Look Who’s Back!

(Via Bill Quick)

Looks like somebody is pouring salt in our Iraqi victory soup again, somebody you might have heard about before:

“Baghdad teetered on the edge of political chaos Sunday. The city is in a state of emergency, protesters have occupied parts of the once-secure International Zone (IZ), lawmakers have run away and the military is on high alert.”

This resounding victory of ours just keeps getting more and more resoundingly decisive, doesn’t it?

Protesters, many of them supporters of Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, attached cables to the tops of heavy concrete blast walls that surround the Green Zone, pulling them down to create an opening, television footage showed.

Muqtada al… Waitaminnit, haven’t we heard that name somewhere before? Bill certainly has:

But…but…but…

Haven’t we been told repeatedly by Bushbots and other dumbasses that (Iranian surrogate) al-Sadr and his faction had been completely eliminated as an influence inside Iraq?
Some people are going to be rather amazed when Iran subsumes Iraq into its sphere of influence – at minimum – or simply takes over its government via al-Sadr and others of his ilk. “Who could possibly have predicted something like this?” they will wail.

People who aren’t credulous dumbasses, that’s who.

Mind you, Bill wrote that way back in the day when warmongering, unreasonable, hateful, unrealistic “keyboard warriors” and “armchair generals” like Bill and our humble self were being assured time and time again by much brighter and even-keeled minds that Muttfucker al-Sadass was absolutely irrelevant now and that it was much, much more important to ensure that the “winning of hearts and minds” proceed apace than to keep pursuing a non-actor like him out of sheer primitive and pointless vengeance etc.

Interesting, isn’t it?

Now, we’re far too humble to suggest that our powers of prognostication, Imperial though they be, are advanced enough that we could have firmly predicted that Muffcatarrh and his troglodyte savages would eventually come to take over Baghdad, but we can’t help but thinking that maybe there’s something to be said about our “primitive” Imperial dictum that whereas the chances of some goat-bothering muslim barbarian becoming a problem in the future might be ever so slim, “slim” is still greater than “zero.”

The corollary being that “the chances of bad deeds being done by a waste of skin that has previously been turned into compost and pig swill are always exactly zero. So, just to be on the safe side…”

But what do we know?

Thatisall.

    Obviously, someone has a very different idea of what “Eliminated” means. You wanted to eliminate Al Sadr? Then you should have driven him out into the desert, make him dig his own grave and then shoot him in the head.

    Muttfucker Al-Sadass needed a good killin’ a loooooong time ago. It’s exactly like the chances of a paedophile rapist being a recidivist are reduced to 0% if said paedophile has assumed ambient air temperature. But, never let it be said that there isn’t a corner of the planet where Obungler the Limp-Wristed hasn’t had coital relations with the canine*. His “legacy” will make Neville Chamberlain’s look absolutely stellar.

    *- “W” should have had the balls to “call the shot” on Muttfucker, too, but at least he didn’t abandon the hard-won battlefield and leave Iraq to the tender ministrations of ISIS and Iran.

    An Iraq united, secure, and free…that was the original strategic goal, right?

    Well, zero out of three ain’t bad, I guess.

    Presidents Chimpy and Momjeans really hit it out of the park on this one.

    Well, Chimpy did leave things relatively stable, then Der Fubar and Cankles came in and decided “Stability? Naa, we’re all about change here!”

    President “Chimpy” did the best he could given that he had a traitorous congress and opposition party determined to make the mission a failure. Given my old background in working with training and doctrine for the military, I believe the only real mistake Bush made was to invade when he did…..we hadn’t fully stabilized Afghanistan yet so he essentially turned a one front war into a two front war, with the enemy (Iran and it’s toadies) having interior lines of battle. He should have waited about a year and then invaded.

    Just my opinion

    Well, I was here in spirit, maybe, but I dropped out of the blogosphere for a couple of years, and then off the face of the ‘net completely. And then I lost my old login and password and couldn’t get back in.

    I finally bumped into Misha over at Bill Quick’s where I’ve been blogging lately, and he smuggled me back into the Empire past the Dimmocrat Legions and the #neverTrump Farces of Dorkness.

    Day-um. It’s gettin’ ugly out there. I’ve been having the time of my life. :em01:

    From Playboy Magazine, 1990, interview with Donald Trump. Just FYI.

    in 1990—too good not to share these bits:

    Besides the real-estate deal, you’ve met with top-level Soviet officials to negotiate potential business deals with them; how did they strike you?
    Generally, these guys are much tougher and smarter than our representatives. We have people in this country just as smart, but unfortunately, they’re not elected officials. We’re still suffering from a loss of respect that goes back to the Carter Administration, when helicopters were crashing into one another in Iran.

    That was Carter’s emblem. There he was, being carried off from a race, needing oxygen. I don’t want my President to be carried off a race course. I don’t want my President landing on Austrian soil and falling down the stairs of his airplane. Some of our Presidents have been incredible jerk-offs. We need to be tough.

    A favorite word of yours, tough. How do you define it?
    Tough is being mentally capable of winning battles against an opponent and doing it with a smile. Tough is winning systematically.

    Sometimes you sound like a Presidential candidate stirring up the voters.
    I don’t want the Presidency. I’m going to help a lot of people with my foundation–and for me, the grass isn’t always greener.

    But if the grass ever did look greener, which political party do you think you’d be more comfortable with?
    Well, if I ever ran for office, I’d do better as a Democrat than as a Republican–and that’s not because I’d be more liberal, because I’m conservative. But the working guy would elect me. He likes me. When I walk down the street, those cabbies start yelling out their windows.

    Another game: What’s the first thing President Trump would do upon entering the Oval Office?
    Many things. A toughness of attitude would prevail. I’d throw a tax on every Mercedes-Benz rolling into this country and on all Japanese products, and we’d have wonderful allies again.

    Would you rescue our remaining hostages in Lebanon?
    Number one, in almost all cases, the hostages were told by our Government not to be there. If a man decides to become a professor at Beirut University, when he was told not to be there, and that person is captured—

    He deserves it?
    You feel very bad for him, but you cannot base foreign policy on his capture. With that being said, when they killed our Colonel Higgins, I would have retaliated militarily immediately. I would have hit something vital to them. And hit it hard. In any other case, I would let the takers of hostages know that they’d have one week to return that hostage. And after that week, all bets would be off. You would not have any more hostages taken, believe me. Weakness always causes problems.

    Do you think George Bush is soft?
    I like George Bush very much and support him and always will. But I disagree with him when he talks of a kinder, gentler America. I think if this country gets any kinder or gentler, it’s literally going to cease to exist. I think if we had people from the business community–the Carl Icahns, the Ross Perots–negotiating some of our foreign policy, we’d have respect around the world.

    What would President Trump’s position on crime be?
    I see the values of this country in the way crime is tolerated, where people are virtually afraid to say “I want the death penalty.” Well, I want it. Where has this country gone when you’re not supposed to put in a grave the son of a bitch who robbed, beat, murdered and threw a ninety-year-old woman off the building? Where has this country gone?

    What would be some of President Trump’s longer-term views of the future?
    I think of the future, but I refuse to paint it. Anything can happen.

    And anything has.

    I hate to say it but he is right. As much as any President is sworn to care for his citizens, the citizen must also take responsibility for their actions. If he is in a war zone and gets hurt…thats bad but he was in a war zone.

    If he or she is in a city that is notorious for kidnapping foreigners and he gets captured…well we of course have to try and get him or her back alive..but they also have to accept that they knew the risks.

    Sorry but its true.

    Cruz is finished. Done. And if he gets into that convention and tries to wreck it,. whatever is left of his credibility will kiss itself goodbye. The smart thing for him to do is withdraw with grace..sadly with fuckwits like him, subtle and common sense arent words he understands.

    Lost in translation, I believe ;)

    The original word is one that means “pouring in more salt after it’s already had what it needs”, but I can’t think of one word in English that means the exact same. Ach, some things just can’t be translated.
