It’s a question that I always wondered about: Why do men, go back again and again to war? I’ve heard countless stories on Vets being injured, and wanting to go back to their unit.
Sebastian’s opinion, is that the men form bonds, that NO one can match when they come home. By his reasoning, going shopping for baby diapers, is no match for the adrenaline rush while under fire, with a small unit of men, who form the most perfect emotional union ever experienced on the planet.
He makes it sound like the sweetest drug on earth.
And certainly, this war, more than any other war, is being fought by a very small percent of men, who keep going back:
Since the U.S. went to war in Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003, about 2.5 million members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and related Reserve and National Guard units have been deployed in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, according to Department of Defense data. Of those, more than a third were deployed more than once.
In fact, as of last year nearly 37,000 Americans had been deployed more than five times, among them 10,000 members of guard or Reserve units. Records also show that 400,000 service members have done three or more deployments. Beyond that, far more soldiers in this all-volunteer military have been back for two, three, four or five tours, and the long-term impact on hearing and from traumatic brain injuries caused by improvised bombs will be felt for years.
Nobody Thinks, there is something missing here.
Not only are they coming back and being miserable, they are committing suicide at alarming rates. More than 69 percent of veteran suicides were among individuals aged 50 years or older, the VA reported.
Feb 1 (Reuters) – The most extensive study yet by the U.S. government on suicide among military veterans shows more veterans are killing themselves than previously thought, with 22 deaths a day – or one every 65 minutes, on average
Nobody Thinks there is a lot more to this: After all, the Vets from WWII didn’t come back and commit suicide or even WANT to go back to the killing fields. What is different about today?
FIRST: While we were attacked on 9/11, Bush’s little Foghorn speech on ground zero was NOTHING compared to the rallying cry of FDR. It was okay to be patriotic then. Not anymore. We had to get the U.N. permission….that took a long time.
Not to say that Bush wasn’t loved by the troops, but the media was full of “How we deserved to be attacked on 9/11.”
Everyone knows, but nobody says, these volunteers were mostly from conservative families.: Patriots answering the call.
SECOND: Unlike WWII where the men came home after a great victory, the country was bursting with confidence and opportunity, and the men came home, married their sweethearts, and along came the baby boomers.
They had…one thing that our boys don’t have—-Hope, and Victory.
Where’s our victory in Iraq or Afghanistan? Obama has let it all go. And Bush’s silence is also, to me, unforgivable.
If George W. was a patriot, he would be going on TV shows like Bill Clinton and be fighting mad.
(But, then, there’s Jeb’s push for the White House, isn’t there?)
The Military is now filled with officers who are liberal hacks.
I can see a bit more of Sebastian’s points. Our men come back, after being able to be “men” with other ‘men’ and they come back to this liberally infested politically correct— “Don’t’ offend gays, women, Muslims, or immigrants” —–And by the way, here’s your job at McDonalds.
And then…there’s the wonderful VA. They are not getting care, so they just kill themselves.
Sebastian ends with how in HIS mind, the men want to go to war, because of the bonding, and the adrenaline. He wants to find a way to stop that.
But maybe the battlefield, is the only place left where men can be themselves, feel their own worth, feel like they are making a difference? They can’t at home.
And that won’t stop until you go back to the way things were before: To an America not run by dictators, and globalists—and where America is a dirty that the Commander-in-Chief has to keep lying about.
Marriage, patriotism, a free market economy, good medical care, …and most importantly—Hope. Obama has sapped most all the hope out of this country, and to most of us, it’s almost too painful to watch.
But, it’s not just us that is suffering from the liberals—Look what is happening in Australia:
So…why do men go BACK to war? Is it because they are full of some testosterone maniacal need to kill? Or is it because, there is simply no other place on the planet that makes sense to them?
Senior Airman, Brian Kolfage is a triple-amputee veteran of the War in Iraq. He is a tremendous hero and a patriot of the highest order. This letter he wrote to Obama has gone viral.
He shames the man with the truth of what it is to be…a real leader. (Somebody send this to Timmy Geithner.)
This is one of the most important letters that you might ever read. PLEASE…keep passing it around.
My Open Letter to Obama.
I nearly died in a war that you and most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it’s something that warriors like myself have zero control over. I joined to serve my country and to better my life. I’ve seen things that you could never imagine, and they have made me the person I am today.
Mr. Obama, even though we share extreme opposite views, we have one thing in common, we both attended school in Hawaii. However, that’s where the similarities end. You see, as you attended your exclusive, private school, I would ride my bike to Kaimuki High school in one of the roughest areas in Hawaii every morning and would ride past Punahou, the exclusive private school you attended. I would notice the Bentleys, Maserati’s, and fancy foreign cars that all the kids were dropped off in; wow it must have been extremely rough in Hawaii living that life, right? I could only imagine what it was like to have that kind of money. Fortunately for you, not many people are aware of the school and the upper class citizens who attended it. The tuition to attend your exclusive, private school was more than it cost me to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Arizona. You talk a big game when it comes to financial inequality, yet I’m quite sure you have no idea what it’s truly like to have sacrifice. You were one of the elitist children in Hawaii.
After High School, we each chose very different paths. You were able to attend Ivy League schools, and I sought out a military career to in hopes of earning a degree. What we have in life as children usually sets the tone for what we will face later in life that will make us successful. I worked to get where I am today, and YOU WERE HANDED IT….Mr. Inequality.
I volunteered to go to Iraq on both of my deployments, and the second time I begged to go even after I wasn’t selected, which ultimately got me placed on the team where I would lose both legs and my dominant arm. I’ve never asked myself was losing 3 limbs in a war worth it, even though many Americans were against it.
I am frequently reminded of the many young Iraqi children who would beg me for water, food, and toys while I was stationed in Iraq. Children, who in all aspects made the poorest of poor American children look rich. You have no idea what it really means to be poor. It’s laughable that you, who would have no idea what it means to be poor would so frequently play the inequality card.
While I was in Iraq, our mission was to liberate the Iraqi citizens from a tyrant and that’s what we did. Never forget, it was your people who sent us there, like the Clintons, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi & Carl Levin. However, since the day you busted onto the scene you’ve been talking about ending the war and pulling the troops out, not understanding the blood sweat and tears that so many Americans and Iraqi’sinvested. And with complete disregard for every life sacrificed, every limb lost, and every broken family, you bailed on our mission to pursue an agenda that was completely centered on your re-election in 2012. If you didn’t bail on Iraq you were worried that you may not get re-elected and that’s a fact. Just before elections on Oct 11, 2012 you said “Al Qaeda is on the run and Osama bin Laden is dead.” Look at Iraq now, they are in shambles and the Al Qaeda flag is flying freely. Clearly, you’re unfit for duty as a Commander-in-Chief. You put your own agenda ahead of America’s agenda, and now you have single-handedly ruined and destroyed nearly everything we gained in Iraq. It clearly means nothing to you, because the only thing that you’ve personally invested in that country was a promise to bail on them. However, people like me gave limbs, friends have died, and we’ve watched families destroyed by war’s aftermath.
I’m not placing blame on you for the war, I’m placing blame on you for destroying what we’ve worked so hard to build. You’re not a leader, you’re a community organizer. A leader would have stood up regardless of the situation and put America’s agenda first and that is ensuring a secure Iraq even after 10 years of war. But, you placed Barack first, just as Robert Gates confirmed in his new book. I can’thelp but think of those poor kids who I gave water and toys to 11 years ago. They’re probably 15 or 16 years old now, and I can only imagine what it’s like for them to have their nation being torn apart yet again; all because of your poor leadership qualities. Regardless of why we went to Iraq, its water under the bridge. We went there, we waged war, and we not only owed it to our KIA’s but we owed it to the citizens of Iraq. We invaded their country and turned it upside down, and you bailed on them. You bailed on our soldiers and you’ve wasted every death and every limb, it’s all for nothing. And to make matters worse you blame others for your failures.
You’re just another elitist rich thug who’s pretended to live the rough life growing up in the inner-city. You’re only worried about your own agenda and furthering your party instead of taking care of Americans. Your inability to be a leader at some of the most critical points has caused both of our wars to fail. You’ve been a joke to most of our veteran community and we have no faith in your ability to lead.

I can’t think of anything more uplifting than that moment when the soldier coming home from war gets to meet his baby. (both of them.)
Nobody Gets Email:
Here’s something I was alerted to in an email that is not being reported about much. It seems, when Japan’s Fukushima exploded, our Navy went to the rescue, even though, we must assume with the technology of today, both countries knew the men and women on board the USS Ronald Reagan would be sacrificing their lives:
From the Washington Post;
At least 70 have been stricken with some form of radiation sickness, and of those, “at least half . . . are suffering from some form of cancer,” their lawyer, Paul Garner, told The Post Saturday.
“We’re seeing leukemia, testicular cancer and unremitting gynecological bleeding requiring transfusions and other intervention,” said Garner, who is representing 51 crew members suing the Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the Fukushima Daiichi energy plant.
Even as the Reagan was steaming toward the disaster, power-company officials knew the cloud of steam they were releasing — in order to relieve pressure in the crippled plant — was toxic, the lawsuit argues, a claim that has also been made by the Japanese government.
“And then we couldn’t go anywhere. Japan didn’t want us in port, Korea didn’t want us, Guam turned us away. We floated in the water for two and a half months,” until Thailand took them in, she said.
“I was standing on the flight deck, and we felt this warm gust of air, and, suddenly, it was snowing,” Cooper recalled of the day in March 2011 when she and scores of crewmates watched a sudden storm blow toward them from the tsunami-torn coast of Fukushima, Japan.
So…was this Japan’s way of getting back at us for Hiroshima? Or— was this Obama’s suggestion of a cruel payback to conservatives and the military he so blatantly dislikes?
And yet today, we are talking about a mall shooting. The mall shooting might be used in Obama’s speech next week, but I can guarantee you, this incident will NEVER be mentioned by the White House.
Our men and women of the military deserve better.
(Thanks to Anthony)
Robert Gates, the retired Secretary of Defense, has come out with a memoir that will be attacking Obama and his time spent under his command. Obama all along, Gates said, thought the whole surge in Iraq and Afghanistan was a failure, yet he did it anyway. Al-Qaeda now takes back the country of Iraq, and all our men and women died for nothing.
But, to Obama, that’s just not his problem. It’s Bush’s.
Gates came out against Joe Biden even more. Personally, I don’t think he goes far enough. After Obama got his new toy as “Commander in Chief” he really stuck it to our military. He made the “rules” of engagement so ludicrous that our guys were sent into war without even being able to protect themselves. And yet, our good man and women, the best of us all…did what they were told and succeeded despite the incompetent “commander in chief”.
Obama is not fit to run a country, let alone a military.
One of the things that our founders did not foresee was that not all future Presidents would have the war knowledge of a George Washington. I can see why they gave the title to Washington, who had lead men into battle at every chance. And even John Adams, while not the military man that Washington was, studied military history day and night. From the War Office in Philadelphia, Adams, Harrison, Rutledge, Sherman and Wilson, literally ran the Revolutionary war. The only military history Obama has studied was the Communist Manifesto. On top of that, Obama is not only our first ‘black’ President, he is our most feminine one.
This from the Washington Post:
Gates was a backer of a substantial troop increase for Afghanistan early in Obama’s first term, while Biden argued for a smaller counter-terrorism mission in the country. Leveling one of the more serious charges that a defense secretary could make against a commander in chief sending forces into combat, Gates asserts that Obama had more than doubts about the course he had charted in Afghanistan. The president was “skeptical if not outright convinced it would fail,” Gates writes in “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War.”
Gates also reveals Obama’s hatred for General Petraus, and Nobody Knows if Obama did not use the NSA to spy on the good general emails for the sex scandal that brought him such shame, in which he had to resign.
Gates evidently said he almost quit while working for Obama, and Nobody Knows why he waited until now to tell the people what was going on before this, even though he knew the whole time, that our men and women were losing their lives for a cause that the President didn’t even take seriously.
(Okay, pension, treason…he was scared….)
Obama may not like war, but he loves to tell everyone that he is “the commander in chief” and Nobody Wonders, how many veterans who fought in Iraq would love to drop the President at the front of the lines in Kabul to show that he is as worthy as George Washington to inherit that command.
Maybe we should reconsider making Presidents top Commanders-in-Chiefs of our armed forces, because when you have a President who has never been on the battlefield, he tends to muck it up.
It’s no accident that Eisenhower brought forth the longest peacetime in our country’s history. Our founders gave the title of Commander-in-Chief to the executive because Washington had done so much to deserve it. What they didn’t see coming, was a future Barack Hussein Obama.
You know what George Washington would have done to Obama don’t you?
I bet this is just the start…Will we be hearing from more top military men who have served under Obama? Nobody Knows…but we can hope.
Have YOU heard about this? Obama is firing all the top nuclear generals on trumped-up charges. He has also fired 16 Naval commanders. And then there’s that missing nuke.
What missing nuke you say? I don’t know…where is it?
While we are all shouting about losing our health care, maybe we should be watching the left hand of Obama, master of chaos, who took great advantage of Benghazi and the shutdown to get rid of all top commanders who would not obey him.
Obama is driving a death knife into our military. Firing top commanders for daring to be appalled at Obama’s callous sacrifice of our men in Benghazi’s is something we can expect from this egotistical maniac. But firing our top nuclear generals? What? Did they refuse to nuke America if so ordered?
Come on…Obama’s sociopathic nature is naked to the core. If you haven’t seen by now that he really doesn’t like America, and wants to destroy and “transform’ it, then I want to know where you work, because I want to work there too.
He is lining up HIS generals—-
From the Blaze:
“Obama will not purge a civilian or political appointee because they have bought into Obama’s ideology,” Vallely said. “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into fast and furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”
And although I just discovered this bit about some ‘missing’ nukes tonight, evidently some bloggers were trying to get out this impeachable information:
This from therightwingextremist:
Just this week some of our nuclear warheads were moved out of their secret hiding place in a Texas Air Force base (Dyess AFB) …these nukes were taken with no one officially taking responsibility or formal possession of them …these nukes were taken by a black ops team and the only thing that was disclosed was that these nukes were headed for South Carolina- The next day South Carolina US Senator Lindsay Graham gave a speech and threw out as just a for instance that if the USA didn’t bomb Syria for the Israeli’s then it was very possible that Charleston Harbor could be nuked …the timing of Graham’s speech talking about a possible nuclear attack should congress vote no on the Syrian questions, could not be purely coincidence but there is more…
- There is a month-long training exercise scheduled to start any day and go for the next 30 days …what are the odds?
He goes on…..
- Would the USA purposely detonate a nuclear bomb on its own soil against its own people? Isn’t something like this a big enough reason for some honor bound military leader to step forward and spill his/her guts on this whole cooked up fiasco?
The military are now being asked if they would fire on American citizens. That’s a fact being reported everywhere. I suggest they all say —-“Oh sure Chief…You’re the boss!” And when the time comes…and the order comes from up above, don’t do it.
If the tyrant can lie…so can you.
Nobody Knows where the missing nukes have gone to, but Nobody DOES Know that Obama has only just begun to scare us all.
None of us know, with all the damage that Obama is doing to the country, if we will be attacked again on 9/11. And tomorrow, because of his colossal mistakes, Americans will be waiting for an attack, which would surely give Obama his go-ahead sign to start another big war in the Middle East.
I saw this commercial on Conservative Video’s and thought of all the 50,000 or so men who suffered debilitating injuries going to war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of them were bought home,, and discarded. We’ve all seen these boys in our neighborhoods, trying desperately to hold onto their pride. They are coming home to a country that is falling apart. It’s hard for a anyone to get a job nowadays, let alone a returning veteran with a disability.
It’s one of the reasons, so many of them commit suicide. These men WANT to work. They are proud.
This video expressed to me, even thought it’s a beer commercial, the bravery, the noble courage, the real men of America that serve in our military. Their ‘commander-in-chief’ has taken the treasure of our fine men and women who serve, and treated them basically like garbage. He just signed into law a cut in their pay. But this commercial shows, that we all must reach out to them now, more than ever.
God bless the men and women of our armed forces.
It’s hard being a civilian under Obama, I can’t imagine what it’s like to serve in the military under him…can you?
This week we put Dennis Rodman up against the Pine Bluff Swat Team.
Let’s take Dennis first just because, nobody smokes a cigar in earrings quite like Dennis. It seems Dennis just loves hanging out with his favorite toy boy, Kim Jong Un. Despite the fact that the man is one of the most dangerous psychological maniacs on the planet, Dennis…loves him. And that makes you wonder about the sex between the two, which Dennis is desperately trying to cover up by telling everyone what a good family man Kim Jong Un is. Dennis is also threatening Obama to talk to him about his lover. Wow. Give a gay a match and they torch you with a flame gun every time.
Dennis is the quintessence of the fact that there is an American absurdity when it comes to how sport figures are worshipped, and then they lose all sense of perspective.
Rodman is trying to get a team of black basketball players to go over and play the North Koreans. I want to know just exactly how all those 6’7 black guys are going to LOSE to a bunch of short and starved little North Koreans, who will know, that if they lose, they will be shot?
And then there’s the Swat Team of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, who were SO afraid of a 107-year-old, they bought in the whole 47th tank division, complete with AK-47 machine guns.
PINE BLUFF, Ark. (TheBlaze/AP) — A 107-year-old man is dead after SWAT officers shot back at him during a standoff at a home in the southeast Arkansas city of Pine Bluff, police say.
But friends and fellow church members say that Monroe Isadore was legally blind and nearly deaf and shouldn’t have died that way.
“I’m in shock today,” Larry Smith, who attended church with Isadore at New Direction Baptist, told KLRT-TV.
“He couldn’t hear,” Smith said. “Somebody should’ve told the [police] he couldn’t hear.”
We all know senility comes in different colors, but…the guy with the gun, didn’t actually SHOOT anyone, so why did we have to call a full force military unit in?
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
Kim Jong Un—for his bad taste in women.
Nobody Knows just why Obama and the Rino’s are crying out for war with Syria. Everybody that I read is pretty much guessing that it’s all to save Obama from his own big mouth. But Nobody Thinks we should ask the very old but very sensible question: Who benefits? It’s blatantly obvious that the United States citizens, would be hurt. We don’t have the money or the will to fight another senseless war in the Middle East—-but how about our elites?
Nobody Knows and wonders—-what and IF some of our entranced Senators and Presidents get some personal money out of this from…big corporations, or even worse…other countries?
Nobody Knows…how influential big corporations and Saudi money are in calling the shots in Washington D.C. It seems, every politician in Washington is controlled and by big wads of money. P.J. O’Rourke was right when he said we have a Parliament of Whores. Nobody Wonders if we can also add a recent gaggle of Presidential Whores to that great title.
Let’s go back to the first gulf war. Daddy Bush told us we were going over there to protect a defenseless country named Kuwait, and Saddam was a bad guy. Remember, we backed that ‘bad’ guy with chemical weapons, military hardware, and millions of dollars to help those poor tribal lords in Iraq fight Iran. We did the very same thing with bin Laden, in Afghanistan, to help him fight Russia
How did that turn out for us?
Daddy Bush gave our military support to those adorable Sunni sheiks in Saudi Arabia in order to protect them, and their family, and their oil with the FIRST Gulf war. Bush the elder put on a real patriotic display for…making himself look good and protecting the Sheiks. The propaganda was so good…we didn’t mind much, because we still had money.
Then we had Clinton protecting the Muslims in Kosovo in THAT civil war. Remember, there was another ‘bad’ guy…Milosevic. Nobody Knows how necessary that was. Clinton kept away from bin Laden, refused the man nine times, because bin Laden had relatives in the Saudi family. He literally ignored the bombing of the Cole, (We will FIND the criminals who did this!) and the first bombing of the World Trade Center, which was done by the Muslim Brotherhood. Clinton airlifted Bosnian refugees over here because he felt sorry for them. He dropped 80,000 into St. Louis.
After 9.11, Bush Jr. protected the Saudi’s kids and sent out planes to pick up their families here, while everybody else was grounded. Even though almost ALL of the hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, Bush blamed one lone man. bin Laden, and he kept inviting those old Sheiks down to his Texas ranch, where he could give them big kisses.
Obama just has the thugs into the White House.
Who here believes that George W. Bush didn’t know where bin Laden was for ten years…raise your hands.
(Okay. You there. Go back to your granola.)
Obama continued the Saudi King worship with low bows.
Are you starting to see a pattern here? Jeb Bush is about to give Hillary Clinton, the butcher enabler of Benghazi, a metal of honor. Hillary has a Muslim Brotherhood woman as her assistant and she is now the right hand man of Obama.
Tell me, when will the American people get some attention from their Presidents?
All these years, our Presidents have been protecting the Saudi’s family…and we are still doing it. Iran is their biggest enemy. How nice it would be for them if we took out Syria, and then Iran?
You could say that our Presidents are doing this to keep us in oil, but we can easily get oil from other places, including our own country, and yet, we NEVER do. Our Congress AND President make damn sure we stay forever dependent on the Saudi oil.
Nobody knows, if the reason that rich people want the Presidency so badly is that the top politicians have their own very secret, and very lucrative contracts with Saudi Arabia? After all, the Saudi’s and the Muslim Brotherhood are both Wahhabi. It would explain why we have a Muslim sympathize in the White House. The Saudi’s could have told the Rhino’s at the top, that they wanted a Muslim someday, in the Presidency. John McCain could have been in on that deal. After all, he ran to lose, it was almost too obvious.
Are our Presidents and some of our Senators on the payrolls of Saudi Kings?
Because Nobody Knows how John McCain, a decorated war veteran, could say this:
The bloodcurdling cry of “Allahu akbar” is a war cry, and is meant to “strike terror in the hearts of the unbelievers.” You can’t tell me John McCain doesn’t know that.
Nobody Knows if the Boston Mayor Menino who said when a reporter asked him what he’d do with Detroit “I’d blow up the place and start all over.” if John McCain would think it was okay if the Mayor said “Thank GOD!” after he did it? (And wasn’t THAT a racist statement?)
Nobody Knows why the democrats, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore helped get the network Al-Jazeera broadcasted into American homes, while in Egypt, the Muslims’ Brotherhood network has been banned. Al Gore made millions, but what did Hillary get?
Nobody knows why now, Ft. Hood was treated as a work place accident. Nobody Knows why American Tea Party is higher on the FBI list as terrorist than al-Qaeda.
Are our Presidents getting paid in secret by the Saudi’s to keep us at war? After all, a few top men making billions from secret payouts from foreign countries would be very hard to prove, and very easy to hide. Look how long they hid everything else? (NSA( We still don’t know who killed JFK, and never will. Did FDR make a deal that American Presidents would forever more protect the Saudi Family as long as a few key people at the top of our government got big payouts? Could the Saudi Kings have insisted that payout as long as America was kept dependent on their oil?
Nobody knows, but it would sure explain the absolute absurdity of the last four President and their actions. And when you look all around you, it’s the ONLY answer that explains it all.
If you think I’m nuts about this theory, ask yourself: “What have they done for YOU lately?”
Questions abound in this Nobody Mind—
Obama has made it known to the whole world, that it was Assad that gassed his own people, therefore, Obama will attack. But, WND, has some proof that Obama’s much beloved rebels, who are filled with Muslim Brotherhood radicals, were the ones who launched the attacked. Nobody Knows who to believe: Obama, or good American investigative reporters.
Nobody knows WHY Obama’s administration has to announce every single precise military movement through the newspapers and Cable TV? Doesn’t Obama know that this isn’t a simple ‘police’ action but a declaration of war?
Nobody Knows, how Congress let the President decide to go to war all on his own, and remains silent.
Nobody Knows, how in the world Obama figures to send us all off to war, when he has decimated our armed forces, and driven our economy into the dustbowl of depression.
Nobody Knows why the liberal press, who screamed bloody murder about George W. Bush bombing Iraq because WMD’s were a National threat to the nation, can be so silent when Obama is saying the very same thing.
Nobody Knows, and according to some reports..the U.S. had plans to take out all these countries in the Middle East, starting with Iraq, long before 9/11, and that Obama is simply following the game plan.
Nobody Knows why John McCain and Karl Rove are practically salivating at the mouth to send our boys into Syria.
Nobody Knows if we have hit the point, where our leaders figure the only way for the United States to survive, is to enter into a major war in order to unite the people, and get people working again, and for THAT to happen, we will have to be attacked on our own soil again.
Which brings me to—–
Nobody Knows why Dick Cheney keeps mentioning that scary scenario every single time he is on TV, but Nobody Thinks Dick isn’t just whistling Dixie. Dick Cheney believes it will happen. He has for years.
Nobody Knows what would happen if China and Russia side with Assad and go to war against the United States, but from a military point of view, America is at her weakness.
Nobody Knows if the Jews will take out Iran, in the near future.
Nobody Knows what to believe and what is disinformation, but Nobody Thinks everybody should stock up on booze and water.
That’s’ enough question for now.
Nobody Knows why my mind keeps thinking these things….but maybe I think our leaders want war, because Napolitano said this before she left for California:
Nobody Knows, if she is secretly sleeping with Dick Cheney’s…daughter. I would be surprised if it was Dick.
And Nobody Knows if THAT’s why Janet Napolitano got out sooner, rather than later. She didn’t want to take the blame for it.
While everyone is fretting about masks on clowns, and Oprah Winfrey’s delicate ego, Nobody Asks: HEY…What happened with North Korea? Did Kim Jong-un find another hobby? Where IS the little cheeky chipmunk? Wasn’t he going to nuke the United States not too long ago?
Gee…Obama acted as if he was a flea making noise, and he treats Putin the same way. I don’t know about you, but ever since Einstein wrote that letter to FDR saying something like, “Yes, this could destroy the whole world.” I think our President should quit talking about the “middle class,” which as everybody knows, is somewhere in the Magic Kingdom stuck on the Dumbo ride—- and start taking his job seriously…you know— the part where he promises to ‘protect and defend’ us? Did he miss that part?
I’m aging myself here, but I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis. I was only a kid, but I do remember asking my dad why he was digging a big hole in our back yard in Naples, Florida, one Sunday afternoon in broad daylight.
As I remember, he didn’t sugarcoat it:
“We might get hit by a bomb in a few days, and we’ll be safe in this hole.” he said.
“Will that bomb kill us?”
“Yes. But, I think we’ll be safe in the hole. Go get some canned beans from mom. “
That was the ‘greatest generation.” My dad had seen what war does, (He had been a Seabee in the Pacific) and they didn’t believe hiding the truth from their kids. Eisenhower was a great man according to my parents, and this new John Kennedy kid, well…he was just a pretty face as far as they were concerned, and didn’t know what the heck he was doing. They didn’t really think he would keep us from being attacked. They had absolutely no confidence in him, whatsoever.
And here I am, too many years later, and I find myself having the same mistrust on THIS President, whom to me…also got elected on his pretty face, but unfortunately for us, is ten-fold more clueless than JFK. JFK, you could very well say, was a patriot and loved this country: Obama…does not.
America is just as vulnerable now from nuclear attack as it has ever been..and with each new President many of us ask ourselves, “Will THIS one be the one who will refuse to let go of power?”
After all, all any of them is a good crisis as an excuse–to hang on.
Here’s a few facts from Dinesh D’Souza’s excellent book: Obama’s America, about Obama’s destructive disarmament of our country, and I include some remarks underneath:
Dinesh: In 2009 when Obama took office, the US had approximately 5,000 nuclear warheads in its arsenal. Obama resolutely set about slashing that number. In 2011, Obama negotiated an arms reduction treaty with Russia, the so called START treaty, in which both countries agreed to reduce their warhead count to 1,5550. America and Russian also limited their launchers to 700. In convincing the US Senate to support the treaty, Obama promises to modernize America’s existing nuclear assets a promise he subsequently abandoned.
Nobody: Recently it was reported that our nuclear facilities were ‘dangerously” vulnerable to attack–due to failing recent mock security tests—- and leaving many places like the Bay Area and Denver vulnerable to a detonation that would “dwarf” the impacts of Chernobyl. If we are attacked–Obama will be playing cards with Reggie Love on Air Force One.
Dinesh: Some of the provision of the treaty were downright odd: the limit on 700 launchers imposed not restrictions o Russia, since Russian already had fewer than 700 launchers. Once START was ratified and became law. He has asked the Pentagon to study reducing America’s nuclear deterrent by up to 80 percent, which would bring us down to around 300 strategic warheads. All of this is occurring at a time when other nuclear armed nations like China are expanding and modernizing their arsenals. Never before in history has a global superpower disarmed itself so rapidly and so thoroughly.
Nobody: Typical of Obama. While he hurts his own country at home, he is now helping Saudi Arabia develop nuclear energy. Much as Clinton helped North Korea developed their nuclear energy and we know how that turned out. Democrats just LOVE to help other countries come up to par in a nuclear world…and why is that again?
Dinesh: America can strike back, but China and Russia have an additional 150 warheads each with which they can level every major American city. The point is that America is not deterred from striking back, because it fears a completely devastation second strike that would basically end America as we know it. These are war games that the Pentagon has played since the dawn of the nuclear age.
Nobody: Oh…peachy. Can we put that reset button on Obama’s head?
Dinesh ;Early in this presidency Obama cut back on missile defense systems in Alaska and California. Obama canceled an anti missile system planned for Poland as well as a missile detection radar system planed for the Czech Republic.
Nobody: I bet Polish people can wear Obama masks!
Dinesh: We can no longer fight two wars on two different shores. In 2009, Obama ordered $330 billion in defense cuts. The next year he convinced Defense Secretary Robert Gates to pare an additional $100 billion. In 2011 Obama chopped an additional $487 billion from the Pentagon, thus bringing his total cuts to nearly a trillion dollars.
Nobody: But he has increased drones, and you’d better not touch his daughters.
Dinesh: While the defense department is being cut to the bone, other programs like health care and green technologies are bloated with money. Obama shows no evident interest in reducing overall spending only in reducing military spending.
Nobody: I don’t think Obama has been to Bora Bora yet.
Dinesh: Obama’s hope, is that fear will keep America humble. Call it humility through vulnerability. And in this way Obama hopes that America will stop acting like the evil empires.
And that’s the point of his book: Obama believes that America HAS been the evil empire…and the reason that he admires the Muslim Brotherhood, says Dinesh, is not because he is a Muslim himself, but because he sees them as freedom fighters against the big, bad, and mean America. He disarms us…invites us to be attack. And yet…Congress does nothing.
I don’t know what to think: But it seems clear to me this country has never been more vulnerable to attack then we are with Obama. No NSA agent is going to find out who sent the nuke by monitoring Verizon Wireless. Telephones are a poor substitute for a strong military.
One thing I do know….If there was another nuclear crisis–unlike JFK, who got on TV and warned us all—-Obama would be hiding somewhere over the rainbow, playing golf in the Bahamas, and we’d be the LAST ones to know….exactly what happened.
But…just in case you don’t have a dad like I did…somebody ESLE has made lots of TV series teaching us all about how to survive a nuclear attack, or just about anything. Aren’t they sweet?
You gotta love America. :)
(Sigh.) Obama helped Mohamed Morsi by sending him millions of dollars (some estimates 2 billion) and 20 advanced jets, while Morsi was saying things against the United States. He backed a Jew hating, Christian hating, American hating, horrible thug of a man, who forced a strict Islamic Constitution on his people, and I wish I could say that Nobody Remembers this happening before, but before Morsi, there was Ngo Dinh Diem.
You remember him don’t you? He was the little squirt of a guy that we backed in Vietnam, even after Eisenhower advisers called him ‘hopeless,’ and the French prime ministers Edgar Faure called him, “not only incapable, but mad.” That didn’t stop John F. Kennedy from claiming that Diem’s regime was “The cornerstone of the free world in Southeast Asia, the keystone to the arch, the finger in the dyke.’
Lyndon Johnson compared him to Churchill.
Nobody Notice:—Before the Vietnam War the United States had not been ‘attacked’ by the communists of North Vietnam, unlike on 9/11, or Pearl Harbor. But, our great leaders had to come up with something. Communism was coming after us OVER THERE if we didn’t go OVER THERE to stop it. Sound familiar? (The Jihadist will come over here if we don’t go over there to stop it. )
My neighbor might come OVER here and steal my lawn mower if I don’t go over to his house and nail his garage door shut.
(Nobody Thinks they must teach these political guys all the lines at conferences on World BS 101.)
Why did the democrats pick Diem? He was a devout Catholic who had seen years in exile in New Jersey. (Mohamed Morsi had been a professor in California!) South Vietnam was 95 percent Buddhist….and he was all about ruling, not as a democracy but as an autocratic dictator with his family and friends in control. Pretty much what the Muslim Brotherhood does. Rule by Theocratic Thugs.
Nhu, his brother became the head of the secret police. And his wife was a real peach. Madame Nhu abolished divorce and made adultery a crime. She banned contraceptives, beauty contest, and boxing matches. She closed Saigon’s nightclubs and ballrooms…in Saigon. Not that the place didn’t need a bit of cleaning up, but….let’s just say Morsi would have loved her.
In other words, Diem believed in divine rule, (like Morsi) and he was divine.
One CIA guy said Diem was…”Very prissy. Very authoritarian,. Rather pompous.”
And just like a good democrat, he held an election and claimed himself victory with 98 percent of the vote….(NO doubt he learned that in Jersey) Of course, it was a lie. He bought his own troops into Saigon to vote. He stuffed ballot boxes. We spend a million dollars a day propping up this guy.
Diem was one of the main reasons we ‘lost’ the war in Vietnam, and a whole generation of American man lost their lives. Not to mention, the millions that were killed by the communists afterwards.
One of the worst ideas Diem had, that drove his own people into the arms of the communists , was his “strategic hamlet” program. Peasants were forced from their native villages, to move into fortified villages that were often miles from their fields or markets. It was basically forced labor. The French had given the farmers free land, but then Diem made them pay for the land they already had. And just like Mohamed Morsi.. the things people needed— like hospitals, schools, social services, jobs… etc, he ignored. Many people joined the Viet Cong just to “get Diem.”
The people, like people everywhere, just wanted to be left alone.
Have you noticed the pattern?
Later on, Diem’s own cabinet, noticing the suffering of the people, offered modest reforms to him. He got so mad he closed newspapers, and arrested journalists— students, calling everyone who went against him a communist. (Morsi did this too. )
Diem was a ‘puppet who pulled his own strings.’ Sort of like Karsi, only he didn’t wear a stupid cape.
And while Diem was playing King, Kennedy, in direct violation of the Geneva agreement sent in our military. When, troops, advisers, and 47 helicopters were already going on bombing missions, Kennedy was asked in a news conference on January 15, 1962, if the United States were engaged in Vietnam.
His one world answer was “no.”
Then , one day, Diem’s men fired upon a Buddhist crowd killing a woman and 8 children. The Buddhists starting protesting. Madame Nhu blamed the Americans. No, Madame Nhu was not proud of her country..(.If only she could have talked to Michelle. )
On June 11, an old Buddhist protested Deim’s treatment of the Buddhists by setting himself on fire. Diem then declared martial law and sent his loyal forces to attack Buddhist temples in cities throughout the country. They arrested monks and nuns. Morsi has done the very same thing to the Christians in Egypt.
When the United States threatened to stop giving Deim and Nhu money, Nhu started working with the communists. Nhu’s own general worked with the United States and they …were …uh…killed. Nobody Knows who killed them, but the jungle is a good guess. ( Or…they’re drinking champagne back in New Jersey.)
And so, Obama gave Morsi billions, and Morsi did exactly what Ngo Dinh Diem did. He forgot the people, and started to repress them all. Now his men are killing Christians. And Obama is condemning, NOT the Muslim brotherhood, but the military that is killing the people KILLING Christians.
Go figure. .
And so, will Obama keep backing the Muslim Brotherhood, as he now backs Al-Qaeda in Syria? Will the poor people in Egypt who are just trying to get the Muslim Brotherhood out of their government get a fair support from OUR media?
Is that a stupid question or what?

Hey…let’s not forget the Clintons! Hillary is already warming up her act to become President. Here’s an email to remind everyone, just how much Obama is like Clinton. They both talk a big game, and then…bluff. Here’s an email that laid out the real facts on Bill Clinton, written by a military man, so I think we SHOULD …pass it around!
(Thanks to Mona)
Oh! You didn’t know he had a military career?
Bill & Hillary got about $12 million for their to-be written memoirs. Here’s some help for them since their memories are getting old.
Bill Clinton registers for the draft on September 08, 1964, accepting all contractual conditions of registering for the draft. Selective Service Number is 326.
Bill Clinton classified 2-S on November 17, 1964. Bill Clinton reclassified 1-A on March 20, 1968. Bill Clinton ordered to report for induction on July 28, 1969.
Bill Clinton refuses to report and is not inducted into the military. Bill Clinton reclassified 1-D after enlisting in the United States Army Reserves on August 07,1969, under authority of COL. E. Holmes.
Clinton signs enlistment papers and takes oath of enlistment. Bill Clinton fails to report to his duty station at the University of Arkansas ROTC, September 1969. Bill Clinton reclassified 1-A on October 30, 1969, as enlistment with Army Reserves is revoked by Colonel E. Holmes and Clinton now AWOL and subject to arrest under Public Law 90-40 (2) (a)-registrant who has failed to report…remain liable for induction. Bill Clinton’s birth date lottery number is 311, drawn December 1, 1969, but anyone who has already been ordered to report for induction is INELIGIBE!
Bill Clinton runs for Congress (1974), while a fugitive from justice under Public Law 90-40. Bill Clinton runs for Arkansas Attorney General (1976), while a fugitive from justice.
Bill Clinton receives pardon on January 21, 1977, from President Carter.
Bill Clinton becomes the FIRST PARDONED FEDERAL FELON ever to serve as President of the United States. All these facts come from Freedom of Information requests, public laws, and various books that have been published, and have not been refuted by Clinton.
After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, President Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
After the 1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed five U.S. military personnel, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
After the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 and injured 200 U.S. military personnel, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
After the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa, which killed 224 and injured 5,000, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
After the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, which killed 17 and injured 39 U.S. sailors, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
Maybe if Clinton had kept those promises, an estimated 3,000 people in New York and Washington, DC, who are now dead would be alive today. Think about it! It is strange turn of events. Hillary gets $8 million for her forthcoming memoir. Bill gets about $12 million for his memoir yet to be written. This from two people who spent 8 years being unable to recall anything about past events while under oath.
P.S. Please forward this to as many people as you can! We don’t want this woman to ever THINK of running for President!
