God Be With Our Troops and America- It Is A Showdown

I just got home from work and went to Drudge to see what was new.
Right off the bat I got hit in the face hard with this………….
GOP to Dems: Pull Troops Now? Okay, then let’s vote…
Troop resolution Tonight; hitting the House floor between 5:45 and 7:45…
Ultimate showdown…
IT’S A GO: IRAQ WAR SHOWDOWN IN CONGRESS: VOTE ON TROOP PULLOUT

What is happening to America where did it go? The Democrats want to throw in the towell, they hate America, our Military and are pure evil!
I am shaking and can hardly type, this is a bold move by the Republicans, very smart but dangerous too. Like put up or shut up kind of thing. I am praying with each letter I type that we will not pull out, and that this will end the left’s socialists take over of our country.
If they vote to pull out I am so afraid what will happen to our troops. The insurgents will be even worse then they are now while I troops are still there. All hell is going to break loose!
Please pray everyone!!!

A Letter From A Soldier Serving In Iraq

Those of you that have been reading my blog know my passion for supporting our Military. I was visiting Mudville Gazette and saw this………….

I received an email from a mother whose son is currently fighting in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division. He and his platoon have penned a message to the American public that is a little different from the message we are getting via the MSM. He asked his mom to help get this message out and she asked me. Here it from the soldiers on the ground…..

The letter is HERE
Thank you Greyhawk where I saw the link in a post at Mudville Gazette

George Galloway Says U.S. Will Not Dare to Attack Syria

.

British MP George Galloway at Damascus University: U.S. Army is Defeated in Iraq. U.S. Will Not Dare to Attack Syria. Bashar Al-Assad is the Last Arab Leader and Tony Blair Is A Slave of Slaves

11/13/2005

Here is the video of Galloway
…………………my blood is boiling!!!!!!!
And here is the Transcript………………..
Following are excerpts from a speech given by British MP George Galloway in Damascus University, which aired on Al-Jazeera TV on November 13, 2005.
Galloway: Condoleezza Rice has been touring the Arab countries to speak about Syria, so I have come to Syria to speak about Condoleezza Rice.
You know, it never ceases to surprise me that Arab governments can allow a foreigner to come to their country and sit on their tables with their leaders to insult and attack another Arab country. This is the behavior of slave governments, and the Bahraini regime should have asked Condoleezza to leave when she insulted Syria in their presence, in their capital. In fact maybe it’s the rulers who should leave. When she visited Cairo a few months ago, the Egyptian masses – who are still a part of the Arab world, by the way – raised the slogan about the Arab rulers: “Give them a visa ya Condoleezza,” and I believe that this is a slogan which has not lost its meaning.
I want to be very clear. I was clear in July, and what I said in July has followed me all over the world by the American and Israeli propaganda machine, so I want to be very clear again. All dignified people in the world, whether Arabs or Muslims or others with dignity, are very proud of the speech made by President Bashar Al-Assad a few days ago here in Damascus.
For me he is the last Arab ruler, and Syria is the last Arab country. It is the fortress of the remaining dignity of the Arabs, and that’s why I’m proud to be here and addressing you this evening.
After July he (Blair) condemned me for what I said about President Bashar, but only two years before, he was taking the president to meet Her Majesty the queen. If President Bashar is so dangerous a man, why did he take him inside the royal palace in London? The truth is, Mr. Blair changed his policy towards Syria because President Bush ordered him to. Mr. Blair too is a slave of the slaves.
The reason that Syria is facing this crisis is not because of any bad thing which Syria has done or any weaknesses within its democracy, or within its economy, or within its human rights record – and there are weaknesses in all three of these. The reason why Syria is being threatened is not because of anything bad which she did, but because of the good which she is doing. That’s the reason why Syria is being threatened – because she will not betray the Palestinian resistance, because she will not betray the Lebanese resistance, Hizbullah, because she will not sign a shameful surrender-peace with General Sharon, and above all – more than any of these others – because Syria will not allow her country to be used as a military base for America to crush the resistance in Iraq. These are the reasons why Syria is being targeted by these imperial powers.
Now I warned in July that Lebanon was being sharpened as a knife to be used in the back of Syria, and I warned the Lebanese people that those who care nothing for Lebanon are preparing to use you and your government to weaken the last Arab power. And I turned out to be right. This knife has been sharpened and now they are using it.
And I warned in July about this character, Mehlis. And please don’t call him Sayyed (Mr.) Mehlis. I’m not calling him Sayyed Mehlis.
Translator: We don’t call him Sayyed Mehlis…
Galloway: No, I was interviewed by several Syrian journalists today, and every time I said Mehlis, they said SayyedMehlis. No, he’s not SayyedMehlis.
Just because somebody is appointed by the UN which became – you know, Lenin called the League of Nations a “Thieves’ kitchen.” The UN became a thieves’ and beggars’ kitchen, where the thieves make the decisions, and the beggars vote for the decisions, and if the beggars will not vote for the decisions, the thieves will implement the decisions anyway. Because somebody came through the UN it doesn’t make them a saint. Mehlis is not a saint, he’s not an impartial civil servant, he is a policeman with a record of framing Arab governments, and this is why he was given this job. He was the one who investigated the so-called La Belle disco explosion in Berlin. He named Libya as the responsible party for this crime, and Ronald Reagan used this finding to send a massive and violent attack against Libya, which killed innocent people including the daughter of Mu’ammar Qadhafi herself. This was Mehlis’ job, to falsely accuse Libya of this crime, which everybody now knows Libya was not responsible for.
This record of framing Arab countries is the qualification of Mehlis for his new job of framing Syria.
This is why he was given this job, and everybody should be aware that the verdict of the Mehlis inquiry was already fixed before he began his investigation. This murder of Hariri was deliberately planned and executed precisely to implicate Syria and to set in train the events which have unfolded.
Now some people asked me here, do I think that this will all lead to a situation in Syria which can be compared to the fate of Iraq, and I say no. There is no chance of the American army invading Syria, for many reasons. The first reason is because the Iraqi resistance are defeating the American army in Iraq.
You know, when I went to the American Senate on May the 17th of this year, which seems only yesterday for me, and for the American senators – I heard myself say on a video clip the other day – I told the Senate on May the 17th that 1,600 American soldiers had died. 1,600. That was on May 17th. Today, it’s almost 2,100 and rising rapidly. October was the bloodiest month of the war, with the Americans losing 107 dead soldiers in one month.
Now the Americans cannot control one single street in any town or city or village of Arab Iraq. Not one street can they control safely.
They can control the skies, but only if they don’t come low enough for the RPG.
No American soldier who leaves his barracks can be sure that he will come back alive.
Translator: No American soldier who leaves his suitcases can be sure he will return to life again.
Galloway: Every Iraqi, every roadside, every car is a potential deadly ending for him. And the American army… The American army is losing the will to fight.
So America is losing the war in Iraq and she cannot dream of starting a new war in Syria. The second reason is: The public opinion in Britain and America is moving decisively against the policy of Bush and Blair.
The political strength of George Bush is beginning to seep away into the sand. He is not strong enough to declare another war against another Arab country.
And in Britain, these are the final days of Tony Blair. The British media is discussing every day whether this day Blair will resign.
And the third reason why they will never invade Syria is sitting here and is outside in the streets. It is that if they dared to invade Syria, every dignified person in the country would fight them exactly as the people of Iraq are fighting them now.

They Were Struck With A Hellfire….

Air Force fighters strike insurgents

Air Force F-15 Eagles, F-16 Fighting Falcons and MQ-1 Predators flew air strikes against anti-Iraqi forces near the Iraq-Syria border in support of Operation Steel Curtain.
After Marines swept into Ubaydi, a town near Karabilah, Nov. 14, they came in contact with anti-Iraqi forces. The F-15s flew in and dropped precision-guided bombs against enemy forces in a grove of trees.
A Predator unmanned aerial vehicle fired a Hellfire missile at a building from where enemy forces were shooting and successfully drove them from the location.
Later the same day, F-16s and a Predator responded to provide ground support in the same area. The Predator successfully fired a Hellfire missile against insurgents entrenched in a tree line.
Operation Steel Curtain aims to restore Iraqi sovereign control along the Iraq-Syria border and destroy the al Qaeda terrorists operating throughout the Al Qa’im region. More than 1,000 Iraqi Soldiers and 2,500 Marines, Soldiers and Sailors are participating in Operation Steel Curtain.
Ubaydi is on the banks of the Euphrates River, about 12.5 miles from the Syrian border and separated into two main areas, Old and New Ubaydi. Coalition forces cleared Old Ubaydi. Now the Iraqi Army and coalition forces are focusing on clearing the al-Qaeda in Iraq stronghold of New Ubaydi.
This offensive is part of the larger Operation Sayaid (Hunter), designed to prevent al Qaeda in Iraq from operating in the Euphrates River Valley and throughout Al Anbar. The operation is also to establish a permanent Iraqi army presence in the Al Qa’im region.
Iraqi and coalition forces cleared the towns of Husaybah and Karabilah early in the operation, which began Nov. 5, and established a permanent security presence. Coalition officials suspect many of the terrorists now fighting in Ubaydi fled from the two towns.
While the fighting has been sporadic, it has been characterized by ground commanders as some of the heaviest since the operation began.
Intelligence reports indicate the strong resistance to the Iraqi and coalition push into the city is due, in large part, to the fact that terrorists believe they are trapped and have nowhere else to go.
Officials estimate coalition forces killed 30 terrorists since Nov. 15, which brings the total to nearly 80 killed since forces started entering Ubaydi.
Most of those terrorists fell to coalition air strikes, although some were killed in direct small-arms fire engagements with Iraqi and coalition ground forces.
Forces continue clearing the city — house-by-house — occasionally encountering buildings that rigged with explosives and triggered to detonate on entry. The also seized numerous weapons caches, including several that contained suicide vests and bomb-making material.
Overall, forces have found and destroyed 36 weapons caches during the sweep.
Iraqi and coalition forces have also found numerous improvised explosive devices and mines. Coalition forces destroyed the vast majority of these weapons. Detained terrorists revealed the precise locations of many IEDs. Forces have found 107 IEDs and mines.
Coalition forces captured several insurgents trying to sneak out of the area by crawling among a flock of sheep. Overall, the forces have captured 150 terrorists.

Cindy Sheehan Demands Trial—- Good Grief!

.

‘Peace Mom’ Demands Trial better yet ( ‘Psycho Mom’ Demands Trial )
WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2005
CBS barf-ola so called news
AP) War protester Cindy Sheehan said Wednesday she was demanding a trial for demonstrating without a permit outside the White House.
Sheehan also plans to revive her protest near President Bush’s Texas ranch during Thanksgiving week, despite new county ordinances banning roadside camping.
Sheehan and other anti-war activists arrested with her Sept. 26 in Washington conducted a news conference in front of the federal courthouse Wednesday before heading to a court appearance on the misdemeanor charge.
Sheehan, whose 24-year-old soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq last year, said “2,062 people have been killed as of today in this monstrosity.”
She and more than 300 others were arrested as they gathered near an entrance to the White House grounds. Each carried a board bearing the name of a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq.
The arrests outside the White House concluded a weekend of protests that drew over 100,000 anti-war activists, and a smaller group of counter-protesters. It was the largest anti-war demonstration since the Vietnam War.
Those arrested got $50 tickets and authorities charged them with protesting without a permit. All were released.
In Texas next week, Sheehan and at least a dozen supporters are prepared to be arrested as they return to the makeshift campsite along the road leading to Bush’s ranch, where he is expected to spend the holiday.
“It is critical for our democracy that we continue to ask the same questions that Cindy Sheehan asked this summer: What is the noble cause for the war with Iraq, and at what point do we say enough bloodshed has happened?” Hadi Jawad, co-founder of the Crawford Peace House, said Tuesday.
Bush defends the decision to go into Iraq in 2003, citing the threat posed by Saddam Hussein. The president says troops will remain in Iraq as long as necessary.
Sheehan was not arrested during her 26-day vigil that coincided with Bush’s working vacation at his ranch just outside Crawford.
But dozens of residents in the rural area complained of noise and traffic congestion as the protesters pitched tents in shallow ditches about 2 miles away from the ranch. Some traffic was from counter protests of hundreds of Bush supporters who said Sheehan’s group was hurting troop morale.
A month later, McLennan County commissioners approved the new ordinances, which prohibit parking on parts of 14 roads near the ranch, roughly a 5-mile radius, and prohibit camping in any county ditch. The laws also ban portable toilets in ditches.
Wild Thing’s comment……
Send her to Gitmo until we can schedule her trial! Then when she goes to trial put her up in front of Judge Judy!
There is nothing lower on the food chain than those in the Democrat machine! She despises this country and has openly said so. She described her own son’s cowardly murderers as “freedom fighters.” She is a complete and utter scumbag who is delighted – DELIGHTED – that her son is dead. She didn’t like him and his death has given her the fame and access she has clearly always craved. Cindy Sheehan is among the worst moral monsters currently befouling this planet with her unwanted presence.

Bin Laden, the Taliban and Al Qaeda HATE this Man

Yes, not only do Bin Laden, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda hate anyone that is NON-Muslim but they have a special hate for Jack Idema. Because he is good at what he has been trained to do!


Jack Idema has spent a long time on many missions defending our freedom and our way of life. Isn’t it about time we got him out of this ridiculous mess he’s in when he was only doing the job he was sent over there to do? The job that he’s been trained for and that he’s so good at?
He is our best weapon against Bin Laden, the Taliban and Al Qaeda. This intelligence gathering he was doing was second to none. It’s the kind of intelligence that the FBI probably has wet dreams about.
Jack is a former member of the US Army Special Forces and is a Green Beret. He has operated for the US Government, and trained foreign counter-terrorist forces in Nicaragua against the Sandinistas, in El Salvador with the Ramon Bellosa Immediate Reaction Battalion against the FMLN terrorists, in East Germany and Europe against the Bader Meinhoff Gang, in Thailand with the Thai Special Warfare Command, in Haiti protecting the US Mission against dissidents, in the Middle East against Hezbollah, Hamas and Abu Nidal terrorists, in Lithuania against the OMON terrorists, and numerous other operational areas.
His Special Ops and SF background includes more than two dozen SF, Special Ops, police, counter-terrorist and classified courses and schools. He is an expert in counter-terrorism, intelligence asset development, and hostage-rescue, with more than 25 years’ experience in all of these. He’s currently employed by the Counter-Terrorist Group U.S. (CounTerr Group) as a CT Operator in a direct action capacity against international terrorism, specifically, Al Qaeda and related terrorist groups.
CounTerr, aka CounTerr Group, is an organization based in the US that leads counter-terrorism activites in support of US government initiatives. Counterr Group conducts training, organization, direct action, HUMINT, and advisory services to foreign and domestic agencies. Counterr Group has been in operation , in various forms, in various countries, for approximately 27 years. Counterr Group began deploying personnel to Afghanistan and other countries just weeks after 9/11 as part of the effort to combat Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda and other terrorist forces such as the Taliban. Counterr Group’s froeign operating group and CONUS personnel worked in conjunction with Commander Massoud’s Northern Alliance, which were primarily responsible for the liberation of Afghanistan with US Army Special Forces and Special Ops units.
We should allow him to do the work he was trained to do and get the hell out of his way. A man like this can only make the world safer from terrorism, and with his Northern Alliance Allies, he was doing the job. Until he was stopped. And demonized by the press, and victimized by the FBI and the DOS. This should also be investigated.
We should be complaining to our elected representatives about his situation and demand that it be rectified immediately.
They are being held at Pulacharke Prison because the American government has ordered it.
This must not stand.
He should be allowed to proceed with the Geneva Convention hearing!
They should be released from custody, they’ve been declared innocent by the Afghans, and have been recognized by the Afghans has having POW status.
There should be a congressional hearing as to what has happened with regard to these men, and the people involved should be held responsible.
Write your representatives.

Ambassador Khalizad is now Ambassador to Iraq. Judging from his questionable track record in Afghanistan, I don’t have a very high opinion of his work in Iraq, and now I have all kinds of questions as to what exactly we are accomplishing there, and under whose guiding influences.

We should make it clear that we know what has gone on here and that it’s an outrage and all men from TF Sabre/7 should be released, exhonerated, their names cleared. And we should be also pushing for a Congressional investigation as to who was involved, the how and the why. Nobody fighting in Afghanistan or Iraq should EVER have to worry about being hung out to dry like this by a government that is employing stalinist tactics and turning its back on all the freedoms and rights that have been provided and guaranteed us by our founding documents and old standards such as the Geneva Conventions. Are we to apply the Geneva Conventions to terrorists to whom these safeguards don’t apply and ignore them for our men in uniform for whom they were written???
If so, we’re setting ourselves up for FAILURE in this TERROR WAR.
This is the “Free Jack” campaign.
To join the campaign, email Cao from Cao’s blog and tell her you want to join the Free Jack Idema blogburst. You will be added to the blogroll and she’ll send you the html code to put up for that week in case you’re pressed for time and can’t put something together…or you can write your own.
We will be blogging on this every Wednesday until he and his team are released, and when they are, we’ll be blogging about a congressional hearing.
Cao will maintain an email list, and will email you the post of the week along with a picture (if there is one for that week) to host at your blog.
Join the fight. No American should ever have to worry about ending up in this predicament ever again. But first, we must make sure they get home safely and in one piece.
These are the blogs so far who are participating:

Clinton to Israel: “Put some ice on it”….

Bill Clinton to Israel: Iran No Threat
Article from NewsMax
Ex-president Bill Clinton urged Israelis over the weekend not to overreact to comments by newly elected Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad recommending that Israel be “wiped off the map.”
Speaking at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on Saturday, Clinton acknowledged that the remark was “outrageous,” but he cautioned that the Iranian leader was “not elected because of his hatred for Israel or the West.”
“He was elected because of the economic distress of ordinary Iranians, and which he promised to relieve by giving them financial assistance,” Clinton explained, according to the Jerusalem Post.
He warned Israel not to act unilaterally when reacting to terrorist threats, saying that “true peace and security can only come through principled compromise.”
Clinton urged Israelis to “organize their politics” so “their search for peace can continue” regardless of domestic policies.
On Oct. 27, President Ahmadinejad told a “World Without Zionism” conference that Israel is a “disgraceful blot” on the Middle East that should be “wiped off the map.”
Wild Thing’s comment………..
First of all we already know that Bill and Hillary are anti-semites!
Biographer Jerry Oppenheimer’s book STATE OF A UNION: INSIDE THE COMPLEX MARRIAGE OF BILL AND Hillary CLINTON …In one particularly shocking passage in the book, Oppenheimer quotes a campaign official who describes an angry attack by Hillary in which she screams at him, “You fucking Jew bastard!”
Two sourced eyewitnesses confirmed to Oppenheimer that they heard the verbal assault.
And who the hell wants to hear advice from the man who saw the ’93 bombing of the WTC, as just some silly crime, that should be handled by the N.Y.C. cops and then forgotten, who refused to take OBL, THRICE, when offered up on a silver platter, virtually ignored every scrap of evidence that terrorist/al Qaeda members were blowing up and killing people all over the world, ignored the warning about the bombing of the USS Cole, etc.
