Hezbollah training hit squads in Iran

WASHINGTON - Iraqi Shiite assassination teams are being trained in at least four locations in Iran by Tehran’s elite Quds force and Lebanese Hezbollah and are planning to return to Iraq in the next few months to kill specific Iraqi officials as well as U.S. and Iraqi troops, according to intelligence gleaned from captured militia fighters and other sources in Iraq.

US: Quds, Hezbollah training hit squads in Iran

I have never been known for my *tact* nor my political correctness, and this is no time for me to even try to change my writing style.

The U.S.A. is in a seriously bad position in regards to being a World Leader at this point in time, I have personally witnessed our military and Intel services fall, in their numbers and capabilities over the last 20 or so years, and many Vets that served in the last 20/30 years have often remarked on that fact, and how the desecration of the military by the Clinton administration was one of the more powerful factors in their decision to end their time in service.

We face threats today that many Americans can’t even conceive. We have enemies all over the globe, and they come in ALL shapes, sizes, colors and religious persuasions, and their numbers continue to grow each and every day. The current crisis in Georgia only magnifies the truth of these words.

Since Ronald Reagan left office this nation has been in a steep dive into the depths of *One World Government*, and the Bush family has been leading the charge. The Clintons helped this decent to progress by literally dismantling our Intel services, and by their reduction of U.S. combat forces and their capabilities.

We now have to admit, there is nothing we can do in Georgia, even if we wanted to, we don’t have the military power anymore, it’s all been *down sized*. We have an all volunteer force, much smaller numbers, but very well trained and equipped, yet drastically undermanned to engage in a *BIG* fight. The level of dedication and patriotism of our troops is not being questioned, what I DO question is the leadership OF those troops, starting with the Commander in Chief.

The U.S.A. has been reduced to the role of toothless tiger, 1st by the ineptness of Bush 41, then by the Clinton debacle that led to our military and Intel services being emasculated, and most recently by the moronic *leadership* of Bush 43, a president that believes himself to be some sort of great leader, when he is, in fact, not capable of leading a troop of Boy Scouts on a hike.

We were once the protector of the world, of all that was good and just, today we have a president that can do nothing more than engage in bumbling rhetoric as he demands that Russia withdraw from Georgia. What motivation do the Russians have to listen to that weak rhetoric? Fear that we will declare war on them?? Does anyone even remotely believe that Russia will act out of the goodness in their hearts?

Any way the ball bounces, the election of 2008 is NOT going to produce a leader that can, or will take the U.S.A. back to that level of respect we had during the Reagan years. If anything, depending on the outcome in November, we’ll be in an even worse position.

Apathy abounds, fully HALF of this nation doesn’t have the fortitude to stand and fight in their own defense, HALF of this nation see nothing wrong with our own borders being violated, daily, by ILLEGALS and an assortment of other nefarious characters.

We can’t, or, more correctly, won’t secure our own nation, the world sees that, as do our enemies, as a weakness to be exploited, they KNOW that a nation that can’t, or won’t guard it’s own sovereignty, is a nation that is ripe for the talking. How can we be expected to protect and defend our allies that are in NATO?? How can we be expected to stand and defend Israel, our most valuable ally??

Iran is training assassination teams, and without a doubt, Russia is supplying the Iraqis and Lebanese Hezbollah with all the necessary tools to get the job done. And what do you suppose we can, or will do about it?? Send Condi Rice to Tehran with a strongly worded demand to *cease and desist*??

The leadership of and command decisions made by the Bush administration have been far less than stellar. Condi Rice, for example, while a brilliant and well spoken woman, is just a woman as far as Islamic governments, terrorists and insurgents are concerned, and as such, she has little or no influence, or value in an Arab negotiation process.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we, the people, are suffering the government we have given ourselves, the government we have allowed to take the reins of this nation, and the choices that we face in November will NOT make the position we are in just go away. If anything, the coming election will only worsen our plight in life and our respect as a once great world power.

Perhaps a really bad presidency, one even worse than that of Bush 43, maybe that will be what it takes to wake this nation up, my only hope is that we can survive the position that WE have gotten ourselves into and allowed to grow for the last 20 years.

God help us if we can’t!
