Soliders from the 1/180th Field Artillery positioned open cans of Spam™ and Bit O'Honeys in the vicinity of a local sewage pipeline that had burst. After waiting for darkness, the soldiers heard a muffled snuffling, as if the target were gorging on the pre-positioned treats.
Pulling the tripwire, a buried snare launched a spring loaded net at the prey.
A loud wailing was heard from the area of the trap, followed by the sound of more munching noises.
Assaulting the position, the soldiers found the netting had been chewed through. They followed a trail of Bit O'Honey wrappers to a nearby waste water treatment plant and found a heaving behemoth. This was the enemy. The terrorist had gorged on the food and now, with a full belly, lay sleeping near a urinal outflow pipe.
Tranquilizer guns were deployed and the 1/180th got their target. Below is a picture of the terrorist after it woke up....

Of course they have to put their own spin on the show.
Your kiddies' daily lessons in civility and the Zionist conspiracy will debut with the introduction of the first NEW TELETUBBIE:
UPDATE: Al-Jismzeera has learned that their original name for the first new Teletubbie (Lie-Lie) actually means "one who does not tell the truth". They are now running a contest to name the corpulent representative to Arab children.
Please leave your suggested name in the comments section.
First prize is a one week trip to a resort in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Second Place gets a two-week trip.
I'd like to see more
The Dems gave up on fighting against El Presidente on funding the troops...
No strings...no timelines...no pomposity flowing from the gorged maw of Fat Teddy Kennedy, just funding for the troops.
IT'S ABOUT FREAKIN' TIME or, in the language we will all soon be required to speak:

Sorry, had to get a drink of water after I read that Jimmy (snicker) Carter (giggle) called President Bush THE WORST PRESIDENT (chortle) IN HISTORY!!!
Jimmy Carter (I refuse to call him "President" Carter since he failed to display any real leadership), decided that he doesn't like George Bush very much. Neither does 67% of the rest of the country based on polls. I guess Democrats like Carter really do form opinions based on polls. That is consistent with the fact that they usually can't think for themselves.
Carter also demonstrated the DumbasCraps' lack of mental acuity for four years when he:
1) Told us to surrender by turning down the thermostat and putting on more sweaters since there was nothing we could do about energy prices (his energy plan is shown on the left).
2) Launched a half-assed rescue attempt to free our hostages from Iran
3) Failing at that, emboldened terrorists to view the U.S. as a paper tiger and become more aggressive in their actions
4) Published The Wit and Wisdom of Jimmy Carter (1977). Though listed at 141 pages, 140 of them were blank.
Yeah, Jimmeh, you sure took it ta dem thar Islamo-fascists durin' yur tahm in office. Brilliant!
Maybe after 9/11 we should have boycotted the next Olympics instead of kicking their asses.
This startling revelation came from Carter during the pimping of his new audiobook series "Sunday Morning in Plains" -- a series on Bible lessons from Plains, Georgia.
The best reaction came from Amber Wilkerson of the RNC:
"Apparently, Sunday mornings in Plains for former President Carter includes hurling reckless accusations at your fellow man," said Amber Wilkerson, Republican National Committee spokeswoman. She said that it was hard to take Carter seriously because he also "challenged Ronald Reagan's strategy for the Cold War."
Brian at Pereiraville gets today's "HOOAH of the Day" in his post ACCEPTABLE LOSSES.
Actually this is the first entry for HOOAH of the DAY
...and maybe the last one too
...but then again, you never know it could be something that I should continue
...on the other hand, posting other people's thoughts is...hmm...I wonder what's for dinner tonight....I hope it's chicken...wait a minute....
... did I actually just type my inner monologue?
....did I just do it again? Uh.....hey you!.....go read Brian's post and quit reading my mind.

Here is my 4-step plan to end the immigration debate:
Step 1: Invade Mexico. They started this immigration war, let's finish it.
Step 2: Rename Mexico the State of NAWS (the New American Welfare State)
Step 3: Turn the State of NAWS into a collective farming system (so that the new American citizens will feel at home, and won't actually have to migrate north.)
Step 4: Take over all NAWS oilfields (cuz that's what we do -- just ask George Soros' porcine asspuppet, Rosie O'Dumbass)
- Would we have the political support to do this? Hell yes.
DEMOCRATS: The Democrats will support the war since their New American Welfare State will garner them about 103 million more votes. Being elected as the governor, mayors and state legislature will give Democrats the power for which they constantly pander. And because Democrats view the American public as too stupid to run their own lives, they'll get a collective woody running a state chock full of poor, helpless citizens averaging an 8th grade education.
REPUBLICANS: Republicans will like the whole oil thing. Need I say more?
Seriously though, it is quite clear that the current Mexican government is simply incapable of running their own country. The US, being a country who loves to helps others, is more than capable of taking over the dilapidated infrastructure (and oil) that the Mexicans simply don't know how to handle. We'd also have a smaller border to enforce.
Realistically we're already paying for the education, health care, welfare, et. al. of half of the population of Mexico; we might as well take care of the rest (and get some oil for our trouble).
Oh, and they'll need a new flag:

Military Bloggers: Despite the worries by the hierarchy, I have seen only five
valid OPSEC violations in two years from Military Bloggers concerning
ISF/Coalition forces (only 1 in the last year). MilBloggers tend to lose unit
IDs and details in their writings in a way that PAOs should study and learn
Despite the misfocus of the OPSEC Czars in the Army [Army OPSEC Reg],By way of example, DJ Elliott shows this pic and the caption provided by the PAOs. Go read it there.
the Milblogs are comparable to SOF in the quality of their OPSEC. The troops
and their families are not the problem. That is probably because they are
the ones most personally affected by the results of a violation. The
senior officers in their briefs and PAOs in their press releases are the
ones that tend to brag on their unit(s). They provide a level of detail that is unnecessary and only useful to an intel collector. I know that they are proud of their troops and want to get their story out but, think about their
lives before you speak.
What's Wrong With The Caption?

CPT. Anthony Deiss said...
Rogue,Your post about CENTCOM restricting the blogging of military personnel in-country is 100% in-accurate [sic]. CENTCOM does not write, dictate or publish US Army policy - especially in reguards [sic] towards the new OPSEC 530-1 regulation recently released. The revisions made to this regulation were made without consultation or advisement from anyone within the CENTCOM command. US Army desision[sic] makers and policy writers make revisions and updates to regulations based on a number (of) changing variables. These policies serve to protect soldiers and give guidance to commanders who must make desisions [sic]about how to best safeguard soldiers, technologies and sensitive information.CENTCOM has pioneered the efforts in the military to reach out to milbloggers. This command is its biggest supporter. We are continually trying to work with the milblogging community and bridge the gap that exists between those of us who believe in milblogging and those in the military who have yet to understand the full impact and contribution milblogs make to winning the information war.To say CENTCOM has restricted the blogging of military personnel in-country is not only false, but irresponsible when you fail to even consult the command on its involvement or position in this issue.
- CPT. Anthony Deiss, US CENTCOM Public Affairs
In reply: First, I'd like to thank CPT Deiss for his clear intent to protect his bloggers, however, I never stated CENTCOM wrote the regulations...my concern was the enforcement of an assinine policy that trusts soldiers to carry guns but not to write home. I try to keep my posts short so viewers can peruse them quickly then move on to other blogs that interest them. Here are my expanded thoughts:
CENTCOM is a unified command currently run by a Navy flag officer (ironic since all the fighting happens in the desert) and is based at an Air Force installation in Florida. Did CENTCOM's Admiral Fallon call General George Casey (the former MNF-Iraq commander and now Army Chief of Staff) and ask for/demand a waiver from this requirement? After all, who is this regulation targeting? Clearly the most read military blogs report on Iraq. Or did CENTCOM, wanting to avoid stepping on General Casey's toes, just blindly decide to live with the change?
If the former, I owe CENTCOM an apology; if the latter, they owe an apology to all the soldier-bloggers.
Who is it that drove this military blogger change? As mentioned, General Casey must know the impact of increased restrictions on bloggers. The soldier-citizen-blogger has consistently countered the dire portrait painted by the MSM. They personalize the concepts of Duty-Honor-Country when ordinary citizens read about their exploits and their desire to finish the fight. What could be gained by this change and who did it?
Should we blame Army Major Ray Ceralde. Was he ever in combat or is he just another poguey whipping boy who wrote updates to the regulation on his own?
If CENTCOM, with its Navy Commander-in-Chief, is willing to apply for a waiver for their bloggers, then I will agree with Captain Deiss, declare myself ill-informed and apologize to the CENTCOM Public Affairs staff in this blog. But that waiver MUST BE IN WRITING to prevent the stricter language of the regulation being enforced when the Army finds it convenient. The waiver need not excuse OPSEC violations, only the ridiculous explanation of Major Ceralde stating,
"The regulation says that a Soldier or other U.S. Army personnel must consult with their immediate supervisor and OPSEC officer prior to posting information in a public forum."
However, if CENTCOM salutes smartly and stands by while AR 530-1 impacts our bloggers, then the previous post remains as written.
Meanwhile -- To all of Our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines -- Keep the Faith, Stay Safe, and God Bless.

"...the Anbar Salvation Council scored a major victory against al Qaeda in Iraq. Sam Dagher of the Christian Science Monitor reports on how the Anbar Salvation Council, led by Sheikh Abdul Sattar Abu Rishawi, turned the Albu Fahd tribe against al Qaeda. The Albu Fahd was one of the six original Anbari tribes to support al Qaeda and its Islamic State in Iraq. These six tribes are known in some military intelligence circles as the "Sinister Six". The Albu Fahd [described as the Bu-Fahed] has now joined the Anbar Salvation Council and pledged to throw its weight behind the fight against al Qaeda.Go over and read the rest if you want info on Mu-retarda Al-Sadr's Mahdi Army and more...
"Winning over the Bu-Fahed tribe was a coup," said Mr. Dagher, who covered the tribal meeting where the Albu Fahd moved into the camp of the Anbar Salvation Council. "It had been one of Al Qaeda's staunchest supporters, and traces its lineage to the birthplace of the puritan form of Sunni Islam known as Wahhabism in the Saudi Arabian province of Najd. It formally threw its lot behind Sheikh Abdel-Sattar Abu Risha." the pickup of the Albu Fahd comes as the Anbar Salvation Council has made gains outside of its home province and is expanding in Diyala, Salahadin and Baghdad.

This was done after CENTCOM restricted the blogging of military personnel in-country.
What a bunch of morons!
The bloggers were the best hope for the American People to experience the actual "ground truth" of those who live it everyday. The Army is concerned about OPSEC (Operational Security) and wants to ensure vital information is not posted on the Internet.
Hey! I got some better ideas than muffling the troops:
1) Have all bloggers undergo OPSEC/COMSEC training and sign non-disclosure agreements before they can blog, or,
2) Restrict it to NCOs (E-5) and above, or,
3) Find the person who released confidential information and waterboard them publicly.
While as a former military man I understand that I didn't have the same depth of Constitutional rights as other Americans, I also understand that this affects the American public as much as the troops.
Some Perfumed Prince™ is probably, right now, getting a medal pinned on his chest for this brilliant idea.
UPDATE - The Army is beginning to back down on its policy on Military bloggers. LINK: But it ain't good enough.
In France, Germany, Great Britain, Spain, Indonesia, Kashmir, Thailand, Pakistan (etc. ) we find a pervasive threat to freedom that kills men, women, and children. Look at those places and you'll find radical Islamists fighting to retard freedom. They import their destructive ideology, trying to form the world in their vision of what is "right" and "just".
America was largely untouched by this threat until September 11, 2001. But, on that day, one Man determined to stand against this cancerous outgrowth of religion. Even today, that one Man understands that we fight for our very existence and the freedom of billions.
Opposing him are those who seek power for power's sake. They deride that Man, calling him "liar" and "idiot". Many of the American People, (safe because of the efforts of other Americans), have grown tired of the war against the radicals. They can live their lives without fear and so they feel insulated from the threat. They perpetuate the poison of the opposition because they have not felt the sting of the enemy for almost 6 years. Their memories are short, their stamina is insufficient, their view of the world is egocentric. They could not find Iraq on a world map if you spotted them the Middle East, and yet, they think they know better what will keep them safe at night. Threat, what threat?
"Liar" -- yet the opposition also voted to go to war...Hillary, Edwards. Are they liars, too? They saw the same intelligence reports. They drew the same conclusions...we have their quotes, no matter how they try to run from them. They call him "liar" but have yet to show the lie.
"Idiot" -- yet the Man was a better student than their own candidate for his job. At least he understands the threat. Does the opposition? If not, are they fools or are they blind? Can they not see the spread of this threat throughout Europe? I am not cynicial enough to believe that (1) they understand the threat and(2) they are purposefully ignoring it just to denigrate the Man...though I could be wrong. I truly believe that they do not possess the intellect necessary to grasp the evil against which the Man contests. And what about those who follow the opposition? Can they not see they're duped by a media who votes overwhelmingly for the opposition, or are they so self-centered that they don't believe terrorism will ever happen to them?
Hegel mentioned World Historical Individuals, those who by differing methods brought increased freedom to the world. Alexander, Napoleon. They did so by bringing crisis to the world, and the world reacted to them. They come at pivotal times in history...this is Hegel's Cunning of Reason; the way the world reacts to the conqueror and releases more freedom. Is Bin Laden today's World Historical Individual who sparks a reaction from the World -- refuting his vision and seeking greater freedom? Will the Man stand against the conqueror or will he be stopped by those who seek their own power?
We won't know until the final act of this play is complete.
Hegel also talked about those defining moments when freedom was unleashed by the "slaughter-bench" of history. Blood had to be shed to move the world toward freedom. What will happen to freedom if, in our comfortable affluent lives , we fail to act today?
These are the thoughts that keep me up at night

Praise be to Gaia.....Gaia Akbar!!! The Great Gaia has also sanctified the use of waterless urinals, solar lighting, recycled paper and a toilet paper dispenser that only releases one square at a time. Soon our brothers will install the Divine Methane Absorbers.
In literal form do the Ministers and Mullahs of Gaia Napa Valley Hotel and Spa (peace be upon them) enact the words given by the Prophet Goreacle (pbuh) in the Holy Book...
"Man must refrain from the unholy act of farting in public for yea verily doth the poison of Man's bowels perfume the Earth with Death. Blessed is he who absorbs the foul exhalations of the alimentary canal and protects Holy Gaia from these baneful emanations." Book of Albert, page 73, para 4, verses 1-8Surely our hallowed brothers strive against the Prophet's (pbuh) dire warning for Holy Gaia...
"...and lo the Earth did warm, polar bears did expire and Man did perish from the Earth."Book of Albert, page 98, para 3, verses 3-5
Each of us has a part to play in this jihad. Go now upon the Earth and carry forth the message contained in this link. The health and prosperity of the Goracle (pbuh) hangs in the balance.

I just downloaded these headlines published in the New York Times :
"Citizens Reveal Hate of Americans"
"Loss of Victory in Country Through U.S. Policy Feared"
"Locals Declare Americans Hated"
Is it really going that bad in Iraq? Don't they realize we are trying to rebuild their country and guide them to self-government? Here are some excerpts from each of the articles:
"According to a military government official, this is finding expression in
the organization of numerous local anti-American organizations throughout
the zone and in a rapid increase in the number of attacks on American
