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.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Canada, Toronto Star: “Greatest Gift We Have”

For Democrats, it is none other than Donald Trump

Norway, Norway Post: “Pee Repellant”

Piss on this story.

Sweden, Local: “Is Jesus A Myth”

He sure ain’t a Christian these days.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Need A New Direction”

Boy, do Republicans need this!

Magic Number Is 16!

It is now official –there are fifteen men and one woman seeking to become president. So, the new magic number for Republicans is: SIXTEEN!

Sixteen blind people stumbling through the maze of political ideas.

Sixteen people who believe they are an expert on foreign policy, domestic policy, policy towards Uganda, and a few other nations they could locate on a map.

Sixteen mouths fuming with anger and hate.

Sixteen people engaged in the contest as to who can shout the loudest.

Sixteen people seeking to outdo the other in expressing hatred of Barack Obama.

Fifteen people seeking out shout Donald Trump.

Sixteen people who could not pass a test on American history.

Solution: Why can’t all sixteen be on the ballot?

Republicans On Iran

Members of the Republican party are very upset because Barack Obama has negotiated with some very, very bad people. Where did this guy get the idea that America should engage in discussions and negotiations with evil leaders? Heck, Representative Ed Royce made clear that when the US negotiates with evil doers, “Iran grows stronger, and we will be weaker to respond.”

1. As I recall, Richard Nixon reached out to Communist China, a nation that had killed over 20,000 American soldiers. Look what happened when Nixon helped China become a great industrial nation!

2. As I recall, St. Ronald Reagan, the great tough president, negotiated nuclear agreements with Russian leader, Mikhail Gorbachev and no Republicans accused him of betraying America, let alone Israel.

3. From the beginning of the Cold War in 1946 until its end in the 1990s, EVERY American president negotiated with Communists who proclaimed their desire to end capitalism!

4. In the real world, not the world of Republicans, nations negotiate with one another.

Great News On Terrorist Front

I understand there are doubters who refuse to believe that we are winning the war against terrorism. Just remember, that George Bush took out and watched die the evil leader of world terrorist–one,Saddam Hussein. Notice how the world became safer and more stable once the evil leader of terrorism was no more. Then along came Barack Obama who promised to carry out the George Bush promise that we would take out all the leaders of terrorism in the Middle East. And, he did so take out Osama bin Laden. And, note how the world has become more calm and terrorists seek some place where they could find refuge.

Well, Great News, our drone masters have taken out Mashbin al Fadhi. I am certain you will feel much safe knowing this evil doer can no longer do evil doing. Pentagon: “his death will degrade and disrupt ongoing external operations.”

Safety at last!

Another Dead Muslim Dude

About one-fifth of my life has been spent while some American President has a media conference in which he boasts of killing off some big shot Muslim terrorist leader and thus set in motion the end of terrorism in the Middle East. As I recall, first President Bush promised to track down and kill Osama bin Laden. Then came along the black dude who showed us pictures of the military getting rid of Osama bin Laden. OK, the big honcho was now dead. So, I was informed by my government that once we got rid of the head guy, then…… The “then”part was never made clear to me. I assume they were promising me that once Osama was gone, then…. Then, what?

There is absolutely no evidence in any guerrilla war that getting rid of one top guy leads to a collapse of the entire group. It is time to end this fiasco about killing off leaders and turn our focus on how to turn young people away from terrorist activities. How anyone considered pushing for major job creation programs in the Middle East?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

France, Connexion: “Tunnel Delays”

Not for El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Less Fertilizer Used”

Not in the US Congress!

Sweden, Local: “Fewer Beggars Around”

Actually, there are more than ever Wall Street beggars seeking government handouts!

Norway, Norway Post: “Action On Illegal Guns”

In America, the only “action” is to make them available to all.

UK, Guardian: “Investigate Naked Hair Salon”

As long as Donald Trump is around, hair is never naked.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Right To Be Forgotten”

Sorry, that is against the law when it comes to Putin.

Our Ally, Saudi Arabia Is Upset

Frankly, I never thought to see the day when Israel has become the loving buddy of Saudi Arabia. Both nations oppose the Iran nuclear agreement because Iran is a source of violent Islamic terrorism. According to these buddies in hate, President Obama sold our the course of peace in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia feels betrayed. Let me get this straight:

1. Saudi Arabia has given untold billions to America hating madrassa schools which indoctrinate youth to follow the course of violence.

2. Saudi Arabia has funded thousands of clerics who preach hate of the West and America.

3. Saudi money created the Taliban which has killed hundreds of American soldiers.

4. Saudi Arabia is the original model for beheading people. Oh,they also chop off limbs.

5. Saudi money went to Osama bin Laden.

Isn’t it wonderful that President Obama is being opposed by this symbol of peace-loving democracy!

Silence Of The Imams

Thee was still another bombing attack in a small town near Baghdad and about 80 were killed and dozens were wounded. Just abut every day whether it be in Syria or Afghanistan or Yemen or Tunisia some Islamic terrorist blows him or herself up or sends bombs headed toward a Mosque which is filled with Muslims at prayer.The end result is always the same–dozens dead or wounded.

But, within this constant war against Muslims there is strange silence. I never have seen Muslim clerics organizing a march for peace in these violent Muslim nations. Oh, they get upset at Israel and make demands or utter words of hate. But, where are the Martin Luther Kings in the Middle East? Where is a Nelson Mandela ready to fight for peace. Just a religious silence whose sound is deafening!

Iran Deal Or No Deal

One of America’s leading authorities on foreign policy has weighed in on the recent deal with Iran,and given his past ability to grasp the subtle aspects of conducting negotiations with other nations, it is time for President Obama to reflect on what he claims to have accomplished. Former Governor Rick Perry’s comments should make Obama pause and reflect for a moment. The man who sort of got confused as to which departments are in the Cabinet is dead sure that Obama made a terrible mistake. “What I saw out of the President today, and this is of great consternation to me, I saw a very naive man who does not know how the world works, who cannot put the dots together.”

President Obama was working with five other important nations who, I assume, have some grasp as to how the world works. Frankly, I doubt if Perry could even locate Iran on the map. His comment is that of just about every man or woman seeking the Republican nomination. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if one of them could actually offer an ALTERNATIVE PLAN! Oops, I forgot, Donald Trump wants to lead soldiers into battle.

Bibi Says NO, NO, NO!

It is quite apparent that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the chief foreign policy advisor for Republicans. After all, he “speaks for Israel.” Of course, he has never captured more than 30% of the Israel vote. He made clear the agreement with Iran was a “disaster” that would change the world and lead to permanent war. An assumption of the current Israel government is that a permanent state of war is the best path to peace. UK Foreign Minister Philip Hammond expressed the frustration of many: “The question you ask yourself is what kind of a deal would have been welcomed in Tel Aviv. The answer of course is that Israel does not want any deal with Iran.”

The basic question to pose Netanyahu is what exactly is his alternative. Ordinarily, he cries out for war against Iran. So,what would occur if US planes bombed nuclear sites in Iran?

1.Hezbollah would send its 30,000 missiles towards Israel.

2. Assume that 95% are shot down. That leaves about 5,000 missiles hitting Israel.

THAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE THAT BIBI NEVER MENTIONS!
