Thinking Things Through

Posted: January 10, 2017 by veeshir in Obama's Fault, We're boned

One of the worst things about lefties is how they only think of actions now, not consequences going forward.

So back when Bush was POTUS, we had the 18 month Rush To WarTM before we went to war in Iraq. We didn’t need to be convinced to go to war in Afghanistan.

Obama just went to war whenever he felt like it. We’re fighting in 7 countries right now.

He sent ground troops back to Iraq. How is that legal? He declared victory and removed out troops, shouldn’t Congress get involved in that decision? Shouldn’t America have been involved in that decision?

Now, we have ground troops fighting in Syria. Solely on Obama’s say-so. We have casualties in both countries.

Solely because Obama said so.

 

And what  can we expect in the future? As Trump tries to make some sense out of the wars Obama started, our fine betters in Minitrue will be attacking Trump for having troops there.

I don’t feel like looking hard for articles, but here’s one from Foreign Policy mag worried that Trump will send troops to Syria.

Too. Fucking. Late.

We’re in ground wars in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq, possibly in Libya, or soon will be in Libya because of the chaos from the Obama/Hillary rampage through the area. What he started in Somalia and Yemen could also suck us in.

All because our fine lefty betters, with the enthusiastic support of their Minitrue wing, refused to accept that anything Obama did could not be perfect so now we don’t have any declaration of anything but we’re in a bunch of wars.

The worst part? I’m gonna have to defend Trump. Hopefully he lets Mattis run free so I’m defending an ass-kicking.

 

Not related, this just cracked me up.

Woman caught trying to smuggle her man out of prison in a suitcase.

I picture her walking in easily pulling the empty suitcase and going out trying to drag it with the guards laughing their asses off.

I wonder if they let her get almost to the door out before busting her, just for giggles.

    See? Another example of “Obama started it”! 😛

      That excuse is usually pretty lame, but he’s spread chaos and dark night around the world.

        Well, yeah. Have I whipped out my favorite summation of Obama’s Middle East strategy here? I can’t remember. Anyway, the point of the exercise is to ruthlessly remind people that The Narrative is #FakeNews and #FakeNews got us Trump. So when I hear someone parroting Minitru’s caterwauling about $problem, pointing to $instance where Obama set a precedent is win/win for me. If I can get some agreement and reasonable talk, great. Welcome to the party, pal. If they wanna double down and be all tribal about it, I can just say, “do you want more Trump? Because this is how you get more Trump.”

    That’s perfect.

      Forgot that one.
      Someone better tell Putin to bring extra grizzlies if he’s planning on heading west. Mattis is a mite peckish. It’s been months since he killed something.
