PJMedia’s Richard Fernandez does nice summaries sometimes and this one on our suspected-but-highly-unlikely Muslim president is a gem: “The man has single handedly trashed the entire Arab world. Consider. The Muslim Brotherhood is hunted in Egypt, which is about to starve.. Libya is a Mad Max state. People are killing each other for all they [...]
PFC Cody Patterson, a young Army Ranger and a friend of Darkwater’s son, was one of four U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan recently, and Darkwater’s son escorted his remains home. But Cody’s family must now scrounge for the expenses to get him buried, thanks to Obutthead and his slim-down, shut-down kabuki. The Republican House passed [...]
“On December 7, 1941, the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor was attacked. Three years, eight months, and eight days later, the Japanese surrendered. These days, America’s military moves at a more leisurely pace. On November 5, 2009, another U.S. base, Fort Hood, was attacked — by one man standing on a table, screaming “Allahu [...]
These weenies and scumbags, mostly Democrat politicians, university academics (uniformly Democrats), and white-haired streetcorner panhandlers, were mostly draft dodgers in the 60s and 70s who now crave special status in our pathetic victim culture. So they cover themselves in the flag and pseudo-camo glory with bizarre tales of special operations, etc. And they come out [...]
Sudip Bose, friend of a friend, served in Iraq as an Army surgeon. Last time I spoke to him he was trying to get a book published about his experiences. But the book was too positive for the usual suspects of traditional publishing. Then, Sudip was an ER doc in Midland. He may still be [...]
Mark Steyn has it pretty succinct, the reason why I will try to discourage Mr. B. from following his father, grandfathers, and other ancestors in joining the American military. It lately seems more interested in slotting women into the infantry and decrying the dangers of global warming than training and fighting to win wars. “But [...]

This K-Max robot helicopter, which has no human crew, is doing resupply for Marines in Afghanistan. Up to 4,500 pounds worth. Yes, but will it do Medevac? Meanwhile, our drone-lovin’ president (like Slick Willie a natural-born killer when he can do it by remote control without endangering himself) is encouraging the use of drones over [...]
The soon-to-be-former defense secretary has decided that the military will get the smallest possible pay raise while King Putz has already submitted a fat hike for civilian federal employees. As Darkwater so eloquently quotes from Kipling: “God and the soldier we adore/In times of trouble, not before/When trouble’s gone and all things righted/God’s forgotten and [...]

“….the persecution of Christians in the Islamic world is on its way to reaching pandemic proportions…” Strange how we never hear much about this in our snooze media, which always falls into deep slumber with a Democrat in the White House. Or, for that matter, from American Christian pulpits. Oh, they’d much rather talk about [...]
