It's never over. Bush is out of office. Obama is moving to withdraw troops from Iraq. Last October, Code Pink gave up on its daily harangues against the Marines who staff a recruiting office in Berkeley after a counterinsurgency of pro-troops groups stood their ground. But it's never over. Yesterday, thugs smashed the windows of... Read More
Scenes from the counterinsurgency.
They did it! High school students fighting anti-military bigotry in the Bay Area collected 13,600 signatures and submitted them to save the JROTC program in San Francisco.

Counterinsurgency in the Bay Area public schools.
I've been following the battle over the JROTC program in the San Francisco public schools for the last year and a half.

Video of the "Catholic Schoolgirls Against the War" assault on the Holy Name church yesterday: This is absolutely disgusting, and perfectly in keeping with criminal anti-war thuggery. Remember that past protesters--also Catholic-- have actually used their own real blood to vandalize recruitment centers. Guess these idiots in Chicago didn't have the stomach for that, so...

Time warp.
What is it with all these old moonbats resurfacing again? First, Micah Wright. Now, Linda Foley. (Background here.) I feel like I'm trapped in a wayback machine.

Culture of hate.
On Friday, in the wake of the Times Square military recruitment center bombing, I published a special report on the Left's escalating war on recruiters. Prominent liberals and Democrat leaders raised their voices to condemn harassment of recruiters and called on left-wing, anti-military groups and anarchists to stop their hatred. Actually, no. Of course they... Read More

Carty Finkbeiner, the jerk mayor of Toledo, cursed on live radio when asked about his anti-Marines stance. He's always got excuses. This time he says he was "tongue-tied." More likely: Brain-tied.

Semper Fi.
Zombie has published the second in a two-part photo essay on the siege at Berkeley. The pic of the USMC checklist is my favorite:
The domestic consequences of appeasement.
When last we visited the seditious hotbed of Olympia, Washington, anti-military zealots had caused $4,000 in damages to police cars and incurred more than $100,000 in costs after obstructing military shipments at the city port. Well, anarchy reigns again, and you have to wonder how much longer law-abiding citizens there are going to tolerate the... Read More

Unrepentant in Berkeley (Photo credit: Zombie) The pro-Marines protesters came, saw, and conquered in Berkeley last night--despite massive chaos, anarchy, and police neglect.
