Shrillary says she tried to convince Obama to intervene early in the Syrian Civil War, back when she thinks they might have influenced the makeup of the opposition.

First of all, I’m not even convinced that’s how things went down. But maybe my memory isn’t that good, or maybe there were private discussions.

But secondly, if that is how it happened, then I think I agree with Obama. At least more than I do Hillary. I think all the aid we might have given to the Syrian opposition would have ended up in the hands of ISIL. Heck, a lot of the military assets we gave Iraq -an actual sovereign nation at the time- ended up in in ISIL’s arsenal.

Not sure Hillary wants to make her major break with the administration on the idea that she wanted to help the Syrian rebels.  Really grasping at straws there, Hil.

Update Below With More Operation Names!!!!!!!!

People are making a big deal about the current non-kinetic actions against ISIS not having a name.

I’ll nominate a name, Operation Look As If I’m Doing Something.

They’ve bombed one artillery piece so far

Two U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet strike fighters operating from the carrier USS George HW Bush (CVN-77) have struck an artillery piece operated by Iraq and Syria Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) terrorists near Irbil in northern Iraq.

Wow! An artillery piece!!!!!!! That’ll show the murderous terrorists busily committing more genocidal actions than the murderous genocidists in Sudan!!!!!!!

Israel, so far as I know, hasn’t named their war, but then, they’re actually doing something.

Just look at the pictures of Gaza, they’re blowing the shit out of all terrorist positions and making it as painful as possible for all in Terrorstan.

They did the same thing in southern Lebanon a few years ago and look how that worked out. Hezbollah has not really bothered Israel too much lately.

What makes me laugh is Hamas demanding that Israel stop the ‘blockade’ as a condition. You know, so they can get more missiles and more concrete to build more terror tunnels.

 

 

I don’t know what Putin’s named his poking Obama with a stick operation, I’d bet it’s Operation Sudetenland. He’s just testing to see what we’ll do and what the EUnuchs will do.

One thing, a week or so ago I noticed that the Kyiv Post had a story about how Russia was pondering blocking air routes over Russia, I didn’t post it because I figured it was just them trying to get the west worked up. Now, I see that Russia is making such a plan public.

Which makes this story kind of scary.

Ukraine’s security chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said that Kremlin-backed separatists on July 17 intended to shoot down a Russian passenger plane to give Moscow a pretext for conventionally invading Ukraine.

 

I figure he’s named that Operation I Want A War II

Back when Tsar Putin I wanted to Look Strong, in the late 90s,  a bunch of Moscow apartment buildings were blown up and blamed on Chechnya. This was before they went full Jihadi, they denied they were doing it.

So a resident noticed that someone was doing something suspicious in his building and called the cops. They caught some KGB.. FSB Guys planting a bomb (Ryazan incident), and they said, “It was a test and you passed!!!”, methinks a failing grade would have been a blown up apartment building.

So when someone says Tsar Putin I is considering killing Russians to foment a war, well, I’d take that seriously.

I don’t speak Mandarin, but China fucking with Japan, the Philippines and Vietnam in the South China Sea is probably named, “We Want That Oil-Filled Place“.

I’d hope the Japanese are naming their operation in response, ” Operation Go Fuck Yourselves

Japanese fighter jets shadowed Chinese aircraft patrolling over disputed waters, China’s Ministry of Defense said on Thursday,

 

Although Operation Nanking would be funnier and endier and therefore, apropos.  It might also remind China they don’t want to get the Japanese worked up again.

The world is realizing that America is not going to do shit anywhere except against Americans so they’re all on their own.

I do figure that Obama has a name for the operation of “losing’ all the emails showing their perfidy, It’s “Operation What Are You Gonna Do? Impeach Me?

The revelation that Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administrator Marilynn Tavenner did not retain her e-mails means that more than 20 witness in the Obama administration to lose or delete e-mails without notifying Congress, according to the top House investigator.

 

It seems obvious to me.

 

Important, Nother Operation Name Update!!!!!!

As I said above, others are noticing they’re on their own.

like Israel and Egypt and KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia V), against revisionist actors, like Iran and its assets. It’s in this context that we should read the current situation. Traditional American allies are effectively teaming up against the Obama administration.

 

I know it’s not on purpose, but he managed to bring the backers of al Quaeda together with Israel.

Against us.

That’s funny and endy.

To The Max!!!!

Geraldo was on Fox earlier today and I tried to watch, but when he started off by attacking Israel, I couldn’t watch anymore.

Allah linked this vid and I tried to watch it, but his smug, superior, ignorant stupidity is just a deal-breaker for me.

YMMV

 

I will illustrate why Geraldo is an idiot though, even at the risk of having him threaten me,

Hams Missile Defense

Palestinian Missile Defense

Geez, I could almost literally just repost something from 2 years ago and nobody would notice it.

Not even if this was the type of blog that people read and click the links.

Let’s start with the peacefully murderous members of the Religion of Peace where it appears that something we haven’t seen in a long time is happening, region-wide war.

First, a drudgetaposition that is very illustrative of the whole, Peace Process farce.

Israel arrests the murderers of a Palestinian teen.

Meet The Proud Mother Of Palestinian Man Accused In Death Of Israeli Teens

 

Slight difference, you have to love.…hate how the Wash Post characterizes the Israelis utterly expected actions in relation to murderers.

The arrests shocked those on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian divide — Palestinians because many had assumed Israel would never act against its own

 

Assholes. The only people that “shocked” are assholes who hate Israel have a caricature of them that no amount of reality can change.

 

As Obama and the rest of the compassionate set lambast Israel for breaking the ceasefire, we have

Hamas militants in Gaza fired “dozens” of rockets into southern Israel late Monday,

Yeah, that’s what they do. They’re murderous thugocrats who use a religion to justify their thuggery.

 

Speaking of people ‘shocked’ by reality, something we here at DPUD have known about for over  year.

Despite denials by Hamas, there is growing evidence that the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria [ISIS] — also known as “The Islamic State” — has begun operating in the Gaza Strip.

Yeah, that’s been happening for a long time.

So how is America viewed in this most dangerous of times?

Bahrain’s Foreign Ministry said Monday that US Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, Tom Malinowski, is “unwelcome” in the Sunni-ruled kingdom and should “leave immediately.”

We’ve become the Rodney Dangerfield of the world, we get no respect. (Obama’s made sure we deserve none)

In relation to the murderous Religion Of Peacers kidnapping girls in Nigeria, we do have Top Men and Women on the Job!!!!!

twit

 

Okay, I’m officially embarrassed by my nation’s gov’t.

 

In other regional war news, Ukraine!

Another drudgetaposition.

Ukraine

The Ukrainian army is preparing to dislodge Kremlin-backed separatists from Donetsk and Luhansk,

Russia.

Russia may begin a “peacekeeping” operation in Ukraine within the next two days, according to comments made on July 3

 

Yeah, I’m sure that’ll end well. If something happens there, in the middle east or the South China Sea, Obama will take a weak to make a ‘decision” and his ‘decision’ will be to tell everybody, killers and killees, to step back.

 

That’s enough They’re All Gonna Die, let’s do some WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!! stuff that, surprisingly, isn’t global worming caused.

This happened in America, at the Murrieta deal. where we had some mostly-peaceful counter-protestors

peaceful

That’s in America. Seriously.

And we know the gov’t has our backs.

Davis says he reported the destruction or losing of applications (by the VA V) to White House deputy chief of staff, Rob Nabors, and gave him a copy of his whistleblower complaint. He says the complaint was then leaked to the very same people about whom he was complaining.

 

You know, for a place to store their knives.

Speaking of storing knives in our backs, I give you the establishment pricks in the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party in Mississippi.

This site doesn’t have permalinks to each story, but this is the top story today. With pics and links to the FEC stuff.

Cochran campaign staffer Amanda Shook was illegally reimbursed for over $40,000 cash in walking around money during the Republican primary, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. The payments are described as “Reimbursed Expenses – Campaign Walkers.”

 

$40K buys a lot of votes to beat that stupid idjits from their own, putative, party.

But wait, there’s still more!

A conservative media consultant is accusing the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) of laundering money through a political consulting firm to a shadowy SuperPAC that ran racist negative ads attacking the Tea Party and Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi runoff election.

Lest you have forgotten, this flyer.

gop win!

Yeah, it’s unproven so far, but we know that’s only because the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party has been watching the Chicag0-Machine assholes running our country and learning how to hide their perfidy.

 

Eh, that’s enough for now, except for this illustration on how we can’t have nice things because of the coalition of humorless leftists and the people who care what they screech.

“Air NZ finds it appropriate to reinvent the in-flight safety video with a celebration of Sports Illustrated 50th anniversary. A safety video is to alert passengers on what to do in an emergency; it should not be an excuse to objectify the sexualized female body,”

The ad in question.

 

Assholes, don’t they want us to be safe?

 

 

 

I started out preferring that people use the term ISIS rather than ISIL. I mean, it rolls off the tongue a lot easier, and it looks like they could be a James Bond villain, or maybe GI-Joe or something.  But I’ve changed my mind.

The final “S” in ISIS hides the extent of ISIL’s ambition.  The “L” stands for the “Levant”, which Wikipedia tells me consists of “Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey (the former Aleppo Vilayet).”

That’s a lot different from just “Iraq and Syria”. If it were just that, we could maybe let them fight it out with the Iraqi and Syrian governments and let the chips fall where they may… and perhaps drop a few bombs afterwards.

The Levant is a much bigger deal, and doesn’t as easily lead to the conclusion that we can ignore them for a while and see what happens.

Riffing off of Veeshir’s post,

So the only way we “shouldn’t have gone into Iraq or Afghanistan”  is if we have decided we’re going to be wimpy loser who hide under our beds when the bad men come out.

I think in the future we will need to weigh the difficulty and likely duration of any military task against the perseverance of the American voting public. Which is to say that we probably won’t be doing things that maybe we should, just because political reality will set in and we’ll bail out.

In a similar vein, I’d like to quote myself on what I termed the “inverse sunk cost fallacy” back in 2007:

Democrats might accuse the Bushies of committing the “sunk cost” fallacy with respect to the Iraq war, particularly not wanting lives already lost to have been lost “in vain”. However, Democrats seem to be committing the opposite fallacy. Dem Presidential candidates are falling over each other trying to get out of Iraq – “it’s not worth another life.”

Oh really? Not one more life? What if it was just one more life to make it all work out, then would it be worth it? What if it was 100, or 500? The Democrats seem to be saying that leaving behind a reasonably stable Iraq just isn’t worth anything at all, which it clearly is. Has it been worth 3000+ KIA’s? I suppose that’s a matter of perspective. Is it worth something? Absolutely.

Clearly Obama did not value what was left him.  He put no effort into a SOFA.  He put no effort into Sunni-Shia political reconciliation.  He allowed Maliki’s government to so abuse the Sunnis that many are running into the arms of the guys who Al Qaeda thought were a bit over-the-top.

Heckuva job, Barry.

Now watch this drive

First, the odd.

This is very odd. I thought all of America was a Constitution Zone, I didn’t realize we had Constitution-free zones.

District Judge Edward Korman, a US federal judge, has reaffirmed an Obama administration policy granting officials the authority to search Americans’ laptops, citing a controversial premise that makes citizens within 100 miles of the border eligible for a police check.

So there’s a 100 mile area along the border where the Constitution does not apply.

How the fuck does a federal judge who is supposed to decide on the Constitutionality of stuff say that the Constitution does not apply in America?

I know it’s not new, but it pisses me off every fucking time. If more Americans knew about it (Minitrue isn’t covering it until we have a GOP pres) I think there’d be some problems. But then, I’m an eternal optimist.

This is very odd, I’m praising sports writers.

Another year, another Good On Ya Baseball Hall of Fame voters.

 

The cheating sacks of shit like Sosa, McGwire, Bonds and the rest of the steroid crew did not make the cut.

I do think McGriff should make it, the crime dog was a good player, but the steroid freaks should not.

 

This is only odd for those who don’t pay attention. They’re talking about how there are good and bad jihadis in Syria.

That idea, of course, is why the middle east sucks so badly. Jordan thinks all jihadis suck so they don’t have the problems Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and the rest have.

A partial list of jihadis in Syria.

Barish listed the participants as the following: “the Syrian Revolutionaries Front, including the Farouq Brigade, the Union of the Syrian Clans, 11 other factions, and defected fighters from other brigades; the Islamic Front, with the Ahrar al-Sham in Raqqa, Maskana, and Manbaj, Souqour al-Sham, and al-Tawhid, which has a significant presence in Aleppo; the Jihadis’ Army; and the Nour al-Din Zinki Brigade.”

…large groups of the Islamic Front, Ahrar al-Sham, Jabhat al-Nusra, and some FSA brigades are participating in Raqqa battles against ISIS.

It’s a dogs’ breakfast of jihadi assholes all fighting like scorpions in a bottle.

I will say, that ISIS is an even funnier acronym than the MILFs in the Philippines.

First, Isis is a pagan god. I thought jihadis kill people who worship pagan gods.

Second, it’s the name of Archer’s spy group.  I look forward to KAOS (Kill All Onbelievers Squad)  popping up next.

Well, that’s the odd. Let’s get to the sod.  In honor of CO, some grass below the fold. (more…)
