April 5, 2013 – Next Wednesday, April 10, has apparently been set as a deadline for the embassies in North Korea to be evacuated in the event of an attack. North Korea says it cannot guarantee the safety of those not leaving their country after the 10th. This latest news continues to add fuel to the fire and rhetoric on whether or not Kim Jong Un intends to attack anyone, much less fire a missile.
It was reported today that a Foreign Office spokesman said: “We can confirm that the British Embassy in Pyongyang received a communication from the North Korean government this morning. It said that the North Korean government would be unable to guarantee the safety of embassies and international organisations in the country in the event of conflict from April 10.”
Even if young Kim Jong Un does fire a missile, we must wonder how the U.S. will respond, even if it’s a test fire. At this point any missile launch from North Korea should be considered reason enough to take it out immediately. This very young, power hungry, publicity seeking fool has made too many serious threats to be taken lightly. We need to respond in a manner that leaves no doubt to Kim Jong Un or anyone else that his actions require a serious response. If he fires one or more test missiles he needs to see just how fast our response will be to destroying every missile launch pad he has. Let there be no room for question to the world that the United States is fully prepared to stop this young dictator in his tracks.
I wonder how President John F. Kennedy would have responded under these circumstances? -Roycroft

April 3, 2013 – Mainstream media and the Obama administration are low key on the Korean crisis. I suppose because Obama has a domestic gun control issue he feels is more important. No sense in allowing some power crazy North Korean dictator having the limelight just because he is threatening to launch a nuclear attack against the United States. Hell, it’s more important to disarm American citizens so they can’t defend themselves.
Actually there is good reason why the administration is quiet on this issue. I had a short Twitter conversation with WSB Radio White House corespondent Jamie Dupree today where I posed a question:
@jamiedupree Are you as concerned about Korea as me? Very dangerous. Why has Obama not held a press briefing on this or did I miss something
look at it another way – if you go out of your way to focus on it, you are giving the North Koreans exactly what they want – attention
So when you consider all the facts and circumstances surrounding what Kim Jong Un is attempting to do, one would have to believe that he is desperate for attention. After all, this is a new, very young punk dictator trying desperately to make a name for himself by taking on the most powerful military on the planet. So why would it be smart to play by his rules? The kid is seeking attention, and just maybe Obama is playing this game the smart way by laying low on the media front. Less publicity and public commenting is good in this case. It would be much too risky to give an irrational child negative attention. It’s really not worth chancing war. If we were to go to war with North Korea the impact on the entire global economy would be devastating.
We can all be rest assured that we are preparing to do battle with the likelihood for close ground combat. Our Navy is getting into position and we are sending missile protection to Guam and Hawaii. Our entire military is on high alert for what ever happens in the near future. We have spies on the ground inside North Korea gathering and feeding out tactical information to our military. This is a serious situation and we are doing everything we can to prepare.
One of the Murphy’s laws of war: Maintain presence of mind, do not let yourself be intimidated by yourself or others.
Think about it. How would you handle a spoiled little brat? Do you give in to his need for attention or just ignore the little bastard and hope he finally shuts up? In this case I think low profile with the media is our best counter to a loud mouth.
Although I speak negatively about Barack Obama and his role as a leader, I do have faith in our military. Obama just needs to do what he did when SEAL Team 6 took out Bin Laden…Move out of the way and let our military take care of business. -JRoycroft

October 22, 2012 – Who knew that our, Ruler Barack Obama, would have turned out to be the submissive type?
I’m guessing there’s a pretty good chance that Obama has read, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” and I think it’s safe to assume which role he would have played. Let’s just say he wouldn’t be the one wearing a grey tie to the red room event.
Our dear Ruler Obama, bowing to world leaders and kissing enemy ass like a good little boy. So, is it any wonder why people like Castro, Putin and Chavez want Obama to be re-elected? -JRoycroft
September 30, 2012 – The news agencies are reporting the American death count reaches a milestone at 2,000 today. That number is from June. We shouldn’t be surprised by the misinformation the Obama media is filtering to us, after all, this is his war now.
Two thirds of the casualties have been under Obama’s watch, and has anyone noticed that when Obama became Ruler, the news media stopped giving us a Sunday reminder with the names of the recently killed soldiers?
Here we are, 11 years later, 4 of them under our Ruler Obama, and the death toll continues to rise under his watch.
Bin Laden is dead, but I suppose there are those that can find a way to blame Bush for keeping us there today.- JRoycroft
September 8 2012 – The majority of troops have left Iraq, but a number of civilian security forces remain to protect diplomats and to continue training the Iraqi police force. This is news you won’t be hearing on the local or cable networks, especially during a presidential campaign. It wouldn’t look good for Washington or the State Dept. When those special forces are killed by IED’s or combat fire you won’t hear about it. They are the expendable forces that our government uses in place of military. They are also the people who trained some of our own military who served in Iraq.
Here is a report from Will Grant, that gives you some insight on what is going on quietly, out of the news media.- JRoycroft
Eight months ago, the US military made its formal withdrawal from Iraq. And though the troops and equipment, for the most part, were shipped home, scores of US contractors remained in country to satisfy a variety of needs. The current number of security contractors in Iraq is currently just over 3,000.
At the time of the withdrawal, which concluded on December 18, speculations circulated about the future of the Iraqi government and its ability to maintain a stable, democratic state and hold back the tides of insurgency that never seemed far from the surface. Also in question was the ability of the nascent government to avoid Iranian influence.
It’s safe to say that the jury is still out on many of those concerns. Especially with Iraq’s allowing Iranian aircraft to use its airspace as a corridor to Syria. Many suspect the Iranian aircraft of transporting weapons to Syria through Iraq, and the US would like to see Iraq require the Iranian airliners to land for inspections.
For security contractors in Iraq, the troop withdrawal was foreseen as a major factor in changing the operating environment. The troop pullout was also accompanied by the Department of State’s takeover of the job in Iraq.
Some speculated that providing security in Iraq would become more dangerous without the US military there. At the time of the troop pullout, the Department of State had failed to secure a contractor for aerial operations. The ability of the DoS to handle the job in Iraq, to manage the thousands of contractors was also very much in question.
So what does the situation look like eight months later? The short answer is: It’s hard to say.
Reported contractor deaths in Iraq have been few. But the undercounting of such deaths is a worry, and the magnitude of the undercounting is really the question. There seems to have been no abdominal increase in improvised explosive device incidents or planned attacks by insurgents, though security concerns still prevent US diplomatic personnel from traveling within the country.
As far as how the DoS is handling the contractors under its watch, many of the old concerns continue to linger. The biggest of those concerns seems to be oversight, both of government spending and the accountability of US personnel continuing the mission.
I am heart broken that my children will never know the America I knew and loved as a child. I am saddened and distraught at the demise of our national identity. I am amazed that it took only one man 3 years to destroy a nation and it’s legacy - one that even though flawed and imperfect – was the light on the hill for the rest of the world. I imagine God cries with me, but I know that God is still in control – and sure as the changing of the seasons – November too will come!
July 18, 2012 - Barack Obama has this idea and belief that the government is the root to everything every American ever accomplished. In his own words, “You didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” He wants us to believe that no one has the ability to create a job, start a private business or become successful without someone elses help. Everything you ever accomplished in your life was the result of someone holding your hand. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact we the people created the very foundation that gave Barack Obama the opportunity to become the leader of the free world. We created the very government that he and his regime have willfully corrupted and tried to destroy. We are also the people who have the power to remove Obama from our White House and replace him with someone of higher intelligence and moral character and with someone who believes in America and our Constitution.
Perhaps Barack Obama should read the Declaration of Independence to fully understand why we are so upset. I’m sure it’s a document he has never read.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
In November, we the people will be exercising our power of choice to send his Marxist ass straight back to the streets of Chicago where he belongs. We will remove the garbage and begin a cleaning and healing process that has been long overdue. We will be making the choice to protect our safety, liberty, freedom and happiness.
It’s up to those of us who still love our country, and still believe in the American dream to get us back to the point where our founding fathers so desperately fought to achieve. We can, and we will do this. Obama didn’t build this country, we the people did. -JRoycroft
In remembrance for those brave warriors who died with honor and for love of country.
In Flanders Fields
John McCrae, 1915.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
