If We Have Defense Budget Cuts, What Should We Keep?
How many of us knew one day we would fight two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Let’s face it, if we never thought that one day we would witness a massive economic collapse on Wall Street, then it is indeed a safe bet to say that future is unpredictable. So, it’s always safe to err on the side of caution. It’s easy to cut down | Read More »
What kind of crap is THIS?
Sorry for the language, but damn Just saw this little blurb about “The Pentagon” lifting restrictions about taking pictures of our deceased service men and women “if the families of casualties agree.” Like they’ll be asked Like they’d agree if they were Like my current CinC keeps promises? Note to Obama; first damn time you let HuffPo or anyone else use pics of my KIA | Read More »
NDCF Chair condemns Scott Murphy’s anti-military stance.
…and it’s a NGO defense-oriented conservative think-tank that’s been calling for the conversion of American transportation to alternative fuels since at least 2003. Its chairman, retired military veteran James Martin, writes: On behalf of NDCF supporters who proudly represent all branches of the military, it strikes me that Mr. Murphy’s writings at his alma mater, Harvard University, when he was editor of a university magazine, | Read More »
Does NY-20’s Scott Murphy (D) still think that the military’s a bunch of racists?
(H/T: Hot Air) That’s a serious question, because he signed his name to an article saying precisely that back in college. The quote goes: The military not only discriminates on the basis of sexual preference, but on the basis of sex and race. Women are not allowed to serve in combat even if they are physically superior to males who do serve in combat. And, | Read More »
How Iraq was Won
Give ya a hint, it wasn’t all flag officers and politicians Every day, NCOs in Humvees, junior officers from Captain on down were dealing with the local police and Iraqi army units one on one. The Staff Sergeants, Gunnys, and corpsmen went face to face with local people and called them out. They coached, encouraged, and shamed when necessary. They went into dangerous areas not | Read More »
More Cuts Next Generation Weapon Systems
From Strategy Page: Heavy Bombers Hit The Twilight Zone by James Dunnigan February 17, 2009 The U.S. Department of Defense has told the U.S. Air Force that there will be no more money for developing a new heavy bomber. Not for a while, anyway. That will slowdown the decade long air force effort to get a new heavy bomber, but won’t stop it. Since the | Read More »
Loose Lips Sink Ships (Feinstein D-CA torpedoes Pakistan)… why Democrats cannot be entrusted with US Security
It would appear that the following Posters need to be put up all over Washington DC to remind Democrats that “Loose Lips Can Cost Lives” and while the old saying used to also have a “Loose Lips Sink Ships” variety – today it is “Loose Lips Will Ground Predators.” And to think these fools think it will be fine-and-dandy to have Trials for Terrorists in | Read More »

Teachin’ ‘Em Right
An honor guard of the Canadian Army was marching at a memorial service in Belgium. The video is of a little Belgian boy watching them go by, and he does something that the Canadians respond to in kind. It’s nice to see someone teaching this child properly. (Hat tip: Dave In Texas)
Obama’s Stealth Defense Cuts
Late last night we asked “Is Obama preparing to cut the defense budget?” All we had to work with at the time were personal observations by some who had seen a Fox News report that the president had asked the Pentagon to slash defense spending by 10%. The story had not yet been posted on the FNC website at that late hour.
Wounded Vets Walk Out on Onaugural Ball
Tuesday night marked the latest in a series of missteps with the military for a new president (whose need for on-the-job training is painfully obvious) and/or his supporters: An inaugural ball honoring U.S. military veterans ended in a kerfluffle as several veterans walked out when a musical act’s attempt at humor backfired. During the Heroes Red, White & Blue Inaugural Ball honoring the nation’s veterans, a | Read More »
Obama and the Democrats will bring ‘change’ to the military. Is it ready? Does it even matter?
A possible breakthrough in the stalled two front culture war is developing. The debate over if gays should be allowed to serve openly in the military began back in President Clinton’s first days in office, and according to President-elects Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, Obama is prepared to end the compromise of “don’t ask don’t tell” and spearhead a new offensive for the secularist’s drive into | Read More »
The Smell of Success Against Global Terror in 2008
The indispensable Bill Roggio reports on the State of Jihad for 2008. Iraq smells like roses. The counterinsurgency doctrine written by Petraeus and implemented by Odierno succeeded in turning around a situation that seemed hopeless two years ago. Green Zone control was turned over to Iraq this week. Al Qaeda has been crushed. Muqtada al Sadr is still going to Ayatollah school in Iran, while | Read More »

Credit Due: President Bush continues to keep us safe
With Mumbai attacks fresh on everyones mind and, if anything positive can be made of it, maybe it will be a jarring eye opener of just what is at stake with the war on the West. But one constant theme has been played through it all from the Bush administration and that theme has been a very proactive, security first, bad guys last, approach to | Read More »
