This Bus Is Off To War, Again!
By Ernest Stewart

We're all Bozos on this bus.
The president is driving us.
Not one of us, will make a fuss.
This bus is off to war!
Fighting Clowns ~~~ The Firesign Theatre

Our Nobel Peace Prize Laureate is at it again. President Barack Obama sent the U.S. Congress legislation Wednesday to authorize military force against Islamic State fighters, summoning lawmakers to "show the world we are united in our resolve" to defeat militants who have overrun parts of the Middle East and threaten attacks on the United States.

In urging Congress to back military force, the President ruled out "enduring offensive combat operations," a deliberately ambiguous phrase designed to satisfy lawmakers with widely different views on any role for U.S. ground troops, double-speak at its finest!

I'm beginning to lose track of Barry's wars; is this his 7th or his 8th? I suppose it depends on whether or not you count the current war in the Ukraine? Not to mention the new "Cold War" he's managed to goad Russia into. Still, it seems quite a lot for a Nobel Peace Prize winner, does it not?

Shouldn't we allow the various and sundry puppet regimes that we and the British have set up to handle ISIS? After all, they're the ones whose heads will be rolling if ISIS succeeds. Something that Jordan, Syria, Turkey and others in the area have realized -- and have begun to respond to. Barry has never needed the consent of Con-gress to send his drones after ISIS or any other brown-skinned folks before; and look how well our interventions have worked out for us so far! You can see the invention of ISIS as a direct cause-and-effect of our earlier interventions!

Oh, and did I mention Barry also proposed no geographic limitations where U.S. forces could pursue the militants? The authorization covers the Islamic State and "associated persons or forces," defined as those fighting on behalf of, or alongside ISIS, "or any closely-related successor entity in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners," i.e., Israel!

If approved, this will give Barry and his successors the right to murder Muslims, not just in the Middle East, but anywhere throughout the entire globe. Look out London and Paris! That background noise you may be hearing isn't tinnitus -- but Alfred Nobel spinning in this grave!

Thanks for the music!


We get by with a little help from our friends!
So please help us if you can...?


So how do you like Bush Lite so far?
And more importantly, what are you planning on doing about it?

Until the next time, Peace!
