Gee, whatever happened to all that Christian talk about loving your enemies?

Your just supposed to love them but not respect them?

 

Obama doesn't love Americans.  Remember - he wants to "punish" us.

 

Anyone else think's interesting that Obama authorizes the media to cover all of our KIA coming back, but not Bin Laden?


Ummm...no, I don't remember that. Have you got a citation?

I love them enough to demonstrate to them visually what will happen to them if they continue with their terrorist ways.

Even Jesus kicked some butt.


So did the Prophet Muhammad. 


I guess that it is going to take a couple thousand years to work that one out.


Or


Perhaps Hestia (before your time here ate 10F) was right, one of these centuries we are going to just blow up the whole planet.

if this were True then Republicans and Conservabots would not be trying to force God into schools and calling Scientific Theories "just theories"

God is still in the schools - it was the progressives that have outlawed Him.

 

No. More like it was the atheists that declared that God was dead (i.e. He never lived). Progressives just decided that the government shouldn't take sides in that debate.

If that was true, then people would be allowed to pray in school instead of being expelled.

"Prayer" would be taking sides. "A moment of silent meditiation" would be more nuetral.

Neutral?  When a kid brings a bible to school and silently prays and gets expelled, that's not "neutral."  That is anti-God.  The Constitution limits the FEDERAL government from pushing religion or descriminating against it.  It does not limit individuals choice to participate or not to.

 U.S. lifts photo ban on military coffins
By Elisabeth Bumiller
Published: Monday, December 7, 2009







WASHINGTON — In a reversal of an 18-year-old military policy that critics said was hiding the ultimate cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the news media will now be allowed to photograph the flag-draped coffins of America's war dead as their bodies are returned to the United States, but only if the families of the dead agree.


The decision, which Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced Thursday, lifts a 1991 blanket ban on such photographs put in place under President George Bush. It chiefly affects coffins arriving from Iraq and Afghanistan that go through Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.


"I think that foremost in our thinking about issues like this should be the families and giving them choices," Gates said at a news conference at the Pentagon.


Renewed as recently as a year ago by the administration of President George W. Bush, the ban has long been a source of intense debate.


The military said the ban protected the privacy and dignity of families of the dead. But others, including some of the families as well as opponents of the Iraq war, said it sanitized the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and was intended to control public anger over the conflicts.


Gates, who said at the news conference that he was "never comfortable" with the ban, tried to have it overturned a year ago.


But he said he encountered resistance in the Pentagon, and so he "demurred."


But once President Barack Obama said this month that he was reviewing the ban, Gates again sounded out senior officials at the Pentagon.


"I'll be perfectly honest," Gates said. "There was a division in the building."


But, he added, a "very compelling" memorandum from the army in favor of changing the policy was persuasive, particularly because the army accounts for most of the war dead in Iraq and Afghanistan.


Gates said he came to the conclusion that "we should not presume to make the decision for the families; we should actually let them make it."


Under the new policy, photographs will not be permitted of a coffin if a family says no. The policy is similar to one in place for funerals at Arlington National Cemetery.


Reaction to the change from both sides was swift.


"I'm very disappointed," said John Ellsworth, the president of Military Families United, whose son, Lance Corporal Justin Ellsworth, was killed in Iraq in 2004 at age 20. "There was nothing wrong with the way things were. I believe that the administration basically caved to the special interest groups, the antiwar groups, that are going to politicize our fallen."


"What is the need to show these caskets," Ellsworth added, "other than to try to inflame controversy?"


Jon Soltz, the chairman of VoteVets.org, an anti-Iraq war group that says it has 15,000 military families as members, said he was pleased with the decision.


"So many Americans want to have Memorial Day once a year, when they go to the beach and cook hot dogs in the backyard," Soltz said.


"This is a way for Americans to see and honor the sacrifice of our fallen when it occurs. It's something our public should be aware of."


Senator Frank Lautenberg, Democrat of New Jersey, introduced a measure in 2004 to try to lift the ban. Lautenberg commended Gates's decision, saying in a statement that "we should honor, not hide, flag-draped coffins."


News organizations also praised the change in policy. "The public has a right to see and to know what their military is doing, and they have a right to see the cost of that military action," said Santiago Lyon, the director of photography for The Associated Press. "I think what we had before was a form of censorship."

One Day in the War Room



TRANSCRIPT WH-011/b-119 (DOD COMSPEC)
JSOC CLASSIFIED DOCUMENT
CLEARANCE G2 REQUIRED


COMGEN JSOC
Ladies and gentlemen, please take a seat. The operation is scheduled to commence at 0445 local time. Mr. President, the command chair is yours if you would like it. Mr. President?


POTUS
Who, me? Oh, uh, sorry, I was reading the reviews of my set at the Correspondent's dinner. Check this out everybody, I got three and half stars from the Post!


VPOTUS
You slayed 'em boss! Did you see that look on Trump's face? Zing!


COMGEN JSOC
Yes sir, it was quite impressive. Would you like the command chair?


POTUS
No thanks, I'll just sit here in the corner. I might have to bug out for my 4pm tee time. Dammit, how come I'm not getting a single bar on my iPhone?


SECDEF 
I'm sorry Mr. President, the war room is scrambled during a Code Delta situation.


POTUS
How long is this thing going to take? I still haven't read my reviews at the Times and Huffington Post.


COMGEN JSOC
Undetermined, sir. SEAL 6 has trained against 16 different strike site defense scenarios. If you recall, I briefed you on those last night.


POTUS
Yeah, right during my rehearsal. And you almost threw my timing.


COMGEN JSOC
I... uh... no excuse, sir.


SECDEF
Quiet everyone, the satellite feed is coming in. This infrared image is from the inside of chopper 1.


SECSTATE
Wait a minute... is this SEAL team 6?


COMGEN JSOC
Yes ma'am.


SECSTATE
Why aren't there any women?


COMGEN JSOC
Ma'am?


SECSTATE
Don't act dumb with me, General. It's been 14 years since "G.I. Jane," and your so-called Special Forces are still engaged in gender discrimination.


COMGEN JSOC
Um... I'll have my staff prepare a report for you first thing post-target extraction, ma'am. Mr. President, if you look... Mr. President?


POTUS
Just a sec... I'm almost winning at Free Cell.


COMGEN JSOC
Mr. President, why don't you give me your iPhone and take this.


POTUS
What's this?


COMGEN JSOC
It's an XBox controller. It, uh, controls the SEALs.


POTUS
Really?


COMGEN JSOC
Yes sir. We thought by letting you participate in the operation, it might help make it less boring.


POTUS
Cool! What do the buttons do?


COMGEN JSOC
They... uh... just push them, you'll figure it out.


VPOTUS
Ooh! Ooh!


COMGEN JSOC
Yes, Mr. Vice President. You don't have to raise your hand.


VPOTUS
I wanna play too! Can I play with my Wii controller?


COMGEN JSOC
Sure, go ahead. And now, if...


POTUS
I call dibs on SEAL team 6!


VPOTUS
How come I always have to be the terrorist?


SECDEF
Dammit - Chopper two's rotor hit the compound wall.


POTUS
It's not my fault it's this stupid controller! The A button is sticky.


VPOTUS
Haha! PWND, American Infidel!


COMGEN JSOC
I've got - I've got confirmation... Chopper 2 down, but crew all safe.


POTUS
You're going down Osama! I'm at full health!


VPOTUS
Haha for you, infidel! I am have the kung fu moves!


POTUS
Ow! Dammit Joe, watch it with that thing!


COMGEN JSOC
So far so good... if the sitrep is accurate behind this door should be target location...


POTUS
Pa-pow! Pa-pow! Pa-pow!


VPOTUS
Hey! Those were my henchmen! Two can play at that game...


SECSTATE
Joe?! What the hell are you doing?


VPOTUS
I am to making you the human shield, stupid wife! Do not the talks to me behind your burka!


POTUS
Blammo!


VPOTUS
Arrr.... you... got... me... infidel pig...


POTUS
Woo! Level up!


VPOTUS
Lay down on the ground Hillary! He got you too.


POTUS
And the world is saved once again, thanks to Barack Obama, Navy SEAL.


[applause]


COMGEN JSOC
Mr. President, aren't you going to stick around to see the extraction?


POTUS
See it? I lived it.
