Many of my readers are familiar with the Daily News from Iran which is written by Dr. Zin. I have learned why we have not heard from him recently or seen any news on his site. It appears that they have frozen his site because he could not afford to keep running it without our contributions. Well, I’m not going to sit by and allow this to happen. Unfortunately, I am not rich. The total he needs is over $1000. I am going to be contributing $15. It may be small, but it will help. If we all give $15, it will only take 70 people to help get wonderful site back up and running. Remember how much information he brought to us? I believe he deserves this help. If you would like to heop, you may donate by PayPal (I don’t have the address) or at this address:

Thank you.

I have several articles and videos from John over at Stop the ACLU that you may have missed. Here they are ones I kept:

Many of you know that I have been following a ‘moderate’ Muslim and what he has to say. I believe we should give him a chance, while others are not open to this idea. It is a decision that is totally up to you. I do, however, have a few articles from him if you are interested (and even if you’re not! lol). Here is an article written by Frank Gaffney: CAIR-TV on September 5, 2007 concerning CAIR.

One of my favorite radio hosts and authors has written another marvelous article entitle, “10 “Inconvenient” Questions for Al Gore and His Fellow Man Made Global Warming Believers. Wow. This is a must read.

Another good friend of mine lives in Japan. He was in television forum to discuss Japan’s pacifist constitution. Here are some of the things he wished he had time to discuss, seeing as it was hard enough to get a word in edgewise! lol Postscript of NHK Forum 1: Japan Has to Be a Pretty Boy in the Middle East? No way! and Postscript of NHK Forum 2: Inseparable Alliance between Japan and the United States. Here are some of the issues that he actually had the opportunity to mention in the forum: Media and Jurists’ Humiliation to the Iraq War and the War on Terror. These are a little long, but they are well worth your time. Besides being important issues, he is a fine writer.

Last, but by no means least, I have two articles from Michael Yon. These are always must reads, so I’ll just say that before I post them. Here they are: A Marine. A Mentor. A Model Approach. and Ghosts of Anbar, Part IV of IV. Michael has also started a channel on YouTube. If you would like to subscribe to it, click here. Then click on the subscribe button right there by Michael’s name.

Well, I guess that’s enough news for a little while. Boy, I can hardly wait for tomorrow…arghh! This is just the news I’ve saved. Oh brother!

This is Saturday, and everyone is probably out having a great time. I hope they are. I received some sad news tonight as I was putting this together, but I am not at liberty to discuss it. All I can do is ask you to continue praying and supporting our men and women in the Armed Forces who are protecting our butts so we can write crap like this that means so little when you realize what we are really facing…this is my open trackback post.

    ALI BASE, Iraq (AFPN) – Approximately 80 Iraqis from the city of An Nasiriyah interacted for the first time with Airmen and Soldiers at the Ziggurat historical monument Aug. 21 at Ali Base.

    It has been more than 10 years since any Iraqi native has been allowed to visit the Ziggurat of Ur, which is the most dominant landmark on Ali Base, because during the reign of Suddam Hussein the installation was used by the Iraqi army.

    The Ziggurat was constructed more than 4,000 years ago by worshipers of the moon god Nanna living near the ancient city of Ur. Rising more than 70 feet above the ground, it is one of the best preserved structures of its type in the world. The life of the Ziggurat is closely tied with the city of Ur itself. Passages in the Bible’s Book of Genesis describe Ur as the starting point of the migration westward to Palestine for the family of Abraham around 1,900 B.C. Ali Base is said to exist alongside the ancient city of Ur.

    After processing through base security, two bus loads of Iraqi families arrived at the Ziggurat greeted by more than 100 Airmen and Soldiers. The families were then led to the top of the Ziggurat where, Sheik Mohammad, the spiritual leader of the group, gathered the families together and while holding the Iraqi flag, they began to sing an Iraqi song. After the song, Sheik Mohammad spoke to the American servicemembers about how long it has been since any Iraqi was able to visit the site and how they respect anyone who respects them and their historical sites.

    “Events like this help the Iraqi people have a positive outlook on Americans,” said Airman 1st Class Robin Lumm, a 407th Expeditionary Communications Squadron small-computer technician who helped coordinated the event. She is deployed here from Tinker Air Force Base, Okla., and a member of the 407th Air Expeditionary Group First Four organization who took on the task of planning and coordinating the visit by the Iraqi families.

    With orphaned children from Ur making up most of the visiting group, the First Four organization decided to donate items for the children. Items such as stuffed animals, toys, soccer balls, school supplies and candy were collected, and after down from the Ziggurat the children were led to a tent filled with the donations. Each child was able to come away with a few items.

    “Events like this improve relations between us and the Iraqi people,” said Staff Sgt. Tracey Cowan, a 407th AEG information manager deployed here from Moody AFB, Ga.

    Afterward, an impromptu game of soccer was started with teams mixed with American servicemembers and Iraqi children.

    “The initial idea came from an Iraqi contractor who works on the installation,” said Senior Master Sgt. Gary Hillman, the 407 Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron first sergeant. “He contacted security forces to see if a visit would be possible. He said he receives a lot of questions from the kids in the city about the American troops and thought it would be great if they could see and interact with them.”

    To cool off from the heat, the visit ended with a water fight as Iraqi children doused their American hosts, and then it quickly turned into a battle — a different kind of battle than the one being fought throughout the country, as this was a friendly battle between new friends.

The Ali AB First Four Council sponsored the visit. This is the first time in more than 10 years that Iraqi civilians have been allowed to step on the grounds of the historical site, which was built in the ancient city of Ur and includes the house of the biblical prophet Abraham.

    If you are going to the Freedom Concert in San Diego on the 26th of July, you may run into Congressman Duncan Hunter who will be making a special appearance! If you haven’t already, you may get your tickets from here.

    It would be great if you could come early and stop by Duncan’s San Diego Headquarters. It would very nice if we could show him our gratitude for the fence that he DID get up, and also show support for his campaign. You could also wear a Hunter for President t-shirt! They are only $30 or a cap which is $20.

    I hope everyone has a very great time. Remember, the true reason for this concert is to honor our Fallen Angels and their children. Don’t let these politics or politicians get in the way of that!

    However, for more information about Duncan Hunter, please call the office at 619-463-3896.

    GO HUNTER!
