Don’t Get Me Started
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com What’s the worst thing about the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell? It’s even worse than the specter of loyal officers falling on their swords, gritting their teeth and respecting America’s time-honored tradition of civilian command.

Men of great Courage, the United States Military

Thinking Terrifying Thoughts: American Military in the Age of Terror
This is likely to be a long and rambly post, so for that, I beg for forgiveness. And yet, I can’t help put some of these thoughts on… er… pixels, if for no other reason than to clear my own thinking.

Why There is No Longer a “War on Terror” — It’s Jihad, a Just War
Dropped by the wayside, while the Obama Administration pretends to deal with the Arizona Immigration Law, the Deep Horizon Oil Spill, Cap and Trade and convincing Americans socialized healthcare is good for them, is the ongoing War on Terror. Just as he attempts to redefine the issues that affect America’s national security and economic stability, one has to ask, has President Obama successfully redefined the War on Terror? The following | Read More »

Business (of Earmarks) as Usual
In February 2003 my Navy Reserve (SEABEE) Unit was mobilized for duty in Operation Iraqi Freedom. We didn’t actually call it that at the time, it was Desert Storm II, or “Operation Go Find Sean Penn and Whup His Butt Back to Hollywood”.
