    Thank you. More evidence that 'isolationists and anti-war nimrods' have absolutely no effect, no say so at all, on the foreign policy decisions of the federal government.

    Right wing US radicals are more of a threat to our security than foreign terrorists, says a new study.
    Stop quoting the Southern Poverty Law Center study, it's an ignorant, bias piece of crap by a left wing propaganda machine.

    I don't believe it's The Long War because the federal government wants it that way. It's The Long War because those who seek our destruction are committed to long term aggression.

    I beg to differ. It is the Long War because those who profit from war just happen to have a bunch of influence inside the beltway. The GWOT is meant to be waged, not won. Permanent conflict is good for business, as Ike warned about.

    Not only wrong, but insulting to those who bear the burden of defending you.

    May I tell you something Jack?

    When I did my little time in RVN, I was defending nobody. Even though pseudo-patriotism afflicts so many today that if RVN is even mentioned, people fawningly say "thanks for your service", implying that I somehow saved the US by my actions there.

    I was defending nobody there, because RVN was no threat to the US. Remember, WE invaded THEM.

    And my nephew and other youngsters who have gone to Iraq and Afghanistan, and those automatons who man the Predators and other drones, do not defend me from anything at all. Like me 40 years ago, they are but sock puppets doing what they are told.

    So may I ask that in the future to please spare me the sanctimonious pseudo-patriotism shown by "who is defending who from what" sort of spin. Thanks much.

    I'm sorry you feel that way. Friends of mine have died or been grievously wounded to defend your free speech. Call it sanctimonious if you will but you owe them, regardless of whether you acknowledge your debt.

    I don't think it would matter USC. Nor by how many.



    Islamic Terror Warnings Issued Ahead of July 4th Weekend.....

    The FBI and Department of Homeland Security have issued official warnings about the upcoming holiday weekend.

    Federal authorities have warned local law enforcement officials across the country about a heightened concern involving possible terror attacks targeting the July 4th holiday, a U.S. law enforcement official said. While there was no specific or credible threat of attack, the official said the intelligence bulletin prepared by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI alerted local colleagues to the ongoing threats posed by the Islamic State and other homegrown extremists. The official was not authorized to comment publicly.

    Two weeks ago House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes told CBS the United States faces its highest threat since after 9/11. Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee Michael McCaul has echoed that sentiment.....snip~

    The "new study" decided to start the body count AFTER 9/11/01, and their categorization of the politics of perpetrators since 9/11 is also questionable.

    Lies, damn lies and statistics.
