ANGELINA JOLIE CRIES OUT FOR ISLAMIC STATE TO BE STOPPED

Angelina JolieAngelina Jolie, actress and Special U.N. Envoy, has joined other celebrities in calling out for more effective action to stop the “rapey” Islamic State that was spawned by Barack Obama’s premature withdrawal from Iraq. I will invoke my Celebrity Test for this situation: 

I’m not sure where she and all the people agreeing with her on social media were when we were actually STILL THERE – oh, wait, I know! They were insisting we were only there for the oil and that we were racists and imperialists and should withdraw. People who pointed out that if Obama withdrew prematurely it would only strengthen the worst elements of Islamic terrorism in the region were labeled “warmongers.”

Well, okay Angelina, let’s think about this:  

* Say we go in, even with the U.N.’s backing like we did in 2003, how long before the exact same hypocrites around the world who want us to go in and “do something about” ISIS lose interest in the conflict and start bashing us for doing so?

* The conflict alone would take YEARS, followed by a military commitment of DECADES or else groups similar to ISIS would simply take over AGAIN.

* As we saw LAST TIME AROUND, once the novelty of the war wears off with people like Angelina Jolie and other entertainers they will start claiming we are just there “for the oil”. They’ll do their usual round of songs, movies, etc demanding an immediate withdrawal. We’ll be told once again that people around the world consider the U.S. “the greatest threat to peace” and critics will say it’s the 83rd time the U.S. has taken such action since World War Two. (They love to ignore the fact that the international community often whiningly ASKS us to go into these countries.)

* AND once ISIS is “wiped out” and we’re working with other groups in the region to establish a stable post-ISIS government those same pious hypocrites will be excoriating us as “invaders” and “occupiers”. Iraqis who work with us to establish that stable government will be labeled a “puppet regime” and will get slaughtered when the inevitable, make-believe “anti-war” groups get their way and force ANOTHER premature withdrawal.  

SO MAKE UP YOUR MINDS, SHALLOW PEOPLE OF THE WORLD. IF YOU WANT US TO GO IN DO YOU HAVE THE MATURITY AND COMMITMENT TO STICK WITH IT WHEN:

* Your favorite singer or actor or whatever is out in public denouncing the war as “blood for oil” or “a war of aggression” or “an imperial, racist war” or “cowboy diplomacy” Continue reading

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL: WORLD RESPONSE TO THE ISLAMIC STATE “SHAMEFUL AND INEFFECTIVE”

Islam clingingAmnesty International has labeled the world’s response to the Islamic State “shameful and ineffective.” I’ve always been blunt about my opinion regarding the need to openly oppose Islam’s reactionary forces but this hypocrisy from Amnesty International is hilarious.

If the world had been capable of a mature, long-term view when the U.S. and other nations were STILL IN IRAQ in large enough numbers then they would not have been pressuring us to leave prematurely, which is what enabled the rise of ISIS and will enable the rise of ANOTHER such force if “the international community” once again does its usual half-assed job of dealing with a situation like this. Premature withdrawals do more damage than not going in in the first place, as we’ve seen with Obama’s insane haste to flee Iraq.

Obama  work here is doneLet’s be honest here – no matter how many nations are involved in the anti-Islamic State effort it will be treated like an “imperialist U.S. invasion” the minute the world – with its short attention span – wearies of the conflict. The presence of all the other nations with us will once again be smugly dismissed as “a coalition of the bought, the bribed and the bullied” like in the most recent incursion into Iraq. No matter HOW determined the international community was to send troops in we’ll be told it was a war based on lies from that eeeevillll America.

What Amnesty International is REALLY saying is: “Hey, Western Democracies – DO SOMETHING, you callous bastards!” But we all know that right after we do “Do something” the cries in the Middle East will change to “Get out of our countries you racist imperialists! You just want to exploit us and steal our oil! Withdraw IMMEDIATELY so we can throw away the accomplishments and sacrifices of your dead soldiers by allowing another group just like ISIS to take over.”  

ARE THE PEOPLE AT AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL AND ELSEWHERE CAPABLE OF UNDERSTANDING THAT: Continue reading

RAP SINGER FLAVOR FLAV THINKS THAT WE SHOULD GO IN AND “WIPE OUT” ISIS

IslamofascismFlavor Flav actually said this. I’m not sure where he and all the people agreeing with him on social media were when we were actually STILL THERE – oh, wait, I know! They were insisting we were only there for the oil and that we were racists and imperialists and should withdraw. People who pointed out that if Obama withdrew prematurely it would only strengthen the worst elements of Islamic terrorism in the region were labeled “warmongers.”

Well, okay “Flavor Flav” (lmao), let’s think about this:  

* Say we go in, even with the U.N.’s backing like we did in 2003, how long before the exact same hypocrites around the world who want us to go in and “wipe out” ISIS lose interest in the conflict and start bashing us for doing so?

* The conflict alone would take YEARS, followed by a military commitment of DECADES or else groups similar to ISIS would simply take over AGAIN.

* As we saw LAST TIME AROUND, once the novelty of the war wears off with people like Flavor Flav and other entertainers they will start claiming we are just there “for the oil”. They’ll do their usual round of songs, movies, etc demanding an immediate withdrawal. We’ll be told once again that people around the world consider the U.S. “the greatest threat to peace.”

SO MAKE UP YOUR MINDS, SHALLOW PEOPLE OF THE WORLD. IF YOU WANT US TO GO IN DO YOU HAVE THE MATURITY AND COMMITMENT TO STICK WITH IT WHEN:

* Your favorite singer or actor or whatever is out in public denouncing the war as “blood for oil” or “a war of aggression” or “an imperial, racist war” or “cowboy diplomacy”

* We go through a change of administration while the war drags on and on and it’s possibly a Republican crook in the Oval Office instead of a Democratic crook

* Inevitably some anti-ISIS troops do something untoward and even though the perpetrators are being punished the whiny Left in the Western World wants to cripple the entire war effort because of it and is saying “WE’RE the real terrorists”   

Every war is the Vietnam War!

Every war is the Vietnam War!

* The ever-repulsive 1960’s generation of American Liberals relentlessly try to exploit various aspects of ALL OF THE ABOVE ITEMS in their usual effort to relive their Vietnam War-protesting youth    

* Some piece of garbage like Michael Moore makes a seriously dishonest film propogandizing for ISIS?
