The Brass is Tarnished

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, July 14, 2014 in AssHatery, Military, Politics

As y’all know by now, I am a proud Army wife. But that doesn’t mean we are blind to the politics rife in the military.

Bergdahl Is Set to Resume Life on Active Duty

That’s the headline on a NYT article today.

Sergeant Bergdahl’s transfer from the therapy phase to a regular soldier’s job is part of his reintegration into Army life, officials said. He will live in barracks and have two other soldiers help him readjust.

I do feel for the soldiers on this duty. My understanding is, Bergdahl is not well-received.

The investigation into his “disappearance” is still ongoing. But I am irked that the Joint Chiefs support his repatriation, while the investigation is still ongoing. I am not well-versed on military rules and protocol, but this smacks of shining a turd.

Open Thread Friday!!

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, June 13, 2014 in AssHatery, Government, Idiotarians, Islamofascist nutjobs, religion of piece, terrorism

By now y’all know so-called “Sgt” Bergdahl is now stateside. You also know Iraq is about to be taken over by ISIS, radicals that make Al Qaeda look like diplomats. You are also aware of the impoverished former Secretary of State’s new work of fiction. This week has been nothing but bad news for this administration. So the only recourse left for our Prez is to go visit a Sioux reservation in the Dakotas.

Six years after he promised to help with conditions in Indian Country.

Seriously, what is this I don’t even….

Go nuts trying to figure this out, because all I can see is our leader letting helping the world burn.

All in the Timing

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, June 2, 2014 in Government, Islamofascist nutjobs, Politics, Total Bullshit

This weekend brought news of a prisoner exchange brokered by the Obama administration. “Sgt.” Bowe Bergdahl was released as an Afghan POW in exchange for five top Taliban operatives who were being held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The stories are coming out, and they ain’t pretty. Whereas the administration is touting this as a necessary operation due to Bergdahl’s health, and/or a triumph in diplomacy to bring home a hero, soldiers who actually served with him and were in country at the time have a different version of Bergdahl. Many military bloggers as well as others have written extensively on the matter, and much better than I can. But I do have one question that I haven’t seen answered anywhere.

If he was against the war, as his parents allege, if he was “disillusioned” with the war, why did he enlist in the first place?

I don’t wish to sound like I have a tin foil hat on, but his father’s comments and Bergdahl’s actions do not seem to add up to that of a soldier taken by insurgents. No soldier I know would take off his gear and pile it neatly even if they needed to relieve themselves, especially in a hot zone such as Sharana. I recall Hubby being in the Green Zone, an area that was supposedly “safe”, and no one was allowed to go outside without the full gear, for any reason. Add to this the fact that once again Teh Prez promised to close Gitmo by the end of 2014 and released these Taliban terrorists without notifying Congress, and you get your spidey senses tingling.

Oh, and what happened to the VA scandals? How odd that they are missing from the front pages of most major news outlets, eh?

This whole situation stinks like an asphalt-baked skunk in summer.

Spike of the Year

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, May 2, 2014 in Government, History, Islamofascist nutjobs, Left Wing Media, Politics, terrorism

There is no end to the news stories surrounding The Most Transparent Administration, EVAH™ lately. It used to be that the White House minions would wait until 4 PM EST to dump any news. But lately it’s almost as if they are so complacent that they forget to manage the news cycle. I mean, they are just no longer even trying. A massive email dump is given to Judicial Watch as per their FOIA request, and you allow a former Nat’l Security Council spokesman with the attitude of a pimply 16 year old that has been turned down for Prom by his crush to go explain what the administration WASN’T DOING on the night of September 11, 2012?

Who is writing this drama? Nicholas Sparks?

First we learn that The Prez wasn’t in the Situation Room at all during the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans, and Planet Hillary was….. not there either. Then Pimples Vietor drops another nugget: he was in charge of talking points for Ambassador Rice, and the talking points were changed from “attacks” to “demonstrations”. Hey, in my world without Common Core math, 2+2=4. But the biggest take-away anyone with two braincells and an axon can get is this: no matter what, the level on incompetence from ALL senior staff, The Prez included, was instrumental in the Benghazi terrorist attacks. People are in dire need of rescue and you can’t be bothered to even be briefed in the Situation Room? Shit, even MSNBC is turning on the administration!

And I can see 2016 from here.

At Least It Starts With the Letter “U”

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, March 24, 2014 in Idiotarians, Politics, War

As the world watches Ukraine and Putin, and begins to wonder what happened to Georgia (the republic, not the state), our esteamed* Prez and leader of the somewhat free world decided it was time to get serious and get involved.

In Uganda.

Again.

Early Monday, the White House confirmed a Washington Post report that the U.S. was sending “associated support personnel,” and a “limited number” of CV-22 Osprey aircraft to assist local forces in their long-running battle against Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army, or LRA. Obama sent about 100 U.S. troops to help the African forces in 2011.

The administration did not specify how many troops and aircraft would be sent to Africa, but the Post reported that the president had ordered four Osprey aircraft and 150 Air Force special operations members and airmen to Uganda.

I’m all for helping the oppressed, don’t get me wrong. But having studied Sub-Saharan African cultures, and the geography, I’m pretty freakin’ sure they will never find much less catch that Kony character anytime soon. Besides that, I have to ask, how does his capture secure the freedom of not just the people of Uganda and the Central African Republic (so-called), but also of the US? Just how is Kony a threat to Western interests? He has no nuclear capabilities, no organized army divisions, nothing but a mythical shroud to provide him cover. This is akin to the Ugandan Army sending troops to Los Angeles to capture the Hillside Stranglers.

Meanwhile, Vlad “Impale Them All” Putin is poised to go to war over Ukraine as a probable second step (don’t forget Georgia, the republic, not the state) in his quest to re-establish Russia as a superpower and making Poland, Hungary, and all the other former bloc nations very, very nervous, since the US no longer has their backs. But the Prez will write a sternly-worded letter or reprimand while trying to calm the European countries on his tour.

He will no doubt try to douse that conflagration with just enough gasoline.

* Yes, I spelled it that way on purpose ;)

No Ordinary Day

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 in History, In Memoriam, religion of piece

No matter how hard some people try to make this a day of service, or a sale at a store, this is no ordinary day.

On September 11th, we always remember.

911

And eleven years after that, another attack which left four Americans murdered in Benghazi, Libya.

Forgetting lets evil win. Never, ever forget, and make sure to never let those who would choose to dismiss it forget, either.

Money to Burn

Unbelievable.

I never link to the NYT, so if you want to read the story, go to Drudge.

Kerry Announces $250 Million in U.S. Aid for Egypt

Seriously. what the SHIT?? Prez Obama promised that shithole ONE BILLION DOLLARS. This is the first disbursement. Meanwhile, in the Land of Reality I like to call the United States of America, he is implementing Sequestration.

The aid announced Sunday consists of two parts. One is a $190 million infusion for Egypt’s budget intended to address what Mr. Kerry said was the country’s “extreme needs.” That assistance has already been approved by Congress.

Mr. Kerry also pledged $60 million for the creation of a fund to support small businesses, which will provide “direct support to key engines of democratic change in Egypt, including Egypt’s entrepreneurs and its young people.”

“Extreme needs”?? What exactly is that? And supporting small businesses??

How about supporting OUR small businesses first? How about meeting the extreme needs of Americans still without a place of their own after Hurricane Sandy? How about meeting the extreme needs of people who have to work two jobs because their hours were cut due to the implementation of Obamacare? Or how about meeting the needs of those being furloughed during Sequestration???

We are essentially funding them to hate us. Well, fuck that on a stick with sauce. They can hate us for free.

Texas Independence Day

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Saturday, March 2, 2013 in Awesomeness, History

texas independence day

While battle raged at the Alamo 177 years ago, a free Republic was born when delegates from across Texas met to declare their independence from a Mexican government that had “ceased to protect the lives, liberty, and property of the people, from whom its legitimate powers are derived.”

The men who declared Texas Independence knew with every fiber of their being what the price of liberty was, and that same appreciation of liberty still guides the Lone Star State today. We owe it to those who sacrificed it all to fight back whenever freedom is threatened.

I hope you have a happy Texas Independence Day, remember the brave Texians who laid it all on the line, and always stand for liberty.  — Senator Ted Cruz

Texas will always stand for Freedom and will always push back against tyranny. Y’all would do well to remember that.
