Earth to Secretary of State Rice!
DAMASCUS, Syria --Armed Islamic militants attempted to storm the U.S. Embassy in a brazen attack Tuesday, the government said. Four people were killed, including three of the assailants. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but an al-Qaida offshoot group was suspected, Syria's ambassador to the United States said.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice praised Syrian security agents for repelling the attack, but added it was too early to know who may have been behind it.
Who cares? Does it really matter what their names were? Or to which particular radical Islamic scumbag organization they pledged their allegiance?
"I think it's very early to try and speculate why this may have happened," said Rice, speaking at a news conference in Nova Scotia Tuesday with her Canadian counterpart, Peter MacKay.
I'm going way out a limb here, guessing that maybe, just maybe, it has something to do with the somewhat relevant fact that the perpetrators were Islamic scumbag terrorists, and that unleashing violent, unprovoked attacks against the civilized world is WHAT THEY DO!
Is it really that difficult a concept to grasp?
If a farmer (outside of Massachusetts, mind you) finds some of his chickens missing and sees a fox in his field enjoying a chicken dinner, one thing he doesn't do is sit around trying to figure out WHY the fox did what he did.
1. He's a fox.
2. He was hungry.
Yeah, that was real tough.
POP QUIZ: What does the farmer do next.
(A) Invites the fox over to negotiate a settlement, through which the fox will be given an agreed-upon allotment of chickens on the first Tuesday of every month. Unless that Tuesday falls on a holy day of fasting, or some other bullshit like that. In that case, the fox will get a double helping of chickens the month before and after, so as to not offend his religious sensitivities.
(B) Puts up a "No Eating Of Chickens Allowed" sign in 14 different languages at 10-foot intervals around the perimEter of the chicken coop fence, and promises to hire a translator for the fox in the event the fox is not versed in any of the languages given. All costs for these signs and services will be taken from the pigs' food budget.
(C) Sends a letter to 36 other farmers, some as far away as three counties over, seeking permission to fix the hole in his fence, and promises not to take any action until all the farmers can agree on a meeting date and place to sit down and discuss the matter.
(D) Grabs a rifle and shoots the bastard right between his beady little eyes.
It's called animalism, defined as "indifference to all but the physical appetites", where the physical appetite in question is the destruction of the industrialized, especially the United States of America and her allies, and the very belief system upon which our country was founded.
This behavior is not based on rational thought, moral values, or the differentiation between right and wrong, as defined by the civilized societies of the world. It's an instinctive behavior that cannot be reasoned with or altered through diplomatic means. It can only be stopped by a commensurate use of force, preferably with very large explosions.
Hmmm...how about this one next?
