Scouts Honor: Afghanistan Is No Place For Americans

ET'S DROP THE PLUMB BOB HERE, talk some straight talk, and rid ourselves of mixed emotions on all this war effort hubris. Attempting to transform the wild west of Afghanistan is much too expensive, much too depleting, of Western resources—perhaps not as much as the fiasco in Iraq, but it is simply the same kind of misguided belief in the mutability of Muslim man that pays insufficient attention to the permanent hold of Islam, and what it means for the West. Resources are limited. Men of valor, war and peace material, morale. They have been squandered, in Afghanistan, as in...

War Records: July 17, 2003

o war is good, when taken from the prospective that a single lost life is a life never again capable of enjoying the fruits of endless debate on the simplest of matters. But the vital point, or damn well ought to be, is this: The case in favor of overthrowing Saddam's regime was overwhelming, even without a frosting of yellowcake. Despite the UN's weakness. That's why members of Congress from both parties voted to authorize the President to use military force against Saddam more than THREE months BEFORE the State of the Union.

Incoming Bogey, Six Plus Six

The Persian Ten Year Plan? ERE'S AN EYE OPENER, maybe an eye burner if one actually takes the time to realize how much this administration has co-operated with a transnational political policy which is actually succeeding in putting Humpty Dumpty (the Caliphate) back together again, and guess what, there are only a few pieces of the eggshell puzzle left to go. According to the former president (1997-2005) of Iran Seyed Mohammad Khatami, in what he dubbed "six plus six", Iran's eventual goal was to see secular dictators in all the countries bordering Iraq as well as Egypt, to fall. Note...


The Gall Of Simplicity

E FOUND THIS SHORT ENTRY FULL OF amazing clarity and insight. Don't forget to check out the author's blog: I saw one of these suboids interviewed in a recent Panorama or Frontline about the death of Bin Laden. As he was talking about killing it was obvious that his pleasure centers were lit up like the macy's fireworks and he went into some kind of romantic, blissed out state while fondling his kalishnikov. It wasn't just a show of what they ignorantly consider strength. He had genuine romantic feelings for that weapon and the death it could bring. Ten thousand...


Palin Addresses Gridiron Club

N A SERIOUS NOD to the intense interest in last year's Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin, the Gridiron Club’s board dropped a 100 year old rule—often violate—that comments made at the dinner were off the record and could not be reported. Instead, twittering was allowed, although not during speeches or songs. Palin tweets herself and noted in her dinner remarks that she had “the Twitter thing going.” Palin was surrounded by reporters at the pre-dinner reception held on an evening when Washington was in the midst of an early snow storm. The former Alaska governor was dressed in a stylish...
