Remember that song? ( See Edwin Starr sing it at the end…cool song.)
I was thinking today, about how Ronald Reagan crushed Russia. We are told that, Ronald got together with world leaders, and managed to bankrupt the Bear. But, Russia did that to herself didn’t she? Ten long years of war in Afghanistan, and after that war, Russia was ripe to fall. Reagan saw his chance and took it.
America, has done much the same thing: Spent trillions in Afghanistan and Iraq, and Obama has now retreated. But, according to Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, we have an even bigger problem now:
“They are as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They’re beyond just a terrorist group. This is beyond anything we’ve seen. We must prepare for everything.”–Hagel
So, I thought, in contemplation of the upcoming war with ISIS, we’d review the costs of wars and contemplate, our upcoming expenses:
These costs were based on the 2008 dollars, so add inflationary numbers to all:
War of 1812 (1812-1815) $1.177 billion: 2,260 battle deaths.
Mexican War (1846-1849) $1.801 billion: 1,733 battle deaths.
Civil War...Confederacy (1861-1865) $15.244billion: 94,000 battle deaths.
Civil War…Union (1861-1865) $45.199 billion: 140,414 battle deaths.
Spanish American War (1898-1899) $6.848 billion: 385 battle deaths.
World War I (1917-1918) $253 billion: 53,513 battle deaths.
World War II (1941-1945) $4.114 trillion: 292,131 battle deaths.
Korean War (1950-1953) $320 billion: 33,629 battle deaths.
Vietnam War (1965-1975) $686 billion: 47,393 battle deaths.
Persian Gulf War (1990-1991) $96 billion: 146 battle deaths.
Afghanistan War (2001-) $800 billion: 906 battle deaths.(could not find updated info)
Iraq War (2003-) $1.7 trillion, 3,489 battle deaths., (Now near 5,000)
And $4 trillion in interest alone.
The costs do not include veterans benefits, war debts, or assistance to our allies. Casualties do not include civilians, noncombat deaths, those wounded or missing in action.
The report concluded the United States gained little from the Iraq war while Iraq was traumatized by it. The war reinvigorated radical Islamist militants in the region, set back women’s rights, and weakened an already precarious healthcare system, the report said. Meanwhile, the $212 billion reconstruction effort was largely a failure with most of that money spent on security or lost to waste and fraud.
As we watch the new evil of ISIS threatening the U.S., many experts believe that we will be hit on our own soil, thanks to Obama’s open border policies.
So, how much will the NEXT US war cost us?
Nobody Knows. But we do know one thing:
It will cost more than all others combined.
While we all sit and watch Putin invade the Ukraine, with stated plans to overtake other parts of old Russia, Obama makes fluffy speeches. Obama has made it known, Putin can do just about anything he wants. So can Iran. Obama’s new foreign policy is: America is just going to play golf. You guys go ahead and we’ll stay out of it.
According to Dwight D. Eisenhower, it’s a sure recipe for war.
And so, Nobody Remembers a speech that Dwight D. Eisenhower gave to the American people on March 29th, 1952, when he was running for President.
Eisenhower ran on three issues: Korea, Communism and corruption.
He defeated Democrat Adlai Stevenson in a landslide, with an electoral margin of 442 to 89, marking the first Republican return to the White House in 20 years. In the election he also brought with him a Republican majority in the House (by eight votes) and in the Senate (actually a tie, with Nixon providing the majority vote).
(Proving that real conservatives win elections.)
Below are a few examples from that speech. Eisenhower was one of greatest generals in world history, and reading it will make you wonder..how in the world did America fall so low with Obama? Who, if you listen to Eisenhower, will lead us all into WWIII.
Remember, in 1952, we were at war with North Korea:
“There is a Korean War—and we are fighting it for the simplest of reasons: Because free leadership failed to check and to turn back Communist ambition before it savagely attacked us. The Korean War, more perhaps than any other war in history simply and swiftly followed the collapse of our political defenses. There is no other reason than this. We failed to read and to outwit the totalitarian mind.
World War II should have taught us all one lesson. The lesson is this: To vacillate, to hesitate—to appease even by merely betraying unsteady purpose—is to feed a dictator’s appetite for conquest and to invite war itself. That lesson—which should have firmly guided every great decision of our leadership through these later years…was ignored in the development of the administration’s policies for Asia since the end of World War II. Because it was ignored, the record of these policies is a record of appalling failure.
Already along the 38th Parallel aggression is speaking with the too familiar voices of howitzers and cannons. our position is untenable and indefensible. The House should be aware of this.
These words of eloquent, reasoned warning were spoken about eleven months before the Korean War broke.
What a tragedy that the administration shrugged off that so accurate warning!
The armies of communism thus informed began their big build-up. Six months later they were ready to strike across the 18th Parallel. They struck on June 25, 1950. On that day, the record of political and diplomatic failure of this administration was completed and sealed.
Programs along at least two lines can instantly begin. We can, first, step up the program of training and arming the South Korean forces.
We can secondly shape our psychological warfare program into a weapon capable of cracking the Communist front.
The vital lesson is this: To vacillate, to appease, to placate is only to invite war–vaster war, bloodier war. In the words of the late Senator Vandenberg, appeasement is not the road to peace: it is only surrender on the installment plan.
I will always reject appeasement.
“A nations foreign policy is a much graver matter than rustling papers and bustling conferences. It is much more than diplomatic decisions and trade treaties and military arraignments. A foreign policy is the face and voice of a whole people. It is all that the world sees and hears and understand about a single nation. It expresses the character and the faith and the will of that nation. In this, a nation is like any individual of our personal acquaintance: the simplest gesture can betray hesitation or weakness, the merest inflection of voice can reveal doubt or fear. It is in this deep sense that our foreign policy had faltered and failed. “
I don’t know about you..but that last paragraph is chilling close to the Obama administration.
So, if you go by Eisenhower’s convictions: Obama’s handling of our foreign affairs in the world, will lead us all into the bloodiest war every fought. But…nobody reads history anymore…do they?
Everyone was talking today about how Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin wrote a scathing remark about America in an opinion piece.. The old cold war tensions are starting to blow up again, thanks to BO…and you might think this is the first time Russia has embarrassed the United States, but it’s happened before. Before Putin, there was Nikita Khrushchev.
According to Brian Thomsen in the book: Lies and Propaganda Thought History, America has stepped in deep doo-doo before. We have a habit of losing our spy planes:
In 1960 the cold war was heating up and an effort to defuse the tensions there was a summit meeting for May 16, bringing together the four heads of state of the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. Unfortunately on May 1, a U.S. Lockheed U-2 plane disappeared over the sovereign territory of the Soviet Union. Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev declared that a “spy plane’ had been shot down, whereupon the United States issued a statement reaffirming the claim that the plane was a ‘weather research aircraft” and the pilot had difficulty with his oxygen equipment during a mission over Turkey” The administration stated, “There was absolutely no deliberate attempt to violate Soviet airspace and never has been.”
The U.S. was lying.
The U-2 pilot, Francis Gary Powers had left Peshwar, Pakistan, intending to fly over the Soviet Union and land at Bodo, Norway with the intention to photograph Soviet intercontinental ballistic missiles development sites in and around Sverdlovsk and Plesetsk….but he was shot down by a 14 SA-2Guideline surface-to-air missile which brought the plane down. Powers was suppose to destroy the plane and/or himself, but he was captured after he abandoned the aircraft by parachute. The Soviets got the film, and found 7,500 rubles on him.
Powers was put on trial for espionage, pleaded guilty (to avoid being executed) and was convicted on August 19. After serving three years hard labor he was exchanged for Soviet spy master Rudolf Abel in 1962. The Paris summit was called off, and Eisenhower, Charles De Gaulle, Harold Macmillan, and Khrushchev. didn’t meet and things got worse.
As usual to American politics, a cloak of deniability was quickly fashion for the president to protect him from scandal….of course. Later on, when asked how high he was flying on May 1, 1960, he often replied, “evidently not high enough.” Many of you do not remember, but Obama lost a valuable spy plane to Iran in 2011. No, there wasn’t a pilot, but gee…nothing like handing over our best technology. Nobody Really remembers that now do they? That was an even bigger blooper than the U-2 taking pictures.
Yes, Nobody Remembers so I just thought I’d bring it up. Oh yes, George W. Bush lost a plane in China…but…he at least tried to get it back.
Last night, Obama made the pleading case of how hard it was for him to watch children being poisoned, and dying on hospitals floors. He tired to create emotions for the world to respond to the horror of children being gassed.
But…Does he forgets the images of Americans jumping to their death on 9/11? And the brave men and women who were crushed to death or died horrible deaths of choking on smoke or burning alive? Were not those images just as horrible?
Americans are a little less moved at other people’s suffering. This is not pre-Hitler. This is a new world, where death is seen everyday on our video games, our TV’s and our movies. We have been…hardened.
I walked into my mother’s room on 9/11, and even though she could not speak due to a stroke, she grabbed my hand, and pointed to the towers coming down with horror. She shook her head as if to say: “I want to leave this horrible world!”
If you watch the 9/11 ceremony, the people are just as emotional today as they were twelve years ago.
We should remember this day forever, and especially now: And think twice before we arm the same people who did this to us. And go again to stir up a hornets nest of hatred.
Nobody Wonders when the wars in the Middle East will be over. If we follow history—-never. We must never forget that Islam, is NOT a peaceful religion.
Lindsey Graham was a knockout during Bill Clinton’s Impeachment. I use to love to listen to him argue about Bill’s sexual escapades with Monica. I just loved his southern drawl.
But now, Lindsey’s sweet talk has turned to threats. Next to John McCain, Lindsey is all out for a full fledged war..and here’s his reasoning:
If the United States doesn’t deal with Syria, Graham promised Iran would acquire a nuclear weapon by 2014, the King of Jordan would be deposed and Israel would start preparing to protect itself.
“I believe that if we get Syria wrong, within six months — and you can quote me on this,” Graham said, pausing for dramatic effect. “There will be a war between Iran and Israel over their nuclear program.”
But it wouldn’t even end there, Graham surmised. Undoubtedly, he said ominously, the Iranians would share its nuclear technology with U.S. enemies.
“My fear is that it won’t come to America on top of a missile, it’ll come in the belly of a ship in the Charleston or New York harbor,” he said.
Oh. Right. So why not just bomb Iran? Why waste the bombs on Syria? How is bombing Syria going to stop Iran from making nukes? Netanyahu has already addressed Congress about just how close Iran is to developing nukes, and how nothing is going to stop them. Bombing Syria will just rush them to the fact more. Where was Lindsay on that day? Playing Golf with Obama?
And so—by Lindsey’s reasoning, ANYBODY can bring a nuke into the New York harbor. There are other countries with nuclear capability besides Iran. Pakistan for one. And gee…what is all that NSA spying for if not to stop stuff like that from happening?
And how about those open borders of ours?
Beware of those sweet talking southern men, with baby face wide eyes, appealing to your emotions.
You would think that after Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, people would know better than to keep voting for those sweet talking southern charmers.
You would think.
Nobody Wins: Here we have two nobody inventor winners! Don’t want Obama following you to your girlfriend’s house? Block that signal.
Okay, so I see a few bugs here. What happens when you have to make a call? It looks like you would have to take it out of the ‘pocket’ and then BAM. They’ve got cha.
Or maybe you can put your off pocket hoodie on while you’re making your call….or better yet— Get them to stop spying on you. (Laugh here)
Wait…then the call signal won’t go out.
Anyway, the good news here is, nobody likes to be snooped on, and these two nobodies are trying to do something about it. Good for them!
Nobody Wins: Another big win this week was Ann Coulter’s last column, where she compares Saddam Hussein’s crimes to Assad. When Ann is hot, she is sizzling. Read that here.
Nobody Wins: It was a big loss today when John Kerry kept insisting to Rand Paul that bombing Syria, would not, and should not be considered taking us to war. It’s just an ‘action’ to make Assad stop using chemical weapons. It’s one thing to change the meaning of what the word ‘is’ —but, it’s quite another when your Secretary of State changes the meaning of dropping bombs on a country from a declaration of war, to some sort of friendly warning letter.
Nobody Wins: Another loss went to Miley Cyrus, who bragged about how successful her sex dance was on MTV, because she is reeling in the MONEY! Nobody suggests she get her ears fixed.
Nobody Wins: And on a lighter note, at the zoo today, we were walking around the corner, and we kept hearing loud rhythmic GRUNTS. We came around the corner—-and low and behold…somebody got lucky! (Yes, I HAD to take a picture, wouldn’t you?) If you’ve never seen a Galapagos Turtle having sex, you might want to put that on your bucket list of “uh?” I’m so sorry I did not have my movie camera. His grunts were just great.
What I did notice was that SHE was eating an apple during the whole thing. Which gave me a few ideas……
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. :)
When America dropped the bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the argument for whether that was a humane thing to do, is still being debated. Many people said that we should have continue the war and sooner or later we could have overtaken Japan as we did Germany, rather than killing all those innocent lives.
But..what many people don’t know, is that the Japanese had developed a nonmetallic land mine that could not be detected by any known means. They planted these mines in random patterns across the beaches of Japan and along all possible invasion routes. Estimates of deaths from those land mines alone ran into the hundreds of thousands. They tried in vain to find a way to destroy them. Dropping bombs from airplanes in Europe failed.
According to Richard Anderson, a renown staticist who was working on the problem with the Defense Department at the time—
One of the reasons why the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Japan was that all their experiments and calculations showed that it was impossible to destroy these mines by any other means.
So…if history repeats itself…we may all wonder about Iran: Will we ever see another nuclear weapon used in our lifetime?
And is the reason why our Congress approves such an unconstitutional measure of using drones on our home soil—is because they know something we don’t? Are there terrorists in the United States already with nuclear material? Some experts say it’s entirely possible.
Ahmadinejad has threatened to hit the ‘heart’ of America with some kind of devastation weapon. North Korea…is threatening New York. Obama says nothing.
Today we find out that when Obama was told about the attack happening in Benghazi, he told Leon Panetta to do whatever they felt necessary, and then Obama took off at 5 o’clock and nobody spoke to him again, even though the attack went on for hours… which means:.
1) He’s the most incompetent President ever in the history of the United States and just went off to have his big dinner and watch basketball…or
2) He ordered the stand-down in Benghazi and sacrificed those men because he didn’t want it to get out that the ambassador was helping supply Al-Qaeda with arms and weapons before his elections, and everything that happened following that was a cover-up.
3) Both of the above.
Nobody finds it less than funny that after all these years, our government couldn’t have come out and just admitted that the Japanese had land mines that so well protected their island, we couldn’t defeat them from the ground. It would have made a lot more sense. Was not revealing this fact a way to make us look big, and invincible?
“What we pretend to be defending as the “truth” is really our own self-esteem.” Thomas Merton “No Man Is An Island:
So..what is the truth? Obama lies. Panetta lies. Hillary lies. Who do we believe? Dick Cheney, the most hated man in America for years, said that his worst nightmare was to wake up to a nuclear attack on an American City.
Nobody Thinks….Hell, I’m not sure what I think, but I do know one thing…I’d rather be drinking Rum & Coke on the beach in Hawaii than thinking about any of this…care to join me?
I found this video by random today: A young boy signs up, and then finds out that war is terrible–and this same video could have been made back in 1969. He is right about many things: America does get in too many wars…and if it were up to its citizens, after the attack, we would have gone to kill bin Laden, and not bombed Iraq. America’s military is in too many countries, and war makes too much money for too many people. Despite what Bush thinks…Iraq has turned out to be another Vietnam. He might have to wait more than 50 years to get his glory.
BUT…to say that it’s a ‘racist’ war, is going a bit too far. We…were attacked. Innocents were killed, not soldiers. Unlike WWII, no Muslims in this country were rounded up, even though the Muslims here pose much more of a danger than the poor Japanese’s citizens living here back in 1942 ever did.
What did President Bush do? He got the rich ones out, at our expense. Fine with me.
I must admit, while I don’t agree with most of the points made in the video, I can see how a young man involved over there could rationalized his pain in exactly that way. The young…just don’t know any better. Life will hit them…and thank god it will be later rather than sooner.
So, blame it on the corporations? I’ll go with that. BUT…blame it on the racist Americans who will not bow or feel compassions for Islam?
You have to ask yourself: what has the army been feeding these guys?
Today it was released in the news, that Obama is going full-force “Allah” by issuing a demand that our armed forces may KILL Muslims, but, they cannot for any reason talk against them.
Really? Oh..that REAL logical.
The new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other Islamic things.
The new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture— not Taliban infiltration—is responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces. The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”
Okay soldier: you turn your head when you see that Afghan with that little boy.
Can you believe this shit? (Sorry…I’m still an American)
Obviously, this is more proof that Obama and Hillary are on a mission to make it against the law to talk against Islam in this country. The military will be FORCED to do so.
The citizens will be next.
And after that? Submission.
So, when Hillary says she is NOT going to run for office in 2016, I’d believe her, because the Muslim Brotherhood is not going to want a woman in the White House, and it seems it’s their mission to not offend the Muslims at any cost.
Unless of course, she wears a burka..and I know a few fellows who would approve.
The truth is: someone will always be at war. The war in the Middle East will only stop when the Saharan sands turned to Broccoli…and by that time, all the prophesies will come true…and until that time, the remaining Americans who love their country have a even more powerful enemy to survive.
Their own govenment. And on that–the young and the old, can agree.
I would not be doing my parent’s memory any favors if I did not remember the day in history that Pearl Harbor was attacked. My father ran off at fifteen to join up to go fight the ‘Japs’, as did his father and his brother (who was killed in the Pacific) and my mother’s first husband was wounded and so he divorced her (his idea) and then she met my father while he was on leave on a boat on the Mississippi…in his sailor’s suite..and that’s why I’m here. My father’s rubbery legs were just too hard to resist.
Anyway, I couldn’t resist finding out what else had happened on the infamous day, so here’s a few of the events that interested me, with some really nebulous Nobody thoughts:
43 BC - Marcus Tullius Cicero (b. 106 BC), Roman orator and politician assassinated.
(We honored him with a salad dressing, and a city in IL, which contains a big prison. .)
1787 - Delaware becomes 1st state to ratify constitution
(And now, one of the first to ratify gay marriage)
1808 - James Madison elected 4th US President and George Clinton Vice-President
(Any relation to Bill? And if so..what happened to the gene pool?)
1868 - Jesse James gang robs bank in Gallatin Missouri, kills 1
(Who was shot by Jesse just for fun, but to this day it’s denied)
1877 - Thomas A Edison demonstrates the gramophone
(OMG–imagine…no recording of ANYTHING? I simply can’t. Because of Tom Edison, we got to see video pictures of Pearl Harbor being bombed.)
1937 - Red Sox acquire the contract of 19-year-old Ted Williams
(Who now lies frozen without his head. Or his head lies frozen wo his body..which is it?)
1934 - Wiley Post discovers jet stream
(COME ON…I think they knew about that LONG before Wiley.)
1941 - Japanese attack Pearl Harbor (a date that will live in infamy)
(Even if we wanted to forget it, the Japanese would never let us.)
1945 - Microwave oven patented
(Mr. Tortino will forever be grateful)
62 - Great Britain performs nuclear test at Nevada Test Site
(Uh..WHY did we let the Brits test THEIR bombs on OUR soil? Didn’t we win the war? Couldn’t they have tested in on one of their many empires? What? )
1968 - M Dodd returns a library books his Great grandfather took out in 1923.
(It was probably a book about Cicero. I wouldn’t have returned it either)
1973 - Wings release “Band on the Run”
(Nobody could figure out why Paul McCartney was running…unless it was from drug charges. He should move to Colorado with his new wife, and do a new version of Rocky Mountain High…Colorado…)
1987 - Palestinian uprising against Israel in West Bank
(For those of you who do not read history…newsflash…this will never stop. )
1988 - Mikhail Gorbachev cheered by Wall St crowds upon arrival in NYC
LOL! A communist cheered by Wall Street! Proof that Wall Street LOVES a good communists because a free market President would have never bailed them out!
1990 - Ted Turner & Jane Fonda announce their engagement
(And they lived happily ever after until he found a woman with bigger boobs.)
And so, today, something might happen.
Let’s just hope it not a repeat of Pearl Harbor.
To all the vets from all the wars
We love you all.
I just saw ‘General’ Wesley Clark talking to Shepard Smith on FOX, and he was exclaiming that Obama has done wonderful work on our foreign policy. Benghazi was just a small thing in lew of the “big picture”.
Makes you wonder why nobody ever explains what that “big picture” might be.
Basically the General was repeating that Benghazi was just a bump in the road. Obama got bin Ladin, he said with great pride. Generals are now being used as propaganda agents for the left, and THIS general has always been a useful tool for the democrats.
But remember, here Clark—-in 2007, was criticizing George W. Bush for going into Iraq after 9/11 in this video. He is shocked by the ‘plans’ to go into all those countries and get rid of their leaders.
Clark by his own assumptions, should be also critizing Obama today, because Obama has carried out Bush’s plans…at least in Libya, and Afghanistan. Obama went into Libya and got rid of Gaddafi. He helped Egypt to get rid of Mubarak. The difference is Obama is helping the Muslim Brotherhood leaders replace the dictators, something George W. Bush would by all accounts, not do.
Wesley Clark makes no mention that Obama is doing the same work of–Dick Cheney. He forgets to mention Obama has continued the “big picture” of Cheney amd Bush, and once again…what “big picture” is Wesley talking about?
What is surprising to me, is that a very well know writer for WND sent me this video, claiming he if fed up with America, and it’s people.
He now lives overseas, and doesn’t want to come back.
And to me, that’s a good thing. Let him stay there.
It seems, even our finest journalists can’t tell facts from fiction, and that there are still Americans living in America, and we have no intentions of going down without a fight.
Which party keeps us safer? Who do you think?
Obama just can’t seem to quit sending guns to the rest of the world. As we all know, he armed the Libyan rebels and they turned right around and killed our ambassador…THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. PRESIDENTE! He did the same thing with Fast and Furious, and bodies are falling all over the place from the guns given courtesy of Obama.
Who knows what weapons he is giving away in Las Vegas at the moment? Is he arming the Unions?
Nobody Knows why Obama wants to give guns away to drug cartels, and al-Qaeda thugs, who are both REALLY bad groups of people, but he just can’t seem to help himself. Now, we are supplying weapons to Syria.
Well, Ronald Reagan did that too. And got lynched for it. Where’s the press on this? How come when Reagan gave weapons to free hostages he was a ‘War Mongol’ but Obama can arm every Jihadist in the Middle East and he is a “freedom fighter”?
The only “freedom” he is giving is the freedom for our enemies to kill us with our own weapons.
Reagan sent weapons to free American hostages in Iran. The guns sent to Nicaragua were to fight against the communists, which ARE enemies of the United States. This was a real fight for freedom-(Whether he knew it or not.)
Obama is arming our sworn enemy Al Qaida, in the Middle East with weapons, and nobody is putting up much of a stink about it.
American Presidents have had a bad habit of giving Muslims like Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein WMD’s and all kinds of weapons— and what has it gotten us?
A lot of good American men dead.
And while Obama is busy arming the Muslim nations, he is cutting our defense here at home.
The Obama administration issued guidance Friday that said defense firms’ costs would be covered if they have to lay off workers due to canceled contracts under the across-the-board cuts set to take effect Jan. 2.
The guidance prompted Lockheed Martin — which had previously threatened to send out notices of potential layoffs to all of its 123,000 employees — to say Monday it would not send notices this year under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act.
So, let me get this straight: Obama wants to be reelected, so he has asked the defense companies that he is cutting from the budget to NOT fire anybody, and if they get sued, Obama will make the American taxpayer pay their damages? It makes you wonder if Lockheed has a sweet business deal worked out with the Muslims Brotherhood.
This reminds me of something. When it comes to giving weapons away Bill Clinton had everybody beat. He got together with Lockheed and Boeing once before. They sold China the weapons technology they would EVER need to hurt us. He just went through the Commerce Department. Congress didn’t even have a say.
Bill Clinton also gave North Korea all the plutonian it needed to make nuclear warheads, which in turn helped Iran and Iraq build up.
And YOU thought that impeachment was all about Monica.
When it comes to putting us in REAL danger…the Democrats win.
While millions of veterans are waiting years for their disability checks, Obama is at this very minute, spending over $5 billion dollars just for the three days he is spending in Las Vegas to practice his “debates.”
Just think: He could stay at the White House and practice, for that three days, and with the money saved, he could send a check to every man who has given his service to his country.
So far, the Veterans Department has only given out…to ALL veterans: 5 billion. Yep, —that’s three days of Vegas for Obama.
But..hey! It’s VEGAS man! Beyonce is waiting! So what if the veterans are committng suicides? There are fundraisers to go to!
So—-when the armed and dangerous enemies of America come to attack us…
Democrats win. And you…good American terroist patriot that you are…lose.
Nobody Knows where our tax dollars REALLY go, because as you see, they just spend the money…and don’t keep any records.
How would you feel f you ask your wife where last week’s paycheck went and she said,…”I don’t know…I don’t have the recipts honey, I just spend the money and throw them away!”
And Nobody Knows why we paid over $20 million dollars to buy firewood to keep Afghanistan warm…but then again, according to our government, we don’t have to know.
Nobody also doesn’t know why they are sending “gay” ambassordors to Muslim Nations, (the ambassador Chris Stevens was by many reports, gay) when they know in Muslim nations, being gay can bring you a death sentence. And since Obama has welcomed gays, and transformed the military into “outing” the gays in all the units, even though he knows this may put the men in more danger in Muslims nations, can he be held responsible for their deaths?
Why is he not ‘protecting” his gay buddies in Muslim nations? And why are we not talking about this?
Nobody Knows why the man who made this awful video everybody is talking about, gave over a million dollars to Obama’s reelection, and Nobody Knows if he would do it again, or if he’ll get his money back.
Probably not since they don’t keep any records, Nobody Knows where that money went.
Why hasn’t Obama come out to “protect” the rights of “gay” ambassadors?
Nobody Knows, but we can guess.
