Enemies get together

Chavez and Iran
One of the avowed enemies of the US in our own hemisphere and one of them in the Middle East have proven to me that they are true enemies of ours .
This is from --
" Iran awarded Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez its highest state medal on Sunday for supporting Tehran in its nuclear standoff with the international community, while Chavez urged the world to rise up and defeat the U.S., state-run media in both countries reported.

The leftist Venezuelan leader also condemned Israel for what he called the "terrorism" and "madness" of its attacks in Lebanon, Venezuelan state television reported.

'Let's save the human race, let's finish off the U.S. empire," Chavez said. "This (task) must be assumed with strength by the majority of the peoples of the world.'"

Cease Fire ??

Israel agrees to 48 Hr ceasefire
At the moment , Israel has ceased air strikes only , full ceasefire may follow , this after the loss of quite a few civilians in an air raid that hit a building in Qana , near a known launch site of rockets into Israel . The citizens knew about the danger , but did not leave , even though Israel had leafletted the area , nor reveal that Hezbollah fighters have hidden among them for a long time . Fox has shown photos showing Hezbollah members training in the midst of Lebanese citizens prior to the beginning of hostilities .In addition , unconfirmed Israeli sources say the building collapsed hours after the attack , either due to damage or possibly due to explosives stored in the building .

This ceasefire is unilateral actually , since Hezbollah will certainly be the first to violate it .
Israel insists that Lebanon must work toward disarming Hezbollah , and that seems unlikely , since they neither have the military strength , nor the will to do so .

Cindy " Rolling Faster " Sheehan

Sheehan has purchased property in Crawford , Tx. to make a home for her continuing comedy protest aginst the war in Iraq . Don't you think this was orchestrated by her rich supporters ?
Sheehan said she used insurance money received from her son Casey's death .
She is scheduled to be in Crawford August 16th , and will demand a meeting with President Bush again .
What she failed to do was check George's schedule !!
The President is scheduled to be in Crawford for the first 2 weeks of August , and will likely be gone when she arrives .
Maybe she DID check that schedule and will insist the President is avoiding her .AP article on>

Apparently the seller didn't know Sheehan and her group were the buyers !!
FORMER OWNER: "We were duped, we were deceived. We had no idea. It was an individual person that purchased it, and we were just led to believe that this person was a hurricane Katrina evacuee, and he wanted to purchase this land to build a home on."

Curiouser and curiouser in my opinion !


Lebanon's Past and Future

When you were a child , did you see , or grow up in , a home where the parents or caretakers took little or no responsibility for the children's problems or behaviour ? Did the parents support the behaviour of one child over another regardless of how destructive it was ?
They were ENABLERS .
An enabler bases his actions on manipulation and dishonesty that hurts others in both obvious and subtle ways .
Syria and Iran are not only backing Hezbollah monetarily and materially , they are the main ENABLERS of Hezbollah's misdeeds and virulence .
Any chance to prevent a repeat of Lebanon's history since 1978 depends on how the world deals with the ENABLERS ; Iran , Syria , the UN , and the left in the US and Europe .

Kofi Annan's true colors

Not hard to believe this !
Kofi Annan has shown his true colors now , as if we didn't already know . He has issued a statment suggesting that Israel intentionally targeted the UN Peacekeeper's post in a bombing raid in South Lebanon . Is he unaware of the policy of the terrorists to station themselves close to such places in hopes that they won't get bombed , or at the least when they do and innocents are killed and wounded , they can use it against Israel ?
Read about it here from the Reuters Alert Net .
And read this from Wizbang .

All this attention to an accidental situation hides the fact that Hezbollah fired scores , if not dozens of rockets into Israel during the same time period . It is well known that they have little or no tracking capabilties for their rockets and kill or maim many innocents themselves ( and by design , I might add ! ).
The UN , by acting this way is legitimizing terrorism , and do we think they will be fair if they are set up to organize a full peace-keeping force in the area ?
Read this from The Chicago Tribune :
"Part of the goal of organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas is to gain moral legitimacy for their terrorist tactics by having them equated with the conventional military tactics used by democratic regimes. Only the morally obtuse--or perverse--cannot recognize the difference between a terrorist group that targets civilian population centers with anti-personnel weapons designed to maximize civilian casualties and a democracy that seeks to prevent terrorism by employing smart bombs designed to minimize civilian casualties.".."Annan knows better than to suggest a moral equivalence. He is fully aware of the tactic employed by terrorists of launching their rockets from, and hiding behind, civilian shields, so as to make democracies have to kill some civilians to get at the terrorists."

That tells us the tale in a nutshell ! Source-

Civilian Casualties in Lebanon

Disgruntled Truck Driver has much to say about Israel being given all the blame for civilian casualties in Lebanon . He makes some strong points that I can certainly agree with .
He says --
"Who's fault is it when civilians die in the war on terror?
As a former Military man, I oppose the indiscriminate killing of civilians. The Military signs the dotted line and by doing so you know you are making yourself a target of every enemy of your country. This is a part of excepting the paycheck, it's that simple.

However, Israel is being attacked for a number of things during this conflict, not the least of which is the killing of Lebanese civilians. However, what these critics refuse to acknowledge is the fact that Lebanese civilians are not dying because Israel is targeting them, they are dying by design. Hezbollah is intentionally hiding among the civilian population and advertising every civilian death, while downplaying the deaths of their own fellow terrorists.

The fact is we live in the information age and civilian deaths make the news and every one of them is used to attack Israel. Israel is doing an outstanding job winning the fight, but they are and will continue to lose the propaganda battle. Why? Because hating Israel is completely acceptable among the Liberals.

When a terrorists intentionally kill civilians, the Liberals justify it as an "act of desperation"! Yet, when a uniformed Military does the same even when unintentional, they are crucified as "Baby killers" by those same Liberals! This is the ingrained double standard of Liberalism.

Liberals preach that we should be accepting of Muslims, while at the same time attacking Jews! No group of people in the history of the world have suffered as many violent deaths as the Jews, yet they get no sympathy from the people that claim to be the most "sympathetic".

While I am on the subject, why do Liberals think we shouldn't bomb a Mosque that has terrorists shooting and attacking from within it? Is a Mosque still considered "Holy" if it is being used as a sniper tower? Give me a friggin' break!

I am so sick of Liberal Hypocrisy!!!!!!!!!! "

Mary Jo Kopechne

Does Teddy think about this ?

Yesterday would have been Mary Jo's 66th birthday .
This could be similar to what she might say from the grave .
" I was a young member of a team of people helping the Democrat campaigns , attending a party with movers and shakers of the party . Partying with the rising star of the party was sort of a dream of mine . We had been drinking for a while and Teddy offered to drive me back to my motel . Somehow we drove off a bridge into a pond . The car ended up upside down in the water ,and Teddy was able to get out , but I wasn't .I don't know if he dived back in to try to rescue me or not , but he did leave , so I thought he would go get help . As I lay trapped in the car underwater , he swam away , got out , and went back to where the party was . I am sure he passed at least one opportunity to phone for help on his way . He didn't even call from the party location . He also tried to get someone to lie about who was driving the car .
The police found the car and then called him . He had not even called them in the morning ! By then , of course , I had drowned .
Teddy has since risen to near the top of the Democrat Party despite this and other incidents in his past . At least this one has kept him from ever running for President !
I wonder if Teddy ever thinks about what he did to me?
I DOUBT IT !!! "

( Disclaimer: I made this up from things I have read and researched , it is NOT a quote from Mary Jo ! )

Finally !

Arab states blaming Iran
"Key Arab governments have taken the rare step of publicly blaming Hezbollah for the growing violence in the Middle East underscoring their growing fear of the group's main sponsor, Iran.

Saudi Arabia, supported by Jordan, Egypt, several Persian Gulf States and the Palestinian Authority, chastised Hezbollah for "unexpected, inappropriate and irresponsible acts" during an emergency Arab League summit in Cairo on Saturday."
This is from an article in The Hamilton Spectator which can be read

Bush Bashing

Dan Quayle walks out on Mellencamp concert
It seems Dan Quayle was not happy with John Cougar Mellencamp bashing President Bush !
Read the story from
I don't avoid talent because of political views , but maybe more people ought to send a message to the performers that bash our President , they are NOT political insiders , and NOT reporters , they are performers ! They should stick to music , movies , or athletics .

Did anyone hear this?

Call to New Orleans
"You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act."
Barbara Hall, A Summons to New Orleans, 2000

Doesn't seem so , quite a few have done little to attempt a return to New Orleans and help rebuild . Many of the workers are Mexican immigrants , not former residents . Why can't they go and work there , even live in the trailers and tents the immigrants are living in ?
Also , SOME of them are adding to the crime stats of the cities they retreated to in the evacuation .

Rolling Fast ?

Cindy Sheehan's fast against war
"The hunger strike will see at least four activists, Sheehan, veteran comedian and peace campaigner Dick Gregory, former army colonel Ann Wright and environmental campaigner Diane Wilson launch serious, long-term fasts.

"I don't know how long I can fast, but I am making this open-ended," said Wilson.

Other supporters, including Penn, Sarandon, novelist Alice Walker and actor Danny Glover will join a "rolling" fast, a relay in which 2,700 activists pledge to refuse food for at least 24 hours, and then hand over to a comrade.

Though the anti-war movement is trying hard to puncture public perceptions, some experts believe such protests have little impact on how Americans view foreign wars.

This was snipped from

I agree they won't have any effect on the war effort , I really think they are hurting their cause with these protests .

Fourth of July

My Pledge
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands. One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

And my Anthem
The Defense of Fort McHenry
by Francis Scott Key
20 September 1814

Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, now conceals, now discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines on the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! O long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wiped out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, for our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner forever shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
