Always On Watch

What an outstanding post!

We just aren't going about this thing the right way.

We're losing this war. I refuse to call it "The War on Terror." That terminology is just a soundbite for those who are incapable of critical thinking.

My heart goes out to our military personnel deployed in Iraq. Thank God my cousin came home in one piece; his job was to seek out and detonate IED's before our service people could be killed or maimed. But how many of our soldiers are coming home permanently maimed? And for what? To promote an Iraqi constitution which encodes shari'a law?


Encapsulating all that Churchill would have taken for granted. Terrific post.Below is news that illustrates the way GWB has lost his way.

Bush drops reference to 'Islamic fascists'

STATE DEPARTMENT President Bush has avoided repetition of a term that angered Muslims.
Responding last week to the foiling of an alleged plot to blow up flights between Britain and the United States, Bush said, "This nation is at war with Islamic fascists."

That triggered immediate objections from the Council of American-Islamic Relations, and another objection today from the government of Saudi Arabia.

In a statement after its weekly meeting, the Saudi Cabinet "warned against labeling Muslims with accusations of terrorism and fascism."

Bush didn't repeat the reference to "Islamic fascists" at the State Department today, referring instead to "individuals that would like to kill innocent Americans to achieve political objectives."

So the War on Terror, WoT, has now become 'War on individuals that would like to kill innocent Americans to achieve political objectives', WoITWLTKIA.


The above is a 25 point plan and goes along with another 25 point test to see if you are an Islamophobe



Who cares whether Muslims are angered? I'm tired of hearing about their feelings and seeing our government pussyfoot around their sensibilities. As such, they are useful idiots.

Fight a war to win...obviously our State Department and Executive Branch aren't interesting in winning as they seem to be fighting with one armed tied behind the back.

We need a president and bureaucracy that are interested ONLY in America and not what the rest of the world feels and thinks.


Hi folks, good to meet up again.

I'm not able to keep in contact at the mothership due to having written something alone the lines as above, but I see I'n not alone anymore, now there being increasing commentary along those lines, today at Tech Central Station, for example.

I'll reprise an old theme here: consider my distant relative, William. Look at our efforts in terms of private enterprise.

Hope to stay in contact more often.

Regards, Dag.

The way we are fighting this war is foolish. Not only do we not fight the war to annihilate our enemy, we then embark on 'nation building', a folly that costs $$billions and thousands in precious soldiers' lives.



Thank you so much for dropping by.

I think there are many more of "us" than there are of "them" than even we realize, and that gives me great hope!


We're with you, in spades! To lose so much in order to give our declared (from their side, at least) enemy an opportunity to install themselves in two more countries is immoral. Three countries, if you count Lebanon.

We are so glad to hear that your cousin is all right; what an incredible job. He must have saved many lives. Please tell him "welcome back" for us!


Hi there! Great to hear from you, and thank you so much for referring me to that other great "List of Twenty-five!"

I had just enough time before running over to my grandkids' house to babysit overnight while their dad had surgery to go and join the fun at Gandalf's! Took the test and passed with flying colors!


I'm more encouraged than ever that we are not alone. Our Leaders are the idiots, but We, the People, retain a very large amount of common sense, and a highly logical, moral assessment of what it means to engage in "self-defense."

What do you think of the Lebanon situation? I heard that Iran is resupplying Hezbollah, but not helping the Lebanese government. Who do you think will soon be the "de facto" government there, instead of just a few seats in their parliament? In my opinion, Iran is replacing Syria as the governor of a new province, and lodging itself right next to Israel.


Foolish, absolutely - even suicidal. You know the old saying, "If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself." Well, I think that's what it will come down to, since Our Leaders. . . Oh, shoot, they're such nincompoops! What more can I say?

Three cheers for us and the likes of Ralph Peters! Hip, hip, HOORAY! (Hats in the air!)

What a fantastic article. I only wish the USA and the UK would work together on this and win this war!



We are on board with you! Together, and with the rest of the heirs of the British-born Age of Enlightenment (as contrasted with continental Europe, which remained under the befuddling influence of the Three Stooges of Philosophy, Kant, Hegel, and Marx), we could do it quickly and neatly, without the kinds of immoral sacrifice we see day after day.

The very fact that the Blogosphere is exploding with views like ours is comforting. Ralph Peters said in a recent (August 20) op ed at the New York Post, "Things will get uglier east of Suez, but we will win."

If Ralph Peters thinks we are headed in that direction, I find it REALLY comforting!


Point 1 should be:
The war is against Islamic totalitarianism.

Peters rules of engagement are only going to be successful if a enemy is so defined.


Sorry to be so late, Unaha-closp. Your "revision" of "Point 1" is good!

The proper definition of a problem is definitely the first step in its solution; we have yet to properly define the enemy, so reaching the solution will be an uphill climb.

We're slow learners, but I do think we are making progress, little by little. It's a grassroots effort, though - the Average Joe out here seems to be much faster on the uptake than our government "leaders." We'll get through to them eventually, though - if the terrorists don't get through to them first!


I also am so sick and tired of hearing about Shari,islamic extreme groups and thoses damn illegal mexicans we need to take this country back. Who cares about mexico's problems close all the borders and let them sink into hell as for as iam concerned. we have become a nation pussyfooters and patsy's"WHEN ARE WE GONNA WAKE UP".

    So far, Muslims have their greatest victory over us by making us shift into defensive living with regard to them. We tread with fear of "offending" them, of inciting world-wide riots by Muslims against us, and of always trying to curry favor with irrationalists. We used to go about life, guided by our own thoughts and desires, and no defensiveness. It is our fault that we let them dominate our behavior. STOP IT! Americans do not live defensively! Let savages fear us!
