You Dropped A Bomb On Me.

9 Sep

It’s seems to me that the United States government is bound and determined to bomb every country on the planet until they all do as they are told. This has made us hated by everyone except the man in the moon and only because he was blinded NASA and can no longer see. The Untied States has a long history of bombing counties into submission and that history is no longer history but current events. You would think that with all the issues we all face in this country the government would turn it’s focus inward and do something other than pay lip service to our very own problems and keep up this game they call the war on drugs. Anybody reading this right now can go outside and trip over of a source of “illegal” drugs much quicker than he or she could find affordable health care or even a job.

We have cities damn near under siege from gangs, and those gangs include the po-lice. We have babies being aborted like it’s a form of birth control and large areas of the country that can’t find a fresh apple, but can get a hot “apple” pie from McDemon’s.

I’ll climb down now from my box of soap, but tell me this: why was it cool when Syrians were being slaughtered by lead showers and dying in thousands, but gas is like so much worst? Something is funky in D.C., and it ain’t the Potomac (my D.C. natives know what I mean).

Here’s rundown of the bombing campaign lead by the United States government. This brought to you by The American Prospect. The only problem I have with this article is collectivist terms like “we” and “our”. I ain’t doing a thing and the tax money that they steal from me to carry out these bombings is just that, stolen.

Some Context for Our Upcoming Bombing Campaign

PAUL WALDMAN

AUGUST 29, 2013

Nearly every American president eventually lets the bombs fall.

It seems obvious at this point that 1) The Obama administration is going to drop some bombs on something or someone in Syria, even if no one is yet sure what or whom; and 2) This is something they’d rather not do.

Back when George W. Bush was president, he and his team were practically giddy with excitement over the Iraq War, and much was made of the fact that nearly all the top people whose loins were burning to blow stuff up and send other people’s children to fight had themselves worked hard to avoid serving in Vietnam. But the truth is that whether we’re talking about a Republican administration filled with eager armchair warriors or a Democrat administration filled with peaceniks, everyAmerican president eventually scrambles the jets and orders the bomb bays loaded. And when you step back to look at all our military adventures, every invasion and police action and no-fly zone, you can’t help wonder whether we’ll ever see a presidency in which we don’t project our military force over somebody else’s borders. Madeleine Albright, Bill Clinton’s secretary of State, once said to Colin Powell, “What’s the point of having this superb military you’re always talking about if we can’t use it?”, and the implicit answer seems to be, none at all.

So I thought it would be worthwhile to take a quick look at some of the places we’ve invaded, bombed, or otherwise used our military on just in the last half-century, to put this in context:

  • 1964 – 1975: Vietnam. You remember that one.
  • 1965-1973: Cambodia. We dropped more bombs on the tiny country than had been used in all of World War II.
  • 1965: Dominican Republic. President Johnson sent 22,000 troops to prevent communists from taking over.
  • 1983: Grenada. In the comically named Operation Urgent Fury, we invaded the tiny island nation to stop the commies.
  • 1986: Libya. After two Americans are among those killed in a terrorist bombing of a disco in Germany, President Reagan ordered the bombing of facilities controlled by Muammar Gaddafi.
  • 1989: Panama. In Operation Just Cause, we invaded the country and deposed its leader, Manuel Noriega.
  • 1991: Kuwait/Iraq. Operation Desert Storm.
  • 1992-1995: Somalia. Operation Restore Hope. Didn’t end well.
  • 1994: Haiti. President Clinton sent 20,000 troops to restore the government of Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
  • 1995: Bosnia. US and NATO forces intervene in the civil war with a large bombing campaign.
  • 1999: Kosovo. We bomb the Serbians to help the Kosovars.
  • 2001: Afghanistan. Still going!
  • 2003: Iraq.
  • 2011: Libya.
  • 2013: Syria

This is a partial list, excluding the dozens of times we’ve shot down a jet or sent a small number of troops somewhere to help an ally put down a rebellion (here’s a much more comprehensive list). It doesn’t include the proxy wars we’ve waged in places like Nicaragua. It doesn’t include all the places we’re now using drones to pop off the occasional suspected terrorist, like Pakistan and Yemen. And it obviously excludes the lengthy list of places we sent our military in the country’s first century and a half.

Some of these operations worked out very well, others didn’t. And just to be clear, this history doesn’t tell us whether bombing Syria is a good idea or a bad idea. But if you’re wondering why people all over the world view the United States as an arrogant bully, reserving for itself the right to rain down death from above on anyone it pleases whenever it pleases, well there you go. It doesn’t matter whether you think some or even all of those actions were completely justified and morally defensible. From here, we tend to look at each of these engagements in isolation, asking whether there are good reasons to go in and whether we can accomplish important goals for ourselves and others. But when when a new American military campaign begins, people in the rest of the world see it in this broader historical context.

There is, however, one exception to what I said at the beginning about every president, Democrat or Republican, eventually ordering an invasion or two: Jimmy Carter. The failed rescue attempt of the hostages in Iran was basically the only time he sent American troops to another country with their safeties off. And he gave a really nice speech yesterday at the March on Washington anniversary, too.

    Jesus, the United Snakes, a white Anglo bastard child of Britain, will bomb every brown country on the face of the earth til we bow down and submit and call them master. You must know that this ploy is much greater than just obtaining oil.

    It’s enslaving the “lower” races for an eternity and having the God-like control over who lives and who dies. Yurugu, missing the other half of himself, must obtain his soul through vampirism. Bombing the shit outta us is purely incidental. His main goal is to obtain melanin because the Sun, our cousin, doesn’t want him here anymore.

    AmeriKlan will fall HARD and take the demons with her. And frankly, I cannot wait for this shit to be over. You know what’s funny? When Katrina hit us and we died in our backyards, nations from all over the globe felt sorry for us and offered aid. They actually said in their news presses, “Look how those AmeriKlans are treating their Negroes!”

    It was the exposure that Draco couldn’t handle. Whites are going to run to us in the future and beg for our help. Mark my words. Anyway…I’m rambling…

      Then they can usher in a golden age of neofeudalism where we all get to work on the global plantation.

      • diaryofanegress September 10, 2013 at 8:45 AM #

        @ Jeff

        Those of us that they don’t kill first for being too difficult. Russians have already arrived in FL, CA, NY, etc, and are training for “an event” that will usher in martial law. Most likely the dollar collapse or an electrical storm that disables the power grid.

        The coffins are already in GA and are waiting to be filled.

    Great piece. Just as I move to deal with Katrina and “Silent weapons” again. I could have used your title. Because that is how Katrina – and Haiti – felt: they dropped a bomb on us. Peace.

    • hunglikejesus September 10, 2013 at 7:24 AM #

      Isn’t it the anniversary for Katrina coming up or just passed?

      You can use the title sis. I think bombs being dropped is in the constitution of the U.S., or at least you would so the way they love that activity so.

      FACEBOOK is the devil

      • No Black Pete September 10, 2013 at 7:35 AM #

        It passed. I was not ready.

        I already wrote my post, and it is already out. I am not with the stealing bandwagon. Creativity is infinite. Well, for those who can get to it.

        What is up with your facebook slogan?

        • hunglikejesus September 10, 2013 at 7:53 AM #

          I can’t remember dates at all or numbers I’m general for the matter. The only birth date I can remember is my own. Thank god iPhone reminder.

          Facebook is the effing devil. For those not mature enough to handle it, it causes them much grief. It’s the leading cause of divorce here in the states.

          I should be expecting an email from you soon right?

          • No Black Pete September 10, 2013 at 8:07 AM #

            The dates are fake anyway. It is just another construct. Discover your own pace, and things will flow just fine.

            Oh, okay. I only use facebook to alert people that I do not know of a new article. Nothing personal. So, the havoc that facebook and twitter cause is not for me.

            Uhm. I disticntly remember that you were going to send me yours. But, if you need an email, then you will get one. What do you want it to be about? (Of course, my person is off limits.)

            • hunglikejesus September 10, 2013 at 8:17 AM #

              I sent you a photo of me, one good turn deserves another. Sent it to your gmail addy.

              No big sis, I’m just curious……as hell.

              • No Black Pete September 10, 2013 at 8:24 AM #

                Wow. A present! That put a smile on my face! I will check it out, and send you your present…

                As Negress would say: bwahahahahaha

    • Jeff Nguyen September 10, 2013 at 1:09 PM #

      If only more people understood that you can wage war without firing a single shot. Disaster capitalism by means of profiting off of social upheaval as a result of war and natural disasters has lobbed economic WMD’s into neighborhoods from New Orleans to Port-au-Prince to Baghdad to Sumatra.

      The global financiers repped by the World Bank, IMF, Goldman Sachs and the like would prefer we all become indentured servants spending our lives paying off debt while the billionaires and bankers run to Congress for taxpayer bailouts, tax breaks and subsidies (socially acceptable welfare).

      Rant over…

      • No Black Pete September 10, 2013 at 1:16 PM #

        Well ranted. I can take it, as you are preaching to another preacher. Allow me to preach right back.
        I have been restudying Vietnam and Indonesia, and I cannot believe how blind I was. Uh, still am. The US and UK are circling China with their fleets NOW, so they can have their war with Iran. Sure, Syria first. I still have to look into the claim that photos had been fabricated.
        Short story shorter. I cannot think of a single strategy to push for another outcome… It is war. Peace.

        • Jeff Nguyen September 10, 2013 at 4:44 PM #

          Yep, can’t have any uppity Muslims showing up the empire.

          Peace to you, too, and thanks to hunglikejesus for letting me take up so much space on his blog.

          • No Black Pete September 10, 2013 at 5:13 PM #

            Uhm. The uppity arabs are IN on the deal. Some of them are dead now, but that is besides the point. Those who do not want to believe that their own would and will sacrifice them, are… well, sacrificed.

            Enough from me too. Before I start using white babble. Peace.

            • hunglikejesus September 10, 2013 at 6:19 PM #

              And NBP you have not gotten off. I will find out who you are. Even if I gotta go Hellland myself.

              **que the deep evil laugh**

              • No Black Pete September 10, 2013 at 6:31 PM #

                Wow. See how important it is to hide your identity online? Oh, and about coming to Hell Land. I will not lose any sleep over it. After they are done strip-searching you at the airport, you will not be so eager to proceed any further. Laugh deeply about that.
                It is war. Peace.

                • hunglikejesus September 10, 2013 at 6:38 PM #

                  You are a slick one, and I’m pass due for a god ol’ strip search.

                  Let them do what they will.

                  This did take a creepy turn. To all readers please know that I, me, will not be traveling to Hell Land no time soon or in the foreseeable future. NBP is safe from these hands. Or………………….

    These songs are good, I love the second one, I like the first one but its kinda annoying the way the vocals are chopped up kinda reminds me of a scratched cd rofl.

    • hunglikejesus September 10, 2013 at 1:05 PM #

      It’s called an edit. LOL!!

      • mstoogood4yall September 10, 2013 at 5:54 PM #

        yes I know its an edit they need to re edit it and stop chopping the voice up, my brother likes to listen to chopped and screwed music sometimes and most of it sounds weird especially when its a deep voice singing a girly song like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhNi_q7mo0w rofl cover ur ears.

        • hunglikejesus September 10, 2013 at 6:17 PM #

          Did you say chopped and screwed?

          • mstoogood4yall September 10, 2013 at 9:32 PM #

            wtf sounds like somebody that is drugged up and drunk rofl. I can’t even understand what they are saying, its supposed to be boyz 2 men well dang they botched that song worse than a fake plastic surgeon botching an ass job smh.

            • hunglikejesus September 11, 2013 at 5:59 AM #

              Yeah, I thought you’d get a kick outta that one. You know that chopped and screwed came from a drug induced state of haziness?

              The dj that started the C&S genre died from the same drugs that he used?

              • mstoogood4yall September 11, 2013 at 12:50 PM #

                did not know that but I am not surprised, so my intuition was right u would have to be drunk or drugged up to enjoy it rofl.

                • hunglikejesus September 11, 2013 at 1:13 PM #

                  His name was DJ Screw and his drug of choice was lean or drank or syrup. Nothing but codeine laced cough syrup mixed with something else sweet. All codeine does is make you sleepy.

        • hunglikejesus September 10, 2013 at 6:53 PM #

          they wouldn’t let me play that song, some nonsense about download or upload or wide load. I don’t know what you kids are doing today.

          • mstoogood4yall September 10, 2013 at 9:36 PM #

            I didn’t do any of this, don’t lump me in with these song butchers I never changed a song in my life. idk what these kids are doing today either but I know what I’m doing today, eating some tacos lol.

            • hunglikejesus September 11, 2013 at 6:02 AM #

              I was kidding you. And eat some tacos for me.

  4. hunglikejesus September 10, 2013 at 1:45 PM #

    It’s a good thing when you have nothing to add and you know you have nothing to add because it’s all being said. And since I have nothing to add I’m gonna sit back and let the people dem reason this one out. SEEN!!

  5. TrojanPam September 10, 2013 at 7:03 PM #

    Hard to understand how any sane person could believe that the U.S. government is fighting for human rights by bombing people.

    That’s like me stopping a parent from abusing their children by burning the house down with the kids in it.

    We are ruled by psychopaths
