On My Home Planet

I have an opinion about everything, and here it is for the world to see.

Hating on: morons, self-righteous political extremists, the man-and-baby-hating strain of feminism, CraigsList, yuppies, careerists, white liberal guilt, people devoid of any sense of morals or personal responsbility, and other generally clueless and misguided types who continually piss me off.

Nice going, assholes...

This is what happens when you attempt to fight a war on terror directed against your country, somewhere besides your country's soil. Um, I got B's and C's during my brief disaster - I mean, stint - as a Polysci major and I could tell you that.

Lissen up, Tex: Instead of continuing this ridiculous "Hafields and McCoys Face off" on the global arena, why don't you close the damn border (no, not the one with Canada!) that terrorists from around the world leak through, crack down on expired Visas and such, break down the light-years of red tape that keep the government moving like molasses, and actually do your freaking job and take care of your country?

If you've ever spoken to me or read my blog for 30 seconds... you know I am not some hippie peacenik by a long shot. I am all for war if it's going to actually accomplish protecting our country. Well... you all have spent the better past of the past decade making this country less safe through your freaking stupidity.

We could have had John Kerry just hand the country on a platter to Al-Quaeda for a lot cheaper.

See... this just isn't true.

How do I know? Because Cheney and Bush said so!

The truth is only what you believe.

On the whole, the NIE is relatively useless. It is filled with all sorts of "DUH!" observations. Yeah, if the U.S. "cuts and runs" of course that will embolden the terrorists. If the U.S. stays and wins the fight, then jihad no longer holds the appeal that it once did. Do we really need to conduct extensive research to figure this out?

I've been saying since 2002 that any Muslin terrorist who wants instant "street cred" will claim to be Al-Qaeda and Al-Qaeda will claim him even if they've never met because Al-Qaeda wants to be seen as active as well. Well guess what, the NIE says the same thing in more words than I just did. And I don't have a security clearance to come up with that conclusion.

But the point is, the NIE has become a wishy-washy document that anybody can use to prove their point. Intelligence gathering has drifted from being a useful tool in foreign relations and defense planning into a political tool. It is clear that what was leaked was taken way out of context, but the damage has been done. What was released to refute the leak can be spun just about any way one decides they want to.

Sitting in a shell and trying to keep everybody out isn't going to solve the problem. Yes there is a lack of desire to do it, but there is also a huge logistical nightmare that nobody even wants to confront. For instance, on port security, guess how many containers come into the United States every year? 11 million. That's too many to check at this time because it takes 15 to 20 inspectors 4 hours to search just one container.

Let's not even talk about the economic consequences.

Like it or not we're playing an away game here and we're better off fighting on the plains of Iraq than we are in the mountains of Afghanistan or on the streets of U.S. cities. While the looney-toon lefties cry about us "bringing Al-Qaeda to Iraq" (which is supported by the NIE btw), we've successfully choosen a battlefield of our choosing.

Now all we have to do is win.

Apparently, we do need to conduct extensive research to figure out the obvious; how else can the fatcat defense contractors in bed with Bush expect to get paid?

I just don't feel like we're winning. That's my real beef.
