The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.
When feeding Kooks and Anti-Americans
I suggest a potato gun.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

Battle of the Bulge

Today is the 60th anniversary of the German breakout at the Battle of the Bulge. The Germans used the blitzkrieg to roll back the 1st Army and then the weather set in. The 101st Airborne was thrown into the breach to hold the crossroads at Bastogne with no artillery, armor or other fire support, no winter clothing, short of ammo, and short of food. By the 19th a better supplied and desparate enemy surrounded and assaulted them tirelessly but they held that line in the snow. Amid handwringing by his peers, Patton spun his Army 90 degrees and started to move. On the 20th the weather broke for a bit and the immensely powerful entity now known as the United States Air Force resupplied the Airborne and had it's way with the German Army while Patton's Third Army slogged to the north. Despite the freezing days, 16 hour nights, the terrifying artillery, and the hopeless prospects, the Airborne didn't give. On Christmas, when the German Commander offered to accept surrender, the official American answer was one word: "Nuts". Patton moved a quarter of a million men more than 100 winter miles. When Patton got there on the 26th, his troops kicked the s@#t out of the Germans after being on the move for 6 days. No member of the Airborne ever acknowledged needing to be rescued.
There's a reason the appeasers and nitwits want to undermine support for the war. They know that the American military cannot be beaten on the battlefield. The appeasers do not want to see another digit in the "us" column. Americans inflict more casualties than they take, even when on offense. It's that American ambition again. Suck it up and do what must be done. Be better, faster and more lethal than the other guy. Take charge and lead even when outgunned, under-equipped and under-fed. Today is also a good day to remember Todd Beamer and the other men on Flight 93 that stopped the final 9/11 blow from reaching it's target. I don't think there's another country in the world that casually produces such men. They are the exception elsewhere, but they are the norm in Amerika.
