So, as many of you know...I am being transferred out of this miserable country! Will be back in the saddle at my new job on Monday, but have a lot to do between now and then as well as soon thereafter...so bloging will take a back seat to real life for a while. I will post when I can, but is will be sporadic. I hope to back in full swing sometime by the end of next week

Why do we continue to put up with idiocy from our intel/law enforcement services.
ATLAS put all of it in perspective - How f*cked up are we that we can't even tie a spy to his home governement who happens to want to detroy all of the western world with nukes. Grrr....
I woke up Saturday morning dreading the day as we had a “Staff Assistance Visit” from our higher headquarters. Fortunately because we rule, it went well. I was later “dragged” out to the pub Saturday evening by my roomie, and we have a gracious helping of Rum and Coke (Why is all of the Rum gone?!?!). I woke up Sunday early, and slightly hung over, drove out to the Airsoft site, and proceeded to engage targets willy-nilly…I ran with the usually crew or misfit and miscreants and Conrad the cop showed up just to say “Hi” – he hooked me up with a killer “CAMBS ARU” Shirt – very cool! – Then the site owner and my longtime friend John D. bought a killer Chinese Dinner…a GRAND day indeed.

It seems that some very learned people actually understand the operational realities on the ground...it does not address the Ideology that must be addressed in order for us to win the Big war...but it does bring to light the lie that the "war is lost"
But not directed at the other party
In spite of our own Congress not believing that this war is just or even necessary I never believed the Dems would come out at actually go across the line to complete Vichy style defeatism. This is beyond a Chamberlain-esque appeasement and re-education program. While the liberal Orwellian policies on right-think and right-speech insure that we get closer to Dhimmitude, we have our Congressional leadership DECLARING DEFEAT. Regardless of the alleged motivations of our Executive leadership the fact is that we are now engaged in a campaign in Iraq against multiple enemies, and it is within the scope of our national interests to win this campaign. Mind you, that is exactly what it is…a campaign…not a war, “the war” the horribly misnamed GWOT. The Global War On Terrorism. A euphemism at best…an outright lie at worst…yet even that our yellow bellied Congressional leadership would have stricken from the record. What would they have it called? “The Global Naked Aggressiveness to Line the Pockets of Bushitlerhaliburton” or GNALPB!?!?! Let’s break it down:more...

No doubt Cho was a physco…but it is interesting that he equates Osama, Kim and Bush….I wonder why MSNBC has a) edited it…and b) not released the who document…hmmmm what *is* released @ MSNBC
“Are you happy now that you have destroyed my life? Now that you have stolen everything you could from me? Now that you have gone on a 9/11 on my life like [expletive deleted] Osama. Now that you have [expletive deleted] your own people like [expletive deleted] Kim Jong-Il. Now that you have gone on a hummer safari on my life like [expletive deleted] Bush? Are you happy now?"

A new documentary exposes the truth about the leftist Orwellian agenda at American colleges ~ Indoctrinate – U
Speech codes. Censorship. Enforced political conformity. Hostility to diversity of opinion. Sensitivity training. We usually associate such things with the worst excesses of fascism and communism, not with the American universities that nurtured the free speech movement. But American higher education bears a disturbing resemblance to the totalitarian societies that are anathema to our nation’s ideal of liberty. Evan Coyne Maloney’s documentary film, Indoctrinate U, reveals the breathtaking institutional intolerance you won't read about in the glossy marketing brochures of Harvard,
lace w:st="on">lace>, Yale, and hundreds of other American colleges and universities. Berkeley, Michigan

<rant>I hate bureaucracy....I am sick to death of the CONSTANT bullshit that goes with this transfer/move….GOSH...they are ruining my life! I had to come back to this frackin’ stoopid place because of bureaucracy (on my own dollar)…and now I have to return to the States to another Federal job to which I am transferring…out of my own pocket as well (because of the same idiot bureaucracy)…If it weren’t for the bennies and the love of job…and needing to eat…and feed the kids…and pay bills…I would SO walk out of here….well…that explains the pissed off part….I am HUNGRY too! Why? Because AAFES stocks exactly 4 food products - 2 of which are usually out of stock, the other two are pure fat…further, the only eatery here apparently buys their meager supplies at a HUGE markup on the British economy at that ridiculous 2:1 exchange rate…thus not having enough of anything, and what they do have is WAY overpriced! Not to mention that all of their “would you like fries with that?” employees must be on full bennies and pulling like 40K a year…and they are only open for like 2 hours a day….1.5 of which I am in the office...<rant />

(And some of you shoud know better!) For the god's sake! Everywhere I look...what ever happened to proper nomenclature? A clip is (generally) a stamped metal "holder" for ammunition that allows a speedy load/reload of a magazine before it is discarded (the M1 Garand is slightly different). A magazine feeds the ammunition into the breach of a weapon. *Most* 9mm Semi-Automatic pistols are fed by a detachable magazine...not by a fixed magazine which is reloaded with a "clip"...grrrr....(see sites of word misuse as well as a detailed pictorial description of clips vs. magazines below the fold)
For those of you who read them before...the format will be basically the same...One or 2 lines - no BS...and a 1-5 star rating! See below the fold for the past....I have a couple of years to catch up on SO...I will be adding reviews as I go on things I have seen/read in the interim as well as the new stuff that I am privy to...I might even add some music reviews for you jam junkies...cuz you know I always find the 'fresh jams' Enjoy!more...
Are they just pointing the finger at the wrong people...for the wrong reasons...and the wrong type of cover -up? Now I understand….Now I realize….there possibly really is a VAST left wing conspiracy….not only is it possible that the Clintons knew about the Al Qaeda plot for 9/11 before President Bush was elected/inaugurated…but it is also possible that they were (via sandyberger) complicit in a post 9/11 cover up of who knew what…and when… did the Clinton Whitehouse/CIA know…and if they did…is it possible they did NOT tell the Bush Whitehouse? Why did sandyberger steal documents…and shred them…later gladly falling on his sword for his boss? All of this begs to wonder…is this why the “truther” crowd emerged? Were they fed BS info by the leftists who should have sounded the alarm…in order to redirect the public eye from a blatant gross negligence?more...

SO our friendly neighborhood environmental chekist just came up to the office to warn us about the combined UK/US Orwellian policies on storing “dangerous chemicals” (and forcible recycling)…so these are the facts:
1) any flammable chemicals must be stored in a “fire resistant” locker
2) anything not issued by the government can not be kept unless it is used in small amounts (once per month or so)…but then only with a locally approved and signed form in order to track these “dangerous chemicals”
3) any non-dangerous aerosols must be stored in a proper locker and not out in the open
4) if a chemical is in a non-OEM container it must be properly labeled – to include manufacturer, date, address, etcmore...
<rant> Why haven’t we started the bombing of Iran and the hunting down of Mookie…It has been proven time and again that the Iranians have committed numerous acts of war in Iraq against both us, the Brits and our Iraqi allies…We have known literally for years about the “quiet war” between us and Iran…they supply training and arms to Mookie’s henchmen and support physically and fiscally the Shia insurgency (as well as the Sunnis – just so they can shoot at us). When are we going to stop playing Mr. Nice Occupier and start dropping the hammer…more...

However...I DO find the suggested careers a bit amusingmore...
Once I thought I knew what Pop was trying to tell me, with that crooked, knowing grin of his…smiling at me the way he smiled. That smile was only for the ones he loved. Really loved, not the "oh hell, I love him because he's my great-grand-uncle (twice removed or whatever)" smile. It was a smile that was confident about you understanding what the hell he was trying to tell you. It was a smile that told you he loved you.
Anyway, I was saying, I once thought I knew what he was trying to tell me when He said: "The world is packed with Idiots." In a most matter-of-factly way. So matter-of-factly (isn’t that fun to say "Matter-of-factly") in fact that you found it hard to argue the point with him, even if you really disagreed. He would pipe off soon afterward with "LOOK! There goes one now!" as he pointed outrageously at an innocent passerby.more...
The UK is considering legalizing home invasion robbery to collect on *PARKING FINES* and the press and the likes of Pelosi just keep on tickin’ along…hating freedom…wishing to become dhimmis of the new global caliphate or communism…whomever beats us down first…I am so appalled…does anyone actually read the news…can the common man actually rub two brain cells together and use some logic and reason to develop a world view…or is it that my father was ABSOLUTELY right…more...

Is it me…or are British drivers the biggest bunch of assholes ever? So imagine this….you are driving down the road at a safe (albeit a bit illegal) speed in the fast lane…passing one and all…there is a Volvo doing about 5mph under the limit in front of you and you are gaining fast…he is slowly approaching an “articulated lorry” (a Semi to Americans) that is in the slow lane up ahead about a mile…So here's me: I flash my lights…he fails to move over…I flash again as I get closer…no response…I see him looking in the rear view…he knows I am here and that I want him out of the way…I check the slow lane…plenty of room…no other immediate traffic…I signal and begin to pass him…this ASS literally downshifts and drops the hammer AND TRIES TO BOX ME IN….so of course I am an Alpha Male…I floor it and pass him anyway…he gets REALLY PISSED and tries to get up on my bumper…flashing his brights….So I keep the throttle engaged and leave him in the dust giving the international “You are Number 1!”….grrrr…..I can't WAIT to get back to the States...where some American Idiot will probably do the same thing...

I just hope the ONLY reason they didn't charge him with treason and instead chose to charge him with various aiding and abetting charges is due to lack of witnesses... The Story: FOX News
The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offence is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, no person shall be convicted of treason, unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.
But then again...we have dropped the ball on Johnny Walker Lindh, SGT Hassan Akbar (although he is sentence to death for murder - but its the PRINCIPLE of the thing), and Yusuf Yee. But this one we got right: Azzam al Amriki (so far)
Full story heremore...
Hmmm…long tours….Of course my Grandfather served in Europe during WWII…his orders read “For the duration of the war – PLUS six months…"
It sux...but it's that or start the draft (bad idea IMHO)...OR...take the gloves off and start doing what we do best...
Also at FOX News...
"We know that they are being in fact manufactured and smuggled into this country, and we know that training does go on IN IRAN for people to learn how to assemble them and how to employ them. We know that training has gone on as recently as this past month from detainees debriefs," Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, the US military spokesman, said at a weekly briefing.
We have *known* this since at LEAST late 2005…Why have we not reacted to this BLATANT act of war? We wonder why the “Long War” is taking so long….grrrrr
This story at FOX News has me thinking about the environment and is getting me all misty…poor little nearly extinct bunnies…At least the friendly humans are trying to keep this endangered fluffy bunny species alive..But - mean ole’ carnivorous raptors are eating them all…we should all watch Watership Down and sing happy songs…more...

I really appreciate the publicity! Thanks my friend!
Everybody - Hit up the Jawa!
Some of you might not "get" some of this...but for us Soldiers..very funny indeed!
I have just about had it with the whole “Bush Lied, People Died” mantra of the leftards and Islamofacists world wide…We need to win this war…and the only way we can is if we win the propaganda war first…and that dear friends WE ARE LOSING…Let us compare myths with FACTS for a change…
Myth #1: 9/11 was a (pick one: Hoax/Inside job/Zionist plot/Republican plot re: “looking the other way”/aliens)
If you believe ANY of that crap…you are in fact a retard and would have been thrown to the bottom of that cliff in Sparta. However…since I brought it up see this:
