Starring: Iraq

We've already seen movies and tv shows about the war in Iraq. Brian De Palma isn't the first, but he may be the worst. In his new film, "Redacted", De Palma focuses in on the rape and murder of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and her family that took place in 2006 by American soldiers.
"The movie is an attempt to bring the reality of what is happening in Iraq to the American people," he told reporters after a press screening.
So, this incident is an example of what's happening in Iraq? Not the troops trying to build up the Iraqi police and military forces? Not them rebuilding schools and hospitals? Taking little children and caring for them day and night in the hospital? But rape and murder? This shouldn't surprise anyone. This movie, and others that will be coming out, follow four of the rules I made up for a "great" Hollywood movie.

Rule 5. If your film shows the U.S. military in ONLY a positive way, it's bad.
Rule 6. If your film shows the U.S. military in ANYWAY negative, it's good.
Rule 7. If your film shows America in ONLY a good, positive way, thats wrong.
Rule 8. If your film shows America as the evil, oppressive place we know it to be, it's a hit.


Of course Tim Robbins, who claims that American troops have killed over 400,000 civilian, is going to love this movie. But the same can't be said for Pete Hegseth of Vets for Freedom.
"These statements reflect the utter ignorance of Robbins and DePalma about what American soldiers are actually doing in Iraq. At every opportunity, they use their celebrity status to bash the very soldiers and Marines who are fighting for them. They reflexively side with radical Islamic terrorists rather than take an honest look at the situation in Iraq."

I Gots To Get One

I don't normally like when people dress their pets up. I've even ragged some who have, but this is freakin' sweet. I might have to get one of these.
Poor Israelis. The world hates them and they're situated in an area surrounded people who would love nothing more than to kill every last one of them. Including the editor-in-chief of Al-Quds Al-Arabi in London.
If the Iranian missiles strike Israel, by Allah, I will go to Trafalgar Square and dance with delight
Ah, such peaceful people.

You know, I'm not surprised that this guy does work for the BBC, they're known for their anti-Israel bias, but I am surprised he does work for Sky News. Sky News refused to comment, but the Beeb said this:
The BBC will sometimes need to report on or interview people whose views may cause serious offense to many in our audiences. We must be convinced, after appropriate referral, that a clear public interest outweighs the possible offense. We [the BBC] must rigorously test contributors expressing contentious views during an interview
Saying things that offend people is one thing, but praying for the death of people is whole different story.

The Continued Wussification Of America

First it was dodgeball, then it was a limit on how many times a team could score and now it's a ban on tag. What is happening to our country? We're being taken over by a bunch of freakin' pansies. If this is what's known as "progress" leave me out of it.

Angry Sikhs

Sikhs are angry over the TSA's new hat checking policy claiming that it's racial profiling and against their religion. You know what I say to that? Tough. Your religion doesn't trump our safety. That goes for Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and any of the other religions I can think of right now. You don't like it, you have two options. Either comply and be searched or piss off and don't fly.

Personally, I want everyone at the airport searched. You have no idea who's who. We've already seen that al-Qaeda, and Muslim fundamentalists in general, have no problem to using children to kill. I want kids checked, nuns, old people, the Black man with his family, that White man in the suit, the pregnant woman... everyone. When we let PC bullshit get in our way, people die.
Story

Creating Terrorists

Once again, Glenn Beck shows why he's the best thing on CNN. On Wednesday's episode of his show he had on former Israeli ambassador to the U.N, Dane Gold. In it they talked about Iran and terrorism. You can read the interview here. Just search for "Dane Gold".

But what I want to point out is something Gold said at the end of the interview. He and Beck were talking about Iraq, how we're creating more terrorists and pulling troops out. Gold said the following
Well, I don`t want to make a suggestion as an Israeli what the United States should do in Iraq. They`re your troops. However, I will say this: Whether you leave in three months or in three years, you have to understand that withdrawal engenders jihadism. Al Qaeda was formed in 1989 when the Soviets were defeated in Afghanistan and withdrew. When Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip, Hamas won the Palestinian elections and Al Qaeda went into Gaza. You have to understand that is the dynamic of radical Islam.
If we make a full withdraw, like many Democrats want, what will happen?

A Ringing Endorsement

How do you spell cockroach in Spanish? C.A.S.T.R.O.

Fidel Castro, or most likely someone pretending to be Castro, has thrown his support behind a Clinton/Obama ticket in next years election. Jeez, terrorists love Democrats. Mass murdering Communist dictators love Democrats. They must be doing something right. I wonder how this will play out in Florida, it being a key swing state. Will Cuban refugees want to support a candidate who's backed by Castro?

Ken Leonard
Ken Leonard (On The Right)
From High Point, North Carolina

Every once in a while you run across one of those "feel good stories". Those stories that show us just what a person can do when they really want it bad enough. And Ken Leonard has one of those stories.

In 2005, Ken Leonard left his job as a police officer in High Point, North Carolina to go to Iraq to work with a private security firm. In December of that year, Ken, along with five other men in his vehicle and six others in the vehicle behind him, was hit by a roadside bomb outside of Baghdad. "After the bomb went off, I knew exactly what had happened," Leonard recalled. "My feet got jarred, so I knew they were hit." While others in his vehicle were injured, he had received the worst of it. He had lost both his feet.

The vehicle behind them pushed Leonard's to a safer area. But flames were coming out of the air conditioning vents and they had to get out. Leonard crawled from the car and fell to the pavement. "That’s when I saw my feet," he said. "I could tell they were gone. They were still attached, but they were shredded."

On July 19, 2007, Ken Leonard went back to North Carolina to get his job back with the police force. To do that he needed to pass the Police Officers Physical Abilities Test, which, among other things, consisted of a 200-yard run to be finished in under 7 minutes, 20 seconds. And he did just that with 24 seconds to spare.

"Somebody told me one time they said, 'You know, what you've lost is just bone and muscle. You've still got heart, and you've still got, you know, what's up here,'" Leonard said, pointing to his head.

Star Trek Movie News #6

Not any real news, but it seems that Shatner may not be in the movie. But you have to take this for what it's worth since nothing official has been announced and Shanter being Shatner.

Also, Zackary Quinto, who will play Mr. Spock, has stated that his Spock will be more emotional. Now when I first read that I was kind of upset. Mr. Spock doesn't show emotion. Never really did, except on a few occasion later in his life, but then I read the part underneath the video.
Interesting highlight is that Quinto thinks his early Spock will be ‘more charged with the internal struggle’ of being half human and half Vulcan
Which actually makes perfect sense and may be a good dramatic element for the film to pursue.

Recently Deported Illegal Still At It

Recently deported illegal immigrant, Elvira Arellano, is now saying that the U.S. broke the law first by "allowing illegal immigrants to pay taxes". Huh? It's video so I can't watch it. Could someone do that and let me know what the hell this woman's talking about?

:UPDATE:
The Mexican Senate has sided with Arellano.
A Mexican Senate committee passed a measure Wednesday urging President Felipe Calderon to send a diplomatic note to the United States protesting the deportation of an illegal migrant who took refuge in a Chicago church for a year.
Arellano added,
For me it is very important that our government take a strong stand to defend all of us who decide to migrate to another country
So, she wants the Mexican government to tell the U.S. government what to do? Bullshit to that. But, as we've seen with this whole "Dog" Chapman debacle, Bush will most likely bend over and take it and allow her back in.

29 years old from Pontotoc, Mississippi

May 14, 2007


A kindhearted patriot. That's how SSgt. John Self was described by those who knew him. "John was a good boy, a good boy who loved his country and who loved Christ and for that he’ll move on to a better place," said Laron Self, Sgt. Self's grandfather, fighting back tears.

SSgt. Self was killed, and three other airmen wounded, when an IED hit the Humvee they were traveling in while on his 79th patrol in Baghdad, Iraq. "John volunteered for this deployment while he was deployed to (Southwest Asia)," said Chief Master Sgt. Keith Morris, 314th SFS security forces manager. "We discussed this deployment via e-mail. He said he made his decision to deploy again to gain experience."


"He could always find the humor in anything regardless of the situation," said Senior Airman Daniel Hunsperger, a member of Self's fire team. "He believed in everything he did. This was obvious to us after learning he had only spent two weeks home between his last deployment and volunteering for this one."

On May 23, SSgt. Self was laid to rest with a crowd of hundreds to pay their respects. People lined both sides of the highway for more than 5 miles waving flags as the hundred-car procession traveled to the burial. Shouts of, "We love you John," and "Thank you, John, could be heard as the train of cars passed by. "That’s a hero," Susan Chambers, one of the many mourners, said to her son as she pointed at Self's casket.

Moose More Dangerous Than Man?

Here's an interesting story.
Norway is concerned that its national animal, the moose, is harming the climate by emitting an estimated 2,100 kilos of carbon dioxide a year through its belching and farting.
But, there may be some good news.
Norway has some 120,000 moose but an estimated 35,000 are expected to be killed in this year's moose hunting season

Criminals With Kids Need Special Treatment

Hang on. Let me get comfortable.
Ahh, better. Elvira Arellano, an illegal alien, who was deported once before in 1997 and snuck back into this country, has been deported once again. And some are up in arms.
Arellano has repeatedly called for a stop to immigration raids that break up families with some members who are in the U.S. legally and others illegally
Their argument is that by deporting her they are breaking her family apart by separating her from her child? Uh, what? That's what tends to happen when you break the law. Let me give you an example A mother is arrested selling drugs, is convicted and goes to jail. Should she not go to jail simply because she has a child? How are illegals who have kids any different than anyone else?

:UPDATE:
Master Of None has a good post up about this.

Military Suicides On The Rise

War is hell. There's no doubt about it. It's a nasty business, but when gets so that this is happening then maybe some changers are needed.

Repeated and ever-longer war-zone tours are putting increasing pressure on military families, the Army said Thursday, helping push soldier suicides to a record rate.

There were 99 Army suicides last year — nearly half of them soldiers who hadn't reached their 25th birthdays, about a third of them serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.
There was a plan on the Senate floor that would have give soldiers the same amount of time of rest that they serve in the battlefield. So, if a soldier is in Iraq for six months he'd get six months of rest before he has to return. But it was voted down by Republicans. Now, I don't know if it was a bill all on it's own or if it was attached to something else, but knowing how Congress works, it was probably attached to something else that Republicans didn't like. If that's the case, then someone should re-introduce it as a stand alone bill and get it passed.

Stokely refused to to rest, and instead took up a flanking position at the rear of his truck to watch their backs. Which, as a Cav Scout dismount, he saw as his job.

Politics In America. A Downhill Game

This has been, without doubt, the dumbest political season I've ever seen. First, well, maybe not first, but up there, we had the "What Do You Hate About America?" question at the MSNBC Republican debate. Now we have CNN's White House correspondent Suzanne Malveaux asking if Hillary Clinton could sustain black support with Obama in the race. That's like asking Obama if he could sustain Latino or Asian support. Or Bill Richardson if he could sustain White or Indian support. Race should play absolutely 0% in politics. Yeah, I know every race has their own issues, but you'll never find a candidate who can speak to all of them.

Then we have this article about Fred Thompson from what is supposed to be a professional newspaper. Really? Is this all they could come up with?

Sadly, this isn't anything new. Remember MTV and someone asking if Bill Clinton wore boxers or briefs? I really don't care what kind of underwear my president wears, or whether she's showing too much cleavage, or what kind of song is on their iPod. Tell me what you're going to do about taxes, the border and terrorism. Have we really become such a self-centered bunch of brain dead morons that we would rather know about a candidate's religion or past marriages than the money, our money, that's being wasted on their vacations to the Virgin Islands and bridges that lead no where?

"Stay"
Obscured By Clouds


It's a beautiful song. An ethereal love song, if you will. Pink Floyd had this innate ability to write amazing piece of music that had not only style but substance as well. Sit back and enjoy Gilmour and Wright's intrumental work or focus in on the lyrics.

What Would Jalal Do?

Well, the first thing I'd do is join the NY Times and begin to undermine the troops with every article I write. Then, I'd write stories that "bent the truth" to fit my view of the world. No matter how wrong it was. Then I claim the effort of the U.S. military was a failure the very first chance I got and ignore all the stories that contradicted me. Then I'd blame Bush for everything under the sun. That's how I would attack were I a terrorist.

Star Trek News

There's a rumor, that may have some merit, that Tom Cruise could make a cameo in the upcoming Star Trek movie as Captain Christopher Pike. For you non-Trekkers, Pike was the captain of the Enterprise before Kirk. I don't think it's a bad casting choice, but I just don't think Cruise could fit into a Starfleet uniform without looking totally out of place.

:UPDATE:
Three new pieces of news. Now, none of this is confirmed. Only rumor.

1) Paramount may be interested in having Russell Crow play a villain in the movie. I'd like to see that actually. Crow is a great actor.

2) Daughter of famed actor Syndey Poitier, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, has stated that she auditioned for J.J. Abrams for a role in the movie. Speculation on the site is that it is for Lt. Uhura. I'm certainly down for that. She's hot. Might be a little too old, but I think she could pull it off.

3) And it appears that the character of Pavel Chekov will indeed be included.

Yes, I am excited about this movie. Can you tell?

Duty, Honor, Country. Col. James Harrison Jr. embodied that ethos, said his family. He was committed to the mission of the United States in Afghanistan and spoke with great pride about the accomplishments of the men and women with which he served

Col. Harrison was killed on May 6 when a Taliban fighter, dressed as an Afghan police officer, shot him at point blank range at Pul-e-Charkhi prison near Kabul. Also killed along side Col. Harrison was Master Sgt. Wilberto Sabalu Jr. and two other soldiers were wounded. All four men were working as mentors to Afghan troops providing external security for the prison.

Harrison graduated from the U.S. Military Academy in 1981. He also graduated from the Military Police Basic and Advanced courses, the Combined Arms and Services Staff School, the Command and General Staff College, the Army Inspector General Course, and the Industrial College of the Armed Forces. He earned a Master of Business Administration from Syracuse University and a Master of Science degree in national security and strategic studies from the National Defense University. Before going to Afghanistan in December 2006, he was assigned to Fort Leavenworth as director of the School for Command Preparation at the Command and General Staff College.

He is survived by his wife and three sons.

If you're a Democrat that is.

Reports indicate that the Iraq surge is working. And in the latest USA Today/Gallup poll shows that support for Iraq surge is gaining. Down slightly is the percentage of people who want a full retreat and the number of people who think going into Iraq was a mistake.

Maybe the media's campaign against the troops is starting to fail. Let's hope.

Barack Obama: Let's Invade Pakistan

That's what he seems to be saying.
If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will.
Musharraf won't allow U.S. troops into Pakistan, so an invasion is the only way to get them in there. I have even less experience in matter of foreign affairs than Obama does and even I realize that going into Pakistan would be bad. Musharraf is holding onto power, and his life, by the thinest of threads as it is. We go in, he's killed and someone very undesirable gets their hands on Pakistan's nuclear weapons. If Obama thinks Iraq is bad, wait until al-Qaeda has nukes. Now think about that. If this scenario occurs, and it very well could, do we really want someone in the White House with absolutely zero experience? I don't. I want someone who knows what he's doing, not someone who's been an armchair quarterback for seven years. In today's world of psychotic Jihadists , Barack Obama is the absolute worst choice for president.

Master Sgt. Michael Wert, an intelligence chief for the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing at Cherry Point in Havelock, N.C., was vacationing on an early May weekend with his family at the beach when he saw two boys struggling in the surf.

His wife, Debbie, said her husband rushed into the water to help while she went to call 911. Their daughter, Katrina, grabbed a boogie board and followed Wert into the water. She managed to help the boys onto the board, but didn't see her dad with them. One of the boys told her that he (Wert) had to let them go and had died.

The rescue team found Wert, brought him to shore and tried to revive him. As they worked, strangers prayed with the family and comforted the Wert children.

Wert was six days shy of celebrating his 36th birthday.

Wert joined the Marines in 1989 after graduating from Alma High School, in Saginaw, MI, where he was a cross-country runner. He served in Operation Desert Storm and supported Operation Iraqi Freedom.

As the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing intelligence chief, he gracefully accepted the role as the go-to guy for his Marines. He was the one who helped his major’s son build a pinewood derby car while the officer was deployed. He knew when babies were born in the command. He kept up with birthdays and anniversaries. He was the first to greet Marines getting off the plane after a tour in Iraq. "He was always there to help," Lt. Col. William Conley, commander of Marine Wing Headquarters Squadron 2 said at a memorial service for Wert. "Master Sergeant Wert responded to the need for help. As always, he didn’t hesitate — he went to help. He tragically lost his own life in doing so."

"I admired him for his commitment to service and the Marine Corps," said Col. Kathy Tate. "We know he was a hero every day."


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 Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
