#3  boost support for the region's young democracies

In other words pay the Danegeld, more money for the Muzzies.

Oh, where the he11 does she see democracy involved in this?

#4 Did we get involved in the Revolutions of 1848? No. Then again, no one really understands history anymore. It's all just a lot of propaganda and indoctrination 'studies'. How do you know where you are going, if you don't know where you've been? /rhet question

#5 Did we get involved in the Revolutions of 1848?

No, but we got a lot of really talented German immigrants.

#7 SoS Clinton is so versed in history, cultures, and sensitivity. Just like in her viewing of the painting of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, March 27, 2009.

Delta Bravo.

#8 there seems to be no grasp within the State Dept of what government by Sharia law really means. "democracy" is meaningless if clerics are running the country. that's pretty much where these Arab Spring countries are headed. there is no "middle ground" .... this is not like winning the vote in Iowa. :-)

#9 So what if we choose not to embrace the Arab Spring?

#10 Personally, I prefer plan B:

Step 1: Rubble the places of Muslim infestation.

Step 2: Make the rubble bounce.

Rinse, repeat.


Yeah, sure, there are a lot of Mussies to vaporize - but to those who say "The population is too large to eradicate" I can only say: "The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step".

Time is going to pass anyway - we might as well move through time with an ever-diminishing population of Muslin barbarians. Promote LTC Dooley, give him a Theater Battle Group, and tell him to get to work.

Otherwise, a hundred years down the road, a handful of wretched survivors, trying to avoid annihilation by the Caliphate, will be muttering into their gruel "What in the f#$k were those idiots back at the turn of the last century THINKING when they allowed this pestilence to grow, unchecked, from scattered regional infestations, into the dominant global menace of menace of 2100.

Hint for the "liberals" of 2011: Your priorities will no longer be "global warming, tree hugging, LGBT equality, ADA violation enforcement, and free contraceptives".

They don't call this RANTburg for nothing.

#11 we don't have to "must" anything.
Clinton forgets that she works for us, it's not the other way around. Time for her to go
