Bush On Iran

Former President George Bush decided to offer some observations on foreign policy toward Iran. He was speaking at a Jewish Republican meeting and made clear that if he was still president, there would be every tougher sanctions imposed upon Iran. So, let us examine how Republican presidents have handled Iran.

1.In 1953, the people of Iran were led by a secular man named Mossadegh. He had controlled Islamic imams and endeavored to create a modern secular Iran. He also had the crazy idea that England should be paying the nation of Iran higher royalties for developing their oil deposits. In stepped the CIA and the English M16 who organized a coup that resulted in the end of democracy in Iran.

2. During the 1980s, Republican President Ronald Reagan provided aid and support to guess who–Saddam Hussein. Saddam had invaded Iran in a war that led to the death of over one million Iranians. The war concluded with a stalemate.

3. In 2001 as American forces swept through Afghanistan, Iran reform President Khatami closed the border to prevent the Taliban from fleeing and provided the US with intelligence regarding the presence of the Taliban. He also offered to recognize Israel, end support for terrorism and allow UN inspection of nuclear facilities. Bush never responded to the offer.

So, what was that about imposing stricter sanctions??

Republican Candidates Galore

It is one year before the election of our next president which means the list of those seeking this position contains more and more names each passing day. At current, we have:

1. Jeb Bush who is a secret Hispanic, a devout Catholic and he has no connection to anyone carrying the last name of Bush. He is really related to Busch beer.

2. Chris Christy can never attend a meeting on time because he gets stuck in traffic jams on bridges.

3. Rich Perry is still working to memorize how many Cabinet members there are and what are the names of those Cabinets.

4. Rich Santorum is busy buying new sweaters so he can come across as just another Joe.

5. Rand Paul wants everyone to know that what he advocated yesterday has no relationship to what he stands for today.

6. Marco Rubio is young at heart and therefore this entitles him to become our next president.

7. Donald Trump is currently very busy in Africa tracing down the birth certificate of you know who.

8. Lindsay Graham is seeking to persuade anyone outside the state of South Carolina that he is running for president.

Oh, for the days of Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann. I so miss these two female clowns!

Chairman Barack At Gathering

Every year each American president is provided one opportunity to express his sense of humor before the annual gathering of White House correspondents. President Obama displayed an interesting sense of humor

“Just this week, Michele Bachmann predicted that I would bring about the biblical end of days. Now, that is some legacy!”

Donald Trump is still here–still”

Turns out that Jeb Bush identified himself as an Hispanic back in 2009. You know that is an innocent mistake. It reminds me of when I identified myself as an American.

“Ted Cruz said that denying the existence climate change made him like Galileo. That’s not really an apt comparison. Galileo believe the Earth revolved around the sun. Ted Cruz believes the sun revolves around Ted Cruz.”

Let me add a few:

“Sarah Palin looked out the window and saw God gazing into her house wondering if this was really the result of a million years of evolution of humans.”

“Rand Paul stood up for ending military involvement in the Middle East before he came out for it.””

“Sheldon Adelson threw his money into the ring.”

“Bibi Netanyahu insists that he is the right choice to play Moses, after all he brought Israelis out of the land of peace into the land of war”

Another Day Another Candidate

It is Monday in America and those seeking the nomination for the Republican party as the next president of the United States of America will have to get at the back of the line. As of this moment, we have in line:

Jeb Bush

Maroc Rubio

Rand Paul

Rick Santorum

Chris Christy

Rick Perry

Scott Walker

Of course, Donald Trump

Oh, and the governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder joined the Rick party and wants to announce that he definitely wants to become President of this land. Naturally, he made the announcement in Las Vega at a meeting called by the Republican Jewish coalition. I assume that Sheldon Adelson was there checking that no one used the expression, “occupied West Bank” instead of the Israel West Bank. No Republican wants to anger the man who will be offering a $100 million prize to the one who can suck the behinds of the Koch Brothers and Adelson.

Republicans For Christianity

A common theme among those seeking the Republican nomination for president is their commitment to the Christian religion. They insist that President Barack Obama is a secret Muslim or that he not only hates America but he hates Christianity. Republicans wrap themselves in the mantle of Christianity and proclaim that if elected they will defend Christians throughout the world. Let us examine the Republican party record in defending and protecting Christians in the Middle East.

1. When Republican President George Bush invaded the country of Iraq there were 800,000 Christians who could trace their ancestry back nearly 1800 years ago. Saddam Hussein was always protective of Christians because they wound up owing him for that protection and would not oppose him in power.

2. Along came the Americans. Now, there are about 250,000 Christians in Iraq. The rest have fled for their lives.

3. Why did they flee? George Bush installed people like Prime Minister Maliki who hated Christians and allowed Muslim fanatics to murder, harass and drive them from the country.

4. There are Christians in Syria and they are already gone or shortly will depart.

The Bush policies have been the greatest disaster for Christians in history.

So, Rand and Ted and Jeb sing out your love of Christianity. One more Republican president and there will not be a single Christian left in the Middle East!

Fallacy Of Drone Wars

The ongoing complaint about President Obama by members of the Republican party is that he is some sort of Neville Chamberlain who wants to appease evil doers. They insist he fails as a war leader because he does not want to take out the bad people. Drone attacks under the administration of President Obama are fifty times more prevalent than under the administration of our prior president, one George Bush. The real criticism of Obama is that he has gone crazy in ordering Drone attacks that have resulted in the death of thousands of bad guys –along with the deaths of thousands of innocent people. The US government has now acknowledged that a drone attack on January 15, 2015 which was directed at a military compound also led to the deaths of two hostages–Warren Weinstein and Giovanni Lo Porto. The Pakistan Foreign Ministry issued a statement: “The deaths of Weinstein and Lo Porto in a drone demonstrates the risk and unintended consequences of using this use of technology that Pakistan had been highlighting for a long time.”

Where is the evidence that killing bad guys with drones–along with a lot of innocent people–has in any way or any form resulted in the weakening of terrorist forces??? Drone attacks may result in the death of a bad guy but it also results in making other men desire to obtain revenge. The US government is now proud they have been open about admitting these deaths. Terrorism will only be defeated by another ideology that results in people leaving terrorism.

On Satire

The murder of French satirists is still on our minds. The debate is still on our minds as to what is permissible when it concerns satirists who simply are being satirists since such behavior is within their minds and blood. Australian Foreign Minister, Julia Bishop, raised some key issues concerning satire. “We see satire as an integral part of French society. Satie is controversial, it is provocative, it offense all religions,all political parties, nothing and no one is spared. It is a counter balance against power.” Well said. So, the question is: are their limits to satire and who should exercise such limits?

1. Satire if it is to continue to be satire has no limit. That is the meaning of satire.

2. If one does not like being the object of satire, then engage in a conflict of words rather than a conflict of violence.

3. The world has to encourage satirists to emerge within Muslim nations. How about a Satire Recovery Plan?

4. If the United States of America is to produce political leader such as Ted Cruz, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, John Boehner, and the rest of the clowns what else do they expect other than ridicule??

5. Then again, a night of Fox News is an experience in how a TV network is engaging in satire without knowing it is engaging in satire.

In the end we need clowns in our lives as well as sane people given that sane people are producing the most bizarre nations in the world!

P.S. I wonder if God is a satirist who created this strange world?

Baltimore Cops Suspended

Dawn breaks somewhere in America and another person is dead at the hand of our police. NO, that person was not a Muslim terrorist, he was simply a member of the police force. Finally, the deputy Police Commissioner of Baltimore has suspended six cops for the murder of Fred Gray. As deputy Police Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez put it: When Mr. Gray was put in the van, he could talk, he was upset. And, when he was taken out of the van, he could not talk, and he could not breathe. We don’t have any procedures that have an officer riding in the back of the van with a suspect.” We do know that Mr. Gray had asked the police for an asthma inhaler but none was provided.

Fox News report: Six police officers in the city of Baltimore were savagely attacked by a man who breathed on them with the intent of getting them sick. Police gallantly fought back and ended this terrorist attack.

Rush Limbaugh: Liberal do gooders will be out tomorrow picketing and complaining because Baltimore police prevented a possible Muslim terrorist attack. These brave police saved the lives of thousands of people when they subdued a man who had a knife in his pocket. However, it is still unclear if this man was a suicide bomber ready to murder all who got in his way.

Oh well, add your own version about the terrorist who needed an inhaler to breathe.

School Death, Spanish Style

There was a death in a school when a high school student, armed with a cross bow entered the school and shot a teacher with an arrow. Students huddled in their classrooms and tried to shut the door, but the boy was able to get into a few rooms and wound four of his classmates. He was finally subdued. Notice the difference between a boy armed with a crossbow and a boy armed with a rapid firing weapon which can send dozens of bullets all over the school in a few seconds. In Spain, we talk about A death, not the death of a dozen. Friends say the boy had been talking for days about his desire to murder teachers but no one paid any attention. After all, this is 2015 and students watch films in which young boys blast away with guns and murder a few dozen. We now accept as “normal,” the idea that a student openly discusses a desire to murder his teachers of fellow students.

The difference in Spain is that obtaining weapons of mass destruction is difficult. Heck, here in America it is now LEGAL to bring a gun to a college classroom in Texas. Heck, the student can carry a concealed gun and it is legal. Something has gone crazy in America since now over 50% of our people support the idea of people being able to walk around with weapons that can fire dozens of bullets. The only solution is to move to Spain and just confront the terror of a crossbow.

Oh, no report of Muslims in the area

Putin Seeks Peace With World

TIME magazine has anointed the leader of Russia with the mantle of glory by listing him as among the most important people on this planet. The old KGB thug is now a renowned and important person not only in Russia but within the entire world. The Great Leader enjoys this position of power, it enables him to be heard by one and all. Heck, within Russia, there are millions who adore a man who has restored “glory”k to the Motherland. Putin wants the world to know that his only thoughts are for peace and prosperity. He regards himself as a champion for peace. As he informed the world, “we have disagreements on several issues on the international agenda. But at the same time there is something that unites us. I mean general efforts directed at making the world economic more democratic.”

So, there, Putin has come out for democracy. How can his opponents, at least those not in jail or dead, argue that this Great Leader opposes the path of democracy? Of course, his definition of that word is somewhat different from that employed in other areas of the world. Let me explain”

The Putin definition of democracy is that when he speaks, others listen. The Putin definition of democracy is that no one opposes his ideas. Very simple, and very clear.
