Gunny G’s Marines History and Traditions: The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012…Re General Colin Powell, etc.
If we’re ever going to get our freedom back, we’ve got to understand how we got into this mess. People need to understand that the armed forces exist to support and defend government, not to be the government. Faced with intractable national problems on one hand, and an energetic and capable military on the other, it can be all too seductive to start viewing the military as a cost-effective solution.
We made a terrible mistake when we allowed the armed forces to be diverted from their original purpose.
I found a box of my notes and clippings from our War College days–told my keepers I needed them to write the confession they want. It’s amazing; looking through these old papers makes me realize that even back in 1992 we should have seen this coming.
The seeds of this outrage were all there; we just didn’t realize how they would grow. But isn’t that always the way with things like this? Somebody once said that “the true watersheds in human affairs are seldom spotted amid the tumult of headlines broadcast on the hour.”2 And we had a lot of headlines back in the ’90s to distract us:
The economy was in the dumps, crime was rising, schools were deteriorating, drug use was rampant, the environment was in trouble, and political scandals were occurring almost daily. Still, there was some good news: the end of the Cold War as well as America’s recent victory over Iraq…………..
Crazed Sniperism….. ~ “They’ll fry you if you’re wrong,” the spotter says as Kyle’s haunted eyes focus on his target, and his finger prepares to pull the trigger….”…………… – LewRockwell.com
……….The teaser clip shows Kyle and his spotter doing overwatch as a Marine patrol occupies a devastated Iraqi neighborhood, kicking in doors in pursuit of local residents who might pose problems for the foreign military force that had invaded their country in an act of criminal aggression.
Kyle notices a woman and a young child emerging from a building. The woman hands the child an object that appears to be a grenade. As Kyle draws bead on the youngster, the viewer is shown a brief montage of scenes of the sniper at home with his lovely wife and beautiful children, briefly interrupted by a shot of Kyle surrounded by flag-draped coffins.

Those who aren’t killed in battle will eventually return to New York, to Los Angeles and to Minneapolis—Saint Paul.And they will stop being Iraq’s problem and become our problem.ISIS is more than just another terrorist group.
Gunny G ~ What if everything we’ve done in Iraq has been a mistake?…Judge Andrew Napolitano……”What if Iraq is not a country of people with common cultures and interests and generally accepted borders, but rather an amalgam of warring groups cobbled together by British and American diplomats? What if only a strongman like Hussein — however evil and ill suited for government by Western standards — can keep peace and stability in an artificial country like Iraq?…”

What Will Victory Look Like?Townhall.com ^ | September 19, 2014 | Pat BuchananPosted on 9/19/2014, 12:30:18 PM by Kaslin”Congress must now vote to support the first steps of what will be a long march toward victory,” said Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
Following this clarion call, 71 House Republicans bolted to join 85 Democrats in voting no to U.S. funds to train and arm Syrian rebels.Why the hesitation? Because our strategy in Syria is to rely on a Free Syrian Army that has been the least effective force in that civil war, and untrustworthy to boot. Units of the FSA have handed their U.S. weapons over to ISIS.Yet these “feckless” rebels, says Sen. Bob Corker, constitute “our entire ground game.”John McCain raises a second issue.
The FSA came into being to overthrow Bashar Assad. Now they are to be retrained to fight ISIS. How effective will the FSA be when told to change sides and become de facto allies of the dictator against whom they took up arms?Projections are that it will take a year before
