Babalu Blog is calling for a boycott of Rolling Stone Birdcage Liner Magazine because they’re once again slandering the US military serving over in Afghanistan.

My question:&#160 Why would we not be boycotting this colostomy bag of a publication anyway, just out of principle?

Denizens, I’m not terribly sure how I feel about this.

So quickly has this ignited that, as I write this, there are rumors spreading on Twitter and being treated as semi-plausible by people in the know that Qaddafi’s already bugged out and left for Venezuela. There’s no evidence that it’s true — Libya’s essentially off-limits to media, so it’s impossible to tell facts from propaganda on either side — but the regime’s in enough trouble that Qaddafi’s son had to go on national TV within the last hour or so and vow, “We will fight to the last minute, until the last bullet.” Next stop: Civil war. Sides are already being chosen, in fact:

Better the devil you know?

Today’s blurb comes from the GrabBag&#153, courtesy of LC Rurik, who got it from one of his email friends via Australian Shooter Magazine&#160 this past week.

“If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq Theater of operations during the past 22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.

The firearm death rate in Washington, DC is 80.6 per 100,000 for the same period. That means you are about 25 per cent more likely to be shot and killed in the US capital, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the U.S., than you are in Iraq.

Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington.

Damned straight.

This issue has been out there for a while, but I still get riled up at the thought that some treasonous piece of scatological material get away with wanton violation of military classification rules. I get the idea that this site was founded by someone other than an American citizen, and I strongly suspect that the site is hosted outside the USA.

In my opinion, this latest dump of classifies documents constitutes an act of war, and our government should say exactly that to whatever nation is hosting the site.

Is this strong?, Am I being “over the top”?

Perhaps, but the illegal release of classified documents, especially classified military documents places our fighting men and women at increased risk. I don’t really think I am going too far.

Denizen and fellow blogger Alan K. Henderson tells us of a group of primates that apparently have formed the 187th Fighting Banana Brigade&#153.

A band of males, up to 20 or so, will assemble in single file and move to the edge of their territory. They fall into unusual silence as they penetrate deep into the area controlled by the neighboring group. They tensely scan the treetops and startle at every noise. “It’s quite clear that they are looking for individuals of the other community,” Dr. [John (UMichigan)] Mitani says.

When the enemy is encountered, the patrol’s reaction depends on its assessment of the opposing force. If they seem to be outnumbered, members of the patrol will break file and bolt back to home territory. But if a single chimp has wandered into their path, they will attack. Enemy males will be held down, then bitten and battered to death. Females are usually let go, but their babies will be eaten.

Hmmm.&#160 Wonder if that explains this?

Afghanistan’s Taliban insurgents are training monkeys to use weapons to attack American troops, according to a recent report by a British-based media agency.

Reporters from the media agency spotted and took photos of a few “monkey soldiers” holding AK-47 rifles and Bren light machine guns in the Waziristan tribal region near the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. The report and photos have been widely spread by media agencies and Web sites across the world.

Quick, someone had better resurrect Chuck Heston.

Mheh.&#160

Well, if I’m to believe the reports, Stanley McChrystal is out as the top commander in Afghanistan.

Which is appropriate, quite honestly.&#160 Fact of the matter is, even though McChrystal is bang-on right about Bambi, the UCMJ, per Blackfive, clearly prohibits what McChrystal did, which is criticize the limp, flaccid, impotent Commander-in-Chief.

I do believe that McChrystal clearly knows what he was doing.&#160 You can’t say what he said to a media outlet – even if it is&#160 Rolling Stone – and not expect that the White House won’t see it.

But maybe that was Mac’s plan all along.&#160 Either he’s so desperate for the welfare of his men that he had to find some way to get Bambi’s attention – or maybe he’s finally had enough of the Ayatollah’s dithering, dillying & dallying and just wants out.&#160 (Yes, he could have just resigned, but this makes more of an impact, I think.)

Whatever the motivation, the action speaks to Jugears McHopenchange’s sheer inability to effectively command his forces.&#160 The war in Afghanistan under Bambi’s oversight has turned decidedly negative.

Hussein Pasha’s surge, unlike Bush’s in Iraq, has all but failed in Afghanistan.&#160 Bambi is not very respected, either among his troops or amongst America’s allies.&#160 He has done nothing overseas except apologize, seemingly, for America’s mere existence to those people America rightly considers either her enemies or folks not to be trusted.

Small wonder, therefore, that most of the rest of the world believes Ear Leader to be in over his head.&#160 Even smaller wonder that morale amongst the troops in Afghanistan appears to be at a low point.

Moral has gone down the toilet. The troops are pissed about the ROE’s, they don’t like our pussy President, and they know we are just spinning our wheels.

Indeed.&#160 I shudder to think of the endgame under this scenario.

Hey!&#160 What’s up with this?

I thought the Ayatollah Obambi was going to change&#160 the way Bush’s War Machine&#153 did things!&#160 I thought we were going to fix our image abroad, like Jugears McHopenchange said&#160 we were going to do!

CRICKETS:&#160 (CHIRP!!!!!)

So.

When are we going to see Code Pink march in protest, hm?&#160 When is Cindy Shitcan, the Anti-War Whore&#153 going to set up a tent city in from of the White House and demand an audience with His Royal Highness?&#160 When are we going to hear from CAIR and Iraq Veterans Against the War, hmmmmmmmm???

MERLIN:&#160 Don’t hold your breath, m’liege.

VENOMOUS:&#160 I never do, Wizard.&#160 That’s what I’ve got you for.

MERLIN:&#160 (eep!)

Wizard does have a point, though.&#160 Five’ll get you ten we never hear a peep from the anti-war chickenshit brigades.

It’s their&#160 missles and their&#160 drones now, y’see, and their Messiah can’t possibly&#160 do anything wrong…now can he?&#160

_____________________________________________________





Lemme get this straight:&#160 We liberate their country, get rid of Hussein and his boys, let them have their say in who their leaders are, and this is the thanks we get?

Y’know, a helluva lotta Donktards kept bitching that all the war in Iraq was about was oil, that all we wanted to do was control the oil.&#160 I’m starting to think that’s what we shoulda done in the first place.

_____________________________________________________





One of the things about which B. HUSSEIN!!!&#160 Obambi loves to crow endlessly is his opposition to the Iraq War.&#160 Voted against it, it’s all Bush’s fault, get the troops out of there now, blah blah blah, ad infinitum, ad nauseam.

So it was with great. great interest that I read where, when it came to American troops staying in Iraq…he was for it, before he was agaisnt it:

WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence.

According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.

My, my, my.&#160 I wonder how that&#160 would play with the crowd over at the Daily Kossack, hmmmmmmmmm???

“He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington,” Zebari said in an interview.

Oh, I think I know, alright.&#160 The Manchurian Muslim&#153 thinks that he’s going to be able to pull the wool over our eyes and lie his skanky ass into the White House, and he wants credit for extracting all the troops out of Iraq.&#160 Until then, who gives a shit if they no longer need to be there – right, Obambi?

Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops – and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its “state of weakness and political confusion.”

Yeah, let’s forget for a moment that it’s the Executive branch&#160 that is responsible for the “status of US troops”, not&#160 the Legislative.&#160 Who cares what the Commander-in-Chief thinks about the “status of US troops”, after all?

Oh, unless that Commander-in-Chief happens to be a brie-eating surrender douchebag.&#160 Then&#160 it’s okay.

Though Obama claims the US presence is “illegal,” he suddenly remembered that Americans troops were in Iraq within the legal framework of a UN mandate.

So much for the “illegal war”, eh, Demoscum?

His advice was that, rather than reach an accord with the “weakened Bush administration,” Iraq should seek an extension of the UN mandate.

WITY&#153???&#160 Trying to take credit that isn’t his to take.

Slimy little prick, isn’t he?

While in Iraq, Obama also tried to persuade the US commanders, including Gen. David Petraeus, to suggest a “realistic withdrawal date.” They declined.

No, General, since he’s not your boss, I wouldn’t listen to him, either.&#160 Now, or after 1/20/2009.

Not like he’s gonna be your boss then, either.

Denizens, your assignment for tonight is to read Coulter’s column.

After you’re done with that,&#160 go read Misha’s rejoinder.

Note to the Demoscum in the Imperial Socialist Congress:&#160 Do this in Iraq, and we won’t be responsible for subsequent events.&#160 You have been warned.

_____________________________________________________





Barbara Simpson over at WorldNetDaily has hit it on the head concerning the Police Action in Iraq&#153.

Denizens, your assignment today is to go read it.&#160 Go.&#160 Shoo.

_____________________________________________________





(Hat tip to the Imperial Torturer&#153.)

You have got&#160 to go read this.

And that goes for every stinking one of you motherfucking treasonous bastards in the Lame Stream Media&#153.

Contrast actual coverage then with your coverage today,&#160 LSM, and then try to give me one good reason why we shouldn’t fucking waste the entire lot of you.

Thatisall.

_____________________________________________________





Denizens, as most of you know, I’m not that enamored with polls or poll ratings.&#160 These people get the same 1500 out of the same pool of 5000 or so from each coast, or so it seems.&#160 And the questions are always phrased in such a fashion as to extract answers with a decidedly leftward lean to them.

In any event, they’ve never asked me,&#160 and I suspect they’ve never asked you, either – so F.E.T.E, as the Imperial Torturer&#153 is wont to say.

That said, I’m encouraged by this latest round of numbers.

A new Fox News poll shows President Bush’s job approval numbers on the rebound.

Bush’s approval rating jumped six points over last month’s result to 42 percent among Americans surveyed.

Hmmm.&#160 Could be because:&#160 a) the Lame Stream Media&#153 is finally beginning to report that all in Iraq is not as bad as they’ve been portraying it, and/or b) the President is finally listening to his base and grudgingly vowing to protect the US-Mexico border. (Now, whether Bush comes through on that is fodder for another post, but we’ll get to that later.)

Now, he might win some more brownie points by telling Pelosi the San Fran Skank&#153, Teddy-the-Red-Nosed-Senator and Dingy Harry Reid what they can go do with themselves – but if he likes&#160 his poll numbers in the 40s…well, who am I to argue?

His disapproval numbers still outpace that figure, however, with 48 percent dissatisfied with his job performance, primarily centered on the war in Iraq.

Meaningless, when you consider that one part of that number are the fucktards who are going to hate him anyway, and the other part consists of folks who don’t think he’s hitting the Islamofascists hard enough.

Roughly equal numbers of Americans surveyed think the president either shared the best information available regarding pre-Iraq war intelligence or that he intentionally misled the country on that intelligence.

Again, one side will believe whatever bullshit the Kosnutsacks throw out there, and the other side knows that the Donk bimbos had access to the same material and came to the same conclusion, so these numbers aren’t worrisome.

Democrats are trying to pound away at this apparent uneasiness with attacks on the president’s credibility coming from the usual suspects, such as Senators Ted Kennedy, John Kerry and Joe Biden, as well as Reps. Nancy Pelosi

And this is all they have?&#160 So you understand (yawn) why I’m not all that concerned, right?

and, surprisingly, Rep. John Murtha.

Why is this surprising?&#160 It’s now come out that Congressman Cut-and-Run wanted to hand our balls to Somalia, too.&#160 A president committed to finishing the job in a war is clearly anathema to a chickenshit like Murthafucker, so WTF?

The White House has taken measured steps to move forward with its policy agendas on the war on terrorism and Iraq, immigration reform, the U.S. economic policy and other issues.

Right.&#160 And, Mr. President – just a word of advice:&#160 These numbers will continue to go up the more you listen to us&#160 – your base – and less to the Short Bus&#153 riders on the Left.

We’re the ones that brung ya, W.&#160 Do the country a favor and dance with us.

Bill Quick, the Daily Pundit, reports on an editorial over at the New York Post&#160 written by Arnold Ahlert.&#160 Misha reports that the Post&#160 apparently doesn’t like being linked to, so go see Bill’s post on the matter.

Current poll numbers – if one gives them any credence, which I don’t, necessarily – show that 58% oppose Bush’s handling of the Iraq war.

I submit to you that a goodly chunk of that number represents people who see this as turning into another Vietnam.&#160 Not because the military has bogged down there – that’s a subject open for debate – but because it’s looking more and more like we’re fighting with one hand tied behind our back, so as not to give certain people (*coughragheadedIslamofuckbastardslikeIbrihimHooperofCAIRcough*)&#160 offense.

With each passing day that we don’t&#160 hear about dozens of sorties of bombers running roughshod over an identified terrorist safe-house or other stronghold, we the American people become more & more disillusioned.&#160 President Linguinispine-ya, without realizing it, is caving in a little more each day to “Shitcan” Sheehan and the Shee-hags down there in the Crawford ditch.

Bush, you need to quit fighting this war as if you’re waiting for the cavalry to come over the hill in the form of an Iraqi constitution.&#160 Our military there is&#160 the cavalry, sir, and it needs to kick ass, take names and send the fucking ragheads on to their 72 goats.

The more you delay, the more your enemies here like the Crawford Ditch Bitch&#153 and her willing accomplices in the TSM are going to make this look like another Vietnam.

Take off the kid gloves now,&#160 Mr. President.&#160 For the good of the country.

If you’ve spent your fair share of time in the Blogosphere – or Usenet, for that matter – you’re familiar with a phenomonon known as “Godwin’s Law”, which states, in part,

once such a comparison [to Nazis] is made, the thread is over, and whoever mentioned the Nazis has automatically lost whatever argument was in progress.

Apparently, Big Dickhead Durbin, the cowardly little fuckweasel Islamofascist ass-kisser from Ill-noise, didn’t receive that particular memo.&#160 There his skanky ass was on the Senate floor yesterday, comparing our troops to Nazis.
