FROM THE STREETS OF AMERICA:

AMERICAN TROOP WITHDRAWAL FROM IRAQ
I am glad to see that our troops are finally going home. It’s about time that America concluded the business of bringing democracy to that nation. Though I fully understand the necessities of waging this war, the costs for Americans has been extremely high.
I wonder what will happen to the country after America departs. Will it revert back to the state of affairs that it’s former rulers had shaped, or will it get even worse considering the proximity of Iraq to other countries such as Iran.
I see nothing but trouble ahead for that particular region. It won’t be long before another Jihadist sect seizes power and becomes yet another enemy of the Western Nations. I suppose that our future will have us once again with American boots on those deserts.
I read with horror the words spoken by Karzai would back-up Pakistan in the event the US would take military actions against the leadership of Pakistan’s rogue military junta. Considering that it was the US State Department who brought this idiot into power; I find it detestable that he’s quickly forgotten which side his bread is buttered on.
After eight months of war, and billions of dollars spent by the US and other NATO nations, the despotic ruler Moammar Gadhafi finally faced the same fate as so many other tyrannical dictators have faced throughout history. A bullet to the braincase…
Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the interim commander of the NTC has declared that Libya would be ruled under the iron fist of Sharia Law. Well Hell’s-Bell’s–who didn’t see that one coming. Unless of course you are a politician trying to play both sides from the middle.
Gadhafi had it coming when he actively participated in the 1972 Munich Massacre, as well as all of the support that he sponsored throughout the years towards terrorist groups. But the question to ask today; “Is the world better off with yet another Islamic country, whose political/religious doctrine advocates the harsh rule of pre-2011 Afghanistan?” Let’s not forget that Afghanistan Sharia Law was the most detestable and barbaric form of governance on the face of the earth. Seconded only by North Korea’s totalitarian iron-fist rule.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: every time I turn on the news, or cruise the internet, there is the “blooming idiot” of Iran threatening America and Israel again. His crap is really getting old. My thoughts are that somebody needs to stuff a huge spoon of “American Made Peanut Butter” into his foul lying mouth–perhaps by the way of a Tomahawk cruise missile. I certainly don’t want to see America engaged in yet another mid-east war, but at some point this fool has got to be put down like a rabid dog.
Iran has been at the forefront of terrorist acts, they’ve sent special forces teams into Iraq to kill American troops, and they are actively seeking the destruction of Israel and the west through nuclear weapons. Geez–lets hire some locals and “OFF DA BASTARD” before he makes good on his evil plans.
OCCUPY WALL STREET:
What a freaking waste of energy!
They say that if you really want to know something about a company, or movement–just follow the money… Yep, The Money is Dirty!
When I hear words like: Collective, Division Of Wealth, Class Structure; and other like phrases–one single word comes to mind: Communist.
I fail to understand how destroying America’s financial system would make anything better for me, or anyone else that I know. Though I agree with some of the ideas that are being presented, using economic terrorism isn’t the way to accomplish that goal.
So I ask myself these very simple questions:
#1: If Wall Street went south–where would that leave America?
#2 How do I benefit from all of this?
#3 Who really benefits from all of this?
answer those three questions for yourself, and I think that perhaps you will understand how stupid these protests really are.
The problem can be further exacerbated by one single act of violence. Image what would happen if some nutcase decides to thrown one Molotov Cocktail at the police forces? Things will quickly get out of hand, and get real ugly in a hurry. Will American Law Enforcement fire real bullets at their countrymen? Now that is the REAL QUESTION of the day…
WASHINGTON (AFP) – US Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Tuesday accused Iran and Syria of arming Hezbollah with increasingly sophisticated rockets and missiles, saying the militia’s arsenal undermined stability in the region.
“Syria and Iran are providing Hezbollah with rockets and missiles of ever-increasing capability,” Gates said at a joint news conference with his Israeli counterpart, Ehud Barak.
“And we’re at a point now, where Hezbollah has far more rockets and missiles than most governments in the world, and this is obviously destabilizing for the whole region and we’re watching it very carefully.”
Gates did not say if Syria was supplying Hezbollah with Scud missiles as Israel has alleged.
Barak voiced serious concern over Syria’s support for Hezbollah but did not repeat the allegation that it was providing Scuds to the Lebanese Shiite militia.
Damascus has vehemently rejected the charge.
Barak said Syria was arming Hezbollah with “weapons systems that can turn or disrupt the very delicate balance in Lebanon.”
He added: “We do not intend to provoke any kind of a major collision in Lebanon or vis-a-vis Syria.”
Last week, the most senior Syrian diplomat in Washington, Deputy Chief of Mission Zouheir Jabbour, was summoned to the State Department to review what the United States called “Syria’s provocative behavior concerning the potential transfer of arms to Hezbollah.”
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mouallem said it was regrettable that the United States had accepted Israel’s accusations against Damascus as true.
The Scud allegations come as the United States steps up dialogue with Syria, and US lawmakers have seized upon the accusations to argue against any rapprochement between Washington and Damascus.
Both Gates and Barak said their countries agreed about the threat posed by Iran’s nuclear program, with the Israeli defense minister endorsing Washington’s efforts to secure fresh sanctions against Tehran.
But he said Israel wanted to see sanctions with a time limit.
“We expect the sanctions to be effective and to be limited in time so we will be able to judge …what kind of results stem from the sanctions regime,” Barack said.
Amid recent tensions between the United States and Israel, both men stressed the strength of the bond between the two allies.
Gates said “our defense relationship is stronger than ever, to the mutual benefit of both nations.”
The US defense secretary also sought to clarify how the American military views the effect of the stalled Middle East peace process.
Asked about recent congressional testimony from General David Petraeus, head of US Central Command, Gates said the United States viewed the lack of progress in the peace process as providing “political ammunition to our adversaries in the Middle East and in the region.”
He said “progress in this arena will enable us not only to perhaps get others to support the peace process, but also support us in our efforts to try and impose effective sanctions against Iran.”
But he said that “General Petraeus did not say that the lack of progress in the peace process is costing American lives.”
Ever time that a Improvised Explosive Device (IED) is detonated, remember that the IED was manufactured in Iran by a regime that is consumed with killing Jews and Americans. These IED’s are built in Iran, and secretly smuggled into Iraq to be used against American forces.
Iran has become the world’s most prolific terrorist group. It bankrolls every anti-american and anti-Israel terrorist group on the face of the earth—sending money, arms, and ammunition across the globe in huge quantities.
