How about some happy news for once?
How PROUD are we of our American soldiers, who ONCE AGAIN, came to the aid of the French! They took down a terrorist while they were on vacation no less….
And one more happy picture! Maybe?

The gracious amfortas sent me this from Australia. The news is, one of our Marines saved over 100 lives in Kenya at that mall bombing. And I swear to god, nowhere have I heard this reported on any news outlet. All we are hearing is that when the evil Republicans shut down the government the FIRST people who Obama is going to punish is our military, who will NOT get paid, but will have to keep on working.
Miss Lerner of the IRS, WILL get paid, even though she costs good decent Americans a lot of money. And all of Congress will still get paid. And their wives. And the NSA. And the TSA. And the teachers. But all the parks will be closed because they don’t want you on them anyway. (unless of course you are an illegal growing pot.)
What I did hear last night, is that “President” Obama has declared November to be Muslim month, where we should all recognize Islam and Muslims as wonderful people.
American soldiers are the best. And yet, Obama ignores their heroics unless of course, he benefits from their actions.

A former marine emerged as a hero of the Nairobi siege yesterday after he was credited with saving up to 100 lives.
The ex soldier was having coffee at the Westgate mall when it was attacked by Islamists on Saturday.
With a gun tucked into his waistband, he was pictured helping two women from the complex.
Despite Kenyan police assurances that they had taken control of the building, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 hostages were still being held by a band of attackers, possibly as many as 13.
The former soldier is said to have returned to the building on a dozen occasions, despite intense gunfire.
A friend in Nairobi said: ‘What he did was so heroic. He was having coffee with friends when it happened.
‘He went back in 12 times and saved 100 people. Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.’

I just got this one: It’s a great laugh!

This one is dedicated to all my friends who ever taught school, parented children or served their country.
A former Sergeant, having served his time with the Marine Corps, took a new job as a school teacher, but just before the school year started, he injured his back.
He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn’t noticeable. On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school.
The punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and decided to see how tough he really was before trying any pranks. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk.
When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and promptly stapled the tie to his chest.
There was dead silence.
He had no trouble with discipline that year.
Hillary Clinton and Leon Penetta were all over themselves apologizing for a video that was posted of four Marines urinating on three dead Taliban bodies. The Pentagon is mad.
KABUL, Afghanistan — A video showing four United States Marines urinating on three dead Taliban fighters provoked anger and condemnation on Thursday in Afghanistan and around the world, raising fears in Washington that the images could incite anti-American sentiment at a particularly delicate moment in the decade-old Afghan war.
(You’re kidding me right? Like there IS no anti-American sentiment now?)
“This act by American soldiers is simply inhuman and condemnable in the strongest possible terms,” he said. The actions of the Marines in the video could amount to a violation of the Geneva Conventions.”
Has Hillary forgotten all those people who were KILLED on 9/11? You can’t even find their corpses. At least those Marines left the Taliban bodies to bury. We just dump our bits and pieces of blown up soldiers in some empty landfill in Virginia.
WAR is hell, and unfortunately, our liberal elites have NO idea what’s it’s like to spend day after day getting shot at, and then finding out, all your fighting has been for nothing because the enemy is being forgiven and helped back into the country with the blessings of the Commander-In-Chief, who goes by the common name of our enemy: Barack Hussain Obama.
Many people feel that the U.S. exit from the battlefield is no different from when the Russians left Afghanistan after ten years. There was no American victory there. The Taliban considers that they have beaten the Americans. That HAS to be hard on our brave soldiers.
Some men in war…just snap. At least they didn’t do what the Taliban do to their enemies: cut off their heads, and desecrate their privates. Right. The Taliban honors the Geneva Convention.
What a joke.
I’m stopping here because this is so uncalled for: Hillary should have said today: “War is hell, for everyone.” And walked off.
My friend Mona, after seeing the video…expressed it well:
Sorry, but when our troops see the filth and horrendous pain that those people inflict on their own, and our people and country what those soldiers did was mild to what I am sure most would cheer them on to do. How can our men feel anything but that they are actually not even worth wasting their piss on, and I feel for those men. Who could blame them for how they felt and the one who took and posted this should be pissed on and hung as far as I am concerned as who ever put those men in harm’s way: what fools do, and I do not mean those Marines either!
