General George S. Patton, Jr. – Operation Overlord Speech

On the eve of war, this speech comes back to me:

When a man is lying in a shell hole, if he just stays there all day, a German will get to him eventually. The hell with that idea. The hell with taking it. My men don’t dig foxholes. I don’t want them to. Foxholes only slow up an offensive. Keep moving. And don’t give the enemy time to dig one either. We’ll win this war, but we’ll win it only by fighting and by showing the Germans that we’ve got more guts than they have; or ever will have. We’re not going to just shoot the sons-of-bitches, we’re going to rip out their living Goddamned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We’re going to murder those lousy Hun cocksuckers by the bushel-fucking-basket. War is a bloody, killing business. You’ve got to spill their blood, or they will spill yours. Rip them up the belly. Shoot them in the guts. When shells are hitting all around you and you wipe the dirt off your face and realize that instead of dirt it’s the blood and guts of what once was your best friend beside you, you’ll know what to do!

I don’t want to get any messages saying, “I am holding my position.” We are not holding a Goddamned thing. Let the Germans do that. We are advancing constantly and we are not interested in holding onto anything, except the enemy’s balls. We are going to twist his balls and kick the living shit out of him all of the time. Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to go over, under, or through the enemy. We are going to go through him like crap through a goose; like shit through a tin horn!

I want to say, for the record, that my stance against the government prohibitions on what you can ingest extend even to this. Besides, it makes for some really good playground taunts.

Blame the Jews?

WorldNetDaily: Blame the Jews?

A point by point dismantling of the Zionist-War lie:

Some Americans apparently believe that we are going to war with Iraq “because of the Jews.” Having written a book explaining anti-Semitism (“Why the Jews? The Reason for Antisemitism,” Simon and Schuster), all I can do is marvel at the durability of anti-Semitism and the eternality of the charge that the Jews are responsible for everything anti-Semites fear.

Reward our allies, but treat disagreement with respect

Reward our allies, but treat disagreement with respect

I think that this would indeed be the best route.

How should the United States deal with those nations that made the Security Council irrelevant?

Neither with anger nor with petulance. Forget about our sacrifices in freeing France, Germany and Russia from Hitlerism and Stalinism; remembrance has no place in their diplomacy.

Set aside personal economic retaliation: no switching from French to Spanish wine, from Russian to Polish vodka, from German to Italian designers.

Instead, President Bush should reward those countries whose leaders stand with us in stopping the spread of 21st-century terror.

I will indeed by boycotting French products, because I have never been overly fond of the French culture, and because the French actions do indeed have popular support. I also hope that the socialism of that country will colapse with a little economic damage. In other words, I switched from Perrier to Pellegrino.

I like the idea of saying, “Sure, I’ll keep going like we have been, but you won’t get anything more. I’m saving that stuff for my real buddies.”

Israeli Bulldozer Kills U.S. Woman, 23

*snort*

Hey, she got what she wanted, right? She was a human shield. Now she is a human pothole. Given the number of construction accidents we have with bulldozers here in the states, I have no doubt that this was an accident.

Witnesses said Corrie was wearing a brightly colored jacket when the bulldozer hit her.
BFD. The guys who get squished here in the states are wearing orange vests and colored hard hats. When you are hidden by the blade from the driver, it doesn’t matter what you are wearing.

Here is the deal. She’s dancing around in front of this dozer. She and others like her have done this dance for the last two years. Dance around like you are doing something, and then jump out of the way at the last minute. This time she fell down and didn’t get out of the way. The driver can’t see her, so he can’t know that she fell. Oops.

“Rachel was alone in front of the house as we were trying to get them to stop,” Schnabel said. “She waved for the bulldozer to stop and waved. She fell down and the bulldozer kept going. We yelled, ‘Stop, stop,’ and the bulldozer didn’t stop at all. It had completely run over her and then it reversed and ran back over her.”
“It was like, we were there, like, yelling at them to stop, like normal, you know, and then she fell, and we were all like, ‘Stop, dude!’ and he didn’t even listen. And then he backed up like he never even knew she was there. I bet he is a Republican or something, you know?”
