Let's Make Life a Little Easier for Them
You've probably noticed that those nice people in Middle Eastern countries are rioting over some obscure little video that somebody made here in America. Or, maybe he didn't. Or, maybe it doesn't even exist. But, one thing we know for sure is that the rioting started in Benghazi, Lybia, and also simultaneously in Cairo, Egypt, on...of all days...September 11th!
Those folks we hired to run things in Washington, D.C., tell us the rioting was due to the video, the existence of which was made known this past May. Hmmm. It apparently takes several months for knowledge of an Internet video to make its way to that part of the world. Maybe the Internet streaming occurs via camel. Or maybe the Administration is lying through its collective teeth about the cause of this latest outbreak of Muslim rage. Maybe, in fact, its because Obama and Company spiked the football early and often about the unceremonious dispatch of Osama bin Ladin. Maybe its to celebrate the anniversary of 9/11. You think? Which do you believe is a more likely and plausible rationale?
Well, I'm here to tell you that the unrest and rioting has now spread to Indonesia and India, and 25 other countries are now involved. Apparently, Obama's incessant apologizing for America's past "mistakes" didn't really feed the bulldog. Maybe the only thing the Islamic "religion of peace" types understand is strength. Maybe instead of apologizing we should be kicking ass and taking names.
Are you familiar with that stanza in the Marine Corps (not "corpse," by the way, as Mr. Obama would prefer to say) Hymn that goes, "...From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli." That "shores" thing refers to Tripoli, Lybia, where pirates by the thousands were interdicting shipping back in the 1700s. One Mr. Thomas Jefferson was President, and he decided to do something about it. He rallied our Marines and our sailors and our ships and sent them all to North Africa. He instructed them to kill every living, breathing thing that looked like it might be a part of the problem. They did. And we didn't have another Muslim-related problem for two hundred and fifty years.
So, fellow Americans, I suggest you contact your elected representative and let them know you'd like them to get tough on this situation. Tell them to let the Golfer-in-Chief know that he'd better do something about this, and right now, or he'll need to call U-Haul come January.
But, in the meantime, I'm starting a new business. I'll be offering pre-burnt American flags for export to those parts of the world. As Rahm Emanuel would say, "There's no sense letting a crisis go to waste!"
