Nothing Left, to Say...

Those of you that have been with me for awhile know that sometimes I take the time to make an observation about a particular date. Today is one of those days. You see folks, today marks the 62nd anniversary of the saving of millions of lives. Though you won't hear that particular take on it in any media coverage. On August 6, 1945, the United States of America unleashed atomic warfare on Japan in an effort to bring hostilities during WWII to a close. This decision was made by a man I consider to be among the last good democrats, Harry S. Truman. Of course, the American left vilifies the decision and will never concede that the decision to drop the atomic bombs was the correct one. America has never been forgiven by leftists here at home and Eurosocialists abroad for the decision to drop the "big one."

The American left would much rather have seen hundreds of thousands of Americans maimed and killed in a horrific invasion of the Japanese homeland. The American left wallows in the might have been's which an American invasion of Japan would have wrought. Starvation, annihiliation and slaughter of civilians. Japanese casualties would probably have never been known and most certainly would have been in the hundreds of thousands or even millions. This is not hypothesis, this is simple extrapolation based on the determined resistance put up by Japanese soldiers and sailors throughout the Pacific. Forget that the dropping of two atomic bombs hastened the close of the war, a war which had already claimed the lives of 400,000 Americans and countless combatants and citizens of other nations. Forget the vast sums of treasure expended fighting the war and the fact that it had already dragged on for 6 years. The American left can find no argument persuasive enough to concede that the decision was correct. I only need to recall that my father, then serving with the U.S. 7th Infantry Division would most probably have seen further service in Japan. He had already been wounded twice, in the Philippines and at Okinawa. Could he have come through the invasion of Japan safely? Fortunately, President Truman made the decision.

And as if we needed any more proof of the left's utter inadequacy in providing for the defense of this great nation, along comes presidential wannabee Barak Hussein Obama, stating conclusively that he would not authorize the release of nuclear weapons under any circumstances. Either he is incredibly naive, an islamic agent (my personal bet) or he is utterly devoid of any grasp of history. As if this poster child for democrat national security measures wasn't enough of a demonstration of the mortal danger of entrusting our welfare to the left, a Clinton appointee judge has determined to undermine our security just a little more. U. S. Justice Florence Marie Cooper has issued an injunction against the U.S. Navy, prohibiting them from using sonar during upcoming maneuvers off the Southern California coast. She cites the potential to harm the environment. You can read the story here.

Folks, while I'm not paying a whole lot of attention yet to the upcoming 2008 election, it remains apparent to me that while I may not be enamored of the Republican party right now, national suicide is the way of the democrats.

Hope you all have been enjoying a wonderful summer. Engaging in urban combat at Disneyland was agony but Monterey was as beautiful as ever, once you got past the Hillary and Obama bumper stickers on cars. At least they still turn out great seafood. Of course visiting the familia in the old homestead was beautiful and relaxing. That said, I took a moment out to reflect on the first morning back. I was out feeding the horses early and I looked up at a sky that could only have been painted by God. I looked around at brown and purple mountains and a 3/4 moon shining down on the desert below with a sun blossoming behind Spanish Peak. I breathed clean desert air and listened to the sounds of....Nevada at dawn....and I thanked that good ol' Boy who painted that sky, that I was back home again.
