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.

SHOULD OBAMA WIN/SHOULD McCAIN WIN

Saturday, 18 October 2008

DISCLAIMER: I’m telling you straight up, I’m voting for John Sydney McCain III and Sarah Louise Heath Palin and this post reflects that POV. If you’re going to vote for Barack Hussein Obama, remember to vote on November 5th. Or be punished with a baby.


REGARDING BOTH MEN: I’m disappointed neither said much about freedom, optimism and America’s unique greatness during this election. I’m extremely disappointed neither man said anything about the Constitution and limiting government power. At least with McCain there’s an inkling of hope in regaining sanity, while Obama thinks, as all liberals must, the Constitution was written on an Etch-A-Sketch and is his to shake away the parts he doesn’t like (or add a RIGHT to everything from free cable to personal bodyguards to stop school bullies).

SHOULD OBAMA WIN it’s tempting to say that America as we know it will pass away. But don’t. There’s plenty to be positive about. We’re not quite there as far as a Second Civil War goes, if only because no one really knows what they’re fighting for or against. Confusion reigns and it’s preferable to anarchy.

SHOULD OBAMA WIN (not by a “landslide”, he’s not the other Hussein) there’s no reason for melodrama or pessimism. Democracy is self-correcting, and Barry’s Ascension might prove a real blessing, galvanizing the Right in a way not seen since ’94, when Congress after 40 years flipped to a Republican majority, keeping Billy Clinton in check, despite his lack of pants.

SHOULD OBAMA WIN how fast people caught in the middle wake up and realize they’ve re-elected Jimmy Carter with a better tan depends on how fast Obama’s economic schemes are unleashed. My guess is he’ll be low-key for “the first 100 daze”, drinking in the worship of the mainstream media, until even they will have quieted, waiting for the show to begin, SHOULD OBAMA WIN.

No matter how hard the media will try to conceal the ensuing flops and failures of what is essentially regurgitated marxism, the matured internets will be there as never before, documenting every misstep. I don’t mind the ignorance or foolhardiness of the American people, as long as it hurts. Stupid should hurt, and when you put your hand on a hot stove it’s your hand that should burn, no one else’s.

SHOULD McCAIN WIN it will be nothing less than a second chance for America. McCain isn’t a maverick so much as a 3-legged dark horse. He’s going to need a complete overhaul, including a visit from the ghost of Reagan. Republicans have been shitting the cot on their core values for so long that the lies of the left aren’t worth addressing, there’s too much to be done. There are bodies stacked to the rafters in the cellar: compromised, sissified Rightards still in office have no time to worry about a dead dog planted on the stoop by the New York Slimes.

SHOULD McCAIN WIN or even if he loses, these second-chance Republicans better get back to principles or they’ll find they have a very short shelf life; when it’s time to act they’ll either be fresh and ready or thrown away. That’s as it should be. Nothing less than their best will be acceptable, and should they keep on doing the same things they’ve been doing, they will deserve their crucifixions. SHOULD OBAMA WIN, true conservatives, already livid, will be trembling among stacks of wooden boards and nail guns.

I really wish the ticket was Palin-McCain. But you can’t have everything.

The most important thing you can take from this enjoyable babble is this: America was founded by people smarter than you and me. They split the government’s power into thirds so that no President could turn into a monarch, nor a mob of shits like Congress into the Central Comittee. We also have 200 million guns, and despite what politically-correct weenies may believe, we don’t run from a fight.
