Bombs Away At Kobani

Air strikes continue on ISIS forces that are attacking the Kurdish city of Kobani. There is something ironic that over a decade after American forces invaded Iraq, American forces are still fighting in Iraq. Of course, once upon a time, the government of Turkey was our “ally,” but today the government of President Recep Erdogan is committed to the war against terrorists from Kurdistan whom he considers to be a greater threat than any ISIS force. Bombs fall on Kobani as Turkish tanks and troops watch the action from a mile away in Turkey. American and other coalition planes drop bombs, and seek to destroy ISIS through the air. Once again, Americans believe that bombs dropped from planes will “destroy the enemy.” Examine the facts of bombing from the air:

1. US and British air forces were daily sending 1,000 planes to bomb Germany. They destroyed vast sectors of cities, but up until thirty days before the end of World War II in Europe, the German army was still fighting against its enemies.

2. There is still criticism by many Jewish groups about the issue of bombing train tracks leading to death camps. At no time, until two months before the fighting ended in Europe did the German army fail to repair bombed train tracks within four days.

3. We bombed and bombed in Vietnam, and it was the bombers who finally left Vietnam.

We can bomb Kobani. However, unless either one of the following happens, it can not win the war: (1) troops on the ground arrive from coalition forces, (2) the Kurdish army is provided modern weapons and logistical support to take on ISIS. Do either one of these actions and ISIS will be destroyed. Bomb away all you want, it will not end ISIS!

US Supreme Court Continues Assault On Americans!!

I am frequently told by young Americans that politics is filled with dishonest people so it makes no difference who is elected. Most of those under 35 are cynical and dislike any aspect of our political system. Just ask one of these Americans if there really is a difference as to who is elected to public office. Former President George Bush was barely elected, and he proceeded to stack the US Supreme Court with conservatives who believe their primary task in life is ensuring that our beloved 1% never are endangered by any action of government. George appointed Justice Roberts and Justice Alioto, and it is these men who are engaged in a war against democracy in America. The Supreme Court struck down a decision by a Judge who insisted the Texas voter ID law was unconstitutional. It requires an ID. OH, one can submit an ID for carrying a concealed weapon, but one cannot use an ID given to college students. Check that one out for “democracy.”

During the past presidential election over TWO HUNDRED MILLION VOTED. Yes, there were some invalid votes. This figure comes to FEWER THAN TWO HUNDRED. So, why the need for a voter ID? The answer is simple, to prevent poor people from voting, to prevent college students from voting. Our Supreme Court is controlled by those who oppose democracy in this nation. First, the majority claim that corporations are entitled to rights of PEOPLE, now they insist people cannot vote.

Any young person who refuses to vote on ground all politicians are crooks, is simply empowering the wealthy to become even more powerful.

Obama Plays Lawyer Rather Than Leader!

Once again, President Barack Obama has decided to play law professor rather than assume the mantle of leader of the nation. A college professor makes clear to students that he is always right, and for any comment by a student, he is quick with a retort to prove them wrong. The White House is arguing that the 1973 War Resolution which allows Presidents a sixty day window in which to respond to violent acts does not apply to bombings in Iraq against ISIS. In theory, October 7 would mark the end of legal bombings in Iraq, and require an act of Congress to continue such action. However, lawyer Obama now cites the 2001 and 2002 Authorization Military Force resolutions passed to allow President Bush to pursue Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida as justification for bombing in Iraq.

When will Barack Obama learn how to be a leader. He should have rushed to Congress and obtained authorization for bombing in Iraq. Does he actually believe that Republicans would vote against such action? How dumb can Obama be? No Republican running for re-election would provide his opponent the opportunity to blast his failure to “protect America.” This was a golden opportunity to get Republicans as your ally in this war. Instead, he allows them to stay on the sidelines offering negative comments. He took them off the hook of responsibility.

Barack Obama needs an old time Irish politician in the White House to guide his behavior.

Court Aborts Abortion Bans

The state of Texas is more than a physical entity, it is also a state of mind. Governor Rick Perry, among the great thinkers in our society, believes the “greatest threats to America” are caused by bans on guns and women who insist on having an abortion. Texas has passed one law after another to impede the right of women to have an abortion. Thank God,the US Supreme Court placed a hold on the latest attack on women, the 2013 anti-which closed all but a few abortion clinics in Texas. The law requires doctors working in an abortion clinic to have access to a hospital. Of course, many hospitals fear being connected with abortion so they block doctors from gaining access to the hospital.

The new ruling will enable about 2o of the existing 30 odd abortion facilities to remain open. Texas has ben attempting an end run against the Roe decision which allows abortion,. The government of Texas simply blocks access to abortion facilities, as part of its plan to end abortion in the state. The most remarkable aspect of this endeavor is lack of anger on the part of women to have their rights taken away. Vote against Republicans to vote for women rights!

Turkey Allows Bombing- Hurrah!

A Turkish army is poised on its border just outside the besieged city of Kobani as Kurds fight to prevent a mass human massacre. This army has tanks, well trained soldiers and could within a week drive ISIS from the area, and if it so desired, drive ISIS from Iraq. However, the army sits and listens and does nothing. However, Turkish President Recep Erdogan has finally allowed American plans to use his airports in order to blast away at the Muslim terrorists. Erdogan regards Kurds as the major enemy facing Turkey, not Islamist terrorists. His plan is to allow ISIS to wipe out Kurds, and thus end their desire for an independent nation. Allowing American bombing is simply a ploy to come across as a partner in the fight against terrorism. Of course, for him, terrorism against Kurds is a good thing.

However, Erdogan is opening a new issue for his nation. If Kurds are massacred in Kobani, we can expect the emergence of mass terrorism within Turkey as its Kurdish citizens resort to violence in response to his failure to lead the fight against ISIS. We predict dark violent days for Turkey.

Iraq Knows NO Peace

Perhaps, one day in the future, people in Iraq will experience a complete day without someone getting blown to pieces. I confess there are moments of confusion being able to understand why or how anyone who believes in God or religion is able to proceed to murder innocent men, women and children. Somehow, it is hard to conceive of any God up in the sky who demands murder of the innocent in His name. More suicide bombers in Baghdad, more broken bodies. At this point in time it is simply open season on those who have nothing to do with the government of Iraq, nothing to do with any of the assortment of groups who sincerely are committed to murder and destruction.

I recall that back in the 1950s there were Americans who used to say: “Kill a Commie For Christ.” Although they expressed this silly idea, few, if any, did anything other than shoot off their mouth. Perhaps, it is time for religious fanatics in Iraq to just shoot off their mouths and leave the innocent alive to go to the mosque and pray??

Has Anyone Seen President Obama?

There is something very sad about the current position of President Obama within American society. Regardless of what happens anywhere in the world, he must take the blame. Today, it is Ebola which, according to Fox News is “the greatest threat in the history of America.”but who knows what tomorrow will become “the greatest threat in the history of America.” Oh, there was some minor event termed, the “Civil War” which resulted in the death of over 400,000, but how can that compare with the death of a man in Texas who died of Ebola? There is chaos in the Middle East, mainly deriving from policies of George Bush and the dynamic duo of Cheney and Rumsfeld, but who cares what happened several years ago, just blame it on the black dude in the White House.

President Obama is very careful where he goes these days in the political campaign for control of Congress. I wonder if he wonders why has he become so unpopular? I wonder if he wonders about paths not taken that might have been taken? Perhaps, if during his initial ninety days the focus was upon: dealing with the financial crisis, creating jobs, and making sense for our youth about Student loans. For example, hoiw about allowing them to have refinanced loans at a lower rate?

Perhaps, the thing he most likely regrets is developing a foreign policy in the Middle East and spending time educating Americans about that policy? He never functioned as an educator of Americans, and today he has lost respect among a large portion of the population-conservatives AND liberals!

Wahabbi Is The Problem!

ISIS continues on its murderous path, in Afghanistan, the Taliban are still alive and murdering people, but few Americans understand the force behind these killing groups is none other than our beloved ally, Saudi Arabia. The Taliban was originally created by the Pakistan secret intelligence working with vast amounts of money furnished by Saudi Arabia. The Saudi government is committed to the principles of the Wahabbi sect of the Muslim religion. Wahabbi imams preach the doctrine that all Western ideas are anti-Muslim, and it is the duty of a Muslim to murder these evil forces. The original young men who formed the Taliban had been educated in madrassa schools funded by Saudi Arabia. They were indoctrinated to fight all forms of Western thought and institutions.

Remember, that in 2014 women still cannot drive a car in Saudi Arabia. Bad people have their heads chopped off in Saudi Arabia. Any form of Christian worship is forbidden in Saudi Arabia. Children are taught that Western ideas are those who hate the Muslim religion. Saudi money continues to fund ISIS and other such groups. On one hand, we ask the Saudi government to aid in the fight against ISIS even though this group is being funded by Saudis! America must insist that Saudi Arabia cease any aid to fanatical Muslim groups.

The Saudi government had better remember that if ISIS enters their land, the first to have heads chopped off are leaders of Saudi Arabia!!

Killing Leader Of Bad People Is No Policy

The foreign policy of the United States of America for over a decade has been predicated upon the assumption that if one kills the leader of bad people, the result will be the end of bad people. From George Bush promises to kill Osama bin Laden to President Obama’s joy at killing Osama bin Laden the American people have been assured that if one gets rid of those on the top of terrorist groups the end result is no more terrorist groups. This is an interesting theory, but the facts do not support the theory. From day one of the aftermath of 9/11 there have been promises, actions to kill the leader of bad guys since once he is gone, then… This has always been a THEORY, not a policy supported by evidence. Each day drones go out to spot a bad guy, and then blast him to pieces. The only result of this policy is that another ad guy emerges to take his place.

Terrorist groups contain men and women who believe in ideology based upon hate. Yes, they do follow a leader, but if he is gone, another person will step up to the role of leadership. One cannot defeat ideas with bombs. It is time to end the belief that killing one person ends the group. Sorry, no evidence supports this theory!

Another Beheading-In America!

I must apologize to the Fox Network for attacking their efforts to prevent ISIS from taking over the United States of America. Fox newscasters have led the fight to save this nation from the horrors of ISIS, and terrorist attacks. Wise leaders such as Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz and the entire Republican party have repeatedly warned that it is simply a matter of time before each and Vaughan Food offices, grabbed a woman and proceeded to cut off her head! Yes, right here in God fearing good old America, an American had her head cut off! The man was upset, the man felt his right to work had been denied. After beheading the woman he attacked another one. Fortunately, Mark Vaughan who owned the company was an NRA member who had a gun. He proceeded to shoot the man and end the carnage.

So, what do we learn from this episode? We learn that each and every American must be armed to the teeth. Tomorrow when you get to work, take a hard look at the worker next to you. Is he reliable? Is he a Muslim? Would he cut off your head? If the answer to these question is YES, than go to work on Monday armed to the teeth. Why not shoot this person and prevent mass murder? Just remember, there could be an ISIS member next to you on the train or bus. Kill before you are killed!

Thank God we have Sarah Palin with her weapons of mass destruction!! God, if we only had an NRA member in the White House, we would all be safe!
