Heavy Bolter !

The Bush administration has authorized the U.S. military to kill or capture Iranian operatives inside Iraq as part of an aggressive new strategy to weaken Tehran's influence across the Middle East and compel it to give up its nuclear program, according to government and counterterrorism officials with direct knowledge of the effort.

For more than a year, U.S. forces in Iraq have secretly detained dozens of suspected Iranian agents, holding them for three to four days at a time. The "catch and release" policy was designed to avoid escalating tensions with Iran and yet intimidate its emissaries.

Finally some relief...

Open-Mindedness on the Curriculum

Ask yourself:
Over what institution does the left exert the greatest control ? (even more than over Hollywood and the news media)

Answer: Academia.

Now then ask:
What institution most closely resembles a police state in its posture toward dissent?

Same Answer: Academia.

At American colleges and universities, Christian student groups are often told to renounce their principles or lose official status. Conservative newspapers are often vandalized. Conservative speakers are often shouted down or sometimes assaulted with impunity. Students who vigorously challenge leftist dogma are often suspended or expelled. Professors can be denied tenure for failure to regurgitate the leftist agenda.

Iraq War Started By Democrats . . . per se

William J. Clinton Signed ‘Iraq Liberation Act’ Into Law 1998

Bottom Line Up Front: The war in Iraq is not “Bush’s war”, it is America’s war and it has been since the early 1990’s. In 1998, then President Bill Clinton on the eve of presidential impeachment hearings signed into law The Iraq Liberation Act which committed U.S. money to supporting the overthrow of a dangerous Saddam Hussein and laid out U.S. policy as supporting a free Iraq.

The Iraq Liberation Act

Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release
October 31, 1998


Today I am signing into law H.R. 4655, the “Iraq Liberation Act of 1998.” This Act makes clear that it is the sense of the Congress that the United States should support those elements of the Iraqi opposition that advocate a very different future for Iraq than the bitter reality of internal repression and external aggression that the current regime in Baghdad now offers.

Let me be clear on what the U.S. objectives are: The United States wants Iraq to rejoin the family of nations as a freedom-loving and law-abiding member. This is in our interest and that of our allies within the region.
W J Clinton

and yet people still want to blame bush for the "iraq quagmire"

More Quotables

In an interview with MediaNews reporter Chris Metinko, Chief Plummer said he had one regret about his 50-plus years in law enforcement, and that was about his conduct during the Berkeley riots of the 1960s.

"I wish I would have hit some people harder," Plummer said.

Perhaps he wishes the leftcoast were less so left-leaning.

Perhaps some discipline back then would have staved off the rot.

Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin.
And how do you tell an anti-Communist?
It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin."

New Year Blossoms in Hampton Roads

Book of the Month Club:
Moses 1.0 aka Genesis. The book that says all you need to know...

One Man for One Woman.
Trust God.
Don't hit your brother.
Things just don't evolve.
We came from somewhere.
We are here for a reason.
We go somewhere when we're done.
Man's soul is what needs preservation;
the environment, not so much.
