Category Archives: Iraq War

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.


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

China, China Daily: “Becoming More Chinese”

We dress from China, we play with technology made in China, now we should learnt to speak Chinese.

Turkey,Hurriyet: Crime Against Humanity”

You got me, which of the hundreds are you referring to?

USA, NY Post: “Free Advice From Notary”

If a millionaire, don’t pay any taxes, that is for poor folk.

Sweden, Local: “Town Hall Set On Fire”

Was Ted Cruz in the neighborhood?

USA, Newsday: “I’m A Sane Gun Owner”

Finally, we found one!

Anyone For Oatmeal?

There is no question that out of the rubble that was once the Soviet Union, a major military power, there has now emerged a new Russian military that is able to wage war. Russia is displaying modern military equipment in Syria, it is demonstrating an ability to organize military action against an enemy. It is clear there is now a new Russian military that is quite effective. However, President Vladimir Putin continues to feel neglected by the world. No American official is hailing his efforts in Syria to destroy enemies of President Assad.

“I don’t understand how the US criticizes Russia’s actions in Syria.” He is scornful of President Obama’s unclear policies of war in Syria. Putin feels these policies reflect a leader who has “oatmeal in his head,” in other words, is simply mush. The US insists that Russia work with it in destroying ISIS while Russia seeks to destroy the other forces which oppose Assad.

To put it simply– there is no clear policy in Syria, and there is no likelihood of any coherent action in the future.

Erdogan, Trump Of Turkey

Turkey,like most nations in the Middle East includes people of various ethnic and religious backgrounds. It is currently led by President Recep Erdogan who leads a Muslim centered Justice and Development Party which seeks to impose greater religious controls in the country. Orhan Pamuk, a Nobel prize winner expressed the views of Turks who oppose the installation of a central government that would stifle freedom. “The electoral defeat enraged Erdogan(his party lost its majority in the legislature. He didn’t succeed in persuading the Kurds to give him their votes for his plan to create a presidential republic.”

Erdogan has aroused hatred of Kurds as the path to gain political power. Suicide bombers recently murdered over a hundred people, and he is using this tragedy as a means of arousing hate, hate against any group, just hate to retain power.

Putin Moves His Queen Chess Piece

Vladimir Putin is a chess player and the game today is taking place in Syria. He has moved his chess pieces -planes, soldiers, missiles –into Syria. He is convinced this show of force will intimidate and defeat groups such as ISIS, but especially Syrians who hate Assad and want him to leave the office of president. It is a big gamble for Putin. One might say, a chess game which is truly–winner take all. What most probably will be the outcome of this chess game?

1. Russian troops will die. That is the bad news. The good news is that in authoritarian Russia, the populace is cowed and will not protest.

2. Russian troops at this moment have high morale. That sense of being in charge will rapidly change to one of being beleaguered.

3. The Russian air bombing simply can not and will not work. This approach to dealing with guerrillas has failed time after time.

4. Most probably at some moment, Putin will force Assad to leave. Putin does not handle defeat very well. Entering Syria is a lose-lose proposition and someone has to take the blame– Assad.


We offer observations of the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.


1. How about one gigantic Benghazi committee encompassing the entire Congress?

2. I await Trump’s plan for Benghazi.

3. I would strongly urge Republicans to check with the nearest mental institution for a new Speaker of the House.

4. Of course, since one does not have to be in Congress to become the Speaker-how about a lottery for the job?

5. My ongoing question is– how did we get in this situation in Congress?

6. Of course, there is always Vladimir Putin for the job-does one have to be a citizen to become the Speaker?

7. Ultimate surprise, Hillary for the Speaker job-then she could supervise more committees to investigate her.

Benghazi Forever And Forever

Let me get this clear–President Bush initiated a war in Iraq that left over four thousand Americans dead. George Bush initiated a war in Afghanistan that resulted in the death of over two thousand. As of this date, no Congressional Committee established to investigate the death of these thousands.BUT, we have had endless committee hearings over the death of FOUR Americans who died in the Libyan city of Benghazi. Frankly,it is doubtful of a hundred members of Congress could locate this city on a map. But, as Congressman Keven McCarthy proudly boasted the Benghazi industry has resulted in a decline of popularity for Hillary Clinton.

Major Bradley Podliska has been terminated from one of these committees because he complained the work was political and of no use. The committee head insisted that this military official will not “blackmail” them into ending work that seeks to protect the American people from the loss of four lives. The six thousand who died are another issue. Their deaths are linked to Republican leaders so forget they ever happened.

Sheriff Carson at OK Corral: “I’m just the sheriff, how about shooting at some women in church?”

Sheriff Carson confronting a robber on the streets: “I think you want one of those guys in uniform”

Sheriff Carson confronting a terrorist: “How about a physical checkup-for free?”

Sheriff Carson as mob approaches down the street: “People keep moving, but don’t crowd up.”

Sheriff Carson in Syria: “I want all of you to only shoot bad people,and I am not bad.”

Sheriff Carson in House of Representatives: “Now ladies and gentlemen, if you pass this bill, there is a free heart transplant waiting for you.”

Time For A Black President?

During the past seven years there has been a non-stop complaint that Barack Obama was: born in Africa, is not really a true American, and he hates America. Well, along comes Rupert Murdoch with the final dagger into the heart of Obama:

Tweet: “Ben and Candy Carson are terrific. What about a real black President who can address the racial divide?”

Finally, we now know that Barack was really a WHITE MAN disguised as a black man! I always suspected that Barack was not who he claimed to be. Remember when he was accused of hanging around with terrorist black ministers? Now, we know that he NEVER loved any white ministers. Now, we know that he was never really black, more like tan.

One problem: Fox News does not like black Presidents. So, can we transform Ben Carson-and Candy Carson–into sort of white on Monday and black the rest of the week folks?

And, the good news is that Ben Carson is really a man of all seasons. He is a doctor, and then he is a sheriff. It would be so great to have a President who confronted a man with a gun in Popeye’s and said: “No, you don’t want me, I think you want the guy behind the counter!” We need leaders like this!

So, Who Should Be Speaker?

The Republican party is having sort of a problem finding someone to serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives. In the spirit of public service we offer some names that might be of interest to these people. Nothing in the Constitution says the Speaker must be a member of Congress.

1. How about bringing back Dick Cheney? He hates better than any Republican in the House.

2. There is nothing unconstitutional about having Ted Cruz hop over to the House for a few hours each day.

3. Carly Fiorina has extensive executive experience, after all she got fired, which certainly qualifies her to head up the mad men of the Republican party.

4. A long shot would be Jon Stewart. He is currently unemployed, he can get people laughing. And, if there is one thing Republicans need is a good laugh.

5. Personally, I like Ben Carson, his level of intelligence certainly qualifies him to join the merry band of ignorant men-and women.

6. Of course, there is always Vladimir Putin, he sure could get some organization and obedience among the wild men of Congress.

7. There are numerous two-bit dictators around Africa to fill the void and they certainly would add some color to the House.

8. Then again, there is always Donald, heck, he could handle the job on a consulting position.

Let’s Investigate Comedy Hour

There would be important news from Washington DC. if the Republican Congress announced they were NOT going to investigate Hillary or Planned Parenthood or the Socialist ideas of Bernie Sanders. So, in the interest of investigation, we offer some issues to be investigated

1.Why the Republican party has problems deciding who will lead them in Congress.

2.Why the New York Knicks have not won an NBA championship in forty years.

3. Why McDonald’s is offering breakfast all day long.

4. The Ben Carson sort of laugh.

5. Whatever happened to Sarah Palin? Is she still alive or is she a prisoner of ISIS?

6.Why the House of Representatives does not have a comedy hour to liven up things.

7. Why did John McCain allow himself to be captured. Donald will be presiding judge, jury and executioner.

8. So, where exactly was Donald Trump during the Vietnam War?

Oh,I forgot,at least one more shot at Benghazi.
