Another Now I Have Heard Everything

Memorial Placed For Student Who Blew Self Up

NORMAN, Okla. -- The University of Oklahoma has put up a memorial to a student who died when a homemade bomb exploded near the OU football stadium.

A stone with the name of Joel Hinrichs III was placed outside the OU student union by the student affairs division.

Hinrichs died Oct. 1, 2005, when the bomb he built detonated as he sat on a campus bench near Memorial Stadium while a football game was under way. University officials ruled the death an accidental suicide.

Hinrichs' father -- Joel Hinrichs Jr. -- said the university offered to have the stone placed.

Families normally pay about $150 for the memorials, and Hinrichs said he's offered to pay, but OU hasn't sent him a bill.

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

Apparently, the University of Oklahoma is putting up a memorial to a fool who blew himself up when a homemade bomb he assembled went off while he held it as he attended a football game in the University stadium. Fortunately, he only killed himself and not anyone around him.

To this kid we should be saying good riddance and he should be quickly forgotten. But here is the U of O mourning this idiot’s death as if he were some kind of hero. In fact, the only good thing he did was kill himself before he planted the bomb closer to other football fans in the stadium in which he died. But, that was a mere accident, NOT a planned, heroic deed.

There should be no memorial for this wannabe murderer, terrorist.

Yet here we have the U of O doing so anyway. Where are the morals of the administration of the U of O to create this memorial? Would the U of O support a memorial to Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh? Why not? After all, they succeeded quite handily in their last efforts. And imagine the message the U of O is sending to people with this ignorant memorializing of this failed killer. Worse yet. Where is the protest by Oklahomans for this idiotic act by the U of O?

This whole story is just a shameful series of circumstances and the University of Oklahoma should be ashamed of itself.

Airport Adds Foot Basins For Muslim Cabbies

Police worry about Kansas City 'catering' to Islamic rituals

The Kansas City International Airport has added several foot-washing basins in restrooms to accommodate a growing number of Muslim taxicab drivers who requested the facilities to prepare for daily Islamic prayer.

The move concerns airport police who worry about Middle Eastern men loitering inside the building. After 9/11, the airport beefed up its police force to help prevent terrorist attacks.

"Why are we constructing places of worship for them inside our airports?" said an airport official who requested anonymity. "Why are we catering to their rituals? We don't do it for any other religion."

Other major airports also are dealing with increased demands from Muslim cabdrivers.

For instance, cabbies at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport recently caused a stir when they refused to carry passengers possessing alcoholic beverages or accompanied by seeing-eye dogs. Alcohol is forbidden in Islam, and dogs are considered unclean.

There are approximately 250 taxicab drivers operating at KCI Airport in Missouri, one of the largest airports in the U.S., linking some 10 million passengers between mid-America and other U.S. cities. Approximately 70 percent of the drivers are of Middle Eastern heritage and practice the Islamic faith, sources say.

KCI Airport Police are responsible for the cab drivers, including the holding areas of the building. The KCI Aviation Department, which oversees the police, recently expanded the taxicab facility restroom area to include the construction of four individual foot-washing benches.

The cost of the project is not immediately known. A spokeswoman for the engineering department said she could not break out the figures.

KCI Airport Police Capt. Jim Harmon declined comment, explaining, "This is a touchy subject."

In a cleansing ritual known as ablution, Muslims are required to wash their feet before praying to Allah five times a day. They often complain that public restroom sinks do not accommodate their needs. Floor-level basins make it easier for them to perform their foot-washing ritual.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has pressed government agencies and businesses to install the foot basins in restrooms.

The controversial Muslim lobby group advises employers to allow Muslim workers time to perform both the washing ritual and prayer, which "is usually about 15 minutes," according to a pamphlet CAIR publishes called, "An Employer's Guide to Islamic Religious Practices."

The Islamic purification ritual, known in Arabic as "wudu," involves a 10-step process, which includes:

1. Praising Allah while washing both hands up to the wrist three times, making sure that the water reaches between fingers and under rings.

2. Rinsing out the mouth thoroughly three times, using the right hand (the one not used for cleaning private parts) to bring the water to the mouth.

3. Snorting water into the nostrils from the right hand, three times, to cleanse them of demons that Muslims believe reside there, clearing the passages of any mucous using the left hand.

4. Washing off the tip of the nose with the left hand.

5. Washing the entire face three times from right ear to left ear.

6. Continuing to wash from forehead to throat.

7. Washing the right arm and then the left arm, three times, from the wrist up to the elbow, removing watches.

8. Moving wetted palms over the head from the top of the forehead to the back of the head.

9. Passing the wetted tips of the fingers into the grooves and holes of both ears, and also passing the wetted thumbs behind the ears and ear lobes.

10. Finally, washing both feet to the ankles starting with the right foot, including between the toes, then reciting: "Ash-hadu an la ilaha illal lahu wa ashhadu anna Muammadan 'abduhu wa rasuluh" – meaning there is no god but Allah and he has no partners, and Muhammad is his servant and messenger.

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

Muslim cabbies = ready made car bombers.
And when it happens airport folks will cry "Nobody ever thought of it as a public hazard." That we are so accomodating only predicts our peril ahead. I am just stunned that so many Americans, especially those in positions of leadership and influence, are so eager to surrender to the abject horror that is islam.

Once again, blame Bill Clinton for all this. He rewarded Somalia for Black Hawk Down by bringing 90,000 of those savages into America scot free, with most of them becoming cab driving jihadists. Tell your friends this next time they say “I wish Clinton were still President”.

Send Them A White Feather For Cowardice

From a Vietnam Veteran at Michelle Malkin's blog:

"The White Feather has been a symbol for cowardice. I suggest that white feathers be sent to the leaders of the Senate and House for the cowardly vote that abandons our soldiers around the world. I was in Vietnam the day that the 101st took "Hamburger Hill" -- the headline in the Stars and Stripes was Teddy Kennedy's statement to the effect that it was all such a waste. I am sure it raised the spirits of the folks on top of the hill -- I know it gave my morale a boost. Surely these leaders of our country will head out on a USO tour to encourage the troops further.

As far as I am concerned this is a Congress of Quislings."

Wild Thing's comment......

On April 9th, I posted about the film The Four Feathers, about cowardice. It is an excellent movie one that I wish everyone could see, not only a classic but one that will stay with a person always.

I think this is a marvelous idea to send a white feather in the mail to Reid, Pelosi, Murtha, Hagel, etc.

There is a store called Michaels ( a craft store) that would have white feathers probably or also a person can order them here, either individually or in bulk.

.....Thank you Mark for the information about the post at Michelle's blog.

Movie About The 101st Airborne Division

Trailer for movie. I Am an American Soldier premieres at NYC Tribeca Film Festival on April 26th more info on the website: This raw, uncompromising investigation into the war in Iraq follows an elite unit of the 101st Airborne Division through fourteen months at home and at war. It shows the full cycle of a combat tour and documents the profound changes that take place in the lives of the soldiers. Before they leave Fort Campbell, hundreds of men shout “Hoo-ah” in response to their brigade commander's dramatic war speech in which he instructs them to "look like a killer" at all times in Iraq. The film begins by demonstrating the lethal force of America’s best-trained and most aggressive soldiers. After tearful farewells with their loved ones, they leave for Iraq determined to carry out America's mission in the war and succeed on the battlefields of Baghdad, Samarra and other places. But that is not how the rest of the story unfolds.

The site where the video is from.

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

This is a trailer, as far as the complete movie it is not out yet so I cannot say it is done in an honest way or that it might have a slant to it against our military. I wish I knew more about it then just the trailor and write up at the site.

Obstructionist Democrats by Duncan Hunter

Obstructionist Democrats
Human Events
by Rep. Duncan Hunter
Posted: 04/24/2007

While they wrangle over the terms of their surrender legislation, the Democrat leadership has sent the worst of messages to the world. Speaker Pelosi struck the first wedge into what should be a united American foreign policy on Iraq by introducing a defense bill, which would effectively move the position of Commander in Chief to the U.S. Congress. Along with timetables for withdrawal from Iraq, the Pelosi bill, on page 72, mandates a 15 day waiting period before an American unit can be moved into the Iraq war theater. This incredibly obstructive provision would have profound negative effects on our forces’ abilities to fight. For example, should US hostages be taken and a Delta Force team moved from outside the theater to attempt a rescue, Pelosi’s provision would require a fifteen-day waiting period and a report to Congress before the rescue could be attempted. Should a Zarqawi level target be located and U.S. fighter aircraft be deployed from outside Iraq, the same fifteen days would elapse before a strike could be executed. The very nature of the “notice and wait” requirement illustrates how unfamiliar Democrats are with the war against terrorists. This is a new era involving rapid movement of specialized personnel and equipment across theater boundaries. “Notice and wait for two weeks” reflects an ultimate misunderstanding of U.S. military operations.

Democrats, in defending the Pelosi requirement, state that their concern is readiness of our military forces and that the President’s certification of ”full mission capability” and Congress’ fifteen day review of said certification is simply assertion of normal congressional oversight responsibilities. This position should be rejected for several reasons. First, such micro management can never work in a congress, which takes weeks to tee up a hearing. Second, readiness levels are a complicated thing, often unreflective of real military capability. For example, if an infantry company does not have its flu shots, it will be rated as “unready.” In the world of speaker Pelosi, this may justify non-deployment, but to a soldier engaged in combat and awaiting reinforcements, the message that the speaker is worried that the re-enforcements will catch the flu and will have to “stay home from school” until they get their shots is hardly inspiring. All this reflects the wisdom of the Constitution’s reserving Commander in Chief responsibilities for the single leader elected by the entire nation. Even the Washington Post noted the obvious intrusion of the Pelosi bill on the President’s powers.

Senate leader Reid quickly followed Speaker Pelosi with his own mis-guided “missile,” in announcing that the U.S. had “lost” the war in Iraq. Just as Speaker Pelosi had surprised the Israelis by becoming their ambassador to Syria without portfolio, Senator Reid’s comments must have been a surprise to some. Consider, for example what effect they might have on an Al-Qaeda leader in Anbar Province. As he sits in his safe house outside Fallujah, the bad news has been coming in. His assassinations of Sunni Tribal leaders have turned the region against him. Sunnis are joining the Iraqi Army in Anbar Province in unprecedented numbers. The Sunni led national police force is working with the Shiite led Army and the U.S. Marine Corps to push back against Al-Qaeda. The terrorist leader is interrupted from his “bad news” briefings by ecstatic aides. “Senator Reid has surrendered,” they shriek. “He says the U.S. has lost the war.” The Al-Qaeda leader asks the aides if they are joking, and, assured they are not, turns to the task of redoubling his efforts. This statement can only have the effect of encouraging the enemy in Iraq.

Beyond its damaging effect, Senator Reid’s statement also reflects total misunderstanding of the situation in Iraq. Occupations of foreign nations have always been difficult. They wear on two parties: the occupier and the occupied. The bunch of books that have been written on the U.S. operation in Iraq, all critical, have one thing in common: a long laundry lists of U.S. “mistakes”

Is the implication that a “smooth road” to occupation existed? In reality, such a smooth road is never attainable given circumstances like Iraq. For those who recommended that Saddam Hussein’s army be kept intact a brief chuckle should be reserved. This army contained 11,000 (yes, eleven thousand) Sunni generals. An Army thus comprised and charged with stabilizing and defending a predominately Shiite nation would only have created a mess. For those who recommended that the U.S. force be vastly increased early in the occupation, two points come to mind. First, where were you when Commander in Chief Bill Clinton reduced his Army to ten divisions (from fourteen divisions in 1992)? Second, how does an increased American force mesh with a goal of liberal senators to “put an Iraqi face” on the security apparatus?

Today we are in the second phase of the American blueprint for expanding freedom. A government, elected by its people, has been stood up. It is clumsy as most new governments are, but it is generally representative of the political will of the Iraqi people. The U.S. military is now in the process of standing up an Iraqi military capable of protecting the government. The Iraqi Army consists of 129 battalions. It is critical that the force be battle-hardened in an expeditious fashion. Military forces gain competence most rapidly through military operations. Each Iraqi battalion that has not undertaken extensive operations should be deployed for three to four months in a contentious zone of the Iraq battle space. They should be assigned a mission which will allow the command to exercise logistics and its chain of command and to demonstrate its combat effectiveness. These operations will impart to the Iraqi forces the quality most important to a successful turnover of security…military reliability. The Iraqi government and the U.S. military should ensure that trainers and support forces are available for the newly deployed battalions.

Once reliability is established in the Iraqi military, they will be capable of rotating into the battlefield throughout Iraq, displacing U.S. combat forces, which can be returned to the United States or further assigned to Central Command. U.S. success in Iraq will ultimately be measured like a cancer operation. If a dictator more lethal to U.S. interests than Saddam Hussein assumes power over the next decade, the mission will be considered a failure. If the new nation retains a modicum of freedom and a benign relationship with the U.S., the operation will amount to an unprecedented success in the most difficult region of the new era.

"Do not test my will" ~ Bush Tells Dems About Iraq

Bush to Democrats: do not 'test my will' on Iraq

CAMP DAVID, United States (AFP) - Despite growing criticism of US policy in Iraq, President George W. Bush warned Democrats Friday not to "test my will" after he vetoes a bill withdrawing US troops from Iraq.

Bush invited Democrats and leaders of his Republican Party to discuss a way out of their standoff soon after he strikes down the bill, approved by Congress this week, which ties 124 billion dollars in war funds to a troop withdrawal that would start on October 1.

But he pledged to strike down any subsequent attempt by the Democratic-led Congress to set a deadline for a pullout.

"If the Congress wants to test my will as to whether or not I'll accept the timetable for withdrawal, I won't accept one," he told a joint news conference at his retreat in Camp David, Maryland, with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
"So if they want to try again that which I have said was unacceptable, then of course I'll veto it," Bush said.
"But I hope it doesn't come to that. I believe we can work a way forward. And I think we can come to our senses and make sure that we get the money to the troops in a timely fashion," he said.

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

I will never forget the many attacks from the followers of Islam during the Clinton regime. How I felt not only afraid for our country but also the feeling of a weakness setting in to the strongest, most powerful country in the world. A President that could not even salute our service men and know how to do it properly. NO that would have taken an effort and respect on his part to honor our service men and women. In fact he loathed our military and still does.

Many of our politicians have said the war should end, bring them home, we need to have talks with the insurgents ( Reid has said this just this last week) and we need to use diplomacy with the insurgents and not kill them or fight them any longer.

WTF, what kind of brain would even have that thought come into their gray matter. Talk to the insurgents????? I mean it this just makes my head want to explode. TALK to them??

These are people that live in a backwards world, treat sheep and goats and cattle like long lost girlfriends if you get what I mean. Think having a child of their own is their donation to the next suicide bomber and think nothing of cutting the head off of anyone of us including their own family members if they get ticked off at their behavior.

Sure that will do the trick Reid and Pelosi and the rest of you lefties. Schedule a sit down with these subhumans and see how far you get. That IS of course if you can find them without them killing you first.

I am no fan of some of the things Bush has done and wants to do such as the freaking illegals. But by God he does want to let the troops do what they do best and he does respect our military unlike those traitors in our Houses on the Hill.

Appeal For Courage

Appeal For Courage

This site is an Appeal For Redress in support of our mission in Iraq.

An Appeal For Redress is an authorized means for active duty military to submit a grievance to Congress. It can be signed by Active Duty, Reserve, or National Guard military personnel.

It is authorized by DoD Directive 1325.6 and DoD Directive 7050.6 (pdf).

The wording of the Appeal is:

As an American currently serving my nation in uniform, I respectfully urge my political leaders in Congress to fully support our mission in Iraq and halt any calls for retreat. I also respectfully urge my political leaders to actively oppose media efforts which embolden my enemy while demoralizing American support at home. The War in Iraq is a necessary and just effort to bring freedom to the Middle East and protect America from further attack.
If you are active duty, reservist or national guard, please Sign this Appeal.

This Appeal will be delivered to members of Congress.
We are currently working with members of Congress to make a presentation.

Most service members fully support the war in Iraq and feel calls to retreat by Congress and emphasis by some in the media on negative aspects while ignoring positive ones acts to motivate our enemy while demoralizing our support at home, directly increasing the threat we face and resulting in greater American casualties.

Questions and answers:

1. Can I get in trouble from my command for signing this?

No. Although as active military we are limited in what we can say, this appeal is in support of our mission and our chain of command. Also, any military member can sign an appeal as authorized by DoD Directive 7050.6.

2. I'm a vet/retired, how can I help?

Please see the support page for methods to help. If you have a specific idea or skill you think could help, please email us at
You can also sign this petition.

3. What is the purpose of the appeal?

The primary purpose is to offer military members a chance to submit to Congress our desire for Victory in Iraq, and halt calls for retreat. It is also intended to express the damage done to our efforts by those calls for retreat.

4. What will be done with the Appeal?

It will be delivered to Congress, we are currently working to contact a member of Congress or the Senate to accept the Appeal.

Appeal For Courage Demographics

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

Thank you so much for serving our country. The numbers have climbed over the last 48 hours for the Appeal For Courage. The Air Force and Navy are almost at a tie for signatures. Please pass this on to all active duty and reserves. More signatures are needed. All Military can sign. They need to use their home computer, not a mil address, and sign when they are not on duty hours. Thanks to all at Appeal For Courage for their hard work on this.

Democratic Candidates Sucking Up TV Time With Debate

Democratic presidential candidates Mike Gravel, Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. Chris Dodd, John Edwards, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Sen. Joe Biden, Bill Richardson and Sen. Hillary Clinton gather on stage prior to the first presidential debate.

ORANGEBURG, S.C., April 26 – The eight Democratic presidential candidates used their first joint appearance Thursday to assail President Bush for threatening to veto legislation that would set a deadline for bringing troops out of Iraq, even as they sought to highlight differences among them on the depth of their opposition to the war and what they would do to end it.

For 90 mostly low-keyed minutes, the Democratic candidates offered a somewhat united front in denouncing Mr. Bush for the way he handled the war and saying that they should work to assemble the votes to try to override Mr. Bush’s expected veto. The debate came on the same day that four of the candidates on stage – all sitting Senators – had rushed back from Washington after voting in favor of the bill.

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

Democrat Party presidential hopefuls gathered together and demonstrate that they are not afraid to give the finger to all Americans.

At one point, Mike Gravel, a former Senator from Alaska, said he wanted Congress to pass a law “making it a felony” for the administration to stay in Iraq. This man is totally a sicko. He was also around to do his ugly deeds during the Vietnam war and he was against the troops then too. He is a walking talking felony all on his own.

WWII Bomber Crew Awarded Distinguished Flying Cross

Former Staff Sgt. Robert D. Speed salutes Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. T. Michael Moseley after receiving the Distinguished Flying Cross for his role in the Ploesti, Italy, mission 63 years ago. Mr. Speed was a member of a B-24 Liberator Bomber crew who encountered heavy anti-aircraft fire July 15, 1944, and as a result lost one engine.

The crew still managed to complete their mission of bombing oil refineries in Romania, but was shot down the next day while participating in a raid over Austria; they were taken prisoner of war. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Cohen A. Young)

WWII bomber crew members awarded Distinguished Flying Cross

4/26/2007 - WASHINGTON (AFNEWS) -- It was a warm summer morning when the crew of the Flak Man, a B-24 Liberator, joined other bombers and their escort fighters on a daring mission. They flew from Pantanella, Italy, and played a key role in the bombing of oil refineries 700 miles away near Ploesti, Romania. The location was of strategic importance -- Nazi Germany got 60 percent of their petroleum from the plants there.

En route, there was heavy resistance from the Luftwaffe in the air and from anti-aircraft fire on the ground. But despite heavy damage to the Flak Man, the crew was able to successfully deliver their munitions and returned to Italy, their mission complete and instrumental to halting the Nazi war machine.

The next morning, the crew was sent out again, but the Flak Man was too damaged to fly. The crew instead went out in the Black Fox, a B-24 so similar to their beloved Flak Man, they hardly noticed the difference. On the way to their target in Austria, the Black Fox was shot down, killing one of the crew, Tech. Sgt. William Magill. The others were held as prisoners until the end of the war.

In a ceremony on Capitol Hill April 24, the crew of the Flak Man was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for their role in the Ploesti mission 63 years ago. The three living members of the original crew were on hand for the event, while representatives for the others accepted their medals.

"This is the legacy of today's Air Force and a sign of what young Americans are all about," General Moseley said. "They walked in the footsteps of Airmen before them just as they paved the way for us. Today's Airmen stand on the shoulders of giants and it's my honor to present these American heroes with the Distinguished Flying Cross."

Humbled, yet proud, Mr. McNally also spoke to the crowd.

"Most Air Force members don't care if they ever get a medal or not," he said. "But should the Air Force see fit to honor me, I will not disdain it. I will cherish it."

Democrat Leaders and Protesters Turn Congress Into Thug World

Chaos erupted Wednesday outside a House briefing with Army Gen. David Petraeus, the U.S. military commander on the ground in Iraq.

Protestors thronged the halls of the Rayburn House Office Building outside the committee room where Petraeus is briefing members of Congress. The assembled protestors, which included members of Code Pink, shouted for members to bring U.S. troops home from Iraq as the lawmakers entered the room.

Then, Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, the ranking Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, called on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to resign after suggesting the war in Iraq “is lost.”

"It must come as a shock to Al Qaeda leaders to have an aide come into their safe house and tell them that Senator Reid has declared that, in fact, they are winning and the war is lost," Hunter said. "I think it's highly irresponsible for the leader of the U.S. Senate to have said that and, just speaking for myself as the ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee, I think that the leader of the Senate should step down from that position."

That prompted the protestors to shout him down and pandemonium ensued before Capitol Police officers cleared the hallway for reporters, members and aides.

Both parties have scheduled on-camera briefings following the meeting to share their impressions of what Petraeus has to say.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) scheduled a briefing for Democrats on Wednesday afternoon, a day after ABC reported that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) would not attend the meeting.

Gen. David Petraeus, the U.S. commander in Iraq, said the American military campaign in Iraq is "making progress," but admitted there have been setbacks amid a highly complex political environment among the various factions within the Iraqi government.

Petraeus also denied that he has come under pressure from President Bush or other political leaders to paint a false or skewed picture of the U.S. military campaign in Iraq.

"I am not being pressured by the president to say anything," Petraeus told reporters after 3 hours of back-to-back briefings of House and Senate members on the situation in Iraq. "I am not going to be pressured by political leaders of either party."

Petraeus, who was confirmed by the Senate in late January to take over command of U.S. forces in Iraq, also declined to be dragged into the controversy over the $124 billion Iraq funding bill being debated by Congress this week. The legislation includes a "goal" of having most American forces out of Iraq by March 31, 2008. Bush has threatened to veto the legislation, although Democratic congressional leaders have refused to back down in the face of Bush's position, saying the majority of the American public is on their side in seeking an end to the war.

"I am not going to get in the middle of discussion about various legislative proposals," Petraeus said.

Petraeus said he "tried to give an accurate assessment of the situation in Iraq" to lawmakers. He reported that sectarian murders were down significantly inside Baghdad itself, while adding that the security situation in Anbar province, the heart of the Sunni insurgency, is also improving.

He rattled off a list of insurgent "networks" that have been rounded up, including some responsible for IED attacks and car bombs.

Petraeus added that the U.S. military commanders "have learned a great deal more about Iranian involvement, very nefarious involvement" inside Iraq, including funding and training for insurgent forces.

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

Reid, D-Nev., dismissed Cheney's comments. "I'm not going to get into a name-calling match with the administration's chief attack dog," he told reporters.

He calls Cheney the "chief attack dog" in a statement saying he isn't going to get in a name calling match. Real substantive debate there Harry.

There is a reason Al Qaeda cheered when the dems won in November. But not because Al Qaeda liked them better, it knows if the democRats are able to stay in power and if they get the White House back, the terrorists will be able to attack us again and the rat’s won’t do anything about it. The liberals are so dumb to believe when the terrosts attack, they will ask who is a democrat, and who is a Repuplican

Take Down:The 3rd Infantry Division's Twenty-One Day Assault on Baghdad

This is a new book coming out, the book covers the 3rd ID's part in OIF:

Take Down: The 3rd Infantry Division's Twenty-One Day Assault on Baghdad by Jim Lacey (Annapolis: Naval Institute Press, 2007)
War Chronicle

Here's a quote from the Introduction...

It was a few thousand soldiers like Sergeant Johnson at the tip of the spear that made the 3rd ID the most awesome weapon of war America has ever placed on the battlefield. They were men who proved absolutely ruthless in fight, but a moment later would start helping enemy wounded, even at great personal risk.

This story from Sergeant Johnson's experience around As Samawah gives insight into the character of the men who fight America's wars. In his own words:

We were in an overwatch position after the battle of As Samawah. I was watching through the thermals and I see this Iraqi attempting to sneak up on us in the dark. He gets about seventy-five meters away when all of a sudden this bull comes out of nowhere and demolishes the guy. Really lays him out and thrashes him. The whole platoon is watching and is in absolute hysterics.

Then somehow the guy manages to stab the bull and it bellows and runs away. Using his rifle as a crutch he then starts back towards my vehicle! He then falls down and begins to crawl towards us.

When he is about thirty-five meters away he aims the rifle at us so we killed him with the coax. His rifle was a really nice .303 British so I kept it for a while. Later in the war I was shooting RPG guys from two hundred plus meters away. When that .303 hit them they stayed down for good.

Anyway later that night the bull came back and stomped on this guy for hours. He would gore him, throw him up in the air, and then stomp on him some more. The next day the guy was about three inches thick! We later protected the bull the whole time he was there. We conducted first aid for his wounds and gave him all the water and vegetables we could find. We also protected him from other Iraqis and other soldiers.

This was the 3rd ID's war, and this is their story....Tens of thousands of Iraqis fought with fanatical, even suicidal, intensity. They were met by dedicated, hard-fighting American soldiers. Sergeant Johnson's story is typical of the hundreds of engagements the 3rd ID fought before it finally stormed into Baghdad.

It is a story of twenty-one days of brutal fighting, a story that until now has remained largely untold. Mostly it is the story of American soldiers who killed in order to do what America asked them to do, but as one officer stated, "My men could not wait to stop killing and start helping people."

It is a special breed of man that can fight America's wars one day and turn to repairing schoolhouses the next.

Reagan ~ Reid ~ Cheney On War and Appeasement

Ronald Reagan on Appeasement

Harry Reid has said he will not believe David Petraeus if Petraeus reports progress in Iraq as he’s expected to do. In other words, in addition to his declaration of defeat last week, Reid has now in essence called General Petraeus a liar. Let us not forget that this is the same senator who nearly clucked with joy over the prospect of gaining additional Senate seats because the situation in Iraq would be less than satisfactory when the next election season rolls around.

Here is Reid saying he will not believe Petraeus.


Cheney Blasts Reid Over Iraq Comments......Video of Cheney....

Vice President Dick Cheney strongly criticized Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Tuesday over comments Senator Reid has made about the Iraq war in recent days. Good for Cheney. Hit the punk in the mouth.

Rep. Duncan Hunter Takes Reid To Task

Rep. Duncan Hunter takes Reid to task.

While they wrangle over the terms of their surrender legislation, the Democrat leadership has sent the worst of messages to the world. Speaker Pelosi struck the first wedge into what should be a united American foreign policy on Iraq by introducing a defense bill, which would effectively move the position of Commander in Chief to the U.S. Congress. Along with timetables for withdrawal from Iraq, the Pelosi bill, on page 72, mandates a 15 day waiting period before an American unit can be moved into the Iraq war theater. This incredibly obstructive provision would have profound negative effects on our forces’ abilities to fight. For example, should US hostages be taken and a Delta Force team moved from outside the theater to attempt a rescue, Pelosi’s provision would require a fifteen-day waiting period and a report to Congress before the rescue could be attempted. Should a Zarqawi level target be located and U.S. fighter aircraft be deployed from outside Iraq, the same fifteen days would elapse before a strike could be executed. The very nature of the “notice and wait” requirement illustrates how unfamiliar Democrats are with the war against terrorists. This is a new era involving rapid movement of specialized personnel and equipment across theater boundaries. “Notice and wait for two weeks” reflects an ultimate misunderstanding of U.S. military operations.

Democrats, in defending the Pelosi requirement, state that their concern is readiness of our military forces and that the President’s certification of ”full mission capability” and Congress’ fifteen day review of said certification is simply assertion of normal congressional oversight responsibilities.

This position should be rejected for several reasons. First, such micro management can never work in a congress, which takes weeks to tee up a hearing.

Second, readiness levels are a complicated thing, often unreflective of real military capability.

For example, if an infantry company does not have its flu shots, it will be rated as “unready.” In the world of speaker Pelosi, this may justify non-deployment, but to a soldier engaged in combat and awaiting reinforcements, the message that the speaker is worried that the re-enforcements will catch the flu and will have to “stay home from school” until they get their shots is hardly inspiring.

All this reflects the wisdom of the Constitution’s reserving Commander in Chief responsibilities for the single leader elected by the entire nation. Even the Washington Post noted the obvious intrusion of the Pelosi bill on the President’s powers.

Senate leader Reid quickly followed Speaker Pelosi with his own mis-guided “missile,” in announcing that the U.S. had “lost” the war in Iraq. Just as Speaker Pelosi had surprised the Israelis by becoming their ambassador to Syria without portfolio, Senator Reid’s comments must have been a surprise to some.

Consider, for example what effect they might have on an Al-Qaeda leader in Anbar Province. As he sits in his safe house outside Fallujah, the bad news has been coming in. His assassinations of Sunni Tribal leaders have turned the region against him. Sunnis are joining the Iraqi Army in Anbar Province in unprecedented numbers.

The Sunni led national police force is working with the Shiite led Army and the U.S. Marine Corps to push back against Al-Qaeda. The terrorist leader is interrupted from his “bad news” briefings by ecstatic aides. “Senator Reid has surrendered,” they shriek. “He says the U.S. has lost the war.” The Al-Qaeda leader asks the aides if they are joking, and, assured they are not, turns to the task of redoubling his efforts. This statement can only have the effect of encouraging the enemy in Iraq.

Happy Independence Day, Israel As You Turn 59!

Scheduling the memorial day right before the independence day is supposed to remind people of the price paid for independence and of what was achieved with the soldiers' sacrifice. This transition shows the importance of this day among Israelis, among whom many, if not most, have served in the armed forces or have a connection with people who were killed during their military service.

Days before the celebration, Israeli flags begin to wave from almost every house and car. On the eve of Israel Independence Day, there are parties, singing and dancing on the streets, and fireworks. On Independence Day, everyone packs their picnic baskets with charcoal, lots of meat, Israeli salad, and bamba. Then they head out in search of the perfect picnic spot. The whole country is dotted with families outdoors enjoying "The Land."

Acting President Dalia Itzik, whose speech opened the ceremony, referenced the connection between Independence Day and Memorial Day, saying "our grief encompasses our joy.

"Dear citizens, we live in a long war whose end we cannot see. Alongside our peace treaties with Jordan and Egypt, we hear from near and far, constant sounds of war." Addressing the source of such incitement, she asked Iran and Syria to "leave off your wickedness, for Israel lives and lets live."

"Residents of Iran, Syria and the Palestinian Authority, has there not been enough blood spilled, yours and ours? Replace your Katyushas and Qassams with computers and education, and finally, be rewarded with peace and quiet," she said.

Defense Minister Amir Peretz invited families of kidnapped Israeli soldiers to the ceremony at Mount Herzl.

Among those who attended were the families of the three soldiers kidnapped by Hizbullah in 2000, the families of Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev kidnapped by Hizbullah in 2006, and the family of Zachary Baumel, captured in battle in 1982.

Israel of 2007 is a very different country from Israel in 1948. The population has grown almost by almost nine times and stands at almost seven million people. Israel now has five cities with over 200,000 residents each, a far cry from 1948, when Tel Aviv was the only city with over 100,000 residents.

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

Since 1948, Israel has defended itself against the hostility of its neighbors and the enmity of many who wished the State would disappear. And not only did Israel survive -- it thrived. I pray they never ever lose their inheritance again.

But of course the enemy cannot let them celebrate in peace, no way.

Dozens of Celebrating Jews Threatened by Israeli Arab Mob

( An Arab mob of several thousand - including young men on horseback and others waving PLO flags - surrounded and threatened about 150 Jews from Haifa who went to a public forest to celebrate Israeli Independence Day. A Jewish young man was lightly injured in the ensuing clash.

On Tuesday afternoon, shortly after the group of Haifa families made their way to the Megiddo Forest, in the north of the country, a group of Arab youths on horseback accosted the Jewish celebrants, jeered and threatened them. As the young Arab men continued their menacing behavior, they called more Arab youths to join them. Some of the new arrivals were waving flags of the PLO terrorist organization.

"Within a short time, there were hundreds of Arabs surrounding us," one of the Jewish celebrants said. "We felt threatened. We are here with little children and they are threatening us. We called the police. They promised they would handle it and send a patrol car, but the car never arrived. We called the police again and again, but the help never arrived."

At this stage of the incident, a few of the Jewish young men, with Israeli flags in hand, charged the gathering Arab mob. Within moments, a fight broke out, during which one of the Jewish youths suffered a light injury to the face. The Arabs, still threatening the Jewish families, called for more of their comrades to join them.

Within forty minutes of the start of the incident, 6,000 Arabs waving PLO flags and making menacing threats had gathered around the group of Jews in Megiddo Forest. It was only at this point that a border guard patrol jeep showed up on the scene, with just six soldiers.

Speaking from the forest at about 3:40 pm, one member of the Jewish group described the outcome of the day's events:

"The border guards are handling [the group of Arabs] and trying to block them. They are a few dozen meters from us. We are folding up to go. They are staying here. We can't stay here when we have so many little children with us. ...It is sad that this is the picture in the center of the country on the Independence Day of the State of Israel."

Ooh-rah, Devil Dog! Corporal Tyler Rock Has A Message For Reid

Corporal Tyler Rock, 1/6 Charlie Company, on the left, at my old home, Camp Hurricane Point, Ramadi.

Marine Corporal From A Bunker In Ramadi: “I Got A Message For That Douche Harry Reid”

This Email To Me, Harry, And America, Direct From A Grunt On The Front Lines Of Ramadi, Is Just Hours Old.

Today, from Corporal Tyler Rock in an outpost in downtown Ramadi. His first sentence is in response to an email from me:

“yeah i know how you feel. its going to be very weird leaving this place and going back to america. weve been here for almost an entire year and have lived in the center of it the whole time. its crazy that when we got here it was so hectic and now its calmed down so much. so it was awesome to be able to see that turn out.

yeah news worth reporting…. well ramadi was once dubbed by everyone as the worst city in the world. but we have done such a great job here that all the families in the area have worked with us on driving out the insurgency and that we work directly with the IA and the IP’s. the city has been cleaned up so well that the IP’s do most of the patrols now and we go out with them to hand out candy and toys to the children. you can tell that the people want us here to protect them from the thugs and gangs (insurgents). granted they would rather have peace and quit but they know that if we arent here they will be thrown around by the insurgents. a good example is this one mission we did. long story short we got blown up in multiple buildings and had to run into a families house. i spent my christmas holidays covered in ash from the mortar fire and the IED’s, sleeping under a dirty rug i found in the house. everyone was sleeping way to close for comfort just to stay warm. anyways. a family was there and they obviously didnt want us there. atleast at first. the daughters were very sick so our corpsman treated them. they didnt have electricity so we got them a generator for power, they were cold so we got them gas heaters, we got them food and water and then we gave them $500. by the end of the week long visit with them we were drinking tea with them. when we left we cleaned their house better than it was when we got there. i even have pictures with the family. they told us that they liked marines and they would help us as much as they could and they gave us some information on the insurgents in the area. we ended up catching a HUGE target down the road from there house because of it.

yeah and i got a qoute for that douche harry reid. these families need us here. obviously he has never been in iraq. or atleast the area worth seeing. the parts where insurgency is rampant and the buildings are blown to pieces. we need to stay here and help rebuild. if iraq didnt want us here then why do we have IP’s voluntering everyday to rebuild their cities. and working directly with us too. same with the IA’s. it sucks that iraqi’s have more patriotism for a country that has turned to complete shit more than the people in america who drink starbucks everyday. we could leave this place and say we are sorry to the terrorists. and then we could wait for 3,000 more american civilians to die before we say “hey thats not nice” again. and the sad thing is after we WIN this war. people like him will say he was there for us the whole time.

and for messages back home. i have a wife back home who is going through a tough time. i just cant wait to be back home and see everyone. haha and i cant wait to go back home and get some starbucks. i love it when those people serve me. hahaha”

Al Qaedacrats Working So Hard for the Insurgents

Reid Says Congress Will Force Troop Withdrawal


Defying a fresh veto threat, the Democratic-controlled Congress will pass legislation within days requiring the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq beginning Oct. 1, with a goal of completing the pullout six months later, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday.

Reid said the legislation ``immediately transitions the U.S. military away from policing a civil war.'' He said that troops that remain in Iraq after next April 1 could only train Iraqi security units, protect U.S forces and conduct "targeted counter-terror operations.''

The Nevada Democrat outlined the elements of the legislation in a speech a few hours after Bush said he will reject any legislation along the lines of what Democrats intend to pass.

''I will strongly reject an artificial timetable (for) withdrawal and/or Washington politicians trying to tell those who wear the uniform how to do their job,'' the president said. Bush made his comments to reporters in the Oval Office as he met with senior military leaders, including his top commander in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus.

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

Does Harry not understand what a Presidential veto is?

Harry Reid is one of the nastiest, meanest, rudest, and most arrogant traitors to ever reach a high political office. I just don't understand how our country allows such blatant treason and subversion at the highest levels of government. This man has become a grave threat to the security of this country and to our military.

This stuff from Reid is really getting to me, it is just beyond the pale!!!!!

Basketball Team Miami Heat Greet Soldiers Back from Iraq

Miami Heat guard Chris Quinn, left, and center Michael Doleac, right, stand with U.S. Army Sgt. First Class Brian Stovall, second from left, and Private First Class Joshua Langley as they are honored before a basketball game Sunday. The Heat are trying to recognize the military by honoring soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan before every home game.

Heat Greet Soldiers Back from Iraq


Pfc. Joshua Langley stood at midcourt in Army camouflage, waving and urging Miami Heat fans to cheer louder.

So they did. Not for the Heat, but for him.

And for a few seconds, Langley could think about something besides war.

All season, the Heat have honored soldiers just back from Iraq or Afghanistan before every home game, introducing them to fans immediately after "The Star-Spangled Banner.'' Heat coach Pat Riley came up with the idea, and several NBA teams have similar tributes.

"Those guys, they're not paid like us,'' Miami forward Udonis Haslem said. "But their job is probably one of the most important jobs anyone can do. They defend freedom. It's a privilege to shake their hands and meet them.''

Some soldiers honored at these Heat games are Purple Heart winners. Many received other awards and commendations. Some, like Langley, were back for only a brief time between stints. Langley, an honoree at Sunday's game, was on a 15-day leave from Iraq and is set to return there later this week.

"His uncle is a season-ticket holder and called and said he'd like to go to a game before he goes back to war,'' Riley said. "He's a gunner with the Delta Infantry, riding there supporting the ground troops in live fire. ... That's who this is for. That's what this is about.''

Heat players present the honorees with a wrapped gift box, containing items commemorating the team's ൗ Strong'' mantra used during last season's run to the NBA championship, along with Heat dog tags with the soldier's name engraved.

Most players take a minute during warmups to introduce themselves to the military honorees. Some soldiers spend the entire time snapping photos, marking the night they met Shaquille O'Neal and the NBA champions.

"They're very appreciative of it,'' Riley said.

So, too, are the Heat coaches and players.

Alonzo Mourning always approaches the honorees just after the ceremony, and always delivers the same message: "I appreciate you,'' the center tells each one.
"I've got a military family,'' Mourning said. "My father was in the military. I had two uncles in the military. My dad's uncle was in the military. My uncle fought in Vietnam. People just fail to realize how good we have it over here. Those guys fighting in Iraq, I'm very sympathetic to what they have to do because most of them, deep down inside, don't want to be there. But it's their job.''

Riley, who said he voted for President Bush when the Heat visited the White House a couple weeks ago, insists his motivation behind this program is anything but political. He wants politicians of all stripes to give the soldiers their due.

"They will say they care about the soldiers, but they're not doing anything for them,'' he said.

The Heat, he said, will do something for them.

Riley appears well-educated on the issue. He said the unemployment rate for Americans is around 5 percent, while noting the unemployment rate for disabled returning veterans is 17 percent. And that makes him seethe.

"I have my beliefs,'' Riley said. "I'm very proud, so much, to be an American. I am pro-government. I am for who I elected, all of those things. I am an advocate now for our troops, period. It's something I feel very strongly about. ... I just cannot stand the blame game.''

This has become a personal issue for Riley, who a generation ago was disturbed when soldiers returned from Vietnam often without any sort of welcome.

It's personal for Mourning, too.

During an earlier visit to Washington this season, the Heat had the chance to tour Walter Reed Medical Center, one of the nation's premier facilities for treating those wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. After hearing recent disclosures of roach-infested conditions and shoddy outpatient care, Mourning was angered.

"Ridiculous, man. ... It makes no sense to me,'' he said. "We've got to do more for these guys.''

Doing something as simple as bringing soldiers to midcourt and shaking their hand, Mourning said, is a start.

"It's more than appreciating them. It's more than honoring them. It's more than thanking them,'' Riley said. "It's simply making sure that they understand there's people who really care about what they do.''

Wild Thing's comment......

I am not a basketball fan, I love baseball, football and hockey. But I LOVE this story and just had to post it. I love how they feel about out troops and that makes my heart smile!

Homosexuals Brainwashing Children In Schools

Homosexuals Brainwashing Children Part I

Homosexuals Brainwashing Children - Part II

Apparently these two schools are private schools, so the parents had taken them ourt of public school and picked these schools to send their children too. Perhaps becuase the schools have this agenda who knows.

The one little girl that had two “mommies” and wrote the essay was so proud that she got to go to the gay pride parade every year. If you have seen the immorality that goes on at gay pride parades...I wouldn’t take my child that age to a Mardi Gras parade, let alone a gay pride parade.

In the second part of the video the teacher spends a long time lecturing the kids on how it’s all right for people of the opposite sex to get married. He tells them that it against the law, but implies that the law is wrong and that’s basically telling them you don’t have to follow laws you don’t believe in. Then they send the kids off in groups where they have to come to a consensus. The kids can clearly see that the only way to please the teacher is come up with the correct answer that homosexuality is okay. The poor kids that have been told it’s wrong by their parents and who try to stand up don’t have the reasoning skills at that age to stand up to the group think. It’s totally disgusting to see these poor children get manipulated.

I am so shocked at this happening.

Clinton Says Husband Would Be Ambassador

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday that if she is elected president, she would make her husband a roaming ambassador to the world, using his skills to repair the nation's tattered image abroad.

"I can't think of a better cheerleader for America than Bill Clinton, can you?" the Democratic senator from New York asked a crowd jammed into a junior high school gymnasium. "He has said he would do anything I asked him to do. I would put him to work."

Clinton spoke at a town hall-style meeting Saturday where she took questions from about 200 people. When asked what role the former president would play in her administration, she left no doubt it would be an important one.

"I'm very lucky that my husband has been so experienced in all of these areas," said Clinton, who pointed to the diplomatic assignments her husband has carried out since leaving office, such as raising money for tsunami victims.

That's precisely what America needs in the wake of a war in Iraq that's left America isolated and hated throughout much of the world, Hillary Clinton said.

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

So a A world tour of bribe taking and treason mongering. She would send Bill around the world to let the world’s leaders know she will sell out the USA for enough money deposited to certain numbered bank accounts in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands.

America is a miracle country. The greatest country the world has ever seen and I am very proud to be an American. I can only hope and pray that we never see such trash as the Clintons in the White House ever again.

The Gun That They Say Will Never... Ever Jam

YouTube Video of HK416 from the Discovery Channel's program FutureWeapons.

Army Won't Field Rifle Deemed Superior to M4 complete article

It's a debate that's gone on for years - and now it's finally coming to a head.

M4 Carbine

The compact M4 carbine - a shortened version of the M16 - that is now standard issue for most Army troops, some Marines and other specialized units is facing increased criticism because of its tendency to malfunction with even the minutest exposure to the elements.

Some ground communities, including special operations forces, have begun to sideline the M4 in favor of newer, gas-piston operated variants such as the Heckler & Koch-manufactured 416 and the FNH-built Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle, or SCAR

In a routine acquisition notice March 23, a U.S. Special Forces battalion based in Okinawa announced that it is buying 84 upper receiver assemblies for the HK416 to modify their M4 carbines. The M4 fires using a system that redirects gas from the expended round to eject it and reload another. The 416 and SCAR use a gas-operated piston that physically pushes the bolt back to eject the round and load another.

Carbon buildup from the M4's gas system has plagued the rifle for years, resulting in some close calls with Soldiers in combat whose rifles jammed at critical moments.

According to the solicitation for the new upper receiver assemblies, the 416 "allows Soldiers to replace the existing M4 upper receiver with an HK proprietary gas system that does not introduce propellant gases and the associated carbon fouling back into the weapon's interior. This reduces operator cleaning time, and increases the reliability of the M4 Carbine, particularly in an environment in which sand and dust are prevalent."

The 416 is used by the Army's elite Delta Force, and a recent Army Times investigation showed the service's top equipment buyers ignored data from the spec ops community showing the M4 had fundamental flaws. Enamored by the development of futuristic weapons such as the XM29 and, later, XM8 - neither of which were ever fielded - the M4 stayed in the hands of Soldiers deploying to hot, dusty, austere environments like Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Army would prefer to wait for the development of a new rifle firing an airburst, round - essentially leaping ahead of today's technology. But that innovation has been hard to find in the right weight class.

An Army spokeswoman for Program Executive Office Soldier, based at Fort Belvoir, Va., said in a statement the Army isn't buying into SOF's argument.
"At this time PEO Soldier is not procuring and does not have plans to procure the 416," said Army spokeswoman, Erin Thomas, in an email statement.
But special operations forces sometimes work outside the "Big Army" procurement system, so they can grab the best gear quickly.
"The elimination of the gas tube ... means that the M4 will function normally even if the weapon is fired full of water without first being drained," the justification for the 416 assembly buy states. "There isn't another company that offers these features in their products. It is a practical, versatile system."

Army weapons experts have been tinkering with new weapons designs, such as the HK-built XM8. Its modular design, rugged construction and accuracy intrigued many in the Army - and other services. But in 2005, the Army abandoned the XM8 after spending $33 million - though the Natick Soldier Systems Center has been looking at a shortened version of the XM8 as a personal defense weapon for officers and armored vehicle crews.

So far, however, the Army is unwilling to buy what the special operations community believes is a clearly superior system and is still spending money looking for another technology while Soldiers use what many say is an inferior weapon in harsh combat conditions.

"The Infantry School at Fort Benning, Georgia is currently conducting a Capabilities Based Assessment to determine future Army needs," Thomas said in the statement, declining to elaborate

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

Here is the
Special Operations Combat Assault Rifle (SCAR)

I might be wrong about this, but my understanding is the Japanese and the Italians both used 6.5mm rifle rounds. Odd how the Germans, Russians, Brits and the US all went for 7.62mm or larger. Do you suppose they knew something we have forgotten?

All I know is I think they should use the the right tool for the right job.

Jihadists Teaching Children To Behead Human Beings

Jihadist Video Shows Boy Beheading Man

KILI FAQIRAN, Pakistan (AP) -

The boy with the knife looks barely 12. In a high-pitched voice, he denounces the bound, blindfolded man before him as an American spy. Then he hacks off the captive's head to cries of "God is great!" and hoists it in triumph by the hair.

A video circulating in Pakistan records the grisly death of Ghulam Nabi, a Pakistani militant accused of betraying a top Taliban official who was killed in a December airstrike in Afghanistan.

An Associated Press reporter confirmed Nabi's identity by visiting his family in Kili Faqiran, their remote village in southwestern Pakistan.

The video, which was obtained by AP Television News in the border city of Peshawar on Tuesday, appears authentic and is unprecedented in jihadist propaganda because of the youth of the executioner.

Captions mention Mullah Dadullah, the Taliban's current top commander in southern Afghanistan, although he does not appear in the video. The soundtrack features songs praising Taliban supreme leader Mullah Omar and "Sheikh Osama"—an apparent reference to Osama bin Laden, who is suspected of hiding along the Afghan-Pakistan border.

The footage shows Nabi making what is described as a confession, being blindfolded with a checkered scarf.

"He is an American spy. Those who do this kind of thing will get this kind of fate," says his baby-faced executioner, who is not identified.

A continuous 2 1/2-minute shot then shows the victim lying on his side on a patch of rubble-strewn ground. A man holds Nabi by his beard while the boy, wearing a camouflage military jacket and oversized white sneakers, cuts into the throat.

Other men and boys call out "Allahu akbar!"—"God is great!"—as blood spurts from the wound.

The film, overlain with jihadi songs, then shows the boy hacking and slashing at the man's neck until the head is severed.

A Pashto-language voiceover in the video identifies Nabi and his home village of Kili Faqiran in Baluchistan province, which lies about two hours' drive from the Afghan border.

A reporter went to the village, and Nabi's distraught and angry father, Ghulam Sakhi, confirmed his son's identity from a still picture that AP made from the footage. He said neighbors had told him the video is available at the village bazaar, but he had no wish to see it.

Sakhi said his son had been a loyal Taliban member who fought in Afghanistan and sheltered the hard-line Afghan group's leaders in the family's mud-walled compound.

He blames the Taliban and wants to avenge his son's death.

"The Taliban are not mujahedeen. They are not fighting for the cause of Islam," the 70-year-old said. "If I got my hands on them I would kill them and even tear their flesh with my own teeth."

Qari Yousaf Ahmadi, who claims to speak for the Taliban, told AP he had no information about Nabi or the video. None of the group's commanders he contacted could confirm the execution, he said.

The method of Nabi's death was not unusual for Pakistan's lawless tribal regions. Suspected informers are regularly found beheaded and dumped along the side of the road in the lawless, mountainous regions along the Afghan-Pakistani border where al-Qaida and Taliban militants find sanctuary.

But such al-Qaida-style killings are rarely featured in the Taliban's increasingly frequent propaganda videos. The use of a child to conduct the beheading stands out even among those filmed by militants in Iraq.

"This is outright barbarism," Iqbal Haider, secretary-general of the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, said after viewing the video. "Whosoever has committed this, whether they are Taliban or anybody else or any Afghan or al-Qaida or anybody, they are enemy No. 1 of the Muslims."

The video accuses Nabi of responsibility for a U.S. airstrike that killed Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Osmani, who was regarded as one of the top three associates of Omar, the Taliban supreme leader. He was hit while traveling by car in Afghanistan's Helmand province Dec. 19.

Osmani was the highest-ranking Taliban leader to die since the U.S.- led invasion of Afghanistan that ousted the hard-line regime in late 2001 for refusing to hand over bin Laden following the Sept. 11 terror attack on the United States.

The U.S. military said at the time that Osmani's death was a serious blow to militant operations, and NATO commanders said this week that a feared spring offensive had yet to materialize.

Sakhi, a retired mosque preacher with a long gray beard, spoke unashamedly of his son's Taliban affiliation and wept twice during an interview in his simple home at the foot of a mountain valley in Baluchistan province.

He said Nabi fought against the anti-Taliban Northern Alliance that helped U.S. forces to victory in Afghanistan.

After returning to Pakistan, Nabi ran a religious school in the Baluchistan capital of Quetta and had regularly sheltered both Osmani and Dadullah at the family compound, the father said.

He said Nabi also bought weapons for Taliban fighters and organized medical treatment for those injured during fighting in Afghanistan.

Some days after Osmani's death, Nabi went to Peshawar and then to Wana, a tribal town considered a militant stronghold, to collect money from Taliban officials to buy guns and food for militants in Afghanistan, Sakhi said.

He said his son called at the end of January to reveal that a tribal council had sentenced him to death on charges of tipping off U.S. forces about Osmani's movements, despite his denials.

His son passed the phone to Dadullah, but the militant leader ignored his pleas for clemency, Sakhi said.

"I talked to him and said you visited us and my son was a close friend so why are you going to hang him? He just said, 'How are you?', and switched off the phone," Sakhi said.

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

What evil we are learning of that walks the face of this earth.

I am so glad I am an American, I am so grateful that we have our troops fighting this insane enemy. And I thank God that our God is real and mighty, and not some moon god like their Allah.

And who is Islam's Muhammad ? Who is he that leads these sheep on? The man that started the cult of pedophilia, murder and theft ?

He was an immoral, criminal, and violent . The five oldest and most trusted Islamic sources don’t portray Muhammad as a great and godly man. They reveal that he was a thief, liar, assassin, mass murderer, terrorist, warmonger, and an unrestrained sexual pervert engaged in pedophilia, incest, and rape.

He authorized deception, assassinations, torture, slavery, and genocide. He was a pirate, not a prophet. According to the Hadith and the Qur’an, Muhammad and his henchmen plundered their way to power and prosperity.

And by putting the Qur’an in chronological order and correlating it with the context of Muhammad’s life as it was reported in the Sira, Sunnah and Hadith, we also find that Allah mirrored his prophet’s character. Muhammad’s god condoned immoral and criminal behavior. Allah boasts about being a terrorist.

He claims to have deceived men, to have stolen their property, to have enslaved women and children, to having committed acts of murder, genocide, and sadistic tortures.

Islam a religion of Peace? I think NOT!

Baghdad Harry Just Keeps Fireing


Without acknowledging his comments yesterday when he said the "war is lost," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said President Bush and his allies "attacked those of us with courage to ask the tough questions and tell the truth about Iraq."

He described their criticism of him and other Democrats as "an effort to shift attention from this Administration's failed policies" in Iraq.

In a remarks on the Senate floor after Bush's speech today, Reid did not repeat the "war is lost" comments.

Instead, he said that "the longer we continue down the president's path the further we will be from responsibly ending this war." He repeated the sentiment two additional times in the speech and added, "but there is still a chance to change course and we must change course."

Reid also refuted the GOP claims following Reid's controversial remarks yesterday that Democrats don't support the troops and want to cut funding for them.

"We take a back seat to no one in supporting our troops," Reid said. "And we will never abandon our troops in a time of war."

Reid also said:

"The White House spin machine is working overtime in an effort defend its failed policies… I believe supporting our troops means giving them the funding they need and a strategy they deserve... It means stopping the partisan attacks and it means spending time working together in a bipartisan basis to develop an effective strategy to successfully end this war."

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

"attacked those of us with courage"


Reid is on a roll, call it a melt down or a loose cannon. But he is a TRAITOR and needs to be delt with as harshly as possible. If the Republican leaders do not step up to the plate on this one and let Reid have it full force, they might as well just say they are agreeing with Reid.

Reid is a traitor! He needs to be tried for treason and removed from office. He will be responsible for more American deaths because of his criminal remarks! It is OUR country too and OUR soldiers that are being denigrated by this sorry excuse for a Senator.

I called Reid’s offices in NV 775-686-5750 and 702-388-5020. I made it short and sweet: “I have comment for Reid. Do you want my name and phone #? ‘No’said the person. Sen. Reid is a Traitor to his country and is giving aid and comfort to our enemies and hurting our troops . Sen Reid is dispicable”.

They Could Not Even Wait 24 Hours

The very next day after the killings at the VA Tech campus I got a phone call. Not even 24 hours after the killings happened.
It was a recording and this is what the person said..........

Do you think it is good to allow people to carry guns while shopping at a grocery store.

Press one if you do think a person should NOT be allowed to carry a gun in a grocery store..

Press two if you think they should be allowed to carry a gun in a grocery store.

I was half listening to the stupid recorded call until they asked the question. So I don't remember who was calling, what organization but I sat there half in shock and the other part of me furious, blood boiling that the left could not even wait 24 hours to start pushing their agenda of us not having guns.

Amazing! I wasn't gonig to post about it, but it has been bugging me.The left has to be the coldest beings on this earth. We certaiknly see it over and over how they only care about their agenda.

There was a socialist in the house
My husband's brother was visiting here for a few days. He is a socialist, I have mentioned him before on here. He thinks Clinton is the best President we have ever had. augh! My husband debates him all the time about politics, the war, abortion etc.

Yesterday before his brother left to go back home.........
Angry Old Salt ( my husband) who are you thinking of voting for, for President?

Brother-in-law: Hillary, she is not my first choice but it would get Bill Clinton back in the White House and he would be the one running things.

I almost spit out my diet coke. God help us if all these Democrat jerks are thinking this way. They may hate Hillary and yet vote for her to get Bill in the WH again. AUGH!

After he left, AOS said..

Chrissie, I just can't believe he is my brother, we are so different.

Surrender Monkeys "Greening Up" The White House ~ Good Grief!

Pelosi, Democrats Launch 100 Percent Carbon Neutral ‘Green the Capitol Initiative’

Washington, D.C.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi was joined this afternoon by Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in accepting a preliminary report by the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) of the House Daniel Beard on efforts that would reduce the environmental impacts associated with the operations of the House building complex.

The preliminary report on the “Green the Capitol Initiative” was presented by the CAO in response to a March 1 letter by House Democratic leaders requesting the development of such an initiative.

“The environmental challenges we face are as local as our neighborhoods and as global as our planet,” Speaker Pelosi said. “The House must lead by example and it is time for Congress to act on its own carbon footprint. Today, we announce our intention to operate the House in a carbon neutral manner at the earliest possible date with a deadline of the end of this Congress.”
“I commend the CAO on this thoughtful preliminary report on how the House can take steps to operate in a sustainable manner that is more sensitive to the environment,” said Majority Leader Hoyer. “Improving energy efficiency is the most effective first step that any organization can take to make a positive effect on the world we live in and that we leave to our children and grandchildren.”

The recommendations in the CAO’s preliminary report include:

- Operate the House in a Carbon Neutral Manner

- Shift to 100 percent Renewable Electric Power

- Aggressively Improve Energy Efficiency

- Adoption of Sustainable Business Practices

- Continued Leadership on Sustainability Issues

- Offsets to Ensure Carbon Neutral Operations

“Implementing these important first steps signal we are not only doing the right thing, but we are taking steps that will eventually save money,” said Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz. “Through these recommendations we will show not only that these actions are environmentally beneficial, but are fiscally sound.”

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

Hey, Pelosi, how much carbon dioxide does your taxpayer-provided jet spew? You know, the bigger one you wanted as opposed to the one Hastert used to fly in?

Operate the House in a Carbon Neutral Manner

Does that mean House Democrats plan to stop breathing? One can hope.

Notice their five action items.

- Operate the House in a Carbon Neutral Manner
- Shift to 100 percent Renewable Electric Power
- Aggressively Improve Energy Efficiency
- Adoption of Sustainable Business Practices
- Continued Leadership on Sustainability Issues
- Offsets to Ensure Carbon Neutral Operations

Items 1-4 will never happen. Item 5 will happen because all it takes to implement that is taxpayer money.
These people are so frigging transparent. They will buy the magic carbon indulgence pixi dust, no doubt from campaign contributors, with our money.

GET THE MONEY TO OUR MILITARY YOU IDIOTS.....quit e****** around with this crap.

Here you go............

Three dead bodies turn up at the mortuary, all with very big smiles on
their faces. The coroner calls the police to tell them what has happened.

The Coroner tells the Inspector: "First body is a 72 year old Frenchman.
He died of heart failure while with his mistress. Hence the enormous

"The second body is an Irishman, 25 years of age. He won a thousand
dollars on the lottery and spent it all on whiskey. Died of alcohol
poisoning, hence the smile."

The Inspector asked, "What of the third body?"

"Ah," says the coroner, "This is the most unusual one... Nancy Pelosi,
Speaker of the House, 66, struck by lightning."

"Why is she smiling then?" inquires the Inspector.

"She thought she was having her picture taken."

Reid: U.S. Can't Win The War In Iraq

Reid: U.S. can't win the war in Iraq


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday the war in Iraq is "lost," triggering an angry backlash by Republicans who said the top Democrat had turned his back on the troops.

The bleak assessment was the sharpest yet from Reid, who has vowed to send President Bush legislation calling for combat to end next year. Reid said he told Bush on Wednesday that he thought the war could not be won through military force and only through political, economic and diplomatic means.
"I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and — you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows — (know) this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday," said Reid, D-Nev.

Republicans pounced on the comment as evidence, they said, that Democrats do not support the troops.

"I can't begin to imagine how our troops in the field, who are risking their lives every day, are going to react when they get back to base and hear that the Democrat leader of the United States Senate has declared the war is lost," said Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

The exchange came as the House headed toward a vote Thursday on whether to demand that troops leave Iraq next year. Last month, the House passed legislation that funded the war in Iraq but ordered combat missions to end by September 2008. The Senate passed similar, less-sweeping legislation that would set a nonbinding goal of bringing combat troops home by March 31, 2008.

Bush said he would veto either measure and warned that troops are being harmed by Congress' failure to deliver the funds quickly.

The Pentagon says it has enough money to pay for the Iraq war through June. The Army is taking "prudent measures" aimed at ensuring that delays in the bill financing the war do not harm troop readiness, according to instructions sent to Army commanders and budget officials April 14.

While $70 billion that Congress provided in September for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan has mostly run out, the Army has told department officials to slow the purchase of nonessential repair parts and other supplies, restrict the use of government charge cards, and limit travel.

The Army also will delay contracts for facilities repair and environmental restoration, according to instructions from Army Comptroller Nelson Ford. He said the accounting moves are similar to those enacted last year when the Republican-led Congress did not deliver a war funding bill to Bush until mid-June.

More stringent steps would be taken in May, such as a hiring freeze and firing temporary employees, but exceptions are made for any war-related activities or anything that "would result immediately in the degradation of readiness standards" for troops in Iraq or those slated for deployment.

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino called the Democrat's stance "disturbing" and all but dared Reid to cut off funding for the war.

"If this is his true feeling, then it makes one wonder if he has the courage of his convictions and therefore will decide to defund the war," she said.

Reid has left that possibility open. The majority leader supports separate legislation that would cut off funding for combat missions after March 2008. The proposal would allow money spent on such efforts as counterterrorism efforts and training Iraqi security forces.

Reid and other Democrats were initially reluctant to discuss such draconian measures to end the war, but no longer.

"I'm not sure much is impossible legislatively," Reid said Thursday. "The American people have indicated . . . that they are fed up with what's going on."

UPDATE: Video of Reid added

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

Proof that treasonous scumbag Reid works for our enemies! Hey Reid, because of your and the other Democrat support for al-Qaeda you are giving the American people to the Islamic Fascist. I am sure that you have secured your place in the new Sharia Law Government.

Just as Rush said the Democrats OWN DEFEAT! The Democrats hope for our loss in Iraq. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for the end of our Country and our way of life.

Harry Reid isn’t worthy of licking the bottoms of our troops boots after they’ve been on patrol in the slums of Baghdad. Reid can be reached 888-355-3588 (which is the Congressional switchboard).

Senator Cites Abortion Ruling Side by Side With VT Tragedy

Senator Cites Abortion Ruling Side by Side With VT Tragedy
By Nathan Burchfiel Staff Writer

( - Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) on Wednesday listed the Supreme Court's decision to uphold a ban on "partial birth abortions" along with the killing of 32 people at Virginia Tech, in describing what she called a hard and emotional week.

"I know this is a very hard and emotional week given everything that's happened," Boxer said at the opening of a speech on global warming in Washington, D.C. She then listed "continuing violence in Iraq ... the accident that our good, dear friend Gov. Corzine is suffering from, the Virginia Tech tragedy ... and today a Supreme Court decision that I believe endangers women's health."
(hear audio)

The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld a federal ban on the abortion procedure also called intact dilation and extraction. Pro-life activists characterize the procedure, in which a baby is partially delivered before being killed, as gruesome.

Opponents of the federal ban criticize its lack of a provision that would allow the procedure in cases where the pregnancy endangers the mother's health. The ban does allow for the procedure in cases that risk the mother's life.

Boxer was among 34 senators who voted against the ban when it was passed in 2003. She has been a staunch supporter of abortion rights, earning a 100 percent "pro-choice" rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America in 2006.

OH and this yo-yo jerk Obama

Boxer's colleague, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) came under fire earlier this week for comparing the violence at the Blacksburg, Va., college campus to the "verbal violence" of radio shock jock Don Imus, who was recently fired for using denigrating comments about a women's basketball team.

Wild Thing's comment......

Between Boxer and Obama as he tied the shootings to the Imus flap. OMG they just can’t help themselves!!! They are freaks of nature walking the face of this earth. These people have no values, no moral compass, no ethics and no integrity. What scares me is that people actually vote for evil people like Boxer.

"Made By A Muslim" Brand To Be Launched

Clothes made in Morocco, and presumably made by Muslims


Damascus, 19 April (AKI) - Besides saying it loudly and proudly, Muslims who treasure their religious heritage can also show it, and they will soon be able to do so by buying and wearing products bearing the "Made by a Muslim" label.

A group of Islamic businessmen meeting in Damascus, Syria have launched a initiative they say involves 7,500 companies around the world and which aims to encourage Muslims to boycott products made in countries hostile to Islam and to opt instead for those manufactured in Islamic nations.

"In light of the growing hostility faced by Islam and by Muslims in the Western world, after the events of September 11, a sentiment further amplified by the publication of offensive cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed," the businessmen said in a statement, they had decided to set up a computerised international database that contains guidelines for the production, distribution and sale of products "that can represent an alternative to products from the West".

The strategy involves labelling products so that counsumers will be able to know where they originate from and that they have been made by Muslims. For example: Made in Syria and Made by a Muslim.

The businessmen who have launched the initiative say the hope the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the body that groups together most Muslim nations, will support it and that will press governments of member states to promote the Muslim-made products.

Muslims made this.....

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

So kind of a jihadist FUBU? Just what the world needs!

The question is often asked, "Why can't or don't Muslims integrate with the societies they migrate to"? The answer is they don't want to integrate. Their plan is to dominate.

Rep. Keith Ellison to Jews: Reach out to CAIR

Keith Ellison (aka Keith Hakim, Keith X Ellison and Keith Ellison Muhammad)

Ellison to Jews: Reach out to CAIR

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) unsurprisingly does CAIR’s bidding. Jews will reach out to CAIR the day they reject the legitimacy of the state of Israel and judge legitimate the Palestinian ‘resistance’`s mass-murder of diners and commuters, which is to say: not likely very soon...though our own quota of useful idiots have reached out to CAIR with the following results....

The first American Muslim in the U.S. Congress called on Jewish groups to engage with a controversial American Muslim body.

"If CAIR is willing to talk, talk to CAIR," Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said of the Council on American Islamic Relations.

His address Tuesday to the Reform Movement’s Consultation on Conscience conference in Washington was the first speech to a national Jewish group for Ellison, who emphasized that he does not share all of CAIR’s views.

The organization is among the harshest critics of Israel, and in the 1990s defended Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist organization. It has muted such support since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, but still will not condemn Palestinian terrorist attacks as it does attacks by al-Qaida.

Ellison spoke positively of his recent tour of Israel, the Palestinian areas and Syria

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

NO, how about instead .......reach out for an Uzi!!!

Pet Food Recall Expanded Again

Chemical Found in Second Pet Food Ingredient, Recall Expanded
Fox News........ for complete article

The chemical, melamine, is believed to have contaminated rice protein concentrate used to make a variety of Natural Balance Pet Foods products for both dogs and cats, the Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday.

Previously, the chemical was found to contaminate wheat gluten used by at least six other pet food and treat manufacturers.

Both ingredients were imported from China, though by different companies and from different manufacturers.

A lawmaker said Wednesday the Chinese have refused to grant visas to FDA inspectors seeking to visit the plants where the ingredients were made. An FDA spokesman later said the visas were not refused but that the agency had not received the necessary invitation letter to get visas.
"It troubles me greatly the Chinese are making it more difficult to understand what led to this pet food crisis," Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told The Associated Press after meeting with the FDA commissioner, Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach.

A message left Wednesday with the Chinese Embassy in Washington was not immediately returned.

Natural Balance said it was recalling all its Venison and Brown Rice canned and bagged dog foods, its Venison and Brown Rice dog treats and its Venison and Green Pea dry cat food.

The recalls now include products made by at least seven companies and sold under more than 100 brands.

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

Can you IMAGINE - the FDA is being REFUSED to inspect the plants. The safety and unsanitary conditions must be horrendous.
And what is ludicrous is Science Diet is making their food in Kansas (the wheat belt) with wheat imported from China.

When all this horrible stuff started with the dog and cat food, we switched to this. They like it and it is safe.

Defend Freedom...It's Everybodys Job

An act of heroism amid the horror............

In this photo released by the Librescu family in Israel, Tuesday, April 17, 2007, Romanian-born lecturer Liviu Librescu is seen in an undated photo. The Israeli lecturer killed in the Virginia Tech massacre was a Holocaust survivor who later escaped from Communist Romania. Relatives said Librescu, an internationally respected aeronautics engineer and a lecturer at Virginia Tech for 20 years, saved the lives of several students by blocking the gunman before he was gunned down in Monday's shooting, which coincided with Israel's Holocaust remembrance day.

Israeli professor killed in US attack

As Jews worldwide honored on Monday the memory of those who were murdered in the Holocaust, a 76-year-old survivor sacrificed his life to save his students in Monday's shooting at Virginia Tech College that left 33 dead and over two dozen wounded.

Professor Liviu Librescu, 76, threw himself in front of the shooter when the man attempted to enter his classroom. The Israeli mechanics and engineering lecturer was shot to death, "but all the students lived - because of him," Virginia Tech student Asael Arad - also an Israeli - told Army Radio.

Several of Librescu's other students sent e-mails to his wife, Marlena, telling of how he had blocked the gunman's way and saved their lives, said Librescu's son, Joe.

"My father blocked the doorway with his body and asked the students to flee," Joe Librescu said in a telephone interview from his home outside of Tel Aviv. "Students started opening windows and jumping out."

Librescu was respected in his field, his son said.

"His work was his life, in a sense," said Joe. "That was a good place for him to practice his research."

Librescu was a Holocaust survivor who escaped communist Romania for Israel in 1978 and moved to Virginia in 1986. By coincidence, he was murdered on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

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

A noble man indeed! Clearly, the professor had something to do in his life that spared him during such horrific events but lead him to stare evil in the face unflinchingly. He did not ‘go silently into that good night’.

Between this man and the Zach Petrowski student who threw himself at a door, you have the sense that there were folks who saw what was what and knew not to try words when words meant nothing.

Our true character is always revealed by our first response. I can think of no better way to leave this world than in spontaneous sacrifice for your fellow human beings. He acted the way many soldiers have acted by throwing themselves on live grenades. God Bless him! And God bless Petrowski the student I mentioned also.

Darleen has also written about this wonderful man.

Westboro Baptist Church Is Going To Funeral of VT Victims

The most hated family in America, the Westboro Baptist Church, who hates soldiers and pickets soldiers' funerals.

"Thank God For Dead Soldiers"

This sick church you see in the above video has now decided to ..........

WBC to Preach at Funerals of Virginia Tech Dead

Westboro Baptist Church

WBC will preach at the funerals of the Virginia Tech students killed on campus during a shooting rampage April 16, 2007. You describe this as monumental horror, but you know nothing of horror -- yet. Your bloody tyrant Bush says he is 'horrified' by it all. You know nothing of horror -- yet. Your true horror is coming. "They shall also gird themselves with sackloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads" (Eze. 7:18).

Why did this happen, you ask? It's simple. On April 16, 2007, this nation, through the offices of your military and conspirators therewith took a shot at the servants of God -- your marksman was limp and lame and he had terror all around, so he did a lousy job. But what you get for your trouble is that your God shot at you! The LORD your God sent a crazed madman to shoot at your children, and he didn't miss. Get this straight -- God sent this South Korean madman to kill 31 of your children at Virginia Tech. Was God asleep while this took place? Was He on vacation? Of course not. He willed this to happen to punish you for assailing His servants.

Wild Thing's comment.....
First of all there is NO way these people are Christians, NO WAY.
I sure hope there is a special place in hell for this church and it's members for what they have done regarding our troops and now what they plan to do at the funeral for the Virginia Tech students that were killed.

Killing Rampage at Virginia Tech Campus

Second Male May Be Involved in VA Tech Massacre
Police Cite Person of Interest in Dorm Killing; Dead Gunman Yet to Be ID'd

ABC news

A tranquil college campus in Virginia became a killing field Monday morning. At least 33 people are dead in the worst mass shooting in modern American history.

A gunman opened fire in a dorm and classroom at Virginia Tech on Monday, killing 33 people and wounding another 30 before he was killed, police said.

On the Web site, Tech reported the shootings at opposite sides of the 2,600-acre campus at West Ambler Johnston, a co-ed residence hall that houses 895 people, and said there were "multiple victims" at Norris Hall, an engineering building.

Campus police have identified a person of interest who is not currently in police custody. Police say the person of interest is a male who knew the female who was killed in the original double homicide at the West Ambler Johnston Hall dormitory. Flinchum also said he is not a student and that he knew the female who was killed in the original double homicide.

Two guns were recovered, a 9 mm pistol and a .22-caliber pistol.

Flinchum said they have ruled out the possibility of a murder-suicide in the first shooting, and that investigators have a preliminary identification of the shooter involved in the Norris Hall shooting. The police will not release the identity at this time.

When asked to describe the scene at Norris Hall, where the second shooting took place, Flinchum called it, "one of the worst things I've seen in my life."

While Flinchum would not name any of the victims, he did say university staff members were among the dead.

Some students question why administrators did not cancel classes after the first shooting, and why it took more than two hours to inform the university community via e-mail about the shootings.

According to Steger, the administration locked down West Ambler Johnston Hall dormitory after the first shooting. But classes weren't canceled because the shooting was believed to be tied to a domestic dispute and campus police believed the shooter had left the campus.

"Schools should be places of safety and sanctuary in learning," President Bush said from the White House. "When that sanctuary is violated, the impact is felt in every American classroom and every American community."

Wild Thing's comment......

This is an unspeakable tragedy. Prayers for the loved ones and families of those killed. And prayers too for those injured and healing emotionally for all the victims.

Now we watch while they begin to blame guns, Bush, or anyone else except for the actual kiler for these murders. Teachers should be trained how to use a gun and just think if some of the teachers had been able to have a gun, say locked in their desk they could have done something to at least stop some of the killings that occured.

Sadr Raises Pressure For US To Withdraw

Sadr raises pressure for US to withdraw

The United States faced a fresh challenge to its presence in Iraq yesterday when supporters of Moqtada al-Sadr's radical Shia Muslim movement quit the Baghdad government to demand a deadline for withdrawal of its troops.

By pulling out of the ruling Shia Alliance coalition, Sadr has moved a step closer to outright confrontation with the American-led military effort to stabilise Iraq.

A Shia militiaman wears an identity card with a picture of Moqtada al-Sadr on the back

The loss of Sadr's followers, including six cabinet ministers, does not deprive Nouri al-Maliki, the prime minister, of an overall majority but does reduce his scope for horse trading between competing factions.

Sadr triggered the crisis in a letter to supporters that demanded a timetable for withdrawal of foreign troops from Iraq. It said:

"I pray for God Almighty to bestow on the Iraqi people a government that is independent from occupation and one that works hard in the service of its people."

The movement holds one quarter of parliamentary seats in the Alliance which governs in coalition with Kurdish parties. The bloc's parliamentary representative, Nassar al-Rubaie, said the decision was taken after Mr Maliki rejected an ultimatum to confront the Americans.

Behind the scenes, the split has been on the cards for months. Mr Maliki issued a statement yesterday thanking Sadr for instructing his ministers to resign, so that competent "independents" could be appointed.

The White House welcomed the development, reinforcing its support for Mr Maliki as he launches a much postponed government reshuffle.

Sadrists were until yesterday in control of key ministries including health, transport and tourism.

There were widespread accusations that these ministries had become sectarian enforcement operations under the influence of their political leaders.

In parallel Sadr has sought to distance his movement from an unpopular government. Mr Rubaie said:

"The prime minister has to express the will of the Iraqi people. They went out in a demonstration in their millions asking for a timetable for withdrawal. We noticed the prime minister's response did not express the will of the people"

Mr Maliki managed to persuade the Madhi army, the armed wing of Mr Sadr's movement, to reduce attacks on coalition forces but recently Sadr has resumed aggressive activities and his supporters have taken to the streets to challenge the authorities.

Don't you just love how this reject has been playing both sides of the fence. He has representation in a legitimate government, but expects that government to look the other way when his followers intimidate and murder those who “see” things differently then he does. Its time for Maliki to step up to the plate and say “Thanks, but we dont need you anymore.”

He has called for the killing of American troops. That makes him the enemy, not opposition political party.Take him out and take out his followers when they protest in the street.

Problem solved, we win.

Lawmaker Under Fire For 'Illegal Alien' E-Mail

Lawmaker Under Fire For 'Illegal Alien' E-Mail
Man Apologizes; Some Colleagues Not Satisfied


A state lawmaker is coming under fire for sending what he thought was a funny e-mail message to his colleagues.

Some people do not find it very amusing and want him to make a public apology.

Rep. Don Brown, R-DeFuniak Springs, sent a message from his state e-mail account that said, "Don't forget to pay your taxes - 12 million illegal aliens are depending on you!"

Brown said the message was intended to be humorous and to remind people about the upcoming tax deadline.

He apologized and said as far as he's concerned, he's done with the issue.

But members of the Florida Hispanic Legislative Caucus are taking exception to Brown's e-mail, calling it inappropriate and saying such e-mails have no place in the Florida House.

"That term, illegal alien, is extremely insulting to many individuals and I think there has to be something a little bit more public and a little bit more contrite in his apology," an unidentified member of the caucus said.

OH but the Democrat illegal aliens lover is NOT satisfied with an apology. NOOOooooooo
Check this out

Lawmaker draws criticism for illegal-immigration joke

Rep. Luis Garcia Jr., D-Miami Beach, the interim chairman of the Hispanic Caucus, sent a message of his own -- to Speaker Marco Rubio, R-Miami, saying he had heard several complaints from Hispanic members and Haitian constituents.

"This e-mail has no place in the Florida House," Garcia said.
State Rep. Rene Garcia, R-Hialeah, said that "the comments in this e-mail reflect an ignorance as to the founding of both this state and our country. It deeply saddens me that this mentality still exists in what we consider to be a forward-looking government."

Wild Thing's comment......
Hey Garcia KISS my LEGAL American Ass!

Let me get this straight. We can no longer refer to illegal alien criminals as illegal aliens because they might get offended? This would be funny if it wasn’t so scary. I am sick and tired of the GOP apologizing. Apologize for what? The obvious fact that illegal aliens take advantage of tax payer dollars? They do. In fact, I can say on first hand knowledge that this is fact.

Absurd. PC culture run amok. They are illegal aliens! They are not lawfully here! Whats next? Will we hear PC folks complaining that we shouldn’t call drug dealers drug dealers and murderers murderers? Identifying a criminal by the name of his crime should not be offensive. And it sure as heck isn’t racist as some of the La Raza types have said.

When are our feckless leaders going to step up take a litte heat and speak the truth! ILLEGAL ALIEN IS JUST WHAT IT IS ILLEGAL!!!!!! There is no apology for who they are, you have no rights in this country because you have broken our law by entering ILLEGALLY. These organizations that demand rights, apologies, and all sorts of give me’s are in it for political cloat, media attention and government funding they can extort from our tax dollars!.

There is no doubt in my mind that political correctness is going to absolutely destroy this country. It damn near already has.

Officials Honor Audie Murphy Club Inductees

Officials honor Audie Murphy Club inductees

Saturday, 14 April 2007
By Sgt. Kevin McSwain
13th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary)

LSA ANACONDA — Eight Soldiers were inducted into the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club, an elite group for noncommissioned officers, April 6.

The ceremony, held in Sustainer Theater, recognized soldiers throughout Iraq for their professionalism and outstanding performance based on the Audie Murphy merit board.

The Soldiers inducted into the Audie Murphy Club were:
Staff Sgt. Jason Fiedler, 411th Engineer Brigade
Staff Sgt. Rafael Ramirez, 657th Area Support Group
Staff Sgt. Jose D. Garcia, Company B, Brigade Troops Battalion, 15th Sustainment Brigade, 1st Calvary Division
Sgt. Mandi Brassell, 45th Sustainment Brigade
Staff Sgt. Michael Thornton, 22nd Personnel Service Battalion, 45th SB
Staff Sgt. Marada Blakely, 164th Corps Support Group
Sgt. Carlos Bermudez, 164th CSG
Staff Sgt. Charles Duke, 82nd Sustainment Brigade.

The event, hosted by the 13th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary), had more than 200 servicemembers in attendance. As part of the official party, Brig. Gen. Michael Terry, 13th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) commanding general, gave words of encouragement to the newest inductees and to the soldiers who aspire to be a part of the organization.

“Going forward I want everyone to take initiative to become a member of this organization,” he said.

The commanding general said the group of noncommissioned officers receiving their medallions in this ceremony should feel even more pride than those who receive the same honor in the United States.

“Earning this membership alone is difficult,” he said. “Earning it in this combat environment is remarkable.”

Terry challenged all the senior noncommissioned officers in the room to prepare their soldiers to become an inductee into the Audie Murphy Club.

“If you have any soldiers remotely interested in this honor, you must begin preparing them now,” he said.

As Terry spoke about Audie Murphy, he educated soldiers in the audience on the history of this brave soldier and introduced the guest speaker, Multinational Corps-Iraq Command Sgt. Maj. Neil Ciotola.

Ciotola began by giving the audience a word of advice he received from Command Sgt. Maj. Terry Fountain, 13th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) command sergeant major.

“In everything you do, there is a chance to train,” he said. “There is always time.”

As he spoke, he explained what his quote meant while he talked about the achievement of the soldiers who were being inducted at the ceremony.

“Take every opportunity to do it all to the best of your ability,” he said.

Ciotola said this was an opportunity to recognize the hard work each soldier put into being selected into the club.

“This is an opportunity to lift these soldiers up during this ceremony,” he said. “And there is no other group of people I would want to be with right now on my birthday.”

Ciotola said the eight soldiers being inducted have done more than just say what they could do, they proved it.

“Their deeds are the personification of their words,” he said. “You all made a choice to excel, to become the best, and be a part of the Audie Murphy Club.”

The inductees received an Army Commedation Medal, an Audie Murphy Club medallion and coins from all three members of the official party.

When a Soldier is inducted into the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club, they are given a medallion, which is approximately 2 inches in diameter. The medallion is suspended by a broad powder-blue ribbon, which represents the traditional color of the infantry.

The club, which originated in Fort Hood, Texas, only inducts exceptional noncommissioned officers who exemplify the characteristics of the soldier the club was founded in memory of.

Audie Murphy was one of the greatest combat soldiers in the history of the United States serving during World War II. He was decorated with every single American medal for valor, along with three French and one Belgian medal.

Treason Brought To Us By The Democrats

Democrats and treason...for complete is excellent
by Melanie Morgan

Democrat Senate leader Harry Reid, who is not commander in chief and who does not have the authority to send American troops into battle or call them home, nevertheless has announced that he will lead the fight to deny funding to U.S. troops if they do not surrender to the forces of terrorism and evacuate from Iraq by March 31, 2008.

Reid cannot even attempt to pretend that this was a principled stand to lower American causalities in one theater and fight the war on terrorism on another front.

Less than five months ago – on Nov. 30, 2006 – Reid sent a note to his fellow Democrats in the Senate that said: "We're not going to do anything to limit funding or cut off funds."

Sen. Reid knew better then and he knows better now.

Reid has chosen to undercut our troops with the knowledge that his actions are emboldening Islamic terrorists to kill more U.S. troops and to launch more brazen terrorist attacks against American civilians here at home.

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

The Democrats’ refusal to acknowledge reality is one of their most dangerous traits, and in itself should disqualify them for holding public office.

I would recommend showing this to anyone that says Islam does not have an agenda to take over and rule all of us.

In the video they mention the word Kafir: It is Arabic for "infidel"—one who refuses to submit to the Islamic God (Allah) and the Islamic faith.

Prayers For Our Friends In Texas

DALLAS - A severe storm dropped nearly a foot of snow on parts of the central Plains Friday and spawned at least one tornado in Texas, where one death was blamed on high winds.

The storm shattered glass at a Forth Worth grocery store, injuring five people, while a man unloading his truck elsewhere was crushed under his load of lumber, fire spokesman Lt. Kent Worley said.

In nearby Haltom City, several homes and businesses were damaged and about a dozen tractor-trailers were pushed onto their sides. The Valley Missionary Baptist Church there was destroyed.

About 23,000 customers were without power Friday because the storms downed trees and power lines, said Gailee Cardwell, a spokeswoman for TXU Electric Delivery.

The storm also forced the cancellation of NASCAR Nextel Cup qualifying races at Texas Motor Speedway. Thousands of fans were advised to move to safety as tornado sirens blared at the speedway in Fort Worth.

Wild Thing's comment.....

Just wanted to say I hope and pray all our friends are ok from the storm in Texas and it now says it is moving toward the Northwest area.

Al-Masryoon, Egypt, April 12, 2007

The Egyptian opposition daily Al-Masryoon reported that high-level diplomatic sources said that Muslim Brotherhood General Guide Muhammad Mahdi 'Akef, several members of his office, and Muslim Brotherhood MPs had been invited by U.S. Democrat congressmen to visit the U.S. next month and to speak to Congress.

Well, if you're going to surrender, you need to get all of the people you're going to surrender to on board. Need lots of meetings with your new masters.

Motto of the Muslim Brotherhood:

Democrat Met Muslim Brotherhood Member In Egypt

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md

Democrat met opposition leader in Egypt
CAIRO, Egypt

A top U.S. Democratic congressman met a leading member of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, an outlawed opposition group, during a recent visit to the country, the Islamic fundamentalist group and U.S. officials said Saturday.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer met with the Muslim Brotherhood's parliament leader, Mohammed Saad el-Katatni, twice on Thursday — once at the parliament building and then at the home of the U.S. ambassador to Egypt, said Brotherhood spokesman Hamdi Hassan.

U.S. Embassy spokesman John Berry would only confirm that Hoyer, who represents Maryland, met with el-Katatni at U.S. Ambassador Francis Ricciardone's home at a reception with other politicians and parliament members.

Though officially banned since 1954, the Brotherhood is tolerated by the government and has become Egypt's largest opposition group and President Hosni Mubarak's most powerful rival.

Its members, who run as independents, make up the largest opposition bloc in parliament, holding about one-fifth of its 454 seats.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has refused in the past to meet with the Muslim Brotherhood.

But Berry said U.S. government policy does not bar meetings with Brotherhood members of parliament and Hoyer's talks with el-Katatni were not a change in U.S. policy toward the group.

"It's our diplomatic practice around the world to meet with parliamentarians, be they members of political parties or independents," Berry said. "We haven't changed our policy with regard to the Muslim Brotherhood as an organization."

The State Department had no comment Saturday on Hoyer's meetings with the group.

Berry stressed that Hoyer met with el-Katatni in his capacity as an independent member of Egyptian parliament. He would not say what the two discussed.

Hassan said the two lawmakers discussed developments in the Middle East, the "Brotherhood's vision" and opposition movements in Egypt. He said the two met privately at the ambassador's home and with other members of Hoyer's bipartisan delegation and Egyptian lawmakers at the parliament building.

Hoyer's meeting came just a day after Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi drew sharp criticism from the Bush administration for meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus.

Pelosi and other Democrats argue the administration needs to engage Syria to resolve some of the most intractable problems in the Middle East, such as Iraq and the Israeli-Arab conflict. But the Bush administration rejects that approach, accusing Syria of exacerbating the troubles in neighboring Iraq and Lebanon.

Jon Alterman, a Mideast specialist at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, said Bush administration officials may have avoided meeting Muslim Brotherhood members because that could strain relations with the secular Egyptian government, one of the closest U.S. allies in the Middle East.

"The difficulty when it gets to Egypt is that the Brotherhood is not a legal group within Egypt and the U.S. government is wary of violating laws in countries in which it operates," he told The Associated Press on Saturday.

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

Wow, the media sure hid this story. This goes right along with the other story about the Democrats inviting members of the Muslim Brotherhood to Congress. Good grief! These Democrats are nuts and VERY dangerous!

We have our troops fighting against the members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Iraq and Afghanistan and other places where our troops have tracked them down around the world. And what do the Democrats do? The go and meet with the enemy. I swear I have had it! If I was a guy I would love to punch out the lights of every Dem I meet from now on.

You can CLICK this link to read a short write up on The Muslim Brotherhood. There are tons of links online that tell all about the horrible Muslim Brotherhood, their helping the Nazi's, and how dangerous they are.

U.S. man accused of plot to bomb resorts

U.S. man accused of plot to bomb resorts


A federal grand jury indicted an Ohio man on charges of joining al-Qaida and conspiring to bomb European tourist resorts and U.S. government facilities and military bases overseas, officials announced Thursday.

Christopher Paul, 43, of Columbus, trained with al-Qaida in the early 1990s, the indictment issued Wednesday says.

The indictment says he told al-Qaida members in Pakistan and Afghanistan that he was dedicated to committing violent jihad.

Paul is charged with providing material support to terrorists, conspiracy to provide support to terrorists and conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction.

Fred Alverson, spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Columbus, said Thursday that he couldn't comment further on the case.

Paul was in the Franklin County Jail late Wednesday after a U.S. District Court hearing was postponed until his attorney, Don Wolery, could be present. Wolery did not immediately return a message seeking comment Thursday morning.

The indictment says Paul traveled to Germany about April 1999 to train co-conspirators to use explosives to attack European and U.S. targets, including government buildings and vacation spots frequented by American tourists.

It does not address specific resorts or buildings that might have been targeted, but it gives U.S. embassies, military bases and consular premises in Europe as examples.

Paul later sent a wire transfer of $1,760 from a financial institution in the U.S. to an alleged co-conspirator in Germany, prosecutors allege.

A fax machine in him home contained names, phone numbers and contact information for key al-Qaida leadership and associates, according to the indictment.

Paul also is accused of storing material at his father's house in Columbus, including a book on improvised land mines, money from countries in the Middle East and a letter to his parents explaining that he would be "on the front lines," according to the indictment.

His sister, Sandra Laws, answered the door at the home and said she and her father live there. She said the family will be speaking to Paul's attorney later Thursday and declined further comment.

Paul was born Paul Kenyatta Laws. He legally changed his name to Abdulmalek Kenyatta in 1989, then to Christopher Paul in 1994, according to the indictment.

After finishing his al-Qaida training in the early 1990s, he returned to Columbus to teach martial arts at a mosque, the indictment said.

Paul is married to a woman named in the indictment as F. Bashir, investigators said. Paul and Jenhawi, who have known each other about a year, attend the same mosque and their daughters play together, Jenhawi said. Paul's daughter is about 9 years old and is homeschooled, he said.

Two other Columbus men have been charged in federal investigators' terrorism investigation. Iyman Faris was sentenced in 2003 to 20 years in prison for a plot to topple the Brooklyn Bridge. Nuradin Abdi, accused of plotting to blow up a Columbus-area shopping mall, is awaiting trial on charges including conspiring to aid terrorists.

Mexican truck stampede to hit U.S.!
WND ....for complete article

Despite congressional opposition, the Bush administration is fully committed to beginning within weeks a pilot test that will allow Mexican trucks to operate freely across the U.S.

A spokesman for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Ian Grossman, told WND the agency plans to grant the first authority for a Mexican trucking company to operate its long-haul rigs throughout the U.S. as early as the end of this month.

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

Why don't they just use Grayhound Buses for all the illegals who no longer have to walk across the border?

On the news awhile back they showed showed Troopers that investigated American trucks and truck drivers and took them off the road for different violations, will they do the same with the mexican drivers and trucks or will they have aclu complain of violations against their civil rights as they go on our highways killing Americans?

Hunter is against this so he is sponsoring HR 1756 to include Mexican transport vehicles in the rules and regs domestic transport vehicles must abide by. Thus ensuring protection for American motorists and pedestrians, and less drug and illegal alien smuggling.

Contact your Congressmen and urge them to support HR 1756.

Mystery Cat Takes Regular Bus To The Shops

Mystery cat takes regular bus to the shops

Bus drivers have nicknamed a white cat Macavity after it has started using the No 331 several mornings a week.

The feline, which has a purple collar, gets onto the busy Walsall to Wolverhampton bus at the same stop most mornings - he then jumps off at the next stop 400m down the road, near a fish and chip shop.

The cat was nicknamed Macavity after the mystery cat in T.S Elliot's poem. He gets on the bus in front of a row of 1950s semi-detached houses and jumps off at a row of shops down the road which include a fish and chip shop.

Driver Bill Khunkhun, 49, who first saw the cat jumping from the bus in January, said: "It is really odd, the first time I saw the cat jumping off the bus with a group of passengers. I hadn't seen it get on which was a bit confusing.

"The next day I pulled up on Churchill Road to let a couple of passengers on. As soon as I opened the doors the cat ran towards the bus, jumped on and ran under one of the seats, I don't think any of the passengers noticed.
"Because I had seen it jump off the day before I carried on driving and sure enough when I stopped just down the road he jumped off - I don't know why he would catch the bus but he seems to like it. I told some of the other drivers on this route and they have seen him too."

Since January, when the cat first caught the bus he has done it two or three times a week and always gets on and off at the same stops.

Passenger, Paul Brennan, 19, who catches the 331 to work, said: "I first noticed the cat a few weeks ago. At first I thought it had been accompanied by its owner but after the first stop it became quite clear he was on his own.

"He sat at the front of the bus, waited patiently for the next stop and then got off. It was was quite strange at first but now it just seems normal. I suppose he is the perfect passenger really - he sits quietly, minds his own business and then gets off."

Pelosi Terror-state Appeasement Tour May Continue. Next stop: Tehran

Pelosi, Lantos may be interested in diplomatic trip to Iran

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Tom Lantos, D-San Mateo, just back from a trip to Syria that sparked sharp criticism from Republicans and the Bush administration, suggested Tuesday that they may be interested in taking another diplomatic trip - to open a dialogue with Iran.

The Democratic speaker from San Francisco and Lantos, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, were asked at a press conference in San Francisco Tuesday whether on the heels of their recent trip to the Middle East they would be interested in extending their diplomacy in the troubled region with a visit to Iran.

"Speaking just for myself, I would be ready to get on a plane tomorrow morning, because however objectionable, unfair and inaccurate many of (Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's) statements are, it is important that we have a dialogue with him,'' Lantos said. "Speaking for myself, I'm ready to go -- and knowing the speaker, I think that she might be.''

Pelosi did not dispute that statement, and noted that Lantos -- a Hungarian-born survivor of the Holocaust -- brought "great experience, knowledge and judgment" to the recent bipartisan congressional delegation trip to Israel, the Palestinian territories, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia in addition to Syria.

Pelosi was criticized by President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and other members of the administration for meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad, who the administration said has meddled in the politics and fomented violence in Iraq and Lebanon and is a state sponsor of terrorism.

The president also has tried to isolate Iran, saying its government, too, has aided attacks against Americans in Iraq and elsewhere while ramping up its efforts to build nuclear weapons.

Lantos said that for more than a decade, he has been trying to obtain a visa to visit Tehran with the help of former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan -- and to date neither he nor any other member of Congress has been successful.

"There was, of course, a shadow over all of it, Iran: Iran's support of terrorist groups is something that must be stopped,'' she said. "Iran's quest for a nuclear weapon is something that must not happen and we must stop them with the strongest of diplomatic measures.''
Lantos noted that "with the speaker's support,'' he has co-sponsored legislation in the House that calls for making available to all countries -- including Iran -- nuclear fuel for peaceful purposes under international oversight by establishing a "nuclear fuel bank."
"So if the Iranian president says that he is developing (nuclear material) for peaceful purposes, we are assisting him in that process,'' said Lantos, who anticipated the legislation could pass as early as May.

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

Time for her to be arrested and tried under the logan act. The way it was reported this afternoon...Lantos said that they wanted to go to Iran..but Iran had turned down their VISA request...but, if Iran changed their mind...that he and Nancy would go right away.

Dems Too Cowardly To Debate on Fox Channel ~ LOL

Clinton, Obama just say no to Fox
Presidential debate thrown into jeopardy

Both Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama said they would not participate in a presidential debate sponsored by Fox News Channel, throwing the event in jeopardy. The two senators joined former Sen. John Edwards, who announced on Friday he would not participate in the debate, one of four being held by the Congressional Black Caucus Institute.

The Congressional Black Caucus contracted with Fox to co-sponsor two of its debates -- one Democratic and one Republican -- and gave the two others to CNN.

But now the top three Democrats in the race have said they will not participate in the Democratic debate co-sponsored by Fox, which was scheduled for Sept. 23 at the Fox Theater in Detroit.

A spokesman for Obama, who is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, told ABC News he would decline, saying "CNN seems to be a more appropriate host."

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

How childish is this anyway. And what if the republican candidates refused to participate in debates hosted by the other networks. If Republicans did this... the screaming would never stop. I always thought someone running for President was running to be President of ALL the United States not just those that watch certain news channels.

Ayone who considers themselves worthy of public office, much less the high office of POTUS, should have no qualms about participating in a forum that might be less than sympathetic to their viewpoints.
The fact that all of these so-called dem hopefuls don't even have that much guts makes it crystal clear that absolutely none of them are suitable.

We don't need cowards in the White House.

Barak Obama the frightened. He, Hillary Clinton and Edwards are terrified their views (or lack of) will be exposed. They are like scared rabbits and their contrived excuses are transparent. Leaders they are not.

The Dems have complained about the "two America" comment made back when, I forget who made it first. But they have bitched about it and said it was the Republicans that have made it two America's. Oh really! Well there ARE two America's sweetheart and it is because of how YOU the Democrats want to drive this Nation into the land of socialism ASAP and we are fighting it every step of the way. Dems prove their double standard at every turn in the road and oh how I wish there would be things happening that would put it right in their face what phony's they are.


OK I feel better now, ranting sure does help. hahaha

Statue Debate Enters PC World

Statue of baseball-loving family unveiled outside Hadlock Field


With snow still surrounding the stadium, the Portland Sea Dogs on Monday unveiled a 9 1/2-foot-tall bronze monument depicting a family of four heading to the ball park to enjoy America's favorite pastime.

Initially, the six-figure gift was met with a cold shoulder after Sherbell's preliminary model ran into opposition from members of the city's public art committee.

The vice chairman of the committee declared that he was not enthused with designs featuring "white folks on pedestals." Another committee member said Portland already had too many statues depicting "white, Anglo-Saxon people." The committee also didn't like the fact that the "family" wore clothing with the Portland Sea Dogs logo.

The committee voted against accepting the gift, based on photographs of a "maquette," a small, preliminary clay design of Sherbell's vision for the project. But the City Council ultimately voted unanimously to accept it.

The monument, on the sidewalk outside the city-owned ball park, consists of four statues depicting a boy wearing a baseball glove, his father with sunglasses and camera in his pockets, and a mother carrying a baby girl and a teddy bear.

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

The vice chairman of the committee declared that he was not enthused with designs featuring "white folks on pedestals."

I guess some of those people want statues that have faces with no features whatsoever. How silly for people to be like this!

Military Experience Rare Among '08 Field


The 2008 presidential campaign is long on war rhetoric and short on warriors. Despite the high-profile roles of the battle against terrorism and conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan in the presidential campaign, few of the candidates can claim military experience on their resumes.


* Delaware Sen. Joe Biden - None. Rejected for medical reasons, but would have been eligible in a national emergency.

* New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton - None.

* Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd - Served in the Army Reserve (1969-75).

* Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards - None. Draft number was never called.

* Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich - None. Was rejected for military service because a heart murmur.

* Illinois Sen. Barack Obama - None. Too young to have been drafted for the Vietnam War.

* Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico - None. Received student and medical classifications. Draft number was never called.


* Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback - None. Came of age as draft was ending.

* Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani - None. Received student and occupational deferments. Draft number was never called.

* Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee - None. Came of age as draft was ending.

* California Rep. Duncan Hunter - Served as an Army paratrooper and Ranger in Vietnam (1969-71).
Also his son, a Marine, has completed two tours of duty in Iraq.

* Arizona Sen. John McCain - Served in the Navy (1958-81); prisoner of war in Vietnam (1967-73).

* Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney - None. Received a deferment as a Mormon missionary in France, was eligible for the draft upon his return to the states but was never selected.

* Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo - None. Received student deferments. Was available for military service in 1969. Reclassified in 1970 because of stress-related anxiety and could have been called up only during a pressing national emergency.

Congress has also seen a drain in the number of members with military experience.

Only 131 members have had some form of military service, according to a Congressional Research Service report. During the 93rd Congress from 1973 to 1975, 390 veterans served.

Even if a military background isn't essential to voters, a sense that a candidate can handle the role of commander in chief remains important to most Americans.

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

I am not saying that serving in the military is a qualification for President, John Kerry is a perfect example of why that’s not true. But personally I think it helps in the times we live in now to have someone that has served in the military and have that connection to be Commander in Chief.

At least that is what I would wish for, but he would have to be a Conservative and not a Rhino.

Charlie Daniels Soapbox

Charlie Daniels photo from one of his many trips to Iraq to visit the troops.

This writing is one of Charlie's, it is from Charlie Daniels Soapbox and Message board


As far as I'm concerned Nancy Pelosi's name can be put alongside Jane Fonda as someone
who has no trouble delivering a slap to the face of every man and woman serving in the military.

To think that the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United
States would go to a terrorist state, play patty cake with a dictator who is
directly or indirectly responsible for the deaths of scores of service men
and women serving in Iraq is past disgusting, it's downright sickening.

And all this in defiance of the Commander and Chief.

She is so blinded by her determination to bring down a president that she
seems to care little about how she does it.

What possible good can a meeting between Nancy Pelosi and Assad do?

She is not a head of state, she can't make any policy or do anything except
to impress on the Syrians that the Left Wing of the United States Congress
wants to destroy George Bush and if they destroy a little bit of America in
the process so be it.

Maybe she went to bask in the glow of the support of Middle Eastern
dictators who probably think that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are the
greatest thing since sliced bread.

Some in Congress and the Senate actually want to set a date for withdrawing the troops
from Iraq. That's about the dumbest thing I've ever heard. It's like telling a burglar what time
you¹ll be leaving your house so he can come in and take every thing you own.

Ms. Pelosi thinks you can bargain with thieves and deal with terrorists. She
thinks that they can be placated and dealt with diplomatically. Boy has she
got a lesson to learn.

These people will settle for nothing less than the total destruction of
Israel and the United States of America and it makes no difference how many peace
deals are struck or how many treaties are signed. None of them are worth the paper
they¹re written on.

The only kind of diplomacy people like Assad and the mullahs in Iraq understand is
strength and Pelosi has taken a giant step in demonstrating that there is a breach in
the American armor, There are people who had rather placate and run instead of
standing and fighting.

I guess she has grandiose imaginings of being some great statesman but all
she has done is pour gasoline on the burning determination of the radical
maniacs who have no problem with slaughtering women and children or hacking
an infidel's head off.

Nancy Pelosi, history will prove that you have done a vast disservice to
America. You've given aid and comfort to the enemy. You've undermined the war
on terror and you¹ve done it all for political reasons.

I pray your children and grandchildren won't reap the results of your
selfish folly.

Pray for our troops

What do you think?

God Bless America

Four Feathers To The 15 British Sailors

This is a movie that is one of my favorites. The Four Feathers, produced in England in 1939. I loved it so much I bought the video. It was remade a few years ago, but nothing can compare to the original, it is the best.

A British army officer, Harry Faversahn, trains all day and even has time to conquer beautiful Ethne. With that Harry decides to leave the army, but good things do not last forever, so in the evening of his engagement party his regiment is call to arms to Egypt to fight against the wicked Egyptian rebels. But Harry refuses and so his former best friends send him three feathers, a sophisticated way to call him a coward. But the fourth, ah! the fourth one is the most terrible of all because it is Ethne who gives it to him.

So our hero is an outcast, nodoby loves him, nodoby cares for him. And Harry proving that after all he is a Favershan, embarks to Egypt to save his comrades. Disguised as a mute native he saves them all. Crosses the dessert, saves Durrance (who is in love with Ethne too), saves Willoughby and Burroughs from a dreadful prision and evidently gives back each of the four feathers.

This movie celebrates courage and determination. Something that the 15 Brits taken hostage will never be able to do. Oh they are trying the I am a Hero now thing, but that is just not the case. They handled this wrong from the get go imo.

This movie I mentioned came to mind not when the 15 sailors were taken hostage, but when they were released. They are just not the " Let's Roll" character that sets a person apart and each thing they are doing now confrims it even more. I don’t have a lot of sympathy or respect for the way these hostages handled themselves. It definitely is not a shining moment for the British military. It does not live up to the proud history of their military.

And to make matters worse once they were released, some were effusive in their praise for the Iranians, apologizing yet again for their intrusion! sheesh!

Let's compare something here.....

From the 15 hostages:
* We were blindfolded and subjected to interrogation

* We were told we faced seven years in prison if we did not 'confess'

* Iranians entered Iraqi waters deliberately to detain us. Fighting back was not an option

* We were 1.7 nautical miles away from Iranian waters

* We were under psychological pressure and mind games

* Faye Turney was isolated in a cell away from the rest of the crew

* All 15 of them had been blindfolded, handcuffed and pushed against a wall by their Iranian captors

* they heard the sound of guns being cocked - and believed they were about to be shot by firing squad.

They were fed three times a day and given cigarettes. They were given clothes and slept on blankets. There certainly was nothing “brutal” about their treatment. The soldiers, and one must keep in mind they were soldiers, decided to roll over and cooperate with their captors almost immediately with little evidence of overt coercion.

But wait that is not all, now there are book deals being made. The former captives are expected to make around £250,000 between them. Faye Turney, the 26-year-old seawoman, is likely to get the most profitable deal. She is said to have sold her story for £150,000 in a joint contract with a newspaper and ITV.

In contrast let's look at a different kind of Britt:

John Peters came to the world's attention in January 1991, when his bruised and battered face flashed onto television screens around the world. On the first day of the Gulf War, a British Tornado bomber crewed by John Peters and John Nichol was shot down over Iraqi territory and the two men were captured. After four days of mental and physical torture, they were forcibly shown on Iraqi television. It was John Peters' disfigured image that became a potent symbol of Saddam Hussein's ruthless aggression.

John's powerful and moving story focuses on how he coped with both the brutal physical and mental pressure inflicted on him by his captors. His dramatic and sometimes harrowing experiences reach deep into our innermost minds, showing us how we can overcome even our worst fears and nightmares. He inspires and motivates people with his own dramatic account of his experiences during Operation Desert Storm. His war was not all as he expected - it became a seven-week ordeal of torture and interrogation testing John Peters to the absolute limit and bringing him close to death.

Thinking about these things and comparing it to our troops that were taken hostage and prisoner in other wars, such as Vietnam. I will NEVER forget the brave American troops, prisoners of former wars, who endured years of captive isolation without disclosing any information, even under torture. And England has its own Greatest Generation, troops who fought a determined and superior enemy while vowing never to surrender. As Churchill observed, that was England’s finest hour. I have posted on here at TW of Brits that have been brave, I have thanked England for their support in our war against Islam. But when it comes to these 15, they reflect on their country and their military and what a pity it is they will not be able to hold their heads high knowing they did all they could, and that their whinning of their so called torture is making them look even worse.

Heroes show up when the time calls for it, these 15 did not show up. For these 15 the 4 Feather comes to mind.

Muqtada al-Sadr Calls For Attacks on US Troops

al-Sadr calls for attacks on U.S. troops


The powerful Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr ordered his militiamen on Sunday to redouble their battle to oust American forces and argued that Iraq's army and police should join him in defeating "your archenemy."

Al-Sadr commands an enormous following among Iraq's majority Shiites and has close allies in the Shiite-dominated government. The statement Sunday carried his seal and was distributed in the Shiite holy city of Najaf, where the cleric called for an enormous demonstration to mark the fourth anniversary of Baghdad's fall.

"You, the Iraqi army and police forces, don't walk alongside the occupiers, because they are your archenemy," the al-Sadr statement said.

He urged his followers not to attack fellow Iraqis but to turn all their efforts on American forces.

"God has ordered you to be patient in front of your enemy, and unify your efforts against them — not against the sons of Iraq," the statement said.

Al-Sadr apparently issued the statement in response to three days of clashes between his Mahdi Army militiamen and U.S.-backed Iraqi troops in Diwaniyah, south of Baghdad.

In Washington, Sen. Joseph Lieberman, an independent of Connecticut, said al-Sadr's words showed the American troop surge was working.

"He is not calling for a resurgence of sectarian conflict. He's striking a nationalist chord. We're going to have to watch him closely. He's not our friend. He's acknowledging that the surge is working," the senator, a strong backer of the war, said on CNN's "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer."

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

OK so now we have Mookie is openly calling for war against US forces. This POS shoul dhave been taken out when our troops hit Baghdad. My bet is they wanted to but the higher ups, not military, told them to hold back. Then of course they let him play in setting up the new government, but alas he showed he cannot do that. It just isn't in him to play nice, so can we please oh please take him out now? I mean he has declared war on our troops, doesn't this make him a legitimate target?

I realize this terrorist Al Sadr has been calling for war against the US for four years, and his militia lost thousands of terrorists fighting the US. I agree with Lieberman ( OMG did I say I agreed with a democrat) anyway the Surge is working, and Al Sadr is unable to stop it. Also I believe that he just got his latest orders from his masters in the Iranian terrorist regime to send his terrorist militia for a final battle against the US forces to undermine the surge. I wish they will come out in the open because these terrorists will be annihilated by our troops, and al-Sadr along with them would be a nice present to our troops.

Guns And TNT Found At Sunni Lawmaker's Home

Guns, TNT found at Sunni lawmaker's home


U.S. and Iraqi troops found a huge stash of weapons in a raid on the home of a Sunni lawmaker and detained at least a dozen men for questioning, officials said Sunday.

Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, spokesman for the Baghdad security plan, said the raid targeted a house of legislator Khalaf al-Ilyan — one of the three leaders of the Iraqi Accordance Front, which holds 44 seats in parliament.

"During the search, we discovered many weapons and explosive materials," al-Moussawi said at a news conference. He did not say when the raid took place, but a U.S. military statement said it occurred Tuesday.

Among the weapons found in the house were 33 Kalashnikov rifles, three pistols, one hand grenade, 4.4 pounds of TNT and 13 82-mm mortar rounds, al-Moussawi said.

The U.S. military said eight 57-mm rockets and 5,000 rounds of ammunition were also seized, along with photos of burning British soldiers and American flag-draped coffins. A detailed search revealed buried mortar rounds with new explosive timing and initiation devices.

Al-Ilyan was believed to be in Jordan at the time of the raid, and was unreachable for comment.

Al-Moussawi said troops detained 12 people for questioning. A U.S. military statement put the number of detainees at 14, and said they were al-Ilyan's personal bodyguards.
As a parliament member, al-Ilyan has immunity from prosecution. But al-Moussawi said "no one is immune when it comes to the law, and if anyone is convicted the person will be detained by security forces."

Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, a U.S. military spokesman, suggested U.S. officials would not back away from prosecuting a parliament member.

"Anytime we find someone operating outside the law, not following the rules that have been set by this government, they are subject to being detained and arrested," Caldwell said.

Last month, Iraqi security forces raided the home of another prominent Sunni lawmaker, Dhafer al-Ani, and seized four vehicles, confiscated weapons and detained seven suspects.

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

The U.S. military said eight 57-mm rockets and 5,000 rounds of ammunition were also seized, along with photos of burning British soldiers and American flag-draped coffins.

And in the homes of his legions of Minneapolis cab drivers perhaps.

Finding a guy with lots of weapons at home over there should be no surprise, but the explosives is where I would get very suspicious.

Iran Says No Airspace for Iraqi Prime Minister

Iraq PM Barred From Iran Airspace

BAGHDAD - Iran refused to allow the Iraqi prime minister to fly across its airspace as he was traveling to Tokyo, members of the delegation traveling with Nouri al-Maliki told The Associated Press early Sunday.

The delegation members said al-Maliki's plane was diverted on Saturday night to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where al-Maliki stayed in the airport for more than three hours while his government aircraft was refueled and a new flight plan was filed.

All three said the Iranians told al-Maliki's pilot that they were not informed in advance of the prime minister's need to cross Iran by air. None of the three had any information on whether that was true or an Iranian action designed to inconvenience and embarrass al-Maliki.

Al-Maliki was traveling to Japan to finalize a loan for Iraq to repair and upgrade the Iraq's energy industry. When it was announced in December, the loan was worth $707.53 million.

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

The most interesting thing to me in this AP report is Al-Maliki going to Japan for a loan. Hmmmmm interesting.

The stuff about Iran is just a pouty kid ( Iran) once again demanding it's own way.

Teachings in Mosques in USA To Be Looked Into

'al-Qaeda-level' teaching to be exposed in U.S. mosques

The founder of an organization dedicated to exposing the truth about Islam says it hopes to expose every mosque and Islamic day school in the U.S. that teaches absolute obedience to sharia law.

The Society of Americans for National Existence, or SANE, has launched the "Mapping Sharia in America Project," which is aimed at sending Arabic-speaking agents into the 2,000 mosques and Islamic day schools in the United States to learn what kind of doctrine is being preached. SANE president David Yerushalmi explains says the objective is to determine if those Islamic establishments are teaching complete obedience to sharia law.

"We're going to go into the mosques ... we're going to go into the day schools, [and] we're going to get the literature, we're going to listen to the courses, and we're going to rate them," says Yerushalmi. A rating of zero will indicate no sharia being taught; a rating of 10, says the group, will imply it is being taught at "al-Qaeda level."
"If it is an orthodox, meaning a traditional, historical Islam [being taught], it preaches sharia and it's dangerous," SANE's president continues; "and the reason is because as a matter of doctrine, you cannot tolerate a Western nation-state run with a constitutional republic [that is] not based on Islamic law. That's the fundamental principle."

Yerushalmi says while there may a few mosques and day schools that reject Sharia law, they are few and far between.

"Because every Muslim who would stand up and make a case for form is subject to a death threat, only the smallest, fewest, bravest of the Muslims have publicly rejected Islam," he contends.

According to SANE's website, the four-phased approach to the project will culminate with a central database of information that contains details about an organization (e.g., types of members, profiles on leaders, business affiliations, financial information) as well as identification of what it describes as "vulnerable U.S. targets near the location" of that particular organization. SANE hopes to have its project completed in the next eight to ten months.

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

I wonder how much luck they will have with their project. My guess is even when they do find out what we have all heard about these Mosques our leaders won't let them do anything about it. Just my gut feeling.

Radical leftist Dems seem very at home with Wahhabist Arabian exporters of jihad.

US House speaker Nancy Pelosi meets with Saudi Shura Council Chairman Saleh bin Abdullah bin Hamid in Riyadh, 05 April 2007. Rep John Murtha is costumed as the Easter Bunny to stress assurances the Speaker made to the Council. "Most Americans are not into the 'Jesus thing' that's causing all the trouble. We have some right wing religious fanatics in our government, but we have them under control now.''

Along with Pelosi was Muslim Keith Ellison a favorite of CAIR, and Waxman.

Swift Boat Vet supports Duncan Hunter

Swift Boat Vet supports Duncan Hunter

One News Now

A Naval veteran who co-founded the group "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" says he will do whatever he can to help Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-California) become the next president of the United States.

John O'Neill, a co-founder and member of the group, says in 2008 he is campaigning for another Vietnam veteran who is running for the Oval Office -- Representative Duncan Hunter.

"He is a Vietnam veteran who I can really be proud of," says O'Neill. "I'm really happy to be able to be for someone instead of just being against someone. I'm going to do everything I can to try and help him out." And so are many of the people in the Swift Boat Veterans group, he adds, clarifying that they are doing so as individuals and not on behalf of the group.
O'Neill says he recognizes that the California lawmaker is a long shot, but so were the Swift Boat vets when they organized to stop Kerry in 2004. "The long-shot causes are always the causes most worth fighting for," he says. "That's what I believe in -- so I think he has a chance; and that's who I'm for."

Boos For Hiss

Evidence of his guilt solid.

Boos For Hiss ibd

National Security: Leftist academics are determined to rehabilitate the reputation of Alger Hiss, the high-level U.S. diplomat and Soviet spy. Time may have passed, but this case was settled a long time ago.

Was Soviet communism a malevolent global force committed to conquering the world, with Kremlin spies reaching top levels in the U.S. government? Or was it "just another system" used to whip up Red hysteria and McCarthyism?

Leftists here and in Europe scoffed at Ronald Reagan when he called the Soviets an evil empire, but he was vindicated by communism's collapse. Similarly, the American left began its vendetta against Richard Nixon when in 1948 he exposed the high-ranking State Department official Hiss as a Russian agent; Nixon too was vindicated when the so-called Venona communications from the Soviet archives were opened in 1995, incriminating Hiss.

Last week, New York University's Center for the United States and the Cold War held a conference in which a Russian historian, who supposedly has scoured the Kremlin's records, found nothing implicating Hiss.

But while both Hiss' son and former Nation editor and Hiss supporter Victor Navasky both spoke, scholars who accept Hiss' clear guilt were strangely absent.

NYU's new center has also tried to reopen the Rosenbergs nuclear spying case and has glorified Americans who fought for the left in the Spanish Civil War. This is clearly one "Center" not a bit "for the United States."

The evidence against Hiss is overwhelming:

• Reformed communist spy Whittaker Chambers, who spied with Hiss, produced the "Pumpkin Papers" of State Department documents from the late 1930s that only Hiss had access to, all typed on Hiss' typewriter.

• A March 30, 1945, communique from the USSR's Washington spy chief to Moscow reports that agent "ALES" is attending the post-war Yalta conference, then traveling to Moscow. As adviser to Secretary of State Edward Stettinius, Hiss did exactly that. Former National Security Agency analyst John Schindler calls the evidence of the identity of ALES as Hiss "exceptionally solid."

• The late Democratic Sen. Pat Moynihan, who chaired a panel on government secrecy in the 1990s, said the U.S. government "had conclusive evidence of his guilt, but they never told."

Serious academics know Hiss' guilt from the evidence. Left-wing activists posing as scholars want to reopen the case for one reason: to discredit the U.S. Shame on them.

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

With the lefties, 1 + 1 will always = 0. Evidence be damned, they just feel that they are right.

For contemptable ,despicable liberal commies,America is an unjust society, and all its wars are also unjust by virtue of that fact alone. Leftists never give up trying to re-write history. They just love hating America and teaching that to their students.

Reid Says Bush Should Compromise On Iraq

Reid: Bush must learn to compromise on Iraq

RENO, Nev. (The Las Vegas Sun AP) - President Bush would be to blame, not the Democrat-controlled Congress, if he vetoes a supplemental spending bill for U.S. troops because he has rejected repeated invitations to discuss a compromise, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday.

"I'm a legislator, I know how to compromise. He doesn't. That's what he's got to learn," Reid, D-Nev., told The Associated Press.
"Compromise is not a bad word. I think it's been real hard for him to understand he can't do what he did before we had a new Congress in town," Reid said. "He's going to have to learn to deal with it."

Reid made the remarks after he met with a mixed reception at a veterans hospital where he took his plea for troop withdrawals by next fall and called the war in Iraq the "worst foreign policy blunder" in U.S. history.

"The training wheels have to come off and Iraq has got to police it's own civil war. We should not be policing a civil war," Reid told about 80 veterans, doctors and others at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Reno.
"People say if we leave Iraq it's going to be chaos," he said. "It's chaos right now. So whenever we leave, whether it is six days from now or six months from now - we know we'll be out of there in 20 months because that is when Bush is out of office - it is going to be chaos."

Two of the half-dozen or more skeptics in the audience offered pointed criticism of Reid, including one who said the senator's "irresponsible statements" are undermining U.S. troops.

"You are using this as a political football. It's not acceptable," said John Edwards, a veteran and member of a local chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, whose national organization has called for Congress to approve funding for the Iraq war without what it called "an arbitrary withdrawal timeline."
Reid said he agrees the nation must make sure U.S. troops have "not died in vain in Iraq."
"Conversely, we have to tell it how it is. We can't paint a picture that doesn't exist," he said.
"Before we invaded, there was not a single terrorist in Iraq. I recognize Saddam Hussein was an evil man and I'm glad he's gone. But invading Iraq did not help the situation. It made it worse."

Reid said earlier he will propose legislation to cut off funds for combat operations, and provide money for only three missions: targeted counterterrorism operations, training and equipping the Iraqi security forces, and to provide security for U.S. personnel and infrastructure.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates criticized the strategy Wednesday, saying such limits could pull troops from Baghdad neighborhoods, which have been the focus of the latest military buildup in Iraq.
"One real possibility is, if we abandon some of these areas and withdraw into the countryside or whatever to do these targeted missions, that you could have a fairly significant ethnic cleansing inside Baghdad or in Iraq more broadly," Gates said.
Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., is among those who argue Congress has no business "micromanaging this war."
"Our troops are in Iraq fighting an enemy that wants to destroy our way of life, and setting a date for withdrawal would undermine our commanders," he said last week. "Victory is our only option."

Reid spoke and answered questions for about an hour and toured the VA facility.

"I say let's get out of there. Let's understand this war can only be won politically, diplomatically and economically."

Reid said Democrats continue to try to work with the president to avoid a second veto he has promised if another version of a supplemental spending bill has a timetable for withdrawing troops.

"If he does that, he's cutting off the funds to troops. We're not cutting off the funds to troops," Reid said.
"The president is a partner with us on what we do in Iraq whether he wants to be or not. We need to work with him and he needs to work with us."

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

Sen. Reid is despicable and a liar. The “no terrorists in Iraq before our attacks” canard has been disproved many times over. And President Bush needs no lessons in compromise from him. You don’t compromise on war. You don’t compromise on support for our troops. You don’t compromise with terrorists.

The President should occupy the halls of congress with a Battalion of Marines and throw each and every one of these clueless wonders in prison. It is his sworn duty to protect us "against all enemies, foreign and domestic". This bunch of traitorous bastards have gone way over too far in time of war. Arrest them, shoot them, do something for all our sakes.

It’s a hard time for anyone who loves and believes in this country and wants to protect it. The Harry and Nancy show feel powerful, and we feel powerless. This is arrogant, disgraceful, disgusting behavior at its core!!!! It’s a hard and scary time.

No way. Next case!

'American Taliban' Lindh asks Bush to reduce 20-year prison term

San Francisco (AP) -- The lawyer and parents of John Walker Lindh, the American-born Taliban soldier serving 20 years in prison after his capture in Afghanistan, called on President Bush on Wednesday to commute his sentence and set him free.

The renewed call to shorten the sentence was based on the relatively light term Australian David Hicks received Saturday after pleading guilty to supporting terrorism. Hicks, who had been imprisoned for five years at Guantanamo Bay and acknowledged aiding al-Qaida during the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan, was given a nine month sentence.

"In the atmosphere of the time, the best John could get was a plea bargain and a 20-year sentence," said Lindh's father Frank Lindh. "We love our son very much, he was wrongly accused when he was found in Afghanistan."

John Walker Lindh, 26, a Marin County native, was captured in Afghanistan in November 2001 by American forces sent to topple the Taliban after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He was charged with conspiring to kill Americans and support terrorists but pleaded guilty in 2002 to lesser offenses, including carrying weapons against U.S. forces.

Attorney James Brosnahan brokered the plea deal and said it was the best he could do amid the political climate immediately after Sept. 11.

Lindh had converted to Islam and went to Afghanistan to fight for the Taliban against the Northern Alliance, Brosnahan said.

"It is a question of proportionality, it is a question of fairness and it is a question of the religious experience John Walker Lindh had and it was not in any way directed at the United States," Brosnahan said at a press conference Wednesday.

The White House referred telephone calls to the Justice Department, which declined to comment because it had not received the petition, said spokesman Dean Boyd.

Neither the president nor the department have acted on two previous commutation requests.

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

OK, so instead of John Walker Lindh shall serve 20 years imprisonment for his joining terrorists in battle against American forces, how about............You're in for the full 20, you effing traitor! And your hippie parents can burn in hell along with you.

Breathes there the man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
'This is my own, my native land!'
Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd
As home his footsteps he hath turn'd
From wandering on a foreign strand?
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour'd, and unsung."
Sir Walter Scott.

U.S. Socialist Party The Democrats Want To Change Wording of the War

House Democrats Offer Plan to Ban Use of 'Global War on Terror'
Fox News

House Minority Leader John Boehner blasted a Democrat-backed plan on Wednesday to ban the use of "global War on Terror" and "long war" in the 2008 defense budget bill.

A memo sent to Democratic staffers on the House Armed Services Committee instructed the aides not to use the specific phrases, the Military Times newspaper reported.

Erin Conaton, the committee's staff director, sent out the 15-page memo titled "Style Guide for Defense Authorization Report."
"When referencing military operations throughout the world, please be as specific as possible. Please avoid using colloquialisms such as, 'the war on terrorism, or the 'Long War' Please do not use the term 'global war on terrorism,' " according to the memo.

Late Wednesday afternoon, a source told FOX News that the panel had sent out a revised version making it clear that there was “no political intent behind” the wording.

The section was rewritten and there is a new version of the style guide, a copy of which has not yet been released.

Boehner accused Democrats of launching an "absurd effort to deny the fact that America is battling terrorism on a global scale," according to a statement released Wednesday by his office.
"How do Democrats expect America to fight and win a war they deny is even taking place?" Boehner said.

Democratic leaders in the House Armed Services Committee don't like the phrases and want defense policy to be more specific, according to the report.

The memo, sent out on March 27, calls for specific references to specific operations instead of phrases used by the Bush administration.

President Bush began using the "global War on Terror" phrase after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
The memo offers replacement phrases such as "war in Iraq," "war in Afghanistan," "operations in the Horn of Africa" or "ongoing operations throughout the world."

Democratic staffers revised the memo to ensure that there "was no misunderstanding or confusion ... it was never intended to be anything other than (to get) the highest degree of specificity and accuracy" for the legislation.

Boehner said Democrats have a "dismal" national security record with efforts to push through non-binding resolutions against President Bush's Iraq plan, adding pork-barrel spending in unrelated legislation and leaving the nation's capital for a recess without passing legislation backed by the president with funding for U.S. troops.

"It's no wonder Democrats don't like the phrases 'global War on Terror,' they have completely failed to take the threat of global terrorism seriously," Boehner said.

Republicans weren't consulted about the changes, said Josh Holly, a spokesman for Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., ranking member of the committee.

Sheeesh....the DEMS are feeling they want to micro-manage what Pres. Bush calls things. I wonder if they will say they don’t like the word “victory” or “winning” or “freedom” or “dictator” or “jihadists” or “terrorists” or “enemy”. This is really outrageous. When the president is up against people who are going to now quibble with what we call the war, we’re really in trouble in DC !

Oh, and I hope the president shoves this right back in the democrat’s faces and when they return from their little vacation I hope he goes on television every single day to remind people about the global war on terror and how the Democraps have abandoned our beloved troops.

Do Democrats consider themselves Americans? I don’t think they even recognize America as anything more than a tool to mooch off of and suck dry in their lust for power and control. Marxists have no fidelity.

It was the Carter Administration that ordered the shift from illegal alien to undocumented worker. It’s an old liberal tradition...just call a thing something else and whoosh, problem solved.

OK so I think the Demo socialists should be told, "......OK then call it , The War Against Islam, and if they don't like it Dems you can put your opinon where the sun does not shine.

Character Shows Up In Many Places

A little something for you to see from Rush Limbaugh, I thought this was good. ~ Wild Thing

Rush on the hostages yesterday:

RUSH: Well, Winston Churchill is having a scotch in his grave right now asking the question: "How did 15 British sailors and Marines give up without firing a shot?" Churchill probably cannot believe this. You know, they pretty mothballed their navy. Great Britain, I'll tell you, it's gone PC in ways you wouldn't believe. If you people haven't heard, this I want you to sit down. This is from the UK Daily Mail: "Schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim pupils," according to a government study. The study "found that some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity of the Holocaust for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial. There is also resistance to tackling the Eleventh Century crusades where Christians fought Muslim armies for control of Jerusalem because lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques. The findings have prompted claims that some schools are using histories as a vehicle for promoting political correctness."

Political correctness? It's worse than that! The Brits are not teaching the Holocaust because there are Muslim students in there who are Holocaust deniers, and they don't want them to be offended! They're worried that they're going to start blowing up the schools or something, I guess. (interruption) Yes, there is a "consensus" on the Holocaust, but the Brits are willing to say, "To hell with consensus." The Holocaust is not "consensus." It's fact. Look, you wonder what's happened to the Brits? It's political correctness is running amok, and "conflict resolution."

Does anybody think that 15 United States Marines would just sit there and allow themselves to be taken when they had not invaded Iranian waters and then in two days, start apologizing on Iranian TV? Do you think 15 United States Marines would do this?


TEHRAN, Iran - Fifteen British sailors and marines released by Iran arrived at Tehran’s airport early Thursday and were expected to board a commercial flight to London, according to an Associated Press reporter at the scene.

The 15, whose release from nearly two weeks in Iranian captivity was announced Wednesday by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, arrived in a convoy of sedans that drove directly to the presidential VIP section of the airport, the reporter said.

The convoy was escorted by several cars belonging to the elite Revolutionary Guards.

The British crew was expected to board a British Airways flight scheduled to leave the Mehrabad International Airport at 8 a.m. local time (12:30 a.m. EDT).

Wild Thing's comment......

Just sayin! Cause I love OUR USA troops!

Regarding the 15 Brits, I am glad they are going to be released. I am glad they are alive and well.

Iraqi Security Forces, Cavalry Discover Extremist Training Camp

Multi-National Division - North PAO

ZAGANIYAH, Iraq - Iraqi security forces from the 5th Iraqi Army Division, working with coalition forces, discovered a terrorist training camp in Zaganiyah, Iraq, while conducting clearing operations in the Diyala River Valley palm groves Thursday.

Soldiers from 2nd Brigade, 5th IA and Company B, 5th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment, attached to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, discovered a fortified underground bunker with three exit points, four prepared fighting positions and a training camp building.

While clearing the area, the Soldiers unearthed five weapons caches consisting of more than 100 rocket-propelled grenade rounds, more than five RPG launchers, approximately 70 mortar rounds, bomb-making materials, homemade explosives and terrorist planning and training materials.

“The terrorists from Al Qaeda have no place to hide. Their safe havens do not exist and their training camps are being destroyed,” said Col. David W. Sutherland, 3-1 Cav. commander. “We will continue to attack these organizations and bring the perpetrators of violence to justice in order to secure the population.
“The people in Diyala are disgusted and disillusioned by the fact the terrorists have nothing to offer but destruction through actions like this and they are gaining confidence in their ISF,” he added

Austin Girl Scouts Send Morale-building Cookies

Pfc. Karla Hiquiana (left), Specialist Alex Teesdale (center) and Chaplain (Capt.) Ben Clark, read messages on boxes of Girl Scout cookies sent by troops from the greater Austin, Texas, area. The three, from Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 4th Battalion, 227th Aviation Regiment, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, separated 1,100 boxes of the cookies that would be distributed to the battalion’s Soldiers. Each Soldier in the battalion got two boxes and extras were handed out to other Soldiers in the 1st ACB.

Story by Sgt. 1st Class Rick Emert

By Sgt. 1st Class Rick Emert
1st ACB, 1st Cav. Div. Public Affairs

TAJI, Iraq – It’s a yearly tradition that 4th Battalion, 227th Aviation Regiment, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade Soldiers would have missed out on – Girl Scout cookie season.

Instead, Girl Scout troops from the greater Austin, Texas, area sent about 650 pounds of the treats, that many crave this time of year, to the Soldiers from 4-227th stationed at Taji, Iraq.

The battalion has received about 1,100 boxes of the treats with more on the way, according to Chaplain (Capt.) Ben Clark, the chaplain for 4-227th.

“It was an outstanding effort for them to collect and put a message on all of these boxes of cookies,” Clark said. “I can picture in my mind the effort that the person who put this all together had to put forth.”

Clark and his chaplain assistants, Spc. Alex Teesdale and Pfc. Karla Hiquiana – both from Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 4-227th – separated the cookies into boxes to go to each of the battalion’s companies. Each Soldier in the battalion gets two boxes, and the excess will be handed out to other Soldiers from the 1st ACB at such events as the Bunker 182 group meeting, which takes place every Sunday at Camp Taji.

Most Soldiers have picked up their boxes, and were not so patient about getting their Girl Scout cookie fix.

“I had Soldiers coming up to me for a week asking: ‘When are we going to get those Girl Scout cookies?’” Teesdale said.
“People in my office have been looking forward to getting them,” said Spc. Misha Argall, HHC, 4-227th. “I thought it was great they sent these; it’s not something you would associate with a deployment. It’s nice to know that people at home are still thinking about us.”

Clark said he has received other donations, such as items to set up a coffee bar in his building, but not on a scale like this.

“Before we knew what was in them, we saw all these boxes for the chaplain, and I thought, wow, his family really does love him,” Hiquiana said.

Clark is planning to send flags that will be flown over Iraq by the 1st ACB’s helicopters to show his gratitude to the Texas-based Girl Scouts.

The shipment of cookies coincided with a playful request from the1st ACB commander Col. Dan Shanahan for Girl Scout cookies to be sent to his Soldiers during a live town hall meeting that he attended via the Digital Video Imagery Distribution System on Feb. 27. Clark said the troops had been preparing the cookies for shipment before Shanahan’s request. But the brigade soon found itself inundated with cookies – not necessarily a bad thing.

“Who doesn’t love Girl Scout cookies?” Teesdale said.
“And, who doesn’t have a favorite Girl Scout cookie?” added Clark.

Certainly not Clark (Peanut Butter Patties), Hiquiana (Thin Mints), Teesdale (Thin Mints) or Argall (Caramel delights).

'Good luck' Sent To Soldiers In Iraq

Ryan Rahe, with mom Jayne, holds the flag that soldiers sent him after he sent his medals to them for good luck. (DARYL SULLIVAN / THE DAILY TIMES)

MARYVILLE, Tenn. — A generous donation of "good luck" sent to soldiers in Iraq was returned to a Blount County man after the recipients' safe return home.

Ryan Rahe, an active participant in Special Olympics since middle school, has won numerous medals in several sports, especially bowling and swimming. The 25-year-old man has shared his medals with soldiers several times, with his most recent gifts going to soldiers in the Virginia Army National Guard in Iraq.

"He sent the medals and said they were for good luck, and thank you for fighting for our country," said Ryan's mother, Jayne Rahe.
"I put a little note in there and said since Ryan is not going to be able to protect our country, I really appreciated the work they were doing for that."

Jayne said earlier recipients had acknowledged Ryan's gifts, but this time, the young man received a special surprise. The soldiers sent him a package containing an American flag that had accompanied the crew of UH-60L Black Hawk helicopter 26849 on a combat sortie in Iraq, a certificate of appreciation of Ryan's continued friendship and support, and a photograph of the men holding the flag and Ryan's medals — which had accompanied them on this mission — in front of their helicopter.

'Courage' remembered

The letter written by Chief Warrant Officer 2 Anthony W. Grillett on Jan. 10 thanked Ryan for sending the medals.

"I and the Battalion can never thank you enough for sending us your medals," Grillett wrote. "They have brought us luck and good fortune, and now as we prepare to deploy home we send them back to you with our eternal gratitude.

"That you would send us something so precious is a reflection of your character. As you called us heroes; to me you are the hero. For I believe it is not who you are, or what you are that makes you a hero, it is the ability to give all especially when it is never asked.

"Your courage to face the challenges required earning those medals and then so freely send them to us here in Iraq will forever make you a hero to me. I will never be able to truly express in words how honored I was when I read the letter from your Mother. It truly humbles me and shows me that what I fight for in our country will always be worth the small sacrifices asked of me. Thank you again."

The letter was signed, "Your friend always."

Jayne Rahe said the idea of sending support to the soldiers in harm's way came about when she and Ryan were talking about news coverage of the war in Iraq. Jayne visited a online and discovered how she and Ryan could let the men and women in Iraq know their efforts are appreciated.

Ryan, named 2006 Special Olympics Athlete of the Year for the Blount County Sports Hall of Fame, said he felt good when he received the box from the soldiers. He said if he could talk with them face to face, he would say, "Thank you."

The Rahes plan to continue sending care packages to soldiers, including the medals.

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

I love stories that show appreciation of our troops and Veterans. I think this one was special.

When we lived in California, the stuntmen's organization my husband is with worked with the Special Olympics for several years. It was something that all the guys say even today, was a time that touched their hearts.

The "Slo-Bleed" That Democrats Promised

April 2, 2007 Washington D.C. -­ U.S. Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) announced today that they are introducing legislation that will effectively end the current military mission in Iraq and begin the redeployment of U.S. forces.

The bill requires the President to begin safely redeploying U.S. troops from Iraq 120 days from enactment, as required by the emergency supplemental spending bill the Senate passed last week. The bill ends funding for the war, with three narrow exceptions, effective March 31, 2008.

“I am pleased to cosponsor Senator Feingold’s important legislation,” Reid said.
“I believe it is consistent with the language included in the supplemental appropriations bill passed by a bipartisan majority of the Senate.
If the President vetoes the supplemental appropriations bill and continues to resist changing course in Iraq, I will work to ensure this legislation receives a vote in the Senate in the next work period.”
“I am delighted to be working with the Majority Leader to bring our involvement in the Iraq war to an end,” Feingold said.
“Congress has a responsibility to end a war that is opposed by the American people and is undermining our national security. By ending funding for the President’s failed Iraq policy, our bill requires the President to safely redeploy our troops from Iraq.”

The language of the legislation reads:

(a) Transition of Mission - The President shall promptly transition the mission of United States forces in Iraq to the limited purposes set forth in subsection (d).

(b) Commencement of Safe, Phased Redeployment from Iraq - The President shall commence the safe, phased redeployment of United States forces from Iraq that are not essential to the purposes set forth in subsection (d). Such redeployment shall begin not later than 120 days after the date of the enactment of this Act.

(c) Prohibition on Use of Funds - No funds appropriated or otherwise made available under any provision of law may be obligated or expended to continue the deployment in Iraq of members of the United States Armed Forces after March 31, 2008.

(d) Exception for Limited Purposes -

The prohibition under subsection (c) shall not apply to the obligation or expenditure of funds for the limited purposes as follows:

(1) To conduct targeted operations, limited in duration and scope, against members of al Qaeda and other international terrorist organizations.

(2) To provide security for United States infrastructure and personnel.

(3) To train and equip Iraqi security services.

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

Senate Democrats, McCain's buddy Feingold and Reid pressing for an IMMEDIDATE SURRENDER and cutoff of funds now. They want the war ENDED before the 2008 election, no matter HOW MANY WILL DIE because of it.

Again, I am forced to ask: WILL NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON??

Those traitors are giving orders to the President to do what they want thinking that they are the Commander in Chief. The President is going to veto every treasonous and defeatist bill and he will get his funding for the troops without any condition. If it won't stop them can Bush do an Executive order to cancel the treachery of the democraps?

Mrs. Chamberlain


Axis Of Evil: Speaker Nancy Pelosi leads another delegation of Democratic supplicants to talk to Syrian Baathist thug Bashar Assad. If she needs reasons why talking to tyrants doesn't work, we can give her 15.

In December, when Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., took the recommendations of James Baker's Iraq Study Group seriously and was granted an audience with the Syrian dictator, we predicted he'd be "the first of many appeasers to come."

Pelosi, fresh from passing legislation setting a timetable for our surrender in Iraq, is leading a delegation to the Middle East to talk to the likes of Assad, her office says, as "recommended by the Iraq Study Group . . . to discuss a wide variety of security issues . . . with representatives of governments in the region, including Syria."

The delegation includes Minnesota freshman Keith Ellison, California Reps. Tom Lantos and Henry Waxman, and others. Ellison is the first Muslim congressman and will no doubt advise Pelosi to avoid stereotyping Assad, no matter that he is still on the list of state sponsors of terror.

The group's first stop was in Israel, ground zero in Iran's plan to build a nuclear weapon and place it atop one of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Shahab missiles to wipe the Jewish state off the map. Ellison can explain how Mahoud believes this will usher the return of the 12th Imam.

We've seen how well Iran plays with others, capturing 15 British sailors in what in earlier times would have been considered an act of war. It is killing U.S. troops with advanced armor-piercing IEDs it supplies Iraqi jihadists. It plays host to Muqtada al-Sadr, whose Mahdi army has tried to destabilize Iraq's infant democracy.

Still, Pelosi insists we follow the ISG's advice. Come, let us reason together. But we've seen Iran's response to the ISG and to the international community that has rightly sanctioned Tehran for building weapons of mass destruction.

Syria and Iran were partners in crime in Hezbollah's unprovoked attack on Israel and used the democracy of Lebanon as a human shield as it helped provide weapons that rained death and destruction on civilians in Israeli cities and towns. It acted as a conduit for arms flowing to Hezbollah from Iran used in Hezbollah's attacks.

Syria has been linked to the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri and a host of other anti-Syrian political leaders as it works to destabilize the country it occupied for over two decades. Pelosi won't be able to talk to Lebanon's former industry minister, Pierre Gemayal. He was assassinated as part of Syria's and Hezbollah's plan to destabilize Lebanon.

The Speaker may be third in line for president, but she is not commander-in-chief. That responsibility, as well as the conduct of U.S. foreign policy, was wisely placed in the hands of the occupant of the White House long ago, not in the hands of a committee of 435.

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino pointed out Syria is a country "that is trying to disrupt the . . . government in Lebanon and one that is allowing foreign fighters to flow into Iraq from its borders." Pelosi, she added, "should take a step back and think about the message that it sends" to our enemies.

That message is "we surrender."

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

Utterly disgusting! She’s a traitor....and really should be treated as such.

The fact that we have no diplomatic relations with Syria show how she is stepping outside the box!! The administration asked her not to go. She didn't even ask for permission. She didn't call up and say, "What would you think of me going over there on a fact-finding trip?" So there she is in Syria. She defies her own government while we are at war, and she tells the president to calm down?

Pelosi goes to bed at night and dreams up ways to destroy the USA

Some Things The U.S. and Our Allies Are Doing in Iraq

Here is some positive news about what the U.S. and our allies are doing in

Did you know that 47 countries have reestablished their embassies in Iraq?

Did you know that the Iraqi government currently employs 1.2 million Iraqi people?

Did you know that 3100 schools are or have been constructed/renovated?

Did you know that Iraq's higher educational structure consists of 20 Universities, 46 Institutes or Colleges and 4 Research Centers, all currently operating?

Did you know that 25 Iraq students departed for the United States in January 2005, for the re-established Fulbright program?

Did you know that the Iraqi Navy is op erational with 5 one-hundred foot patrol craft, 34 smaller vessels and a naval infantry regiment?

Did you know that Iraq's Air Force consists of three operational squadrons, which includes 9 reconnaissance and 3 US C-130 transport aircraft (under Iraqi operational control) which operate day and night, and will soon add 16 UH-1 helicopters and 4 Bell Jet Rangers?

Did you know that Iraq has a counter-terrorist unit and a Commando Battalion?

Did you know that the Iraqi Police Service has over 55,000 fully trained and equipped police officers?

Did you know that there are 5 Police Academies in Iraq that produce over 3,500 new officers each 8 weeks?

Did you know there are more than 1,100 building projects going on in Iraq which include 364 schools, 67 public clinics, 15 hospitals, 83 railroad stations, 22 oil facilities, 93 water facilities and 69 electrical facilities.

Did y ou know that 96% of Iraqi children under the age of 5 have received the first 2 series of polio vaccinations?

Did you know that the Baghdad Stock Exchange opened in June of 2004?

Did you know that 2 candidates in the Iraqi presidential election had a televised debate recently?




Instead of reflecting our love for our country, we get photos of flag burning incidents at Abu Ghraib and people throwing snowballs at the presiden tial motorcades.

Tragically, the lack of accentuating the positive in Iraq serves two purposes:

1) it is intended to undermine the world's perception of the United States thus minimizing consequent support

2) it is intended to discourage American citizens.

Above facts are verifiable on the Department of Defense web site.

Congress Will Fund Troops ~ War Must End By 2008

Senate takes strongest action yet against Pres. Bush, war


In an aggressive move to counter President Bush’s war plans, the U.S. Senate signed off on a bill Thursday that provides $123 billion to pay for war costs in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The bill, passed 51-47 in the newly Democrat-controlled Senate, orders Bush to begin withdrawing troops within 120 days of the bill being passed.

Most Republicans rejected the bill, refusing to support a bill that imposes a forced troop withdrawal. Bush held a pep rally with members of the Republican Party to help raise support for his plans to continue the war shortly before the bill was passed.

Bush has made it clear that any bill proposed with a timetable will not be passed.

“We stand united in saying loud and clear that when we’ve got a troop in harm’s way, we expect that troop to be fully funded and [when] we’ve got commanders on the ground making tough decisions on the ground, we expect there to be no strings on our commanders,” Bush told the Associated Press.
UW-Madison political science professor David Canon said, “This is the strongest statement made so far about ending the war sooner than later.”
In spite of Bush’s rejection of the bill, Canon said, “Congress has the support of the public and the public does not support the war. An unpopular war can only last so long before it has to end.”

There was a lack of enthusiasm for the bill from the Wisconsin Campus Anti-war Network.

“Proposing a timetable will not be effective because it allows the war to continue. This bill proves that Congress cannot be left to end the war; it’s up to the anti-war movement,” said UW-Madison senior and Wisconsin Anti-war Network member Chris Dols.

The proposed bill was delivered less than four months after Bush’s new plan for continuing the war in Iraq, regardless of the pressures to withdraw from a majority of Americans, according to Canon.

U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., has been open about his disagreement with the Bush administration’s plan since the beginning of the Iraq war four years ago.

With the signing of the bill, “today marks an important step toward ending the war in Iraq,” Feingold said in a statement.
“For the first time, the U.S. Senate will pass binding legislation requiring the President to begin withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq. While this is long overdue, it is a big step in the right direction and it brings us closer to ending our involvement in this disastrous war,” he said.

UK Teachers Drop the Holocaust to Avoid Offending Muslims

Teachers drop the Holocaust to avoid offending Muslims

Schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim pupils, a Governmentbacked study has revealed.

It found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial.

There is also resistance to tackling the 11th century Crusades - where Christians fought Muslim armies for control of Jerusalem - because lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.

The findings have prompted claims that some schools are using history 'as a vehicle for promoting political correctness'.

The study, funded by the Department for Education and Skills, looked into 'emotive and controversial' history teaching in primary and secondary schools.

It found some teachers are dropping courses covering the Holocaust at the earliest opportunity over fears Muslim pupils might express anti-Semitic and anti-Israel reactions in class.

The researchers gave the example of a secondary school in an unnamed northern city, which dropped the Holocaust as a subject for GCSE coursework.

The report said teachers feared confronting 'anti-Semitic sentiment and Holocaust denial among some Muslim pupils'.

It added: "In another department, the Holocaust was taught despite anti-Semitic sentiment among some pupils.

"But the same department deliberately avoided teaching the Crusades at Key Stage 3 (11- to 14-year-olds) because their balanced treatment of the topic would have challenged what was taught in some local mosques."
A third school found itself 'strongly challenged by some Christian parents for their treatment of the Arab-Israeli conflict-and the history of the state of Israel that did not accord with the teachings of their denomination'.
The report concluded: "In particular settings, teachers of history are unwilling to challenge highly contentious or charged versions of history in which pupils are steeped at home, in their community or in a place of worship."

But Chris McGovern, history education adviser to the former Tory government, said:

"History is not a vehicle for promoting political correctness. Children must have access to knowledge of these controversial subjects, whether palatable or unpalatable."

The researchers also warned that a lack of subject knowledge among teachers - particularly at primary level - was leading to history being taught in a 'shallow way leading to routine and superficial learning'.

Lessons in difficult topics were too often 'bland, simplistic and unproblematic' and bored pupils.

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

How awful, how horrible it is to see this kind of thing going on. Now we have schools that will not teach something just because someone MIGHT be offended. TUFF! No longer doe the truth matter, no longer does history have meaning to people like this. It makes me sick! I swear the world has turned upside down.

As the quote we all know says....those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Churchill would be disgusted. So many modern brits and modern British public officials would have fit in well with Chamberlain and his fellow appeasers. Stick a fork in the UK, its done and in 100 years will be another Islamic hellhole.

Islamists 'fundraising and training' In Britain

Islamists 'fundraising and training' in Britain
Sydney Herald

Islamist extremists are highly active in radicalising and training Muslim men in Britain as well as raising funds and supporting fellow extremists overseas.

Britain's Sunday Telegraph, citing a secret intelligence document, said al-Qaeda sympathisers are sending extremists in Pakistan hundreds of thousands of pounds in cash to fund attacks against Western democracies.

"Security Service and police investigations continue to detect high levels of operational activity by UK-based Islamist extremist networks," according to the document cited by the newspaper.

"Extremists are engaged in fundraising, radicalisation, and training and in providing support to fellow extremists overseas," it said.

"The purpose of a proportion of this clandestine activity is unclear. The high levels of activity are consistent with the judgment that an attack in the UK is highly likely," it added.

The newspaper quoted government sources as saying that Britain is facing a home-grown threat of about 30 plots from 200 separate networks involving about 1,600 suspects.

"The threat facing the UK is very, very high and MI5 (domestic intelligence) and other covert agencies involved in the security of this country are working flat-out. There is no spare capacity in the system," a security source told the newspaper.

It said the secret document was distributed to the Counter Terrorist Command (SO15), the Cabinet Office and the Home Office.

It reveals that government buildings, Ministry of Defence establishments and tourist sites like the London Eye, the world's tallest observation wheel, on the River Thames, are at "severe" risk of terrorist attacks, it added.

Prayer leaders and other Muslim "opinion formers" will be given lessons in civil leadership under a new multi-million-pound government plan to fight extremism in Britain, the newspaper added.

Iran's seizure of 15 British sailors and the UK's lame response will certainly embolden the homegrown Jihadists. Nothing succeeds like success.

The London Underground bombings....52 Britains died at the hands of homegrown Islamist terrorists. Never forget for them has become, who cares.
