I'm Back... But Sadness Surrounds Me...

Hello everyone I'm Shamrock7 and yes I do exist and yes I am back for more. My job is simple the mission has not changed I bring to you the sad cold hard world as seen, of course, by me. I am sorry to all my regular readers for the sudden disappearance of my blog. The story is like this.......I was (until recently) involved with a beautiful woman whom I called "The Shamrock Princess". We lived together for about 2 1/2 to 3 years before I well we decided to get engaged to be married. Well long story short about a couple of months after the magical engagement which consisted of a Beach a bed and breakfast for the weekend and great Carolina weather the problems started. She didn't like this blog ..So I shut it down....She didn't like football...So I made an effort to stop watching....She didn't like the assault rifle, handgun, and other assortments of "legal" WMDs I had at the house got rid of them.....Well as you all know I am in language school. Well one Saturday whilst at said class she made her move. I came home and was slapped in the face with the harsh reality that she "POOF" disappeared! Pieces of furniture where gone and other various items through the house were missing. All of our pictures were stacked on the coffee table and such. As I walked through the house getting colder and feeling my heart slowly drop into my boots all I could think of was that "This has to be a joke!" I made my way to our bed chamber and that's when I saw it. The infamous burgandy box with the words "Modern Love" embedded into the top. Next to that was her cellphone. And a "letter" which has become the "Dear Shamrock" letter. Hands shaking I opened the ring box....There it sat...So beautiful... A true representation of my undying love for her. All I wanted was a hitman to come out of the closet and BAM! Like the movies and the camera would capture my brains and cranial viscera splattered onto the wall to my front. I will not share the letter with you due to that I respect Her privacy. After not hearing from her for at least a week and a half she calls me and tells me that she's safe and made the trip ok. I wish her all the fortune and luck for her future endeavors and seriously hope she finds peace within herself.

I know there are some of you that are saying"Ruck Up P*&^!!!!" Well your right I am. And this blog entry will be the last one of its kind. This I promise to all of you read and move on like we all have too. At least this unfortunate situation happened while I was still stateside and not out visiting "My uncle". As far as myself.... Jake Commando and I will be combining our blogs as I will be his new "guest" writer for his blog. But never fear Shamrockites this blog will still be here and I will be submitting articles from my brain on a regular basis. Thank you for your continued support and to all of you new people welcome and relax.


SHAMROCK OUT!

Raed up your Ass!




Hello all get ready because I am pissed! This story I found today on the Drudge Report sent me through the roof! A Code Pink supporting Iraqi "puff" was detained at JFK airport and was forced to change his t-shirt which offended some passengers plus an flight attendant at the check-in booth for his flight. The t-shirt read in both arabic and english "We will not be silent". The flight attendant found it offensive and/or inflammatory reported it and had him detained and asked to remove the item of clothing. Full story here.
After going to this "oppressed" bloggers website. I read his side of the story. This America hating liberal is acting like he was first racially "profiled" and second his constitutional rights were being violated! Hey buddy it's ok for you guys to wear crap like this or filth like this. And I am supposed to be ok with it? Why because you went to Berkley or some other facist college in the U.S.? Where's my right to find you and your kind of people offensive! Where is that flight attendants right to find that shirt offensive and have you remove it before boarding "her" flight? ....Oh that's right people who love there country and are Pro-America don't have rights because we are all sheep huh?...Lambs of the facist regime huh? Mindless, uneducated, noncultured, poor white/black/asian/latino.(/purple/blue/pink/etc)trash that believe the "hype" that America is the best country to live in. Maybe I will attend your next "F(*& America" rally with this t-shirt on. Do you think I won't get harassed or asked to take it off? Why maybe it might offend some of your kind(kind meaning anti-Americans lets not turn this into a race thing).Where is my right to wear that lil gem?

I tell you what you explain to me how a religion that condones beheadings and the enslavement of Kafir women for "personal usage" isn't a violent religion and I won't purchase and wear with pride this t-shirt. Plus I will publicly apologize on my own blog to anyone who is offended by this rant today. "Where are you getting this Shamrock!?!" you all exclaim. "Here I'll provide some reading for you choose to read it or don't. But a little wisdom never hurt anyone.

Shamrock Out!


According to Muhammad’s sacralized biography by Ibn Ishaq, Muhammad himself sanctioned the massacre of the Qurayza, a vanquished Jewish tribe. He appointed an "arbiter" who soon rendered this concise verdict: the men were to be put to death, the women and children sold into slavery, the spoils to be divided among the Muslims. Muhammad ratified this judgment stating that it was a decree of God pronounced from above the Seven Heavens. Thus some 600 to 900 men from the Qurayza were lead on Muhammad’s order to the Market of Medina. Trenches were dug and the men were beheaded, and their decapitated corpses buried in the trenches while Muhammad watched in attendance. Women and children were sold into slavery, a number of them being distributed as gifts among Muhammad’s companions, and Muhammad chose one of the Qurayza women (Rayhana) for himself. The Qurayza’s property and other possessions (including weapons) were also divided up as additional "booty" among the Muslims, to support further jihad campaigns.

The classical Muslim jurist al-Mawardi (a Shafi’ite jurist, d. 1058) from Baghdad was a seminal, prolific scholar who lived during the so-called Islamic "Golden Age" of the Abbasid-Baghdadian Caliphate. He wrote the following, based on widely accepted interpretations of the Qur'an and Sunna (i.e., the recorded words and deeds of Muhammad), regarding infidel prisoners of jihad campaigns:

“As for the captives, the amir [ruler] has the choice of taking the most beneficial action of four possibilities: the first to put them to death by cutting their necks; the second, to enslave them and apply the laws of slavery regarding their sale and manumission; the third, to ransom them in exchange for goods or prisoners; and fourth, to show favor to them and pardon them. Allah, may he be exalted, says, 'When you encounter those [infidels] who deny [the Truth=Islam] then strike [their] necks' (Qur'an sura 47, verse 4)”....Abu’l-Hasan al-Mawardi, al-Ahkam as-Sultaniyyah." [The Laws of Islamic Governance, trans. by Dr. Asadullah Yate, (London), Ta-Ha Publishers Ltd., 1996, p. 192. Emphasis added.]

Indeed such odious “rules” were iterated by all four classical schools of Islamic jurisprudence, across the vast Muslim empire.

For centuries, from the Iberian peninsula to the Indian subcontinent, jihad campaigns waged by Muslim armies against infidel Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, Buddhists and Hindus, were punctuated by massacres, including mass throat slittings and beheadings. During the period of “enlightened” Muslim rule, the Christians of Iberian Toledo, who had first submitted to their Arab Muslim invaders in 711 or 712, revolted in 713. In the harsh Muslim reprisal that ensued, Toledo was pillaged, and all the Christian notables had their throats cut. On the Indian subcontinent, Babur (1483-1530), the founder of the Mughal Empire, who is revered as a paragon of Muslim tolerance by modern revisionist historians, recorded the following in his autobiographical “Baburnama,” about infidel prisoners of a jihad campaign:

"Those who were brought in alive [having surrendered] were ordered beheaded, after which a tower of skulls was erected in the camp." [The Baburnama -Memoirs of Babur, Prince and Emperor, translated and edited by Wheeler M. Thacktson, Oxford University Press,1996, p. 188. Emphasis added.]

Recent jihad-inspired decapitations of infidels by Muslims have occurred across the globe- Christians in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Nigeria; Hindu priests and "unveiled" Hindu women in Kashmir; Wall Street Journal reporter, and Jew, Daniel Pearl. We should not be surprised that these contemporary paroxysms of jihad violence are accompanied by ritualized beheadings. Such gruesome acts are in fact sanctioned by core Islamic sacred texts, and classical Muslim jurisprudence. Empty claims that jihad decapitations are somehow "alien to true Islam," however well-intentioned, undermine serious efforts to reform and desacralize Islamic doctrine. This process will only begin with frank discussion, both between non-Muslims and Muslims, and within the Muslim community.

The Windy City and Assholes


Hey it's Monday "Yeah"! Anyways I don't know if anyone has been tracking or have heard anything about Chicago and it's new laws they passed or trying to pass but I have been listening long enough about it and I have a comment about this lil gem ready.... Here it goes. Ok the City of Chicago is passing some laws that seem weird to me here are some examples of these said laws. "No smoking in public places that children can be in" I'm assuming restaurants and the like. "No smoking in YOUR car if children are present". That's kinda a no brainier. "No eating duck and/or goose liver within the city limits". Now that one kinda made me chuckle but you know whatever. I mean what do you expect from a city that invented prohibition. I really don't think that fowl liver "Speakeasys" will start to "pop" up around the greater Chicago area but I'm just sayin'. And the peoples and MSMs reaction to this is that the local government is "parenting" it's citizens. AMERICA! HEY!..Listen you DO want the government to "parent" you! When a video game that comes out and it's the new "hotness" that's obviously full of violence and crime you don't take it from your kid and say "Damn I need to pay attention to what the hell my kids are buying/playing on this here idiot box". Oh no you blame the gamemaker and make the "Government" threaten gamemakers with fines and such then have the government make a rating system for such games. Which in turn gamemakers comply and then due to the rating system make even more violent adult games. Why because there rated "M" for mature. Or how about when children go on shooting spree killing a dozen kids then themselves. America blames the music they listened to and once again the video games that they played plus we blamed some comic books that were found at the houses. Then we ask for more bans and 18+ purchasing of explicit lyric music. And then our friend Michael Moore blames K-Mart for selling the bullets to the youngsters so they can kill other young people. That's right Michael the Columbine Trenchcoat Mafia walked up to the clerk at the outdoors section of K-mart and asked "Do you have any bullets that we can use for a High School shooting spree where planning?" And clerk answered "Why sure we've got a 2 for 1 sale going on for death and destruction". I got an idea how about we look into asking the parents how many times they asked there kids what the HELL there doing with this many guns or say "Hey your wearing really dark clothes and look scary are you ok?" and just get involved. Or here's another one ask the school why these two kids killed only the youngsters that were the "pricks" of school. I know that sounded harsh but it's the damn truth. The majority of the kids targeted where the ones that made these troubled youths life hell. And you don't think that school counselors/teachers know what the hell goes on in the halls and such. Of course they do but why bring in one of the popular rich kids and run the risk of pissing off there equally rich and "asshole" parents. "Fuck it" these counselors say "I get my summers off". America doesn't want to take responsibility for anything if it means that Americans have to look at themselves and say "Oh crap my bad ..I screwed up". We can't do that because it makes us feel weird inside and ...and ...makes us feel BAD! But take away my right to smoke and eat partially raw goose liver and it's "DAMN THE MAN!" "Whadda mean I can't smoke in my car with my six bastards in the car!....I mean I got the window cracked..Sheesh!" Look I don't give a monkeys uncle if you smoke it's not my thing but I got plenty of other things that can kill me as well so who am I to judge right. I dunno this rant kinda went "Dennis Leary" so with that I leave you with this wonderful little ditty from one of the best Irish poets and storytellers of our time. Enjoy your Monday people.

Airborne Day at the Museum Part 2


Above are the busts of Col Aaron Bank. The founder and Father of Special Forces. Next to him is Col Arthur D "Bull" Simons which he's was the mastermind behind many SOF missions to include the Son Tay Raid and Desert One in Iran in the late 70's



Below are some "Special" people that I found inside in the A/C because it was so damn hot even at 9:00AM. Work smarter not harder I always say. They had all job descriptions and equipment there for the public to view. I chose the most "sanitized" pictures for you to view but none the less impressive.


The Medic



Weapons




Scuba "Steve"



Below is the 1st FSSF or theDevil's Brigade. I took these pictures for our friends in the north. This WWII unit was a joint task force if you will of U.S. and Canadian troops. And in Anzio the Germans dubbed them "The Black Devils"








The museum used to have a great Global War on Terrorism section right off to the main museum display entrance. Well they have moved that out and put in a Vietnam War memorial/Airborne Special Ops timeline and major campaigns section. Below are some pictures of the entrance and some of the displays. The 173rd (my old stompin' ground) is also represented very well in this section












The 173rd ABN BDE or "The Herd".









Well that's it I have more but I'm not gonna post them. If I did you wouldn't have a reason to go to this amazing museum. If you have a chance or haven't been there in awhile go. Go and see it again. Everytime I go I see something new. Like the SF guy hiding in the bushes by the mock LZ in the Vietnam section of the main museum or talk to one of the old vets who give up there free time to work there. I took my parents there and I told one of the "old timers" it was there first time at the museum. Shoot he walked us around and told us millions more than I could ever BS my way through plus he had first hand knowledge of fighting in Italy with the 504 PIR in WWII. When I was at the museum for Airborne Day everyone was there WWII, Korea, Vietnam, all were represented. I ran into and spoke to a gentleman from the British Para Regiment that parachuted into the British objectives on D-Day! This guy was amazing! Flew all the way from England for vacation to the coast but planned it around this day. The stories he was telling quickly drew a crowd for new and old paratroopers. And you could see in this old mans eyes the joy he felt talking to the new generation of "Paratroopers". I also met a vet from Vietnam that was a "Red Hat". He said he was on MACV Advisory Team 162. I didn't find much on this on the web but he was an interesting fellow that talked a bit about there training and similarities it had with some of the stuff in the "Q". Well like I said I hope you enjoyed these pictures and sorry it took so long to get them up. Have a good weekend.

Airborne Day at the Museum Part 1


Well last Saturday I went to the Airborne & Special Operations Museum and celebrated Airborne Day. So like a good paratrooper I took a bunch of pictures for you guys. Below are just some of the pictures I have. Enjoy!



There was a lot of WWII equipment and "reenactors" on display on the front lawn of the museum. These guys were the only 82nd troopers having a good time. The modern troopers really looked pissed off about there Saturday being taken plus Boy Scouts climbing all over there HMMWV's




This WWII Harley is awesome! The old timer in the chair said he found it in a barn and restored it to its original glory. His oldest son there only rides it about 3-4 times a year. I have been kicking around the idea of modernizing this concept with a bobber rolling chassis. That would be sick huh!

The museum is building a new section of to the side of the main displays which is dedicated to the modern Special Forces missions and equipment. They opened this section up for the day. I was lucky enough to be allowed to take some pictures of some of the displays. Below are only three of maybe a handful in this new section that were partially done.


Robin Sage (I know.. I laughed too!)





The Infamous GMV


CAS





On an admin note I cannot post the rest of the pics so I'll be splitting up this post into hopefully two parts.
