Dum Pendebat Filius

A sniff in the kortevar, that what you cry for, yeled? A prert up the cull, a prang on the dumpendebat?

Bad news, good news

The bad news:

More than four years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, U.S. intelligence agencies are still failing to share information while Congress battles over security funding, a panel that investigated the terrorist hijackings will conclude in a new report to be released Monday.

In interviews Friday, members of the former Sept. 11 commission said the government should receive a dismal grade for its lack of urgency in enacting strong security measures to prevent terrorist attacks.

The good news:

  • Iraq is the central front in our Global War on Terror.
  • We’re fighting “The Terrorists” in Iraq so that we won’t have to fight them here in the USA. And we are winning, despite the Left/Liberal MSM’s refusal to tell you that.
  • Our refusal to seriously entertain any thoughts of withdrawing our armed forces from Iraq is a sign of toughness and strength to the rest of the world. As long as “The Terrorists” see how tough we are, they will be too afraid to try any attacks in America.

So turn that frown upside down, readers. We’ve got nothing to worry about.

  1. RP:

    Heard recently from young marine and former student:

    “I hate all of those fucking Iraqis. They are either insurgents, breeders of insurgents, or will grow up to be insurgents. I want every fucking one of them dead.”

    This is from a kid with a truly priviledged backgroud: his father is a circuit judge; his mother is the first female president of the yacht club. Emboldened by the patriotic fervor with which he was welcomed home, he recounted every horror he could remember with enough gusto to make even the most hawkish of my school’s faculty uneasy. Because he knew of my own service he came to me to brag of the doors he had kicked in, the bodies of the dead he had blown to smithereens (combat engineer), and the trophies he had smuggled back to the states (prayer books, id cards, watches, etc.).

    This is a kid completely fucked in the head. He is worse off mentally than if he had spend 2 years in the joint–totally lost. He won’t go back to VMI where he enlisted in the Reserve either. He has a taste for it.

    Even S.E.A.L.S. used to be taught what it means to be an American.

    We’re a lost cause.

    Are we a lost cause? Is there any reason for any continued optimism?
