The ISIS Overreaction. No strategy may be part of the strategy. A new rant from the FILTHY PUNDIT(He ought to have his mouth washed out with soap) Politics, way over the %$#@ing top!………………..

Do something! Why doesn’t Obama have a strategy? Just go bomb ISIS back to the stone-a…okay, pre-stone-age. I am not an Obama apologist, and I advocate a robust reaction to ISIS, but people, PLEEAASSEE! The just-do-something syndrome is as dangerous in this instance as the don’t-do-nothing paralysis. For all of the experts who either can compel us that war is never the answer and we should just ignore ISIS like a petulant child until they realize their erroneous ways to the war pornographers who want to ride, or ride someone’s kid over the hill in some Yee-ha, cheap beer swillin,’ flag waving sporting event, where are the real questions for all these self-infatuated experts? Jumping in with both feet on this one just cuz ya gotta have a strategy to satisfy most people in this country who would struggle to find Syria on a map, let alone bomb it is dangerous.

But FOX and the Republicans are hysterical over Muslims, Muslims, Muslims everywhere! So we jump in hard. Does that become a giant lightening rod for Jihadists, a tipping point for moderates, a call to arms out of sympathy? And then what? A bombing campaign must be backed up with a longer term strategy on the ground and internationally. What does the US-led bombing of Sunnis in Iraq mean for the ethnic divisions strained to the breaking point in Iraq? Those opposing ISIS on the ground are fractured, factionalized and often beleaguered.

ISIS has drawn thousands to their ranks amid porous borders that would make the Mexican/American border look like the Berlin Wall by comparison. What happens to those people? Who polices them up? Who restores order without turning genocidal or vengeful against otherwise peaceful and victimized Sunnis caught in the middle of the Sunni fanatics of ISIS? What is they scatter and export violence in an ill-conceived war? What stabilizes the region in the longer term that prevents this from flaring again? Because those answers are difficult doesn’t mean we do nothing, by the way.

As for Syria, Assad is not suddenly our pal, but there is a semblance of stability across extremist Sunni and Shia lines, but there is also legitimacy to the original rebellion which was co-opted, and from which sprang this extremism. Here’s the deal. The world isn’t a cartoon. It is complex, which is not a call for inaction, but rather caution, planning, perspective and wisdom. After the major fuck ups of foreign policy the past 40 years by this country, we ought to be wise as old owls! If you absolutely have to stick something into the wall socket, you’d better damn well turn off the breakers feeding the current, or at the very least make sure you are grounded. Jamming something in the wall, otherwise, will likely bring a world of unexpected surprises…and none of them are good.

Revolution and Beer Unrestrained: Do not read if you are overly sensitive, easily offended or stupid. A no punches pulled commentary on the worst day since the Gaza genocide began ….. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………… dear Liberals, Progressives, Anarchists, Socialists and anyone else astounded, horrified and enraged by today’s events in Gaza, if you think that Netanyahu and his neo-Nazi cabal of fucking genocidal scum give a fuck about your protests or die-ins you are sadly mistaken. If you think appeals for humanity, mercy and restraint will accomplish dick, the American media and government are fully aligned to cover their ass closer than a lifer to a short-eyes in a prison cell. (Look it up, it’s funny.) The reality is, the Israelis bombing the shit out of Gaza at the core think of the Palestinians as their own personal niggers, and when the niggers get uppity the plantation owners will bring the hammer down. Truth is what you want? Fuck you! You gave that shit away when you legitimized the democrats, paid any attention to the ass-clowns in the corporate media-including MSNBC- and every time you feel sorry for the race raping fucking bigots on the Right. 90% of that media is nothing more than the taint for parent corporations supplying the bombs and tech that is murdering Palestinians; two fucking thousand at this point! And the republicans, who suck the dick of that big business sell your religious idiocy back to you into this guilt-laden bible prophecy mind fuck control shit. It’s a sin to criticize Israel cuz then your a Jew hating heretic, and we all know Israel is the 51st fucking state of the United God-damned States of America. Hell, Israel dick suckers like Joe Walsh, Rush Limbaugh and Ted fucking Cruz have more loyalty to fucking Israel to the United States. Even with the haphazard, couldn’t hit a fucking barn Hamas rockets, life in Israel is better than it is here. They don’t have fucking homeless or poverty anything like we have here, because we supply billions to their genocidal fucking military, and because all their homeless and impoverished they keep penned up in the Gaza strip where they can use them as slave fucking niggers to shovel their shit or as target practice. Hey, their just fucking Muslims, and who gives a fuck about Muslims. Their rat fucking little kids are born just to kill Jews and be terrorists, so fuck them too. Right? An Israeli shell hit a school today, and then during what was supposed to be a ceasefire hammered a market killing 17 people buying fucking bread and goddamned humus, but all fucking Israel has to say is that Hamas had a slingshot or a condom full of piss to fling at Israeli tanks and jets and you’ll say, its Hamas’ fault, just like our dick sucking, stand for nothing, corporate whores in the government said today. No proof, just puppets with Netanyahu’s dick up their ass. Fuck Israel, fuck Obama and fuck this government for not actually standing on the rights of people but being fucking evil. And fuck them for making me use the word evil, because I hate that fucking word. Take a page from Evo Morales and declare the Israeli government a terrorist regime presiding over a genocide and hunt down those motherfuckers and throw them in the fucking Hague!!!…..Wow, that was cathartic!
