No Duscussion. Our Minds Are Made Up

That’s what Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told the Russians when they offered to send a delegation to Washington to discuss the situation in Syria. No. Fucking. Thanks.

The refusal comes at a time of heightened tensions between Russia and the U.S. on issues such as Syria, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and human rights. Putin has opposed a U.S. attack on Syria, but has said he might support a U.N. resolution on punitive military strikes if it is proved that Damascus used poison gas on its own people.

As far as I can see, this is about ego. It’s about Zero’s ego, because, goddamit, he’s already set a red line, which he didn’t set, because everyone else set it, and it was Congress and the rest of the world, and… SHUT UP, RACIST! It’s Bush’s fault!

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.” — Barack Obama, August 20, 2012

Or something…

And I also I understand it’s about America’s ego, because, goddamit, we can’t have the Russians telling us what to do, because we’re Amurrica, dammit, and they’re the damn Russkies, and we’re the superpower.

Or something…

And I understand we can’t allow a dictator to gas his own people like he did a year ago, and like other dictators have done throughout the years, because gas is so much worse than bullets, or just hacking your enemy to death.

Or something…

Gee, the last time we set out on an adventure based on a spurious claim by a bugfuck crazy informant, things turned out oh so well!

But Boehner, McCain, Graham and the rest of the pro-war posse don’t want to hear it. They’ve made up their minds. No discussion necessary. No examination of the evidence needed.

After all, as long as we do the exact opposite of what the Russians want, things will be OK, right?

RIGHT????

  1. These fuckers are gonna get us all killed. Putin DOES NOT WANT that fucking LNG pipeline and he’ll do what he has to do to prevent it and he knows he’s dealing with a long time fluffer so there is no backing down. Boner and Reid the Dickless are shining up the platter for our heads for Barack the Bastard.

  2. I wasn’t able to attend the townhall here in Phoenix yesterday, was so glad to see the people tearing into John McCain for his stance on Syria. Nobody changed his mind as he’s never seen a war he didn’t like. I think people of just had enough of sending our soldiers to clean up other people’s messes.

    1. Great point. If it weren’t for the fact that some perfectly innocent people would be taken out, too, I wouldn’t even bother to retaliate if some dumbfuck decided to nuke D.C. with all the players there. As the woman in NYC said in a man-on-the-street interview the afternoon of JFK’s assassination when asked what she thought about it, “I think we’re well on our way back to constitutional government!”

  4. Friends and citizens, I’ve tried to comment coherently on this Ms. Nicki… but I’m all but speechless. First I red your post- then I just saw our president told the world our “elected representatives” should listen to us “but have the strength to decide what THEY think is best for America.” I- just can’t think straight now… who the hell does this arrogant bastard think he is?… Mr. President, YOU work for us… so does every swinging dick and jane in the congress…. how dare you make such a statement! YOU DON’T GET TO DECIDE JACKASS… we rule by majority not your personal opinion. I’m retired military I KNOW you know things I don’t – it comes with the job. You still WORK FOR US. I talked to my son, a Marine… we both respected McCain for what he did and went through… we both said we were proud that our nation elected a member of a 15% minority without shots fired. A rarity in our world, and we did it twice… and now this… I wish to whatever god, goddess, saint, or devil there is I could pull a John Galt… fuck’em… it even gets me cussing…
