McCain and Graham Pout U.S. Didn’t Get to Drop Enough Bombs on Libya

probably hiding in saddam's old caveAging lesbian power couple John McCain and Lindsey Graham are excited to hear about what appears to be the final collapse of the Qaddafi regime in Libya, although Sartorial Satan is still in hiding and Tripoli is not yet under full rebel control. Team McHamBiscuits nonetheless have an important nonsense neoconservative reflection on the whole saga: “we regret that this success was so long in coming due to the failure of the United States to employ the full weight of our airpower.” So sorry! to Libya, that the U.S. was not more involved in your conflict. U.S. military intervention in foreign conflicts is historically a top choice for fast conflict resolution, so really just a huge apology if Libya feels it missed out on that. Can John McCain still get some of Libya’s money, though?

Here is John McCain on Twitter in July, explaining why MOAR WAR in Libya is actually free. Libyans will totally pay to have bombs dropped on them, neat!

Oh well, no Libyan monies for U.S. bombz. The U.S. will just bill Afghanistan a higher rate to keep margins strong. [Senator John McCain]

      Absoluement! Just look at how well all those petro dollars are paying for our tussle in Iraq. Expenses covered, plus a tidy profit. Never fails!

      1. WunkRocker

        How much to get Wrong Way McCain to crash a plane into something in Tripoli? Kind of like a predator drone only dumber.

        1. MichelesPantalones

          Ya can't afford him, his wife's got $100 million. Even if he does call her a trollop and a cunt.

    2. GOPCrusher

      Wasn't he the same asshat that said Quadaffy Duck would never leave unless America put boots on the ground?

    3. MichelesPantalones

      He, of all people, should know — having lived through VN — that war is *never* a source of profit (okay, maybe to the Krupps and them, but still). What a PRICK.

    4. berkeleyfarm

      Well, that, and someone who wants to jump on the bandwagon of an apparently successful project after badmouthing it all along.

    1. Ducksworthy

      Yes. Sometimes these aging lesbian couples can become very bitter, not being able to legally divorce can be a problem.

      1. ProgressiveInga

        Actually, lesbo couples who split up often stay best friends. McHamBiscuits are more like when one half of the couple decides she wants to knock boots w/ a fella. I'm lookin' at you Walnuts.

        1. Ducksworthy

          I was thinking of a friend who built a house with her partner. The partner put up the dough and she did the work. Guess who ended up with the house.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      How dare Walnuts swipe one of Mitt Romney's pre-printed "I woulda done it better" press releases? That's just rude!

    2. Swampgas_Man

      I thought one of the bigger gripes against O'Bammer was that he DID commit our etc. Or am I just expecting a silly consistency?

        1. DaRooster

          I heard that once he took out close to half of Spain's electricity with a crash… what a doosh…

      1. Rotundo_

        That's only if you don't take the Forrestal 'splosion into consideration. If you count that he could well be North VIetnam's greatest living pilot. Even without it is a record for the NVAF. I'm somewhat surprised they haven't sent him an award of some sort, but I suppose they don't want to piss him off more than they already did.
        (For what it is worth, I value his service and his remarkable struggle in the war. As an Admiral's kid he could have always pussyed out. On the other hand, he should have never been allowed in a plane or much of anything more lethal than a jeep, legacies suck)

    1. prommie

      Hey, he put an aircraft carrier out of commission when he dropped a bomb and scored a perfect bullseye on the flight deck. From an altitude of 0 feet. A US aircraft carrier.

    2. BTWBFDIMHO

      That's why he was a perfect match with Sarah Lou: he doesn't return expensive equipment and she doesn't return expensive clothing.

    3. flamingpdog

      No snark answer: 3. My brother flew an A-class bomber like the one Walnuts crashed over North Vietnam, a few years after he did, and I always introduce him to my friends as a Navy bomber pilot who crashed three fewer planes than Walnuts.

      1. MichelesPantalones

        And the thing is, that stupid prick would never have crashed that third plane and wound up as a PoW if he hadn't been hot-dogging it, as usual. Punk.

  1. EatsBabyDingos

    I am proposing a new TruckNutz threat level warning/award for stupid people behaving stupidly. Four TruckNutz is for the truly dumb. This is a two TruckNutz for WalNutz.

  2. ManchuCandidate

    Didn't take long for the Wingnutty crowd to start shrieking about how Liebruls don't know jack about war and shoulda woulda coulda done this that and everything.

    I wonder how long it will take for them to say this is actually W's victory…

    Obammer's Scoreboard:
    A few hundred million Chinese Dollars of cruise missiles and bombs and the net result is one ruined dicktatershit.

    W's Scoreboard:
    A couple of trillion Chinese Dollars of weapons, a weakened military, lots of dead and the net result is a quagmire and one slightly used "Mission Accomplished" Sign plus a whole lot of veterans with PTSD and nasty health issues that is going to cost the US America forever and a day (but that would ruin the narrative for W and Faux newzi types.) Plus no weapons of mass destruction.

    1. Nothingisamiss

      I worried about the cost of all those returning veterans and their health care needs, too, but maybe some smart pro-war republican will recognize that this form of health care is socialism(!) and these wounded vets need to pick them own damn selves up.

      1. V572 T-Blow

        Just go visit your local VA hospital — goddamn socialist paradise, with government-employee docs and government-owned building…the horror!

      2. DahBoner

        Not only is free health care by Government doctors to Vets socialism, but the entire military is Socialism.

        Go out and get your own private army and stop freeloading off that Big Gum'mint Military….

        1. horsedreamer_1

          In a stunning move, Koch Industries stock rose 4.88$ with news of the Wichita-based concern's purchase of Xe.

          1. memzilla

            I used to wonder if it was Charles or David that had 666 tattooed just aft of his hairline. Now, I figure there's nothing in the Bible that says it couldn't be twins, each with a 333 tattoo…

      3. Biel_ze_Bubba

        The problem with health care costs for returning vets is the "returning" part. Keep 'em out there, blowing up shit, and it's a sacred "defense" expense.

        1. MichelesPantalones

          Six, seven stop-lossed tours of duty. Usually they off themselves around that point, so, no health care costs. WINNING, DUH!

      1. MichelesPantalones

        Of course. Because it will be written by the same motherfuckers from Regent University who will infiltrate every orifice of this state the minute they can get one of their nutbags elected.

    2. Steverino247

      We're still paying for WW2 and just finished WW1 when the last of the doughboys passed. The VA should be part of the Defense budget so people can see how much war really costs. Instead, the millitary busts their asses to discharge certain of our wounded and injured to the VA as soon as possible to keep them off the Defense books. I was able to thwart that process when my son was wounded in W's little adventure as I knew he'd get higher priority treatment if his chain of command was still involved (and they were–to their eternal credit).

      1. MichelesPantalones

        So sorry about your son. I hope he's doing better.

        Goddamn you repugnantcans, stop throwing EVERYBODY ELSE'S KIDS into Moloch's gaping jaws ya great stupid bastards.

    3. MichelesPantalones

      $3.6 trillion and counting for Dubya's wars, according to Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes. That's close to 1/4 of the current deficit right there.

    1. donner_froh

      And only two–since he has officially been dropped into the dust bin of history, perhaps the historians can decide which of the fifty or so variant spelling in English one should use.

      Dude had a lot of aliases.

        1. Biel_ze_Bubba

          Or QaDaffy. Or GaDaffy. I prefer G'Daffy.
          Google and Wikipedia can handle 'em all, so no worries.

  3. DashboardBuddha

    Wait…didn't NATO bomb the everloving fuck out of everything? So, I guess we should have weighed in and bombed the double fuck plus out them.

      1. flamingpdog

        … or ruins. My attack bomber pilot brother (see above), who flew missions over North Vietnam for six weeks right after the infamous Christmas carpet bombing episode, said he never knew why they had him flying those missions because all he was doing was "making the rubble bounce".

    1. pdiddycornchips

      Wingnuts hate wars unless they start them and they continue for decades. How many contractors are working for KBR in Tripoli right now? I'm guessing very few.
      To wingnuts, this constitutes an epic fail.

    2. MissTaken

      When I was watching the coverage last night there were still buildings standing so obviously we didn't bomb enough.

      1. James Michael Curley

        Libya has lots of oil. Though most of it goes to Italy and Berlusconi uses it to massage 16 year old hookers.

        1. MichelesPantalones

          Eighteenth on the list of countries with oil. Canada has more.

          I know! Let's invade CANADA!

  4. Oblios_Cap

    “Ultimately, our intervention in Libya will be judged a success or failure based not on the collapse of the Qaddafi regime, but on the political order that emerges in its place"

    Yes. If Libya's new rulers don't let us tell them exactly how to run their country and give our companies access to any natural resources they desire to exploit, then the revolution must be judged a failure.

    And we have more bombs. Freedom!

    1. GOPCrusher

      So, basically, if the new leaders of Libya are not of northern European Xtian descent, we are going to have to tolerate Monica Crowley screeching that the Libyans overthrew one terrorist only to be ruled by other terrorists?

    2. MichelesPantalones

      When someone makes a move
      Of which we don't approve
      Who is it that always intervenes?
      UN and OAS
      They have their place, I guess
      But when in doubt —
      Send the Marines!

      We'll send them all we've got
      John Wayne and Randolph Scott
      Remember those exciting fighting scenes?
      To the halls of Tripoli
      But not to Mississippoli,
      What do we do?
      We send the Marines!

      For might makes right
      And till they've seen the light
      They've got to be protected
      All their rights respected
      Till somebody we like
      Can be elected
      Members of the corps
      All hate the thought of war
      They'd rather wipe them out by peaceful means
      Stop calling it aggression
      We hate that expression!
      We only want the world to know
      That we support the status quo
      They love us everywhere we go
      So when in doubt?
      Send the Marines!

          1. MichelesPantalones

            That's what I mean. You're so bad, you're good.

            Did you, by any chance, grow up reading Ruthless Rhymes for Heartless Homes?

    3. fuflans

      judged a success or failure based not on the collapse of the Qaddafi regime, but on the political order that emerges in its place

      yup. just like in iraq. and my money's on a more stable order emerging more quickly in libya precisely because they have to work it out for themselves (well, generally by themselves.)

      and no one is disbanding their fucking bureaucracy.

      at imperialist gunpoint.

  5. freakishlywrong

    I'm only disappointed these assholes didn't physically choke on their sour grapes and keel over.

    1. freakishlywrong

      When MTP or whatever fucking worthless Sunday show has Walnuts on next week, it would be nice if this were shown and 'splained..hahahahahhahahahahahh!! Who am I kidding; heeeennngggggggh?

      1. SorosBot

        Nah; the Walnuts-Graham-Lieberman triumvirate are very serious elder statesman who our media will never question, and they've proven their seriousness by their willingness to go, "booooom!"

          1. MichelesPantalones

            DroopyDawg won't attend because taxpayers won't be covering the cost. He's a cheap bastard.

  6. fartknocker

    I hope the Libyan ambassador to the U.S. uses his/her authority to meet with Senator McWalnuts and Senator Ham Bisquits. At the meeting, I ask that each member of Libyan entourage each bring a Libyan shoe with a steel toe and throw them at these war mongering ball sacks.

    For peace.

  7. hollywooddood

    McWalnuts and Miss Lindsey are jealous they didn't get to wear codpieces and strut their stuff on an aircraft carrier.

    Obama's war, Obama's win.

    1. freakishlywrong

      Except when Harold Ford Jr. or some other asshole comes out with the whole, "Bush laid the groundwork" argument, then the media can go back to praising this operation because they can credit a Republican. See?

      1. MichelesPantalones

        I swear to god if I hear a single person say that in my presence, I will rip their throat out.

      1. horsedreamer_1

        Imagine what it will be like, twenty years from now, when you go to see your opthamologist in Stockholm or Sydney or Tokyo, & it turns out it's Bashar al-Assad.

        1. glamourdammerung

          Well, at least Rand Paul would have a second paying member in his ophthalmologist "certification" club.

    1. MichelesPantalones

      Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb-bomb Iran
      Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb-bomb Iran

      Isn't that what the old bastid was singing back in 2008? Right before he got his ass royally kicked by the Prez?

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Hundreds of tons of Brie, in the Libyan sun … that would have Gadaffi praying for some good old-fashioned high explosives.

    2. zhubajie

      It was Sarkozy's election campaign, like the invasions of Panama and Iraq were for Bush the Elder.

    3. zhubajie

      Joking aside, quite a lot of civilians were collaterally damaged to death by NATO's high explosives. None of them will get up again once the cameras stop rolling. They are dead forever.

    1. greypanter

      War and tax cuts always pay for themselves, but librul trinkets like job training are just a drain on the treasury.

  8. Oblios_Cap

    I'm sure if the government of a foreign country deemed that our government was treating us badly that we would welcome their intervention in our affairs – plus a health dose of their firepower directed at targets in this country – to set our affairs straight for us.

  9. SayItWithWookies

    "President Obama's illegal war in Libya is a disgrace to the Constitutional separation of powers, a slap in the face to Congressional authority, a reckless foreign policy blunder, a profound misappropriation of our overextended troops, supply chains and monetary resources, and will permanently stain US credibility in the Middle East.

    What? It's over? Shit, took him long enough."

    1. HistoriCat

      That's as much of a direct hit as a bomb dropped on an aircraft carrier from 0 feet! Well done.

  10. KeepFnThatChicken

    It's so great to know that the extra taxes collected from these war conglomerates — from all this delicious profit they're making — will help pay for the deficit!

    1. MichelesPantalones

      Well, see, there's reality-challenged, and then there's reality-challenged. I mean, these two old cocksuckers are just whining that they didn't get to play with things-go-boom. Whereas Michele is whining that the chocolate rabbit and rain got into bows of ham on baconsausage egg fairies. Now do you see?

  11. iburl

    Gee whiz, McCain was all in favor of expanding ties to Lybia and sending them weapons several months ago.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      We've been delivering weapons … it's not our fault that the damned clumsy French dropped 'em.

  12. DaRooster

    I can't wait until Steve pays me for that black eye I gave him with the kickball in 4th grade… with interest I hope…

    1. DahBoner

      "We regret that this success…."

      Well hell, it's only fair!

      After all, they spent almost 8 years ignoring Bush's failures…

    1. not that Dewey

      Written like a true NYT article:

      Liberals are especially careful to make the right noises: obeisance to the uniform having become the shibboleth of patriotism, as anti-Communism used to be.

        1. not that Dewey

          Is that why we do it, NYT writer? I figured it was because the volunteer troops give selflessly and often wind up dead, or very badly damaged, for which they receive scant remuneration, and their families are left to navigate the welfare offices and food stamp lines while being separated for months or years on end, and blowhard disingenuous hawks are forever trying to reduce their benefits while claiming that we need to create more disabled veterans and that as a society we should honor their commitment to us without needing to be told why.

          But I'm just a liberal. I apparently don't know my shibboleths.

  13. Nothingisamiss

    Wait…so Obama's call to intervene was a good one? I also heard it was a bad call? But I also heard that we should do MORE WAR?! But I also heard that Obummer was trying to make war on Libya with money that we didn't have ('Cause rich peoples need pay no taxes?) This is so confusing to me, having heard all of these things from my co-workers.

    1. SorosBot

      It was Obama, so for these GOP he had to have done something wrong; they just can't agree on what.

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        No need to agree on what. If Obama did it, it's bad. Bombs on Libya, Easter eggs on the White House lawn, plaing golf while the earth is still rotating, anybody who's not Wayne Newton entertaining guests … it's always bad, whatever it is.

    2. fuflans

      this is exactly the sentiment i was going to post.

      we are such a loud nation with so little to say.

  14. mumbly_joe

    I can make war pay for itself!

    Hmm. I could swear I've heard somebody say this somewhere before… if only I could come up with a person to link to that sentiment…

  15. donner_froh

    will free up $40 billion of their money to repay us for our expenses in the conflict

    Someone doesn't understand the meaning of "their" and "our".

    Its their money, however they acquired it and our expenses however we incurred them.

  16. SheriffRoscoe

    But I thought that Lieberman was Ham-Biscuits lesbian lover? What, Lieberman decides he's done got over the hill and wants to retire and Lindsey's just going to throw him out like yesterday's ham hock? Bitch!

      I think Lieberman's jowls got so long and floppy that the cunnilingus was getting kind of messy.

    What if we drop one more really big bomb, just for the hell of it? You know, to start their new democracy off right.

  18. widestanceshakedown

    So, the current (D) president got Libya dealt with is less time than the long-gone (R) president took to lie up support for invading Iraq, which tarries on years past the (R) administration.

    Any questions?

    1. Rotundo_

      But there won't be any landings on carriers and strutting about with a codpiece (sweat sox) in a flight suit making all the pundits dampen their jammies! This wasn't a victory, there has to be peacock strutting and crowing and stuff. Without the symbolism what was the point?

    And, as the smoke rose, Col. McCain turned to Captain Graham and sadfully, wistfully murmured, "Some day, this war's gonna' end."

    1. DahBoner

      "Some day, this war's gonna' end."

      And then Col. McCain and Graham both laughed and went back to baking Jews?

  23. El Pinche

    Speaking of ham-bisquits, I almost barfed up my breakfast picturing McCain and Graham "wrecking balls."

    1. SheriffRoscoe

      Do you think that Lindsey puts his homemade prune spread on John's biscuit, you know, to keep everything going like clockwork? There. How's that for imagery?

  24. JustPixelz

    Too bad Obama couldn't have been more like Reagan, using the full weight of our airpower against Libya. Or more like Bush 43 using the full weight of our military power against Iraq and Afghanistan. Those were the kind of short, quick, victories we like.

  25. Goonemeritus

    Hey maybe this let other countries fight their own wars (with a little UN help) might be a better way to go. You know what they say, give a man a fish he will eat for a day. Load a man and all his friends up with light arms while using overwhelming air power on the fishing hole…. Anyway you get my point.

    1. Swampgas_Man

      Build a man a fire, he's warm for a night. Set a man on fire, he's warm for the rest of his life.

    2. zhubajie

      If we would leave people alone, but actually solve our own problems, then many of them would imitate us. As it is, it's just another Indian war.

    In other news, when Christine O'Donnell was asked about Libya, she said, "Stop talking about my private parts".

    1. GregComlish

      (BBC) "Some say it could have been an equatorial paradise. But for the last 41 years this land has deteriorated under the rule of an iron-fisted despot. The once-fertile valleys have grown thick with overgrowth and neglect. Pleasure has been officially banned here, denounced by the Taliban-like ruling class as a desecration and an affront to their God. Modesty is enforced by a Draconian code meant to protect residents from encroaching Western decadence. The locals are forced to wear drab cotton apparel. Shaving has also been prohibited. Few visitors have ever been allowed within the territory, but the reports of one man's improbable journey confirmed the worst…"

  27. mavenmaven

    yeah, we could have gone in there, occupied them, taken huge amounts of casualties as they try to get rid of it, and call it a big success. But it would have given blackwater a new locale for their homoerotic hazings, and thats "supporting the military".

  28. donner_froh

    Now all we need to do is outlaw the Ba'ath Party, set up a huge Amerikkkan diplomatic and intelligence operation and used trigger happy, coked-up thugs for security.

    The Iraq model in the Sahel.

  29. Serolf_Divad

    What a fucking douchebag. If something so moronic were to actually happen this is how it would play out:

    Fictional President McCain: OK, fragile new Libyan democracy just trying to stand on its own two feet for the first time. You owe us $30 billion for our troubles. Now hand it over.

    Libyan Interim Government: But we're broke. We just fought a bloody war of liberation to trow off a tyrant. We're trying to set up a democracy and there are styll loyalists out there planning revenge attacks. As for the money, Kahdaffi hid most of it. We're still trying to track it down. We need our frozen assets to ensure security.

    China: Don't worry Libyan people. What are we looking at? $30 bil? peanuts. We'll pick up the tab. now let's talk about those oil fields. We need oil, lots of it. I think we can be of benefit to each other.

    Libyan interim government: AWESOME, THANKS!!!! You know your true friends ebcause they're the ones who stick by you in your time of need.

    Obama Doctrine Emerging in New Libya; Cowbagger Diplomacy ‘Refudiated’

    The inevitable ouster of Col. Muammar Gaddafi will have been a victory for this administra­tion and the operation will provide a template for how future such troubles must be handled. It will have the added benefit of serving as the final repudiation of Cowboy Diplomacy while formally introducing the long overdue Obama Doctrine. The accomplishment will have come without the support of a loyal opposition in America. Indeed, it will have come despite a bed wetting and back stabbing disloyal opposition (see McCain, 'Old Blood and Gramps').

    This is exactly what I was afraid of when Obama killed Bin Laden. Instead of endlessly wasting trillions of dollars on futile wars, USA is actually setting meaningful geopolitical objectives and then achieving them in a reasonable timetable. Won't somebody think of our struggling military contractors before it's too late?

  32. subsum

    It's Barry's fault, as usual. First, it was his fault for launching that ill-fated foray into Libya when there are so many pressing issues at home he should have been focusing on. Now it's his fault for not having been more aggressive in helping the Libyan people get rid of ol' Muammar. There's just no way for this prezint to do anything right!

    Walnuts and his ilk wanna make me puke. What a douche.

    If Obama found the cure for cancer, perfected cold fusion, and balanced the budget tomorrow, Charles Kraphammer would be the bozo to write the talking points explaining why he should be impeached for his crimes.

    1. FakaktaSouth

      This is the kind of shit making me crazy. The "just throw this out there and some of the know-nothings will only hear how Obama did it wrong and then perception is truth and Rs are always fiscally conservative and strong on defense" and I just about want to punch McCain in the twitter. ALSO "Who is ACTually twatting McCain's deep thoughts??" she mutters, wandering off all disgusted.

      1. prommie

        Don't forget how the media ennables the "swiftboating" strategy by presenting "both sides" of every story, even if one of the sides is patently false and moronic as well. The 50% of the public who are below average in intelligence see nothing but noise and controversy, assume that where there is smoke, or at least some crackpot "expert" to present the position that the earth is flat (and out of consern for journalistic objectivity is given equal time) there must be fire, and thus, half the people now believe Obama done fucked up in Libya, dadgummit.

      Look we have to recognize that there were victories in the Bush/Obama presidency as well. It doesn't absolve Obama of any blame for the past ten years.

      I would love to see someone tip Krauthammer out of his wheelchair and kick the dogshit out of him.

    Obama 2
    Bush 0

    Although Bush caught Saddam we shouldn't have been looking for him in the first place.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Good point … we knew where Saddam was before we invaded, so what's the big deal about doing it the hard way?

      Cheney could have just invited Saddam out for a bit of duck hunting, and we'd have saved a trillion or two.

    Lose an election. Bitch about everything you can think of 24/7 every day after that. What a hero!

    I get so mad when my neighbors stop me from taking a sledgehammer to their garage door. Now how am I supposed to charge them my very highly hourly rate for demolition work? And also for a new sledgehammer?

    A Vietnam veteran wants to know why we didn't just throw more airplanes at the problem like we did in Vietnam.

    In my heart, it feels like Franco is on the run and revolutionaries have taken Madrid.

    Should I twatter that thought to Graham (R-Closet) and give him something to turn that frown upside down?

    Ham biscuits himself was conspicuously silent, considering he had a mouthful of Ham Biscuit, and McCain Goober, also, too, as well as…

    Anybody who would pick Sarah Palin as a VP running mate is too fucking stupid to be quoted anywhere. Ever again.

    It's the traitorous Republicans 2nd favorite game – try to frame any positive accomplishment of Obama as a failure.

    Oh yeah, their favorite game – destroying our economy.

    It is a great comfort to me that our Nation has Statesmen such as these to keep track of things and say important shit like this.

  43. MichelesPantalones

    I used to wonder if John McCain was awake while saying all these things that can only be attributed to having a particularly maggotty cheese in place of a brain. Now I know that the maggot activity can make it seem that the brain is actually awake, alive, and functioning. Like a jumping cheese.

    from wikipedia.org:
    "Gaddafi met with then US secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice in 2008, where she pressed him to complete his payout for the Lockerbie bombings. Libya and the United States finalized its 20-year standoff over the Lockerbie bombings in 2008 when Libya paid into a compensation fund for victims of the Lockerbie bombing, 1986 Berlin discotheque bombing, and to American victims of the 1989 UTA Flight 772 bombing. In exchange, president Bush signed Executive Order 13477 restoring the Libyan government's immunity from terrorism-related lawsuits and dismissing all of the pending compensation cases in the United States."

    Little Mac and Lindsey want to take a mulligan on this one and start all over again, this time spending a lot of American lives and money, the way it should have been done in the first place. China giggles.

    If they're bombing Texas/Oklahoma, I'll wave a sign that sez "Stop the bombing as soon as convenient!"

  47. glamourdammerung

    I am disappointed that we did not put Gaddafi between a television camera and McCain, Graham, and Lieberman.

  48. glamourdammerung

    And once again, the Republicans show they are willing to badmouth the U.S. just to disparage President Obama. Why do they hate America?

    does anyone know if you can get ham biscuits in either chicago or los angeles?

    i am going to stop requesting ham biscuit postings and just see if i can find some goddamn ham biscuits where i am.

  50. lochnessmonster

    Just shows how insane McCain is..Does he REALLY think we will ever see any money from any of these countries?

  51. smitallica

    Because if Vietnam taught us anything, it's that massive bombing campaigns always work, do nothing to strengthen the resolve of the people we're fighting, and result in very few civilian casualties.

    You all realize that most of the problems of the Middle East stem from partitioning the Ottoman Empire about 90 years ago? An intact Ottomania would be as prosperous as India or China.
