Droning On – Bill O’Reilly

Posted by Larry Barnes on April 27, 2013

Droning On – Bill O'Reilly.

Leftards being creatures of habit with a limited scope of resources, I anticipate they will respond to Bill O’Reilly’s recent opinion piece with accusations about the “terror” bombing of Dresden. Well, here is my pre-response:

S.T.F.U. Evil has many tools and a lie is a handle that fits each one. You live in your world, with your tools and handles. You are a tool and you know where the handle goes, now stick it!

A 1953 United States Air Force report defended the operation as the justified bombing of a military and industrial target, which was a major rail transportation and communication center, housing 110 factories and

50,000 workers in support of the German war effort. Dresden was Germany’s seventh-largest city and, according to the RAF at the time, the largest remaining unbombed built-up area. An official 1942 guide to the city described it as “one of the foremost industrial locations of the Reich” and in 1944, the German Army High Command’s Weapons Office listed 127 medium-to-large factories and workshops that were supplying the army with materiel.

Colonel Harold E. Cook, a US POW held in the Friedrichstadt marshaling yard the night before the attacks, later said that “I saw with my own eyes that Dresden was an armed camp: thousands of German troops, tanks and artillery and miles of freight cars loaded with supplies supporting and transporting German logistics towards the east to meet the Russians.”

On 16 February, 1945, the German Propaganda Ministry issued a press release that stated that Dresden had no war industries; it was a city of culture. And now the leftards continue that tradition because they need to get a handle on their tolls of destruction and desolation.

Having been given a paraphrased version of Churchill’s memo by Bottomley, on 29 March, Air Chief Marshal Arthur Harris wrote to the Air Ministry: I … assume that the view under consideration is something like this: no doubt in the past we were justified in attacking German cities. But to do so was always repugnant and now that the Germans are beaten anyway we can properly abstain from proceeding with these attacks. This is a doctrine to which I could never subscribe. Attacks on cities like any other act of war are intolerable unless they are strategically justified. But they are strategically justified in so far as they tend to shorten the war and preserve the lives of Allied soldiers. To my mind we have absolutely no right to give them up unless it is certain that they will not have this effect. I do not personally regard the whole of the remaining cities of Germany as worth the bones of one British Grenadier.

The feeling, such as there is, over Dresden, could be easily explained by any psychiatrist. It is connected with German bands and Dresden shepherdesses. Actually Dresden was a mass of munitions works, an intact government center, and a key transportation point to the East. It is now none of these things.

Neo-Fascism & China’s Future
By Joe Katzman on August 27, 2004 4:25 AM

In my Normblog interview, I was asked about threats to the future peace and stability of the world. Islamofascism was #1, of course, but I also spent a bit of time explaining my worries about one possible future for China: a future of state capitalism under dictatorial control, a strong need for external resources to fuel that economy, carefully fostered xenophobia, a legacy of belief in the racial superiority of Chinese peoples, a major demographic problem in an excess of young males, and the meme that China is being cheated of its rightful place in the world. Germany’s history in the 20th century teaches us what this combination portends.

Fascism has found adherents in all countries. Its essentially vague and emotional nature facilitates the development of unique national varieties, whose leaders often deny indignantly that they are fascists at all. In its dictatorial methods and in its use of brutal intimidation of the opposition by the militia and the secret police, fascism does not greatly distinguish itself from other despotic and totalitarian regimes. There are particular similarities with the Communist regime in the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin. However, unlike Communism, fascism abhors the idea of a classless society and sees desirable order only in a state in which each class has its distinct place and function. Representation by classes (i.e., capital, labor, farmers, and professionals) is substituted for representation by parties, and the corporative state is a part of fascist dogma.

Fascism, especially in its early stages, is obliged to be antitheoretical and frankly opportunistic in order to appeal to many diverse groups. Nevertheless, a few key concepts are basic to it. First and most important is the glorification of the state and the total subordination of the individual to it. The state is defined as an organic whole into which individuals must be absorbed for their own and the state’s benefit. This “total state” is absolute in its methods and unlimited by law in its control and direction of its citizens.

A second ruling concept of fascism is embodied in the theory of social Darwinism. The doctrine of survival of the fittest and the necessity of struggle for life is applied by fascists to the life of a nation-state. Peaceful, complacent nations are seen as doomed to fall before more dynamic ones, making struggle and aggressive militarism a leading characteristic of the fascist state. Imperialism is the logical outcome of this dogma.

Another element of fascism is its elitism. Salvation from rule by the mob and the destruction of the existing social order can be effected only by an authoritarian leader who embodies the highest ideals of the nation.

This is the Chinese response to the report:

I know that “essentially vague and emotional nature” is the picture evoked by the CCTV response.

Special Forces SOCOM Competion

Special Forces SOCOM Competion

Fuerzas Commando 2009 was a military skills competition between some of the top special forces teams in the western hemisphere. The event was hosted by Brazil from June 17 24, 2009. Security forces from 21 countries took part part in the challenging contest, which promoted military-to-military relationships, increased interoperability and improved regional security.

The Brazilian military hosted Fuerzas Comando 2009 with Special Operations Command South serving as the lead U.S. military organization for coordination of the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM)-sponsored exercise.

More than 300 military, law enforcement and civilian personnel from the 22 participating nations (see list below) took part at the peak of the exercise. About 150 U.S. service members from all the services were involved.

Fuerzas Comando 2009 tested the participants physical and psychological endurance through many obstacles both on land and in water. It included two parts: a multinational special operations skills competition and a senior leader seminar (see below).

Multinational competitions like this build the required capacity to collectively confront direct threats. Many of todays transnational threats, such as kidnappings, international gangs, terrorism, drug trafficking and illicit activities, cannot be defeated by traditional military means alone. Defeating these threats require common goals and cooperation with our regional partners.

The Fuerzas Comando exercise series is part of a longstanding set of multinational and bi-lateral exercises that foster regional relations and cooperation against trans-national threats, maintain partnerships and alliances and promote cooperative security arrangements.

Multinational Special Operations Skills Competition:

The skills competition was designed to improve multinational regional cooperation, enhance mutual trust and confidence, and advance the training, readiness and interoperability of participating special operations forces in tactics, techniques, and procedures. The skills competition had two events:

Assault team competition

A physical fitness test; a confidence course; close-quarters combat; a rucksack march; water event; and an obstacle course.

Sniper team competition

The sniper team competition will consist of five events: a physical fitness test; marksmanship; shoot and move; range estimation; and stalk and shoot events.

Each participating nation sent a judge, a five-person Special Operations assault team and a two-man sniper team to compete in challenging tests and evaluations of their skills in special operations tactics, techniques and procedures used in counter-terrorist operations.

Senior Leader Seminar:

The senior leader seminar, hosted by the Brazilian military, helped to develop, refine and improve political and military relations and multinational cooperation in fighting terrorism and other transnational threats. Participants included a commander and a senior level representative from each nation involved in making counter-terrorism decisions and policy making. The seminar took place in Goinia June 23 25.

Nations Participating:

Special operations military and police forces from Argentina, Barbados, Belize, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Trinidad & Tobago, the United States, and Uruguay will participate in the exercise

Background:

This was the sixth consecutive year Fuerzas Comando has taken place in SOUTHCOMs area of focus.

Special Ops Around the World

Posted by Larry Barnes on February 11, 2009

By Army Staff Sgt. Michael J. Carden
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Feb. 11, 2009 – A panel of experts provided insights on persistent conflicts throughout the world to more than 300 participants in the 20th Annual Special Operations/Low-Intensity Conflict symposium here yesterday.

Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Lawrence P. Farrell Jr., president and chief executive officer of the National Defense Industrial Association, said the enemies of America and its ideals show no signs of changing their minds.

“As I read the papers from around the world, it seems to me that those who would do violence to our republic and other allied democracies … have not lessened in their intensity and their passion,” Farrell said. “It looks like it’s going to be a long, hard fight.”

Although Iraq and Afghanistan dominate the headlines, much of the “fight” Farrell referred to is occurring elsewhere. About 55,000 military members of U.S. Special Operations Command are spread out in more than 60 countries, assisting local governments, providing humanitarian aid and training soldiers and police, Navy Adm. Eric Olson, commander of Special Operations Command, said.

“[Special operations forces are] building long-term relationships in every country in every region in the world, and we need them there for a long time,” Olson said. “Special operations forces, especially Army special operations, does this better than anyone.”

During yesterday’s symposium, panelists representing special operations forces shared their experiences and expertise.

In the Middle East, illiteracy among women, population growth and poverty make this part of the world very challenging and somewhat unstable, Army Lt. Col. Chuck Miller Jr., an operations officer for Special Operations Command Central, said. These and other factors such as narcotics smuggling and economic instability raise the possibility that this region will be problematic for some time, he added.

Miller described Pakistan, not Iraq or Afghanistan, as the world’s most dangerous place. It’s known as an army with a country, he said, because of the weakness of its central government, and it has nuclear capabilities, Miller said.

“[Pakistan] represents more than just resupply routes for the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “As the only Islamic nuclear power, Pakistan represents one of the world’s most complex environments with which the Western world must deal.”

Poverty and a poor economy in Pakistan pre-date the current global economic crisis, Miller said. Large, ungoverned areas serve as safe havens for militant groups to train and operate along the country’s border with Afghanistan, operating under an umbrella of tribal networks that place value on family and other relationships over anything else.

“They don’t recognize the legitimacy and right of the central government,” Miller said.

Despite the growing insurgency inside its borders, Pakistan continues to view India as its No. 1 threat, and the Pakistani army remains focused on a possible conventional conflict with its neighbor, he said.

The U.S. concern in Pakistan is its border with Afghanistan, Miller said, and special operations forces are using the counterinsurgency approach to train and equip Pakistan’s army.

“Pakistan is working closely with American military and government partners,” Miller said. “An enduring approach, paced out over time [and] measured in patience, is the most appropriate way to engage our partners there.”

Special operators also have been practicing an enduring approach in Asia and the Pacific. Although large conventional forces, nuclear capabilities and economic influence loom with China and North Korea, “the other Operation Enduring Freedom” has been taking place in the southern Philippine Islands for the past seven years, Army Lt. Col. Brian Petit, commander of 2nd Battalion, 1st Special Forces Group, said.

Islamic and communist insurgencies and ungoverned regions threaten the stability of the island nation, Petit said.

“We don’t see it in the headlines, but this is a very real and lethal fight in the southern Philippines,” he said. “We don’t have American soldiers on the front pages, and we don’t have casualty lists, but the Filipinos do. They are engaged in a very lethal struggle.”

Special Forces troops are providing medical support and military training to their Filipino allies. The U.S. mission there is to build capacity of government forces to better serve and protect their populace, Petit explained.

“With seven years of persistent engagements,” he said, “we have a tremendous partnership with the Filipinos, and their capacity and professionalism is absolutely better as a result of our soft mission down there.”

In Central and South America, “huge steps” have been made with the U.S.-Brazil partnership, as well as in the ongoing relationships with Argentina, Chile and Paraguay, Navy Cmdr. Victor Hyder, an operations officer in Special Operations Command South, said.

Special operators are working to disrupt people, arms and narcotics trafficking, money laundering, and corruption among the police and governments. Paraguay, in particular, has no border security, and although no terrorism threats have been identified, all of these problems are factors that support terrorism, Hyder said.

“There is a true reason for special operation forces in Paraguay,” he said. “All of the networks that a terrorist organization could use are in place in the region.”

But since there is no actual terrorism in Paraguay, Special Forces are working to build the nation’s capacity, as they are doing in Pakistan and the Philippines, and not focusing on combat operations to prevent future terrorism.

“We’re building capacity to help them deal with these problems and to prevent the region from becoming a terrorist threat to the United States,” Hyder said. Much like in the Philippines, “taking the soft approach” and stopping terrorism before it can occur is the most important reason for special operations in Paraguay, he added.

Suspected Pirates Apprehended in the Gulf of Aden.

Posted by Larry Barnes on February 11, 2009

From Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command/5th Fleet Public Affairs

The crew of the guided-missile cruiser USS Vella Gulf (CG 72) apprehended seven suspected pirates in the Gulf of Aden Feb. 11 after responding to a distress call from a nearby merchant vessel.

The event marks the first time CTF-151 has apprehended suspected pirates.

At approximately 3:00 p.m. this afternoon, the Marshall Islands-flagged Motor Vessel Polaris sent a distress call to all ships in the area reporting that a small skiff containing seven suspected pirates had attempted a forcible boarding of their vessel using a ladder. Polaris crewmembers removed the ladder before pirates could come aboard.

Vella Gulf closed immediately with the M/V Polaris and intercepted a skiff matching the description given by the motor vessel. The skiff contained individuals fitting the physical descriptions given by Polaris crew members. A Vella Gulf visit, board, search and seizure team conducted a consensual boarding and found several weapons.

Apparently the search for the persons responsible has met a dead end. I know al-Qaeda has done a diligent search to determine who in their ranks planned this attack and who financed it. When they bring those responsible to justice the world will rejoice.
