With the dissolving of our southern border, and with ISIS threatening to blow up a major US city, who’s fault is it? Bush’s? The TEA Party’s? Or the designer of the golf course in Martha’s Vineyard? Is Jimmy Carter available to work the Situation Room?
Perhaps a certain Senate Majority leader was premature. SecDef Hagel is certainly inspiring confidence. History tells us in the last 3,000 years we’ve had perhaps 250 years of peace, with millions slaughtered to make way for various and sundry master races, religions, and ego. Maybe SecDef Hagel’s Aide could read him a bedtime story about Hannibal and Scipio some time. Or Bellisarius and Narses. Something besides Ernest P. Worrell.
Updated with new links. The Childrens Crusade of 2014 presents four issues that are being mashed together, by design. With the first issue, there is the tussle between one’s faith, and one’s religion. In Christianity, the prime commandment is to love one’s neighbor as Xt loved his disciples. The children who’ve been brought here are neighbors, and even the criminals among them. The religious aspect is to respect the law and rule by law, rendering unto Obama what is Obama’s. These children were brought to America with evil intent, and the only way to fight that is with good. And a good […]
Actually, I am not surprised. I think Hamas may have found a new, cost-effective way of delivering heavy artillery. No need for a pistol! Welcome to the beginning of the week!
Well we’re acting in Iraq, indirectly it seems.
Why should we act in Iraq? Please read Slater’s post before reading this one. Here is another article on ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant). The discovery of chemical munitions being captured by the Islamist ISIS adds a number of variables to the equation. Next to nukes, chemical munitions are the most desired weapons sought by Islamist terrorists. History tells us that some of those weapons will find their way to Hamas and Hezbollah for use against Israel. In the main Islamists murder their co-religionists with an alarming regularity. These weapons will be used against Assad and his Ba’athist regime. […]
Won’t W be surprised! Since these WMD never existed, according to certain people, where did this all come from. Darth Cheney is truly a Dark Master for pulling this off with his neo-con minions! 17.09 Chemical weapons produced at the Al Muthanna facility, which Isis today seized, are believed to have included mustard gas, Sarin, Tabun, and VX. Here is the CIA’s file on the complex. Stockpiles of chemical munitions are still stored there. The most dangerous ones have been declared to the UN and are sealed in bunkers. Although declared, the bunkers contents have yet to be confirmed. These […]
I grew up in the background of the Iraq War. Many people said then that it was the wrong war. Truly it was the wrong war if we were going in there to take chemical weapons from a dictator. The truth of the matter was that Saddam had nothing to do with Al-Qaeda and it’s attack on us. Some said Bush wanted take out a man that had put a price on his father’s head. Our aims under George W. Bush were quite different. What I think his vision for Iraq was very clear. It was to establish a “City […]
… Or two. Now that’s sure to trigger some good old fashioned scratch-a-Russian-find-a-Tatar state reprisals. (Did anyone catch the name of the district in Volgograd where the bombing took place??) Who’s laying bets that 2014 will be even more lively than its immediate predecessor?
If only Republicans were Iranian mullahs. Or the Taliban. Can we even be sure Putin will permit President Obama the passage of a clean CR just for DoD? Человека судят по его делам, а не по его словам.* *A man is judged by his deeds, not by his words.
