Is WWIII Upon Us?

Some of you are a little apprehensive when it comes to this subject, I however am not, I see what’s going on all over the world and realize that if something does not happen soon, regardless of what we want, a future global war is a very real and serious threat.

Canada, Spain, England, Denmark, France, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey. Somalia and our own country are only a few of the places where the hordes of Islamic savages run free and create problems.

They try and force their religion upon us and when there is any criticism about them our there actions what do they do? They mass protest, violently in most cases.

We all remember the fashion in which Muslims acted when those Danish cartoons came out depicting Mohammed with a bomb on his turbine and so on, but the actions taken by these people where extremely violent and uncalled for and once again proved people right when they labeled Islam, “The religion of Hate”.

"If we don't have guts enough to confront this ideology today, we'll move toward World War III tomorrow," General John Abizaid said at a forum at Harvard University, where he has received a master’s degree.

The General understands that we cannot roll over and appease our enemies the way certain people did with the Nazi’s in the 1920’s and 30’s, it is very unhealthy for this country and only allows our enemies to grow stronger and more bold.

"We must defeat the extremism of Bin-Laden and his associated movement," he said. "It's murderous, it's ruthless, it's very capable, it's linked in a virtual way in the world that should give us great concern," he said.

The commander of US Central Command said Al-Qaeda had unprecedented strength as a network and that "it seeks to develop a weapon of mass destruction against us.”

"Go to their websites to understand what's going on with the ideology and be worried about it," said four star General John Abizaid.

We as a people cannot afford for these people to take our lands over and let them push us again and again, we must fight back at all times and with the greatest amount of firepower that is available to us.

The Muslim world does not think in the short term as our country does, they think about things in the big picture and they remember what we have been able to do against them in the past and they will remember it forever.

"I think the way that we have to confront this is we've got to move progress forward in the Arab-Israeli Theater. We've got to move the peace process forward no matter how hard it is because people have to have a hope for a better future.

"A lot of what is happening in this area is about hopelessness," he said.

Many people believe that a World War III is coming; I on the other hand feel that we are already fighting that war and it has many fronts such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Somalia and soon to be Iran.

We all know how the Islamic world feels about women in their society, they subjugate them, demean them and abuse them, but just think at the contempt the Islamic world would have for our country if Hillary Clinton was elected President.

We need to be fighting these battles over seas because no one wants for any of these battles to take place upon our own ground and our own shores and we cannot be allowed to run from these barbaric savages in dirty bed sheets.

We are the United States of America and we are the strongest country in the world, let’s start acting like it and take out these abominations to humanity.

Obama vs. Clinton rd 2

The media has been unable or unwilling to let go and grasp reality and understand the fact that Barack Obama has not a chance of getting by the biggest piranha and jackal in the Senate, the certifiably insane Hillary Clinton.

I have been absolutely stunned with the amount of attention that the media is paying to Barack Obama, even he stated, "I am suspicious of hype," Obama told reporters. "The fact that my 15 minutes of fame has extended a little longer than 15 minutes is somewhat surprising to me and completely baffling to my wife."

Obama, who is the junior Senator from Illinois, has only been in the Senate for a whopping 2 years and in my opinion has done nothing at all to garner the attention he has received except for the fact that he is black.

Some will take offense to that I’m sure and try and call me a racist, but I fully believe that I am correct because there are far better and more experienced politicians within the Democratic Party.

Hillary has been losing her time in the spotlight with all the attention being paid to Obama and it threatens to out shine her upcoming attempt at a Presidential run which we all know is in the future, no matter what she or her staff says.

Hillary we all know is as liberal as they come and she is one of the only people who are truly and openly hated by all Republicans and even some Democrats who do not feel that she is far enough to the left.

A battle between these two Senators in the primary would be something to see and it would be a good thing for Republicans because the fighting between the two would help air out the all the dirty laundry that is heavily buried.

Once Hillary formally enters her name into the fray, she will trounce upon Obama and destroy him and in the process make everyone believe that it was the “evil” Republicans who perpetrated it.

Either of these presidential candidates would be a complete and utter disaster to this county, its armed forces, our ability to fight terrorism around the world and it would show that this country doesn’t mind running away from our problems.

It is very clear to me that the liberal mass media is only propping up Obama for Hillary to eventually overcome the difficulties that he represents and do not think that he can overcome Hillary.

I do no seriously believe that he is a credible threat and I do believe that he even has a chance to win the Presidency even if he some how manages to win the Democratic nomination, this country will not vote for him.

I’m sure Obama is a much better person than Hillary is, but his politics are the same and at the same time extremely hurtful to this country and our military and neither one of them can be allowed to win.

Our country has withstood the constant attack by the left and if either one of these horrific people won, it would only mean higher taxes and a retreat from a war that can and will be won.

al-Sadr and the Mahdi Army Are Going Down!

In an unprecedented move Two Shiite militia commanders stated Thursday that Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has stopped protecting radical anti- American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr's Mahdi Army under pressure from Washington, while the fighters described themselves as under siege in their Sadr City stronghold.

During much of his nearly eight months in office, al-Maliki, who relies heavily on al-Sadr's political backing, has blocked or ordered an end to many U.S.-led operations against the Mahdi Army.

Even as recently as Oct. 31, al-Maliki, trying to capitalize on what he perceived to be American voter discontent with the war and White House’s reluctance to open a public fight with the Iraqi leader just before the election, won U.S. agreement to lift military blockades on Sadr City.

As may of you know, most of the violence in the country was perpetrated by al- Qaida in Iraq, with horrible car and suicide bombings and random acts of madness and brutality.

When al-Qaida bombers blew up the Golden Dome mosque, an important Shiite shrine in the mainly Sunni city of Samarra on Feb. 22, Shiite militiamen, especially the Mahdi Army fighters based in Sadr City, stormed out of the violent enclave in a drive for revenge that has only grown in ferocity and brutality.

Al-Sadr controls a militia with an estimated 60,000 fighters that has rebelled twice against the American military and is accused of widening the sectarian war with reprisal killings of Sunni Arabs, targeted assassinations and kidnappings.

Al-Maliki has been reluctant to break politically with al-Sadr, whose party controls 30 of the 275 seats in parliament. Support from Iraqi Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi, a moderate Sunni, whose bloc has 44 seats, could allow al-Maliki to stay in power without relying on al-Sadr.

It also seems that a dramatic increase of American troops in and around Baghdad is going to be put in place to battle the Mahdi Army and help the Iraqi government in the transition from ally to al-Sadr to enemy.

It is about time that our forces confront this radical cleric and stem the flow of his influence; he cannot be allowed to inhibit the progress being made in that country by our hard working troops and the Iraqi people who have to live with his sword above their head.

Even the extremely slanted Iraq Study Group stated, "As the Mahdi army has grown in size and influence, some elements have moved beyond Sadr's control," the report concludes.

"The situation is very, very serious. It requires an injection of additional troops to control the situation and to allow the political process to proceed," said McCain, Arizona's influential Republican Senator who is pushing for a Presidential bid.

"We should have arrested Moqtada al-Sadr three years ago," said McCain. "He continues to be a major obstacle to peace, his influence in domestic politics needs to be eliminated dramatically."

In 2005, al-Sadr had fewer than 10,000 fighters, but the new report puts that figure now at as many as 60,000 — or three fighters loyal to al-Sadr for every seven U.S. soldiers in the country.

The latest estimate is believed to include a dedicated core as well as part-time fighters.

Now is the time to take him out and make that country a safer place for all and we cannot allow ourselves to be frightened and cower to the likes of insane individuals such as this man because if we do, we are only asking for more of them same.

What About The Midget?

With the recent events that have taken place around the world including, the death of Saddam, the announcement of President Bush to send more troops to Iraq and the ascension of power by the Democrats have clouded and have pushed to the backburner a real enemy, the midget of North Korea.

Kim Jong-il has gone under the radar in the past few months and has evaded the scrutiny over his nuclear weapons programs because the only power who could do something about it, the United Sates, has been too busy dealing with Democrat BS and we have lost our path.

We cannot forget that this little insane man has detonated nuclear weapons once in direct defiance of the utterly worthless United Nations and has threatened to do so again prompting the beefing up of missisle defense capabilites in Japan and South Korea.

Do not forget that this is a country that teaches its youth that the United States is the greatest evil in the world and that we are the ones who started the bloody Korean War which started with the invasion of South Korea by North Korean forces.

There have been limited sanctions against the North Korean regime and the Chinese have atleast shown some willingness to impose those sanctions, but like with any dealings with the Chinese, you must watch your back and make sure they stick to their word.

Condi Rice has made some fuss about the nuclear program that the Koreans run, but it has not amounted to anything and words will not change the fact they he is openly defying the world.

Hell the midget even skipped giving extra food rations to its people on New Year's Day, except to the elite citizens of Pyongyang, this is just another example of how this little crazy man treats the people of his country.

Over the past 10 or so years some 2 million North Korean civilians have died because of lack of food and medical supplies.

Where are the liberals who always want victims to put out on display? Where are they to help the repressed people of North Korean and give comfort to the victims? They do not because they are they are only about talking, they are not about action.

If we as a country hold the opinion that we should be using our power for good, than we must act to stop the suffering inflicted upon these innocent people at the hands of this midget.

He wants our destruction, he has said as much, we cannot under estimate this enemy and we must take him serious and at his word, if we were not worried, we would not have 55,000 troops stationed in South Korea and another 25,000 in Japan.

He can attack if he wishes, but he will only be asking for the destruction of his backwards country and the loss of life to many of his people and this is something that I’m sure does not bother him.

He is only acting for himself and has no regard for anything other than that, he must be stopped and because no one else is has the balls to act, it must be us

Is Obama a Real Player?

What is it exactly that Barack Hussein Obama has accomplished that has garnered him this much attention from the liberal leaning mass media? He has been in the Senate all of 2 years and for some reason he has the credentials already to run this country?

"I certainly didn't expect to find myself in this position a year ago," said Obama, who also announced on a video posted on his website that he would set up an exploratory committee allowing him to raise campaign funds and gauge support among the US public.

He is expected to try and derail the freight train that is Hillary Clinton and secure the Democratic nomination in part by being a fresh face, with fresh ideas for a very morbid and depressing Democratic Party to rally behind.

"Our leaders in Washington seem incapable of working together in a practical, commonsense way," Obama said in a video posted on his Web site. "Politics has become so bitter and partisan, so gummed up by money and influence, that we can't tackle the big problems that demand solutions. And that's what we have to change first."

This man is nothing new to Washington, there always new faces that show up, but none of them have the staying power because they always seem to fail in the area of ideas, a category in which the Democrats are seriously lacking and one that is a determent to this country as a whole.

Obama went on to state, "The decisions that have been made in Washington these past six years, and the problems that have been ignored, have put our country in a precarious place," Obama said.

When making these types of overtly agitating comments he fails to mention what exactly is going to be done to solve the ills of this country and what stance he will take when it comes to foreign policy.

He was elected in 1996 to the Illinois state Senate, where he earned a reputation as a consensus-building Democrat who was extremely liberal on such social and economic issues as backing gay rights, abortion rights, gun control, universal health care and tax breaks for the poor.

What makes this even worse is his stand and views on the Iraq War, which he views as a failure and is one of many top Democrats that have openly called for a retreat in the war on terror or “redeployment” in Democrat code words.

"Today's announcement is the first step in a long journey to the White House," said US Senator Dick Durbin, the Senate's number two Democrat and one of the most ardent and vocal supporters of an Obama presidential run.

"Barack Obama brings to this race a promise of reconciliation and a feeling of hope that America desperately needs," said Durbin.

How this man plans on getting through Hillary is beyond me, she has yet to formally commit herself into the foray, but the word is that she is only days away from announcing her intentions to run for her party’s nomination.

We cannot entrust the country with people who openly advocate for surrender of our forces in Iraq, they have repeatedly refused to tell the American people what the consequences of leaving Iraq would really be.

They know that it would create chaos in the Middle East and only create more and deadlier attacks in this country, and why? So they can advance their agenda and regain the power that they feel they have been cheated out of.

It’s a very sad state of affairs and I fear one that will only get worse.

Wed Hero

This Weeks Heroes Were Suggested By CavMom

This week I have three people to talk about. Roy Velez and his two
sons, Jose and Andrew. One who was lost in Iraq and another who lost his
life in Afghanistan.

It happens almost daily. A stranger reaches out to comfort Roy
Velez, unintended symbol of unspeakable loss and grief.

Today it's a woman who approaches as he's halfway through breakfast at
Montelongo's Mexican restaurant.

"My brother told me about you and your sons," she says, extending her

He takes her small hand between his - this sturdy man who has buried
two boys who went off to war - and listens gently as her own story of
sorrow spills forth. Her 8-year-old daughter, a traffic accident, her son
at the wheel.

As waiters bustle about with trays of huevos rancheros and barbacoa
plates, Mr. Velez does what he does best: offers up a soft prayer to help
this mother endure her emptiness.

Strangers learn about Mr. Velez from newspapers and TV. They come to
him to share their gratitude or their grief. They come to thank him and
console him, tearfully, for his family's sacrifice.

This is how Mr. Velez chooses to live after losing two sons in two
years, not riven with anger or paralyzed with sadness. But as someone ready
for those who might slip into the darkness of despair.

For his strength for others, compassion and grace - and for serving as
inspiration for anyone who knows his story - Mr. Velez is the 2006
Dallas Morning News Texan of the Year.

Because this story is so long, I've linked
to the article
which you can read in it's entirety.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that
others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am
proud to call them Hero.
We Have Every Right To Dream Heroic
Those Who Say That We're In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just
Don't Know Where To Look

This post is part of the Wednesday Hero Blogroll. If you would like

country, you can find out how by clicking here.

Cut and Run Democrats? You Better Believe It!

Why would any sane and supposedly intelligent person openly advocate in defense of their own enemies? Would this type of extreme dysfunctional behavior be characterized as insane?

If that is the case, than I believe that the majority of Democratic leadership is certifiably insane because they are doing just that.

The Islamic and militant and terrorist leadership we are fighting all over the world has been advocating for the United States to leave and retreat from Iraq at the soonest possible time.

Where else have we heard this kind of talk recently? Oh I remember where we have heard it from the supposedly bi-partisan newly elected Democratic leadership that has shown once again its underlying aggression that they have for this President and this war.

They want us to leave Iraq and are opposed to a measure that might actually bring about change for the positive, which should show every American where the Democrats stand in the Iraq War and the greater war on terror.

They say that they support our troops, but actions speak much louder than words and their actions have been of a negative and malicious manner and the brave men and women in uniform do no deserve it.

They lay their lives on the line every single day for each and every one of us and how do the Democrats repay them? By insulting them just about every chance they get, questioning their intelligence and their competence.

The Army was the institution that allowed for this country to be formed in the first place, and it was the Army that freed the slaves in the Civil War, they are the ones who have laid down their lives for the cause of freedom and the protection of this country.

Any retreat from Iraq would only jeopardize the troops and their morale, it is not their fault that we are in the position that we now face, it’s the politicians who will not untie their hands and let them make war on our enemies.

It was also the politicians that caused our retreat from Vietnam and therefore they are responsible for the thousands of death that was caused by our retreat from an enemy that’s only hope was for us to lose the war in the political battlefield because they were soundly defeated in the field.

It is the same now, our troops are fighting people who can’t even hold their jock and cowards who hide behind women and children and can’t even show their own face and actually fight our troops.

If we leave, than the Islamic savages would only be emboldened and with the vast riches they would control they would be able to fund and provide assistance and sanctuary for all who wish to see the utter destruction of our great country.

I will not let these politicians once again to be able to insult these troops and allow for our vastly weaker enemies to walk all over us as most Democrats and even a few Republicans would wish.

It is a cold hard truth that the percentage of high school graduates in the military is a vastly higher percentage than the country as a whole, I would like to see any of the Democrats be able to accomplish a 1/4th of the things our troopers are asked to do on a regular basis.

There is a better way and that way involves more work and more sacrifice for everyone, but it is something that is definitely worth it and this conflict is just one of the battles that we are now facing in the war on terror, one we cannot walk away from.

Democrats Revealed

Me and every other rightwing bloggers out here told you it would happen, but yet that wasn’t a good enough warning I suppose as the Democrats are doing everything that we all feared they would.

They have already stated that they believe that they have a mandate to exit Iraq without victory and disgrace this country and its armed military forces, not just in this country but to our enemies as well.

Bin Laden himself has said that we do not have the resolve and fortitude to take casualties and still fight it out, any retreat without victory is a victory to Al-Qaida and to the savage terrorists.

We are the most powerful country in the world, but we continue to deny this fact and we certainly do not act in such a manner that would reflect this glaring truth about our country and now certainly its Democratic leadership.

Future Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said, “Well, the oversight will be very important because then the truth would be revealed. But, remember that "stay the course" has with it -- whether the president changed the slogan, he hasn't changed the strategy or the approach.

And "stay the course" also implies staying the course of having a one-party policy in Iraq. Even his own Republicans, in some cases, are deserting him on this.

So I think, in the interest of our national security and protecting the American people and bringing stability to the region and to honoring our commitment to our troops, we need a different approach.

And extending the hand of partnership to the president, not partisanship but partnership, to say, let's work together to come to some common ground where we can solve the problem in Iraq.”

This women considers Iraq only a problem to be solved, not the central part of the war on terror, which it most obviously is, even our enemies state this, but yet it is not enough for our ultra-liberal new Democratic leadership.

There is no place where we are fighting them more and killing more of the enemy than in Iraq, but people such as John Murtha suggests that the problem is that our soldiers are the ones creating the violence by there very presence.

Are soldiers are not responsible for savages blowing up markets, abducting innocent people and the bombing of police recruits. You do not see our troops acting as death squads going around killing any person who does not think as they do.

Carl Levin, a Michigan ultra-liberal Democrat who is the new chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Democrats would seek a bipartisan agreement to persuade Bush to start pulling troops out of Iraq in four to six months.

"We've got to put greater responsibility on the Iraqis and the way to do that -- probably the only way to do that -- is to let the Iraqis know that within four to six months of the president notifying them, that we're going to begin a phased redeployment of our troops out of Iraq," Levin said.

People wonder where I keep coming up with the idea of the Democrats cutting and running, you only have to look as far as the new Democratic leadership to see where I am getting my information.

They have made it abundantly clear that they are willing to leave Iraq without victory and that my friends cannot be disputed by anyone, their actions are the basis of my opinion, if they refrained from acting like cowards I wouldn’t call them cowards.

We must win this conflict, that’s something the Democrats sadly haven’t accepted yet and probably never will which is sad.

Michael Collins, My Irish Hero

We all have those who inspire us and motivate us to do more, work harder, and achieve more, for me one of my greatest heroes is Irish General and revolutionary leader Michael Collins, who was also affectionately known as "The Big Fellow".

There might be those among you who actually know who this man is and know the impact he had on the country of Ireland, its fight against the iron rule of Great Britain, and the subsequent creation of the new Irish Republic.

Born in October 16th 1890 to a relatively well to do family of farmers in the area of Cork County, which just happens to be where my family hails from, which might be part of the reason I so admire him.

At the tender age of 19 he was introduced to the dissent and revolutionary nature of the
Irish Republican Brotherhood, which is a secret oath based society dedicated to the liberation of Ireland from the oppressive rule of Great Britain.

Michael Collins first gained notoriety during the failed 1916 Easter uprising of which he took part of mainly because of he was a highly skilled organizer and collector of information due to his personal intelligence network and also because he was so highly respected throughout the Irish Republican Brotherhood.

On Easter Monday 1916 Michael fought alongside the leaders of the rebellion and took over the
General Post Office, he was later captured when the rebellion failed after a 6 day siege and was saved the fate of those leaders and did not go to the gallows and ultimately landed himself at Frongoch Internment Camp and was later released.

In the summer of 1919 Michael was elected President of the Irish Republican Brotherhood and shortly after in September was made the Director of Intelligence of the
Irish Republican Army.

Using his previous intelligence network he created a special assassination squad called the Twelve Apostles, this unit was specifically created to kill British agents who had been causing trouble for Michael, his followers and of course the cause of Irish independence.

By 1920 The British government offered a bounty of £10,000 for information leading to the death or capture of the 30yr old revolutionary leader Michael Collins.

His popularity was so broad and massive that he transcended the Irish Republican Movement and was given the nickname "The Big Fellow".

In 1921 "The Big Fellow" was sent by President of The Irish Republic, Eamon De Valera, to London to hammer out the details of a treaty that would dictate all that they wished and had been fighting for, the resulting conference led to the
Anglo-Irish Treaty which provided for a brand new Irish State.

Michael was under the belief that a full concession by Great Britain was all but unattainable and that De Valera had sent him there for that very reason so he would not be tainted by such a perceived failure.

The resulting tensions from this treaty led directly to the splitting of the Irish Republican Army with some supporting De Valera and set up the Anti-Treaty IRA and the rest of the men following General Michael Collins as Free State troops.

Than in April of 1922 a group of roughly 200 Anti-Treaty IRA soldiers took over and occupied the
Four Courts located in Dublin, in direct defiance of the Provisional government.

Michael, who wanted to avoid a full blown civil war at all costs, did not attack the garrison of Anti-Treaty IRA men until June 22nd, when the British forced his hand over the abduction of Free State Irish General J.J. O'Connell.

He made one final attempt to persuade the men to leave peacefully, which was unsuccessful, than Collins borrowed two 18pounder artillery pieces from the British government and than proceeded to bombard the Four Courts until its garrison of Anti-Treaty IRA soldiers surrendered en mass.

These actions led directly to the outbreak of the
Irish Civil War , as intense fighting broke out in the capitol of Dublin between the Anti-Treaty Irish Republican Army and the Free State troops and under the Irish Generals leadership the Free State troops quickly took control of the capitol.

It was not long after while supervising an offensive campaign that Collins visited his native Cork, against the orders and wishes of his companions, to meet with several Anti-Treaty leaders in the hopes of ending the bloodshed as quickly as possible, Collins however told his comrades that ," They wouldn't shoot me in my own county".

On August 22nd 1922 Michael Collins luck ran out as he was ambushed in the town of Béal Na mBláth, which in Irish means The Mouth of Flowers, by Anti-Treaty member of the IRA.

This assault lasted roughly 45 minutes with the only fatality being Collins himself.

There have been a few books who stated that the bullet that killed "The Big Fellow" was actually fired by a man named Denis "Sonny" O'Neill, who was a former British Army marksmen, Michael was 31 when he died.

He did not have a long life, but yet he did more and accomplished more in his short time than most who live to be a 100 will ever dream of, but his death was a huge and crippling blow to the fighting men on both sides, for he was still highly respected by his enemeis, and for the country of Ireland as a whole.

One can only wonder at what a brave and couragous man would have been able to do if he had only lived for a few more years, surely he would have been able to keep the country from continuing its violent struggle against one another.

The reason he is one of my heroes is that he fought with honor and for the freedom of the country I hold dear in my heart, while I'm an American and not from Ireland I want everyone to know that I'm not Caucasian person or a white person, I'm an Irish-American who is proud of his heritige.

People always talk about slavery and opression as if they are the only ones who have felt it, The Irish people were always the whipping boy of Great Britian and didn't fare much better when they came to this country, but the Irish people worked hard and made a life for themselves.

Michael Collins should be an inspiration to us all not just Irish people.

Iran Be Patient, Your Turn Is Next

They have talked about it in that past as a possible way to end their nuclear weapons program, but now the need is to cut off the money and personnel that continues to flow from Iran and be used in the slaughter of innocent civilians and our troops.

Iran has thumbed their nose at the international community and its calls for them to end their nuclear weapon program and to stop supporting terrorist organizations such Hezbollah, which does Iran’s dirty work by proxy.

We have warned Iran in the past that if they do not give up their programs that we may be forced to take military action against this radical regime and bomb suspected nuclear sites and any and all terrorist training camps that we are able to find, because make no mistake, they do operate them.

Iran also by using its proxy Hezbollah has trained upwards of 2,000 militia fighters of the radical Iraqi cleric al-Sadr and even has military advisors on the ground training the very people we are fighting and this is completely unacceptable to me and it should be to this country as a whole.

Iran is directly and indirectly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans soldiers in Iraq and something must be done to prevent the flow of explosives to Iraq to be used in roadside bombs against our troops.

President Bush has shown that he actually has the balls and fortitude to take on our enemies, no matter how much the “defeatacrats” want him to run away and not engage our enemies, but rather sit down and talk to them.

Iran says that they are ready to repulse any attack from the United States and they constantly are testing new weapons in the hopes of somehow intimidating us not to attack, which we all know will not work.

I’ve posted about this before, but there is no way that Iran would be able to slow the machine of war that we control, our bombers and strategic missiles would rain down on the Iranian country destroying all radar stations and opening up the country to attack by all other fighters and bombers not equipped with stealth.

Iran is killing our troops in Iraq and it must be stopped, I don’t care what it done, but it needs to happen soon and I believe our President believes this as well, which is why he has sent another carrier task force to the Persian Gulf, just in case Iran gets any ideas.

Even Condi Rice has stated, "I don't think there is a government in the world that would sit by and let the Iranians in particular run networks inside Iraq that are building explosive devices of a very high quality that are being used to kill their soldiers."

Iran has openly and freely advocated its hate and its wish for us to be destroyed, we must take them at their word and trust in the fact that it’s leaders have a death wish, one in which we must make a reality.

We have enemies and we must not let the Democrats and insane libs to be able to shift our focus from our enemies and divide us as they are surely trying to do, we must be strong and stand up, even in the face of overwhelming and blinding stupidity.
