NBA Seasson, Afghanistan and Pakistan

Posted by madjillmom on November 28, 2011

I sure appreciate PresBO coming out with a statement on the announcement that there will be an NBA season starting on Christmas.  I am so relieved to know this.  So happy that PresBO will have some recreation after the first of the year.  Something to do with those long boring hours running down the Republicans.

So don’t worry if you have someone currently in Afghanistan, someone you love who might not have access to the supplies they need to continue the war in Afghanistan.  Don’t worry that they might not get the food, ammo, gasoline, and healthcare the troops might need.  Remember, the NBA games will be available to watch while your worry.

Wasn’t this President the one who understood Pockeestan?  He vacationed their during college and that was used to boost his foreign policy bona fides.  If a member of my family were in Afghanistan, I would want PresBO to speak up about the supply lines to Afghanistan and not the shortened NBA season.  No wonder he thinks were aren’t strong, our President is more concerned with the NBA (rich guys playing ball than winning the war in Afghanistan.

Bin Laden Death Pictures

Posted by madjillmom on May 3, 2011

Lots and lots of talk about whether the White House should put out the pictures of a dead Usama Bin Laden.  I have no doubt that it was indeed him.  And I am sure he is dead.  Put out the picture for those who don’t believe and want verification.  I will certainly take a look, but not to verify.

If Muslims are offended by it, so be it.  They lost the high ground when they dragged the bodies of American soldiers through Somalia.  They lost the high ground when they hung the bodies of American contractors off a bridge in Fallujah, Iraq.  They lost the argument when they chopped off Danny Pearl’s head on video tape.  Don’t desecrate the body, but don’t be fooled into thinking that not showing the dead man wins us any friends.  Islamic terrorists worldwide will not drop their arms next week because we don’t publish them.

Publishing the pictures might serve as a reminder what happens to you when you plot and fund a terrorist attack that kills almost 3000 Americans.

Three man on the street interviews in Pakistan showed that 2 out of three sympathized with Bin Laden.  I guess these people thought it was ok to do stuff to Americans, but will use this as an excuse to hate us all the more.

Foreign Aid with Strings Attached

Posted by madjillmom on May 2, 2011

Pakistan is complaining about the raid that killed UBL.  They feel it was a was a violation of their sovereignty.  OK, fair point.  I feel so sorry for them.  While they were out cashing the check from the American taxpayers, we went in and conducted a military raid that offed UBL.

You know how you get those checks in the mail, but if you deposit them there is some writing on the back of the check that starts a service or a contract so the money isn’t really free money.  That is what we need to do with foreign aid.  Slip a few paragraphs onto the check that tells the recipient country that if they harbor muslim jihadists or terrorists and they accept the aid, the US reserves the right to swoop in and do things like this.

Explain this to Pakistan so they understand that the BS they have been handing us for years is no longer acceptable.  In fact, explain there will be no more funds with strings attached until about twenty military and ISI guys are turned over to the US for aiding UBL while he lived and laughed in Pakistan for these many years.
