You know what? Eff you CNN. In reporting the story of the death of a U.S. Special forces member, CNN has seen it to be fit to offer the story in Arabic.

Read a version of this story in Arabic.

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — An elite U.S. special forces team rescued an American doctor who had been abducted in Afghanistan, but lost one of their own members in the mission, officials said.

Pardon us a moment while we go puke. Here is the link – http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/09/world/asia/afghanistan-taliban-rescue/index.html?hpt=hp_t3

Arabic, flipping Arabic. CNN is based in the good old USA, owned by its parent company Time Warner and a division of Turner Broadcasting and where the vast majority of us speak and read English. You want it translated- go use google translate or one of the zillion other places on the web that will translate it for you. For CNN to add a link for a translation in Arabic is appalling. Why not a translation into German, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, etc. What? Doesn’t the rest of freaking world want to read the story too? An American soldier is dead and his story is being shared specifically in Arabic. Despicable.

It’s the New World Order in America, it pisses us off and is evidence of the Islamization of America. You want to be a Muslim in America fine, that’s up to you but here we don’t press #1 for English.

Yet.

It’s not that we hate Muslims, oh no- we hate Sharia Law and people and politicians who dance around it’s invasion of America in the name of political correctness. Take a look at France, Egypt, and many other places where Catholic & Christian churches are attacked mainly by Muslim Extremists. Eff that.

The doctor, Dilip Joseph and two other captives were there on behalf of Morning Star Development. He serves as it’s medical advisor. MorningStar Publications and Ministries is a diverse and expanding international ministry founded by Rick and Julie Joyner in 1985.

The Goal of Islam

Kamal Saleem

Rick Joyner
Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Today on Prophetic Perspectives Rick Joyner is joined by special guest, Kamal Saleem. Kamal Saleem is a former Muslim terrorist who became a Christian through the faithful love and support of believers after a terrible car accident. “Today, Kamal Saleem educates state and federal political leaders, military leaders, intelligence specialists, security officials and contractors, law enforcement agencies, foundations, non-profits, churches, synagogues, universities, military academies and receptive Muslim audiences on what he knows of the deadly enemy without – and the cancerous enemy within.” http://www.morningstartv.com/prophetic-perspective-current-events/goal-islam

Basically a group of stupid, unarmed Christians were in Afghanistan working at a rural medical clinic in eastern Kabul and got abducted by a group of armed men, also know as Taliban- followers of Sharia and CNN offers the story in Arabic. Because you know what? America is under Sharia attack and better wake the eff up when the U.S. main stream media reports in Arabic.

“He gave his life for his fellow Americans, and he and his teammates remind us once more of the selfless service that allows our nation to stay strong, safe and free,” President Barack Obama said of the slain U.S. service member, who was not immediately identified.

What does Morning Star have to say about it?

Despite the kidnappings of Joseph and its two other staffers, Morning Star reiterated its “commitment to continue its work” in Afghanistan.

You know what? Eff you too Morning Star. Go hire a military contractor to protect your ass. We hope the least Morning Star can do is to provide some financial help to the family of the dead Navy Seal. Although, personally we’d tell them to shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.

We say a prayer for the dead soldier and America, a sigh of relief for the rescued man, and will avoid CNN.

End rant. December 10, 2012.
Post rant-SEAL member id is-

Petty Officer 1st Class Nicolas D. Checque, 28, of Monroeville, Pennsylvania, USA

Stay tuned and have a good day, one day it will be your last. God Bless.

The National Guard is headed for the Mexican U.S. border.http://www.nationalguard.com/  President Obama in his infinite wisdom or, from reading the Nation’s leading poll’s supporting Arizona’s immigration law( http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll ) is sending troops.  It is not so obvious that it is for immigration control, as the Mexican Embassy point out that troops will be on guard against the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.

In a statement from Embassy of Mexico – http://portal.sre.gob.mx/usa/index.php?option=news&task=viewarticle&sid=297

Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard servicemen to the US Southern border, the Government of Mexico trusts that this decision will help to channel additional US resources to enhance efforts to prevent the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.

Additionally, the Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.

Mexico is determined to continue working on its side of the border to enhance the security and well-being of border communities, and to deter and dismantle organized crime and its links to drug trafficking and human smuggling.

As part of our joint strategy in the fight against transnational organized crime, there are actions that our two governments have undertaken together, and there are other measures taken independently by Mexico and by the US within their respective territories. In this regard, the Mexican Government fully respects the sovereign decisions of the US Government, but underscores that joint responsibility must continue to underpin our joint efforts in rolling-back transnational organized crime operating on both sides of the border.

As the commander-in-chief, I believe he is supposed to be in charge of the Nation’s Military, not states National Guard troops.  Others are of the same opinion:

“There is no modern precedent for Congress to direct the president to deploy troops in the manner sought by the Amendment,” National Security Adviser James Jones and Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser John Brennan wrote to Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) 

“It represents unwarranted interference with the Commander-in-Chief’s responsibilities to direct the employment of our Armed Forces and thus infringes on the President’s role in the management of the Total Force,” they wrote. Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0510/37759.html#ixzz0p2l86o32

USARNORTH conducts Homeland Defense and Civil Support operations, and Theater Security Cooperation activities, as the U.S. Northern Command Joint Force Land Component Command and the Army Service Component Command in order to protect the American people and their way of life.

We have U.S. Servicemen and women on active duty on U.S. soil in violation of Posse Comitatus. If we are breaking protocol anyway, why not get it over with and send the military to secure the border with Mexico? “…to protect the American people and their way of life!”

The Joint Task Force Civil Service mission statement, http://www.jtfcs.northcom.mil/  reads:

JTF-CS anticipates, plans and integrates USNORTHCOM chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive (CBRNE) consequence management operations, and when directed, establishes command and control of DOD forces in response to a CBRNE incident to assist local authorities in saving lives, preventing further injury and providing temporary critical support.

As much as I am against active duty troops on our soil, if they are going to be here, then utilize them here.  Don’t wait for another terrorist act to occur.  Post 9-11, the security of our nation remains at risk.  JTF-CS if so ordered would restore at least some sanity to our border, while of course pissing Mexico off.  Tough.  Rumor has it that there are plenty of Russian troops on U.S Soil, perhaps they’d lend a hand too. http://www.resistnet.com/forum/topics/alert-russian-troops-in-us-for

Our borders are being overwhelmed by Mexican people crossing into the greatest country on earth, illegally.  We are fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  North Korea and South Korea are playing a deadly game of tit for tat, and China’ aggression towards the U.S. has been pretty clear while it remains our largest debt holder.  Oil is spilling by thousand’s of gallons every day. 

Where is our commander-in-chief?

Obama will travel from Washington to Chicago on Thursday for a long weekend with his family, as planned. From there, he will go to Louisiana on Friday and return to Chicago that evening. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hIfwUDeBxbANKX2GATS6YOiMTnJQD9FU1EK00  excellent commentary on the President’s movement and decisions can be found at http://thisweekwithbarackobama.blogspot.com/.  The President’s minute by minute location also with commentary can be found at http://www.politico.com/politico44/

Besides the multiple crisis we are battling, this weekend is Memorial Day, the day we honor our nation’s dead military personnel.  The president previously confused Memorial Day with Veteran’s Day. “Someone might want to explain to the President that it is a little difficult to say “thank you” or send care packages to the deceased.” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2257872/posts 

On Monday, Obama is scheduled to participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Ill.   In Obama’s absence, Vice President Joe Biden will participate in the customary wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington. 

Obama will however make it back to Washington in time next week to honor Paul McCartney, who has sacrificed so much for the freedoms we enjoy notes Michelle Malkin. http://michellemalkin.com/2010/05/25/ap-obama-to-skip-arlington-memorial/

Obama may be President, even though he still has not provided a birth certificate proving he is eligible. Still, it is pretty un-American for The President to not lay the traditional wreath at Arlington Cemetary.  What can you expect from the man who couldn’t bother to put his hand on his heart during  The Pledge of Allegiance?

CNN is not reporting that President Obama’s poll numbers are dropping into negative territory, but Rasmussen is.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 25% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -16. That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll
 
The love affair with “That One,” seems to be ending.  The vision of Hope and Change he campaigned on, did not allude to emptying the change out of every citizen’s pocketbook.  President Obama’s negative numbers are like so many Americans personal finances- heading into negative territory and debt.
 
Rasmussen went on to say:
 
Most voters think health care reform is something the federal government should be addressing, but they don’t like the plan that’s working its way through Congress. In fact, only 41% support it now, marking the lowest extended period of support for the plan yet.   But President Obama and the Democrats who control Congress are pushing ahead on the unpopular health care legislation anyway. 
 
The price of freedom isn’t free.  It is not an alienable right in America that a citizen gets necessities for free, and certainly not forever.  America was not founded upon being a welfare state, but that is exactly what we are becoming.  One thing you can’t call Obama, is a liar.  In conversation with Joe The Plumber, he told us exactly what his intentions were- to share the wealth, take us down a path to socialism and into a new world order.
 
CNN and the networks remain faithful in the love affair with the President.  He did just receive the Nobel Peace Prize, negotiate (without congressional authority I might add) a deal at the U.N. Climate Change meeting in Copenhagen, a speech on the economy pre-empting Charlie Brown, and reiterated our commitment to Afghanistan by offering another 30,000 U.S. troops. 
 
With so much accomplished in one week, wouldn’t you think the trending numbers would be skyrocketing in his approval rating?  What is bad for the President is apparently good for Fox News.  Fox is seeing huge increase in ratings because many Americans do not like how, and where the President is leading the nation.   Are so many Americans coming to think like Rush Limbaugh in that they want him to fail so he will not be re-elected?  How will  this bode for the Republicans and conservatives next year?  
   
Lookup fellowship wrote:
 
Their is gross incompetence at the highest levels of government and our elected officials on both sides of the aisle aren’t doing the job we hired them to do. I also need to point out that I’m not promoting some type of carefree attitude either where you just throw your hands up in the sky and never get involved in politics. I’m simply suggesting that we need to take a step back and see government, politics, and the political debate for what it truly is an extension of the spiritual realm disguised as an entirely earthly body.http://www.lookupfellowship.com/2009/11/now-playing-order-out-of-chaos.html  
Voters were misled that Obama, “That One,” was the One to lead us towards solving not only America but the world’s problem.  He is no Messiah, and heaven forbid if the current health care reform bill passes.  Likely, there are more words in it than in the Bible.  The Bible being the best selling book on earth is also the one book that most people have never read and like the bill, most won’t read every word of it either.
 
Thinking about the Bible, it would appear God’s polling numbers are up.  For most Americans, the December holiday season is the most wonderful time of the year.  According to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 52% consider the holidays joyous, a five-point jump in joy since last year at this time.
 
The vast majority (86%) of Americans say they will be celebrating Christmas this year. Four percent (4%) will observe Hanukkah, three percent (3%) will celebrate Winter Solstice or Yule, and one percent (1%) will take part in some other religious observance. 
 
 In the meantime, The White House will be mailing Holiday Cards, rather than Christmas Cards. 

I wonder if anyone at the White House will remember these images for use in the holiday cards from the leader of the free world, and current resident at the White House?

chicago attack
In practicing for terror exercises over Chicago, is Falcon Virgo 09-Windy City-One, a red flag warning that there could be an immanent attack?  Could Sears Tower, now called Willis Tower as of last week, be the next catastrophic terrorist attack on U.S. Soil?  Willis Group Holdings, a London-based insurance broker is the new owner http://www.willistower.com/– will they be the  next 9/11 or the 9/11-2b?   The zip code of the Sears- er, Willis Tower is 60606- 666!  I still hear Joe Biden’s warning that in the next 6 months America and President Obama will be tested. 

 
“TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – The North American Aerospace Defense Command and its geographical component, the Continental United States NORAD Region (CONR), will conduct a one-day exercise, Falcon Virgo 09-Windy City-One, July 21 in Chicago. “The exercise comprises a series of training flights held in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration, Chicago Air Route Traffic Control Center, Chicago Terminal Radar Approach Control, the Continental U.S. NORAD Region, Customs and Border Protection and CORN’s Eastern Air Defense.” Sector” http://www.norad.mil/News/2009/072009.html
 
Since Sept. 11, 2001, NORAD fighters have responded to more than 2,100 possible air threats in the United States and have flown more than 51,000 sorties.  51,000 sorties  in 8 years?   Ummm that works out …….8 years times 52 weeks in a year equals a total of 416 weeks-  times 7 days in a week, equals 2,912 days.  Take those 51,000 sorties divided by the 2912 days and you get an average of 17.5 sorties flown every single day since 9-11.  Holy shit, batman.  Yet, we need more practice?
 
Tuning in my antennae, military exercises were operational leading up to the events of September 11, 2001.  One 9/11 Report, NORAD Exercises Hijack Summary http://www.scribd.com/doc/16411947/NORAD-Exercises-Hijack-Summary  simulated aircraft hijackings by terrorists over NYC.  HistoryCommons.org also hosts Timelines of entities and events, based on mainstream sources- the National Archives’ 9/11 Commission records are uploaded here for the Complete 9/11 Timeline http://www.scribd.com/HistoryCommons
 
The military unit most involved in the exercises leading to 9/11, Vigilant Guardian was NORAD’s Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS).  The imaginary scenario and exercises played out in reality days later. Labeling it a failed emergency response on the day of the attacks, is to put it mildly. 
 
“For the NEADS crew, 9/11 was not a story of four hijacked airplanes, but one of a heated chase after more than a dozen potential hijackings—some real, some phantom—that emerged from the turbulence of misinformation that spiked in the first 100 minutes of the attack and continued well into the afternoon and evening,” wrote Vanity Fair Magazine.  Asking, “How did the U.S. Air Force respond on 9/11? Could it have shot down United 93, as conspiracy theorists claim? Obtaining 30 hours of never-before-released tapes from the control room of NORAD’s Northeast head-quarters, the author reconstructs the chaotic military history of that day—and the Pentagon’s apparent attempt to cover it up.
 
Paragraph #1680, page 346
“The North American Aerospace Defense Command imagined the possible use of aircraft as weapons, too, and developed exercises to counter such a threat—from planes coming to the United States from overseas, perhaps carrying a weapon of mass destruction. None of this speculation was based on actual intelligence of such a threat. One idea, intended to test command and control plans and NORAD’s readiness, postulated a hijacked airliner coming from overseas and crashing into the Pentagon. The idea was put aside in the early planning of the exercise as too much of a distraction from the main focus (war in Korea), and as too unrealistic.As we pointed out in chapter 1, the military planners assumed that since such aircraft would be coming from overseas; they would have time to identify the target and scramble interceptors.”
http://demos.vivisimo.com/search?input-form=simple&v%3Asources=911&v%3Ap…
 
“Northeast Air Defense Sector—DAT Audio Files—11 Sep 2001.”This is not an exercise.”
 
A National Level Exercise, 2009 (NLE ’09) is scheduled July 27-31, 2009. “NLE 09 will allow terrorism prevention efforts to proceed to a logical end (successful or not), with no requirement for response or recovery activities.” http://www.fema.gov/media/fact_sheets/nle09.shtm No requirement for response ? In the event of a real attack during the NLE, we we again have menial response like on 9/11 or no response at all?  Our U.S. military and federal agencies, in cooperation with foreign troops from Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom (Yes- foreign troops on U.S. Soil !) will be practicing for more imaginary catastrophic events concentrated around Washington, DC and FEMA Region VI, which includes the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
 
Rather ironic FEMA issued this press release regarding  Texas, today July 21, 2009, ” has awarded more than $20 million in hazard mitigation grants to the city of Galveston to acquire 64 homes that suffered extensive damage as a result of Hurricane Ike. One $15.3 million grant was obligated to Galveston for authorities to acquire 46 residential properties located in the 100-year floodplain. Another grant provides $5.4 million to be used for the acquisition of 18 properties in the 100-year floodplain. http://www.fema.gov/news/newsrelease.fema?id=49128  By math math, that 40 million dollars to acquire 128 houses or property–that an average of $312,000 each. Estimated median house or condo value in 2007: $119,658 http://www.city-data.com/housing/houses-Galveston-Texas.html
 
Terrorist attacks don’t just come from plane, trains, automobiles, bombs or in physicality, as The Corbett Report http://www.corbettreport.com/articles/20090717_cyber_911.htm asks, did the real cyber 9/11 attack occur on 9/11?   
 
President Bush signed the plans to invade Afghanistan on Sept. 10th, the day before 9/11 and just yesterday it was announced that another 25,000 soldiers were heading to Afghanistan- pronto.  And as Ron Paul reminded us eight years ago, “We should recognize that American tax dollars helped to create the very Taliban government that now wants to destroy us. In the late 1970s and early 80s, the CIA was very involved in the training and funding of various fundamentalist Islamic groups in Afghanistan, some of which later became today’s brutal Taliban government. In fact, the U.S. government admits to giving the groups at least 6 billion dollars in military aid and weaponry, a staggering sum that would be even larger in today’s dollars.” 
A unique timeline of more events of 9/11 and the Al Qaeda and the Taliban is here http://s3.amazonaws.com/911timeline/main/AAafghanwar.html 
 
Neil Barofsky, special inspector general for the Treasury’s Troubled Asset Relief Program say the U.S. rescue may reach $23.7 Trillion dollars admitting offered criticism in a separate quarterly report of Treasury’s implementation of TARP, saying the department has “repeatedly failed to adopt recommendations” needed to provide transparency and fulfill the administration’s goal to implement TARP “with the highest degree of accountability.”
As a result, taxpayers don’t know how TARP recipients are using the money or the value of the investments, he said in the report. sourced at http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com/2009/07/tarp-special-investigator-says-bailout.html.  The other aberration of America’s economic woes is paying $15 million dollars for toilets on the international space station http://www.hightechscience.org/zero_gravity_toilet.htm   
 
In this era of supposed transparency, is is painfully obvious that  the 9/11 Commission omitted so many things and deceived the public.  Our government will continue to do so in the name of national security.  Printing, spending and loosing trillions and loosing more lives in terrorist attacks here or abroad is beyond absurd.  The Stenster blog claims, “The failure of the FBI to investigate our professional and proven analysis indicates that the pending 9/11-2B attack is an official conspiracy. The propagandizing by CNN and other Jewish-controlled media against U.S. militias like Ghost Troop indicates that they are a part of that conspiracy.” http://stienster.blogspot.com/
 
Pray -practice makes perfect as the NORAD Press Release says – Falcon Virgo Windy City-Two and Windy City -Three are future exercises that have yet to be scheduled.

Just when I think American economists and politicians have the slightest clue about the most basic facts of world affairs, international trade, or the nature of money, I am reminded yet again of the hypocrisy of this financial and social abyss toward which America is heading in the pecking order of the New World Order.

The U.S. government owns the banks and the car industry.  It sets the rules, makes them up as it goes along and has control over the money supply.  It apparently has no oversight as the Fed in May tap danced around the missing  NINE TRILLION DOLLARS that we could sure use about now. 

Say nothing of main stream media whose focus on the deaths of Michael Jackson is a slap in the face. Icon, perhaps but a role model-hardly. What about all the dead soldiers from U.S. Wars and the one’s breathing  in over 130 foreign countries?  No views of them in the nightly news.

No worries though, Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA), Chairman of the Financial Services Committee, introduced legislation decriminalizing marijuana at the federal level again. If passed, the legislation would eliminate criminal penalties for possessing 100 grams or less of marijuana for personal use.  Not to be outdone, San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano announced the introduction of a bill to tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol in the state of California.  Yippee,  another government owned industry!  Obama just signed a huge tax increase on tobacco, I can only image the tax on a joint.

“The Ammiano legislation would create a regulatory structure for that market similar to that for beer, wine and liquor: it would regulate taxed sales to adults while barring sales to or possession by those under 21. Estimated annual revenue from fees and sales and excise taxes under the proposed regulations runs into the billions of dollars.http://www.drugpolicy.org/news/pressroom/pressrelease/pr022309b.cfm

Maybe the U.S. Government can subsidizes pot growers like it does cotton, corn, soybean and other farming industries with my tax dollars.  Maybe we can trade it on the commodities exchange and all the traders can get a little profit too.  I wonder what currency it will trade-  USD, Amero, Acmetal, Euro…? 

The rest of the world is focusing on a new reserve currency in the New World Order and we focus on legalizing pot and subsidizing farmers in Afghanistan. As of the 111th Congress, Frank is also advocating a 25 percent reduction in the overall Military budget of the United States.

The Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/27/us-announces-shift-in-afg_n_221826.html says that “The United States has announced a new drug policy for opium-rich Afghanistan, saying it was phasing out funding for eradication programs while significantly increasing its funding for alternate crop and drug interdiction efforts. The War on drugs in the U.S has thousands in prison for drugs with our failing policies here, and we are expected to believe that sending millions there will be a deterrent?  I still have that little island in the desert for sale if anyone is interested.

Last week when leaders of the so-called BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) held their first summit.  The BRIC countries comprise 15 per cent of the world economy, 40 per cent of global currency reserves and half the world’s population.  The governments of BRIC and must be laughing like they were smoking marijuana and injecting heroin at America.  Our elected officials focus on legalizing pot rather than be bothered with the cumbersome announcement from Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that the U.S dollar is on notice.

“The artificially maintained unipolar system”, he lectured, is based on “one big centre of consumption, financed by a growing deficit and … one formerly strong reserve currency.” At the root of the global financial crisis, he concluded, is that the US makes too little and spends too much.   “The summit must create the conditions for a fairer world order.” …The BRICs have put the US dollar on notice, and are already finding alternatives as a means of clearing accounts. Medvedev called for the IMF to include the Russian ruble and the Chinese yuan in the basket of currencies used to value its financial products. But that is just for starters. Chinese Central Bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan says the goal is now to create a reserve currency “that is disconnected from individual nations.”sourced at  http://dprogram.net/2009/06/24/a-new-world-is-being-born-one-without-the-us-dollar-greasing-the-wheels-of-commerce/

China, known for it’s Human Rights violations says, “It is a common wish of people of all countries to solve the drug problem as soon as possible and to build this planet into a healthy, civilized, happy and beautiful world.” http://www.china-embassy.org/eng/zt/mzpkz/t36387.htm   “Those convicted of drug-related crimes in China face harsh penalties, in some cases capital punishment. Drug abusers and addicts must undergo rehabilitation at police-run facilities or labor camps. Reformers are attempting to introduce community-based treatment approaches to a system dominated by zero tolerance.”http://www.erowid.org/psychoactives/law/countries/law_china.shtml 

Apparently, the perceptions of a dead American dollar and a dead American soldier can be overcome by getting stoned on government subsidized Marijuana and Opium in The Obama Administration. 

Changes I don’t want to believe in….

Russia is putting it’s foot down and it isn’t in a gentle way. 

” Kyrgyzstan’s president said Tuesday his country is ending U.S. use of an air base key to military operations in Afghanistan- a decision with potentially grave consequences for U.S. efforts to put down surging Taliban and al-Qaida violence.

A U.S. military official in Afghanistan called President Kurmanbek Bakiyev’s statement “political positioning” and denied the U.S. presence at the Manas air base would end anytime soon.   The United States is preparing to deploy an additional 15,000 troops in Afghanistan and Manas is an important stopover for U.S. material and personnel.

Ending U.S. access would be a significant victory for Moscow in its efforts to squeeze the United States out of Central Asia, home to substantial oil and gas reserves and seen by Russia as part of its strategic sphere of influence.” From AP http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/E/EU_RUSSIA_KYRGYZSTAN_US_BASE?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2009-02-03-12-49-12

Well isn’t that just special?  The Russians come, play war games and poke at us with Cuba and Venezuela in the Caribbean Sea, right off the U.S. coastline, and now want to end American presence at a key base just as we are about to increase troop presence.  Such timing.

Just this weekend (Feb 1,09)Near the Pakistan/ Afghan border lies the Swat Valley, where the Taliban and Al Qaeda have traditionally had their strongholds.  17 people were killed in fighting  and the military recently vowed to reinvigorate its efforts where Taliban fighters have set up their own courts, destroyed scores of girls’ schools and reportedly driven out hundreds of thousands of residents.  Swat is less than 100 miles (160 kilometers) from Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad.  http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,486388,00.html 

Yesterday (Feb 2, 09)  Gunmen kidnapped an American U.N. worker and killed his driver in southwestern Pakistan on Monday, underscoring the security threat in a country wracked by al-Qaida violence and rising criminality.  http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/news/2009/02/gunmen_kidnap_american_un_official_in_pakistan.php John Solecki, the head of the U.N. refugee office in the city of Quetta was abducted as he traveled to work.

Vice President Joe Biden says the nation should expect more U.S. military casualties.  Pentagon officials say they plan to send up to 30,000 additional troops to the Afghan war, where the Taliban is resurgent and violence has been on the rise. 

Biden said Sunday that additional U.S. forces will be engaging the enemy more. Asked if that means the U.S. public should expect more American casualties, the vice president said: “I hate to say it, but yes, I think there will be. There will be an uptick.”   From CBS’ “Face the Nation.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/01/25/biden-on-afghanistan-expe_n_160689.html

An uptick?  Frig your uptick- everyone of those numbers has a name Mr. Biden and no matter one’s opinion of GWB, he never referred to any soldier so insignificantly as being an uptick.  With that said… 

The United States set up the Manas base in Kyrgyzstan and a base in neighboring Uzbekistan after the September 2001 terror attacks, to back operations in Afghanistan. Uzbekistan expelled U.S. troops from the base on its territory in 2005 in a dispute over human rights issues, leaving Manas as the only U.S. military facility in the region.

Russia has long been suspicious of the U.S. presence in what it considers its strategic backyard and agreed Tuesday to provide Kyrgyzstan with $2 billion in loans plus another $150 million in financial aid.

Russia also uses a military airbase at Kant, Kyrgyzstan.

The United States currently pumps a total of $150 million into Kyrgyzstan’s economy annually, including $63 million in rent for Manas, Petraeus said last month. http://wire.antiwar.com/2009/02/03/kyrgyzstan-closing-us-base-key-to-afghan-conflict/

No one in the Obama administration has referred to the term, “the war on terror,”  yet the effort to stop terror continues, rightfully so -but at the cost of an uptick of human life.  http://icasualties.org/oef/ and here http://www.unknownnews.net/casualties.html .

It becomes difficult to absorb the fact that we can not, “Get” the bad guys when Google Earth http://earth.google.com/ has released it’s next generation technology that pretty much enables anyone to see a fly on a camel’s ass- anywhere, any time. 

French officer Maj. Pierre-Henri Bunel said, “The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money.”

Ain’t that a kick in the ass if he is telling the truth?

I miss old Dean Martin.

America has spoken.  The 2008 Presidential Election is over.  Barry Baraq Mohammad Hussein Dunham Stereo Obama, Jr., That One- Barack Obama is going to be the 44th President. http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post/stateupdates/gGx3Kc

What struck me in the news coverage of The Election, were the tears of joy streaming from Jessie Jackson’s eyes.  In the words of many black voters, the dream has been at least partially realized.

While America celebrated, Russia was busy.  President Dmitry Medvedev sent congratulations via a telegram http://en.rian.ru/world/20081105/118142101.html .  While addressing the Federal Assemble Medvedev said, “We have no problems with the American nation, we have no inbred anti-Americanism. We hope our partners, the new United States administration, will make a choice in favor of full-fledged relations with Russia,”  Simultaneously he issued a direct threat with an announcement that he would deploy Iskander missiles to Russia’s Kaliningrad region, as a military response to U.S. plans to deploy missile-defense facilities in Poland and the Czech Republic, former Soviet satellites that are now NATO members.  He did not say if they would have nuclear warheads.  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122588962209001415.html and updated at http://www.air-attack.com/news/news_article/3422.

Obama has promised to cut US defense spending and demilitarize while Russia is modernizing it’s fleet of missiles.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/10/22/obama-demilitarizes-while-russia-modernizes-missiles/  Only last Friday, A ground-based missile successfully intercepted a target missile in a test of the nation’s defense system. http://www.mda.mil/mdalink/html/mdalink.html An intercontinental ballistic missile interceptor blasted out of an underground silo at Vandenberg Air Force Base shortly after 1:15 p.m., and tracked a target missile that had lifted off from the Kodiak Launch Complex in Alaska. Two operational interceptor missiles are currently based at Vandenberg and there are 11 deployed at Fort Greely, Alaska.  Obama may want to play nicer with Sarah Palin from Alaska.  http://www.ocregister.com/news/missile-defense-interceptor-1854447-target-air

Russia is not alone in the quest for missile leadership. http://missilethreat.com/missilesoftheworld/ Accuracy of missiles like the Al Hussein, Project 1728, Al Hijara a Road Mobile SRBM- is such that it can only be effectively used against extremely large targets, as it can land as far as two miles away from the intended target. As such, it is useful to strike population centers, large military staging areas and oil fields, but little else.

In Iran, with whom Obama has pledged to sit down with no preconditions, the The Shahab-3 is a medium-range, liquid-propellant, road-mobile ballistic missile.  Nuclear, HE, chemical, or sub munitions, it is ready and operational in Iran.   Its range is sufficient to target Israel, Turkey, the Indian subcontinent, and US forces stationed in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Persian Gulf. The missile’s low accuracy means the missile would probably only be usable to attack civilian populations and has no military application other than simply holding enemy populations hostage.

Obama said, ” If we can responsibly deploy missile defenses that would protect us and our allies we should – but only when the system works. ” http://campaignspot.nationalreview.com/post/?q=NDgzZTk5YjBjYmNkNDQ2NDhhOGFlNmJhYzJhYmFmODM= President Obama must understand that while not perfect, they are working and others are in development.  One is the Kinetic Energy Interceptor, an agile, high-acceleration system that can get close to launch sites because of its mobility. Another is the Airborne Laser, which will be able to strike lofting missiles above the clouds at the speed of light using a laser from hundreds of miles away. A third program is the Network Centric Airborne Defense Element, an inexpensive modification of the main air-to-air missile carried on U.S. fighters that could be ready to intercept enemy missiles by the end of the next president’s first term in office.  http://www.spacewar.com/reports/Thompson_Files_Missile_defense_realities_999.html

Also on the Election Day, The Bahraini Air Force conducted a joint exercise in missile defense with units from the US Central Command, Bahrain’s official BNA news agency reported on Tuesday.  http://www.spacewar.com/missiledefense.html

Israel celebrated the election by bombing the Gaza Strip. “A four-month ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza was in jeopardy today after Israeli troops killed six Hamas gunmen in a raid into the territory.  Hamas responded by firing a wave of rockets into southern Israel.  http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/nov/05/israelandthepalestinians

In the Congo, http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/congo Rebels led by the renegade Tutsi general Laurent Nkunda clashed with pro-government Mai Mai militia today, threatening a fragile ceasefire around the provincial capital, Goma. The renewed fighting prompted aid groups to suspend efforts to reach ten of thousands of people displaced and starving by previous violence. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/nov/05/congo-aid

What could be worse than Proposition 4, 8, 10,12 or 14?  What is worse than the financial bailouts?  What is worse than reform or taxes?  What could be worse than war?  A nuclear war and  nuclear disaster. 

President George Washington has summed it up, “The foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality, and the preeminence of free government be exemplified by all the attributes which can win the affections of its citizens, and command the respect of the world.”

Joe Biden and Joe The Plumber can agree on one thing.  President Obama will be, and is being tested even before his inauguration.
