For the last couple of days, prior to Thanksgiving, I was finishing up my book research by watching new Netflix movies based on different soldier groups stationed in Afghanistan over the last 13-years. I had found it extremely interesting in how there were so many area of commonality between that war and my war in Vietnam. Profanity is sure the same, and the brotherhood of fellow soldiers sharing the that unbreakable bond forged in fire and blood, has not changed. I tend to believe it was this way for my in Korea and my Grandpa in World War Two.
But this has given me additional ammo for the writing of this story. I am beginning Chapter 4, where a major Taliban attack is imminent and my two U.S. Army 101st Airborne Companies are receiving their orders to move down toward the Khyber Pass. The main roadway has been blown apart by the Taliban, in an unusual show of power, and Intelligence is reporting the enemy is using Anthrax.
Now back to the real word, here's some news soundbites to make you shake your head in wonder:
Patriot News: Denver County Sheriff's Office has been fined $10,000.00 by the Department of Justice, because they refused to hire non-U.S. Citizens-immigrants as Sheriff Deputies. ( The job application like nearly almost all police office, county Sheriff Department and State Trooper, have a square to be marked showed you are a U.S. Citizen. These men are carrying weapons, working alongside other police officers, who want to know these men or women have been checked out. Now, the Department of Justice, who until very recently had the same box to be marked. The Sheriff's Department was advised to go back two years and review their job applications and see who should have been reviewed closer on their merit, had that box not been there. But I am sorry, this one is wrong. The DOJ should not be leaping into local, county and state law enforcement, for these are the protectors of the people and how long will it go before the first police officer is shot in the back by his partner?)
Gatestone Institute: in Dec 1991, the UN General Assembly voted to repeal the UN Resolution passed in 1975 that declared , "Zionism is a form of Racism." Now these latest efforts by the Muslims to lay claim to all the Israeli Holy Sites, with the assistance of UNESCO , a scandal has developed. Some feel Putin is using UNESCO to assist the Muslims in stirring-up trouble in Jerusalem. Using an UN Organization which-supposedly, according to their own charter in devoted to work without prejudice to the preservation of historical records. But now, by its own statements, it has sided against the Jewish Nation.
*Muslim denial of the Jewish links to the Holy sites and the City of Jerusalem, and their ancestral rights over Judea , and Samaria, or Palestine, is ironically contrary to their Word of God (Allah),as printed in their Koran or Quran. Supposedly, in their scripture 2:47, Mohamad says, "Remember those blessings of mine (Allah) with which I graced you, an how I favored you above all other people." (He was said to be speaking to Mohammad about the Jewish people.)
* UNESCO: United Nations Educational , Scientific and Cultural Organization- met in Paris, France on October, 2016
resolution "Occupied Palestine" orchestrated by Arabs and Muslim member states in another attempt to diminish links with Jerusalem. This resolution passed, despite Israel's opposition.10 countries voted in favor, 2 against and 8 abstentions.
* UNESCO became a firm supporter of the 1975 UN Declaration that "Zionism equals Racism". So, in October 2016 UNESCO pointedly ignored the Biblical Jewish connection to two of the most holiest sites in Jerusalem for the Jewish people- Temple Mound and West Wall, which both predate Islam by hundreds of years.
Washington Free Beacon: Japanese Intelligence tells the U.S. Pentagon - China engaged in multi-year takeover attempt of Senkaku Islands. Tokyo spy agency warns Beijing also bolstering forces for military control of oil shipping routes.
Telegraph- News- UK: Japan vows to respond to "serious" Russian missile deployment to disputed islands as Kremlin revives 'nuclear trains' weapons.
Telegraph-UK: Jewish Students Accuse Cambridge University of Hushing-up anti-Semitic Attack on Campus. 3 Jewish college students entering a public college facility came upon a large gathering of students. When they turned around to leave, the other student recognized the Jewish head-ware and this group, known as the Cambridge University Drinking Society, grabbed the Jewish students forcibly, based the 3 kid's statements, began physically abusing them, choking one student with his own scarf until he was fighting for oxygen. Thru the attack they were assaulted with anti-Semitic racial remarks of the worst kind. It was learned that the Drinking Society belonged to Christ's College, inside Cambridge, who at first hesitated an investigation. But when they did do one, they identified only 3 young men as being offender, who all said they did not make any racial remarks in an anti-Semitic form. Christ College refused to identify the 3 kids who was looked at. All three Jewish young men believe that Cambridge and Christ College failed to protect them and do a through investigation.
Last night I was at Salvation Army in Kenai, feeling abandoned as Mona went to pick up Susan, who was at Elizabeth's Bead Store. I had this lady who worked there moving items back and forth to the shelves and heard her voice, which had a strong Germanic accent. I've been following the European Union nearly every day and I began our conversation, "How long have you been over here in the US?" I could tell from the look in her eyes she felt attacked.
"No, I apologize, for I am a third-generation German and a German-Jew, and I was curious how you can tell me your feeling over what's occurring in the European Union?" That broke the ice completely. She stood beside my kart and we talked for 30-minutes or more. She was fluent in our tongue prior to meeting her future Army husband. They came home, but the marriage didn't last after he got out of the service ( no further details), but she spent (8) years in the U.S. Coastguard to get her Green Card, which she was so proud of and then became a police officer. Now she was old, that's what she said. But she said men in women even in Alaska, which surprised me, would hear here strong Germanic voice and shout at her to go "Go Home!". When I asked her how she felt about PM Merkel in Germany, she pulled no punches, "She should be dismembered." She hated her what hell she has brought to the EU. She now refuses to even visit back home to Germany for fear of being attacked and hurt by Muslim gangs.
Just thought I'd share that. Remember, unless your an American Native- we are all immigrants. But we have learned to work with each other, accept one another and let our various religions grow. Islam, through its fanatics, does not allow for that. But at one point there were other American religions in our history who attacked others, ones who failed to join them.
Sometime in the next couple years I plan to write a novel concerning "The Mountain Meadows Massacre". For now, enough said about it, but some family members on both sides of I and Mona's family know how this concerns them. Now it is part of U.S. History.
All for now, God Bless. BILL
