Hearts 'n' Minds

Pakistan Village Bombed, Keyser Söze Still At Large.

DAMADOLA, Pakistan - Pakistani officials on Saturday angrily condemned a purported CIA airstrike meant to target al-Qaida's No. 2 man, saying he wasn't there and "innocent civilians" were among at least 17 men, women and children killed in a village near the Afghan border.

Thousands of tribesmen staged protests and a mob set fire to the office of a U.S.-backed aid agency as Pakistan's people and government showed increasing frustration over a recent series of suspected U.S. attacks along the frontier that appear aimed at Islamic militants.

This must be part of our mission to civilize the wogs. Only when we've not only bombed the bejesus out of them, but bombed some Jesus into them, will they quit stoning homosexuals, and gang-raping and honor-killing uppity women. I'm sure they're getting the message.

While villagers denied outsiders were present, the Foreign Ministry's statement said a preliminary investigation indicated there was a "foreign presence" in the area — which it said had most likely been targeted from across the border in Afghanistan.

Pakistan's government insists it does not allow the 20,000 U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan to cross the border in the hunt for Taliban fighters or al-Qaida members believed to be hiding in the remote mountains of the frontier region.

Yeah well, they also insist they don't have a bunch of Taliban heavies hiding in the mountain hamlets. I'm sure that's equally true. Still, we need to review what's working and what's not working here. We've offered $25 million bounties for bin Laden and al-Zawahri, we've sent strike forces in, we've bombed villages and killed plenty of innocent people. This is already a seething, loosely anti-American populace, there's no need to incite them further. Perhaps not letting bin Laden escape at Tora Bora in the first place would've helped.

This sort of thing also plays into the hands of our good friend Mahmoud "Let's wipe Israel off the map" Ahmadinejad. A pissed-off Pakistani citizenry could incite a destabilizing coup in that country, which would likely replace Musharraf with someone more Iran-friendly and less USA-friendly. So, you know, just keep it up, o masters of the universe. You've completely destabilized Iraq, now it's time to move on to South Asia.

Gee. Maybe we coulda won some of them over by helping out after the earthquake.

Thanks to my perusing your blog, specifically, "Hammer Of The Blogs" (traced from your comment on ESCHATON), I have arrived at what I believe is a defensible inference. Both you and your readers would welcome news of in-your-face overt opposition to your "smirking chimp", my "dum'ya botch".

In plainer terms, I want to run for Representative for Pennsylvania's 10th Congressional District on a platform calling for the impeachment of President George Walker Bush.

Incidentally, I deliberately referred to your blog, to indicate that I visited your blog as an individual, and not as a spammer. Yes, that last is an illustion to a "pre-deconstruction" chick flick with a rating of two and a half hankies.

Ah, before you click on any of the enclosed hyperlinks, please read the entirely of my comment. For example, the three planks I nailed together in my platform out to get me elected. "impeach bush" is the first plank. The second is "impeach bush". The third is like the second, "impeach bush".

To continue, the first hyperlink below leads to the opening salvo of my campaign.

As for the second hyperlink, it leads to evidence that my candidacy is about more than opposition solely for the sake of opposition.

oh, yeah, I should add that, in Epimethean Comment, I make the case that nominating Judge Alito to the Supreme Court is tantamount to treason.
