June 6, 1944: Souviens-Toi

US GIs Marching to the Docks June 1944

70 years ago today, thousands of Allied men crossed the English Channel to land on the beaches of Normandy to help defeat European fascism. 

Anyone with a passing general knowledge of history knows about D-Day and its significance – the war was over less than a year later. This montage of then-and-now images published by the Guardian is simply incredible

Less well-known in the US is the fate of the French town of Oradour-sur-Glane. On June 10, 1944, the town was under the control of Vichy France.  That day, a German Panzer division massacred 642 men, women, and children – most of them shot and then burned alive in the town church – for no known reason. It’s suspected that the massacre was in retaliation for the killing of some German soldiers in the area (possibly in another town also named “Oradour”) by the French resistance. 

The French government left the town as it stood on that day. It is a monument to the relentlessly brutal German occupation, and to the innocent victims of Naziism. 

A Peugeot allegedly belonging to the town doctor stands where it was parked as the doctor arrived back to town from a house call just as the round-up of villagers began.

    If Oradour and the church-burning sounds familiar, it may be via the movie THE PATRIOT, which relocates that atrocity to the American Revolution and lays it at the feet of the British villain. I always found that scene deeply distasteful in its disrespect to the real history.

    My late father landed at Normandy, fought in the Battle of the Bulge, and received the Bronze Star and Silver Star for his service. He was also anti-war and opposed the Vietnam War as well as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He often said those that glorified war were not there or just were not right.

        http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0884893.html

        1993 (Feb.): Bombing of World Trade Center (WTC); 6 killed.

        1993 (Oct.): Killing of U.S. soldiers in Somalia.

        1996 (June): Truck bombing at Khobar Towers barracks in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, killed 19 Americans.

        1998 (Aug.): Bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania; 224 killed, including 12 Americans.

        1999 (Dec.): Plot to bomb millennium celebrations in Seattle foiled when customs agents arrest an Algerian smuggling explosives into the U.S.

        2000 (Oct.): Bombing of the USS Cole in port in Yemen; 17 U.S. sailors killed.

        2009 (April): on April 6 in Baghdad, a series of six attacks kills 36 people and injure more than 100 in Shiite neighborhoods; April 23: at least 80 people are killed in three separate suicide bombings in Baghdad. This is the largest single-day death toll due to attacks since February 2008. One of the bombings is reportedly set off by a female, who was standing among a group of women and children receiving food aid.

        2009 (Dec.): A Nigerian man on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit attempted to ignite an explosive device hidden in his underwear. The explosive device that failed to detonate was a mixture of powder and liquid that did not alert security personnel in the airport. The alleged bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, told officials later that he was directed by the terrorist group al-Qaeda. The suspect was already on the government’s watch list when he attempted the bombing; his father, a respected Nigerian banker, had told the U.S. government that he was worried about his son’s increased extremism.

        2009 (Dec.): A suicide bomber kills eight Americans civilians, seven of them CIA agents, at a base in Afghanistan. It’s the deadliest attack on the agency since 9/11. The attacker is reportedly a double agent from Jordan who was acting on behalf of al-Qaeda.

        2010 (Oct.): Two packages are found on separate cargo planes. Each package contains a bomb consisting of 300 to 400 grams (11-14 oz) of plastic explosives and a detonating mechanism. The bombs are discovered as a result of intelligence received from Saudi Arabia’s security chief. The packages, bound from Yemen to the United States, are discovered at en route stop-overs, one in England and one in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. A week after the packages are found, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) takes responsibility for the plot.

        2011 (Jan.): Two Frenchmen are killed in Niger. France highly suspects the al-Qaeda Organization in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).

        2011 (Jan.): Four suicide bombings occur in Iraq between January 18-20. At least 137 people are killed and 230 are injured. Al-Qaeda is suspected in all four bombings.

        2011 (April): Men claiming to be Moroccan members of AQIM appear on the internet and threaten to attack Moroccan interests. The following week a bomb killing 15 people, including 10 foreigners, explodes in Marrakesh, Morocco.

        2012 (Summer): Over the summer of 2012, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Ansar Dine, another radical Islamist group, take advantage of the instability and an increasingly weak military in Mali and capture Timbuktu, Kidal, and Gao, cities in the north. They implement and brutally enforce Shariah, or Islamic law. They also destroy many ancient books and manuscripts and vandalized tombs, saying that worshipping saints violates the tenets of Islam. The Islamists continue to stretch their area of control into the fall, prompting concern that legions of Islamists will gather and train in northern Mali and threaten large swaths of Africa. ECOWAS begins planning a military action to reclaim the north from the Islamists.

        2012 (Sept.): Militants armed with antiaircraft weapons and rocket-propelled grenades fire upon the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other embassy officials. U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton says the U.S. believes that al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, a group closely linked to al-Qaeda, orchestrated the attack.

        2013 (Jan.): Militants push into the southern part of Mali, crossing into the area controlled by the government. France sends about 2,150 troops to Mali to push them back. By the end of January, French troops push the militants out of Gao and Timbuktu, forcing them back to northern Mali. Soldiers from other African nations are also deployed to Mali to aid in the effort and will take a more active role in both combat and training Malian troops once France withdraws from Mali.

        2013 (Jan. 16): Islamic militants enter neighboring Algeria from Mali and take dozens of foreign hostages at the BP-controlled In Amenas gas field. Algerian officials say the militants are members of an offshoot of al-Qaeda called Al Mulathameen and are acting in retaliation for France’s intervention in Mali. On Jan. 17, Algerian troops storm the complex and attack the kidnappers. By the end of the standoff on Jan. 20, 29 militants and 37 hostages are killed. Three Americans are among the dead.

        2013 (April 15): Multiple bombs explode near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Two bombs go off around 2:50 in the afternoon as runners finish the race. Three people are killed and more than 170 people are injured. Three days later, the FBI releases photos and video of two suspects in the hope that the public can help identify them. Just hours after the FBI releases the images, the two suspects rob a gas station in Central Square then shoot and kill a MIT police officer in his car. Afterwards, the two men carjack a SUV and tell the driver that they had set off the explosions at the marathon. Police pursue the vehicle into Watertown. During the shootout, a MBTA officer is shot and one of the suspects, identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, age 26, is killed. A suicide vest is found on his body. The other suspect, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, age 19, remains at large for several hours, causing a massive manhunt and lockdown for all of Boston, Cambridge, and many other surrounding communities. The manhunt ends the next evening, on April 19, when he is found alive, but seriously injured, hiding in a boat behind a house in Watertown. The two suspects are brothers and had been living together on Norfolk Street in Cambridge. They have lived in the U.S. for about a decade, but are from an area near Chechnya, a region in Russia. While the ongoing investigation so far has shown that the two suspects were not acting with any known terrorist group, evidence suggests they may have learned how to build the bombs online from an affiliate of Al Qaeda in Yemen.

        White House Failed to Protect Benghazi Mission, House Report Concludes

        That’s a crock. The 19 hijackers were in the United States training to be pilots when Bill Clinton was in office. Bill Clinton had ten chances to kill Osama bin Laden between May 1998-May 1999 and did nothing.

        Osama bin Laden declared a fatwah on the United States in 1996 and then committed huge terrorists attacks in Saudi Arabia and in Africa on a total of 4 US embassies.

        This is about Obama and Hillary Clinton’s failures.

        http://www.westernjournalism.com/okeefe-obamas-national-organizers-caught-tape-committing-voter-fraud/

        Percentage of white welfare recipients are 38.8% and black are 39.9%, Hispanics are 15.7%. This is from the US dept of health and human services. In absolute numbers whites would far outnumber blacks and Hispanics. Percentage wise there is a 1% difference Not enough to label blacks and minorities as lazy and welfare dependents.

        May 26, 1998: Bin Laden Promises to Bring Jihad to US

        Bin Laden discusses “bringing the war home to America,” in a press conference from Khost, Afghanistan. [US CONGRESS, 9/18/2002] Bin Laden holds his first and only press conference to help publicize the fatwa he published several months before. Referring to the group that signed the fatwa, he says, “By God’s grace, we have formed with many other Islamic groups and organizations in the Islamic world a front called the International Islamic Front to do jihad against the crusaders and Jews.” He adds later, “And by God’s grace, the men… are going to have a successful result in killing Americans and getting rid of them.” [CNN, 8/20/2002] He also indicates the results of his jihad will be “visible” within weeks. [US CONGRESS, 7/24/2003] Two US embassies will be bombed in August (see 10:35-10:39 a.m., August 7, 1998). Bin Laden sits next to Ayman al-Zawahiri and Mohammed Atef during the press conference. Two Pakistani journalists and one Chinese journalist attends. But event never gets wide exposure because no independent videotaping is allowed (however, in 2002 CNN will obtain video footage of the press conference seized after the US conquered Afghanistan in late 2001). Pakistani journalist Ismail Khan attends and will later recall, “We were given a few instructions, you know, on how to photograph and only take a picture of Osama and the two leaders who were going to sit close by him. Nobody else.” Two sons of Sheikh Omar Abdul-Rahman attend and distribute what they claim is the will or fatwa of their father (see May 1998), who has been sentenced to life in prison in the US. Journalist Peter Bergen will later comment that the significance of the sons’ presence at the press conference “can’t be underestimated” because it allows bin Laden to benefit from Abdul-Rahman’s high reputation amongst radical militants. Bergen also later says the press conference is a pivotal moment for al-Qaeda. “They’re going public. They’re saying, ‘We’re having this war against the United States.’”

        December 4, 1998: Clinton Warned ‘Bin Laden Preparing to Hijack US Aircraft’ Inside US

        Mohammed Shawqui Islambouli.

        Mohammed Shawqui Islambouli. [Source: Public domain]

        On December 4, 1998, an item in President Clinton’s Presidential Daily Briefing (PDB) is titled, “Bin Laden Preparing to Hijack US Aircraft and Other Attacks.” The PDB says “Bin Laden and is allies are preparing for attacks in the US, including an aircraft hijacking to obtain the release of Sheikh Omar Abdul-Rahman, Ramzi Yousef, and Muhammad Sadiq ‘Awda. One source quoted a senior member of Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya (IG) saying that, as of late October, the IG had completed planning for an operation in the US on behalf of bin Laden, but that the operation was on hold. A senior bin Laden operative from Saudi Arabia was to visit IG counterparts in the US soon thereafter to discuss options-perhaps including an aircraft hijacking.” The same source says bin Laden may implement plans to hijack US aircraft before the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan on December 20 and that two members of the operational team had evaded security checks in a recent trial run at a New York airport. A possible different source says that in late September, Mohammed Shawqui Islambouli, brother of the assassin of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and described in the PDB as an IG leader, was planning to hijack a US airliner during the “next couple of weeks” to free Abdul-Rahman and other prisoners.

        Bill Clinton had 10 chances to capture or kill Osama bin Laden between May 1998-May 1999 did chose NOT to.

        The two clowns are at it again. Isn’t the Buffalo News enough for you 2 liberals?

        Who comes to mind? Let’s see. Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama Jr. who NEVER served in our military. Neither did Tingle boy Chris Matthews of MSNBC who ran away t the Peace Corps and liberals like Jay Leno and David Letterman. BTW that is one ‘Fugly’ azz picture of you old man. Does your beanie come with a propeller to generate electricity? lol You fool. There are about ten old ignorant liberal clowns posting in the news and Sarah isn’t doing her job as a moderator. I reporter her to her editor. She did take some of your posts down which I saw you whine about. Ah, too bad ‘widdle’ liberals. Did you see your dg eating, Koran reading, pot smoking, cocaine snorter Mulllah Obama lift his puny 5 pounds weights to the tune of ‘macho man?’ lol Putin, Assadm King Jung Un are eating Obama’s lunch and Obozo, OVomit, Obummer is the worst president ever. I though weak wimpy Jimmy Carter would be . After all hisi was attacked by a killer rabbit. lol

        That moron Democrat Carter threw the Shah of Iran to the Muslims dogs after we had peace with Iran for 26 years. They repaid Carter by taking 52 Americans hostage for 444 days days and they were released when Ronald Reagan came into office Day one. To stop the spread of Communism in Central America which would have fallen like many more dominoes possible even to Mexico if we had not gotten money to the Contras who fought the Communist Sandinistas. The cowardly Democrats in Congress at the time led by murderer of Mary Jo Kopechne Ted Kennedy blocked all aid to the Contras and something had to be done. Iran fought against Iraq from 1980-1988 and we didn’t want either side to win. Yes, missiles were given to Israel to sell to Iran and the profits went to the fighters against Communism in Central America,thank God. I was in the Persian Gulf in 1983-1984 and it was nasty with Iran. They tried to attack my guided missile destroyer USS Lawrence in the Straits of Hormuz Feb. 28th 1984 AP and UPI story US destroyed fired at Iranian aircraft as tensions rise in the Persian Gulf. The USS Stark got his by accident by an Iraqi jet. Two us warships hit Iranian mines and the guided missile cruiser fought off Iranian fast patrol ships who fired upon them. An Iranian Airbus was hit. Why did Iran fly a civilian plane right into hostilities? We sunk or damaged 3 Iranian frigates and a destroyer shot up an oil platform mused as a missile firing base. I did my job as a Firecontrolman. I lost a child on that cruise and almost my wife as well during the poor care by Naval hospital Portmouth. My wife should have been back to Buffalo. Then my golden lab puppy was run over and killed by a speeding ar and my friends tried to save her by taking her too the vet. Some punks kids must have run through my moms yard and left the gate open. I served my country honorable for ten years until I became injured on active duty. My family and I paid the price. I still suffer the physical and mental wounds from that time. My dad served in WW II in the Army Air Corps. He got sick at age 44 and died 5 years later sick in bed because the A did jack squat to help him. Left was my dads 43 year old wife and his 11 year old boy(me). So we all paid. I’m so sick of hearing about Obama. He disgusts me and it has NOTHING to do with his skin color.

        Obama may be the racist one as he called his own grandmother “Toots” a racist because she was afraid of a large group of black men standing on the street corner. That’s common sense. Obama’s white grandparents are the people who brought Obama up as his lying, adultering, bigamist, drunken father dumped Obama ate age 2 and later died driving drunk in Kenya. His white mother “Stanley” was atheist hippie, dippie freak who loved black Muslim men and then got real fat and ugly fast. That’s why you only see the one picture of her holding Obozo.

        SOME OF OBAMA’S CLOSEST ASSOCIATIONS!

        1. Bill Ayers (Terrorist)

        2. Tom Ayers (Radical)

        3. Van Jones (Former Green Jobs Czar, Communist)

I will revel in your certain defeat come this November and again in 2016. We will rebuild all the damage and 7-10 trillion dollar debt Obama will leave us. We will get rid of Obamacare which the CBO now says won’t save us any money. The Obama lies of if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. If you like your health insurance you can keep your health insurance. OBAMA LIES! You make sure your fat, ugly mustached buddie Rick gets to see this.

    Saul David Alinsky(January 30, 1909 – June 12, 1972) was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing.

    He is often noted for his book, “Rules for Radicals”. From that book here are Saul’s thoughts on how to create a social state:

    There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a socialist state. The first is the most important.

    1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people

    2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

    3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more

    poverty.

    4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

    5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

    6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

    7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

    8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to

    (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    The Carter Doctrine was a policy proclaimed by President of the United States Jimmy Carter in his State of the Union Address on January 23, 1980, which stated that the United States would use military force if necessary to defend its national interests in the “Persian Gulf.”

    It was a response to the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, and was intended to deter the Soviet Union—the United

    States’ Cold War adversary—from seeking hegemony in the Gulf.

    The following key sentence, which was written by Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter’s National Security Adviser, concludes the section:

    Let our position be absolutely clear: An attempt by any outside force to gain control of the Persian Gulf region will be regarded as an assault on the vital interests of the United States of America, and such an assault will be repelled by any

    means necessary, including military force.

    I am disgusted by the fact that I have had to delete about 15 comments in this thread, and to close it prematurely.
