Failing “Forward”

The last 48 hours have seen the current administration reap a bumper crop of clusterfuckery. I have been at a loss for a way to summarize it, until I stumbled across this image on the vast interwebs:

That about sums it up nicely, don’t you think? Time for Barrack Hussein Ahmsari to go. Now. Right now.

Reagan had some less-than-strong moments, too, though. USS Stark, Beirut Marine barracks, an awful lot of hijackings, bombings, and airport shootings etc. I’d much rather have Reagan than the Obamessiah, but pretty much every US President who’s faced Islamic/Arabic violence has been passive as much as they’ve been forceful, and many of the forceful responses have been pretty limited.

I was offshore when the Marines got truck-bombed in Lebanon. Yeah, we weren’t ready for that one. I will say that there was a LOT more shelling from Navy ships than is commonly known. The New Jersey shot itself practically dry, reloaded and did it again. My cruiser did the same. There were a series of ‘bombproof’ bunkers built by… Read more »

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted. Time for Obama to throw Hillary under the… Read more »

Well, he does have the perfect excuse, LC Gladiator. He’s just too darn much of a sophisticate to attend those mundane Presidential Daily Briefings where they discuss that kind of stuff. At least that’s what were told by those who wear those White House-issued embroidered kneepads.

They’ve started attacking the British and German embassies. Currently the German embassy is in flames.

Protests also hit a number of Muslim countries in the region including Egypt, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait and Qatar.

Looks like kissing their asses didn’t work there for ya bam-bam.

The campus of UT Austin is being evacuated due to bomb threat. And also on 9/11 a radioactive probe used in fracking came up “missing” in west Texas. Halliburton told the state that workers discovered on Sept. 11 that a lock on the container used to transport the device was missing, along with the unit, after driving a truck to… Read more »

I guess it’s not common knowledge there is a Hamas “retreat” in SoCal and another one in upstate NY. Probably more. One wonders why the fuck we haven’t cleaned them out and salted the earth. Then I realize who’s in charge.

Never mind.

UT wasn’t the only school to receive a threat Friday. The campus of North Dakota State University in Fargo was evacuated Friday morning after receiving a bomb threat. No injuries have been reported in that incident either.

And a handy map showing the riots all over the world.

Not to be a “tin foil hat” type here, but, it looks as if World War 3 has been kicked off for real. And that folks, has me worried with all of the ROPer’s we have in America.

If she wasn’t rusting into her mooring place, I’d volunteer the Battleship Texas to go teach them some old-school diplomacy! (Maybe we need an eccentric Texas billionaire to fund a restoration and secret weapons upgrade to her, a la Daniel da Cruz’s Ayes of Texas!)

Actually, Nicki, more than anything else, my comment was intended as a riff on those who defend his absences by characterizing him as “among the most sophisticated consumers of intelligence on the planet” and someone doesn’t require personal briefings.

Well, that and the chance to link to that remark about the media and their “embroidered kneepads”.

Not to worry *too* much, it’s not fissile material, but CAN cause a helluva mess if detonated with some sticks of dynamite. Exposure can be limited but the cleanup time and cost would be astronomical…

LC LOBO @ #: I’d like to think that da Cruz used Perot as an inspiration for his protagonist, tho it came out in ’82, so I can’t say for sure.

In regards to his attendance at his briefings, you can’t Q&A a document, nor do I think its unreasonable to expect any POTUS to be particularily attentive to security briefings as we approach this time of year. This is insane, it is obvious that our posture was less than adequate, its obvious our ROE on the matter of embassy security… Read more »

if by consume they mean “to destroy, use up or expend” i would say it’s a good discription of Mr. Obama.

So what if the briefs for that week didn’t include any information on any potential trouble in the area?

Just asking the question.

Report: Egypt Intelligence Warned of Embassy Attacks as Early as Sept 4

Records: Obama Skipped All Daily Intellligence Briefings Since Sept. 5

ANY QUESTIONS?

Our country is not well. The Census Department says median income continued to fall in 2011. A separate analysis found that incomes are down almost 5 percent since the Obama “recovery” began—illustrating that, despite what Bill Clinton might say, the Obama recovery is not a recovery at all. The drop in the unemployment rate from the recession high of 10… Read more »
