We need to take up a collection to reward someone for sending a cruise missle into the kaabaa and git the Moon Rock and another one to reward a crusader who can spike the well in Qom with something of appropriate caliber.

US ambassadors are on their own. We found that out in Libya.

This can’t be possible, I know that I have been alternately told by our government that Al-Qaida is a destroyed or be not our enemy. Either way how can this be happening? You don’t think this administration would lie to the American people, do you?

The only way to deal with al-Qaeda is the way used a hundred years ago. Extermination. The locals know who and where they are and don’t say anything. In former times civilians knew enough to pack their bags and leave the area, they were called refugees. They need to take up this old habit and become refugees. Being a refugee is bad, but it’s better than being a corpse. If civilians get accidentally killed, that’s too bad, but there should be no repercussions from it. We need to just bomb and kill. Eventually they will get the idea that it’s not healthy to be al-Qaeda.

If ambassador Gerald Feierstein is ever murdered by the koranimals, I am sure that Obama, the First Idiot, and his entire cabinet, including the Joint Chiefs of Staff, would claim complete surprise, or blame some TV situation comedy for the tragedy.

I am amazed that a best-selling novel has yet to be written with a satisfying version of that wish.
The closest I can recall (which makes High American Military the "villain") is Wildfire by Nelson Demille (2006.)

I really believe that a much less ambiguous and much more satisfying story is waiting to be written.

She is at an undisclosed location devising her next serious injury or debilitating illness that prevents her from owning up to the blame for foreign policy disasters under her Secretary of State tenure.

Hey, papa Bush has been getting lots of sympathy for a legitimate illness for over a month. Surely, she could stretch this out that long and then a long convalescence with Huma at her side. If enough people feel sorry for her, she'll never have to answer a single question.
