“Hello Media…you are killing us”

 Hello media, do you know you indirectly kill American soldiers every day? You inspire and report the enemy’s objective every day. You are the enemy’s greatest weapon. The enemy cannot beat us on the battlefield so all he does is try to wreak enough havoc and have you report it every day. With you and the enemy using each other, you continually break the will of the American public and American government.

We go out daily and bust and kill the enemy, uncover and destroy huge weapons caches and continue to establish infrastructure. So daily we put a whoopin on the enemy, but all the enemy has to do is turn on the TV and get re-inspired. He gets to see his daily roadside bomb, truck bomb, suicide bomber or mortar attack. He doesn’t see any accomplishments of the U.S. military (FOX, you’re not exempt, you suck also).

Let’s give you an example. A couple of days ago we conducted an air assault. We lifted troops into an area for an operation. The operation went well and our ground troops killed (insurgents) and took several prisoners, freed a few hostages and uncovered a weapons cache containing munitions and chemicals that were going to be used in improvised bombs.

The next morning I woke up and turned on AFN (Armed Forces Network) and
watched the nightly news (NBC). Nothing, none of that reported. But the daily car bomb report was reported, and the file footage was not even from the event. There was a car bomb in the Sadr City area and your news report showed old car bomb footage from another part of town from some other time.

So we really set the enemy back that night but all the enemy had to do was turn on the news and be reassured that the enemy’s agenda (objective) was still going to be fed to the American public.”We, the soldiers, keep breaking the back of the enemy. You, the media, keep rejuvenating the enemy.

How hard would it be to contact the PAO (public affairs officer) of the 1st CAV, 36th CAB, 25th ID or the Marines and ask what did you guys accomplish today – good and bad? How about some insurgent blooper videos? Now that would be something to show on the evening news.”Media, we know you hate the George Bush Administration, but report both sides, not just your one-sided agenda. You have got to realize how you are continually motivating every extremist, jihadist and terrorist to continue their resolve to kill American soldiers.

I am just tired of busting my butt over here and coming home every night and turning on the TV (Armed Forces Network) and hearing how we are failing miserably.

Where’s the Outrage?!

Here’s al Qaeda’s torture manual.
This is graphic.

MAY 24–In a recent raid on an al-Qaeda safe house in Iraq, U.S. military officials recovered an assortment of crude drawings depicting torture methods like “blowtorch to the skin” and “eye removal.” Along with the images, which you’ll find on the following pages, soldiers seized various torture implements, like meat cleavers, whips, and wire cutters. Photos of those items can be seen here. The images, which were just declassified by the Department of Defense, also include a picture of a ramshackle Baghdad safe house described as an “al-Qaeda torture chamber.” It was there, during an April 24 raid, that soldiers found a man suspended from the ceiling by a chain. According to the military, he had been abducted from his job and was being beaten daily by his captors. In a raid earlier this week, Coalition Forces freed five Iraqis who were found in a padlocked room in Karmah. The group, which included a boy, were reportedly beaten with chains, cables, and hoses. Photos showing injuries sustained by those captives can be found here. (12 pages)

Torture, Al-Qaeda Style

Enemies of America

I’ll post their pics and quotes throughout the day.

MICHAEL CHERTOFF, HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY: “You know, Wolf, first, I understand there’s some people who expect anything other than capital punishment is an amnesty. The reality is the proposal here requires people who came in illegally who want to stay to pay a penalty. Like a fine. That’s a punishment. That’s not an amnesty. “

Mr. Chertoff is living in fantasy land. Your job is to protect America. You obviously can’t grasp the concept, therefor you should resign. Let someone that knows what it means to defend America take the job. If I were your boss, you would have been fired the day you uttered this crap.

Call this idiot and tell him how you feel.

Immigration Thoughts

From David Frum:

As we have seen in both the Harriet Miers fight and the Dubai ports deal, this White House’s first instinct when faced with dissent in the ranks is to insult and abuse its strongest supporters. “Sexist”; “elitist”; “registered bigots” were some of the terms cast during the previous fights. Brace yourselves for much, much worse. This is no way to win friends and influence people. And triggering an internecine party conflict on the eve of a difficult and dangerous election is no way to re-elect a damaged incumbent party.

Sen. Brownback has a horrendous record on immigration. He is about two miles to the Left of most Democrats on this issue. Americans for Better Immigration gives him a overall grade of D. On reducing chain migration, he receives an F-; on reducing visa lotteries, F-; on reducing unnecessary visas, F-; and on reducing amnesties, F.

With politicians such as these and many more, who needs al Qaeda?
