NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

It is Monday, someone got shot in Texas, so what is new?

I await a day that does not begin with news of another person deciding to run for the Republican nomination for president.

American politics has shifted from comedy to farce.

I wonder if there was ever a day in the history of this planet when some life form did not die due to violence?

Some are born to die, some to live.

I have a hunch that Jesus just won’t return until guaranteed he will not be shot.

How about resurrecting the body of Ronald Reagan and having it run for president?

Ramada And ISIS

Two months ago there were signs of an active attempt on the part of the government of Iraq to organize a successful fight against ISIS. For the moment it appeared as though leaders in Baghdad were ready to forget about sectarian concerns and seek to unite the nation against a foreign body that had entered. In order to be successful against ISIS it would have required the Shiite government in the capital to reach out to the 30% of Iraq citizens who are Sunni and seek a united front. This would require arming Sunni groups and offering them an important role in government. Alas, this never happened. It would have required the United States to cease opposing soldiers from Iran to play a role in the fight against ISIS. So, to no one’s surprise, the so called “fight against ISIS” has halted.

Instead of moving forward, the Iraq army is moving backwards. Units friendly to Iran have been kept out of the fight which has allowed ISIS to once again become successful. Sorry Barack, the Iraq government needs any and all soldiers ready to fight ISIS. It is time to unite with Iran and destroy the main enemy–ISIS!

Does President Obama have any logical foreign policy for the Middle East??

I think Jeb bush should divorce his brother if he wants to win an election.

I do not believe a single Republican candidate ever served in the armed forces, but they sure want to be a general.

Always take a deep breath before sending someone off to die.

I have mixed feelings about the death penalty.

There sure is a heck of water on this planet but God sure made a boo boo in making so little of it drinkable.

I never did see the reason to have a beautiful lawn, then again, I was raised on the streets of New York.

I doubt that God would take a vacation on this planet.

The Trouble In Africa

There is one idea which is ignored by those commenting about the lack of democracy within Africa, and that is the possibility that Africans at this stage of historical development do not desire the ideas of democracy. Robert Mugabe has been head man of Zimbabwe since 1980 and he desires for one more term in order to bring prosperity to his nation. After all, how can anyone develop a vibrant democratic society in only 35 years? President Pierre Nujkvunzizi was overthrown in a coup in Burundi only to stage a coup against General Niyombare who overthrew him. There are times in African politics when the game of democracy is somewhat like a game of musical chairs. What is wrong with Africa?

1. The continent has failed to bring forth leaders such as Nelson Mandela.

2. The few democratic leaders who were able to gain power failed to mentor the next generation of leaders.

3. Corruption has become the norm, not the exception in virtually all African nations.

4. Perhaps, the basic issue is failure to create nations that bound people into one society.

It is also time to quit blaming ‘IMPERIALISM” for the failures of modern African societies.

Africa needs leaders who will end corruption and share the wealth with the masses of people.

ISIS In Ramadi

I am so happy that the US army is training about five thousand “moderates” to confront the armed forces of ISIS. There is a theory within the USA that the best way to fight ISIS is to create a moderate group of Muslims who will desire to charge into battle because they believe in moderation. The factor that makes ISIS so threatening is that its forces are stimulated by the power of hate, violence, religion,and conquest. For some reason those in the West have lost their desire to fight and believe that sending men into battle who do not believe with fervor the cause for which they fight will somehow, in someway lead to victory. The only enemy of ISIS who will defeat this group of terrorists is another group of terrorists who are driven by a love for democracy. You know, the same attitude that permeated British and Americans who fought in World War II.

The training program for “moderates” doesn’t even have a moderate chance for success. Muslims who are driven, who want with fervor, democracy, are the only ones who will defeat the forces of terror. Of course, the problem is lack of charismatic leaders in the Muslim world who seek democracy and modernism. Find those people and ISIS will be defeated.

Bushes In Your Life

Wee are now entering thirty years of Bush folks somewhere near or around the White House. So, to understand the Bush clan:

1. A Bush holding your hand means the other one might hold a knife.

2. Together the Bush dynasty has led to three wars for America.

3. I believe the behavior of the Bush clan is bush league.

4. When a Bush lights a fire it can become a firefight.

5. Few Bushes grow up to be giant trees in the forest.

6. Plant a bush on your lawn and it will transform into a fungus that devours your sons and daughters.

I believe it is time to replace our bushes with flowering plants of beauty.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Canada, Toronto Star: “Sex Ed Protests”

For hands-on education, I hope.

UK, Guardian: “Moronic Immigration”

I guess seeking food is a form of being a moron.

France, Connexion: “17 Rare Monkeys Stolen”

Don’t worry, you can readily find them in the US Congress.

Sweden, Local: “Missing Girl Found”

I guess she is now not missing.

Middle East 101 For Dummies

marco Rubio and Rand Paul have suddenly become experts about Middle Eastern foreign policy. Both men have emerged as the leading experts on policy in this area of the world. Both men are determined the only solution in dealing with problems is to “send in the troops.” They demand action, and are tired of the inept policy of President Obama who refused to take strong military action, right now. Frankly, I doubt if either one of these two brave men who have never served their nation in the military have the slightest knowledge of what is happening in Iraq or Yemen.

1. Both demand confronting the “Iran-backed” Houthi in Yemen. Actually, the Houthi have two enemies in Yemen. One was the government which they drove from power. However, their main enemy is -AL QAEDA! I doubt if Rand or Marco even knows the group they want to take out is leading the fight against al Qaeda which both hate.

2. Actually, the Houthi initially were NOT backed by Iran, it was only AFTER the Houthi demonstrated success that Iran offered support. So, how come the US did not offer support?

3. Rand and Marco are the great friends of Israel. I hate to inform them but Israel is one of the problems in the area. Its failure to work with Palestinian leaders and create a modern Palestinian state is A cause of problems, not THE cause.

4. I hate to inform Marco and Rand that use of force was the MAIN problem of the Bush administration. It was GEORGE BUSH whose use of force created ISIS.

It is time for being calm and focus on economic development and provide young people in the region a reason to support Western powers. Above all, it is necessary to allow the emergence of Muslim moderate leaders if we desire peace in the region.

Republicans believe in myths, the rest of us believe in reality.

Ted Cruz who opposes special treatment for Hispanics, termed himself, Hispanic, on the entry form to Harvard.

In discussing the Middle East, one wonders, where have all the good guys gone?

I suspect, “gone to graveyards, everyone.”

These days, hard to differentiate between, Jeb and George.

I wonder if we will enjoy a post Fox News era?

These days, I so miss Sarah Palin. At least she was funny stupid.

Four years ago, Herman Cain, today, Ben Carson, the necessary black dumbbell.

Iraq Myths

Once upon a time there was a great American president who sent soldiers into battle, and defeated the bad people. He did all the right things, bombing and shooting and before anyone knew what had happened all the bad people were gone. Unfortunately, this great man was soon replaced by a black dude from Africa who refused to follow the ideas of the great American president, and before anyone knew what had happened, all the bad people had returned to power. Jeb Bush was at a town hall meeting in Las Vegas when 19 year old Ivy Ziedrich, made the comment, “your brother created ISIS.” She went on to note that he was “spouting nationalist rhetoric.” Well, mam, those are fighting words to a real man of the West.

According to Jeb, “when we left Iraq, security had been arranged, al-Qaeda had been taken out.” Really.

1. It was President George Bush who appointed Prime Minister to the position of leadership.

2. It was Maliki who turned on Sunni leaders and made them turn toward terrorism.

3. Prior to 2001 the group known as “al-Qaeda, at best, had about one thousand followers.

4. By the time Iraq had been at war for three years, al-Qaeda had, at least, ten thousand followers.

IT WAS GEORGE BUSH WHO WIPED OUT THE TWO LEADING ENEMIES OF IRAN– AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ!

P.S. When US troops entered Iraq there were 800,000 Christians living in peace. When George Bush left office, half the Christian population had fled Iraq.

IRAQ WAS NEVER STABLE.

Another Fox News myth.
