Outrage II: The US Military Surrenders to Extortionists

Posted by Mark on November 16, 2004

The left is alive and well, at least at the ACLU. They continue their unrelenting war against the Boy Scouts. The latest casualty is the US military itself. Doesn’t the ACLU have anything better to do, like robbing homeless people who wear religious jewelry in public parks? How sad that they have attacked the very organizations that has promoted freedom for decades, the US Armed Forces and the Boy Scouts of America.

Outrage I: The Laws of War

Posted by Mark on November 16, 2004

In Fallujah, a marine killed a terrorist who was apparently faking being dead. The marine had just been shot in the face the day before by a terrorist. He had witnessed, or at least heard about, other marines being injured or killed by booby trapped bodies. And he made a decision based on that.

The MSM lost the election. They went from their wonderful tracking polls showing Kerry winning in a landslide, to watching Condi Rice nominated for Secretary of State. They did everything they could to turn Iraq into Vietnam, and failed. And they’ve made a decision based on that.

They will seek to turn this incident into Abu Ghraib, regardless of the actual facts of the case. Is it any wonder people are turning off their TVs and turning on the blogs for information and analysis?

An Update:

I’m not a big Michael Savage fan. But tonight he said some things I firmly agree with. The soldier who shot the terrorist very likely does not need to stand trial. And the President needs to stand up and say so. His leadership is needed to quell the MSM feeding frenzy. This time, the MSM is feeding on a young Marine doing his job, killing terrorists.

We are at war. I think most Americans do not have the knowledge of history to fully understand what that means. Understanding World War II, especially the Pacific war, may help. The Japanese were vicious enemies. It was not unusual for a wounded Japanese soldier to shoot the American medic who came to help him. Per Michael Savage, an order went out to shoot Japanese wounded before touching them, due to the number of Americans killed by “wounded” Japanese soldiers.

We face the same thing in Iraq, and will face this on other fronts in World War IV. WW II was Total War. We have yet to come to grips with the idea that WWIV must also be Total War if we are to win.

PLEASE Give Us A Playoff For Division I Football!!

Posted by Mark on November 16, 2004

This is just plain ridiculous:

Computers prefer Oklahoma over Auburn – and Southern California.

The Sooners held on to second place in the Bowl Championship Series standings Monday, staying ahead of third-place Auburn because of a stronger computer ranking.

USC is still first the BCS standings with a grade of .9808. Oklahoma’s grade is .9621, and Auburn’s is .9350.

Last week, the Sooners led the Tigers by .0567. That lead is down to .0271.

The Trojans, Sooners and Tigers are all 10-0. Each has two games left and one loss by any of them would provide a simple solution to what is shaping up to be another BCS mess. The top two teams in the final BCS standings will play in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 4 for the national title.

Since the BCS’ inception in 1998, there’s never been three undefeated teams after the regular season in the six BCS conference – Big East, Big 12, Big Ten, Atlantic Coast Conference, Pac-10 and Southeastern Conference.

This is worse than before we had this stupid BCS system. Come on. 16 teams, 4 weeks. How hard can this be???
