I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

has been a big point of contention for the military. We got Tazer certified on my second deployment when I did detainee ops for about two months, but then we had to put the tazers up. I think the problem is the availability of information today. Sure, "the people have the right to know", but gruesome pictures and videos make people second-guess what we do, so less-lethal systems are invented to make people happy, when the threat of death is what is needed to keep people in line. It may sound brutal, but it's the way of things in a world of people who only know force. It shouldn't be our place to change their culture, but we damn sure seem to be trying.

Huh?

I didn't read the whole article, what am I missing?

The subject line sums up the article. Please all, if I use expressions you don't understand shout at me I'm Welsh and we don't speak English very well I speak a form of Anglo Saxon, and I'm venting....it's a bad day.

In relation to the non-lethal wepons, it really annoys me that the do-gooders say 'you musn't hurt the darlings' when they have just tried to shoot you or taken a swing at you and called you all the insults under G-ds green earth', why do we have to play nice when they are allowed to do what the hell they like and get away with it. You don't want to know the insults I've had as a white woman from the Afghani and Pakistani extremists, and after I finished the job I was on they tracked me down to a different country and the same ones started it again. Non-lethal wepons are seen as soft and if anything cause more attacks on troops in certain theatre's.

What a lot of people who have never dealt with these darlings don't understand is, they hate us, they want to kill us, and we are made to look weak because in their culture strength is all, unless you use extreme violence and become the ultimate Alpha Male then you get walked on, playing nice doesn't work but rules and do-gooders who have no idea about the real world that we have worked in say you must mollycoddle them which means we loose all authority. And when questioning especially the adolesent males boy does that cause problems, you really want to be 'forceful' because you get so frustrated when you ask a question and you get that blank 'no one at home' look, you just want to mangle them just to get a reaction.And then they give one answer which changes the next time you ask 7 seconds later...oooh. And then they go into a spheel about how the Muslims are only fighting against the injustice that their brothers and sisters are suffering in Kashmir or Palestine.

Is it just us that understands the fact that lethal force wepons are the only ones that work when dealing with Jihadists/Extremists or whateve you want to call them or are do-gooders from a different planet?

You sound as like you speak from a wealth of experience. The Islamic/Muslim/Jihadist/Al Qaeda ad nauseum are a backwards religious culture that the American Liberal would rail against if they were Christians. I don't know how supposedley intelligent people can not see this.
The liberals in the US have stepped over the line and in my estimation are now Socialists. I fear for my country. The politicians are now the masters and we are the slaves.
I look forward to your posts and hope people will heed your sage advice, because it sounds as if you have lived it.
I just posted a column by Bo Geist on here.
It so parallels what you are saying.
Keep up the good work, we need you here!

Thank you

Thank you Sam for your kind words, oh yes I have a lot of experiance of this wonderful group of Salafi's over 10 years, but my knowledge is specific to Pakistan, some Afganistani Pashtuns in the Mirpur and Mirpurpuri region of Azad Kashmir. I'll admit ask me about some other versions of Islam as used in Africa and I don't have a clue.

My direct experiance is also in Jihadist Organised Crime in the UK, drugs, company, charity and other financial frauds, people trafficking including baby farming.

I'll read that article next that you referred to and I hope I'm not talking out of turn or about to upset anyone but one of the reasons the UK fell into Islamic control had a lot to do with a group called Common Purpose, I really hope the same thing does not happen in the US because my family were hoping to settle in the US when/or if we are allowed to leave the UK.

all you have to do is get a tan, get to mexico and then walk across the border into the USA. I live just 60 kliks from Mexico in Southern Arizona. It is estimated that we have 12 to 20 million illegal Mexican aliens in this country, that is like 18% of our population. The Democrats want to legalize them all ans voila they have 20 million more voters.
We know nothing of these aliens other than alot are criminals escaping mexican Justice. Calif and Arizona jails and prisons are loaded with them.
They come here with gang affiliations and murderous ways. But our esteemed press lists them as "undocumented workers"
As we say here, Joke em if they can't take a fuck!

What the Democrats are planning with the amnesty is exactly what the British Labour Party did with the Islamics in the UK and it was paid by getting their votes and the associated voter fraud that went with it which meant that any MP's or Councillors who promised the Islamics things got voted in. I hope you dont mind if I put three links as this will explain better than anything else

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/politics/article3828322.ece
http://www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk/yearinreview/October-2008-Public-figu...
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/cambridgeshire/7335364.stm

The last two links are associated to people I was involved in gathering intelligence on who are involved in Islamic terrorist funding, one of those who shopped them was a political rival of theirs whose crime gang was involved in the murder of a boy called Ross Parker and this same guy was paid by the police by putting him on the polices ruling body called a Police Authority.

Illegals + Politicians = Election Fraud

You need to beware that this level of election fraud will become the norm in the US

Amen Sister Kerry

I would like to make you Minister of Islamic Information. God this country needs you. You could disseminate your first hand knowledge to the masses. Oh how will we be able to do that since the Liberal Media is to busy with the Messiahs new dog stories.
Well how about Fox News, the only one we have and the liberals want it banned.

Wish I could oblige

I would never be allowed to speak out.

I'm on a list of people who have what's called a DA Notice attached to them so the press cannot print anything I say neither can any TV channel. My children and I are not allowed passports to leave the UK/Ireland and I have to report my movements to the Garda (Irish Police) incase the British government want me arrested and returned to the UK, which they tried one but did not suceed in doing, as according to the British Government in the person of Harry Carberry vice-Consul of the British Embassy in Dublin we have information and could campaign against 'The British Establishment'. The claim is that if anything I say is published it will interfere with ongoing terrorist investigations, which is incorrect it's because I have information on my old bosses and documents that they don't want in the public domain because it show why the British Government isn't co-operating with the US and Isreali Governments in relation to the tracing of Islamic financing and facilitation of Islamic attacks around the world especially on US troops in Afghanistan.

I'm not the only person in this position my ex-boss Pete Marshall from the Home Office and other ex-government employees who have information that the present UK government does not want in the public domain. It's bad in the UK.

How can they do this? Have you been convicted of a crime?
The American people need to know about this!

Good video, would be better with sub-titles for us Colonials.
The facts like this never get to America. The American liberals see Europe as the Garden of Eden, because they never see what is really going on. Thank you and please feel free to post any and all, so we might educate.

Given that I and my children were born in the UK and I served in the British Army I feel a bit bad by saying that the UK should be written off but the US should for it's security and allies in the war against the Islamic Extremists perhaps look to the EU countries like Spain and some of the newer EU Eastern European Countries as they are really working hard to stop the problem and to put some form of halt to extremist expansion.
