A Wretched Hive Of Scum And Villainy

Obi-Wan: Mos Eisley spaceport - You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Speaking of wretched hives...

Jennifer Rubin at the War Criminal Post:
This is a sobering reminder for those who think it’s too expensive to wage a war against jihadists. I spoke to Gary Schmitt of the American Enterprise Institute, who has been critical of proposed cuts in defense and of President Obama’s Afghanistan withdrawal plan. “There has been a lot of talk over the past few months on how we’ve got al-Qaeda on the run and, compared with what it once was, it’s become a rump organization. But as the attack in Oslo reminds us, there are plenty of al-Qaeda allies still operating. No doubt cutting the head off a snake is important; the problem is, we’re dealing with global nest of snakes.”

The Washington Post no longer employs an ombudsman (whether the last quit in despair or was fired as a useless expenditure, I do not know). But the WaPoop can't just go full shrieking harpy, can it?

Update: Ms. Rubin has issued her nonpology.

I won't quote any of it, Thers has a fine shorter. If the WaPo had a shred of dignity left, it would fire this woman immediately (of course, if it did she wouldn't have been hired in the first place).

Here's a picture of the jihadist (h/t M.B.):

Last Update
: That armpatch.

I've a friend who works in WaPo newsroom, says Rubin really does want to succeed The World's Shittiest Human as The World's Shittiest Human when The World Shittiest Human either retires or dies.

I think she's doing a pretty good job impressing Fred Hiatt that she *is* shitty enough.

Because only aircraft carrier battle groups can deal w/ the menace of a few thousand violent fundamentalists who are dispersed around the world.

In which case we should bring the carriers home to protect liberal enclaves on the coasts from Heartland terrorists.

Let's play a game. It's called "Identify the Terrorist".

Ok, on Side A we have:

Dood plants a bomb in a downtown building where the government works, then deploys trained, heavily armed shooters to sweep an island of "enemies".

Over on Side B we have:

Teams of indigenous fighters offended and angered by the presence of thousands of foreign soldiers occupying their communities, choosing winners and losers, and killing and taking away to harsh detention anybody who disagrees with them, fights them with asymmetric methods including bombing, assassination and guerrilla hit and run actions.

And representing Side C:

Unleash massive violence to invade and occupy sovereign nations for opaque and obviously dishonest reasons. Use unmanned aircraft to blow up houses and cars of civilians in remote regions for reasons they are unwilling to specify. Threaten to interfere with any local political process with secret operations, bombings and influence operations.

Wow. This is kind of hard, man...

Hold on mikey. What color are those Side B guys?

This is important to a large portion of information warfare's target audience.

mikey said...

They're various colors, but **SSssshhhhhh** they might be muslims. Sometimes...

Holy shit. WaPo or WaPoop, as you so aptly point out, has gone down the shithole so far I doubt they will ever emerge on the editorial front. How do we tell the difference between them and the Washington Times?

Bet Carl Bernstein loves that.

Guess their base has become the same bimbo's and bimbettes as the ones Sarah Palin grifts from..hey, if they got the money, shriek away assholes, just don't expect a coherent,logical thought out of them all combined.

Randal Graves said...

Sure, implanting explosives in one's rack or nads is criminal genius, but to paint oneself as the poster boy of Aryan living, I'm impressed.

Speaking of shitholes, Mos Eisley Spaceport.

Thought you were talking about the Wi Governor's mansion.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Haha, I saw that one, DKW. But this family blog, damnit@#*#(&(*!

zrm, you should trade Walker and his mansion in for a Wii Governor's mansion.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I'd like to trade him in on a somewhat bright, but angry, badger.

Blowed up if you do, blowed up if you don't.

Post updated for the last time with a closeup of that armpatch, along with some similar examples.

I think it might be time for some flower pictures.

Re: last update.

Nope, nothing in common at all.

No wonder all the wingnuts are all butthurt. Pamela Gellar is just pissed he did it before she did.
