Help! I’ve Fallen Into a Rabbit Hole and I Can’t Get Up!

The New York Obama-Times suddenly argues that withdrawing from a conflict (that isn’t really one, per Ogabelini, since our drone strikes don’t equate to “hostilities” or some such liberal horse manure) is detrimental to our nation’s credibility. No, we’re not shitting you:

One measure, sponsored by Representative Thomas Rooney and apparently backed by the House leadership, would allow financing only for American surveillance, search-and-rescue missions, planning and aerial refueling. Republicans say that if it passes, the Pentagon would have to halt drone strikes and attacks on Libyan air defenses.

They claimed it would do minimal damage to the alliance and its campaign because the United States would still be providing some support. But the damage to this country’s credibility, and its leadership of NATO, would be enormous. Any sign that the United States is bailing out could lead others to follow.

Gee… We wonder why on earth the editorial board at the New York Premature Surrender Times needed 8 years of caterwauling about “needless wars” before they came to this realization.

No, we don’t. All it took was for their Anointed Lightworker to ascend to the throne instead of that evil, horrid Bush. Then suddenly the New York Pravda was perfectly OK with any act of war of ours, no matter how flimsy and inconsistent the justification, and to question the Administration is just downright… UNPATRIOTIC!

Apparently it’s OK to question somebody’s patriotism after all, according to the New York Double Standard, as long as that somebody has the “wrong” political opinions.

They then went on to babble about “national security”, but decided that the hypocrisy and sheer lunacy of claiming that our national security is the slightest at risk here was too much, even for Pravda on the Hudson, so they scrubbed that out of the online version, but the original read like this:

We also believe Congress has an important role to play in this debate. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee plans to vote on the Kerry-McCain measure next week. The majority leader, Harry Reid, has said he has the votes in the Senate. Thankfully, some Senate Republicans also seem to understand the importance of the United States following through on its national security commitments.

Our much vaunted “national security commitments” to keep thugs from shooting their own civilians. Unless said thugs are named Ahmadinnerjacket or Assad, of course. We’ll just “bear witness” to those slaughters.


UPDATE: The Hildebeest is now questioning the patriotism of those who disagree with Ogabelini too:

But the bottom line is, whose side are you on? Are you on Qadhafi’s side or are you on the side of the aspirations of the Libyan people and the international coalition that has been created to support them? For the Obama Administration, the answer to that question is very easy.

Fortunately, we already have the perfect retort for that one:

I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.

Nicely put, Hildebeest.

It’s fun watching liberal fascist idiots arguing with themselves. Schizophrenia, it’s what’s for breakfast!

Cash for Pumpers By Jeffrey Folks On Thursday the President announced that he would release 30 million barrels of oil from the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve. The immediate effect on world markets was to knock the oil price down by over $4 a barrel. But many experts question the wisdom — and the timing — of the move. Clearly, the… Read more »

I initially supported military action in Libya to aid the rebels, provided a few key components were in place. 1. We were in it full court press. No limited air campaign, no “end dates”. Ground force commitment and total victory, that being defined as the removal of Khadafi and the establishment of a western-friendly democracy. Part of the overall strategy… Read more »

It’s fun watching liberal fascist idiots arguing with themselves. Schizophrenia, it’s what’s for breakfast! I have to repestfully disagree. These are the traitors that are either composed of Marxists with their America destroying masturbatory policies or “somewhere a village is missing their idiots” (a majority being composed of both) that are running this once beautiful country over the cliff. It’s… Read more »

Any sign that the United States is bailing out could lead others to follow . And this would be bad…how? The time is long overdue that we cast aside our role as the world’s policeman. Let’s solve the problems at home, and then, MAYBE, we can start thinking about solving other people’s problems. The very first drop of JP4 that… Read more »

This is a complex issue. On the one hand, America’s strategic goals in this military project seem vague and uncertain. Sun Tzu said to only fight when there is something to be gained. What is at stake here for our long-term foreign policy? Again, this is beyond fuzzy to me. But pulling money away from Americans fighting in obedience to… Read more »

But pulling money away from Americans fighting in obedience to the Commander-In-Chief’s orders seems inappropriate.

Don’t defund ’em.

Bring ’em home from a job they never should have been sent on in the first place.

I do not understand how this current fight amongs the Islamists differs from intervening in behalf of the Vice Lords against the Gangster Disciples. I do not believe the rebels intend by freedom what we might understand. Will we bext send arms to Cali to aid them against Medillin? Oh wait. We’re doin’ that already. Hiilldy, what ever happened to… Read more »

This is merely more proof that hypocrisy exists on both sides of the aisle. It’s all well and good when it’s your guy doing it but god forbid the other party tries the same tactics. I’m tired of war. We have been at war for almost 10 years now with no foreseeable end in sight. As I prep for what… Read more »

I read St. Thomas More’s “Utopia”. As most do, I found it to be a humorous look at collectivism, centuries ahead of its time. What worries me is that he wrote it in such a deadpan, British sense of humor, that I see a lot of people (<0's more overeducated disciples among them) looking at it and saying, "Hey, that… Read more »

@Sir Crunchie I agree and had the same thoughts and conditions. Since the Muslim Brotherhood appears to be supporting the rebels, we are basically fucked!! And why not supporting Chad? (Chad has supported us!! Operation Mount Hope III! )They have had issues with Libya as long as I can remember! And why not go and get involved in Darfur? Pick… Read more »
