THOUGHTS OF THE DAY 6/13

BATTLE STRATEGY HISTORY OF THE DAY:

I.S.I.L. – ISLAMIC STATE IN IRAQ AND THE LEVANT

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_State_of_Iraq_and_the_Levant

This is the group that is kicking the crap out of IRAQI FORCES, which are really not a force at all.  The Iraqi Army is weak and feeble and they do not have the loyalty that a normal army would.  The soldiers will jump ship in a second and take off their uniform and walk away from their duty (does this sound familiar Bergdahl?) The Iraqi’s are in a tough spot to say the least.  The good thing for America is that we don’t need the Iraqi oil as much as we used too and we can get it from Kurdistan.  It seems the Kurds are taking what they thought was theirs all along, Kirkuk being one of the cities.  Maliki is in a terrible position, but he was in a terrible position all along.  Worst case situation, Baghdad falls and Maliki leaves and lives off of the millions he has padded away, or billions, the population be damned.

TIME UNTIL NEXT POTUS ELECTION:

878 Days, 15 Hours, 45 Minutes, 34 Seconds

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they are ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”

— President Ronald Reagan

VIDEOS OF THE DAY:

TAKE DOWN

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRDGUz5I4Ms

Good video to show four guys trying to take down one guy.  Each had twenty seconds to take the guy down.  Pay attention to how the “victim” is standing and how he moves his hands, shoulders, balance, and weight.  Very good video.  Enjoy.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY:

Battle tactics in regards to Iraq at present would demand a sit back and watch approach.  There are so many factors going on right now that nothing we do anyway is going to make a bit of difference.  We should sit back let the Iraqi’s kill themselves or destroy their country and see who takes over.  Whoever that is, we will deal with or pay off.  It is a system we have used to great benefit before. It is the only system that has worked.  Anything else would be a waste of our time, resources and people.  And these are the cold hard facts of war.  You don’t like it, don’t get into it.  War is not handing out candy, and spouting “hearts and minds” I believe we can see that whole crap job was some Liberal General’s circle jerk theory that should never have been stated.  It is embarrassing now and it was embarrassing then.  War is ugly, killing, maiming, destructive, useless and useful all at once.  You get in and you get out as fast as you can and you have a fricking PLAN OF ACTION for getting in and then GETTING OUT.  There is no tie, there is winning or losing and losing is death so it’s not an option.  It is not having soldiers act like ice-cream men.  They are there to kill and conquer, and then leave.  Again, you don’t like them apples, then join the Priesthood and get the Hell out of the way.

RULE OF THE DAY:

There has never been a successful OCCUPATION.  There never will be.  This is one of those things that POLITICIANS say is possible and when it fails, which it always does, you hear, “We are so sorry, we will do better next time.”  Of course the politicians go home to their families and the soldiers go home to death, maiming, PTSD, etc., etc.  There is no excuse for this type of negligence from our leaders.  History books and books on warfare are flu of the fact that one country no matter how strong and rich can maintain an occupation of another.  The endeth the lesson.
