The Humanitarian War

Watch  The Humanitarian War.    Curveball strikes again.  It’s the same damned playbook.

“Responsibility 2 Protect” is the witty handmaiden of imperial power, and it’s easy for liberals to text.

RU4 R2P?

Gaddafi got in the way of Empire!    Gaddafi wanted an African Union, independent banking.  We wanted AFRICOM (and light, sweet crude).  Bang, bang.  You’re dead.  “We came, we saw, he died.  Ha, ha.”  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy, R2P is slick and sleazy.  Most liberals not only fell for it, they continue claiming bragging rights!  Don’t tell that to Obama supporters, unless you want to be labeled a purity troll and hear inept comparisons to taking out Dillinger.  That’s how these hypo-criticals roll.

When the media claimed Gaddafi was handing out boner pills so his soldiers could rape more effectively, you had to be an idiot not to still smell the bullshit from the Iraqi incubator story.

This is not a momentary lapse of reason, but simple alternation, resulting in a continuous lapse of reason: conduct wars that liberals like, then conduct wars conservatives like, and so on.   Vilification of the victims is “a cakewalk” with threshold public support.  

Now a majority of Americans want to go to war with Iran, if they try to get nukes, which I’m certain we will assure ourselves is true, despite any lack of evidence.  We have informants we trust in MEK.  Ask Howard Dean!  Yee-argh!

I’m looking forward to the shoot-out in the bathtub.  I’ve never seen modern, nuclear-powered aircraft carriers sink.  Besides, killing a million (more) Iranians, a massive land war in Asia, sky-rocketing oil prices, and some heavy duty military spending are just what we need to get this economy rolling (faster, downhill, backwards, with no brakes).

Maybe the commies have us in their mind rays, and are just paying us back for their collapse.  Nah, we’re just that stupid.


Libya is fucked up, just like Iraq.

We came, we saw, he died.

Hillary the Tittering Medusa:

Plumb the icy depths of numbed, unmindful unfeeling, how she skips across the surface, slapping the cold waves before seeing herself and sinking.

R2P Bahrain!

The Obama/Power “Responsibility to Protect (R2P)” Doctrine gets thrown under the police SUVs “vehicularly manslaughtered” in the kingdom of Bahrain, home of the US Fifth Fleet:

They must be running out of bullets for their usual point blank

and drive-by shootings,

and plain old machine-gunning of peaceful protestors.

Could we at least send them some extra gurneys?

Or would that offend our gracious hosts?

After Libya, how could we NOT bomb Syria?

The self-propelling logic of war, a “news analysis” courtesy of the New York Times:

Syria … could pose a thorny dilemma for the administration…. Having intervened in Libya to prevent a wholesale slaughter in Benghazi, some analysts asked, how could the administration not do the same in Syria?


Elsewhere in the NYT, Greg Mankiw demands “austerity now.”
