Great American Patriot

Posted by iusbvision on December 27, 2008

God’s Gifts by Michelle Malkin:

What an extraordinary treasure America was given in Dong Yun Yoon. The naturalized American from Korea lost his entire family in a San Diego military jet crash three weeks ago. The tragedy claimed the lives of his infant daughter, toddler daughter, wife and mother-in-law. It wrecked his house and upended his world.

But Mr. Yoon refused to blame the pilot or bash the military. At a press conference near the site of the crash, the grieving father and husband urged his fellow citizens to pray for the pilot: “He is one of our treasures for the country … I don’t blame him. I don’t have any hard feelings. I know he did everything he could.”

In an age of shoe-tossing temper tantrums, anti-troop bigotry and litigation gone wild, Mr. Yoon demonstrated both amazing grace and unbending patriotism in the face of unfathomable pain. His heart-wrenching plea for forgiveness resounded across the country — and around the world. Five hundred people from both the civilian and military communities came to lift Mr. Yoon up at his family’s memorial service. The assistant pastor of his church reported that they had received more than 1,000 phone calls and e-mail messages offering condolences and financial support.

Mr. Yoon’s suffering and sacrifice are powerful reminders of the preciousness of life — reminders that money can’t buy.

Be sure to read the rest of Malkin’s patriotic Christmas message HERE.

China Still Executing Its Own With Little Justice

Posted by iusbvision on December 27, 2008

WASHINGTON POST:

BEIJING — Compared with murder and other violent crimes, the charges against Wo Weihan seemed minor, if a little exotic: copying articles from missile technology magazines in a public library, buying four night-vision equipment scopes, gathering information about the health of senior government leaders and collecting documents from a local Communist Party conference.

Yet the once-respected scientist with his own medical research laboratory in the capital was branded a spy and executed last month after a closed trial. His is one of several recent executions that highlight the secrecy, lack of due process and uneven application of the law that continue to surround capital cases two years after China embarked on a radical overhaul of the way it handles the death penalty.

Starting in 2007, China began for the first time in more than two decades to require a final review of every capital case by the Supreme People’s Court. The hope was to reduce the number of executions and bring some consistency to a process that had been handled unevenly by lower courts. The former president of the Supreme People’s Court who pushed for the review, Xiao Yang, vowed that the death penalty would be used only on “extremely vile criminals.”

While “reforms” have brought down the number of executions 30% form 2006:

Defendants on death row continue to be executed for such nonviolent crimes as illegal fundraising, graft, drug dealing and espionage. They are prosecuted and dispatched with a lack of transparency, according to Chinese lawyers who complain of blocked access to their clients and say many confessions are still coerced.

There are also double standards: Public officials accused of embezzling millions receive suspended death sentences that spare their lives, while ordinary citizens convicted of stealing far less die by lethal injection or a single gunshot to the head, according to lawyers and court records.

China remains the world’s top executioner — the Dui Hua Foundation, a human rights group, estimates that China carried out 5,000 to 6,000 executions in 2007. The same year, the United States executed 42 people. On a per-capita basis, China is estimated to have carried out 30 times the number of executions the United States did.

Israel Strikes Back After Scores Of Attacks from Gaza – World Shows Idiotic Double Standard – UPDATED!

Posted by iusbvision on December 27, 2008

Today Condi Rice over at the State Department called for a cease fire in the Gaza Strip. Hey Condi, where was your call for cease fire when Hamas was firing dozens of rockets at Israeli civilians? It would be easy to just chalk up the worlds glaring double standard when it comes to warfare to antisemitism, but after examining this issue for years, and examining how so many governments have one standard for Jews and another for everyone else, I believe that antisemitism is exactly what it is.

What would the United States do, if year after year, with some support from the Mexican government, they launched rockets and terror attacks against the United States and its civilians along the border? I will tell you what we would do, we would either conquer it and make it the 51st state, or we would occupy it and place a puppet government in Mexico City.

Yet the world has encouraged limiting the Israeli/Palestinian conflict to “tit for tat” warfare.  History shows that such warfare never leads to peace, it has just lead to generations of hate and deaths that do not need to happen. What the Israeli/Palestinian conflict needs is a clear and decisive winner and that winner should be Isarel. The Palestinians have been able to come up with what is only one corrupt and terror supporting government after another.

It is time for the Isareli/Palestinian conflict to come to and end for good. Then and only then, will the killing stop and there can be peace.

Update: IDF still sending humanitarian shipments to Gaza:
