The primary strategic blunder of BushCo and their
Neo-Con henchmen in dealing with the threat of terrorism
was in relying on the archaic and obsolete paradigms
of the past which were mainly based on our military supremacy.
This blunder is even more unforgivable in the
post Viet-Nam era when that lesson should have, at least, been the one
dividends we got from the loss of 58,000 military
personnel for naught.
...with you so far...
We are doomed to failure as long as Neo-Con Maniacs
and Incompetents continue to pursue their failed
pipe dream fantasies in Mess-O-Potamia. We have
to spend $10 million dollars countering asymmetric threats
that only cost our adversaries a few thousand,
if that. A ten year old could easily figure it out.
I fancy myself as a poker player, and betting
$10M to fight $10,000 is a bad bet.
Al Qaeda's mission is simple and elegant: Bankrupt
us and bleed our morale dry. And Bush-Cheney
have been the main proponents, enablers and dupes
of those consequences. This is easily observable
by tallying the mileage Al Qaeda has gotten from
911. How much did that mission cost them?
Look what it's cost us. And it could get a whole
Again, that looks like solid thinking, playing
the odds, doing the math.
The solution to the phenomena of modern terror
warfare with the Muslim World can only be
political in nature. A good first step
would be to reign in Israel. Once that happens, hostilities
and grievances festering for over 50 years can
begin, at long last, to be resolved and healed as
the victims of Zionist Apartheid are justly
compensated and restored to their ancestral homelands.
This will ameliorate an essential source
of resentment and hatred which serves as the casus belli
for Bin Laden's Islamic Jihad.
Uh-Oh, I should've seen this coming.
How many years in this business does my brain
need before I can see it coming?
Dude, I like a fight as much as anybody, but you're
stuck in a fight you can't win.
You gotta smoke 200M Arabs to have a chance to
win, and what kind of victory is that?
Take it from Ol' Bart - screw that sand.
Move to Oklahoma and forget 4,000 years of revenge.
That begs the obvious question: Knowing what we
do about Racist Zionist Supremacists
and their crazed cadre of fanatical Evangelical
Fundies in the US, what chance is there
of reason, reality and justice ever seeping into
the equation? Right...
So, can I interest anybody in some nice, remote
property in Argentina?
Dave, you had me at "crazed cadre," but as someone who refuses to buy
the fairy tales
of some Invisible Cloud Being's "sacred sand," all I can see is both
sides are religiously insane.
Neither side wants peace - they'd rather win.
God wants them to fight and die, so they will.
