CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
The United States did indeed win the war in Iraq... and then stood back to watch the victory crumble. American forces transformed Iraq from a violent and chaotic land to a stable democracy that only needed minimal America support to defend and recreate itself. But thanks to the Obama administration, this minor support was withheld. As a result, the nation saw peace give way to terror under the ISIS invasion - a disaster that would have easily been prevented by an engaged administration.
Victory Undone: The Defeat of al-Qaeda in Iraq and its Resurrection as ISIS, the new book by CarterAndress, reveals the untold story of how the Iraq War was won and subsequently thrown away. Andress is a world-renowned military contractor whose company, American-Iraqi Solutions Group (AISG), substantially contributed to the defeat of al-Qaeda in Iraq

Hello and welcome back to Bringing Back the Fire blog cast! Today we have extended our discussion on The Great Deception. Last week we marveled as we learned about the demonic schemes perpetrated through the ancient goddess ISIS. From idolatry of Ancient Egypt, Rome, England and Afghanistan, ISIS is yet being worshipped from the feet of Mary's statue, to America's Statue of Liberty. A line of deception can be seen as demonic attacks riddle the Jew and the Christian. The demonic connection of deception began some six thousand years ago in the Garden of Eden, when ISIS tempted Eve to mistrust her God. In the past, and today the spirit of ISIS is at work. We see her diabolical and heinous crimes in Syria and Iraq as well as other parts of the world. We also see her as the drunken Harlot in the Book of Revelation.
Dr. Faheem Younus is originally from Pakistan. He joins Joe to discuss the recent school shooting and other events.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

Episode #295: Exclusive! Voices of Global Freedom Radio Hosts Yoda and Backpack will interview Ernie Audino, Retired Brigadier General United States Army, spent a year in Kurdistan fighting alongside the Kurdish Peshmerga forces, getting to know the Kurds very well.
Brigadier General Audino talks about his time in Kurdistan and his views on the future of Kurds and US policies toward the Kurdish government. Brigadier General Ernie Audino received his master’s degree in National Security and Strategic Studies at the National War College and studied Kurdish history in depth under Ambassador Peter Galbraith.
With the demise of the Baathist Regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq and withdrawal of US forces, Iran is the most powerful force in the Gulf and is conducting airstrikes inside Iraq. Tehran and Washington fight ISIS. We must check Iranian strength, not accommodate it as the Obama administration is doing. General Audino believes an independent Kurdistan is the best buffer against the spread of radical Islam in the region.

The Islamic State, ISIL/ISIS/Daesh - whatever people may call them - are not a flash in the pan. Not quite insurgency, not quiet terrorist organization, not quite nation state - what they are is a presence that has resilience, trans-national support, and has a long range plan.
What is their background, how have they evolved, and how do they view the world?
Our guest for the full hour to discuss this and more will be Craig Whiteside, LTC USA (Ret.), Associate Professor of Theater Security Decision Making for the Naval War College Monterey at the Naval Postgraduate School. Craig came to the War College from Washington State University, where he was a PhD student in Political Science and taught American Government and National Security Affairs. Prior to returning to school, Professor Whiteside was a career infantry officer in the U.S. Army with service in the airborne infantry. He is an Iraq war veteran and served with the Geronimos of the 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry in Iskandariyah as the battalion executive officer during 2006-7. He finished his military service as the Professor of Military Science at Washington State. Professor Whiteside is currently working on his dissertation investigating the political worldview of the Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham (ISIS). He is a graduate of the United States Military Academy and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.
A news article today in the London Independent states "Nasa finds evidence of 'life on Mars."
The article further states that "evidence of life on Mars could have been found by Nasa's Curiosity Rover. One of the instruments on the robot found mysterious spikes of methane that cannot easily be explained by geology or other theories. Scientists can’t be sure what is causing the spikes, but it is possible that it could be very small, bacteria-like living organisms."
If the gas is coming from living, breathing microbes then it would mark one of the biggest discoveries in history.
Meanwhile, there are other headlines that are grabbing the interest of those striving to stay informed... more on the hostage crisis in Sydney, with the perpetrator's Muslim girlfriend. Also, the Islamic Taliban slaughter over 120 men, women and children at a school in Pakistan.
