Stuff you should know

You would think that someone so supposedly concerned with our troops and our overseas presence would want all the information he or she could garner concerning those assets. Mrs. Pelosi's snubbing of Gen. Petraus' briefing, will be seen by the far left as just desserts for a Bush crony, while the rest of the world will know it for what it is....sour grapes, and an unwillingness to deal with the real issues on the ground in the Middle East. Her recent trip to Damascus, not withstanding; for that is another means of manipulation for another time (see previous post). Here is another example of the Democrat Speaker of the House ignoring national security interests for political gain....again! Her actions continue to score points with a constituency ever more shrill and unbalanced. Those who would be influenced by international powerhouses and mental masters of political affairs like Sean Penn, Michael Moore, and Susan Sarandon, somehow always seem to be close to the camera and microphone. I wish my hand were on the plug so I could pull it when they start.
Harry Reid. What can be said about Harry that hasn't already been said more eloquently by others? Nothing much, but perhaps it's time for a not so eloquent enumeration of his major flaw: He's anti-American. Period. How else could you describe the Senate Majority Leader speaking for the MAJORITY, telling our enemies not to worry, because "we are losing the war"? He's not just telling our enemies but our allies and our troops. Granted, our enemies and our "allies" (emphasis added) need no such encouragement, for our allies are besieged by liberals within their own government and their own media dogs.
Compulsory military training would do away with the privileged existence of most of the liberal Democrat party. It would instill in them the necessary knowledge and experience to intelligently speak on subjects as elected leaders tasked with the lawful requirement to wage war. We who have served know that there are those that have slid by and have just "gotten along" in the military, though they are few, they usually get out after one hitch anyway. The numbers who would slide by would be exponentially smaller when boiled down in the political pot from which we select our leaders.
The removal of our troops from this conflict before the job is done will be catastrophic will resonate globally. It will embolden the Islamofacists, whether they are American, Arabic, Indonesian, African or European. It will have such a devastating effect on the morale of our troops, which we would be unlikely to recover from. Incidentally, it is markedly high now, considering the number of attacks they receive from the enemies in Iraq, within the US government and media. It will undermine our national credibility in doing what we promised by bringing democracy to a part of the world desperately in need of fair government. Our nearness to Iran is another reason why we should retain a presence there. While Ahmedinajad is pursuing his nuclear ambitions, contrary to every civilized nation in the world, closer is better than farther.
When Israel finally decides that it’s had enough meddling by Iranian-sponsored Hezbollah and Hamas and bombs Iran back to the Stone Age after years of restraint, we will need those troops in place. The United States, Israel's only ally, will need to be close by to keep the hordes from descending. Our "new sheriff in town" Pelosi and her brood don't seem to understand this. Even Syria understands this, that's why it is making such an effort in bamboozling Pelosi. Saudi Arabia and their royal court mostly understand this, and are working behind the scenes because Iran's Shiite Islamic caliphate is not in their interests; though there are those within the Saudi government who are financing terrorism and Qutbist as well as Wahabbi style mosques. They, with fanatical smiles, would gladly bring about Armageddon. We should address directly those in other countries and Saudi Arabia proper, who are spreading hate and fomenting conflict throughout the world. Since they are operating with mosques in our country we should demand to operate churches in theirs. Though Christians who would readily go there as missionaries may be hard to come by, I know they exist. Nowhere is there a more hostile environment for religious differences than in countries that are predominantly Islamic.
