More talk of cease-fires…geesh…

Sunday, July 30th, 2006

The civilized world has gone to long without a real war.  We watched as Bosnia, Ruanda, and now Sudan devolve into genocidal rampages and did absolutely nothing.  I guess it’s okay for a nation state to allow barbarians to slaughter citizens.  There were UN resolutions and even peace keepers sent to Bosnia…they were kept busy finding mass graves.  We have forgotten what it means to stand up to evil and offer it the dish it understands…total and complete annihilation.  Today, in our so very proper Political Correctness, we injure evil and then call a cease fire thus allowing evil to heal itself and continue on it’s merry way.

This morning the IDF struck a building in Qana, Lebanon.  60 dead with about 45 of those being kids.  First, who’s fault is it that those kids died?  Clearly not the children’s fault.  Their parents?  Israel has been bending over backwards to tell the citizenry to get out of Hell’s Way because hell is coming.  There are reports the barbarians are keeping people from leaving…no surprise there.  Allah Pundit is wondering about the timing of the ultimate collapse of the building in question. No surprise there either if it turns out that the barbarians destroyed the building…kids and all.  That is the personification of Evil…someone who would kill a child(let alone 45) for no real purpose.

The barbarians deserve to be destroyed totally.  If the “civilians” are supporting the barbarians then there is no difference between them and the barbarians…kill them.  If the “civilians” were prevented from leaving so as to be used as shields then we mourn their loss but we must kill the barbarians.  No amount of talking is going to save them anyway.  Once their usefulness is through they will be killed or worse.

Mr. President, stop the “cease-fire” garbage and offer all the support the IDF needs.  Cheer them on because they are doing what you obviously aren’t willing to do.  Kill the enemy.  Grow a pair and realize that this is a war for our very survival.  You can’t talk with barbarians.  You can’t deal with them.  Forcing a cease-fire on Israel will only give the barbarians time to heal up.  Kill the enemy.  Subjugate the enemy.  Terrorize the enemy.

Pat Dollard gets it

Friday, July 21st, 2006

Roaming around the net tonight, hitting the usual suspects and what do I find on Blackfive? A post from Froggy telling the world about Pat Dollard’s adventures in Iraq. Mr. Dollard is a Hollywood Talent Agent, or something along those lines, who decided to go see what the war was about…on his own dime. I’ve always thought THESE are the people you need to read, watch, or listen to to find out what’s really going on over there. Michael Yon, Bill Roggio (other Roggio sources), Michael Fumento, and now Pat Dollard. If anyone reading this knows of others PLEASE leave me a comment with the links. These guys are reporting the real news while the legacy media keeps trying to just lose the war.
Mr. Dollard served with a bunch of Marines in three of the hottest areas in Iraq; Fallujah, The Triangle of Death, and Ramadi. Through it all he carried a camera and took some amazing videos. Go. Watch. LEARN SOMETHING ABOUT WHAT PAT HAS DUBBED THE GREATEST PEOPLE OF THEIR GENERATION.

Sysinternals to be assimilated by Micro$oft

Thursday, July 20th, 2006

UPDATE:  SysInternals file has been restored.

MD5: EACDCB1A798A7DD760E22F9523B1B908
SHA1: 6A910CE3D08C0E81C3FD4C9CB4ADFF57594A6CB2

A dark day to be sure. But you just never know. Mark Russinovich says he will continue his blog which, we hope, will continue to be as independent as it has been in the past.

In the event that M$ decides to charge for their new aquisition…not that they have ever done that before(ahem)…I took the liberty of grabbing all of their tools and dumping them into a single zip file here. These are current as of today and I would be a bit surprised if they are updated again before the completion of the takeover.

Reality III

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

I’ve written before on what Reality is. Basically, it’s the hard facts that we don’t really want to hear or read or experience. The fact we don’t want to face them doesn’t change the fact that it is reality. The best course of action is to face reality with resolve. It appears that the world at large isn’t willing to face the reality that is “the middle east crisis” or terrorism overall. Sadly, it appears now that the Bush Administration doesn’t want to face it either.

The Guardian of London is reporting that the Bush Administration is giving Israel one more week to destroy Hezbollah before weighing in on the “cease fire” side of the debate. One more week isn’t enough time for Israel to complete this particular task let alone hit at the REAL power behind Hezbollah which is Syria(Iran is pretty much beyond Israel’s reach). “One more week” gives Hezbollah a deadline. “One more week” is setting a date for withdrawal. “One more week” is what the “Cut and Run” crowd in the US Congress has been wanting in Iraq. “One more week” isn’t reality.

Reality is welcoming Israel into the Global War on Terror and reminding her neighbors that if they work with her this will all be over sooner. Israel has shown remarkable restraint over the past decade while Palestinians blowup discos, weddings, markets, buses, and restaurants all over the country. They have offered the Palestinians everything they have asked for in exchange for living peacefully with each other. At every turn they have returned to the slaughtering of Israel’s citizens. Hezbollah is no different. Both of them claim their ultimate goal to be the elimination of the “Zionist State”. The only concession they will take is if the entire country follows the lead of those in the fortress Masada. That is reality. Allow Hezbollah to return to their Masters(Syria and Iran) to regroup and refit and we will walk down this same path sooner rather than later. The objective SHOULD be to encourage Israel to continue on with their operations. Encourage the civilized people of Lebanon and Syria to join in the effort to rid their country of barbarians. Press on to Damascus and get this mess over with.

It’s going to happen. It HAS to happen if we are serious about this War on Terror.

Olmert Gets It

Monday, July 17th, 2006

2 hours ago PM Olmert said the following:

“Citizens of Israel, there are moments in the life of a nation, when it is compelled to look directly into the face of reality and say: no more,” he said.

“And I say to everyone: no more. Israel will not be held hostage – not by terror gangs or by a terrorist authority or by any sovereign state,”

“There is nothing we want more than peace on all of our borders,” Olmert told the Knesset. But he said, “Israel will not agree to live with rockets fired on its citizens, he added. “Only a nation that can protect its freedom deserves it,” he stated.

Amen Mr. Olmert. Amen. God Speed in your efforts and God Bless the IDF!

Doesn’t sound like a man who is going to cave to the “balanced response” crowd does it? Over at HotAir a commenter, Creed, offered up this phrase from Menachem Begin from the last Lebanon adventure in 1982:

The hour of decision has arrived. You know what I have done, and what all of us have done. To prevent war and bereavement. But our fate is that in the Land of Israel there is no escape from fighting in the spirit of self-sacrifice. Believe me, the alternative to fighting is Treblinka, and we have resolved that there would be no Treblinkas. This is the moment in which courageous choice has to be made. The criminal terrorists and the world must know that the Jewish people have a right to self-defense, just like any other people.

Begin Got It. Olmert Gets It. It’s not common for a Non-Kentuckian to get the Half Horse-Half Gator award but Mr. Olmert, This one’s for you.

Still more proof that the NYCrimes is the enemy

Monday, July 17th, 2006

Over the weekend Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs talked about the NYCrimes new photo slideshow by Joao Silva. The photos show barbarians working their weapons during the periods from July 30 to November 3, 2003, from January 16 till April 1, 2004, from June16 until August 30, 2004, and again from January 18, 2005 until March 31, 2005. So Mr. Silva knew the locations of the barbarians throughout this period and ALLOWED THESE SUB-HUMANS ATTACK AND QUITE PROBABLY KILL OUR MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN! Oh, it’s for his art! Oh, it’s for his expression! Oh, it’s for his pulitzer! Oh, BULL&$|&! It certainly wasn’t for his country. It certainly wasn’t for his patriotism. It certainly wasn’t for Iraq.

Oh, and the NY Crimes paid this barbarian sympathizer to take pictures of these soulless bastards while they shot at our Soldiers and Marines. Mr. Silva did nothing to stop this attack on Americans and I would almost bet my salary that had they stopped he would have encouraged them to carry on because he’s so “incredibly courageous”. Perhaps the barbarians needed alittle “buck up Buckaroo!” chat and our “hero” was just the man for it…as long as he had time to frame his shot first.

Ladies and gentlemen, if this isn’t anti-american behavior I don’t know what is. The NY Crimes is the enemy of my country. Thankfully, for them, their “free press” is protected by the ones in the cross hairs of this sniper.

What will it take?

Sunday, July 16th, 2006

As with most everyone I think, I’ve kept my eye on the goings on in Israel and Lebanon.  Regardless of what legacy media outlet I take a look at they consistently call this a “crisis” or “on the brink” or “tensions escalate” or similiar hedge.  What is it going to take for these people to come out and call this a WAR?  Israel has declared war on Lebanon.  Hezbollah has said, “They want war? We’ll give them war”.

Come on people…just call it war and stop hedging this thing.

Welcome to the 21st Century!

Friday, July 14th, 2006

Today I received a call around 8:20am explaining that was about have a visitor at my home.  I dropped everything and rushed home.  Who was making this demand on my time?  What could possibly drag me away from my workplace(about anything really but that’s another matter)?  Why it was the cable guy of course.  Getting cable TV isn’t something that I’m altogether thrilled about.  I’m sure I’ll still miss the outrageous options from the satelite but the satelite didn’t offer me one thing that I DESPERATELY needed….BROADBAND INTERNET ACCESS!

Yep, that’s right, uh huh…I am now the proud owner of a 512kbps downstream/128kbps upstream cable connection!  W00T!  So…as I sit here waiting for the 30mb download to finish I thought I might fire off this missive explaining that this 30mb download will take something like 5 minutes to complete.;)

I’ve never been much of an online gamer because, well, it sorta sux to play on dialup.  But now…NOW…I might just have to check something out.

W00t!  Now I can play with Rainbow tables!!!  W00T!  Now I can check out the offerings of Malware that fly around everywhere!  W00T!  Now I can setup my honeypot!  Scan the world(with proper authorization of course…ahem)!

Someone has untied the leash

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

Or so it would seem anyway.

The other day an Israeli soldier was kidnapped in Gaza.  Hamas claimed credit and the IDF went to work.  Last night 2 more IDf soldiers were kidnapped in Northern Israel and Israel has called it an act of war and invaded Lebanon.  Just a couple hours ago IDF jets hit the interior ministry building of the Hamas barbarian government in Gaza City.  It is ON in the eastern Mediterranean and it’s about darn time.

Wouldn’t surprise me if the President told the Israeli PM to have at it with Hamas when they met last month.

Give’m Hell IDF!
