Get it done!

General Haig though sometimes only remembering for getting the chain succession (I'm in charge!) just after the President Reagan assasination attemp, is still a soldier and a stand up guy. For a long time I and other military vets past and present have lamented, "Let's just get this thing over with" as far as Iraq is concerned. General Haig agrees:

"BOSTON - Former Nixon adviser Alexander Haig said military leaders in Iraq are repeating a mistake made in Vietnam by not applying the full force of the military to win the war.

“Every asset of the nation must be applied to the conflict to bring about a quick and successful outcome, or don’t do it,” Haig said. “We’re in the midst of another struggle where it appears to me we haven’t learned very much.”

The problem in this war as in others is half the country wants to bail out and go home and write off the deaths of those who fought and died as an "Oh well, that's damn shame".

Had Roosevelt listened to those cowards and appeasers back in the 40s to pull out and run, the world would have fallen to Socialism and Communisim within a few short years. Indeed it was an appeaser that allowed Hilter to gain nearly enough power to take over the world.

Thankfully REAL leaders of that day, and the ones that followed had the foresight to look down the generations. They could see walls built and then torn down. They could see tolitarianism rise and come crashing to the ground - as it did in the 80s and 90s.

President Bush remarked recently that his decision to invade Iraq would be debated for years to come, but the proof of whether it was the right decision won't be known for decades. Should Iraq's democracy spread throughout the mideast it will save untold millions of lives that now are snuffed out by cowards planting car bombs.

Civilization and civilized societies do not rise by accident but by design and hard work and tenacity and above all vision of leaders who use their leadership to build the future and make it safe for generations to follow. Because of this they are always critcised and accused of wrong doing during their tenure, but that is in itself the proof of their greatness.

The visionaries are always cursed in their day - never in their life time. Reagan was lauded as a doting and forgetful old man during his presidency. But his tenacity and vision tore down the dividing wall of hostility and united a nation.

The vision of cowards never built anything, accomplished anything, or lives for anything but it's own sad safety or welbeing. There has never been a selfish hero, only cowards, and lord knows we have plenty of them in this country getting voice.

Let us never have leaders like that.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Sniper Attack Las Vegas Music Festival

Police are hunting for the female companion of a lone gunman who killed at least 20 people, including two off-duty police officers, and injured more than 100 injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Officers believe Marilou Danley, who they described as a middle-aged Asian woman, has more information on the man who attacked the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night before being killed.
That man was named by 9 News as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, who was known to local law enforcement.
Police were reported to be searching his house in the early hours of Monday morning, though there was no indication of a motive.
The Strip was completely shut down after the man, described by police as 'a local' opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino.
