I don’t “do” 9/11 posts.
I think I’ve done a couple of posts on that day in the years since I’ve had my blog, and people have asked where I was when it happened, and at this point, it doesn’t matter, because I wasn’t in NYC, I didn’t know anyone in the towers, on the planes, etc., and I have enough anxiety without thinking about THAT mess, because it’s not MY mess.
(I was 18, on my way home from class my first semester of college, my 9am class was canceled, I couldn’t get music on the radio, and I got pissed off until I heard something about a plane crash. I spent the rest of the day confused, because I paid ZERO attention to politics, but my grandfather was angry and kept saying, “It’s that bastard bin Laden.” That’s literally my “story.” It’s dumb.)
Last night, Obama gave a speech about how we have to bomb Syria…but just a little bit, to get their attention, because chemical weapons are THE LINE, apparently.
John Kerry said something about how Syria could avoid us bombing them if they would give up their weapons in a week.
Vladimir Putin said, “Hey, Kerry’s got a point – Syria, whaddya say?”
As of when I went to bed last night, Syria had unofficially accepted PUTIN’S offer, leaving our President looking like a moron.
I believe I ranted about Obama getting the Nobel Peace Prize…and I don’t give a damn what anyone says, he got it for being the first black President, period. He didn’t earn it, he did nothing to foster peaceful relations. He existed, he lied, he got elected. Holy shit…that’s like, every President ever! Give them all NPP’s!
He’s been showing this itch…the same one every modern President has gotten…to go to war, to DO SOMETHING. He’s showing it, and last night he scratched.
Putin said, “Hey, don’t do that, it’ll get infected.” And Putin? The asshole who tells his country to beat up homosexuals? He’s right about this.
And Syria’s going, “Yeah, dude, that’s nasty, and it’s SYRIA talking…we scratch our itches all the time, but we’ve built up an immunity. You guys don’t want any of that.”
Aaaaand today. September 11, 2013. 12 years (no significance there, just counting) after planes were flown into three of the most important buildings in our country, and the world went, “WTF?!? Okay, we gotta stick together on this,” we’ve basically just given an invitation for someone to do it again, by looking like incompetent bullies.
GREAT TIMING, OBAMA.
