Mere 1% of Americans Can Correctly Identify Nation’s Top Global Enemy

Favored pick “Iran” won this season’s Gallup poll for “America’s Top Enemy” by its highest-ever margin, wow! A full third of Americans picked Iran as their most dreaded bogeyman this year (up from a quarter last year) for, eh, some sort of reason. Perhaps a follow-up “why” question might have been interesting or informative here, pollsters? Nope. Gallup cheated and filled in the essay section on its own without Americans’ help, as may be noted from the conspicuous lack of JEE-HAD and TERRORIZM mentions in their concluding analysis to explain Iran’s ongoing dominance in this award category: “Iran’s continued public announcements of its growing nuclear capabilities, its threats of war with U.S. ally Israel, and the possibility that Iran could disrupt the flow of oil out of the Middle East and further affect domestic oil and gas prices no doubt all contribute to Americans’ negative views of the country.” Hm. Well to be fair, by this logic that we ought to freak out over the country that’s doing the best job of constantly threatening new wars and buying scary new weapons and driving up oil prices, the nation that Americans should really fear most is, ha ha, their own. So what percentage of Americans managed to arrive at this conclusion? (HINT: the headline gives it away.) Read more on Mere 1% of Americans Can Correctly Identify Nation’s Top Global Enemy…

John McCain And Lindsey Graham’s Old BFF Muammar Gaddafi Is Dead

We’ll probably do more on this shortly, but for the moment: one can only imagine the quantity of wet Depends flying around the McLieberHamBiscuits team offices in celebration right now — crazy old murderous dictator Muammar Qaddafi is super duper dead as a door nail after NTC fighters found him hiding in a drainage pipe.¬†Yes, that same dictator that America’s three favoritest “war forever” Senate neocons John McCain, Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham once upon a couple years ago loved enough to attend his tea times and urge easing of relations with Libya, that very one! But NATO needed a place to drop its bombs somewhere before they passed their “use before” date or whatever,¬†although according to Walnuts & Co. they still didn’t use nearly enough of them. Now, how about some of that nice refined crude Libya has stashed around as a thank-you present? [The Guardian] Read more on John McCain And Lindsey Graham’s Old BFF Muammar Gaddafi Is Dead…

U.S. Military Preparing For ‘Humanitarian’ Intervention In Libya

The Pentagon has announced that it is “repositioning” U.S. war ships, aircraft and “nearly 2,000 Marines” in the Mediterranean Sea, to “provide for flexibility [when we invade Libya].” According to America’s top diplomat Hillary Clinton, the United States and its aircraft carriers believe that “there will be the need for support for humanitarian intervention. We also know that there will probably, unfortunately, be the need for rescue missions.” It’s also very unfortunate that the U.N. Security Council’s recent sanctions against Libya include a bizarre clause which grants immunity from war crime prosecutions to all Security Council-authorized interventions in Libya. Haha, so yeah, this authorized intervention could be “a friendly U.N. peacekeeping force, sent to distribute hobo beans and bottled water.” It could also be “2,000+ Marines providing cover fire while Navy SEALs rescue the oil fields, Mission Accomplished.” (We report, you decide!) Support the Troops, Remember the Maine, Loose Lips Sink Ships, Blah Blah Blah, War Forever.
