    Rope-a-Dope Ramadi: Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off 

    Apparently the problem with the Iraqi troops defending Ramadi from ISIL is that they were under the mistaken assumption that they would be staying at the the Ramada… oops… that explains why the beds were so hard… and where’s that chambermaid, anyway–and that gun? Iraq’s commander said that there were bright lights… and loud noises… so they left. Ooohhh, sounds like a bad episode of the Kardashians…

      Love how you incorporate song lyrics. RCR says I am a human jukebox, wonder if I got it from you. Yes, let’s call the whole thing off. btw, what are your leanings in 2016 for president? suppport bi48 MS, for hemp, herb, meds, paper and more. If in MS, register to vote and sign the bi48, just like your voter id card, use the same name and address, more rejected signatures than usable ones, so far.

    Tags: Crusade, Iraq,   

    The Iraq war drags on and on endlessly, no end in sight. 

    They don’t want us there, so why don’t we just leave? Politics. We can’t leave until we’ve created something there in our own image and likeness. All for the love of oil we dust off our ideals and polish our principles. Unfortunately it’s much bigger than Iraq. It’s the new Crusade between Islam and everyone else. They want the world in their image and likeness every bit as much as Bush. There may not be a compromise possible to the Muslim issue. It’s hardball politics. They’ve got oil-derived wealth and intend to use it for political leverage. They feel they have a right to convert moderate Islamic states into religious theocracies with medieval fundamentalist overtones and undercurrents, regardless of who is inconvenienced and aggrieved. The situation reminds me of the American Indian’s encounter with Europeans. There is a just a fundamental clash of goals and values. Only now the stakes are higher, with Soviet-era surplus nuclear weapons unaccounted for. We’ll just have to wean ourselves from oil first, and then let the politics sort itself out. We’ll have to do it sooner or later anyway, so the sooner, the better.
