It looks like Herman Cain is really into something. You might think the reason to celebrate is his surge in the latest polls but that is not it. Cain can be proud of himself for he is now a target of our unfair and unbalanced media!

Check it out this little nugget that is in the main page for CNN today:

Oooohhh! Amidst all the nonsense of the ‘Wall Street protest’ a little stab at the ugly Republicans! But not any Republican… The one most people have never even heard about! And when you read the article you see this Cain guy is really crazy here! After all, you got to be a radical to say that:

“It is not a person’s fault because they succeeded. It is a person’s fault if they failed. And so this is why I don’t understand these demonstrations and what is it that they’re looking for.”

Now, I have to admit that Cain is not my favorite among all Republican contenders. I think Romney is better qualified (and still think he will be our candidate). However, it is impossible not to enjoy this total discombobulation that Cain is causing to the liberal establishment.

After all, wasn’t the tea party a white movement full of ignorant racists? How in the world can they be favoring a black man over, say, a nice whithey like Rick Santorum (who is by the way much more right wing than Cain)?

And how about Cain’s life story? Can you imagine the horror ivory tower liberals would face if they had to criticize a candidate who was born to a very poor family (his mother was a cleaning woman and his father, who was raised on a farm, was a chauffeur) and grew to be not only a politician but a incredible educated (BA in Math, Masters in Computer Science) and successful man?

Cain is the nightmare match for Obama. Not only the race card would be gone but the comparison between the two is almost unfair. Obama is the boy who was raised by his rich grandmother in Hawaii. He is the spoiled college student who did drugs because he was bored. He is the guy who has never worked for a corporation or created one job in his life. How could he even try to criticize the older, much wiser man who rose out of poverty and has more life experience than Obama’s cabinet?

Cain would trounce Obama.

War is never funny. Small wars, medium wars, it all ends up with a bunch of people dead and a fresh new stack of debt in your treasury. But… It has been truly hilarious to see Obama and his troupe deal with Libya and Saddam, I mean, Gadhafi.

And what you have here is failure to communicate. Or to be more accurate, an unwillingness to clearly communicate. According to the White House spokesman, Libya is a “a time-limited, scope-limited military action, in concert with our international partners, with the objective of protecting civilian life in Libya from Moammar Gadhafi and his forces.” Seriously dude…

It is obvious to anyone with half of a brain that what we are doing in Libya is an act of war. It is even more obvious that we are doing that because Libya is a strategically important country for the US and Europe (especially to Europe) and finally, that strategic importance includes the fact that there is a bunch of oil in that ground. Not the only reason, but an important one.

But since Obama could not use a weapons of mass destruction line here, he had to use the ‘avoiding a massacre’ line. Both are true by the way: The same way Saddam told us that he had WMDs, Gadhafi did say he would destroy Benghazi. It is also true that both are valid reasons to get us involved in wars. Again, not the only reasons but an important part of the decision process.

The same way that Iraq didn’t become unnecessary after we found out that WMDs were not what we thought, to say that we are in Libya just to ‘save civilians’ is absurd. First of all, we are and will kill civilians too. The rebels are killing pro-Gadhafi civilians. When you throw bombs you are never 100% accurate. We might end up saving more than what we kill, but that cannot be your only reason to go to war because it is simply an impossible goal to begin with.

At the end of the day, the main difference between Bush and Obama here is that Bush was willing to admit what he was doing. He was going to war to remove a dictator we really didn’t like for a variety of reasons. What Obama is doing however, is an incredible dancing around the truth act because one of his campaign issues was that we should not have been involved in Iraq – a war of choice, remember that?

Well Mr.Obama, let me tell you something: Libya is another war of choice. And even though it is a much smaller mess at this point, it could become another Iraq. What happens if Gadhafi refuses to leave? Are we going to just keep giving these Rebels larger and larger weapons? What happens when the fighting becomes an urban guerrilla style battle? Do we just sit back and watch? Will the carnage be that much smaller by then? What if Gadhafi still wins?

Bush might have messed up in the execution of the Iraq war but at least he knew that just bombing people doesn’t do much of anything.

Obama is making this huge and risky bet that Gadhafi will simply give up. Well, Bush 41 made a similar bet in 1991 and his son ended up paying the debt. Let’s just hope that Obama is more lucky. One thing is for sure: He is not being honest about what he is doing.

The issue at hand here is really simple: Publishing these secret documents is a crime against the US. Whoever ‘leaked’ these should be tried for treason. Wikileaks definitely broke US law (at least aiding and abetting; maybe terrorism?) and should be persecuted as much as possible – not sure how international law works here.


The one positive side of this crime is to show just how diplomacy is a fool’s game. A guy at the radio said that many Middle Eastern governments ‘sounded pretty much like Israel’ when talking about Iran. However, they do nothing. They want the US to do something just to condemn whatever happens later at the UN.

It is Hypocrisy with a capital H.


Obama of couse shares a large share of the blame for what happened today. This is not the first leak and he did nothing after the previous ones. My guess is that he was secretly happy about all the dirty info on Iraq and thought the Wikileaks guys would stop after that.

Now if people die because of what happened (and I bet they will – you just wait and see if we don’t have a terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia soon) part of the blood will be in Obama’s hands.
