We were just absolutely sure that Iran would be real happy to talk to The Messiah, weren’t we?
Reacting to President Obama’s call for the Iranians to “unclench their fist”, Mr Ahmadinejad called for the United States to apologise to the Iranian people “and try to repair their past bad acts and the crimes they committed against Iran”.
He added: “If someone wants to talk with us in the language that (President) Bush used … even if he uses new words, our response will be the same that we gave to Bush during the past years.”
So Ahmadinacrazy has completely absolved the Bush Derangement Syndrome verbiage. And he has a simple starting point for the lovely new sparkly diplomacy:
As proof of the desire for change, Mr Ahmadinejad said that the US should withdraw its troops from conflict zones around the world and “stop supporting the Zionists, outlaws and criminals.”
Dump Iran, Afganistan, Israel – I assume this means to provide active support as Iran make sure to kill anybody who opposes it anywhere in the world. See – diplomacy is soooooo easy.
[BO] …but, for us to devote serious diplomatic resources to get a special envoy in there, to figure out a plausible approach, and essentially make the argument to the Indians, you guys are on the brink of being an economic superpower, why do you want to keep on messing with this? To make the argument to the Pakistanis, look at India and what they are doing, why do you want to keep n being bogged down with this particularly at a time where the biggest threat now is coming from the Afghan boarder? I think there is a moment where potentially we could get their attention. It won’t be easy, but it’s important.
[Q] Sounds like a job for Bill Clinton.
[BO] Might not be bad. I actually talked to Bill, I talked to President Clinton about this when we had lunch in Harlem.
Which leads me to these questions:
1. Bill still has that office down in Harlem? Just how many days a year do you think he spends there? and what is it costing the taxpayers of the United States to maintain it and staff it and pay for the sexual harassment suits?
2. Just how far is Hillary willing to ship her priapretic excuse of a husband in order to grovel to the Obamamessiah? India and Afganistan don’t seem to be out of bounds.
3. Does anybody really think Obama is going to hang the millstone of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State around his neck? I think he’s just playing with them.
Men—-Don’t ever think that the kids running around on some university campuses protesting, breaking things and whining have anything on you. You are privileged to have that one advantage that all covet—you will know – about the goings on in Iraq, Afghanistan, Djibouti, the Philippines, the Balkans and many other places. Your head will not be filled with the empty theory of those who—in actuality know very little because they lack the intestinal fortitude to commit to anything which requires risk. I’m speaking of the snide, arrogant sort who spend all day blaming America for every wrong in the world before going home to sleep at night under that blanket of freedom provided by better men—-men like you.

All four men survived thanks to Doc Chiarini and earning the Silver Star was a special recognition for him. But he received the best tribute several weeks after returning to Camp Lejeune when he ran into one of them at 8 Ball Pizza, a corporal nicknamed Redhead.“Doc, I knew everything was going to be OK when I saw you come through the smoke,” the Marine told him.
Ducking enemy fire he ran the 200 meters to the wounded Marines. Kenny looked at him through trauma shocked eyes and asked if his arm was still there. “Some of it” he said and pointed Kenny towards the relative cover of the rear of the burning humvee. A Marine who had been blinded was busy firing wildly at the sounds of the enemy weapons. Doc Chiarini pointed him in the right direction and began tending to the other wounded men. Often times working on the wounded men with one hand and retuning suppressive fire with the other, the doc tended to his Marines.
Chiarini then walked each of the wounded Marines to the protection of the second armored humvee, providing cover fire as they moved. He made three 100 meter trips across the bullet swept battlefield retrieving his Marines. The severely wounded Kenny still remained and weak from blood loss and shock could no longer walk. With one hand Doc Chiarini carried Kenny back while he fired his M-16 with the other.
Meet the younger, meaner sibling of the MQ-1 Predator unmanned aerial vehicle: the MQ-9 Reaper.
Whereas the older UAV was designed for operations such as surveillance and reconnaissance, the primary mission for the aptly named Reaper is to be a “persistent hunter-killer” drone, the first such device at the Air Force’s disposal.
The Reaper has just begun a tour of duty in Afghanistan–that’s where it is in this picture from October 1, and where it has flown daily missions since the last week of September.
The Reaper outperforms the Predator in a number of ways. The MQ-9 can fly twice as high and nearly nine times farther, and carries a bigger munitions payload, the Air Force said.
There’s not a more deserving warrior patriot. I read of his courage under fire as written by the survivor mentioned, his fellow SEAL and best friend, Marcus Luttrell, in his book Lone Survivor. They were all incredible men, thus it was an incredible loss.
A Navy Seal from Long Island who gave his life to save three men under his command in Afghanistan is recieving a posthumous Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award
Lt. Michael P. Murphy, who grew up in Patchogue, is the first to recieve the award for service in Afghanistan, according to a Navy statement.
Murphy,�who was 29 when he died,�became the first Navy SEAL to earn the award since Vietnam, and the fourth SEAL ever to�merit the distinction.
Murphy’s 4-man team was on a mission to find a Taliban leader in the mountains of the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan when they came under fire.
Murphy was wounded, but he managed to crawl to an open area where he would be able to radio for help. He was then shot down by enemy bullets. Two others were killed in the conflagration. Due in large measure�to Murphy’s bravery, the fourth man survived.
