6 Days left and $1500 short on the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War graphic novel.  I’m asking my readers and followers to consider giving what you feel you can, even if its just SHARING THE LINK on your social media, blogs, and other pages!  Please help Clayton out with this project!

Clayton worked hard with a number of great creators to publish this to commemorate the sacrifices of a “forgotten” generation of America’s Veterans who served from 1950 to 1953 in the killing fields of Korea securing Liberty south of the 38th Parallel.    Lets NOT forget the Korean War, as its still going on to this day ion one of the longest ceasefires in history!

So, check it out folks!  Clayton has been a big help and mentor for me just being himself, doing his jobs, and juggling with a few graphic novel/fundraising projects as well!  This man’s work deserves our attention!  I also know Clayton is driven by the same passion for this project (more so than myself actually), and that is the impact Korean War Veterans have had on our lives.  They are a quieter and smaller group of Veterans, but in no way any less influential than all the Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Desert Storm, Afghanistan, and Iraq Veterans.  Lets honor these men and women before their generation is gone forever from the living.

Anonymous is an interesting group of people to say the least.  Taking on Internet censorship (something I get a chuckle out of and kinda enjoy seeing), and trying to keep the flow information going.  Sadly though, this leaderless collective sometimes shows just how schizophrenic such organizations can be with regard to core values.  Most especially in the Middle East.

Anonymous is a champion of GLBT issues, yet they support an Arab Spring in which the Muslim Brotherhood is now able act with impunity to execute  homosexuals in Egypt as well as forcing women to wear veils and cease education.  Women’s rights is another thing I suspect this group supports here in the comfort of the free world, while supporting despotic Islamo-Fascists who crush women in the Middle East.  Clearly, they are just support the Islamo-Fascist terrorists as a counter cultural ‘in thing to do’ against the United States.  You don’t get this kind of schizophrenic behavior for nothing; its clearly Unity of Effort with the enemies of the US, pure and simple.

I recall another big deal with Anonymous hating the US GITMO facility due to alleged torture.  They leaked (or supported the WikiLeaks) a lot of classified documents trying to expose ‘systemic torture’ in US military facilities across the Middle East.  Ironically, those documents ended up vindicating and proving that such claims are grossly exaggerated…  But I digress.  They wanted to expose atrocities, war crimes, and the like.  Yes, those things happened (and will happen).  However, here they are taking sides with Hamas in this latest flare up of violence between Israel and Gaza, over ‘brutal treatment’ of the Palestinian people.  Really guys, for all your exposing US atrocities, you refuse to acknowledge Hamas atrocities such as this motorcycle gang dragging an alleged spy down the road?

If you are going to tout some core values against torture and atrocities, you need to expose both sides and call out even your own side.  This is why I support the Court Martial and capital punishment of those responsible for war crimes in the US (or any) military.  How about you go forth and help humanity by exposing all war criminals, including the Palestinians as well as Israelis.  Sadly enough, I have yet to see the amount of real atrocities supposedly committed by the IDF.  Why?  Because there is so much propaganda out there, especially coming from the Palestinian side of the conflict in which actors are used.  Its truly sad to see CNN lose credibility for playing such propaganda videos…  Really, Conservative bloggers shouldn’t be the only ones calling them out, Anonymous should be as well.  If the IDF is committing atrocities, find the real stuff and put it out there.  Stop feeding the world Hamas propaganda feeds like the big name news agencies keep doing.  That, and call YOUR OWN PEOPLE OUT WHEN THEY SCREW UP.  That, or drop the “we don’t forget” from your motto, because obviously your organization does indeed have a selective memory with a bias toward Left wing politics (ironically which are trying just as hard to censor the web as any Right wing side is…).


Fruits of the French Revolution!

Replace one cruel despot with another cruel despot…

So this begins a series critiquing the United Nations stance and activities on various issues.  Yes, the UN has done a great load of good when they have stood aside and just taken statistical data and compiled it.  However, they have done more harm than good since October 1945…  Starting with the Korean War (which is still being fought, just one long ceasefire signed in 1953 thus far!) until now.  So far, what we see in Hati is mostly a unilateral response from the US and our military.  If we waited for the UN to react…  Instead, like in Indonesia after the tsunami, and in Iraq, we have taken action.  In fact, in Iraq, we waited for the UN, waited until they failed to assist and delayed the invasion while doing so until it became apparent that support wouldn’t be there PRIOR to acting in a ‘unilateral’ manner (I seem to recall the U.K. being on board…).
