War is unwinnable when you don’t play to win

Saturday, 20 May 2017

Here’s something meeting the legal definition of obscenity: George W. Bush aka Bush 43 aka Dubya, who took up painting as a hobby, made a book of portraits of veterans wounded in wars he’s responsible for prolonging and the gay kenyan muslim for losing.

I supported the Iraq war because for 12 years saddam was a disruptive asshole who thumbed his nose at the world and whose antics were no longer tolerable after 9/11.

The issue which was never addressed before, during or after, was what to do with Iraq once saddam was eliminated.

The correct answer was to make Iraq a US territory divided into 3 states and ruled with an iron fist, while seizing enough oil to pay for the whole thing.

None of that happened. We never achieved (or declared) victory, unless you count neocons’ Endless War Welfare Program for the enrichment of the “Defense” Department as winning. (Even filthy proto-SJW communists against “all” war deserve partial credit for their opposition.)

The year we truly lost Iraq was 2005, when we let Iraqis make their new government an “islamic democracy” when no such thing can exist. islam is sharia, sharia is islam; there is no “moderate” or reasonable version of sharia. If the USA honored the Second Amendment with the same inflexibility as sharia, we’d have open carry in all 50 states (and way less crime).

There’s little else to say, except a repeat of the conclusion of the first paragraph: Republicans prolong wars they have no intention of winning and democrats lose winnable wars on purpose.

Death of America Part MDCLIV

Sunday, 14 May 2017

Last week I made the best decision of the year: to shut off news and opinions about news. The autistic screeching from all sides was making me schizophrenic and since there’s nothing I can do about any of it anyway, I’ve lost nothing. I feel much better and it’s freed up a lot of time to ponder.

What I’m left with for entertainment is youtube videos about anything but news, which equals mindless TV; the last major newsie headline I saw was a youtube sidebar about Fuckface Comey being fired.

UPDATE:  before I could post this, I accidentally caught another newsie sidebar while looking up H. Ross Perot. 

Brad “Chelsea” Manning to Remain on Active Duty, Receive Medical Care After Prison Release

Mentally-ill traitor-to-his-country Manning went on a hunger strike to force the US govt to cut his dick off at taxpayer expense, and they folded.  So now, in addition to the government-sponsored 3rd world invasion and deliberately prolonging Middle East wars for fun and profit, we’ve fallen from executing traitors to satisfying their every whim.

The U.S. government is just another mafia, but unlike a real mafia it’s too cowardly and dumb to kill its enemies.   

We have drug addicts serving 30 years in prison but child molesters and traitors committing espionage walking free.

I gotta be more careful not to glance at those fucking sidebars.
