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.

Chairman Rumsfeld On Foreign Policy

Don Rumsfeld is certainly among the world’s great experts on conduct of foreign policy. His brilliant diplomacy in Iraq and Afghanistan remain as textbook examples of how to transform peace into war and how to handle complex issues once a war is over–at least for the moment. Rumsfeld blasted the policies of Barack Obama in Afghanistan and defended President Hamid Karzai. Don believes it was the ineptness of Obama that angered the Afghan president. “By golly, they have trashed Karzai publicly over and over.” In the view of Don Rumsfeld a “trained ape” could have negotiated much more effectively than the president.

Let’s examine the record:

1. After defeating the Taliban with the aid of Northern Afghans, the dynamic trio of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld decided not to pay anymore attention and shifted attention to Iraq.

2. As Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld could have insisted that American forces continue their encirclement of Osama bin Laden in a cave rather than leaving for other important business such as find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

3. No effort was made to develop a comprehensive program of creating an effective economy in Afghanistan. This failure set the stage for rise of the Taliban–again.

4. It was the dynamic trio which allowed corrupt leaders to take over Afghanistan including one, Hamid Karzai.

Heck, an untrained ape could have done better.

Oh, about Iraq…. and that diplomacy…

Mafia Out Earns McDonald’s

There is good news for members of the Republican party in the United States of America. New reports from Italy describe the work of wonderful wealthy job creators who now employ over 60,000 people as part of the south Italy Mafia or Ndrangha(Greek for loyalty). These diligent men work over time in order to ensure the public has access to products that enable the average person to benefit from private enterprise in action. The Mafia rejects any government handouts and does not allow its employees to become involved in Obama Healthcare. To accept such government control would interfere with the Constitutional rights of members of the Mafia — it violates their religious freedom!

The Mafia earned $80 billion last year which is more than comes into McDonald’s. I trust the United States Supreme Court will support the right of the Mafia to practice their business without being compelled to force employees to engage in GOVERNMENT health care!!It is up to prostitutes to decide if they wish to seek sex protection and no GOVERNMENT has a right to interfere with their First Amendment Rights!!

Mitch McConnell TV Star

Senator Mitch McConnell is the leader of Republicans in the United States Senate and he is running for re-election in the state of Kentucky. He already has become an Internet star by providing the social media of a portrait of him attempting to smile which comes across as a man with a tooth ache unable to open his mouth. He has become the object of derision. So, what exactly is new about a Republican who is the object of laughter?

To highlight his media prowess, his campaign has released a video which depicts his University of Kentucky basketball team being defeated by the Duke basketball team. The ad proclaims: “It was intended to honor our great Kentucky basketball team.”

In the Republican fantasy world, losing the battle is the object.

Westboro Church Clueless

Adherents of the Westboro Baptist Church are among the most interesting people in America. They are the only group that makes members of the Tea Party come across as logical and loving folk. Church members led by Fred Phelps have roamed the United States for years appearing at funerals of those who died in the Afghanistan or Iraq war with banners proclaiming their special brand of hate and anger. “God Hates Fags” or “Thank God For Dead Soldiers” are among the more pleasant of their banners of hate. They hate any and all aspects of modern life, but are not articulate as to the world they desire. Counter Demonstrators turned out yesterday and held aloft a banner that read: “Sorry For Your Loss.” Naturally, to Westboro folk, those are fighting words of anger toward them.

A spokesperson, Steve Drain, made clear their response to a statement of compassion: “I just don’t even know what they mean by what they’re saying.” The initial words of intelligence from this group.

Foreign Policy Of Fight To Finish!

I do listen to words of advice from some members of the Republican party regarding what now to do about the situation in the Crimea and Ukraine. Of course, not a single one of them has the slightest idea as to the location of these areas in the world other than they are close to Russia. Fox News with its collection of well fed men who apparently have never fought anyone physically, are hot to trot about standing up to Vladimir Putin. They all want to make clear they are not some wussie like the black dude in the White House. Naturally, the pert cute blonds who pose as authorities on foreign policy are ready to fight to the last member of our armed forces is dead because beloved Crimea is first in their hearts and souls.

The voices of we need to do more and more to make clear to Russia that any attack on any nation will be met with the full force of the United States of America. I am a bit confused. When Russia invaded the country of Georgia–our then president George Bush did not send military forces and not a peep from Fox News or the Republican party.

Of course, if President Obama dispatched planes to Ukraine, the howl of anger from Fox News and the Republican party would be heard in the Crimea!! The Republican mantra is that Democrats should fight wars while Republicans should cut taxes and there will be peace in the world.

Legacy Of George Bush Lives On And On

Ah, the glory days of March, 2003 when beloved President George Bush proclaimed his desire to lead America on a great crusade to end tyranny in the Middle East and bring democracy to the people of Iraq.
At this time in Iraq, women enjoyed equal rights with men and served in business roles as well as doctors and lawyers. Along came George with his warriors to bring “democracy” to the women of Iraq. America assisted in the rise to power of Nouri Maliki who became prime minister. Now, this prime minister of democracy is pushing through a new law, Jaarafi Status Law which assists Iraq females. Among its provisions are”

1. Forced sex by husband is Kosher.

2. Marry off 9 year old daughter is OK.

3. Dad gets kids in divorce. Who else?

4. Beat the hell out of your wife–why not, you are upset?

5. Don’t leave house you females unless male says you can!

According to the Maliki government: “there are those who disagree with this law and we don’t care about them because they are against Islam.” Safia al Fahail, in Parliament: “this law is humiliating to women.”

Thanks so much, George.

Mother Russia Wants To Protect Her Children

I must confess not being able to understand why the American government or the European Union does not agree that Mother Russia has a responsibility to take care of her flock of children. Our dear and beloved leader, Vladimir Putin, was forced to abandon his work with disabled people who were attempting to hold an Olympic Winter event and rush off to protect his fellow Russians who reside in the country of Ukraine or at his naval base in the Çrimea. Vladimir is simply a devoted son who cares for his fellow brothers and sisters who reside in the Fascist state of Ukraine and fear for their lives. Not only is Vladimir concerned, but about 20,000 Russian youth have rushed from their homes and sped to the Crimea without even waiting for orders from President Putin to make this effort. They also want to protect Russian people who are threatened by the Fascists in the Ukraine.

What else could Putin do but mobilize his armed forces on the border of Ukraine after learning that the Ukraine has accepted 50,000 volunteers to threaten his 120,000 men on the border with their tanks and artillery and air force? And, what does the West do? THEY threaten the peaceful people of Mother Russia with violence. God Bless Vladimir Putin for saving his fellow Russian citizens in the Ukraine and God Bless this man of peace!

America Vs Human Rights

The vat majority of those who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 regarded his victory as one that would result in respect for human rights and the end of brutality in prisons containing those charged with crimes during fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan. It is clear that was a hope deferred. The United Nations human rights committee issued a damning report on the state of human rights in the USA. Among its targets is the infamous Guantanamo prison which still contains 150 human beings that the American government views as risks. It countered questions raised with the argument that detainees in this prison are being kept there “lawfully based under international and American law.” Just read the Bill of Rights which specifically states that people can be kept in jail for years without charges of crime being brought nor an actual trial. The Obama administration argues “continued lawful detention is necessary to protect against a continuing threat.”

OK, fair enough. But, if there was never a specific charge and never a trial to ascertain if the charge was viable, how does anyone know if Mr. X IS the guy who committed the crime? To claim “we think he is”is NOT in accordance with the US Constitution. The unresolved question is: will this damn prison ever close??

The Rise Of Sharia

It was in march, 2003 that President Bush demanded war with Iraq in order to prevent Weapons of Mass Destruction to reign down on America and destroy our nation. He also promised that with victory, the democratic rights of people in Iraq would be restored. Under the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein women had equal rights and were free to enter any occupation and decide their own lives. Along came the Americans with democracy and peace. Yes, Saddam was an evil, a cruel, a sadistic ruler, but at least the women of Iraq had the semblance of equality at a level not found in Saudi Arabia, one of America’s allies in the fight for democracy.

America “won” the war in Iraq. It enabled the Shiites to gain power. During the past year thousands have died as a result of terrorism–the terrorism that General Petraeous ended. A new law approved by the Shiite Cabinet would allow girls from age 8 to marry. Women would be forbidden to leave home without permission of husband, and they would be compelled to have sex if hubby demanded. Oh, hubby could have more than one wife.

I assume the women of Iraq are happy America came to free them from sexual freedom.

I Reserve The Right…

Each day I give a blessing to God that he has made certain that America is defended by his chosen son, Ted Cruz, and the brave men and women of the Tea Party. These brave souls have been fighting to preserve the right of every God fearing decent Christian in America to have the right to decide whether he or she has to serve the pervert gays and lesbians. I thought it might be beneficial to list the rights which every Christian is entitled to in the United States of America:

1. I reserve the right to look you in the eye and decide that you are a gay and lesbian and then refuse any service requested.

2. I reserve the right to not pay income taxes since my religion forbids supporting a government that hates Jesus Christ.

3. I reserve the right to shoot anyone whose gaze toward me sends a chill down my back.

4. I reserve the right to have those with black skins walk on the other side of the street. Check the Constitution if you doubt this right!

5. I reserve the right to insist that teachers who teach my children have a white skin and are of the Christian faith.

6. I reserve the right to live in a neighborhood with those of my religious faith.

7. I reserve the right to have the power to do whatever any right I want insists that I do.
