Get set for the coming Blitz of Baghdad.
“Analysts at the U.S.-based think tank the Institute for the Study of War, who have been plotting the locations and types of attacks in the recent flurry of blasts buffeting the Iraqi capital, have noted a clear pattern developing. They say it suggests the Islamic State is building up to something big and is no longer just focused on consolidating its grip and developing governance in the lands it now controls.” President Obama’s call on Israel to stop fighting in Gaza is going to look like a drunk pissing in a four alarm fire. Consider Libya. Remember Libya, the place Samantha Power wanted to protect? Tripoli is literally ablaze. ” A huge fuel depot in Libya’s capital burned out of control on Monday, set ablaze in fighting between rival militias that has driven the country to chaos three years after the NATO-backed revolt that toppled Muammar Gaddafi … ignited by a missile strike that hit millions of liters of fuel.” Nearly all the foreign embassies are already gone. The place is burning out — literally. And that’s just for openers.

Your Say

The last war we won was on two fronts, European and Pacific. We didn't much care for world opinion although most of the world wanted us to step in. We didn't care about collateral damage. We didn't care about offending the sensibilities of our enemies.

We cared about winning and not spending many American lives in doing it. Unfortunately our military has been gutted or we could drop a couple small yield nukes on Baghdad and a few other centers and face down the rest of the world with "I am tired of fooling around, he said. As for the rights of anyone, tell your people they can go fuck themselves. The Colonel by Carolyn Forche.
I really like that quote: lucid, succinct, says what I want to say but better than I can.

I celebrate the wars in that region. In fact, the more they battle each other the better for us. We should use our influence, such as it is, to whisper in their ears "those guys over there said your klan has ugly goats." There is nothing in the culture worth keeping and the more of them that face extinction the more they may reevaluate their satanic moon-worshipping death cult. If not, we can hope that the last 2 Muslims kill each other in a murder-suicide plot. They don't care about their lives or their future, neither should you.

Any religion based on a clown riding a flying horse from Mecca to Jerusalem because the missed the last bus deserves to wage a war upon itself to the end.

Shoot the last person standing.
