The Nacilbupera Guzzle

Whoever examines with attention the history of the dearths and famines … will find, I believe, that a dearth never has arisen from any combination among the inland dealers in corn, nor from any other cause but a real scarcity, occasioned sometimes perhaps, and in some particular places, by the waste of war, but in by far the greatest number of cases by the fault of the seasons; and that a famine has never arisen from any other cause but the violence of government attempting, by improper means, to remedy the inconveniences of a dearth. (Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations IV.5.44)

We HAVE Forgotten Part 2

Nacilbupera is not alone in raising the "five-bell" alarm in regards to Obama's indifference towards protecting our country from terrorism and setting us up for another attack. Nacilbupera, like a majority of Americans, does not want the blood of his fellow patriots on our hands for not having rung the bell long and loud. Indeed (see also Newsbusters, below) Rasmussen reports that 58% of Americans agree with Nacilbupera that the release of CIA documents regarding interrogation endangers national security. But national security for Nacilbupera has never been a matter of a public opinion poll and frankly, we would yet sound the alarm even if we were in the minority. Jodi Miller also echoes Nacilbupera's thoughts from Part 1 about beheading not being comparable to waterboarding:

Nacilbupera is flabbergasted how Obama changed the correct term "war on terror" to the complex verbiage "overseas contingency operation". (FoxNews) Give me a break! First of all, how is going after mastermind terrorist Bin Laden with his cells of terrorists harbored and partially trained in the USA taking over of domestic flights and crashing into national landmarks--just what do you mean overseas??? This is a war against terror and its being fought in North and South America and all over the globe. We are at war; the terrorist have declared holy jihad against us and have forsworn to destroy us, our families, and our freedoms.

The word "contingency" has worse implications. Merriam-Webster has two definitions; both have disturbing implications. The first definition, "an event that may but is not certain to occur" implies that the terrorists may or may not (uncertainty) strike (event) against the United States. Um hello? hello??? It will take only one successful plot of the many planned against us for the terrorists to succeed. We know they have multiple plans against us, partly thanks to waterboarding. The second definition could imply something more sinister: "something liable to happen as an adjunct to or result of something else". This gets back to Obama's radical religious Black Liberation theology beliefs that 9/11 (something liable to happen) happened because of America's supposed acts of terrorism (because of something else). Obama's former preacher Wright articulated this point well when a mere 5 days after 9/11 he ranted: "We've bombed Hiroshima, we've bombed Nagasaki, we've nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon and we never batted an eye. . . . We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant. Because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost." (Chicago Tribune)

Finally, the term operation. Operation implies a brevity of time and/or scope as contrasted to war. For example, the famed "Operation Market Garden" of WWII took place over several days and was found as one arena within a larger war context. Obama's increasing the troop size in Afghanistan (which Nacilbupera supports) to 60,000 over an undefined period of at least months hardly seems to delimit itself to an "operation." Nay, this is a war and Obama is playing false semantics to push ahead his progressive domestic agenda and push any thought of terrorism from the minds of Americans. Nacilbupera will NOT be calling this a misnomered "overseas contingency operation" but instead correctly referring to it as a "war on terror."

Finally, just in case you have thought you have seen every 9/11 clip and tribute, Nacilbupera encountered this one which we rate "must see." We reflected about what was said and done not many years ago and contrasted it to the radical left-wing media of today. This also personally renewed for Nacilbupera the emotional heartstrings of what we stand for as a country. Enjoy.
