This one really has my dander up!
Timed of course for the November election, Michael J Fox recently appeared in an ad, promoting Embryonic Stem Cell Research (ESCR) that has obviously been designed to imply that Republicans just don’t care about sick people, especially Conservative Republicans. That’s right Conservatives just don’t care about: old people, poor people, Black people, sick people, children, teachers, homeless people, schools, people shot and killed with guns, warm fuzzy Muslims, trees, weeds, endangered insects, people killed in foreign countries by tyrants, civil rights, Global Warming, Global Cooling, and certainly they don’t care about our environment or any kind of animals. I hope that about covers it. Oh please excuse me I forgot about not caring about Katrina victims.
Now, I will have to agree that at least most Conservatives aren’t too into hugging very many weeds, or hugging some of their liberal creepy crawly brothers, but to say or imply that Conservatives do not care about sick people just because they do not believe in destroying the life of a human fertilized egg, just to steal the stem cells is offensive and a malicious deceptive lie.
First, there is no scientific evidence that Embryonic Stem Cells will lead to cures for anything. Moreover, like the Global Warming bunch, weed huggers, and the PETA people, the purpose of Embryonic Stem Cell or ESC research fanatics, is not to cure sick people, but to provide a sick way to finance Cloning research and suck more money out of the Tax Payers already empty pockets, to pay for this week’s project, hobby, or pet cause.
”These embryos are frozen and they will be thrown out anyway, they are just leftovers”. [That brings to mind a movie I saw once about orphan children that were called leftovers] Secondly, one should question the morality behind creating these leftover embryos in the first place. Moreover, what happens when the leftovers run out?
Well my friends they will create new human leftovers only to destroy them for more useless research. It will become a big moneymaking business just like the black market sale of aborted human baby body parts, this is big business. This demand is what is driving the need for more and more abortions and now they will want more and more fertilized embryos. The demand could be so great that human sexuality would be reduced to the harvesting of embryos, or fetuses for profit, moreover, actual reproduction would be a by product and or an after thought. This not about sick people with incurable diseases it is about sick people that want to create yet another toilet for taxpayers hard earned money, and using people with incurable diseases as pawns in their game of defrauding the public.
While there is some evidence that adult or umbilical cord stem cells possibly could be involved in a cure or relief from some medical problems, and despite the lack of U.S. taxpayer money, Embryonic Stem Cell research has gone on all over the world, and still, there is absolutely no evidence, anywhere on this earth anyway, that ESC’s are a prime candidate for curing Alzheimer’s, Spinal cord damage, Brain damage, Lou Gerick’s disease or the Parkinson’s disease that Michael J Fox is pledged with, or the cure of any other disease for that matter. This just brings false hope to people with these terrible afflictions.
In case one would wonder how these empty and sometimes useless causes like Embryonic Stem cell, research, global warming, research, or the Extermination of Humanity in order to save the Environment, research get started; one should just follow the money. There is a lot of money involved in research projects, legitimate or not, some of the projects are led by people that have too much money, not enough to do and too much time to do it in.
This is why we do not hear too much from the opposition, no one is paying the legitimist scientists to waste their time proving what should be obvious to anyone with a functioning organ of thought, or in the case of Global warming enough since to read history. Of course there is global warming it has been going on for thousands of years, long before the environmental invading humans were involved in emitting anything but ammonia or methane gas caused by relieving themselves from natural human waste. But then of course according to the Enviromaniacs we humans especially Conservative ones, are not part of the ecosystem and do nothing but destroy things and hate sick people.
THE BOTTOM LINE: The point is to check out which rock these magnets crawl out from under to make these outrages attacks on people. Whether they are the environmental invading tree hating humans that are trying to melt the glaciers by causing Global Warming, or what our left wing extremist tax sucking liberalists are calling Fire Fighters that are trying to put out a forest fire instead of letting it burn because it was started by a natural lightening strike, or Conservatives that hate sick people, poor people or any other kind of people. If one is lucky enough to find that rock one will usually uncover yet another empty cause led by empty heads filling their empty time, soliciting a lot of money, just so they can pay for ad’s that say or imply that Conservatives just don’t Care and they especially hate sick people.

Driven by guilt???
By de Andréa
Sometimes my brain itches; I think it is because I have a problem making connections or connecting the dots as they say. It must have something to do with my dyslexia, the genius disease that Einstein, who failed the third grade, and I share. On the one hand wondering why some of the people in this country, especially people in our government, seem to be so blind about what the overall true agenda of our enemy really is, and all the political correctness that seems to tie our hands. And on the other hand buying into this hating and contempt of America trend. If one truly hates something, isn’t it easier to let it go, or throw it away? In any case one would certainly not be inclined to defend it.
Maybe the fog is beginning to clear, it seems the closer I get to putting things together, the more my brain itches; and it has been itching a lot lately. One cannot deny that there is a hate America trend going on. I don’t mean just finding fault with what has been going on in the U.S. government in the last several decades; I mean a true distain and the desire to abandon the very foundation of America, and the drive to change it into something that resembles a third world country, and the constant apologies for what America is; a free and wealthy capitalistic society. The end result of hating something is the unwillingness to fight for it.
I believe this supercilious attitude toward America could have something to do with guilt; one may feel guilty for living in such a blessed and wonderful country, enjoying all the good things in life. After all, our poor are actually quite well off compared to some people in third world countries. I have come to this conclusion because it seems to me, that some of the wealthiest people in this country, hate America the most, i.e. George Soros a wealthy American billionaire, made his money mostly by investing in Capitalism, (hating the very system that provides him with his wealth) has spent millions on his anti-America agenda. The majority of Hollywood actors, with a few exceptions, hate America. (A few feel guilty enough to commit treason in order to bring down America,)
Now with all this guilt ridden hate-America money flowing into Washington DC, this has just got to have an effect on the politics of our Government, and the possible out come of this war. Is this why the Democrat party and some Republicans have sold their soul to the extreme left, all because of guilt? Moreover, in connecting the dots, is this why our warm fuzzy left leaning friends are willing to let go of Americas Judao Christian values and the American philosophy and trade it for the retrograded ideology of our enemy, all because we feel guilty?
THE BOTTOM LINE: God; my friends has blessed this country beyond what it deserves, however feeling guilty because of the gifts of God is truly a sin; instead we should be thankful for our God fearing and Christian For-fathers. We must still be riding their wave. If the rest of this world would turn from the ideologies of our enemy to the Real God of Abraham they to would be blessed as America has been blessed. The secret of getting rid of ones guilt is forgiveness and thankfulness, not the destruction and contempt of ones blessings.

Rush Limbaugh, Immediately following the U.N. resolution for isolating North Korea, asked what will happen when North Korea Ignores the resolution and continues to forge ahead with their nuclear testing? “Will the U.N. then send them a threatening letter, maybe with bold type, maybe with all CAPITAL LETTERS?” Well guess what? The U.N., in the wake of the dear leader Kim Jong Il’s announcement of yet another nuclear test, is threatening yet another resolution, this sounds more than just vaguely familiar. Didn’t they do something similar more than a few times regarding W.M.D’s in Iraq?
According to Bill King, former Chief Patrol Agent of the U.S. Border Patrol, “this year the Border Patrol will catch approximately 150,000 non-Mexican aliens called OTM’s, (other than Mexicans), trying to cross our southern border”. That is more than 410 per day 24/7. Moreover a clear 85 percent of these non Mexicans or OTM’s are Middle Easterners, and that is not the worst of it, after they are caught, they are given a court date and then released, inside this country, (along with all the others that they didn't catch) with documents that allow them to travel freely. If that isn’t enough to make one develop a great desire to choke an enemy loving America hating legislator, then try this. Almost none of these OTM illegals ever show up on their assigned court date. One cannot help but wonder how many of these 150,000 Middle Eastern foreign invaders are, Muslim Terrorist enemies. I suppose we will find out when it’s to late. One might want to buy some extra shells for grandpa’s 12 gauge before there is a ban.
While our kids, according to government statistics, are becoming obese, they are at the same time prevented from participating in old fashion exercise. Daa, I think our educators may just need an education. School Principles and School District Supervisors say are afraid of civil suits if children get hurt while playing these dangerous games that all of us skinny people used to play when we were kids. Dangerous games like Dodge ball, Touch foot ball, Basket ball, and now Tag, moreover, the most dangerous game of all, Hide and Seek. I wonder sometimes how we all survived playing these dangerous games back then, or maybe they were not as dangerous as they are today.
A Vote for Intolerance:
What if we would blowup a few Muslim Mosques/terrorist training schools when ever a Muslim says something publicly that is disrespectful to an American. Before long there would be no more Mosques/terrorist training schools. Moreover maybe the Muslims would all go home. I know that sounds just a little politically incorrect. Oh well!
Gorbachev says, (but of course who cares what Gorby says) a border fence is like the Berlin wall. Your President Reagan said to “tare down this wall”. Well Mr. Gorby, I've got news for you, the Berlin wall was to keep citizens imprisoned. The U.S. border fence would be to keep foreign invaders out. [Ooooh this is good writing de Andrea.]

The information below is true and accurate:
We had a neighbor when I lived in DC, who was part of the Secret Service Presidential detail for many years. His stories of Kennedy and Johnson were the same as those I heard from the guys who flew the Presidents' plane and yes, Kennedy did have Marilyn Monroe flown in for secret "dates," and LBJ was a typical Texan, a "good ole boy" womanizer.
Nixon, Bush 41, and Carter, never cheated on their wives. Clinton cheated, but couldn't match Kennedy or LBJ in style or variety.
The elder Bush and current President Bush makes it a point to thank and take care of the air crews who fly them around. When the president flies, there are several planes that also go; one carries the armored limo, another, security detail, plus usually a press aircraft. Both Bush's made it a point to stay home on holidays, so the Air Force and security people could have a day with their families.
Hillary Clinton was arrogant and orally abusive to her security detail. She forbade her daughter, Chelsea, from exchanging pleasantries with them. Sometimes Chelsea, miffed at her mother's obvious conceit and mean spiritedness ignored her demands and exchanged pleasantries regardless, but never in her mother's presence. Chelsea really was a nice, kindhearted, and lovely young lady. The consensus opinion was that Chelsea loved her Mom but did not like her. Hillary Clinton was continuously rude and abrasive to those who were charged to protect her life. Her security detail dutifully did their job, as professionals should, but they all loathed her and wanted to be on a different detail. Hillary Clinton was despised by the Secret Service as a whole.
Former President Bill Clinton was much more amiable than his wife. Often the Secret Service would cringe at the verbal attacks Hillary would use against her husband. They were embarrassed for his sake by the manner and frequency in which she verbally insulted him, sometimes in the presence of the Secret Service, and sometimes behind closed doors. Even so Hillary Clinton would scream and yell so loudly that everyone could hear what she was saying. Many felt sorry for President Clinton and most wondered why he tolerated it instead of just divorcing his "attack dog" wife. It was crystal clear that the Clinton's neither liked nor respected each other and that this was true long before the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Theirs is genuinely a "marriage of convenience."
Chelsea was much closer to her father than her mother, even after the Lewinsky scandal, which hurt her gravely. Bill Clinton did in fact have charisma, and occasionally would smile at or shake hands with his security detail. Still, he always displayed an obvious air of superiority and believed him to be disingenuous, false, and that he did nothing without a motive that in some way would enhance his image and political career. He was polite, but not kind. They did not particularly like him and nobody trusted him.
WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN:
Al Gore was the male version of Hillary Clinton. They were friendlier toward each other than either of them was towards former President Clinton. They were not intimate, so please don't read that into it. They were very close in a political way. Tipper Gore was generally nice and pleasant. She initially liked Hillary but soon after the election she had her "pegged" and no longer liked her or associated with her except for events that were politically obligatory.
Al Gore was far more left wing than Bill Clinton. Al Gore resented Bill Clinton and thought he was too "centrist.” He despised all Republicans. His hatred was bitter and this was long before he announced his candidacy for President. This hatred was something that he and Hillary had in common. They often said as much, even in the presence of their security detail. Neither of them trusted Bill Clinton and, the Secret Service opined; neither of them even liked Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton did have some good qualities, whereas Al Gore and Hillary had none, in the view of their security details. Al Gore, like Hillary was very rude and arrogant toward his security detail. He was extremely unappreciative and would not hesitate to scold them in the presence of their peers for minor details over which they had no control. Al Gore also looked down on them, as they finally observed and learned with certainty on one occasion. Al got angry at his children and pointed at his detail and said, "Do you want to grow up and be like them?”
Word of this insult by the former Vice-president quickly spread and he became as disliked by the Secret Service as Hillary. Most of them prayed Al Gore would not be elected President, and they really did have private celebrations in a few of their homes after President Bush won. This was not necessarily to celebrate President Bush's election, but to celebrate Al Gore's defeat.
Everyone in the Secret Service wants to be on First Lady Laura Bush's detail. Without exception, they concede that she is perhaps the nicest and most kind person they have ever had the privilege of serving. Where Hillary patently refused to allow her picture to be taken with her security detail, Laura Bush doesn't even have to be asked, she offers. She doesn't just shake their hand and say, "Thank you.” Very often, she will give members of her detail a kindhearted hug to express her appreciation. There is nothing false about her. This is her genuine nature. Her security detail considers her to be a "breath of fresh air.” They joke that comparing Laura Bush with Hillary Clinton is like comparing "Mother Teresa" with the "Wicked Witch of the North."
Likewise, the Secret Service considers President Bush to be a gem of a man to work for. He always treats them with genuine respect and he always trusts and listens to their expert advice. They really like the Crawford, Texas detail, every time the president goes to Crawford he has a Bar-B-Q for his security detail and he helps serve their meals. He sits with them, eats with them, and talks with them. He knows each of them, and calls them by their first name as a show of affection. He always asks about their family, the names of which he always remembers. They believe that he is deeply and genuinely appreciative of their service. They could not like, love, or respect anyone more than President Bush. Most of them did not know they would feel this way, until they had an opportunity to work for him and learn that his manner was genuine and consistent. It has never changed since he began his Presidency. He always treats them with the utmost respect, kindness, and compassion. It is important for Americans to have a true inside understanding of what kind of men their Presidents really are.

In the “Gun Free Zone” of Columbine High School in Jefferson County Colorado, an armed school security officer and S.W.A.T. teams stood ineptly and disgracefully by, while our school children were being systematically murdered just a few feet away inside the school library. This happened in 1999 and since then, these types of school executions have been repeated unabated too many times, what’s more, little or nothing has been done to stop these outrages attacks on our children from happening, again and again.
Recently, President Bush Addressed a group of citizens, parents and State and county officials including Sheriff Dawsy and Attorney General Gonzales at the National 4H Conference center in Chevy Chase Maryland. The purpose was to discuss solutions about the lack of school security in our public school system in the aftermath of more school shootings. After all the speeches and Q and A, the problem was not even addressed, much less any solutions suggested. A lot of rhetoric about the psychology of students wanting to commit suicide, and opening the doors of communication etcetera, all good prophylactic subjects, but none of this will prevent someone from coming into a school with a gun and blowing away our kids such as the recent Amish Massacre in Pennsylvania.
Not only have our schools been legislated as "Gun Free Zones" by our so- called Federal Government-Protectors, but they have also been determined, not by representation of and by and for the people, but by a new dictatorial process, known as “Legislation Without Representation”, as well as in violation of the first Amendment, to be “God Free Zones” as well. While they are obviously not gun free, they are however, for the most part legally or illegally God free. One cannot help but wonder however, in both cases, if this has something to do with the real problem of protecting our school children.
Possibly we would do better at protecting our children from these killers than trusting in our Federal Protectors, by carrying a Bible in one hand and a gun in the other. If these cowardly murdering sons of Satan won’t pay any attention to God’s word in one hand then shoot them with the gun in the other before they kill our children. [Oooh that is good preaching de Andrea]
We can pass more anti-gun laws, we can attempt to raise the self-esteem of our children, we can self police our media not to sensationalize these outrages crimes, we can psychoanalyze our society to try to understand why warm fuzzy people go bad, and on and on. While some of these could be honorable endeavors, none address the problem, or offer any solution to the problem of protecting our children from these psychopathic killers and predators.
Interestingly enough a solution has been found and is already in place, Israel, for example, has for many years, armed not only its security guards and principles, but also teachers in the classrooms. Thailand is another country which has successfully armed their school personnel. Everywhere that this type of protection has been tried, it has been successful, yes even in the U.S. In 1995 the State of Utah, armed not only teachers, principles and security guards with concealed weapons, (pistols) but even parents, picking up their children from school are also armed. They have not kept this a secret in their State and as a result for the eleven years that Utah has had this program, they have not experienced any murders or any gun related problems in their schools.
Even without a program of this type in place, a random defence by principal Joel Myrick in a Mississippi school in 1997 thwarted an attack after several people were already shot at pearl high school. Principal Myrick retrieved his semi automatic 45 from the trunk of his car and managed to stop the perpetrator on his way to Pearl Junior High before the maniac could continue his rampage. Within a few days of the Pearl school shooting, an armed citizen stopped another attack in an Edinboro, Pennsylvania school. There are many such successful cases reported in schools throughout the U.S. One cannot help think, what if Principal Myrick had been able to carry his gun instead of having to retrieve it from his car, or better yet, if at least some of the teachers were armed, there may be a few more innocent people alive today, in that one incident alone.
In almost all cases any state could easily amend what ever existing State laws that would prevent teachers and other school staff, (after going through the required training and licensing program), from carrying a concealed weapon on school property. This would not even violate the federal “Gun Free Zone” laws since they do not apply to licensed CCW permit holders. At first this could be a voluntary program for existing teachers and school personnel, however it should eventually be required for all people who are applying for a teaching credential, planning to be teachers, to go through a special training program, and acquiring a CCW permit. Eventually, it would just be a part of the ordinary curriculum of becoming a responsible teacher.
The only way that a program of aggressive defence like this can work, is if the teachers were willing to decisively and responsibly kill someone that has obviously come into a school for the purpose of committing murder and or great bodily harm. In other words if some stranger pops into ones classroom and points a gun at a student, at first chance the trained teacher should simply shoot to kill the perpetrator, as opposed to trying to talk him into dropping his gun, and having a group hug, which will usually result in an innocent person getting killed, maybe even the teacher the students only hope. The teacher would have to assume intent to kill by the person pointing a gun at a student. This is why it would be imperative that the teacher have the proper training. This should be as much a part of teacher training as math, English, and science.
This type of program will of course be met with enormous opposition by the few hug a weed pacifists in our society, that would rather all sit around wondering why we just can’t all learn to get along with our warm fuzzy psychopathic murderers, and just try to understand why they might want to kill our children or whether their parents were mean to them, or maybe we as a community have done something to provoke this behavior. This of course, is sort of what we have been doing for years and I think we can honestly say—it is not working very well. Maybe it is time to try something that has already been proven to work even in our own country, as well as others.
Some may say, well how about just arming school principals and security guards? Unless we can have a principal or a security guard in every classroom, it would be useless, let’s not forget that Columbine had an armed security guard who cowered along with the disorganized S.W.A.T. team worrying more about, the political ramifications of shooting children that were shooting other children, than storming the place and putting a stop to these murders. No, every teacher, in every classroom, must be trained and armed. [The investigation of the Columbine fiasco by the way, is still on going]
THE BOTTOM LINE: Schools are magnets for psychopathic killers because it is a pretty safe bet that there will be not be any significant resistance in a “Gun Free Zone” against anyone bent on killing helpless children. Once a program of armed school personnel is in place, as in the State of Utah, a perpetrator would likely be intimidated enough not to carry out his intent of murder and mayhem in a school classroom.
If our Federal Government had only one job, it would be, according to our Constitution, to protect the citizens of this country from a foreign invasion. Interestingly the Constitution does not stipulate where, or what kind of foreign invasion, or by whom. Whether it is at the boarder by a foreign nation, or at the threshold of our schools by a psychopathic killer, our Federal and State Governments have a responsibility to protect, and prevent our young citizens from having to live everyday in fear of death or great bodily harm just to get an education.
If I were a Parent of a young child entering a government school or any school for that matter, for the first time today, the first question I would ask is… What kind of protection program does this school have in place for my child’s safety, if let’s say, a would-be kidnaper or murderer would enter this school and point a gun at my child’s head? I doubt at present, any school in my State could even come close to offering a satisfactory answer to that question. Then I would have to say… I am sorry, then I cannot place my child in this school. If even a minority of parents would do that, I can guarantee something would be done. What do you think??? I would like to hear from some teachers as well as parents. In the words of Ben Stein, Anybody? Anybody?
Just a side bar: I even carry my gun to my church and no body knows, so not even the pacifists anti gun people are bothered. They don’t even know that they are being protected by a Bible in one hand, and a gun in the other…

If one has ever traveled across the Altamont Pass between the San Joaquin valley, and the San Francisco Bay Area, one cannot help notice all the thousands of dead bodies strewn all over the hills that separate the valley from the coast of California U.S.A.. Before one calls the authorities regarding this genocide, please let me explain:
More than twenty years ago approximately a half dozen companies with some private investments and mostly government tax grants embarked on a project to create electric power by harnessing the wind. The dead bodies, mostly still standing, some are lying on the ground as if to say please give me a decent burial in honor of my effort, are those of giant windmills. Not just a few, or even a few hundred, but over 7000 of these mechanical remains, stand or lay on the ground as a grim reminder of a failed endeavor that has managed to kill more than fifty thousand birds, some of which are endangered, according to the feather huggers.
I will refrain from calling it an experiment, because to experiment would be to erect 1, 2 or even 3 or so of these machines and collect the necessary data to measure the effectiveness of its design. Then one would make the necessary changes, modifications, and or improvements to make it competitive with other forms energy production. When and if success is achieved then one would duplicate the achievement, and voila, the result would be lots of cheap energy. Or in the case of failure one would scrap 1, 2, or 3 of these expensive experimental machines instead of thousands.
But this was not a failed experiment; this was a monumental failure in project management, among other even more important basic philosophical and ideological declinations. To design and build one of these money toilets that doesn’t work, or is, just too expensive to maintain, is an honorable attempt or experiment. However to build another and to continue to repeat the failure thousands of times expecting a different result is not only one of the clinical definitions of insanity; it is the epitome of ignoring history and the destiny to repeat it, even if it is, as resent as yesterday or even today.
To maintain a philosophy that continues to repeat the same unworkable mistakes, and does not provide any additional positive results, is one of the academic aberrations that our children are being indoctrinated with in our schools from K through Graduate School, at least for the past four decades. Moreover, it is accepted by more and more of our ever-growing anti-American leftist society everyday, and as a result, our governments, local, State and Federal, are becoming a redundant waste of repeated failures.
Our legislators are passing more unenforceable laws that do not stop crime anymore than the last bunch of redundant laws, and without the understanding that in a free society the only purpose of law is to support and protect ones rights, freedom, and liberty. Moreover, philosophically, law was never intended to deter crime; rather its intent was to point out the wrong-doing and convict. This is why more redundant laws do not prevent more redundant crime anymore than a thousand inefficient windmills will be any more efficient than one, two or three inefficient windmills.
THE BOTTOM LINE: That being said, the enforcement of a few basic fundamental laws designed to support and protect a society of free law-abiding citizens, will be a thousand times more effective than the thousands of redundant freedom destructive laws that are being passed by our legislatures. The electorate doesn’t seem to have enough to do, but to grow government into a bigger and more powerful entity for the purpose of protecting and glorifying itself rather than its people.
The people created the government, not the other way around. When the created becomes more powerful than the creator it is time to shut it down, and take it back. Moreover like the windmills, the politicians have become a redundant waste of space as opposed to a positive contribution to the process of maintaining a Free State. The Government of this great country America, seems to have become a Nation bent on monumental failure... Think about it…

To win or not to win, that is the question???
Technically the U.S. has not won a war since the Second World War. How is it, that the most powerful country in the world both economically and militarily, can no longer win a war? Answer, because we are afraid to win. Every war, that the U.S. has been involved in since the 1940’s has been a defensive/political war, as opposed to an offensive war to win. All because it is has become politically incorrect to actually win a war, it is bullysh, and aggressive, intimidating, destructive, an ugly Man’s Thing, and it is definitely not a warm a friendly way to encourage the concept of all getting along. We should all go hug an endangered weed and smoke a few funny cigaretts together, possibly enroll in an anger management class instead.
America has been feminized; and emasculated; it has become afraid of offending its neighbors. So far our government has no intention of winning this war in Iraq or Afghanistan. War has become a political endeavor rather than a military one; it has gone from a military blitz to political persuasion. One will not win wars by trying to convince the enemy the error of its ways. Moreover, while we are trying to get in touch with our feminine side and trying to nurture and encourage group hugs with our warm fuzzy enemy, they will bleed us the death. “War my friends, is not an endeavor to win a popularity contest or even make friends, it is in fact, an extreme and overwhelming exercise of survival.” Amen-de Andréa.
Our Government leadership would do well by reading a well known book written over 2400 years ago in about the year 500 BC by a Chinese warrior/author and philosopher Sun Tzu, called the Art of War. (Reference a previous article by de Andréa March 6, 2006 titled The Art of War) It teaches the practical and philosophical purpose of war. Basically the only purpose of war is to win, if one does not have the purpose to win, then one has no business going to war, because one has no purpose. And with out purpose one will lose, such as in the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, and in all other minor wars that the U.S. has been involved in since WW II.
Will the Iraq war go the same way as the Korean or Vietnam War? Yes, because we have no purpose to win. If the purpose is to persuade, and as mentioned earlier trying to convince a Nation as in this case, the Nation of Islam, the error of their ways, we will not win this war. Moreover, specifically to the Iraqi and the Afghani war, to attempt to persuade a people to become a Democracy whose Religion is a Totalitarian Ideology supported by Religious Law that demands a Religious conversion to Islam or death to everyone, a murderous Theocracy; is an act of futility. We would be asking them to give up their Religion and replace it with a new form of government that is completely foreign to their historical spiritual ideology. We are certain to lose the fight for Democracy for that specific reason alone; one cannot turn Satan into a warm fuzzy purring kitty just because one wants to.
In all of history, real peace has never come by negotiation or political persuasion or by sociological group hugs with the enemy. Real Lasting Peace has only ever come through war and because somebody wins and somebody loses, moreover, then the winner can force his will on the loser, and then in a generation or two they may buy into a new form of government, one may call it whatever one likes, it is, what it is. This by the way is exactly what happened in Germany and in Japan, for example we beat the Japanese into submission, and then General Mac Arthur took over as Supreme Dictator of Japan until the people were ready for a new way of life, and look at them now. [Need more be said about that?]
Because the military has developed and adopted more rules that direct how not to engage the enemy than rules of how to engage the enemy, it shows that we have no intention of winning this war. In reading some of the military bloggs written by solders in Iraq, one can see this immediately. Many talk about going on patrol, only it is not patrol as one has been taught in Combat School, it is called presence patrol. It has no mission except to provide a presence, it is like an attempt to persuade the enemy to give one a hug along side of the road. These are the type of patrols that get bombed everyday, and get a lot of GI’s killed. It is a waste of human lives because it accomplishes nothing.The American people, like in the Vietnam War will not be content to be sanguineted to death for ever. And like in Vietnam the people will eventually lose their will to fight this war. I believe the people have the will to win this war, but no one can be very interested in being bled to death. Moreover prosecuting our own solders for killing the enemy is sort of a morale buster to say the least. (Check a previous article by de Andréa titled the Pendleton 8).
If our Government was less concerned about being politically correct and instead just wanted to win this war, what would they do differently? First, it would be an offensive war, if one remembers; it sort of started that way. But when we overwhelmingly gained semi control of the country we seemed to have lost our will to aggressively finish winning the war and taking absolute control. I guess the Pentagon just thought the enemy would roll over and give up, well they didn’t; besides, I guess the rest of the world might see us as bullies rather than benevolent. If one wants to be seen as benevolent, one should not go to war but should instead give away ones country; that would be benevolent.
One must ask oneself, how did we win the Second World War? Answer, we intended to win, at all costs, it was a matter of survival. This is why when President Truman found that the country was at a cross road, to win or to lose he used overwhelming odds and brought Japanese Imperialism to its knees, because we intended to win and nothing short of winning was going to be acceptable.
To win this war we must get back to how we started, let defence take a back seat, and once again become offensive. The rest of the world might not see us as benevolent but the American people will support it because we will win this war. Like in football, one must certainly have a good defence; however, it is the offensive team that wins the game.
For example, in Fallujah, we fought the war on the enemies’ terms, one terrorist at a time; it is called urban warfare, door to door, this is the most dangerous type of warfare, we lost a bunch of our solders, and accomplished almost nothing. According to our intelligence Fallujah was and still is a center of terrorism, a place for the enemy to go to and from, and to re-arm.
We should have carpet bombed Fallujah until there was not a terrorist in site to hug. We would have accomplished a plethora of objectives. First, we would have stunned the enemy, really knocked them off balance. Second, we would have destroyed all the terrorists in Fallujah and their ability to use it as a stronghold. Third, we would not have lost any of our solders. Then before the world has a chance to get politically correct and start calling us bullies and asking why can’t we just all get along, we hit them again and again and before the enemy can take a breath, we hit them again. Military intelligence has a whole list of Al Qaida and other terrorist strongholds in Iraq.
At the same time we should fly sorties along the borders, (we should get serious about our own borders as well) if anyone is seen crossing the border anywhere but a guarded border crossing, we take them out. If a terrorist can’t get in, and we destroy all the terrorist strongholds in Iraq with no let-up, this may just encourage any stragglers to give it up, at least temporarily. If it doesn’t, we go to the next step; most importantly we never let up until we win, period. The only element of humanity that Islam respects is the demonstration of overwhelming power.
Yes some so-called innocent people will be killed. Like I said if one wants to be benevolent do not go to war, instead we should give away our country. Dropping not one, but two atomic bombs on Japan wasn’t very benevolent and it killed a lot of so-called innocent people, but it ended the war, and most importantly we won. This; is the purpose of war.
Then we should cut Iraq up into three states, Kurdistan, Sunnistan, and Shiitestan. Create a Central Government with a warm fuzzy benevolent dictator and three State Governments and then leave. And bomb Iran, Pakistan, Sirya , and Sudan back into the “Stone Age” where we, and they, feel more comfortable, this might just discourage Islam for another thousand years or so.
THE BOTTOM LINE: I might sound like an arm chair tough guy, that doesn’t care about human life. But I am not! I am a realest and I do care about all human life especially mine and my family and other American lives, more importantly I understand the Muslim mind and spirit. I detest war, and would choose to stay out of it if we could. But if we commit ourselves to war we have an obligation to win, and, in the quickest way possible, using everything we have at our deposal, and with the least American lives lost. In answer to the question, to win or not to win? We must decide to win these wars in Iraq and Afghanistan now before it is too late, or otherwise while we are busy trying to convince our warm fuzzy enemy to try to get along or make good little Christian Americans out of them, Iran and Pakistan will attack Israel and North Korea will attack South Korea and Japan and anybody else they think they can reach.
Remember the words of General George Patton? “The idea is, that we get the enemy to die for his country.”
The magnanimous concept that everyone including Islam should or wants to be free is both noble and ignorant. In the case of Islam, freedom is the most distant thing from their warm fuzzy deceptive Muslim minds. In spite of surface appearances, Islam is not interested in freedom, Democracy, rights, secular laws, choice, or hugging Americans; they are only interested in the domination of our world .
Just a last minute side note submitted by a subscriber who shall be known as Mr. Q:
Just prior to WW l, General Black Jack Pershing while in the Philippines, Captured 50 Muslim terrorists after several attacks on U.S. forces there. He tied them to posts for execution. He had his men bring two pigs and slaughtered them in front of the now horrified terrorists. Muslims detest pork because they believe pigs are filthy animals. Most of them simply refuse to touch it, nor any of the by-products. To them, eating or touching a pig, its meat, its blood etc., it is to be instantly barred from paradise (and those virgins) and doomed to hell. The solders then soaked their bullets in pig’s blood, and proceeded to execute 49 of the terrorists by firing squad. The solders then dug a hole, dumped in the terrorists, and covered them with pig blood, entrails, etc. Then they let the 50th man go. And for the next forty two-years, there was not a single Muslim terrorist attack, anywhere in the world.
Maybe it is time for this segment of history to repeat itself, maybe in Iraq? The question is where are we going to find another Black Jack Pershing or anyone with the guts to do what ever it may require to win this war???

Has anyone besides me noticed that all the school shootings and the murders of our children has occurred in a gun free-zone or a so-called gun-free school? How can our children be shot to death by these murders, with a gun, in a gun free-zone? Unless I am sorely mistaken this sounds suspiciously like an oxymoron to me. When are we actually going to get serious about protecting our children while in school?
We seem to be very serious about unprotected sex in our schools by teaching our children to arm themselves with a condom, moreover, we teach them how to use it. But we don’t protect them from a would-be murderer with a gun. Our children deserve to be safe, especially while attending a government school?
After the Columbine shootings the US Congress went into special session and passed three more Federal gun laws to prevent this from ever happing again, even though the murderers violated 17 already existing Local, State and Federal gun laws before they even entered the school building. As a matter of fact at least eight more school shootings followed almost immediately after the new gun laws preventing this from ever happening again were signed into law by the President. They were still blowing on the ink.
Of course one should get the picture that at least gun laws alone, do not protect anyone from anything. Additionally we should arm the teachers with condoms, well; maybe not condoms but at least a law book. The next criminal that comes into a school with a gun and points it at one of our children, the teachers could be armed with a law book and shake it in the face of the perpetrator and say in a polite and soft but firm voice “this is against the law”, possibly even pointing out the specific law that he or she is violating, this should provide our children with at least some protection. If that doesn’t work the teacher could suggest a group hug and chant something from the Quran.
In light of the most resent shooting of all those kids at the Amish school in Pennsylvania now called the Amish school massacre, and following shortly on the heels, the shooting of a principle of another school; the proof that our legislators do not agree with arming our teachers with law books or something, is that they passed some more anti gun laws so this will never happen again. Some how this sounds vaguely familiar to me, oh yes they did that after the Columbine school shootings maybe three more laws wasn’t enough, moreover, maybe shaking a law book in the face of a would-be murderer while facing east toward Mecca all while hugging a weed isn’t enough either.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Since we have kicked God out of our schools so that our children no longer have His protection, could it be that we need something a little more convincing than a law, or a law book and a hug and a chant to arm our teachers with? Now let’s see, what would equalize our teachers with some jerk that comes into a school with a gun and points it at a student? Mmmmmmmm… I give up… Nooo! Not a gun! We couldn’t! Teachers trained to protect children? With a gun? Someone might be killed; maybe the bad guy, maybe even before he kills any of our children. What a novel idea! One should think about that…
