Raptor Deploys To The Rock

The Raptor deployed again to PACAF with F-22 from Langley hopping into Okinawa for an extended stay. I’m sure that the vast Chinese Air Force is shaking in their collective boots. If they build meaningful number of these jets, and I’m talking about another 100 to 120 then we have a credible deterrence and war fighting force. If not as attrition takes hold all the Air Staff has done by building these jets at the expense of advanced Strike Eagles is disarm the USAF.
They do look cool though don’t they?

Obama Blow Off Salute To Hero’s Ball

While the MSM had a tingling sensation down their leg on inauguration night in another snub to the military President Obama became the first Chief executive in 56 years to not attend “Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball. The American Legion sponsors the ball, which recognizes recipients of Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award. It started in 1953 for President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s first inauguration. Event co-sponsors include 13 other veterans’ service organizations, among them the Military Order of the Purple Heart and the Paralyzed Veterans of America.
This is the man who is now CINC of the Armed Forces. What a joke but we already knew this. Leftists as a rule loathe the military. This is the same man who in one breath say’s that we must maintain and increase our industrial base while at the same time calling for cuts in military spending. Were does he and his Democrat buddies think that the planes, tanks trucks and armaments come from, France? This is going to be on long 4 years. I just hope that I can still recognize the USA and that we haven’t become some clone of the European Union cradle to grave society.

Obama’s First Day

Well the first day of the new administration has passed and we can see a clear left wing socialist agenda coming forth.
First odd the White House release that the draft order to close Guantanamo Bay within one year will be issued tomorrow. This couples with Obama asking the Military Tribunals to suspend activity for 120 days including the ongoing trial of one of the 9/11 mastermind conspirators. The question remains into where these scumbags will be taken or the more important ones like how does this make us more secure? Why are we giving extended protection and rights to non-uniformed enemy combatants who by international law can be executed in the field? I guess this is hope and change

Then we have a little tid bit that hit the wires, After being sworn in on Tuesday, Obama ordered all federal agencies and departments to halt pending regulations until they can be reviewed by incoming staff., This included the orders that President Bush signed to increase domestic off shore gas and oil exploration and may include shale oils development in the western US according to an interior department spokesman.
How does this help? Well it doesn’t, if we don’t get on the stick now as the economies around the world recover oil will once again increase in price and we will be spending our capital on foreign oil instead of producing our own. No matter how much the left stamps it feet about alternative energy for the foreseeable future we are an oil-based economy. We need to boost our own supply so we do not have to depend on foreign unfriendly powers for our energy. This is a national security issue that Obama and the Democrats are already on record opposing the will of the people. I swear foe being the smartest people in the room the want to doom us to a stalled no growth European nanny state.

Plaque Deaths In Algeria Suspect

The report of bubonic plague deaths the other day in Algeria hardly raised any eyebrows. I for one thought that these animal terrorists living in the caves succumbed to their own unsanitary conditions. Then the report from the Washington Times that indicate that this may be in fact a Bio or Chem warfare accident made ne stand up and take notice.

Here is an expert from the article click the post title for the link to the Washington Times

An al Qaeda affiliate in Algeria closed a base earlier this month after an experiment with unconventional weapons went awry, a senior U.S. intelligence official said Monday.

The official, who spoke on the condition he not be named because of the sensitive nature of the issue, said he could not confirm press reports that the accident killed at least 40 al Qaeda operatives, but he said the mishap led the militant group to shut down a base in the mountains of Tizi Ouzou province in eastern Algeria [the same place where there was a report of 40 terrorists dying from the plague]

He said authorities in the first week of January intercepted an urgent communication between the leadership of al Qaeda in the Land of the Maghreb (AQIM) and al Qaeda's leadership in the tribal region of Pakistan on the border with Afghanistan. The communication suggested that an area sealed to prevent leakage of a biological or chemical substance had been breached, according to the official.

"We don't know if this is biological or chemical," the official said.

If this pans out it is a worrisome development. With Obama and his clintioid staff taking over in a few hours and the ease of transporting these poor mans WMD across borders we have every reason to be worried. Biden said that the new President would be tested, I just hope its not with the deaths from his fellow Americans because of hope and change.

US Airways A320 Down In the Hudson

Thursday afternoon a US Airways A320 enroute from LaGuardia to Charlotte suffered numerous bird strikes that led to catastrophic engine failure to both of the aircrafts engines.. The real hero was the pilot Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger, III, Captain. Sullenberger age 57 a former USAF F-4 pilot is a senior Captain for the airline he and his first officer used all of their combined skill to execute a flawless ditching of the A320 in the Hudson River. There action coupled with that of the cabin crew and some stand up passengers led to a successful evacuation of the plane with no loss of life and few serious injuries.

Rangel And The Draft

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) likely will introduce his controversial legislation to reinstate the draft again this year, but he will wait until after the economic stimulus package is passed.

The only reason Tax Free Charlie wants’ to due this is to destroy the finest military the world has ever seen, there can be no other reason, Charlie who is a member of the out of Iraq Caucus tried this scam is 2006 thinking that we could have the same protests like we had during Vietnam to protest the war. He has also used the lie of having a large percentage of minorities in the combat units.
While in some cases in the Army for example there are generally a higher percentage of minorities in the service than in the population as a whole, but when you look at actual combat units, infantry artillery and armor you find that this is simply not the case.
Rangel is a best a rabble-rouser, He should be thanked for his service in Korea and then be forced to resign because of all of his tax problems. Of course being a Democrat this will never happen.

Obama To Close Gitmo

An Obama transition team member said today that one of Obama’s first acts is to issue a presidential order to close the prison for the terrorist scum at Guantanamo Bay and to end any so called torture. First off I would like to know what they plan on doing with these scumbags? Rendition back to Iraq sound pretty good since the new Iraqi government would probably do what we should have to start with on the battlefield with these individuals. As far as the ending torture, they must be still whining about the two terrorists who were water boarded. I’m sure these two gave up valuable intell that saved American lives but when you are a progressive this is not good enough. Every month special operations troops are water boarded as part of their SERE training and funny I don’t here to many Green Berets or SEALS whining about this aspect of their training.
Between the new left trying to make the world love us (trust me it will never happen) and "Senator Clinton who believes in "smart power" -- using all the tools of foreign policy that are at our disposal.” This administration will surely be a train wreck with the ongoing war against Islamic terrorism.
I’m convinced that the left will not get serious until there is another horrific attack on this nation. Even then most of them will say we deserve it. Michael Savage is right, liberalism is a mental disease.

Jimmy Carter, Terrorist Stooge

Just when you think we are safe from the worst man to ever occupy the White house we get this tidbit from his article in the Washington Post.

“This fragile truce was partially broken on Nov. 4, when Israel launched an attack in Gaza to destroy a defensive tunnel being dug by Hama”That would be the defensive tunnel’s that Hamas has been smuggling weapons in for years.

Exactly how much money is Carter getting from the Saudis to continue to spout his anti Semite crap? Jimmy Carter the man who never saw a terrorist or a dictator he didn’t like.

In a similar vein his protégé Obama floating the Trail balloon about opening low-level diplomatic relations with the terrorist thug’s of Hamas.

Panetta Named To Head CIA

Obama today made what has to be the most screwed up choice yet for his cabinet. He named former Clinton Chief of Staff Leon Panetta as his pick to be Director of the CIA. His pick has set off a firestorm among his own Senate Democrat colleges in particular Senator Feinstein of CA who is the incoming chairmen of the Senate committee in intelligence. Senator Feinstein was not consulted and her own expectations were to pick a person who had a high level of experience in intelligence. Instead we get another Clinton hack, who did a two year tour in Army intelligence years ago What a joke at a time when we need a steady hand like Gen Hayden who has spent almost 40 years in the intelligence game we get a guy who knew nothing when it came to Bill Clinton scandals. Hope and change, look more like a third Clinton administration. Makes you wonder what kind of goods the Clintons have on the one.
