The Con Game.

This time out, we look at Christian death threats, more ISIS murders, liberal anti-vax cartoons and why the whole anti-vax movement is so idiotic, and Yemen, yet another conflict that makes no sense in the Middle East.  Then we take some time to look at the recent Calgary Comic Expo disaster and why radical feminism and other leftist stupidity can be so dangerous.
It’s a good one, don’t miss it!

Coalition of the Disinterested

Bombing ISILObama has said that the U.S. would lead a vast coalition force against ISIL, but it looks like this supposed coalition is either utterly disinterested in actually doing anything against the Muslim terrorists, or they’ve just been bought off by the U.S. into putting in a minimal effort.  In fact, recently we performed some joint bombing operations with several Middle East nations who are our “allies”, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, but really, just how committed are these countries and how much do they really want to work hard to stop ISIL?  The answer is, not very much.  Qatar, for example, sent just two planes for the bombing runs.  Okay, granted, the entire Qatar air force is reportedly made up of 12 French Mirage fighters, they don’t have that much to give but it seems like a token effort and I’m sure that it was bought and paid for entirely by the U.S. government.

The problem is, nobody really wants to take part in this supposed coalition, especially those countries most likely to be directly impacted by ISIL’s actions. They know, as we all should, that military action is not going to stop ISIL and when they get overrun by the Muslim extremists, they at least want some plausible deniability that they didn’t act against their new religious overlords.  In fact, the overwhelming majority of countries that are supposedly part of the 40-member coalition are doing virtually nothing to actually help in the bombing.  Only a very few have committed even a single plane to the fight.  France, traditionally cheese-eating surrender monkeys, at least put in a couple of bombing runs before they ran away from the threat of Islamic violence.  I suppose that’s more than can be said for most and I have to give them some credit for it.

The real problem is, this is not a war that can be won, or at the very least, we’re not willing to do what it will take to actually win it.  I blame this on our utterly failed Middle East foreign policy for the past 60 years, where we’ve stuck our nose into the business of a people who want nothing from us but our absence and we’re unwilling to do that because they have oil and we have a massive ego.  Years ago, I might have said that pulling out of the region and allowing them to determine their own fate might have bought us some good will and perhaps done something to heal the rifts that have formed over the decades, but today, I don’t think that’s a workable solution anymore.

We have been personally responsible for raising several generations of utter fanatical Muslims who hate us because we’ve meddled in their affairs and now, just want to see us dead.  This isn’t a political hatred, it’s a religious one, now totally ingrained into their culture.  They have fighters who are ready and willing to die in order to fight the U.S. and are only too happy to engage in tactics that the rest of the world sees as barbaric to achieve their goals.  These are people who cannot be reasoned with.  These are people who cannot be negotiated with.  These are people who have to be killed, but we simply do not have the balls to do what needs to be done and any politician that even suggested that we carry through on that plan would find themselves on the streets in record time.  The western world simply doesn’t have the guts to make the difficult decisions to fix this problem.

What needs to be done?  In all honesty, I think we’re at the point of mass killing of all Muslim extremists.  That’s a hard thing to say and it will almost certainly backfire on us because it will just generate more extremists from the pool of available Middle Eastern Muslims.  This is, at least potentially, a class of enemy that we’ve never faced.  Even the Nazis gave up against forces of overwhelming superiority.  I’ve heard reports of Muslim extremists going up against impossible odds, willing to die horrible deaths to get their 72 virgins.  These are fanatics.

So what do we do?  I don’t know that there is anything we can do.  Sure, there are things that need to be done but America lacks the will to actually do them.  We want to fly our planes and drop our bombs and somehow believe that American ingenuity will win the day and it just won’t happen against religious fanatics.  They’re willing to die if they can take some of us with them.  They’re willing to kill civilians, just because they don’t believe in the same imaginary friend in the sky.  They know no borders, they know no compromise and they’re not going to stop until someone puts a stop to them permanently.

And we don’t have the balls to do it.  We’re screwed.

My Thoughts on the 9/11 Anniversary

remembering-9-11-attacksTo be honest, I don’t pay any attention to 9/11, in fact, I didn’t even realize that it was today until I heard them talking about it on the radio. It’s just another anniversary of a horrible event, but I don’t really feel bad about it, I don’t feel the need to memorialize it, it just is what it is and that’s all.

I was thinking about the day it all happened, I was on my way to work and heard it on the radio.  When I got to work, I turned on the radio and let it play for a while, at least until it became clear that the people reporting had no more clue at the moment than they did an hour or so before so I turned it off and got back to work.  I remember it being surreal, but I was never emotionally impacted by it, it was never the kind of abject horror that I remember a lot of people talking about.  It was another terrible event in a world of already terrible events.  I remember thinking we’d go and kick the ass of those responsible, but I was wrong, we never bothered to do that, we just wasted billions upon billions of dollars and thousands of American lives and really got nothing for it.  I suppose I can’t be that surprised.

Yet here we are, 13 years later and what have we accomplished?  Oh sure, Osama bin Laden is dead.  Whoopie.  That was a pathetic exercise that took us years to accomplish and what did it get us in the long run?  Now we face bigger, more dangerous terrorist organizations like ISIS/ISIL and we’re still fighting the same war that we’ve been fighting for over a decade and not getting ahead at all.  We’ve just managed to make the Middle East even more radical, as I predicted we would, by flying our dick-waving military into their business and planting our American flag straight up their ass.  We’ve just made things worse.

Seriously, we either need to fish or cut bait.  We need to do what needs to be done, and seriously, what needs to be done is not pretty and it isn’t nice and there isn’t a nice way to do it.  It’s essentially genocide on a large scale.  Effectively, it’s killing every single radical Muslim on the planet, men, women and children.  Of course, that will never happen, it’s politically incorrect and the ramifications of such an action are entirely unacceptable.  Hell, Obama won’t even admit that ISIS/ISIL is a Muslim organization, for fear of offending someone.  So we can’t do that.

The only other option is to get out of the Middle East entirely.  Get out of Israel.  Get out of Saudi Arabia.  Leave the Muslims to their own devices.  They have their sphere of influence, we have ours.  Never shall the two meet.  They still have to sell their oil, we still have to buy it.  Leave it at that.  Set up a military coalition that will stop them from being expansionistic, just like NATO was supposed to stop Soviet expansionism.  Then I got to thinking, considering what a failure NATO has been, why not disband that and put together a general-purpose worldwide organization that will go after *ANY* nation that attacks another.  Any nation, without exception.  If one nation, and it doesn’t matter which one it is, goes after another, the weight of the planet comes down on their shoulders regardless.  It would essentially end wars, but of course, the U.S. would never allow that to happen, it would get in the way of our international dick-waving.

And so, on this 13th anniversary, while I’m sorry that 9/11 ever happened, a lot of it we brought down on ourselves and while the people who died didn’t deserve it, they were innocents, the nation deserved a good kick in the teeth.  Too bad we didn’t actually learn our lesson and now we’re going to be embroiled in an even more dangerous battle against an even more radical enemy who still hates us, not because of our freedom, but because we’re international assholes.

We won’t learn our lesson this time either.
