Happy Xmas (The Surge is Under Way)

Just in time for Christmas, The U.S. Defense Department says the first of the additional 30,000 troops (and up to 56,000 military contractors) ordered to Afghanistan by President Barack Obama have begun to arrive in the country. I cannot think of a more fitting gesture to usher in the Prince of Peace’s birthday. The WWJB (Who Would Jesus Bomb) bracelet and sticker brigade is surely rejoicing.

Dear readers, I wish to remind you of a quote from Obama’s October 2, 2002 Iraq war speech.  “I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars.” In Obama-speak, a “dumb war” is a war that does not materially benefit the military-industrial complex, fund the black budget through opium trafficking, or secure trans-national oil pipelines. Energy, dope, and war-profiteering is the name of the game in the nasty business of geo-politics. For the common folk,  these are politically unpalatable justifications for maiming, killing, and destroying other people’s stuff. Our handlers know that we can’t handle the truth. Therefore, the ulterior purposes are conveniently concealed under the endlessly recycled “threat to national security” rationale.

Many on the Left (progressives and left-leaning moderates alike) feel utterly betrayed by Obama’s war escalation strategy. As the luster rapidly wears off Obama’s thin coat of veneer, increasing numbers of his former supporters are agonizing over his George W. Bush emulation antics (In fairness to Obama and W, the November 22, 1963 coup d’état in Dallas foreclosed the ability of one man to steer the course of the nation unimpeded). I know exactly how they feel. As a former card-carrying Republican I proudly voted for George W. Bush in 2004. I let my country down when it needed me the most, and for that, I am deeply ashamed. Please accept my apology America.

    I was in the hospital during the election so I am unaware of what happened in the run-up to it. I can say that I was leaning towards Obama in the year prior. His actions don’t necessarily surprise me. It’s one more example of the lack of leaders we have. Could be happening for a reason. Yeah, maybe some higher intelligence is telling us to lead ourselves to the promised land and to hell with all of the saviors.

    I find myself frequently in the company of Liberals (though the best fucks I’ve ever had were Republicans….which explains my morbid fantasies concerning Sarah Palin). The Liberals are shattering into a million pieces. Taken into two main groups, you have the believers whom, like Christians, refuse to suspend their belief that their Messiah (Obama) will eventually stop the lying, killing and maiming and get to saving us all. Any attempt to mock or criticize their Messiah is met with vengeful scorn (much like Republicans did with the Bush regime, which these Liberals obviously don’t realize or choose not to realize). The other groups are the disenchanted. Mostly young people, these are the ones who voted for the first time in 2008, only to now find themselves underwhelmed and dissatisfied with the political process. It is this group that were the primary target in the great souring of American hopes that has taken place during the last year. Because of the ineffectiveness of their candidate to accomplish jack shit, the chances of them continuing to take part in the political process, whether it involves the continued perpetuation of the two-party system or even supporting a third-party candidate, is slim at best.

    What I’ve discovered for myself and what I firmly believe is that there is no need to kill or suppress someone when all you have to essentially do to render them ineffective is corrupt their mind and poison their spirit. The power possessors expect all of us to give up. And you know what, they’re winning. You will never see this paranoid idea of martial law because control is as simple as the evening news.

    A begrudging welcome back, Manco. I can’t understand you lefty bleeding hearts and your lust-ridden infatuation with Sarah Palin. I think Palin represents the disciplinarian mommy that you subconsciously craved as a child to wear your ass out and give you a semblance of direction in life. She is a cognitively-impaired trollup engineered by the political/media psy-op faction to make your goo stick cough up in your drawers. Get a life.
