This must be shared

I would try and paraphrase or add my own commentary but that would be a major disservice to this Marines perspective. Read all of this and then think about what you hear in the main stream institutionalized media outlets like the NY Times and CBS.

Also, this from Fallujah.

In Fallujah, Iraqi forces uncovered a lab in the southwestern district of the city, where pockets of insurgents are still holding out following the assault.
"We also found in the laboratory manuals and instructions spelling out procedures for making explosives," Dawoud said. "They also spoke about making anthrax."
Dawoud showed pictures of a shelf containing what he said were various chemicals.
Earlier, the U.S. military said it had uncovered the largest arms cache yet inside the mosque of an insurgent leader in Fallujah. Troops found small arms, artillery shells, heavy machine guns, and anti-tank mines Wednesday inside the Saad Abi Bin Waqas Mosque in central Fallujah where Sunni rebel leader and imam Abdullah al-Janabi often spoke, the U.S. military said in a statement.
U.S. Marine officers say they so far have found enough weapons in Fallujah to refuel a nationwide rebellion.

It's time to break the back of the resistance and not let up. They want to kill Americans...let em take on the Marines.

Have a very happy Thanksgiving...

and don't forget to thank God for everything, the good and the bad. It may be over used but there is truth behind the words: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. If you live in the US or Canada or any other civilized country life is truly not that bad. Pray for those brave hero's fighting for us, whether you agree with their mission or not. Pray for those in Darfur and wherever else there is pain and suffering. Love your family and don't take yourself too seriously.

Thank God

Thank God for men like Matt Heidt. He's a retired SEAL corpsman and he puts this whole mess surrounding this young Marine into perspective. If you are here from BlogExplosion do yourself a favor and read Matt's insight into what's really going on within our military. He's the real deal.

Thank you Matt. You really are an American hero...

A lot to catch up on...

It's been a while since I've had time to sit down and write about current events so I'll try and catch up.

First things first, Ohhh Rah! The Marines have Fallujah!!! with far fewer casualties than I thought they would. This is a testament to just how good our young fighting men are at doing what has to be done. That being said, no doubt most have heard or read about the young Marine supposedly shooting a wounded terrorist inside a mosque. The Marines are doing what should be done...they are conducting an investigation to get the WHOLE story...something the media needs to get back to. How many of you knew that the day before this video was shot that a Marine in his unit was killed when he was attending to the body of another dead terrorist because the body was booby trapped? Also, how many knew that this young Marine was shot in the face the day before as well and wanted to get back to his Marine brothers more than anything else. That's commitment and dedication at it's finest. It's really too bad that our soldiers and Marines have to fight 2 enemies really, both the terrorist and the media. With this kind of media coverage we never would have won WWII.

I've heard a lot of people, media and pundits, claiming Geneva Convention violation on this. It would be if the wounded man was a soldier wearing a country's uniform and serving under a sovereign country's flag. As it stands this man was trying to kill American combat troops under no banner but religious fanaticism and is accorded no such rights.

Next, hooray for Condi!! She will be absolutely wonderful as Sec. of State. As usual the left, who claim to be all about diversity and should be lauding this as an advancement for black Americans, are all about beating her down because she happens to be of a different opinion. Typical. Cast your eyes on this, this, this, and read this. It's enough to make you sick.

This administration is the most diverse in history and people want to call Republicans racist...what hypocrites!

Then there's this...from the amazing radio host Glenn Beck. Remember all of those Hollywood idiots saying they'd leave the country if Bush were re-elected? Well, Glenn's trying to make that happen for one "lucky" celeb...go here and help do your part.

In even scarier news, the Ruskies are in the game again. At least they're not Iran.

Maybe I'll post more later...gotta go!

What I've noticed...

I've been surfing Blog Explosion a lot recently and I've noticed that most of the liberal bloggers out there don't get it. I don't know how many blogs I've read that the writer just doesn't understand or even want to understand why it is Bush and the Conservative movement won so soundly. All they seem to want to do is cry in their beer. We've all heard the liberal pundits claiming that the "moral values" most Americans that voted for Bush were expressing was their opposition to gay marriage. If they want to keep deceiving themselves that's fine, however, that's not why the Democrat Party was shunned at the polls.

I understand that most Americans share the same values and want what's best for this country and for their families and those two go hand in hand, they have to. Red state, blue state, what does that really mean anyway....we're all Americans and those of us who voted for the President can't understand why some in the Michael Moore crowd can claim to love this country when all they do is spew lies and hatred with the intention of further dividing this nation.

Those of us who voted for the President understand the war on terror. We understand that Iraq is but a battle in the war on terror. Iraq is not "taking our off the ball" as some argue. Why would Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and his terrorist organization be doing all it could to resist Iraq's independence? I thought liberals were supposed to be for human rights... so why on Earth have they vehemently protested the liberation of over 50 million people?! The people who have benefited most from the liberation of their respective countries is women, are we supposed to believe that women would be better off under their former regimes? Contrary to popular leftist belief WMD's were a reason for our invasion of Iraq but they weren't the only reason. If you read his 2002 Address to the UN , you will understand that fundamental human rights were also, a reason. The analogy of WWII comes to mind. Would today's liberals be in favor of spilling the blood of thousands upon thousands of human beings to put an end to Hitler's Final Solution? After all, Germany was no direct threat to the United States at the time and they didn't attack us, the Japanese did.

The real reason this country has become so divided is because there is a Republican in the White House and the Main Stream Media (MSM) likes nothing better than stirring things up because it sells papers and gets ratings. I don't believe we're red or blue. We're Americans! All we want is to live in peace and raise our families. Just like the people of Iraq and Afghanistan do. Thanks to us and our allies they can begin living life as they choose. It's going to take time, I think people are expecting way too much way too soon....after all America has had well over 200 years to perfect a free Republican form of government and some would argue we still have improvements to make.

This short post ended up being a lot longer than I had intended but I needed to get some of that off of my chest. I guess what I really want is for our country to be united again. We're really not so different, liberals and's time to bury the hatchet and get on with the business of winning this war and putting this whole thing behind us.

There's a lot going on....

Wow, there's a lot going on out there in that big ol' world tonight.

First up, we have the Fallujah offensive well under way. This is a very good thing, just pray for the Marines and Soldiers doing this very dirty work. This town needs a good cleansing once and for all. There have been and there will be Coalition casualties, but there is no way around that and they understand that....probably more than the rest of us. Thank God there are those out there willing to do what they do.

Second, Arlen Specter. There is a battle brewing in conservative circles on whether or not to let Senator Specter have the Judiciary Committee chairmanship. For those of you who do not know Specter is what some would call a RINO or Republican In Name Only. He's a pro-choice lefty by most respects but still a Republican. He's also slated to Chair the Judiciary committee, which is likely to be one the most important committees in recent history when it comes to Bush's Judicial nominees, especially his Supreme Court nominations. There are like to be 3 or 4 retirements from the High Court in the next 4 years so the leadership on this committee is crucial. There are those that believe because Specter is pro-choice he should be "thrown under the bus" as Hugh Hewitt would say thus paving the way for a more conservative chair. I, and others, are of the opinion that Specter should be given the chairmanship and then watched very carefully. We must prove that there is room in the Republican Party for all different views and we don't just remove somebody because we "think" they're going to behave in a certain manner, that's what liberals do. We must wait and if/when Specter begins obstructing Bush's nominations then the appropriate actions must be taken. I say he's earned his position whether you agree with his beliefs or not.

On with it...

The election is over and thankfully the good guys won and won convincingly. Now it's time to get on with it. There is a battle royale mounting for the Iraq city of Fallujah. The Marines and Soldiers who have been surrounding the city since they were ordered back in April are itching to go in and clean house. Hopefully, they will be allowed to do what needs to be done. Please, I urge you to read more at The Green Side. Now the President doesn't need to worry so much about the political ramifications and can carry on and deal with these bastards how they need to be dealt with....flushed out of their holes and shot.

This is it...

Tomorrow, by this time or a little later, I predict we will know who has won the Presidential election. I still believe that it's not going to be close, at least not as close as the "experts" predict. I still am going with Bush winning 41 states. I don't think people like the idea of seeing John Kerry in their living rooms for the next 4 years. Heck, the fact that Osama all but had a Kerry/Edwards sticker plastered to his turban should be enough for any red blooded American to vote Bush. The Kerry people just get boiling mad when you bring up any mention of them being preferred by terrorists and those that sponsor them but facts are facts. This has been a long drawn out election. Things have gotten nasty, mostly by the left. It never ceases to amaze me, Kerry and his surrogates can get away with calling the President a liar, a murderer, an idiot, etc... but if Bush fights back by pointing to Kerry's 20 year abysmal Senate voting record it's called an attack? That just doesn't add up. I've said it before, for so many reasons, John Kerry doesn't deserve to be a Senator let alone the next Commander in Chief. Let's bottom line this. Everyone these days says we should support the troops, of course we should, they are the one's fighting and dying in this war on terror. According to a poll by the Army times, the troops prefer Bush over Kerry 73% to 18%. Our military, those in a position to know how things are really going in this war on terror, want Bush by an almost 4 to 1 margin. That's amazing! So tomorrow as you go to the polls remember what's really at stake...the future of how we address this war on terror. We can either stay the course and keep fighting back, staying on the offensive...or we can withdraw, fighting a defensive war... I don't know about you but I choose to stay on the offensive, never taking our foot off the necks of these bastards....and it appears out troops do too.
