… I ‘ ll Bet Obama will love This [#army takeover of Pakistan]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 8th,2014

.. the army is an institution in Pakistan , probably as much , if not more than it is in Egypt .

.. it also has a habit of stepping in and taking over control of the government from the civilian authorities .

.. no , not that I am in favour of that . Normally , as an American , and as a conservative , I am not . Sometimes , though , it is necessary ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [link] to the column ..

.. it is needed when the civilian authorities act to subvert the constitution , and take the country down the wrong road . That wrong road is often the road of tyranny , bloodshed , and hellishness . Egypt ‘ s army intervened to stop the Muslim Brotherhood from doing this . Might Pakistan ‘ s army do the same , again ?

.. given the problems with the Pakistani version of the  Taliban [an even bloodier version than its Afghanistani counterpart] , the army has stepped in . The country ‘ s president , Nawaz Sharif , has not been pushed out , yet …. but give it time …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 14th,2014

.. you may ask , why ? ..

.. [link] to the video segment ..

.. it is because these scumbags are being far more honest about their motives and their movements than the ObamaCrap Administration has been . Everything that the ObamaCraps have been telling us , including His Lordship , has been a lie . How sick is that …

… Now , What will this Scumbag do for a Defense ? Plead Insanity ?

Accused Fort Hood Gunman Cannot Use Defending Taliban Defense

..  Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Hasan cannot argue at trial that he was defending the Afghan Taliban when he opened fire in a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, that killed 13 people, a military judge ruled on Friday. ” There was no evidence that there was any immediate threat to others from your fellow soldiers,” Colonel Tara Osborn said, denying Hasan ‘ s request to use the defense as he represents himself at his upcoming trial on 13 counts of first-degree murder.

.. Hasan, a 42-year-old U.S.-born Muslim, is accused of killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in an attack on soldiers at a readiness facility where many of those shot were preparing to deploy to Iraq or Afghanistan.

.. ” I object , ” Hasan said when the judge ruled that he could not use his chosen defense. He also asked Osborn to delay the court martial by three months to allow him to prepare a new defense strategy and add to the witness lists. Osborn did not rule on that request .

.. With this guy , he is some piece of work . People deserve justice , not stalling . Strip him of his pro – se rights [to defend himself , with himself as a lawyer] , and reinstate his standby counsel . Get the damn court – martial under way . His victims deserve a timely decision on the merits . Hasan does not .

..  Hasan deserves an adequate , but not the 4 – corners strategy that he has been using . Move things along , and let the appeals court referree while the court – martial proceeds .
