West Point Professor Calls for Military Strikes on Journalists Critical of War on Terror

freda_war_and_peaceBy Cassius Methyl

An assistant professor from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point recently declared that professionals critical of the “War on Terror” constitute a “treasonous” opposition that should be subject to military force.

He believes the U.S. should have the right to attack people who are critical of U.S. military operations — specifically, professionals, legal scholars, journalists, and other people effectively spreading ideas that oppose war.

Professor William C. Bradford went as far as to publish a long academic paper in the National Security Law Journal that aggressively promotes suppressing dissent about military force, civilian casualties, and expanding military operations in the Middle East.

Using the excuse that victims would be “lawful targets,” Bradford argues that “law school facilities, scholars’ home offices and media outlets where they give interviews” should be targeted with military force to suppress dissent. He asserted that the war on terror should be expanded, “even if it means great destruction, innumerable enemy casualties, and civilian collateral damage.”

He further suggested that the U.S. should wage “total war” on “Islamism,” using “conventional and nuclear force and [psychological operations]” to “leave them prepared to coexist with the West or be utterly eradicated.”

He said that “Threatening Islamic holy sites might create deterrence, discredit Islamism, and falsify the assumption that decadence renders Western restraint inevitable.”

Despite his self-description as an “associate professor of law, national security and strategy,” a representative of the National Defense University has tried to distance the school from Bradford by saying he wasn’t part of the staff, but rather a contracted professor.

Sporting a long history of exaggeration and pro-military extremism, “He resigned from Indiana University’s law school in 2005 after his military record showed he had exaggerated his service,” according to The Guardian.

Though the man seems to be held in high esteem by the military, he spoke with such disregard for human rights that the National Security Law Journal had to apologize.

The NSLJ released a statement on the front page of its website, saying it “…made a mistake in publishing [the] highly controversial article…”

“The substance of Mr. Bradford’s article cannot fairly be considered apart from the egregious breach of professional decorum that it exhibits,” it admitted. “We cannot ‘unpublish’ it, of course, but we can and do acknowledge that the article was not presentable for publication when we published it, and that we therefore repudiate it with sincere apologies to our readers.”

Ironically, Bradford has a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree from Harvard University with a focus in Human Rights Law.

This is a man who is apparently incorporating his violent philosophy into his teaching at West Point. He started on August 1st 2015 — after he published his article.

This is only the tip of the iceberg in forming a complete understanding of the ideological fabric held by many of the war hawks in U.S. Military.

      Reread the article dumbass, and comprehend the authors bias. That’s what an intelligent person would do.

      • M. L.

        Damn the “author’s bias”, it DOES NOT negate what the jacka$$ ‘professor’s’ calling for killing people who dissent SAID. You’re a piss poor example of a ‘conservative’.

  • colinjames71

    Kill em all, kill em everywhere, no matter the consequences. Because THAT will really get everyone on board with loving “the west”. Where do you even start deconstructing this guy’s arguments? Dude should be in the loony bin, not teaching at West Point and having articles published, absolutely inexcusable in the first place for the NSLJ, surely no champion of peace and civil liberties in the first place, I assume.

  • Ben

    Fine enough for journalists? Well fine, then also apply it to soldiers and ‘operatives’ for the government what are now going to support Al Quada and other ‘terrorists’. In all fairness they are aiding and abetting terrorists, so they are as equally guilty as journalists questioning the ‘war on terror’.

    Starting to realize a pattern in the world according to the U.S. Federalist system. If you declare a war on something, you are then going to create more of that something. Look at the ‘war on drugs’, it created more drugs, more drug related crime. The ‘war on human trafficking’ does the same as the war on drugs, creates more human trafficking and woes related to it. The ‘war on poverty’ created more poverty.

    It is the same with medicines too. We get fed medicines what created what they allegedly treat/cure. For example there are medications to treat depression, they create depression with all their side effects. The ‘war on cancer’ effort only creates more cancer. All of this ultimately results in a few gleaning profit by way of offering ‘solutions’ to the woes. it’s a Hegelian Ponzi scheme all the way from pit to pole.

    Difficult accepting that in some way all this crap was done in my name, for my benefit. Funny, I only see the majority of as my detriment. Again, my apologies for what is said to my government. Cannot wash away its sludge and shame enough.

      Where did you grow up? You type is a very unusual dialect here. I am not saying that it is “wrong” although some high school English teachers would so that, but I am curious. I am not asking what country, but what city and state?

      • Ben

        Grew up in a locality called NewBroadVille, TimberNewWay, BroadTimberMarket, depending on where you were at and the time of day. It is an area outside of Harrisonburg, VA where you have three small villages. New Market, Broadway, Timberville. And yes, I understand there is likely all kinds of grammar in error in my writing. Understand too some of my writing reflects an archaic sense of words, writing. Had various inputs on writing growing up, some even from the classical schools. That and at times I get lazy, tired, sloppy. My points remain though. Seems stupid to declare war on journalists calling out the war on terror when he trains soldiers who are terrorists now.

    • Gerry Costa

      ” From pit to pole ” I like that Ben and in substance you are right but what does that have to do with this article ????

      • Ben

        It has to do with the article in as much as this one thinks a war ought to be declared on journalists for questioning the war on terror, he ought to apply the same logic to the soldiers he is training that are being used to propagate terrorism.

    • Franie

      Oh wake up and reread the article with an intelligent mind this time.

  • jyrine

    I have read this short article 4 times and I still barely believe I’m setting in my home office, in the United States of America. I’ve been in combat, traveled the world, been to a lot of county fairs and I wouldn’t be so concerned if I didn’t know this one fact about the current administration. When the Communists in the White House are thinking of implementing a new policy they have some expendable fool broach it or something bazar but similar with the public so they can gauge the reaction. SEMPER FIDELIS

    • Melvin Gillham

      Thank you marine, for your service sir, and WELCOME HOME! This so called professor needs serious help. To attack people with military force for their opinions is a heinous violation of 1A rights. Lol I agree with your assessment that they do this to gauge public opinion. Truth be told a lot of Americans are awakening to the corruption and just how much the government does not represent the will of the people. I’m glad and proud to see that. There remains a very real threat within our borders though. Apart from our traitor in chief, Islamic communities and fenced compounds with armed patrols, and of course the illegal alien criminal scourge growing daily. Yet no action is taken upon those that should be acted upon. A very real dilemma that is growing. God bless you sir for your continued dedication to your country. I come from a military family my late father served in Korea and Vietnam, my brother served 2 tours in Vietnam 67-69 4th ID 173rd det. II corp. lrrp teams. Army airborne ranger spec ops..

  • he is right about islam! kill it like the cancer it is before it kills you.

    • KalevEfrayim

      I agree too, death to Islam but stay away from my right to disagree with the actions of a government that is out of control and becoming more tyrannical every day.

  • FEDup

    Sounds like Germany in the late 30’s. Maybe every West Point instructor should be required to pass a Constitution test.

    • Franie

      Believe me…every West Point instructor knows the Constitution like the back of their hands. What an absurd statement.

      • FEDup

        They may know the Constitution, but how they apply it, in this case is wrong. We have a right to disagree AS LONG AS we do it peacefully. Force against dissent is never good for the people.

        • Franie

          You misinterpreted this article.

          • TREX53

            I agree with you. Many times a Prof will state something off the wall to get the ball rolling, sometimes its good to hear something, a view that is different than than the normal PC Crap. Freedom of speech and of ideas is good FEDup, reread the article ten you will hear the challenge to think. This professor has a class that would be interesting to sit in on. USARMY Infantry Retired.

          • Rob Jones

            This isn’t an offhand remark but a determined reasoning against the Constitution for some possible unthinkable end for the people of America.

          • Franie

          • M. L.

            calling for KILLING people who dissent is a good “good idea” just to “get the ball rolling” on a topic/debate? You’re as much of an imbecile as the ‘professor’, moron.

      • M. L.

        yeah right they do….

    • Marty

      My guess is obummer passed a constitution test and look where that got us.

    • Rob Jones

      I sure does sound like wwii Germany. Just look at the way Obummer carries out his evil deeds. Right out the Communist Handbook, causing chaos, breaking down the middle class,carrying out false flag maneuvers, Renaming everything to make it more palatable. The use of false information doing everything in secret propaganda. Calling the citizens traitors, attacking every possible patriotic group.

      • Franie

        And the media – so-called journalist, eat it up. Sickening!!!

        • Rob Jones

          Franie cool I appreciate that.

  • Carolyn

    When the left pushes too far then the reaction will the same in the other direction, eventually. That’s how tyranny grows, from opposite directions until it engulfs the middle. Freedom is a set of laws. Politicians give special rights to this group and that group and undermine the concept of freedom and equality. The next thing you know you have people demonstrating for suicidal policies and those that want to deny any form of protest.
    Then you have rebellion, chaos, and a new and more brutal government emerges to deal with the problem that the government itself created.
    Communists have known that for years. Why can’t America figure that out?

  • wandamurline

    And this ahole needs to be fired and incarcerated.

    • Terry Riggs

      Then all the university professors, civil leaders and politicians, that openly make statements against that incites rioting and violence should also be dismissed. But, they have the right to their ideology and therefore untouchable

      • Franie

        Me thinks this Bradford guy is a republican, the reason why he got his walking papers and the liberal trash they call professors at these universities didn’t.

    • Franie

      You just left the reservation. Just who is it that’s accusing you of treason? I don’t know how you deciphered that he is committing treason against his own nation and the constitution. You’re nuts with your assessment of this article.

      • patriotrenegade

        I understood him to be speaking against dissenting US citizens and that means me. For islam, nukem.

        • Franie

          He was not speaking against the regular Joe, but against the Leftist propaganda machine known in this country as our major news media. He specifically mentioned journalist. You look at the so-called journalist at MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, CNBC, PBS, etc., these people HATE America. It’s reflected with the very same talking points regardless of what news outlet you listen too. You see the very same spin in your major newspapers too. George SOROS, the Bilderberg’s, etc., who by the way control all forms of media in this country, have a stranglehold on what they want as far as the NWO, and they won’t stop until their end goal is achieved. The majority of the responses to this article have totally been misinterpreted, thanks in part to this articles journalist, Cassius Methyl. Methyl has show his bias as a journalist, in smearing and distorting this article to shed a castigating light on Mr. Bradford. I’m really surprised many on this blog didn’t pick up on that.

          • patriotrenegade

            Then I stand corrected, blew that one, but don’t mind admitting being in error. enjoy the weekend.

            What has happened to our Nation???

            The communist schools curriculum and the communist media continue spreading lies and hate to confuse our children and enrage the ignorant or uneducated minorities!


            We MUST totally stop the mainstream marxist media, one of the most progressive groups in our nation. Now is our only chance to put the brakes on the 0bummer regimes insane destruction of our lives and our nation by eliminating the progressive propaganda.

            WE the PEOPLE — MUST– strike back at liberalism with ANY LEGAL means possible.

            DONT wait for “someone else” to do it or will never happen.

            YOUR FUTURE now depends on your involvement All politics is local. The people who plot against you are scared of you.

            The ONLY way to control comrade 0buma is to control the propaganda medias agenda.

            Without the lying, butt covering, marxist media 0bumma is NOTHING. The corrupt regime CANNOT withstand a frontal assault. Remember the United States was started by only 4% of the population (at that time) revolting against tyranny.

            We the people MUST change the status quo. NO longer can WE tolerate the lies and propaganda.

            Do YOUR part! SPEAK OUT! BEFORE that becomes ILLEGAL under 0buma doctrine. Remember, ALL politics IS LOCAL, each of us can matter.

            Dont forget to also do a frontal assault on the SCOTUS, make them see.

            comrade 0buma is the parrot head of the race baiters led totalitarian regime that is tearing apart the nation.

            Without the lying butt covering marxist media 0bumbles is NOTHING. The communist media is using the same tactics they used to destroy Czarist Russia and enslave its peasant population.

            The ONLY way America will gain back its independence is when we do a slash and burn campaign against the communist progressive news media and destroy it once and for all time.

            IF the thugs and ghouls in the whitehouse and the DOJ abolish the 2nd amendment , YOU will lose YOUR freedoms, your right to self defense and will become a slave to the regime and its corrupt thug regime. The first Amendment is already under fire by the regime.

            Think about it, think about it, think about it. Not ONLY will gun owners lose thier rights, YOU will lose YOURS also.

            WE the people MUST change the status quo. NO LONGER can we stand idly by while liberal radical robots control the nations future.

            The big issue for america will be whether YOU support his corrupt regimes agenda. ITs past time to stop the medias treachery, lies and destruction of YOUR Freedom. STAND UP people.

          • M. L.

            doesn’t matter WHO he’s talking about, when someone calls for killing people who dissent or are of a different viewpoint, THAT’S crossing the line and is EXACTLY what the liberal left is all about.

  • Gerry Costa

    They better start with the White House which at present houses the biggest terrorist threat to America and the rest of the world with his phony agreements and backroom deals with terrorist and communist countries.

      No… NOT

  • chrisnj

    Okay – assuming for a moment that this is not a total fabrication or mis-characterization of the assistant professor’s position (because of course THAT never happens) then on it’s face this assistant professor needs to be dismissed from his post for his lack of understanding and appreciation for American Constitutional government, and civilized society.

  • Gerry Costa

    ” War hawks in the military ” —– The moron who wrote this article needs to understand that OUR military has protected not only this country but many many countries throughout the world. When in the military — you train for war, hoping for peace but if war happens you damn well better be ready for it because it changes your whole damn life forever. I agree this guy is off base with his thinking but so is the writer of this article.

  • Terry Riggs

    Unlike most liberal universities, this is an opinion that cannot be part of a lecture program at USMA. Liberal universities can preach insolence, insurrection and violence as part of their lecture program. USMA adheres to a strict educational code of ethics. At Least it use to be 35 years ago. However, times have changed for the worst.

  • huntingfreedominAmerica

    There is some good points in what this West Point Professor has to say and do, how ever it goes aginist everything this Country was founded and built on. It’s truly sad the American people have turned there backs on our Armed Forces. It’s not all Americans but those that have know who they are and should be placed on a spot if it comes to it. There freedom came the same way su all of us they just take it for granite. The way things are going the time is near to the fall of the greatest Nation that ever rose to power. Once it’s gone, then who will the left wing loons point the finger too. Fools will never take blame for there actions just call others names and lie to the rest of the world how hard it is to live in a country that looked out for the evil of the world and tried to help the weak and helpless!

  • 3Curmudgeon3

    When General Sherman (Civil War) put his military plan in force, it was his goal to completely dismantle the enemy, which meant total destruction of anything that could be used against him and his army. That meant property as well as civilians. It was win at all costs to preserve the Union. That’s what I think the professor is eluding to and based on that, I agree with him.

    • desertcelt

      That created a seething hatred for the north and centralized power that exists to this day. We are not a nation united. Sherman’s methods weren’t too far removed from German Field Marshal Walter Model, who burned orchards and poisoned wells.

      • 3Curmudgeon3

        I haven’t actually seen that hatred while visiting there many times while researching relatives that fought in the war, but many people have no clue to why the war was actually fought. It was spawned early on by Alexander Hamilton and his desire for a monarchy.(reference “A Youth’s History of the Civil War by R.G. Horton.) (printed in 1867 and a hard book to find, but a good read, takes no sides) Of course Jefferson prevailed, but the dye was cast and resulted in the Civil War. It’s truly a shame our politicians don’t or have never read up on this stuff. Sherman under orders from Lincoln wanted this war to end and was tired of McClelland’s ineffective strategies and follow through. Sherman promised to get the job done, which is what he did and the resulting surrender at Appomattox. So how does this relate to now? Isis subscribes to a similar battle plan but is not unique to how Islam has fought their battles. Their take no prisoners is contrary to Christian beliefs and shocks us when they line up their enemies and behead or shoot them . Blowing up stuff even with their own people involved is just part of their strategy. Again most people, even politicians have not read the Quran or Unveiling Islam by two brothers that converted to Christianity. Truly that’s a shame, because the result is the knee slapping approach by letting really bad prisoners go in exchange for a traitor. That’s my two cents and not sent to convince you one way of the other.

    • M. L.

      Yeah right, you sound just like your daddy obomination.

  • Ron

    So, what is this guy a professor of? According to history, he is a professor of Hitler’s tactics.

    • Franie

      No he’s not you damned liar. Reread the article without the liberal biased slant.

      • Ron

        Franie, You apparently have a great lack of understanding history. This professor wants to blow away anyone (even their homes) of folks who disagree with his tactics of war. You see, I am retired from the US Army, a Ranger combat Veteran of Vietnam. If our government was to unleash our military to do what they were trained to do, then we would have no problems defeating our enemies. In Vietnam we were told not to fire on our enemy unless our enemy fired upon us first. I disregarded that order because as a trained Ranger I knew exactly when to fight, and when to fight was not to destroy innocent civilians (old people and babies) like this professor is saying. What he is saying is exactly what Hitler did in the late 30 and all through WWII when he was alive. So, get a grip Franie and hit the books. I was a history college major, an Army counterintelligence Agent and a Federal Agent. How about you Franie, other than calling people (damned) liars without cause, what have you accomplished?

        • M. L.

          No use arguing with a fool, as if it weren’t so patently OBVIOUS by that moronic wench’s rants…

  • seresmary

    Well well now, isn’t that what they do in Tyrannical Governments, round up all the those who oppose, like the press, media, etc. With them out of the way you can basically brain wash the rest of the population. What is it that our First Amendment says in the Constitution… WE have the right of free speech, to exercise our religion, etc….. but then we know that the SCOTUS has superceeded our Constitution now don’t we.

  • omni

    so basically he would attack everybody BUT ISIS! No wonder our military has been so ineffective-they are waiting to attack the REAL enemy-American citizens.

  • Joshua H. C.

    I believe that all Americans are being lied to by our government. I don’t really know how to explain it except to say, it’s a feeling I get reading any article about the U.S. Government. The whole truth is never shared in its entirety, we only get bits and pieces because they don’t want us to know because it’s apparently a matter of national security…. The truth is so well compartmentalized that the head doesn’t even know what the hands are doing. This is why there is so much paranoia in the world because deep down inside each one of us knows when we are being lied to. It’s frustrating and unfortunately it’s going to get worse. America is obviously in decline and loosing control and they know it just as well as the rest of us do. The government was created by the people for the people. Laws are not bigger or more important than people are and the government (or the people) shouldn’t hide behind the laws it creates to escape accountability.

    • Franie

      There’s truth in that. This article is a blatant smear by a liberal left wing dissident. I’ve had it with the crappy PC police.

      • M. L.

        Look dumba$$, there’s PC and then there’s DECORUM, look, it up you moronic wench.


    Professor fail to define a “war on terrorism”! If this mean an invasion of a country which did nothing to USA, or didn’t support terrorism, but nevertheless was invaded by US, is it really beyond any criticism? Afghanistan was invaded in spite the fact “Taliban” considered USA as a dear friend, and its only sin was that it provided shelter to bin Laden, who also helped them to fight Soviet Army. but Taliban was wiling to give up bin Laded if USA provided an evidence that bin Laden was guilty of 9/11. But Bush refused to provide anything to satisfy Taliban request. and now the entire country is destroyed and Taliban no more our friend, but a bitter enemy.
    Now, Iraq and WMD! Everybody by now knows that it was a hoax on Bush’s part to get approval to invade Iraq. So these two invasions didn’t do anything to fight terrorism, even more they created more terrorism that was before invasions. Bush knew that most of terrorists had come from Saudi Arabia, and what he did: danced with the SA king. So this professor should take lessons on logic before writing articles of this type.

  • Arizona Don

    Sounds like a real supporter of our constitution and the freedom of speech doesn’t he. Looks like the speech that really depends on the first amendment is the speech many do not like. Speech everyone agrees with needs no protection. A real freedom loving man I can see that. I wonder how many of the cadets see it?

    As many have said before me, if it were not for the second amendment the rest would not exist. Because of people like him.


    I think I must agree with the Asst. Professor. Those who are critics in today’s world are our enemies and working with the liberals to destroy America. We have many blacks who are destroying our country with their behavior of protesting, rioting, looting and burning other people’s property, both personal and business.

      You’re as loony and dangerous as he s.


        Thank you! I take that as a compliment although I know you didn’t mean it that way. You have a rude awakening coming to you when the SHTF.

        • Franie

          Mary, pay no attention to these liberal idiots.

          • M. L.

            you’re the idiot if you think for one minute I’m a liberal, actually your the one acting and responding just like the ‘liberal idiots’ by calling anyone who disagrees with you a ‘liberal’. You’re just another DUMBA$$$ repubiccan, (and no, I did NOT spell t wrong)

      • Franie

        Another illiterate who cannot comprehend bias journalism!!! Geez.

        • M. L.

          was responding to “marysweet’s’ comment SFB’s, not the authors

    • Rob Jones

      That is not what it says Mary. For just disagreeing with the gov or army they want to physically move kill stop maim us.

      • Franie

        Reread the article!! Mary is NOT WRONG!! The operative word in this article is ‘JOURNALIST’. Look at what journalist, particularly liberal journalist, who are now the enemy within, are doing to this country. Wake up Rob and reread the article …. Cassius Methyl is a slanted, biased, dumbass liberal joke of a journalist!!!

        • Ron

          That is not exactly what he is saying. He is saying kill the journalist (and their families) all everybody he knew that agrees with that journalist. While I detest leftist journalist (seriously) I cannot find an excuse to have them murdered.

        • Rob Jones

          Franie I read all your posts, pleazzze you moron. All you do is disparage curse mock. Nothing you say is correct. If the rights of one American is abridged I suffer too Thus I SAY ALL of US. It is nice for you to not care about anybody but your own worthless hide. I notice you are silly inept Dope. I believe you need to awake to your own short comings. STOP offering your worthless opinions, of course nothing anybody says will affect your air-head stubbornness you need to listen more and keep your opinions to yourself till you understand something anything.

        • Rob Jones

          ERRR reread the Constitution.

        • Rob Jones

          The article is trash, who needs more rebellion against what is true and right?

  • Doc

    First of all Prof. Bradford, has the right to his opinion, no matter how wrong it may be!! That being said, I find it very difficult to understand why “The Point” “TP”, would entertain someone of this nature, on their staff!! Someone to bring the extreme view, I do not believe, warrants such a position, at least not at TP!! I admit, there is confusion on my part, as to whether Prof Bradford is indeed on the staff at TP. I believe in FREE SPEECH!! One other thing, what Prof Bradford is describing are countries that America has had varied relations with, especially in the last century!! As for the NSLJ, the publication of Prof Bradford’s paper was no mistake, at least I don’t believe it was!!

  • 7papa7

    I agree with him. It is so nice to hear someone say that victory is the ONLY option and you do what ever is necessary to achieve that victory. There are civilian casualties in a war that’s just a fact of life. It is time to admit that we are at war with a radical bunch of psychos who you can NOT negotiate with, believe or deal with rationally. They only understand one thing strength and when you prove to be stronger than they are, they will back down. I remember back in 1980, on the day Reagan was sworn into office all of the hostages held by iran were released because of Reagan’s strength as Commander in Chief. They were afraid of him and didn’t want to mess with America. Bradford is showing definite strength and would probably end the islamic problem very quickly.

  • Obie Miller

    I would say that one should first define what we are calling “terror”. I have read several posts on the internet — from so-called respected sites– that describe patriotic, GOD loving, constitutionalist, conservative people as “terrorists”. Since this is the case, I would have to say that West Point Professor needs to re-think his statement, because, I have an opinion. too— I believe that those who ARE patriotic,GOD loving, conservative, constitution loving people are the kind of people America needs now more than ever!

  • DL Hancock

    I agree with much wof what this Professor says. Except using military force on someone disagreeeing with the tactics etc. Wow, these are Communist tactics, not american tactics. We DO NOT attack those who disagree, even though thats the way this admin thinks I would hope that the majority of the american people have not been sucked into this communist thinking.
    Folks, to ALL of you who have started to believe in silencing people and attacking people b/c they disagree with you, WAKE the FUDGE UP. Yolu are giving away the freedoms in which you enjoy. Right now you think you are silencing someone that disagree’s with you, however, once you allow it once, it will be against you the next time and oh how much you will whine then.
    Kids today ( 18-30 ) somehow have been brainwashed into thinking that we should ALL be in agreement on everything and that will NEVER happen.
    If you treally want for everyone to agree with everything, great, I do not accept homosexuality, therefore under your thinking, YOU MUST agree with me !!!!!
    Get you tiny pea heads out of your butts and growup. Its OK for people to disagree and to listen to another point of view.
    Once we get this communist out of the WH, things will get back to reallity and will NOT allow another President to hijack a country and attack those that disagree.

  • joshuasweet

    sure they will not go after the Treasonous traitors in office but go after the Press they will? where in their oaths of duty or office does it say that?

  • MontieR

    I agree with his solution for islam. Everything else not so much.



    • Franie

      Are you an illiterate? He’s referring to journalists, you know, the enemy within? The liberal slant on this article is sickening as is the ‘journalist’ who wrote it. Can’t believe you’re that gullible or just maybe that stupid for believing this crap!

    • Fredrick Rehders

      Arnold, I follow your posts and like a lot of what you say and that is also true of Trump, but if we discard the Constitution to get rid of the Muslims, what will protect us from our gov’t. or each other? I want our nation to return to our Constitution, not get around it.

  • HCUA

    It says, attacked Iran, not invade. You can attack anyone or any place verbally. That is probably what he meant.

    • Franie

      Never ASS-U-ME

  • Richard Bagenstose

    well ben , all those things you mentioned are not real wars , as for fighting terrorists, they have no rights to coverage under the geniva convention,because they are not a lagitament army ,they are terrorists , hiding behind innocent men women and children, and our laws say so, they have no right to be treated like humans , because they act like animals, i ain’t for war but , if your going to declare war , then do it and get it over with, all the phony wars they have , there are to many poloticans getting rich off of them, wy would they stop drugs from coming in when they are getting there fare share of the money , just like afganistan , it’s suppost to be a war , yet they refuse to let our military burn there opium fields and kill the financing of the tailiban, tells you they ain’t serious about it,

  • Rob Jones

    This guy is a nut case. 🙂

  • Bruce Wayne

    Professor Bradford,here’s an idea.How about we take you,put a rifle in your hand,and send you to the Middle East so you can fight ISIS.Lets see how long you will last.Something tells me that you won’t last very long.And to that I say ‘GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Franie

      Another ignorant jackass on this site!! Geez.

  • Franie

    I’ve had it. You people are shear ignorant idiots who cannot and will not open your eyes and comprehend what this dismal excuse for a journalist is doing. How gullible you all are!!! The dumbing down of America is just shining in the responses to this article.

    Reread this article with an intelligent and OPEN MIND!!! This is NOT about the minions, it’s about the shaded, liberal, biased journalist that are trashing and destroying this country!!

  • Original Rebel

    Maybe he means by “military strikes” it would technically be a knock upside the head to teach the activist journalists that they should report the truth – NOT THEIR STUPID OPINION. I happen to agree with this professor. What we should have done is go in there and annihilate as many muzzies as we can to teach them to live in harmony with the rest of the world or else! Should have been done long time ago.

  • slstanley1

    So the article says, “he spoke with such disregard for human rights that the National Security Law Journal had to apologize.”
    What about all the false claims that Tea Partiers and Christians are all terrorists worse than ISIS? I’d really love to have someone apologize for THAT!!!!

  • Carol Benson

    So this is how far to
    Fascism we have come: Professors who want t o jail anyone who
    Criticizes global warming proponents.
    Now this Froot Loop with a chest full of medals & zero understanding of the Constitution.


    Professor William C. Bradford is a very very dangerous person!!!!! This is the same garbage that Hitler’s bunch spouted off about in the early 20’s and later!!!! I did NOT bleed and loose men for this kind of NAZISM!!!!!

  • Ben

    We invaded Iraq. I misread and then wrote in error. Apologies for that. I knew what I meant to write but the fingers had other ideas going on.

Thank you for sharing.
