One more Middle East country to go in to and trash the existing government of and then pour billions of tax dollars into while the Muslim Brotherhood gets up to speed there and takes over, so that the Middle East caliphate can be established on the back of the American taxpayer. Just unfortunate for Iran that war with them will serve as a nice counterpoint to the folks that question Presbo’s fitness as president. Have to be timed just right in order to provide the extra kick for November.
When the idea of war with Iraq was being bandied about, they were supposed to be imminently about to re-fire up their weapons of mass destruction campaign that would eventually rain down fire upon us, hence the need for a preemptive strike. Also the justification via which the RINOs and DINOs of Congress justified authorizing attacking Iraq. Instead we found a lonely, corrupted aged dictator, an appreciation of fine wine and aged whiskey, holding on to his military and taking out the occasional rebels while comporting in his sex and torture rooms and trying to avoid giving his disgusting sons too much control lest they knock him off themselves. He mistakenly viewed himself as a useful bastion against the religious zealots in the other countries and thought that he was far too useful to us in that role for us to ever seriously take arms against him. And he was quite right. But we killed him anyway.
And all kinds of good things were supposed to come out of a lightning war, a blitzkrieg attack, in and out where we did not have to be the police and were not going to get quagmire like Vietnam. In our wake we were going to leave a pro-western democracy, favorably deposed towards us that would then serve as lightning rod of inspiration to the rest of the Middle East and from who the seeds of democracy would spread like wildfire to collapse the aged surrounding governments , creating other pro-US democracies of freedom.
Instead we have barely been able to leave while slamming the door in order to prevent the violence from burning our backside as we left. We then dumped a bunch of money and men into Libya to help the UN knock off the country while providing a place for the Muslim Brotherhood caliphate to get a toehold, since they had been run out of or outlawed in every other Middle East country. And similarly in Egypt, after undercutting the dictator we had been financing there, we continue to have to dump billions of dollars a year into that country, subsidizing the military while the Muslim Brotherhood tries to get organized enough to take charge and all the time with the risk that a truly democratically oriented public will wrest control away.
In the meantime, the rebels, both Taliban and Al Qaeda tha we have been supporting in Syria,(yes the same ones) are beginning to make inroads to clear out Bashir. After they have done the dirty work, we will be expecting them to install the Muslim Brotherhood there as well.
One more puppet government towards a massive new Middle East superpower for us to have to struggle against. In the big picture, of course, that will be a good thing, because we grow soft and jaded with our politicians here in the US without a serious external threat. In the meantime, the politicians hold out the pretty picture of each additional potential, pro-US democracy that will serve as a rallying point and promote peace.
I’m still waiting for my flying car.
