War in Syria or Somewhere Else?

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

Well, do we go to war with Syria now or someone else? Let me tell you what I mean. If you look at the history of just about every country in the world it is outlined by whatever wars they were in. Most countries boundaries are set up based on whether they won or lost their last war. War is a fact of life. We are always going to have to be ready to fight.

Jesus even said that there will be “wars and rumors of war” throughout time. And these will even intensify as time goes on. We have to be ready. So I think we ought to have the best damn military on the planet, which we do.

But there are a lot of wars going on in the world right now. A lot of civil wars. We have to be wise in choosing which wars we are going to be a part of. This brings us to Syria. I have to be honest, I am not for getting in this one.

It’s funny, I have been asking people what this Syrian civil war is about. No one knows! I have to ask the question, have we as Americans forgotten our recent history with the Middle East? Think about this, when Iran was fighting Iraq, we choose to support Iraq. They were led by that young sterling guy, Saddam Hussein. We gave him guns and all kinds of support. Well that sure came back to bite us.

Then, when the Russians were battling in Afghanistan and causing all kinds of trouble. We supported those freedom fighters, young rebels, led by that little man – Osama bin Laden. We gave him guns and support. Well, that came back to bite us, too.

Who are we going to choose in Syria? Which side will we support? Will we go with Assad or the rebels. What is the whole thing about? What we know is that it is an in-country political battle. I have to say no right now. Let them do whatever they are going to do. I don’t understand the big issue over chemical weapons since Assad’s army had already killed over 100,000 people. But remember, it is a civil war. Since Assad has the military it does give him a slight advantage. All we can do is make the rebels a little tougher. I say, no.

Here’s what I would do. Go ahead and get ready in the gulf with our Navy. And remember that our best friend in the Middle East is not Muslim, they are Jewish. The nation is Israel. The biggest risk is that what is happening in Syria will spill over into Israel. We need to be ready to fight with them and protect them. They are our best friends.

So for now, I say no to Syria.

What is Our Greatest Weapon Against Exploding Underwear?

Monday, December 28th, 2009

I could not resist that title after learning the terrorist aboard the flight to Detroit had the bomb ingredients sewn in his underpants. Growing up with all brothers, exploding underwear has an entirely different meaning, but this is now serious business. What happened on this flight is the key to stopping future terrorist attacks. Everyone today is saying that our security failed, I say just the opposite. (more…)

Does the Military Need a New Deck of Cards?

Friday, December 11th, 2009

The press has chronicled the failures of the Iraq War over and over. One idea, however, was undeniably successful and might help in our current Afghanistan/Al Qaeda war. The military developed a set of playing cards to help the troops identify the most-wanted members of Saddam’s inner evil circle. Saddam was the ace of spades. It was fun watching the news those days to see who would be nabbed next. (more…)

How do sissies win a fight?

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

They don’t, but they do play nice. General Stanley A McChrystal, the top commander in the war in Afghanistan, warned this week that “mission failure” was possible. A poll said 59% of Americans are less confident and 28% are more confident of success in the war. I am 100% sure we can win the war. It is not enough to have the best soldiers, training, and equipment. It’s time for change that the Taliban and Al Queda can believe in! (more…)
