Faster, Peterscat! Kill! Kill!



Congressman Peter (IRA!) King and Ralph "Blood and Guts" Peters, talking about the scary Mooselimbs and their mosques. Boldly, even! They're not afraid of being called racists!

Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters (Ret.) joined the Army in 1976. He never served in combat.

More Ralph
:
There will be no peace. At any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple conflicts in mutating forms around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and ultimately more decisive. The de facto role of the US armed forces will be to keep the world safe for our economy and open to our cultural assault. To those ends, we will do a fair amount of killing.

"The Taliban can save us a lot of hassles and a lot of legal bills."



Does the Lieutenant Colonel have an opinion, re: Julian Assange? OF COURSE he does:



Psycho Peters, qu’est que c’est?

Since pointing out the factual errors of such rantings is fruitless, 'tis more enjoyable to nelsonmuntz them as the scaffolding of civilization crashes on their skull.

Sure, it'll crash on ours, but 'bout time we give the cockroaches run of the place.

Shorter Ralph Peters:

I only made it to Lt. Col after 20 years and only to the remainder table as a novelist, so I'm going to focus on being a warmongering asshole.

Damn, they're not even trying to sugar-coat the bloodlust with talk of "freedom" or "protecting the American people" anymore.

Brando, that's all that was needed for a permanent gig as "FAUX military analyst".

I say we get Mr. Peters a buncha war videogames and tell him they're real.

"Kill the guy?" Um, wow.

Brando said...

Substance, I would love to shoot that asshole in Call of Duty. I'd probably do better against him than all these 14-year-olds who keep filling me with virtual bullets.

"A fair amount of killing"

Hmm. What do you suppose constitutes a "fair amount of killing"?

Can one terrified nineteen year old eleven bravo do a fair amount of killing on a company perimeter in one nightmarish night?

Or is that nothing, a blip, perhaps an UN fair amount of killing. Those kids dying hard on the wire under the flares didn't die fair, sure, and those we unfolded and rolled into green bags later the next day would wonder if they had died in fair numbers.

No, Colonel Peters, I don't think we DO need to do a fair amount of killing. I think I can show you solid historical evidence that has not been an effective solution, and I think perhaps it's time for you and your ilk to stand down and let some actually human beings take it from here...

Smut Clyde said...

Being an actual human being did not work for Col. Peters so he has moved on to Plan B.

I realize that's not as serious as this post, but it's a lot happier... and more hopeful.
