Thread 4



Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, our nation has fought a global war against violent extremists who use terrorism as their weapon of choice, and who seek to destroy our free way of life. Our enemies seek weapons of mass destruction and, if they are successful, will likely attempt to use them in their conflict with free people everywhere. Currently, the struggle is centered in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we will need to be prepared and arranged to successfully defend our nation and its interests around the globe for years to come. DOD

Our enemies include all the Muslims who dream of knocking Western Civilization off its perch atop humanity’s dung heap. Islam is fractured into any number of sects, tribes and ethnic groups, but the dream of destroying us cuts across all the fault lines. Islamic terrorists are merely the tip of a very large spear.

J. Peter Mulhern, the American Thinker, September 18

The determination behind that fight is real, the hatred is real, and the excuses for doing this are very real in the minds of those who have decided to walk that path. We can respond in two ways: Try to ignore or negotiate with people who do not want to negotiate in good faith, because what they want is our destruction, or to stand up against the darkness of those who see all of us, our way of life, our culture and our aspirations as something worth eliminating.

Either: "And God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world without the United States and Zionism," Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Or: "With vigilance, determination, courage, we will defeat the enemies of freedom, and we will leave behind a more peaceful world for our children and our grandchildren." GW Bush.

Here's where I will post news and info about the Long War. Let me know if you're interested.

Boy, is that ever true. We have people who get paid for that. Like Valerie Plame. How are they doing? (Actually, there are some out there doing pretty well and I need to acknowledge that, but they aren't busy getting their names in the papers.)

It would have to be #2.

And, if I had to have a choice between the House and the Senate on the 2nd choice, it would be the House, probably...especially if there were still enough GOPers in the Senate to keep anything from passing with 60 votes.

Maliki Government May Fall, Democracy In Action

Inside an article describing Sunday’s terrible violence in Iraq was this interesting item:

Two officials close to Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr said his followers would quit their six Cabinet posts Monday — a move that could leave Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s already weak administration without enough support to stay in power.

The mechanics would be as follows:

Al-Sadr’s six followers on the 37-seat Cabinet would officially withdraw from the government Monday, said Saleh al-Aujaili and Hassan al-Rubaie, members of the Sadrist bloc in parliament. They said al-Sadr’s 30 legislators would stay in parliament.

Again, this is Parliamentary democracy in action. If the Government can not stand, it must fall. Maybe a stronger leader can be found.

I heard that he had some problems.

Someday, you are going to have to come to the Texas Speedway. My daughter used to work in the office complex that overlooks the raceway. She said it is really nice.

They have condos that people buy...and just use during race weesks..LOL

Some quiet pride
By Richard North
Promoted from the diaries by AE—we should all be proud.

While far too much time and attention is being devoted to a rather inadequate part of the Royal Navy – and its attempts to cover up its own incompetence – we can all share some quiet pride in the way the Army is now acquitting itself in Basra.

This is not just the robust action taken last week, when up to 30 Shi’te gunmen were killed, for no losses of our own. Today, according to Reuters, British forces again killed some gunmen, eight this time, who had been found laying IEDs, close to where the four British service personnel had been murdered earlier this month.

There are men out there doing the hard work.
