The US military has paid tribute to Maj Gen Harold Greene, killed by an Afghan soldier in an insider attack on Tuesday, as a "true hero".
Gen Greene, the most senior US soldier killed in action overseas since Vietnam, was shot dead as he visited a UK-run military training facility.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai said the shooting was a "cowardly attack".
Officials said the Afghan soldier who opened fire had subsequently been shot dead.
At least 15 other soldiers were injured. Two Britons, several Americans and generals from Germany and Afghanistan were among the wounded.
Insider attacks have become one of the defining features of the later phase of the conflict in Afghanistan.
They have hampered efforts to train the country's 350,000-strong security force as they prepare to take on the Taliban once most US and Nato forces depart.
Dirtbag in chief Oblama said nothing.

UNBELIEVABLE

When pressed on his failure to get comprehensive immigration reform, Obama blamed the economy and Republicans in Congress.

But to Univision host Jorge Ramos, that answer was not good enough.

"You promised that, and a promise is a promise," Ramos told Obama. "And with all due respect, you didn't keep that promise."

Obama responded with this:

"There's the thinking that the president is somebody who is all-powerful and can get everything done. In our branch, in our system of government, I am the head of the executive branch. I'm not the head of the legislature, I'm not the head of the judiciary. We have to have cooperation from all these sources in order to get something done.¨

How did you say it? "A failure like (John Kerry) just has to tear down genuine heroes with lies."
It's obvious the Navy didn't want to give the award to Kerry. They actually wrote in the award he got the award for directing fire at an enemy running away. Nowhere in the award does it describe Kerry being under fire. Kerry is a treasonous lying fraud.
Shall we go over Kerry's FUBAR 90 days in Vietnam again where he blew himself up twice and got his third PH when one of his crew knocked the shit out of him when they knocked him off the controls of the boat and brought the boat back to where Kerry ran away from when a fight started. Word is, they got Kerry out of there before his crew fragged his ass. So, they gave him a PH for a bruise on his arm he got when one of his crew knocked the shit out of him to take control of the boat and bring it back to the other boats engaged with the enemy.
Old Stab 'em in the Back Kerry? He and Hanoi Jane will be room mates in Hell.

DIVORCE AGREEMENT
Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:
We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce.
I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.
Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.
Here is our separation agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy!
Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
1. We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
2. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.
3. Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.
4. We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.
5. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.
6. We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.
7. You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.
8. We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks.
9. We'll keep Bill O'Reilly, and Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood.
10. You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
11. You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.
12. We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.
13. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
14. We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.
15. You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.
16. We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem." I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine", "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing", "Kum Ba Ya" or "We Are the World".
17. We'll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.
18. Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.
In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.
Sincerely,
John J. Wall
Law Student and an American
P.S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin and Charlie Sheen, Barbara Streisand, and Hanoi Jane Fonda with you.
P.S.S. And you won't have to press 1 for English when you call our country.
Love it!!

Sorry I'm late. But several federal government workers were caught watching porn - some of them up to 6 hours a day - on their computers at work because "they were bored and didn't have anything else to do."

But don't talk about shrinking the size of an oversized and overbloated government with too much duplicity and waste. The liberals on here will go KER-A-A-A-ZY!

The anti-Semitic Left

The most telling indicator of anti-Semitism is the application of standards to Jews that are not applied to non-Jews.

Under that analytical focus, there is no question but that the response of most of the world’s media and the US government itself to Israel’s defense of itself from Gaza attacks qualified as anti-Semitic.

Bret Stephens, in the Wall Street Journal’s Global Review column, points out Pakistan’s recent offensive in the northwest part of that country that directly parallels Israel’s efforts on Gaza.

The world seems rather indifferent to the airstrikes, the casualties, and the refugees in Pakistan. And the parallels to Gaza are striking, up to and including the discovery of tunnels.

Yet nobody beyond a few journalists utters a peep, and the world’s protest groups are silent.

Why? Israel and Jews aren't involved.

Most Americans support Israel and understand the crucial and strategic reasons why our continued allegiance is vital.
