Or enough of them do to cause a mild concern.
I was thinking about a pleasant little fun article on fall getaways, now that autumn is finally here. I’ll get to that directly. However I think maybe trying to avert nuclear war is just a little more important.
The Whitehouse, the Congress and the Pentagon are run by the goddamdest bunch of homicidal, lunatic, idiotic fools ever hatched.
The U.S. is fighting a soft, undeclared war in Syria. The details are purposefully murky but it seems we are backing various terrorist organizations aligned (sometimes) with rebels fighting the Assad regime. As usual the motives behind this war are: keeping Tel Aviv happy; helping the military-industrial criminal complex turn a profit, and; helping Satanic banksters print fortunes out of thin digital air. A side benefit is that the war displaces and angers people, giving Washington and its European fiefs importable terror ammunition in their greater war on their own peoples.
The problem with this “splendid little war” is the Russian element. The Russians are backing Assad for their own reasons and are intent on stamping out radical Islamic terrorists. Their reasons for involvement are: stopping the spread of terrorism to Europe and Russia (kind of important) and; maintaining stability in the region where Russia has trade interests (Assad may not be the nicest guy but he does hold things together – or did until the U.S. started meddling). The U.S. interests are the four I cited above. Which one benefits you?
The U.S. and Russia reached a cease-fire agreement in an attempt to work out issues and end the war. Washington immediately violated the terms by bombing a national military convoy – a move supporting ISIS. The U.S. does this on a weekly basis. The same ISIS that shoots gays in Florida, stabs Christians in Minnesota, and bombs the handicapped in New York. Putin has concluded the people in and around D.C. are beyond insane and not trustworthy with a water gun. He may be on to something.
The new lie in D.C. is: We didn’t do it! Russia did. All the evidence points to the DOD/CIA but the fabrication points to Putin.
The American projectionist fantasy loonies are out in force:
At the U.N.:
The US accused Russia on Sunday of supporting “barbarism” over the bombing of the Syrian city of Aleppo as the west stepped up diplomatic pressure on Moscow.
Accusing Russia of supporting a Syrian regime offensive that has derailed a ceasefire agreement negotiated between Washington and Moscow, Samantha Power, US ambassador to the UN, said Russian and Syrian forces were “laying waste to what is left of an iconic Middle Eastern city”.
In a blistering speech to an emergency UN Security Council meeting, Ms Power said: “Instead of pursuing peace, Russia and Assad make war.”
While Moscow was likely to argue that it was pursuing terrorists in Syria, she said that “Russia is espousing fiction”. “What Russia is sponsoring and doing is not counterterrorism; it is barbarism,” she added.
This is the Ivy-League, Irish, Anti-American, delusional, puesdo-academic, political hack of a harpy calling the traditional, Western Civilization defenders barbarians. It’s like the pot calling the kettle black only that the pot is smoking pot and the kettle is an intelligent, responsible government bewildered by the brazen stupidity of the pot.
It’s worse in D.C., where Defense Criminal Ash Carter and Marine Corps Crony Joseph Dunford met with the Arkham Asylum Committee of the Senate. The low-rent discussion centered on the recent bombing and cover-up lies.
Both of these tax-paid morons admitted they “had no facts” about the convoy bombs. However, they were armed with a healthy dose of neurotic fantasy.
“‘Not only our people – our defense industry partners, too, need stability and longer-term plans to be as efficient and cutting-edge as we need them to be,’ Carter told the senators.” How nice of him to think of the MIC at a time like thi$.
Carter, as crazy as any I have ever heard of, responded to the prissiest Senator in Washington, Lindsey Graham, that “the Russians are responsible for this strike whether they conducted it or not…” Whisky Tango Foxtrot? Again, those facts things…
Dunford, feeling left out of the madness, piped up about a “no-fly” zone: “Right now… for us to control all of the airspace in Syria would require us to go to war against Syria and Russia.” A war with Russia. From the same people who couldn’t beat nine lightly armed goat-herds in Afghanistan. Brilliant! Dunford effectively made the argument that D.C. is a “no-thought” zone.
Stirred out of his angry stupor Sen. McCain argued we could impose a zone without war. He has direct experience with the subject, having himself so deftly navigated such a zone in war previously.
One thing no one talked about is that America has absolutely no business in Syria whatsoever. None. Well, no legitimate interest. Sure banks and our defense industry “partners” need some more money. Sure we do get jihadi shooters in the women’s department at Macy’s. People get killed there and here. But are these really worth our time? Worth our lives?
Duck and cover is retro cool!
It would be one thing if this were another Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya. It’s not. “War against Syria AND RUSSIA!” Russia has nukes and the ability to get them to America in a hurry. They’re conventional forces ain’t too shabby either. These reasons have long prevented war with Russia. However, today, there is a new breed of stupid on the Potomac.
For more information, see Fred Reed’s analysis of the situation: Hillary, Trump, and War with Russia: The Goddamdest Stupid Idea I Have Ever Heard, and I Have Lived in Washington.
There really is no point in contacting “your” elected officials. They’re not yours and they’re crazy besides. “Your” two presidential choices each offer more of the insane same. Bought and paid for.
You’re only choices are: 1) write a letter to Putin and plead for his understanding; 2) build a fallout bunker in Idaho; 3) pray that the Lord deliver us from this nightmare and these reprobates.
Or you could just keep you’re head in the TeeVee. Keep watching overweight, low-IQ, millionaire felons who hate you play with a ball.
PS: A preview of my fall recommendations: the mountains, the mountains, the beach, a sea-side villa, and the mountains. The younger males among you might plan a trip to Syria if things go ill.
