Where is Code Pink?

July 21, 2009

Our Dear Leader‘s administration has announced that it plans on increasing the size of the US Army by “22,000 soldiers to help meet the needs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan…”

Where is Code Pink? Why are they not protesting this? Could it be that they really aren’t a non-partisan group only interest in “world peace?”

Code Pink’s silence in this matter speaks volumes about their actual, extremist far left, agenda.

Memorial Day Monday Book Pick: Band of Brothers

May 25, 2009

Band of Brothers: E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne from Normandy to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest by Stephen E. Ambrose

A Memorial Day special Monday Book Pick. If you have seen the series and haven’t read the book, do so. There is a lot of detail that didn’t make it to the screen. This book follows Easy Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne, from their initial training to the unit’s deactivation in November 1945. The Normande landings on D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge, and more.

How the left "supports the Troops"

September 25, 2008

Here is another example of an “open minded and tolerant liberal” at work.
A US Army reservist and Iraq War Veteran had his car vandalized by one or more “peace activists.”

Dallas police are looking into a shocking crime against an Iraq War vet that took place on a college campus. Overnight Tuesday, someone took vandalized 23-year-old Army veteran Viktor Whitlow’s vehicle while it was parked at Dallas Baptist University. Ironically, the mascot at DBU is the Patriot.
The vandals used a box cutter to destroy the inside of his jeep, they slashed five tires and smashed through the windshield. Perhaps the most shocking detail to the vandalism was the message spray painted on his hood.

The “message” left was “Soldiers are murderers.” Yup, another fine example of how liberals support the United State Military. Keep this in mind on November 4, 2008.

233 years ago today (That was 1775 for the math challenged), the US Army was created by an act of the Continental Congress. It was called the Continental Army, since the United States of America was not to be formed for almost another year.

Good news out of Iraq

Way to go Task Force 88!

Iraqi and Coalition forces continue to press the fight against al Qaeda in Iraq in the northeastern province of Diyala, where the terror group maintains small pockets. In the latest series of raids as part of Operation Raider Harvest, Iraqi and US forces killed 30 al Qaeda operatives and captured 21, including a senior al Qaeda leader, during raids and operations.

On Jan. 22 and Jan. 23, special operations teams of Task Force 88 carried out two raids north of Baqubah. The first raid targeted “an improvised explosive device specialist involved in coordinating IED and suicide-vest attacks in the region … with ties to several al Qaeda in Iraq senior leaders.” The Special Forces team killed the high-value target and one other operative during the raid, and found improvised explosive devices and grenades at the scene.
