Who Dares Wins

Let me start by saying that I don't believe in interventionist foreign policy, specifically when it comes to military force. I think that it is seldom in our best interest to devote our military forces to the internal issues of another nation. We also do not live in a political or historical vacuum so lets not get all testy and think that this opinion applies to every situation with the same vigor.

There, that being said I think it's about time to see a great big tattoo in the shape of a flaming sword where Tehran used to be. Turn the SAS loose and see who walks back out.

I'm not sure what's going on in the halls of the British leadership but if 15 of their sailors really were within Iraqi waters when they were taken hostage by the Iranians, then it's time to turn
Ahmadinejad's house into a pile of pink fucking gravel. Maybe this is why I'm not a world leader but I think somebody needs to pull a good old-fashioned mafia style Kadafi compound move. We haven't heard much from that little prick since we liquidated some of his family for him.

Don't go over and live there and try to change people. Just show up, administer a swift, sharp, bloody spanking, grab the hostages, leave a flower on the pillow and get the fuck back out.

If I ruled the world (ho ho ho), then this kind of shit would come with a three word answer; 'Carpet Fucking Bomb' assholes, ok.

But the Brits don't listen to me very often; at least not when it comes to war and dental hygiene.

Here's the story as I see it.

-Wednesday the 21st Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threatens to engage in illegal nuclear action if sanctions are passed. "If they want to treat us with threats and enforcement of coercion and violence, undoubtedly they must know that the Iranian nation and authorities will use all their capacities to strike enemies that attack."

-Friday the 23rd Iran announces Ahmadinejad canceled trip to speak before the UN Security Council

-Saturday the 24th the UN security council imposes new sanctions on Iran after they again refused to suspend their nuclear enrichment program. Member nations including Britain

-Ahmadinejad is quoted saying that people "seeking to impose sanctions against Iran will suffer a greater damage themselves"

-Wednesday the 28th Iranian soldiers enter Iraqi waters and forcibly kidnap 15 British sailors

-Iranian officials initially report the location of the British soldiers as in Iraqi waters when they were captured, then released a new and different location after British officials pointed that fact out to them

Anyone who doesn't think this action was deliberate and premeditated on the part of the Iranian leadership should contact me regarding some beneficial real estate arrangements I have to offer.

One third of Washington DC residents are illiterate

A recent study by the State Education Agency, a semi Marxist 'educational' group has determined that 170,000 people in the District of Columbia are functionally Illiterate.

I just can't figure out the math...

- 435 Congressmen
- 100 Senators
- 12 Supreme Court Justices
- 1 President
- 3000 Senate Staffers*
- 5220 Congressional Staffers*
- 400 White House Staffers *
- 16 Cabinet Rank Members
65,099 DC Public School Students

That leaves 95,717 people which must account for employees of cabinet offices and their respective idiotic departmental wastes of money; Also the DC based IRS employees.

I wonder if anyone is surprised to find that DC is chalk full of Illiterate morons... I know I'm not. We elected most of the higher ranking ones.

Guilty Pleasure

I have to admit it... I have a little bit of a crush on Camille Paglia. I know she's a left wing academic which should illicit thoughts of Hitleresque German schiza style pornography; but she just knows how to say the things that make me a little mushy.

Like her recent comments about Hillary...

"Her aping of a black Southern accent from the pulpit was so inept and patronizing that it should get a Razzie Award for Worst Performance of the Year. At times, it approached the Southern Gothic burlesque of Bette Davis chewing up the scenery in "Hush ... Hush, Sweet Charlotte." Does Hillary Clinton have a stable or coherent sense of self? Or is everything factitious, mimed and scripted (like her flipping butch and femme masks) for expediency?"

"All that Sunday, network radio news, for example, betrayed its liberal bias by running clips of only her noblest phrases. Heaven help any Republican who had made so lurid a gaffe! Fortunately, alternative media now exist: On his radio show that night, Matt Drudge ran huge, hilarious swatches of prophesyin' Hillary camping it up."

We must all remind ourselves that Camille is an outspoken Dem.

Also she had this to say about W.

"I've always felt that liberals' hatred of Bush is misplaced. I feel pity for him -- he is a genuinely tragic figure who made the wrong choices and destroyed the promise of his presidency. His sense of divine election and destiny, a defense mechanism that allows him to survive that crushing job, is of course positively dangerous for the country. At this point, it seems Bush's persona will never mature in office. As he blustered with dangling arms and stiff cowboy legs to the podium during last week's South American junket, I felt embarrassed at his lack of diplomatic courtesy and simple savoir faire."

But perhaps the most romantic thing she's said to me this month...

"This kind of outreach to expose and remedy injustice represents the finest spirit of leftism, a practical, compassionate activism -- not the pretentious postmodernist jargon and sanctimonious attitudinizing that still pass for leftism among too many college faculty. Capitalism, which spawned modern individualism as well as the emancipated woman who can support herself, is essentially Darwinian. It expands any society's sum total of wealth and radically raises the standard of living, but it leaves the poor and weak without a safety net. Capitalism needs the ethical counter-voice of leftism to keep it honest. But leftists must be honest in turn about what we owe to capitalism -- without which Western women would have no professional jobs to go to but would be stuck doing laundry by hand and stooping over pots on the hearth fire all day long."
