Afghanistan And Iraq
Head To Hell,

War On Terror: Iranian-backed Shiite terrorists aligning with Iraq´s prime minister, and the Taliban´s likely return in Afghanistan, are milestone events. President Obama is engineering a double U.S. defeat. Future historians — if there is enough freedom in the world of the future for the profession to endure — will long debate whether Obama´s foreign policy was childishly naive or spectacularly sinister. At the Democratic convention last year, Obama claimed he "blunted the Taliban´s momentum in Afghanistan." But with the United Nations´ civilian war deaths report revealing this week a 20% increase in women and girls killed or hurt

My stepson was killed in Iraq. The road back has been long and hard but I wanted to believe the sacrifice made by our family was worth it, that it meant something, that he wasn´t a political pawn.

Under Bush, I believed that. Under Obama, his sacrifice meant nothing. He was sold out for political expediency. Ultimately, he died for our country, not it´s leaders. Obama is an embarrassment to our military. My stepson´s sacrifice is recognized by God. That´s all that matters.

I run with a bunch of mercenaries who have done very well in the middle east but no one is pretending that it wasn´t all a terrible mistake in nation building.

We could have done all that needed to be done from 40,000 feet or with a stock rotation of our older ICBM´s.

The State Department had more suction than the Pentagon and we were all made fools of.....once again. How.....liberal.

I am sorry, #1. I am sorry for anyone who sacrificed for this country, our soldiers or our allies. They´ve all been betrayed.

Blame Afghanistan on anyone you wish, starting w/Alexander the Great, but George the Compassionate, arguably the most feckless and incompetent R POTUS in 100 years, owns Iraq; lock, stock and barrel. Unless, of course, one is way past delusional.

Many are under the illusion that Obama has "continued the Bush policies" on the war on terror. At best, he has continued their appearance, for self-serving political reasons. If there´s a single attribute defining today´s Left - Obama being its epicenter - it is an insatiable lust to see America lose wars. Nothing gave the Left orgasms like the US defeat in Vietnam ("peace with honor"), and to think Obama and his idiotic, anti-American followers aren´t lusting for the same in Iraq and Afghanistan, and anywhere else a chance to defeat the Great Satan arises, is to misread them beyond all naivite. Whatever Obama´s short term tactics are, his overall strategy is for the USA to lose. This is the Left´s ultimate line in the sand, and Obama will not cross it.

Iraq, due to it´s resources, history and geography was and is the best hope for a middle east democracy to be born and thrive.

An actual functioning, adult, democratic country in the midst of this hellish region is a direct threat to not only the muzzies but the western left who have so much invested in the present mideast mess. Imagine the horrific [for them...] situation the UN would find itself in if the mideast was moving toward the 20th century?

So it´s highly important for the left to demonize GWB and offer all help to BO and the Dems while they give Iraq and Afghastlistan the same bug-out treatment that they gave to Vietnam. Cronkite would be so proud.

#7. An obvious demurral. Western democracy will become compatible w/Sharia Law, the linchpin of Islam, when pigs fly.

Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

I see your hand, but I want someone else to answer for a change. No takers? Okay, Joseph. You are correct. They are hated by liberals and Democrats. Tell us why? Correct again, Joseph. They are women and minorities who honor God, family, and country. They are self-reliant, extremely successful and do not view themselves as victims. Liberals and Democrats will not tolerate such liberated independent thinking by women and minorities. It threatens the

When British photojournalist Charles Ommanney traveled through six states to photograph American gun owners, he found something he did not expect: they don´t fit the stereotypes. According to PolicyMic.com, Ommanney was sent to photograph American gun owners for the German magazine Stern. In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop." He found entire families--mother, father, daughter, son--who posed with their firearms of choice. Ommanney also found one woman with a pump shotgun for home

Documents: Bill Clinton Feared
Hillarycare Would Cause People
to Lose Insurance
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/19/2014 7:32:59 PM     Post Reply
As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

A new photo of a mysterious flying object over Kansas has been revealed. It appears to be the same aircraft as one that was snapped soaring over Texas last month. The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
