It’s not even Halloween and already the witches and hawks are buzzing the towers. We are in such a fiscal crisis with sequestration and debts that the military had to cancel fireworks and air shows for the 4th of July.
Veterans are being tossed out and denied coverage and the yahoos in Washington want to start another war.
To be fair, if this was a war in the National Interest of the United States I would reluctantly support this effort. Or if America had been attacked. Or even one of our dwindling numbers of allies who already knew we were spying on them and didn’t care.
I wouldn’t be happy with another war but I would sit down and take a big gulp of “shut the heck up” and let it alone.
If Syria at least had oil I could justify kicking some Arab butt just to be able to afford to get to work and back.
But they don’t have oil. They didn’t attack us (yet) and they are not even enriching Uranium. All they have are two groups of people that hate America. But their hate expands beyond that! Of course hating Jews is a given. They aren’t Israel and they are located in the Middle East, so hating Jews is just taken for granted. But they are also killing Christians! Ok. Muslims in general hate Christians. But burning Churches, killing children and generally going completely nuts is not all that unusual for these lunatics.
So, we now hate Syrian President Bashar Assad who it seems only yesterday was buddy buddy with our new Secretary of State Jim Carrey. No wait. It’s that other tall skinny left winger John Carrey. Or Kerry. There are almost 57 ways to spell Cary. It is hard to keep them straight.
But however he spells his name, this Sec State is pretty sure Assad used chemical weapons on his own people. But there are numerous reports that the “Rebels” who are really Al Quaeda’s little brother the Muslim Brotherhood – or the MoBo’s as I like to call them, also used these nasty weapons.
But our Intelligence Community is perfect, right? Oh, well. There’s that little thing in Iraq that the Liberals still believe was a Bush League Lie about WMD’s.
But they got it right this time, we think.
Well, I’m not going to believe there are chemical weapons in Syria until one of the most knowledgeable leaders in the intelligence community says there is. I am referring, of course, to “Fast Eddie” Showden the newest US defector to Russia.
If he reports that it is true, I think we’d have to believe him.
Face it. Obama went on vacation, bought a new dog and probably a second jet for the new dog, and came back to Washington rested, relaxed and bored out of his mind.
What better way to get your kicks than bomb the hell out of some country?
Sorry, Barry. I’m not going to support you on this one. It reminds me of the last election here at home. We have a choice between two really bad options. Bomb Assad or the MoBo’s.
I say let’s go all or nothing. Let’s either leave them alone or nuke the entire country.
I vote for “leave them alone” but this is America. Our votes don’t count.
