Colonel David Hunt's book is a call to arms and a gut check. If the American people don't demand protection from terror killers, we won't get it. Finally a book that doesn't pull any punches. Colonel Hunt proves that winning the "War on Terror" doesn't require a whole lot of sophistication - just a willingness and conviction to do what is necessary. Unfortunately, by clearly offering a blueprint for action as a back-drop, the reader realizes that America no longer has the courage to act with ferocity.

This complete summary of "On the Hunt" by Colonel David Hunt, a retired army colonel and military analyst, outlines his argument that America's leaders have wrongly approached terrorism-related issues following 9/11 with half-measures and timidity.

Colonel David Hunt appeared on the Howie Carr Show to talk about his book, published b. In the book he discusses how to win the war on terrorism and argues for a new approach in dealing with Iraq. He also discussed his opinions on illegal immigration, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Patriot Act. He responded to listener telephone calls.

It is elegantly written in a bracing, martial style, liberally laced with expletives and earthy phrases like everything have tried has proven to be worth less than a bucket of warm piss. I particularly enjoyed your quip on page 52 when talking about Muqtada al-Sadr, viz. the fat bastard with a beard.

They Still Don’t Get It! Fox News military analyst Colonel David Hunt cuts like a buzz saw through the half-measures and half-truths, the dangerous timidity, and the outright stupidity that–if left unchecked–will lead America to lose the War on Terror. “Colonel David Hunt’s book is a call to arms and a gut check. If the American people don’t demand protection from terror killers, we won’t get it. On the Hunt lays out a clear strategy for our survival.”—Bill O’Reilly, Fox News Channel“Clausewitz would read this great book, and so should you. With his bracing On the Hunt, Colonel Hunt has told us how to win the War on Terror. Our country would be a lot better off if we all take his words to heart, do what he says, and then buy another copy to send to your congressional representatives.”—Bob Drury, coauthor of Halsey’s Typhoon“Colonel Hunt is on top of his game in On the Hunt. It’s a no-holds-barred rant–he skewers neocon, moonbat, and pencil pusher alike. If you think the colonel’s blunt on TV, wait until you read him blistering the hacks of every stripe who are blowing the War on Terror and still don’t get it.”—Howie Carr, radio host and bestselling author of The Brothers Bulger

Great content as he doesn't pull any punches on any of the zeroes who have f'd Iraq up to this point. Franks shags butt when it looks bad, unable to commit troops to catch Bin-Laden as he is risk averse. Two 4-star generals have little to no combat but are running things (quite poorly) and then one of them - General Casey is promoted?! The question I have for Hunt is, why do all officers only disagree when they are retired? Except for, as Hunt points out, Shinseki. I will tell you why...because we have no real military leaders, only talking heads with no spines. In addition, I would like to point out a little screw-up in the publishing of the book and an email I sent to Colonel Hunt and his publishing house:

"I have previously written Colonel Hunt to praise him on the content of his book. Unfortunately, this email will be to chastise on the poor editorial job done as some 5 pages were left out of the "Appendix" - pp. 33-37, which would complete Section IV and contain Section V. If you look at the page numbering of the "Appendix" you will see it jumps from page 32(236) to page 38(237) and the last sentence on page 32(236) confirms the missing page because it doesn't finish the meaning and the first sentence on page 38(237) has no beginning."

"Funny how Hunt hates the Navy, but this lowly E6 Gunners Mate found this O6's error."

Col Hunt is right on the money. Until America puts the conduct of the war in the hands of field commanders with combat experience, we will not win. I do not believe in a cut and run philosophy, but politician must remove themselves from the tactical decision making. I recommend this book.

Hunt comes across in much different way than what we see on Fox News. Yes, his TV image is of a tough, hard nosed military veteran but the tone of his delivery is so strong at times you have to put the book down for a minute. The language is tough but our Nation whether or not most of it believes it or not is in the toughest battle in its history.

It takes courage to say that we are fighting a religious war and Hunt makes no bones about it. We are fighting religious fanatics who will go to any extreme to achieve their goal which is a way of life somewhere between the Taliban rule of Afghanistan and the mullahs of Iran, I have heard no else make this assertion but Colonel Hunt. Further it takes courage to point out in no uncertain terms that we have a major leadership crisis that is keeping us from achieving victory. The blunt, direct to the point Colonel Hunt deliver facts as he finger points at The White House, Pentagon, and both sides of the aisle in Congress as he gets the reader to focus on the failures of our national leadership to do the right thing if we want to win this war.

While being critical of the mis-steps along the way in the fight against an enemy who knows no fear or shame; Colonel Hunt is constantly praising the dedication of those on the front line who are giving all and doing an unbelievable job. He reminds us of what we should be doing for our men and women in uniform despite our concerns about the policy that has but them in harm's way.

If you think the war on terror is just in Iraq and Afghanistan, Hunt bursts that bubble. He painfully reminds us that our open borders to both the North and South are being used by terrorists. He presents plenty of hard evidence in the appendices at the end of his work that lay bear the facts that we are being invaded.

When you read this book, the hunt for the truth on the war on terror is over.

I love Colonel David Hunt; I listen both to him and Ralph Peters, read their books when I can get my hands on them. Heard about them from watching the O'Reilly Factor on Fox News.

The Appendix to this book is just as eye-opening as the book chapters. Sure there are poor, wretched people crossing our borders from crime infested Mexico, but there are also a lot of terrorists who are not Mexican that are crossing BOTH our southern and northern borders. Terrorists from mid east countries given legal documents from places like-VENEZUELA. Terrorists spilling over our borders in droves from even Canada, come bearing materiel to cities like New York's Time Square....

WAKE UP PEOPLE-and stop watching Jon Stewart, ha ha ha isn't that funny??? We're about to have Sharia law in our country, ha ha ha isn't that funny. You know if they can get you laughing, you can believe anything, hmm. That's entertainment.

PLEASE READ!!!!!!!!!

If anyone doubts Col David Hunt's capacity to clearly articulate how we allowed terrorism to gain a foothold, then I suspect the reader's mind is totally closed and sadly unable to increase their awareness of the world. Hunt traces recent acts of terrorism through several presidencies. He avoids casting blame on Democrats or Republicans as he traces the incremental steps that led to 911, etc. There is much blame to pass around, but Hunt prefers to focus on factual things that allows each and every one of us to draw our own conclusions. At times it was depressing as the United States seems to be a major focal point for our enemies to attack and separating the political from the military was his most difficult challenge, a task he mastered very well.
