The Crying Game

It was reported earlier today that Nancy Pelosi was “near tears” during Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech this morning.

I know, I know… you could never tell be looking at her. So we’ll have to take her word for it.

Apparently Mrs. Pelosi was so deeply insulted by Netanyahu’s speaking out loud of the fear Israeli’s feel regarding Iran obtaining a Nuclear Weapon that she nearly broke into tears. (As a note, her face would literally have to break for there to be tears coming from it.)

Mrs. Pelosi stated that she was offended by Bibi’s “condescension” as it pertained to what she determined was his belief American Leftists didn’t comprehend the danger posed to Israel by Those Who Must Not be Named should they acquire even a single Nuclear Weapon.

Apparently lost upon Mrs. Pelosi is President Obama’s current policy of allowing Iran to develop Nuclear Weapons. Also missing her completely is the Administrations desire to talk about the dangers of such weapons while Iran’s development of them continues unabated.

There you have it…

How dare the Leader of the country who is surrounded by those whose National Charters demand its inhabitants be ‘marched into the sea’… or better yet, be ‘completely annihilated’… voice concern over the Chamberlainesque foreign policy being practiced by President Obama designed to kick the atomic can down the road so someone else can be blamed for Nuclear War in the Middle East. (We’ve already seen how effective this approach has been with North Korea.)

Meanwhile in the House…

John Boehner actually breaks into tears trying to convince anyone who still believes a word he says that he really wanted to de-fund the Illegal Amnesty program being operated out of DHS.  (This guy has to go… seriously… he’s got to be ousted.)

Now I’m going to cry over a bottle of Scotch.


The Ethnic Excuse

Paving the way for Taking Taiwan…

(Originally posted 030314)

Excusing a Nation’s Projection of Power in order to “protect” Ethnic Groups has been used since Force was invented.

In the United States we are told, repeatedly, that Ethnicity does not matter… yet we’ve abandoned the Supremacy of the Individual and actively Demonstrated Race Does matter in our Hiring, Higher education admissions and Legal practices every day.

So how can we see it as a Ridiculous Reason to Invade another country?

Ethnic and Racial differences remain ingrained in the “Enlightened” European mind.  Racism is rampant and accepted.  These are the very same Europeans we are told we must emulate by Our Progressive Elitist class of Politicians.  (Yes, I’m referring to John Kerry et al.)  The very Europeans whom we are told have it all figured out.  The very Europeans who are surprised that anti-Semitism is exhibited not from “the far right” but by everyday “Liberal” people.

But the most interesting aspect is They see this Excuse being used by Putin as Reasonable, even Logical.  Protecting One’s Racial Heritage is as common as Hating the Other person’s.

Of course, this leads to problems.  Very serious problems.  It always has.

Once You accept this Excuse for Force as valid, as a Certain Harvard Russian Studies Professor has… sadly, you must look and see Who’s in the On-Deck position.

The most Obvious?

Taiwan.

Followed by some other minor players… like Nepal, Moldova, Slovakia, the Baltic States, Quebec, South Korea, Kashmir, the list is endless…

I know, Canada wouldn’t be upset about Quebec.  They would probably welcome handing off the corruption and crumbling infrastructure to the French for while, until they gave up and handed it back.

But the point is We are Allowing a Precedent to be set.  How do you argue that National Sovereignty has any meaning when you fail to support those Nations you Promised to support should it be challenged?  We have already ceded an Ideological High Ground by sacrificing Ideology based on Freedom and Liberty of the Individual.  So What’s left?  Our Word?  What is that worth?

Nothing.

The Chinese Leadership are not stupid, they see clearly what is being illustrated by Putin’s efforts.

And I don’t find it a coincidence that Taiwan was not permitted to fly their flag during the Sochi Olympics.

Frankly, If I were sitting in Taiwan right now I’d be looking for the closest container vessel headed south.  Right Friggin’ now.

If you still don’t get it, it’s a 1936 redux.

Godwin’s Law be damned.

Hitler took most of Europe using the “We must Protect Ethnic Germans.” as his broadcasted excuse.  Actually he was stripping the resources of those countries for his own use… but that doesn’t Play in Peoria.  So he went with Uniting German’s.  Just sounds nicer.

We are not seeing anything New here.

And the latest Non-Aggression Pact between China and Russia simply assures both parties they will not have to reserve any troops for a second front.  It just makes things easier… having to worry about one less thing when you want to focus on taking stuff you think should be yours.

The question I have is why do we let Appeasers run our country?  (It’s a rhetorical question… They sound “nice” so we put them in charge.  It’s the “If we’re only more friendly” argument that passes for reason in the Visualize Whirled Peas circle.  It’s also an ongoing effort to repress the past lessons or attributing those events to lesser humans who happened to be in charge at the time.  This belief is often spoken in the words “That could never happen today.”)

What’s interesting is, it’s as if Putin’s Generals are saying “You know Vlad, That Austrian Guy with the silly mustache had it right… he just got in a hurry.”.  (There has been a question posed regarding Bush’s inaction on Putin’s invasion of Georgia and if that made Bush seem weak.  Yes.  It did.  But the question was offered up as moral relativity giving our current Administration’s inaction.  Sorry, but it was weakness on display under Bush just as it’s weakness on display under Obama.  It doesn’t matter who was displaying it.)

If I were leading what must now be considered only a “Resistance Movement” in Ukraine I would be finding every camera I could and begging as loudly as possible for U.S. and British help.  But it has become so fashionable for Europeans to blame their problems on the United States over the last several decades that it places them in an awkward position and makes it nearly impossible to overtly ask for our help.  Their ego may be their undoing.

This must come as a relief to the current Administration.

Those in charge will do anything to prevent the perception of this being an “East vs. West” thing.  And they will certainly not entertain anything as foolish as “Good vs. Evil”.

So What Do You Do when you pretty much agree with the Guy moving his troops across Europe?

We’re doing it.

We’ll be doing more of it as we watch Taiwan get “Protected”.

But of course, that could never happen today.

(I have intentionally used Race and Ethnicity interchangeably.  When it comes to the sacrifice of the Individual in favor of Balkanization they are the same thing.)

Since Our Acting Foreign Policy is to Ignore those who Want Freedom and Liberty

Let’s make it Official.

We’ve already handed over Georgia and Syria to the New Soviets, we might as well let them have the Ukraine. We should probably think about Moldova, Hungary, The Czech Republic and Slovakia as well as the rest of Eastern Europe.

We might seriously consider handing the entirety of Germany back… it just doesn’t seem Fair that they didn’t get the whole thing in the first place. I know… I know… Germany might not go for that, but at least we could let the World know we would be OK with it and if Germany wants to fight they’ll be on their own.  Hell, throw in Greece… they can’t do any worse.  And, it’s about time France and Italy learn how to defend themselves.

We’ve already ignored those wanting Freedom in Iran in 2008… even though we urged them for 30-years Rise Up against Tyranny.

They did… We didn’t.  So why the pretense now?  Send the Iranian Mullahs plans for a Real Nuke, and toss in some cutting edge crowd control devices, then be done with it.

North Korea?  Who Cares?  Our South Korean Ambassador has probably never been to South Korea anyway…  And shouldn’t there really be just One Korea?

Taiwan?

Let China have it… to paraphrase the Greatest Secretary of State the U.S. has ever had; “At this point what difference does it make?”  Oh, and China acts like they want Africa too… Good with Me.

Venezuela… Surely with enough Wax and American Ingenuity we could resurrect Chavez…

We might as well turn all Shipping Security over to the Somalis.  All of it… World Wide.

Latin America?  Where are the Sandinistas when you need them?  We should get the CIA on that… BATFE could supply Them with weapons purchased in Arizona.

Cuba?  You know the Cuban’s have always had their eye on South Beach.  That could be fun to watch.  If they do decide to take South Beach they’ll need a new prison… so throw in Gitmo.

Israel?  Seriously?

There you go…

A Real Foreign Policy built on the Progressive Wisdom of French and German Intellectuals.

It requires very little effort and is extremely easy to implement.  The World will finally like us!

With all the time We save we can dismantle everything else that works here at home..

What about Afghanistan you ask?  Well… we should keep that.  If that were an issue we would be hearing about it from the Anti-War crowd complete with pictures of caskets returning home, so clearly it’s OK to keep that running.

Does this all sound ridiculous?

It is.


Finally…

After reading about Georgia blazing the trail by rebuilding their monuments to Stalin I realized that this opens the door for the French to finally put up their Monuments to Hitler. The Italians, of course, should also be able to restore their tributes to Mussolini… I mean, Mao still has his right?!  Only seems fair.
I think this all speaks well for the direction the world is headed.
I’m going to have to head to the storage unit and pull out, dust off and put my Chamberlain bust back up on the mantle… Right after I send my Churchill bust back.
Nothing says Merry Christmas like “Peace in our time.”

Pass the Egg Nog Comrade.  I’m going to need a lot of it.

Nostrovya!
