  • The Foolhardy Fallacy Of Requisite Proportional Response (Israel against hezbollah)

    Column posted at 850 KOA website ^ | Monday July, 17th, 2006 | Gunny Bob Newman
    The elite liberal media, being yapping lap dogs for the American political left, have been screaming about the evil Jews using disproportionate force as Israel finally responds to the carnage Muslim terrorists have been heaping upon it of late. The proverbial last straw was the Iranian- and Syrian-controlled terrorist group Hezbollah kidnapping two Israeli soldiers in northern Israel. Hezbollah, in case you have forgotten, carried out the 1983 attacks on the United States Embassy and Marine compound in Beirut, the 1984 attack on the U.S. Embassy annex in Beirut, and the 1996 destruction of the Khobar Towers U.S. military barracks...

    I began studying Iran in 1979 as a 21-year-old Marine sergeant and Recon (Recon is the Corps’ version of Navy SEALs and Army Rangers and Green Berets) team leader with "A" Company, 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion. My studies began because terrorists in Iran had just overthrown Shah Reza Mohammed Pahlavi, sacked the United States Embassy in Tehran and taken dozens of Americans hostage. A few months later, my unit, the 31st Marine Amphibious Unit (MAU) out of Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, was in Thailand when our mission was changed and we headed up through the tanker- and cargo-ship-packed Straits of Malacca (I...

    Whereas I am dead-set against the idea of the government of the United Arab Emirates running terminal operations at any American commercial ports, it is also important to understand just how painfully little the average American, average American politician and average American bureaucrat knows about the conduct of terrorist operations, especially the reconnaissance and attack phases of an operation. Since the U.A.E. � U.S. port scandal blew up just over a week ago (in large part because of a total communications and leadership failure in government), seemingly innumerable talking heads have been commenting on the vulnerability of shipping containers, which...

    On 14 February 2006 at 10:15AM ET on FOX News Channel, disgraced retired US Army general and one-time presidential candidate Wesley Clark demonstrated why he was fired by then Secretary of Defense William Cohen from his last post for integrity violations and character issues. It had and still has to do with judgment and knowing the difference between right and wrong. The discredited ex-soldier stated very clearly, even after being asked for verification by the show anchor, Brigitte Quinn, that the United States must negotiate with the terrorist government of Iran before using military force to prevent the mad mullahs...

    America’s radical left wing is learning many lessons of late. Remarkably, however, they couldn’t care less about the grades they are being handed by their teachers, namely the American people. Lesson 1: Screaming before live TV cameras on the Senate floor like a maniac with a 40-pound overripe tomato perched atop one’s neck, rolls of blubber quaking beneath several chins, spittle flying and appearing to be just about to blow a heart valve, is not conduct that impresses Americans. This is how girl killer Ted Kennedy behaved during debate over Samuel Alito the day before Alito’s confirmation to the Supreme...

    Getting into a war zone to report live and do live shows takes some effort and flexibility. Here's the latest on Gunny Bob's expedition to Iraq. On 4 January, the Gunny will fly to Kuwait City via Beirut as it stands now, but that route could change. In any case, he should arrive in Kuwait on 6 January and them hopefully get a hop into Baghdad on 7 January. On 8 January, Gunny will join the 2nd Marine Division in Fallujah. He will stay there until the 10th or so for some live and taped interviews and reports, and then...

    GUNNY BOB'S COLUMN DECEMBER 06, 2005: America’s Traitors: Hang ‘Em High Julius and Ethel Rosenberg Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Robert Garwood. Clayton Lonetree. Four Americans with one thing in common: they betrayed their country for personal gain. In the case of the Rosenbergs, the communist spies and traitors helped their beloved Soviet Union acquire classified intelligence at America’s expense. America’s loss and the Soviet Union’s gain equated to the Rosenberg’s political gain. Robert Garwood, a Marine in the Vietnam War, was captured and then went over to the enemy’s side in exchange for favorable treatment. Clayton Lonetree, also a Marine,...

    GUNNY BOB'S COLUMN DECEMBER 01, 2005: Once More Unto The Breach The email came in this morning. A Marine officer from the Ground Combat Element-Multi-National Force (GCE-MNF) in western Iraq was informing me that the 2nd Marine Division would be awaiting my arrival in al Anbar Province in the first week in January 2006. My media "embed" request had been approved. In my mind’s eye, time turned back to May 1977, Platoon 3037, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, Recruit Training Regiment, Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, South Carolina. Private Newman was standing at attention in the "DI hut" in my...

    MSNBC's talk show host Chris Matthews is a man who obviously: (1) Believes he is the smartest person on television; (2) Enjoys bullying women such as Michelle Malkin on the air; (3) Enjoys bullying senior citizens who may not be as quick with the mouth as he is; (4) Is irrelevent except for a few of his fellow moonbats who actually believe he's a mental giant; (5) Is of the opinion that he's really competition for Fox News Channel's lineup. During a speech he gave in Canada at the University of Toronto, Matthews did what most American liberals do when...

    Bloated blowhard Michael Moore says George Bush is a racist and intentionally delayed Hurricane Katrina relief because he hates blacks. The remarkably wealthy and obese Moore, who makes more money during lunch than most Americans make in a month, refuses to take some of his scores of millions and mount a rescue and relief effort for the very blacks he claims to love and care for. Self-proclaimed scientist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., says Bush created Hurricane Katrina because he wouldn’t sign off on the Kyoto Accords. He fails to mention that the Accords came about during the Clinton years and...

    Good interview by Mike Rosen on KOA 850am today with Melanie Morgan of Move America Forward and Deborah Johns of Northern California Marine Corps Moms. In the final minutes of their one hour appearance a caller from Colorado Springs called in to argue against the two guests and the mission of our military in Iraq. He started the call by stating that he had served for ten years in the Army during the first gulf war in Kuwait / Iraq. The caller was unhinged during his 5 to 7 minutes 'debating' with Mike and Melanie Morgan, totally undisciplined. He was...

    The photos of the victims are horrifying. With their bodies covered with huge pustules that will have left large craters in their skin forever (if they survived), the victims of smallpox suffered unimaginable agony. Along with the pus-filled lesions came crushing headaches, delirium, extensive bleeding, crippling backaches, chronic fatigue, unstoppable diarrhea and vomiting, bone infections, pneumonia, and fevers that oftentimes ran above 104 degrees. Highly contagious, it is easily spread through droplets expelled by sneezing, coughing or breathing, and it can also be spread through contact with an item touched by an infected person, like a set of keys, cell...

    I have just received an extremely nasty email from Randi Rhodes, host of the vile, anti-freedom "Randi Rhodes Show" on the failing, under investigation Air America. Ms. Rhodes doesn't like me and says, among many other things, that I am "sick." Shocking! Hopefully she will discuss me on her show soon. I love free publicity, especially from another talk-show host and especially from one on the far, far left. Is she a lesbian? Just curious. Not that there's anything wrong with that (a la Seinfeld).

    Cindy Sheehan does not believe those filthy ragheads and camel jockeys in Iraq deserve freedom. Nor does she believe they should be allowed to live in peace or be able to sleep at night without wondering if their genocidal dictator’s bloodthirsty henchmen are going to kick their door in and drag the entire family off to a grisly torture chamber, where the parents will be made to watch their children be repeatedly raped and sodomized and finally blinded and dismembered while still alive. Her son adamantly disagreed with her. U.S. Army Specialist Casey Sheehan, in fact, disagreed with his mother...

The Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus has asked me to appear before them on 21 September. I will now spend the next 7 weeks preparing for my testimony.

    I have been a student of war since 1968 and became a Marine in the 1970s as a teenager. In part because of my unusual, enhanced career path as a Marine infantry unit leader with extensive special operations and counterterrorism experience, and because of my access to some of the foremost asymmetric warfare and terrorism experts alive today, I have been able to formulate an 10-point plan that, if strictly adhered to, will allow the United States and its allies to win the war on terror sooner than expected. Points 1 through 9 are mandatory in that failure to accomplish...

    The pain is mind-boggling. I hate that parachute and every other thing and event that partially disabled me. And I hate the fact that I wasn’t clever enough to realize long ago how I would pay much later in life for my knowing and willing abuse on my body in the Corps. My machismo stopped me from seeking the medical attention I needed after each injury while on active duty, and sometimes the situation was such that seeing the corpsman or battalion surgeon wasn’t an option at the moment. C’est la guerre. But what I hate the most is how...

Frankly, I am proud to be so abnormal. In his latest anti-American tirade in the way-to-the-left Post, "Radical Reggie" continues his never-ending attacks on America by stating that "the flag is not without its problems."

    The first battle was joined about a week ago. My unit’s enemies had been enjoying many victories (all against the weak and defenseless) on battlefields outside of my area of operations when they finally showed up in a place my growling troops could get at them. I quickly consulted my small-unit leaders, analyzed the intelligence I was being provided with, called the enemy to let them know they were about to get whomped (I like to fight fair and have found that telling the enemy they are about to get their asses handed to them has a way of rattling...
