Somebody please tell the Democrats!

The troops still support the war. According to this article, even troops that have seen the fiercest combat and been there the longest support the war by 66%. This really ought to say something. The ones who are doing the dirty work, those who know the score support what they're doing. Please, somebody tell Teddy Kennedy and the rest of the liberal Senate Dems to please shut the hell up and stop talking down out efforts in Iraq!

We are a Judeo - Christian Nation!

I am so tired of the endless effort by groups like the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State to take Christ out of Christmas and take Christianity out of America altogether. They are using nothing more that revisionist history to blur America's Founding Fathers' true intentions.

We are a nation founded on the basic structure of the Judeo Christian religion, this is a fact that cannot be ignored. There is not one, NOT ONE! mention of "separation of Church and state" anywhere to be found in our Constitution. Quite the contrary, in the Declaration of Independence it mentions God and Creator. Our judicial system was established using the Ten Commandments as one of it's guideposts. In fact the term "separation of Church and state didn't even exist before 1802 when Jefferson wrote in a personal letter to the Danbury Baptists telling them not to worry that the Federal govt would not involve itself with the business of the Church. To Jefferson, his statement meant the exact opposite of what the American left is trying to shove down out throats today!

The Establishment Clause in the First Amendment is there so the Federal govt could not establish a national denomination of Christianity. Remember when their ancestors fled England they were fleeing religious persecution. They were being required to belong to the Church of England or the Anglican Church of which the King of England had established. They were fleeing religious intolerance! In this country you are free to choose whatever faith you want to follow, even the faith of atheism (yes it is a faith) You are not free, however to deny me my right to express my Christian beliefs however and wherever I so choose.

And before any of you try the Treaty of Tripoli thing on me, I refer you here.

Geez...the liberal media doesn't stop!

This may be a little late but hey, I've been busy.

It seems that Sec. Def. Don Rumsfeld is being scewered in the lib media again! This time they are trying to protray him as some uncaring buffoon. They are actually trying to make people believe he doesn't give a rats a%@ about our troops in country! Well, as usual the MSM has it wrong again. Here are the facts from International Online Defense Magazine.

"In May 2004 the US Senate approved US$618 million funding for the production of 300 M1114s (Up-Armored Humvees) per month from May through October, and 450 per month, from October 2004 till March 2006. $610 million were also allocated for armor kits for existing tactical vehicles. According to Major General John Sattler, Director of Operations for CENTCOM, the US Army initial assessments were that 1,000 up-armored Humvees will be sufficient for patrol, convoy protection and transportation in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, as opposition forces in both countries changed their ambush tactics and IED techniques, the numbers where updated, calling up for 2,500 more M-1114 up-armored Humvees. Currently, production of 2,000 more vehicles are on contract, and expected to be delivered in theater by December 2004, with approximately 4,500 up-armored humvees scheduled to be operational in the theater. In addition, 8,000 up-armored kits are on ordered and being installed to protect windshields and doors for additional vehicles, including trucked and soft skinned Humvees."

This issue was being dealt with sufficiently WELL BEFORE that so-called reporter planted that ambush question to the Sec. Def.

I guess since Ashcroft is gone, Rummy will have to be the lightning rod for the next 4 years. It's sad really...Rummy has done an excellent job with the situation he was thrown into. Why is nobody questioning why we have troop shortages in the first place? It couldn't be that the Clinton Administration slashed our active duty military by over 1/3rd in the 90's could it? Heavens no, this mess is all Bush's fault....the American left is just getting loonier every day. It's funny and sad at the same time, but mostly it's just frustrating as hell.

If you are here from BE I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Especially if you disagree...I'd love to see how you can argue with the facts given in the above article.

This tics me off!!!

While surfing Blog Explosion I came accross a link to this Blog. It is a site devoted to not only the photo's of dead soldiers and Marines and their funerals but also to the absolute grotesque pictures of those injured and killed in battle. Do we really need to see this? Are we supposed to feel sorry for dead terrorists lined up on the side of the road? Does this person really believe most thinking people don't know what war is. War is horror. War is death, destruction, and disease. The only good thing about war is when it liberates the opressed from the opressors, ie... the Jews from the Nazi's, the Afghani's from the Taliban, and the Iraqi's from Saddam and his maniaical sons.

If you read the FAQ's he says he's not anti war but I don't believe him. He states that we "voted for this war. Let's see it." How un-Godly stupid of a statement is that? Again, I harken back to WWII. Congress approved that war too but do you think the American public wanted to see the pictures of the dead, twisted limbs and bodies on Omaha Beach? Did they want to see pictures of the more than 6000 Marines killed in just the first month of the battle for Iwo Jima?? No!!!

There are those that glorify war and try to make it something it's not. Those are the people that need to see what war is...the majority of American's, I believe, understand that war is evil. It doesn't need to be shoved in our face for shock value and that's what the blogger here is really after...shock value.

Using this logic I think we ought to be more forthcoming with pictures of aborted babies. Should we publish pictures of the mutilated, chemically burned, and tortured bodies of dead babies...after all, some American's support the right for a mother to hire someone to exterminate their child let's see it. Personally, I do believe that if more people actually saw pictures of what they were supporting they wouldn't support it as fervently as they do because of the shock factor.

Now some will say that I am being hypocritical, I do support showing pictures of mutilated babies who died at the hands of those who should be protecting them the fiercest but I don't support the exploitation of the dead and dying in battle. The difference here is choice and innocence. Unborn babies are the most innocent beings in the world and deserve protection from those that would do them harm and have no choice in whether or not they live or die. With the exception of the civilian casualties, especially the children (God help them that is a real tragedy) those terrorists are making a choice to confront our soldiers and Marines and they deserve whatever they get. Does anybody feel sorry for them? I believe it shows a lack of respect for our soldiers and Marines to show their dead and dying brothers in arms. Not only does it affect their morale but it affects the American publics morale.

Nobody, supporters of this war and those who don't support it, wants to lose another American life. By showing pictures like this it actually undermines the war effort. If you don't support their mission then you can't support them. That's not a popular statement with the American left but it's the can't support someone if you don't support what they're doing.
