Iraq Is An American War

August 13, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Like many Americans I advocated ending our participation in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. I was wrong. Being war-weary is no excuse for not realizing that we are in a very long war with the enemies of civilization and reluctant to being fully engaged in it. On Monday, President Obama […]

Iraq In The Rear View Mirror

April 8, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ March marked the ten year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq in 2003 that deposed Saddam Hussein. In early April the battle for Baghdad was concluded, but America’s initial success was followed by years of further conflict and terrorism against our troops. The U.S. stayed on to occupy a nation whose […]

Leaving Iraq

December 19, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal […]

Changing Tune as Iraq War Ends for U.S.

December 18, 2011 by


By Jim Kouri, CPP. Critics have accused Obama of ending the war hastily to coincide with his re-election campaign. Many of them have warned that the pullout could embolden still-active insurgent fighters as well as Iraq’s neighbor Iran. On Wednesday, President Barack Obama addressed the impending end of the US mission in Iraq. “When the […]

WAPO Slanders U.S. Military in Iraq

December 12, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba I rarely read The New York Times or Washington Post because the reporting is so biased it sickens me. Pick any topic, from politics to science, these and other liberal mainstream newspapers are divorced from the most basic standards of honesty and accuracy. On Sundays, however, I visit their websites to get […]

Football (and War) is About Winning

February 7, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba The film, “Patton”, opens with George C. Scott giving an abbreviated version of General George Patton’s actual speech to the men of the Third Army on the eve of D-Day. Today’s wars apparently require a different kind of general; one who gets combat ribbons for testifying before Congress and giving press conferences. […]

Getting Re-Elected Is More Important Than Lives Of Our Troops

October 4, 2010 by


(I first took Kanjorski to task about this in 2008. It made me furious then, now that my daughter is a United States Marine I want this fraud out of office even more.) The man in the video below is Pennsylvania 11th District Congressman Paul Kanjorski. During his 25 years as a Congressman, Paul Kanjorski […]

The Two Year Itch

September 14, 2010 by


By Burt Prelutsky People used to talk about the seven year itch as the time in a marriage when one or both spouses was likely to start fantasizing about hooking up with another man or, as is more often the case, another woman. Well, I’ve reached that point. Not with my wife, you understand, but […]

The Ground Zero Mosque and The War of Ideas

August 28, 2010 by


The Palestinians used this “legitimization” tactic against the nation of Israel, as did Hezbollah in southern Lebanon; now the Cordoba House instigators are using it against America. It's a a pro-fundamental Islamist/pro-Sharia “attack,” in the ideological war (or war of ideas) between fundamentalist Islam and the West.

The Muddle East

August 25, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba For a long time the world’s attention to an increasing degree was on Vietnam. A war was fought there from 1954 until 1975, but the U.S. didn’t get seriously involved until August 7, 1964 with the Gulf of Tonkin incident and the arrival of the first combat troops in March 1965. It […]

Bush Was Right About Iraq!

August 21, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba As I watched the last of the U.S. active military force pull out of Iraq on August 19, I could not help but notice the famed “Indianhead” patch that unit was wearing on their uniforms because long, long ago, I wore that patch, the emblem of the Second Infantry Division. Most people […]

Political Correctness Played A Part In The Fort Hood Shootings

November 8, 2009 by


I have never been one to be “politically correct.” And I am not about to break the pattern with this article, so be forewarned. There are two factors that led to the shooting rampage at Fort Hood. One is political correctness, the other is a severely flawed U. S. military policy. As far back as […]

The Department Of Homeland Security Finally Catches Up With The Freedom Medium

October 13, 2009 by


Janet Napolitano and her crew at the Department Of Homeland Security finally found us. She must have stumbled across us, read some of our commentary, watched the Fox News videos, and started to become aware of what we have been talking about for months. And we don’t mind her taking credit for our hard work, we […]

Moonbats Unhinged: When Liberals Attack

October 11, 2009 by


The video is from a few years ago, but the question remains the same: What the hell is wrong with these people? Let’s ask a better question: Where are all these moonbats hiding now that Obama is President? These people are nothing more than morally bankrupt bast**ds! All of this “concern” for the troops when […]

Forgive Bush This Success

October 9, 2009 by


By Andrew Bolt Just updating you on those gleeful claims that Iraq was now headed for civil war, thanks to George Bush’s wicked toppling of Saddam Hussein. Iraqi civilian deaths last month: 96 – the lowest since the invasion. Coalition deaths over the past three months: 25 – the lowest since the invasion. I wonder […]

What Is More Important? Universal Health Care Or The War In Afghanistan?

September 24, 2009 by


The President appears to feel that we can either win the war in Afghanistan, or we can have universal health care.  But that we can’t do both. The top U.S commander in Afghanistan, General McChrystal, recently publicly stated that the U.S. needs to deploy more troops to Afghanistan. McChrystal has stated that some 40,000 additional soldiers […]

Lion of the Left

August 27, 2009 by


Alexander’s Essay “The foundation of national morality must be laid in private families. … Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics.” –John Adams Have you ever attended a funeral service out of respect for a friend or colleague, and left perplexed as to whom […]

Obama Designates Sept. 11th As National Socialism Day

August 26, 2009 by


We don’t need to rehash the events of September 11th, 2001. All true Americans have their memories of that fateful day, and remember it in their own ways. As the anniversary of 9-11 approached, some pinhead member of Congress made a motion that the day be made a national holiday. For once, common sense prevailed, […]

Karl Rove And The Republican Party Have Things All Wrong

August 5, 2009 by


A few months back, Salvaterra and I, along with 600 other people, attended a Republican fundraiser where Karl Rove was the featured guest speaker. Known by many as “The Architect”, Rove was Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief Of Staff to George W, Bush. During the course of his speech, one of the comments that Rove […]

DHS Is Not Invited To Terrorist Convention In Obama’s Hometown

July 21, 2009 by


Recently, nearly 500 members of Hizb-Ut-Tahrir held a convention in a Chicago-area Hilton Hotel. Although not officially recognized as a terrorist organization by the State Department, many terrorism experts, one example of which is shown in the video appearing a little later in this article, consider them to be more of a threat to America’s […]

Sit Back, Relax, And Enjoy The Destruction Of America

July 15, 2009 by


The other morning, I was surfing through the cable news channels, and I happened to stop at a show where Glenn Beck was making a guest appearance. He was talking about how most people, in regards to America’s current troubles, have developed a sense of apathy. He also mentioned that a phrase he hears uttered […]
