    November 12, 2007 - Hizbullah is at 2.0043% strength. Lebanon is in rubble. Iran is in rubble. Syria is in rubble. Saudi Arabia is in rubble. Jordan is in rubble. Egypt is in rubble. Iraq is in rubble.

    Many Lebanese say the failure of the international community to resolve the crisis in their country is worsening the situation

    Cowards. Yellow-belly Cowards. The Lebanese need to spill their own blood for their freedom. A failure of a people to recognize and eliminate evil is doomed to live in rubble.

    Rebuild the Temple, not Lebanon.

    Muslims and Muslim nations don't get it. They are not willing to call a terrorist a terrorist. They always point to "the other mosque" and in the end, it is never them, it is someone else and they do not take action.

    Lebanon should be doomed to their current situation because they didn't even point to the terrorists. They certainly didn't take any action against the terrorists. They are incapable of using the word terrorist. Thus, when a people and a country lack the moral conviction to even utter the word terrorist they should live in rubble.

    No rebuilding in Lebanon. And when we destroy Syria and Iran, they too should be doomed to live in rubble. The people of Iran and Syria lack all morality. They do not know right and wrong. It is not just a matter of knowing right and wrong, it is a matter of doing right. The people of Lebanon, Syria, Iran, and Iraq are unwilling to do right because of their religion. They are blinded and paralyzed by their religion.

    We hear about the "innocent" people of nations like Iran and how there is a movement to moderation. But there is no action. Perhaps they are cowards. They certainly are not willing to take things into their own hands and spill their own blood for their freedom. Until a people are willing to die for their freedom they do not deserve to live in the 21st century. They are certainly not worthy of my tax dollars.

    So we should stop rebuilding in Iraq, let Israel destroy Lebanon, and we should send Syria and Iran back to the 8th century. In the process, we take their oil for our efforts of making the world a safer place to live and to pay for the cost of our military actions. This is the price an impotent people need to pay. Perhaps they will realize that all Muslims live a cursed life because of their religion and take the first step to moving towards civilization by converting to another religion.

    Therefore it is the terrorists fault for killing the civilians.

    Time to be completely politically incorrect ... If there were terrorist living next to me, I would take personal responsibility to kill them. When people know where terrorists are and don't take personal responsibility for getting rid of terrorists should be treated as if they are aiding the terrorists. They are doomed with the results of their inaction.

    If the Lebs want to have security, they need to take personal responsibility and get rid of the terrorists. They must spill their blood for their freedom.

    This is a constant in life (well, except for liberals who are willing to live in tyranny). Take any inner city, crime ridden neighborhood. Those who don't take action to rid their neighborhood of drug dealers, gangs and thugs are subject to living in tyranny. Shame on them for not taking action. Police are willing to help but are thwarted by the repressed who are too yellow to live life of freedom and are willing to take charge for their futures. They are doomed to their inaction.

    I can't stand cowards. Send them to the front to regain their manhood.

    US to Provide Military Weapon System to Israel

    July 16, 2005 - Washington, DC - Anonymous Pentagon officials have disclosed the United States is covertly providing a new weapon system to Israel.  The weapon system has been under development since early 2002 and will be deployed ahead of schedule to aid Israel's defense.

    Based on the the KC-135 Stratotanker, the new system with the designation PF-135 has a micro-nuclear reactor that superheats the payload.  Intelligent experts speculate that the payload consists of pig fat, hence the designation PF (Pig Fat) 135.

    Imagine if the US Gov. knew about 9/11 before 9/11 and did nothing about it.

    We know about NK. They have missiles. They have been actively and aggressively trying to build nuclear weapons. We know NK is lead by a wacko. We know that NK does not keep it's word.

    Now we know that they have fired a missile towards the United States.

    Now we know that Russia and China does not want to stand with us.

    Now we know that the United Nations is a complete worthless organization - we've known that for a long time - Thanks Harry, you frickin' stupid Democrat and third worst President of the 20th century. (Behind Carter and Clinton in that order.)

    So, if we know these things and don't do anything about it we are simply gambling? We are gambling that the dog eating NK gooks can't actually get a missile to work. We are gambling that if they do get one to work, that they would only try to be close, and not actually hit us. We are gambling that Kim Jong Ill really isn't mentally ill and out of touch with the world and would never think about intentionally targeting us.

    We can’t do nothing – we know too much. We can’t gamble with a terrorist regime that has never kept its word. We can’t and should never negotiate with terrorists. There is only one thing to do with terrorists and that is to kill every single last one of them.

    We need to take North Korea off the face of the earth. It will send a message to all terrorist in the world that we mean business.

    One last thing … the only rebuilding that we do is of the temple after we have wiped the Muslim terrorists off the face of the earth.

    "We are getting closer to the political model of the United States and Great Britain," Khatib said, "of two main parties, while the smaller parties continue to weaken."

    As I was rebuilding Germany in the days following World War II, I made the comparison that the Nazi party was similar to that of Democrats and Republicans. Of course I was just trying to rebuild a country and trying to justify the use of former party members in part of rebuilding. But after 60 years and two lives, I have to freely admit that I was wrong.

    The Palestinians may have two main parties, but they are both terrorist parties. There is nothing similar to the political model of the United States. The Palestinian people are a terrorist people who have elected two different flavors of a terrorist government.

    Ok, let’s get on with this. Here is the core idea in solving the case:

    1. We destroy the nuclear threat in Iran.

    2. We leave Iran in rubble. An 8th century people deserve to live in the 8th century. No rebuilding this time.

    3. And this time we take the oil. I’m sick of having to pay taxes because of the acts of terrorists. If the terrorist people of Iran have a means to pay for their own justice, we should take it.

    Three thoughts on this: 1.) Only Rueters would use "US Marines" and "Comrade" in a headline. Call me an old cold war loon, but I only see red when I hear the word "Comrade". 2.) The Marine was doing his job. He was shot in the face a day or two before this incident and went directly back into battle. A buddy of his, in his unit, was recently killed by a dead terrorist that was made into an IED. 3.) This happened in a mosque. If we were not fighting such a PC war, the Mosque would have been rubble. This incident would have never happened.

    In the end this fine warrior should be given a medal. His contribution to the war on terror cannot be overlooked or undermined by the leftist MSN. He killed 1 of 100,000,000 just begging to meet their maker. Praise be to F'ing Allah.

    Red State Pro-Lifers Force Removal of Republican Senator

    Nothing wrong with that. Let's spin that a bit - Blue state baby killers outraged by mainstream morality of America

    And the story will be, how we are eating our own, over "extremist" positions.

    Every position conservatives take is an "extremist" position according to the MSM. But guess what. We are the majority now. The DemoRats are losers. They have the extremist positions, not us. The DemoRats are in the minority in their positions. We need to start acting like winners, instead of second guessing our values.

    A sa pro-baby killer, Specter is amoral. He is the extremist. The vast majority of Americans are Pro-Life. Specter is in the minority and does not represent American values.

    And what if Specter jumps ship, joining the Democrats?

    Let him jump ship. It doesn't change the way he thinks or votes anyway. Having him as the chairman of the judical committee is just like having a Democrat as a chairman. Call a spade a spade - Specter is a RINO - that means he is a DemoRat, but just has an 'R' next to his name.

    They have us where they want us on this one, and we'd do best to back off--for the moment--and see if Arlen can play ball.

    Absolutely wrong. Again this is not a winner's mentality. Attack, attack, attack - tu jour audacity! We have the Democrats right where we want them. They are disagreeing with a majority of the Americans. Specter has already taken his position. Let everyone know how out of line Specter and the DemoRats are from mainstream America. Boil it down to a simple issue - Baby Killing. To hell with political correctness and "Pro Choice" BS. It is not a choice to kill babies. That is what they believe in. Make it graphic and use partical birth abortion as an example.

    By the way, I'm pro-life, but it does not consume my every waking moment. I see it as a moral position and a valuable tool in defeating liberals.

  • 'Body parts everywhere' in Fallujah

    PattonReincarnated to numberonepal
    This is the thing that struck as most impressive when the war started. The simple fact that we do not miss is a gigantic step forward in warfare. We don't miss with tank artillery, ground artillery, mobile Howitzers, or even bombs from the sky. And I KNOW our Marines are the best shots in the world.

    I have to agree with your statement, "The simple fact that we do not miss is a gigantic step forward in warfare." But I have to wonder if the general public understands that ramifications surrounding the advances in technology. In some ways, technology has sanitized war and changed some people's expectations. I am all for technology, but as a fiscal conservative and a Muslim hating bastard, I would prefer that a cost analysis is performed on waging war in places like Falluja. Low tech is cheaper, but you have to use more of it. (could be more expensive in the long run) Concurrently the psychological aspects of low-tech are magnified. I wonder what the expense of dropping one bomb (nuclear variety), 10's of bomb (MOAB variety), to carpet bombing from B-52 (1,000's of bombs of the dumb variety) would cost relative to moving our soldiers and marines to Fallujah, resupplying them, and the other planning and logistical costs incurred. (Of course we could factor in the cost of American lives as well.) Someone should have a spreadsheet that minimizes American losses & costs and maximizes Muslims killed. New financial term for everyone: MKR (Muslim killed ratio: MKR = # Muslims Killed / Cost)

    Some people say I am still bitter over 9/11 - they are right.

  • Other Networks' Election Loss Is Fox News's Big Gain

    PattonReincarnated to Ditto
    Question: For the 2008 or 2012 elections, will there still be any such thing as Broadcast News Networks?

    I've thought about this several times in the last couple of days, primarily in the context of who are the biggest losers in this election season. There is a good potential that the MSM is the biggest loser. But we live in a capitalist country and supply and demand will ultimately rule. For instance, how many views will watch FoxNews if they had real conservatives. Imagine Rush Limbaugh replacing O'Reilly. Imagine Sean Hannity with out Colmes. Imagine anything other Gretta. The ratings for FoxNews would go through the roof. Concurrently, it would be the demise of CNN, CNBC, & PMSNBC. Unless, CNN, CNBC, & PMSNBC countered with better conservative host during prime-time. The same would be true for the traditional national evening news.

    I guess this really doesn't directly answer your question. Let's say that Viacom can't get off its liberal agenda, then CBS may still have a news division, but far fewer people will watch it - fewer than today. What will the shareholders of Viacom do? I tell you one thing, I am certainly not going to buy Viacom stock for two reasons. 1.) They have a failing product 2.) I can't bring myself to buy a stock that aids a liberal agenda. I think it will ultimately boil down to shareholders forcing changes to remain competitive. Some will change, others will be beat by the competition.

    Personally, I hope the MSM media morphs into a conservative MSM. Imagine ABCCBSNBC all trying to out do each other in being conservative. Competition can do wonderful things. FoxNews might even be tolerable to watch all evening long. (I can't watch O'Reilly, I turn off Hannity and Colmes as soon as Colmes comes on, and as soon as Greta comes on with her ugly botched plastic surgery face I either go to bed or change the channel.)

If you let me control the military, I'll let the UN tax us.

    No, I don't think so. There is a Republican President, a Republican controlled House and Senate. Exactly why should Republicans work with Democrats? (By the way "work with each other" is Democrat speak for Republicans adopting Democratic ideas, values, and programs.) Democrats can shut their traps. When Democrats understand mainstream America then perhaps they can contribute, but until then Democrats must recognize that they are in the minority. They don't have power. The majority of people of America do not support them. And lastly, Democrats are basically useless piles of sh.. Democrats should just sit there and stink and think about what they did wrong.

    The answer to your son’s question lies in a simple history lesson.

    The 19th century brought the shift from an agrarian economy to an industrial economy. In this shift, people massed in cities that provided easy access to labor, skills, resources and markets that drove the industrial economy. The influx of people to cities in search of jobs required the creation of large quantities of new housing. The vast majority of this housing was built at the turn of the last century and used lead-based paint. Quite simply, many children growing up in cities grew up eating lead-based paint when they were teething. Additionally, the industries in the urban centers produced toxic waste and pollution. The combination of lead-based paint, toxic waste and pollution lead to a vast proportion of urban populations being brain damaged.

    NO WAY would I allow a kid of mine to study Islam in school. I'd be the one to teach my kid about Islam. And 9-11 would be where I would start.

    We should teach our children about Islam. But, don't start with 9-11. Start with Mohammad. There is plenty to learn that creates a perfect contrast to Jesus Christ. You could start with how Mohammad, while fasting, had delusional visions in a cave which he thought was the word of God. Then you can teach the orginal acts of terror under Islam as the Mohammedans attacked merchant caravans traveling from Syria to Mecca. This started the first of three Meccan wars, after each, Mohammad eliminated a tribe of Jews living in Medina. Then of course there is the spread of Islam - by the sword. When the children are a little older, they can also learn how Mohammad was a pedophile. For greatest impact, the lessons should include modern day practices of Islam in Saudi Arabia, Iran and around the world.

    You have no clue what you are writing about.

    We went in and kicked the bast@rds' @sses. And we continue to do so every day. I'm so sick and tired of the pussies around here when it comes to waging war. It seems that no one has a frickin' clue to how successful our warriors are. We covered more ground, defeated more of the enemy and liberated more people faster with fewer casualties than any time in history.

    The casualty rate to this day is lower than any time in history.

    Too many people on this thread have been brainwashed by the MSM. Iraq needs to be recognized for exactly what it is in military terms. It is a strategic chunk of ground that completes the surrounding Iran and puts the fear of God into Syrians, Jordanians, and Saudis because we control it. We have built military bases. We have control of former Iraqi air force bases in the middle of no where. If need be, we can safely assemble a force in Iraq without asking permission of anyone. Certainly Bush isn't going to show his hand on this, but look at the GD map and figure it out.

    In the process of all of this, Iraq might get freedom and democracy. That's largely up to Iraqis. The democracy card that Bush refers to so eloquently is a long range plan, but we are fighting a war on terror today. Fortunately the stupid sh/T terrorists are willing to travel on their own to Iraq for their ultimate and pathetic deaths. At least they are not traveling to the USA. This is actually saving a great deal of money since we don't have to go after them, they are coming after us in a safe place. Yes, Iraq is a safe place - it's better having to fight terrorists on the streets of America where innocent Americans would die. Don't ask me if I care if innocent Iraqis die.

    Do we need more soldiers and marines on the ground? I guess not, since our generals are not asking for them. It has been made completely clear that the generals get what they need. People have to understand the opportunity cost of having more troops on the ground. We are waging a global war on terror - our troops might be needed somewhere else than Iraq. Our generals are thinking multiple steps ahead and years ahead in this war. It's about time people recognize excellence and bash the crap out ignorant peaceniks that do you know what is at risk and how long it is going to take to rid the world of Muslim terrorists.

    Why not show these docs to the MSM? CNS is just preaching to the choir...

    Perhaps the docs were shown to the MSM. What are the chances that the MSM would do anything with docs if the MSM had them?

    Personally, I have to say this story falls into the category of "too good to be true." I think if we sent in special forces into Syria to secure Saddam's WMD would be a much better story. At the same time we can escalate things with the terrorists in Syria.

  • Kerry would still supply Iran with nuclear fuel (No Misspeak!)

    The give-nuclear-fuel-to-the-Iranian-mullahs line was the most incredible Kerry statement of the night. He also had four or five other howlers, but this one is in a class by itself. It should be come a Republican campaign ad.

    You got that right. You think they could concurrently nail Clinton for doing the same thing in N. Korea. Also have to directly call Kerry "ignorant" or something worse, accusing Bush of doing nothing with Iran. Considering we have had wonderful sanctions in place in Iran (wonder if there is an transparency on those programs at the UN) for years.

    Would it let the cat out of the bag if Bush said we are in Iraq because it surrounds Iran. This is the most signficant thing the Bush Administration has done since 9/11. In all seriousness, if I was a general in today's military (note: I was a general in a previous life) my primary reason for being in Iraq would be because it is a whole lot easier to wage a multi-front war if you have military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. (Guess what we have built in both places, and in close proximity to the Iranian border.) Concurrently, we are knocking at Syria's border as well. It is also easier going into Iraq first since the military is more of a known quantity in Iraq than Iran. Perhaps Bush can put on a half hour infomercial for the galatically stupid that can't read between the lines.

  • U.S. eyes all-out offensive to subdue Fallujah rebels

    Gen. Glosson said the U.S. military made three mistakes: not destroying the elite Republican Guard, some of whose officers now lead the insurgency; disbanding the regular Iraqi army, pushing its soldiers toward the insurgency; and stopping U.S. Marines in April as they were clearing Fallujah of terrorists.

    This has to do with America being too politically correct. The one thing Islamic Terrorists are not is politically correct. Chronologically the U.S. made only two mistakes. First, was not destroying every thing related to the military and the government in Iraq and concurrently saying we will not stop until we have a unconditional surrender. (which would not have happen - thus, everything related to the government and military would have been destroyed.) Second, is rebuilding Iraq.

    Perhaps Fallujah can be a place were we redeem ourselves. To fully understand my line of thought, you need to know that I consider every adult in Fallujah responsible for the current situation - no one in Fallujah has done anything to rid Fallujah of terrorists. In fact, many people of Fallujah have aided the terrorists. That makes everyone in Fallujah part of the problem. Let the women and children get out, but then cordon off all of Fallujah forcing the men to confront their problem. Give the men of Fallujah two weeks to collect all weapons and rid Fallujah of the terrorists. (This won't happen of course.) Divide Fallujah into 14 concentric sectors, radiating from the center of Fallujah. (that is one sector for each of the 14 days in two weeks.) On day one, carpet bomb the outermost sector, forcing the men of Fallujah to the center and to confront the terrorists. Each day the next inner most sector is destroyed. If the men of Fallujah destroy the terrorists - or if the terrorists find it in their souls to save the people of Fallujah and give up, then the bombing can cease. In the end, there will be no terrorists in Fallujah. The second part of this plan is not to rebuild Fallujah. A people who practice a religion stuck in the 7th century can live and die like people of the 7th century. No electricity, no sewage, no water treatment. Fallujah can stand as a monument of what an evil religion does to a people.

    What I like about this plan is: 1.) It is simple. 2.) It requires air power only. 3.) The outcome of the plan is clear - there will be zero terrorists remaining. 4.) Our tax dollars are not wasted on rebuilding. 5.) There is now one city in rubble that is a testament to our resolve. Perhaps now they will take us seriously.

    For anyone who thinks that I am some war monger wacko, you got me completely wrong. I want zero American casualties and I want to stop the tide of terrorism in its tracks. I mean terrorism world-wide. These wackos haven't received the message and they think they can continue to test our resolve. If you want to see the terrorists resolve, simply watch the beheading videos over and over again for a half hour straight. I'm not afraid. I'm not angry. I'm not mad. At this point, I am just cold, calculating and wanting to end terrorism.

    The people would hate us. Our tax money would be used to rebuild it. Lose-lose situation.

    The people would hate us? I think they already hate us. The tax money is another issue. I don't think we should rebuilding - anything period. Bomb them back into the 7th century and leave them to rot. The will know that they we are serious and perhaps the next country - Iran, Syria, etc. will wake up and understand that they have to take matters into their own hands or they will be living a 7th century existance as well.

    If this keeps up, Kerry himself will be voting for Bush.

    I actually voted for George Bush, before I voted against him, but I did that three times, however my vote was denied by an evil conspiracy, you know Bush caused the hurricanes in Florida and the earth quakes in California to stop voter turn out, although my absentee ballot was delivered by the Kerry campaign and it will be counted twice, but duh, I forget who I voted for.
