'Toon of the Day: From Patton to Petraeus

Political Cartoons by Michael Ramirez

"What killed Petraeus was his dazzling hypocrisy.  The general held himself up as a paragon of self-discipline and model family man. In Iraq and then Afghanistan, he rigorously enforced “General Order No. 1,” which prohibits our troops from fraternization, all sex, alcohol consumption, the possession of pornography and, generally, from any activity that might make the boredom and terror of this kind of war more bearable. When our troops screwed up, they got hammered. Generals can take a weekend in Paris and get drunk (as Gen. Stanley McChrystal did), but the grunt who goofs in a firefight faces a court-martial."

- Colonel Ralph Peters (Ret), General Failures, New York Post, 14 November 2012

A while ago, I said that Germany could be used as a teaching aid to show how to breed self-respect out of a population…from Prussification to Pussification in less than a century.

Sadly, we are now faced with a similar situation and even our "heroes" are disappointments.  I'm not passing judgment on Petraeus' adultery.  That's for his wife and his family to do.  But, I am rendering my verdict on his judgment both in jeopardising national security with Paula Broadwell and spouting the administration's line on a "spontaneous protest" about a "vile youtube video."  We need leaders, who tell the truth...even when it is hard and uncomfortable.  I had hoped that General Petraeus would have been one that we could have counted on to do that.  Unfortunately, I think history will prove in the end that his measure was taken and found to be wanting.  I hope that I am wrong.

I want someone to stand a deliver this speech:

"In this time of nuclear weaponry, we cannot afford to wait for the fight to come to us.  You need to understand that.  This political correctness stuff is a bunch of crap.   This generation is so goddamned spoiled and lazy that they wouldn't know a real threat to their freedom until it interrupted the power source to their x-box and killed a half a million people.  'The complacency of fools will destroy them."  That's written in the Bible.

My God, I really wonder where we'd be today if some of our current members of Congress were residing during World War II.  I think that we'd all be speaking German right now and the world would have a severe shortage of Jews.  These people like Harry Reid.  That son of a bitch is like a man in combat who won't provide you the cover of fire that you ask for so you end up getting your goddamned head blown off!  People like him don't know anything more about the process of defending modern freedom than they do about fornicating.

"Keep moving. We'll win this war, but we'll win it only by fighting and by showing Progressives 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 fuel our big-assed SUVs.

I don't want to get any messages saying, 'I am holding my position.' We are not holding a Goddamned thing.  Let the Progressives 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....
From time to time there will be some complaints that we are pushing our people too hard. I don't give a good Goddamn about such complaints. I believe in the old and sound rule that an ounce of sweat will save a gallon of blood. The harder WE push, the more Progressives we will kill. The more Progressives we kill, the fewer of our liberties will be killed. Pushing means more liberty. I want you all to remember that.

I want you to knock on doors.  Ring up everyone that you know.  Get in people's faces.  Bring bazookas to knife fights.  Register people to vote against Obama.  Drive busloads of people to the polls.

Divorce your spouse if s/he intends to vote for higher taxes, higher energy bills, wealth redistribution, more debt monetisation, more currency devaluation, trillions more in debt, taxation without representation  forced upon your future heirs, jailers of "blasphemers," defenders of barbarians, and for those that "love America so much that they want to fundamentally transform her."

Disown your children, if they intend to vote for Progressives.  They "care about the poor"?  Well, good!  Let them live amongst them and see how well government programmes help the poor!  They can be foot soldiers in the War on Poverty.   If they are typical of the Left, we will soon be hearing about "exit strategies!

May God have mercy on my enemies because I won't."

- "General George S Patton"
