Fuck it. I’m getting serious here. Political too.
One thing my sensei always said:
“Only a fool picks and chooses his own enemies“.
You see, if you invade my land, looking to destroy my home, and hurt my family…
I’m willing to die to make sure I’m the last thing some of you will ever see.
If you’re languishing in an Iraqi prison, your testicles being electrocuted, your wife/mother/sister being raped, and your children being tortured in front of you; just before your eyes are gouged out…
I could really care less.
Hey, I’m just being honest here. I’m fucked up like that.
Make no mistake. I think Saddam Hussein is a vile, disgusting, slimy piece of sadistic shit. A Joe Stalin wannabe… better, yet, a moden-day Vlad the Impaler. The only person I can think of who can possibly be worse than him is his little bouncing baby boy, Uday.
Why anyone would want to volunteer to be a “professional missle catcher” to protect those two is beyond me.
In a region where America is damned if we do/damned if we don’t.
I say we don’t. We should have walked away when we had the chance.
We already taught that area a lesson with Afghanistan, remember?
You fuck with us, we’re coming over, we’re gonna be all in your face, topple your government, and will give you an ass kicking you’ll feel for generations to come… oh yeah, and we’re gonna blow your hero into smithereens too.
And I’m glad we did it… The Talibastards got what they deserved.
Their women had no fashion sense.
But when we decide it’s time for some country to have a “regime change”, whether the U.N. likes it or not?
I have a problem with that.
They’re not going to thank us for this. Trust me.
Sure there will be photos ops of Iraqui kids hugging American soldiers, and playing hopscotch together. Us sappy Americans will eat it up with a spoon.
But there will be secret meetings in the next town, and Arabs hating us more than ever will plot how to bring a western superpower to its knees for this humiliation by using…. [THREE FUCKING GUESSES]?
I have a problem with my government taking advantage of its traumatized people, issuing constant warnings of an impending “terrorist attack” that never comes everytime it wants to whittle a little bit more of the fourth amendment away and detain arabs without charges or legal rights.
So let me get this straight, Mr. Hawkins.
Because Matt thinks when a government becomes too secretive, and doesn’t answer to it’s people it becomes dangerous… That makes him paranoid?
…but launching a military strike against another country that *MIGHT* do something bad to us one of these days *ISN’T*???
I’m missing the logic here. Explain this to me, ‘cuz I’m a moron.
It’ll never happen here, right? Our Government flipping out and going on a witch hunt? PREPOSTEROUS!
Does the name “Senator Joe McCarthy” ring a bell?
Yeah, once upon a time, we were scared shitless of communists too. They were gonna something bad to us too. Let’s practice air raids in school, report our neighbors to the House of UnAmerican Activities, and round us up some of those icky commies by any means necessary!
Read “The Crucible” sometime. I’ll help you with the big words.
Maybe Ezrael and Arthur Miller can be roommates in the funny farm.
So, who’s the fucking moron, now?
However, all the people rooting for war will be happy to know that I have resigned to the fact that this war is inevitable. There’s no turning back for us at this point. My time won’t be wasted going to protests (it’s too cold out anyway), I’ll support our troops by praying for their safe return. I know a few going, do you?
For those expecting Desert Storm II, where Iraquis will have the good sense to realize that they will be rid of that asshole once and for all, drop their weapons, and clear a path for our ground troops…
Saddam will be playing for keeps this time. Just like a cornered rat. If he has weapons of mass destruction, we will be lobbing them at our troops (read: our sons, daughters, nieces, & nephews). Hopefully he’ll piss Israel off enough from the scud missles that they’ll shoot a nuclear missile back at his ass this time (like they wanted to in ’91).
Which then every Arab in the region (including our good buddies, Pakistan) will annhilate Israel, then decide that enough is enough with the U.S. and British. We’ll have have a nuclear ring toss going on… WORLD WAR THREE, BABY!!!!
Maybe when more body bags get off the plane than breathing soldiers, we’ll finally learn to mind our business. I’m not being un-American. I’m being realistic. We should have learned from Vietnam that we’re not invincible. Oh right… those damn commies again. I’m sick of playing “World’s Policeman”, how about you?
We’ll find out that all his sarin gas & anthrax has already left the country before Blix even arrived… it’s probably on a U-Haul truck on I-95 on its way to New York City or Washington.
This isn’t about terrorism, Al-Qaeda, liberation, or even oil. I suspect it’s a long standing vendetta between the Bush family and Saddam Hussein. And it’s getting “less noble” with each passing day, as they move from no evidence of WMD’s, to the human rights issue, failing to tie him to Al-Qaeda, to whatever the hell reason of the week Bush wants Saddam out of the picture. (And believe me, I don’t want to defend this pig fucker! The world is a better place without him.)
I may be a paranoid, un-American, moron, that should have a rubber room next to Ezrael… but even I have the good sense to be scared shitless right now.
Have a happy war, America. SLEEP TIGHT!
