Osama Bin Laden video appears recent

September 7, 2007

  Well apparently I was wrong.  This goat humper isn’t dead after all.  He don’t look so good though.  

   His requirements for ending the war in Iraq seem entirely reasonable.  I’m thinking he has been talking to Ron Paul, and decided the guy needed a little Mohammed in his diet.  This lends the lie to Al Qaeda only fighting us because we are there,

There are two solutions to stopping it. One is from our side, and it is to escalate the fighting and killing against you. This is our duty, and our brothers are carrying it out,” bin Laden said.

“The second solution is from your side. I invite you to embrace Islam,” he said.

   Appparently Dr. Paul leaving won’t fix this.  Apparently we all have to convert to Islam Mr. Paul.  So, you first.  Embrace Islam big fella, because it’s the only way this war ends.


Ron Paul’s “wacky” Idea; already in use

August 6, 2007

  Ron Paul recently reintroduced his Letters of Marque and Reprisal legislation that he first presented in 2001.  It may seem a little bit outside of the mainstream, but here is why you should give it a second look:

  This story is interesting to me.  Not because  I am either for or against, but simply because the mans Idea was stolen, changed, and used in a manner that I would think makes him cringe.  Ron Paul had a plan for fighting the war on terror that didn’t include U. S. Troops going to far away places and hunting down terrorists.  It was called the Marque and Reprisal Act of 2001.  He presented it to congress on 11 October 2001.

  Letters of Marque and Reprisal are authorized in the constitution and basically allow a government to authorize others to track down and kill those that are basically beyond the scope of a military application, i.e. terrorists protected by foreign governments.  For a full explanation use this link.

what piqued my interest on this bad boy is that while the letters were never authorized upon Ron Pauls request, they have been being used in a manner of speaking.  We are using private contractors in the war on terror.  Without congressional authorization, and with no letters of marque being issued.

For shame you say?  I know.  I have proof to.  George Bush has railed time and again on the war in Iraq being part of the war on terror.  There are currently estimated to be between 120,000 and 180,000 private contractors in Iraq.  How many of them are armed is not listed, but Private security contractors are generally armed in a combat zone.  These contractors are from a number of countries around the globe, including the U.S.  For lack of a better term they are mercenaries, and in many cases are authorized to perform combat roles.  oh yeah, here’s an article you just must read if this interests you at all..    http://news.yahoo.com/s/csm/20070718/ts_csm/acontractors_1

    That makes them extra-military forces authorized to conduct actions against terrorists forces in Iraq.  Many of their firms receive financing from the U.S. Government.

No letters of marque, but if this is any different than what Ron Paul was asking for then it’s a shade of grey difference that can not be discerned by the naked eye, or the avid mind.  To make it even better, these troops can stay even if we pull out our military.

   Doesn’t it make sense then, that this practice be legitimized and expanded by the congress?


Osama Bin laden is dead

July 30, 2007

    I’ve been looking at pictures for days now, and the only conclusion I can come up with is he is dead.  I know nobody else says so, but it’s the only rational conclusion. If he isn’t dead, then he is in captivity, and that implies a conspiracy theory so convoluted that it defies imagination.

    This of course is an opinion, but not an uneducated one.  Let me make some points.

1.  A live Osama Bin laden is best for all concerned.

  Al Qaeda, and islamic fundamentalism is stronger if the muslim world thinks he is alive.  He is a folk hero to them, and enjoys incredible popularity throughout the region; including those countries who support the U.S. Plus, it is awfully hard to find a dead guy, and boy do we look dumb searching for him.  Shaming America is a big deal to the radical islamic movement.

George Bush would play hell continuing his war on terror without the great satan to hunt.  American’s are already tired of the bloodshed, and loss of human life.  Less than 1/10th of the casualties we experienced in vietnam, and if you put it to a referendum we’d have troops flying home by the weekend.  Had Osama’s corpse been presented 2 years ago the war in Iraq would be long over.

Congressional democrats want him alive, because the disaster that the war on terror has become for the Bush Administration has already given them control of both houses of congress, and barring some miracle (like a freshly thawed body of Osama Bin Laden being put in front of the news cameras) they will enlarge their majorities, and win the White House because of what one long dead terrorist started.

2.  Not one single reputable source has shown conclusive proof that he is alive.

Not one.  The last  conclusive evidence came before the 2004 elections. He mentioned bush and kerry so it is likely he was alive at the time, but since then not one shred of logical evidence proves he is alive. 

3.  He went to Dubai in 2001 for dialysis.

Kidney problems don’t just disappear, and the affects on him physiologically we’re obvious in later videos.  It would be difficult in the extreme to receive anywhere near proper medical care.  Especially while being the worlds foremost fugitive .

Most American intelligence agents have been shifted away from Afghanistan,. and the hunt for Osama has been in name only for several years.  You can say thats because Bush toook his eye off the ball, but it’s just as credible to surmise that somewhere deep in the vaults is a portfolio marked top secret that has a dead photo of Osama in it.

It’s far easier to bilk the American people out of billions of dollars if the news keeps sporting hunt for Osama slogans, and the world believes the man is alive and masterminding further mischief.  It’s not so easy to respond to a couple of very simple questions:

1.  If he is alive, and his followers could be emboldened by his presence, why have none of the photo’s or video’s borne any proof of the date? it would be quite easy to accomplish, but none have been shown?

2.  Why, if he is sick, and needing dialysis just to stay alive; and we really want to catch him..why have we removed those assets from the regions he is thought to be in?  We’ve had years to track him, and not one sighting, not one wierd medical shipment, not one shred of evidence found that he is still alive

This is all conjecture of course, and i’m no expert, but until they prove he is alive he is dead dead dead.  Thats my conspiracy idea for the day.


the hue and cry

July 15, 2007

   Well the sunday of work more or less killed my random thoughts mood so I’ll try to whip that out later.  Right now I’m more thinking about the insanity I keep hearing on the news.  Shall we?

   Ok, Pauliacs, enough is probably enough, and you guys have really blown this one out of proportion.  I agree that he did not say that the government was planning bogus terrorist attacks.  It seems maybe I’m the only non-pauliac saying it, but thats no reason for you folks to blow a valve or something.  Cardiac care is important, and the old blood pressure is going through the moon on you guys .   Why don’t you discuss the rest of that insipidly stupid interview?  Or was that not your take on it?  I am up to my ears with the whole Ron Paul is the only candidate interested in liberty.  Lets look at his record.  He is interested in doing nothing.  Ever.  That’s what his interest is.  His voting record smacks of abject cowardice, and his hiding behind the constitution, a document that is to hard to change to gaurantee liberty for anyone let alone everyone, continues to wither with the populace.  Quit whining because he got misquoted.  Libertarians are notorious for misquoting anyone that doesn’t agree with them, and this year is no exception.

   Maliki said we could leave anytime we wanted, but today one of his aids translated that to “we want you to stay as long as you want and train our troops.”  Nice.  Wonder which cloak and dagger clown the white house sent to Put Maliki in his place?  If anyone thought he wasn’t our trained lap dog, this should change your mind on that.  Our seating an “elected” government in Iraq is maybe the dirtiest thing we have done over there.  They are making no headway, or effort, to reach the benchmarks established by “us” again.  Is Iraq now the 51st state or something?    Bring home the troops…let the humanitarian disaster begin.

   It’s not Iran, it’s Pakistan dummies.  While its possible the pauliacs are right, and George Bush really is dumb enough to enter open conflict with Iran, the good bet from a security stand point is Pakistan…here’s why.

Israel showed at Osirak that they are not going to let a muslim country have nukes.  They won’t let Iran either if it comes down to it.  They only listen to us if their security is not directly threatened, and Israel has always felt that a middle east nation with the bomb is a direct threat to their existence…which it is.  They have the bomb, so it’s a little hypocritical to say others shouldn’t, but I’m kind of an Israel fan so I don’t mind a little hypocrisy.

Pakistan has the bomb.  Several attempts have been made on Musharrafs life.  The al qaeda #2 has given us the three warnings notification required by the Quran.  Osama showed up on a video tape.  Whether he is alive or dead is an academic question. All the portents are there, and al qaeda has called for holy war against the pakistani government.

If we are going to invest ourselves in open conflict anywhere it really needs to be there.  Thats the threat.  We can defuse the Iranian issue with diplomacy, and a slow but coming withdrawal from Iraq.  Al Qaeda and the Taliban have proven they can’t be talked to, and its time to finish the little mess we made there.  Sorry pauliacs and messiah…you’re gnashing of teeth and rending of flesh over your projected Gulf of Tonkin incident makes no sense in the big picture.  Of course, Bush has proven he isn’t a big picture guy.

   These pesky muslims really have us chasing our tail don’t they?  We never learn from our mistakes, and this is proof of it.  When you get a snake by the neck you choke it until it is dead, dead, dead, you don’t let it go to see if it will bite you again.


war…stupidity…etc

July 15, 2007

(some profanity)  I’ve been sort of drifting lately, no real rhyme nor reason to the progression of life as I know it, and i find it to be an enjoyable interlude.  Actually, me with purpose is probably the interlude, but I’ll tell my lies the way I like them. Other than raising the kiddoes I don’t get real worked up about anything, and the whole blog thing has been a real laughfest for me.  The singlemindedness I see here is a wonderful counter to my chaotic nature, and there are just enough free will types to keep me from getting overly bored.

Ok, that was the extraneous bullshit paragraph.  i’m thinking there will be several more of those, so if you seek content there’s *points* the door.  I’m a bit of a history buff.  Not one of those bookish coffee drinking stay up till three a.m running through the lists of civil war casualties types, but more one who likes to read about it, and visualize the things the way they must have been.  In other words, it’s not clinical for me, rather more entertainment.  I can get totally engrossed in how the people in stalingrad were living through those 900 + days of seige, but couldn’t care less how many boots the german army went through.

   History has taught us all we will ever need to know about civilization, warfare, and the failings of reason.  I’m almost certain that the only thing more ridiculous than the practice of warfare is the practice of humane warfare.  Wars can be fought and won, and then if you are the winner you get to write about how just your cause was, and how brave your armies fought.  If you practice humane warfare you never get to write those history books.

   This is why America shouldn’t fight war.  We, in essence, are pussies.  Maybe not everybody, but certainly an overwhelming majority of society.   We enter into wars with justification, and then spend our time trying to explain why we did it to the hand-wringing spectators and disloyal opposition.  The current wars are a very good case study on what a bunch of shit for brains we elect for leaders, and what a bunch of assmunching dickheads are those who enjoy the fruits of liberty, but are never willing to let others succeed while paying the cost to keep them free.

The war on terror –  that lunatic osama reared his ugly head again.  Only for a minute on a 40 minute tape, but he did it.  It could be from anywhere and any when, but that really doesn’t matter.  what matters is because we spend all our time trying to please the weakest amongst us, the strong have failed in their mission.  Like it or not, we should have gone in annihilated every living thing within 50 miles of that worthless cocksucker, because that is what he would do if the situations were reversed.  We should have made sure there was a nice cozy spot in hell filled with his miserable carcass, and then we should have moved onto his followers, cutting a swath across the middleast and southwest asia that the world would never forget.  Sounds deranged, but if you want him, its the only way to get him.

   As far as all those who think the war in Iraq shouldn’t have happened… I am with you.  However, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t justified.  Just as Cuba had every justification to attack America when our government tried to have Castro assassinated, we had every right to attack Iraq when Saddam tried to have our president assassinated.  Assassination has always been justification for wasr.  I’m almost certain thats what started world war I.  You might say well it would have been foolhardy for Cuba to attack us.  So?  War is always foolhardy.  Tough shit says I. 

  Again though  we did it wrong.  We should have set every weapon we had on terminate, and turned the dump into a parking lot.  Wars are not won humanely, and shouldn’t be fought that way.  Instead we occupy the territory, and try to be humane, and just.  We sit on our collective asses long enough to let the terrorists get their shit together, and our children start coming home in boxes.  Not even a lot of boxes.  Just a few, but its enough to turn this cowardly society of ours into a gelatinous mass of quivering outrage.  the war between the states would have been still going on had it been fought this way, and seig heil would be in common usage in Iowa had the second world war been.

I am not a fan of war.  I think in a lot of cases they exist as a form of violent population control.  If you don’t think so work out a matrix as to what the world population would be today had WWII not happened.  It’s kind of scary.  I’d give you my numbers, but i suck at math so they are probably wrong.  Starvation would be an issue, especially since in our incredibly enlightened society genetic engineering designed to increase food production is baaaaaaaad.  diseases, overcrowding, unemployment, forced birth control…would all be issues.  War’s only true good purpose is to prevent overcrowding…how sick is that?

anyway, this has been my manifesto on what a bunch of pussified anti- warmongers we are.  It could go on ponderously for hours, but I’m bored with it, and was just heading into waste my breath mode…in closing I’d like to say that civilization is a myth.  We wear the clothes, and invent the toys, but inside you and I will always be savages.  It’s in our nature.


Did Osama charter flight after 9/11?

June 23, 2007

   Well you loveable little lefties, other than a gazillion left wing bloggers suffering from what appears to be extreme psychotic episodes brought on by over self flagellation, that answer would be no.

In fact, based on what the FBI spokesman says their is nothing in the judicial watch paperwork that hasn’t already been seen by the 9/11 commission.

I know how this hurts y’all, but you’ll get through it.  Have a group hug, snivel a little, and come up with a new conspiracy theory.  Or better yet, threaten the democratic candidates.  Its fun to watch the dogs ass wag the dog  Hell, this is even funner than reading the whining about the conspiracy to silence Ron Paul..
