The Carrot and the Stick

The more I think about it, the more I believe there is something fundamentally wrong about how we are waging war on Afghanistan. Why are we bombing the hell outta them with one hand and yet we are dropping food to them with the other? What’s up with that? We did not do this in any other war we’ve been involved in. Did we drop food on Dresden and Hamburg by day and firebomb them by night? I don’t think so…

If we feed these non-combatant folks it makes them happy to just sit there and munch instead of getting off their asses and getting rid of the regime that is starving them. That will make the job of the grunts that have to go in that much harder… Just as an aside, do you really think starving folks in Afghanistan know what peanut butter even is, much less what to do with it?

Lately on the news there has been lots of talk about what kind of “nation building” we are going to do after the war. Well, guess what! The purpose of war is to kill people and break stuff! The purpose of war is to get rid of people who threaten us… Setting up a new nation is their problem.

Let the United Nations pinheads do the “nation building”… they are no freaking good at anything else…

Happy New Year and more…

Happy New Year!

It’s Now Year 5762! Happy New Year!

I’m not Jewish but I think I’ll start counting years like this… makes me feel younger than my 39 years. which means I was born in 5723. From 5723 to 5762 seems like a lot smaller amount that from 1962 to 2001. I like that!

Not that I mind getting old, but this is the prime time to be alive! So many exciting things, both good and bad are happening. Or as George Carlin might say: “We are in for a great deal of ENTERTAINMENT!” This from a guy who is looking for a Richter scale 25 earthquake, just for the entertainment value, or at least that’s what George said to Art Bell a few years ago.

George Carlin is great and most times hits the nail square on the head!

Cold Blood Anyone?

If we don’t get a little cold blood to show the American People and soon, folks are gonna get a little pissy. News-heads are telling us “the war” may last three to five years. Is our attention span anywhere that long? Doubt it…
