Daily it becomes more difficult to believe any working brain cells exist in DC. Or over in VA at the Pentagon.
America has this cohort of incredibly naive and ignorant people called “Democrats.” These people actually believe that providing food and medical aid to an enemy killing our people, fighting AGAINST the military aid and weaponry we provide to THEIR enemy, is a good idea.
You know that old saw, “That which doesn’t kill me makes me stronger”?
We are strengthening our enemies. We are making THEM stronger.
YOUR tax dollars are providing food and medical aid to ISIS. Yeah – same guys Obama tells people who are foolish enough to believe him that we are going to “degrade and destroy;” an enemy we are feeding and medicating.
Now, the ignorant among us – Democrats – insist that we can’t let people die of wounds or lack of medicine or get sick from lack of vaccination… or starve … just because they are our enemies. Nope. Can’t do that.
Think of all the medical aid we parachuted into Germany in 1945.
Think of the food we airdropped to island bases across the Pacific as we island-hopped our way to Japan – and the aid we provided Japan.
We couldn’t have their people dying of injuries or wounds we gave them, right? Or just starve to death because we were torpedoing their supply ships… SO THEY COULND’T FIGHT AND KILL US, could we? We had to ensure they were well-fed enough to fight, and kill OUR guys, RIGHT????
In the late 1950s and early 1960s, America provided food aid to North Vietnam, 100-lb bags of rice with which to win hearts & minds. What happened? The North Vietnamese nicely stenciled over the printing on each bag “Provided by the USA” with Vietnamese wording that it was provided by the VC. Americans now are doing the same thing. ISIS uses this to feed people who now think ISIS is feeding and medicating them.
American leadership is so appallingly insecure that first we have to have everyone like us. I don’t care if our enemy likes us. If our enemy likes us, we are doing it wrong. I – along with every other normal adult whose nation is under attack – cares only one thing about the enemy: That we are killing him as productively as possible, that we are doing everything we can to starve and kill them into submission so they STOP KILLING OUR GUYS. That they become so low on supplies of food, water, electricity, bandages, medicine… that they surrender.
THAT IS THE ENTIRE POINT OF WAR.
But… but… but…. It’s not the fault of the KIDS and the WOMEN that their men are fighting, right?
So what? Every dollar ISIS has to spend feeding its people is a dollar less to be spent on bullets, RPGs, butcher knives. And every dollar of food we send our enemies…. is another butcher knife, another hundred bullets, a down payment on another RPG… that will be used TO KILL US.
But that’s too – I think “adult” is the right word – for the Left to deal with.
But WHY is the GOP in the House going along with this absurdity? The Executive Branch cannot spend ONE DIME not appropriated by the House.
Which means… that the Pentagon is using money appropriated by the House for bullets & guns, instead to send medical aid and food to the enemy, ISIS, while that same Pentagon is sending military aid to the Kurds to defeat THE SAME PEOPLE IT IS FEEDING.
So we have General officers allowing money appropriated to KILL THE ENEMY to be used instead to FEED THE ENEMY. And the Generals are not quitting en masse.
The absurdity overwhelms. If you put this in a Hollywood script, not even HOLLYWOOD would be stupid enough to greenlight it; no way to suspend that level of disbelief.
And, as everyone seems to be admitting to themselves that this will be a 30-years’ war, every child to whom we are sending food will grow up to be sending bullets back to us. Or carve off the head of another American.
WAR is WAR. You KILL your enemy. There are NO innocent civilians in a battle space.
If the Left is going to continue to do this, then the Right just needs to quit, for it is OUR kids going out and fighting, killing and dying in combat NO ONE ON OUR SIDE WANTS TO WIN.
This is a serious war. We can end it with a few nuclear weapons. There is NO mature alternative. We are choosing now NOT to defeat our enemy, instead to keep sending out our kids for 30 years in the pretense that, evidently, Islam will have an Enlightenment spontaneously in a few decades, something – reason – from which they have been in retreat for four Centuries.
If we don’t just destroy – as in annihilate – them soon, if we choose not to use our most productive weapons to defeat our most serious enemy, we might as well lay down our arms and accept a Shariah future, because that is exactly what we will get – AFTER we have expended tens of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars NOT killing our enemies, but instead making them stronger.
You don’t FEED your enemy in war. You don’t MEDICATE your enemy in war. And you don’t let your ENEMY feed and medicate his overseas ALLIES in war, either.
If you still haven’t grasped who the real enemy is, I’ll help you out: The world’s biggest enemy of freedom and liberty is not islam. It is the Left. The enemy of YOUR kids and YOUR future are Democrats in YOUR government and ball-less Generals in YOUR military. And Republicans in Congress authorizing this spending.
Wars are fought because the behavior of one side is egregious enough that the other side, having unsuccessfully tried to talk them into better behavior, has decided to defeat them, to kill those whose behavior is so bad it can no longer be tolerated by civilized people. Whether that is overrunning countries and gassing Jews, or overrunning countries and beheading Christians. The POINT of war is to KILL your enemies.
You WIN a war when the enemy is totally, utterly defeated and completely dependent on the conqueror for food, water, medical aid, electricity… everything.
But FEEDING the ENEMY in WARTIME?
The enemy is in Washington DC, and it is killing your kids, your freedom and your nation’s future.
