It’s my belief that politics are just an extension of cultural bias. It only works if you have equal representation of every bias the society supports. Otherwise, all you have is a bureaucratic group of whining, bumbling, argumentative fools.
Anyway, moving away from philosophy, it’s apparent that some people are fools when it comes to Iran. We just started talking to these people seriously, staking our grievances in a diplomatic way, and now some Neocon boob thinks it’s great to publically “hope and pray” for the bombing of Iran. Well, fuck him and fuck that. God damn Moral Conservatives. This is not World War 3.
Another Republican boob thinks that it’s the fault of an entire political party based in the United States that troops in Iraq are killed. I was reading the Pulse letter section in the Omaha World Herald today, and I was totally disgusted by retarded veterans who think that Iraq can be brought to a stalemate like Korea. It’s this type of dumbass thinking that is causing the White House to mimic stupidity.
Listen – Iraq is nothing like the Korean War or World War 2, no matter what silly little correlations you find. During the Korean War and World War 2, you had an identifiable enemy. You knew who they were – they fired on you wearing uniforms and calling themselves by a political title. There were obvious figureheads to the enemy. Most of all, it was political.
Iraq does not have a DMZ. There’s no way to put men on one side of a border to hold off men on the other side of a border when no border exists. There’s no way to look at an Iraqi citizen and say with any certainty that he/she is a “terrorist” or an “insurgent” or a “normal Iraqi citizen.” There is no one target to destroy the insurgency or the terrorists. This is NOT like any kind of warfare we’ve ever fought. This must be fought at home and in allied nations – not in Third World countries where the support is minimal and we’re just going to send our children to die for nothing.
Funny thing is, North and South Korea are opening their borders to each other as I write this, allowing Communists to spread into that vaulted South Korea that our vets fought hard to establish. Are we worried? I dont’ think so – I mean, if South Korea became a Communist nation tomorrow, there is absolutely nothing we could do to stop it.
So, old veteran guys from pre-Vietnam times – stop talking about correlations between today’s warfare and yesterday’s warfare. It’s entirely different with different strategies that require something other than brute force and a big bomb to win. You don’t know WTF you are talking about.
Half of you don’t know the difference between a Sunni and a Shi’a Muslim, let alone how to fight insurgencies or terrorists.
Oh, and Bob Kerry seriously needs to get hit by a truck. Hypocrite.
