Sad Day Indeed

It is a sad day for me.

I can't believe the private sector in America, the land of the free, will be run by the government more every day!
Goodbye General Motors. We had some great times in the cars you supplied!
Now that you are GM ie. Government Motors.... Well the past is the past.
It is not the governments business to bail out anybody! It defies what has set us apart from the rest of the world, and that is TRUE Capitalism.
We have now lost the edge that has made us a special place.
To my decedents.... I am sorry you won't be able to see the America I have.
I will not give up the dream for us to be the Nation we once were.

That is real "Hope & Change!

Bradley's Last Mission

May 22, 2002Our U.S. Army Rangers still aren't allowed to talk publicly about Operation Anaconda, fought last March in Afghanistan, probably because the Op proved in spades how out of touch the top brass are with counter-guerrilla tactics. I suspect the Secrecy Act is being employed once again to protect bad generals - at the cost of telling our countrymen the truth about an extraordinary mission conducted by the men of the 1st Platoon of Alpha Company, 1/75th Rangers. Eyewitness reports I've stitched together from allied commandos testify to that platoon's daring and heroism while rescuing teammates and aircrew from a downed chopper as they were about to be snuffed out by a ferocious enemy.Earlier, the platoon had been spread across the battlefield on separate missions. When word came down to find MIA Navy SEAL Neil Roberts, the lead element air-assaulted, its chopper was shot to smithereens upon landing, and the Rangers and aircrew were stuck on a rocky ridge surrounded by a large, well-dug-in al-Qaeda force. Because of blistering enemy incoming fire, a 1st Platoon reinforcing element landed by chopper at the base of the mountain, about a mile from the besieged warriors. The 10 men began clawing their way toward the top - loaded down with 100 pounds of kit - on what would prove to be a 5,000-foot, almost-vertical three-hour climb. And throughout this near mission-impossible feat, they were battered by enemy rifle and mortar fire that wounded several of these elite warriors. When the Rangers got to the top, they busted through the enemy's bunker line and linked up with their surrounded mates. But they soon found themselves waist-high in snow, the thermometer hovering around zero, in an increasingly hotter frying pan - with incoming RPG grenades, recoilless rifle fire, mortars thumping in and bullets snapping like angry bees across the open plain at 12,000 feet.An SAS commando who watched the fight said, "These blokes, along with their tactical aircraft and chopper air support, killed a bloody lot of them." Apart from their own incredible guts, the air support - virtually on top of them - is what kept them alive. If USAF air controller Staff Sgt. Kevin Vance wasn't on the ground bravely directing the fire, it would have been taps for all these good men. (Editor's Note: See "For the Record: Account of Gardez Battle, March 4, 2002" in this edition of DefenseWatch.)Ranger Marc Anderson said, "This is where all the training pays off," before catching one with his name on it while bounding toward the enemy. Ranger Bradley Crose was hit in the head by a round that smashed under his helmet and out the back of his head, and Ranger Matthew Commons went down for the count as well. Air Force warrior Jason Cunningham was hit by two rounds in the gut and lay out in the bitter cold - slowly bleeding to death. When the Ranger rifles were shot up, had malfunctioned or the men ran out of ammo, the Rangers policed up al-Qaeda weapons and waded into the fanatics, wasting them with their own bullets. For almost 18 long, blood-soaked hours, it was often hand-to-hand fighting with knives, pistols and rifle butts. That terrible night, the Rangers were supported by USAF AC-130 Specter gunships that, according to an Aussie SAS commando on a nearby knob, lit up the hills around them. "It was bloody amazing, the most beautiful - yet fearsome - sight I'd ever seen," he said.The entire action was relayed by Predator drone to the White House, the Pentagon and the generals whose flawed plan got our kids into FUBAR-plus in the first place. The spectators could watch in comfort and safety while our courageous Rangers fought and died and another squad fell wounded. But those who were hit never faltered, continuing to put heavy fire on the enemy in the fierce kind of combat and freezing conditions our forces haven't seen since the Korean War.Marc Anderson used to tell his buddies he was leaving the 1st Platoon $5,000 to celebrate the good times if he checked out. Upon their return to Fort Stewart, Ga., they were stunned to learn he wasn't kidding. Hopefully, it won't be long before they'll be lifting a few to him and the other extraordinary men they - and we - lost during one of the most heroic small-unit fights in U.S. history.

Bradley Crose

This will be the first post in recognition of the life and sacrifice of my cousin Bradley S. Crose.

Birth: Aug. 4, 1979
Orange County
Florida, USA
Death: Mar. 4, 2002, Afghanistan
Army Sgt Crose was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia. Crose was in command of a six member fire team; part of a helicopter rescue team sent to retrieve the body of Navy SEAL, Neil Roberts, who had been killed in combat during Operation Anaconda outside Gardez. Crose died in a gun battle with Taliban and al-Qaida fighters after two MH-47 Chinook helicopters were hit by grenades. Bradley was born at the Naval Hospital in Orlando into a Navy family and tradition. He graduated from Orange Park High School in 1998 and two weeks later he joined the Army. While in school, he held a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do where he won a Bronze Medal in the Junior Olympics, was a runner-up at both the Florida and Georgia State Championships and fought in the Men's National Tae Kwon Do Championships in Houston, Texas at the age of 15. He was an avid Gator fan and reader, who spent $100 on classical literature at a local bookstore before he headed for Afghanistan. Bradley was proud to be an Army Ranger and was scheduled for discharge in October 2002. After getting out of the military, he planned on attending college, restoring his 1981 Corvette and hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Quote of the day

"We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."

--Nikita Khrushchev


If you are bothered by occasional or frequent constipation, repeat the following phrase three times in succession when symptoms occur:

"My financial and personal well being are totally in the hands of
Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Tim Geithner, Rahm
Emmanual, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Al Gore"

If that doesn't scare the shit out of you, then you are probably
destined to be full of it for the rest of your life.

Quote of the day

Hate is simply the absence of love, just as darkness is the absence of light. Poverty is the absence of abundance, sickness is the absence of health, and sadness is the absence of joy. All negativity is simply the absence of something positive.

This is why we need to be positive.
