Newt Gingrich Volunteering to Go Fight in Libya
OOPS — sorry, I mis-read that. He isn’t offering to go there HIMSELF and fight. [sheesh] [pshaw] What was I thinking? He just wants OTHER PEOPLE to go to Libya and get killed or maimed. For WHAT???
I thought the United States was broke. Our infrastructure is collapsing, our “education” system is the laughingstock of the world and millions of Americans are in economic freefall with no safety net. And yet there’s apparently a secret trillion-dollar stash hidden away for special emergencies — like invading another country ten thousand miles away.
Newt Gingrich wants to invade Libya “this evening.”
“…It’s also an ideological problem. The United States doesn’t need anybody’s permission. We don’t need to have NATO, who frankly, won’t bring much to the fight. We don’t need to have the United Nations…All we have to do is suppress his air force, which we could do in minutes.”
Ah yes, it’ll be over in just a few minutes. Kinda like our cakewalk in Iraq, which was supposed to take a few weeks at the very most. How’d that work out?
“The United States doesn’t need anybody’s permission.” That’s right. We’ve been going downhill and backwards for years now, but America is still Number One God Damn It!
When Neuter Grinch says “we don’t need” NATO or the United Nations, he really means there’s no more “Coalition of the Willing.” That ship has sailed. The last bridge has been burned. Lucy yanked the football away from Charlie Brown one time too many.
Our military has already been bled dry from our quagmires in Iraq and Afghanistan. Recruiting standards have been lowered and lowered and lowered again. By now, every 42-year-old drug-addicted couch potato with a low IQ and a criminal record who might want to enlist, probably already has. Who would we be sending in to carry out Quagmire Number Three?
Newt Gingrich should stick to doing what he does best. Neuter: Why don’t you go serve divorce papers on your fourth wife, or whatever number you’re on now. Or are you waiting for her to get sick first?
