Obama Vs. McChrystal: Every Picture Tells a Story, Don’t it?
So, here’s the rub from the UK Telegraph: In London, Gen McChrystal, who heads the 68,000 US troops in Afghanistan as well as the 100,000 Nato forces, flatly rejected proposals to switch to a strategy more reliant on drone missile strikes and special forces operations against al-Qaeda.

Obama: “If McChrystal Was a Gay, Tax-Evading Liberal, He Could Have All the Troops He Wanted.”
Obama has refused to quickly approve a request from his commanders for a major troop build-up in Afghanistan, insisting first on a full vetting of the current strategy. Democrats vetting military strategy? That’s tantamount to Courtney Love vetting your baby sitter. Frightening doesn’t even begin to cover it. I’m not real impressed with the Democrats and their vetting skills. Call me picky, but didn’t they | Read More »
AMERICAN MILITARY INTERVENTION IN CENTRAL AMERICA?
Sounds like a headline from the 1980’s. Honduras is a peaceful democratic country where I have worked and visited numerous times, as I have neighboring Nicaragua. Nicaragua is different, in its culture, climate, people — and in its history of revolutionary violence. Venezuela is all together different from Honduras and Nicaragua and from other poor Latin American countries — a nation that would be rich, | Read More »
Apocalypse Now!!! or Animal House. The anti-war lefts hypocrisy
It appeared to everyone that the anti-war left that geared up in 2003 to bring the troops home were young engaged and serious people. It is now evident that was not true at all. We had old hippies from the 60’s and 70’s who gathered together with jobless addled youngsters to “fight the system. They were colorful and forceful and they were going to bring | Read More »

Just another openly Gay Marine Captain Battalion Commander, err, actually just another escaped mental patient who has never served in any branch of the military
Thanks to This Ain’t Hell for chasing this nutcase down. Remember Iraq Veterans Against the War, the anti-war political theater group that once starred Jesse MacBeth, the fraudulent Army Ranger and supposed Iraq War veteran who told lurid stories of the 200 senseless murders he committed as an Army Ranger in Iraq, or would have committed if he actually were an Army Ranger instead of | Read More »
Dumb Power or Chicago style politics – Obama now claims that releasing detainee photos would “inflame anti-American opinion”
Dumb Power or Chicago style politics – Obama now claims that releasing detainee photos would “inflame anti-American opinion” So the White House just figured out that their planned release of more photos would “inflame anti-American opinion” and would “impact the safety of our troops.” Thank you captain obvious.
