USS Cole Anniversary....

Seven years ago, the USS Cole was attacked by two Islamofascists in a boat filled with explosives.  This would of course, go along with all the other anniversaries from the great war on Islamofascists waged by the great white warlord, President Bill Clinton.  Here is a mere sampling:

  • First World Trade Center Attack (1993)
  • Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya (1998)
  • The attack at CIA HQ by Mir Aimal Kansi (1993)
  • The failed NYC Landmark Bomb Plot (1993)
  • Brooklyn Bridge Shooting of Hasidic Seminary student by Rashid Baz (1994)
  • 2 American Consulate workers killed and another wounded in Karachi (1995)
  • Khobar Towers Bombing with 19 dead and many more wounded (1996)

The last time I checked, when you attacked a ship o' the line, it was considered and act of war and should be responded to with the appropriate amount force, for the appropriate amount of time. 

I am glad to see that Richard Newcomb has something up on it at Newsbusters.  I, like him, have scanned most of the major news outlets this morning and all the bloviating is about warm-monger in chief Al Bore getting a Nobel Prize for his lies and falsehoods about how warm the planet is getting.

It truly is a shame that the Old Media dinosaurs keep a daily running tab of US Service members KIA in Iraq, but give this zero coverage.  Glad to know that they are on our side.

  1. Electronics Technician 1st Class Richard Costelow
  2. Mess Management Specialist Lakina Francis
  3. Information Systems Technician Tim Guana
