Another All Saint’s Day at war for U.S. troops in Afghanistan. God bless them, and may they secure victory before 2014 and return home, hopefully not more than a month so they will be home with victory secured by the end of 2012.

Another weekend at war for U.S. troops. Pray for an American victory, and that our troops can come home soon.

At the same time the US is involved in the Global War on Terror, the GWOT, the President of Egypt resigned yesterday. The people in the streets of Egypt are happy and President Obama is happy, but what comes afterwards? The Muslim Brotherhood?

1.) While the chaos is going on in Egypt a national security official leading the agency no less, does not know that the MUSLIM Brotherhood is a religious organization, mistakenly calling it SECULAR. See story below titled, “Why James Clapper Must Resign.” Link:

While the war drags on in Afghanistan into another month, hotspots around the world are flaring up. Egypt, Jordan, Yemen, and even VMI-Virginia Military Institute. VMI is hosting a “celebration” of the Muslim conquest of Christian Spain! I could barely believe my eyes to read this, but please read it at link #1:

1.) Virginia Military Institute (VMI) sponsors a conference which celebrates the conquest of Spain by Muslims. The list of events, speeches, speakers, etc. appears, at this time, to be very one-sided. Perhaps before they have the conference, they will present a more diverse panel and show how the Muslims treated Christians, and how the Muslims invaded Spain and did not respect cultural diversity of the Christians whose land they invaded. Link:

2.) Diana West’s take on the VMI “East meets West” conference:

http://www.dianawest.net/Home/tabid/36/EntryId/1673/Virginia-Dhimmitary-Institute.aspx

3.) More updates on the VMI controversy, they are now scrubbing the term “celebration” from their we site information on the conference. I also wonder why the word “crossing” instead of “conquest” is listed still? Link:

http://bigpeace.com/pspoole/2011/02/04/vmi-scrubbing-information-on-conference-celebrating-islamic-invasion-and-occupation-of-spain-after-big-peace-report/

4.) Martyrs of Cordoba:

Afghanistan has been eclipsed the last week or so by events in other areas of the GWOT, Egypt, Jordan, Yemen, Tunisia and other countries around the world. God bless US Marine Security Guards at each of the US Embassies in these countries and around the world. God bless our troops in Afghanistan and in war zones around the world.

5.) U.S. troops losing legs and genitals in Afghanistan, propose using silk to stop the injuries. I would suggest that Afghan troops go on the patrols, and US troops be where the drone controllers are in Nevada, and monitor the Afghan troops while safely on a U.S. base in the states. U.S. troops should not be losing legs or genitals.

I have read other stories about this, there is a huge increase of US troops not only losing their legs but their genitals. They were saying that’s the first thing the troops worry about after their legs are blown off if they still have their genitals. It said urology injuries are skyrocketing. The US troops can monitor the ANA progress from the safety of US bases like now, they run drones from Nevada that drop bombs over Pakistan. No US troops should be losing legs or genitals.

From the story:

“Soldiers can lose their legs and genitals and suffer lethal wounds to their abdomens, he said.”

While the US troops are in Afghanistan, it seeks the hotspot of the day is in Egypt.

There is unrest on the streets of Cairo shown the last several days on American television.

Yesterday there were photos of Egyptians on horses and camels riding through the town square, some riders were pulled off and beaten, and some reports said some of the horses were injured or killed, it was a sad sight all around. It’s a mystery I think, to many Americans, as to what is going on.

I will post some articles which try to explain it, and I still don’t know if I understand it all. It sure is a GWOT out there though! God bless our troops around the world.

There are U.S. Marines at Embassies around the world, including in Egypt, serving as Marine Security Guards, and other countries are in unrest now too including Yemen, Jordan, and Tunisia. God bless all our Marine Security Guards around the world, and God bless the USA.

6.) Indonesian police sent to secure New Year’s celebration’s in Indonesia. I am thinking that the Indonesian military and/or police should be sent to secure Afghanistan–they are Muslim and would be more well suited than American and NATO to handle the situation in Afghanistan. It is worth a try as the NATO and American troops, after 10 years, have not brought security to Afghanistan. It might be worth a try to bring Indonesian police to Egypt, as again, they are Muslims, and could control the riots and provide security to Egypt too. Link:
