WILL U.S. LET IRAN HAVE THEIR NUKES?

SPECIAL POST

Faced with a group of Syrian rebels who probably cannot be successfully trained to tackle a ground war against I.S.I.S. and also with an Iraqi army that has an ominous history of running into the bushes, Obama is said to be ready to sign a pact with Iran wherein Iran would be allowed to complete its nuclear weapons program in return for their help in defeating the terrorist organization.  

This proposition is certainly not palatable and I was about to say that I could not fathom the possibility that Obama was even considering it.  But now, on second thought, I think Obama will go for it. 

Will you let him do it? 

That's MY AMERICAN OPINION, respectfully submitted.

THE ULTIMATE DUMMIES

SPECIAL POST

Spending the day cooped up in a car on the way home from a mini-vacation, one has the opportunity to hear a whole lot of views on a whole lot of subjects. In the midst of all of these talking heads, I heard a question of FOX NEWS:  "Just what can we do with all of the dumb people in the country, anyway?"  

In the interest of brevity, since I'm playing catch up this morning anyway, I suggest that we rout them all out of their plush Washington jobs, pronto.  If we, the people, continue to allow the Washington dummies to roost and propagate, then WE are the ultimate dumb guys.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR MUSLIM NEIGHBOR?

SPECIAL POST

On Monday, September 22nd, several American Muslim community leaders condemned ISIS and its actions at the Dallas Council on American Islamic Relations. The Muslim representatives included members from both Sunni and Shia sects, clergy members, law professionals, and civic leaders.  If that leaves you with a warm and fuzzy feeling, it shouldn't. 

While "several" spoke out against I.S.I.S. and its violent associates, there are abut 7 million Muslims in the United States who haven't.  Every minute of every day, Muslims in this country are being told by radical Muslims in the Middle East that the Jihad is here and they need to get with the program.  Does THAT leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling? 

Frankly, I don't know how you can tell the difference between a radical Muslim and a peaceful Muslim by looking at them.  So, if they are silent about their position, what are we to assume?  Is your Muslim neighbor planning to poison your water supply, take down the Internet, blow up the power  grid, or plant an I.E.D. at the local mall?  How do you know what his intentions are? 

They are quick to call themselves "Muslim Americans," but if they put "Muslim" before "America," are they really Americans?  

That's MY AMERICAN OPINION, respectfully submitted.

GETTING INTO BED WITH IRAN

Secretary of State John Kerry Has been diligently working toward getting the U.S. into bed with Iran over the I.S.I.S. terrorist problem.  Kerry pushed with all of his might to persuade Iran President Hassan Rouhani to meet with President Obama at the United Nations, but Rouhani was quick to announce that he had no intentions of meeting with Obama... period.  In the meanwhile, British Prime Minister David Cameron did arrange a meeting with Rouhani.  Evidently Rouhani prefers good tea to a beer in the Rose Garden.  

Why in the Sam Hell do we need to get into bed with Iran?  Those who get into bed with snakes are likely to get bitten.  This possibility creates noting but revulsion in my stomach and speaks volumes about our President.  Why Cameron wants to go there is beyond me, but he at least succeeded in upstaging Obama by a long shot; Obama has chirped relentlessly about his great idea of dialogue vs. bombs as a method for international relations, but it is Cameron who got the brass ring.   

Brass ring?  Circus?  Barack Hussein Obama?  Now, there's a crew that all seems to be in the same bed.  Well, once Obama gets bound and determined to do something stupid, he simply cannot be dissuaded.  Look for him to cave in on the Iranian nuclear program in exchange for their participation against I.S.I.S.  

Enjoy your crumpets.

POOF

SPECIAL POST

I haven't said much about these two "new" terrorist groups which pose an "imminent threat" to the U.S. and which were the cause for the Obama air campaign in Iraq and Syria.  I wanted to have as much of the truth out as possible before I started flapping off my gums.  

Khorasan and another Al-Qaeda offshoot were very close to launching an attack on the U.S. or Europe, according to Administration officials.  As I understand it, both groups hav been identified for some time and are therefore not "new."  I also have a problem with the vagueness of the report about an "imminent attack;" if that were to be the case, don't you think we'd know whether it was the U.S. or Europe that was in the cross-hairs?   There is quite a lot of difference between the two from a logistics standpoint, you know.  

Could it be that these "new" groups were only an excuse for the attacks into Syria? 

Think about it.  How were these terrorists going to get here... by boat or airplane?  Or are they already here?  If they are already here, how is our attack in Syria going to stop them?  They certainly wouldn't attack us by boat, so they would need access to airplanes.  Frankly, I smell a rat.  

My suspicions are further aroused by the chorus from Democrats, Administration officials and Peter King that we have to forget Obama's mistakes of the past and get totally behind him as we take on I.S.I.S. and other terrorist groups. Poof!  There goes Fast & Furious, Benghazi, the I.R.S. scandal and missing emails,  the V.A., the N.S.A.... everything just disappears!  

By the time the elections get here, Obama will have killed Bin Laden again, the two "new" terrorist groups will be defeated and I.S.I.S. will be hiding in caves. 

Please pass the Gray Poopon.

BOMBING RUNS: MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING?

SPECIAL POST

Why all of the ruckus about the air strikes in Iraq and Syria?  We had already been conducting targeted strikes against I.S.I.S. sites in Iraq for about two weeks.  But, I think most of us were questioning whether or not other countries in the Middle East would join us in any campaign, for many reasons.  When we ventured into Syria with bombing and missile attacks it was, to be perfectly honest, a real shocker to discover that other players in the neighborhood were joining us. 

Congratulations, Mr. President, I never thought you'd do even that.  

Yet, newscaster after newscaster and pundit after pundit were all asking the same question: Once you chase the terrorists into the cities and towns to hide behind women and children, what's going to be next?  How are you going to finish them off?  

Everyone, including the Administration, admits that there are going to have to be "boots on the ground" to go after the terrorists and that it will take up to a year to get the Iraqi and Syria-rebel forces trained up to the task.  How are we going to fill the gap?  Are the airstrikes going to be the end of it?  

Only time will tell, of course.  Perhaps they have developed some strategy that we are unaware of, but, I doubt that we're going to see French, Italian, Spanish, British or Australian boots on the ground.  Maybe, after the elections, we'll find out. 

In the meanwhile, it's back to the real war... against global warming.
