Credit Due: President Bush continues to keep us safe

Cross posted at the Partisan Report

With Mumbai attacks fresh on everyones mind and, if anything positive can be made of it, maybe it will be a jarring eye opener of just what is at stake with the war on the West. But one constant theme has been played through it all from the Bush administration and that theme has been a very proactive, security first, bad guys last, approach to national security.

An American President

The Defense Department announced that 20,000 uniformed U.S. military troops will be trained and operating in the United States by 2011 to assist local authorities against possible terrorist attacks and other catastrophes. This is a measure that the President Bush as been pushing for a few years now.

The Pentagon's plan calls for three rapid-reaction forces to be ready for emergency response by September 2011. The first 4,700-person unit, built around an active-duty combat brigade based at Fort Stewart, Ga., was available as of Oct. 1, said Gen. Victor E. Renuart Jr., commander of the U.S. Northern Command.


The concern is that civilian authorities may not be able to adequately respond to nuclear/chemical catastrophes or a coordinated assault using advanced and high-powered weaponry. The carnage that unfolded before our teary eyes in India amplifies those concerns. There are just too many that refuse to acknowledge the seriousness and the deadliness of the war against civilizations. These weaklings on the left want to reason, share the blame, and excuse the murderous acts and ignore the climbing body count of innocent non-muslims.

The critics of the bill, mainly ACLU, cite issues with the protective measure that the President is putting into place. They say it undermines the the Posse Comitatus Act, a 130-year-old federal law that restricts the military's role in domestic law enforcement.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the libertarian Cato Institute are troubled by what they consider an expansion of executive authority.

Domestic emergency deployment may be "just the first example of a series of expansions in presidential and military authority," or even an increase in domestic surveillance, said Anna Christensen of the ACLU's National Security Project. And Cato Vice President Gene Healy warned of "a creeping militarization" of homeland security.

"There's a notion that whenever there's an important problem, that the thing to do is to call in the boys in green," Healy said, "and that's at odds with our long-standing tradition of being wary of the use of standing armies to keep the peace."

McHale stressed that the response units will be subject to the act, that only 8 percent of their personnel will be responsible for security and that their duties will be to protect the force, not other law enforcement. For decades, the military has assigned larger units to respond to civil disturbances, such as during the Los Angeles riot in 1992.


The liberal drivel and cooky paranoia shared by these types really shows their ignorance and refusal to accept the reality that has been dumped in our laps. By assigning an active combat brigade to northern command does not transform our country into a police state. The measure simply calls for a more robust response force to those units already assigned for that duty. It allows the planners and officials of Homeland Security the luxury of having a better capability to get to a situation and supply relief, support and, if need be, an overwhelming force in case of a coordinated attack in one of our U.S. cities.

The country doesn't have the stomach to watch another Katrina-like disaster unfold. Accept, the next disaster won't be mother nature's doing. The threat is real. The bad guys are out there. They aim to target, rape, torture, mangle, kill and control the lives of the West. We need to provide the necessary planning that will prevent any chance of sharing the same fate that unjustly fell on our Indian, Jewish, Christian, Hindu, British, American brother and sisters.

It is past time we come to from out of our stupor. The game is real and they already started playing.

Posse Comitatus Act, yeah real great act. If it wasn't for the military intervening on the Gulf Coast, nothing would have gotten done in the initial phases.

The Fall of Rome will be possible again, and a King of America may rise. Fucking anti-Americans.

Yep, and the barbarians are at the gates.

Their raiding, murdering, and pillaging Rome as we speak. And the Roman are too fat, spoiled, and neglectful of their history and traditions that allowd them to be the greatest empire in the first place.

We are fatted calfs just as they were. We've been told for a long time now not to be proud of our accomplishments. They came off of the exploitation of millions. We've been told not to be proud of our history because it shares similarities with that of other tyrannical regimes.

I would say it has all worked out pretty nicely for our enemies. We don't even have the stomach to denounce terror and call murder for what it is.

Boris,

You are welcomed to express your opines all you want. No matter how stupid, rhetoric filled, populist, thoughtless, depraved, foolish, ignorant, idiotic, moronic, and shortsighted as they are. Minor vulgarity will be tolerated as politics is a passionate subject. However, any further usage of "fuck" and I will remove your post. You sound like an ignorant fool, more so than normal, when you digress to that level and it will not be tolerated. Thank you.

They were always at the gates.

"Their raiding, murdering, and pillaging Rome as we speak. And the Roman are too fat, spoiled, and neglectful of their history and traditions that allowd them to be the greatest empire in the first place."

Rome didn't fall because of attacks from without. It fell because Caesar moved into it with a legion.

"On January 10, 49 BC Caesar crossed the Rubicon with one legion, the Legio XIII Gemina. The Rubicon marked the boundary between the Roman province of Cisalpine Gaul to the north and Italy proper to the south, and Roman law forbade any general from crossing it with an army. The purpose of the law was to protect the republic from internal military threat. Caesar's action thus marked the beginning of the civil war."

Fine. If you really think the F-word is much different than stupid, rhetoric filled, populist, thoughtless, depraved, foolish, ignorant, idiotic, moronic, and shortsighted anti-Americans, then I won't use it.

Boris the Republic fell as evident form your wikipedia search. However, Rome endured which is what I was referring to.

Rome did fall and in exactly the way I described. It was sacked because they forgot how they became so mighty in the first place. They were weaklings for a brutal enemy who knew exactly what he wanted.

It fell, Boris. It fell in the 5th century.

Rome feel for many reasons, including the reasons discussed in these comments.

LoozianaJay, I would have to agree with you about them forgetting, but I would like to add something. They did forget how they became so popular, and some of the ways they became so mighty were not reasons that anyone should be too proud of. So yes, they did forget. They neglected to understand their history in order to fully and logically reason their position at the time and to where they would/could go in the future.

Like too many people of today, we tend to forget our history so we can provide proper reason, in society, to continually progress and prosper.

But, then again, this might be to "conservative" of a response?

Yup, and it fell because of the internal strife within, exacerbated by the legion within Rome.
