We'd invite Hitler to speak

No comment on my part required.

God love the Marines

H/T to this great site.

A little levity

Ok, that last post got my blood pressure going. For a little comic relief, check this out...

News Roundup

Lots going on here deserving of comment....

To start with, keeping it light, it would appear there's a new dance craze in good ole gay Paree. And when I say gay, I really mean gay. Come on mon amis. Ya'll are starting to come around with Sarkozy, but if you ever want to regain any sort of national pride, let's give up this Tecktonik crap.

News flash, bubba. Parachute pants went out of style in the 80s... and yeah, you look somewhat less than masculine.

Next up, Peter King hits the proverbial nail on the proverbial head. There are too many radical islamists in this country. ONE is too many. Since the vast majority of muslims consider themselves muslims first and Americans second (in stark contrast to the rest of this fine country, by the way...) and since it is a stated goal of the islamists to destroy America and create a caliphate from sea to sea, then yeah, we should be looking VERY hard at mosques and the ones that are supportive of the islamists should be shut down. Period.

Rock on, Pete.

And in the "you gotta be shittin' me" category, Oregon is adapting MEXICAN curriculum for its students. Yes, you read that right. An American state (several actually, much to my chagrin) is actually importing a curriculum from Mexico to teach its Latino students. Whatever happened to immersion? I mean, if I wanted to improve my paltry Spanish, I'd go live in Mexico or some other South American country for a while and speak nothing but Spanish until I was fluent. Is there a better way to do this? So clearly, this program is not intended to teach the students English. If it was, you wouldn't see any of this touchy feely bullshit. Instead, the kids would be taught in English, and English only. My grandparents on my mother's side were first generation Italian Americans. I heard several accounts growing up from my grandfather who told me if his father ever caught him speaking Italian outside of the house, he would get a massive ass whipping. It was quite clear to my grandfather that it was learn English, or else. Where did those days go?

Switching subjects before I pop a blood vessel, the punk in chief of Iran is somehow surprised that we would be offended by his visit to the WTC. He says, and I quote "his intention was only to show respect." Here's the question, slimeball - respect to who? The terrorists who flew the planes? This guy is a total thug, the Hitler of our time, and we're STILL going to let him come into the country. Insane.

And finally, is anyone really surprised that another Clinton fundraiser is behind bars? I'm sure the Hildabeast will get a pass from our chums in the mainstream media, but I mean, come on people - wake up!

Nice headline

You'd think someone at the Chattanoogan would see this and go, "Hmmm. Maybe not a great layout."

Iran tests new homemade fighter jets

The jets are called Saegheh, part of Iran's generation of Azarakhsh fighters, the report said.

Both words mean lightning in Farsi.

Iranian defense officials said the new aircraft are similar to the U.S. F-18 fighter plane but more powerful, although technical comparisons weren't given.
By "more powerful" they mean "explodes more easily when shot down from 100 miles away by U.S. fighters."

Glad I could clear that up for you.

Iran Leader Denied on WTC Wreath Request

Why we let this jackass into the country at all is absolutely beyond me.

His plane should be shot down as soon as it leaves Iranian airspace.

France warning of war with Iran

Well, if this isn't a sign of the impending Apocalypse, I don't know what is. The French are rattling their plastic sabers with respect to Iran.

All kidding aside, I gotta give props to Kouchner.
French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner says the world should prepare for war over Iran's nuclear programme.
There has been quite a bit of scuttlebutt and rumor-mongering with respect to American plans for a 3-6 day military offensive that would ostensibly render the Iranian military useless (or more useless than they are now). It would appear that the French also sense that a nuclear jihad would be very bad for the rest of the world.

Here's the part that scares me worse than any war with Iran: Iran with nuclear capability. Does anyone doubt that those pedantic Persians would foist their beliefs on the world on the tip of a nuclear warhead? I think this is one of those moments in history where a decisive military operation would be for the greater good of the planet. Hell, when the FRENCH think it's a good idea, what does THAT tell you? Nonetheless, it scares the crap out of me. Between the USA, Russia, Israel, Syria, Korea, Iran, India, Pakistan, and yes, China, this has all the elements of a bad sci-fi flick.

A new toy for Outlaw 13

The number of video terminals that display live imagery beamed from UAVs has jumped to 1,000, up from 200 six months ago, he said. They are installed in Stryker vehicles on their way to Iraq, and should be in Apache cockpits by next summer, said Kim Henry, a spokeswoman at the Army’s Redstone Arsenal, Ala.
Hopefully, Outlaw 13 won't have to go back to the sandbox to play with this new technology and can just fly about the hills and valleys around Central Texas with the new gadget.

On the plus side, looks like the UAV have started taking out scumbags who are busy planting roadside bombs...

When Army scouts in Iraq spotted two men planting a roadside bomb Sept. 1, they called in a nearby Hunter unmanned aircraft, which dropped a laser-guided bomb and killed the two men.
