This is NOT an incompetent administration — they are producing exactly the results they want.
d r i f t g l a s s: Plan Asinine
Because the Four Horsemen of the Republicans now have exactly what they want: an entire region completely destabilized and spiraling out of control, and at every single fucking instant when doing the smart thing was both possible and might have salvaged some part of this mess, the GOP went out of its way to kick the world off the balcony and onto the pointy rocks.
Over and over and over again.
And what is that but purposeful?
Get any of your GOP pals 3-4 beers drunk and poke ’em a little in their jingo hole and they’ll tell you exactly what they believe is going on.
They want them all dead.
All of them.
All of the scary brown people between the Jordan River and Kasmir.
All of them, sitting on all of that sexy, Christian oil, screaming at us in some weird language that we can’t understand about how much they Hate Us For Our Freedom.
Any halfway competent reverse-engineering of the events of the last five years can only bring you to one conclusion: this Administration has been playing to lose in the region.
Because they are trying to reconstitute a doctrine of Corporate Christian Manifest Destiny and visit on the Middle East exactly the same kind of slaughter that has not been seen since Europe annihilated whole nations and peoples in the Americas, and for the same reasons: For God and Gold.
