This is funny stuff here.

They’re not happy in Libya …
They’re not happy in Morocco …
They’re not happy in Iran …
They’re not happy in Iraq …
They’re not happy in Yemen …
They’re not happy in Afghanistan …
They’re not happy in Pakistan …
They’re not happy in Syria …
They’re not happy in Lebanon …

SO, WHERE ARE THEY HAPPY?
They’re happy in Australia …
They’re happy in Canada …
They’re happy in England …
They’re happy in France …
They’re happy in Italy …
They’re happy in Germany …
They’re happy in Sweden …
They’re happy in the USA …
They’re happy in Norway …
They’re happy in Holland …
They’re happy in Denmark …
Basically, they’re happy in every country that is not Muslim and unhappy in every country that is!
AND WHO DO THEY BLAME?
Not Islam.
Not their leadership.
Not themselves.
They blame the countries where they’re happy!
And then, they want to change those countries to be like, the country they came from where they were unhappy!
Excuse me, but I can’t help wondering. How damn dumb can you get?
Everyone seems to be wondering why Muslim terrorists are so quick to commit suicide.

Let’s have a look at the evidence:
• No Christmas
• No television
• No nude women
• No football
• No pork chops
• No hot dogs
• No burgers
• No beer or liquor
• No bacon
• Rags for clothes
• Towels for hats
• Constant wailing from some idiot in a tower
• More than one wife
• More than one mother-in-law
• You can’t shave
• Your wife can’t shave
• You can’t wash off the smell of donkeys
• You cook over burning camel poop
• Your wife is picked by someone else for you
• and your wife smells worse than your donkey
Then they tell them that “when they die, it all gets better?”
Well, No Shit Sherlock!
It’s not like it could get much worse!

Save the A-10.

A-10 Warthog

The B-1 is not suited for this type of mission. I don’t care what these Air Force morons say, it isn’t a close air support aircraft. That’s complete bullshit. 5 men are dead because of some asshole general’s B-1 bomber fiefdom.

The A-10 is the best close air support aircraft on the planet and these assholes are playing budget games with the lives of our Soldiers.

Unacceptable.

Budget cuts, errant B1 bomber blamed in deadly ‘friendly fire’ accident in Afghan war

The “friendly fire” airstrike that killed five American soldiers in Afghanistan on June 9 is the first known case of a battlefield catastrophe that can be linked to automatic defense spending cuts that greatly curtailed prewar training.

A review of the worst American fratricide in the long Afghanistan war also shows that the military’s official investigation faults a Green Beret commander, an Air Force air controller and the four-man crew on the B-1B bomber that conducted the errant strike.

But the investigation, headed by an Air Force general, does not question the use of a strategic bomber for close air support, even though experts say the tragedy illustrates why the big plane is misplaced in that role.

…are getting our Soldiers killed.
There’s no other way to say it.
And this President doesn’t give a shit about the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines under his command.
As the Commander in Chief it is his responsibility to make sure that his policies aren’t getting our Soldiers killed needlessly.
His absolute lack of concern for the military in general is appalling to me. Thank God I retired before this douche bag was elected.
I thought Clinton was bad, but this guy takes the prize for worst C-i-C ever.

In Their Own Words: Obama’s Effect on Military Families
By Elise Cooper

President Obama seems to have a disregard for those defending America.  Recently, on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, he commented on the death of three Americans and Ambassador Chris Stevens: “… it’s not optimal.”  The mother of Sean Smith, a Foreign Service officer and one of the three killed, reportedly responded to the president: “My son is not very optimal. He is also very dead. It was a disrespectful thing to say[.]”

That is how many families feel about the president’s attitude toward those who have died serving their country.  Billy and Karen Vaughn spoke with American Thinker about their deceased Navy SEAL Team Six son, Aaron, and their views on this administration’s rules of engagement policies.

Aaron Vaughn was one of thirty U.S. service members, including 22 members of SEAL Team Six, killed when the helicopter they were traveling in was downed on August 5, 2011, in Afghanistan.  This was the largest loss of life in the history of naval special warfare.  At the time of his death, Aaron left behind a two-year-old son, a two-month-old daughter, his wife, and his parents.  He became a SEAL in 2004 and joined SEAL Team Six in 2010.  He was one of the few SEALs to get his name on the “First Time Every Time Wall,” an honor for those SEALs who passed every test on their first try.

…exposed from the debate.
This one is on the so called “war savings” that Obama was yammering about last night.

Of course nice people call it a “gimmick” I call it a lie.  You decide.

Spending “War Savings” Is Still a Budget Gimmick
Emily Goff

During the first presidential debate, President Obama reiterated a policy proposal that barely holds water. His proposal to use so-called war savings from the troop drawdowns in Iraq and Afghanistan to pay for more domestic spending is nothing short of a budget gimmick. It would also justify continued federal spending excesses.

Obama argued for taking “some of the money that we’re saving as we wind down two wars to rebuild America and that we reduce our deficit in a balanced way that allows us to make these critical investments [on education, transportation, and infrastructure].”

It’s a myth that merits debunking.

Myth: Money not spent on wars overseas counts as budget savings.

Fact: The overseas military operations are winding down, so the federal government will spend less money in that area. Counting those spending reductions as new savings is an elementary budget gimmick.

There is only one question that needs to be answered.
Why are we still there?

America’s Dumbest War, Ever

Yesterday a concerned father forwarded to me a letter from his son in Afghanistan. I confirmed authenticity, and republish with permission:

Dad,

I am fed up. I cannot believe the lack of attention the recent changes in this war is receiving by the media or the country. I think I saw one thing on CNN about the following subject, but I had to dig extensively to find it. The purpose of this letter is to let you know of the garbage that our soldiers are going through right now. With this knowledge, I hope that you take action by writing your congressmen.

First, because of the recent green on blue incidents or “insider threats” as the new buzz phrase dictates, all coalition forces in Afghanistan have completely stopped partnering with the ANA, AUP, and ALP in order to prevent the death of anymore CF casualties by ANSF or Taliban disguised as them. This is also greatly spurred by President Karzi’s indifferent attitude and lack of action to take measures to prevent further insider attacks.

…are now allowed to be armed.

WTF?

Why weren’t they armed from the get go? They are in a fucking war zone. You carry your weapon loaded at all times. Even if you are a fobbit.

Sometimes the PC mentality of the military really does get people killed. It’s gotten 10 Soldiers killed in the last two weeks.

The PC generals need to get shit canned.

Morons.

All coalition troops at Afghan bases now armed around the clock
By Barbara Starr

The uptick in attacks by Afghan security forces against coalition troops has hit home, with all troops at NATO headquarters and all bases across Afghanistan now ordered to carry loaded weapons around the clock, CNN learned Friday.

Gen. John Allen, the NATO commander in Afghanistan, ordered the move, according to a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the orders. The order, made in recent days, was divulged amid two more so-called green-on-blue or insider attacks Friday.

This 39-Year-Old Woman Enlisted Five Years Ago And Is Already An American Hero

When Army Sgt. Julia Bringloe received the Distinguished Flying Cross during a Manhattan ceremony last week it wasn’t for any one particular thing that she had done.

Bringloe, 39, received the honor for dozens of courageous acts performed during a 60-hour mission where she and her medevac crew rescued 14 wounded soldiers.

Erik German from The Daily talked to Bringloe and her helicopter crew about Operation Hammerdown and the nearly three days they spent flying into, hovering above, and dropping in, to extreme danger and live combat.
