I believe this would fit under the definition of irony....

It would appear that the day before the chosen one accepted his Nobel Peace Prize, the Ruskies launched a practice ICBM from a submarine near Norway.

Close enough, it would seem, that
(t)he failure of a new Russian intercontinental ballistic missile during testing was the cause of the spectacular, spiraling, blue lights seen early Wednesday in the skies over northern Norway, analysts said.
How ironic that the man who's stated goal is to rid the world of nuclear weapons was greeted in Norway with a (failed) test of a Russian ICBM. I'm sure that the test's timing was purely coincidental....

How to lose a war

This, my friends, is how you lose a war.

No, not because Blackwater was used to conduct operations against our enemy.

But when you start suggesting that killing and capturing al qaeda turds is somehow a bad thing, it's a dangerous, slippery slope to the end of the road.

I don't give a damn if it was Delta, Rangers, SEALs, Recon, line infantry, airborne units or, dare I say, contractors who are killing the bad guys. That's getting the job done that needs doin', plain and simple.

But when you start suggesting that a relationship between the CIA and Blackwater to kill or capture terrorists is somehow a negative, we're screwed.

We've been screwed since last November anyway, but this is just more icing on the cake.

Nobel peace prize: Norwegians incensed over Barack Obama's snubs

Maybe the chosen one hurt his back with all the bowing he did on his Asian trip and wasn't up for another bow to another monarch?

Obama's 47 Percent Approval Lowest of Any President at This Point

When people ask why the messiah is in such a hurry to completely alter the course of the United States, all you need to do is take a look at the latest Gallup Poll. At 47% approval, he's lower than anyone else has been at this point in their presidency since Gallup started when FDR was president.

The reason Obama is in such a hurry is that he knows time is short and he needs to get as much done as he can in as short a period of time possible.

As part of my job, I had the opportunity a year or two ago to conduct an oral history interview with a gentleman who had served in the US Navy during WWII and was a survivor of Pearl Harbor.

It was one of the most interesting, entertaining, and downright sad interviews that I have conducted - sad mostly because his generation is dying off and not many people remember any more.

In fact, this fellow passed away himself a few weeks ago, right after Veteran's Day.

I'm glad I got to know him and proud I had the opportunity to share his memories from that day.

I won't forget.
