And now for something we don’t do near enough, courtesy of LC Theresa, some stories about our heroic men and women overseas.

In case you’re thinking that our airmen spend all their time playing pool and hanging around in bars, here are a couple of reports that should put you straight:

“Mean Streets”, on patrolling the streets of Baghdad and training the Iraqi cops.

“Carnage”, on just what it is that our troops and the Iraqi cops are up against.

That last article, by the way, is what Harry Reid and the Dem Cong want the Iraqis to face every single day, only they don’t want our troops helping them. It would make the Dem Cong’s friends in al-Qaeda irritated, after all, and maybe they would even go as far as to withdraw their endorsement of the Dem Cong party, which would leave Reid and Lugosi without a friend in the world.

    Fanusi,

    I think whoever wrote that first piece was at least short-sighted, at worst an absolute imbecile. Think back to the start of the war: Saddam thumbing his nose at full inspections, the sanctions being torn apart by corruption in the United Nitwits, Al-Qaeda operating in northern Iraq against the Kurds (and, without question, the blessing of Saddam), etc. etc.

    Now, the revisionist DumbasCraps want to claim that there was never any reason to go to war. Really? So why did they vote for it? Are that really that stupid? If so, what makes them more capable of running this country? Now consider leaving Iraq. The vacuum is filled by Iran — or is it? The Saudis won’t stand for that. So now we get the Iranians backing the Shia and the Saudis backing the Sunni. It will be a bloodbath, similar to post-US Vietnam. Do the Democrats want to be responsible for another genocide?

    The strategic goal of the Battles for Iraq and Afghanistan is to interdict Islamic terrorists where they live; killing them in small pieces over the next 20-30 years, and keeping them from focusing on us. Bush outlined this on September 14, 2001, (did you think he was using hyperbole) but the lack of stamina by pampered Americans has run out after only 5 of those years.

    USAF Security Forces — HUA. Those are my old troops over there. I retired because the Air Force said I had asthma and wouldn’t let me deploy. My thought: why stay if I can’t fight? So I retired. I talk to those troops about their deployments. Those who go into the battle areas want to go back. They see the progress they are making.
    There are other deployments also - those to Kuwait, Bahrain, and Qatar. Troops hate those deployments because it is like a vacation. They think to themselves “why take me away from home to sit around a pool in Bahrain?” Our troops are the only ones with “ground truth” in this battle, and they are ones ignored by the media.

    I was thinking about the term “Dem Cong”, and I would like to make a suggestion if I may…

    “Viet Cong” comes from “Cong”, a group of “Viet”namese people fighting for Evil Overlords who want to take over a perfectly good country and subvert it to their own twisted ends…

    I would suggest “Dhimm Cong”, a group of “Dhimmi” people fighting for Evil Overlords who want to take over a perfectly good country and subvert it to their own twisted ends…

    Just thinking out loud… :ponder_tb:

    The father who lost his two children, one 6 months old. I can’t wrap my head around that kind of grief. God be with them all, and God give us the strength to persevere and help them achieve the freedom they are suffering so much for.

    Don’t try, crunchie…….it’s a very unpleasant place, like a pit your soul has fallen into. I feel great sadness for this man….I can only imagine what he must feel……what would send me into a quiet fury are those seeking to use this for political advantage. Just another reason to loathe our domestic enemies.

    The Democrats in Congress believe that stability can only be established in Iraq through a political solution, although such views seem overly optimistic, like the White House’s claim four years ago that U.S. troops would be welcomed as liberators. However, U.S. citizens are worried about the White House’s mismanagement of the war since it has become evident that maintaining stability in Iraq is almost impossible. (emphasis mine)

    We have NEVER been able to jam democracy down the throats of people without a political solution. Change comes from within, not from an outside military force.

    We blew our chances for a transition to democracy right after we deposed Saddam, and we continue to blow it now.

    If we want to salvage anything out of Iraq, we need to be focusing on the political solutions, not the military ones.

    Deej, what the hell do you think we’re doing over there. We are building the infrastructure, establishing the institutions that are necessary for a democracy to take hold. The Iraqis are f’ng dying to establish that democracy. The political solution and the military solution are working hand in hand. You don’t have to “jam democracy down the throats of people” who stand in line while mortar fire brackets them so they can vote. They are literally dying for it.

    However, the dhimycrats view of the political solution is negotiating with terrorist, appeasing murderers, and betraying the sacrifice of our men and the Iraqi people.

    Surrender is not a political solution. in this war it is suicide.

    Dammit, Brother Crunchie, beat me to it.

    Deej: I don’t think you’ll find any of us here disagreeing with you that the long term solution is political, I know I don’t.

    Of course, for the political solution to take hold, we first have to establish a military solution to the cave-dwelling camel-botherers blowing people up all the time which, unfortunately, isn’t possible from Okinawa.

    If anything is responsible for the mess we’re currently facing, and mess it is, even though our brothers and sisters are doing a great job cleaning it up, it’s the dumbfucked Administration being too eager to play nation-builders to let the military side get settled first.

    OK, “dumbfucked” is a bit harsh, so I’ll back off a little. After all, we don’t really have any other experience in this sort of thing than Japan and Germany, so one might excuse our leadership for thinking, mistakenly as it turned out, that once you’ve taken care of the regular army and toppled the regime, you can go on to maintenance and nation building. That’s how it’s worked in the past.

    But it didn’t turn out that way, and the Administration has been dumbfucks in letting it take so long for them to acknowledge that fact. It’s not that they failed to predict the unpredictable, nobody can be faulted for that, it’s that they refused to accept reality as it is when it turned out they were wrong.

    Three reasons for our problems with the terrorists:

    1) One difference between Iraq and, say, Germany is that when we finally occupied Germany there wasn’t much left of it. We’d pummeled them for years, making them suffer the insufferable and, as a result, they were scared spitless of us when we took over, scared spitless of what we might do if they didn’t behave. Not to mention that the Nazis had had years to convince them that we were baby-eating, fire-breathing devils that would do unspeakable things to them if they as much as looked at us funny.

    It’s not hard to make troublemakers fall in line when all you have to do is to whisper “remember Dresden?” in their ears if they get uppity.

    In Iraq, on the other hand, it was all over almost before it had begun. You might say that our Armed Forces were too damn good for their own good.

    2) The problem now is that the Iraqis fear what the Muj will do to them if they help us more than they fear what we will do to them if they help the Muj.

    And for good reason too, since we’re not the ululating barbarians that the followers of Mo the pedophile headcase are, but that doesn’t change the facts. Under the circumstances, it’s amazing that the rank and file Iraqis dare help us at all, and it can only be seen as an enduring testimony to their immense bravery and longing for freedom and peace.

    3) Thanks to swine like Reid more interested in power than in the security of our nation, the Iraqis are, with good reason, beginning to wonder if we’re going to stick around and finish the job. Because if we aren’t, then those Iraqis are going to be left to deal with some mightily pissed off Muj when we leave, and I can’t blame them for being a little nervous about that. It’s easy for Reid, Pelousy and anybody else to say “everything will be fine if we just leave”, because they won’t be the ones left behind to deal with the payback. Just like Fat Fuck Kennedy and his traitorous fellow travelers had it easy dumping South Viet Nam. That murdering, alcoholic fuck wasn’t the one left to deal with the genocidal commies of Hanoi, even though by right he should have been.

    Add to that that the Muj are listening too. Every new stab in the back of our armed forces from Harry Pissant Reid and his Cankerous Cockholsters of Congress is cause for much cheer among the Muj. Much cheer and an added encouragement to commit more atrocities, not less. Hey, it’s working! Who can blame them for not dropping a successful strategy?

    Yes, we need a political solution. But as long as the Muj are busy blowing up all the politicians and voters they can get close to, we need a military solution to them more.

    You wouldn’t start repainting your house before you’d put out the fire either.

    Keep the oil out of terr’s mits.

    The biggest mistake so far was to believe the dem’s when they said they gave war-power to the prez, “with all conviction”.
    The next biggest mistake was jockstrap cheraq promising saddam that the fwench wouldn’t let the Americans anything bad to them, warming the tyrant’s cockles enough to kick the inspectors out one time too many.
    The next biggest was the determined ommission of the world msm of the contents and realities of allll the un resolutions leading up to go time, and the continual missile attacks on coalition aircraft.
    What deniers!
    I was last in Europe in ‘04, and even members of the German military I spoke with were skeptical when I mentioned the missiles shot at coalition guys.
    They were bringing in experts from chechnya and boz-herz to instruct.

    Everything else is just bonus chaos.

    If MY party ever found themselve recieving accolaids from the taliban, I’d drop the anchor through the hull, split the mainmast and bolt with the captains launch.

    Thatisall.

    Thank you for posting this your highness. The USAF Defenders don’t get enough credit for doing what they do every damn day. My husband is a retired Defender and my son-in-law is a just starting his career. He will see time in the cat-box before the end of the year. His brothers and sisters in arms are doing an amazing job. DEFENDERS….LOCK AND LOAD!!!!

    Being in Security Forces was a strange situation. You thought you enlisted in the Air Force until they bussed you to Camp Bullis and started handing you M-60s, 203s, LAWs, and other fun toys. We old guys trained for war in Germany though; never figured we’d end up in a desert until 1990. Godspeed the troops from this old retired cuss.
