personal thought:

I was never a ‘fan’ of Robert McNamara, but I do admire his COURAGE when he finally admitted the Vietnam War was wrong.

So, fuck you Cheney!

Senator Paul (R-KY): ‘Bomb Everybody Tomorrow’ Is ‘Typical’ Republican Policy

Via: Think Progress

“We shouldn’t be everywhere all the time. We should have a more defensive foreign policy, a less aggressive foreign policy. I think that would go over much better in New England than the typical ‘we need to bomb everybody tomorrow’ policy you hear from some Republicans…there were many Republicans that said let’s stay [in Afghanistan] forever,

there are still some in the Senate who want to for 100 years in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Senator Ayn Rand Paul (R-KY)

***

personal thought:

If John McCain had been elected president:

1. We’d still have troops in Iraq, and no time table for leaving Afghanistan.

2. We would have bombed Iran; and have been involved, probably on the ground, in Syria.

3. North Korea, don’t even want to think about that.

4. Our deficit would be trillions of dollars higher, because we would of spent the money on weapon systems the ‘Joint Chiefs of Staff’ DO NOT WANT!

~

Note: the Romney ‘defense advisors’ are the SAME neocon ass-holes who got us INTO Iraq.

****

As Senator Paul suggests (R-KY), ‘Keep the U.S. STRONG and SAFE, Re-Elect Obama/Biden!’

Aide: Romney values ‘Anglo-Saxon’ (WHITE) ties

Via: UPI

Mitt  Romney would restore  an “Anglo-Saxon” touch to U.S.-British ties that  President Barack Obama doesn’t value, an aide said as Romney was to arrive in London.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee — who begins a weeklong trip  to Britain, Israel and Poland Wednesday — is better placed to understand the  “special relationship” (because he’s white) between the United States and Britain than Obama, whose  father was from Africa (because he’s black), the adviser told the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph in remarks the newspaper speculated might prompt accusations of racial  insensitivity (yeah, ya think?).

“We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and [Romney] feels that the special relationship is special,” the adviser said, adding, “The [Obama] White House  didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have (SEE PHOTO).”

personal thought:

I spent ’04 and ’05 in the U.K., and the ‘anti-Americanism’ was very evident because many Brits felt the U.S. had suckered ‘Blair – the poodle’ into the war.

I believe for ther most part, I was able to convince them, I did NOT vote for Bush!

Air Force Dumped Remains Of 274 Troops In Virginia Landfill

Via: Huffington Post

Last month, the Washington Post reported that the United States Air Force, while overseeing the Dover Air Force Base mortuary that receives the bodies of troops killed overseas, had cremated and disposed some remains and sent them to a landfill in King George County, Virginia. At the time, neither military officials nor Post reporters could verify the number of body parts that had been handled in such a way.

But after combing through military and mortuary records, the Post found that partial remains of at least 274 dead American troops were sent to the landfill, and far more unidentifiable body parts were disposed of in the same manner:

This week, after The Post pressed for information contained in the Dover mortuary’s electronic database, the Air Force produced a tally based on those records. It showed that 976 fragments from 274 military personnel were cremated, incinerated and taken to the landfill between 2004 and 2008.

An additional group of 1,762 unidentified remains were collected from the battlefield and disposed of in the same manner, the Air Force said. Those fragments could not undergo DNA testing because they had been badly burned or damaged in explosions.

The TOTAL NUMBER of incinerated fragments dumped in the landfill exceeded 2,700.

~~~

The practice began at a time when there was little public oversight over the Dover mortuary. President George H.W. Bush banned news coverage of the return of deceased troops during the Gulf War in 1991, and the ban remained until 2009, when President Obama ended it.

The first record of such a disposal, according to the Post, is from April 2004, and the Air Force decided to end the practice in 2008. It now buries cremated remains at sea.

President George W. Bush – Memorial Day at Arlington National Cemetary – May 30, 2005

“Every year on this day, we pause to remember Americans who have fallen by placing a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown” said the President. “The names of the men buried here are known only to God, but there courage and sacrafice will never be forgotten by our Nation.”

Mourners recall SEAL’s big dreams, big heart

Via: Des Moines Register

Rockford, Ia. – Jon Thomas Tumilson wrote a class paper when he was 15 about how he wanted to spend the next 20 years as a Navy SEAL, an elite member of the U.S. armed forces.

On Friday, an estimated 1,500 mourners paid their last respects to Petty Officer Tumilson, a Navy SEAL whose helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan on Aug. 6, about 20 years after Tumilson wrote that paper. He was 35 when he died in one of the deadliest attacks on U.S. forces in the decade-old U.S. deployment to Afghanistan.

Family members  followed Tumilson’s ribbon-winning Labrador retriever, Hawkeye, into the service. Hawkeye later accompanied his new owner, Nichols, Tumilson’s close friend, to the stage, where the Lab dutifully dropped to the floor to listen.
