Obama kilt* Osama

I was working last Sunday afternoon when they made an announcement over the base PA that the threat level had been increased to Bravo. That’s not an everyday announcement, so we all kind of looked at each other wondering if we really just heard that. We haven’t been in Bravo since after 9/11, and we were in Bravo for about three years. For us here on base it means increased security measures, more searches, doors locked at all times, etc.

About an hour after they made the announcement our commander called us into a meeting in which we all had to leave our cell phones outside the room (secure briefing). Sometimes people find out they are getting deployed in those kind of meetings. However, this one was just to confirm the new threat level and tell us they didn’t have any additional information. I didn’t know anything until I saw Obama’s speech that night. I watched the speech, listened to a little news afterwards, checked up on Facebook and Twitter for a little while, and since then I haven’t watched any news and just tried to stay away from it.

I didn’t want to see all the political debates about who deserves more credit, Bush or Obama. I didn’t want to hear all the conspiracy theories about the body. I don’t think it would matter if they showed the pics or not, there will always be doubters. There are still people out there who believed we never went to the moon. I think the death of Osama is a nice symbolic victory for the US and A, but it doesn’t put an end to anything by far. The war is not over. I saw people celebrating in the streets and I thought that was a bit much, but then again, I don’t think there is a right way or wrong way to feel about it. Someone who had to live through it in the city and walk home through all the shit like our boy Lp is obviously going to have different thoughts than someone who watched it all on TV in Webster, TX. The best summary I heard was from a caller on sports talk who said something like “Two parties, two administrations, one victory for one nation.”

So bottom line, the war is NOT over…USA!!! USA!!! USA!!! USA!!!...IN YOU FACE Osama!!!

Back to regularly scheduled programming: Keef, vote on this. Tp, you don’t get a vote.

I heard a new term today called “compassion fatigue”. Apparently it is what you are if you are overstressed from doing too much or just caring too much. Mize has just been diagnosed!

Well said Jug. (ns)

Blue said...

why did your threat level increase if this was a secret mission that only 15 people in the world knew about?

Blue said...

i'm smelling a coverup by jug

Jugdish said...

the real cover up should be on your face

Blue said...

that hurts me, emotionally

Beth said...

"that hurts me, emotionally"

Wuss.

tem said...

i'd feel sorry for blue, but i am recovering from compassion fatigue and the doctor said i am not to feel empathy for anything for 30 days.

tem said...

so blue should just go cry to momma about it.

tem said...

"why did your threat level increase if this was a secret mission that only 15 people in the world knew about?"


because one of those 15 is in charge of setting threat levels.

Beth said...

I think Jug is one of those 15.

Happy birthday keef!



That was yesterday, but thanks

Word coming out of the OSU Athletic Department is that Jim Tressel has known the location of Osama bin Laden for at least the last 6 months. Problem is, when asked why he didn't let anyone know, he replied that he had no idea who to call!

always a little trickier with countries that have nuclear weapons. They can't hit us, but they could, say, retaliate by hitting Israel

Contract the Gophers said...

"if it wasnt for us they'd be wiped out anyway"


if it wasn't for them, we'd be far more vulnerable to terrorist attacks; they are not only our eyes and ears in the region, and an even more attractive target than US to most terrorists...but also doing quite a bit of dirty work on the downlow that the US just wouldn't do (but are not necessarily upset that someone else is doing it)

Israel is also great World War insurance; if not the #2 strongest military in the world behind US, a close 3


China may end up sinking us economically, but it would take most of the world united against US, Israel and Western Europe to defeat us militarily

China, Russia, India, North Korea....not huge threats in war, in large part due to Israel (now random nukes from them are another story, but there's no way I'm aware of to put that genie back in the bottle)

Contract the Gophers said...

"far more vulnerable"

that's a stretch


not a bit, and it is in large part why we give them billions of dollars a year


they are like a military arm of the US really

yes israel is a tremendous ally but they should be reminded that they would probably be gone if we didnt need them as much

"they should be reminded that they would probably be gone if we didnt need them as much"


AHIK*

Keef said...

But we do need them, so it's a moo* point

USA! USA! USA! said...

but back to your original statement, i dont think pakistan would nuke any of our allies in retaliation

they probably fuck it up and nuke themselves

Contract the Gophers said...

thought you meant Pock-istan


ah, I see. No no no.....Pakistan greatly increases our vulnerability to terrorism; probably more than any other country IMO

Contract the Gophers said...

would have to be Pak or Saudi I suppose


Iran's dangerous, but seemingly on a major war level....not so much as a breeding ground for terrorists (I could be way off on that though)

Yea I'm waiting on credit approval. Looking at a pretty suite* Navigator. Or I might go the cheaper route and get a Trailblazer. Should hear back from the dealership tomorrow. They are crunching some numbers for me.

Buying a Lincoln Navigator when gas is well over $4 a gallon is the opposite of smart.

"Like my great grandpa always said. When gas gets to $4 a gallon, go with the large SUV"

Dude, I already drive a gas guzzler so it is not a change at all. And because no one is buying the big things right now, you can get a better deal.

A camaro gets the same gas mileage as a Navigator? Stop it

A camaro gets approx 15 city 22 hwy. But mine is in such rough shape it is getting even less than that.

According to the EPA, there are only 3 WORSE gas mileage SUVs. Land Rover Range Rover 4.4L, the Land Rover Discovery II 4.6L, and the Merc G500 5L.
