Well, due to some spammer having found this obscure blog, I have been forced to refuse Anonymous posts. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for legitimate posters, but since I am unable to send feedback to the offending servers causing them to explode and burst into flames - well, I do what I can. Thank you to all my sincere commentators and may the spammers rot in digital agony.

US aim for ‘zero civilian casualties’ draws criticism

"U.S. and coalition air forces are aiming for zero civilian casualties in airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), frustrating some lawmakers who say the military campaign is progressing too slowly."

Oh my gawd!

Fight the war or not, you moronic pacifists.

"Zero civilian casualties?"

So, all ISIS has to do is grab some civilians, hand-cuff, tie or chain them to their vehicles or in their buildings, and voila! Instant protection from any sort of attack.

What we need to do is go all Dresden on their sorry @sses.

Terrorists can't hide where they aren't - at least - grudgingly accepted. If the civilians in these towns and cities didn't want ISIS, they could throw them out. So, we send over a few squadrons of B-52s, lay down a few hundred tons of iron bombs - none of this picayune "surgical strikes" malarkey - and level their cities, if they don't kick out ISIS. Make them fear US far more than they fear ISIS.

All these people understand is a heavy hand and all we're doing is giving them stern looks.

South Carolina governor expected to call for removal of Confederate flag

The Hill reports that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is expected to call for the removal of the Confederate flag from the state capitol grounds at a Monday afternoon press conference.

Speaking as a born Yankee, I find this ridiculous. The flag didn't do anything. Leave it to the left to attack a symbol, rather than the party responsible.

When I first moved to Texas, I saw all these bumper stickers saying, "The South's Gonna Do It Again!!" My first thought was, "What, lose?" I thought that it was silly to revere this flag, but, hey, to each his own.

An insane fool shot up the church, not a hunk of cloth. Put the fool away, execute him, but attacking a collection of colored threads arranged in a pattern is just plain moronic.
