Don't you just love the new MOAB?
I think it says it all quite well. Despite the constant calls for surrender by the Democrats, the troops held firm, and we've now pretty much won the war. All we're doing now is mopping up and making sure the new Iraqi Army is trained well enough to take over when we leave.
But maybe we're going to have to start checking to see if our own Department of Homeland Security is spying on us as we gather every Friday outside the main entrance of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC.
That's about the impression you'd get after reading the infamous DHS report Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment. Given how vague the report is, completely lacking in specifics, I guess everyone on the right should be worried.
From page 6
(U) Perceived Threat from Rise of Other Countries
(U//FOUO) Rightwing extremist paranoia of foreign regimes could escalate or be magnified in the event of an economic crisis or military confrontation, harkening back to the "New World Order" conspiracy theories of the 1990s. The dissolution of Communist countries in Eastern Europe and the end of the Soviet Union in the 1990s led some rightwing extremists to believe that a "New World Order" would bring about a world government that would usurp the sovereignty of the United States and its Constitution, thus infringing upon their liberty. The dynamics in 2009 are somewhat similar, as other countries, including China, India, and Russia, as well as some smaller, oil-producing states, are experiencing a rise in economic power and influence.
Got it, mustn't worry about Harold Koh, Dawn Johnson, and transnationalism...
Maybe DHS thinks that the numerous troopers, such as the lady soldier in the photo below, who come out to visit us, are really looking to join a militia gang. Here is the infamous section from page 7:
(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the potential to boost the capabilities of extremists--including lone wolves or small terrorist cells--to carry out violence. The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today.
Every day we have a new insult to our country from President Obama, and this is one of the worst.
Honor Roll of Attendees: Cindy-True-Supporter, Fraxinus, Mr & Mrs Trooprally, Kburi, PleaDeal, Jimmy Valentine's Brother, RonGKirby, Lurker Bill, and your author Tom the Redhunter
Actually it's this bunch I think we ought to keep an eye on
One Evening Is All We Ask
The weather this time of year is fantastic, we always set up a table full of food and drink in the parking lot, and just make a picnic out of the evening. We regulars can't make it every Friday, and we need all local FReepers to please take one evening this summer and come out and be with us. 'Nuff said there.
What It's All About
Here come the troops!
We owe them so much
Please also FReepmail them or any of us if you would like to join us at Walter Reed and would like additional information about parking, directions, what to bring, etc.
Come join us every Friday night between the hours of 6:30pm to approx 9:30pm.

Good one Tom.
and you connected the dots just right.
Thanks Tom...see you soon! Well, JUNE.
Extremely extreme extremist bump!
Great picture with Ron G!
I wonder why DHS thinks that the people who had spent months enduring hardship away from their loved ones protecting their country would come home and attack it? Is some sort of projection going on?
I’m sure the file on me file on me is at least a gigabyte of data.
One more thing, That is one mother of a beautifaul MOAB!
They probably helped write the paranoid tripe that Napolitano put in her report.
I am so proud of all you FReepers who get the chance to do this every weeks!! :*) And I’m even more proud of our troops!! They don’t deserve the besmirching this adnministration is giving them, and I can’t wait for REAL conservatives in the White House rectifying all these horrible things HolyO and his cronies have done!!
Keep up the good work! Sure wish I could join you all!!
So pathetic how they prop up their signs on that low wall because they only have a few wackos to hold signs.
The real pathetic part is that the moonbats are using Walter Reed property to lean their sign against.
