Will The REAL Anti-War Vets Stand Up

Posted by Casey on June 11, 2009

Iraq Veterans Against the War marching in Bost...

The false veteran anti-war movement has been epidemic for some time now going back all the way to 9/11. It seems like every few months we find out that one of the “veterans” leading the charge against the war never actually served. Most of the time we find that they are prominent members of well known anti-war groups. Talk about the blind leading the blind.

The latest installment actually slipped by me for a few weeks. Sorry, I’ve been really busy.

You remember Jessie MacBeth, don’t you? He was the fake “Army Ranger” thug who lied about serving in Iraq and was promoted by the Iraq Veterans Against the War until milbloggers exposed him as a total fraud.

Well, meet a guy who makes Jessie MacBeth look like a choir boy.

And add this story to the ever-growing file of bogus Winter Soldier Syndrome tales from MacBeth and Micah Wright to Josh Lansdale and Amorita Randall.

“Rick Duncan” of Colorado Springs was a prominent anti-war activist who claimed to have served in Iraq on three tours of duty AND survived the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon. He has now been unmasked as a lying mental patient (via Colorado Springs Gazette with a big hat tip to This Ain’t Hell):

This Ain’t Hell is covering this flawlessly.

Here’s an old post of mine migrated over here from the old site on this very subject.

Don’t forget about the time Harry Reid demanded that Rush Limbaugh apologize to these frauds.

So why are these fakes so successful? Well, the liberal population didn’t ever serve their country for the most part. Therefore they simply can’t identify a real veteran as is perfectly illustrated here.

Bush Shoe Tosser Crying About Being Tortured

Posted by Casey on December 16, 2008

Good thing he’s in Iraq, I guess. If he were here he’d have probably been shot.

While we’ve had fun looking at the social-media mashups spun off of the Bush/shoe-throwing incident, here’s a sobering issue: The BBC reports that the man, Muntadar al-Zaidi (pictured in a BBC photo), has been beaten while in Iraqi custody. His brother told the British news agency that al-Zaidi allegedly “suffered a broken arm, broken ribs and internal bleeding.” And Arab media is airing similar reports: Raed in the Middle reports that the station where al-Zaidi worked says his hand was broken, and the blog “Roads to Iraq” relays a report from al-Sharqiya TV that the man has “broken ribs and signs of tortures on his thighs.”

I still find it amusing that this story is bigger than Gov. Palin’s church being burned down by an arsonist.

The LA Times seems to have compared the shoe tosser to Joe the plumber in a not so shocking anymore display idiocy.

Meanwhile, back in Iraq …

For those of you who think this guy represents the feelings towards Bush in Iraq … we are finding out that he is a terrorist sympathizer who is pissed his side got their asses kicked.

Ahmed recalled that al-Zeidi spoke glowingly of anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose followers organized protests Monday to demand his release.

He’s also a huge fan of communist murderer Che Guevara, and has a major ego problem. Apparently he’s more of an attention whore than journalist … according to other Iraqi journalists.

Also not making news here in the states from Iraq is the kick ass celebration the troops had for the president while he was visiting them there. Please notice the difference in troop behavior towards Bush as opposed to Obama or Kerry.

Let It Be Known: Bush, Not Obama, Secured Iraq Withdrawal

Posted by Casey on November 21, 2008

I just want this to be crystal clear, because number 2’s will try to give credit to Obama for this. The deal has been in the works for nearly a year now, since Iraq asked the US to stay indefinitely in their country.

The security agreement, reached after months of negotiations between Iraqi and U.S. representatives, sets June 30, 2009, as the deadline for U.S. combat troops to withdraw from all Iraqi cities and towns. The date for all U.S. troops to leave Iraq would be December 31, 2011.
It would replace a U.N. resolution expiring at year’s end that sets out the role of U.S. and allied troops in Iraq.

The Iraqi government approved the pact Sunday, and now the measure is under debate in parliament, where there has been overheated discussion between proponents and opponents. A vote is expected next week.

CIA Confirms Al Qaeda In Iraq In 2002

Posted by Casey on November 13, 2008

This is not news, or a surprise, as it has been confirmed dozens of times. I even wrote about some of the terrorist ties Saddam had here. Saddam did have a tentative relationship with al Qaeda, but it was not extensive. Just so we are clear … no one has ever denied that Saddam had extensive ties to terrorism. Al Qaeda being in Iraq wasn’t the reason for invasion anyway. It was Saddam’s CONFIRMED WMD programs coupled with his ties to terrorist organizations that was given as reasons for invasion by Republicans and Democrats alike.

Charles “Sam” Faddis, who led a CIA team into northern Iraq following the 9/11 attacks, says the Pentagon’s “endless planning and delays” foiled a chance to wipe out a band of al Qaeda leaders who were fleeing American bombs in Afghanistan.
Faddis says the delays, beginning in 2002, also facilitated the escape of some “key” al Qaeda figures, including terrorist scientists who were working on chemical and biological weapons.

Al Qaeda showed up after our invasion of Afghanistan according to this operative.

Al Qaeda operatives “showed up in Iraq after our invasion of Afghanistan.”
Before the U.S. invasion, “you had al Qaeda operatives in the north spying (on Iraq) — the same as us,” he said.

Consider yourself smarter for having read this post.

Violence In Iraq Still Down During Ramadan

Posted by Casey on September 22, 2008

Good thing McCain was right about the surge.

Army Lt. Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, Multinational Corps Iraq commander, spoke to Pentagon reporters via teleconference from his headquarters in Baghdad.

Austin charted the continued progress in Iraq. “We’ve experienced continued low levels of violence, with 15 of the last 16 weeks remaining below the 200-attacks-per-week mark,” he said. “In Baghdad, … we’ve averaged less than four attacks per day for the last 13 weeks.”

He said this level of violence would have been unthinkable a year ago. Anbar province – once the home of al-Qaida in Iraq – transferred to Iraqi provincial control, and the trends of violence continue down, the general told reporters.

It’s notable that the decrease has continued during Ramadan, Austin said. “We did see a small spike in attacks over the weekend,” he acknowledged, “but I can tell you that even with the spike, we are well below what we saw last year and the year before that.”
