It was the first word in the title of this piece that got the ball rolling in my noggin: failed.
Up until Barack Obama, there hadn’t been any sighting of the words “US Special Forces” and failed in the same sentence across the bulk of my 50+ years of life, save for the peace-whore peanut magnate who screwed up the Iran debacle that put us where we are today with those bastards, and the wet-stogey-sniffing ugly secretary officionado that dropped some of our birds in the laps of an enemy we weren’t even at war with.
And, in keeping with the standard m.o of soldier-hating Democrats who seem to enjoy putting our men and women in harm’s way with no clear (or sensible) objective, while getting oodles of media slobber to distract us from all the other things he’s screwing up, President HopeyChangey has taken his own turn (again) at trying to prove he can effectively command the once-most feared and respected military in the history of mankind while ultimately making us look like a bunch of chumps in the process. Take heart my fellow citizens… he’s failed (of course) but – as all liberals would agree – it’s the “trying” that matters in the end… not the meeting of the freaking objective… and that’s what wins the hearts and minds of the low-browed a$$hats that keep voting in favor of the status quo in DC after all.
There’s something about this failed Seals story, though, that I just can’t let go of. As pieces of the story come forward, it got me to spend some time looking back a little in recent history just to make sure my tinfoil hat was correctly adjusted. Bear with me… I had to spend a lot of time in the GOOGspook dungeon archives to see if I had this right.
There is a war going on in Darfur that has claimed many thousands of lives as well as having displaced over a million innocents. Did I mention the rapes of men, women, and children… all in the name of ‘ethnic cleansing’… that no one seems to want to do too much about? Well, here we are all these years later (and with a Peace Prize in his glass case as a show of appreciation for things he hadn’t even done) and the raping and killing continues… with no US Special Forces in play.
And, lest we forget, we also have that messy little embassy attack thingy where Americans were killed, one of whom was humiliated and sodomized and subjected to a horrific and very public murder, and yet there are no US Special Forces in play to exact a little American justice. And… not to be outdone… we have Syrians (government and rebels alike) killing each other (and with chemical weapons to boot) with reckless abandon, and… no US Special Forces in play there, either.
And then there’s that silly little matter of all those suicide bombs going off in that country we freed from a dictator, and of course that other little place we rid of the Taliban (who we are negotiating our surrender to as we speak) and, again I ask… where is President HopeyChangey? Ahh… that’s right… he’s chasing after a few terrorists we aren’t fighting anymore because the Global war on terror has been won, and the bad guys are on the run. How silly of me!
You know, as I wind this down, I decided to go back and look at the number of deaths of our soldiers while this President mulled a new strategy… over… and over… and over… and over… and freaking over again… and I see that HopeyChangey the Clown, Peace Prize Winner Emeritus, has been Commander-in-Chief for nearly 75% of these deaths. Worse, many of these deaths could have been avoided if he’d have just made up his freaking mind to surrender and retreat 5 years ago. There would been plenty of money left over to piss away on the mushminds who fawn at his feet. If he’d done that, we might be having less of his fiscal mess to clean up after.
Did I mention that he’s killed a lot of people in a LOT of places… all of which we are not at war with… since winning that Peace prize he never did a damn thing to earn?
It’s incredible that he took so long to decide when to surrender in Afghanistan… or the eternity he took trying to man up and take OBL out… or even the time he took waiting for Putin to make him his bitch. And yet, in less than 2 weeks, he summoned the sack to launch an offensive in a place we aren’t at war with, to go after bad guys we keep saying are on the run and are no longer a threat, and all because some of them may have had something to do with some attack in some mall in Kenya somewhere?
Oh wait… do we know the last names of the victims that were out shopping that day?
By God, this is all starting to make a little more sense now.
