Pvt. Lisa Gregory-Breen of recruit Bravo Company 068-02 last week embarked on her first steps toward her career as a professional war fighter in the U.S. Army. She joins the other young women of Bravo Co. who represent a constitutional directive that boasts 1.96 million other service members and citizen soldiers who stand ready to do violence on behalf of our republic so the rest of us 303 million Americans may sleep peaceably at night.
Do the math folks. It’s a big responsibility with too few willing to hump that pack. It would be nice if Mr. Obama would recognize and act upon that. He’s looking like four more years of Donald Rumsfeld every day. Mr. Obama seems to pursue victory in his “War of Necessity” like a dog chasing a car. It seems that he wouldn’t know what to do with it if he actually caught it!
I get to say with a lot of pride that Pvt. Lisa Gregory-Breen joins my father, son, grandfathers, great-grandfathers, several uncles, cousins, my old Navy shipmates and myself as military kindred.
It’s obvious that the women of Bravo Co. 068-02 have a bigger set of gonads than most of the granola-eaters that swarm Whole Foods pimping petitions from Amnesty International about women’s rights. Lisa finds it incomprehensible that the fair weather feminists and their Beta-males of Code Pink can’t seem to wrap their collectivist panties around the idea that 11-year-old Afghani girls being married off to 50 year-old “moderate Talibani” men to cook, clean, sew and provide concupiscent comfort is more reprehensible than anything Glenn Beck says.

She wants to stop the Taliban from sexually mutilating young girls because corrupted jihadi theology dictates that “Allah says so.”
Lisa wants Afghani women to enjoy the same rights that she enjoys. War’s not the answer, you say? Folks, if Democrats had won the Civil War, we’d still have slaves.
But President Half-Measures thinks he can negotiate with the “moderate Taliban.” He should check his big book from Narcissists Anonymous about the success of politically expedient “half-measures.” Is it an inconvenient truth that Mr. Obama has directed more taxpayer-funded vitriol at a cable news station than he has dedicated against the Taliban? Senior White House advisors Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett have spent more time castigating Fox News in the last 90 days than say anything that the terrorists might find offensive.
Lisa finds it offensive that Afghani women have taken to immolating themselves to escape abusive marriages to “moderate Talibani.” She signed a petition back in the 1990s for Afghani women’s rights when…
