Defense chief: Iraqis showed no will to fight at Ramadi

Iraq ImageWASHINGTON (AP) — The Islamic State group’s takeover of the provincial capital Ramadi is stark evidence that Iraqi forces lack the “will to fight,” Defense Secretary Ash Carter said in a TV interview that aired Sunday. The harsh assessment raised new questions about the Obama administration’s strategy to defeat the extremist group that has seized a strategically important swath of the Middle East. SOURCE

Long time readers of The TexasFred Blog will know; I was against our going into Iraq, we went for ALL the wrong reasons. Operation Iraqi Freedom was a *feel good moniker that was intended to bolster the resolve for Americans that had doubts.

Once the Iraqi Army was defeated and Saddam Hussein was taken prisoner, the Iraqis had more FREEDOM than they had ever known, and now they have blown it.

The entire time we were in Iraq the Iraqi army was NO THREAT, they went down like a rock; the Islamic insurgency was the real danger to American troops.

As I have said on numerous occasions on THIS blog; once we are out of Iraq it’s all over but the crying. I predicted that the Iraqis could not and would not stand against ANY invasion, of any kind, and that prediction has, sadly, come to fruition.

We have proven that an insurgency can be beaten down, albeit not without huge risks and loss of American lives, but ISIS, al-Qaida, whatever name they happen to be currently using has got to be stopped, but stopped in Iraq, and elsewhere in the world before they become even more entrenched in this nation than they already are.

No more *Operation Iraqi Freedom*, that was a comical title at best. Screw Iraq AND their freedom, it’s time to worry about Americans and American Freedom!

Ohio patrolman acquitted in 2 deaths amid 137-shot barrage

Ohio patrolman acquitted in 2 deaths amid 137-shot barrage

CLEVELAND (AP) — A white Cleveland patrolman who fired down through the windshield of a suspect’s car at the end of a 137-shot barrage that left the two unarmed black occupants dead was acquitted Saturday of criminal charges by a judge who said he could not determine the officer alone fired the fatal shots.

Michael Brelo, 31, put his head in hands as the judge issued a verdict followed by angry, but peaceful, protests: Outside the courthouse police blocked furious protesters from going inside while across the city others held a mock funeral with some carrying signs asking, “Will I be next?” SOURCE

“Will I be next?” I would say THAT is entirely up to you.

Criminals need reform

What the Officers NEED is *range time*. They fired 137 shots and it took a Cop climbing on the hood of the car, firing into the car to finish this off?

Yes indeed, *range time* is needed here!

Violent crime surges as arrests drop in Baltimore post-riots

Violent crime surges as arrests drop in Baltimore post-riots

Crime is rising in Baltimore, and some law enforcement experts suspect an anti-cop climate stemming from the racially charged case of Freddie Gray is at least partly responsible.

Homicides in 2015 so far stand at 100, up from 71 for the same period last year, and on pace to be the Charm City’s deadliest year since 2007. Nonfatal shootings are up 70 percent this year, following a particularly violent week that saw 19 people shot on Tuesday and Wednesday alone.

“It’s extremely frustrating,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Thursday. “It is disheartening, but I am still resolved to continue to reduce violent crime in our city.” SOURCE

What, exactly, do you expect Ms. Rawlings-Blake? You wouldn’t allow the Baltimore Police to do their job. You didn’t *back up* your Police. You gave the ghetto animals permission to riot and destroy. You said, “I gave those who wished to destroy space to do so.”

Baltimore is a Black/Democrat heaven, you people have exactly the city YOU deserve, the government YOU voted for and the moral decay YOU so richly deserve, and YOU Ms. Rawlings-Blake, and your congress of baboons, are the reason for ALL of it.

Obama Admin Knew About Benghazi Before It Happened

Obama Admin Knew About Benghazi Before It Happened

Washington, DC – Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR), and had been planned at least 10 days in advance. Rahman is known as the Blind Sheikh, and is serving life in prison for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other terrorist acts. The new documents also provide the first official confirmation that shows the U.S. government was aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria. The documents also include an August 2012 analysis warning of the rise of ISIS and the predicted failure of the Obama policy of regime change in Syria. SOURCE

Benghazi Four Barack Hussein Obama knew, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta knew, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Obama White House National Security Council knew and yet all they did was sit and watch when Benghazi was attacked and Amb. Christopher Stevens; information management officer Sean Smith; and two security officers who were former Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were murdered.

All of the above named former Obama officials, as well as Barack Hussein Obama himself need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for their complicity in those deaths.

One last thing; Hillary Clinton can NEVER be allowed to become President!
