Last Straw

December 31, 2009

Small Wars Journal is out of here (off my little blogroll).

They’ve allowed and condoned one too many open links to Holocaust Deniers and 9/11 Troofers, specifically to the “Counterpunch” website, a website where the far Left and the far Right meet at Jew Hate Central. If and when Small Wars Journal figures out who the real enemy is, maybe then they’ll figure out how to win this war, but I doubt it.

Chris Van Hollen D-Md is a Liar…

December 31, 2009

Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., who chairs the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said Obama “has been far more aggressive in fighting al Qaeda than the Bush Administration which turned its focus from al Qaeda to Iraq.”

But Mr. Van Hollen (born in Pakistan) is an “elected” official from the state of Maryland, so pathological lies are to be expected since veracity is not one of the job requirements for state officials. We should not expect any the less from an elected official that called openly for a US “peacekeeping” invasion of Israel.

al-Qaeda was in Iraq in 2000. They were still there in 2003. In spite of being badly defeated by the US military under George W. Bush’s command, al-Qaeda is still in Iraq at the end of 2009.

President Obama’s Surrender Speech at West Point, with its firm commitment to withdrawal from both major theaters of the same war, does not qualify as “fighting” in any way, shape, or form. The current US military Rules of Engagement in Afghanistan cannot be misconstrued as being “aggressive” by anybody with two brain cells, even al-Qaeda is mocking that very obvious lack of aggression.

President Obama’s “Open Hand” policies are not, by any possible definition, “aggressive” or “fighting.”

I suppose we should expect no less from lawyer Chris Van Hollen (D) who wasted so much tax payers money “investigating” the Bush administration for a non-crime in the middle of a world war.

You’ve lied to Maryland Mr. Van Hollen. You’ve lied to America Mr. Van Hollen. You’ve lied to Israel Mr. Van Hollen.

Enough already.

Because It Doesn’t Fit…

December 23, 2009

…in one of Long War Journals little comment boxes…

===

Nissonic – “Does the U.S have authorization to attack any country they see fit? Are there no restrictions?”

R – No. There are restrictions. Far too many in fact.

Nissonic – “Al Queada and other islamic insurgent groups can hide anywhere in the arabic world…its not restricted to only Afghanistan. How can America fight the entire muslim world? What do you hope to gain?”

R – They aren’t restricted to the “Arabic” or otherwise Islamic world either. They hide in North and South America, Europe (including Sweden), and other parts of Asia as well. Al-Qaeda apologists go to great pains to point out that extremist Islamic terrorist’s and their sympathizers are only a tiny percentage of the “Muslim” world. But if we have to fight the entire Muslim Umma, then we shall. Victory over religious tyranny seems like a good start.

=

Nissonic – “I cant answer all of you who replied to me individually.”

Render – I’ll bet…

Nissonic – “I know that the U.S have been playing the world police for good and bad…for half a century now.”

Render – Only 50 years? Guess you missed that whole Teddy Roosevelt era in your studies, huh? Too bad so much of the rest of the world has no interest in policing itself or helping us clean up the neighborhood.

Nissonic – “You did neutralize some foes like Saddam Hussein and I think that the world at the moment is better off with people like them offline.”

Render – We did do that, didn’t we? “Neutralize” Now there’s a cool word. I prefer to refer to it as “We let the Iraqi’s string the evil bastard up like the meat puppet he was.”

Nissonic – “However when is it time to stop interveining in other countries buisnesses?”

Render – When they stop sheltering and giving aid to those who attacked us. Pretty simple, huh?

Nissonic – “I understand the pursuite of terrorist world wide and the hunt for Al qaeda and other islamic insurgents.”

Render – That’s good. But I don’t think you truly understand it at all, any of it.

Nissonic – “I do know that Al qaeda and the some of the more extreme talibans are vicious.”

Render – I was right, you do not understand any of it. All Taliban are “vicious.”

Nissonic – “However look at it this way. During WW2 the germans and the japanese were the foes.”

Render – No, the individual German and Japanese civilians were not “the foes.” Their governments were.

Nissonic – “Two important countries wich population was brainwashed by two extreme ideologies.”

Render – Note that the Nazi and Imperialistic Japanese governments claimed the same of the American and British populations.

Nissonic – “What differs the combattants of those with the same vicious mind to those recruited into Al Qaeda?”

Render – Uniforms and technological capabilities for starters.

Nissonic – “Is it some poor farmer in Afghanistan that have created Al Qaeda?”

Render – Was it some poor French, Polish, or Chinese farmer that created the Nazi’s or the Empire of the Rising Sun?

Nissonic – “Who is the mastermind behind the Al Qaeda operations? Whats his name?”

Render – Those cannot be serious questions at this point in time. Allow me to invite you to scroll back through the archives of this very (Long War Journal) blog. I’m quite certain you will find numerous names that answer those descriptions.

Nissonic – “Does he have anything in common with Adolf Hitler or Tojo?”

Render – There is that extreme hatred of Jews…

Nissonic – “What differs Al Qaeda from other extreme groups like the nazis? It has a strong leader and without it it will fall apart.”

Render – al-Q isn’t a nation, or a government. According to jihadi sympathizers the death or capture of OBL and/or Doctor Z will not harm or reduce al-Q’s abilities. I’m quite prepared to test that theory…

Nissonic – “Will there be a lecture about the rules of engagement and other moralic values in times of war?”

Render – Do you feel you need a lecture? Will you question the rules of engagement of al-Q and the Taliban?

Nissonic – “What are those moralic values when America faught against a superior army as the British during the war of independece or the so called justified war in vietnam.”

Render – The Redcoats and their Indian allies committed far more “atrocities” during the American Revolution then the Americans and their Indian allies did. However, the Geneva Convention hadn’t been thought of yet, so that’s all quite irrelevant. In 1964 there was ample justification for US involvement in Vietnam; by 1968 any and all justifications were lost in the confusion of coup, counter-coup, and rampant corruption.

Nissonic – Whos doing the autrocities? The leader who commands or the footsoldier in the field?”

Render – Both.

Nissonic – “Who massacrated poor villagers in Vietnam and who harrassed prisoners of war in Iraq? They were as innocent as the people you still morn at the world trade center towers.”

Render- The North Vietnamese and their Viet Cong allies massacred at least as many “poor villagers” as the Americans and their allies had, the difference between the two being quite obvious. The North Vietnamese and VC committed their massacres intentionally, with malice and forethought. You probably should reconsider this line of morale equivalence you’re following…

Nissonic – “Al qaeda makes autrocities…so do the Americans.”

Render – No. al-Q plans, designs, and commits atrocities as a matter of intention. That’s why they’re called terrorists.

Nissonic – “The leaders command and leave the lower underlings to do the autrocities for them.”

Render – Nothing new in any of that. Congratulations, you’ve graduated from the Pink Floyd School of international relations…

Nissonic – “There should be no restrictions where to strike then. Go and bomb any country you see fit because there you will find the “bad guys” a threat to the american people.”

Render – Bomb or arrest, whichever it takes, wherever they are. Even in Sweden.

Nissonic – “As the poor farmers of Afghanistan are a serious threat to the americans in the U.S so was the poor farmers of Vietnam that performed numerous terrorist acts on american soil. Go to Vietnam and kill them all as a pay back.”

Render – The poor farmers of Afghanistan have three choices. Support the US in defeating the Taliban, support the Taliban in being seventh century thugs and terrorists, or ignore the whole thing and go on growing their drug crops for brain addled Pink Floyd fans. The US reimburses those farmers whose property and lives have been lost or damaged. The Taliban does not. American sympathizers of the North Vietnamese did in fact perform terrorist acts on US soil during the Vietnam War era. We’ve since elected their students into power. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Nissonic – “I hope I got the point clear.”

Render – Our current President says, “Let me be perfectly clear” a lot. He rarely is, either.

Nissonic – “Underlings fighting underlings in the name of autrocity. Al Qaeda like any other group from the past has one leader or leadership that brainwashed the others to join their “cause”.

Render – So nobody ever volunteers for such a cause? An awful lot of Swedes volunteered themselves to the Waffen SS during WW2, were they all brainwashed as well?

Nissonic – “It could be any as it has nothing to do with religion or Islam.”

Render – You might want to check with al-Q and the Talib about that misconception of yours. They are quite convinced that it has everything to do with Islam.

Nissonic – “Some might have as living in an ascetic manner like some rules of the Taliban.”

Render – Or they might not.

Nissonic – “However bombing civilians is nothing related to religion. They use it as an excuse to wage their war. Hitler used some excuses to make his ideology and spread it to others.”

Render – Again, you’re more then welcome to attempt to convince the combined al-Q and Taliban leadership that none of this has anything to do with their twisted interpretation of religion. We, on the other hand, do not need an excuse. We already have a valid reason.

Nissonic – “Go find the leaders responsible for the acts made by their servants, not them themselves. Search for Osama Bin Laden.”

Render – We’re working on that. Would you like to help, or just whine about it?

Nissonic – “My best bet is that hes hiding in the East Turkestan region of China. Hes not stupid enough to hang around in Afghanistan or Pakistan.”

Render – On second thought, stick to the whining part if that’s the best you’ve got.

Nissonic – “Also look out for Somalia. With the islamic insurgents advancing rapidly it could be the new haven for islamic extremists or jihadists. It could be the new Taliban ruled Afghanistan on a comfortable distance to the arabic world…”

Render – Gee, ya think? We’ll get right on that…right after we finish making the rubble bounce in Afghanistan.

There are no political issues more important then this one…






It’s not about the Health Care Scam (yes, it is a scam). It’s not about the Global Warming Scam (yes, it is a scam).

It’s not about the national debt (that’s my money you’re giving away). It’s not about the economy (the “elected” foxes are now guarding an empty henhouse).

It’s about American men and women, in a little piece of hell, as far from home as they can get and still be on the planet. It’s about American men and women fighting against the very same people that committed 9/11 (yes, they did). It’s about a wartime American President who refuses to use the word “victory” in relation to the war of his term in office. It’s about a war that will still be going on after American forces are withdrawn from combat without victory. It’s about a war that will still be going on after this American President has left office, for whatever reason.

WELCOME TO
HELL MAN D,

A little wub note from Outcast1Bravo on the Infinity Ward forums…

Thanks so much for this rotting piece of garbage that is this MP experience, IW. I can’t believe you devs are so completely lazy and money hungry that you would totally screw the PC community that made your series so popular. What is even worse, is that I, and everyone else for that matter, cannot even enjoy a LAN game, which is a must when deployed given our horrid internet connectivity over here. That alone is a game killer for me. After a long day of patrolling, getting shot at with small arms fire, RPGs, being IED’, and RKG-3′d to death, literally… we can’t blow off a little steam and relax with some CoD. Thanks gents, thanks a lot.

We took a little time during our patrol at a IP station to say thanks.”

Yes, it is a real picture. No photoshop, no BS.

And what was Infinity Wards sole response? They banned the American soldier from their forums. While leaving little Leftist trolls like “Irish Drunk” to bad mouth America and its military non-stop.

MW2 – Not balanced for the real military either.

A quick shout out to Da King of the Innernets for picking up on this too…
