Last night the Hawk and I watched some Fox TV news. A Muslim leader of some sort stated that Libya was now an Islamic State with Sharia Law.
I turned to the Hawk and said, “Wow, what a surprise, a radical Islamic country with Sharia Law! Who da thunk?”
Obviously it was NOT the Beltway Brain Bank that thought of this. As I recall we went into Libya, under UN “permission”, not Congress, to carry out a mission of “protection for humanitarian purposes”. This was not a war, we were told, just a simple humanitarian effort to free the Libyan people from their odious dictator, Gaddafi. But, we could not kill him. Somehow someone else had to do this.
While I’m thinking here can the Muslims not name their children some name I can understand? How about Manny Gaddafi instead of Muammar? How un-PC of me of course, but I do have this fatal flaw of not being able to remember all the Muslims we have captured/killed due to my inability to pronounce their names. Gaddifi’s son, Mustassim Gaddifi also was killed for humanitarian reasons. Now, how about that son being named Mustang Gaddifi? See how much easier that rolls off the tongue?
But, I digress from my main issue. The BBBs continually told us that this “contingency” effort in Libya will only last for a couple of days or perhaps for several weeks. They told us this for almost 8 months. Therefore, am I to then think that the BBBs in DC are unable to do math? Or are they just, you know, fooling around with us for fun?
As time progressed, we witnessed NATO planes fly over Libya carpet bombing convoys, anti-missile sites, whatever. There are no boots on the ground we are told.
Right, we, the unwashed masses out here, have no intellect, but we were able to figure out to strike these sites with accuracy there had to be a boot/s on the ground marking the spot for the planes to bomb.
Hellfire Tomahawk missiles, hundreds or maybe thousands of them were shot off into Libya. Nope, this is not a war. Just close your eyes and forget about those missiles you saw that “killed” people. And damn, here I thought it was a “humanitarian effort” we were working on. You know, protecting people! Oh, I forget myself, “we had to kill people to protect people to become free people. OK. Got it!
I turned to the Hawk and said to him, have you ever thought about the Brain Bank in the Beltway that thinks up these foreign policy missions? The Hawk and I laughed so hard we nearly fell out of bed.
Can you imagine who these people are, or what they look like? Do these foreign policy brains look like normal people or are they strange and mysterious looking, somewhat alien if we were to see them?
Now, these BBBs told us that once Libya was “freed” whatever that meant, we would then have a great democracy and peace across the land of Libya.
The American people thought about this for about 2 seconds and came to the conclusion that Libya was most likely to become a radical Islamic State with Sharia law.
But, oh no, one of the BBBs assured us that even though the Muslim brotherhood was there and possibly Al Qaeda, never mind, these rebels wanted freedom. Yes, indeed, freedom to live in peace and love across the ME which of course we have yet to see to this date.
According to Daniel Pipes, an ME expert, I quote: “…..the Middle East is only one part of the Muslim world. Europe has become an incubator for Islamist thought and political development. Since the early 1960s, Muslim Brotherhood members and sympathizers have moved to Europe and slowly but steadily established a wide and well-organized network of mosques, charities, and Islamic organizations. Unlike the larger Islamic community, the Muslim Brotherhood’s ultimate goal may not be simply “to help Muslims be the best citizens they can be,” but rather to extend Islamic law throughout Europe and the United States.”
But, how can this be? Didn’t one of the BBBs tell us the Muslim Brotherhood was nothing about which to be concerned? I distinctly recall hearing testimony on this.
We discover that we supplied weapons and other equipment including “man mat missile launchers” as they call them, but now tons of them are missing. OMG! Now that is quite scary to me but apparently not to the BBBs in DC. Perhaps they have a scavenger hunt arranged for Thanksgiving?
Will there be hundreds of “boots on the ground” looking for these things? Will they find them? Who took them? Where did they go? These are questions I have for the BBBs in DC. One spy, John Bolton, told us just the other day these things were showing up on the Gaza strip.
As one of those unwashed persons in flyover country America there is just no way I could figure out that this could happen. Wrong, I did along with a lot of other people.
Oh, those BBBs are so amusing are they not? The fantastical things they expect us to believe because their “brains are so big” compared to the average American. I have to wonder how they keep these large appendages on their necks all day long. Surely with brains this large there must be a terrible hardship involved. Maybe even a disease, something like Brain Bank Challenged? Nah. That would be the BBC then. I have to come up with another disability. Private Bullright will help on that one.
Now, I get to the point of my musings and the Hawk’s and we ask a few questions. I know, believe me, I know, we are not supposed to do any thinking for ourselves. We do realize that is outlawed now, but we must break that law.
We hear from the media/foreign policy analysts/spin doctors/talking heads; you know all those BBB types that say Herman Cain cannot be president. Herman Cain has no “foreign policy” experience and therefore he cannot be president.
Why we ask? Could he do any worse than these BBBs we have in DC? Do you think it is possible he could do better? After all, the foreign policy we have now is a bit over rated, at least to me and the Hawk.
Could Herman Cain explain to the American people what he is doing with his foreign policy? The BBBs are rather hard to understand. It is confusing and discombobulating. It is what I call “crazy making”. Ha, the Hawk and I can understand Herman Cain quite clearly when he speaks. We have no trouble deciphering what he says, unlike the BBBs who speak in tongues.
I really do hate to burst the bubble of the BBBs, but we don’t think they are all that great at thinking. Not from what we see. So, we think Herman Cain, this mere mortal, successful businessman just might be able to figure this foreign policy stuff out. Even we dumb unwashed masses out here in Middle America figured it out long before the BBBs that Libya would be an Islamist Radical State with Sharia Law. Who da thunk it?
