TR Tuesday

Sorry about the dearth of posts around here lately...things have been kind of busy around here as you might imagine. I will try and post what details I can later...but in the mean time here's a Teddy Roosevelt quote that you might find some meaning in...

I believe in nationalism as the absolute prerequisite to internationalism. I believe in patriotism as the absolute prerequisite to the larger Americanism. I believe in Americanism because unless our people are good Americans first, America can accomplish little or nothing worth accomplishing for the good of the world as a whole.

This is something I think a lot of people in our great nation would do well to heed. But what the hell do I know?...(sarcasm on)I'm just an ignorant dupe of the Bush family (sarcasm off)

The Arena

Since I already gave you one TR quote the other day, here's another that I feel is very fitting...

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first, the love of soft living and the get rich quick theory of life. -- Teddy Roosevelt

Germans Protest The Fact That THEY Are The Villain In Every WWII Movie

No not really, but that would be about as stupid as this...

From ABC News

Muslims Unhappy Over `24' Portrayal
Muslims Protest Reprised Role As Terrorists in Fox Hit Series `24'
The Associated Press
CLIFTON, N.J. - Two years ago, Muslim groups protested when the plot of the hit Fox drama `24' cast Islamic terrorists as the villains who launched a stolen nuclear missile in an attack on America.

Now, after a one-year respite during which Russian separatists played the bad guys on the critically acclaimed series, Muslims are back in the evil spotlight. Unlike last time, when agent Jack Bauer saved the day, the terrorists this time have already succeeded in detonating a nuclear bomb in a Los Angeles suburb.

Being portrayed again as the heartless wrongdoers has drawn renewed protests from Muslim groups, including one that had a meeting with Fox executives two years ago over the issue.

"The overwhelming impression you get is fear and hatred for Muslims," said Rabiah Ahmed, a spokeswoman for the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. She said Thursday she was distressed by this season's premiere. "After watching that show, I was afraid to go to the grocery store because I wasn't sure the person next to me would be able to differentiate between fiction and reality."

She said the group had a conference call Wednesday with Fox executives to protest the current plot line and request more positive portrayals of Muslims on the show, but was not promised anything.

After a January 2005 meeting with CAIR, Fox aired a commercial in which the show's star, Kiefer Sutherland, urged viewers to keep in mind that the show's villains are not representative of all Muslims.

In a written statement issued late Wednesday night, the network said it has not singled out any ethnic or religious group for blame in creating its characters.

"24 is a heightened drama about anti-terrorism," the statement read. "After five seasons, the audience clearly understands this, and realizes that any individual, family, or group (ethnic or otherwise) that engages in violence is not meant to be typical.

Here's a little truth for you: Most Muslims aren't terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslim.

Until the Muslims of the world try to take care of their brothers who are causing a lot of pain and suffering (to people of their own religion I might add)...these squeals of protest sound pretty hollow...especially from where I'm sitting.

'Extraordinary heroism' of helicopter rescue bid
By Tim Hall
Last Updated: 1:38am GMT 18/01/2007
Four Royal Marines flew into a battle zone clinging to the outside of helicopter gunships in a bid to rescue a fallen comrade, the Ministry of Defence has revealed.

Unwilling to leave behind one of their number following a retreat, the commandos strapped themselves to the small stabiliser wings of two Apache helicopters and returned into the midst of a fierce gunfight with the Taliban in southern Afghanistan.

Details of the unprecedented rescue attempt were revealed as the MoD pieced together the final hours of fallen hero L/Cpl Matthew Ford.

L/Cpl Ford, 30, of 45 Commando Royal Marines, took part in a 200-soldier assault on a Taliban fort in Helmand province.

Following an intense gun and mortar battle, the commandos were forced back. When they realised L/Cpl Ford was missing, four soldiers volunteered to return.

Three Apaches were available for the mission, but the 200mph helicopters have no room inside for passengers. The soldiers made the snap decision to travel on the outside of two of the armour-plated aircraft, with a third helicopter providing covering fire.

The men flew right back into the gun battle, landing both inside and outside the enemy fort in the search for L/Cpl Ford.

They eventually found and retrieved the body of the section leader who had been killed by enemy fire.

The unnamed soldiers won high praise for the rescue attempt and for managing to return L/Cpl Ford’s body to base.

L/Col Rory Bruce, a UK Task Force spokesman, said the heroic mission had been a “leap into the unknown”.

For the rest of the story please click HERE

This has been done a couple of time by US Army Apaches, at least once the pilot who participated was in trouble until the ground unit came to his defence. By the way the title of the post came from the name we in the Apache community give to personnel extraction by riding on the outside of the aircraft...there's some "inside baseball" for you. :)

Good for the Brits..."NEVER LEAVE A MAN BEHIND."

It Pays To Be Connected...

And apparently a whiney little bitch...

This update to the USAF Academy Cadet sending an e-mail requesting a ride in a F-15 story as previously seen on Dude, Where's the Beach?

An Update to the Air Force Academy Cadet F-15E Incentive Ride Request

Last month I shared with you an email sent from a Major to an Air Force Academy Cadet. The Cadet was cluelessly asking for an incentive ride from the Major's Fighter Squadron, and the Major sent, what most of us felt, was an appropriate response to such a bone-headed request.

According to Tumbleweed, the only guest blogger on this site and the friend who forwarded me the email, something happened to the Major involved.

"I heard from a fairly reliable source that Maj T***** from the 333rd FS did
indeed get in some hot water for an unprofessional response to Cadet
S***** IV. The Commandant of Cadets at USAFA got wind of this incident
and placed a call to the wing commander out at Seymour-Johnson. The ball
rolled downhill and the major got in trouble. The highlight of this fiasco
is that the cadet is getting his F-15E ride.

Amazing what some whining can do huh? Now here's another question. Just
what kind of ride is the cadet going to be getting? Are they gonna put him
through the wringer? Or will it be a straight and level sleep inducer?"

Reading Lists

The folks at Castle Argghhh! found the web-page featuring the National Defense University Professional Military Reading List.

GO check it out if you are looking for some reading recommendations, that include Sun Tzu, Clausewitz, Douhet and all of the others you might expect...but there are some that you might like.

For those who don't want to read another book about the Civil War or some dead guys views on the essence of combat here's my reading list...


A fictional account of a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War, this book is both interesting and enlightening (especially about the cult of the Warrant Officer Aviator) all at the same time.

There are many worthwhile books one can read about the airwar over North Vietnam, but this is the first one I ever read (it was loaned to me by the Professor of Military Science USAF ROTC at Baylor University, when I thought I was going to be a fighter pilot). The story has some interesting parallels especially concerning ROE. Really worth your while...and it's back in print!

Another fiction book, this time detailing the life of a pilot on a modern aircraft carrier. I found this book to be very funny and entertaining. An additional bonus is, I don't think I have ever read a more accurate description of an oxygen thieving officer than I have in this book. The author has a knack for describing characters that one sees in the military all the time...but most stories about the military never describe. Good stuff.

A book detailing the conflict between the President of the United States and the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the beginning stages of the Vietnam War. Interesting in its discussion of the duties of a soldier(especially a senior ranking officer) and the options he has in regards to carrying out a policy that he believes is flawed or unsound.

Buried in a Science Fiction novel are concepts of leadership and soldiering that everyone in the military need to grasp. I remember reading that this book was once required reading at the Naval Acadamy...I doubt that it still is. If all you know about this is the movie, then you need to put that aside and read this book.

You may not learn as much about the "Art of War" by reading my list but you will learn about the people who fight them.

Goooogle...The Terrorist CIA

Anyone with any imagination at all could see this one coming a mile away...

From the UK Telegraph...

Terrorists attacking British bases in Basra are using aerial footage displayed by the Google Earth internet tool to pinpoint their attacks, say Army intelligence sources.

Documents seized during raids on the homes of insurgents last week uncovered print-outs from photographs taken from Google.

The satellite photographs show in detail the buildings inside the bases and vulnerable areas such as tented accommodation, lavatory blocks and where lightly armoured Land Rovers are parked.

Written on the back of one set of photographs taken of the Shatt al Arab Hotel, headquarters for the 1,000 men of the Staffordshire Regiment battle group, officers found the camp's precise longitude and latitude.

In the case of wars, Cold and otherwise a free and open society is sometimes a double edged sword. I wonder what if anything Google will do about this...

USAF NCO Poses Nude for a "Men's Magazine"

A few words sprung to mind when I read about this; "prejudicial to good order and discipline".

Naked Aggression: AF Investigates Air(wo)man's Playboy Spread
They say her actions fail to demonstrate the integrity the Air Force expects from its members.

She says she's been fighting for other people's freedoms, now she's just exercising her own.

It is amazing to me, how anyone who has served in the military for long enough to become an NCO can't understand that it's not OK for you to pose nude in a magazine. I tend to believe she wanted out of the Air Force and she thinks this is her ticket to getting some money and a new career. Good luck with that one...

Some people might think the things expressed in the video are corny or trite.

The cynic would say that only a fool would believe this stuff and we're idiots for buying into the Army's BS. Some might HAVE said that the only reason anyone joins the Army is for the money or a way to get out of their bad situation.

Well, I can say that for this Soldier, if you stay in the Army for any length of time at all...you HAVE to believe what is in here. We're not here for the MONEY, and there certainly is no GLORY...so what is it? Watch and learn...

And the Problem Is?

This from the NY Post

January 9, 2007 -- MISS USA Tara Conner's hormones seemed to have been on permanent overdrive since she won the coveted crown last year. Before Conner went into rehab for drugs and alcohol last month, rumors of her dalliances with Stereo owner Mike Satsky, Travis Barker and others hit the papers - and now come tales from the set of a New York Dog magazine shoot of her horny ways. Conner was supposed to grace the February cover and did a photo shoot. A spy said, "Tara seemed to be suffering from severe attention-deficit disorder and was ridiculously flirtatious with the [male] photo assistants."

I have a solution for ALL her problems.

Bring her HERE!

Yeah, that's right Iraq. Why on the FOB she can dry out (there are after all no drugs or booze here...at least legally) and believe me after a few weeks that horniness will get worked right out of her...just trying to be helpful.

Outside Its Cold...

...misty and it's raining. We've got each other, and we're all complaining. (With apologies to Rod Stewart)

It's all raining and nasty off and on around here lately. And when that happens the roads on the FOB take on a quality not unlike a melting Wendy's Frosty. Along with that there's the mud that clings with a tenaciousness not unlike that of the limestone clay based soil back in Texas. Of course we're all bitching now about the cold and rain and a few months from now we'll be bitching about how hot it is...again.

To most folks back home, the weather is something that slows down their commute, ruins their golf game, picnic or barbecue. To the soldier the weather is our environment, it's part of our battle plan, it's my workspace and until I joined the Army I was never so aware of the weather as I became. And then I went to flight school and became a semi-weather expert. The weather can complicate or help things...sometimes even both at the same time.

There's an old Army saying that, "If it ain't raining, then you ain't training."
There's an even older saying that, "it's a soldier's right to bitch"...or so I've been told...Oh yeah, and don't forget to wear your 9mm pistol on the outside of your fleece jacket or the CSM will stop you and say, Bad Warrant Officer...and narc you out to Daddy. And I'm not EVEN started bitching yet. :)

Speculation about a major character death has been rampant in the “Battlestar Galactica” world of late. (By the way, don't read further if you don't want to know more about upcoming "Battlestar" plots.")

Rumors abound that character will die in the second half of the Sci Fi drama’s third season, which kicks off Jan. 21. And much of the “who will it be” speculation centers on hotshot pilot Kara “Starbuck” Thrace.

In an exclusive interview, executive producers David Eick and Ron Moore say that a “profound” event involving Starbuck does occur a pivotal Season 3 episode called “Maelstrom” that is scheduled to air March 4. In fact, Moore says it “will be one of the most surprising things that’s happened in the history of the show so far.”

What happens to Thrace “will jump out and grab you,” Moore says.

The World We Live In...

It's interesting the things you find out, sometimes, without even meaning to. I posted a little story about some out of control teenagers in Texas the other day and my traffic increased by ten times. More than likely because I used the title Cheerleaders Gone Wild...without the exclamation point. I posted no pictures, no lurid details of any shenanigans evil or otherwise...I really didn't even add much commentary. My only real interest is that I am from Texas and I went to high school in Texas and I can understand the football culture pretty well because I had seen it first hand. On the other hand there WAS discipline in my high school, and it's sad to see how out of control some places have gotten...for whatever reason.

That being said it is interesting how my traffic increased ten fold just because I had a post hinting at hot cheerleader action. I hadn't imagined that cheerleders were that popular amongst the population at large. Yeah, I knew they were popular in High School, but who knew that many people were searching the internet looking for pictures of cheerleaders in a "condom's to-go store"...also known as the AAFES in my trailer park. For that matter who knew that people searched the internet for pictures of a nude Juliet Huddy...I get hits all the time on that one because I wrote about her and Kiran Chetry HERE.

(I saw Kiran on the TV in the TOC (that's the Tactical Operations Center for you non-military types...the Command Post if you will...the hub of all that is worth knowing, at least that's the way some people feel about it) the other day and she's still smokin' hot...better in my opinion than most of my "Girl Friday's"...sorry ladies it's true...but anyway.)

I would imagine if I had a post hinting at revealing military secrets my traffic wouldn't increase that much, if at all. Because, as we all know, hot half naked teenagers are much more interesting that national security...unless of course we had hot, naked, barely legal cheerleaders holding up top secret documents to cover their naughty bits...then we would have something...a crime...but it would be SOMETHING.

Police Reunion?

Rumors are swirling around about the Police reuniting to perform again.

For those who don't know "The Police" was the band that Sting wrecked when he decided to get all self important and tell us all how he hoped the "Russians loved their children too."

If they do get back together, I am afraid that it will be much like when "Star Wars Episode 1" came out...no matter what is presented, no matter how good it might be (don't get me wrong Jar Jar sucked ass), it will never meet the fans expectations. SO it's probably best if they just leave us with our memories of Synchronicity and shuffle off to the rock-star retirement home...or wherever it is that people who actually know how to play music have gone lately.

Cheerleaders Gone Wild

WTF?!?...And all this time I thought it was the football players who got away with murder.

Story from HERE

By Gretel C. Kovach and Arian Campo-Flores
Updated: 4:37 p.m. ET Jan. 2, 2007
Jan. 2, 2007 - The pictures posted on MySpace.com looked like the latest installment of "Girls Gone Wild." In them, cheerleaders from McKinney North High School in Texas exhibited all variety of bawdy behavior. One shot showed a bikini-clad girl sharing a bottle of booze with a friend. Another featured a cheerleader and several other girls in risqué poses offering glimpses of their panties. But the most infamous photo of all was taken in a Condoms To Go store. Five smiling cheerleaders dressed in uniform posed with large candles shaped like penises. At least one of them appeared to be simulating fellatio. "It would be an overstatement to describe any of the photographs as pornographic, but it would be an understatement to describe them as harmless high jinks," wrote Harold Jones, a lawyer hired by the school district to investigate the incident. "Quite frankly, I personally found it 'creepy'."

A de Tocqueville Quote...

The famous observer of American life, de Tocqueville wrote this in 1835 about the press...

The journalists of the United States are generally in a very humble position, with a scanty education and a vulgar turn of mind...the characteristics of the American journalist consist in an open and coarse appeal to the passions of the readers; he abandons principles to assail the characters of individuals, to track them in private life and disclose all their weaknesses and vices. Nothing could be more deplorable...

It seems the more things change the more they stay the same.




This is from "Dude,Where's the Beach"

When Air Force Academy Cadets Screw Up....

It's all of our jobs to make sure their mistakes are amplified across the internet. I've seen some pretty stupid letters come from Academy Cadets who think they are already God's gift to the Air Force, and the best of the letters usually get spread around the Air Force global email network just to remind us all as to who the next leaders are.

The following letter isn't the best one I've seen, but it is a good example. The BEST was when a Cadet emailed a worthless gripe letter directly to the Secretary of the Air Force, James Roche, back in 2001. I think almost every member of the Air Force got to respond to that one.

This one is titled "Cadet request for F-15 ride"

Lt. Smith,
I am a cadet at the Air Force Academy trying to arrange a flight with the 333rd Fighter Wing between 21 December and 5 January. I have my Secret Clearance and Physiological Training Card and can coordinate any AOC approval or necessary medical clearance (Form 1042). My presence does not impose any limitations on the mission; I'm just along for the ride.

Any further guidance or authorization you can provide on this matter is much appreciated. Email is the best way to contact me (########), but my cell phone number is #######.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Very Respectfully,
C3C George R. ####### IV
United States Air Force Academy

Now, the best part of letters like these are the responses. Here is the direct response from a Major to this Cadet. It's priceless.

From: Maj T#####
Sent: Tuesday, December 12, 2006 6:09 PM
To: S####### George R IV
Cc: ...
Subject: RE: Cadet request for F-15 ride

You've got some brass balls on you, cadet fourth class George S#### HIV (seriously...is that your real name, lose that 'IV' crap, it just sounds stupid). Let's break down your message and maybe we can educate you on a thing or two.

"I'm a cadet at the Air Force Academy."

This message should be over right here. Period dot. Cadets don't troll for rides, they EARN them through the proper channels just like everybody else. We've got a long list of maintainers who have earned awards through this wing to get incentive rides. These guys bust their asses in the freezing cold and blistering heat and only the lucky few get the privilege of having a ride. Name me three things you think you've done to 'earn' a Strike Eagle ride. Seriously. And by the way, I've read about all the 'hard work' here - http://www.########.blogspot.com/.

And I quote "The learning curve was very steep this past year as I learned about military culture and doctrine in a pretty stressful environment." Brother, you have no idea what a stressful environment is.

"trying to arrange a flight with the 333rd Fighter Wing"

Sweet mother of pearl, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. We are the 333rd Fighter Squadron, and we are a division of the 4th Fighter Wing. If you want to snivel a ride from us, you ought to at least get your facts straight. This is the foreshadowing of your ignorance, let's continue....

"I have my Secret Clearance"

Your secret clearance doesn't mean f*** all to us. You think we're going to take you up on a tactical sortie? You think we're going to let you sit in on classified briefings? You think we're going to hang out and talk tactics with you? YGBFSM...

TO read the rest go HERE!

In the states we get people wanting to get Apache rides all the time but the odd thing about Iraq is...no one really wants to go for a ride with us over here...HMMMMM!

I want my F-15 ride!

Longoria denies Parker bachelor party
From United Press International
January 02, 2007 5:58 PM EST
LOS ANGELES, Jan 2, 2007 (UPI via COMTEX) -- A friend of U.S. actress Eva Longoria has claimed that the "Desperate Housewives" star is denying her fiancé, NBA star Tony Parker, a bachelor party.

The unidentified friend of Longoria confided to In Touch Weekly that the 31-year-old actress has forbid the San Antonio Spurs star the chance to enjoy a bachelor party before their upcoming wedding.

"Eva thinks letting men have bachelor parties is just asking for trouble," the friend claimed.

The celebrity couple revealed their engagement on Nov. 30, 2006, prompting friends and teammates of the 24-year-old basketball player to begin plans for an extravagant bachelor party.

Clark University Lacrosse Team Supports the Troops

I found this during my INTERNET travels...

WORCESTER, MASS. The Clark University men’s lacrosse team has linked up with Americans Supporting Americans (ASA) to provide aid to United States troops in Iraq. The Cougars, who foster a unit in Bravo Company, 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division out of Fort Hood, Texas, are collecting goods such as food, clothes, magazines and health care items, to mail to Fort Anaconda this holiday season.
Evan Davis, Clark’s fifth-year head coach, learned about the program from a lacrosse convention in Baltimore, Md. “I’m excited about having the opportunity to give back to our troops,” said Davis. “A lot of the men and women in Iraq are the same age as some of the players on our team. They’re not going to be home for the holidays, and we just wanted to do something to make their days a little bit easier.”

According to Davis, the response from his players has been overwhelming. He hopes that his team’s efforts will make for a better day in the life of a soldier, but also that the two groups can form a bond unlike any other. That relationship has already begun to take form with the Cougars assuming the 135-soldier, 1st Cavalry Division motto, “Cav’s got your back.” The 2007 team’s slogan, “Cougars got your back,” is in support of each other and their adopted battalion.

Well, even though I'm not in B 3-8 CAV, I am on the "First Team" and we do have your back. Best of luck to the Cougars!

By the way, I know it's the sports page but 1st Cavalry Division has about 20,000 soldiers not the 135 quoted in the second paragraph...I'm pretty sure they meant B Company 3-8, 1st CAV has 135 soldiers...OK, I'm done picking nits.

Best Saturday Morning Show EVER

Banana Splits suck ass...this is the show that I wanted to see every week. Jonny Quest makes Snorky and company look like hammered dog shit.

It still baffles the crap out of me, why, when they brought Jonny back in the 80's they had to screw it up.

I still have a "Race Bannon" nametag for when I go to the "O" Club.

Sorry about the Brazilian version...that's all I could find at You Tube.

Just When You Thought Things Couldn't Get More F'd Up...

Via Ace of Spades

I hate to admit watching this show...if I wasn't getting knocked silly playing Pop Warner football or something on Saturdays. If there is really a HELL, Saddam is curently watching a non-stop loop of this show right now.

"...it's Happy New Year, idiot."

"Sorry for my English, which stinks."

A virtual prize to the person who tells me what movie that quote is from. Hint: Look at that S Car go!

I very special start to the new year...sorry I wasn't there to give you that smooch at midnight ladies...I was flying last night at midnight, which was a unique experience to say the least. My team celebrated the midnight hour by launching a couple of flares into the chilly night air. I hope everyone had a great time at their respective parties around the world.
