Indeed, “America Imagine The World Without Her.”
Long after we are gone, dead and buried as the freezing rain wind and snow covers the earth, and no one is alive to remember us, history will record that Jim O’Neill, UDT and Navy SEAL was among the sharper knives in the drawer.
His writings will never be lost or revised by the revisionist historians who lurk among us.
“Lone wolves” do not just spontaneously generate in an ideological/religious/political vacuum–they are nurtured and cultivated by the pack

Because of Ebola the country of Liberia is much in the news lately, yet most people remain unaware that the US has something of a vested interest in Liberia. It is, for better or worse (mostly worse), America’s only colony on the African continent—former colony I should say.
Its capital of Monrovia is named in honor of the fifth president of the United States, James Monroe. It is one of only two national capitals named after a US president (the other one being Washington DC). The similarity between the Liberian flag and the US flag is no accident.
According to Wikipedia:
The Liberian flag bears a close resemblance to the flag of the United States, showing the ex-American slave origins of the country. The Liberian flag has similar red and white stripes, as well as a blue square with a white star in the canton.
It was adopted on Friday, April 26, 1847. The eleven stripes symbolize the signatories of the Liberian Declaration of Independence, red and white symbolizing courage and moral excellence.
The white star represents the freedom the ex-slaves were given, above the blue square representing the African mainland. The flag is seen on many ships around the world as Liberia offers registration under its flag.
Years ago during my travels, I became intrigued with the large number of ships flying the Liberian flag that I saw in various ports around the world. I wondered what the deal was with Liberia, so I researched the subject.
What I found (I did my research in the mid-1990s) was a bloody, horrific, god-awful mess. Liberia was at that time in the midst of a civil war that lasted for around ten years (circa 1989-1997). Some reports on the war place its beginnings as early as 1980, and some imply that it is still going on, although tamped down by the presence of UN troops.
The reasons for the war are convoluted and complex, but it is not too simplistic to say that a major cause of the conflict was the “bad blood” between the “Amerio-Liberian” ruling class (descendants of black manumitted American slaves) and the much more populous native tribes.
According to a recent report by the BBC: “The UN maintains some 15,000 soldiers in Liberia. It is one of the organization’s most expensive peacekeeping operations.” The key phrase there is “peacekeeping operations” (followed closely by “most expensive”).
