VP Cheney Rushed To Bomb Shelter In Afghanistan

Cheney takes refuge in bomb shelter after Afghan blast

MUSCAT (Reuters) - Vice President Dick Cheney was whisked into a bomb shelter immediately after a Taliban suicide bomber struck the main American military base he was visiting in Afghanistan on Tuesday.

Up to 14 people were killed, including one U.S. and one South Korean soldier, in the Bagram air base attack which rebels said was aimed at Cheney.

He had been in his room at the base where he had unexpectedly had to stay the night after bad weather forced postponement of his trip to the capital, Kabul, about 60 km (40 miles) away.

"At 10 a.m. I heard a loud boom," Cheney said.

Base authorities sounded a red alert and secret service officials told Cheney there had been a suspected suicide attack.

"They moved me for a relatively brief period of time to one of the bomb shelters nearby," he said. "As the situation settled down and they got a better sense in terms of what was going on, then I went back to my room until it was time to leave."

NATO's death toll in the attack was four, officials said. A Reuters photographer at the scene saw an additional 10 bodies, putting the total at 14.

It's a shock to me when we almost lose one of our leaders, and we almost did today no matter if you like him or not he is OUR Vice President, and then you look over at HuffPo or the other Looney left site's to check out what you know they are already going to say, "Better Luck Next Time" was the theme of the day over there. Dont ask me why I was lurking but I just had to slap myself in the face with the reality that the Democrats are a complete waste of space, oxygen and time. Yeah, Yeah, I already knew that so dont say "Marie You knew what you would see over there", I KNOW! I just have to be slapped with reality once in a while. It just takes a good dose of hate and vitriol to remind me why I am a Republican and will NEVER EVER sink as low as those imbiciles. This proves the War on Terror goes on, and more Countries need to be involved. DEMOCRATS! I cant stand you when you act like this!! I know tonight I am going to be saying a prayer that MY Vice President wasnt killed today!

Democrats Dont Know What The Hell They Are Doing

Democrats target 2002 war resolution

WASHINGTON -- Democratic leaders in the U.S. Senate have drawn up plans for a measure aimed at repealing the 2002 resolution authorizing the war in Iraq.

The leaders said the resolution would be replaced with a measure restricting the U.S. role in Iraq and beginning the withdrawals of ground troops from the country, The Washington Post reported Friday.

The plan was drawn up during a meeting between Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.; Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Joseph Biden Jr., D-Del.; Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich.; and Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass.; Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.; Jack Reed, D-R.I.; and Russell Feingold, D-Wis.

"I've had enough of 'nonbinding,'" said Kerry, who also said the 2002 war resolution is the Democrats' target.

"The authorization that we gave the president back in 2002 is completely, completely outdated, inappropriate to what we're engaged in today," he said.

The measure suggested to replace the resolution would set March 31, 2008, as the goal for pulling out combat troops. After that date, which is the same set by the bipartisan Iraq Study Group, U.S. troops would be limited to assisting Iraqis with training, border security and counter-terrorism.

Joint Resolution Authorizing Military Force In Iraq

Iraq Liberation Act

UN Resolution 1441
Well isnt this dandy? Why play all these games? Either stop funding the war or move on to something else. You Democrats dont have the authority you think you have to "Update" the War Resolution Act. Or you may as well go back and re-do the Iraq Liberation Act signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1998 also. DEMOCRATS GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEADS!! You control the purse strings ONLY!! You are NOT the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States Of America!!! You cannot Micromanage this war, or any other war through Congress!! Just stop it!!

Former ACLU Chapter President Arrested for Child Pornography

Former ACLU Chapter President Arrested for Child Pornography

Feb. 23, 2007— Federal agents arrested Charles Rust-Tierney, the former president of the Virginia chapter of the ACLU, Friday in Arlington for allegedly possessing child pornography.

According to a criminal complaint obtained by ABC News, Rust-Tierney allegedly used his e-mail address and credit card to subscribe to and access a child pornography website.

The complaint states that federal investigations into child pornography websites revealed that "Charles Rust-Tierney has subscribed to multiple child pornography website over a period of years."

As recently as last October, the complaint alleges, "Rust-Tierney purchased access to a group of hardcore commercial child pornography websites."

Complaint Alleges Access to Graphic Material

Rust-Tierney admitted to investigators that he had downloaded videos and images from child pornography websites onto CD-ROMs, according to the complaint.

The videos described in the complaint depict graphic forcible intercourse with prepubescent females. One if the girls is described in court documents as being "seen and heard crying", another is described as being "bound by rope."

The investigation is being conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and the Arlington County Police as part of the Northern Virginia and District of Columbia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Rust-Tierney made an initial appearance in a federal court in Alexandria, VA, Friday. He is being detained pending a preliminary hearing scheduled for Wednesday, February 28.

Youth Coach, Argued Against Restricting Public Internet

Rust Tierney coaches various youth sports teams in and around Arlington, Virginia, according to court documents.

In the past, Rust-Tierney had argued against restricting Internet access in public libraries in Virginia, writing, "Recognizing that individuals will continue to behave responsibly and appropriately while in the library, the default should be maximum, unrestricted access to the valuable resources of the Internet."

Story Here
Oh sure! This guy argues against restricting Internet Access in Public Libraries so other perverts just like he can get on, watch porn, and get off right there in a Public Library! It's only a worthy cause for the ACLU if it's not harming thier interest's. But dont let them catch you with a Cross high in the sky, an American Flag waving proud, or saying Merry Christmas or all hell will break loose! But having access to internet porn in a public library for anyone to see is just fine with the ACLU! Rotten Pervert, glad you got caught, hope you go to jail for life, and hope one of your ACLU perverted buddy lawyers defends your rotten ass! That ought to be a sight.

Tim McVeigh Conspiracy Theory Continues

McVeigh had high-level help

Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols says a high-ranking FBI official "apparently" was directing Timothy McVeigh in the plot to blow up a government building and might have changed the original target of the attack, according to a new affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Utah.

The official and other conspirators are being protected by the federal government "in a cover-up to escape its responsibility for the loss of life in Oklahoma," Nichols claims in a Feb. 9 affidavit.

Documents that supposedly help back up his allegations have been sealed to protect information in them, such as Social Security numbers and dates of birth.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Utah had no comment on the allegations. The FBI and Justice Department in Washington, D.C., also declined comment.

Nichols does not say what motive the government would have to be involved in the bombing.

The affidavit was filed in a lawsuit brought by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue, who believes his brother's death in a federal prison was linked to the Oklahoma City bombing. The suit, which seeks documents from the FBI under the federal Freedom of Information Act, alleges that authorities mistook Kenneth Trentadue for a bombing conspirator and that guards killed him in an interrogation that got out of hand.

Trentadue's death a few months after the April 19, 1995, bombing
was ruled a suicide after several investigations. The government has adamantly denied any wrongdoing in the death.

In his affidavit, Nichols says he wants to bring closure to the survivors and families of the attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, which took 168 lives. He alleges he wrote then-Attorney General John Ashcroft in 2004, offering to help identify all parties who played a role in the bombing but never got a reply.

Nichols is serving a life sentence at the U.S. Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility in Florence, Colo. McVeigh, who carried out the bombing, was executed in 2001.

McVeigh and Nichols were the only defendants indicted in the bombing. However, Nichols alleges others were involved.

McVeigh told him he was recruited for undercover missions while serving in the military, according to Nichols. He says he learned sometime in 1995 that there had been a change in the bombing target and that McVeigh was upset by that.

"There, in what I believe was an accidental slip of the tongue, McVeigh revealed the identity of a high-ranking FBI official who was apparently directing McVeigh in the bomb plot," Nichols says in the affidavit.

Nichols also says that McVeigh threatened him and his family to force him to rob Roger Moore, an Arkansas gun dealer, of weapons and explosives. He later learned the robbery was staged so Moore, who was in on the phony heist, could deny any knowledge of the bombing plot if the stolen items were traced back to him, Nichols claims.

He adds that Moore allegedly told his attorney that he would not be prosecuted in connection with the bombing because he was a "protected witness."

Moore could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

In addition, Nichols says McVeigh must have had help building the bomb. The device he and McVeigh built the day before the bombing did not resemble the one that ultimately was used, Nichols says, and "displayed a level of expertise and sophistication" that neither man had.

Story Here
Why?? Why documents produced or supposedly produced years later are suppose to be believeable? How would Nichols know if the bomb he and McVeigh built the day before the bombing did not resemble the one that was used unless Nichols had seen this bomb before it was detonated? And if the FBI or whoever McVeigh claims to have been "Employed" or "Ordered By" picked the wrong target? PLEASE!!! Why pick a target in Oklahoma City? Texas FBI was more culpable than OKC! I am NO fan of Bill Clinton's but this is even beyond his scope! This conspiracy theory madness is absolute nonsense. I know Bill Clinton's crowning acheivement as President was the attack on Waco, Texas, and Janet Reno can be orgasmic about this all day long, but I feel in NO WAY that Clinton had any knowledge about the attack on OKC in advance. I know damn well Clinton screwed up big time on Usama Bin Laden, but I am NOT falling for the attack on OKC as being Clinton's fault. This is just another example of how far conspiracy theorists will go.

House Takes First Step Toward Surrender In Iraq


Condi Rice pay's Troops In Iraq Unexpected Visit To Reassure Them They Are Supported No Matter What The Idiot's In Congress Have Done-Link At Bottom Of This Post


Senate Fails To Pass Non-Binding Surrender Resolution

Story Here

WASHINGTON - The Democratic-controlled House issued a symbolic rejection of President Bush's decision to deploy more troops to Iraq on Friday, opening an epic confrontation between Congress and commander in chief over an unpopular war that has taken the lives of more than 3,100 U.S. troops.

The vote on the nonbinding measure was 246-182, and within minutes, Democrats said their next move would be to challenge Bush's request for $93 billion in new funds for the Pentagon.

"The stakes in Iraq are too high to recycle proposals that have little prospect for success," said Speaker Nancy Pelosi, leader of Democrats who gained power last fall in elections framed by public opposition to the war.

"The passage of this legislation will signal a change in direction in Iraq that will end the fighting and bring our troops home," she vowed after the vote, in which 17 Republicans joined 229 Democrats in a wartime rebuke to the president.

Citing recent comments by Democrats, Bush's Republican allies said repeatedly the measure would lead to attempts to cut off funds for the troops. Outnumbered, they turned to GOP Rep. Sam Johnson of Texas to close their case - and the former Vietnam prisoner of war stepped to the microphone as lawmakers in both parties rose to applaud his heroism.

"Now it's time to stand up for my friends who did not make it home, and for those who fought and died in Iraq already," he said. "We must not cut funding for our troops. We must stick by them," he added, snapping off a salute as he completed his remarks to yet another ovation.

Moving quickly, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., set a test vote for Saturday on an identical measure, and several presidential contenders in both parties rearranged their weekend campaign schedules to be present.

Republican senators said in advance they would deny Democrats the 60 votes needed to advance the resolution, adding they would insist on equal treatment for a GOP-drafted alternative that opposes any reduction in funds for the troops.

Even so there were signs of Republican restlessness on the issue. Only two members of the GOP rank and file sided with Democrats on an earlier procedural vote; the total figured to be higher this time.

The House vote completed a turnabout from the fall of 2002, when the House bowed, 296-133, to Bush's request to authorize military action against Iraqi ruler Saddam Hussein.

U.S.-led troops made quick work of his regime but soon found themselves targeted in a country where long-suppressed sectarian rivalries flared and outside forces rushed to intervene. Tens of thousands of Iraqis have died in the ensuing war, along with more than 3,100 U.S. troops.

Bush made no comment on the developments in the House, and his spokesman said the president was too busy to watch the proceedings on television.

After a secure videoconference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, Bush said the Iraqis reported providing troops to fight alongside Americans, making sure that no ethnic or religious factions are ignored in the security operations, providing $10 billion toward reconstruction and working on an oil revenue-sharing law.

"That's good news for the Iraqi people. And it should give people here in the United States confidence that his government knows its responsibilities and is following through on those responsibilities," Bush said.

More than 390 of 434 lawmakers spoke during nearly 45 hours of dignified debate that spilled across four days - an unusual amount of time devoted to what Republicans and Democrats alike said was the most significant issue confronting the country.

House Republican Leader John Boehner appeared to choke back tears at one point as he read from a letter that a husband of a former congressional aide wrote home before being killed in Fallujah.

Pelosi led the House in a moment of silence, out of respect, she said, for those who fought, and "particularly those who have lost their lives in the war, and their families."

Supporters of the nonbinding resolution included 229 Democrats and 17 Republicans - fewer GOP defections than Democrats had hoped to get and the White House and its allies had feared. Two Democrats joined 180 Republicans in opposition.

The developments unfolded as a new poll showed more than half those surveyed view the war as a hopeless cause.

A sizable majority, 63 percent, opposes the decision to dispatch more troops, although support for Bush's plan has risen in the past few weeks from 26 percent to 35 percent, according to the AP-Ipsos poll.

The House measure disapproves of Bush's decision to increase troop strength, and pledges that Congress will "support and protect" the troops.

Bush has already said passage of the measure will not deter him from proceeding with the deployment of another 21,500 troops, designed primarily to quell sectarian violence in heavily populated Baghdad.

Already, troops of the Army's 82nd Airborne have arrived in Iraq. Another brigade is in Kuwait, undergoing final training before proceeding to Iraq. Three more brigades are ticketed for the Baghdad area, one each in March, April and May.

In addition, the Pentagon is sending two Marine battalions to Anbar Province in the western part of the country, the heart of the Sunni insurgency.

Bush and his allies in Congress calculated days ago that the House measure would pass, and increasingly have focused their energy on the next steps in the Democrats' attempt to end U.S. participation in the war.

"The President believes that the Congress should provide the full funding and flexibility our Armed Forces need to succeed in their mission to protect our country," said White House press secretary Tony Snow.

But Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., who chairs the committee that will review Bush's request, said, "the president wants a supplemental (spending bill). If he wants it, he's going to have to accept certain things."

Democrats have made clear in recent days they will use Bush's spending request to impose certain standards of readiness, training and rest for the troops.

"That stops the surge (in troops) for all intents and purposes, because ... they cannot sustain the deployment," Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said recently.

Republicans pointed to Murtha's remarks repeatedly during the day as evidence that despite their claims to the contrary, Democrats intend to cut off funds for the troops.

"This is all part of their plan to eliminate funding for our troops that are in harm's way. And we stand here as Republicans ... committed to making sure our troops in harm's way have all the funds and equipment they need to win this war in Iraq," said Boehner of Ohio, the Republican leader.

Congressman Murtha Crafts Bill to Prevent Iraq Troop Deployments

Murtha's Law

WASHINGTON — A powerful Democrat and Iraq war foe said he intends to introduce legislation in the coming weeks that would effectively end President Bush's plans to send 21,500 more troops into Iraq by setting limits on which troops can be sent.

Using an unusual medium — a recorded interview posted on the Internet — Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said his bill would prevent troops from being sent back to Iraq too soon or too poorly equipped. Troops being sent back to Iraq for another tour would have to stay in the United States at least one year before being redeployed. The bill would also end "stop-loss" policies by preventing the president from retaining troops in Iraq after their enlistments expire.

Murtha, who is chairman of the defense subcommittee to the House Appropriations Committee, said he is formulating legislation with teeth because he doesn't think Bush's plan to send more troops to Baghdad and al Anbar province would accomplish the goals of bringing peace to the country or returning troops home sooner.

The Bush administration "won't be able to continue. They won't be able to do the deployment. They won't have the equipment. They don't have the training and they won't be able to do the work," Murtha said in the post on the Democrat-friendly Web site "This vote will limit the options of the president and should stop this surge."

Murtha's proposed legislation drew a heated response from the House's top Republican, Rep. John Boehner of Ohio, who said the bill would "cut off funding for troops in harm's way by making sure the reinforcements they need to complete their mission in Iraq never arrive."

"While American troops are fighting radical Islamic terrorists thousands of miles away, it is unthinkable that the United States Congress would move to discredit their mission, cut off their reinforcements, and deny them the resources they need to succeed and return home safely," Boehner said in a statement.

"The American people will not support a strategy that involves pulling the rug out from under American troops in the combat zone by cutting off their reinforcements and forcing them to face the enemy without our full support," Boehner added.

Murtha said the legislation would not necessarily deprive the administration of money but would redirect it, and it would be crafted to protect the troops, not harm them.

"We need to make sure that everybody understands we're going to support the troops. We're going to give the troops everything they need. We're not going to .. make any of them vulnerable," Murtha said. "But we're going to make darn sure that they have what they need before they go over."

By crafting legislation with those goals in mind, Murtha said, "that stops the surge for all intents and purposes."

The Pennsylvania Democrat added that he is also considering language in the legislation that would close the military prisons at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib, and the bill might include a provision requiring the president to get approval from Congress before taking any military action against Iran.

Murtha said his legislation would be added the defense appropriations bill, and he plans on submitting it in mid-March before the House Appropriations Committee.

Murtha's appearance on the Web site was part of a broader push to gain support of a troop withdrawal from Iraq. He also taped a message to be played before 1,200 planned viewings of the antiwar film "The Ground Truth" on Thursday. The viewings are part of a grassroots effort organized by to lobby Congress for legislation blocking the troop surge.

Story Here
Well for one thing Murtha CANT close down Abu-Ghraib prison, it's under "Iraqi Control" for which NO ONE has any say in it but the Iraqi people! So Murtha is out of his mind there. As for the rest I want to apologise to any Troops reading this post. I am sorry our Congress has come to this. I cant believe it either, and I tried like hell to make sure it didnt happen but it did. I hope the American people feel just as badly as I do about this new congress, but that doesnt help you guys in the field today. This whole thing makes me sick but I support you guys even if our Congress doesnt!

Al-Sadr Flees To Iran While House Debates Troop Surrender And Funding

Al-Sadr Flees To Iran

WASHINGTON -- Anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr fled Iraq for Iran ahead of a security crackdown in Baghdad and the arrival of 21,500 U.S. troops sent by President Bush to quell sectarian violence, a senior U.S. official said Tuesday.

Al-Sadr left his Baghdad stronghold some weeks ago, the official said, and is believed to be in Tehran, where he has family. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss U.S. monitoring activities, said fractures in al-Sadr's political and militia operations may be part of the reason for his departure. The move is not believed to be permanent, the official said.

Word of al-Sadr's departure coincides with an announcement that Iraq will close its borders with Iran and Syria for 72 hours as part of the drive to end the violence that has threatened to divide the capital along sectarian lines.

The U.S. official said it is not clear how firmly the radical Shiite cleric is controlling his organization and the associated Mahdi Army militia from exile.

"The question for us is to what extent his organization is going to participate in the political process," the official said, referring to al-Sadr's on-again, off-again relationship with the fragile democratic government in Baghdad.

Al-Sadr's departure was reported by several television networks Tuesday.

Al-Sadr's militia is widely seen as the main threat to Iraq's unity and high on the list of targets for the Baghdad security operation.

A ragtag but highly motivated militia that fought U.S. forces twice in 2004, the Mahdi Army is blamed for much of the sectarian strife shaking Iraq since a Shiite shrine was bombed by Sunni militants a year ago. U.S. officials have for months pressed Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to move against the militia, but he has so far done little to comply, largely because he does not want to lose al-Sadr's support.

Al-Sadr rose from obscurity in the aftermath of the ouster of Saddam Hussein to lead a movement of young, underprivileged Iraqis united by opposition to U.S. military presence as well as hunger for Shiite domination.

The cleric, who is in his mid-30s, is a master of street politics, and his young lieutenants can rally tens of thousands of protesters at short notice. Once wanted in the 2003 killing of a key cleric, al-Sadr gained much influence when his parliamentary bloc of 30 of 275 deputies was instrumental in al-Maliki's election.

Dismissed by older Shiite politicians as a dangerous upstart, al-Sadr set up the Mahdi Army militia in 2003. It is suspected of being behind the abduction and murder of thousands of Sunnis in what are known as death squad killings.

Two key members of al-Sadr's political and military organization were gunned down last week, the latest of as many as seven key figures in the al-Sadr organization killed or captured in the past two months.

The deaths and captures came after al-Maliki, also a Shiite, dropped his protection for the organization.

Shiite leaders insist that the Shiite militias flourished because the U.S. and its allies could not protect civilians. They say if the Sunni insurgents were crushed, the threat from Shiite hard-liners would go away.

Shiite politicians have long maintained that Sunni militants pose a greater threat to Iraq's stability. Thousands of Shiite civilians have been killed in bombings and suicide attacks carried out by al-Qaida in Iraq and other Sunni groups.

Thousands regularly cross the porous Iraq-Iran border, and Iran has been a popular destination for elite Shiite Iraq exiles. In Saddam's time those exiles included al-Maliki, who like other educated and politically active Shiites feared for his safety in Iraq.

Hillary For President?

Keep this in mind as the 2008 election process continues…

Just a quick refresher course lest we forget what has happened to many "friends"of the Clintons.

1 - James McDougal - Clinton 's convicted Whitewater partner died of an apparent heart attack, while in solitary confinement. He was a key witness in Ken Starr's investigation.

2 - Mary Mahoney - A former White House intern was murdered July 1997 at a Starbucks Coffee Shop in Georgetown. The murder happened just after she was to go public with her story of sexual harassment in the White House.

3 - Vince Foster - Former White House counselor, and colleague of Hillary Clinton at Little Rock 's Rose Law firm. Died of a gunshot wound to the head, ruled a suicide.

4 - Ron Brown - Secretary of Commerce and former DNC Chairman. Reported to have died by impact in a plane crash. A pathologist close to the investigation reported that there was a hole in the top of Brown's skull resembling a gunshot wound. At the time of his death Brown was being investigated, and spoke publicly of his willingness to cut a deal with prosecutors. The rest of the people on the plane also died. A few days later the air Traffic controller committed suicide.

5 - C. Victor Raiser II - Raiser, a major player in the Clinton fund raising organization died in a private plane crash in July 1992

6 - Paul Tulley - Democratic National Committee Political Director found dead in a hotel room in Little Rock, September 1992. Described by Clinton as a "Dear friend and trusted advisor."

7 - Ed Willey - Clinton fund raiser, found dead November 1993 deep in the woods in VA of a gunshot wound to the head. Ruled a suicide. Ed Willey died on the same day his wife Kathleen Willey claimed Bill Clinton groped her in the oval office in the White House. Ed Willey was involved in several Clinton fund raising events.

8 - Jerry Parks - Head of Clinton's gubernatorial security team in Little Rock. Gunned down in his car at a deserted intersection outside Little Rock. Park's son said his father was building a dossier on Clinton. He allegedly threatened to reveal this information. After he died the files were mysteriously removed from his house.

9 - James Bunch - Died from a gunshot suicide. It was reported that he had a "Black Book" of people which contained names of influential people who visited prostitutes in Texas and Arkansas.

10 - James Wilson - Was found dead in May 1993 from an apparent hanging suicide. He was reported to have ties to Whitewater.

Nancy Pelosi's New Ride

There is nothing I can really add to what my friend's out there are already posting on this but I thought these might be some fun examples of what Nancy should be issued by the Department of Defense for her travels.

I like this one, but while her Broom is down for repair's!@#$%$#@!

But then again this may fit better with what Nancy needs, the C-130

Comes complete with Aerial Tanker so she would'nt have to touch down at all for refueling, is capable of carrying her entire family, staff, thier cars, pets, etc..

And if crowd control get's to be a real concern,(Since they dont much care for the Military or thier equipment in San Francisco) she has access to the ever important Howitzer Gunship.

Boycott NBC and General Electric/This Troop Bashing Has Got To Stop

William Arkin over at NBC claims to be a Military Analyst, what he really is, is a piss poor excuse for a human being. What this Moron seems to forget is that the Soldiers and Veterans have fought for his right to spew his hatred for them. Maybe this idiot should be writing for "The Huffington Post" instead of "The Washington Post". Until someone over at General Electric (Owner of NBC) straightens out or fires this Lunatic, I wont even buy a Light Bulb from GE. "Nutball" with Chris Matthews and "Wackjob" with Keith Olberman must be proud!

Express your outrage over (Supposed) NBC News analyst bashing the military

Contact info for General Electric management:

If you would like to contact the management of GE, which owns NBC, regarding the recent negative remarks made about the United States military by (Supposed) NBC News military analyst William Arkin, here's how:

Jeffrey Immelt, Chairman & CEO

General Electric Company
3135 Easton Turnpike
Fairfield, CT 06828-0001

Here is the Moron's Ramblings

I've been mulling over an NBC Nightly News report from Iraq last Friday in which a number of soldiers expressed frustration with opposition to war in the United States.

I'm sure the soldiers were expressing a majority opinion common amongst the ranks - that's why it is news - and I'm also sure no one in the military leadership or the administration put the soldiers up to expressing their views, nor steered NBC reporter Richard Engel to the story.

I'm all for everyone expressing their opinion, even those who wear the uniform of the United States Army. But I also hope that military commanders took the soldiers aside after the story and explained to them why it wasn't for them to disapprove of the American people.

Friday's NBC Nightly News included a story from my colleague and friend Richard Engel, who was embedded with an active duty Army infantry battalion from Fort Lewis, Washington.

Engel relayed how "troops here say they are increasingly frustrated by American criticism of the war. Many take it personally, believing it is also criticism of what they've been fighting for."

First up was 21 year old junior enlisted man Tyler Johnson, whom Engel said was frustrated about war skepticism and thinks that critics "should come over and see what it's like firsthand before criticizing."

"You may support or say we support the troops, but, so you're not supporting what they do, what they're here sweating for, what we bleed for, what we die for. It just don't make sense to me," Johnson said.

Next up was Staff Sergeant Manuel Sahagun, who is on his second tour in Iraq. He complained that "one thing I don't like is when people back home say they support the troops, but they don't support the war. If they're going to support us, support us all the way."

Next was Specialist Peter Manna: "If they don't think we're doing a good job, everything that we've done here is all in vain," he said.

These soldiers should be grateful (Hold on a second, Our Soldiers Should be Grateful?) that the American public, which by all polls overwhelmingly disapproves of the Iraq war and the President's handling of it, do still offer their support to them, and their respect.

Through every Abu Ghraib and Haditha, through every rape and murder, the American public has indulged those in uniform, accepting that the incidents were the product of bad apples or even of some administration or command order.(Indulged? You mean made sure these stories hit the front page of the New York Times?)

Sure, it is the junior enlisted men who go to jail. But even at anti-war protests, (I thought they were now calling them "Peace Protests") the focus is firmly on the White House and the policy. We don't see very many "baby killer" epithets being thrown around these days, no one in uniform is being spit upon. (Tell that to JOSHUA SPARLING, IRAQ WAR VETERAN, spit on at the latest "Peace Protest")

So, we pay the soldiers a decent wage, take care of their families, provide them with housing and medical care and vast social support systems and ship obscene amenities into the war zone for them, we support them in every possible way, and their attitude is that we should in addition roll over and play dead, defer to the military and the generals and let them fight their war, and give up our rights and responsibilities to speak up because they are above society? (Real Nice Asshole)

I can imagine some post-9/11 moment, when the American people say enough already with the wars against terrorism and those in the national security establishment feel these same frustrations. In my little parable, those in leadership positions shake their heads that the people don't get it, that they don't understand that the threat from terrorism, while difficult to defeat, demands commitment and sacrifice and is very real because it is so shadowy, that the very survival of the United States is at stake. Those Hoovers and Nixons will use these kids in uniform as their soldiers. If it weren't about the United States, I'd say the story would end with a military coup where those in the know, and those with fire in their bellies, would save the nation from the people. ( How about YOU go to Iraq Akin, because you are NOT in the know )

But it is the United States, and the recent NBC report is just an ugly reminder of the price we pay for a mercenary - oops sorry, volunteer - force that thinks it is doing the dirty work. ( Mercenary? )

The notion of dirty work is that, like laundry, it is something that has to be done but no one else wants to do it. But Iraq is not dirty work: it is not some necessary endeavor; the people just don't believe that anymore. (Not everyone agrees with or sees things the way you do Moron)

I'll accept that the soldiers, in order to soldier on, have to believe that they are manning the parapet, and that's where their frustrations come in. I'll accept as well that they are young and naïve and are frustrated with their own lack of progress and the never changing situation in Iraq. Cut off from society and constantly told that everyone supports them, no wonder the debate back home confuses them. (Oh I think the Troops are alot more intelligent than you lead people to believe and are deffinately NOT confused, they know what's going on over here with the Liberal Lunatics jackass!! The Troops proved how much they know about what's going on over here with that fantastic sign they made for John Kerry when he said "If you dont keep yourself educated, you get stuck in Iraq". Spare us, the Troops are more intelligent than you will ever be.)

America needs to ponder what it is we really owe those in uniform.(Try your freedom for starters) I don't believe America needs a draft though I imagine we'd be having a different discussion if we had one. (Maybe America needs to ponder the fact that Liberals arent supporting anything but thier own agenda and Nutjobs like you need to be squashed!)

Baghdad Offensive Set To Begin:

BAGHDAD - A U.S.-Iraqi campaign to stabilize Baghdad will begin soon and the offensive against militants will be on a scale never seen during four years of war, American officers said on Sunday.

Briefing a small group of foreign reporters, three American colonels who are senior advisers to the Iraqi army and police in Baghdad said a command center overseeing the crackdown would be activated on Monday.

"The expectation is the plan will be implemented soon thereafter," Colonel Doug Heckman, senior adviser to the 9th Iraqi Army division, said at a U.S. military base in Baghdad.

"It's going to be an operation unlike anything this city has seen. It's a multiple order magnitude of difference, not just a 30 percent, I mean a couple hundred percent," he added, referring to previous offensives that failed to stem bloodshed.

The plan will involve U.S. and Iraqi forces sweeping the capital's neighborhoods for militants and illegal weapons and then holding cleared areas.

All three officers sought to talk up the ability of Iraq's forces to perform better than in previous crackdowns.

The joint offensive is seen as a last-ditch effort to halt all-out civil war between minority Sunni Arabs and politically dominant majority Shi'ites.

President Bush is sending 21,500 reinforcements, most earmarked for the Baghdad offensive.

Critics of Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki say an offensive last summer failed because the Iraqi army committed too few troops and because he was reluctant to confront the Mehdi Army of radical cleric Moqtada al-Sadr.

The firebrand cleric is a key political ally of Maliki.


Asked if the Mehdi Army's stronghold in Sadr City would be cleaned out, Heckman acknowledged the political sensitivity but said all options were open.

"If we feel we need to clear Sadr City to bring stability, we will do that. Are there restrictions that will not allow us to do that? Right now there are not," Heckman said.

Maliki has vowed the crackdown will tackle militants across the sectarian divide. The Pentagon has said the Mehdi Army poses a greater threat to peace in Iraq than Sunni Islamist al-Qaeda.

The Baghdad command center that will begin operations on Monday will be headed by an Iraqi general. However, U.S. troops will not take orders from Iraqi officers.

Colonel Chip Lewis, senior adviser to a national police division in Baghdad, said the Iraqi security forces were more confident than they were before the last offensive. At that time, some Iraqi units did not show up.

Heckman said the offensive would gradually build up.

"The end of the summer is when we should see some concrete results and be able to say is this working or not," Heckman said. That would be around September.

One problem that bedeviled last summer's offensive was the reluctance of Iraqi soldiers in the regionally recruited army to be deployed in the capital, far from their homes and families.

This time soldiers will get pay bonuses to come to Baghdad and will be given a finite tour of duty, so they know their deployment will not be open-ended, the American officers said.

Another difference would be the establishment of what the officers called joint security stations, which will be set up in nine Baghdad districts and where Iraqi and American troops will live and patrol side-by-side.

It is time for ALL Americans to stand behind our Troops AND the Iraqi Army. No matter how you feel about this war, the surge is about to happen and our Troops need the support from ALL of us. Without our Troops arms tied behind thier back's they are going to complete this mission and and clear out this crap for good. Send a prayer for our Troops and hold on to your resolve, our Troops need us more now than ever. So do the Iraqi Troops, they need a prayer too. KEEP YOUR RESOLVE!!!!

Here's One Way To Stick It To The IRS

Dear Senator,

As a native Oklahoman and excellent customer of the Internal Revenue Service, I
am writing to ask for your assistance. I have contacted the Department of
Homeland Security in an effort to determine the process for becoming an
illegal alien and they referred me to you.

My primary reason for wishing to change my status from U.S. Citizen to
illegal alien stem from the bill which was recently passed by the Senate and
for which you voted. If my understanding of this bill's provisions is
accurate, as an illegal alien who has been in the United States for five
years, all I need to do to become a citizen is to pay a $2,000 fine and
income taxes for three of the last five years. I know a good deal when I see
one and I am anxious to get the process started before everyone figures it

Simply put, those of us who have been here legally have had to pay taxes
every year so I'm excited about the prospect of avoiding two years of taxes
in return for paying a $2,000 fine. Is there any way that I can apply to be
illegal retroactively? This would yield an excellent result for me and my
family because we paid heavy taxes in 2004 and 2005.

Additionally, as an illegal alien I could begin using the local emergency
room as my primary health care provider. Once I have stopped paying premiums for medical insurance, my accountant figures I could save almost $10,000 a year.

Another benefit in gaining illegal status would be that my kids would
receive preferential treatment regarding "in-state" tuition rates for many colleges throughout the United States.

Lastly, I understand that illegal status would relieve me of the burden of
renewing my driver's license and making those burdensome car insurance
This is very important to me given that I have children who will be driving my car in the near future.

If you would provide me with an outline of the process to become illegal
(retroactively if possible) and copies of the necessary forms, I would be
most appreciative. Thank you for your assistance.

Your Loyal Constituent,

What Was Ted Turner Thinking?

BOSTON- Authorities charged two men on Thursday with planting battery-powered advertising signs for an animated cartoon that were mistaken for bombs and caused Boston's biggest security scare since the September 11 attacks.

But investigators were also probing the role of U.S. media group Turner Broadcasting, which has apologized for Wednesday's day-long security scare triggered by a "guerrilla" marketing campaign for one of its cartoon shows.

Sean Stevens, 28, and Peter Berdovsky, 27, were charged in state district court with placing a hoax device and disorderly conduct and released on a $2,500 cash bond each.

Prosecutors said the two were paid by a New York marketing company hired by Turner, and Mayor Thomas Menino has said the city may sue the company, a unit of Time Warner Inc..

"We're not unaware of the fact that the defendants are not at the top of the hierarchy (of responsibility) here," Massachusetts Assistant Attorney General John Grossman told the court hearing.

Berdovsky -- a Belarus native with flowing dreadlocks -- and Stevens mocked the process in an appearance with reporters, insisting on talking about hairstyles from the 1970s rather than addressing questions about the incident.

The men's lawyer said Turner Broadcasting would pay their legal fees.

Way to go Ted! What an incredibly Stupid thing to do to hire this whacked out outfit to place suspicious packages all around Boston shutting down the entire city, costing the city millions of dollars and all this over a Cartoon Network publicity stunt. This caused a panic all over Boston, the Police, Homeland Security, the Terrorism Task Force, and other agency's had to waste millions of dollars in manpower when they could have been doing other work. Not to mention having to "Blow Up" some of these Crazy "Lite Bright" looking boxes. And the two idiot's in the picture above were laughing at all this? They think the public reaction to this was way to much? What IMBICILES!!! We are in the middle of a WAR, the Public is contious (Thank God) about suspicious looking packages ANYWHERE in this Country not knowing if they are bombs or any possible act of terrorism, and will and should report them to the police! Turner and his "Outfit" he hired should be charged with everything they can throw at them. Not just a fine! Then again what should we expect from the man who created the Communist News Network?
