I’ve been stewing on this and stewing on this figuring out the right way to convey how I feel about it, and I’ve been struggling with just the right words to describe my sentiment. I read a fabulous screed by Deebow over at BlackFive, but it wasn’t until I saw the headline in a Weekly Standard piece today that quoted Lt. Col. Allen West (R-FL) on this matter. I couldn’t have said it better myself:
‘Shut Your Mouth, War Is Hell’
Yes, you got that right. Congressman West has weighed in on this flap over the Marines taking a piss on dead Taliban terrorists, sending an email to the Weekly Standard, who got his permission to print what he said. Here’s a portion of his commentary:
“All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?
“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.
Watch and enjoy, watch and enjoyers! Greta’s got the scoop here:
DECORAH, Iowa – President Obama got into a heated back and forth with a Tea Party activist who demanded to know at the end of a town hall meeting here whether or not Vice President Biden had called members of the Tea Party “terrorists” during the debt ceiling debate.
In public, Obama did not directly answer the question from Tea Party activist Ryan Rhodes about Biden. But Obama fired back that he knows better than anyone what it’s like to be slammed for his political views and was not about to accept a lecture on the topic.
“As someone who’s been called a socialist, not born here, taking away freedoms for providing health care, I’m all for lowering the rhetoric,” Obama said.
Obama did say he would discuss the matter further with Rhodes, founder of the Iowa Tea Party, after the event. And the duo was spotted in an animated conversation a few moments later.
In an interview later with Fox News, Rhodes claimed that the President insisted that Biden had not made the original comment.
This is just a short tidbit from a recent Fox News Special, hosted by Greta Van Susteren, on the Manson Family murders. Maybe I just wasn’t paying attention before, but I never knew “The Family” was admired by the Weather Underground. Hmm…
I wonder if they had any other fans in Chicago, besides leader of the Weather Underground, Bernadine Dohrn, saying her Weathermen “dig Charles Manson” for “offing those rich pigs with their own forks and knives.” Weatherman Mark Rudd went so far as to say the group adopted a 4-fingered “fork” salute, I suppose as a way to honor the monstrous murderers. Gee, who else do we know from Chicago that has a deep-seated hatred for “rich” people? I wonder….
Yes, you read it correctly… Hitler wasn’t a evil mastermind or just plain evil. What was he? According to Geraldo, it could be considered that Adolf Hitler was a mere common criminal murderer. Nothing more.
This past weekend on Geraldo’s show, Ann Coulter, Jeanine Pirro and Joe Piscopo appeared to discuss the Attorney General’s decision to move KSM and his 9/11 co-conspirators to NYC for a trial in civilian federal courts. Even Piscopo sided with Pirro and Coulter; this idea is insane.
Then comes the real surreality – Geraldo said he agreed with Holder’s decision, stating all the 9/11 terrorists did was commit 3,000+ murders. Then Ann pondered if he would feel the same about Hitler, to which Geraldo gave a stunning response: yes, he could be. WTF?
I’ve thought in the past that Geraldo was smoking crack, but this response has proven he’s smoking SOMETHING.
Maureen Santora, who lost her son, a 23-year-old FDNY firefighter, on 9/11 appeared on Neil Cavuto’s show last Friday to talk about Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to have KSM and the other 9/11 co-conspirators’s trials moved to NYC.
