This blog overlooks the Australian east coast and from the balcony is the Pacific Ocean gently breaking on a sandy beach. This small part of the ocean is known as the Coral Sea and therefore part of the vast battlefield where in May 1942 the US Navy, aided by the RAN and the RAAF, saw off a Japanese invasion fleet headed for Port Moresby hundreds of miles to the north.
This morning two US veterans were among those who gathered for a dawn service in Townsville in north Queensland to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea.
The men, who are in their 90s, served on the USS Lexington, one of two aircraft carriers that fought in the battle off the north Queensland coast one month before the Battle of Midway. The Lexington, which had survived Pearl Harbour, was lost in the battle.
Today is also the first anniversary of the despatch of Osama bin Laden and naturally President Obama is playing it for all it's worth. Enough of him.
One year ago today heliborne United States Navy Seals from the Red Squadron of the Joint Special Operations Command's United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group took out the nastiest terrorist in all of history and in doing so put on notice fanatical Islamist criminals and enemies of humanity everywhere that none of them are beyond reach.
Recently this blog founded the Geoffff's Joint Peace Prize in an attempt to shore up the global peace prize credibility problem following the award of the Nobel peace prize to such luminaries as the psychopath arch-terrorist and child killer, Yassir Arafat, and Nazi Islamist apologist and peddler of racist slander Archbishop Desmund Tutu, and also the award of the Sydney Peace Prize to crackpot democracy hating Israel basher, Noam Chomsky, Marxist antisemite, John Pilger and Arafat PR front woman and 9/11 denier, Hanan Ashrawi.
So can there be really any doubt who deserves the honour of the Geoffff's Joint Peace Prize this 1 May 2012 ?
Congratulations US Seals. The prize of course is yours.
Thanks again US Navy.
Making and keeping the peace for over seventy years. Always welcome in Australian ports
After 20 years hanging around with leftists who despise the military, I find this kind of sentiment to be nicely refreshing.ReplyDelete

An important fact to know is that the founding membership of the CIA was constituted by several thousand German former Nazi officials who, soon after World War II, were recruited into the CIA by the founder of the CIA, Allen Dulles - who, with his friend, Jack Philby, provided, and profited from providing, petroleum from Muslim Arab states to the Nazi regime of Germany during the 1930's. Jack Philby was a British official who was one of the main administrators of the British Mandate of Palestine, and was a self-professed Socialist, and converted to Islam in 1930, and was a fervent supporter of the Nazis.
The following are two books about some of this, and about other aspects of this aspect of the situation that Israel is in. The books are by John Loftus, who was a U.S. Justice Department federal prosecutor who had above Top Secret security clearance in the U.S. government. However, by the way, John Loftus has expressed the false belief that Islam is a "peaceful religion", and that Wahabi Islam is a heretical sect of Islam. And, by the way, John Loftus is a Democrat.
