HILLARY'S ARMOR: A decades-old story...

HILLARY'S ARMOR: A decades-old story...


by Mia T, 01.11.06

 



Last week, a group called Soldiers for the Truth leaked results of an unpublished Pentagon study that reportedly found that as many as 80 percent of a random sample of Marines killed in Iraq from wounds to the upper body could have survived if they had had extra body armor. On Friday, the New York Times seized on the study.

Faster than you can say "quagmire," Hillary landed on ABC's "Good Morning America" to lambaste the Bush administration as "incompetent" and its failure to provide more armor "unforgivable."

"We perhaps could have avoided so many of these fatalities with the right body armor," concluded Brig. Gen. Clinton, who immediately dashed off letters to Sen. John Warner, R-Va., chairman of the Armed Services Committee; Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., the ranking Democrat on the Armed Services Committee; and Francis J. Harvey, Secretary of the Army. Smarter-than-thou Clinton is, of course, demanding an investigation (highly recommended by image consultants to boost one's pro-military posturing).

Hillary bashed President Bush and Vice President Cheney for callously letting troops die and said she was "just bewildered as to how this president and this vice president continue to isolate themselves from different points of view."

Well, I am bewildered, too. Bewildered at how such a supposedly brilliant and savvy woman -- who is supposedly in tune with American troops -- can so blithely ignore the grave trade-offs involved in this matter.

You want different points of view? Listen to soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division's 3rd Brigade, who must don some 40 pounds of protection and gear while fighting in the desert heat. Capt. Jamey Turner, 35, of Baton Rouge, La., a commander in the 1st Squadron, 33rd Cavalry Regiment bluntly reminded the Associated Press: "You've got to sacrifice some protection for mobility. If you cover your entire body in ceramic plates, you're just not going to be able to move."

Second Lt. Josh Suthoff, 23, of Jefferson City, Mo., said: "I'd go out with less body armor if I could."

There is a legitimate debate to be had about the Army's supply system, military procurement, and contracting squabbles over body armor. However, challenging the leaked study's premises, Spc. Robert Reid, 21, of Atlanta, commented: "It's the Army's responsibility to get soldiers the armor they need. But that doesn't mean those deaths could have been prevented."

A military blogger at Baghdad Guy (web site) who serves in the U.S. Army, 101st Airborne Division, 506th Infantry, sums it up:

"Body armor has saved numerous lives in Iraq and Afghanistan and it will continue to do so, especially as it is modified to better meet the threat we face.

However, there are limitations as to how much armor you can add onto an individual and maintain his effectiveness as a soldier: when I step out the gate I am wearing on my person body armor, a kevlar helmet, my M4 rifle with a few hundred rounds of ammunition, my M9 sidearm with another hundred rounds of ammunition, 2-3 quarts of water, a portable radio, night vision equipment, and numerous other odds and ends ...

" ... Too much weight means a soldier moves slower, tires more easily, [maneuvers] less stealthily and spends more time feeling sorry for himself instead of focusing on the mission. And then there's the bulkiness that becomes an issue as you move through tight space and wedge into the seats of military vehicles that were not designed with comfort and/or legroom in mind. All these tradeoffs must be addressed before you make the decision to add armor, it must be determined that the armor will be effective, and then it must be designed in a way that minimizes impact on our ability to do our job."

Alas, fund-raising, spotlight-grabbing, 2008-planning Hillary isn't interested in sober analysis of trade-offs on the battlefield.

She is too busy playing dress-up to listen to the troops she says she cares so much about now.

It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is that they can't see the problem.

G. K. Chesterton

 

... While America appears not to be ready for a female president under any circumstances, the post-9/11 realities pose special problems for a female presidential candidate. Add to these the problems unique to missus clinton. The reviews make the mistake of focusing on the problems of the generic female presidential candidate running during ordinary times.

These are not ordinary times. America is waging the global War on Terror; the uncharted territory of asymmetric netherworlds is the battlefield; the enemy is brutal, subhuman; the threat of global conflagration is real.

Defeating the enemy isn't sufficient. For America to prevail, she must also defeat a retrograde, misogynous, troglodyte mindset. To successfully prosecute the War on Terror, it is essential that the collective patriarchal islamic culture perceives America as politically and militarily strong. Condi Rice excepted, this requirement presents an insurmountable hurdle for any female presidential candidate, and especially missus clinton, historically antimilitary, forever the pitiful victim, and, according to Dick Morris, "the biggest dove in the clinton administration."

It is ironic that had the clintons not failed utterly to fight terrorism... not failed to take bin Laden from Sudan... not failed repeatedly to decapitate a nascent, still stoppable al Qaeda... the generic female president as a construct would still be viable... missus clinton's obstacles would be limited largely to standard-issue clintonisms: corruption, abuse, malpractice, malfeasance, megalomania, rape and treason... and, in spite of Juanita Broaddrick, or perhaps because of her, Rod Lurie would be reduced to perversely hawking the "First Gentleman" instead of the "Commander-in-Chief."

HILLARY'S COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF PROBLEM
(see descriptor morphs)



issus clinton has worn literal and figurative armor for decades, to hide her incompetence, her corruption, her dysfunction and her repulsiveness.

As for her recent interest in armor for the military, did you know hillary is reprising and updating for the 21st century the clintons' "school uniforms" shtick?

She's pitching nanotech uniforms... and with as much geeky hawk as she can muster.

hillary's burqa
by Mia T, 10.6.05

 

 

hillary's figurative armor:

The clintons, as is their wont, are now taking this proxy scheme to even more outrageous extremes. The latest: an actual hillary clinton proxy presidency, populated on both sides of the camera by assorted rodham and clinton ex-staffers, sycophants and should-be felons, witness the latest hire.

'Commander-in-Chief,' a show that sets out to crown a 'queen,' instead exposes the kitschy simplemindedness of Hollywood fantasy and the special sway and shortsightedness of the pathologic ego.

THE DANGER OF RUNNING VICARIOUSLY
Bill O'Reilly chews up and spits out the hillary clinton candidacy
(clip included)

hillary dumps Geena for Maggie,1 and when that doesn't fly,2 she dumps Maggie for bill. Without missing a beat.

It's the old Dick Morris Hail Mary pass, (when in trouble, triangulate3), the once trusty play that for eight years kept two clumsy kleptocrats4 in the Oval Office and out of the slammer (even as it placed America and Americans in ever-increasing peril.)5

That missus clinton has managed, thereby, to stake out Iraqi territory occupied apparently by no one6 seems to have escaped her notice. Nonetheless, this constituency of zero is the least of her troubles.

IMPERIOUS HILLARY
(THE REPORTS OF HER DEATH ARE GREATLY UNDERSTATED)
by Mia T, 12.05.05

Having failed to snare the Nobel Peace Prize by ignoring terrorism, clinton has apparently decided to intensify his America-bashing on foreign soil, the method employed by Jimmy Carter to great (if somewhat belated) effect: Carter received his 1978 Peace Prize in 2002.

Meanwhile, back in the Senate, the missus, the other half of the clinton construct, maintains her hawkish pose (though not without bird problems of another sort).

Yet another example of the clinton conflation ploy, (see SCHEMA PINOCCHIO: how the clintons are handling the hillary dud factor), this variant allows "clinton, the construct" to hold two mutually exclusive positions simultaneously, thereby enabling the missus to avoid in '08 the trap that repeatedly ensnared the ever 'nuanced' Kerry in '04.

Do you now understand how stupid the clintons think you are?

A CALL TO IMPEACH CLINTON IN ABSENTIA

AN OPEN LETTER TO TIM ROBBINS, DAVID GEFFEN, CHRIS MATTHEWS, MAUREEN DOWD + JEANINE PIRRO

RE: a not-so-modest proposal concerning hillary clinton



Dear Concerned Americans,

Hillary Clinton's revisionist tome notwithstanding, 'living history' begets a certain symmetry. It is in that light that I make this not-so-modest proposal on this day, exactly 64 years after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The context of our concern today--regardless of political affiliation--is Iraq and The War on Terror, but the larger fear is that our democracy may not survive.

We have the requisite machines, power and know-how to defeat the enemy in Iraq and elsewhere, but do we have the will?

In particular, do we have the will to identify and defeat the enemy in our midst?

Answerable to no one, heir apparent in her own mind, self-serving in the extreme, Hillary Clinton incarnates this insidious new threat to our survival.

What we decide to do about Missus Clinton will tell us much about what awaits us in these perilous new times.

NEW MOVIE! for the birds
(THE INCOMPETENCE OF HILLARY CLINTON)

by Mia T, 11.13.05
(viewing movie requires Flash Player 7, available HERE)


Clinton Administration Veteran:
"Hillary Rodham Clinton needs to be kept very far away from the White House for the rest of her life."


My two cents' worth--and I think it is the two cents' worth of everybody who worked for the Clinton Administration health care reform effort of 1993-1994--is that Hillary Rodham Clinton needs to be kept very far away from the White House for the rest of her life. Heading up health-care reform was the only major administrative job she has ever tried to do. And she was a complete flop at it. She had neither the grasp of policy substance, the managerial skills, nor the political smarts to do the job she was then given. And she wasn't smart enough to realize that she was in over her head and had to get out of the Health Care Czar role quickly.... there is no reason to think that she would be anything but an abysmal president.

You need to use the picture of the soldier shaking her hand while presenting the camera with his other hand and his crossed fingers. They hate her and she hates them. Why allow her the pretense of caring for them? She should be highlighted and discredited for all she really is, but she won't be with a kissy-face-go-along-to-get-along Senate. The beast on the Armed Forces committee...puh-lease!

I have never been in desert combat, but I was in jungle combat making several river and many canal crossing per patrol.

We had the old flak vests, steel pots, canned food, lots of ammo, grenades,claymores,etc etc all this plus for some a PRC-25 radio ,M60 Machine gun or medical supplies.

Add extra body armor or other goodies her heinousness suggests will not end death in war..

My guys in RVN faced IEDs in our time we simply called them booby traps or command detonated booby traps..

They could be as simple as fragmentation grenades in empty cans whose pins were attached to fishing line trip wires or 155 arty round strung up in trees and detonated by 12 yr old kids hiding in the brush.

From what I understand our guys are facing explosives sometimes 100X more powerful.

Extra body armor is nice but there will be a price to pay.

Less mobility,flexibility,heat exhaustion & heat stroke

Men too tired to pay the kind of attention needed to close, kill and survive or simply avoid enemy ambushes.

There are no easy answers on how to keep our guys from getting hurt in wartime.

Only jerk off selfish egocentric arrogant politicians who will do anything, say anything to amass power or to stay in power...they could give a rats ass about young men and women getting killed or wounded

I say this based upon all the great speeches I have heard from both parties regarding their 'high regard' for our nations veterans

Meanwhile while the speeches were being made they were cutting funds to the VA medical centers where these same highly regarded wounded veterans were in desperate need for the care these politicians were promising but would never deliver

The Clintons..among others....were foremost in the neglect of our nations veterans

I saw the negative changes Bill Clinton made in the VAMCs...

Other than a few unfortunate Arkansas women..I'd have to say that imo Bill Clinton screwed Veterans more than any other president in my lifetime and I'm pushin' 60.

This is like saying that a random sample of people dying from falling out of trees would have survived if trees had guard rails. This doesn't prove that all trees need guard rails. Only fools would cite this as a definitive study

RE Dan Lasiter:
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR-Salon.com

THE FALWELL CONNECTION BY MURRAY WAAS (03/11/98)

 

Thanks again for the Murray Waas propaganda piece on the nasty right-wing conspiracy led by the great Satan and "Meester Beeg" Jerry Falwell. One of the hallmarks of the communist intellectuals was their capacity to convert any discussion of fact into a discussion of motive, and Murray is certainly keeping the tradition alive. Since he is unable to refute the basic facts regarding Clinton's criminal behavior, he contents himself with vast left-wing conspiracies weaving a complex web of intrigue, shady payoffs and sinister characters all neatly coordinated by the demonic trinity of Falwell, Tyrrell and Scaife.

Hello! Murray! Have you seen Clinton's approval rating lately? If this is a vast conspiracy to get Clinton nobody's apparently paid it much attention. Maybe he's just suffering from cognitive dissonance at the realization that the Great Liberal Hope is just an Arkansas hippie with a $200 haircut.

Just to recap the basics: 1) Jerry Parks documented Clinton's bimbo eruptions and he was executed by a still unknown assassin. His widow, Jane, and his son Gary both stand by their stories that this was a political hit. 2) Paula Jones is a real person and was in the hotel room with Clinton. 3) Dan Lasiter was convicted of distributing cocaine during the time that he was doing business with the Arkansas Development Finance Authority. ADFA was the agency created by Gov. Clinton that was used to launder the cocaine money. 4) Clinton did pardon his good buddy Dan Lasiter after his conviction. And for good measure: 5) Monica's candid admissions on the Tripp tapes are worth all the spin doctor baloney and perjured affidavits in the world. 6) O.J. did it.

Murray, get over it!

I was listening to my local talk radio station this morning, KNST in Tucson. Their news director, Jim Parisi, said he worked on Clinton's campaign for 3 months back in 1992. He said she is the reason he's no longer a Democrat, and described her as the "meanest woman I've ever met, always yelling and swearing" and "not the person you see on TV."

Sometimes in the past I've wondered if she's really as bad as people say she is, but Parisi has always come off as very straight-up and honest on the morning show. She's a psycho who needs to be out of power ASAP.

Dang. Amazing story. I'd have been tempted to just pump a 40mm grenade into Mr. Sniper's car and be done with it.

Since I was never tough enough to be infantry I can only try to put myself in their shoes. I know how it feels to carry a heavy load temporarily from backpacking while deer hunting. I also know how hot it is over there from spending a few months in Dhahran. (The only other place I've been that is that miserably hot is Death Valley. Point a giant blow drier at your body and turn it on.)

So, I am in awe of these guys who spend a year or more over there, carrying over 100 lbs. in that heat all day, not to mention the mental stress of being shot at and the IED's, being away from home so long. So now, these phony "I support the troops but hate what they do" creeps like Hillary want them to carry even more weight than is humanly possible while performing their duties. They forget in past wars there was no body armor aside from flak jackets that don't stop bullets.

At least our troops now are a lot better off than that. Although nothing's too good for them there are unfortunate physical and fiscal limits. But, these lowlifes know that, they are using the troops to get at Bush. No low to which they won't stoop to get power back

DEBUNKING CINDY SHEEHAN
HEAR ABE LINCOLN/JOHNNY CASH + PBS' NEIL CONAN
by Mia T, 8.31.05


(viewing movie requires Flash Player 7, available HERE)

"You tell me the truth. You tell me that my son died for oil. You tell me that my son died to make your friends rich. You tell me my son died to spread the cancer of Pax Americana, imperialism in the Middle East."--Cindy Sheehan

"And if you think I won't say bulls**t to the President, I say move on, cause I'll say what's on my mind."--Cindy Sheehan

 

The trusty triad's half-truths, exaggerations and outright lies, confounded by fog of war, vagaries of peace and uncharted territory of asymmetric netherworlds, remind us that things are not always what they first seem. The UN Oil-for-Food scandal, for example, has shown us it was not "going to war with Iraq" that was "all about oil," but rather, "not going to war with Iraq." The Left, we now see, had that one, (as they have most things), exactly backward.

The dernier cri of seditious and corrupt Leftists everywhere, pro-islamofascist-terrorist radical chic renders the Left, irrespective of policy, no less dangerous to Western civilization than the terrorists they aid and abet.

WHY THE LEFT IS DANGEROUS FOR AMERICA


 
"We didn't understand why the United States was there. We never thought that Iraq was an imminent threat to the United States."--Cindy Sheehan
 
"Some have said we must not act until the threat is imminent. Since when have terrorists and tyrants announced their intentions, politely putting us on notice before they strike? If this threat is permitted to fully and suddenly emerge, all actions, all words, and all recriminations would come too late. Trusting in the sanity and restraint of Saddam Hussein is not a strategy, and it is not an option."

President Bush

 

 

 
"He was murdered by Bush."--Cindy Sheehan

"You get that evil maniac out here, 'cause a Gold Star Mother, somebody whose blood is on his hands, has some questions for him."--Cindy Sheehan


"The biggest terrorist is George W. Bush."--Cindy Sheehan
 
 
"This seems to be the President's reasons for continuing the war. Because he's killed so many American soldiers already, he has to kill more and I believe that's the most insane and immoral reason for continuing the war"--Cindy Sheehan
 
 

Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

I saw the study today. Three pages. The sample was not random. It was not a sample. The study population was all the Marines who died of combat wounds to the torso during a period that was roughly from the start of the war in 2003 until this summer. About 2 years. The purpose was to provide data that might be used to redesign the next generation of torso body armor. The politicalization of this appears to be a long stretch in the view of the analyst who have looked at it.

Good point. I should have said the people that politicized this study are fools. The analysts that actually conducted the study are doing a worthwhile job trying to save soldiers lives.

Thanx guys. :)

Any of us could take her on easily.

There is a reason for her 'listening-tour" muteness, her prescreened audiences, her scripted interviews and questions, her programmed responses, her sycophantic 'interviewers,' her rent-a-crowd boosters, her thuggish removal of dissidents.

There is a reason missus clinton's own people refuse to take off her training wheels....

thanx WCF. :) Great work, doug.

Coerced handshake during missus clinton's 2003 self-serving Thanksgiving visit to Iraq
See (hillary's Iraq Turkeys)

 

Hillary Clinton (D-NY) has already started her 2008 presidential campaign by aligning herself with the military and pretending to be tough on terror. Fortunately, the ultra-liberal Hillary has yet to brainwash all of the voting public into believers that her symbolism is really substance. Guess some folks will never forget that she was co-president for eight years in an administration that I QUOTE: "Loath the military" -doug from upland

 

AUTHENTICATION OF PHOTO

The picture shows that this soldier has been thru Survival School and learned his lessons well. He's giving the sign of "coercion" with his left hand. These hand signs are taught in survival school to be used by POW's as a method of posing messages back to our intelligence services who may view the photo or video. This guy was obviously being coerced into shaking hands with Hillary Clinton. It's ironic how little she knew that he would so inform us about the photo---perhaps because she's never understood our military to begin with.

 

 
It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is that they can't see the problem.

G. K. Chesterton

 

... While America appears not to be ready for a female president under any circumstances, the post-9/11 realities pose special problems for a female presidential candidate. Add to these the problems unique to missus clinton. The reviews make the mistake of focusing on the problems of the generic female presidential candidate running during ordinary times.

These are not ordinary times. America is waging the global War on Terror; the uncharted territory of asymmetric netherworlds is the battlefield; the enemy is brutal, subhuman; the threat of global conflagration is real.

Defeating the enemy isn't sufficient. For America to prevail, she must also defeat a retrograde, misogynous, troglodyte mindset. To successfully prosecute the War on Terror, it is essential that the collective patriarchal islamic culture perceives America as politically and militarily strong. Condi Rice excepted, this requirement presents an insurmountable hurdle for any female presidential candidate, and especially missus clinton, historically antimilitary, forever the pitiful victim, and, according to Dick Morris, "the biggest dove in the clinton administration."

It is ironic that had the clintons not failed utterly to fight terrorism... not failed to take bin Laden from Sudan... not failed repeatedly to decapitate a nascent, still stoppable al Qaeda... the generic female president as a construct would still be viable... missus clinton's obstacles would be limited largely to standard-issue clintonisms: corruption, abuse, malpractice, malfeasance, megalomania, rape and treason... and, in spite of Juanita Broaddrick, or perhaps because of her, Rod Lurie would be reduced to perversely hawking the "First Gentleman" instead of the "Commander-in-Chief."

THE DANGER OF RUNNING VICARIOUSLY:
Bill O'Reilly chews up and spits out the hillary clinton candidacy
by Mia T, 10.27.05
 



the principal being more worthless even than its phantom proxy, both alike unsubstantial, and the former shapeless to boot

--Samuel Taylor Coleridge

 




or the most part, missus clinton operates in absentia, by proxy.

You rarely see her. You almost never hear her. (Think of it as the hillary! 2000 'listening tour' extended ad nauseam.)

And in those rare instances where she does actually speak, the 'event' is always prearranged, prescripted, prepeopled and preprogrammed by the clinton machine....
