Despite administration denials, Russian ground attack is succeeding
Last week forces allied with Syria strongman Bashar Assad kicked off their offensive with the aid of Russian air support. The administration was quick to proclaim this was going to be a quagmire for the Russians and result in ‘blowback.’ Right on schedule, left wing media began toeing the administration line: Assad’s first big Russia-backed campaign is not going well This, by the way, written by the | Read More »
Russia takes command of fight against ISIS in Syria

Putin of Russia suddenly escalated the stakes in his contest with the West over influence in the Middle East on Wednesday, as Russian pilots carried out their first airstrikes in Syria.

Barack Obama Shoots Messengers Instead of Members of ISIS
Intelligence needs to be free of censorship in order to be, well, intelligent. In order to be distinguishable from propaganda, it has to report results impartially. Bad news cannot be tossed in the garbage. It doesn’t necessarily have to be broadcast to the general public through a bullhorn, but it can’t be deliberately hidden from governmental decision makers. Even more tellingly, it can’t be kept | Read More »
Corbyn is the UK left’s tantrum against Bush and Blair
Jeremy Corbyn on Saturday was the decisive winner of the UK Labour Party leader’s election, an event many of us believe to be great news for the UK Conservative Party. It’s worth taking a moment to look at why this happened, and why this is terrible news for Labour’s electoral chances.
9-12, The Patriot Act and Islamic Terrorism
The United States Government needs to do one of two things in regards to the Post 9-11 existential threat of anti-western terrorism and the Orwell State we have erected to combat it. We can go or we can go Genghis Kahn. Instead, as a result of the coruscating brilliance of The Bright and Shining Won, Barack Obama, we have the operational effectiveness you’d expect from | Read More »

Let us stop pretending that the Iraq War was the Worst Thing Ever.
Stop pretending that the Iraq War was the worst disaster to ever befall America. Or even that it was particularly a disaster at all. At least, under Bush.

The Blood on Barack Obama’s Hands
The warning signs were there in 2009. President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras sought a referendum to change the Constitution of Honduras to allow himself a longer tenure in office. The Honduran Constitution permanently bars multiple terms and it is not an amendable provision of the nation’s constitution. The Honduran Supreme Court ruled that Zelaya had overstepped his bounds and Zelaya sought to stir up civil | Read More »
Iraqi Report: US Special Forces now in direct combat with ISIS in Iraq
As one of my bosses in the Army was fond of saying, “We ain’t got time to do it right but we always got time to do it over.” Now four years after Obama and Hillary Clinton contrived a reason to give our troops the bum’s rush from a won war in Iraq, we are back in combat there. Not just with aircraft but with | Read More »
Jeb Bush attacks Hillary on Iraq
Welcome Media Matters readers. Thanks for the promotion and pageviews. Take a tour of the site, I’m sure you’ll find much more to be offended by. If Hillary Clinton possesses any unique selling propostion beyond proving even a homely woman can sleep her way into power, it is her tenure as Barack Obama’s secretary of state. That seems to be a slender enough reed | Read More »
US troops sharing bases with Iranian led militias in Iraq
Back when the President of the United States was still interested in maintaining US power in the Middle East, we had troops in Iraq who were actually involved in killing terrorists. The most potent weapon against our troops was the roadside bomb that created what was called an “explosively formed penetrator.” This device enabled a relatively primitive and decidedly low-tech weapon to defeat a lot | Read More »
George W Bush patiently explains the facts of life and war to his successor.
George W Bush patiently explained the other day that wars are only won when you have troops actually present. Will this administration start listening?

If President Obama Has No Strategy Yet To Fight ISIS, Why Is He Sending 500 More Soldiers To Fight ISIS?
President Barack Obama could end his Potemkin war against ISIS in one of two ways. He could annihilate the enemy, or he could write off Iraq and Syria. This is a tough leadership decision that a real leader would agonize over. Barack Obama in no way resembles a real leader. He will take the easy wrong over a hard right. Continuing to send additional military | Read More »
Obama 2012: I Ended The War. Obama 2015: Only The USA Patriot Act Can Save Us!
President Barack Obama bragged during his 2012 Reelection Campaign that he ended the war in Iraq. GM alive, Bin Laden dead, Barack Obama 2012! Barack Obama was dismissive when told that threats still remained. He initially described ISIS as “the JV.” For all who would listen he loudly proclaimed a victory for peace. Now that is demanding a peace dividend in the form of reduced | Read More »

Obama official: our Iraq policy is the same as our critics’
The Obama administration has three tried and true ways of dealing with crises. First, they blame others. Now seven years into his regime of shame, Obama is still trying to blame George Bush for everything. Second, they gaslight, that is they tell you against all evidence that something is working. Just this week, the White House claimed that its Iraq policy was working. I mean, | Read More »
