“a hands off, leading from behind approach”

Posted in HOOAH!, politcs, rankers, War On Terror with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 14, June 2014 by chockblock

The U.S. has made the case as strongly as they can to regional countries, including Kuwait. But ultimately when you take a hands off, leading from behind approach to things, people don’t take you seriously and they take matters into their own hands.
America’s Allies Are Funding ISIS, Josh Rogin, The Daily Beast.com

“The elephant in the room, unmentioned by Obama, is what happens if Iraq’s leaders — or the rebels — turn out to be uninterested in compromise. In particular, the president never said anything approaching this: “We will under no circumstances permit the terrorists to take control of Iraq.”

Barack Obama is a man who knows how to use words. It’s possible, then, that this omission was intended to prepare us for the worst.”
What Obama Didn’t Say About Iraq, Stephen L. Carter, Bloombergview.com

America didn’t lose Iraq, it was given away by a party and an Administration bound and determined to “get out of Bush’s War.” The left cares not for foreign affairs, it distracts from the domestic agenda of taxing and spending*. When they do show interest, it’s to kiss the ass of oil sucking dictators or to kow-tow to any foreign tyrant. Or simply parrot the current thinking of Europe’s intellectual class.

Iraq could have used American troops. ISIS is an Al-Qaeda spin-off. A failed Iraq spells trouble for the US. Sadly, we American’s don’t care about foreign wars, but foreign wars do care about us.

The left likes to say that they ended Vietnam and now Iraq. That somehow the Democrats brought us troops home. Lies. George Bush signed the agreement to withdraw from Iraq when their coalition government didn’t want a Status Of Forces Agreement.

But if you see Tumblr, Reddit or other hives of lefty scum and villainy, the Democrats are treated like royalty for “bringing the troops home” (not really, we’re still gonna be in Afghanistan until 2017). Don’t forget the drone strikes. Clinton has his cruise missiles, this Whitehouse has kill lists and drones. Hands off and leading from behind.

So as the media has sown, so shall the American public be forced to reap the bitter harvest.

*: I’m not kidding about that. See TheOtherMcCain for our “reality based community’s” take on Iraq:

Yes, the most urgent business facing the United States Senate is a newspaper columnist’s thoughts about sex on college campuses.

About that Todd Akin fella…

Posted in politcs, rankers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 21, August 2012 by chockblock

So it seems that some GOP backbencher opened his mouth and the stupid thus flowed fourth:

““Legitimate rape” became a Twitter trending topic in the U.S. this afternoon after liberal blog Talking Points Memo posted a video of Rep. Todd Akin claiming that victims of “legitimate rape” are unlikely to become pregnant.” Twitchy

A washed up actor wanted Sarah Palin “gang raped.” Wayne Brady had to apologize for mocking Sarah Palin’s child. And a democrat was caught trying to have sex with a 17 year old boy.

And the media was silent.

The media is in the tank for the left. Anything to put democrats in office and keep them there.
$500 million was lost to Solyndra’s bankruptcy and all the taxpayers got was some crappy artwork.

I’ve held that the left will go insane, I think they already have. Of course the GOP establishment likes to front candidates who are brainless. It’s to be expected from stuffy old money “conservatives” more interested in mooching off the taxpayer. That’s why the 2008 McCain campaign sucked donkey balls, they ran a 1960’s era Republican campaign and forgot about the Tea Party. Akin is an oxygen sucker, someone the party should kick to the curb.

The left? A bunch of vile commie punks who will wreck the economy much like they did Hollywood.

Useful Idiots: Bias part II

Posted in politcs, rankers, War On Terror with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 14, August 2010 by chockblock

“In political jargon, the term useful idiot was used to describe Soviet sympathizers in Western countries and the attitude of the Soviet government towards them. The implication was that though the person in question naïvely thought themselves an ally of the Soviets or other Communists, they were actually held in contempt by them, and were being cynically used.”
— Wikipedia.

Today we have dimmi’s. Those who try and convince us that if we’d only believe, the muslim world would like us. If we’d stop bombing them (for terrorist attacks, 9/11, violent oppression of women, etc.), the Arab would would like us. “Unclench the fist” so to speak.

Sorry, fists are still clenched.

Russia (under Putin) is thumbing it’s nose at our peace efforts. Anti-American Muslims want a mega-mosque next to Ground Zero (with the backing of our leadership)..

BBC Radio has a good podcast on useful idiots.

Yes, on the right there has been support of violent oppressive regimes. But (and this is a Kim Kardashian-sized but) violent anti-western regiems are working together. Most “rightist” regimes were islands of despotism. In South America, Hugo Chavez is trying to work with China, Russian and Iran against the US. Iran is trying to undermine the US in the middle east and supports terror attacks against the US. The Taliban and the Al-Qaeda sponsored terror in Iraq were whitewashed by the left since OIF and OEF.

The left is in love with anything anti-American. Even as they work to undermine the freedoms they enjoy.

Sadly, useful idiots are still with us.

Bias

Posted in politcs, rankers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 23, July 2010 by chockblock

When my father was alive, he used to dismiss any charges of pres bias. He believed that the free press was operating in the public interest. Even when I was in my twenties, he asserted that he knew that I was wrong and that the press was a force for public good.

I came of age as the Internets became a force for news and politics. The press ossified into a left wing echo chamber. They tired to hide Bill Clinton and the damage his administration did to our country. They actually picked George W. Bush as their favorite Republican candidate in 1999-2000.

And now?

  1. Time Correspondent Who Criticized FNC President Could Block It From WH Press Seat(Newsbusters)
  2. Obama Campaign Advisor Participated On JournoList.(Volokh, h/t: Insty)
  3. Obamagasms on V-O Day at JournoList( Michelle Malkin)
  4. Journolistas Even Clam Up In Unison(legal insurrection)
  5. JournoList as a Management Problem(The Enterprise Blog)

How the might have fallen. Not since the days of Walter Duranty shilling for Stalin has American seen the fourth estate sooo far up a politician’s ass. They cheered when they thought ‘one of our own’ was going to get elected. They shill for the party in power. They want to see the US fail in Iraq and Afghanistan. They want to cover up thing that make the administration look bad. Truth to power of course.

Now we have blogs (and before that talk radio). The internet has leveled the playing field. Of course there are those who wish to silence the blogs. When George Bush was in office, the left used blogs and street protests (with talk of killing a siting president and much violence in the streets) to try and remove him from office.

The Tea Party movement is a grassroots bottom up movement. The protests are peaceful. The blogs talk about the harm current policies are inflicting, not killing any politician of any party. And the Left hates it.

Bias pure and simple. They are the ruling class now, see? We’re just scum, the proles who need to do what we are told. God forbid anyone complains about taxes or opposes wealth ‘redistribution’. That’s raaaacist. The main stream media told me so.

My father would have wept at how the media he came to rely upon transformed into an organ of the Democratic party and it’s radical fringe. It spits on people like him, hard working Americans who pay their taxes and wish to keep what they earn.

Sorry Dad, the media abandoned us.

I don’t watch TV news anymore. I’m returning the favor.

How far we’ve come since WWII: yes there is a war on.

Posted in guns, HOOAH!, politcs, rankers, Uncategorized, War On Terror with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 21, December 2009 by chockblock

(CNN) — Another wartime Christmas week has arrived.

Yet on the streets of the United States, it often feels as if this is a nation that has half-forgotten that its sons and daughters are in combat.

Not literally, of course; Americans are intellectually aware that the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq continue. And for the families of the young soldiers, sailors, Marines and aviators in combat zones, the wars never go away, even for a single tick of the clock.

But the lack of shared sacrifice during these war years — the sense that those of us at home go on with our lives pretty much as usual while the men and women who have volunteered to be in uniform risk their own lives anew with each rising of the sun — is a notion that is especially acute during the holiday season.

How have our lives changed during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? What has residing in an America at war done to the texture of daily life?

Where’s the shared sacrifice of war?
by Bob Greene.

Mr. Greene, we have endured countless protests by the left, crying crocodile tears over the causalities of the war and the “suffering” of US troops and their families.

Greene goes on and on about war time rationing and restrictions. Newspapers would run stories on it, ration cupons were a part of everyday life. Nylon, silk, rubber, metal, things we take for granted toady were drafted into an effort to beat the Axis was machine. They became scarce during the war, shortages were common. Something never seen in the postwar years.

There was more to the war than rationing. The technology of the day still required massive man power. Ships took hundres of men to keep them running. Mechanics, welders, truck drivers, carpenters, plumbers were all drafted to make the army run. It was a rule of thumb that for every soldier or marine with a ruck sack and a rifle, seven other service members made his job possible.

Now one of the left’s favorite boogymen is the “permanent war economy”, that means US industry is geared for war. This came about due to President Dwight Eisenhower ‘s farewell address. The “military-industrial complex” was his warning about President-elect Kennedy and his rhetoric. He fears the JFk would run the US headlong into war with the USSR.

See the US had to build up it’s military to face the USSR. Their used to be several Army divisions, Air Force Wings, Navy ships and overseas bases the US had to fight the cold war if it got hot.

Between the wars, the US downsized it’s forces, reverting back to the model of the last century. A small professional force augmented by the state militias (the national guard). After the war, most thinkers figured that we’d be fighting the massive red hoards. So we did not cut back as massively as we did after WWI. We did another round of cut backs after the USSR fell apart in the 90’s.

Elvis Presley served in the US Army’s 3rd Armored Division. That unit fought in Desert Storm then was deactivated. Just one example of the post Cold war draw down.

Technology improved. Of all the causalities in Europe, 1/4 of those belonged to the US Army Air Force’s 8th Air Force. To bomb a factory took waves and waves of bombers. Flash forward to the Vietnam war era. To destory the Bridge at the Dragon’s Jaw took a flight (5-6 aircraft) a fe laser guided bombs. We lost lots of pilots in Vietnam, don’t get we wrong. But the “War of a Million Sorties” was nowhere near as costly as WWII, the firepower was greater.

And so we come to the War on Terror. The US military is growing, WITHOUT a draft. We need men and women with technical skills, not bodies. The “permanent war economy” actually produces the internet and other peace dividends. It makes it possbile for Greene to enjoy this holiday season with out worrying about the war.

Yes, to those of you who have been there, those of you down range and those with loved ones over there, it seems strange. Like a dream. That we can enjoy “normal” with a war on.

But that’s the point.

While the left bitches about the “new normal”, moaning about security measures and drone strikes, we are safe.
Rough men and women are doing violence on our behalf with more firepower than any WWII general could have dreamed of. A Private in the Army today knows more than a sergeant did in WWII. His platoon has access to more firepower than an entire battalion of WWII soldiers.

Times have changed, for the better. That’s the real lesson of WWII, Mr. Greene. Thanks to the hard work of the WWII, cold war generations and this generation of service members, leaders, scientists and engineers, we can be free.

Your Welcome Mr. Greene

Bringing the 9/11 plotters to the US: Galacticly Stupid

Posted in politcs, rankers, Uncategorized, War On Terror with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 14, November 2009 by chockblock

Ah, justice. A matter for the courts right? Well if you jaywalk, crash your car while drunk or murder your lover yes.
But if you are the mastermind of a plot to kill 3,000+ innocent people in another country thousands of miles away and you are a danger to that country still, the courts may be in over their heads.

Tell that to the left and their drool supporters in the press. (h/t: Michelle Malkin)

Self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other Guantanamo Bay detainees will be sent to New York to face trial in a civilian federal court, an Obama administration official said Friday.

The official said Attorney General Eric Holder plans to announce the decision later in the morning.

The official is not authorized to discuss the decision before the announcement, so spoke on condition of anonymity.

Terrorists hate our laws. They hide behind them to exploit the loopholes and clueless lefties that support them. Terrorism is NOT and never has been a criminal matter. It’s survival of the country, of the people. They want to kill as many Americans as possible.

If KSM is found innocent in the trial, does he go free? Why him? Others are getting military tribunals?

If the wacky anti-GITMO lefties are still not satisfied what then?

Are some in the administration playing politics with national security?
(h/t: Ace o’ Spades)

The continuing investigations of Bush-era counterterrorism policies (i.e., the policies that kept us safe from more domestic terror attacks), coupled with the Holder Justice Department’s obsession to disclose classified national-defense information from that period, enable Holder to give the hard Left the “reckoning” that he and Obama promised during the 2008 campaign. It would be too politically explosive for Obama/Holder to do the dirty work of charging Bush administration officials; but as new revelations from investigations and declassifications are churned out, Leftist lawyers use them to urge European and international tribunals to bring “torture” and “war crimes” indictments. Thus, administration cooperation gives Obama’s base the reckoning it demands but Obama gets to deny responsibility for any actual prosecutions.
….
Moreover, KSM has no defense. He was under American indictment for terrorism for years before there ever was a 9/11, and he can’t help himself but brag about the atrocities he and his fellow barbarians have carried out.

So: We are now going to have a trial that never had to happen for defendants who have no defense. And when defendants have no defense for their own actions, there is only one thing for their lawyers to do: put the government on trial in hopes of getting the jury (and the media) spun up over government errors, abuses and incompetence. That is what is going to happen in the trial of KSM et al. It will be a soapbox for al-Qaeda’s case against America. Since that will be their “defense,” the defendants will demand every bit of information they can get about interrogations, renditions, secret prisons, undercover operations targeting Muslims and mosques, etc.,

That’s the real danger. National secrets exposed to defendants who want to destroy America, an international left that wants to drag the US government into pointless court cases. Both want to “prove” that any US actions in defense of the country and American citizens are “war crimes.” The results may come back to bite us.

What most people don’t get is that the Geneva Conventions do not cover “enemy combatants” that:

  • hide in the civilian population
  • do not wear uniforms or carry ID cards
  • “Where in occupied territory an individual protected person is detained as a spy or saboteur, or as a person under definite suspicion of activity hostile to the security of the Occupying Power, such person shall, in those cases where absolute military security so requires, be regarded as having forfeited rights of communication under the present Convention.” Article 5 of the Geneva Conventions</li>

We should have executed these clowns when we had the chance.

Rock Beats Laser? Drones, smart bombs and such.

Via Wired comes another essay in the endless argument against our high tech force.

Taking the Measure of a Slam-Dunk Weapons System

Robot war. It just couldn’t be cooler, could it? Especially if the only blood you spill is the other guy’s, since our “pilots” are flying those planes from thousands of miles away. Soon, it seems, the world will be a drone fest. In his first nine months, President Obama has authorized more drone attacks in the Pakistani tribal borderlands than the Bush administration did in its last three years in office and is now considering upping their use in areas of rural Afghanistan where U.S. troops will be scarce.

In Washington, drones are even considered the “de-escalatory” option for the Afghan War by some critics, while CIA Director Leon Panetta, whose agency runs our drone war in Pakistan, has hailed them as “the only game in town in terms of confronting or trying to disrupt the al-Qaeda leadership.” Among the few people who don’t adore them here are hard-core war-fighters who don’t want an armada of robot planes standing in the way of sending in oodles more troops. The vice president, however, is a drone-atic. He loves ‘em to death and reportedly wants to up their missions, especially in Pakistan, rather than go the oodles route.

Drone Race to a Known Future
Why Military Dreams Fail — and Why It Doesn’t Matter

By Tom Engelhardt

Mr. Engelhardt starts here then goes on to try and breathe life into some dead cliches.

The Wonder Weapons Succeed — at Home

So why am I not excited — other than the fact that the drones are also killing civilians in disputed but significant numbers in the Pakistani tribal borderlands, creating enemies and animosity wherever they strike, and turning us into a nation of 24/7 assassins beyond the law or accountability of any sort? Thought of another way, the drones put wings on the original Bush-era Guantanamo principle — that Americans have the inalienable right to act as global judge, jury, and executioner, and in doing so are beyond the reach of any court or law.

And here’s another factor that dulls my excitement just a tad — if the history of air warfare has shown one thing, it’s this: it never breaks populations. Rather, it only increases their sense of unity, as in London during the Blitz under Winston Churchill, in Germany under Adolf Hitler, Imperial Japan under Emperor Hirohito, North Korea under Kim Il Sung, North Vietnam under Ho Chi Minh, and of course (though we never put ourselves in such company, being the exceptions to all history), the United States after 9/11 under George W. Bush. Why should the peoples of rural Afghanistan and the Pakistani borderlands be any different?

Really? “round the clock” bombing hurt the Germans so bad their air force stopped flying. Not the morale but the INDUSTRY was destroyed. Towards the end of the war, their aircraft were made of wood and scraps. Same with Japan. It was the atomic bomb that forced them to end the war, their military was reduced to meeting the allies with sharpened bamboo sticks on the beaches of Japan.

The Viet Cong and North Vietnam were aided and abetted by the USSR. Without the flow of arms, technical know how, intelligence and surface to air missiles, North Vietnam would have folded. They LOST the Tet offensive. America lost the will to fight due to losses (fueled by Russian aid). Iraq both times did not have that aid. And got their brains beat out both times.

Of course, you know the results of this sort of magical thinking about wonder weapons (or technologies) and their properties just as well as I do. The atomic bomb ended nothing, but led to an almost half-century-long nuclear superpower standoff/nightmare, to nuclear proliferation, and so to the possibility that, someday, even terrorists might possess such weapons. The electronic battlefield was incapable of staving off defeat in Vietnam. That impermeable anti-missile shield never came even faintly close to making it into our skies. Those “smart bombs” of the Gulf War proved remarkably dumb, while the 50 “decapitation” strikes the Bush administration launched against Saddam Hussein’s regime on the first day of the 2003 invasion of Iraq took out not a single Iraqi leader, but “dozens” of civilians. And the history of the netcentric military in Iraq is well known. Its “success” sent Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld into retirement and ignominy.

Huh, MAD (mutually assured destruction) kept the Cold War cold. Would he have liked WWII to be come WWIII? Nuclear proliferation is the result of humans wanting to kill each other. India did their bomb on their own. North Korea may have had some help, Pakistan did theirs on their own. So did China. The USSR stole nuclear secrets. We killed the Rosenburgs for their crime in aiding the USSR and making the world a more dangerous place.

The GAO, in the report cited, liked to claim bombs carried by airplanes that didn’t fly (bad weather, mechanical problems etc.) as dropped. Donald Rumsfeld left as SecDef because of the insurgency after the war. We won that one not just with the surge, but by air power and our high tech advantage. The Sons Of Iraq would not have succeeded if it were not for US military might backing them up. Contrawise, the insurgets have had help from Iran, Al Queda and other evil doers. Not enough to save them, just enough to break our hearts.

True, Reagan’s impermeable shield was the purest of nuclear fantasies, but the “high frontiersmen” gathered and, taking a sizeable bite of the military budget, went on a decades-long binge of way-out research, space warfare plans and commands, and boondoggles of all sorts, including the staggeringly expensive, still not operational anti-missile system that the Bush and now Obama administrations have struggled to emplace somewhere in Europe. Similarly, ever newer generations of smart bombs and ever brighter missiles have been, and are being, developed ad infinitum.

Really? My career field is in missile defense. We do what you call impossible everyday. Critics keep insiting that the system wont work or that our enemies are too dumb to build missiles that can hit us. Or they argue that terrorists will sneak a bomb past our borders. Now they try to have it every which way but lose. They won’t lest us strengthen our borders, now will they lest us build anti-missile systems. Nor do they believe our intel.

Our weapons work. Not the way politicians want them to, but they do work. Civilian deaths? It’s called war for a reason. Sadly terrorists and other scum surround themselves with innocent people. We don’t attack we’re cowards. We hit them and we are cruel. Well, they want cruel, and they admit that they love death more than we love life.

Mr. Engelhardt goes on to lament the monies spent on drones. Classic hippe arguments that don’t hold water. Every dollar spent on our military brings back civlian returns and makes sure that people are free to read this blog and Mr. Engelhardt’s too. We must fight them. We care about innocent lives and grieve their loss. The enemy does not. Their bloodlust knows no bounds. Well our weapons have a longer reach and bigger punch. Too bad for them.

The last paragraph is a risible mention of the Terminator movies. *facepalms* In the real world American Soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Airmen risk their lives. Drones help save our people, innocent civilians and our allies.

To hell with the enemy.

Drones are tools nothing more.

“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.”

General George S. Patton

“See – we have a problem,” Matthews said. “How do we know when someone like Hasan is going to make his move and do we know he’s an Islamist until he’s made his move? He makes a phone call or whatever, according to Reuters right now. Apparently he tried to contact al Qaeda. Is that the point at which you say, ‘This guy is dangerous?’ That’s not a crime to call up al Qaeda, is it? Is it? I mean, where do you stop the guy?”

YES it is a crime to all a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

We had Naomi Wolf claiming that Sara Palin “falsely linked al Qaeda to 9/11.”, when she wasn’t afraid of a military coup taht never happened.

Reason number #102938 I don’t miss college is people like Wolf and Mathews. They love lefty politics and see the world in Marx colored glasses.

“While the Obamas host a Halloween Party outside the White House for military families, peace activists will also don costumes and call on Obama to oppose the surge in Afghanistan and end the wars… The activists will be dressed as zombie soldiers, ghosts of war victims, a monstrous Obama’s Afghanistein and more.
–Big Government:Obama Ally Code Pink Targets Children of Military Families for Psychological Abuse

Have these people no shame? No decency? At long last, someone needs to ask these idiots “Have you no shame?”. FYI: Code Pink was/is a major donor to the Democratic Party.

20 years ago this week the Berlin Wall came down.

No mention of Ronald Regan, US forces in West Germany or the aid America gave to freedom.

The popular myth is that the wall kind of toppled over by itself, with a little push from people power. That of course ignores not only the prior 44 years of Cold War … interspersed with several hot ones that cost us tens of thousands of American lives … it also ignores the massive military buildup of the 1980s, the encouragement of liberation movements behind the Iron Curtain, the tough engagement with old-school Soviet leaders and, not least, the cordial engagement with a Soviet leader who realized it was time to throw in the towel. An atmosphere was finally created in which people felt like the could challenge the wretched, murdeorus regime with impunity, and they did.


Here’s Ross Douthat at NYT, who was not yet 10 when that happened, not only thinks the wall was shoved over by German flower children…

” Never has liberation come to so many people all at once — to Eastern Europe’s millions, released from decades of bondage; to the world, freed from the shadow of nuclear Armageddon; and to the democratic West, victorious after a century of ideological struggle.
Never has so great a revolution been accomplished so swiftly and so peacefully, by ordinary men and women rather than utopians with guns.”


VEE Day, Jules Crittenden

And now we have Militant Islamic terror[tm], trying to kill us. Many in this country are in deep denial.

Former Navy SEAL Richard Marcinko, in his first book, criticized President Regan for seeing terrorism through the cold war. He felt it was more of chaos vs. order. I think it’s more good vs. evil. Terrorists are not the poor downtrodden masses or innocent people swept up in the war on terror. They are thugs and hatemongers pure and simple.

The Stazi killed many Germans, they funded the Red Brigades to kidnap and kill more. One President dared their soviet master to tare down the wall they hid behind.

Why can’t the left do the same today?
