What should we do? Be heroes? This is The Non-Heroic Age. What else could a war possibly be, where there are "no American boots on the ground". Where there is no danger, there is no virtue. It's not a good thing, in itself, to risk life and limb. But it is necessary, for heroism. What a bother. Fine. We don't need no heroes. In the safe nannycam world currently being constructed for us, we need only consume, be silent and die. No, wait, that's a cynical lefty observation upon 1970s Corporate America. Needs to be amended. Recycle, conform, and be a hypocrite. Mankind without chests. Bosoms only, here, please, male and female, if I may indulge in such archaic vernacular.
Let us concern ourselves with dictators and their anarchy. Before we turn to the odd-man-out Assyrian of the Sarin gas (supplied complements of the former Saddam Hussain), might we call to mind the fact of chattel slavery, throughout Africa and the Arab world? Where Christian women, and children, herd goats from dawn to dusk, hunger and thirst and sweat and flies, and then get to be beaten, and raped as often as the Moslim master and his favorites can manage to achieve an erection. So what. It's not in the news, before our eyes, occupying for the nonce our minute attention spans. Ethnic little girl slaves raped daily in the Arab desert? Ho hum. A dictator used poison gas! Now that's news!
Nations should act in their national interest. Governments are not benevolent associations. We've covered this ground already, in our American slippers. So what is it to us if The Assyrian gases HIS OWN PEOPLE? (Don't you just love how that's always emphasized? I just don't see how that makes it worse. Governments have the power and right to apply a police action, as much as to defend or extend their borders. Duh. Easy cheesy.) The US has no pressing national interest in the internal affairs of Syria. I won't defend the statement -- I expect you to see the point. Sadly, there is another necessity that demands our action.
The Idiot drew a line in the sand -- "Um, I'm warning you, uh, I, er, you'd better not cross th-this um line, and I uh mean it!" And The Dicpotato crossed the line. The Idiot said, "Er, uh, you'd better not knock uh this uh chip uh off my sh-shoulder, or else!" And The Dicpotato knocked the chip off The Idiot's shoulder. And The Idiot said, "Ooo, uh, now there is definitely going to be a very uh limited uh narrow uh action of some various uh sort, that I have the right to do, but only if the uh bad Republicans let me, but I will anyway, uh but not over the holiday weekend, uh."
It's not The Idiot who is a laughing stock. It's the Presidency, and America, and the stupid stupid stupid American public. America deserves the judgment that is coming upon it. The cup of God's wrath is full, as proven by our abandonment of sanity, and his abandonment of us. Whatever great archangel it was, who presided over and battled in the heavenlies for the United States, as Michael did or does for Israel, its energy and vitality is expended, now as vitiated as our own spirit. Indignant protestations as to the remaining vigor and potential of this land to the contrary, there are spiritual laws, as there are laws of physics: the trajectory of a missile can be calculated as far as the variables are known. There is a hand at work, determining our direction, and the will behind it is malevolent.
How dire. Are you praying, for a Great Awakening? -- for a Revival? -- a rebirth and renewal and revolution and return to self control and independence and personal responsibility? Maybe God listens, still. We're told of his hardened heart, and of his awakened compassion. I see it as arbitrary, so outside of our understanding it is.
Put not your faith in America. America has a tramp stamp and a piercing in her labia. America gave herself ducklips so she can give blowjobs to strangers and post the video anonymously on social media. Yes. America has made a sex tape. You betraying bitch.
We have to act in Syria, then, not because poison gas has been used. Poison gas is always being used, and we do nothing. We have to act not because hundreds upon hundreds of children have been casually slain. The math is too hard for me right now, but how many abortions are enjoyed every minute, in America? Assad is a saint, if we look at the matter statistically, as a ratio of killed children, America:Syria. We have to act because The Idiot said we would, and we are liars, but we must not be seen to be liars, and we are hypocrites, but we must not be seen to be hypocrites, and we are cowards, and betrayers, and just plain stupid, but we must not be seen to be so.
