Much Ado About Muslims

A good topic for discussion. Freedom of religion... versus... Well, freedom of religion. A story in the news was linked to and ranted about on Blackfive.
Here is also a GREAT read which includes plenty of good links. If you would like to learn about how sick and twisted the Muslim religion can be... Read this. I challenge anyone to find the same atrocities in another religion. I don't care what it is.

This is such a slippery slope. When will it end?

Letter From An Infantryman

Things that I am tired of in this war:

What a great way to start out a letter, in my opinion. I found this on Blackfive and I must say he sounds alot like I did when I was there.

Go read the post. It's a wonderful letter from a soldier who "has a grip on things".

Great Letter From a Veteran:

In response to Mr. Sullivan's civilian comments the other day, blogger COUNTERCOLUMN wrote this letter to him:

Mr. Sullivan,

Thought you might be interested in another story about those pesky, crazy civilians and the handiwork wrought by their mortars:

I've been on the receiving end of dozens of those civilian mortar attacks. They didn't seem all that civilian to me at the time.

Glad we have people like you around to set me straight, though.

I couldn't have said it better myself Jason. Well done.


Scary Stuff:

I'm not sure how my dad found this article, but he emailed to me.

"A growing number of young Muslims in Britain are inspired by political Islam and in favour of Sharia law, Islamic dress for women and faith schools, according to a study."

As far as I'm concerned, this is something to pay attention to. I realize that radical muslims are leading the war against the west. It seems that most of us have forgotten that immediately after the attacks of September 11th, Bin Laden said to the world that: "There are two types of terror, good and bad. What we are practising is good terror. We will not stop killing them and whoever supports them."

So they want to "kill us all". And now 13% of youths in Britain "admire organisations like Al-Qaeda that are prepared to fight the West".

I hope I'm not the only one who's worried.


Quick History Lesson:

I laughed my ass off when I read this:

Quick History Lesson:

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters & gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of Beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups: Liberals and Conservatives.

Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early human were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement. Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as "Girliemen".

Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy and group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.

Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting revolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, Marines, and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get "More For Nothing".

This ends today's lesson in world history.

Quick Shout Out:

Ace of Spades:

If you don't read it, you should.

Ace of Spades HQ has some great posts... And the comments are downright hilarious.

Speaking of which...Who likes Mountain Lions?

We're Not Losers:

Right. We're NOT Losers... It's the War We Hate:

Jonah Goldberg wrote this article for the NRO in early December. I was just reading it again and realized how vital this information really is:

"The number of U.S. military deaths in Iraq remains below one percent of our WWII losses."

So why is it sooo important to point out that we've "drug this quagmire" out for 1,347 days?

Jonah answers:

"When people invoke the WWII analogy, what they really mean is that we've been in Iraq too long. Fair enough. But it's not clear that the chorus of tsk-tskers appreciate the implications of their complaint."

True. And as he points out:

" don't hear many people complaining that we still have troops in Japan and Germany more than 20,000 days later."

Hmmm... Something to think about, isn't it?

SOTU? Yeah... STFU:

The blogsphere has said it right... And the consensus is the same everywhere. This was a bunch of crap. We know it. (I'm Sure) They know it. So why doesn't anything get done?
My question is this: If the President's plan is such crap, then why don't YOU Nancy/Webb, come up with a better one?
After all, you're educated and sooo much better than us "idiots".

Where's the friggin plan from the Dem's? That's all I wanna know.

The Second Holocaust?

A great article written by Benny Morris for the Jerusalem Post over at Pajamas Media.

He does a great job looking into the future of the Middle East. Go Read It!


Just wanted to Rehash some quotes about the war:

Here are some gems from Democratic leaders concerning the war. I love to play Monday morning quarterback, but only when someone deserves it. Such as... let's say... Hypocrites.

It seems to me that these people used to be intelligent. What happened?

Either way, Enjoy:

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998.

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998.

"Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998.

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998.

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.

"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999.

"There is no doubt that . Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, Dec, 5, 2001.

"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them."
Sen. Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept. 19, 2002.

"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seing and developing weapons of mass destruction."
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002.

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002.

"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002.

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years . We also should remember we have alway s underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
Sen. Jay Rockerfeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002,

"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do."
Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002.

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction. "[W]ithout question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation. And now he has continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real ...
Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003.

Also, check this out:

Newly released video from the daring rescue of the fallen Royal Marine in Afghanistan last week. These guys rode on the Outside of Apaches. For those of you who haven't seen an apache... You are NOT supposed to ride on those wings... especially at speeds of well over 100mph. These guys have balls the size of grapefruits. Well done boys.

Now go watch this video!


Everyone needs to check this out:

Snopes has yet to declare this either true, or false. I'm still not sure of the validity, but we'll see.

HERE is the link to a USAF Pararescue blog where I found THIS post which is quite appalling.

Here is an simple request to a "mat company".

To Whom it may concern:

Do you ship to APO addresses? I'm in the 1st Cavalry Division stationed in Iraq and we are trying to order some mats but we are looking for who ships to APO first.
SGT Hess

Here is the hate filled response:

Subject: Re: Feedback: from
SGT Hess,
We do not ship to APO addresses, and even if we did, we would NEVER ship to Iraq. If you were sensible, you and your troops would pull out of Iraq.

I would like anyone who sees this to pass along this information:

Media Bias... Once Again:

If anyone wants information on Media Bias, The Laughing Wolf has some very good insight over at Blackfive. Read the comments section too, there are some good points. I commented my feelings already, so I'll spare you here... You can just read them there.

This is definitely a must read:

John Krenson writes a gem titled"The speech I'd like to hear" over at One Hand Clapping. It's long, but I suggest reading the entire thing. He really puts America's problems on the forefront. For the most part I agree with what he has to say and I too hope a leader steps up to lead America to victory once more. We've got the troops, we've got the equipment, and we've got the attitude. Now we need the authorization to bust heads. Defeat is not a word we're used to, but without adequate leadership in the fight against terrorism, I'm afraid this is one fight we might not win.

A favorite quote of mine: "There perchance may come a time when a good man must spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats."

Let's hope the "sleeping giant" truly awakens.


Must read... Spread the word.

Blackfive has brought this to my attention: The Mudville Gazette has caught a group of "socialists" in their Anti-War lies. Go check it out HERE... and spread the word.

Great example of politics...

You GOTTA read this... It's classic.

* A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like
so many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal
Democrat, and was very much in favor of the redistribution of wealth.
**She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch
Republican, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that
she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she
felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to
keep what he thought should be his.
**One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to
higher taxes on the rich and the addition of more government welfare
programs. The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors
had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by
asking how she was doing in school. Taken aback, she answered rather
haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to
maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and
was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like
other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and
didn't really have many college friends because she spent all her time
**Her father listened and then asked, "How is you friend Audrey
doing?"** **She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes
are easy classes, she never studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She
is so popular on campus, college for her is a blast. She's always
invited to all the parties, and lots of times she doesn't even show up
for classes because she's too hung over."
**Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the
Dean's office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your GPA and give it to
your friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA
and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."
**The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily
fired back, "That wouldn't be fair! I have worked really hard for my
grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey
has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked
my tail off!"
**The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to the
Republican Party."*
