Why ISIS Wins?

Latest figures indicate that during the past two years nearly 30,000 new recruits have entered Syria and Iraq to assist ISIS in its goal of creating a Muslim society in those countries. The US military just spent FIVE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS to train Syrian soldiers to fight ISIS or any other bad group opposed to President Assad. The end result was NINETY SOLDIERS who fled at the first sign of the enemy. I believe we now have five men ready to fight. So, what went wrong for us and right for ISIS?

1. ISIS establishes law and order in a city. After fifteen years of terror and chaos most just want some law and order in their lives.

2. ISIS ends all corruption. If you own a business, no more paying out to terror groups.

3. ISIS restores basic services like electricity.

4. ISIS establishes schools for children. OK, they just study the Koran, but they are in a school

5. ISIS restores traditional roles for women–cook, clean and have sex with your hubby.

6. ISIS emphasizes they are Muslims.

In other words, ISIS establishes some form of normality for people.

And, best of all, ISIS is composed of fellow Muslims, not those associated with Western forces.

IN other words, ISIS soldiers are fighting for their beliefs,not for money!

Why We Failed In Iraq

Every Republican candidate for President yells the same mantra–Obama refused to leave American soldiers and once they are president there will be more boots on the ground. Not a single one has the faintest idea why a decade after Saddam Hussein was defeated and then executed, there is nothing but chaos in Iraq. So, what went wrong?

1. The Americans disbanded the Iraq Army and allowed one million men to head home with arms. Nothing was done to work with Iraq officers to establish law and order. If there was one thing those dudes understood was how to impose law and order.

2. At the time of 9/11 Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda, at best,numbered about 2,000. The US invasion opened opportunities for al-Qaeda to recruit thousands of followers determined to drive out the infidels. Guess who were the “infidels?”

3. Since day one of the end of Saddam, one corrupt group of Iraq leaders after another group of corrupt leaders has been in charge of Iraq

4. Actually, Joe Biden at the time uttered some common sense– establish a federal concept in which Sunni Iraqis had their own state. This would have destroyed al-Qaeda.

5. Bush folk pushed for installation of Prime Minister Maliki whose goal was to crush Sunnis and allow his pals to get rich while running Iraq.


Yes, Carly,we need more boots on the ground.

Why We Failed In Afghanistan

Well,the city of Kunduz has fallen to the Taliban, and things are back to normal in Afghanistan. It is now fifteen years since US troops along with members of the Northern Alliance swept through Afghanistan and sent Taliban forces fleeing for their lives. American leaders breathed a sigh of relief that vengeance had now been achieved for the infamous 9/11 attack. We had WON. We had beaten the bBAD GUYS and now peace and prosperity would return to Afghanistan. Hurrah!

Fifteen years have passed and now the DEFEATED TALIBAN are back in control of a major city. I have no doubt they will be driven from the city only to find another city to capture. So, why are they so successful and why are Afghan soldiers not?

1. The Taliban impose honesty in a village.

2. The Taliban end corruption in a village.

3. The Taliban are NOT connected to any Western forces.

4. The Taliban play to historic prejudices against equality of women.

5. The Taliban promise respect for the Muslim religion.

6. Taliban soldiers BELIEVE IN SOMETHING.

More Troops On The Ground?

The ongoing mantra of Republican candidates is the need for “more boots on the ground.” If we just send a few thousand American soldiers the war against ISIS will be over within a few months. As I recall, that was the promise of George Bush, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld who assured the American people we would be welcomed by joyous crowds. Latest figures indicate that during the past three years at least 30,000 new recruits have joined ISIS. Send in our boys and we can double that numbers.

There is a city in Afghanistan named Kundiz. It was attacked by Taliban forces numbering less than a thousand soldiers. Inside the city were over FIVE THOUSAND AFGHAN SOLDIERS. The Taliban took the city and the soldiers are now on a mountain top protecting an air base. After all, planes can fly them quickly away from actual fighting.There are plenty of boots on the ground, but few contain the feet of soldiers who want to fight for their country.

Vladimir On Center Stage

There is only one place that makes Vladimir Putin feel comfortable or welcome,and that is center stage on the world. He went to the United Nations and actually,not only talked with President Obama, but shook his hand. Putin is ready for action, whether it be attacking gays and lesbians in Russia or attacking ISIS in Syria. Of course, the great Russian army has yet to actually take the stage in fighting people since the 1990s when it bombed to hell ‘terrorists’ in Chechnya. Since then it has handled gays and lesbians with firmly, as well as women who sing songs that Vladimir does not like.

Anyway, there are now Russian planes in Syria,and Vladimir is ready to have his ‘advisors’ empower Syrian soldiers to bomb the hell out of Syrian towns, kill some thousands of civilians, and somehow, end the war in Syria. At this point in time,Obama is ready to welcome just about anyone to fight against ISIS. Has he considered:

1. Ted Cruz might lead fervent Christians into battle for the Lord.

2. Or, Scott Walker now has time to actually fight someone who can shoot back. After all,he handled unions with great talent.

Just imagine, Ted Cruz and Vladimir Putin leading Christians into battle for the Lord!

Rouhani On Republicans

Iran President Hassan Rouhani sits in Tehran with a smile on his face as Republican after Republican boasts of their desire to bomb the hell out of Iran and bring peace and prosperity to the Middle East. “Sometimes, when I have time, some of the Republican debate was broadcast live and I would watch it, some of it was laughable. It was very strange, the things that they spoke of. Some of them wouldn’t even know where Tehran was in relation to Iran. Some of them didn’t even know where Iran was geographically.”

Such observations on the political situation in the Middle East are unfair to Republicans. Heck, some of them do not even know the President of the United States was born in that country. The real ignorance among Republicans is:

1. None of them knows that the CIA working with the British MI6 destroyed democracy in August, 1953 by overthrowing Prime Minister Mossadegh and allowing the Shah to gain power. This played out in the 1970s when the Shah was overthrown and clerics seized power.

Never expect any Republican to know anything about Middle Eastern history.

Carly Is A Tough Woman

Each person who seeks the presidency must initially present a persona,an image that would resonate with people,and in some way or other present themselves as a tough guy-or gal–who is ready to meet the bad guy at the OK Corral and shoot it out. Carly Fiorina is determined to take on terrorist groups such as Planned Parenthood and let them know when the sheriff is in town, they had better head on out. Carly is not afraid to stand up to an organization that has been around most of the twentieth century without causing much fuss.

But, these are new times and we need tough sheriffs to save us from terrorists. After taking care of Planned Parenthood, Carly went after the US Senate which issued a comprehensive and well documented study that proved waterboarding produced little if any meaningful information. According to Carly, the report “undermined the morale of a whole lot of people who dedicated their lives to keeping the country safe.”

Carly,the EVIDENCE concluded they did NOT keep the country safe. Carly Fiorina is a modern version of Senator Joseph McCarthy.

UN Inspections For All

As of June 1st there were six nations that refused to allow UN inspectors into its nuclear facilities. They are: China,India,Pakistan, North Korea, Iran and—-? Now that Iran has agreed to such inspections, how about the last one on this list to accept such action. Oh, the last one is the state of Israel. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continually expresses concern as to whether inspections will prevent Iran from securing atomic bombs. As of this moment, Israel is adamantly opposed to allowing UN folk into its facilities. Israel Atomic Energy Commissioner, Ze’eve Snir warned that the world must be on guard against nations such as Iran who will cheat on inspections.He also warned that Iraq, Syria and Libya had attempted to develop atomic bombs.

Well, we know that Israel has at least 70 atomic bombs and can blast into dust any and all Muslim nations in the Middle East. Now, that Iran has agreed to inspection, how about demanding that Israel join the club for peace and security?

On Yom Kippur

As a good Jewish boy I went to services at my Temple–of course, in my youth we only went to a soul, and temples were places where the Christians went to pray. As the hours went by, I read page after page about the evil deeds committed against Jews throughout the ages. I read words urging God to take care of those who did evil to Jews.For some reason,God was not implored to take action against those who persecute Muslims or Hispanics or minority groups throughout the world. Just punish those who did evil to Jews.

Let me make clear that few groups of humans can match the hatred aimed at Jews throughout the past two thousand years. Jews certainly should win the hate-persecution-murder trophy. But, I found myself feeling uneasy as the reading continued, I wondered: is God only supposed to destroy those who murder Jews or does the Big Guy up in the sky save some of the revenge for those who murder and rape innocent people who are not Jews? Based on the reading, God sure is not an equal opportunity revenge sheriff.

So God, save some of your anger for those in the Middle East who murder and rape, nonstop. Then again, please God wipe out any and all murderers regardless of where they are in the world or whatever is their religion.

Pope Francis, Enemy Of GOP

There is something ironic about Republican Catholics who rush to judgment about the Muslim religion, and are compelled, due to their ideology to rush to judgment about the Catholic religion. Suddenly, this nice conservative religion has become a part of the plot to destroy America and allow the shiftless and lazy to take away money from our wonderful job creators. Overtime Pope Francis urges support for the poor, Catholic Republicans recede in horror from this man who pretends to know something about poverty or the needs of those without.

He really got to Republicans yesterday in Washington when he came out for fighting the evil of climate change and praised the efforts of that notorious hater of job creators-Barack Obama. “It was encouraging that you are providing an initiative for reducing air pollution.” For some reason fighting for clean air has become an attack on the American way of life.

Oh, I forgot, Pope Francis is no scientist, actually, he is one. At least one idiot Texas congressman will be boycotting the Pope’s speech today.
