Bonus Ronsday

Since I missed last week. Ron rants.

For decades now . . . in fact, since Jefferson realized the idiocy of radical Islam and how it made its acolytes brainwashed loons . . . the policies of the United States government for dealing with the Middle East have been spectacularly naïve.

Eisenhower didn’t understand Muslims and was too busy worrying about Western Europe and what Moscow was up to to do anything about the recently resurrected hatred for Hebrews and a growing hatred for the US.

Kennedy was deeply involved in tap-dancing on the nuclear dance floor with Nikita while campaigning for re-election after having done nothing in his entire administration except rattle special-interest groups’ cages.

Johnson wanted desperately to somehow emerge from Southeast Asia as a winner while still managing to get laid as often as possible when Ladybird wasn’t watching him. He couldn’t have cared less about a bunch of camel-jockeys and goat-rapers.

Reagan was committed to making jokes and one-liners about communism and national defense and the Berlin Wall to do anything about what he considered a non-problem of terrorism by amateurs.

Shrub I presided over a stupendously successful military campaign to demonstrate the difference between a modern superpower and a Neolithic culture trying to act like one, then let his chance to actually accomplish something over there to dry up by losing the election to a redneck womanizer named Bubba.

Slick was too busy enjoying himself to get involved in the serious business of governance, and Shrub II had no business being in charge of anything more complex than a west Texas rodeo.

Soetoro . . . well, what can be said about that popinjay:

But finally we got a PotUS who said all the right things to prevent a career felon from grabbing the reins and then . . . and THEN . . . keeping his promises as much as a balky, seditious, anti-US Congress would allow.

Two days ago he ordered a hit on a classic bad guy, Soleimani, who’s been responsible for the deaths and maiming of thousands of Americans. He put up with Iran’s merde for months, years, and finally said, “BASTA!”

When Iran began sabotaging and commandeering oil tankers in the Straits of Hormuz, Trump exercised restraint and worked through the international community to get them to stop.

Then Iran shot down a US drone, and he kept his temper in check, saying, “Hey, we got plenty of ‘em. Keep it.” Next they attacked Saudi oil fields, while all the time funding anti-Israel terrorism in the region, and Trump kept his cool and tried to use sanctions and diplomacy to restore stability.

Then Soleimani instigated attacks on the US embassy in Baghdad and Khamenei dissed Trump by saying there was nothing he could do about it, so he blew away the sonofabitch who organized and directed the attack.

So . . . what does the left wing of the US legislature do?

Senator Udall – “Trump is bringing our nation to the brink of an illegal war with Iran with no congressional approval.”

Senator Carper – “the Trump administration has chosen rash provocation over any coherent strategy.”

Senator Murphy – “we don’t generally assassinate foreign political officials [because] such action will get more, not less, Americans killed.”

Senator Markey – “assassination of Soleimani is a massive, deliberate, and dangerous escalation . . . the President just put the lives of every person in the region at immediate risk.”

Senator Blumenthal – “Trump owes a full explanation of airstrike reports – all the facts – to Congress and the American people.”

Senator Warren – “America’s priority MUST be to avoid another costly war.”

Senator Sanders – “Trump’s dangerous escalation brings us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East.”

Joe Biden – “Trump has tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox.”

Representative Levin – “I have serious concerns about this president’s execution of a potential act of war without authorization of Congress.”

Speaker Pelosi – “he has put the lives of American servicemembers, diplomats, and others further at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions.”

I’m not even gonna bother with what the rest of the Dems said . . . like Omar, Tlaib, AOC, et al. You know where they stand on ANY decision Trump makes.

Horse manure!! Jihadis such as Soleimani have no regard for anyone except those who agree completely with their distorted view of Islam. Given the opportunity, they’d play out their interpretation of the surahs which tell them any person, even another Muslim, who doesn’t believe the same way they do is an apostate and must be eliminated, IOW killed.

They would gleefully kill me and my family if the opportunity arose, so I have no sympathy whatever for them and how they’re treated by Syria or Turkey or anyone else over there in that region of the globe where killing each other is their favorite pastime.

They’ve been killing each other since the 7th century, so long now that killing has become permanently inscribed in their DNA.

What we need to do is put a MOAB on their uranium-235 enrichment site with its 1000+ centrifuges spinning like a CNN editor to prep for a warhead to eliminate Israel, since all the Muslim states haven’t been able to accomplish that in 75 years of trying.

What we most certainly do NOT need is another milquetoast community organizer with no experience in anything except pot smoking and troublemaking to think up new and exciting ways to do all the wrong things for all the wrong reasons.

Ronsday – Iran

Didn’t post any Ron last week. Sorry. Missed a lot of other stuff over the holidays, but did get the important stuff: boobage and puns. Anyhoo, here’s Ron’s take on what’s going on along with some cartoons and other visuals he sent.

I got this clear image in my head of Steve McQueen in Sand Pebbles tellin his CO, “Well, we gotta shoot SOMEthin . . . even if it’s wrong.”

Donno if that actually is IN the movie or if my imagination just put it there. Tried to find a clip, but gave up ‘cuz I ain’t real good at doin that stuff.

Anyways, the bottom line is that (1) our understanding of the Muslim mind, whether Sunni or Shi’a or “moderate,” is woefully oblivious. Uh . . . lemme put that another way — we ain’t got a friggin clue.

(2), for 40 years our diplomats and politicians and thinktanks and intellectuals and armchair generals have tried to reason with, cooperate with, negotiate with, and put up with the lunatheocracy in Tehran. And as Dirty Harry tells his captain about his mouthwash, it ain’t cuttin it.

Reagan came close with Daffyduck . . . got him to abandon his WMD programs and quit actin like Hannibal reincarnated. But then the State Department blew it and the area degenerated into a civil war and terrorism training facility.

Shrub the First gave his field commanders their mission and then got the hell out of their way while they totally eradicated Sodom Insane’s vaunted “Imperial Guard” and “Mother of all Battles” military. But he didn’t finish the job, so the rat got away and his kid had to go back to clean up the mess . . . and then Soetoro’s policies resulted in another civil war.

We’ve done nothing useful or correct over there in that region since Jefferson scuttled the Barbary pirates. After throwing BILLIONS and BILLIONS and BILLIONS at Egypt, Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkey, Kuwait, and several other places, the only people who want us around are the Israelis, and that’s only for the economic aid and hi-tech equipment we give them, which really pisses off the Arab and Persian worlds.

Just seems to me that the “if we don’t fight them over there, we’ll soon be fighting them over here” concept ain’t workin out too well. Considering the hundreds of thousands of Somalis and Persians and Iraqis and who-knows-what brought over here by DingleBarry, we ARE fightin ‘em over here. I mean, does anybody really think Ilhan Omar is on OUR side? About as integrated as kielbasa in Mecca.

The warlords and ayatollahs and wannabes in the Middle East simply don’t do diplomacy, or negotiation, or compromise the way we do. They lie, they cheat, they bomb, they do whatever furthers their goal and then claim total impunity because their religion gives them the “right” to lie or murder or whatever if it can even REMOTELY be considered in support of Islam.

All they understand in terms of diplomacy and negotiation is strength, strength of character and strength on the battlefield. Anything else, they’ll simply say what they think we wanna hear and then do whatever the hell they want as soon as we leave the scene.

Qadaffi calmed down in the face of strength. Hussein went into a hidey-hole in the face of strength. Even Khomeini released the American hostages when the pipsqueak peanut farmer was replaced with a stubborn Irishman who rode horses and made war movies for a living.

Bubba did squat. Dubya got it wrong. DingleBarry apologized. Finally, FINALLY, we got a CinC who very Pattonesquely said, “By God that’s ENOUGH!” and called Khamenei’s bluff by vaporizing his Terrorist-in-Chief.

And now, simply because Trump did something decisive, every leftisto and RINO north of the Rio Grande has to jump on the Condemnomobile and say he’s starting WWIII. Really? Iran has the logistics and funding to take on the #1 millitary on the planet? They want a war with us about like they want a Chicago-style deep-dish pepperoni served by Jesus Himself.

Here’s a quote from Nikki Haley that sums it all up nicely for me:

“You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran. You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members, you’re not hearing China, you’re not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership and Democrat presidential candidates.”

Holy Shi’ite, Ratman . . . any day now I fully expect some federal judge to order Trump to “unkill” Soleimani . . . and Baghdadi, too.

That’s different because shut up.
