Good Morning. There's been some interesting breaking news this morning.

Deja 2003
Author: BobR    Date: 01/08/2020 14:26:43

After 9/11/2001, the U.S. was shocked and ready for revenge. After the smoke cleared, it was obvious the attack was coordinated by Osama bin Laden's group of extremists. We made an effort to go after them, but Afghanistan has never been an easy battlefield. At the time, Dubya was obsessed with Iraq and Saddam Hussein, and used America's shock as a tool against the American people. Cheney and others falsified the threat posed by Iraq as an excuse to invade and eventually capture Hussein.

In the years afterward, after numerous investigations and leaked documents, the truth has become clearer. We broke a country, tortured and killed innocent people, and left the area destabilized, all in the pursuit of revenge and American pride. It will all be stain on our history. No one involved in creating the mess has ever paid for their crimes.

So here we are just over 18 years later, and we are once again embroiled in a mess in Iraq of our own making. Due to complacence, our embassy in Iraq (supposedly the most fortified in the world) was attacked. Back in 2001, we had a moron for a president. In 2020, we have a moron who is also a pathological liar and narcissist. Can it be worse? Yes.

Good Morning.

We find ourselves poised on the edge of war yet again. Although not by date, by calendar we've been at this for a whopping 20 years now, with no end in sight.

What next?

After the occupant in the White House killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, it looks like he's turned Soleimani into an Iranian Marter.

Not so Fluffy Friday
Author: BobR    Date: 01/03/2020 14:31:38

Mala has no power at her office, so I am filling in. As you all probably know by now, tRump ordered a retaliatory strike in Iraq that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran's elite Quds Force.

Sure - his presence in Iraq was problematic.

However, so is this unilateral military action that was not only done without Congressional approval, but was done without even notifying them.

Eric tRump knew in advance.

This is Wag the Dog and more a reaction to his impeachment than the killing of a civilian U.S. contractor.

I've vacillated between WWIII being in the Middle East and being cyber - tRump may have just made that choice.

Happy New Year
Author: Raine    Date: 01/01/2020 14:06:51

Some of you are probably nursing a hangover. I think we all are, with regard to this past year. Some of it was the good stuff (like tRump getting impeached), and some of it was the bad stuff (like... well... pretty much everything else).

On a personal level, it was a pretty good year, but for the country and the world - not so much. I remember when I was a kid, 2020 seemed so far off into the future. We were promised fly cars. Instead we have a mess that doesn't seem to improve - it seems we're digressing (or DEVOlving).

Anyway, here's hoping for a good 2020.

Good Morning.

It's the last day of 2019. As it's been pointed out several places on the interwebs, tomorrow marks the first day of January, 2020, and the decade. One can hope the next ten years combined will be better than the last 365 days past, but I digress.

One Goal: 2020 Edition

This is the last blog I will write this decade. That's pretty hard to comprehend, to be honest. 2019 was a trying one for this nation for sure but there is a bright side

Don't know about the rest of you, but I would so much rather be here then at work.
