You wanna do what.... to whom?!?!?

The Houston Chronical reports that:

WASHINGTON - Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before they are used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday.

Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions in the international community over any possible safety concerns, said Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne.

"If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said Wynne.

Reviewing Today's News

A couple of things.

1.  I don't care when or if Brad and Angolina marry. 

2.  I don't care what Paris Hilton says or does.

What I do care about, is revisionist history.  Specifically, the 9-11 docudrama, supposedly being edited by ABC to suit the whims of the former Clinton administration and the Democratic party.

You know, things are what they are.  History is what it is.  The Clinton administration operated on the principle that a lie often repeated becomes truth (Lenin, Goebbels). 

However, September 11, 2001 was not that long ago.  My college-aged Cowchild, along with his parents, had just deplaned in England on that day, and remember it well.  While, the American people in general do not seem to have a very long memory, that day looms in the memories of younger generations, just like the assassination of President Kennedy does with my generation.

Fact is fact.  The 911 Commission, as bogus and wasteful as it was, apparently did accumulate "facts".  Facts are truths, whether we like them or not.

The former Clinton administration dropped the ball in the war on terror.  The harshest responses to horrendous acts of war against the United States during the Clinton administration, were the occasional ejaculation of a missle at an empty factory or terrorist training camp, but only after first alerting the targeted areas of the incoming missile.  That is fact.  A fact is truth.

No matter how much the Democrats and the Clintonistas scream about an accurate depiction of their repeated failures in the war on terror, fact is fact and truth is truth.  They dropped the ball.  That's the story, and it ain't a news flash.  If ABC does, in fact, edit or pull the docudrama because of the CYA demands of the Democrats and Clintonistas, whatever shreds of credibility ABC may still have, will be  lost for all time.


Link to letter from Senate Dems to ABC/Disney with Big Threats

Letter from Senate Democrats to ABC & Disney threatening revocation of FCC licensing if 911 Miniseries is not pulled or severely edited.  You must read this to believe it...... The Dems are revealing their overbearing, socialist colors once again.


Documented good news from Iraq

If you want to hear some really good news from Iraq, Dafyyd has it at Big Lizards.  The first 2 posts are great, even including charts and graphs.  Good, documented information you won't hear anywhere else.  These were enjoyable reads with the morning cuppa java.

Is this what we have to look forward to?

Human heads dumped in Mexico bar:  apparently 20 armed men, dressed in black, went into a bar in Mexico, fired their guns in the air and dumped 5 heads in the middle of the place and left.  The report indicates it was an apparent warning to a rival drug gang.

Does that sounds like terrorism?  I don't care if it is drug-related or Hezbollah:  it is still terrorism.  Is this what we have to look forward to in our country as more and more terrorists gang members enter our country, illegally, of course?

How would you react to such a situation?  It could happen.  I would bet it is just a matter of time, before we are living like the Israelis, not knowing what horrible thing will happen when we dare to go to the movie or shopping or out to eat.

This is an election year, folks.  Let's keep reminding our elected officials that we refuse to live like a 3rd world country.  If we don't demand enforcement of our laws now, there will be no country left to defend.
