unless you buy recycled goods. “Exhibit A!” he announces, hoisting a 12-pack of recycled toilet paper stored in the garage.
Back in the kitchen, Carson asks her waste-not spouse if a small empty bottle with a liquid dropper from medicinal herbs goes into recycling or garbage.

“The glass part goes into recycling. The other thing you can reuse if we need an eyedropper. Leave it there. I'll clean it up.”
“Ohhh, no!” Carson protests.

Begley uses a stopwatch to time his wife in a shower, though he says he never did that before. Usually, he knocks on the door to let her know how many gallons of water she's wasting.

“He says, 'How long are you going to be in there?' I say, 'The more you ask me, the longer I'm staying.' ”

Begley has certainly raised the celebrity eco bar, at least on his tree-lined street in the San Fernando Valley. On this day, he walks out of his recycled front gate and meets former TV host Bill Nye “The Science Guy,” who lives a few doors down and is out for a walk. The two chat in another language about Nye's new solar-powered water heater.

“Got to keep up with the Begleys,” Nye says.

Wild Thing's comment.....

Recycled toilet paper??? Gag.

These lefties are all the same, NUTS! Remember Michael Moore flying around in a private plane criticizing rich people.

Oil Drilling Ban Sought for Alaskan Park

Drill ban sought for Alaskan park

Legislation has been tabled in the United States aimed at making a ban on oil drilling at a wildlife refuge in Alaska permanent.


Wildlife campaigners are hoping the new Democrat-led Congress will adopt such a move, which has been rejected on several occasions in the past.

The legislation would make about 500,000 hectares of land along the Alaskan coast a protected wilderness.

It is rich in wildlife but also has more than 10bn barrels of oil.

To many environmentalists the area represents probably the ultimate wild place in need of protection.

It has been compared to the Serengeti nature reserve in Africa because of its abundance of wildlife - polar bears, oxen, caribou and millions of migratory birds.

But it is also thought the area could supply up to one million barrels of oil a day at peak production.

US President George W Bush has said repeatedly that he believes it is possible to protect the environment while still allowing drilling to take place.

He believes the area is essential for lessening US dependence on foreign energy sources.

Wild Thing's comment......

I love animals and you all know I love bears especially. But there is also the factor of common sense. We have tons of oil here in America and because of enviro's we do not drill here like we should. I have no answers as to how it can be done, but my gut feeling would be to do what we can to get our own oil and not be at the mercy of other counties for our oil like we are now. The Dems wants us to depend on foreign oil along with some Rhino's. The Dems are jumping on this right away.

Thank you Billy of Billy O'Blog for the link.

Dem Letter to President Bush

Dem Letter to President Bush:

"We stongly encourage you to reject any plans that call for our getting our troops any deeper into Iraq"

President George W. Bush
The White House
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

The start of the new Congress brings us opportunities to work together on the critical issues confronting our country. No issue is more important than finding an end to the war in Iraq. December was the deadliest month of the war in over two years, pushing U.S. fatality figures over the 3,000 mark.

The American people demonstrated in the November elections that they do not believe your current Iraq policy will lead to success and that we need a change in direction for the sake of our troops and the Iraqi people. We understand that you are completing your post-election consultations on Iraq and are preparing to make a major address on your Iraq strategy to the American people next week.

Clearly this address presents you with another opportunity to make a long overdue course correction. Despite the fact that our troops have been pushed to the breaking point and, in many cases, have already served multiple tours in Iraq, news reports suggest that you believe the solution to the civil war in Iraq is to require additional sacrifices from our troops and are therefore prepared to proceed with a substantial U.S. troop increase.

Surging forces is a strategy that you have already tried and that has already failed. Like many current and former military leaders, we believe that trying again would be a serious mistake. They, like us, believe there is no purely military solution in Iraq. There is only a political solution. Adding more combat troops will only endanger more Americans and stretch our military to the breaking point for no strategic gain. And it would undermine our efforts to get the Iraqis to take responsibility for their own future. We are well past the point of more troops for Iraq.

In a recent appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee, General John Abizaid, our top commander for Iraq and the region, said the following when asked about whether he thought more troops would contribute to our chances for success in Iraq:

"I met with every divisional commander, General Casey, the Corps commander, General Dempsey. We all talked together. And I said, in your professional opinion, if we were to bring in more American troops now, does it add considerably to our ability to achieve success in Iraq? And they all said no. And the reason is, because we want the Iraqis to do more. It's easy for the Iraqis to rely upon to us do this work. I believe that more American forces prevent the Iraqis from doing more, from taking more responsibility for their own future. "

Rather than deploy additional forces to Iraq, we believe the way forward is to begin t he phased redeployment of our forces in the next four to six months, while shifting the principal mission of our forces there from combat to training, logistics, force protection and counter-terror. A renewed diplomatic strategy, both within the region and beyond, is also required to help the Iraqis agree to a sustainable political settlement. In short, it is time to begin to move our forces out of Iraq and make the Iraqi political leadership aware that our commitment is not open ended, that we cannot resolve their sectarian problems, and that only they can find the political resolution required to stabilize Iraq.

Our troops and the American people have already sacrificed a great deal for the future of Iraq. After nearly four years of combat, tens of thousands of U.S. casualties, and over $300 billion dollars, it is time to bring the war to a close. We, therefore, strongly encourage you to reject any plans that call for our getting our troops any deeper into Iraq. We want to do everything we can to help Iraq succeed in the future but, like many of our senior military leaders, we do not believe that adding more U.S. combat troops contributes to success.

We appreciate you taking these views into consideration.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Wild Thing's comment.....

I didn't know that Pelosi was a military strategist!

Face it Dems ( Pelosi and Reid ) , the only thing you care about here is the $300 billion that you'd rather spend on your socialist Utopia and power grabbing entitlements.

The Democrats don't give a DAMN about the casualties. None of the Leadership of your Party does. The Democrat "leadership" wants Bush to fail in Iraq, because they think that will help them win the White House in 2008. The Democrats' interests are aligned with the terrorists and insurgents.

I don't know what all is going on, but I just came home to Obama commenting outside the White House about how is is opposed to the surge. Apparently the President told him he understood his position but disagreed, and guess who gets to call the shots.

Meanwhile, why was Obama there? sheesh!

U.S. to give Abbas forces $86 Million

U.S. to give Abbas forces $86 mln in power struggle

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The Bush administration will provide $86.4 million to strengthen security forces loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, expanding U.S. involvement in Abbas's power struggle with Hamas, documents showed Friday.

Fighting between Abbas's Fatah faction and the Hamas, the ruling Islamist group, has surged since talks on forming a unity government collapsed and Abbas called for early parliamentary and presidential elections. Hamas accused Abbas of mounting a coup.

The U.S. money will be used to "assist the Palestinian Authority presidency in fulfilling PA commitments under the road map (peace plan) to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism and establish law and order in the West Bank and Gaza," a U.S. government document said
The document said Lieutenant-General Keith Dayton, the U.S. security coordinator between Israel and the Palestinians, would implement the $86.362 million program "to strengthen and reform elements of the Palestinian security sector controlled by the PA presidency."

The U.S. money will provide Abbas's presidential guard with training and non-lethal equipment, including vehicles and uniforms, people familiar with the plan said.

Israeli officials said Washington had already helped organize shipments of guns and ammunition to the presidential guard from Egypt and Jordan, and that

The money for the presidential guard was initially earmarked for U.S. aid programs in Gaza and the occupied West Bank, but those programs were "canceled or suspended after Hamas took power earlier this year," the U.S. document said.

Hamas says its own "Executive Force" has nearly 6,000 members and will also be expanded. Hamas receives funding from Iran and other Islamist allies.

Wild Thing's comment.....

Good grief, this is a good thing???? NO WAY! Abbas is a terrorist! A living breathing axis of evil!

I wished someone in the Adminstration had read this:

Terrorists associated with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party who have been firing rockets from the Gaza Strip into nearby Jewish towns are loyal to Abbas and commit their attacks in accordance with Fatah, the northern Gaza leader of Fatah's declared "military wing" told WND in an interview.

You can read the article ......

Rocket-launching terrorists loyal to Abbas

Or maybe they have but just don't care!

I am not a soldier but if I was, I would NEVER give my enemy any way possible to gain strength to help kill those on my side (in this case Israel), those that are fighting the same enemy that I am fighting. Israel has been our friend, we darn well better show consistency in being theirs. Loyalty wanes when it is a one-way street!

What good does it do to be the most powerful country in the world and we are, if we do not use that power, that strength to show total support to our friend Israel.

Bush Nominates Zalmay Khalilzad for UN Post

Zalmay Khalilzad

Bush to Nominate Khalilzad to U.N. Post

President Bush will nominate Zalmay Khalilzad to be the new U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Khalilzad is currently the U.S. ambassador to Iraq. The announcement may come as soon as tomorrow. Khalilzad's departure from Baghdad will happen as soon as he is confirmed as U.N. ambassador.

Ryan Crocker, currently the U.S. ambassador to Pakistan, will be nominated to replace Khalilzad in Baghdad. Khalilzad has been U.S. ambassador to Iraq since June 2005. He is the highest ranking Muslim in the U.S. government and one of the few officials at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad fluent in Arabic.

Khalilzad played an active role trying to push the Iraqi government toward political reconciliation. Khalilzad's efforts aliented some in the Shia-dominated Iraqi government who complained that Khalilzad was biased in favor of Iraq's Sunnis. Khalilzad is a Sunni Muslim. Before becoming U.S. ambassador to Iraq, Khalilzad served as U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan. Prior to that, he served as a Special Presidential Envoy and Ambassador at Large for the Free Iraqis.

Khalilzad has a bachelor's and a master's degree from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon, and a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.

Biden Brags He Has Lots of Experience for 2008 Bid

Sen. Biden touts experience in 2008 bid

NEW YORK - Democratic Sen. Joe Biden wants you to know he is running for president. Definitely. Unequivocally. Absolutely.

"I'm the only guy who will tell you honestly what I'm doing. The others won't tell you, but I will," Biden said, wrapping up a fundraising trip to New York before heading to New Hampshire, his ninth visit in just over a year. He's also campaigned extensively through other early voting states, spending 17 days in Iowa, nine in South Carolina, and four in Nevada.

In a potentially crowded Democratic field dominated by New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama — neither of whom has formally entered the race — a Biden candidacy seems a bit of an anachronism.

But the 64-year-old Delaware lawmaker insists there's never been a better time for him to run.

"Frankly, I think I'm more qualified than other candidates, and the issues facing the American public are all in my wheelbarrow," Biden said. "I know I want to be president, I know what I believe and my message is important."

Wild Thing's comment...

And .. what experience would that be .. something like, lying, cheating, deceiving, usurping, obstructing, and did I mention lying ..?? Biden gives me the creeps, heck most of the Democrats do.

Muslims Don't Want To Share Prayer Room

I know this video has nothing to do with a prayer room for the death cult followers. But it is so funny and I thought you might get a kick out of it.

Muslims warn of 'problems' in shared prayer room

Muslims are demanding a private room to pray at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, saying there will be problems if they have to share an existing "quiet room" with people of other religions.

"Where you have Christians and Muslims praying at the same time, it will create a problem," said Fuad Ali, a Somali leader who spoke at a meeting with airport officials, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The meeting was a followup to an incident Nov. 20 when ticket agents and other passengers noticed six Muslim imams who had attended a conference in the area praying loudly before their flight, and shouting "Allah, Allah" when their flight was called.

Officials said then they also asked to be scattered throughout the plane, rather than sitting together as they had been assigned. And some of the imams, although they did not need them, asked for seat-belt extenders.

Now Somalis, who make up a large community in Minnesota and are predominantly Muslim, are demanding changes at the airport, including a private place for them to use for their prayers.

The airport, meanwhile, has suggested they share the room already set aside for such purposes.

But the airport already provides the generic quiet area, and if it would set aside a special area designated for Muslims, it could have to accommodate any – and all – other faiths the same way, noted Airport Director Steve Wareham.

"Our request would be you try the quiet seating area," Airport Director Steve Wareham said.

That is a carpeted room furnished with chairs – but without any religious symbols, airport officials said. It has been in use for a number of years, but hasn't been obvious, so airport officials have promised to put up more signs to let people know where it is.

Wild Thing's comment......

Yeah - problems! They can't plot their hijackings with other people in the room. The demands made by Muslim's typically take them well beyond acceptable accomodations. And for a reason. . .they are determined to push the envelope until they realize their full goals/agenda.

Interesting how these Muslims have been able to travel all over the world for all these years WITHOUT prayer rooms? I guess they had not decided yet to start working on their agenda to take over other countries. But it sure is happening now.

But Saddam Has Left The Building But Saddam Ghost "Hanging" Around LOL

People seeing Saddam’s ghost in Baghdad public areas India Daily

In a most bizarre stories ever heard, some people in Baghdad are claiming that they are seeing Saddam’s ghost in Baghdad public areas.

Sources say, this may be a plot by the Baathists to keep Saddam ‘alive’ among the Sunni communities. Some claim he is seen in restaurants, markets and so on. It is possible many Saddam look-alikes are now more prominent and people are mistaking these look-alikes as possible Saddam. It is also possible that Saddam was such a threat that people just cannot believe he is dead and not coming back.

None of these possible ghost sightings are confirmed by any reliable sources or Iraqi authorities.

Saddam Hussein was buried before dawn on Sunday in his native village of Awja, near Tikrit in northern Iraq, the head of his tribe and a family source said. Ali al-Nida, head of the Albu Nasir tribe, told Reuters the burial in a family plot took place in the early morning, less than 24 hours after the former president was hanged for crimes against humanity. He gave no further details.

Hamas Whine They Are Misunderstood ~ Dems Feel Their Pain

Hamas complains of 'poor spokespeople'

According to group's website, 'PA continues to employ poor spokespersons, we need to tell world Israel is a murderer'
Yaakov Lappin Published: 01.02.07, 18:08

The Palestinian Authority is failing to get its message through to the world because of "poorly qualified or unqualified spokespersons with inadequate political and linguistic abilities," the Hamas English language website claimed in editorial Tuesday.

The editorial said Palestinians "need professional spokespersons with excellent knowledge of the world and mastery of foreign languages, especially English, to tell the world in straightforward manner that Israel is a murderer, liar and land thief and that the problem lies squarely in the Zionist theft of our land and savagery of our people ."
"There can be no peace or stability between Islam and the West, let alone between Israel and the Muslim world, as long as the Israeli occupation persists and the Palestinian people are denied their rights, including the right to have a viable and sovereign state with East Jerusalem as its capital as well the repatriation of Palestinian refugees to their original hometowns and villages in what is now Israel."

The editorial complained bitterly against a recent soccer game between a joint Israeli-Palestinian team and the Spanish national squad.

"This… American administration, which believes that the invasion, occupation and destruction of Iraq, was inspired by God, will not award or reward Abbas for being moderate (in the American lexicon 'moderate' means coming to terms with the Israeli occupation and giving up Jerusalem as well as the right of return and much of the West Bank)."

Wild Thing's comment....

Hamas your message is well known even above the sound of the many loud exposions from your suicide-bomber children and IED blasts in every Muslim country!! Well there's always Baghdad Bob, or on a more Carter.

Operation Beastmaster

Dec 29, 2006
BY Staff Sgt. Kason Fark, 2nd Battalion, 12th Cavalry Regimen

BAGHDAD - Staring down at an empty lot, Spc. Craig McBaine wondered how such a tranquil neighborhood could be the scene of so much carnage.

Nicknamed "IED Alley East," this 700-meter stretch of barren earth has been the scene of many attacks against coalition and Iraqi security forces.

On this day, the patch of land, bordered on three sides by once-beautiful three-story houses, is occupied by up-armored Humvees, Bradley Fighting Vehicles and Abrams Battle Tanks, all in support of Operation Beastmaster.

During Beastmaster, troops from the 4th Battalion, 1st Brigade, 6th Iraqi Army Division cleared three large neighborhoods in the western Baghdad suburb of Ghazaliya. The sight of much sectarian violence, Ghazaliya is the battle ground for Sunni insurgents trying to push back the overwhelming Shia population in the northern and eastern areas of Baghdad.

"Alternate Supply Route Sword," the U.S. military's name for the largest road running through southern Ghazaliya, is also the in-road from Fallujah to Baghdad proper.

Having just arrived weeks ago, Soldiers of Company D, 2nd Battalion, 12th Cavalry Regiment, attached to 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, have set upon the goal of taking over the security of Ghazaliya from the Soldiers of 1st Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Infantry Division.

"It's been pretty crazy already," McBaine said. The Florida native's patrol would later be hit multiple times by small arms fire, a rocket-propelled grenade and a roadside bomb.

Based out of Fort Bliss, Texas, 2-12 Cavalry is part of the 1st Cavalry Division's newest brigade - the 4th "Long Knife" Brigade Combat Team. While the unit may be new to El Paso, Texas, it is no stranger to combat.

2-12 Cavalry was de-activated shortly after its return from Operation Iraqi Freedom II in March 2005. The unit has also earned streamers in other conflicts such as World War II, Vietnam, and Desert Storm. The unit was the first U.S. unit in Leyte and Japan. The unit re-activated at Fort Bliss 18 months after returning from Iraq.

Participation in operations such as Beastmaster with the Iraqi Army is the key to handing Iraq back over to its people. The Iraqi soldiers involved were being observed by coalition forces to gauge their ability to perform urban warfare tasks.

Overall, Operation Beastmaster was a huge success. In the course of three days of house to house searches, the Iraqi Army troops uncovered seven weapons caches, numerous roadside bomb-making materials and captured a high-value target.

Pelosi and Hillary Two of a Kind

A tale of 2 women

Pittsburgh Tribune Review...for complete article

By the close of business on Election Day 2006, the country decided it was ready for a female speaker of the House. Recent polls have shown a whopping 92 percent of Americans are ready to vote for a qualified female candidate for president.

But is the country ready for a female House speaker and a female president at the same time?

On Jan. 4, Capitol Hill, for all intents and purposes, becomes Nancy Pelosi's. Starting this week, she will be the face of the Democratic Party.

Wild Thing's comment......

Willl they get along, who the heck cares. haha I can't stand either one of them. And they both are my enemy and America's enemy. What I can imagine is that they will not be warm and friendly to each other. I don't think either one of them has a fan club on the Hill, only the idiots on the left that voted for them. YUK!

I love our country and I am proud to be an American. It breaks my heart to see it attacked, not only by the terrorists but also by the left. People like Pelosi and Hillary and the others from the left that have an agenda to bring us down to being weak, socialist etc. and will cater to our enemy in so many ways is very concerning to me.

I will never give up, and never stop fighting back in my own way.

Pelosi and Hillary are both like a rattlesanke staring at a rabbit. Like the single-minded attention of a rattlesanke on its prey, Hillary's only goal is getting elected to office as the first woman President and implementing her leftist agenda.

They will both will lie, twist, contort, change position, promise, weedle and cojole to achieve their objectives

Saddam's Daughter Raghad gives Her Rah-gards To Protests

Raghad Saddam Hussein stopped in at the demonstration staged by the Professional Associations — a body that groups unions for doctors, engineers and lawyers — in its office parking lot in west Amman.
"God bless you, and I thank you for honoring Saddam, the martyr," two witnesses recalled Raghad Saddam Hussein as telling the protesters, who included a junior Cabinet minister, on her arrival. She left a minute later.

Raghad, who supervised her father's legal team, has lived in Jordan since shortly after Saddam's overthrow in April 2003. The Jordanian authorities have told her not to get involved in political activities.

CNN's Christiane Amanpour reacts to news of Saddam's death

Wild Thing's comment......

Martyr Shmartyr! I can't help it.....Raghad/Raghead is nothing more then a female Saddam. It was 10 years ago that daddy killed her husband and her sister's husband within 72 hours of guaranteeing their safety in returning to Iraq.
Both husbands were also cousins of Saddam and had fled into exile in Jordan. They hung around Jordan for 6 months, increasingly depressed because no one in the Western or arabic world trusted them. Finally they took Saddam's word that all was forgiven and they could return to Baghdad. Unbelieveably to all observers, they were dumb enough to go back home, and by most accounts it was Uday that was handed the plum assignment of killing them.

Raghad is still roaming free even though she is wanted for funneling money to terrorists. She's under the protection of the Jordanian government.

Heather Martin Sings A Song For Her Brother Serving In Iraq

Heather Martin is 6 years old and sings a song that her mother wrote for her brother Shaun who is serving in Iraq. The song is written from Heather's point of view.

This little girl is absolutely adorable and you can tell she is singing it straight from her heart. God bless little Heather, her family and a special prayer for her brother Shaun and keep him safe.


You were almost sixteen when I came into the world.
Mom and Dad had you first then 3 more boys I'm the baby girl.
I sure have a lot to look up to in you, you're really smart and funny with a big heart too.
After one year of college you knew what you had to do.
It's just like you wanting to help with the war.
So you joined the army when I was only 4.
This time of year we talk of big plans but you're over seas in some distant land.
You can't be here for Christmas, I don't understand.

When are you coming home, Shaun?
When are you coming home?!
We lit up the house like we always do but it doesn't seem bright 'cause we can't have you.
In my prayers I ask God to keep you safe.
And I'm trying to be really brave.
Tell me that the fighting's through.
Come home!
I really miss you.

It's hard to enjoy the holidays without you.
But we're so proud of you and all the red white and blue.
Remember that Jesus is your best friend,
And someday our families will be together again.
Wow! You know we'll have a great big party then.


I want to show you how tall I've grown and introduce you to my new friends at school.
Maybe we could go and get some ice cream together but I really don't care what we do.


This is a news story about Heather with photos of her brother as well.

* Billy O'Blog Thank you so much Billy for sending this to me. It is so touching, and so very special.
