Iraq Report

For those of you who have been pissing and moaning for a long time, lamenting the incomplete, biased, generally negative information provided from the Iraqi theater by the Mainstream Media in their efforts to guide public opinion here in the U.S. (too successfully, unfortunately)...

Hey, this sounds like ME!

It is ME!

OK, from A Redleg's Perspective comes a well written, comprehensive and informative report concerning a full tour in Iraq, writtem by Col. James B. Brown, 18th MP Brigade.

A must read.

Thank you, Col. Brown, and Redleg.

Blogroll Addition

I try to keep up with the news, especially from the Iraq/Afghanistan theaters. I have quite a few blogs listed in my left sidebar under the MilBlog heading for just this purpose. However, I find that with some it is many days between visits; there just aren't enough hours in a day to visit all as often as I'd like. Because of this, I sometimes miss a post hot of the press, so to speak.

From Blog Machine City comes this nice tidbit:

I'd like to announce a small project I've been working on for a couple of weeks, but first a little background.

There are a ton of milblogs out there today, despite increasing OPSEC concerns and the shutdown of various high-profile milbloggers like My War, This is Your War, and Armor Geddon. Keeping track of all of them is a daunting task; between the Milblog Ring, Mudville Gazette, and Milblogging.com, one can get a good picture of what's going on, but those sites didn't quite give me the view I wanted. What I really wanted was a centralized list of all the newest updates in one place, so I could browse them all easily.

Of course, technologies like RSS and Atom make this relatively easy - so I poked around and came up with this:

SIGACTS: Milblog RSS Aggregation From Around the World


Great idea. I've added this aggregation site to my blogroll. I will still try to visit all of the MilBlogs I have blogrolled, but this will help keep me up to date a little easier, I think.

Duty, and Honor

If you read only one thing this Thanksgiving Day, 2005, it should be this.

Final Salute

I thank God for the Men and Women that serve this country.

Sayonara, Idiot

Remember this guy?
Warren Community College English professor, John Daly, said that “Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors.” [...]
So, actions do indeed have consequences.
Warren County Community College adjunct English professor, John Daly resigned last night before the school’s board of trustees began an emergency meeting to discuss the professor’s fate.

Full story here. More here, and here. Thanks to Ace of Spades HQ for initial pointer.

Albert Einstein, Patron Saint

After watching clips of Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) railwhine against the recent corrections by Bush, Cheney, et al, of the 'Rats party line concerning the Big Lie, (you know, that Dubya and his people lied, LIED I tell you, about pre-war intelligence) I have come to this conclusion:

Albert Einstein is the Patron Saint of the Democrat Party!

Evidence HERE and HERE. 'Nuff said.

(Actually, I already knew this, but this is the first time I've linked the quotes)

Well, maybe not quite enough... I'm fairly certain that if Mr. Einstein added 2 and 2, he'd arrive at 4. I'm NOT certain that Sen. Reid would. Actually, I'm not at all sure that he would be able to pour piss out of his boot, with the directions printed on the heel. Come to mention it, how did he ever come to be Minority Leader of the US Senate? The minority part I understand well, it's the leader part that puzzles me. After all, he comes across as nothing more than a smaller, shriller version of... yep, John 'Swift Boat' Kerry.

Zarqawi Killed... Again?

I certainly hope it's true, this time.

Thanks to LGF for the pointer. Read the comments on LGF.

Hmmm... as I think about it, I think that it would be pleasing to have this guy killed, over and over, preferably painfully each time. Am I advocating torture here? Yes.
