As long as the war in Iraq continues, we shall present voices of American soldiers and discuss issues of concern to those compelled to risk their lives.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 yea old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if there are life forms on other plants which think as do members of the current Republican party?

A dream is another word for “hope.”

Some fear change, some have to change their minds.

A dog could never be my best friend.

Best thing about McDonald’s, the morning solitude.

Some smooth tummy before eating.

I pay no attention to the TV while in a restaurant.

People are worried about tomorrow’s weather, me, I only care about today.

Difficult to hold coat and get coffee.

Always forget to hate.

Once Again, Israel-Palestine Issues Remain Issues

It took fifty years to finally resolve the conflict between Cuba and the US, but it is now over sixty years without a resolution of the conflict between Israel and Palestinians. There is no doubt for most of that time Palestinians lacked leadership willing to resolve the conflict, but there are now Palestinians seeking to achieve peace with Israel. Palestine leaders are asking the United Nations to help resolve their problems with Israel. Here are some suggestions:

1. Israel settlements on the West Bank should be consolidated into an area of about five percent of the land.

2. Israel and Palestine would enter into an economic Union to simulate both economies.

3. A Water Authority would be created to handle this important issue. Jordan could join in handling this issue.

4. A new technology University would be created to bring together Palestinians and Israelis.

5. A joint Israel and Palestinian Armed force would be charged with assuring peace on the West Bank.

6. Israel would pay a billion dollars a year to provide homes for refugees returning to the West Bank.

Some concrete steps for peace.

Donald Trump On Whatever

Frankly, there has been an amazing silence from the red headed man who simply knows everything about everyone and when he speaks, those around must stand at attention and listen to his words of wisdom. As I recall, Donald Trump was a fervent supporter of a man named, George Bush. Donald was quick to appear on Fox News in order to support his leader against unfair attacks by those LIBERALS AND SOCIALISTS who inhabit the Democratic Party. Silence is not the ordinary stance of a man who regards himself as God’s gift to humanity. Jeb Bush of the Bush family has decided to investigate the possibility that we Americans might just desire his Bush like knowledge as our next President. Obviously, this did not sit well with Donald since Jeb forgot to check with him.

“The last thing we need is another Bush. Obama has been a terrible President, but Bush likewise was a terrible President. We have two beauties there so I am not a fan of the Bush group.” However, I am certain he is a fan of the Trump group. I hate to tell Donald but not a single important Republican is worried about being fired by Donald. He might just go and build another casino that he can close.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

China, China Daily: “Dead On The Internet”

Sounds like a good place to die.

USA, aol: “Torturers Heroes To Cheney”

At least it shows that Cheney is loyal to his comrades.

Russia, Moscow Times: “”A New Start”

In Putin Russia that means invading a new country.

Sweden, Local: “Snow Shortages Moves Ski Races”

Have you guys considered Siberia, they could use some money.

France, Connexion: “Train Conductors Start Strike”

At least the engineers are working.

Rouble Rouble Stop Dropping In Value

There is no question that President Vladimir Putin remains very popular to the people of Russia. His approval ratings continue to hover in the high eighties. Of course, I live in the United States of America, a land in which the people of this fair land just voted to support the Republican Party whose policies caused a great recession and got us into wars in the Middle East. But, Americans, just like Russians prefer in power those who cause problems than those who might solve them. The Russian Rouble has fallen in value at least fifty percent and continues dropping. Oil prices are now down by fifty percent. The great Vladimir Putin has done NOTHING to make Russian industry an important factor in the economy since he prefers that Russia should depend upon the export of oil. The price for a barrel is now about $55 while it was about $110 a year ago. Putin has infuriated western Europe, he has angered Saudi Arabia by supporting the Syrian leader, Bashar al-Assad, and he has made the United States the leader of imposing sanctions upon the Russian economy.

But, the people of Russia so like this man who has “restored pride” by seizing the Crimea and causing civil war in Ukraine. So, they flock to his banner of stupidity and watch their economy implode. Such is the price of those lacking common sense. I speak from experience, I recall how Americans felt pride to invade Iraq and get those ever disappearing weapons of mass destruction. Follow Putin and destroy the Russian economy. Hey,take a trip to Russia, you now can get 65 Roubles for each dollar – a year ago you would have gotten 30!

Bush Judge Speaks About Presidential Power

Former President George Bush drew upon use of presidential power to make executive decisions twice as many times as the current person in the White House and during the 1980s the sainted and beloved Ronal Reagan allowed millions of Hispanic illegal immigrants to remain in the United States of America. For some strange reason members of the Democratic Party did not seek to charge those Presidents with violation of the United States Constitution nor did they discuss the need to impeach a president, Actually, former President George Bush drew upon an interesting manner of signing bills passed by Congress. He would sign the bill and make it a law but then added some words in which he would offer HIS interpretation as to what the law meant!

Judge Anthony Seward, who was appointed by George Bush has decided to offer his interpretation of the office of the President. He now claims that President Obama’s Executive decision to protect illegal immigrants is unconstitutional even though the man who appointed hid did it more frequently. Oh, Judge Seward has been removed from hearing cases due to his temperament and bias. Gee, I wonder if that bias showed up in his decision!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

To hate makes one a hater.

There are times to close the door on life.

There is the richness that comes from money and that comes from love.

Some believe they are God while praying to God.

Some rub brow, some rub neck when tired.

Some eat with fury.

Some seek life, some Death.

Takes a crisis to make one know who one really is.

Only pick a fight with someone you can beat up.

Some walk with confidence.

Horror In Pakistan!

I confess my ignorance about human life on this planet. Every so often an event will occur which simply makes no sense. Yesterday in Pakistan some Taliban suicide bombers entered a school and proceeded to murder 126 children and adults as well as wound over a hundred. They even burned a teacher to death while his students watched. They were eventually killed by Pakistan soldiers. The event occurred at the Peshawar Army School. I assume the murders were of children whose fathers served in the armed forces. The Taliban already is hailing these killings as an example of what they consider to be serving the cause of the Muslim religion. Please don’t get me wrong, Muslims murder and boast of being religious just as Germans killed 30,000,000 and boasted they were serving God. Over in Asia the Japanese murdered millions and also made clear they were children of God.

I do not understand:

1. How young Muslims can go on a jihad knowing they will be serving in a process that results in the deaths of Muslims.

2. Young Muslims who are attracted to death of Muslims, no, I mean the MURDER OF MUSLIMS.

3. Why at this very moment teenagers are sharing emails about how wonderful it will be to go on a jihad.

I do not understand these people anymore than I will ever completely understand the minds of Nazi murderers who could bash in the head of a baby.

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND!

Greatest Threats In American History

I continually encounter well educated people who at some point in our conversation refer to the “threat” posed by ISIS or the Taliban or al Qaeda to the very existence of the American nation. Naturally, this “threat” is on the minds of those who pose as “experts” on foreign policy. I so enjoy listening to Dick Cheney when he pontificates about the need to torture, sorry, I mean “enhanced interrogation” those who pose a “threat” to the continued existence of America as a nation. He is so serious and convinced that a bunch of men who lack a navy, an air force, tanks or artillery some how threaten the survival of the American society. How about the “threats to American society?”

The Revolutionary War which nearly resulted in failure.

The Civil War which led to the deaths of 500,000? In battles such as at Antietam or Gettysburg the death total was three times the number on 9/11.

The Depression which could have resulted in a revolution.

World War II which resulted in the death of over 400,000. Again, at battles such as Okinawa three times as many were killed than at 9/11.

Oh, and we fought against powerful armies with navies and air forces that matched our own.

So, enough with this expression, “the greatest threat in American history!”

Another Day Of Torture

I don’t know about you but I confess to being tortured out about the topic of Torture in this nation. Just about each day another official, another former member of the Bush administration or the current Obama administration issues a serious, profound comment about how torture has saved the very foundation of our society. They apparently believe that the Bill of Rights has one clause which clearly states that water boarding was in the minds of our beloved Founding Fathers. Actually, my life is currently confronting the torture of:

CIA former or current leaders who insist: We tortured in the name of Jesus Christ, just check the Sermon on the Mount.

You folks just don’t know how we saved your lives and prevented Los Angeles from being blown up by an atomic bomb.

What you liberals do not know is that what we did was simply the same thing done every week at college Fraternity places. Just some good old fun and games.

We know things that you will never know and since you don’t know what we know how can you ever know what we know?

We wrap ourselves in the flag of knowledge that Americans can never be told

IF YOU ONLY KNEW!
