Killing Russians As Revenge for Viet Nam

charlie_wilsons_war

Two weeks ago in a discussion with my Lion friends the subject of Charley Wilson’s War came up. I remembered seeing a movie by that name, but could not remember what it was about. Two days later my friend Rod dropped off a book with the same title. I finished reading the story today, and feel compelled to express myself about it. Before I do I have to say that the reason I couldn’t remember what the story was about from watching the movie is because the story is way too big to cover in a two hour movie. The producers chose to concentrate on Charley’s womanizing and his relationship with a specific CIA agent named Gust Avrakotos. Both Wilson’s womanizing and Gust’s CIA association are major parts of the story, but their involvement in driving the Soviet Union out of Afghanistan and the eventual downfall of the USSR was complicated and confusing in the film.

Here is my opinion. All presidents from George Bush the second and every president after him should read this piece of history. Had Bush absorbed the message of Jihad played out in the story he would have thought three times before declaring war on Afghanistan. In Obama’s case it is worse. He is a muslim sympathizer yet he fails to recognize the drive and fervor of jihad. His foreign policy regarding muslim nations would have to be different if he understood the message of this book.

The Russians spent billions under the guise of liberating Afghanistan, but they really wanted to own Afghanistan and to open a path to the Indian Ocean. They lost 28,000 young men, and their engagement is compared to our Viet Nam. They killed over a million muslim jihadists, and they might have won had the CIA not gotten involved.

What was the message I got? That muslims on a jihad are crazy zealots for revenge and for driving infidels from their countries. Almost as soon as the door hit the last Russian in the ass as he left Afghanistan, the mujahideen shifted to the USA as their new enemy. It hasn’t stopped since then, and we all know that things are not getting better.

This book is an interesting and enjoyable read. The history covered is relatively obscure because the USA, namely the CIA kept it so covert that neither the Afghans or the Russians knew we were involved.

The second thing I got from the book is that a single Congressman with abilities similar to those of Charles Wilson who wanted revenge for the Russian involvement in Viet Nam against us could appropriate so much money for a program that was never approved by Congress, or the President. In my opinion Charley Wilson was a hero  for bringing down the Russians, but he should be in jail for how he went about doing it. The reason he never went to jail is that he had too many other Congressmen in his pocket.

In retrospect, what Charley Wilson did amounts to peanuts compared to what Obama does daily in the name of redistributing wealth.

A Letter to the Commander in Chief

This article is reposted from the Weasel Zippers website:

We embrace heroes in America. Senior Airman Brian Kolfage defines hero: the triple-amputee veteran of the Iraqi War overcame insurmountable odds to survive his horrific injuries. Kolfage recently sent a powerful – and damning – letter to his commander-in-chief:

“I nearly died in a war that you and most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it’s something that warriors like myself have zero control over. I joined to serve my country and to better my life. I’ve seen things that you could never imagine, and they have made me the person I am today. . . .”

A  National memorial commemorating the Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars has not yet been established, let us honor these brave military people for their service as well, and all lessor war skirmishes that our country fought in.

This video says what is in my heart. I salute every veteran who has protected me and my family since World War II. I owe you all a debt of gratitude.

Unhappy, Unhappy, Happy, Back to Unhappy

The Happy People

My good buddy Jim from high school and college days sent me this, and I am still laughing. I am an Islamaphobic so this rings my bell with truth. If you are the sensitive type or a liberal don’t read any further, but you will miss a piece of wisdom that may open your mind.

THE MUSLIMS ARE NOT HAPPY!
They’re not happy in Gaza ..
They’re not happy in Egypt ..
They’re not happy in Libya .
They’re not happy in Morocco ..
They’re not happy in Iran …
They’re not happy in Iraq ..
They’re not happy in Yemen …
They’re not happy in Afghanistan .
They’re not happy in Pakistan ..
They’re not happy in Syria ..
They’re not happy in Lebanon ..
SO, WHERE ARE THEY HAPPY?
They’re happy in Australia .
They’re happy in Canada .
They’re happy in England ..
They’re happy in France ..
They’re happy in Italy ..
They’re happy in Germany .
They’re happy in Sweden ..
They’re happy in the USA ..
They’re happy in Norway ..
They’re happy in Holland .
They’re happy in Denmark .
Basically, they’re happy in every country that is
not Muslim and unhappy in every country that is!
AND WHO DO THEY BLAME?
Not Islam.
Not their leadership.
Not themselves.
THEY BLAME THE COUNTRIES THEY ARE HAPPY IN!
AND THEN; They want to change those countries into
THE COUNTRY THEY CAME FROM WHERE THEY WERE UNHAPPY!
Excuse me, but I cannot help wondering…
How damn dumb can you get?
Everyone wonders why Muslim
Terrorists are so quick to commit suicide.
So, let’s have a look at what the probable causes might be:
– No Christmas
– No television
– No hot women
– No football
– No pork chops
– No hot dogs
– No burgers
– No beer
– No booze
– No bacon
– Rags for clothes
– Towels or tablecloths for hats
– Constant wailing / howling from some Muslim in a tower!
– More than one wife
– More than one mother in law
– You can’t shave
– Your wife can’t shave
– You can’t wash off the smell of donkey
– You cook over burning camel shit
– Someone picks your wife for you
– and she smells worse than your donkey
Then they tell you that “when
you die it all gets better”?? ?
Well no shit Sherlock!…
It’s not like it could get much worse!

Who Has Some Toilet Paper?

img005

There are well over twelve million people in the US who are unemployed today. They have trouble existing. Many probably work two, or three, part-time jobs to eek a living. Others, are starving. The Federal government however, has no concept of what that kind of hardship really is. I did a little math and divided the total number of federal workers classified as Executive, (2,756,000) by their average salary of $76231/yrs. If the entire sequester cut went toward laying off  these people only, Obama would have to lay off 1,115,030 people. That is a huge number, yet it is only nine percent of the total private sector people who are suffering without work.

It is my opinion that if these nine percent were to feel the pain, the business climate would improve to the point where the twelve million private sector people  would find good jobs. Would you sacrifice the nine percent to put twelve million back to work? Take the poll below and let me know how you feel.

The news item below is a comment made by a lady who has some insight into what is happening inside the services to make them feel the full impact and pain of the sequester. Click on her name to take you to the news article she commented on.

“I’m from a military family still living in a military community with daily contact with numerous active duty friends. Here’s what’s happening that’s not being reported. Soldiers on deployment are no longer receiving hot meals (haven’t for a while now), service members going through basic training are running out of TOILET PAPER (wonder if soldiers in Afghanistan have any or if it’s only what they are getting from loved ones guess that’d better be included in the next care package). Friends who recently met seamen who had just graduated from boot camp were told of them not having toilet paper in their barracks the last 2 weeks of training. Yet Obama still plays golf and his wife still takes numerous vacations on the taxpayer dime because apparently he’s working SOOOOOOO hard that he needs to take at least 4 vacations a year plus play golf every week. After all putting out a budget is enough to give anyone a headache so they’d need a break, Oh wait he’s never put out a budget! EPIC FAIL AMERICA!”

Free Phone Fiasco

Where in the heck do these people learn about these loop holes? I saw a news article about Obama-phones, but I never studied it any further. Evidently, there is a deep-rooted wish to give the poor a phone to dial 911. The original program gave poor people a free landline phone. The libs soon learned their clientele do not have permanent homes. It is hard to install a land line in a cardboard box or a stolen shopping cart.  Their solution was to add cell phones into the program. Evidently, the law is wide open to interpretation. Rumor also has it that one of the service providers is a crony of the President’s. That really isn’t relevant except that the more phones a provider has signed up the more money he makes. It is the redistribution thing at work. (A concept borrowed directly from Atlas Shrugged.)

Here is another thought to ponder. How many of these free Obama-phones get into the hands of Muslims who send them to Afghanistan for use as Improvised Explosive Device triggers?

I would not know where to go, who to ask, or what the qualifications are to get a free cell phone, do you? Yet, according to the news report in the video below there is a huge number of people who already abuse the program. The result is we, the paying cell phone user, are suffering the cost. If this doesn’t deserve a letter to your congressman nothing does. This issue is a no-brainer to shut off, but it is my guess that Congress will not repeal the bill. Why? Because the dumb-ass Congressmen don’t have the cojones to do anything to upset a vocal minority. Another reason, is that they look upon this program as a drop-in-the-bucket of the trillion-dollar deficit. Therefore, the effect of eliminating Obama-phones is insignificant, and not worth their precious time taken from reading/writing twenty-two hundred page bills. These same people probably won’t bend to pick up a penny from the street. I do, in my way of thinking I only have to pick up ninety-nine more to have a dollar.
