“Mission Accomplished”—Ever?

The New York Times (“Iraq Airstrikes May Continue for Months, Obama Says”) reports that,

 

“President Obama said on Saturday that the airstrikes and humanitarian assistance drops he ordered last week in Iraq could go on for months, preparing Americans for an extended military presence in the skies there as Iraq’s leaders try to build a new government.

“‘I don’t think we’re going to solve this problem in weeks,’ Mr. Obama told reporters. ‘This is going to be a long-term project.’”

 

“Long-term,” indeed.

Everything about the Middle East is “long-term”.

A month or two before the US invaded Iraq in A.D. 2003, Saddam Hussein warned that such invasion would result in the “mother of all wars”. Everyone laughed. Surely, lowly Iraq could not put up much of a war against the US.

A couple weeks after invading Iraq and dispensing a generous dose of “shock and awe,” President G.W. Bush declared “Mission Accomplished!”

Yay!

Except, as it turned out, we couldn’t solve the Iraqi problem in just weeks, and the war dragged on for another 8.5 years—until the “mission” (whatever that was—eliminate the non-existent Weapons of Mass Destruction?) was seemingly “accomplished” when the American military “finally” left Iraq in December of A.D. 2011.

In retrospect, Hussein’s warning about the “mother of all wars” may’ve been exaggerated, but it was way closer to the truth than Bush’s “Mission Accomplished”.   In fact, Hussein’s description wasn’t even all that exaggerated given that the Iraq War was America’s third longest war (after Afghanistan, 13 years; and Viet Nam, almost 11 years). If Iraq wasn’t (yet) the “mother of all wars,” it might at least have been the step-mom.

Today, we’re again bombing in Iraq. This time the targets are ISIS soldiers. Is this a new “Mission” or is it just another episode of the original “Mission” (whatever that was)?

President Obama has warned again that we may be in for some “long-term” bombing that may take months rather than weeks. And, who knows, if we put some “boots on the ground,” it might even take a few more years to reach the sublime objective of a real “Mission Accomplished” (if anyone knows what the “mission” is) or, at least, a “Mission Escaped”.

Did anyone know what we were fighting for during the first 8.5 years of the Iraqi War?

Does anyone know what we’re fighting for now?

 

•  I think there’s a lesson here: The US government is crazy to become further involved in Middle East peace or Middle East wars.

I believe the Bible is correct when it refers to End Times leaders declaring “Peace, peace” (“mission accomplished”) when there is no peace.

I doubt that any western government or power can impose “peace” in the Middle East.

It’s remotely possible that a new “Caliphate” run by Muslims might be able to forcefully impose “peace” (or at least some semblance of “order”) on the Middle East. But even that’s unlikely so long as the Sunnis are determined to behead the Shia and even one Shiite remains.

I believe the Middle East will remain unstable and prone to chaos, violence and war for the balance of our lives. The causes are not just geopolitical or religious (which can be mitigated by man’s efforts). The causes are also genetic—which cannot be affected by mankind’s efforts.

Circa 600 A.D., the prophet Mohammed reportedly married about a dozen women—one of which was his first cousin. Believing Mohammed to be perfect, Muslims have since sought to emulate Mohammed by also marrying their own first cousins (a custom forbidden to the Jewish and Christian faiths). Recently, several scientific studies have shown that, due to centuries of inbreeding with their first cousins, Muslims are disproportionately predisposed to genetic defect. As a result of this inbreeding, many Muslims are genetically prone to physical deformity, low IQs, mental illness and violence.

Insofar as we arm crazy people, we shouldn’t be surprised if they behead each other. Insofar as we fight crazy people, we shouldn’t expect our war to ever end.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a better chance of establishing a permanent peace to the south side of Chicago than the federal government does of establishing peace to the Middle East.

Those who meddle in the Middle East under the pretext of “peace, peace,” will probably achieve only “war, war”—and the major meddlers undoubtedly know it. In other words, the governments who shout loudest for “peace, peace” in the Middle East intend to cause “war, war”.

If you want to involve yourself and your nation in endless war, keep meddling in the Middle East.

If you want some semblance of “peace, peace” for yourself and your nation, stay out of the Middle East.

To hell with ‘em. Let them kill each other to the last lunatic.

Some would dismiss that advice as callous and worse, economically naïve. After all, what would happen to the global price of crude oil if we simply allowed the Muslims to self-destruct? Wouldn’t the price increase cripple the US economy?

I doubt it.

I’d bet that any increase in the price of crude caused by allowing the Middle East to explode would be less than the price we’ve already paid for the last Middle East war, or the price we’re going to pay for the next one.

Peace is usually cheaper than war.

Plus, if we stayed out of the Middle East, we wouldn’t have to send our soldiers over there to kill or be killed.

    Why don’t we all just say “no”?

    Mr Adask,

    I think your premise here is that we (America/U.S.) should not be meddling in the MIddle East. I agree, wholeheartedly. Until it is evident that ISIS (or whomever) inherits the capacity to become another Hitler and become a threat to the U.S. mainland or in the same capacity, overthrow other countries abroad in that regard, I believe the U.S. should denounce this activity but not become involved in that region abroad.

    Regardless, and assuming you disapproved of our government under Bush more so than Iraq’s under Hussein, I believe your statement below has NO relevant significance regarding being ‘closer to the truth’ for either side. Those statements you cite by Bush and Hussein are pure rhetoric by both of those clowns. Any ‘truth’ applied to history subsequent to those statements is purely consequential. There is no ‘clairvoyant’ message to be gleaned from either of those scumbags.

    “In retrospect, Hussein’s warning about the “mother of all wars” may’ve been exaggerated, but it was way closer to the truth than Bush’s “Mission Accomplished”.”

    Further, Bush declaring that Osama Bin Laden was ‘insignificant’ or whatever the exact quote was, is INEXCUSABLE. Why did we not mount a full attack on hunting this scumbag down and killing him? Instead, going after Hussein? To me, this is at the top of the most egregious decision any President has ever made; and for WHAT reason? I will at least give that to Obama (finding/killing Bin Laden), for whatever that’s worth between either POTUS since I believe they are both frauds.

    THE EMET GROUP….remember them…from the “Jewish” media…?

    reported by – Joel C. “Al Quida” Rosenberg…18AUG01…in worldmag.com !

    A group of American business and political leaders are building a pro-Israel media “war room” in Washington, D.C. The group will be called “Emet”—which in Hebrew means “truth.” Emet will try to address biased media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and also make the case that the conflict, while serious and important, pales in comparison to the larger geo-strategic threat posed to the United States and the West by Iran and Iraq, both of whom are trying to build and/or acquire weapons of mass destruction. Funding Emet is Leonard Abramson; he sold U.S. Healthcare to Aetna in the mid-1990s for $8.9 billion. Abramson has recruited a powerful board of directors, including Bernie Marcus, founder of Home Depot; Les Wexner, founder of The Limited; Edgar Bronfman Sr., who once owned Seagram’s; and Lou Ranieri, a major Wall Street player who now co-owns one of Israel’s largest banks. Also joining the board are Jeane Kirkpatrick, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, and Jack Kemp.

      Well, Anthony, so you don’t actually answer questions or interact with others, you just spout off other people’s opinions. It’ll be alright, slither back into your own little comfort zone with your cute, little, irrelevant sayings.

    Al, you are missing the boat in this one. To address the matter, one must dig to the root of the problem. First, the so-called state of “Israel” is a bandit state in that the so-called “Israelis” (heavy on the Lies) stole the land from its rightful owners, the Palestinians, who are the descendants of Ishmael, the son of Abraham by his wife Sarah’s handmaiden, Hagar. This is true of all the Arabs in that region of the world as it is the covenant of our Creator/Savior to these people as prescribed in the Book of Genesis in the Bible. Add to this, that the Israelis and other people who call themselves “Jews” have control of the U.S. government through their fraudulent debt-money usury system and certain of their puppet political prostitutes who fallaciously claim to be representing U.S. citizens and our best interest when in reality, they are acting in the best interest of themselves and the Israelis and antichrists who pull their strings. Now, add to this that the Arab nations of Libya, Syria and Iran would not participate in the debt-money usury system of the international banking cartel in that their religion forbids usury (the charging of interest). Of course, so does true Christianity under the Laws of our Creator/Savior, but Christians have allowed the antichrist moneychangers into our midst and they are robbing us blind, while creating all these wars and using us to fight them for their political and economic gain through the murder and mayhem they cause. Now add to this that these Arab nations are wealthy primarily because of their oil resources and the fact that the moneychangers want to continue using the American dollar in the marketing of the oil but the dollar is rapidly losing it’s stability due to the debt-money usury system imposed on us by the international banking cartel and resulting inflation. So, my old friend, let’s place the blame on who is responsible for all this chaos and carnage. I think it was Edmond Burke who once said that “all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” The bottom line is this: We have this vast army of Christian soldiers sitting around in social clubs erroneously called “churches” today getting their ears tickled with “Jewish fables” as the bible describes the false doctrines of men which has neutralized the real “Church” which is the whole civil body-politic of Christian nations that stand by and do nothing while this wickedness and evil triumphs all around us. Even worse, many of these folks actually support the very wickedness and evil, albeit unwittingly due to the false doctrines (lies) they have accepted as truth. And who has given these professing Christians the “strong delusion that they should believe a lie that they all might be damned who believe not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness?” It is our Creator/Savior Who has done this as you can read in II Thessalonians 2:11-12. The good news is, more and more are beginning to realize their failure to recognize the real truth which is that professing Christian Americans have been having “pleasure in unrighteousness” in that they have been unwittingly acting in direct violation of the first four commandments of our Creator/Savior at least for the last 200 years. How? By practicing Baal worship. We have erected in our minds these corporate fiction creature images called “government” and then elected or appointed mere humans amongst ourselves to operate them for us. Soon, these public servants begin thinking they are better social planners than Almighty God and usurp the limited political power held inviolate by the people. These former public servants are now “leaders.” Over time, with the help of the antichrist owned/controlled media & entertainment industry, and the indoctrination centers called “public schools,” our Creator/Savior’s law-system and moral code is completely undermined rendering it of no effect. The people bow in fear, worship, support and dependence upon their own corporate fiction creature image and mere humans who run it rather than “seeking first the kingdom [government] of God.” All of this is done while these professing Christian Americans go to their congregational social clubs a few days a week to get their ears tickled and give lip service to our Creator/Savior. Thus, what we are witnessing today is described in Deuteronomy, Chapter 28. Our antichrist Edomite/Canaanite adversaries would have no power over us to commit all this wickedness and evil against us and others if we, as the covenant people of our Creator/Savior would simply heed Deuteronomy 28:1-14 and the laws, statutes and judgments of our Creator/Savior and see to it that His will/law is done on earth as it is in Heaven, awaken back into truth and reality, and come out of this fraudulent Babylonian delusional trance, and give our Creator/Savior the honor and glory due Him as our ONLY Risen King, Savior & Law-Giver, whereupon, once again, He will forgive us, and will be with us as the evil doers and all their wickedness and evil is taken out of our midst pursuant to Matthew 13:37-43, et.al.. YHWY speed the day!
