The Good Guys™ took out another of Michael Moore-on’s Minutemen™ in Iraq.

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S.-led forces have killed one of the most important leaders of al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recent similar operations have left the organization fractured, a top American commander said Friday.

“Abu Usama al-Tunisi was one of the most senior leaders … the emir of foreign terrorists in Iraq and part of the inner leadership circle,” said Brig. Gen. Joseph Anderson.

Al-Tunisi was a leader in helping bring foreign terrorists into the country and his death “is a key loss” to al-Qaeda leadership there, Anderson told a Pentagon news conference via videoconference from Baghdad.

Anderson said recent coalition operations also have helped cut in half the previous flow of foreign fighters into Iraq, which had been at about 60 to 80 a month.

He credited the work of the Iraqi Department of Border Enforcement and U.S. teams.

Unnamed sources state that Susan Sarandon & Tim Robbins are rumored to be making arrangements to attend the funeral and issue eulogies for the deceased. (Well, we just started the rumor, but at least we’re the first to report on it.)

F.E.T.E.

A soldier knows a comrade in arms.

bush1.jpg

A soldier knows who he can trust.

bush2.jpg

A soldier knows his commanders will never let him down.

A soldier knows that when he returns home, it will be to a grateful nation.

They are your brothers, your sisters, the guy or girl next door. They are the ones who stand between you and harm, in all the empty places where they must walk.

And when their commander in chief stands before them, the rafters shake with their cheers and applause.

Let the politicians bluster and bloviate, the Democrats orate from their bully pulpits…they have forgotten one simple lesson, one that President Bush learned from an early age, one his enemies both at home and abroad will never understand.

A soldier always knows.

In these times of rampant anti-American, treasonous & seditious acts by the Left and their hypocritical, billionaire Neo-Marxist ass-clowns in the Lamestream Media & WhoreyWood, it’s refreshing to see a story, such as this one, about a US company supporting the efforts of our incredible troops over in the steaming cesspool of Southwest Asia.

(Note: The article will be below the fold to save space for those of you too lazy to click the link up there. ;) )

Oh come on, things can’t be this bad with the Department of Defense:

Short of Purple Hearts, Navy tells vet to buy own

Korean War veteran Nyles Reed, 75, opened an envelope last week to learn a Purple Heart had been approved for injuries he sustained as a Marine on June 22, 1952.But there was no medal. Just a certificate and a form stating that the medal was “out of stock.”“I can imagine, of course, with what’s going on in Iraq and Afghanistan, there’s a big shortage,” Reed said. “At least, I would imagine so.”The form letter from the Navy Personnel Command told Reed he could wait 90 days and resubmit an application, or buy his own medal.After waiting 55 years, however, Reed decided to pay $42 for his own Purple Heart and accompanying ribbon — plus state sales taxes — at a military surplus store.On the day he was injured, getting a medal was the last thing on his mind. Stationed close to the front lines at Panmunjom, where peace talks were under way, Reed “was a forward observer — the one that’s up on the front line directing the artillery. I had to get to the observation point.”

Reed jumped in a Jeep and had started out when a 76-millimeter shell “comes in and hits right below the Jeep in the mud. And when it went off, it blew the Jeep over and threw me into the windshield, where I busted my cheek — you can see the scar — and I was bleeding like a stuck pig.”

“And I could see this battalion aid station, with Navy corpsmen. So this doc, this surgeon, sewed me up and he says, ‘Do you want a Purple Heart?’ That’s when I said, ‘I haven’t got time! They’re waiting for me up at the front lines,’” Reed recalled. He rushed back to duty.

About three years ago, Reed said, he started thinking that it would be nice to have the Purple Heart to pass on to his two sons or daughter, or to show to his eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

“I thought it was going to be an easy thing. Well, I found out that’s not true,” Reed said. The first response Reed got was that there was nothing in his record about the incident, and that he had to provide witness statements and other verification.

Reed located two Marine Corps buddies, who provided the statements.

“Then I started sending all this information to congressmen, senators, the president, the commandant of the Marine Corps, anybody,” Reed said. “Well, I kept getting turned down.”

“The real support I got was from Sen. (John) Cornyn.”

John Drogan, a spokesman for the Texas Republican, said Thursday that the senator’s office has now arranged for Reed to get an actual medal.

“I have word from Navy folks they have just received additional Purple Heart medals, and we are going to make sure Mr. Reed gets his,” Drogan said, adding that he could not explain why the Navy Department had no medals when the senator’s office contacted it last month.

Maj. J. DeLaRosa, a media affairs officer for the Marines at the Pentagon, couldn’t believe Reed received only the certificate.

“That’s unacceptable. ‘Out of stock’? That’s like saying, ‘We’re out of ammo.’ That’s like saying ‘The Marines are going to close tomorrow.’ It just seems a bit weird,” DeLaRosa said. “There have been a lot of guys wounded, but not to the point that we’re out of medals.”

The Department of Defense estimates that 29,098 troops have been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan through Thursday.

For his part, Reed is simply happy he finally received recognition for what happened to him that day. “That’s why I am so grateful to Sen. Cornyn.”

I just sent Mr. Reed a check for $42.00 because there is no excusable reason why this man – after waiting 55 years just to be awarded this medal — should have to pay for it out of his own pocket or wait another minute for the government to get their shit together.  (Okay, that is going to take longer than a minute.)

I have heard of this happening before.  I have been a volunteer at the VA here in Seattle for fifteen years. I have seen this kind of thing about twenty times.  It is disgraceful.

This is what’s it’s about, the cost of Freedom and all that which we hold dear:

Caisson

Sentry

I couldn’t do a better job than Trace Adkins, besides my vision tends to get blurry writing about this peaceful piece of property, overlooking the river.

Arlington

I never thought that this is where I’d settle down.
I thought I’d die an old man back in my hometown.
They gave me this plot of land,
Me and some other men, for a job well done.

There’s a big White House sits on a hill just up the road.
The man inside, he cried the day they brought me home.
They folded up a flag and told my Mom and Dad:
“We’re proud of your son.”

And I’m proud to be on this peaceful piece of property.
I’m on sacred ground and I’m in the best of company.
I’m thankful for those thankful for the things I’ve done.
I can rest in peace;
I’m one of the chosen ones:
I made it to Arlington.

I remember Daddy brought me here when I was eight.
We searched all day to find out where my grand-dad lay.
And when we finally found that cross,
He said: “Son, this is what it cost to keep us free.”

Now here I am, a thousand stones away from him.
He recognized me on the first day I came in.
And it gave me a chill when he clicked his heels,
And saluted me.

And I’m proud to be on this peaceful piece of property.
I’m on sacred ground and I’m in the best of company.
I’m thankful for those thankful for the things I’ve done.
I can rest in peace;
I’m one of the chosen ones:
I made it to Arlington.

And everytime I hear twenty-one guns,
I know they brought another hero home to us.

And I’m proud to be on this peaceful piece of property.
I’m on sacred ground and I’m in the best of company.
We’re thankful for those thankful for the things we’ve done.
We can rest in peace;
‘Cause we are the chosen ones:
We made it to Arlington.

Yeah, dust to dust,
Don’t cry for us:
We made it to Arlington.

To Jack Murtha, John Edwards and the rest of your ilk, you know who you are. You aren’t fit to look at, let alone touch this sacred ground, bought and paid for by much better men than us all.

In a fitting and proper salute to those we honor today, RadioCIA will be airing an appropriate special Memorial Day-2007 show tonight at 9 pm CT. In addition to our music, I managed to choke out a few fitting words honoring those that have made the Ultimate Sacrifice before, and the many to come.

(Hat tip to LC Azygos for the link.)

The words that Senator Joe Lieberman spoke the other day need to be chiseled into stone and said stone needs to be dropped onto the heads of every pol in DC. (As well as every LefTardian Drooling Underachiever & RINO around the world.)

We here in The Imperial Dungeon™ Game Room™ don’t give a flyin’ rat’s shaved left testicle what Joe’s stances are on anything else at this point. Every other political squabble doesn’t mean shit if there’s nothing left to squabble over if we let the Assholes For Allah™ win & they destroy Western civilization.

Read it. That’s an Imperial Order of the Umpteenth Degree™.

…and you ought to go read the whole thing, but here’s the money quote:

Whenever I’ve seen one of those “Gun-free Zone” signs, especially outside of a school filled with our youngest and most vulnerable citizens, I’ve always wondered exactly who these signs are directed at. Obviously, they don’t mean much to the sort of man who murdered 32 people just a few days ago.

Take Rudy McRomney and shove them up your arses, dickheads.

Fred’s got my vote, whether he runs or not.

Better make him run, or you can say “hello” to president Hildebeest, because I am not changing my mind.

As to Jack Murthafucker, Nancy Lugosi and the rest of al-Qaeda’s allies in Congress:

GO FUCK YOURSELVES, SHITBIRDS!

We’ve got a boot for your asses as well.

Hat Tip and a Big Hug to perpetual lurker (and this Correspondent’s Better-Half) LC Country Red:

Hero

Nuff’ Said— G_d Bless them all…..

[And as I read the caption to the picture, learning that that innocent child’s entire family was murdered by the American Left’s “Minutemen”, I am once again reminded of the fact that the only way we can put our Left Column to good use is to use them for target practice. May they all die horrible deaths — Emp. M.]

Good Evening.

Today we’re going to talk about CPL Jason Dunham.

Why? Because CPL Jason Dunham is special?

No. We’re going to talk about this young Marine because he isn’t. We’re going to remember him because he was the epitome of everything that made this nation great. We’re going to remember him because he wasn’t special, because in being not special, he is what gives every one of us hope.

He suffered the wounds that would later take his young life on April 14th, 2004, when he threw himself on a grenade for his comrades, an act of truly selfless courage that later, posthumously, earned him the Congressional Medal of Honor.

It must seem somewhat sacrilegious to suggest that this act wasn’t special, but it isn’t.

CPL Jason Dunham wasn’t trying to establish a legacy when he sacrificed himself for his buddies, he wasn’t making a statement, he wasn’t a glory hound looking for fame and fortune.

He was just a Marine doing what every soldier knows to do, which is to put himself second to the mission. And he did it. Without hesitation, because if he had hesitated even for a second, his buddies would most likely not have been alive today.

He wasn’t looking for book deals, speaking engagements or glowing reviews in history books. He was just looking out for his brothers next to him.

It cost him his young life, and it cost us a hell of a lot more by losing somebody like him, but it didn’t matter. He did what he knew that he had to do, and he did it promptly.

Greater love hath no man…

So we remember CPL Dunham because, in today’s instant gratification society where nothing is more important than the Holy Self™, he chose his friends.

We remember CPL Dunham because he showed us that this nation, this generation, that WE aren’t yet lost. He showed us that true love still exists, and he gave us all an example to follow. In doing so, he did much more than save his unit.

We remember him because, if we don’t, nobody will. The MSM has no need for heroes, the MSM has no need for people showing that sacrifice can be a good thing, that there are things more important than the Almighty Self™.

We remember him because we have to.

Because if we FORGET, we will truly have lost.

Semper Fi, brother.
