COALITION FORCES ELIMINATE POTENTIAL VBIED STOREHOUSE

BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition Forces raided a building southeast of Fallujah where terrorists had been operating and uncovered two dump trucks and materials to make improvised explosive devices.

In addition to the dump trucks, Coalition Forces found twenty 20-pound bags of sodium sulfate and 76 five-gallon drums of nitric acid, materials that are used to make explosives.

The materials were destroyed at the site

It would be nice if our troops could find out where these WMDs are coming from, wouldn’t it?

Terrorists Use Web Against “idiot” Americans


Terrorists Use Web Against “idiot” Americans

Sunday, April 22, 2007 4:03 AM

This is a repost of post #211.  Evidently, a Jihadist plant did not like me spreadiing the word around.  Good thing I save ALL and EVERYTHING!!

This Just In!!!

Amazing, isn’t it?  The terrorists are using the internent to appeal to the Jihadist Sympathizers, the emotionally controlled masses, to adhere to the calling of the losers in the GWOT, the terrorists.

Go fugure.  I also contend that a good potion of the moonbats on the various blogs around the world ARE terrorists themselves, well versed in the art of deceit and lies.  It causes one to sit back and dwell on that possibility, does it not?

GLOBAL JIHAD
Terrorists use Web against ‘idiot’ Americans
Fostering anti-war sentiment by posing online as citizens

By Jerome R. Corsi

Islamic terrorists are engaged in a “media jihad” in which they encourage jihadists to pose online as Americans to foster anti-war sentiment in the U.S.

According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI, a posting on the Al-Mohajroon Islamist website with the username Al-Wathig Billah provides instructions on how to infiltrate popular American Internet forums and use them to distribute jihad films and spread anti-war sentiments.

“Our experience shows that such instructions often yield compliance,” Eli Alshech, director of the Jihad and Terrorism Project at MEMRI, told WND.

The instructions direct jihadists to “raid non-political forums and trivia forums which American people favor.”

Contributors are encouraged to register as Americans and to use a purely American-sounding username: “Choose an icon that indicates that you are an American, and place it next to your nickname.”

Click the link at the top and read the whole article.  Then,  click the link within the article.  Your eyes shall be opened…unless,  naturally, you are one of “them”…then you would have to disagree and become mean-spirited in your reply…

The “distraction” technique will not work on this blog…

Sunday, April 22, 2007 12:16 AM

John Boehner has a good article at Townhall entitled, “Madame Speaker, Meet General Petraeus”.

Congress To Get An Earfull!!

“Earlier this year, top Democrats in both houses of Congress refused to attend a bipartisan briefing offered by General David Petraeus to discuss the challenges in Iraq. Next week they’ll have another chance when the General comes to Capitol Hill to brief lawmakers in the House and Senate on our progress in the Global War on Terror…”

Is it any wonder why reid has done and said what he has this past week?  The Leftinistra are about to attempt to discredit the man they unanimously confirmed to lead the war effort.

Air Power Summary

SOUTHWEST ASIA — Coalition airpower supported Coalition ground forces in Iraq and the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan in the following operations April 19, according to Combined Air and Space Operations Center officials here.

 

In Afghanistan, U.S. Air Force F-15E Strike Eagles performed a show of force near Saraw under the direction of a Joint Terminal Attack Controller.  The F-15s were assigned to observe two individuals and conduct route reconnaissance in the vicinity.

 

Near Sangin, U.S. Air Force F-15Es flew reconnaissance along the ridgelines and valleys in an area where Coalition forces were operating.  The F-15 pilots received an update that a Coalition foot patrol had encountered a mine. The foot patrol had taken cover in a building to avoid being attacked.  The F-15s were directed to fly over the building in a show of presence to deter any attack. One  F-15E also supported a convoy as it left the same area.

 

In total, 32 close air support missions were flown in support of the International Security Assistance Force and Afghan security forces, reconstruction activities and route patrols.

 

Eight U.S. Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance aircraft flew missions in support of operations in Afghanistan. Additionally, four U.S. Navy and Royal Air Force aircraft performed tactical reconnaissance.

In Iraq, U.S. F-16 Fighting Falcons performed a successful show of force for Coalition forces near Tikrit despite a sandstorm and poor visibility. The F-16s also performed counter-improvised explosive device missions in the same area.

 

In Kumayt, U.S. Air Force F-16s were requested to perform a show of force and provide overwatch for a convoy that was reportedly attacked by explosively formed projectile devices. The convoy reorganized after the attack and continued their mission.

 

The ground commander asked for aircraft to examine the area near a bridge along the convoy’s planned route.  A U.S. Air Force C-130 crew, specially equipped with a Scathe View ISR system, reported that a group of approximately 40 people were gathering at the bridge, a natural chokepoint for the convoy.  At the request of the ground commander, the F-16s performed a successful show of force and dispersed the crowd.

 

The F-16s were then assigned to observe an Iraqi Defense Force attack at coordinates provided by a JTAC. The F-16s observed two vehicles with approximately four passengers involved in activity around what appeared to be a hole in the road.  The car’s passengers then got back in their vehicles and drove off. The F-16 crews tracked the vehicles and passed on information to the JTAC.

 

Near Taji, U.S. Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt IIs provided a show of force, dispensing 30 flares in support of a Coalition convoy that was struck by an IED.  At the request of a JTAC, the A-10s provided overhead coverage of Coalition forces while a Coalition quick reaction team was en route.

 

Near Balad, U.S. Air Force F-16s searched for anti-Iraqi forces and IEDs. The F-16s were assigned by a JTAC to scan for suspected shooter locations in support of Coalition forces.

 

Other U.S. Air Force F-16s supported Coalition forces disarming an IED and receiving small arms fire near Balad. The F-16s provided reconnaissance of the location and observed Coalition forces raiding a house.

 

Near Baqubah, U.S. Air Force F-16s provided support for Coalition forces receiving small arms fire. The F-16 pilots reported a possible look-out individual on a roof top and observed someone walking to each corner of the roof. They also reported a possible IED along the Coalition forces route.

 

U.S. Air Force F-16s continued providing counter-IED and counter-insurgent overwatch near Baghdad. At the direction of a JTAC, the F-16s were assigned overwatch of Army vehicles in a convoy.

 

Royal Air Force Tornado GR-4s provided overwatch and route sweep for a Coalition convoy hit by an IED near Al Amarah.

 

The GR-4s performed a show of presence.  A JTAC reported that the ground forces were reassured by the GR-4s’ presence in the area.

 

In total, Coalition aircraft flew 49 close air support missions for Operation Iraqi Freedom. These missions supported Coalition ground forces, protected key infrastructure, provided overwatch of reconstruction activities and helped to deter and disrupt terrorist activities.

 

Fourteen U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy ISR aircraft flew missions in support of operations in Iraq. Additionally, three U.S. Air Force and Royal Air Force fighter aircraft performed tactical reconnaissance.

 

U.S. Air Force C-130s and C-17s provided intra-theater heavy airlift support, helping to sustain operations throughout Afghanistan, Iraq and the Horn of Africa. More than 150 airlift sorties were flown; more than 275 tons of cargo were delivered, and approximately 2,775 passengers were transported.

 

Coalition C-130 crews from Australia, Canada and Iraq flew in support of OIF or OEF.

 

On April 18, U.S. Air Force, French Air Force and Royal Air Force aerial refueling crews flew 38 sorties and off-loaded more than 2.2 million pounds of fuel.

BUSH: GRAND STRATEGIST (The 3rd Grand Strategy)


BUSH: GRAND STRATEGIST (The 3rd Grand Strategy)

Saturday, April 21, 2007 1:13 AM

This will drive the Leftinistra TOTALLY more Moonbatier than they already are.  What we have here is an HONEST Liberal Democrat.  Who woodathunkit?

I received this in an email from solo at The Victory Caucus.  If you are a member, you can read it here, where solo posted it.  Thread Entitled 3rd Grand Strategy.

BUSH: GRAND STRATEGIST
By Tony Blankley

More can be read here: The Boston Globe (three web pages…in the kerry/kennedy backyards)

It is very wordy and lengthy.  Naturally, this article in the Washington Times will be discounted but the book is coming out just the same and the Leftinistra will have to eat one of their own to discredit him.

To wit: The Boston Globe — the respected, liberal newspaper owned by the New York Times — ran an article last week that Bush critics may wish to read carefully. It is a report on a new book that argues that President Bush has developed and is ably implementing only the third American grand strategy in our history.

The author of this book, “Surprise, Security, and the American Experience” (Harvard Press) to be released in March, is John Lewis Gaddis, the Robert A. Lovett professor of military and naval history at Yale University. The Boston Globe describes Mr. Gaddis as “the dean of Cold War studies and one of the nation’s most eminent diplomatic historians.” In other words, this is not some put-up job by an obscure right-wing author. This comes from the pinnacle of the liberal Ivy League academic establishment.

If you hate George W. Bush, you will hate this Boston Globe story because it makes a strong case that Mr. Bush stands in a select category with presidents Franklin Delano Roosevelt and James Monroe (as guided by his secretary of state, John Q. Adams) in implementing one of only three grand strategies of American foreign policy in our two-century history.

An Open Letter To reid


An Open Letter To reid

Friday, April 20, 2007 9:52 PM

In case you are wondering, reid is not capitalized because he doesn’t deserve the respect…

Click here to read the site and for links to other letters to reid-the-moron:

Casey:

Thanks for the email. I was pretty upset about Reid’s words, I saw it on Michelle Malkin, she asked soldiers to repy. I calmed down and sent him a fairly rational email on his website and sent it to Michelle, she put it on her site with a bunch of others. I’ve also gotten an email from someone describing a new term, Iraqnophobia: the pathological fear and loathing of victory in Iraq. http://takeourcountryback.townhall.com/g/04760218-7487-46e4-bd7e-e5aeeb35fea4

Here is my letter to Senator Reid feel free to quote if you like. I’m no writer, so it’s fairly straightforward.

An Open Letter to Senator Reid on his declaration of Defeat:
Senator Reid:

When you say we’ve lost in Iraq, I don’t think you understand the effect of your words. The Iraqis I speak with are the good guys here, fighting to build a stable government. They hear what you say, but they don’t understand it. They don’t know about the political game, they don’t know about a Presidential veto, and they don’t know about party politics.

But they do know that if they help us, they are noticed by terrorists and extremists. They decide to help us if they think we can protect them from those terrorists. They tell us where caches of weapons are hidden. They call and report small groups of men who are strangers to the neighborhood, men that look the same to us, but are obvious to them as a foreign suicide cell.

To be brief, your words are killing us. Your statements make the Iraqis afraid to help us for fear we’ll leave them unprotected in the future. They don’t report a cache, and its weapons blow up my friends in a convoy. They don’t report a foreign fighter, and that fighter sends a mortar onto my base. Your statements are noticed, and they have an effect.

Finally, you are mistaken when you say we are losing. We are winning, I see it every day. However, we will win with fewer casualties if you help us. Will you?

Respectfully,
LT Jason Nichols, USN
MNF-I, Baghdad

I look forward to hearing the audio, thanks again.

The New Tokyo Rose


The New Tokyo Rose

Friday, April 20, 2007 3:20 PM

This is from Wake Up America…Spree

It is a repost from Last November and even though it was appropriate then, it is even MORE appropriate now.

The Leftinistra are constantly “stepping in it”.  Losers that they are and all.

In Light Of Harry Reids Words- Reposting Tokyo Rose

Because of Harry Reids idiotic words yesterday I would like to repost this which was written in November of 2006 here at Wake up America.

The Democrats and the elite left wing media have become the Tokyo Rose of Iraq.

Every time a Democratic candidate or the media report that the “war in Iraq cannot be won”, they are insulting the troops on the ground that fight every single day in a battle they DO think they can win. They are telling these brave men and women who are our soldiers that they do not believe in their capabilities nor do they believe the soldiers own words when they say they ARE winning this war in Iraq.

Every time the politicians claim that Iraq is a “failed policy” they are telling our troops that they are failing and that every sacrifice is in vain.

What Tokyo Rose could not accomplish, because they American soldiers KNEW she was lying about what their country felt, the left media and the democratic candidates and party are accomplishing, because they ARE Americans who are belittling our troops and our soldiers know it.

Go to Spree’s place and read the rest…very informative to say the least.

NEWS FLASH!! IRAQNOPHOBIA!!


NEWS FLASH!! IRAQNOPHOBIA!!

Friday, April 20, 2007 2:09 PM

I would really like to claim this as  my own invention but alas,  it is not my own.  I heard the phrase from a Fighting Man in Iraq.  He called into the Rush Limbaugh show and it is the term they came up with among the troops in response to Reids’ retarded comments and it defines the rhetoric very well.

Behold!

Iraqnophobia: The pathological loathing and fear of victory in Iraq.

The Leftinistra are DEATHLY afraid of a victory in Iraq.  It will  expose the Leftinistra for what they are.  Defeatist Jihadist Trolls.
