CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
Conservative talk radio from the outskirts of the hub of Western Civilization. The way things are going in Iraq and Afghanistan, the prospects for lasting victory are fading with worse long-term consequences than Vietnam. The human cost of the Vietnam War was far greater than it has been in Iraq and Afghanistan, but I choose to believe that our warriors did not die in vain in Vietnam because we ultimately won the Cold War of which the wars in Korea and Vietnam were part. Still, we lost t
One of the major news items of the week has been the fall of Mosul and other parts of Iraq to a group of Islamists set on creating a caliphate in the area of Iraq and Syria. Two and a half years after leaving Iraq to their own devices, we're now seeing Iraq wasn't prepared to handle any threats or terrorism on their own. This is not about so much pointing fingers or assigning blame, although there are certainly decisions and actions taken that brought Iraq to this point. Mostly it's about relaying some of what is happening, with a report as well on what's happening to Christians in Mosul and the dangers they face. Also, a little bit more on the border situation down at Texas and Arizona and some thoughts on Eric Cantor's loss. That's today on American Faith Today at 4:30 Eastern and archived afterward.

From Holger Awakens blog, dated December 22, 2011:
I've played the scenario out before for you all here but let me do it again...these bombings continue, then a wave of political assassinations begin and then the forces of al Qaeda go after their old strongholds of Fallujah and Ramadi and before you can say "Ayatollah Khomenei" there will be Iranian Qods Forces and Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces in Iraq ....invited their by the Shia leader of Iraq to maintain law and order. And then, it will be over. Does anyone really think al-Maliki is going to call up the U.S. troops in Kuwait to help? Nope. It's gonna be the Iranians and when they set foot on Iraqi soil, every Sunni group in the country is gonna go apeshit and it will be on.
Elections have consequences. No matter where you live.
Hillary.....Fired in Disgrace? Yep!!!!
Bowe......and his wonderful adventure in Afghanistan....
The crisis in Iraq has driven up oil prices, which hurts American consumers and stifles growth. So, this is already costing you a lot. However, what you might not realize is that stifled economic growth can result in a market downturn, or in the worst case scenario, a recession.
Ignoring the situation can burn you. Getting the wrong advice can cost you.
Tune in for the facts, the stats and the solutions you need to protect and prosper in these (continuing) volatile times.
Join us for another episode of the RINO of Power with your host, Rick Moran.
The terrorists of the ISIS along with thier Sunni tribal allies are forcing some harsh realities to emerge in Iraq. Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has now called for a boycott of the Sunni political bloc and has accused Saudi Arabia of "genocide" because of their support for the terrorists. Sectarian civil war seems inevitable.
The Kurds have taken the city of Kirkuk and aren't likely to give it back to the central government. The country appears to be flying apart at the seams and it's unclear if there's any shortcut to putting the pieces back together.
Meanwhile, Iran continues its support of the murderous Assad regime in next door Syria as they foment unrest elsewhere in the Middle East.
Can Iraq be saved?
I discussed the issue with David P. Goldman, aka "Spengler" - a columnist for Asia Times Online and PJ Media and author of "The Way Civilizations Die."
Also joining me will be American Thinker political correspondent Rich Baehr for a rapid fire "Lightening Round" of questions.
We stream live from 8:00 - 9:00 PM Eastern time. A podcast will be available shortly after the end of the show.
