The Vets For Freedom (VFF) have been quite busy, and they have released some news about their observations and activities. It is always informative when I hear from them, and I am only grateful that I have the ability to share this news with you.

VFF Senior Fellow Gabe Ledeen has just returned back from Israel and provided two dispatches from the Israel-Hamas confict (war). The first article is from the New Majority (1/27/09): Sderot, Israel is Iraq Without the Body Armor and the second is in National Review Online (1/30/09): Be Not Afraid.

This next set of articles covers the successful elections in Iraq, quite a change, eh?! This article is in the National Review Online (2/3/09): Sunnis I-Rock the Vote. This next article is not so much an article as it is VFF’s Chairman Pete Hegseth appearance on the Fox News Channel discussing the coverage of this news:

[If there is a problem, you may find this video at Capt. Pete Hegseth on Fox News.]

With Afghanistan now back in the news, VFF is planning to take a trip over there to get some ‘on the ground’ reporting. In the meantime, there are two news pieces that should be brought to your attention. The first one about Sen. Joe Lieberman: Turning the Tide in Afghanistan, Brookings Institute. The second article can be found in the Washington Post, 1/29/2009: The Afghan Challenge. It is a pretty good article, for a change. I guess it’s no longer President George W. Bush’ war? *heh*

You may have noticed that I’m writing this post a might late. This last bit of information has already passed by now, but it is still pertinent. The date of this e-mail is February 5th.

Lastly, this weekend I [Pete Hegseth] will have the honor of accompanying Senator John McCain, Senator Joe Lieberman, and other Congressional/DOD leaders on a trip to Munich, Germany for the 45th Munich Conference on Security Policy.

Vice-President Joe Biden will also be there, along with National Security Advisor James Jones. The future of U.S. and NATO policy in Afghanistan will be tops on the agenda, and I look forward to getting a first-hand look at our new administration’s approach on the world stage.

Move out and draw fire!

Keep turned for more information that the media thinks is too complicated for your little minds or they just have no desire to cover. (Who’s mind is little now? lol) If you would like, you may read their updates at Vets For Freedom anytime you like. They accept donations. I donate monthly, and I’m poor. Do you think you may be able to spare a couple of dollars? All the work they do is only because they have the backing and support of people such as you and me. Thank you, and God bless your families and you.

Last, but certainly not least, please pray for our Armed Forces and Coalition Forces. Also, pray for their families. They are the ones usually hit the hardest, and the rest of the world seems to forget about them.

The wives, the Mothers, the children, the husbands. Pray for them to have the strength to stay together, to endure, to hold their heads up high. Pray for our men and women in the services to be strong, protected from harm, and to have wisdom when it is necessary. Sometimes I even pray that they’re bullet-proof. It works!

Use your own heart-felt words, just don’t forget to include them in your prayers. I know it’s been a while and you may be tired, but they cannot go to sleep whilst protecting our Liberty. It is the very minimal we can, should, do. God bless!

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.

This video is disturbing to most of us who do not believe in sending our children – under the age of 18 – to fight in any war. Sure, sometimes a 17 year old may sneak in, but these children have not yet started puberty. That is the first half of Uncle Jimbo’s vidoe. The second half shows the successful rescue of a kidnapped boy who was held for $100,000 ransom. You tell me, who do you think are the good guys and who are the bad? I cannot even believe that is a relevant question!

Al Qaeda Summer Camp for Kids- Blackfive TV.

Uncle Jimbo also has an awesome collection of videos he put together over at Blackfive’s. He starts off with Vets for Freedom- Kate Norley Back to Iraq, and there are eight videos in total. I especially like the 17 minute one. Well, I liked the one about the puppy too, especially when YankeeMom met her at the DC airport. Thank you to all our Patriot Guards, also!

Oh, I almost forgot. You won’t understand my ire until you watch the video. I know many of you may, but I am now referring to those readers who just happened to come upon this article. The Left/Marxists amongst us have a tendency to believe these ‘people’ can be persuaded with ‘talks’. They also claim they deserve the same rights as any other ‘human being’.

That is why I emplore you to watch this 4:10 minute video. If you still believe these animals can be reasoned with, that they are not monsters, I have only one suggestion for you. YOU go talk to them. If per chance you end up in the way of a shell headed for the nosebridge of the monster you are ‘reasoning’ with, oh well. Too bad, so sad, and good riddance.

Our men and women in the Armed Forces are NOTHING like these monsters, and I demand an apology from every Senator and Congressperson and every idiot who ever made the claim that they are. There is a time and a place for everything. When our men and women are out there fighting for our very lives, then we are supposed to remain united. It is the LEFT who are dividing us, and they fooled you into voting them into office. Great job. NOT. We must stop this.

I did not vote for President-elect Obama but when he takes the oath, he will be my president, too. I will feel the same way. I will treat him with the respect due the office, if for no other reason than it is the office. I can say without fear of being wrong, I will treat him one helluva lot better than the opposition has EVER treated PRESIDENT George W. Bush. If you want to know the difference between a Conservative and a Communist Leftist, there is one for ya.

I say this because I am angry. I angry because we are in a global war which half of America refuses to acknowledge, and some of the half that does seems to be forgetting why we fighting in the first place. That puts my life at risk and that gives me the right speak up about it. Heck, just being an American gives me the right, but I am a Conservative. I don’t like sticking my nose in where it does not belong. Unlike the LEFTIST MARXISTS amongst us…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.

The group of Vets For Freedom is very actively trying to get their message to public so you can know the truth the dinosaur media refuses to tell. They have news reports, actions that you may participate in to help, videos, and a special section for American Patriot Heroes. Today I will share with you one of those Heroes. (The writing below is done by Vets For Freedom.)

Joe Dan “Doc” Worley.

On September 17, 2004, while on patrol with Marines from the 2nd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, in Fallujah, Iraq, an IED exploded into a humvee killing a Marine and an Iraqi Interpreter. Not even 10 days prior, his former platoon had seven Marines killed in action when a vehicle borne IED drove into their patrol. The attrition from the blast was so severe that the platoon, known as Pale Rider Three, would be disbanded and the surviving Marines sent to other platoons in Fox Company.

Immediately reacting to the explosion, Doc Worley went into automatic pilot. No one needed to explain to this Corpsman the importance of his job after an enemy attack. Worley grabbed his aid bag and took off toward the thick smoke, preparing himself for the worst-case scenario of this close quarters explosion.

As Worley sprinted across a bridge, a secondary IED exploded only a few feet away from him, ripping off his left leg instantly. Experiencing mind-numbing pain throughout his entire body, Worley began to assess his own condition, something he had done countless times for others. He put himself through the life saving aid procedures as he had so many other times to others, when there were too many injured for one Corpsman to handle. Worley applied a tourniquet just above his own left knee, an extremely painful procedure that was vital in saving his own life. [Continue reading at the Veterans For Freedom.]

Also read more about Doc Worley’s story here on CBS News.

For more patriots’ stories, please read more at Vets For Freedom: American Patriots. Here is a list of some of them.

American Patriot Profiles are posted frequently. Please check back often for updates. If you know of a patriot you would like to see profiled, please let us know.

These are truly remarkable men and women, and we owe them more than we could ever repay. That is why we must do everything in our power to help by volunteering at the Veterans Administration Hospitals in our area, and we must prevent the wacked out nuts who would rather destroy our country and turn it over to al Qaida than to stand up and fight for their rights themselves. Shameful, but true. We must not fret, however. We must decide to take a stand, and stand. 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.

Vets For Freedom Report

It has been over a month since our Vets have returned home, and they have some true reporting to share with us. They went back to Iraq to seek the truth. They remember what it was like when they left in 2006, and they can tell if there is any REAL change for the better there. You should read what they have to say. The truth is always better than the fiction we are served by people who’ve never stepped on the streets of Iraq.

They have a website, Vets For Freedom.org, you should check everyday, because they are still reporting facts and even some feelings and opinions. They are also requesting that we support Senate Resolution 636. I urge you, if you truly support the Troops, to at least listen to them. Get their side of this issue. After all, it is to them we owe a debt of gratitude we will never be able to repay.

Here are just a few of their reports:

Pete Hegseth: Up and Over the Palm Tree.
David Bellavia: Diyala Surge.
Kate Norley: Back to Iraq Journal Entry #4.
Daniel Bell: Back to Iraq Journal Entry #6.
Erik Swabb: Back to Iraq Journal Entry #3.
Shawn Bryan: Dispatch from Kuwait.
Ben Hayden: Back to Iraq Journal Entry #3.

Whether or not you supported this war, they had no choice. It was their job, and they stood up for us. Will you now stand up for them?

Senator Barack Obama (video) continues to deny the surge has worked, even though most Americans recognize the FACT that it has. The same is believed by vice-presidential candidate Senator Joe Biden. (Video may be viewed at MSNBC.)

This is why Vets For Freedom is making a point of getting everyone in Congress on the record as to whether or not they believe the surge has worked. We deserve to know where our elected officials stand and how they determine foreign policy issues. If they cannot concede to this success, do we really want Sen. Obama to be Commander-in-Chief?

There is a new video that the Vets For Freedom have made. It is a very good one, and all they are doing is asking Congress to support Senate bill 636. They want to make sure our men and women are given the opportunity to win each battleground area, to be supported, to succeed. In essense, they want the Congress not to change their minds halfway through a war that they’ve sent REAL LIVE people into harms way. Never again…here is the link: Success is Relevant, Senator.

If you could please put pressure on our supposed elected officials, here are some suggestions to get you started. Remember, whenever addressing members of the government, BE POLITE no matter how much of an a**hole they are. 😉

Vets for Freedom has launched our “Truth about the Surge” media and grassroots campaign. The campaign is intended to inform the American public, and key lawmakers, about the undeniable success that our troops have achieved as a result of the surge, and the importance of ensuring victory in Iraq, Afghanistan and the overall Global War on Terrorism.

In the coming weeks our objectives are twofold:

Tell your members of Congress to support the surge and our troops by supporting Senate Resolution 636 and creating a similar resolution in the House. We need your help, call your member, write a Letter to the editor and spread the word about the success of the surge and importance of ‘walking the walk’ and showing their support by voting yes for Senate Resolution 636.

Click Here (.pdf) to view a Dear Colleague letter from Senators Graham and Lieberman for SR 636.

Telling your friends and neighbors the importance of the surge and missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. The American people have the right to know that we are and with your help will WIN the war in Iraq. The surge has worked and we need you to help spread the word.

“Truth about the Surge” will only succeed if our members are willing to volunteer their time. But isn’t this the least we can do, with our fellow Soldiers, Marines, Airman, and Sailors still serving overseas? We need you to volunteer to write Letters to the Editor, attend events, make phone calls, call into local radio shows, and exploit targets of opportunity. We will be running TV ads in most of these states as well to further spread the message.

What do you mean, ‘What is Sen. Res. 636’? I did not explain it? D’oh! 😉

Update: Before I give the Senate resolution, let me please implore you to make 10 phone calls. Eight will be to people whom we have a strong sense that we will co-sponsor this bill, and two will be to your own Senators. Here is the toll free number: 1-866-340-9281. Here is what you should ask:

1. Please be a “co–sponsor” of Senate Resolution 636.
2. Please do whatever you can to bring the Resolution to the Senate floor for a vote.
3. Please the courage to vote “yes”–on the record—about the success of the surge.

Every U.S Senator needs to hear from Iraq & Afghanistan veterans, and those who support them, about the importance of praising our troops for all they have accomplished.

Here are the names and numbers of the eight people you should contact:

Susan Collins (R-ME) – 202.224.2523
John Warner (R-VA) – 202.224.2023
Judd Gregg (R-NH) – 202.224.3324
Chuck Hagel (R-NE) – 202.224.4224
Gordon Smith (R-OR) – 202.224.3753
Olympia Snowe (R-ME) – 202.224.5344
Arlen Specter (R-PA) – 202.224.4254
George Voinovich (R-OH) – 202.224.3353

Your 2 Senators. Follow this link for a directory of all U.S. Senators.

Thank you for your help. It is so much appreciated. Now here is the Senate Resolution 636.

Senate Resolution 636:

S.RES.636.

SRES 636 IS

110th CONGRESS
2d Session
S. RES. 636

Recognizing the strategic success of the troop surge in Iraq and expressing gratitude to the members of the United States Armed Forces who made that success possible.

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATESJuly 31, 2008

Mr. LIEBERMAN (for himself, Mr. GRAHAM, Mr. MCCAIN, Mr. ENZI, Mr. MARTINEZ, Mr. BOND, Mr. WICKER, Mr. CORNYN, Mr. CRAPO, Mr. ALLARD, Mr. THUNE, Mr. BARRASSO, and Mr. INHOFE) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Armed Services
————————————————–

RESOLUTION

Recognizing the strategic success of the troop surge in Iraq and expressing gratitude to the members of the United States Armed Forces who made that success possible.

Whereas, by the end of 2006, it had become clear that, despite exceptional efforts and sacrifices on the part of the United States Armed Forces in Iraq, the United States was pursuing a failed strategy in Iraq;

Whereas, by the end of 2006, large-scale sectarian violence was accelerating throughout Iraq, al Qaeda had established significant safe havens there, militias sponsored by the Government of Iran had seized effective control of large swaths of Iraq, and the Government of Iraq was suffering from political paralysis;

Whereas, by the end of 2006, insurgents and death squads were killing more than 3,000 civilians in Iraq each month and coalition forces were sustaining more than 1,200 attacks each week;

Whereas, in December 2006, the Iraq Study Group warned that `the United States is facing one of its most difficult and significant international challenges in decades’ in Iraq and that `Iraq is vital to regional and even global stability, and is critical to U.S. interests’;

Whereas, in December 2004, Osama bin Laden said the following of the war in Iraq: `The most important and serious issue today for the whole world is this Third World War. . . . The world’s millstone and pillar is Baghdad, the capital of the caliphate.’;

Whereas, on January 10, 2007, in an address to the Nation, President George W. Bush acknowledged that the situation in Iraq was `unacceptable’ and announced his intention to put in place a new strategy, subsequently known as `the surge’;

Whereas President Bush nominated and the Senate confirmed General David H. Petraeus as the Commander of Multi-National Forces–Iraq, a position he assumed on February 10, 2007;

Whereas General Petraeus, upon assuming command, and in partnership with Lieutenant General Raymond Odierno, the Commander of Multi-National Corps–Iraq, and United States Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker, developed a comprehensive civil-military counterinsurgency campaign plan to reverse Iraq’s slide into chaos, defeat the enemies of the United States in Iraq, and, in partnership with the Iraqi Security Forces and the Government of Iraq, reestablish security across the country;

Whereas, under the previous strategy, the overwhelming majority of United States combat forces were concentrated on a small number of large forward operating bases and were not assigned the mission of providing security for the people of Iraq against insurgents, terrorists, and militia fighters, in part because there were insufficient members of the United States Armed Forces in Iraq to do so;

Whereas, as an integral component of the surge, approximately 5 additional United States Army brigades and 2 United States Marine Corps battalions were deployed to Iraq;

Whereas, as an integral component of the surge, members of the United States Armed Forces were deployed out of large forward operating bases onto small bases throughout Baghdad and other key population centers, partnering with the Iraqi Security Forces to provide security for the local population against insurgents, terrorists, and militia fighters;

Whereas additional members of the United States Armed Forces began moving into Iraq in January 2007 and reached full strength in June 2007;

Whereas, as a consequence of the additional forces needed in Iraq, in April 2007 the United States Army added 3 months to the standard year-long tour for all active duty soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the United States Marine Corps added 3 months to the standard 6-month tour for all active duty Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan;

Whereas, as an integral component of the surge, members of the United States Armed Forces began simultaneous and successive offensive operations, in partnership with the Iraqi Security Forces, of unprecedented breadth, continuity, and sophistication, striking multiple enemy safe havens and lines of communication at the same time;

Whereas, as an integral component of the surge, additional members of the United States Armed Forces were deployed to Anbar province to provide essential support to the nascent tribal revolt against al Qaeda in that province;

Whereas those additional members of the United States Armed Forces played a critical role in the success and spread of anti-Qaeda Sunni tribal groups in Anbar province and subsequently in other regions of Iraq;

Whereas, since the start of the surge in January 2007, there have been marked and hopeful improvements in almost every political, security, and economic indicator in Iraq;

Whereas, in 2007, General Petraeus described Iraq as `the central front of al Qaeda’s global campaign’;

Whereas, in 2008, as a consequence of the success of the surge, al Qaeda has been dealt what Director of Central Intelligence Michael Hayden assesses as a `near strategic defeat’ in Iraq;

Whereas, as a consequence of the success of the surge, militias backed by the Government of Iran have been routed from major population centers in Iraq and no longer control significant swaths of territory;

Whereas, as a consequence of the success of the surge, sectarian violence in Iraq has fallen dramatically and has been almost entirely eliminated;

Whereas, as a consequence of the success of the surge, overall insurgent attacks have fallen by approximately 80 percent since June 2007 and are at their lowest level since March 2004;

Whereas, as a consequence of the success of the surge, United States casualties in Iraq have dropped dramatically and United States combat deaths in Iraq in July 2008 were lower than in any other month since the beginning of the war;

Whereas, as a consequence of the success of the surge, the Government of Iraq has made significant strides in advancing sectarian reconciliation and achieving political progress, including the passage of key benchmark legislation;

Whereas, as a consequence of the success of the surge, the Iraqi Security Forces have improved markedly and approximately 70 percent of Iraqi combat battalions are now leading operations in their areas; and

Whereas, as a consequence of the success of the surge, General Petraeus concluded in 2008 that conditions on the ground in Iraq could permit the additional brigades and battalions dispatched to Iraq in 2007 as part of the surge to be safely redeployed without replacement, and all such brigades and battalions have been successfully withdrawn without replacement: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Senate–

(1) commends and expresses its gratitude to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces for the service, sacrifices, and heroism that made the success of the troop surge in Iraq possible;

(2) commends and expresses its gratitude to General David H. Petraeus, General Raymond Odierno, and Ambassador Ryan Crocker for the distinguished wartime leadership that made the success of the troop surge in Iraq possible;

(3) recognizes the success of the troop surge in Iraq and its strategic significance in advancing the vital national interests of the United States in Iraq, the Middle East, and the world, in particular as a strategic victory in a central front of the war on terrorism; and

(4) recognizes that the hard-won gains achieved as a result of the troop surge in Iraq are significant but not yet permanent and that it is imperative that no action be taken that jeopardizes those gains or dishonors the service and sacrifice of the men and women of the United States Armed Forces who made those gains possible.

If you still have questions or you would like to join the Vets For Freedom, please visit Vets For Freedom-Join Us. Thank you so much for all that you do to support those who are giving much more than we could ever repay and they ask nothing in return…except maybe a little respect. I do NOT think that is too much to ask. As a matter of fact, I demand it of myself. How about you?

Calling all Vets For Freedom members and suporters: Go to his site and give! They are working on his website as I type, but let me tell you a little something about this Medal of Honor nominee while you donate what you can and support him in anyway you are able.

His website is www.Bellavia2008.com, and this is one man you would truly like to know.

Dear Vets for Freedom members:

David Bellavia, Vets for Freedom co-founder, member of our Board of Advisors, and now a candidate for Congress in New York’s 26th Congressional District, resigned from our Board of Advisors Monday due to his candidacy. David will continue to be a member of the organization

David Bellavia is a great American, who served this country courageously on the battlefield in Iraq, receiving the Silver Star and a nomination for the Medal of Honor. But his service didn’t stop there. Here at home, David co-founded Vets for Freedom, as well as a local organization in his hometown of Buffalo, New York for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Vets for Freedom wishes David luck in what will be a difficult battle for a contested seat, and we are grateful for the voice he continues to give veterans here at home and those serving abroad. Please make sure to visit www.Bellavia2008.com to find out more information.

Give ’em Hell David,

Pete Hegseth
Executive Director
Vets for Freedom.

This is wonderful news for Congress! Let’s get donating. Let’s show them we’re not all talk. If they put up a candidate we can vote for, we become very enthusiastic!

I just want to add one thing that is somewhat off this topic. I did my Wednesday Hero yesterday but over here at the Vets for Freedom Blog, they have another person is also deserving of our attention. The title of the post is, “Honoring Marine CPL Jason Dunham.” This was a remarkable man who truly loved his team and his country. This is a MUST READ post. Would you like a taste? Okay:

A few days ago, I posted the tribute to Medal of Honor recipient SFC Paul Ray Smith by LTG William B. Caldwell, IV. Much like my efforts with They Have Names, LTG Caldwell wants to make sure that these brave warriors are not forgotten. As I noted to some after my trip to DC, most of the anti-war people that I spoke with talked about the Abu Ghraib disaster. Many of them could even give you name of either Granger or England. I would often ask them if they knew who SFC Paul Ray Smith was. “Was he the squad leader?” No. Do you know who CPL Jason Dunham was. “No, but it sounds familiar.” It should. What about Lt. Michael Murphy? “No.” Well, the same day I was in Washington, Petty Officer Michael Monsoor was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.

LTG Caldwell has written another poignant oratory about Marine CPL Dunham, who died of his wounds four years ago yesterday. While the rest of America was concerned with who was more “bitter”, we remember the passing of a true American hero. What follows is a must read letter for all Americans! Due to ceremonies to commemerate the occasion and updates to ASP, we were forced to present this a day late. [Continue reading.]

I wonder how many people truly know that we are living in a country filled with giants? I’m so grateful to them for all they do, even if they never make the papers. They do make it possible for those who do make the papers to do their work. God bless each and every one of their families, friends, and them.

Update: Um. I. Did. Something. Stupid. What? I called them Freedom For Vets, instead of Vets For Freedom. D’oh! I have since corrected this matter, but I’ve trackbacked with it the wrong name. My sincerest apologies.

Today I am having an open post trackback, and you are welcome to trackback or ping an article you wish to share with others.

Today is Monday, but I happen to know they reached DC yesterday. Pretty good time, eh? They sure did have many thrilling experiences along the way, starting with San Diego, CA. Here is what they have to say in an e-mail today:

Dear Vets for Freedom members:

For the past three weeks, the National Heroes Tour took the message of the success in Iraq straight to the American people. From San Antonio to Saint Paul to South Carolina, we engaged crowds large and small, and spoke with over 200 media outlets, reaching over 20 million people through local television and radio.

With just 3% of news coverage in the mainstream media committed to Iraq, we bypassed national media all together, and it worked. Local media outlets were very receptive to “ground truth,” and our veterans were able to provide it. Any way you slice it, the National Heroes Tour has been an overwhelming success.

But it’s not over yet. Tomorrow we bring our message to Congress, when over 400 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans descend on Capitol Hill for “Vets on the Hill.” Our guys will enjoy breakfast with the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Richard Myers, before heading to Capitol Hill for a bi-partisan press conference with two-dozen members of Congress, including Senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, and Lindsay Graham.

After the press conference, Vets for Freedom will flood the halls of Congress with a sea of warriors, armed with first-hand experience, facts about the incredible progress in Iraq, and a passion for nothing short of victory, Their stories are “taking points” that no one can refute—and members of Congress, on both sides of the aisle, will hear from them.

Our message is simple: Let them win! and listen to General David Petraeus. He was right in September, and has the best pulse on events in Iraq. Congress would be wise to heed his advice.

Commence Movement to Contact,

Pete Hegseth
Executive Director
Vets for Freedom

I agree wholeheartedly! LET THEM WIN! You people in Congress (believe it or not, that’s what they are and all that they are) had better listen to General Petraeus. If you were so intelligent, you would have his job. But you DON’T! There is a reason for that. WE WANT TO LIVE! He is the only thing standing between the enemy+congress and us. We will be on his side. If you don’t believe us, we will remember how you treated him the next time it comes to vote on your behaviour. *hah*
