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.

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.

So, ends Middle East 101 for Dummies

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.

Death Of Rohingyas

Like many people who believe that social justice is needed for people all over the world, I was thrilled when social justice activists in Myanmar(Burma) fought against the military government which has stifled freedom in that land for over thirty years. It took time, it required leadership, and finally the beginning of freedom of speech and press is having a new birth in Burma. So, what has happened to this movement which argued that people had a fundamental right to be free from oppression for the political or religious rights? As all too often, those who begin the fight to end oppression, wind up in one way or another in imposing a new form of oppression on a different group.

The nation of Burma is mainly composed of those who are Buddhists. The government is run by Buddhists as well as the armed forces. During the past few years, the new government which promised a new era of democracy has launched one violent attack after another that is directed towards a Muslim minority known as the Rohingya. At least 100,000 are now in refugee camps after losing their property to mobs of Buddhists, and hundreds are dead as well as dozens of women being raped. I do not understand how people can struggle to create a democratic society and then turn around and become the oppressor? Latest stories indicate these refugees are now fleeing to Indonesia and Malaysia. Such are the fruits of democracy.

Let’s Solve The Syria Problem

We offer some possible solutions to the problem in Syria of ongoing mass killing.

1. Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin will face off in a wrestling match to decide the fate of Syria.

2. How about a Shoot Out at high noon between all rival armed forces. The last one standing takes over Syria.

3. President Assad gets the winning ticket to Mega Millions and an all paid vacation in Disneyland.

4. A shoot out between the best marksman in ISIS and the Syrian army. Winner takes all.

5. Evacuate all civilians and allow Israel to drop some of its atomic bombs on the entire country. Bibi would be delighted.

6. Send in the IDF, heck, they can heat Hamas in Gaza, why not beat all the bad people in Syria?

7. Is there a way to begin fracking in Syria and cause some earthquakes?

So, maybe you have some better ideas??

Of course, we could always send in General Ted Cruz and General Marco Rubio to clean up the mess.

View From Tehran

The Republican party and quite a few Democrats are allied in opposition to the attempt to forge a negotiated resolution of Iran’s plans with nuclear energy. There is something ironic about the fact those who oppose the interim agreement with Iran within Iran come across with the same arguments being advanced in the US Senate. Shervin Ahmadi reporting from Tehran outlined what is happening in Iran. “Contrary to expectations, the interim agreement did not result in any euphoria among Iran’s leaders though they displayed guarded satisfaction. In the end, only the most hardline elements of the regime, those close to former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, expressed opposition.” On the other hand six famous movie directors expressed the view held by many young people, “There is no deal worse than no deal.”

Reality, “the economic situation is very difficult, Iranians are crushed by continual price rises and dissent is growing.” So, let me get this clear: those in the US Senate who oppose the interim agreement are in league with former President Ahmadinejad who was the one speaking about destroying Israel! I assume birds of a feather gather together.

King Salman Is No Solomon!

Once upon a time there was a king who lived in the desert. Frankly, no one paid any attention to this royal figure whose main wealth lay in the vast expanse of desert. If you wanted to cross the desert which he claimed to own, then you had to pay for the right to get thirsty in HIS desert. Well, one day some stranger found something under the sand, and by golly, it was black and it was liquid. The King soon had thousands of strangers coming to HIS desert seeking his approval to get the black liquid which was known as –OIL — from the sand. And, by golly, this King soon became the richest man in the entire world. Suddenly, this who paid no attention to him came seeking his blessing.

Such is the tale of the house of Saud. Today, there is a new King Saud who rules Saudi Arabia. He is very angry at the USA because it is talking with clerics from the Shiite muslims in Iran. King Salman is guardian of Mecca and expects one and all to bow before him and seek his blessing. The Shiites in Iran don’t give a damn for his oil or his heretic brand of the Muslim religion. So, King Salman is angry and is blasting away at renegade Shiite Muslims in Yemen. His approach is rather unusual. His planes just drop bombs and whoever dies, dies. A King of Saudi Arabia is raised to believe that his word is law ands anyone who opposes him gets some lashes, if they are lucky. King Salman will not talk with President Obama until he agrees with how to solve problems in the Middle East. For some reason, President Obama does not believe bombing civilians will solve any problem. So, King Saud refused to come to the Obama party at Camp David.

Jeb On Iraq

Jeb Bush wants one and all to know that he is proud of his brother, his father, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and all the others who gave us the Iraq war. OK, he does admit there were a few mistakes which should give assurance to those who lost sons, daughters, brothers, and parents in this war without end. “I would have authorized an invasion and so would Hillary Clinton. And so would just about everybody that was confronted by the intelligence they got.” There definitely, according to Jeb, were those few mistakes. “By the way, guess who thinks those mistakes gook place as well? George W.Bush.” I am so glad that George finally admitted those mistakes.

Of course, just about every political expert on the Middle East did NOT agree with those “intelligent agencies.” Anyone who had studied anything about the Middle East understood that Iran was confronted by two enemies, Afghanistan and Iraq. And, guess who got rid of the enemies of Iran? George W. Bush. Let us assume for a moment that Bush was right and Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. That would mean he had missiles. Not even the Bush crowd claimed those missiles could travel more than 500 miles. So, how could they threaten the US– if they actually existed?

George Bush authorized an invasion without any plan of what would happen after victory. George, please check the multitude of plans during WW II that detailed how an occupation would be carried out.

Jeb just proved that he is a true Bush!

What’s New In Republican Politics?

In order to speed up the process of this primary season which will last for over a year before we begin the event known as an election, we thought if might be interesting to offer a preview of what Republicans will be discussing during the coming months

1. Hillary Clinton is a closet lesbian. But, don’t get us wrong, some of our best friends are lesbians.

2. Bill Clinton is the secret lover of George Clooney.

3. At this very moment a giant tunnel is being constructed under the Pacific Ocean to transport Chinese soldiers in their invasion of America.

4. ISIS is behind the government of Iran.

5. Lower taxes, reduce the money coming into the government and raise military expenditures by $150 billion.

6. If elected, Senator Rand Paul will personally lead American troops into battle in Iran. His chief of staff will be Liam Neeson.

7. We need to repeal Obamacare and provide health insurance to those without. Just be patient, we will soon explain our plan.

8. Once Republicans are in control of the federal government the drought will end in California.

9. Unleash Wall Street and economic prosperity will rise for those earning $7.25 an hour, their wages will rise dramatically to $7.75 cents an hour.

10. Jesus will finally return knowing he will be greeted by the Koch brothers.

Republican Tough Guys!

These days listening to Republicans boast about their desire for war against evil Iran, one wonders why it is that so many of these tough guys have never served in the US Army? Marco Rubio, who would not know the front end of a bazooka, quoted the words of “General: Liam Neeson, who is a movie actor and has never fired a single shot against anyone other than a blank bullet aimed at another actor. Marco the Brave wants t he world to know that when it comes to Iran, “we will find you,and we will kill you!” Wow, those are strong words of bravery. According to Scott Walker, “we need a commander-in-chief who will call it what it is, and that is radical extremism. We need a president who will affirm that Israel is an ally and start acting like it.”

OK, so here is the Obama record:

1. President Obama provided Israel with its Dome program that destroys at least 90% of missiles aimed at Israel.

2. Under the Obama administration the state of Israel with its seven million people receives more military aid than any other nation in the world!

3. President Obama authorized the dispatch of an additional TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND MARINES TO AFGHANISTAN

Marco, Liam Neeson is an actor. He has absolutely not experience fighting real people. If you really want to get ISIS, just join the US army or go to Iraq and join their army and actually FIGHT BAD GUYS!
