When America dropped the bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the argument for whether that was a humane thing to do, is still being debated. Many people said that we should have continue the war and sooner or later we could have overtaken Japan as we did Germany, rather than killing all those innocent lives.
But..what many people don’t know, is that the Japanese had developed a nonmetallic land mine that could not be detected by any known means. They planted these mines in random patterns across the beaches of Japan and along all possible invasion routes. Estimates of deaths from those land mines alone ran into the hundreds of thousands. They tried in vain to find a way to destroy them. Dropping bombs from airplanes in Europe failed.
According to Richard Anderson, a renown staticist who was working on the problem with the Defense Department at the time—
One of the reasons why the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Japan was that all their experiments and calculations showed that it was impossible to destroy these mines by any other means.
So…if history repeats itself…we may all wonder about Iran: Will we ever see another nuclear weapon used in our lifetime?
And is the reason why our Congress approves such an unconstitutional measure of using drones on our home soil—is because they know something we don’t? Are there terrorists in the United States already with nuclear material? Some experts say it’s entirely possible.
Ahmadinejad has threatened to hit the ‘heart’ of America with some kind of devastation weapon. North Korea…is threatening New York. Obama says nothing.
Today we find out that when Obama was told about the attack happening in Benghazi, he told Leon Panetta to do whatever they felt necessary, and then Obama took off at 5 o’clock and nobody spoke to him again, even though the attack went on for hours… which means:.
1) He’s the most incompetent President ever in the history of the United States and just went off to have his big dinner and watch basketball…or
2) He ordered the stand-down in Benghazi and sacrificed those men because he didn’t want it to get out that the ambassador was helping supply Al-Qaeda with arms and weapons before his elections, and everything that happened following that was a cover-up.
3) Both of the above.
Nobody finds it less than funny that after all these years, our government couldn’t have come out and just admitted that the Japanese had land mines that so well protected their island, we couldn’t defeat them from the ground. It would have made a lot more sense. Was not revealing this fact a way to make us look big, and invincible?
“What we pretend to be defending as the “truth” is really our own self-esteem.” Thomas Merton “No Man Is An Island:
So..what is the truth? Obama lies. Panetta lies. Hillary lies. Who do we believe? Dick Cheney, the most hated man in America for years, said that his worst nightmare was to wake up to a nuclear attack on an American City.
Nobody Thinks….Hell, I’m not sure what I think, but I do know one thing…I’d rather be drinking Rum & Coke on the beach in Hawaii than thinking about any of this…care to join me?
When it comes to punishing ‘opinion’ makers this week, we have two contenders: Chuck Hagel VS Donald Trump.
First: Chuck. Evidently ‘Chuck’ has been following Obama around on various trips overseas for years…either hoping he’d be nominated for the job of Secretary of Defense, or training for it. Obama seems to love him, no doubt because he has the same philosophy about the Middle East as Obama does…everything Muslim is good. Everything Jewish…is not.
But many in the G.O.P. are not happy with Hagel’s past ‘opinions’, especially those opinions he has on Israel.—
Hagel once referred to the “Jewish lobby” and it’s supposed efforts to “intimidate” members of Congress, and he has openly distanced himself from Israel, reportedly asserting that he was not an Israeli Senator.
Right. So…once again…the G.O.P has put out a warning: Behave, or we won’t confirm you.
Lindsey Graham, a Republican Senator for South Carolina, has said Mr Hagel “would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense towards the state of Israel in our nation’s history.”
But when you got Henry Kissinger, the man who worked with ALL the Republican Presidents, stating that Israel will be gone in ten years…you have to wonder if Chuck Hagel isn’t just another Chris Christie—-and where does this all lead?
Second: And then there’s Donald.
Now, Trump might want to make sure he keeps on the “buzz” side of the equation, with Comcast‘s (CMCSA) NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt saying the network will take action if he “becomes somehow hurtful and says or does things that cross a line,” according to a report in Deadline.com. Accordingly, Trump has “engaged in sexist behavior” and “perpetuated the racially charged birther conspiracy.” The same campaign, from the liberal group MoveOn.org, last month hired a mobile billboard reading “Dump Trump” to circle Macy’s corporate headquarters.
So? Who is going to be censored more in the press whenever they state their opinion?
Nobody Thinks that Donald will be censored more, because he attacked the main man himself…Obama, AND because he could still run for President in 2016. The press hate him. You will see an onslaught of bad press coming up in the next few years. I’m sure Trump tied a dog to his limo at some point in his life…we just don’t know about it yet.
Besides, Hagel seems lame compared to the new CIA appointee Brennan, who once referred referred to Jerusalem as “Al Quds,” the Arabic name for the city, and he announced that the government would not use the terms “Islamists” and “Jihadists.”That little nit bit alone makes us all soooo much safer, don’t you think?
But…Mr. Brennen sure does a fine job of killing them Muslims with drones. So, I think Brennen is going to attract more fire…than Hagel. This will all die down in a few days, unless of course they want to use his confirmation as a big show…to distract us from the economy.
They do love to all blow hot air.
While we will be talking about Hagel for weeks, Trump will be somewhere doing what he always does: Making money.
So, Donald Trump wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for today simply because I like his opinions!
And by the way…Mr. Greenblatt also said: “We talked him out of running for president, wasn’t that good enough?”
