Something aint right in Jabip! Hmmm. Lets study how it was that during the initial routing of the Taliban there was the Northern Alliance and other tribal warlords who assisted. Now, the building up of the Afgan security force, riff with Taliban sympathizers or spies seems more apro-po. Hmmmm....
New Strategy 101. Whatever deal Rossevelt made with the Saudi Princes and Kings should be called off. Put on hold. Rethought and considered in a much changed world. Until the Saudhi's open up their financial records in country so those who funded the 911 can be seen in the clear light of day, I say they have much to hide. No?

Rossevelt worked on Wall Street before becoming President.

You might have something there. The Mexican Army would eat the Arabs up! However, this is Afganistan.

OKEECHOBEE COUNTY — A man whose blood-alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit faces felony charges after a Saturday crash that fatally injured a woman and left two others with less severe wounds, according to an arrest affidavit released Monday.

Isaias Mejia-Hernandez, 26, who is in the country illegally, faces DUI manslaughter, DUI serious bodily injury, DUI property damage and no drivers license (involving a death) charges following the head-on crash in Okeechobee County, the affidavit states.

Mejia-Hernandez, of Okeechobee, was driving a Mitsubishi Eclipse south on US 441 about 6 p.m. when he veered into the northbound lane, colliding with a Chevrolet minivan driven by 54-year-old Orpha G. Turner.

Turner and rear passenger Rayla R. Ross, 8, were taken to Raulerson Hospital in Okeechobee, while 49-year-old Kimberly S. Mumford, the front seat passenger, went to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute in Fort Pierce. Mejia-Hernandez also went to Lawnwood.

Turner died at the hospital, while Ross’ injuries were minor. Mumford sustained a broken right arm and wrist and had lacerations and abrasions to her arms, chest, facial area and legs.

Mejia-Hernandez, listed as a farm worker, told Florida Highway Patrol investigators he’d been arguing with his girlfriend, Maria, though couldn’t recall her last name.

After the quarrel about noon or 1 p.m., he said he met friends at the “Mexican cantina” in Okeechobee and drank “at least a 12 pack of Bud Light beer or maybe more.” He drank “most of the afternoon” but wasn’t sure of how many hours. Mejia-Hernandez later said he’d been drinking at a friend’s home, but didn’t know where that was located.

Mejia-Hernandez, who has no license and is in the country illegally, had a blood-alcohol content of 0.283 more than three times the legal limit, investigators said.

Investigators found several full beer cans in Mejia-Hernandez’s vehicle and two crushed beer cans.

Twice Mejia-Hernandez allegedly tried to leave Lawnwood. He was arrested Sunday and taken to the St. Lucie County jail.

If we want to win the first thing we have to do is get rid of every single liberal that holds any position of power in our government or our military.

You ask the real men who command the troops what they need and give it to them.

You turn them loose and let them do what has to be done.

This shit will be over with in six months.

lol...
and you to might just have sumpin there. Resources, eh?

Aint it sumpin? Obama said ten days or so ago, "The United States and China will pave the way into the future in the 21at century".

Meanwhile, they sell us this polarization of grabbing resources . ITs called
create a problem, whilst knowing the reaction the masses will have all the while you have the solution ready from their expected outcry. Anticipation, eh? The whole goal being one and the same in problem or crises creation.

Now........the sympathetic perceptions of the news work on the masses. Note the pic in Topix of a fatigued soldier as the worst month and new stradegy for Afganistan headlines the story.

How ironic it is indeed David Icke in 1999 to be standing in this video before the Bank of England and there to find they have the gaul to have statues of soldiers from 2 world wars they funded.

ARGH~!

I got a new stradegy. Next time resource contracts are signed after the American taxpayer has been billed for the Military adventure ( IRAQ), make certain its not a Dutch Petroleum company ( SHELL) who gets the contract as in Iraq. Ensure, American blood is never again spilled for Globalists International Bankers profit.

THe Tenth Amendment of the United States of America speaks of Soverignty. Not a wasting of our resources and American blood for International Corporate and Global interests.

Best new strategy, put the Taliban on the new Obama Government Health Care Paln. This will surely kill them all.
