Isn’t it funny?

Isn’t it funny that if some questionable organization nobody ever heard about makes a video about a warlord in Africa nobody had ever heard about goes viral and then our country all of sudden deploys Special Forces soldiers there to help hunt for him?

Isn’t it funny that when our Secretary of State goes to one of what was our strongest allies to forge a cease-fire he fails miserably?

Isn’t it funny when a liberal Prime Minister from our strongest ally in the world shows more backbone towards a common enemy (then our President) and doesn’t care about mincing words to be P.C.?

Isn’t it funny that our Administration can send three representatives to the funeral of some normal american young man who happened to be killed by a police officer defending himself after committing a crime but not send any to a Two-star General murdered in combat?

Isn’t it funny that we just throw out words when our citizens and innocent journalists are be-headed on video instead of bullets and bombs? Where are the SF teams to hunt these guys down? Where are the strong (and tangible) words from our President?

 

No, NO, none of that is funny and all of that is very, VERY serious.

Thanks a lot 51% of America for putting impudence, not once, but twice into the leadership of this country. Hope you are proud of yourselves.

  1. Sgt. Bouhammer, This is my first time on your site and so I’ll follow you for a while to see whether we have a commonality of views. What I won’t do is come on here solely to argue with you.
    First, for the administration to not send a representative to the funeral of the two star general who was killed in Afghanistan is a slap in the face to all military personnel, serving and retired.
    Second: I’m sure you know that we are in Africa to secure the incredible mineral wealth of that continent.

    I was in Afghanistan during the late seventies when one could still travel freely in that strange and captivating land, which I did, though the majority of my time was spent in Khandahar. I even crossed the Chaman Pass to Quetta once (something I’m sure you never did). Anyway, I read an article in Foreign Affairs magazine about four years ago which has stuck with me. I’ll paraphrase.
    The author laid out an articulate and< I think valid, case for the partition of Afghanistan; the Pashtos keeping the south and the north controlled by the other three main tribes, Uzbek, Hazari, and Turkoman. Considering that the Afghan military (such as it is) and police are almost exclusively from those three tribes, it might work.
    What do you think?

    1. It doesn’t matter if they ever formalize that or not, it has always been that way and always will. It is all about the tribes and is never about the country. The geographical boundaries are just lines on a map and mean nothing to the people there. I watched “Afghans” and “Paks” cross back and forth with no regard to an invisible border.
