Kinetic Military Action

Wow. Word parsing at a totally new level.

Over the last few decades, our nation (and indeed the world) has seen an effort to soften the blows of words and titles, names, etc., in order to try to make things seem not as they are, or, to at least try to make some terms or titles less degrading.

“Garbage Man” became “urban sanitation engineer”. Midgets/Dwarfs became “vertically challenged”. In 1988, at the behest of Jesse Jackson, “black” became “african american”, (but apparently gave his blessing for blacks to call each other ‘nigger’ at will in casual daily conversation). “Housewife” became “domestic engineer”, or “stay at home mom” for those women who chose not to become a “career seeking matriarch”. “Secretary”? Now “administrative assistant”, or “executive assistant”. And of course, the Subway guy behind the counter is a “sandwich artist”.

But attempting to change the meaning of the word “war”? Why would Obama do such a thing? I think we all know why.

The meaning of the word “war” has been changed by the Obama administration before. Remember we had a “war on terror”? The current jack-ass in chief decided we would call that a “contingency operation”. This of course was done to try to soften the image of what we thought of our fellow human beings that are muslims. It was done for a variety of reasons, that have more to do with foolish attempts to put a subtle deception on the face of what we are really doing, facing, attempting to achieve.

Definition of WAR
a (1) : a state of usually open and declared armed hostile conflict between states or nations (2) : a period of such armed conflict (3) : state of war
b : the art or science of warfare
c (1) obsolete : weapons and equipment for war (2) archaic : soldiers armed and equipped for war
a : a state of hostility, conflict, or antagonism
b : a struggle or competition between opposing forces or for a particular end <a class war> <a war against disease>

Hmmmm. Looks to me like what we are doing in Libya is war, regardless of the U.N. umbrella it is operating under. Apparently Barry thinks it is instead a “kinetic military action”.

I’m not going to call the president stupid. I’m going to call him “reality challenged”. Rather than wish him the most rapid departure from the White House, I will instead pray for a “successful peaceful quadrennial appointment of a new head of state”.

Until then, I guess we are going to have to get used to this double-talking, watered down approach to dealing with the harsh realities this nation and this world are facing.

    It’s silly to waste our time on the birthers when so many dangerous threats loom. I wanted to have time to digest what had happened in Japan but the children of the middle east started shooting their guns in the air, dancing, raping, smiling for the camera,and chanting for freedom and democracy. Isn’t that what all civilized, educated, Jew hating religious Muslims do again and again and again? CNN’s correspondent, Anderson Cooper, was sucked into the thrill of it all in Egypt, but Fox’s correspondent, Geraldo Rivera, was less impressed in Libya. Now Japan has disappeared from the news while Arab countries try to pick leaders. We wait to see if friends or foes will prevail while they make new rules and new alliances. Japan impresses me and deserves our help; the Arab leaders deserve a kick in the butt WITH THE MANDATE TO MAKE CHANGES NOW.

    Now the middle east is an area that could use some socialist/communist indoctrination from cradle to grave, Obama style, but wait — they’ve already been indoctrinated by Islam. That’s why they will not change; they will not join the larger civilized world. To join the world and grow up they would have to stop the hate and violence against Jews and become tolerant of other religions. They would have to put archaic customs aside like female genital mutilation, multiple wives, arranged marriages and honor killings. They would have to erase “jihad” from all their books and have clerics denounce it. Surely that’s too much to ask of a Muslim fanatic with an express ticket to Muslim heaven for doing suicide bombings. But wait, they’re just like us, or so some idiots tell us.


    Israel is slightly smaller than the state of New Jersey. There’s Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan and the West Bank in the east and the Gaza Strip and Egypt on the southwest.

    Israel is the only democracy in the middle east and it’s often scorned and hated by its neighbors like Palestine which conduct hate education of their toddlers. They teach their children to hate and use women, the mentally handicapped, and children as suicide bombers. The West Bank and Gaza are disputed territories, Palestinian-held territories.

    A flotilla of people who want to cause trouble is chugging toward Israel this coming month. They are pro-Palestinian and want to confront and provoke. Nine people died last time this was tried and I guess they want the death toll to climb this time around.

    Here’s little Israel, the only democracy, about to be breached by haters, bullies and Muslim fanatics. Israel needs its sea blockade of Gaza to stand in order to keep weapons out of the hands of Iran-backed Hamas militants.

    I was never a birther but hey — since Donald Trump brought it up I’m thinking why not. Why not produce the “actual” birth certificate.

    Obama, you love minorities and the birthers are a minority. You bend over backwards for minorities and give them every perk available. Who knows, if you show them the birth certificate you might get their votes and that’s what you want isn’t it, more votes?

    Oh wait — you just want to make fun of the birthers, right? You just want to have them to ridicule because that’s what Democrats do.


    I was never a fan of The Donald but I have to tell you, I’m loving his plain talk, his in-your-face truth and he’s every bit as arrogant as Obama but with the experience to support it.

    Go Donald Go! You might be a flash in the pan but I’m listening. You don’t make up new words to disguise or mislead us and your hair is still fascinating. I like you as I never have before.

    Which reminds me,


    I have a need to know who thinks up phrases like “kinetic military action.” I want to know this person’s name and see his face. I want to know who I’m laughing at. Democrats love to make fun of Republicans so let’s make it fair and allow us to ridicule him. You’re big on “FAIR” aren’t you, Mr. President?

    Aren’t you the open and transparent guy, Mr. President? I really want to know the guy’s name who thought up “kinetic military action.” I want to see his face for future reference. I want to see the people who make my head hurt with their twisted word artistry. I want to see these English Masters who know the dictionary but not reality, truth or common sense.

    Give us the birth certificate and the name of your word artist. Just pick up the phone and get it done. It’s that easy. There’s no reason to make the birthers suffer except to deny them and use them. You portray them as the crazy right which is a good belly-laugh for the the crazy left.

    You’ll spend millions on Libyan rebels but not a dime to assure Americans looking for an answer. End the controversy now. Act!

    Our “kinetic” military action in Libya continues. The “kinetic” energy possessed by an object is due to its motion. Think velocity — oh hell — think stupid, stupid, stupid renaming, misleading and politically screwed up. It’s Obama at his brain-numbing worst.

    Easily cajoled and seduced when his great ego is in play, our president just couldn’t resist those signs printed in English and the rebels’ pleas for freedom and democracy and, after all, we’re not broke. All Democrats know we can print more money and keep spending for all democratic programs. If you don’t have a “program” ask for one because they’re as plentiful as fortune cookies in a Chinese restaurant AND NEW ONES ARE INVENTED ON A DAILY BASIS. If you have a problem there’s a program for it — just ask.

    So what are we doing in Libya? Installing a new dictator? Electing someone to keep the people in check for a ha-ha democracy that doesn’t function? Contributing money and time so cruel Islamist rule can take over in midstream and scream “Death to America.”?

    The rebels have been described as a “rag-tag” band that doesn’t know what it’s doing. They like to shoot bullets into the sky and scream a lot, reminding me of deadly children. They are ill-equipped, untrained and financially dependent. I guess that’s why Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State, gave them 25 million in nonlethal aid. I heard our flights and bombs cost 1 million a day. Is that true?

    MESSSAGE TO OBAMA: Get us out of Libya! Do not let the KINETIC MESS linger. And please, stop the stupid name games. Your renaming lame-brains are becoming a joke.

    I don’t trust Geraldo Rivera’s reporting in Libya and FOX should know it. Lining people up, like Geraldo does, and having them repeat a refrain turns me off and I find myself distrusting Geraldo and those performing for him. Anderson Cooper of CNN does the same thing, finding pockets of people who think the same, and having them repeat their refrain.

    Find a different pocket of people and you will most certainly get a different refrain. Those who don’t speak English aren’t heard from or else they’ve mastered one or two words for the camera. I get the idea we are seeing performances and not real life or true thought. It’s those who don’t speak English and don’t perform that I want to know about. Who are they and what do they think. The media can’t bring us that. English-speaking media is drawn to English-speaking rebels they can understand. Representation of ideas and people is inaccurate.

    It reminds me of the Hispanic chorus that says, “We just want the American Dreeeeeeeeeeeam.” In Libya it’s, “We just want Freeeeeeeeedom.” In the end their cry for freedom means nothing if al Qaeda takes over. Finding pockets of people tells us nothing about how the numbers are stacked. From the very beginning the rebels had signs printed in English to appeal to Americans. This bothered me and still does.

    Geraldo Rivera said, “Americans don’t like brown people” during the illegal immigration wars conducted here in America on my TV. His words were so profoundly untrue, in fact an out-and-out lie, that I’ve never forgotten it. That’s why I don’t trust Geraldo Rivera’s reporting in Libya. Geraldo doesn’t report; he takes sides and is not above lying.

    I have never heard Geraldo apologize for lying.

    Under the auspices of a NATO mission, France, the U.K. and the U.S. were able to establish a no-fly zone and stave off retribution against the rebels by Gadafi.

    Now what? How much time,treasure and lives will it cost us? Will it create more ill-will against us in the mideast? What do we say when other rioting mideastern nations cry for our help? Who are the rebels? The rebels are unorganized and out-gunned. Will we train and supply them?

    Everyone agrees the longer the stalemate the more opportunity groups like al Qaeda will have time to creep in.

    Now what?

  6. S. Nicholson says:


    Is it a whipped chocolate delight? Is it an exotic island in the Pacific? Is it a bartender’s latest concoction. No, no, and no. It’s the ex-Libyan Foreign Minister who fled to the U.K. a few days ago and I wouldn’t give a damn if he weren’t on my TV and if the mideast and all its trouble hadn’t come to the United States since 9/11/01 when 19 hijackers killed nearly 3,000 Americans in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania. Now I know more about the mideast than I ever wanted to know.


    Now I know about honor killings, male superiority, female genital mutilation, arranged marriages, Islam, ancient barbaric customs and a religion that dares to say it wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. What is wrong with the United Nations if it allows such declarations of intent? What good is the United Nations if it allows such nations in its doors? Why do we seat ourselves next to men of primitive cultures and barbaric ways and lend our ears to their extreme views?

    Do you think Muslims in the mideast and Iran are studying us and our customs so they can fit in? No! We may be stupid enough to try to please them when they arrive on our shores but Muslims don’t want to fit in. Muslims want you — you idiot — to change your customs, your way of life and your laws to oblige Islam. That’s why political leaders in France, the U.K. and Germany, like Sarkozy and Cameron and Merkel, ALL DECLARE MULTICULTURALISM DOESN’T WORK.

    Oh, I know some of you walking around in la-la land are outraged. You’ve had this lie jammed down your throats and you don’t want to let go of it BUT THE THREAT OF HOME-GROWN EXTREMISM HAS BECOME TOO LARGE TO IGNORE. Here in the U.S. I think of our home-grown Muslim killer at Ft. Hood, Nidal Malik Hasan, Army Major and psychiatrist who killed 13 and wounded 29. Had those around Hasan been more attentive, more informed this would not have happened. There’s something icky, sick and wrong about this man being a psychiatrist and treating Americans while his mind lived in such a dark and disturbing place that he allowed himself to kill for Islam.


    Is there such a thing as a moderate Muslim? That’s what everyone said, including my politicians and government, and I bought into it but now I have some rethinking to do.

    What is a moderate Muslim? Is it a Muslim who says live and let live and joins into American society? That, on its face, seems good and acceptable but is that how most Muslims really think?

    Are moderate Muslims really just people who have decided not to kill, Muslims who are willing to wait for “political Islam” to clear the way for Shariah law and Muslim culture to aggressively push their way into American life and rule? Isn’t that what we see happening today throughout our country?

    Is there a secret place in the heart of every Muslim where Islam reigns supreme, superior to every other religion and therefore destined to rule the world? Is not the prime directive to fight until infidels say there is no god but god and Allah is his name? The truth is out there somewhere and you can bet that naive, social-servicing with a need to please American government will be the last to know it. American government and the Army can’t even recognize a Muslim killer who sent up red flag after red flag.


    Oh, yes. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of the Islamic Republic of Iran, wants to entertain us with a little film called “The Coming Is Upon Us.” Oh boy, can’t wait. It’s about the coming of the 12th Madhi and how Muslims must gird up for the battle with the infidel. It’s end of the world; Islam rules kind of stuff and ol’ Ahmadinejad can’t wait for that 12th Imam to reappear. Ahmadinejad begins his prayers with an appeal for the Imam to hasten his return.

    I can’t help but wonder how many Muslims in the U.S. have bought into Ahmadinejad’s religious dream. Where will they stand if fighting breaks out? AND WHY IN THE WORLD ARE WE ALLOWING MUSLIMS INTO THIS COUNTRY WHEN WE’VE SEEN WHAT’S HAPPENED IN THE U.K.?

    I don’t care if Obama thinks the evening call to Muslim prayer is the sweetest thing he’s ever heard. The framers of the Constitution couldn’t have anticipated the rise of unsophisticated primitives from the mideast who are willing to die for a religion they want to impose on the world.

    Americans need to be protected now!

    Don’t the Dems ever get tired of it? They make my head hurt. If I call a bomb a ball will it hurt any less when it blows up? “A rose by any other name ….”

    It’s a war stupid! You’ve said “Gadaffi has got to go”. Your big mouth said it and now you’ve got to act with “kinetic” energy. I don’t even know if you meant it when you said it or if it just slipped out. I have no idea how that Jello brain of yours works.

    Four wars: Iraq, Afghanistan, Mexico and now Libya. I’m not even including the war on terror. How did war-hating Dems manage it? You guys are the ass-kissing, social-servicing can’t hurt an ant liberals who want to save the world and please everyone. Put on your sandals, pull out a joint and explain yourselves!

    Where did you Dems go wrong? Don’t you agree we’re stretching ourselves and our resources thin? Your “cool fool” of a president is going to bury us in the quicksand of the mideast.
