Remembering 9/11

By D. E. Carson, published on Sep 12, 2007

...in a second Civil War. Traditional media outlets such as America’s newspapers besmirch the good name of people who are doing everything in their power to keep terrorists from returning to the shores of America. Filmmakers are outright lying to the people about what is going on in Iraq by undermining soldiers’ efforts. During the Congressional hearings featuring General Petraius, the Los Angeles Times actually had to unmitigated gall to refer to the general as “General Betray-us” – a sentiment echoed by other deeply liberal-biased newspapers. Film... (more)

Link TV....Television without Borders lives up to its claim.

By Steven Lane, published on Sep 9, 2007

...original program and Peabody Award winner, "Mosaic" features selections from daily TV news programs produced by national broadcasters throughout the Middle East. The news reports are presented unedited and translated, when necessary, into English. See what countries like Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian National Authority,Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, United Arab Emirates and other countries are reporting as the real news. It's a totally different perspective. There is "World Music" that features artists and music videos from around... (more)

'Scarface' Director Undermines War Effort in New Movie

By Chris Jones, published on Aug 31, 2007

I was disappointed to read that Hollywood director Brian De Palma’s latest work is a propaganda piece, highlighting the atrocities that a handful of U.S. soldiers committed in the Iraqi town of Mahmudiyah. It’s ironic that someone like De Palma who is best known for directing ‘Scarface’ and ‘The Untouchables’ would be an anti-war liberal, but definitely not surprising. At a time when our country and indeed Brian De Palma’s country is at war with radical Islam, it’s just a shame that he chose to do a film about U.S. soldiers raping and murdering an entire family in Iraq. He uses... (more)

Support The Troops By Keeping Them Alive Longer

By Chris Jones, published on Aug 24, 2007

U.S. troops in Iraq will receive at least 1,000 fewer special armored vehicles than expected this year due to the amount of time needed for shipment, the Pentagon announced. It appears that “Supporting The Troops” is nothing more than just rhetoric since the best way to support them would be to keep them from being blown to pieces. What the hell has happened to this country? The Pentagon had expected to get at least 2,500 of the new Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles delivered to the troops in Iraq this year. I can’t think of a higher priority as long as our men and women are... (more)

Rosa Brooks Would You please just shut up

By sanity check, published on Aug 4, 2007

...and safety of their homes, travel half way around the world to perform a job that they honestly believe is necessary. Sorry Ms. Brooks, these young people aren’t going to run over an Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) in the parking lot at the Georgetown Law School. You have to travel to Iraq or Afghanistan for that adventure and yes, they are heroes. And at the risk of stating the obvious: you seem to have managed to keep your butt out of the line of fire while criticizing those that have accepted these dangers. I make no apologies for a world that places a premium on the sacrifices ... (more)

Terrorism, the Endless War

By Credo, published on Aug 3, 2007

In this day and age, it is a very critical period in human evolution. The eyes of the third world like Afghanistan, Iraq, Yugoslavia, (along with many more governments and innocent civilians who have been tortured, maimed and killed as a result of the American foreign policy) continue to examine, consider, and analyze American political history. And as they examine this country’s internal guiding principles, such goals as freedom, democracy, capitalism, or the bylaws of the Constitution they have fail to see where these goals of American beliefs are in line with American actions and policies... (more)

Free Speech Under Assault ... From BOTH Sides

By LogicalSol, published on Jul 26, 2007

...problem"? Talk radio audiences didn't know what they were on about? Excuse me, Senators, but this SAME talk radio you look to silence are the very same that elected you. Forgot about that, didn't you? Those in the GOP camp, the still loyal Bush supporters, in spite of his countless gaffes with Iraq's misguidedness, may want this Doctrine passed as well. To make nice to the Left behind the daily castrating of the GOP, perhaps. Yet the borders remain wide open with the "we can't deport 12-20 million illegals" drumbeat the country's citizens are daily subject to; Marines doing the jobs they... (more)

Taking Responsibility For What We Do As A Nation

By Steven Blake, published on Jul 10, 2007

... thought with an open mind** I understand that a great part of our nation is leaning towards bringing our troops home. I respect, understand, and appreciate that. Nothing would make me happier in my mind than to have all of our families out of harm’s way. We as a nation decided to go into Iraq and take Saddam out of power. As a nation, remember that phrase. We also have a responsibility as a nation to help get Iraq on its feet. As a nation we went in there and caused this destruction and turmoil and in my mind we need to clean it up. Whether you believe we went for the wrong reasons ... (more)

Senator Sheehan? Where's My Gun?

By D. E. Carson, published on Jul 9, 2007

Cindy Sheehan, the "thumb sucking feel sorry for me because my son volunteered to join the military and got killed in Iraq defending my right to be the stupidest person ever seen in public" dimwit who parked her sorry butt outside the president’s Crawford, Texas ranch because she really is too stupid to breathe has announced that she intends to file papers to run for Congress against current Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. WHAT?!? That’s right. THAT Cindy Sheehan. The woman has completely lost her mind. She is obviously still very much in denial that her son actually volunteered... (more)
