Top U.S. officer in Iraq: ´We
must neutralize this enemy´

Military Times, by Michelle Tan

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 8/8/2014 12:28:23 PM

The violent advances of Islamic militants in Iraq is not an isolated problem but rather a “growing global challenge” that needs to be dealt with, the top American general in Iraq told Army Times. “We must neutralize this enemy,” said Army Lt. Gen. Mick Bednarek, chief of the Office of Security Cooperation-Iraq in a Wednesday phone interview. “This is not just an Iraqi issue. This is not just a regional issue. This is a common enemy issue that we’ve got to address.” Islamic State fighters have advanced across the northern and western parts of Iraq, seizing control of cities such as Mosul

If you really want peace, you must destroy your enemy until they put their mark on an unconditional surrender. Then you must occupy the land until you are sure the terms of that surrender will not be violated.
One can only conclude that our handlers have not wanted peace, at least for my lifetime.

If you conceptualize ISIS as a "Herd of Walkers" from the TV show "Walking Dead"...then the appropriate strategy is obvious to the casual observer..destroy/kill/neutralize/obliterate

Democrats turn on
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Politico, by Edward Isaac Devore    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 9/18/2014 8:03:07 AM     Post Reply
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in a behind-the-scenes struggle with the White House, congressional Democrats and Washington insiders who have lost confidence in her as both a unifying leader and reliable party spokesperson at a time when they need her most. Long-simmering doubts about her have reached a peak after two recent public flubs: criticizing the White House’s handling of the border crisis and comparing the tea party to wife beaters. The perception of critics is that Wasserman Schultz spends more energy tending to her own political ambitions than helping Democrats win. This includes using meetings with

Barak Barfi, spokesman for the family of beheaded American journalist Steven Sotloff, claimed Wednesday that the Obama administration “bullied and hectored” the Sotloff family as they tried to rescue their son from terrorist captivity. On CBS This Morning, Barfi was asked if the Sotloff family attempted raising ransom money to send to the terrorist network ISIS in exchange for Steven’s safe return to the U.S. “We had meetings with the administration,” Barfi said. “The family sat with the National Security Council officials. And basically he (an official) bullied and hectored them (the family), and they were scared. He had no

Dempsey: Half Of Iraqi Army
Not Ok As Us Partners

PARIS -- About half of Iraq´s army is incapable of partnering effectively with the U.S. to roll back the Islamic State group´s territorial gains in western and northern Iraq, and the other half needs to be partially rebuilt with U.S. training and additional equipment, the top U.S. military officer said Wednesday. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and a former wartime commander of U.S. training programs in Iraq, said a renewed U.S. training effort might revive the issue of gaining legal immunity from Iraqi prosecution for those U.S. troops who are training the Iraqis.

Jewish Group Condemns Biden’s
‘Offensive’ Reference To ‘Shylocks’
Washington Free Beacon, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 9/17/2014 7:45:07 AM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden’s casual use of an expression deemed anti-Semitic by many has drawn sharp condemnation from the Anti-Defamation League. Biden referred to bankers who take advantage of military men and women serving overseas as “Shylocks.” The term comes from Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, in which the villain Shylock is a greedy Jewish moneylender who infamously asks for a “pound of flesh” as payment. “Shylock represents the medieval stereotype about Jews and remains an offensive characterization to this day. The Vice President should have been more careful,” said Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham Foxman. Biden was speaking to the Legal Services Corporation,

Can Obama Keep His Generals in
Check in the War Against ISIS?

In his major address explaining America’s new war against ISIS, President Obama pledged that there would be no U.S. combat troops. On Tuesday, Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he may recommend ground forces in the future. The White House is seeking to gloss over the rift between the president and his top general, but it is clear that just below the waterline Obama is not on the same page as the commanders who will be leading the new fight. U.S. military officials and members of Congress have complained privately for weeks that Obama appears

Obama Orders Boots on the Ground!

We´re at war. We´re putting boots on the ground. We´re not waiting around for the host nation´s government to get its affairs in order, or for a regional coalition to commit first. The president has apparently overcome his reluctance to use the military, his worries about a commitment to intervene without an exit strategy, and his usual reluctance to acknowledge (even implicitly) that his administration was wrong when it assured us that there was nothing much for us to worry about. Of course, the enemy the president has boldly and unhesitatingly sent our troops to fight is the Ebola virus. Aren´t there

The summer lull in illegal border crossings from Mexico is about to give way to a rush of even more immigrants in a frenzy of fear that Washington is about to shut the door, according to several Hispanic leaders. In Honduras, for example, U.S. threats coupled with those from local leaders warning about the dangers of crossing the border have instead reenergized children and adults to run fast to America and pay inflated fees to “coyotes” to get them there. “As I am speaking, hundreds of children are trying to leave Honduras,” said Jose Guadalupe Ruelas, a Honduran leader who advocates

How Obamacare Forces You to Subsidize
Plans That Cover Elective Abortion
Daily Signal, by Sarah Torre    Original Article

Throughout debate and final passage of Obamacare, the president and liberal allies in Congress assured the American people that the expansive healthcare law would not fund elective abortions. “[U]nder our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions,”President Obama declared in 2009. Today, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) confirms that’s just another broken promise. Here are three things you need to know about abortion and Obamacare: 1. Obamacare sends federal taxpayer dollars to health plans that include coverage of elective abortion. The GAO identified 1,036 Obamacare exchange plans across the country that cover elective abortion while remaining eligible for taxpayer subsidies.

French military planes are carrying out their first reconnaissance flights to identify Isil targets in Iraq this morning as foreign ministers from some 20 countries meet in Paris to discuss the shape of a US-led international coalition.

Now a local New Black Panther adviser is threatening violence against Martin Baker.

He has also recently encouraged people to commit violence on Martin Baker in a recent Facebook posting.

When Doves Cry

What is the enduring lesson of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, when the Bush administration overestimated and, in some cases, exaggerated the threat posed by Saddam Hussein? Some say it´s to be skeptical of government officials who are making the case for war. I say the legacy should be skepticism toward government officials, period – all of them. Their hidden agendas can shade the case for peace as well as war, which might explain why there´s no consensus among so-called experts about the threat posed today by ISIS. On a scale of zero to panic, Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for

But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss.
