ISIS is an opportunity not a disasterby LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD

September 25, 2014

On December 16, 1944, three German armies, the Sixth SS Panzer, Fifth Panzer and the Seventh Army, some 24 divisions in all, launched an offensive against the six defending U.S. divisions strung out along 100 miles of the Ardennes Forest, later to be known as the Battle of the Bulge.

On Dec. 19, 1944, General Dwight Eisenhower and his senior staff met with Generals Omar Bradley and George Patton.

The Germans had achieved complete surprise, had badly mauled American units and threatened to advance through the Ardennes forest, cross the Meuse River and capture American supply depots with the eventual aim of splitting the Allied forces and driving on toward the port of Antwerp.Eisenhower had no reserves to deploy and American air superiority, which could have stabilized the situation, could not be employed due to bad weather.

For the first time since D-Day on June 6th, the Allies were facing a foe that was more numerous, more mobile and better equipped than they were. A successful German counter offensive would be catastrophic, and in the first few days of the battle it looked like a real possibility.

Nevertheless, Eisenhower, according to his book Crusade in Europe, began the conference by saying, “The present situation is to be regarded as one of opportunity for us and not of disaster.”Eisenhower exerted a firm grip on the battle. Patton was ordered to swing his U.S. 3rd Army 90 degrees and drive north to strike at the southern flank of the ‘bulge’ driven into the Allied line, a task he completed with unprecedented speed.

To prevent the swelling German salient to sever communications between Bradley’s U.S. 12th Army Group on the northern and southern sides of the ‘bulge’, Eisenhower gave Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, commander of the British 21st Army Group, operational control in the north.

The objective was to halt and cut off the offensive, which, after about one

By Jeff Crouere Friday, September 12, 2014America on the edgeToday our country is in the midst of a battle for survival. We face a well armed and well funded terror army, Islamic State, which has grown to 31,500 fighters, including 2,000 from Western nations.

In his recent national address, President Obama outlined a more aggressive approach to attack the terrorists in Iraq and Syria. Unfortunately, battling the terrorists in the Middle East is not enough.

Desperate to empty the Guantanamo Bay prison by the end of his term, Obama quietly is giving “get out of jail free” cards for the flimsiest of excuses. One al Qaeda suspect captured in Afghanistan is considered reformed because he took up yoga and read a biography of the Dalai Lama.

Obama is, quite literally, unbelievableby

For Barack Obama speeches are not just motivational instruments or representations of a desired state of affairs, but feats of political transubstantiation, where, if he utters them, words become reality.It is a behavior not dissimilar to Adolf Hitler maneuvering imaginary German divisions from his Berlin bunker while Russian troops rampage throughout the city above him.


Delusional is the only term that I can muster to describe the chasm that exists between the words Obama uses and the differing reality into which they are dispensed.In politics and foreign policy, words have power if they are truthful and followed by corresponding actions.

When they lack authenticity, however, words degenerate into the coarse tools of a con artist, receptive only to the cynical or the equally delusional.It is as if Obama is following the George Burns axiom, the key to success is sincerity, if you can fake that, then you’ve got it made.

Islamism with a Human Face?

Until now, Islamist rule has implied violence and dictatorship; can it evolve into something decent?

Put differently: if the brutality of Ruhollah Khomeini and Osama bin Laden marked them as yesterday’s men, and the autocracy of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Mohamed Morsi make them today’s men; can tomorrow’s Islamists – Muslims seeking a consistent and global application of Islamic law under the rule of a caliph – become democratic and humane?
