Lurking Fear: Bengazi is not the political hot potato your team of retards are making it out to be.

 
2012-10-31 01:34:04 PM  
It is kind of a stupid point to make. Even if carriers had been in the area, planes would have had to fly all the way across Syria (Libya's path to the sea) in order to attack. And, what would Czechoslovakia think about that?

Talawsohu: 1. Bengazi was a tragedy.
2. The tragedy was not the fault of the U.S.

It bothers me that the time someone dies is more important that that they are dead.


Well, they are going to be dead a long time, while dying is a one-time event, so there is a scarcity factor to be considered.

Epoch_Zero: Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: Obama should have sent an AC-130 into the hurricane to blow it up.

Pssh, everybody knows that Obama had the CIA create the hurricane with HAARP in the first place in order to get praise from one of his most vocal critics.


Ah, top sectet Project Bongo. Well played, McFartislam.

HeartBurnKid: Lurking Fear: That doesn't even make sense. Much like Romney's tax plan, foreign policy, or campaign in general.

You do realize any carrier dispatched to Bengazi would have taken a week to get there, right? Guess what- Bengazi is not the political hot potato your team of retards are making it out to be.

Not to mention, carriers aren't exactly a great weapon against a small terrorist group in an urban setting...


Goddammit, that's why we should still have our battleships except the damn dimmocrats (amirite?) can't stand to see America succeed.

FTFY

This may come as a shocking surprise to you, but the Pentagon doesn't call the president every time they make a decision regarding the deployment of troops.

Anyone so simple the sieze on Benghazi as an outrage as if there was some simple response and simple fix is simple themselves. Like dumb as a farking rock simple. Plainly and willfully ignorant not just about Benghazi itself, or Libya but the entire Middle East and whats happening there and what might be best to happen there. Sorry farking Morons. Despite what you want to believe from watching 'yer stories on tha TV box' or hearing from dickholes like Limbaugh, a cruise missle or force is not only not the answer here, and is usually not the best answer anywhere.

Dear President Romney,

My research has found that Benghazi is a political potato.

Love your policy adviser,

Teufelaffe: This may come as a shocking surprise to you, but the Pentagon doesn't call the president every time they make a decision regarding the deployment of troops.


It's simple:
Obama is highest on chain of command, so when the SEALs kill bin Laden he doesn't deserve credit. Wait, that was the GOP's stance two months ago. Now he's responsible for every single combat related death ever ever. As long as you only count dead Americans.

Can you explain to me how the SEALs called Obama? Is there like a batphone or something?

And if you don't think Obama was out apologising then, you're a FarkLibtard.


I keep seeing references to the Obama Apology Tour. Does anyone have any references to it? Did Obama go around apologizing for America? (it's talked about like everyone should know what it was so I'm embarrassed to ask for references but it's the best way to learn (I guess))

I've googled it and watched some videos but most of them reference the Tour like everyone already knows about it. There is a Hannity clip that shows him talking about mistakes Bush made. Is that what it's all about?

It's what the right wing media echo chamber termed one of Obama's overseas trips.

Simply put, it's made up bullshiat. "apology tour" is a dead giveaway that the person saying it is a partisan hack.

Well, he had to have four dead Americans, because just one doesn't make for a good footrest. If properly stacked, dead political footballs make for great lawn furniture.

obama,

"The minute I found out what was happening . . . I gave the directive," he said, "to make sure we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to do. I guarantee you everybody in the CIA and military knew the number-one priority was making sure our people are safe."

so the people in the cia and military refused to follow orders?

It is so sad that Ronald Reagan destroyed mental health facilities in this country. It would be far better if this person was in a fully staffed mental health facility receiving the care they need instead of at the library posting his delusional insane fantasies on Fark.

Obama traveled to various foreign countries but didn't scream "AMERICA, F*CK YEAH!!" in the face of every foreign dignitary, leader, or citizen he encountered. Instead, he acted like an adult and spoke frankly and honestly about many different issues. Obama was therefore "apologizing" for America.

I can go a little further than that. It was a tragedy that may have been preventable, and we should have a commission that takes a comprehensive look at what went wrong and how we should improve embassy and diplomat security in the future.

What we shouldn't have are chuckleheads like Issa putting national security in jeopardy to score political points, or assholes like Romney going on TV to smirk like a little dickhead while he shows the world how proud he is of his insensitivity and ignorance.

Comments like this remind me of one simple tool: If you disagree with a comment someone makes, replace in your mind the speaker with the opposition and then ask yourself if you still disagree. Always a good rule of thumb to politics.
