It’s been a long time coming.A lot of blood..a lot of grief, the crackle of weapons fire, faces..names..videos of deaths that have sickened even the most hardened of men, creating a visceral, gut tearing hate and white hot rage.

They sought to sow seeds of terror and destruction..they were answered in soldier’s coin, one by one, the 3rd Cavalry hunted them down and wiped them out..or engaged them in battle and forced them to flee, like the craven, cowardly heartless scum that they are.

In the heat of the desert sun, over the roar of the engines, the hum of the radios..the tramp of weary feet in the streets of Baghdad, Ramadi, Al Anbar, Fallujah….over them all comes a triumphant call to victory.

A lined, weatherbeaten face, worn down by years of sandstorms, grief, fear, terror…and finally, he lifts his eyes unto God and exuberantly cries with joy.

CAN YOU HEAR HIM, O MIGHTY WARRIOR?

Hear him, ye fierce of heart..and know that your loved ones, and many you never know, are bursting with pride, our eyes filled with tears of elation,you are so far, far away…and our gratitude and love knows no limits.

Here is the sound of victory, here is what you have worked so hard for,..what you have fought for..bled for..died for…

This is why we fight.

In the Name of God the Compassionate and Merciful

To the Courageous Men and Women of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who have changed the city of Tall’ Afar from a ghost town, in which terrorists spread death and destruction, to a secure city flourishing with life.

To the lion-hearts who liberated our city from the grasp of terrorists who were beheading men, women and children in the streets for many months.

To those who spread smiles on the faces of our children, and gave us restored hope, through their personal sacrifice and brave fighting, and gave new life to the city after hopelessness darkened our days, and stole our confidence in our ability to reestablish our city.

Our city was the main base of operations for Abu Mousab Al Zarqawi. The city was completely held hostage in the hands of his henchmen. Our schools, governmental services, businesses and offices were closed. Our streets were silent, and no one dared to walk them. Our people were barricaded in their homes out of fear; death awaited them around every corner. Terrorists occupied and controlled the only hospital in the city.

Their savagery reached such a level that they stuffed the corpses of children with explosives and tossed them into the streets in order to kill grieving parents attempting to retrieve the bodies of their young. This was the situation of our city until God prepared and delivered unto them the courageous soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who liberated this city, ridding it of Zarqawi’s followers after harsh fighting, killing many terrorists, and forcing the remaining butchers to flee the city like rats to the surrounding areas, where the bravery of other 3d ACR soldiers in Sinjar, Rabiah, Zumar and Avgani finally destroyed them.

I have met many soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment; they are not only courageous men and women, but avenging angels sent by The God Himself to fight the evil of terrorism.

The leaders of this Regiment; COL McMaster, COL Armstrong, LTC Hickey, LTC Gibson, and LTC Reilly embody courage, strength, vision and wisdom. Officers and soldiers alike bristle with the confidence and character of knights in a bygone era. The mission they have accomplished, by means of a unique military operation, stands among the finest military feats to date in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and truly deserves to be studied in military science. This military operation was clean, with little collateral damage, despite the ferocity of the enemy. With the skill and precision of surgeons they dealt with the terrorist cancers in the city without causing unnecessary damage.

God bless this brave Regiment; God bless the families who dedicated these brave men and women. From the bottom of our hearts we thank the families. They have given us something we will never forget. To the families of those who have given their holy blood for our land, we all bow to you in reverence and to the souls of your loved ones. Their sacrifice was not in vain. They are not dead, but alive, and their souls hovering around us every second of every minute. They will never be forgotten for giving their precious lives. They have sacrificed that which is most valuable. We see them in the smile of every child, and in every flower growing in this land. Let America, their families, and the world be proud of their sacrifice for humanity and life.

Finally, no matter how much I write or speak about this brave Regiment, I haven’t the words to describe the courage of its officers and soldiers. I pray to God to grant happiness and health to these legendary heroes and their brave families.

From news.com.au

Sometimes, I swear, these stories write themselves. It is expected that the use of garden gnomes as a housebreaking tool will decrease from now on.

A 37-year-old man has bled to death after slipping on broken glass while allegedly trying to climb through a bedroom window in Adelaide’s south.

The fact he is dead sorta gives the “alleged” part away..

The man was almost decapitated after slipping on broken glass at a Moorong Rd property in O’Sullivan Beach about 2.10am today, South Australian police said.

Should have quit whilst he was ahead.

It is believed the man sliced his neck, which caused fatal bleeding. The house’s occupants were in the bedroom as the man, from Christies Beach, tried to enter the house, police said.

“Indications are that the man threw a garden ornament through a bedroom window which woke the occupants and … slipped and suffered a severe laceration which killed him,” Senior Constable Mick Abbott said.“The man’s death is being treated as non-suspicious.”

That’ll be good for the roses this summer.

Police were investigating the man’s death, he said. The man is believed to have used a garden gnome to break the window, Sky News reports.

Goblin breaks window. Goblin kills self trying to break into home. Give garden gnome a medal, bury goblin, write report, go home to dinner.

Case closed.

The house’s owner found the man in a pool of blood, but ambulance officers called to the scene were unable to revive him.

Garden gnome 1, Goblin 0.

All in a day’s work.

It is with great sadness that the Department of Defence announces the death of Sergeant Matthew Locke, serving with Special Air Service Regiment in Oruzgan Province in southern Afghanistan on Thursday, 25 October 2007.

He is the third soldier to die in combat in Afghanistan, and this day Australia mourns the loss of one of our best, brightest and bravest.

During his service in the Australian Defence Force, Matthew was awarded the Medal for Gallantry, the Australian Active Service Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal, the Australian Defence Medal, the United Nations Medal with the United Nations Transitional Authority East Timor Ribbon, the Iraq Clasp to the Australian Active Service Medal, the International Coalition Against Terrorism Clasp to the Australian Active Service Medal, the Infantry Combat Badge and the Returned from Active Service Badge.

For gallantry in action in hazardous circumstances as the second-in-command of a Special Air Service Regiment patrol in the Special Forces Task Group whilst deployed on Operation SLIPPER, Afghanistan, in 2006.

During the conduct of an operation, a patrol, with Sergeant Locke as second-in-command, were tasked with establishing an Observation Post in extremely rugged terrain over looking an Anti-Coalition Militia sanctuary.

After an arduous ten hour foot infiltration up the side of the mountain, the patrol was called into action to support elements of the Combined Task Force Special Forces patrol that were in contact with the Anti-Coalition Militia in the valley floor to their north.

After the engagement, Sergeant Locke’s patrol remained in their location and was the only coalition ground element with visibility of the target area.

During the course of the next day the patrol continued to coordinate offensive air support against identified Anti-Coalition Militia positions in order to further disrupt and degrade the enemy’s morale.

During the afternoon, the Observation Post became the focus of the Anti-Coalition Militia who made repeated attempts by day and night to overrun and surround the position.

In one such incident the Anti-Coalition Militia attempted to outflank the Observation Post and Sergeant Locke without regard for his own personal safety, led a two man team to locate and successfully neutralise the Anti-Coalition Militia in order to regain the initiative and protect his patrol from being overrun.

This particular incident was followed by another Anti-Coalition Militia attempt to manoeuvre to attack the patrol Observation Post from another flank.

Sergeant Locke, again with little regard for his personal safety, adopted a fire position that was exposed on high ground which dominated the planned Anti-Coalition Militia assault.

Whilst deliberately exposing himself to intense rifle and machine gun fire from the Anti-Coalition Militia, he again neutralised the lead assaulting elements whilst suppressing other Militia until the arrival of offensive air support.

Whilst still under sustained fire, Sergeant Locke then directed indirect fire to effectively neutralise another Anti-Coalition Militia advance on his patrol’s position.

The courageous and gallant actions of Sergeant Locke were instrumental in regaining the initiative from the Anti-Coalition Militia and allowing the successful exfiltration of the patrol on foot prior to first light the next day.

Sergeant Locke’s actions of gallantry whilst under enemy fire in extremely hazardous circumstances, displayed courage of the highest order and are in keeping with the finest traditions of Special Operations Command-Australia, the Australian Army and the Australian Defence Force.

WHO DARES, WINS.

LC Serena, the perpetual lurker manages to find the time to post a righteous screed on her latest experiences in the moldy halls of academia.

I must say, she seems determined to torment the pointy-headed denizens thereabouts endlessly, while performing at 100%+ academically.

It’s rather lengthy, so I’ll save the Emperor’s bandwidth and send you over to the Cigar Intelligence Agency, to read the whole thing:

In what has to be one of the most disgusting,degraded, stomach turning acts of moral equivalence,the moonbats of that “defender of freedom and human rights” Amnesty International sent a press release , asking us to plead for the lives of the Bali bombers.

A stunned silence was heard, followed by a torrent of rage, including at least fifty Australians who would like nothing better than to personally pull the trigger, and send these little monsters to the Hell they so richly deserve.

Myself amongst them.

To add insult to anguish, Amnesty have added that this is in line with the “human rights” of the condemned.

What about the human rights of the TWO HUNDRED they murdered in cold blood, you fucking quisling?????

On 12 October 2002, a suicide bomber inside the nightclub Paddy’s Pub detonated a bomb in his backpack, causing many patrons, with or without injuries, to immediately flee into the street.

Fifteen seconds later, a second and much more powerful car bomb hidden inside a white Mitsubishi van, was detonated by another suicide bomber outside the Sari Club, located opposite Paddy’s Pub

Those fortunate enough to survive the first bomb, died in the fireball that followed.

[By Alexander Maistrovoy, journalist with the Russian-language Israeli newspaper “Novosty Nedely” in Jerusalem]

According to last reports, Olmert has agreed to hand over Biblical Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians and dismantle most of settlements there.

There is not something new. On the contrary, it’s routine attempt to get rid from “occupited territories”. Last decades this desire has turned to a fixed idea of the Israeli establishment. It tries to realize it by any means: from the formal agreement to unilateral departure.

They hope to appease Arabs. However in the reality dismantling of settlements not only will not approach the peace, but will make the peace …impossible. Settlements are not an obstacle to the peace. On the contrary they are …the indicator of whether peace is possible in the Middle East.

The core of the problem in the Middle East isn’t settlement activity, boundaries, refugees, Jerusalem, or terror but that most Arabs — not only in Saudi Arabia and HAMAS, but Egypt and FATH too - refuse to recognize the legitimacy of a Jewish State. They refuse to recognize the legality of the Jewish presence here, if it is not more than a group of inoffensive ultra-orthodox Jews. They refuse to see in Israel the fulfillment of the prophecies, inscribed in sacred books of all monotheistic religions, including Koran, and don’t want to see any link between the Jewish State and the Kingdoms of David and Solomon. And what is more, they deprive Jews of their history and connection with Palestine altogether, declaring that Jerusalem Temples are “fiction”, and calling Jews descendants of Kyzars, African Berbers, etc. Israel is thus transformed into a “colonial project” and a “malignant tumor in Arabic world.”

Islam is unwilling make long lasting peace with such an “artificial” formation. Only a temporary settlement — a “hudna” — is to be considered.

Give us more, O Emperor! »

A soldier knows a comrade in arms.

A soldier knows who he can trust.

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.

Hat Tip to LC Mrs. M ITT™ for the linky love.

Not that it should come as a surprise to any of our loyal readers, Iran has always been and continues to be the real puppet-masters of the middle east Ass-Spelunkers-For-Allah™. Finally, FINALLY the Noodlespine-Roveless administration begins to turn up the heat on the Turbaned Tehran Tumblefucks.

U.S. Eyes Terror Tag For Iranian Force

The U.S. government is involved in intense discussions over naming all or part of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist group in a move that would effectively declare “open season” on the organization, a senior official told CNN.

Open Season on terrorists? Where can I get my license and is there a bag limit?

If made, the designation would come in the form of an executive order from President George W. Bush, the State Department official said.

Such a move would allow the Treasury Department to go after the finances of the group and those who do business with it.

Beautiful, a bit of a financial squeeze of Iran could go a long way to reduce the “Have AK, Will Travel” insurgency and arms supply in Iraq and Afghanistan. Definitely a “Good Thing”.

“It would basically declare open season on these guys,” the official said, adding that the move is being taken because of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) support for “all the bad actors” — insurgents in Iraq, the Taliban in Afghanistan and other terrorist groups in the Middle East like Hezbollah and Hamas.

Hezbollocks and Hamassholes too? I’m liking this even more. The Palis are only a squeeze or two away from starving anyway.

The move is “three-fourths done but the devil is in the details,” the official said. An internal decision has been made to take some action, but there is still debate on whether to designate the entire IRGC or just the elite Quds Force.

“We need to decide whether to go for the sledgehammer approach of the larger group or the laser method of just going after the Quds Force,” the official said.

C’mon W, just dig down deep, find at least one of those shriveled nads and go for the “10-Pound Sledge” approach.

Asked to comment on the reports that the Guard Corps may be named a terrorist group, National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe would only say:

“It’s not appropriate for us to discuss potential future actions. We continue to urge Iran to play a constructive role in the region, and to stop providing support to terrorist organizations.”

Don’t hold your breath on them playing along with anything, but this move might get their attention, especially if W decides to continue along with the obvious folllow-on plan to the squeeze play.

Although most in the administration wants to go for the whole group, some want to tone it down a bit to soften the anticipated criticism from European allies, the official said.

Foggy-Bottom, pin-striped, pusillanimous pus-bags are sucking their thumbs over losing their best butt buddies in the EUrinal.

For months, U.S. officials have contended that Iranian agents, from the Quds Force, are helping train and equip militants in Iraq and have been supplying armor-piercing explosively formed penetrators to insurgents that have been used against U.S. forces. Iran has denied these assertions.

Tell us something we don’t know, Skippy.

The discussions come amid increased pressure by Congress to take tougher measures against Iran, including a possible divestment campaign. According to the official, the move by the administration could blunt any action in Congress which might tie the administration’s hands.

Maybe, just MAYBE W has another card to play in the WoT.

Let’s hope this is a serious move, that’s pushed hard and fast into real policy.

Our own Jaybear recently had the pleasure of spending a day afloat aboard the USS Cleveland (LPD-7), an amphibious transport ship. He captured some nice photos of his day on the briny-blue, rubbing elbows with our fine Navy and Marine Corps personnel assigned.

Being ever the gentleman he is, Jaybear obtained some fine photos of his adventure with the blessing of the Navy’s PAO and the Major leading the attached Marine contingent, and a promise to post them up for the folks at home. Not being content with just posting the pics, Jaybear came up with a righteous web page.
