One pinch too many



Remember being a kid and getting picked on? Hopefully none of my readers ever commited such a juvenile act, yet I know people in their late 60's who still take joy in other peoples pain. Obviously we need to confront a sect of Muslims who commit such ridiculous forms of self agrandisment.
SOme of the following was culled from the web site American Thinker.
Be aware.
Be ready.
"At the same time, barbaric attacks on civilians, with the obvious assistance of Iran and Syria, are effectively used to stifle the creation of a democratic government in Iraq after it was freed in a three-week war from one of the most brutal dictators of the age. In Lebanon, an Iranian proxy controls the southern part of the country and the democratic government is subjected to threats from the proxy and the continual assassination of political leaders adverse to Syrian control, with the principal suspects being the highest level of the Syrian government."
The authors point was the relevent connections to 1938 Germany and the flacid approach of the the Democracies.
FLACID.
LIMP.

dead worm.
Often it has been said 9/11 isn't enough to wake us up again. 12/07 sure as hell did.
When did Americans become so weak?
As the worlds main provider of FOOD.
Aid for disasters,
Saving people from TYRANNY, except the people here in Mitch Chee Gon. Getting Stabinthebacknow.
Source of technology (until weak, greedy, self absorbed idiots sell it off).
Read the article, make up your own mind.
Again I highly recommend the American Thinker site. Truly insightful.
Oh my point,
A couple more 3 week wars. Followed by ticker tape parades, and free college for anyone willing to to do what OBVIOUSLY WILL BE NEED TO BE DONE.

Again cudos to A.T.!!!!
I know the US of A will prevail, yet I also see the storm clouds gathering....

It will be a long, hard road...but a necessary one. Much like WWIII, A.K.A. "The Cold War"...

I just had to give the "teasing discussion" to my 7 year old son. I made it absolutley clear that I will not tolerate him teasing others-its not acceptable behavior and hurts feelings. I also had to let him know what to do when he is being teased. Its only words, I told him, "...just shake your head and roll your eyes at 'em...and walk away." Easier said than done.

Camo and Teela,
I agree with both comments. I guess America has showed the world we will tolerate it. Problem is "bullies" keep pushing, never thinking that one day THEY will pinch one to many times. Yomamoto recognized it the very day he bombed Hawaii.

Yay! Libby posts!

Good read. Hopefully, there is time for people to wake up and smell the coffee (and I DON'T mean Kofi!). Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it....and all. I just hope the politically correct pendulum swings back toward the middle soon, or we're dooming ourselves.

Good article Libby,
When did Americans become so weak?

Great question. Think about this...

The "greatest generation" came home from WWII and settled down to give birth to the "baby boomers". It was a WIN!

The Korean War was fought by men who had nearly the same ideals as the WWII vets, but it ended in a stalemate. Korea is still divided today with a DMZ. It was a TIE.

The Cold War was not really fought at all. It was "rumors of war", with lots of spying, an arms race, brinksmanship (e.g., the Cuban missile crisis), threats of Mutually Assured Destruction, proxy wars, etc. It was a FORFEIT.

The Vietnam War was a disaster. We started out strong, but then gave up. We walked away, turned our backs on our allies, sneered at our heroes, and turned over South Vietnam to the Communists. It was a LOSS.

Then we became impotent. We cut defense spending. We had 52 Americans taken hostage for 444 days. We tried to rescue them, but couldn't do it without crashing the helicoptors into each other. The remaining copters turned tail and ran. It was a HUMILIATION.

Reagan tried to bring back some respect to America. He built up the military. He started an arms race with Russia. He pushed for the "Star Wars" missile defense system. He had a win in Grenada. But then came the bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut and we turned tail again. But the wall came down in Berlin and Russian Communism collapsed. It was a TURN-AROUND.

George H.W. Bush (a WWII vet) stood up to Saddam Hussein in 1991. He pulled together a coalition and drove Hussein out of Kuwait. He had Saddam's Republican Guard on the run and could have destroyed them, but he stopped short. He let them go. He let Saddam off the hook (at the urging of Muslim coalition members). He left the Kurds and Shiites to die after persuading them to rebel against Saddam. As a result, we paid "substantial penalties for early withdrawal". It was only a PARTIAL VICTORY.

Bill Clinton abdicated duty in favor of hedonism. He failed to respond forcefully (or at all) after: 1) the WTC bombing in 1993, 2) the deaths of 18 Americans in Mogadishu in 1993, 3) the deaths of hundreds of thousands in Rwanda in 1994, 4) the Oklahoma City bombing, 5) the Iraq disarmament crisis, 6) three years of Bosnian crisis, 7) the Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia which killed 19 U.S. servicemen in 1996, 8) the bombing of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 killing 220, and 9) the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole in 2000 killing 17. Clinton was AWOL.

George W. Bush finally stood up to the terrorists after 9/11. He has been aggressive in the Global War On Terror. He has liberated Afghanistan and Iraq. He has frozen the assets of terrorists. He has captured or killed a number of terrorists and thwarted various terrorist plots. He has prevented another attack on U.S. soil. He has been unyielding to Iran and North Korea. But he has been facing constant opposition from Democrats and even some in the GOP. The jury is still out on GWB, but it would seem he has done plenty of good.

However, he just hasn't delivered the "KO" punch. OBL and Zawahiri are still at large. Iraq is still in turmoil. Iran, North Korea, Syria, Hamas and Hezbollah are still making noise. It would be nice if God would just bless GWB with a few quick "rabbit punches" to set our enemies back on their heels. But whether it happens or not, you can't say that GWB hasn't tried.

Sorry for blathering on...

Hello,

I recently published an article on the dangers and benefits of student loans and other forms of college financial aid – here is a quote from it, in case you are interested:
Student loans repayment can be a real nightmare without adopting some strategies that would help the new graduates to organize their social and financial life. Here are some strategies they can use to do this:
- An additional part-time job;
- Freelancing is another option (meaning that they can do particular pieces of work for different organisations, without working all the time for a single organisation);
- They should try to keep their living expenses as low as possible (live in a smaller apartment, live with a roommate to share some of the expenses, find an apartment that is closer to the job, to eliminate the extra-expenses for transport etc.);
- To apply for forbearance (this is an immediate solution for hard times when the new graduate is in impossibility to re-pay the amount of money and the need for student loan consolidation becomes apparent; it is a temporary period, when the graduate can postpone or delay his or her re-payments until a later time on a federal or direct loan after the beginning of the re-payment, and when the student doesn’t qualify for deferral). The forbearance must be applied through the lenders of the loans.
- To consolidate the payments.
If you feel this helps, please drop by my website for additional information, such as federal student loans information or additional resources on private student loans .

Regards,

Michael
