Ki·net·ic: 1: of or relating to the motion of material bodies and the forces and energy associated therewith. 2: active, lively, dynamic, energizing - a kinetic performer. 3: of or relating to kinetic art.
From the moment the Tomahawks began to fly, the Obama White House has been asked THE question: Are we fighting a war in Libya?
From military officials to administration spokesmen to the Commander-in-Chief himself, the answer is: NO. If its not war, what exactly is it then?
In typical Obama administration fashion, deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes attempted to clarify things yesterday:
I think what we are doing is enforcing a resolution that has a very clear set of goals, which is protecting the Libyan people, averting a humanitarian crisis, and setting up a no-fly zone. Obviously that involves kinetic military action, particularly on the front end.
What? Perhaps national security adviser Tom Donilons explanation will clarify things a bit:
Military steps and they can be kinetic and non-kinetic, obviously the full range are not the only method by which we and the international community are pressuring Gadhafi.
Okay then. While the term kinetic warfare was first used by Bob Woodward in his book, Bush at War, it fits perfectly with the Obama administrations practice of obfuscation.
Kinetic warfare involves dropping bombs and shooting bulletsyou know, killing people and breaking things. (Notice that Obama and his spokesmen choose the term kinetic military action vs. kinetic warfare, as it was orginally coined.)
Non-kinetic warfare entails high-tech non-violent stuff like cyber-war, messing electronically with the enemys communications equipment or wiping out its bank accounts.
Since Im relatively confident that the U.S. doesnt use cruise missiles to attack enemy bank accounts, weve pretty much gone kinetic, havent we?
Oh, and this morning, press secretary Carney called it a time-limited, scope-limited operation. Thatll sure strike terror in Gadhafis heart.
I feel much better now
Obama lied, and kinetic energy was released.
I am sure no media hack had the audacity to laugh in the face of that little turd Carney.
That would be a moment to remember.
Obama tells America, KMA...
WHITE HOUSE: CALM DOWN PEOPLE; ITS NOT WAR; ITS KINETIC MILITARY ACTION
You couldn’t make this stuff up . . . these people are sick . . . and a lot of GIs are going to get hurt by their damn stupidity and arrogance. KINETIC . . . WTF does that mean?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
Obama is mocking his subjects.
FUbo... and every rat bastard working with you.
From a physical sense, kinetic energy is 0.5 X mass velocity X velocity.
With respect to the PR approach on this - seems to be different from war, which typicall involves making a lot of different masses attain a high velocity so that the E=.5mV2 breaks things and kills people.
But I'm not a polititian...
We need kinetic energy to relegate the POSOTUS, his enablers and sycophants to the dustbin of American history.
Hmmm. “Quantitative Easing”. Bull Shiite for printing up a bunch of funny money.
I think this stuff is Ivy League Bull Shiite for “lets use obscure words that make us sound really smart that nobody in the club will understand.”
“With respect to the PR approach on this - seems to be different from war, which typicall involves making a lot of different masses attain a high velocity so that the E=.5mV2 breaks things and kills people.”
So, it’s probably crackers to slip a rozzer the dropsy in the snide.
Must be very comforting to all GIs involved in this mess to have a pencil necked, illegal alien as a commander-in-chief and homosexuals in your unit fighting a kinetic war.
Oh, it’s exercises, like Pilates and Yoga. Or it’s a water filter. It’s still confusing.
I suppose that they will declare the troops 0bambi kills will be “kinetically moved to a different state”.
And giving Naro Terrorists Auto Assault Weapons is just Eric Holder’s way of killin a few crackers!
That's a doozie!
First it was WTF. Now it is KMA.
Well they can KMA.
Yep. a little well-placed kinetic energy can do wonders, like at the polls on election day to monitor for fraud. That's some kinetic energy I'd be willing to engage in in order to sweep liberal "elected" imposters into a dustbin.
Exactly! That's what I thought, too!
Oh, man! That's PRICELESS!
Well done! Bump to the top!
Win the future-What the F###?
Kinetic Military Action-Kiss My A##...
They are on a roll!
I'm with you on that, Finny. Thread BUMP!
We need a James Bond ejection seat for the White House, today!!!
I believe they stumbled into the first acronym (WTF) by accident.
I think the second was intentional... These are a bunch of juveniles in the White House who are full of themselves.
We need to put the adults back in charge and get rid of these stunted development dopers.
