The Very Thin Red Line.

September 20, 2012

Barack MaoBama is standing on Israel’s last nerve. Having abrased his way through all the goodwill the Israelis can muster, he’s really barking up the wrong tree. The Israelis, unlike our Mr Obama, are not deluded by anything this worst president in American history, or his lackeys, have to say. Stark realism is always at the root of the Israeli soul. It’s been deeply ingrained in them by centuries of pogroms suffered during the long diaspora, culminating in the ovens of Auschwitz, Chelmno, Belzec… or any of the names which are associated with the holocaust.

MaoBama has read the Israelis wrong from day one. Have you noticed any of the pics of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with the Anointed One? Netanyahu doesn’t take his eyes off of Obama for a split second. His gimlet-like stare is like somebody watching a venomous snake in the grass around camp. This is the face of a man who has seen the real Obama and is not impressed. Benjamin Netanyahu knows exactly who and what Barack Hussein is.

He also knows what we of the American Tea Party Patriots have known all along. MaoBama is a pathological sociopath, a man with a fractured past and not one shred of conscience. The Israeli prime minister realizes that his country is alone in facing an increasingly bellicose and dangerous Iran, and her surrogates throughout the region.

That Israel has seen this time coming, and has been preparing for it for years, makes the reality no less poignant. The rosiest scenario would be if Israel were to strike and the rest of the western nations would be pulled in by virtue of self-interest, if for no other reason.

Iran is going to have to be defeated… period. Iran’s radical theocratic leadership will not be swayed from their course of war, conquest and death. I’m not sure what it is about the occidental mind that can not grasp the simple concept that, to Islam and Moslems, we are the antithesis of everything the ‘Death Cult’ espouses with such barbaric savagery. You won’t get them to play nice… Ask MaoBama.

Yes, it’s a Thin Red Line. “Never again” and “Never forget” are deeply ingrained in the soul of every Israeli. Remember the determination on Benjamin Netanyahu’s face, as he confronted the Anointed One’s lackey State Department clown? Israel will attack Iran, and soon.
The only thing I can think of to say is ‘Godspeed’.

Article In Search Of A Title.

March 24, 2012

It’s not that I don’t have ideas for article titles. There’s certainly no dearth of material out there. Which, in part, brings me to the subject, which is that it doesn’t matter where I look, nationally, locally, or globally, events scream for attention. I want to fire off articles on each and every one of them.

We are living in very perilous times… far more perilous than most people realize. There is the imminent threat of war in the middle east. Despite Obama the Betrayer doing his very best to prevent Israel from acting in its own best interest (read ‘survival’) by attacking the country whose sworn goal is the destruction of Israel and the murder of every man, woman and child. Iran must be stopped. There’s no equivocating it. We know that Barack MaoBama, despite all the tough words around his mouth, does not have the courage or the leadership to attack Iran and end her nuclear ambitions. In fact, many feel that Obama would rather see Israel destroyed. Perhaps, so does Israel. And no, they won’t give us or anyone else warning.

Could you imagine entrusting the jihadist-penetrated White House with Israeli state secrets? Or the increasingly politicized panty-waist chair-warmers at Obama’s Pentagon? Obama recently reversed his order that denied Israeli access to in-flight refueling. It wasn’t for his love of Israel, you may rest assured. It may, however, give him an excuse to piggyback his way into the Iran affair and come riding in behind the truly massive US firepower concentrated in the Mediterranean off of Iran and the US troops reported to be staging in the area. He will then be able to boast  once again, taking credit for the efforts of others as he has so often done.

This nation has never been in as much real danger as it now finds itself. We’re in a daily war for the soul of our county against forces who would see us enslaved and our country in everlasting darkness. Sounds almost apocalyptic, doesn’t it? Historians are fond of citing stories of world-altering events. It’s what we would call 20-20 hindsight. It’s much scarier and more vivid when we’re living these events. It’s easy to imagine the fear and unease that must have permeated the lives of those living in Europe in the years just prior to World War 2.

There’s plenty of unease to go around here, in our country. We have a government in power whose only goal is the destruction of our way of life… with the unholy alliance between the avowed Marxists of Barack Hussein Obama’s government, the craven, unprincipled symbionts of the so-called main stream media, and the equally unprincipled labor unions to which Obama is beholden.

We have an ‘economic recovery’ which is not. Academic theoreticians lauding fractional increases in unemployment and meaningless statistical nonsense while 44 million Americans have either dropped off the unemployment radar or are underemployed. American business is reeling from the absolute onslaught of Barack Maobama’s extra-constitutional regulatory oppression. Our energy sector and our military are equally under assault by our would-be dictator. Pretty grim picture, is it not?

We, as Americans, have the power to change this. Our focus, our only focus, has to be the defeat of the Obama Marxist machine.

Just Possibly The Most Crucial Year In Modern History.

January 4, 2012

It’s the year most of the country has been waiting for. Ever since it realized it had elected a monster president and a ravenous horde of Marxists intent on institutionalizing European style (or worse) socialism in this country. It’s highly probable that 2012 will be one of those ‘pivotal’ years that historians glory over… after the fact. Problem with that is that we are the facts. And 2012 is a slate yet to be written on.

The world is an increasingly dangerous place and, under President Barack Hussein Obama, even more so for America. This is a man who identifies more with the stated enemies of this Republic than with American citizens.

Those who read my columns will remember that in my business one can put in an outrageous number of hours, which can result in precluding my writing. No, it’s not because I can’t write when I’m dog tired. It’s more because I don’t have time to do the requisite research.

Dee, the very efficient editor of this little shooting match, can’t do it for me. She is just about maxed out too… which would explain why we haven’t seen an article from her in a while. She’s a pretty good writer in her own right.

Regular readers will remember my (former) IDF buddy, Jackie. He just returned from a couple of weeks in Israel. We both work for the same company and I was talking to him out of earshot of any staff. We were talking about Israel. So, you say, what’s the big deal? You’ve talked to him before. Prying information out of Jackie is like trying to open a giant clam with a pair of chopsticks. We’ve both watched the Iran/Middle East crisis develop with not a little trepidation. He, because Israel is his home of origin (he has family there). Me, because I’ve been fascinated by history and the events that shaped history. A life-long avocation that has taught me that history, in many ways, does repeat itself.

As Iran wraps up ten days of military exercises, Israel launches a surprise naval exercise off Haifa.

During our various conversations, one overriding theme developed. As a matter of policy, Israel does not wish to be the first to start a conflict. It’s also a stated policy that it will not permit the destruction of the State of Israel. Jackie told me that the stuff can hit the fan any time now. But he’s worried. There are, he said, tens of tens of thousands of missiles, rockets and mortars that, if all-out war erupts in the Middle East which now seems inevitable, will blast Israel, taxing her defenses to the limit. It could make the London blitz look like a Sunday School picnic.

Jackie says it’s going to be very nasty. This, coming from a bona fide combat veteran of two of Israel’s wars. He cites advanced electronics, training and weaponry being supplied to Iran, Syria and others by China, Russia and North Korea. War in the Middle East will be a game changer. America has had three years to observe and judge Barack Hussein’s hatred of Jews and his obvious antisemitism. He’s certainly flaunted it enough over the last three years. The hitch there is that a very aware America has been watching, and waiting, for 2012. America is on the move.

The new media is attracting new viewers, listeners and readers in droves. The Lame Stream Press is reeling from numbers that should be an embarrassment if it were not infected by blindness, caused by ideological fervor on behalf of its leftist masters.
It’s 2012 and America is on the march.

Meanwhile, At Ground Zero…

November 6, 2011

It’s been a while since we’ve written about our Israeli friends. It’s certainly not from a lack of interest on our part. We’ve had our plate rather full here at home. Our own war here, against the forces of evil that are threatening to overwhelm our Republic, has kept our attention pretty much on the national scene and the dire necessity of removing Barack MaoBama and his minions from office in 2012.

Benjamin Netanyahu (center) meets with Lt. General Benny Gantz (left)

If you want to see Barack Obama’s America one only has to go near downtown Oakland… if you can stand the smell, that is. Or San Francisco… or Atlanta. This is Obama’s constituency… these cretinous, odiferous parasites condemning financial institutions for doing exactly what a Democrat government mandated them to do in the first place. Remember the Community Reinvestment Act? It’s going to loom very large in the months ahead, as are the crooked politicians who fostered this abomination.

Israel is preparing for war. The spooky part is that they’re telegraphing it. This sets up all sorts of interesting speculation. I’m firmly convinced that in the coming war with the evils of worldwide Islamic radicalism, it is going to be the raw courage and determination of this tiny bastion of freedom that will stiffen the spine of the West. It’s an indisputable fact that that linguine-spined bunch in Washington can use all the backbone stiffening they can get… and they’d better get some soon.

Iran, having tested young Barry and having found him not only weak but pathetically easy, is pushing ahead on all fronts. According to some intelligence sources, Iran may already have a device. According to others, they already have enough enriched bomb-grade material to manufacture four devices. Regardless, it all means the same to Israel.

I have close Israeli friends, one of whom I’ve written about in this column before….He fought in two of Israel’s wars as a tank commander and has had the very dubious distinction of having two tanks shot out from under him… and lived to talk about it. My friend has close ties in Israel and every time I’ve mentioned to him that Israel has to make a move against Iran and her surrogates soon, he’s equivocated his answers… until now. He told me this week it’s very close. Now, I’m not saying that my friend is privy to Israeli war councils… but he has friends who have friends.

It’s a sad commentary on Barack Hussein Obama’s America when the British and even the French have committed to Israel’s defense, while Barack Obama does everything in his and his government’s power to strengthen Israel’s enemies.

More Razzle Dazzle From The Clown-In-Chief.

September 21, 2011

It would seem that the country has seen and heard every single falsehood that Obama and the DeMarxists have foisted on the American people. If there was ever an address that underwhelmed the public purview of Barack Hussein’s pitch for ‘balance’ and more taxes against the ‘rich’, this was it.

The top 10% of earners pay 70% of the taxes in this country to start with. If you confiscated every dime of the wealthiest people in this nation it would scarcely run the Federal Government for more than about ninety days. I’ve never gotten a job from a poor person. So, then, it stands to reason that Obama is determined to to forever destroy the job creators in our country.

Never in my lifetime, and very possibly in the history of this country, have we seen someone who is so wrong in so many different ways. If Mr Hussein was a private citizen it wouldn’t make a hoot or holler of difference. We all know incorrigible knotheads… people for whom abject ignorance is a virtue. But they’re not the President of the United States.

There’s a lead picture on ‘Drudge’, showing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Barry Obama at a meeting earlier today. Pull it up and check it out for yourselves. Obama looks like a man at the end of his rope. He’s presiding over a completely failed and ineffectual foreign policy with the sole purpose, as far as I can determine, of isolating the State of Israel, and doing everything in his power to advance the aims of the people who would see Israel in flames.

Consider his constant appeasement of Iran, probably the single greatest threat to Israel and to our own national security. There is no explanation for Obama’s apparent indifference to Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons and long-range delivery systems. No explanation, that is, unless you consider all of Obama’s overtures to the Arab world.

From literally prostrating himself in front of every two-bit, third world thug to overseeing the infiltration of the highest levels of our own government with Muslims proven to have direct connections to terrorist Islamic organizations. In blunt language, it reeks of treason.

I subscribe to Mark Levin’s take on our Mr. Obama. He’s a failed president on every level… but a very competent, inflexible ideologue which makes the whole picture far more sinister.

Why the Repubics have been loath to take this man on every time he opens his lying mouth, which is every time he opens his mouth, is beyond me… which is, of course, why many of our unesteemed RINO moderates will no longer be with us this next election cycle.

The question that keeps lingering in the back of my mind is that we know that Hussein is a dedicated Marxist. We also know that his Islamic background would give fits to any competent security operative. So while Obama plays the race card, followed by the class warfare card, followed by the immigration card ad infinitum, and blatantly follows failed policy by failed policy… the world watches and waits.

Iran marches closer and closer towards the ‘Islamic Bomb’ and the inevitable destruction of our only true ally in that entire part of the world. In essence, with Obama fiddling while Rome burns, Israel is being forced into a very short list of options.

Israel will attack Iran rather than allow them the bomb, regardless of what Hillary, Barack or Washington says. They will have to go it alone, since the treacherous Obama has refused the Israeli Air Force landing or fly-over support for her tankers. This would almost certainly mean a one-way suicide mission for some of the finest combat pilots in the world.

If Israel was put in this position I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if they make damn sure that Iran and Syria would be turned into slag heaps. Without Iranian support, most of the terrorist states would dry up and blow away.
Obama has so much to answer for.

Hear O Israel.

June 3, 2011

Well, if you won’t listen to me, maybe you’ll listen to him. No disrespect intended, but it seems that Israel is in for another border invasion, and this one reportedly has between 300 and 500 busloads of Lebanese and Palestinians being moved to the borders… to say nothing of large numbers of others heading in the direction of the borders, as well. Not being one to say ‘I told you so’… I did note at the time of the article I wrote on Friday May 20, that it had all the hallmarks of a rehearsal.

"We are preparing on all possible fronts and we will position both command and troops at forward positions," IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz said ahead of upcoming Naksa Day border protests.

Now the Iranians, in the guise of the Muslim Brotherhood, are going to test the IDF to the max. The so-called ‘Nakba Day’ protests were something only an Arab could dream up. Commemorating a battle in which the collective armies of the Arab nations got the horse pucky kicked out of them by a tiny, almost insignificant, country would seem to the western mind to be a waste of time.

To the Arab mind, steeped in seventh century barbarity and fostered in a cult-like religion where fanaticism, sadism and brutality are everyday occurrences, the constant reminder serves to foster their rage, which is never far from the surface at the best of times.

They are going to attempt to cross in overwhelming numbers on four fronts. Sounds very much like an invasion, doesn’t it? The IDF had better hope there’s not a couple of regiments of tanks behind them.

I don’t mean to sound alarmist, and some of my Israeli friends will probably scoff at me, but I know at least one who doesn’t think it’s so crazy.
Wars have been launched with less pretext.

Israel’s New Reality.

February 2, 2011

Iran is on the march all over the middle east. Its surrogates carefully chosen and in place. Iran spews venom and exports hatred, fear and murder. Iran’s reach is growing. The United States is viewing the detente between the Iranian-Venezuelan governments very closely.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has warned that Iran will turn Egypt into another Gaza. He urged the west to ensure that any new Egyptian leader respects existing peace treaties.

Egypt is still in chaos, though the army is firmly in control and plans to stay that way. Jordan is shaky… King Abdullah has released his cabinet and is forming a new one. The speed with which the unrest has traveled has left world leaders stunned and totally unprepared.

The intemperate and totally out-of-depth Obama administration’s official and unofficial encouragement of the Egyptian demonstrators is sophomoric and dangerous in the extreme. Barack Obama sounded like some petulant teenager with attitude, as he demanded Mubarak step down right now and that Egypt would have democratic elections… presumably presided over by Jimmy Boy Carter, middle east expert extraordinaire.

Our political capital in the entire region is negligible, after the incredibly stupid foreign policy that our boy president and Islamophile, Barack Hussein Obama, has pursued for the last two years. Israel’s options are even fewer now, with another 500 or so miles of border that will become hostile should Egypt and Jordan fall.

It may be that Israel should move on Iran soon. Cut the head from the snake which is fomenting world war.
Hey, Danny! Time to lock and load.

The Gift That Just Keeps Giving.

December 16, 2010

All the world is finger-pointing at Israel and the United States as the authors of the Iranians’ nemesis Stuxnet. I think they / we should take credit for it. The Iranian capacity for dealing with Stuxnet has been nearly non-existent.

The car in which Majid Shahriari was killed.

The only pretense they had at combating the rampaging worm was taken out by assassins that everyone is assuming were the Mossad… or the CIA. Majid Shahriari and Fereydoun Abbasi were attacked using a ‘limpet’ type explosive device placed on their respective vehicle windows by ‘persons unknown’ on motorcycles, detonating the devices several seconds after adhering them to the windows.

Shahriari, one of Iran’s leading nuclear scientists and the only man in Iran with any hope of unraveling the complexities of the Stuxnet worm, was killed instantly. Abbasi was wounded but survived. Recently, things have been rather tough on Iranian atomic scientists because five other noted Iranian scientists have been killed. Sorry, folks, this has Israel, the US, and most especially Mossad, written all over it.

A look back at recent history will put things into perspective. First… Israel has been penetrating Iranian and Syrian airspace for some time, testing air defenses and, obviously, getting a good look around in the process. Second… Iran was busy touting the opening of its new Bushehr reactor and preparing it to be fueled. We suddenly hear stories out of Iran of three strange unknown missiles striking the dome of the reactor. The best the Iranians come up with is that it was a defense readiness drill. Even then, Stuxnet was gaining footholds in the Iranians’ computer networks and spreading patiently… waiting.

Consider this. Stuxnet will be there waiting for the Iranians when they get up this morning… and every morning. It’s quiet, it’s patient and it’s rapacious. In short, it’s perfect. Estimates are that Iran’s nuclear ambitions are taking about a two year hiatus. Stuxnet is a very sophisticated, complex and efficient creation, almost guaranteeing its authorship by a state, as opposed to groups of anarchistically-bent hackers such as those associated with WikiLeaks or other left wing hacker groups.

Don’t expect this latest assault against the Iranian threat to be the last, or nearly so.
Remember… Israel is going to do what you’d least expect it to do, when you least expect it to do it.

Whistleblower? More Like An Executioner!

December 2, 2010

It appears that the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, is somewhere in Britain. To be more precise, latest reports indicate that he is waiting to be arrested, in a house somewhere in south east England. Given the response rate of British police, he may be waiting for some time.

The media is buzzing, looking at the various possibilities for prosecution under a host of different violations. Privacy laws, endangerment and treason have all been mentioned. More than one influential figure has called for him to be ‘taken out’.

Much of the ‘revelations’ were nothing new to some of us. Personal remarks from politicians about foreign counterparts… well, unless you take those smiley, handshakey press photos at face value, it’s not hard to imagine. Darned embarrassing the next time they meet though.

Some of the more ‘sensitive’ items are not ‘hot press’ items either. Saudi Arabia possibly supporting a strike on Iran? Although not widely covered in the lame stream, this was revealed months ago when the Saudi authorities guaranteed a safe path through their airspace for the IAF. In fact, it was covered in this column.

The most dangerous aspect of these publications is the level of detail, giving dates, names and places. To name the sources of military information in, say, Iraq or Afghanistan, is to paint a target on that person’s back. Forget laws and regulations. Common sense and respect for human life should be enough to prohibit someone from revealing life-threatening details.

Which brings us to the question of why WikiLeaks, whoever they are, are so determined to make such volatile information readily available. A spokesman for the organization in London, Kristinn Hrafnsson, denied any wrongdoing. They have also indicated their intention to release confidential information regarding large corporations.

I still hold the view that Assange is nothing more than a front-man for a far larger, more sinister network. The President is strangely quiet on the subject. The reason for his silence is a matter for conjecture that I will not enter into. What is certain though, is that he should be instructing intelligence agencies to track down all individuals and groups associated with WikiLeaks.

With all the talk of net neutrality and the fairness doctrine, both pet subjects for the Democrats with their predilection for control of all things media, they seem to overlook the real threats that exist. This is not just some bored teenage hacker, infiltrating some secure sites from his mom’s basement. It is an organized group whose aim is the destabilization of the western world.

This sort of tactic immediately throws a few names into the ring. If this is the case, could that also explain the silence of Barack Obama?

What’s With The Brits?

November 26, 2010

It’s not your grandpa’s MI6. Britain behaves like a defeated nation. The government so fears the muslims in its own population that they would align themselves with those who would see them destroyed.

MI6 Headquarters, London

Stuxnet is raising Cain with not only Iran’s centrifuges but, as I predicted, their military targeting computers as well. It’s no coincidence that there are reports of penetration of Iranian air space during such periods.

I have no idea where Stuxnet was spawned. The implication was that it was done by hackers… I believe that it was a creation of Israel with the aid of the US.

I said that Iranian claims that they had cornered the critter and all was rosy were so much garbage. It turned out that I was right. Stuxnet is the gift that keeps giving… it works by being patient and opportunistic. Then, when it does strike, it spreads like crazy.

Is it possible that Britain can be that badly deceived? As reported, MI6 thinks the Stuxnet worm is national enemy #1. News reports on British television, by so-called ‘experts’, have completely omitted the fact that in every country where the worm has been detected it has been benign… except Iran.

American intelligence would like to see Stuxnet pay a visit to North Korea and her nuclear program. Whether it would be possible to plant the worm, in as tightly-controlled a country as N. Korea, remains to be seen.

Korea or not, I think that Britain should consider her position with regard to Stuxnet, and the real reason for pandering to muslims by the condemnation of the virus with regard to Iran.
