The other night, I had one of my "Dan is off his meds" conversations. It was about what is wrong with the world today. IMO, it's simple. The United States is no longer Feared.
For a long time now, America has been looked down upon. We have bent over backwards to placate everyone who isn't an American. This needs to stop. In World War 2, we sent 1,000 bombers (Yes that is one thousand) to bomb ENTIRE CITIES to rubble just to hit a POSSIBLE target. And if we weren't sure it was destroyed, we would bomb the rubble into a different zip code just to get a clearer view of the target!
What's that? We can't do that anymore? We have to worry about the innocents? WHY? Are they Americans? Then why should we give a @#*$ about Habib, Hadji, Manuelle, or any other NON American? The pecking order should be simple. Americans, our allies, and targets.
Here is the REAL question. Would Blowjob the dictator (insert any douche bags name here) EVER have become a problem if he knew that he could be awoken one night and see this:
An anonymous, balaclava wearing Special Warfare Dude, his bloody knife (for some reason most people fear a knife more than a gun), and he tells BJ, "All your guards are dead. All your staff... Dead. Your dogs... Dead. No one even knows we are here. You are an annoyance, become an irritant and you won't wake up...... EVER."
Remember it takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, but only 3 for a correct trigger squeeze.
Part of the problem is we pay WAY to much attention to what Hollywood thinks. Why people think that being an actor makes someone an expert is beyond me. They have problems making good movies, but are right there whining for us to give money to whatever country when something bad happens. BTW where is Hollywood now, when AMERICANS could use some help recovering from Hurricane Irene?
