    My nephew, Nick, had a BBC newscast on about human smugglers in Thailand.  It appears that the BBC is a bit less shy about showing weapons than many U.S. outlets, but that could simply be perception on this one show.  I watch very little TV.    From BBC.com: Manit told us his district had long been used by human traffickers to transfer migrants from boats to trucks. He wanted to stamp it out. But he was getting little help from the central government, or from local law enforcement.  The BBC correspondent was allowed to join a patrol off the coast. ...

    When Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was traded for five high risk Taliban commanders last summer, his platoon mates quickly hit the airwaves to expose him as a deserter. They said it was known he was a deserter for years. The Obama administration, however, gave the appearance to the American people that officials were unaware of the circumstances surrounding his capture. In fact, last year State Department Deputy Spokeswoman Marie Harf said allegations Bergdahl deserted were simply "rumors." Not only did President Obama hold a Rose Garden ceremony to honor Bergdahl, but administration officials Jay Carney and Susan Rice said he...

    I found the photo of Al Shabab marching, presumably somewhere in Somalia, interesting.  It gives a clear look at some of their weaponry.  As an organization that deals in terror, I would expect it to be extremely conscious of the image that it puts forth.   This likely explains the preponderance of  PKM light machine guns in the hands of the four rightward ranks of the front marchers (their right). These are probably the most powerful weapons that are carried on foot by Al Shabab.  I only see those four, and it appears that other troops are equipped with AK...

    The detail hindsight forgets, and the fiction murky memories create We’ve been coming back to the Iraq War lately for two reasons. One is that the media keep bringing it up in the form of a knowing-what-we-know-now gotcha question aimed at Republican presidential candidates (although they offer no such question to Hillary Clinton concerning the 2011 withdrawl of all U.S. troops . . . not that she would answer). The other, more pertinent reason, is that ISIS is overrunning Iraq at the moment, taking advantage of the absence of a residual U.S. force and Barack Obama’s refusal to wage a...

    Flopping Aces ^ | 05-26-15 | Warren Beatty
    Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama referred to ISIS as "jayvee" ("junior varsity") in January 2014. Then in September 2014, he said about ISIS in Syria: "We don't have a strategy yet." ISIS just took Rahmadi, and continued east, attacking the town of Khaldiya and breaking the Iraqi government's line of defense in Husayba, about 20 miles west of Baghdad. ISIS also captured the Syrian city of Palmyra. Obama’s ISIS "strategy" is being scrutinized after recent setbacks. Even the ultra-liberal Los Angeles Times ran an Op-Ed entitled "Obama has a strategy for fighting ISIS -- one that isn't working". Now Obama...

    That'll show 'em. MSNBC has a new show! It’s hosted by former Pennsylvania Representative Patrick Murphy (D-of course). It’s called “Taking the Hill” and this weekend it featured an appearance by everyone’s favorite former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Murphy asked Pelosi about Obama’s failing battle against ISIS, but Pelosi wasn’t interested in admitting that things aren’t going so well. Instead, she decided to highlight one of the areas where we are, apparently, making some truly “impressive advances” against our barbaric opponents. Are we bombing them back into the stone age? Not really. Are we killing them at a...

    And that's just the start; getting approval to bomb a target can take hours You’d think it would represent a major blow to ISIS if you could take out its headquarters - and apparently U.S. forces know exactly where ISIS headquarters is located. Specifically we’re talking about seven buildings in Raqqa, Syria. Furthermore, you’d think that if you had a shot at thousands of ISIS terrorists - the very ones who just took Ramadi and were running around in the open flaunting it - you’d take them out. You’d think that, but you’d be wrong, at least according to the...

    Nothing speaks more to the blatant ignorance of liberalism than to hear radical leftists belittle our country and military on a national day of mourning and remembrance. Believe it or not, most conservatives despise war – view its necessity as an absolute last resort – for we too have fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters. By that same token, right-minded Americans simply refuse to bury their heads in the sand and pretend evil does not exist in order to magically appease our innate desire for global harmony. Whether a Christian is beheaded in Syria or your neighbor...

    Why Ramadi matters: The fall of Ramadi is highly symbolic and of substantial strategic significance, despite the protestations to the contrary of Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey. In a joint press conference with Defense Secretary Ashton Carter on April 16, Dempsey stated: "The city itself is not symbolic is any way. It's not been declared part of the (Islamic State) caliphate or central to the future of Iraq, but we want to get it back. The issue here is not brick and mortar, it's about defeating ISIL." In fact, Ramadi is considered by ISIS...

Fact is, the so-called air war against ISIS is a fraud “The Cemetery of the Americans.” That’s what graffiti said in the western Iraq city of Ramadi when I first embedded there in 2006. Indeed, my two journalist predecessors in Camp Corregidor were both shot be snipers. Within weeks the first SEAL to die in Iraq would be killed, another mortally wounded. My own Public Affairs officer was killed, and later the first SEAL to win the Medal of Honor in Iraq would die there. It was the hardest-fought battle of...

Love is the saluted soul of their service, the intrinsic calling of a sacred duty, and the billowing breath of an enduring creed. Love of country, family, and most of all, love of liberty – God’s most precious and nonnegotiable gift – moves ordinary men and women to confront the most unconscionable forms of evil, to stand guard in the growing shadow of...

Profits which mean the shareholders of America's arms manufacturers get even richer. Which is why following months of middle-eastern sabre ratling and numerous quasi-wars already raging in the region, moments ago the U.S. State Department approved the sale of 10 MH-60R Seahawk helicopters to Saudi Arabia for $1.9 billion, the first step in "a major multibillion-dollar modernization of the Saudi...

On their return home, several pilots were shot down by the Luftwaffe, while many of those escaping were killed. These are the histories of bravery clashing with ideologies the like of Hitler.

Please join those signatories who have already chosen to make the duty of an American president clear to Barack Obama....

    Obama’s is a fairytale world of golfing, partying and holidaying while guaranteeing that the life of the masses will be an every day nightmare President Barack Obama’s attempts to provide cover for Islamic terrorists by first declaring global warming/climate change “a national security threat” and then excusing their ongoing carnage with the absurd claim that it was global warming that set them off, must be the biggest political scam in all of human history. It was supposedly feeling the ravages of climate change that set Islamic terrorism on a worldwide rampage? How do the mainstream media, Obama’s so-called political opponents...

    Or maybe Obama, Hillary, McCain,  or Lindsey Graham could do some splainin'...? I'm no huge Bush fan in general, but am pretty damn sick of hearing the historical re-inventions lately re. how going into Iraq was always a failure, etc... like The Surge never happened- how Obama was 'handed a mess', blah blah blah...  Mark Levin recently noted this new 'progressive' push against reality, one likely intended to shield Obama/Dems from the outright disaster they've created in Iraq and 'The Levant'. The truth is, Barack Obama was handed a stable Iraq... then promptly dropped the reigns and walked away. And...

    We still have thousands upon thousands of war-injured and impoverished homeless Veterans and they need your help to speak out in their behalf Fellow Veterans and Friends of Veterans When the Plaintiffs and Defendants jointly announced the so-called “settlement agreement,” the lead spokesman for the Plaintiffs called it “a good deal” and I called it a “Trojan Horse.” The lawyers for both the Plaintiffs and Defendants said “trust us.” Well, we trusted them and the settlement is proving to be a very bad deal for Veterans as the “Trojan Horse” has taken over and it is a very good deal...

    Lawfare Blog: Following an American special forces raid on the compound of Islamic State operative Abu Sayyaf, U.S. interrogators, who are part of the High Value Detainee Interrogation Group, have flown to Iraq in order to question Umm Sayyaf, the wife of Abu Sayyaf, who was taken during the operation. Umm Sayyaf was allegedly involved in the workings of the Islamic State and could possibly have played a role in “the enslavement of women in Iraq and Syria.” U.S. interrogators plan to talk to Umm Sayyaf about U.S. hostages held by the militant group. However, according to the Washington Post,...

    Potential candidate for president and former Governor of Florida JEB Bush told FOX News’ Megyn Kelly that “unlike some other GOP presidential contenders, I would not move to immediately undo President Obama’s executive action granting special privileges to illegal immigrants. Instead, I would refuse to revoke it until Congress passed appropriate enabling legislation. In any case, the American voter can count on me to see that legalizing those in this country illegally will go forward with or without legislation.” Bush acknowledged the shaky legality of Obama’s executive action, but averred that “doing the right thing is more important than confining...

    Former CIA Director Michael Morell’s account of what happened during the September 2012 terror attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi has been debunked by a Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report, a security contractor, and other sources. Breitbart News spoke with former Army Ranger Kris “Tanto” Paronto, one of the elite security contractors on the ground hired by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), about Morell’s description of what happened on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi. Paronto told Breitbart News that former acting CIA Director Michael Morell blatantly lied when describing the Benghazi attack in an article for Politico Magazine. Specifically,...

    How arms got into ISIS jihadists' hands--with Clinton and Obama's full knowledge The shameless lying that has formed the heart of the Obama administration’s Benghazi narrative took another turn yesterday. Documents obtained by Fox News reveal that U.S. intelligence agencies were “fully aware” weapons were being moved from Benghazi to Syria before the attack on Sept. 11, 2012, that claimed the lives of ambassador Christopher Stevens,Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, and diplomat Sean Smith. The documents also put the lie to President Obama’s assertion that the rise of ISIS caught the administration “by surprise.” “Newly released documents show...

    Sen. Ted Cruz is asking lawmakers to consider allowing troops to carry personal firearms on base for protection, reviving a fight that has previously been a nonstarter with Congress after military leaders said they didn't support the change. While many lawmakers are open to having a discussion on changing the rules in the Senate Committee on Armed Services, most said that they would defer issues of base security to military leaders — who have historically been against allowing concealed carry on their posts. Mr. Cruz formally sent a letter last month to Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican and chairman of...

    Who created ISIS? Was it Jeb Bush's brother? (Shout out to Rob Lowe- Thank you!). Can it be traced back to CIA overthrow in 1953 of Mossadeq? Jimmy Carter's lack of leadership support for the Shah in 1979? Is it due to our support of the Saudi royals and other secular Muslim dictators? Or our abandonment of them in wake of the Arab Spring? Did it all start with Reagan and the CIA (war in Afghanistan and CIA support for the Mujahadeen against the Soviets)? Was OBL a CIA creation? Did the U.S. create Saddam? After all, there's that famous...

    Paul Krugman: Thanks to Jeb Bush, we may finally have the frank discussion of the Iraq invasion we should have had a decade ago. But many influential people — not just Mr. Bush — would prefer that we not have that discussion. There’s a palpable sense right now of the political and media elite trying to draw a line under the subject. Yes, the narrative goes, we now know that invading Iraq was a terrible mistake, and it’s about time that everyone admits it. Now let’s move on. Well, let’s not — because that’s a false narrative, and everyone who...

    Ramadi, a crucial city in the Anbar province and a strategic part of the gateway to Baghdad Even as U.S. Special Forces had just taken out a major ISIS commander in Syria, the people of Ramadi have now become the latest witnesses to what happens when the United States fights a battle in a half-hearted manner. We lose, and when the enemy is a sadistic group of monsters like ISIS, our allies pay a horrifically high price. Reports overnight are that Ramadi, a crucial city in the Anbar province and a strategic part of the gateway to Baghdad, has now...
