One of the requests I have for people making comments on this blog is to keep profanity to a minimum. In the case of the above referenced article the minimum amount of acceptable profanity is that this Administration is a collection of the dumbest Fucks in the world!
Forget the fact that you have already told the enemy WHEN you are going to quit fighting him. Forget the fact that you have already shown him every card in your hand in another war. Consider only that you have absolutely no position of strength to bargain from!
The time to negotiate with an enemy is when he is on his knees with your sword at his throat and then it’s called dictating terms of surrender. The Taliban and al Qaeda both knew going in to this that the US would come, flex its muscle, do some bragging and then leave feeling self-important. All they have to do is make a show of being “defeated” so the US can have it’s “peace with honor” (same Bull as in Vietnam, interpret as going home with our tail between our legs”) then when we have pulled our troops out they will come in and do what they wanted to do all along. The enemy in Afghanistan and Iraq has been fighting this war for over 800 years. What is ten years with the US?
The US must realize 2 things. First that unless you are going to claim the country as US property there is no way to have an achievable goal in any of these country’s. If you are not willing to take and hold ground then you are wasting your time. Secondly, none of these country’s are worth a single American life.
One has to think that the Governments purpose in the last 50 years has been to keep the American public occupied with the distraction of war so that they can consolidate their grip on the purse strings so that they cannot be displaced without great cost to us, the American people.
So Iran is out playing with its ships in the little bathtub called the Strait of Hormuz. They are threatening to blockade the Strait if more sanctions are imposed as suggested by European countries and the West in general.
My question is how long Iran’s 6 little ships would last against a few flights of Mirage, Harriers, and F18’s? They have a small fleet of little subs which should give all our ASW technology a little workout and they of course would lay mines like they did before.
All in all I suspect the saber-rattling will continue till someone finally squashes the Khomeini under their boot heel like the roach he is.
While I was reading yet another story on the intolerance of Islam, I happened to see this article on CNN. http://www.cnn.com/2011/12/24/opinion/urry-two-earths/index.html?hpt=hp_c1
I thought, “what a perfect solution!” The astronomers need to have unlimited funding to find an Earth type planet , and NASA needs to have an unlimited budget to build a new “ark” so we can ship all of the Muslims in the world off to their own planet. Maybe if they are busy trying to survive on a virgin planet they won’t have time to worry about killing other people.
Here’s a philosophical question: “If Hitler had set as his goal the eradication of Islamists instead of Jews would the Allies have supported or opposed him?”
Merry Christmas to all. Take a day of from bitching and enjoy whatyou are blessed with.
Another bit of wisdom sent by one of my friends.
Why the U.S. was downgraded:

• Outstanding balance on
the credit card:
• Total budget cuts:
Now Lesson #2
Here’s another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:
