  1. I can explain it in three words. Take their stuff.

    • Took the words out of my mouth… “Give us yer stuff, or we’ll kill you.”

      See also: Domestic Policing, Revenue “services”, et al.

  2. False dilemma:
    There is no “US” policy in the Middle East.
    There are 50 or 800 competing policies, depending on the time, the people in charge, and out of what side of bed they got, going back to 1919 at least. And no two of them are congruent. Nor have ever been required to be so.

    It is best explained as Policy By Dory:
    Doing Whatever Sounds Good At That Particular Moment, Depending On With Whom We’re Dealing, Until An OH! Squirrel! Moment

    19 words.
    What do I win?

      This more or less.
      Remember the competing factions in Washington…

      Covert Intel.
      Department of State
      Pentagon

      All three think they know the best way to deal with foreign parties and depending on who is in charge, they get to try their ideas out. Many times at the same time with the same parties.

      Not 19 words but its a complicated house of bullshit.

  5. I’ll take the three word challenge for 500 Phil, I’m going to go with:

    Smedley was right.

  6. Alfred E. Neuman

    Reblogged this on ETC., ETC., & ETC..

  7. Did anyone happen to notice that Madam Secretary’s Libya is not on the list?
    She came, she saw, he died. And she did it without an FBI HRT team. Imagine what she can accomplish WITH one.

  8. How does one call bullshit on bullshit? Doesn’t that equal negative bullshit?
    😉

  9. Fuck islam, and whoever rides in on it.
