Bloviating Zeppelin: The Nature of War

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The Nature of War

I was pondering this a few days ago after hearing some folks from a local Air America station complain that President Bush started the war in Iraq completely by himself, for no reason whatsoever. The caller had somehow conveniently managed to forget UN Resolution 1441 (adopted by the UN on 11-08-2002), and the fact that the bulk of Democrats had signed off on the invasion of Iraq -- including Clinton, Biden, et al.

This was the same station where understanding, loving, all-embracing Randi Rhodes stated that she was certain Bush had his hand in the toppling of of the Twin Towers on 09-11-01. I'm sorry boys and girls, but that one statement simply and completely eliminates all veracity for that host and for the network that pays her -- and the overarching philosophy that would allow an idea like that to foment.

(Yes, I occasionally listen to LW Air America-type radio, read the Daily Kos and peruse the pages of The New Republic to keep up with the witless thought du jour.)

That said, what is the true Nature of War now and in the future?

I submit that the "wars" we knew, WWI and WWII, were the exceptions and not the present and future rules. From now on, any time this country, I postulate, openly declares a War on another country we will thence be talking about "throw weights," MIRVs, EMPs and megadeaths.

Absent that deadly threshold, there will be "wars" (small "w") in an attempt to prevent "Wars" (large "W"). And the size of the first letter will make all the difference in the world.

We are most definitely in a "war" with Islamists, Militant Islam, however you wish to couch or phrase it. As I wrote a few days ago, Iraq is merely one front or campaign in the continuing fight. For those who think that, once we "win" in Iraq, "all will be well," are grossly mistaken. If we were to pull out completely tomorrow and satisfy all LW Democratic Capitulists (LWDCs), Islamists would STILL plot and plan to take the war, AGAIN, to our domestic soil.

It shall not stop. It shall never stop. Islam and Islamists have been emboldened by the wavering and fluctuous nature of Western Civilization and the fact that our individual country regimes change like many of us change underwear.

There is "War," which we clearly should try to avoid at all costs, and there are "wars" which shall be ongoing and in many venues. Out of Iraq? Fine, sure, go ahead.

But do not think for a moment that you have even remotely eliminated the threat.

You will have done naught but embolden it.

I stumbled across your blog on the way to another page. I don't plan on visiting again. You're a very angry person. You waste a lot of energy on it too. Why not try doing something productive with your energy? Instead you rant on this blog that the only people that see either agree with your extremist positions or "stumble" across it on their way to another website. I guess no one can force compassion into a person like you.

Ms. Anonymous:

Thank you for your kind and salient comment, and the immense amount of thought provided therein. Thanks for visiting and come back again. Luckily, I have much time to spend on my blog, crafting each post with my vast and copious amounts of energy which I choose to expend here, amongst other places.

I fear that my compassion is reserved, alas, for those who deserve it. And yes, I get to choose to whom I believe it is deserved because, after all, this is America, we have freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom of expression. I thank God every day that I live in this wonderful nation. I am over, shall we say, the age of 50 which has provided me with the requisite training, education and experience to see the world in something more than a puerile, naive light. I am, if nothing else, a realist.

Thanks for taking the time to comment!
