Obama on Islam in India

November 7, 2010 Comments off

Here is video of President Obama speaking on Islam after being asked a question about jihad and what he thinks about it. The answer is stunning and vastly ignorant. Just like much of the establishment political, media and academic elite.

What about Muhammad directly participating in war to further Islam? Why is there never logic connecting that to Muslims warring today? Why does he invoke Ghandi’s name? Ghandi has absolutely nothing to do with Islam or Jihad. It is Obama’s wishful thinking that somehow Islam’s enemies, Muslims who are violent, need to be isolated from the the Ghandi Muslims. Muslims are not going to care about Ghandi, it is Muhammad they follow and are loyal to. They will follow his mold principally rather then Ghandi, no matter how much Obama thinks they should do otherwise because Islam is a religion of peace.

What should have taken place after 9/11 or prior to be perfectly honest, is that Islam should of been singled out by the intellectuals and politicians as a violent religion that preaches Muhammad, who directly participated in war, is the Muslims mirror for his/her pattern of conduct. Obama you are a piece of work, and cannot intelligently deal with topics because your political investment swings counter to the truth.

Iran to meet Nasrallah – but who knows?

October 14, 2010 Comments off

Amidst renewed although what seems to be fading peace talks between Israel and Palestinian territories, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad decided it would be a good idea to visit South Lebanon and Bint Jbeil. What is intersting, is that out of 4 different stories, here, CNN, FOX News and MSNBC. Only here has this very telling line;

During his visit, Ahmadinejad was to meet top Lebanese officials as well as with Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Iranian- and Syrian-backed Hezbollah militia which largely controls the southern border region with Israel and is also sworn to the Jewish state’s destruction.

We would figure that Lebanese officials would be met with by Ahmadinejad during this visit, however Hassan Nasrallah? The leader of Hezbollah? Why is it that 3 out of 4 major news outlets, including FOX News did not even mention that. Why is that?

Middle East
According to Council of Foreign Relations Hassan Nasrallah profile, we can determine that he is indeed in Lebanon and as recent as July 2010 has met Khaled Meshaal leader of HAMAS. And as recently as 2006 during the Israel-Hezbollah war Israeli warplanes bombed Nasrallahs home.

While Hezbollah and Palestinian group Hamas do not have organizational ties, Nasrallah has met with Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal several times, most recently in July 2010 when Meshaal traveled to Lebanon to discuss “regional developments” (Al-Manar) with Nasrallah. It has also been reported that Hezbollah gives military training, as well as financial and moral backing, to Hamas and has acted as a role model (PDF) for the group.

Fascinating, so we can easily determine that Ahmadinejad is visiting a terrorist leader, one of the biggest in the world right there in Southern Lebanon. The scene of devastating bombing by Israel in 2006, so of course Nasrallah would be there, among the people, infiltrating their hearts and minds with propaganda. I have an idea, let Israel eliminate their target! They are fully aware of the area, as they have significant experience within that Area of Operations. Obama, this is your moment, if they manage to take out Ahamdinejad the leader of Iran and a powerful pusher behind the weaponization of nuclear weapons, AND Nasrallah? This would be a devastating blow to enemies from the north and east, two sides of Israel with reverberations effecting Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran and Russia to name a few.

Do you think this will happen? I do not but I can hope and pray can’t I? Let me know what you think in the comments.

Islam and the Way of Muhammad

October 12, 2010 Comments off

Muhammad was the son of a merchant and orphaned at age six eventually marrying a rich widow Khadijah and having six children. Born in 570 AD, Muhammad (Arabic: محمد, Muḥammad) himself is considered an ideal man, al-Insān al-Kāmil (الإنسان الكامل) in Arabic. By 630 AD all of Arabia was under his control. He is not considered divine nor is he to be worshiped. He is humbly a messenger of Allah and a model in how a Muslim should live his or her life. As the Qur’an declares, Muhammad is a; “… beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.”(Surah 33:21)

I have lost all confidence in the FBI

October 10, 2010 Comments off

Oh just speak like a normal American FBI Director Robert Mueller. Mr. Mueller you have become entrenched in political correctness and your language is sub-standard at best for the office that you hold. You make me cringe inside every time you open up your damn mouth.

US security contractors and systemic failure

October 7, 2010 1 comment

This is why the war will never be won in any clear and concise way.

The committee reviewed roughly 125 unclassified Department of Defense security contracts between 2007 and 2009, and found that there are some 26,000 private security contractors operating in Afghanistan, the majority of whom are Afghan nationals. The review found “systemic failures” of the military oversight for contracts, including the hiring of what Levin called “many too many” security contractors who had been improperly vetted, improperly trained or were not provided weapons. ref

1. Our military is not in full command of securing its own personnel.

2. When command is achieved the security personnel are Afghan nationals, not U.S. military.

We need LESS reliance on security contractors and an overhaul of military procedure, structure and command of these contracts. As troops decrease from the wars the contracted private security firms are staying. This is going to lead to even less command and control by the military and more rampant purchasing through shady money, in which creates atmosphere easy for corruption. And continued systemic failure! The Congress of US does not care, it has given most autonomy for the war to the Executive Branch. Executive branch coordinates and ultimately leads the US military. But the military then contracts out to these private security firms. And thus command and control ultimately breaks down at that link it seems to me.

US troops and Contractors comparison in fatalities

The security contractors are sacrificing along with US military personnel within the past few years. However the security personnel numbers maintain, while official US military personnel withdraws, this does not look like a good recipe. We are just now getting, “A scathing Senate report”… What is going on?! This is what happens when weak-kneed politicians in Congress don’t fully understand the need for the military and the need to facilitate it. They would rather demean military accomplishment and merit, and sneak in pork-laden crap for home districts and agenda items within funding legislation.

South Korea hosts a nonproliferation drill off of the Busan coast with 15 other countries! First mistake, its to damn far SOUTH!

The two-day drill will start on Oct. 13, and participants will include the United States, Japan and Australia. The drill will focus on intercepting vessels suspected of shipping weapons of mass destruction with surface ships, submarines and fighter jets. Two South Korean 4,500-ton torpedo destroyers, two landing ships and four submarines will be joined by a 9,000-ton Aegis destroyer from the U.S., a 4,000-ton Japanese destroyer and Australia’s maritime surveillance patrol aircraft. ref

Busan, South Korea

This in response to the sailors murdered by North Korea months and months ago and the regimes what seems to be, need to sell any type of weapons to any type of government as well as developing its own nuclear capabilities. What kind of knee-capped response is this? We should of taken extreme measures and merely shown this is in national China’s interest, and pressured China to cut off trade with North Kore until it lets in nuclear inspectors, human rights groups, etc to pacify a brutal dictatorship and rescue as many people from starvation as possible. If this does not work, we carry out the pressure on China further to destabilize and topple the regime. Of course with a transfer of power from Kim Jong Il to his son Kim Jong Un it has become to late, or if we were to exorcise such actions the window is to narrow for coordination.

These war games are a timid response, and I think akin to a kid who is bullied puffing out his chest and daring another attack, even though the bully just murdered people. This is NOT how you deal justice, this is NOT how you send clear messages in regards to acts of war. You do not respond to acts of war by acting like there is no war. These war games should of been comprehensively and continuously ran since 2008 or 2009!ref
