.. this hopefully should help with protecting the country ‘ s borders …

.. Egypt can wipe its own fannie . All they need is the technology and the training . They do not need our people to man them ..

.. whether it will help or not is open to question . It needs to be part of a comprehensive strategy to protect Egypt . Egypt needs to develop lightning quick response forces [air and ground] to respond to the threat …

… Free At Last [#free Meriam]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 29th,2014

.. she is free , thank God .

.. Meriam Ibrahim , the brave Sudanese Christian woman / mother / activist , has been freed by a Sudanese appeals court . Part of me wonders why ?? ..

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the article ..

.. I think that the Sudanese realized that her case was costing them dearly in the Court of World Public Opinion . It was far easier to free her , and see to it that she , her husband , and their children would get safely out of the country .Which was very smart …

.. the Sudanese know that she is still in danger . There are many , many zealots in Sudan , in particular , in and around Khartoum [the capital] . They would reap a publicity bonanza by hunting her down and killing her & her family . Which is why she is in secure seclusion , with the help of the Government . They want her gone , preferably anywhere else …

… A Martyr for her Faith [Christian convert in Sudan] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 7th,2014

.. please pray for Meriam Ibrahim . She is a 27 – year – old Sudanese woman , a mother , one who is eight months pregnant and also has a child ..

.. she has been sentenced to death under Sudan ‘ s brutal and inhumane form of shariah law . She has been found guilty of apostasy ( her  conversion to Christianity) and adultery (her marriage to a Christian man was not recognized ) .

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..

.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. there needs to be international pressure in order to force Sudan to drop and withdraw this brutal form of inhumanity …

… Congress Should Return to D.C. [Now] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 3rd,2013

Congress should Return to D.C.

.. god knows that there is enough work to do . ObamaCrapCare being the chief problem , among them . The Budget is another . There are others .

.. There is also the potential of military action in the Middle East . Yes , yet again . The debate should not be limited just to Syria , however . Syria is but a puppet . The mullahs in Qum (Iran) are the puppetteers .

.. Assad and his cronies would not still be in power , except for the financial and military support of Iran . Syria is also a critical choke point in Iran ‘ s foreign policy , as well . Hizbullah would be lost , without Iran . They are a chief pain in the backside for Israel . Hamas is another . Same cause . Both rely on support from Qum , and would be lost without it . Ditto Sudan .

.. Sudan is in even a weaker a position . With the diplomatic weakness of the ObamaCraps , the goons in Khartoum can behave like bullies , especially towards South Sudan . In this case , Sudan also has the indirect support of China . However , a decisive move by the U.S. and the Europeans to stop it would effectively push the Chinese away . Sudan is too far from home , and too close to Europe . China is not stupid , and is also not yet strong enough as a naval power to project that kind of military power that far from home , almost in the backyard of one of its chief adversaries , India .

.. Iran would not be stupid enough to push for a direct challenge . But , they could do so around the edges . Obama is a wus . He does not understand the real meaning of the word power . If he did , Iran would not play around the way that they do .

.. Congress needs to defend its institutional prerogatives . POTUS is the Commander – in – Chief . Congress , though , declares wars , and pays the bills . The House of Representatives should not let itself be run over and played like a chump . It should act , and , if necessary , come back on its own . If it did , the Senate would be forced to follow suit .

.. Each chamber is in control of the opposite party . But the two chambers should act , for once , to defend the legislature ‘ s turf where it has it in evaluating and setting foreign policy . To not do so is misfeasance in office .
