It Is Called Murder

I suppose I should rant about the health care system, but I have done enough of that and no one listened to me. Now, all those in favor of the ACA have gotten exactly what they deserve, nothing.

My real topic today, is the movie “Captain Phillips.” I read about this incident in 2009. For the first time in over two hundred years pirates hi-jack an US ship. The movie sticks to the facts as I remember, and the acting is incredible. Tom Hanks plays Captain Phillips, and a bunch of Somalian’s living in the US played the pirates. None of the Somalis had any prior acting experience. All I can say is that either they picked up acting from Tom Hanks very quickly, or Hollywood filmed genuine pirates during a hi-jack. The Somalis did a fabulous job of convincing me that they were pirates.

I won’t talk a lot about the film except to explain that the US Navy came to the rescue.  A battleship, an aircraft carrier and a another smaller vessel between them. Navy Seals flew in from another part of the world parachuted into the Indian Ocean near the ships and did their job.

Coming out of the movie, I met my buddy Al standing near the exit. He beat me to the john at the end and waited for me. As I walked toward him I said, “I can’t believe it, three Navy ships, helicopters, and Seals from somewhere to rescue a single American yet we couldn’t offer a single resource to the Ambassador in Benghazi. He smiled and said. “the same thing kept going through my mind for the entire movie.

At dinner Al and I continued to analyze the differences between Somalian piracy and the Benghazi Embassy attack. We concluded that the prime difference was the 2012 election. Obama ran around the country bragging about Al Qaeda on the run and how he killed bin Laden and that terrorism is declining. Had he acknowledged Benghazi as a real threat, he would have blown all his campaign rhetoric and looked like a complete dummy. We all know that wasn’t going to happen. Incumbent presidents do very strange things to get re-elected. In this case Obama killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Information Officer, and Seals Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods in the embassy in Benghazi, Libya. His right hand Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is also complicit.

My lifetime spans thirteen presidents, and never have I heard any rumor, innuendo, or a smattering of gossip about any of them committing murder to win an election until number thirteen.

Benghazi was within an hour of the nearest military team ready to deal with a terrorist attack. Three men died while defending the Ambassador. There are reports that the three took out sixty or more of the two-hundred or more attackers with the limited resources they had. All it would have taken was another seven Seals to squash the attack. Had there been some air support, each attacker would be happily engaged with his seventy virgins.

What ever Obama and his spin-masters tell you about the Benghazi attack is a huge stretch of the truth (another way to express that is that they are telling you a lie). Obama allowed his embassy team to die because he chose to go to bed, and to leave them hanging. I call it murder, and every one who voted for this guy is an accomplice to murder as well.

Coming Out Smelling Like a Rose

Last night I plunked my self down in front of the big screen LED HDTV to watch the President weasel out of his disaster called Syria, or the Red Line, or aiding and abetting Al Qaeda. The Samsung brought Obama right into my living room. When he walked down that hallway to his teleprompters the definition on my screen was so real, I thought he was coming into the room with me. His opening remarks were not very inspiring and I had heard most of the arguments about how he knows that Syria lobbed gas bombs into a rebel held neighborhood. I was wanting to hear him read something good and important.

It was kind of surreal when the next image appeared, it was a commentator analyzing every syllable of every word Obama uttered. What happened to his speech? I, uh, guess I have to confess, his magical oratorical reading had the same effect on me that gas warfare had on Assad’s citizens. Except, I am lucky, I woke up again, a bunch of his people didn’t.

Now, I am content with watching news-snippets of what he did read, and I am glad I fell asleep. The nap was more beneficial than the solace he might have offered me with his plans to go no where.

It Is Not His Red Line

The debate about what to do with Syria is fascinating. There are so many scenarios to play out and to plan for, but the one that will happen is most likely the one never planned. In my mind this is simple. The President drew a red line and boldly declared that Syria must not cross it or face the consequences. Today, I heard Obama back track and say it was not him who drew the red line, but the world. He referenced the Geneva Convention after WWII when world leaders outlawed gas warfare. Obama is correct, the Geneva Convention prohibits gas warfare, but he is also wrong. He spoke the words, and drew a fresh red line for Syria. Now he is afraid to act.

 

I said it was simple, and it is. The “shot across the bow” is a hand slap. Our strike must make believers out of Syria, Iran, Iraq, Russia, and Pakistan that we mean business when you violate the no gas warfare rule. We must send a signal significant enough to scare the living bejesus out of the entire world. Rather than a slap on the hand, a ferocious kick in the ass is in order. A kick that is fierce enough to make the world think hard and long before they try any more gas attacks.

 

The problem I see with this approach is that it relies on sound intelligence that the Syrian Government is really the perpetrator of the gas attack. Our Secretary of State is proclaiming that our intelligence is showing us that the attack is directly attributable the Syrian government. I for one, don’t really put much faith in our intelligence since they have blown so many things, like Benghazi for one. There are also several factions rebelling against Syria, that anyone of them could have pulled the attack off. There are rumors that the CIA, Israel, and Al Qaeda all did it. So, who did do it? I cannot believe a leader of a country will perpetrate such an atrocity on his own people. It would be like believing that Obama gasses New York because it is to his advantage. I’m not buying into it. As much as I dislike Obama, I can’t believe he can commit such an atrocity.

 

Let him who is free of sin cast the first stone.

 

 

 

Benghazi Cock-a-ma-me

 

Imam Obama

Benghazigate is exploding into a major nightmare and embarrassment for America. Why in the world would the Commander-in-Chief tell us a lie? Why did he feed us that cock-a-ma-me story about the uprising in Libya being a reaction to a video about Allah? When I listened to Hillary’s proclamation on live TV about the attack on Benghazi I smelled a rat. She made a forced dramatic speech about how this vile video claimed our Ambassador. The story line persisted and went on for days. Obama never veered off course from the phony story. Even as more information leaked out to confirm that our government knew about the terrorist nature of the attack within an hour after it began he persisted in spreading the lie. He even knew it was Al Qaeda attacking.

The latest news is that Ambassador Stevens orchestrated a secret gun running deal between the USA and Syrian rebels (Another Fast and Furious?).  What is that all about? Open and transparent like a lead box is what I call this scenario. Another factoid that I can’t resolve is why in the world would Obama allow a fellow gay to work in a radical muslim world. Muslims hate gays. Most likely that is why the terrorists sodomized Ambassador Chris Stevens before killing him.

Obama wears a gold ring on his left hand. Everyone believes it is a wedding ring. It may be, or it may not be. He has worn the ring on that same finger since his college days. Reportedly the ring’s Arabic engraving interprets into “no God but Allah.”  That makes me wonder about the motives of this President. “In “Audacity of Hope” he writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.” The Benghazigate situation doesn’t get any uglier.

The cartoon displays one opinion of his motive for not sending help to Benghazi. There is an US airbase in Italy just twenty minutes away from Benghazi. Instead Obama allowed a seven hour firefight between a terrorist mob to go on against two Navy Seals. But Muslims don’t shoot their fellow faithful practicing Muslims do they?

All it would have taken was one US helicopter gunship to blow these heavenly virgin seeking bastards away. Why Mr. President, why?

Illinois, the New Home of Al Qaeda?

The latest ploy by Obama is to house the GITMO terrorists in  Illinois. He proposes the Federal Government  buy a brand new prison in Thomson, Illinois and to convert it into a super-max prison. He will then bring jobs to Illinois by staffing the prison to care for the GITMO guys. A while back I wrote a piece titled “A Gitmo Proposal” which gave my proposal for housing the same guys in  Illinois. My proposal was more interesting than Obama’s. I wanted to give President BO some extra income by housing the terrorists in his vacant house in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago.

I have a quandary about the prison in Illinois. It is a relatively new facility in Thomson, Illinois. It currently houses about one hundred and eighty inmates. It has capacity for eighteen hundred. How is it that it is only ten percent utilized? I hear the state can’t afford to staff it. Didn’t they think about staffing when they built the damn place?  It is my guess that this prison was built with ear marks put on some obscure bill by our Senator Dickie Durbin.

Illinois has a history of projects that are under utilized. There is a very large air port in southern Illinois near Saint Louis that doesn’t have any air traffic. The old “Field of Dreams” principle of “build it they will come” never materialized but we have a beauty of an air port in an area that  no one will ever visit or hear about in the next thousand years. Now we have a prison in the same category. At least this time Dickie is being creative, and is trying to double dip for good old Illinois.
