December 7th, Pearl Harbor. The sleeping giant awakened and with a terrible resolve. America enters World War II. This seems like a good day to look at our current president and consider what he might do if the Japanese (I swear I heard a liberal say that it was the Germans! They reeally need to open a history book sometime and stop reading crap by Mao and Marx.) bombed an American military installation.
First of all, he’d feel pressure from the American public to do something. Whatever else is going on, even liberals tend to get offended and upset when we are attacked on our own soil (as long as they can’t deny that’s what it is, anyway, as they do with Fort Hood). The entire nation, with the exception of two or so radical libs and a handful of crazy conspiracy theorists, wanted the people responsible for 9/11 hunted down and killed. We rallied around President Bush, our people, and our country. So BO would feel pressure to respond in some meaningful way that didn’t entail months of “meetings” and “deliberation.” We’d enter a war. I don’t doubt that. BO goes as the wind blows as much as he can while still holding on to his radical ideology that America rejects (that’s why he has to hide it, right?).
Would he declare it a day that shall live in infamy? Um, not so much. Obviously, he would stutter, stammer, and blather, something bad happened, and we are deeply grieved, but we must accept responsibility for the bombing of our military installation. If it weren’t there, he’d wager, it couldn’t be bombed. We have a short-term goal of using our mighty military to do what the American people want and go after the people who did this, but we also have a median-range goal of eliminating our military entirely, thus not providing any targets for people who would bomb military installations. We, as a nation, he would say, are humbled, and he’d bow (deeply) in the general direction of Japan. And then he’d send some troops to kill them all. Then he’d feel really bad about it.
Contradictory? Nope. That’s BO-think. The war on terror is a civilian matter for criminal courts, that’s why we send our military into Afghanistan (and probably Pakistan, but we’re keeping that on the DL because they’re our allies. You know, sort of, just as much as every other nation on earth. Like the UK and some African nation. Just as equal to us and just as special. Huggs everyone!). Yep, our military is in these foreign countries to stop, disband, and cripple (or whatever BO’s stupid catchphrase is) al Queda . . . because al Queda is a criminal organization.
Don’t you remember how we sent Special Ops after Capone and Billy the Kid? Okay, bad example, all screwed up historically-speaking. But we did send our Special Ops after Whitey Bulger, and when that didn’t work (nothing against our Special Ops, of course, but that Whitey is like Waldo . . . and bin Laden . . . so hard to find), we sent in some drones to float over Boston and spy on him. Oh, wait. Another anachronism, my bad. We didn’t have drones then, so we sent U2 bombers to bomb Bulger out of his Beacon Hill mansion. Oh wait, U2s are spy planes. So we sent in several platoons of marines, some tanks, and dropped napalm on Boston to ferret out that pesky Whitey Bulger. Yep, that’s how we deal with criminals and crime organizations in this country. We call out the troops and declare war (well, sort of declare it, not officially via Congress or anything). And then when the military, trained in war, captures a criminal in the war zone, er, no, not war zone, some place that the military is and is being attacked, bombed, brutalized, and killed, but that’s not war, remember. So when the military, not trained as civilian cops in, say, NYC, captures one of these criminals, they . . . um, read them their rights because they committed a crime. On their own soil. The NYPD often goes to foreign lands and arrests people for breaking American laws in other countries. It’s quite the norm. Didn’t you know that?
And liberals call this thoughtful and deliberative and intellectual. Seriously, they do. It’s an exercise in the ridiculous, and BO is the clown in chief, making crazy, counterintuitive, conflicting, and (did I say crazy?) pronouncements and lying through his teeth to everyone in sight. Libs don’t mind this until they discover they were among the lied to, note the outrage on the left from Michael Moore and CodePink about their “anti-war” candidate upping the stakes in that civilian criminal investigation going on in Afghanistan. They feel all betrayed and cheated. Hmph. Join the club.
