Harry Reid And the Holy Grail
Topic: Iraq War
When I look at Harry Reid for some reason I am reminded of Monty Python. I mean doesn't he look he belongs in a Monty Python skit?




And of course it is not too hard to figure out which skit he would fit in best,
not with his constant litany of "Run away, RUN AWAY!"



Even before the New Counterinsurgency protocol has even been fully implement he has already labeled it a failure and our military leaders on the ground as incompetent.

Someone refresh my memory? When exactly did our Harry graduate from the War College?

Can you just imagine how this Nation would have fared if we had had political leaders of this stripe during earlier times of crisis?

Harry Reid on the Normandy Invasion:

Omaha Beach was the bloodiest landing beach on D-Day. Elements of the 1st Infantry Division and 29th Infantry Division faced the German 352nd Infantry Division, one of the best trained on the beaches. Allied intelligence failed to realize that the relatively low-quality 716th Infantry Division (static) had been replaced by the 352nd a few days before the invasion. Omaha was also the most heavily fortified beach, and the pre-landing aerial and naval bombardment of the bunkers proved to be ineffective. On the Eastern sector, 27 of the 32 Sherman DD tanks deployed never reached the beach. On the Western sector the Sherman DDs were landed directly on the beach, but suffered heavy losses due to German artillery defending the beach. The official record stated that "within 10 minutes of the ramps being lowered, [the leading] company had become inert, leaderless and almost incapable of action. Every officer and sergeant had been killed or wounded [...] It had become a struggle for survival and rescue". There were about 2,400 casualties on Omaha on D-day, most in the first few hours. Commanders considered abandoning the beachhead, but small units, often forming ad hoc groups, eventually took the beach and pressed inland.

Initial assault

"I was the first one out. The seventh man was the next one to get across the beach without being hit. All the ones in-between were hit. Two were killed; three were injured. That?s how lucky you had to be." Captain Richard Merrill, 2nd Ranger Battalion.[6]

Nothing went to plan.



I can just hear Harry screaming about the incompetence of the Allied commanders and demanding we declare defeat and surrender to the Germans?

It's good thing he was not in political power then.


How about WW1?

The Battle of Cantigny

The first sustained American offensive of the war, although a minor action in itself, the Battle of Cantigny was fought on 28 May 1918, the second day of the great German offensive comprising the Third Battle of the Aisne.

A regiment of the American 1st Division (some 4,000 troops), under Major-General Robert Lee Bullard, captured the village of Cantigny, held by the German Eighteenth Army commanded by von Hutier and the site of a German advance observation point, strongly fortified.

Aiding the attack, the French provided both air cover in addition to 368 heavy guns and trench mortars, plus flamethrower teams. The advancing American infantry were preceded into the village by twelve French tanks following a two-hour advance artillery barrage.

In taking the village the Americans expanded their front by approximately a mile. A minor success, its significance was entirely overshadowed by the battle underway along the Aisne, some fifty miles to the north-west.

In the face of seven fierce counter-attacks that day and the next the U.S. forces held their position with the loss of 1,067 casualties; they captured around 100 German prisoners. The American success at Cantigny was followed by attacks at Chateau-Thierry and Belleau Wood in the first half of June.


Or the Civil War? As I recall the Democratic Party of that day wanted the Lincoln driven out of office, the War declared over and the South left to go its own way.

Had they had their way this country would have been split in two, there would have been no Emancipation Proclamation and Slavery would have continued on this continent.

Or how about the War of 1812? That was not what one would call a well run military campaign. I mean our Capital was burned? I can just imagine Harry demanding that Andrew Jackson stand down and not oppose the British invasion of New Orleans, because it would hender our Peace talks with the British.

Or might we consider the Revolutionary War? In May of 178o a little over 5 years from the first shots in Lexignton that marked the start of the War, Charleston South Carolina fell to the British and General Lincoln and his entire army surrendered/

Harry would have sued for mercy and we would have continued as Colonies.

The Nation is indeed fortunate that Runaway Reid was not around during these earlier times to influence National Policy.

Because for Harry, the Holy Grail is defeating the Republican, not our Nation's enemies

UPDATE: Denmark Exports Soaring
After blogger Judith Klinghoffer and an army of Davids declared a "Buy Danish" campaign to combat the Muslim boycott. The Guardian says "fervent rightwing Americans" participated in the buying spree and implies that the cartoonists were responsible for the deaths of 139 people.(like it was the cartoonists who killed those people instead of the ones who shed their blood, how like the Progressive TransNazi viewpoint)

"Der er et yndigt land" (There Is A Lovely Land)


Words by: Adam Gottlob Oehlenschlager
Music by: Hans Ernst Kr?yer
Adopted: 1844

"Derer et yndigt land" was first performed for a large gathering of Danes in 1844, and became popular quickly with the Danish people. It was adopted later that year by the Danish government as a national anthem, but not the sole national anthem. This anthem is on equal status with "Kong Christian",which is both the national and royal anthem.

When the Danish anthem is usually performed or sung, the first verse is played in its entirety, then it is followed by the last four lines of the last verse. (This is true whether the lyrics are sung or not



Recently I have been posting music to Illustrate the Diversity of America, this week I have a different motive to express Solidarity with DENMARK


I maintain my Support of Denmark, and will later today, post links to and my thoughts about a Danish Editorial "We are being pissed upon by Per Nyholm "

I think I shall title my Post, "There is no "But" in "Freedom of Speech".




When I first started upon my journey through the blogverse I created a
Statement of Purpose
Now upon reading it, one can realize that I did not hold to every detail of that original statement, but from it's basic premise, I have never swayed, in my belief that the Blogs are in fact the Committees of Correspondence of the Second American Revolution.

And that it is a Revolution of Information, no longer can we afford and allow elite gateways to control what we can see, hear and discuss.

For I believe that those bloggers who find their way, here and in particular from the Blogs associated with Sam.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY.

Some of us are more Serious, some of us are more lighthearted and some post the common ordinary things that make one smile and recall that Life without the simple things to treasure is meaningless.

And it is important that all have a platform from which to speak.

The Sex Workers In My District Objected.
From David's Medienkritik in Democrat Tom Lantos Implies Gerhard Schroeder is Lower than "Political Prostitute


"Speaking at the dedication ceremony for a victims of communism memorial in Washington, Lantos said their departure from the European scene heralded a closer relationship in the Atlantic alliance, which was badly splintered over Washington's decision to launch the invasion of Iraq without strong European support.

Lantos' remarks reflected the lingering bitterness over French and German opposition to the war, as he recalled how the US saved Europe from fascism and protected it from communism for generations. He said the two leaders had turned their backs to the US and its fight against the next wave of tyranny, Islamic fascism.

The congressman then provoked gasps of amusement and surprise in the crowd of several hundred when he said he would like to call Schroeder 'a political prostitute, now that he's taking big cheques from (Russian President Vladimir) Putin.

But the sex workers in my district objected.'

During his final weeks in office in 2005, Schroeder signed an agreement between Germany and Russia to build a pipeline under the Baltic Sea to supply gas directly to Germany.

After leaving office, he became chairman of the North European Gas Pipeline, which is 51-per-cent owned by Russian state natural gas company Gazprom - a move that provoked outrage in Germany.

Russia has used its energy reserves as a political chip in its continuing bid for hegemony in eastern Europe, and has come under severe criticism for repression of press and other freedoms."




As Medienkritik points out if Landon was a Republican, Neo-Con, Cowboy, from Texas, they Legacy Media would be frothing at the mouth in righteous indignation and condemnation.

But since he is a Democrat, Holocaust Survivor, formerly from Eastern Europe and now the Represntative in the US House for the 12th Congressional District of California

You will not hear much about his statements at the dedication of the memorial to the 100 Million Dead
(Victims of Communism Memorial)


Because his words cannot be used to hurl slurs at George Bush and also, possibly because,

if your politics are on the Progressive Socialist Left of the spectrum,

a memorial to keep alive the memory that International Socialism was repsonsible for more megadeath genocide than any other ideology in the 20th Century may, be personally embarrasing.

Don't you just love youtube? Don't have to read edited versions of a speech, you can listen to it.

Don't Shoot, We're Not Jews
From Iris Blog to my email inbox to you.

Hamas Takes Control of Gaza

It appears that Hamas has consolidated power in Gaza, confirming repeated predictions on this blog prior to the Israeli pullout of August 2005 that Gaza would become Hamastan as a result:

Hamas Orders Rivals to Surrender as Gaza Falls Under Its Control


Hamas' most spectacular attack was the detonation of a one-ton tunnel bomb under a Fatah security headquarters in Khan Yunis. The ambush, which was apparently weeks in the planning, killed at least six and appeared to give Hamas control of the strategic southern town. In the border town of Rafah, Hamas fighters hoisted Hamas flags over the smoldering wreckage of the border security post as reports emerged of Fatah forces fleeing across the border into Egypt. In Gaza City, hundreds of Fatah loyalists from the influential Bakr clan surrendered to Hamas militants who had laid siege to their compound.

On Wednesday about 1,000 Palestinians protesting against the violence marched through Gaza City, drawing gunfire that killed two of the demonstrators and wounded four others. The prospect of Hamas taking control of Gaza has terrified its secular residents, who fear that Islamist rule will be imposed.


Palestinian protestors against violence were killed by the gunmen.

See also:"
Don't Shoot, We're Not Jews"



The Fatah security services ruled Gaza City for 15 years but are now holed up in fortified bunkers awaiting a fully-fledged assault by Hamas. "They're firing at us, firing RPGs, firing mortars. We're not Jews," the brother of Jamal Abu Jediyan, a Fatah commander, pleaded during a live telephone conversation with a Palestinian radio station.


Minutes later both men were dragged into the streets and riddled with bullets.



Which as it turns out was not an isolated incident, consider.


the Fatah commander Jamal Abu Sedian was shot 41 times after being pulled out of an ambulance inside the gates of the Kamal Adwan hospital.


You would think it would not take 41 bullets to kill someone pulled out of an ambulance. Are they just poor shots are just inhuman scum?


How many times have heard the excuses for atrocities committed by these gallant warriors? That they have to resort to acts of terrorism because the forces arrayed against them have over powering force?

What over powering force did an unarmed helpless man
on a stretcher threaten them with?

Or the children of a Fatah leader gunned down on their way to school?

Religious leader in Gaza: Child killers must die

Tensions grow between Hamas, Fatah following murder of three young sons of Fatah official. Gaza's former mufti rules that murderers must be executed; top Fatah official Mohammad Dahlan wipes tear, warns if Hamas fails to arrest killers, 'we'll take measures this government has yet to witness'

Ali Waked and AP Published: 12.11.06, 23:36 / Israel News




Open war between Fatah and Hamas: Thousands on Monday evening attended the funeral of three young sons of a Palestinian security officer who were killed by gunmen riddling the car taking them to school with more than 60 bullets.


So it takes 41 bullets to kill a man dragged out of an ambulance, and 60 to murder 3 little boys.

They commit these atrocities because they are vermin, there can be no excuses for such behavior.

Ideology versus Economics
Topic: Global Warming

Western Civilization is based on an Economic System called Capitalism.

It is my personal opinion that this system is mankind's first and best attempt to operate on some paradigm other than plunder and pillage.

The concept that a mutually agreed upon free exchange is preferable to a society based upon the acquisition of needs by force.

For the better part of the 20th Century our Way of Life was opposed by a Society that made decision based upon concerns of Ideology rather than Economics.

In fact Economic realities were ignored in the pursuit of Ideological Purity.

Anyone who has been reading here for awhile may understand my utter surprise to find that I am on the same side of a debate with the People's Republic of China.

It seems that today it is our Political Leaders who are basing decisions which affect one of the fundamental areas of our Society, our Energy Supply, upon Ideological basis rather than Economic ones.

It is the People's Republic of China which has come to certain decisions for economically sound reasons, not us this time.


Report: China to Block Ethanol Production

Report: China to Block Ethanol Production From Corn, Other Food Crops


BEIJING (AP) -- China is putting a moratorium on projects to make ethanol from corn and other food crops, telling producers to switch to crops not widely eaten in China, such as sorghum, a state news agency reported Monday.



China is promoting ethanol in an effort to reduce reliance on imported oil but worries that demand for raw material could push up food prices and the need for scarce farmland.

"Food-based ethanol fuel will not be the direction for China," the Xinhua News Agency quoted Xu Dingming, an official of the National Energy Leading Group, as saying at a weekend energy seminar.

The government plans to ask producers to switch to crops such as cassava and sorghum, Xinhua said, citing an official of China's top planning agency, the National Development and Reform Commission.

The government "has been trying to avoid occupation of arable land, consumption of large amount of grain and damages to the environment in developing the renewable energies," the agency said.

Four Chinese companies currently make corn-based ethanol, with a total annual production capacity of just over 1 million tons, according to Xinhua.

China Oil and Food Corp., owner of the one of the ethanol producers, plans to focus on sorghum, its president Yu Xubo, was quoted as saying at the seminar.



Yes it seem they are concerned about the economic effects on food supply, that ethanol costs more than alternate energy sources, and the fact that the total environmental costs of ethanol production as an energy source may be counterproductive,

Me and the Chinese Communists agree on something.

Amazing.

Oh and our leaders it seems are promoting Ethanol and Biofuels based not upon Economic concerns but in an attempt at Global Climate Ideological Purity.

We pay more for even partial ethanol fuels, we may not see this at the pumps, because it is subsidized with our Tax dollars, but we pay extra for it anyway.

As a result the price of grain climbs and effects the food supply of the poorest segments of the world's population.

This is not the way to find alternate energy supplies. This is not the philosophy that made our Nation Great.

The Leagcy Of Charles The Hammer
Topic: Eurabia
A little under 1300 years ago, Charles the Hammer won the defining battle for the future of Europe at Tours France.

The Battle of Tours:

732



October 10, 732 AD marks the conclusion of the Battle of Tours, arguably one of the most decisive battles in all of history.

A Moslem army, in a crusading search for land and the end of Christianity, after the conquest of Syria, Egypt, and North Africa, began to invade Western Europe under the leadership of Abd-er Rahman, governor of Spain. Abd-er Rahman led an infantry of 60,000 to 400,000 soldiers across the Western Pyrenees and toward the Loire River, but they were met just outside the city of Tours by Charles Martel, known as the Hammer, and the Frankish Army.





Martel gathered his forces directly in the path of the oncoming Moslem army and prepared to defend themselves by using a phalanx style of combat. The invading Moslems rushed forward, relying on the slashing tactics and overwhelming number of horsemen that had brought them victories in the past. However, the French Army, composed of foot soldiers armed only with swords, shields, axes, javelins, and daggers, was well trained. Despite the effectiveness of the Moslem army in previous battles, the terrain caused them a disadvantage. Their strength lied within their cavalry, armed with large swords and lances, which along with their baggage mules, limited their mobility. The French army displayed great ardency in withstanding the ferocious attack. It was one of the rare times in the Middle Ages when infantry held its ground against a mounted attack. The exact length of the battle is undetermined; Arab sources claim that it was a two day battle whereas Christian sources hold that the fighting clamored on for seven days. In either case, the battle ended when the French captured and killed Abd-er Rahman. The Moslem army withdrew peacefully overnight and even though Martel expected a surprise retaliation, there was none. For the Moslems, the death of their leader caused a sharp setback and they had no choice but to retreat back across the Pyrenees, never to return again.

Not only did this prove to be an extremely decisive battle for the Christians, but the Battle of Tours is considered the high water mark of the Moslem invasion of Western Europe.


In recent times some have come to belief that Europe and France in particular has and is being probed by the same forces that attacked it all those centuries ago.

Virtually, philosophically and at times in reality France has been under attack and in flames



The political focus of the Left in Europe has been more interested in proving to the world that the United States is the World's Greatest Terrorist State, than taking action against the real thing inside their borders.

There have been some hopeful signs recently that the Conservative Right has not only turned it's attention to this danger, but has galvanized the populace.

One case in point has been the recent French Parliamentary Elections.



The Blue areas are the Conservative Party in case you have some doubt.

This trend first became noticeable earlier this Spring during the Presidential Elections and appears to have broadened.






One hopes these events are signs that the Legacy of Charles the Hammer has not died.

There were some extreme reactions to these turns of events.




One wonders if there will be another round of the same violence in responce to these newest election results.

We must wish and hope for the New French Government the Best.

Otherwise the Map of the French Presidential Elections above?

May be dupiicated before the end of this Century, but instead of demarking French Political Parties it may mark the boundaries of the Sixth Republic and the Kaliphate of Paris.

English As A Primary Language
Topic: Immigration
ESL or English as a Secondary Language is a well known concept in America. After all 33.5 Million US residents, some 11.7% of the population are Foreign Born and quite a few of them had to learn English as a Second Language. Those of course are the official figures, Legal Resident Aliens and Naturalized Citizens, add to that some 12 Million Illegal Aliens.

All of this has been a matter of grave debate recently and various laws are being debated in Congress.

I won't speak on the main focus of the latest Immigration Legislation, that has been done extensively over broad regions of the Internet.

There was one amendment I chanced upon that got my immediate attention. I really do hope that it or some version of it becomes US Law.

I am speaking of the Inhofe amendment to require English as official language

It can be found Here

S.Amdt. 1151: To amend title 4, United States Code, to declare English as the.

To amend title 4, United States Code, to declare English as the national language of the Government of the United States, and for other purposes.

An amendment to S. 1348: A bill to provide for comprehensive immigration reform and for other purposes.
Offered: May 22, 2007
Sponsor: Sen. James Inhofe [R-OK]
Actions:
Jun 6, 2007: Amendment SA 1151 proposed by Senator Reid for Senator Inhofe to Amendment SA 1150.
Jun 6, 2007: Amendment SA 1151 agreed to in Senate by Yea-Nay Vote. 64 - 33. Record Vote Number: 198. [Vote Details]


Here is a graphic presentation of the voting and more information on the voting.







Text of amendment

SA 1151. Mr. INHOFE (for himself, Mr. Alexander, Mr. Sessions, Mr. Enzi, Mr. Chambliss, Mr. Burr, Mr. Isakson, Mr. Bunning, and Mr. Coleman) submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill S. 1348, to provide for comprehensive immigration reform and for other purposes; which was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:

Strike section 702 and insert the following:

SEC. 702. ENGLISH AS NATIONAL LANGUAGE.

(a) Short Title.--This section may be cited as the ``S.I. Hayakawa National Language Amendment Act of 2007''.

(b) In General.--Title 4, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following new chapter:

``CHAPTER 6--LANGUAGE OF THE GOVERNMENT

``Sec.

``161..Declaration of national language.

``162..Preserving and enhancing the role of the national language.

``163..Use of language other than English.

``SEC. 161. DECLARATION OF NATIONAL LANGUAGE.

``English shall be the national language of the Government of the United States.

``SEC. 162. PRESERVING AND ENHANCING THE ROLE OF THE NATIONAL LANGUAGE.

``(a) In General.--The Government of the United States shall preserve and enhance the role of English as the national language of the United States of America.

``(b) Exception.--Unless specifically provided by statute, no person has a right, entitlement, or claim to have the Government of the United States or any of its officials or representatives act, communicate, perform or provide services, or provide materials in any language other than English. If an exception is made with respect to the use of a language other than English, the exception does not create a legal entitlement to additional services in that language or any language other

than English.

``(c) Forms.--If any form is issued by the Federal Government in a language other than English (or such form is completed in a language other than English), the English language version of the form is the sole authority for all legal purposes.

``SEC. 163. USE OF LANGUAGE OTHER THAN ENGLISH.

``Nothing in this chapter shall prohibit the use of a language other than English.''.

(c) Conforming Amendment.--The table of chapters for title 4, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following new item:

``6. Language of the Government

161''.

(As printed in the Congressional Record for the Senate on May 22, 2007.)


Some may raise objections to the idea that we should define English as the official language of the United States but the vast majority of Americans agree.

And many of those who do agree have learned English as Second Language!

Vast Majority of Americans Support Official English

National polling data indicates that the overwhelming majority of Americans, including Hispanics, support making English the official language.

* 85% of Americans, including 92% of Republicans, 79% of Democrats, and 86% of those not affiliated with either party, favor making English the official language of the United States of America. [1]

* 77% of Hispanics believe English should be the official language of government operations. [2]

* 82% of Americans support legislation that would require the federal government to conduct business solely in English.[3]

Government should do more to preserve role of English

* 92% of Americans believe that preserving English as our common language is vital to maintaining our unity; 69% agree that the United States is at risk of becoming 'disunited' by language. [4]

* 78% of Americans believe that the government should do more to help immigrants learn English; More Americans also believe that Congress and the President aren't doing enough to preserve America's unity in the English language (60%-26%) [4]

* 79% of Americans believe immigrants should be required to learn English before they are granted citizenship; only 14% disagree.[5]

* 68% of Americans oppose bilingual or multilingual election ballots. [6]

Most immigrants say learning English is essential.

* 91% of foreign-born Latino immigrants agree that learning English is essential to succeed in the U.S., according to a 2002 Kaiser Family Foundation poll.[7]

* A 2002 Carnegie/Public Agenda poll found that by more than a 2-1 margin immigrants themselves say the U.S. should expect new immigrants to learn English.[8]

Most immigrants reject "bilingual education."

* The 2002 Carnegie/Public Agenda poll found that 73% of immigrants believe schools should teach English as quickly as possible. 63% said that they believe that all teaching should be done in English, while only 32% supported allowing some teaching in their native languages.

[8]


So despite what some groups on the Left or the Mainstream Media might try to portray, this sentiment is not limited to Xenophobic, Racist Neo-Con Bigots.

It is instead the Will and the Word of the American Polity.

Don't let anyone try to tell you otherwise.

No Experts Need Apply
Topic: Global Warming
We have seen these sentiments before in History.







Now it seems that the IPCC has a new rule.
No Experts Need Apply



"


Yes it would appear that at times genuine experts insist on scientific verification, This can interfere with the true message,





So "No Experts Need Apply"

But Dan, some of you might think, aren't you exaggerating just a bit?

Let me pull up a little tale from what I call my Galileo Gallery and you be the judge.

From The hurricane expert who stood up to UN junk science

The Deniers -- Part III
Lawrence Solomon, Financial Post
Published: Friday, February 02, 2007
December 8, 2006

You're a respected scientist, one of the best in your field. So respected, in fact, that when the United Nations decided to study the relationship between hurricanes and global warming for the largest scientific endeavour in its history -- its International Panel on Climate Change -- it called upon you and your expertise.

You are Christopher Landsea of the Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratory. You were a contributing author for the UN's second International Panel on Climate Change in 1995, writing the sections on observed changes in tropical cyclones around the world. Then the IPCC called on you as a contributing author once more, for its "Third Assessment Report" in 2001. And you were invited to participate yet again, when the IPCC called on you to be an author in the "Fourth Assessment Report." This report would specifically focus on Atlantic hurricanes, your specialty, and be published by the IPCC in 2007


I realise that it is a given in some circles to place those who do not tow the Party Line on the Global Warning Issue in the category of Cranks, Misfits and Fringe Experimenters. I don't think that can apply here. Do you?

Then something went horribly wrong. Within days of this last invitation, in October, 2004, you discovered that the IPCC's Kevin Trenberth -- the very person who had invited you -- was participating in a press conference. The title of the press conference perplexed you: "Experts to warn global warming likely to continue spurring more outbreaks of intense hurricane activity." This was some kind of mistake, you were certain. You had not done any work that substantiated this claim. Nobody had.

As perplexing, none of the participants in that press conference were known for their hurricane expertise. In fact, to your knowledge, none had performed any research at all on hurricane variability, the subject of the press conference. Neither were they reporting on any new work in the field. All previous and current research in the area of hurricane variability, you knew, showed no reliable upward trend in the frequency or intensity of hurricanes. Not in the Atlantic basin. Not in any other basin.


Now there are two important points in this last paragraph that bear repeating and emphasis.


none of the participants in that press conference were known for their hurricane expertise. In fact, to your knowledge, none had performed any research at all on hurricane variability,

That does not sound like it fits well with

"Experts to warn global warming likely to continue spurring more outbreaks of intense hurricane activity

Or at least it does not to me. As it turns out it did not sound right to Christopher Landsea he contacted the IPCC leadership in protest.

What was the result of this action by one of the Top Hurricaine experts in the world?

Next year, the IPCC will come out with its "Fourth Assessment Report," and for the first time in a decade, you(Christopher Landsea) will not be writing its section on hurricanes. That task will be left to the successor that Dr. Trenberth chose.


I have not included the full article here. I urge the reader to go to the above link and read it's entirety.

It would appear in this case that "No Experts Need Apply" does fit the facts.

In the following days and weeks, I intend to present further examples.

But we don't need to be surprised that the UN IPCC is bringing to us the Great Global Warming Swindle,




after all it is the SAME Firm that brought to us the Great Food For Oil Fund Swindle.

The National D-Day Memorial Foundation

GENERATION TO GENERATION


Only through preserving our past can we guarantee a future where the lessons and legacy of D-Day will be remembered





D-Day: It is hard to conceive the epic scope of this decisive battle that foreshadowed the end of Hitler's dream of Nazi domination. Overlord was the largest air, land, and sea operation undertaken before or since June 6, 1944. The landing included over 5,000 ships, 11,000 airplanes, and over 150,000 service men.

After years of meticulous planning and seemingly endless training, for the Allied Forces, it all came down to this: The boat ramp goes down, then jump, swim, run, and crawl to the cliffs. Many of the first young men (most not yet 20 years old) entered the surf carrying eighty pounds of equipment. They faced over 200 yards of beach before reaching the first natural feature offering any protection. Blanketed by small-arms fire and bracketed by artillery, they found themselves in hell.

When it was over, the Allied Forces had suffered nearly 10,000 casualties; more than 4,000 were dead. Yet somehow, due to planning and preparation, and due to the valor, fidelity, and sacrifice of the Allied Forces, Fortress Europe had been breached.


Some people remember.


"A Canadian veteran reflects as he sits on the waters edge at Juno beach in Courseulles-sur-Mer, France on the Normandy coast Sunday June 6, 2004. Canadian veterans were honoured in a ceremony on the 60th Anniversary of D-Day."



Some have forgotten.




The Commonwealth war graves commission


said today that cemetery caretakers and visitors were left "shocked, upset and disgusted" after seeing a British war memorial in France covered with anti-war graffiti.
The memorial at Etaples, near Boulogne on the Channel coast, was daubed in red paint with slogans including "Rosbeefs [British] go home", "Saddam will win and he will make you bleed" and "Dig up your rubbish, it is contaminating our soil".

Some 11,000 British servicemen and women are buried at the cemetery, most of whom died defending France in the first world war.

The vandalism which also included a swastika, was discovered by workers at the site. They alerted the commission's French division, who set to work removing the paint from the memorial, which is visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year.

Two workers spent two days cleaning off the paint and grinding down the stone to remove the shadow of the words left behind.

Peter Francis, of the Commonwealth war graves commission, said vandalism at the thousands of sites looked after by the organisation was rare but this incident was "particularly foul".

"The reaction of the people who found it was shock, upset and disgust, which was our reaction as well. I think that was also the reaction of the local people and the French authorities and the gendarmerie is now watching the site," he said


Keep in mind Decent French Citizens were as outraged as we might be. The ones who might not have been outraged are beneath contempt.

Finally on in A tribute to all who have had to stagger out of the blood foaming surf to die on a foreign shore

Erick Svane has a Youtube Video from Saving Private Ryan called Primo Victoria that says it all.
