As usual, Jed Babbin nails the subject well. The appointment of new, true warriors like Fox and Petraeus may just allow us to turn the tide as far as the Iraq War is concerned and break the back of the insurgency. His 5-point strategy in the latter part of the article is spot-on!
I would like to see Fox and Petraeus take a page (or 2 or 6) from retired Army Col. David Hunt, one of the best military experts at Fox News. Hunt advocates in chapter 7 of his book, They Just Don’t Get It, further expansion and better use of our Special Forces (Seals, Rangers, Green Berets and others) in tracking down and exterminating the vermin that are causing the problems currently occurring in Iraq. While I have monumental respect for all our fighting men and women, we need to unleash these professional in order to put an end to the enemy. And target number one should be the fat, ugly boy with bad teeth, Muqtada-al-Sadr, and the rest of his motley crew militia. This dirtbag should have been taken out early on before he was able to put together his sizable band of renegades, and not doing so was a big mistake. Enough of this namby-pamby approach to war, we’ve handled the insurgents with kid-gloves for far too long a period of time. This is war, and we need to fight it like we want to win it. We fought basically a traditional ground war in toppling Saddam Hussein and now we need to change tactics.p>Now we need to take on the terrorist resistance, and to quote Col. Hunt: “Let me put it simply. Kill them all”. br> — Jim Bjaloncik br> Stow, Ohio /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
