DON'T KNOW THIS GUY OR IF HIS IS EVEN REAL, BUT I LIKE THE ARTICLE THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE.
SPEECH BY GEN. HAWLEY
USAF 4 STAR SPEAKS OUT

For those of you who don't know who General Hawley is, he is a newly
retired 4-star general who commanded Air Combat Command. Speech from
the former ACC commander (now retired and not restricted to being
politically
correct), Gen Hawley:

"Since the attack, I have seen, heard, and read thoughts of such
surpassing stupidity that they must be addressed. You've heard them too.

Here they are:

1) "We're not good, they're not evil, everything is relative." Listen
carefully: We're good, they're evil, nothing is relative. Say it with me
now and free yourselves. You see, folks, saying "We're good" doesn't
mean, "We're perfect." Okay? The only perfect being is the bearded guy
on the| ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The plain fact is that our
country
has, with all our mistakes and blunders, always been and always will be
the greatest beacon of freedom, charity, opportunity, and affection in
history. If you need proof, open all the borders on Earth and see what
happens. In about half a day, the entire world would be a ghost town,
and the United States would look like one giant line to see "The
Producers".

2) "Violence only leads to more violence." This one is so stupid you
usually have to be the resident of an Ivy League university to say it.
Here's the truth, which you know in your heads and hearts already:
Ineffective, unfocused violence leads to more violence. Limp, panicky,
half-measures lead to more violence. However, complete, fully
thought-through, professional, well-executed violence never leads to
more
violence because, you see, afterwards, the other guys are all dead.
That's right, dead. Not "on trial," not "reeducated," not "nurtured back
into the bosom of love." Dead. D-E --Well, you get the idea.

3) "The CIA and the rest of our intelligence community has failed us."
For 25 years we have chained our spies like dogs to a stake in the
ground, and now that the house has been robbed, we yell at them for not
protecting us. Starting in the late seventies, under Carter appointee
Stansfield Turner, the giant brains who get these giant ideas decided
that the best way to gather international intelligence was to use spy
satellites. "After all," they reasoned, "you can see a license plate
from
200 miles away." This is very helpful if you've been attacked by a
license plate.

Unfortunately, we were attacked by humans. Finding humans is not
possible with satellites. You have to use other humans. When we bought
all our satellites, we fired all our humans, and here's the really
stupid
part. It takes years, decades to infiltrate new humans into the worst
places of the world. You can't just have a guy who looks like Gary Busey
in a Spring Break '93 sweatshirt, plop himself down in a coffee shop in
Kabul and say "Hiya, boys. Gee, I sure would like to meet that bin Laden
fella. "Well, you can, but all you'd be doing is giving the bad guys a
story they'll be telling for years.

4) "These people are poor and helpless, and that's why they're angry at
us." Uh-huh, and Jeffrey Dahmer's frozen head collection was just a
desperate cry for help. The terrorists and their backers are richer than
Elton John and, ironically, a good deal less annoying. The poor helpless
people, you see, are the villagers they tortured and murdered to stay in
power. Mohammed Atta, one of the evil scumbags who steered those planes
into the killing grounds (I'm sorry, one of the "alleged
hijackers," according to CNN-they stopped using the word "terrorist,"
you know), is the son of a Cairo surgeon. But you knew this, too.

In the sixties and seventies, all the pinheads marching against the war
were upper-middle-class college kids who grabbed any cause they could
think of to get out of their final papers and spend more time drinking.
At least, that was my excuse. It's the same today. (Take the
Anti-Global-Warming or is it World Trade? Oh-who-knows-what-the-****
-they-want demonstrators) They all charged their black outfits and plane
tickets on dad's credit card before driving to the airport in their
SUV's.

5) "Any profiling is racial profiling." Who's killing us here, the
Norwegians? Just days after the attack, the New York Times had an
article
saying dozens of extended members of the gazillionaire bin Laden family
living in America were afraid of reprisals and left in a huff, never to
return to studying at Harvard and using too much Drakkar.

I'm crushed. I think we're all crushed. Please come back. With a cherry
on top? Why don't they just change their names, anyway? It's happened in
the past. Think about it. How many Adolfs do you run into these days?
Shortly after that, I remember watching TV with my jaw on the floor as a
government official actually said, "That little old grandmother from
Sioux City could be carrying something." Okay, how about this: No, she
couldn't. It would never be the grandmother from Sioux City.

Is it even possible? What are the odds? Winning a hundred Powerball
lotteries in a row? A thousand? A million? And now a Secret Service guy
has been tossed off a plane and we're all supposed to cry about it
because he's an Arab? Didn't it have the tiniest bit to do with the fact
that he filled out his forms incorrectly- - three times? And then left
an
Arab history book on his seat as he strolled off the plane? And came
back? Armed?

Let's please all stop singing "We Are the World" for a minute and think
practically. I don't want to be sitting on the floor in the back of a
plane four seconds away from hitting Mt. Rushmore and turn, grinning, to
the guy next to me to say, "Well, at least we didn't offend them."

SO HERE'S what I resolve for the New Year: Never to forget our murdered
brothers and sisters. Never to let the relativists get away with their
immoral thinking. After all, no matter what your daughter's political
science professor says, we didn't start this. Have you seen that bumper
sticker that says, "No More Hiroshimas"? I wish I had one that says,
"You
First. No More Pearl Harbors."

What more can you say? It really doesn't matter who wrote it. If you need your true feelings validated by a government official being in agreement with you- I think they're still taking vounteers for the "Barbera Striesand for President" campaign. :)

Honestly, this article is full of insight of a wise person, in other words: it's the truth. That is why you will never hear it on the TV or most radio stations.

Do any of you guys listen to Michael Savage on the radio? If you can get it in your area, you will love it.
