KOC: Ding Dong bin Laden’s Dead

After Seal Team Six burst into Osama bin Laden’s Pakistani compound and put a couple of rounds in the terrorist’s eye – blowing his brains out the back of his head prior to feeding his body to the fish – many of you may have felt it was cruel or untoward to celebrate the violent death of a fellow human being.  Just kidding.  You bring the tequila, PJTV’s Klavan on the Culture is bringing the chips and salsa and we are so partying down in this week’s fun-filled episode!

Bin Laden’s hand-picked successor, Justin Folk, was glad to supply the visuals.

    Seriously,  a politically divided nation cannot hope to fight let alone win a war.

    Still, laughing.  Good points driven home. I would disagree about justice though.  It’s not about justice, it’s about combat.  The fact that he’s still sending emails (of a sort) and planning strikes requires a response, a military response.  The fact that he’s hiding in a million dollar mansion makes is more shamefuil for him, not less necessary.  There seems to be a huge misunderstanding between civilian justice and military strategy in public perception.  You can’t put every guy you face across the trenches through a civilian court before you pull the trigger.  The fact that these guys hide behind women in mansions in residential areas and target women and children makes it complicated but it’s still war and the public opinion needs to catch up with that.  You have trials and courts after the war is done.  During a war you kill the bad guys.  The ones who started throwing planes are usually the bad guys.

    1967 . . .

    Dear President Obama,

    Reading your speech today was to read the words that I always knew you believed, but could never voice prior to the election of 2008; as with most of your long held beliefs, if you were honest with the American people then they would not elect you to collect stray dogs.  I had to watch as people who share my faith vote for you in droves.  It reminded me of something that I can’t mention now for danger of being labeled as something I am not.  Suffice it to say it never ceases to amaze me how otherwise intelligent people can be converted into automatons during vote harvesting time.  But that’s how we ended up with a contest between you and Senator McCain.  I cannot believe that all the J Streets in the world can provide you the cover needed to generate the same support this time around, then again if you are advocating for this now, you must be in far worse political trouble than even I can imagine, I wonder if an LBJ day is not in your future?  “I will not accept nor seek the nomination of my party for the . . .”  Maybe you should practice so you don’t need the teleprompter.

    The present borders of Israel are the result of successfully fending off attacks that neighboring countries saw fit to perpetrate on the newly formed nation of Israel.  Which was formed as a reaction to the greatest mechanized effort to end Judaism from the continent of Europe by Hitler, and his murderous following.  Israel has to maintain it’s current borders to keep future attacks from, on the one hand, occurring, and on the other hand, from being fought on the same land it lives on.  All the while keeping its’ population safe from everything from rifle fire as well a missiles, and suicide bombers.  In order to meet this objective it could not alter its current borders.  Especially in the light of recent events of Egypt falling to what will eventually become another country guided by radical islam, armed now with our tanks and planes.  The notion that such a nation founded out of the ashes of evil from histories worst crime should in any way be made to sacrifice anything is near criminal, and borders on the insane.

    In reading your speech you give yourself every opportunity to be right in the eyes of historians.  Too much in fact.  One wonders what you really care about: what people think about you, or the notion of not being blamed for a world worse off for your stewardship of it?  Why do you believe that muslims will, can, or even want to be reformed from without when in their most hardened political States believe in using nuclear weapons in a first strike capacity, if only they could figure out how.  They are a patient foe, and you think the technological advances of the day will some how woo them from their destiny with murder?  I don’t think so.  I know we are real good at what we do, but evil has the advantage here.  It takes me a second to realize this when looking at our modern, and dare I say it, socially liberal society; and theirs based on the bondage of woman and the commitment to be governed by a system of law best suited to the dust bin of history.  Am I being too judgmental for you?  My apologies.  But you can bet that islam is in no mood to be reformed from without.  Not by a long shot.  Like an angry drunk in a bar all it wants is to do is stay put on it’s perch, unreformed and unrepentant, for what it has done in the name of Allah.  

    World War One was known as the “war to end all wars.”  It was fought with armaments that were the chemical descendants of Alfred Nobel’s work in explosives.  Essentially a pacifist who hated war gave war it’s greatest weapon.  Of which you are, uncharacteristically, the winner of his prize.  As time has worn on we have new and more deadly was to fight wars.  You and I will likely live to see that horrible day.  Because man has not proven himself able to resist that temptation to harm another for sport or gain.  Whether you are an unarmed housekeeper in the sights of a violent socialist full of himself, or a defenseless child from a pedophile, or a nation that chooses not work, but war, to further it’s national goals.  History is littered with this reality.  A future generation will wonder why we tried to do what we have done only to provoke what we most want to avoid.

    Funny how that happens.  Funny, I’m not laughing, though in 18 months you won’t be either.

    Respectfully,

    Joe Doakes

    Imagine if Bush had done every thing exactly the same.

    Would the press not be raising serious assassination questions?

    As usual, excellent.  While I disagree with Mr. K’s position, I can not argue with his eloquence in making it.

     HEY BARRY,……

     “So while the core issues of the conflict must be negotiated, the basis of those negotiations is clear: a stable Mexico and a secure United States, whose sovereignty and laws are respected. Israel believes that negotiations should result in two stable and secure states, with permanent borders and bi-national support upholding the laws controlling crossings and immigration. The borders of the United States and Mexico should be based on the 1848 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognised borders are established for both states. The Mexican people must have the right to rid their country of the plaque of drug cabals and government corruption themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign, stable state. 

    As for security, every state has the right to self-defence, and the United States must be able to defend itself – by itself – against any threat, including unlawful immigration, drug trafficking, terrorism, and gang violence . Provisions must also be robust enough to prevent a resurgence of border lawlessness; to stop the infiltration of drugs and illegal immigrants; and to provide effective border security. The full and phased in border control and joint task forces to police and patrol the region to protect lawful residents and property owners should be coordinated with the assumption that border security and human dignity are shared responsibilities.

    These principles provide a foundation for negotiations. Mexicans should know the territorial outlines of their new, enlarged state; Americans should know that their basic security concerns will be met. I know that these steps alone will not resolve this conflict. Two wrenching and emotional issues remain: the future of San Francisco and the fate of illegal aliens and their children. But moving forward now on the basis of territory and security provides a foundation to resolve those two issues in a way that is just and fair, and that respects the rights and aspirations of Americans and Mexicans.

    That is the choice that must be made – not simply in this conflict, but across the entire region – a choice between hate and hope; between the shackles of the past, and the promise of the future. It’s a choice that must be made by leaders and by people, and it’s a choice that will define the future of a region.”

    US citizens danced in the streets to celebrate the killing of one
    terrorist mastermind who was responsible for planning at least seven
    terrorist operations against US citizens and soldiers.

    Muslim extremists danced in the streets to celebrate the killing of three thousand INNOCENT people.

    See the difference?

    Mr. President;
    As an addendum to my colleague Mr. Doakes, I would like to ask you to contact Mayor Emanuel in Chicago immediately in order to begin negotiations on your living arrangements post-2012. Given your present seat of power, I’m sure that it will be easy for you to evict the present occupants of your and Michelle’s residence in South Chicago in order to begin preparing the house for the Secret Service detachment that will also accompany you and your family there. The size of that detachment, however, will be decided by either President Cain or VP Bachmann at that time; your requests will be considered, but theirs will be the final decision … including whether the detachment will be armed or not.

    May I also suggest, sir, that you consider keeping an extra set of golf clubs at the front door after relocation on January 19th, 2012.
