BAM GO THE MISSILES

Posted by Andrew Roman on January 24, 2009

Has confusion set in yet?

Are the pacifists who had the words “Bush War Crimes” hot-ironed onto their foreheads – those who had visions of impeachment plumbs dancing in their tired minds – wondering what the hell is going on? Perhaps that swearing-in ceremony on Capitol Hill was nothing but a sweet dream – complete with botched Oath, pre-recorded “play along” string arrangement, racist benediction and listless say-nothing speech.

Maybe George W. Bush is really still in charge.

It just doesn’t make sense otherwise.

Those aren’t birds or locusts … those are question marks flying from the spinning craniums of peace-symbol wearing twenty-somethings (and their sixty-something grey-haired pony-tailed mentors) trying to figure out how such a Bush-like move comes from such a savior.

How could The One – the Messiah, if you will – approve of such a thing as launching missiles to kill people? That’s the kind of thing Republicans do. That’s the kind of thing that war mongers and right-wing trigger-happy xenophobes get off on.

Bam?

Are you in there?

The New York Times, of all places, has the story:

Two missile attacks launched from remotely piloted American aircraft killed at least 15 people in western Pakistan on Friday. The strikes suggested that the use of drones to kill militants within Pakistan’s borders would continue under President Obama.

Remotely piloted Predator drones operated by the Central Intelligence Agency have carried out more than 30 missile attacks since last summer against members of Al Qaeda and other terrorism suspects deep in their redoubts on the Pakistani side of the border with Afghanistan.

But some of the attacks have also killed civilians, enraging Pakistanis and making it harder for the country’s shaky government to win support for its own military operations against Taliban guerrillas in the country’s lawless border region.

American officials in Washington said there were no immediate signs that the strikes on Friday had killed any senior Qaeda leaders. They said the attacks had dispelled for the moment any notion that Mr. Obama would rein in the Predator attacks.

Mr. Obama and his top national security aides are likely in the coming days to review other counterterrorism measures put in place by the Bush administration, American officials said.

Dead terrorists, Mr. President.

That’s what we’re shooting for – or aiming for.

The more the merrier.

    Just when I thought conservatives couldn’t be any more idiotic, someone sends me a link to this.

    First you create a strawman then beat it to death. Nice job. By the way, plums are what would dance in your head. A plumb is what is used to get to depth of your intellectual dishonesty.
