… The Gitmo Detainee Center bails out [#obamacraps]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 22nd,2016

.. the slow bug – out picks up pace …

.. will it keep going ? …

.. to be honest , yes …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. one thing that would help is passing both a separate military appropriations bill and a separate military construction bill . Keep them away from the rest of the apropos battles …

.. that way , you can go to war with POTUS over Gitmo . Tie his hands , and force the DemoCraps hands over Gitmo , as well . It will put DemoCraps on the campaign trail on the spot , whether they like it or not . Good for them …

.. Ditto with other apropos bills . Separate them . Pass them separately . That way , you can minimize the chances of any government shutdown ….

… Quit Messing Around [#call a Spade a Spade]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 31st,2016

.. someone of substance emerges from the ” shadows . ”

.. retired Gen. Michael Flynn [former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency] was testifying before Congress the other day . You think that he would not be political . Well , you would be wrong . Not overtly , mind you . But he mounted the parapets and let the guns open fire at the ObamaCraps …

.. Flynn called for a reorganization of our war effort against the Islamic militant threat . He called for a joint international effort , similar to N.A.T.O. . That was not all , to say the least …

.. to quote General Flynn …

The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency slammed the Obama administration on Monday as “well intentioned” but paralyzed and playing defense inits the fight againstIslamic militancy.Recently retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn called for the U.S. to lead the charge in a sweeping, decades-long campaign against the Islamic State group, al Qaeda, and its ilk—a fight like the one against the former Soviet Union—against a new enemy he said is “committed to the destruction of freedom and the American way of life.”

“There is no substitute, none, for American power,” the general said, to occasional cheers and ultimately a standing ovation from a crowd of special operators and intelligence officers at a Washington industry conference.

He also slammed the administration for refusing to use the term “Islamic militants” in its description of ISIS and al Qaeda.

“You cannot defeat an enemy you do not admit exists,” Flynn said.

He said the administration is unwilling to admit the scope of the problem, naively clinging to the hope that limited counterterrorist intervention will head off the ideological juggernaut of religious militancy.

“There are many sincere people in our government who frankly are paralyzed by this complexity,” said Flynn, so they “accept a defensive posture, reasoning that passivity is less likely to provoke our enemies.”

Flynn refused to name President Obama as the focus of his ire in comments afterward to The Daily Beast, saying that he was simply “sending a message to the American people.” But the comments show the widening rift between some in the national-security community who want to see more special-operations and intelligence assets sent into the fight against ISIS and other groups in Syria and beyond.

… I Worry about Our Country ‘ s Anti – I.S.I.L. policies [#POTUS]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 4th,2016

.. the first point of concern is POTUS himself . POTUS is not willing to commit to anything . He just wants to ” half – ass ” the policy . That is , unfortunately , the largest part of the problem ..

.. the next problem is the policy itself . The ObamaCraps do not take I.S.I.L. serious , not one whit ..

.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. either you go ” all in ” on your chosen path , or you should not mess around with the policy at all . The ObamaCraps are trying to do a ” third way ” and the results are telling . Our country is looking like a bunch of fools …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 3rd,2016

.. in the age that we live in , our nation ‘ s security is paramount . It is not an idle subject . There are countries that are friendly to us who are not our allies . There are [more than that] countries that are adversaries , ones who are not friendly to us at all …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 21st,2016

.. playing tiddlywinks ?? ..

.. recently , while on a deployment cruise in the Baltic Sea , a US Navy guided missile destroyer [a DDG] was ” buzzed ” by a Russian Sukhoi Su – 24 fighter bomber . No , the Sukhoi was not on a training run . It meant business ..

.. It was configured in a war – like posture . No , it did not have training ” shots ” for missiles on itS RAils . It was set up on a war posture ,with war shots set FOR action on its rails ,ready for action ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. so what was the destroyer doing ? Nothing , apparantely . It did not even lock on with its guided missile radar ..

.. its CO should be court – martialed for failing to take any defensive action to protect his command . You let an adverrsary get thatclose to your ship like that , and what happens ?

.. You are dead meat ..
