What about the Camp Bastion attack?

Three days after the bloody 9/11 siege on our consulate in Benghazi, the Taliban waged an intricately coordinated, brutal attack on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. The murderous jihadists released video exactly one month ago this week showing off their training exercises in preparation for the assault. Where are the questions?

Where’s the accountability? Where’s the Obama administration? Where’s the press? Where’s the outrage?

Two heroic U.S. Marines were killed in the battle. Their names — Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell – have not been uttered publicly by the commander in chief. Their arrival back in the U.S., in flag-draped coffins, was not broadcast on network TV. But their brothers-in-arms did not and will not forget. And neither must we.

On September 20, John Gresham of the Defense Media Network wrote a scathing detailed breakdown of this little-noticed terrorist attack on our troops. He called it “arguably the worst day in USMC aviation history since the Tet Offensive of 1968.” Eight irreplaceable aircraft were destroyed or put out of action by Taliban warriors dressed in U.S. combat fatigues — amounting to “approximately 7 percent of the total flying USMC Harrier fleet,” Gresham reported.

His summary is bone chilling: “A Harrier squadron commander is dead, along with another Marine. Another nine personnel have been wounded, and the nearby Marines at Camp Freedom are now without effective fixed-wing air support. The USMC’s response to this disaster will be a telling report card on its leadership and organizational agility.”

On September 21, the left-leaning magazine The Atlantic published an article on the Camp Bastion attack titled “The U.S. Suffered Its Worst Airpower Loss Since Vietnam Last Week and No One Really Noticed.” A few right-leaning blogs raised troubling questions about preparedness and security.

“How did this band of radicals even manage to approach a highly advanced multi-national military base without being detected, much less force their way inside en masse?” asked Kim Zigfeld of the American Thinker. “How were they able to attack so quickly and efficiently that, even though nearly every one of them was killed in the effort, they were able to harm the mighty leathernecks more than they had been in half a century?”

National Review’s Jonathan Foreman wondered whether Pakistan was behind the attack. “It seems likely that the special forces of a professional army planned the raid, and trained, advised and led the raiders — that is if they did not actually take part in it. Those special forces would, of course, be those of Pakistan,” Foreman posited. “This may sound shocking, but it would hardly be the first time that Pakistani special forces have operated in Afghanistan on behalf of Islamabad’s allies and proxies.”

President Obama has referred callously to the murders of our civilian diplomatic staff in Benghazi as “bumps in the road.” Even more maddening, though, is the radio silence from the White House about what happened that day at Camp Bastion — and what, if anything, Obama’s Pentagon did between the last major attack on Bastion in March and the bloody siege in September.

Somehow, a band of 15 insurgents managed to penetrate the wire with assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons on 9/14. Their destruction was of historic proportions. The attack came six months after U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was the target of a failed suicide attack attempt at Bastion. The (UK) Sun reported at the time that an Afghani was believed to have made the deliberate attempt on Panetta after “he broke through defenses and drove a vehicle towards his aircraft. He then went past the perimeter surrounded by armed security and large concrete block guards. Disaster was only averted when the truck caught fire and crashed into a ditch on the runway close to where Mr. Panetta’s jet had landed or was set to land.”

Team Obama mocks GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney with snarky lines about bayonets and binders. The thin-skinned commander in chief exploits Seal Team Six to burnish his “leadership” cred. And the president’s campaign surrogates have ceaselessly attacked their critics as “unpatriotic” for questioning this administration’s commitment to national security.

But silence is complicity. The questions must be asked: Did politically correct rules of engagement hamper our troops’ defenses? Who knew what and when? Who was behind the attackers? And what is being done to ensure our front-line defenders of freedom are able to defend themselves?


Are Americans Just Stupid?

The only reason I can imagine that people in this country would even think to give Obama a break is because they believe things crashed so hard when he got in he just couldn’t fix the problem. But if ever there was a wrong man for a job at the worst time in our history it was the inexperienced Obama. A man who came into running this country at its weakest time in 80 years. With absolutely no experience in business or governing but with policies designed to make our country into a socialist experiment that he had been studying and teaching his entire adult life.

I pray that the libs who voted for him 4 years ago understand our country cannot bear the weight of his continued experimentation both domestically and with foreign policy. It is costing us American lives. So as in every election year there is always the absolute bottom line.

Are you better off now than you were 4 years ago? Forget feeling sorry for the manipulating View wuss just because he’s black, clever, charismatic or took on too much or that he supposedly tried. Think about the millions upon millions of families that are suffering. Fathers and mothers crying because they can’t pay their light bill, or hearing their children complain of eating beans and rice or having their home for 20 years repossessed  just  because Barack Obama  failed to make things better using his communist father’s vision.

So I ask you, when your favorite football team has a 0 – 16 season every year for 4 years do you expect the owner of the team to feel sorry for the management team? Do you violently and with visceral hatred and profanity  defend the owners right to give that group of people 4 more years because they tried real hard? or do you expect that owner to fire the losing coach?….Well you are the owner of this American team and its your job to fire the losing coach Barack Obama. Wake up america.


Dad, he’s peeing in the kitchen!

So me and the wife decide we need someone to manage our household affairs. After interviewing several choices, we vote as a family. My wife and kids win because they like this guy’s endearing personality. I go along because the  guy  promises to change things in a very positive way. He even gets an award for his recent performances. Well we’re all excited until one day, soon after voting him into our home, I caught him peeing in my kitchen. I brought this up to my wife and kids but they excused it saying that I was  just being unfair. They said it was only because I didn’t vote for him in the first place. Well this goes on and every so often I catch this guy peeing in my kitchen. I got so upset I told some of my neighbors and they just shrugged it off and said I was being too critical.

The next thing I find out is that instead of going through our established household channels, like asking my wife or my permission, he starts taking cash right from our “vacation money” drawer and gives it to our kids; as special gifts for favors! Well now I’m really pee o’d. I can’t take this anymore. But when I talk about it, display any angst or complain I’m laughed at and criticized.

Well let me ask YOU! If this was your house and this was happening to the family you loved and the home you respected. What would you do? Just sit in your arm-chair and let it happen or get off your duff and do something about it. Oh, you might say house managers are all the same no sense getting all excited . Things will eventually be ok. Well that might eventually be so, but what does that say about your self respect or for your house and your family for that matter! I dare say one could accuse you of being derelict as a husband and a father.

Not this American. You disrespect my house and my family you are out on your ears. So come November 6th 2012 what are you going to do. Sit at home in your apathetic loving arm-chair and continue to let the disrespect continue in OUR House or will you at least grow a little courage and say something. I for one am tired of the stink in the kitchen.

And this is a Christian American Opinion,

Please  don’t be in dereliction of your citizen’s duty, vote anti-socialist!

Katie, bar the door and Annie, get your gun

I’m a pretty level-headed guy. I consider myself open-minded and strive to see things from different perspectives (eventually) both agreeable and disagreeable. This past weekend was a real challenge. Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan as his VP running mate. The MSM was on fire from the left. Instead of discussing the attributes and known facts about Paul Ryan all the liberals could do was attack. Some of their attacks were countered with comparisons about President Obama’s policies and programs and their similarities. But the libs could not answer any questions that might shed a bad light on their messiah. Then after I had my fill of the morning shows I went to twitter and Facebook to see how things were trending. It was obvious to me that the liberal comments vs the conservative ones made me feel as though we were watching two different morning programs. I am convinced the Liberals on the left are incapable of having an honest intellectual debate on facts. Liberals are mostly emotionally driven and since the ends justify the means the facts mean nothing. This is a dangerous place to exist politically speaking because every time a despotic dictator takes over a population they do it through twisting facts to paint an emotional picture that panders to the ideology of their followers. So I’ve come to the decision that I will only debate a liberal if they are willing to accept negative facts that represent their side of an issue. If not than it’s war and Katie, bar the door and Annie get your gun!

So for now that’s an American Christian Opinion
