War Cry

Not his boots of course...nor the boots of anyone who also ramps up for ever more war in the Forever War.
"At the end of the day, I think it's going to take more than airstrikes to drive them out of there," Boehner said Sunday. "At some point, somebody's boots have to be on the ground."

Asked if those boots had to be American, Boehner said, "We have no choice."
Unleash the "sophisticated" sophistry:
"These are barbarians," Boehner said. "They intend to kill us. And if we don't destroy them first, we're going to pay the price."

Hmm. They're five thousand miles away and without a navy or an air force. And there's about 15,000 of them.

How exactly do they all get here to destroy us? Pan Am? The Princess Line?

I really, really want to see them cross the Atlantic in a fleet of Toyota pick-ups.

And Boner needs to take a deep breath, sit down and just shut the fuck up. But, then, that's good advice to him almost any day of the week.

Fear lets you control people while you rob them blind.
Endless war ahead.

So I've heard.

They're ALL on the Same Sophist, Company TEAM : Boner, burning Bushs, Ner0bama, Slick/Hilly et al; AND Finally. "the Definition of ISIS" : US ! 'Al Sham' is simply the Oceaniacs' latest "Goldstein" bogey, RIGHT Out of 1984 (justifies All USraeli PNAC attacks across the entire Eurasian 'Megiddo' front from Nukraine thru Gaza)!

Thanks to Republican gerrymandering, Boehner is our Rep, and you should see his election ads on TV. "We love John Boehner, because he's one of us" and by all the white faces in the ad, I guess they're right. No minorities in those ads, by golly.

The message is clear: white, straight, rich people love John Boehner.

And one more thing, Mr Boehner, those boots on the ground you are so happy to send off happen to have the feet of human beings inside them. You are so cavalier about sending our men and women off to fight another unwinnable war. It's time you took off you golf cleats and put boots of your own on, you asshole.

What's the Cheney Carpetbagging Daughter doing? (The one who was so reactionary even WYOMING wouldn't vote her in.) I want to see her PARTATROOPING into Syria, then maybe the war pigs' oinkings will have some gravitas.

Donnah - I really liked your comment about feet in the boots, not to mention the young folks attached to those feet. Thanks.

After all there's a fifty fifty chance your kids' going to grow up to be a Moocher so john Boehner thinks is better that he or she should get killed in Iraq.
