Rejection of Reality

Rational response to terrorism necessarily includes giving serious consideration to the fact that *our* actions as the biggest imperial military power on Earth have a massive influence on the *desire* of wackaloon nutjobs to blow themselves to smithereens while taking out one of our civilian aircraft. Of course, this consideration is absolute taboo in our depraved and toxic political culture because ARE YOU SAYING AMERKUH *DESERVES* TO BE ATTACKED??!?!?!?!!111!!!1!!!!???!!?!?!???
TREASON!!1!!1!!TRAIOTR!!!1!!!ELEVNTYY!!111!!!
USAQ!USA!USA!USA!

    Facing the loss of St. Ronnie would be a far worse fate than random wackaloons. It would require a frank admission that one’s own shit does stink.

    Much better that we perpetuate the insanity with periodic escalations.

    What do you think- 95% of people in this country are delusional? 98%?

    Yep. What’s amazing is that this is all fairly new, in the grand scheme of things. There was no international islamic movement of wackjob fucktards thirty years ago. The US didn’t create Israel (contrary to what most of these wackjobs think), and we were a fairly normal (in a fucked up cold war kind of way) player in politics until the early 1970s. Since then, we’ve never seen a dead AAAARAB we weren’t proud of sticking on the end of a pole. And, our Christian Missions (festered by fucktards like Dick Warren) in places like Nigeria, Indonesia, and the Philippines have resulted in serious genocide against non-Christians, and it is no surprise that this condom yahoo hails from Nigeria. Thanks to all the gods for gay Dutch film directors, eh? Ain’t no Jesus Freak who’s gonna pull a burning condom from in between a black guys legs…..

    Right on Candid Engineer.
    Personally, I think it best if we continue to wander along in our post-literate world of ruinous drivel and crap-for-reality. Trying to get back the good old days of gigantic Dodge automobiles running on stolen petroleum products seems to be what keeps 80 or 90 percent of Americans getting up in the morning…

    Ok, so we’ve now come to this realization? Now what the fuck are we, your average citizen, supposed to do about it?

    Thomas Joseph, organize marches on the Pentagon, as in the old days? Oh wait, you need to have a draft army for that kind of indignation, yes?

    Didn’t anybody learn anything from Richard Nixon?

    Here it is:

    Re-institute the draft; ALL overseas adventures will henceforth require 100% military conscription for every able-bodied person, up to the current age-limit (which I believe is 42?), no deferments except for pregnancy (major baby-boom will be an unfortunate but temporary side effect), medical personnel and EMTs, cops, fire-fighters and a few other occupations. NO DEFERMENTS FOR COLLEGE and certainly, NO DEFERMENTS for intellectual jobs. In fact, if I may sound like Chairman Mao for a moment, I’d ship all the neocon book editors out to Afghanistan FIRST.

    One thing the American people are quite populist about, is the make-up of the military and how the affluent avoid service. The loudest people objecting will BE the affluent, which is why hardly anyone in congress has kids in the military.

    Follow these directives, and ALL soldiers from ALL overseas adventures (including Korea, et. al.) will be home by lunchtime.

    I’m just sayin.

    Ok, so we’ve now come to this realization?

    What kind of emotional and/or cognitive defect leads you to conclude from the fact that I pointed this out right now, it means that I’ve only now come to this realization?

    Now what the fuck are we, your average citizen, supposed to do about it?

    Fuck if I know. I have pretty much decided to not get too exercised about this shit and just go about my business as best as I can and try to enjoy myself.

    TJ said: Ok, so we’ve now come to this realization?

    CPP replies: What kind of emotional and/or cognitive defect blah, blah, blah …

    TJ responds: Don’t be a douchenozzle CPP, it was a fucking figure of speech. I didn’t mean to imply anything, other than to say now that the subject has been broached here … what is the end result?

    The answer to that is obviously not a fucking thing.

    Well, yeah. This is a fucking blog, you know. It’s not like we’re gonna take over Wheeler Hall or anything.

    I’m pretty sure that the military would be dead-set against that. One of the lessons of Vietnam is that filling the military up with people drafted against their will usually means a less effective military.

    Of course, having a military filled up with a limited number of volunteers who are sent back to combat zones again and again is probably not very good, either.

    Better idea:

    Put the question to a vote. But not secret. The government’ll know who voted for it.

    Later, sneak up on everyone and say ‘You supported the war? You go fight it, fuckers!’
