Many of my readers are aware of my wrath toward cowards who quiver in the face of threats made to people who choose to retain their free speech in the face of Islamism arrogance. Geert Wilders is a hero in this department, the UK gov’t is full of cowards.

Geert has made a documentary named, ‘Fitna’, which uses the parts of the Koran which the jihadis exploit for political manipulation to warn the west about what is vital to our survival. For this, he is being prosecuted by the Dutch government, thanks to the Muslims who’ve invaded their country and silenced the good Muslim population.

The UK invited Geert to speak at their showing of this documentay, but a couple of ministries (how ironic, stop using the name ‘Ministry’. You are not ministers!) disinvited him because HE is considered a bigger threat to their peace than the jihadis!

So. What to do? I have the documentary for you to watch here. Let them come after me, too. I am not afraid. Ya see, we have this little thing called the 2nd Amendment in America, and I know how to use it to my benefit and protection. I consider a threat from any jihadi to my person and livelihood to be a reasonable enough threat to do my duty for my country. Don’t be afraid. Tell me your name and address. Unless, of course, you are cowards like the rest of the jihadis and the UK government…

To watch this video, please follow this link to view Fitna. You may also read The speech Geert Wilders would have given had the UK not been filled with cowards and dhimmis.

BTW, jihadis are those who give Muslims a bad name and make life harder for them. This in no way has anything to do with the good Muslims I know and the good Muslims I do not know. Let’s just make this perfectly clear. After 9/11/01, my door and heart was open to any Muslim woman who felt they needed refuge. So don’t even go down that road. Jihadis are the racists here, not the American people. It sure would be nice, however, if more American Muslims would stand up against the jihadis.

There are a few that I know of who do a great job of standing up and against the jihadis. Here are their links: The Spirit Of Man, Muslims Against Sharia and American Islamic Forum for Democracy. Check them out and decide for yourself if they are speaking out loudly enough for you. Frankly, I don’t believe they are receiving the attention they deserve. There are also many more, but I do not have their links. Thank you, and have a nice day.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

By Master Sergeant Stan Parker
Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa

NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 9, 2008 — To many, Kenya invokes thoughts of a rich culture, friendly people, and the wonders of a safari. Few people realize that Kenya is also home to a center whose mission is to train people worldwide in the process of safe de-mining in affected countries.

The International Mine Action Training Center (IMATC), which opened in the outskirts on Nairobi in February, 2005, is a partnership between the British and Kenyan armed forces and includes personnel from the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa. IMATC aims to alleviate suffering caused by landmines and to provide training on safe demining techniques. Landmines are a daily threat in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Iraq, Somalia, and dozens of other countries around the world.

“Mine clearance is important throughout the world. My job is to train Kenyans and personnel from other countries how to effectively handle their landmine problems. We teach our students how to probe safely and, once they find a mine, be able to take care of it,” said U.S. Navy Senior Chief Michael Brown, Lead Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Instructor.

Brown explained that the main focus of IMATC is “to train Kenyans to perform de-mining and EOD missions throughout the Horn of Africa.”

According to Clear Path International, the world has roughly 110 million landmines spread among as many as 80 countries. More than 140 million people live in exposed to the dangers of landmines or unexploded ordnance. Roughly 25,000 people are killed or injured by mines each year. Two out of every three victims being civilians and one in every four being children. The IMATC faculty and students are working to mitigate this hazard.

Kenyan Army Sergeant Douglas Mwangi, EOD and Demining Instructor, says the key to the center’s success is the capability to work in an international organization. “One of the challenges is the language, because here we teach in English, and when we have some of the African countries we try to instruct a little in Swahili,” he said. “This forces those who don’t understand English to bring their own interpreter. That is very challenging to us because within the scope of the lesson it may take wrong because of the interpretation.”

Colin Hill is a former U.K. military EOD officer. Now he’s an IMATC EOD instructor and Small Arms and Light Weapons Counter Proliferation Program Manager. He explained that UN reports validate the success of the center, which is based on the number of square meters cleared. Many countries have enormous stockpiles which are stored poorly in heavily populated areas, leading to a high risk of catastrophic accidents. To counter this risk, the center has branched out by adding a disaster management cell and small arms and light weapons wing.

“In the small arms light weapons area, there is a lot of naivety and misunderstanding. Lack of control is a key issue. That is why we are working with the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency, to look at stockpile security and management,” said Hill. By diversifying, the center is eligible to receive non-governmental organizational support from agencies such as Humanitarian Mine Action.

“We are providing a capability here at IMATC with mine and UXO detection dogs,” said Philip James, IMATC Mines Awareness program manager and former UK military Bomb Disposal Operator. “Dogs have been a proven asset in clearance operations. We are also providing training courses for both demining and EOD, to service the Humanitarian Mine Action NGOs.”

Students come to the center to grow professionally in a unique environment. IMATC student Nico Bosman explained that whether the student is a former military member or an average citizen wanting to make a difference he is leaving the center with an excellent knowledge base. “I can recommend the course for the experienced and the inexperienced. I think the standard of the course is excellent and the knowledge we gain is very helpful. It will be a career highlight for me,” Bosman said.

I had written a whole post about the disconnect between London’s Mayor Livingston and Mayor Boris Johnson. The bottom line? Newly elected CONSERVATIVE Mayor Johnson told chavez to take a hike, after defeating LIBERAL Livingstone was accepting kickbacks to keep a PR office open in London and an office in Venezuela. The article can be found at the Opinion Journal section of the Wall Street Journal titled, “No Mas.” He also has a few words, as do I, for some of our representatives in Massachusetts.

Side note: If we are so hated the world over, why do Conservatives seem to keep winning? Hmm??? 😉

Why the summary? Because the article I wrote was a little lengthy, and someone come and moved my CPU in the middle of my work. My CPU is rather sensitive, and it became ‘unplugged’. Did I lose everything I was on at that time? YES!!! Ugh! (I forgive that person. It’s only a story.)

My brother, while he may be joking, keeps telling me (EVERY TIME he sees me on the computer) to stop blogging. I’ve been called names that Webster has never even thought of before! No, I’m not going to repeat them. lol.

I spend most of my days answering emails and researching information that I have received from those emails. See, I’m not like the NY Times. I actually care about my credibility! I don’t want to put something out there that is just a rumor or a straight out lie. No, I do not get sent lies on purpose. It’s just that most people, including myself, can be fooled. When that happens, I will let you know ASAP!

I wish I had some news for you, but I’ve just been too busy, I noticed there were two car bomb attempts over in the UK, and I am floored by what the PM Brown did in response. No one is allowed to use the word, “Muslim”? WTH? That will cause them to stop…my butt! Do these people, do any people, realize that THEY have declared WAR on us? Anyone who does not agree with Sharia Law or Mohammad, you die. Even if you, apparently.

They blew up the mosque again, what was left of it. All of these were inside jobs. They have found 8 people in England ARE police officers, because they cannot fire them for comporting with the enemy. This PC crap has got to go!

Well, everyone already knew about this. That’s why I said I didn’t have any news. Everyone be good to your neighbor today and always. Everyone turn in the enemies of our country (whichever one is yours) for as long as it takes. We are in this together, whether you like it or not. There are only two outcomes. Victory or Defeat. Try living with that as our papers and congress are ready to throw in the towel…

Michael Yon used to be in the service, now he is out reporting the facts about what is really happening in Iraq and Afghanistan. Right now he is in Iraq with the British Queen’s Royal Lancers. He has an amazing story to tell. Anyone who remembers the Brits who were kidnapped by Iran will not recognize these people. Nor will you recognize them by the stories the dinosaur media has giving us due to the fact that they have never actually gone to find the truth. They rely on terrorists or people who don’t actually know the truth. Anyway, here is the link. Have a nice day.

The Aghanistan National Army (ANA) are busy training and working towards the day when they may be able to defend Afghanistan on their own. It seems to be going well. The 205th Regional Security Assistance Command are quite capable and are making sure of this. They are making sure that the ANA has the supplies they need and that the British are teaching them the American ways to run an Army. I like this. If you would like to read the whole story, you will find it here. Have a great day, and to those of you who are serving, “THANK YOU, and God bless you!”
