The Daily Caller
presents convicted criminal Oliver North's year-end what-to-fear-next-year message. Why don't we see
what Ollie & the other manly men who piss their Depends® daily are a-skeert of this
In January, barring action by Congress and the White House, U.S. defense spending cuts totaling $1.1 trillion over the next four years will begin to take effect. Such an outcome in the midst of these perilous times ought to be unthinkable.
Instead of putting tens of thousands of Americans to work building new ships, submarines, aircraft and a missile shield to protect the American people from nuclear attack, the Obama administration wants the federal government to create temporary jobs repaving highways, painting bridges and re-roofing public schools. Rather than have unemployed construction workers build a petroleum pipeline from Canada (and improve U.S. energy security), the Obama White House wastes billions on phony “green jobs.” The administration has to hope we all will forget the word “Solyndra.”*
Back to the classics for next year: Nuclear attack!! Ollie also suggests you can stop worrying about those "jobs" the politicians keep harping on, because your "job" won't mean shit if Ollie's Three Things About Which To Really Worry happen:
1) An Iranian nuke. Just before Christmas, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told us Iran could have a workable nuclear weapon in 2012. He also knows — but didn’t say — that the theocrats in Tehran already have the means of delivering it. Tel Aviv, Israel, is target No. 1. American civilians are No. 2 on the ayatollahs’ hit parade. To Israelis, the expression “Never Again” isn’t a political slogan. It’s a way of life. They are not going to wait to be incinerated.
The Obama administration could stop the Iranians from building atomic weapons and perhaps even bring about regime change by forbidding any company doing any business in Iran from doing any business in the U.S. But unless the O-Team takes such a step, the Israelis will have to act pre-emptively to prevent annihilation. If you think the “2008-11 global recession” hurt, you don’t want to contemplate what the world economy would be like after an attack on Iran’s nuclear weapons sites.
Well-tortured logic: If we don't screw up the world economy w/ this bizarre super-embargo plan, our friends the Israelis will eff things up. And it will all be Iran's fault, of course.
Another classic, more of a never-went-away rather then a return: THEM!!
2) The jihad. The “Arab Spring” — once so proudly proclaimed to have been instigated by Obama’s soaring rhetoric — has become a nightmare for democratic aspirations in the Middle East. Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, Moammar Gadhafi and Anwar al-Awlaki are dead, but the jihad being waged by radical Islamists is stronger than ever. Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Sudan are headed for Shariah rather than secular governance in 2012. Yemen, Pakistan, Syria, Jordan, Nigeria and even Saudi Arabia could follow suit soon. The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom forecasts that Christianity could be eradicated in these countries. The economic impact of such an upheaval is potentially catastrophic.
Funny. Wasn't it all George Bush's inspiration by invasion & occupation when things seemed to be going well in the Arab world? (Ollie, could we get just one citation of the proud proclamations of Obama's instigation?) Yet now Xianity could be eradicated in these countries, & apparently Saudi Arabia is not currently under Shariah. Potentially catastrophic indeed.
And don't forget the
Russkies, who will always be a menace. Always.
3) The collapse of Russian democracy. Vladimir Putin is presiding over a dying country — and he knows it. Though Russian energy exports to Europe and China currently fill the coffers of Moscow’s kleptocracy and help rebuild Soviet-era nuclear weapons, the future for the land of the czars is bleak. Russia’s population — now 141.7 million — drops by nearly 1 million per year. With an average male life span of just 59 years, look for 2012 to be the year Putin and his cronies do all they can to line their pockets — at our expense.
Waiting for some outrage from Ollie at certain kleptocracies here, who've already done quite the job of lining pockets at our expense. There truly are none so blind as those who will not see. Also motes, beams & eyes. And how is America's experiment in democracy working out, by the vote-suppressing way, you fucking criminal?
It'll be much better when we've bankrupted ourselves to defend a feudal shithole w/o roofs on its schools or paved roads, won't it?
Happy New Year, Suckers!!
*Already forgotten Ollie, 'though your friends at TheDC
tried to the best of their limited abilities to raise some sort of stink about it.
