Speaking of Hillary....

Feminists love them some 'Stand by your man' Hillary. Some of my friends that are strong, intelligent women love them some Hillary Clinton.

I don't get it.

I've never gotten it.

She's not my kind of 'strong woman.' The women on The Five are my type of strong women. (Are liberal feminists intimidated by beautiful, strong women?!)

I knew that Hillary was ambitious. I mean, come on, that's the only reason she stood by her man. I knew her politics were polar opposite of mine. Though, somewhere inside me I always felt like we might have been better off with Hillary than we've been with Obama.

But to sell a 12 year old virgin that was raped and destroyed up the river....?

I didn't even think she would do that.

And, given her status among liberal feminists...I can't believe this story is getting no play. I don't give a crap how long ago this was. There is no statute of limitations on judging ACTIONS over WORDS.

Bob Beckel's defense...? She was only 27?

Fallout: Benghazi & Iraq

Is anyone else wondering why such a seasoned political veteran would make this novice a mistake?

Of course, what I'm really wondering is why the Republicans are so impotent at (deserved) character assassination? How is it possible that Hillary is still considered the "2016 Democratic frontrunner" after everything that has transpired over the past few years?!

And, I agree with CBFTW's sentiment...Is there really anything to say about Iraq?

I remember Mosul, but Iraq 3.0 is what happens when you exit a war early

To my knowledge, my Dad, also a Vietnam Veteran, never denied losing the Vietnam War...he always said the government never had the stomach nor the desire to win it...

Purple for Peace

Seeing this on facebook today reminded me of the post that brought Army Girl to my blog...10 years later and we are still 'real life' friends:

The Purple Peace Saga

Today my little and I watched an episode of The Pacific and talked about the sacrifices our military makes. At the tender age of five, he seemed genuinely impressed.

From the Loins of the Father

So, I definitely wouldn't be classified as a "birther." I took a slight interest in the citizenship of the President before he entered the Oval Office, but I pretty much set that aside once Winston Churchill's bust was hastily shipped back to 10 Downing Street. I won't lie....when these photos surface on my Facebook timeline, I can't help but to click the link...

But, out of pure entertainment.

I was and am much more interested in the psychology of a Muslim being elected to office post 9/11. No, I am also not one of those folks that claims Barack Husein Obama is secretly kneeling facing Mecca from the White House. Truthfully, I think Obama only worships at the alter of Obama, is a humanist and disdains all religion as the crutch of the weak minded. BUT, I also know that as Judaism is from the womb of the Mother --that Muslims are beget from the loins of their Fathers. My contention has always been that whether President Obama professes or practices Islam is irrelevant --in the eyes of the "Arab Street" (that we're always so concerned about), he IS a Muslim. His Father was a Muslim. His loins were Muslim. They beget a Muslim.

I never could understand how people could argue with this. I feel it's beyond debate.

Why am I thinking about this again in 2014?

Because of Mariam Yahya Ibrahim.

"Ibrahim was condemned to die by hanging after she declined to profess she is a Muslim, the religion of her father. Sharia law considers her a Muslim and does not recognize her marriage to a Christian. She is unlikely to change her mind despite giving birth in prison, says her husband Daniel Wani, who also is a Christian.

The court convicted her of apostasy and adultery two weeks ago. At the time, she was eight months pregnant. She gave birth to a baby girl this week at a Khartoum prison, where she's detained with Martin, her 20-month-old son.

Despite languishing in prison with two infants, she's holding firm to her beliefs, according to her husband.

"There is pressure on her from Muslim religious leaders that she should return to the faith," Wani told CNN in a TV exclusive. "She said, 'How can I return when I never was a Muslim? Yes, my father was a Muslim, but I was brought up by my mother.' "
Christian sentenced to death
Will Sudan execute jailed young mother?
Husband: All I can do is pray

Wani said his wife is a practicing Christian, more so than him, and even had their son baptized." (source)

In the eyes of Shari law, she is a Muslim regardless of her own beliefs because her FATHER is a Muslim.

If anyone should be rushing to do something about this, it's Obama! Her husband is an American and her children are therefore American and she is slotted to become and American due to those things... Yet our President, that could find himself sentenced to the same fate given his lineage, does nothing.

What if it wasn't Bowe Bergdahl?

Look at the headlines above... You know Obama must be floundering if even CNN, Time and Newsweek aren't backing his latest foible.

I'm fairly sure we'll all agree that this is a disaster. That the fact that six soldiers died on missions searching for what appears to be a deserter (not to mention enemy sympathizer) is bad enough, but to know that FIVE top operatives were released that could orchestrate the deaths of many, many virtually unbelievable.

But, my question is...what if it wasn't Bowe Bergdahl (Weird dad a Ziggy Stardust fan or just can't spell?)?

What if if were Matt Maupin (RIP) or Pat Tillman (RIP)? What if it were an honorable, American loving soldier that was serving and fighting for their country with pride. And we knew they were being tortured or their health was in jeopardy.

I know it's easy to say we don't negotiate with terrorists, but I am also not a hypocrite and I know if it were my son, I'd want anything to be done to get him back.

And I know people say this opens the door to military members being kidnapped for money --but I think I'd rather them kept alive for the hope of money than decapitated fro the glory of Allah...
