Ms Short is the former UN Development Secretary. Seems she has priors.

Say It Isn't So!

The UN is bitching about President Bush undermining them with his proposed aid coalition, claiming that they have a monopoly on such efforts.

“I think this initiative from America to set up four countries claiming to coordinate sounds like yet another attempt to undermine the UN when it is the best system we have got and the one that needs building up,” sez UN developement secretary Clare Short. “Only really the UN can do that job.”

“It is the only body that has the moral authority. But it can only do it well if it is backed up by the authority of the great powers.”

Hello? Moral Authority? Have you heard of the Oil Vouchers for UN Votes bribery scandal, Clare? Why should we trust the UN with our money? The best part of the UN has always been US influence. Otherwise, it's a vacation resort for third world thugs, dictators, anti-Semites and assorted socialists to give them a platform to demand wealth transfers from free nations who respect human rights to their self-inflicted poverty stricken hellholes so they can continue to loot and stash the money in Switzerland, ala Arafat.

The rest of her statement is as addled as what I've put here. Good for Bush. The UN has made itself irrelevant thru scandal and incompetence. It's time to show them through such actions that they aren't trusted anymore.

Rathergate Stuff

WaPo: 10 Errors about Memogate in One Paragraph has a great fisking of the farce of defending the Rathergate Bush AWOL story in the Washington Post that is artfully weasel-ish in its construction. Point # 14 of the WAPO paragraph is the only thing with which I disagree; Conservatives, or anyone else interested in truth and accuracy WERE handed a weapon, in fact a LOADED weapon, in that CBS news did their fact check, disregarded their experts, lied about what their experts said and ran the story anyway. Going with that fraud of a story is like a 7 point buck walking up to a hunter during deer season with a "SHOOT ME HERE" sign duct taped to his head and handing the hunter a loaded rifle; they were ASKING for a virtual beatdown. There was no need for Karl Rove whatsoever. I think Dan Rather was crying for help in his addiction to leftwing nonsense like the Bush AWOL story.

Despite the MSM mining all of 1LT Bushes attendance/pay records, dental files etc, there's is no proof whatsoever of him being AWOL. In fact, Bushes records refute the AWOL charge in and of themselves, as his Commander would have to list him as AWOL on the attendance records for that to be so. Having spent 20+ years dealing with such attendance records and actual-for-real AWOL charges gives me confidance in my statements here. The forged memos are a red herring because, even if they weren't forged, they still do not support a charge of AWOL. The only official document that could support that charge are the pay and attendance records and a charge sheet; the former refutes the charge outright while the latter doesn't exist because it never happened. And no, unsubstantiated accusations by leftist malcontents do not constitute "proof". 1LT Bush missed some drills and his commander allowed him to make them up, which is the CO's prerogative. Case Closed.

The loopy, illiterate "perfessor" who posted his rantings on the blog is damn near self-parody; a Poster Child for doing away with tenure in our Universities. Such knuckleheads don't need to be spreading their ignorance and hate to our children.

Something New....

...At least for me, that is. Welcome to my completely unknown brand new shiney Blog. Its like having a brand new car in your garage that no one can see or will likely see.

Some back ground on myself up front here (I'll make a bio and other good stuff as soon as I figure out how): I am a lifer in the US Army, currently a senior NCO working full time in the California Army National Guard. I have been deployed twice since 9/11; once stateside and a tour in Iraq. There'll be more on that as this experiment unfolds. My hobbies and interests have been writing, music, modern warfare, computers/computer gaming, history, politics and political discussion. I am a charter member of the VRWC opposed to the mindless, reactionary Leftism that has made the Long March on our cultural institutions and my views will reflect this as time goes on. I will also be learning from fellow readers as I post up whatever interests me. Fun times as who knows what this blog will become if it doesnt die due to my time being eaten up by Life. We shall see...
