SCORE ONE FOR THE PREZ!

- May 1st, 2012

A wee tip of the hat to U.S. President Barack Obama, for pulling off his, ‘in your face, terrorist dudes’, visit to Afghanistan …on the anniversary of the Bin Laden hit!

Osama Bin dead one year!

Well done, Sir! 

I can only imagine the mad scramble at bad guy HQ …” He’s where? Here? NOW!? …DOH!!!”

Under cover of darkness, Air Force One slipped into Bagram Air Field, the main U.S. base there, where the Prez caught a copter flight to Kabul for a meeting with his counterpart, (like, really!?) Afghan Grand Poobah, Ahmid Karzai.

The two signed an agreement that will broadly govern America’s role in that “garden” nation, beyond Uncle Sam’s combat role at the end of 2014.

Obviously, this was a gutsy move on the part of the President. While it may score him some points this election year, (his opponents will deem it a stunt) setting foot on enemy turf, no matter how well he’s protected, is always risky.

Da Prez!

Kabul is anything but a safe zone, with on-going insurgent attacks …and then, there’s “Krazy Karzai.”

I assume this wasn’t a surprise visit …that Karzai knew Obama was coming … which, I also assume, was cause for a little concern.

Ahmid, you see, is NOT one of America’s BFF’s.

Last month, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, spoke with U.S. Secretary of Defence, Leon Panetta …the following is a transcript, of a portion of that interview:

BLITZER: You trust Afghan president, Mr. Secretary, Hamid Karzai?

PANETTA: He – he is the leader of Afghanistan.

BLITZER: Do you trust him?

PANETTA: Well, I mean I – I’ve sat down with him. I talk with him. We talk pretty frankly with each other. And, you know, he is – he is the the leader and he is the person we have to deal with.

BLITZER: Does that mean you trust him?

PANETTA: Well, I mean, certainly, you know, you – you trust the leaders that you – you have to deal with. But you always kind of watch your back at the same time.

BLITZER: That doesn’t sound like a ringing endorsement of the leader of Afghanistan.

PANETTA: Well, you know, it’s – it’s true for any leader we deal with. You know, you’re…

BLITZER: But this one has said awful things about the United States.

PANETTA: No, I understand. And, obviously, that’s been – that’s been a concern. But at the same time, we have had the ability to directly relate to him when it comes to some of the major issues that we’ve had to confront.

I think the answer the Secretary was trying to avoid, was …NO! WE CAN’T TRUST THAT A-HOLE, AS FAR AS WE CAN THROW HIM!!!

Dumb and Dumber!

Unfortunately, we too, will continue our association with Karzai …and I’m sure Ottawa agrees …WE CAN’T TRUST THAT A-HOLE, AS FAR AS WE CAN THROW HIM!!!

Iran’s Pursuit of Nukes May Draw Fire!

- November 15th, 2011

If Iran’s leadership truly believes it can defy the world and pursue its’ plans to build nuclear weapons, and avoid a military conflict…its’ collective ‘nuttiness’ is greater than suspected!

Nut and Nuke!

For the first time ever, the United Nation’s International Atomic Energy Agency says, it now suspects that Iran IS conducting secret experiments, specific to the production of nuclear arms.

Not surprisingly, the Iranians deny it, saying the IAEA report just “repeats the past claims by the U.S. and the Zionist regime (Israel)”.

But, if the proof is there, and the Iranians can’t be convinced to drop their pursuit of nuclear weapons… there’s gonna be some shootin’! It may be messy, but nothing compared to the fallout, should Iran’s mad Mullahs get their mitts on nukes.

Middle-East expert Walid Phares, says further isolating Iran, slapping on more sanctions, might force it to back off, but only with a push from its’ people. (Check out our podcast of Nov. 11th… http://www.themotts.ca/listen.php ) He says our best hope of avoiding war is an Iranian ‘Arab Spring’, a deprived, disgruntled population, overthrowing the government.

Ha!

While we in the west might be willing to give tougher sanctions a shot, and hope for a revolution, the Israelis won’t be as patient, they can’t run the risk.

A nuclear armed Iran would be a nightmare, affording the ‘wacko-tollahs’ a means to achieve their dream…the destruction of Israel.

Mr. Ahmadinejad… HEADS UP!

“…Can’t Handle The Truth!”

- November 6th, 2011

While the truth may set you free, it could come at a price.  Like, cost you your job!

Major-General Pete Fuller, who was second in command of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, got the axe Friday, for having the courage to call a spade, a spade.

Maj.-Gen. Peter Fuller

During a recent interview with the website Politico, he dared to speak aloud, the TRUTH, about the Afghan leadership.

He referred to them as being “erratic”, “ungrateful”, and “isolated from reality”.

When asked about President Hamid Karzai’s revelation, that should the U.S. and Pakistan ever go to war with one another, Afghanistan would side with Pakistan, the General said, “Why don’t you just poke me in the eye with a needle!  You’ve got to be kidding me.  I’m sorry, we just gave you $11.6-billion and now you’re telling me, I don’t really care?”

He said the Afghans make unreasonable demands with no comprehension of the economic mess the States is in, or of the “sacrifices that America is making to provide for their security.”

After sacking Fuller, General John Allen, America’s top dog in Afghanistan, said Fuller’s “unfortunate comments” don’t reflect the solid U.S relationship with the Afghan government…. “The Afghan people are an honourable people, and comments such as these will not keep us from accomplishing our most critical and shared mission… bringing about a stable, peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan.”

Karzai The Corrupt!

Please feel free to burst out laughing!

Obviously, General Allen, a good, obedient soldier, was spouting the party (Pentagon) line.  I’m sure, like most, he sees Hamid Karzai for what he really is… an opportunistic, back-stabbing, self-serving weasel!

Playing both sides of the court, the Afghan leader has but one goal… to ensure, that no matter who wins… HE doesn’t lose!

General Fuller, many thanks for your service, Sir… and your honesty.

Benji Bites Barack!

- May 21st, 2011

It’s nice to know that even those at the very top can suffer an embarrassing brain fart every now and again… that’s it’s not just something we mere mortals suffer.

The Prez!

Example:  In a speech on the Middle-East this past week, U.S. president, Barack Obama said, “The boarders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized boarders are established for both states.”

Needless to say, B.O.’s statement raised a few eyebrows.  The terrorist led (Hamas) Palestinians were all a-giggle… the Israelis, dumbstruck! 

That is, until Israeli Prime Minister, Benny Netanyahu showed up at the White House the next day, and diplomatically carved Obama a new one.

Obviously annoyed, and with a “what the hell were you thinkin’” look on his face, the P.M. told the Prez, that a return to the 67 boarders as a starting point for Mideast peace, was a no go… ain’t gonna happen… fuggeddaboudit!

Our friends in Ottawa were also surprised by Obama’s remarks… and have gone on record as opposing them.

P.M. Benny!

If you’re not familiar with the “Six Day War”, and the lands taken by Israel, and would care to learn more, Google it.  You’ll find that the Israelis have been fighting for survival, and kicking ass, ever since their nation was born way back in 48.

After serving a year (mid 60’s) as a U.N. Peacekeeper in the Middle-East, my late father told me that he had just wasted 12 months of his life on a lost cause… that peace would NEVER come to that part of the world.

Unfortunately… he has yet to be proven wrong.
