War update -- still going!

Even as we're pulling out of one debacle, we're ratcheting up in another.

This latest Afghanistan operation is getting as much press as Michael Jackson's death. It makes me think that if the Normandy invasion were happening tomorrow, our guys would get blown out of the water before they even landed because the Nazis would've heard all about the coming invasion on NPR.

But the Nazis were high-tech, whereas these jihadists are merely pastoral opium farmers....WITH THE ABILITY TO DESTROY THE PLANET! BLEAAAAAARRRRRRGGGHHHHHHHHH!

I want out of all those countries. And I want Dennis Kucinich to be my President.

Fire-Bases, anyone?

We're already burning the villages to save 'em. That's what our drones are supposed to do, innit?

One of the reasons our economy is in the tank right now is because of this warmongering our politicians can't seem to get enough of. Of course, THEY are not the ones over there getting shot at or dying either--those pieces of shit. Easy enough for them to say our guys and gals have got to go over there and put their lives on the line. I think EVERY politician ought to put on a uniform and serve this country--and not as officers either. Let them put their own lives on the line for once. Urgh! Now I'm all pissed off...

Randal--calm down!

Dr. Monkey--ditto x 2.

Woody--welcome! Indeed.

Lib--I agree. It's chickenhawks like Rummy and Cheney who think themselves too good or too rich or too white or too smart to serve who got us into this mess. Assholes would feel differently if they were on the front lines for even a day.

O Great Dreamer:

When will the Lord Obama end this already interminably long Recession? Is Obama Almighty delaying to show the Great Evil that Bush has wroght upon this country by the length of delay of dispensing with this Great National Catastrophe?

Each Month, the Unemployment Rate increases at least a tenth of a percent. Obama has vowed that if Legislation is not passed to propitiate HIM, that Unemployment will rise to above 9%. Unemployment is now above 9.2%. Is the Lord Obama testing the Faith of HIS subjects?

Why doesn't the Lord Obama make haste to deliver us? Is HE trying to also send Bush and the Evil Republicans live to the Infernal Regions as part of HIS Elaborate Miracle? Does the performing of this Miracle get in the way of HIS timetable, possibly disruption of the timing of the Lord Obama's Live Ascencion to Heaven?

Pray! Make Haste, Lord Obama, to deliver us!
