Chuck Hagel proves the perfect pick for Jimmy Carter II

And we mean it!

And we mean it!

Obama’s choice for Secretary of defense cancels antimissile test out of concern that it will hurt Kim Jung Un’s feelings.

Reached on the golf course, our president was sanguine. “No problem – I’ve implemented out super-secret, double-dare system instead – works for all madmen, whether armed with pistols, semi-automatics or nukes. Trust me on this.”

    Yes, a good leftist never risks angering our overseas enemies, but republicans, on the other hand, can be attacked without discretion.
    I loved it when Reagan called the Soviets an “evil empire” and the liberal kooks all freaked. That’s when I really began to understand them.

  2. When I saw this headline, I was sure it was by The Onion. Alas and alack. Nope. We were in DC last week and walked among the monuments. We skipped the Korean War one but in hindsight, that probably was more important than the stupidly ugly WWII one since I predict we’ll soon be duking it out with Korea again. Because we bypassed it, we felt it important to learn more about the Korean war, me merely a baby of two when the USA sent troops. I don’t know a soul who served in Korea and you so rarely hear about those vets.

    History.com has some good reference material, better than Wiki and better even than some websites dedicated to the Korean War. This couple of paragraphs is pretty informative:

    This was something that President Truman and his advisers decidedly did not want: They were sure that such a war would lead to Soviet aggression in Europe, the deployment of atomic weapons and millions of senseless deaths. To General MacArthur, however, anything short of this wider war represented “appeasement,” an unacceptable knuckling under to the communists.

    As President Truman looked for a way to prevent war with the Chinese, MacArthur did all he could to provoke it. Finally, in March 1951, he sent a letter to Joseph Martin, a House Republican leader who shared MacArthur’s support for declaring all-out war on China–and who could be counted upon to leak the letter to the press. “There is,” MacArthur wrote, “no substitute for victory” against international communism.

    For Truman, this letter was the last straw. On April 11, the president fired the general for insubordination.

    Lemme know when he sequesters all the jet fuel wasted flying B-52s and B-2s back and forth to that shithole.
