Rollin' Like Sisyphus

A Moment Of Wild Conjecture

Posted in The Fail Pail by Huckleberry on May 20, 2015

Just suppose for the sake of shits and giggles that you are the President of the United States of America, and due to certain eccentricities in your background, you find yourself generally sympathetic to rebels of a certain profile. You don’t much like the current occupants in the seats of power in several countries of a certain region. Despite the widespread cultural antipathy of the people you lead against these rebel factions, you want them to succeed. After contrived RED LINES and FALSE PROVOCATIONS and KINETIC MILITARY ACTIONS, one of your embassies in one of these nations is stormed and destroyed, and your ambassador killed then paraded down the street, amid whispers that your clandestine operations service sold them weapons with which to oust their oppressors.
Now, fearing further backlash in an environment where those rebels now pretty much rule an entire swath of the region, you still want to supply them properly.
How do you do it?
Perhaps, knowing one group of soldiers is highly likely to retreat in the face of any conflict, thus abandoning their arms, gear and supplies to be captured by the rebels you favor is just an almost clever way to play both sides of the issue.
I don’t know anything.
I’m just saying its damn peculiar:

By all accounts, the Iraqi Army, or ISF, collapsed in the defense of Ramadi, just as it has time and again against ISIS previously, abandoning arms and armor to the enemy as it fled.

Crazy talk, I know.

    Sort of the “WINNING” by being a coke addict and whore junky sort of transferred to military and political action? Tiger blood, baby. Pure tiger blood. Actually, if you look around, you’ll find that everywhere. Civil, social, legal, academic, professional, art… hell, it’s in every church. Where isn’t it?

    Even in the mirror, which is why I am dumping the easy life, bucking up, and getting out, asap. I don’t want to see the mess when bottom is found. Everyone will be a Wallmart special, only dozens of times as violent, three times as hungry, and with nothing to keep all that in. Yum!

    Perhaps his handlers came up with it, but I don’t think he’s got that kind of cunning. You don’t call him Our Simple Affirmative Action President for nothing.
