Our elected officials need to be vetted to make sure that they have what we farmers call an "uncanny grasp of the obvious." Horse sense? Maybe we need Donald Trump to be president. "You're fired!"


Iraqi Intelligents
by Ted L Glines

I work nights. Nights are long. I pass the time by playing Diablo II and watching Senate Hearings on C-SPAN. I do both at the same time, which does often get my Diablo II champion killed due to distraction. The other night, I watched a panel discussion which was about Iraqi concerns in general; infrastructure, military progress, and State Department concerns. Among the panelists were one Army General and an AID representative from the State Department. The query topics were many, but the following comments emerged:

(1)   American and coalition forces are doing what the Iraqi government is requesting.

(2)   The Iraqi government is effective only inside the Baghdad “green zone” and has no effective governance over any part of Iraq outside of that confined zone.

(3)   The Sunni and Shia people do not recognize the government of Iraq.

(4)   Only 3% to 5% of the “insurgents” are Al Qaeda; most of the suicide bombers and other fighters attacking our troops are Shia and Sunni rebels who want American and coalition forces to leave Iraq.

These facts, taken together, paint a grim picture. But more alarming is the additional fact that not one of those Senators or panelists appeared to grasp the relativity of these isolated discussion issues. No one put the puzzle pieces together, nor noted any relevance. Maybe it was because each one of the facts was simply dropped as a side-detail in the discussion of some wider topic. But Intelligence is all about sifting for the puzzle pieces which fit ... isn't it? All of this is a matter of public record because these hearings are transcribed. Everything is out in the open. Shall we say “transparent” ...

Perhaps “intelligence” does not describe our Senators nor our expert panelists. Or, perhaps, an executive order is blinding them ... ? Can you say "humbug?" Sure you can!

This was always going to happen. Only the crazed, bible-f*cked, deluded maniacs in the Whitehouse couldn't see it coming.

Perhaps I am "uncannily grabbing the obvious" but will it not be military and tactical wise to get the hell out of there, let them dispach each other with suicide-bombers and when the dust settles down carpet bomb the winning kerks back to the stone age? and Afganistan? and Pakistan? and Iran? and Syria? we are in a roll, why we don't slap silly Turkey?
As we see, a catatrophe needs a few elements to happen, the field full of ignorant but fanatic people, it is not a question of if but certainly when...when the Big Bang will come from the in between collision of all of the above "elements"
