    Hi Polgara

    The original historical phrase is "One riot, one Texas ranger."

    Historically before recent liberal revisionist history. it was about an illegal boxing prize fight match and the local Mexicans going from being lazy pinto beans to becoming Mexican jumping beans on the streets of El Paso and the surrounding area.

    The local authorties telegraphed the Governor of Texas requesting help. A couple of days later the train rolled into El Paso and one Texas Ranger got off the train. The local officials asked where are the other Rangers ? The Texas Ranger said "One riot, one Texas Ranger."

    In the past twenty or so years the liberal historians (revisionist) have been attacking the Texas Rangers history because they never have been politically correct. No other American law enforcement agency has shot and killed so many Mexicans than the Texas Rangers. The Texas Rangers is one of the oldest law enforcement agencies in America. Before the creation of the U.S. Border Patrol, it was the Texas Rangers who protected the border along the Rio Grande. And they did a better job than the federal government ever has.

    The Texas Rangers were the elite "peace officers" and Indian fighters of America. They are Americana.
    It's a disgrace that the liberal revisionist are targeting the Texas Rangers.
    But isn't that what liberal revisionit do, attack Americana ?

    Re: 1/5 th of the USN surface warships depart the Mediterranean Sea.

    Point 1) IIRC, in mid-June the USS Kearsarge and the USS San Antonio docked in the Jordanian port of Aqaba as part of Exercise Eager Lion 2013 which is an annual exercise with allies in the region. Before the warships departed for Eilat, Israel however, around 300 US Marines from the 26th MEU remained in Jordan. Their task was to assist in training Syrian rebels in Jordan. The first unit of these US trained rebels entered Syria from Jordan only a few days before the gas attack on August 21.

    Point 2) Granting overflight rights to US cruise-missiles is technically not launching an attack from Jordanian soil.

But remember back when once a ship left it's homeport it was always refuel at sea ? Which was brought up during the investigation of the Al Qaeda attack on the USS Cole. Why did the Cole had to go to a some what unfriendly foreign port to refuel ? Because almost half of the Navy's oilers were decommissioned during the Clinton administration. The fleet was over downsized.
    I can see where you would consider me bad, having made your arguments look stupid. Right now in the area within strike range we have 2 carrier groups and 4 additional destroyers, plus unknown numbers of subs. Sending home a destroyer that is already 8 months deployed and overdue to go home is just stripping our forces...

    By the way, there is now a carrier in the Red Sea and Arabian Gulf performing flight ops, despite you thinking we don't do that.

    Good morning, apdst.

    So it appears we have been arming and training the rebels, many of whom are AlQueda (sp) for quite some time! It figures! We don't have enough problems in our own country that are being ignored, but need to be be handled? Who makes those decisions, and why do we get involved in overthrowing governments? Isn't that for the people involved to decide, which they will ultimately do, if Egypt is any indication.

    I read this morning that the House is trending six to one against a strike in Syria, while the Senate is more evenly divided at this point. It will be interesting to see the actual vote when it occurs, because the American public is apparently letting DC know their feelings about this. :

    They use to shoot Mexicans. Today they just slap the cuffs on the bandino while shaking their hand.
    Very impressive. You would think other law enforcement agencies would follow suit instead of using SWATT when arresting some 70 year old lady for failure of paying a parking ticket.

    Ooops ! Was I suppose to even mention that ?
