Pearl Harbor By Design

I am not a military strategist but, if you will indulge me, how wise is it to compact so many naval assets into such  a tight, hostile area to our interests on all sides?

The U.S. Navy doubled its presence in the eastern Mediterranean over the past week, effectively adding two destroyers to the three that generally patrol the region. The five destroyers are carrying a combined load of about 200 Tomahawk missiles, officials say.

Shouldn’t you, oh I don’t know, be sure that you are going to get authorization before putting all of your eggs in this basket?  To begin, you’re telegraphing your every move which may be the point if you are a little bird who wants to puff up your little bird chest.  However, if the vote comes down on “no” and you attack anyway then you are creating a Constitutional crisis by choice.  If the vote comes down on “no” and you leave the area then you hand Syria a major victory over the paper tiger that is the U.S. under Barack Obama with all those destroyers making a u-turn and sailing off into the sunset of the Post-American world.

And to what end?

Mr Obama said any strike would be to “send a shot across the bow” and give a “pretty strong signal that [Syria] better not do it again”.

None of this makes any sense. “Send a pretty strong signal”???  Who writes this shit?  A leather belt sends a strong message.  Tomahawks send death from above.

You want Assad gone but you’re not going to remove him.  You want to spank him on the ass with Tomahawk missiles and then turn around and leave anyway?  He’s not a dog who pissed the rug “and you better not do it again”.  Our military is not called upon for “norm enforcement” and to be global disciplinarians.  They are trained to kill and if needed to try and keep the peace afterwards.

Hang the albatross of Syria around Russia’s neck.  They are the ones providing them with all of the logistical support and weapons they need to attack us and put down their bloody rebellion.  They are the enemy.  The operative phrase is “selling Assad weapons to attack us”.  Putin has declared war on us by his Syrian proxy through these actions.

Not in the eyes of Barack Obama though.  Syria is a mess to try and pin on Republicans somehow.  You know.  The real enemy in all of this.

If you are Russia or China, the time to attack us is now.  They could wipe out our naval might in a day and we’d be playing catch-up for years.  That might be the point of Obama’s consolidation of our naval fish in the Mediterranean barrel.  If he was fine with getting Seal Team 6 killed as tribute to his Taliban “peace partners” and letting Benghazi burn so the Brotherhood could get the weapons Congress wouldn’t send to them then setting our destroyers out to be attacked sounds like it is right up his alley.

If he would invite a Muslim cleric to damn Seal Team 6 to hell at their own funeral, there is absolutely nothing beneath this traitor.

The Great Divider Demands Your Assent (Even Though He Doesn’t Need It Anyway, So Nyah)

David Gregory appeared in full Indian headdress with his war paint on this morning to cast aside the peace pipe with a bloodthirsty, lazy-eyed John F’in Kerry over a little known continent known as Syria.  How different is today’s Meet the Press from the one the late, great Tim Russert used to host?  For one, there were no video clips from 2007 where John Kerry, in an effort to stick a finger in George W. Bush’s eye, laid down in bed with Assad in a matter traditionally frowned upon in the Bible.

In 2007, Nancy Pelosi, over strong objections from the State Department, visited Syria, and said, “The road to Damascus is a road to peace.” Senator John Kerry predicted that “Syria will change as it embraces a legitimate relationship with the United States.”

 …

A WikiLeaks document revealed that Kerry told the emir of Qatar in November 2010 that Assad is a man who “wants to change” and that Israel should cede the Golan Heights to the Syrians “at some point.”

When is someone going to call this traitor on his bullshit?  I guess that’s left to me.  He was wrong then and he’s wrong now.  I know we’ve always been at war with Oceania but my memory is not so short that I don’t remember The Logan Act defying Kerry draped all over Assad like one of his shiny suits calling him “a reformer” and demanding that we re-open our embassy because Unilateral Cowboy McBushitler or something.  Not that the embassy closing had anything to do with Assad’s regime ordering the assassination of  Lebanese Prime Minister Rafic Hariri in 2005 that facilitated their Cedar Revolution or Assad using Lebanon as a launching pad for attacks on Israel.

I still remember Hijab Nancy.  The Whore of  San Fransicko offering Damascus her ancient holes in exchange for a photo op to show the folks back home how Bush was isolating good, decent men like Bashar with his chimpy, simpleminded ways.   She calls for war now as well with no so-called journalists drilling her like a Gulf Coast jackup rig for her past love affair with the terrorist state of Damascus.

Where are our brave, young liberals filling in the role of much needed cannon fodder at our nation’s recruiting stations?  Who will be the first to die for Obama’s mistake of painting himself into the corner and rushing to war over something as petty as his monument-sized opinion of himself?  I can think of several dozen off the top of my head – and that’s just locally.  🙂

I mean – don’t get me wrong.  It’s not like I’ve never seen a hypocrite before.  Just not so many in the same place at once.

Exit Note:  Back to Meet The Press.  I loved the pictures of gassed children on my television this morning.  Class act that.  Did Assad do it?  Did al Qaeda in Syria in an attempt to goad us into action?  Who cares because emotional manipulation!  Those pictures were intentionally left out in the build up to Iraq and more kids are killed on a weekly basis in America’s many abortion clinics and those pics never see the light of day.  If we’re really concerned about kids being killed in an inhumane fashion, we need surgical aistrikes on every Planned Parenthood office by tomorrow morning.

Bonus Bootlick / Turd Polishing / Peter Puffer Award:  F. Chuck Todd’s “The Week That Was” segment focusing on Dear Leader’s courageous about face from War Any Minute to War One of These Days – Maybe Not Now But Soon!  One day we’re gonna smack down some brown people  and we’re all gung ho followed by pics of dead kids, chemical warfare and six destroyers already on the scene in the Mediterranean Sea.  The next day it’s hurry up and wait.   But then, a miracle!  Obama changed his mind and sought Congress to share the blame after he couldn’t get one ally to sign on to his Chickenhawk misadventure because Smart Diplomacy.  As Todd said of John Kerry’s eloquence to describe the Syrian situation – his “strong, passionate…Churchillian” orations successfully won everybody over to doing the opposite of his demands.  What a week and we were all there to see history in the unmaking.  ;P
