  • Former Marine Strike Planner: "Start viewing this administration as an existential threat to Israel"

    Four senior American diplomats -- most likely in the State Department -- as well as senior intelligence officers appear to have leaked a key military relationship between Azerbaijan and Israel. A highly knowledgeable Democratic friend emails Ron Ben-Yishai’s YnetNews report “US thwarting Israeli strike on Iran.” The report asserts that the Obama administration is leaking information to the media in order to avert an Israeli strike in Iran. Ben-Yishai observes that in recent weeks the administration has “shifted from persuasion efforts vis-ŕ-vis decision-makers and Israel’s public opinion to a practical, targeted assassination of potential Israeli operations in Iran.” My friend...

    In what President Obama believed to be an “off-the-record” exchange, he was overheard requesting “space” from the Russians until after the November election when he would have more “flexibility.” This would-be covert conversation has raised suspicions about his intended defense policies for a prospective second term. “Doing the right thing and doing the popular thing are not always one-and-the-same,” Obama explained. “I want to be able to do what’s right.

    We have always been skeptical that Osama Bin Laden maintained operational control over much of Al Qaeda while he was on the run, dodging US forces. When US Special Operations forces caught up with Bin Laden and killed him in a compound in Pakistan, it was initially assumed, or at least reported, that he had been laid up there for almost the entire time he was on the run. It was also widely reported that because Bin Laden was in a secure location for so long, he likely maintained operational control over Al Qaeda globally. That simply did not ring...

    I am trying to write lyrics for a song involving a troop who went to Iraq and whose vehicle encountered an IED (improvised explosive device, i.e. Islamoterrorist guerilla road bomb) that exploded. It presents the man as a hero who saved his buddies when they were thrown out of the vehicle, but who himself perished in a hail of automatic fire from the enemy. There is a lot more to the story both before and afterwards than this, but it is an important story element. The term "IED" is a lot more euphonious (the syllables have a better sound) in...

    The Active Denial System, called ADS for short, is a non-lethal weapon that has been in development for 15 years. It delivers a man-sized heat beam on a radio frequency of 95 gigahertz. Accessing the same millimeter wave technology used in airport body scanners, the beam penetrates only 1/64th of an inch into a person's skin and cornea, heating water molecules in the tissue and generating an instinctive urge to run from the effect. The prototypes the military demonstrated where installed on two different vehicles -- one built onto a heavy expanded-mobility tactical truck, the other onto a Humvee. "You're...

    The success of Egypt’s “Arab Spring” rolled on to yet another triumph as that country’s parliament renounced the possibility that it could ever be an ally of Israel. Instead, Israel was declared Egypt’s “number one enemy.” Following this development, President Obama announced the restoration of US military aid to Egypt. “Israel is a very powerful country in that region,” Obama explained. “If Egypt is to have any chance against them it is imperative that we extend as much military assistance as we can.” The President acknowledged that his decision “probably won’t go over well with some of Israel’s more strident...

The Governors of the Great States of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia still have under their Command-and-Control the State Defense Forces to go against U.S. Federal forces should the need arise. Also important to note: There are NO U.S. laws prohibiting National Guard troops from also joining their State’s Defense Forces. This dilemma occurred during the Civil War with many...

Let’s not forget that Allied Forces had 10,000 casualties on D-Day and 2500 men were killed. That’s a bit of a...

Decommissioned as a military working dog last year, Elra recently was adopted by the outgoing 374th Airlift Wing commander. “She just seemed like an old pal from way back,” said Feather, who met the dog during a K-9 demonstration at Yokota in October. “We just hit it off.” Like every working dog retired by the military, Elra was classified as “excess equipment” before she was adopted. Many military working dogs require extensive veterinary care and...

    Earlier this week, I wrote about the Kony 2012 video and that while it espouses the noble goal of removing Joseph Kony from the Uganda region, there is also a uniquely surreal aspect to it. The man known as the Machine Gun Preacher, Sam Childers knows more about the region than anyone. He has been on the ground there for fourteen years. He builds orphanages for children and protects them with actual weaponry. In short, he's not your typical missionary. Childers has issued a response to Invisible Children's Kony 2012 video and while he congratulates the charitable organization for drawing...

    Instead of being fired, Quinton Keel the Dover AFB mortuary supervisor who dumped 9/11 victims remains in landfill was promoted and allowed to resign after being promoted. Keel whose ghoulish mistreatment of the remains of our fallen military heroes was brought to light by whistleblowers has been force out only because was caught retaliating against them. According to Air Force sources Keel, showed no regard for our honored dead, and no remorse when his willful mishandling of our war heroes’ bodies was revealed by courageous whistleblowers. Instead of contrition Keel systematically retaliated against those who exposed him. Keel has been...

    The truest of conservative political pundits argue that, as a Presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is just Obama in a Reagan suit—and, thus, even as the longstanding frontrunner in the primary, he can’t seem to close the deal on getting the nomination. To this point, most of the critical attention he’s receiving has to do with his record on social issues. But, as Larry Pratt, executive director of the Gun Owners of America (GOA), points out, Romney’s moderate inclinations and flip-flopping habits are converging on the conservative staple issue of gun rights—leaving folks like Pratt very concerned...

  • Obama’s latest campaign promise: weapons for you IF you won’t attack until after reelection

    We know politics is the “art” of give and take, but the report out of Israel about President Barack Obama’s promise to that country is as blatant a political payoff as we’ve heard for a while. And it’s behind closed doors, of course. . . President Make-A-Deal has a principled objection to arming Israel with weapons to use against Iran unless the Israelis agree not to use them until after he is reelected. Gee, why would that be a condition? . . .

    Brett Stephens is not reassured by President Obama's assurances that he "has Israel's back." [quote] Here is a president who fought tooth-and-nail against the very sanctions on Iran for which he now seeks to reap political credit. He inherited from the Bush administration the security assistance to Israel he now advertises as proof of his "unprecedented" commitment to the Jewish state. His defense secretary has repeatedly cast doubt on the efficacy of a U.S. military option against Iran even as the president insists it remains "on the table." His top national security advisers keep warning Israel not to attack Iran...

    At AIPAC, Dhimmi-in-Chief Obama belted out,-"I don't bluff", to seemingly emphasize his readiness and resolve to use military action to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons capability.Today, Obama warned there would be a "price to pay" for what he referred to as "pre-mature"military action against Iran's nuclear sites.In other words he has nullified his "tough talk" at AIPAC.Judging from the Obama Administration's actions, and not just tough words, it has become apparent that any military action will always be "pre-mature".The Ayatollahs of the Islamofacist regime in Iran will not be deterred by Obama's "words". The Iranian regime presses on with it's nuclear weapons...
