Pentagon Reacts to Wikileaks Document Release

Pay attention to the Pentagon spokesperson. She is highly decorated with five rows of ribbons.



The Pentagon announces its reaction to the Wikileaks action, with a female USAF staff sergeant reporter, wearing five rows of campaign ribbons, the same as General George Patton.

Hold on, I miscounted, Patton is only wearing four.



The young gal, modestly in her twenties, is wearing what used to be called a class "B" work uniform.

When Eisenhower wore his Class "A" work uniform, he wore three rows of ribbons.



It has been a little quiet for the air force lately since the glory days of bombing Belgrade and Baghdad, so you have to wonder what the young gal has done and where she has been to be so heavily weighted with ribbons.

She must have been all of fifteen at the time.

Perhaps we should see what General Curtis LeMay was wearing in his prime. He was after all in the air force as well.



Oops, he is still one shy at four rows.

Still, the air force has a greater mission and used to remind us to "Sleep tight tonight, your airforce is awake".



Sleep well, all is under control.

    The company a friend of mine works for does some business in China and from him I learned about the following.

    Briggs and Stratton built a factory to produce its engines in China, for sale in China. After they had operated it for about 18 months, selling their engines very successfully, they decided to do some expanded research and find out what kinds of applications the engines were being used for. They hired someone to do a survey.

    The survey showed that there were THREE TIMES as many of the engines in use in China as B&S had actually sold. Investigation found out why.

    B&S had been running the factory on 1 eight hour shift. Or so they thought. The Chinese operating the factory were running three shifts, 1 for B&S and 2 for them, with separate electrical meters and suppliers so to disguise the fact.

    Americans doing business with China have discovered that they cannot be trusted in any way. You have to stay on top of them and closely monitor their activities – even when you own the factory. A friend of mine who has been to China to launch US made commercial satellites says they will never be a threat to us because they never tell the truth, not to us, not to themselves.

    It appears that through its long period of feudalism the Japanese learned how to be loyal and truthful to a local ruler – or to a company. Through their years under communism the Chinese learned to lie to the commissar – or anyone else.

    Educating muslims on the Western dime in our colleges is a categorical error.

    That is the talent pool that ‘leaks’ terrorists for AQ.

    Sayyid Qutb being the archetypal islamist:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sayyid_Qutb

    Under no circumstances should anyone be under the illusion that such graduates, the peaceful, practical ones, have great and positive economic utility in the muslim states. The very nature of those societies slots aspirants to jobs based upon family connections — not academic graces.

    Thusly, M. Atta turned to rage against the West because Araby failed him. No despot needed his services to build Sim City upon his back lot.

    The frustrated architect in him realized that he ought try anti-architecture: destroying the most iconic structures on Earth.

    Thusly free trade: the World Trade Center…

    And democracy: US Capitol Building… ( whoops, it’s virtually empty this early…)

    Fall-back — Defenders of the status quo: the Pentagon…

  7. “I don’t know this guy from Adam, but Carolla’s humor—fearlessly crass, shamelessly honest and irresistibly funny—sucks out like liposuction the layers of fatty pride to expose the often warped and wounded psyche buried deep within the modern American male.”
    --Ken Burns
    Product Description
    A couple years back, I was at the Phoenix airport bar. It was empty except for one heavy-set, gray bearded, grizzled guy who looked like he just rode his donkey into town after a long day of panning for silver in them thar hills. He ordered a Jack Daniels straight up, and that's when I overheard the young guy with the earring behind the bar asking him if he had ID. At first the old sea captain just laughed. But the guy with the twinkle in his ear asked again. At this point it became apparent that he was serious. Dan Haggerty's dad fired back, "You've got to be kidding me, son." The bartender replied, "New policy. Everyone has to show their ID." Then I watched Burl Ives reluctantly reach into his dungarees and pull out his military identification card from World War II.

    It's a sad and eerie harbinger of our times that the Oprah-watching, crystal-rubbing, Whole Foods-shopping moms and their whipped attorney husbands have taken the ability to reason away from the poor schlub who makes the Bloody Marys. What we used to settle with common sense or a fist, we now settle with hand sanitizer and lawyers. Adam Carolla has had enough of this insanity and he's here to help us get our collective balls back.

    In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks is Adam's comedic gospel of modern America. He rips into the absurdity of the culture that demonized the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, turned the nation's bathrooms into a lawless free-for-all of urine and fecal matter, and put its citizens at the mercy of a bunch of minimum wagers with axes to grind.

  18. I suspect the military will have to pony up its share of budget regardless of which party is in power.

    This economy could be bouncing along the bottom for a decade or more and the hard spending decisions will be made. Of course one side is ready to wring more taxes out of the country first, but inevitably the military, medicare, medicaid and Obamacare will all see large cuts.

    The Pentagon's real problem is not monetary though, it's the toll repeated deployments have taken on troops and their families.

    “The Bushehr power plant is a major project which will help us to take one step toward future alternative energy supplies,” he said, according to the semiofficial IRNA news agency. “We will also pursue our peaceful nuclear activities in other areas.” He did not give details.

  30. It's the Occupation, Stupid

    Extensive research into the causes of suicide terrorism proves Islam isn't to blame -- the root of the problem is foreign military occupations.

    Mr Pape has studied this suicide bombing phenomenon for years now. He has written about it, before.

    The premise does seem to makes sense, one has to wonder, just how many Japanese Islamoids were there, to pilot those airplanes used in their infamous kamikaze attacks?

    ReplyDelete
  31. From 1980 to 2003, there were 343 suicide attacks around the world, and at most 10 percent were anti-American inspired. Since 2004, there have been more than 2,000, over 91 percent against U.S. and allied forces in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other countries.

    Yes, these attacks are overseas and mostly focused on military and diplomatic targets. So too, however, were the anti-American suicide attacks before 2001. It is important to remember that the 1995 and 1996 bombings of U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia, the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen were the crucial dots that showed the threat was rising prior to 9/11.
    Today, such dots are occurring by the dozens every month. So why is nobody connecting them?

  32. U.S. military policies have not stopped the rising wave of extremism in the Muslim world. The reason has not been lack of effort, or lack of bipartisan support for aggressive military policies, or lack of funding, or lack of genuine patriotism.

    No. Something else is creating the mismatch between America's effort and the results.

    For nearly a decade, Americans have been waging a long war against terrorism without much serious public debate about what is truly motivating terrorists to kill them.

    ReplyDelete
  33. A simple narrative was readily available, and a powerful conventional wisdom began to exert its grip. Because the 9/11 hijackers were all Muslims, it was easy to presume that Islamic fundamentalism was the central motivating force driving the 19 hijackers to kill themselves in order to kill Americans. Within weeks after the 9/11 attacks, surveys of American attitudes show that this presumption was fast congealing into a hard reality in the public mind. Americans immediately wondered, "Why do they hate us?" and almost as immediately came to the conclusion that it was because of "who we are, not what we do." As President George W. Bush said in his first address to Congress after the 9/11 attacks: "They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other."

    Thus was unleashed the "war on terror."
    ...

    There's just one problem: We now know that this narrative is not true.

  38. "Elsewhere, Pape has continued his criticisms of the idea that wars can be won through air power alone.

    He argues that the use of air power for punishment, that is, attacking civilian and economic targets (such as in Operation Rolling Thunder or the firebombing of Japan in 1945), has almost universally failed in coercing targets.


    Instead, Pape suggests that successful usage of air power has come when it is used against conventional military targets and denies the target the ability to achieve their aims (such as in Operation Linebacker).

    In an auction of a special kind of five-year Treasury bond, investors paid $105.50 for every $100 of bonds the government sold — agreeing to pay the government for the privilege of lending it money.

    But these aren’t just any bond, they’re bonds insured against inflation. The securities, called TIPS or Treasury Inflation Protected Securities, “are indexed to inflation in order to protect investors from the negative effects”

    The interest rate that these TIPS are going to pay will be 0.55% less than the Consumer Price Index’s rate of increase between now and 2015.

  80. American History...

    One Standard for all


    Bounties were sometimes paid as rewards for killing Native Americans. In 1862, a farmer received a $500 bounty for shooting Taoyateduta (Little Crow). In 1856 Governor Isaac Stevens put a bounty on the head of Indians from Eastern Washington, $20 for ordinary Indians and $80 for a "chief". A Western Washington Indian, Patkanim, chief of the Snohomish, obligingly provided a great many heads, until the Territorial Auditor put a stop to the practice due to the dubious origins of the deceased.[

  81. The US should not be involving itself in the internal political affairs of foreign lands.

    We should be withdrawing, not getting in deeper.

    Especially since we are not going to intercede in Pakistan or Saudi Arabia, to seek out and destroy the infrastructure that supported the 11SEP01 raids upon US.

    Without that as cause, we have little business to be involved militarily in the Islamic Arc.

    They view ONE JEW life as equal to as many as 2000 arab children

    Let's use the Arab/Islam standards for life from now on...

  87. NUKE it!
    The Black Stone (called الحجر الأسود al-Hajaru-l-Aswad in Arabic) is a Muslim relic, which according to Islamic tradition dates back to the time of Adam and Eve. It is the eastern cornerstone of the Kaaba, the ancient sacred stone building towards which Muslims pray, in the center of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.[1] The Stone is a dark rock, polished smooth by the hands of millions of pilgrims, that has been broken into a number of fragments cemented into a silver frame in the side of the Kaaba. Although it has often been described as a meteorite, this hypothesis is now regarded as doubtful.[2]
    Muslim pilgrims circle the Kaaba as part of the Tawaf ritual of the Hajj. Many of them try, if possible, to stop and kiss the Black Stone, emulating the kiss that Islamic tradition records that it received from the Prophet Muhammad.[3] If they cannot reach it, they point to it on each of their seven circuits around the Kaaba.[4]

    the Roman general Scipio Aemilianus Africanus plowed over and sowed the city of Carthage with salt after defeating it in the Third Punic War (146 BC), sacking it, and forcing the survivors into slavery.

    Spain and Portugal also did this

    In Spain and the Spanish Empire, salt was poured onto the land owned by a convicted traitor (often one who was executed and his head placed on a picota, or pike, afterwards) after his house was demolished.


    Stone memorial to the Duke of Aveiro's punishment in Santa Maria de Belém, Lisbon.
    Likewise, in Portugal, salt was also poured onto the land owned by a convicted traitor. The last known event of this sort was the destruction of the Duke of Aveiro's palace in Lisbon in 1759, due to his participation in the Távora affair (a conspiracy against King Joseph I of Portugal).



    SO why not do this to GAZA?

    ONE STANDARD for ALL

    Or maybe Israel should HAMA the HAMAS

    The Hama massacre (Arabic: مجزرة حماة‎) occurred in February 1982, when the Syrian army bombarded the town of Hama in order to quell a revolt by the Muslim Brotherhood. An estimated 17,000 to 40,000 people were killed, including about 1,000 soldiers,[1] and large parts of the old city were destroyed. The attack has been described as possibly being "the single deadliest act by any Arab government against its own people in the modern Middle East".[2]

  116. For nearly a decade, Americans have been waging a long war against terrorism without much serious public debate about what is truly motivating terrorists to kill them.

    Sort of similar to the progressive confusion over why USA heartland clings bitterly to their guns and religion? We just don't understand the obsessive attachment to Koran and kaboom technology?

    Or might we be better advised to assume said attachments do not easily deconstruct under superficial analytics, not to mention presumptions of superiority (there must be another reason!!), that preclude conclusions having any relation to 'they really really mean it - no misunderstanding.'


    Returning to an earlier point, say and debate what you want/will in public. The important conversations, I assume, are being conducted in private and include statements to various Saudi royalty to get your MF'ing radicals under control because the next group of jumpers from an exploding skyscraper won't be Americans.

  126. The censorship of music in Afghanistan

    by Dr John Baily
    Freemuse (Freedom of musical expression), London, April 24, 2001

    The people of Afghanistan under Taliban rule are subjected to an extreme form of music censorship. The only musical activity permitted is the singing of certain types of religious song and Taliban "chants".

    The report traces the gradual imposition of music censorship since 1978, when the communist government of Nur Ahmad Taraki (the correct name is Noor Mohammad Taraki -RAWA) came to power in a violent coup d'etat. During 14 years of communist rule, music in Afghanistan was heavily controlled by the Ministry for Information and Culture, while in the refugee camps in Pakistan and Iran all music was prohibited in order to maintain a continual state of mourning. The roots of the Taliban ban on music lie in the way these camps were run.

    In the Rabbani period (1992-1996) music was again heavily censored. In the provincial city of Herat, which the author visited for 7 weeks in 1994, professional musicians had to apply for a licence, which specified the kinds of material they could perform, songs in praise of the Mujahideen and songs with texts drawn from the mystical Sufi poetry of the region. This cut out a large amount of other music, such as love songs and music for dancing. The licences also stipulated that musicians must play without amplification. Music could be performed by male musicians at private parties indoors, but Herat's women professional musicians were forbidden to perform. While in theory male musicians could perform at wedding parties or Spring country fairs, experience had shown that often in such cases the agents of the Office for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, religious police, had arrived to break up the party and confiscate the instruments, which were usually returned to the musicians some days later when a fine or bribe had been paid.

    There was very little music on local radio or television in Herat. Broadcasting time was anyway severely curtailed, to about two hours per day. If a song was broadcast on television one did not see the performers on screen but a vase of flowers. Names of performers were not announced on radio or television. Instrument maker had re-opened their businesses, and the audio cassette business continued, with a number of shops in the bazaars of Herat selling music cassettes, some of locally recorded Herat musicians.

  131. Our old friend Spengler writes:
    Last week, I heard a prominent conservative commentator brag to a conservative gathering (off the record) that the surge reduced American war deaths in Iraq in July 2008 to only one, while the military's monthly average rate of accidental death was three. What about Iran?, the conservative sage was asked. The American public simply isn't ready for the consequences of bombing Iran, he explained: if we were to attack Iran's nuclear facilities, the result would be a terrible outbreak of terrorism, along with a spike in oil prices.

    I stared into my souffle. How did it come to the point that America had to fear retaliation by Iran? In effect, this conservative opinion-maker conceded what I have alleged since 2004, in this publication and elsewhere, that Washington had a de facto agreement with Iran: do not make trouble in Iraq, and we will let you build up your nuclear capacity as well as your terrorist capabilities elsewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  132. A little more Spengler:
    The chairman of President Barack Obama's Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, admitted as much in a March 16, 2009, interview with Charlie Rose: "What I worry about in terms of an attack on Iran is, in addition to the immediate effect, the effect of the attack, it's the unintended consequences. It's the further destabilization in the region. It's how they would respond. We have lots of Americans who live in that region who are under the threat envelope right now [because of the] capability that Iran has across the Gulf. So, I worry about their responses and I worry about it escalating in ways that we couldn't predict."

    In return for a temporary truce in Iraq - a truce that is now crumbling as Iran inserts its military proxies into the Baghdad government and the Sunni fighters defect - America allowed Iran time to possibly produce weapons-grade uranium, stock Hezbollah in Lebanon with advanced missiles, and deploy terrorist networks wherever it wanted.

  133. What is funny, is that I read what Israeli politicos write. Read the JPost online, even Haaretz on occasion.

    When I read what Moshe Arens wrote, last June, it struck a cord. Here was a famous Israeli, a former immigrant to the US, a past US citizen, the Israeli ambassador to the US and one of its' Defense Ministers.

    Certainly not a hater of Israel, nor an anti-Semite.

    Yet what he writes presents itself as the first step in a long term solution. It makes sense.

    He does not advocate for genocide.
    No, he advocates for inclusion of Arabs into Israeli society, an end to Jim Crow policies, there.

    Israel's biggest challenge: Integrating its Arab minority

    Not a final solution, by any means.

    The biography of Moshe Arens, he provides real food for thought and the first step in a way forward.

    The government seems to show little interest in Israel's Arab citizens, who represent nearly one-fifth of the country's population. Rarely does a cabinet member or the prime minister visit Arab towns and villages. Minority Affairs Minister Avishay Braverman's proposal to grant financial assistance to some Arab municipalities represents a modest beginning in dealing with the challenge of integrating Israel's Arab citizens into society.

    But this only scratches the surface. Should the government seriously consider the subject, it must adopt a two-pronged policy. It needs a long-term program that will benefit Israel's Arab citizens, one that would include improving Arab schools, affirmative action for the Arab community in employment, incentives for doing military and national service, and an emergency program to deal with the Negev Bedouin, the most disadvantaged sector of Israeli society. At the same time, legal measures need to be taken against seditious and subversive organizations preaching violence and support for Israel's enemies. It is late, but not too late.

    Beyond that, spreading the rock's dust around the Globe, just like the KT boundery layer, would give the Islamoids the idea they had rightful title to the entire whirled, given to them by the presence of Allah's rock, everywhere.

  139. Good news on two fronts!

    Wall Street Journal -

    BP PLC will likely have to shut down a natural gas field in the North Sea that it jointly owns with Iran, a sign that tough new European sanctions are beginning to affect the Islamic Republic's oil and gas sector.

  144. Israel must integrate its Arab citizens but Jews mustn't settle in the West Bank. And never mind that Christians have been driven out in the past 15 years.

    The fact is that prior to the Intifadas, Palestinians enjoyed a much higher standard of living as they coexisted relatively well with the Jews. They crossed the borders back and forth daily as they worked in the building trades and other occupations. Unfortunately, they were seduced and coerced by Arafat and the thugs of the PLO. They brought misery upon themselves and where their suicide bombings failed they now rely on lies, propaganda and waxing Islam to promote their cause which in the extreme is the destruction of Israel.

    Rat is silent on the 1 million Jews driven from their lands that the Arabs, the current occupier, threw the Jews out from. Rather Rat obsesses about Israel destroying it'sself by allowing millions more arabs to settle into the only jewish state in the world, and the 1st one in 2000 years.

    There are no Jim Crow laws in israel, in Jordan, Palestinian lands, Arabia and any and all of the other 21 arab nations? It's down right evil it's treatment of minorities..

    Sudan? Arabs murder 100's of thousands and rape just as many africans, but that's ok for Rat...

    Israel is the pirate...

    One standard for Israel, no standards for anyone else...

    israel has people as citizens from every nation on the planet..

    Yes, and No. It takes two to tango and the Israelis and Palestinians have been involved in a mutually destructive death dance.

    It is a real dilemma. The Palestinians are locked up, oppressed, in a boot to head kinda thing with a superior more potent force, the Israelis. Yet the Israelis are no angels - they relentlessly pursue their own agenda, seek their own gain. The Palis continually lose at that game. They are outmatched and outwitted BUT they exist, penned up in ghettos with little to look forward to but revenge. They are both, the Israelis and Palestinians, architects of their own destruction.

    What the good Admiral was also saying, whit, was that bombing Iran would just be the beginning, not the end of the troubles.
    It would be the start of a real war.

    At a Democratic fundraiser in Newton this month, offering what he called “a little bit of perspective from the Oval Office,’’ President Obama gave this diagnosis of the American political scene:

    “Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared. And the country is scared.’’

    The smug condescension in this — we’re losing because voters are panicky and confused — is matched only by its apparent cluelessness. Does Obama really believe that demeaning ordinary Americans is the way to improve his party’s fortunes? Or that his dwindling job approval is due to the public’s weak grip on “facts and science’’ and not, say, to his own divisive and doctrinaire performance as president...
