Wave of Baghdad blasts kills at least 75  

BAGHDAD (AP) - A series of explosions targeting government and commercial buildings struck Baghdad Wednesday, killing at least 75 people and wounding more than 300, Iraqi police and medical officials said.

The blasts in the capital followed a string of attacks in Iraq this month that have claimed hundreds of lives and raised concerns about the ability of Iraqi security forces to keep the lid on violence in advance of an American withdrawal.

The deadliest was a car bomb near the foreign ministry, which killed at least 59 people and wounded 250. Officials said the toll may climb as rescue workers continue to search through rubble and debris. The ministry is close to the fortified Green Zone. The officials all spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information.

The force of the explosion blew concrete slabs off the front of the 10-story building, shattering windows and crushing cars parked outside. Dozens of cars were burned.

According to an OFFICIAL source, Baghdad Bob, as soon as the Great Satan is out of Iraq, the Civil War can begin in earnest!

My most sincere hope is that NO Americans were killed in this attack.

These are the people that, not too long ago, so many Americans cried and fretted over, Support Iraqi Freedom and all that. You know what and who I mean.

The Iraqis have been fighting, and KILLING one another since time began. There is nothing that we, or any other civilized western power can do to stop it either. Cut our losses! Get the hell OUT and let them kill each other, not our troops.

Obama in political box over closing Guantanamo

Obama in political box over closing Guantanamo

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama finds himself in a political box - at home and abroad - on closing the Guantanamo Bay prison, and will be trying Thursday to use a major address on national security to work out of the tight spot.

Obama takes on the explosive topic a day after the Senate, at the behest of majority Democrats, denied his request for $80 million to close the prison. The 90-6 vote followed a similar move last week in the House and underscored widespread apprehension among Obama’s Democratic allies in Congress over the issue.

In an e-mail summarizing topics the president will address, a senior administration official did not mention the congressional setback. Instead, the official said. the Obama administration was working through what he termed a “flood of legal challenges” that are left over from the Bush administration’s handling of Guantanamo prisoners.

Providing a summary of the speech on condition of anonymity because it has not yet been delivered, this official wrote that the president will work through the cases of the remaining 240 prisoners at Guantanamo by:

Obama in political box over closing Guantanamo

The teleprompter president is at it again. He gets more TV time than Billy Mays and the Sham-Wow guy combined. Here’s the funny part, they are all selling pretty much the same product, bullshit!

Obama got *bitch slapped* by the Senate yesterday, and it wasn’t over anything that is totally earth shattering concerning the American people. It was all because even the duplicitous Dems don’t want the terrorists, uh, wait, man caused disaster makers held here in America. Our hypocritical senate stood up to Obama simply to make sure that some of the most dangerous persons on this earth aren’t being housed in their back yards! It’s as simple as that.

In spite of lawmakers’ concerns, the administration plans to send a top al-Qaida suspect held at Guantanamo Bay to New York to stand trial for the deadly 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa, Attorney General Eric Holder announced early Thursday. The suspect, Ahmed Ghailani, would be the first Guantanamo detainee brought to the U.S. and the first to face trial in a civilian criminal court.

If there are any terrorists in sleeper cells, uh, wait, purveyors of man caused disaster in the USA, that trial event may well be the trigger for these person(s) to spring into action. The catalyst if you will.

We are fighting a war on terror, uh, wait, that’s not it, we are conducting an overseas contingency operation against enemies, dang, what was that called? Oh yeah, poor, misunderstood and impoverished Muslims that are intent on killing, damn, that’s not PC either, that only wish to convert us to their Religion of Peace. That is what Barack Obama would have the American public believe.

Well here’s the REAL deal, even the Dems aren’t THAT stupid Barack. Even the folks in your own party are beginning to see you and your FAR LEFT moonbat ideologies for what they really are, the potential death of this nation, the Islamification of America.

I am not a PC blogger, I am NOT very PC in my public speech either, I call a spade a spade, and on occasion I have been a lot more explicit than that. We are fighting a WAR ON TERROR against a herd of 7th century fanatics that are intent on killing anyone that doesn’t convert to their way of thinking and believing! Islam, and it’s members, are NOT a Religion of Peace, they are, more appropriately, a Religion of Death, Pedophilia and Beastiality.

Unlike our president, I call it as I see it, and hopefully, our Congress and Senate will soon follow by doing likewise. The tide is turning here in America, the politicians are seeing it turn before their very eyes, and they are NOT stupid, they are massively egotistical, but even their egos know, without the backing of the American people, they are OUT of a job.

And you know, regarding about 90% of these elected egotists, voting them OUT and starting over is not a bad idea. Starting at the very top and working our way ALL the way through both houses and then into the state levels.

Obama is NOT trying to do the right thing by closing Guantanamo, he is looking to appease our so-called allies and not further infuriate the Islamic terrorists among us. Our Senate isn’t trying to do the right thing, they are playing politics as usual, they are a lot more aware of the current mood of the American voter than they would like to admit.

We have the American politician on the defensive, almost on the run, and that is exactly where most of them need to be kept! And for what it’s worth, when the executive director of the ACLU says, “I left the meeting feeling discouraged that President Obama plans to continue with many of the same policies of the Bush administration”, you know that some serious pressure is being exerted on Obama from somewhere in the legislative branch!

101 killed as gunmen rampage in India city

101 killed as gunmen rampage in India city

MUMBAI, India (AP) - A trickle of bodies and hostages emerged from a luxury hotel Thursday as Indian commandoes tried to free people trapped by suspected Muslim militants who attacked at least 10 targets in India’s financial capital of Mumbai, killing 101 people.

More than 300 were also wounded in the highly coordinated attacks Wednesday night by bands of gunmen who invaded two five star hotels, a popular restaurant, a crowded train station, a Jewish center and at least five other sites, armed with assault rifles, hand grenades and explosives.

A previously unknown Islamic militant group claimed responsibility for the carnage, the latest in a series of nationwide terror attacks over the past three years that have dented India’s image as an industrious nation galloping toward prosperity.

Among the dead were at least one Australian, a Japanese and a British national, said Pradeep Indulkar, a senior government official of Maharashtra state, whose capital is Mumbai. The Italian Foreign Ministry in Rome said an Italian was also killed.

Indulkar said 101 people were killed and 314 injured. Officials said eight militants were also killed.

It’s going to happen here too folks, right here on U.S. soil, it has been nothing less than a miracle that it hasn’t already, and we would be foolish to NOT think it can’t, or won’t happen here.

If the Obama administration tries to throw some *gun control* BS at us, saying that ‘stricter gun laws will stop things like this from happening here’, or that ‘if Americans give up their guns this type of thing won’t happen to us’, don’t fall for it, it’s a lie. The Dems know it’s a lie, the Libbers even know it’s a lie, but they would be happy to give up our only real personal protection and just *roll over* if that’s what they are told they must do to achieve world peace!

It IS coming, some of us have been fervently blogging about it, some have been preaching it for a long time now, domestic terror, acts of terror committed right here, on our homes, in our homeland, is a realistic possibility. The players are already in place, our long time wide open borders, and lax immigration enforcement, have given them all the opportunity that is needed to get in place and prepare.

If you doubt that, think about this, if the drug runners can sneak drugs across the border, what stops terrorists from sneaking assault rifles, grenades and other explosive ordinance into the USA?? Our *totally secure* border maybe??

Think about it folks, never let it scare you, but never let it be too far from your thoughts. Use caution and prepare for the attacks that will happen, right here in America. I do not think it’ll be passenger jets into buildings this time, but instead, I believe we’ll face attacks just like the Indians are presently dealing with.

I know that this is a heavy post for Thanksgiving Day, but we can NEVER give in and we must NEVER let our guard down. The best to ALL of you, and enjoy your Thanksgiving with your loved ones! I’ll be back sometime Sunday afternoon.

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!!
