We came, we saw, we left... the keys...

I doubt that Obama knows how to drive a Hummer...
Some say he knows very well how to deliver one.
Who is dumber the guy leaving the keys in the Humvee or the guy drawing the comic where Humvees have keys?
It's for illustrative purposes: Most people don't know that military humvees don't have keys.
I didn't know ISIS' spoke English. I guess I learned two things today.
Damn near all Americans (and not a small slice of Europeans) would be astoundingly surprised at the education of those who compete with us for natural resources.
I grew up in Madrid. The kids there spoke Spanish, French, English, and maybe Portuguese. They learned algebra in elementary school. I can only guess at what a talented foe would learn.
Too bad 54% of them can't find employment...
or the guy with no sense of humor?
If you think any of this shit is funny, then you have larger issues than I do, and it's obvious you should be seeing my mental health professional.
I can assure you there are a lot of people that lost their lives over there for a BS war, and now they are sending more to die. I find nothing about any of this amusing in the least. There is nothing funny about any of this.
The current trend of laughing at everything is self-defeating and like the Joker you will laugh your way into the grave.
Ever heard of comic relief? You're whining to a bunch of guys (and i do mean guys) who are more sick of this shit than most anyone else on the net. Go unload your discontent on congress, or better yet, on that kenyan with the big ears who let them waltz into iraq unimpeded in the first place.
Calm down Francis!
RED ALERT: OBONGO ANNOUNCES DICTATORSHIP!!! NOT A JOKE!
Is he going to legalize them, arm them, and turn them into the "national security force" that is "just as strong, just as well funded as the military" he spoke of in 2008? God help us
Don't think Emperor Barry Ooh Mao Mao can do it? Well, according to Dick Durbin all he has to do is BORROW THE POWER from Congress!!!! This is all just a bad dream, right? http://www.cnsnews.com/mrctv-blog/eric-scheiner/sen-durbin-obama-will-bo...
yeah....watch SCOTUS rubber stamp it if he does, and introduce a new amendment to the constitution (straight from SCOTUS since they now have precedent to write law,) saying that a president may borrow any congressional power, just so long as the senate majority leader approves...
I do miss Francis Sawyer... for you newbies, he was entertaining... if not slightly off.
The good old days... If you wish to think of them that way
Yes, he was.
His name was Francis_Sawyer.
Probably died driving a Mercedes that exploded and launched its engine like a missile, while the burning car moments later crashed into a Palm tree at 70mph in a palm tree on a quiet 35mph palm tree lined avenue just like the one in California.
That is just silly.
He resurfaced a few months later under an alias and was just as entertaining, but was banned again when his telltale style became too obvious.
Maybe he'll be more subtle if he chooses to return, and those who suspect that it's him, won't "out" him with well - meaning Welcome Back comments.
Great comment and reference.
I would bet that only 4 people caught the Stripes reference.
"Any of you homos touch me... I'll kill ya."
Sure, you call it whining. I call it how I see it. A bunch of grown men with the mindset of children pretending to "deal" with getting screwed daily by dodging the bullet of being the first guy to lose everything while laughing at the misfortune of others.
Yeah, go fuck yourself and your overly entitled opinion of moral relativism. Your very lifestyle is built upon the graves of the same people whom you are laughing at. I find nothing amusing about any of this, and if you POS's can't handle that, then I think you need to do some soul searching, because some of you have apparently lost all sense of reality and are merely laughing about how fucked up things are getting.
In the traditional sense of the word, that makes you the "fool"/Joker.
If you've been drinking, put down the bottle.
If you haven't, have a drink.
Tell me how I am wrong.
You are justifiably upset, as are we. When this isis offensive was first reported, zh was clamoring over how fucking stupid an unacceptable it was for both the u.s. and iraqi govt to let it happen, ready to break out nailguns, rope and guillotines. Dont take out your frustrations on us just because you are too cowardly to go after the real clowns who are responsible for this crock of shit, and by the way, nobody is forcing any soldier to participate and die in these sham ME wars. Do you see a fucking draft going on?
Not fair. There are some folks (not all of our soldiers, I grant you that) who are born with a protective instinct. What they do is noble. That wonderful, natural, instinct is being exploited by the powers that be. The soldiers are being put in a hellish spot. They believe, not in the politicians, but in the concept of the country and protecting it while the rest of us live lives worth protecting (or not) free. That they believe it does not make them stupid, just wonderfully idealistic. If anything, we have failed them by allowing these politicans to wander so far away from the constitition.
There are wolves, sheep, and watch dogs. Watchdogs are good guys and gals. Please don't dis them by over generalizing.
Thats a fact, Nid is one of the noble ones.
People go off (for whatever pretense, education, patriotism, adventure, self sacrifice whatever) and put their lives and their families lives on hold...and this is the respect they get?
There is no honor in fighting for slugs.
Let it burn along with the slugs inside it.
History is a bitch.
Use it, or lose it.
THE FATE OF EMPIRES
SEARCH FOR SURVIVAL
Sir John Glubb
I was talking more about all of the people over there that died.
It only goes to show where some of your biases are to those of you who think I meant only the soldiers.
I was 100% right though, none of you can stand here and say making fun of people whom died is in any way shape or form respectful of the lives that were stolen unjustly by these would be tyrants. It's not a matter of who was killed, just that they were killed in the games of mad-men.
You can call me noble or whatever BS label you want, you just need to remember it was you that labelled me. You are the one that is classifying me so you can compartmentalize what I say so you don't have to process it directly. Just remember that the next time you see my post. You guys are part of the problem if you're laughing at the topic of their deaths caused by these people.
That is the 'Jon Stewart' method of indoctrination, con them by "humor". It works exceedingly well as you can see by this generations youth.
"That is the 'Jon Stewart' method of indoctrination, con them by "humor".
Better pump your brakes there boy, that man's a national treasure.
Because Stephen Colbert said so, I know....
That's the point. This place is turning into an echo-chamber of that sort of media, and it's dishonest.
You are yelling at the wrong people.
It is unsustainable.
Supply chains must fail.
That is the only way anything is really going to shift or change.
Your rage is righteous (beautiful actually). The situation is absurd. We clown here and blow off steam. We discuss our fears. When we ain't posting on-line, we try to get ready. I am working overtime extra for extra money. I jogged 5 miles today. And I come on here to hang out with folks who feel like I do so I don't feel absolutely alone.
Love is the plan. The plan is death. Watch. Get your bullshit filters on. Know there are bastards out there theiving with impunity. Wait. It will crash under its own weight.
Love you, if that makes any sense at all to you.
Now that's the spirit Missy. Aloha my friend....
Always good to see your avatar. We have YEARS doing this together, my friend! Years. Peace and love to you too. Your beaches help a lot with that frame of mind. Peace and Aloha.
Some people aspire to leaving their last breath in bed,
While others prefer the taste of blood in their mouths from mortal wounds.
A.K.A. "The Dogs of War."
You're not wrong, per se. You go first. What are you doing about it?
CONCERN TROLL IS VERY CONCERNED...
Hey instead of lecturing everyone, why don't you saddle up and do some band-aid work in Iraq and then maybe I'll listen to what you have to say.
Bush, Blair and Howard should be before the Hague on crimes against humanity for this catastrophe.
Agree. They kicked over a hornets nest and walked away.
There was a film with Nicholas Cage, The Merchant of War (I might be wrong about the title), in the film there is all kinds of funding from various sources to buy weapons and fund wars.
Bush, Blair and Howard should be before the Hague on crimes against humanity for this catastrophe.
There are all kinds of people who have contributed to this mess. Now you know why everyone seems to hate their leaders. They are the proverbial "low hanging fruit".
FGB, I think it was "Lord of War". Pretty good flick.
No one is sending/forcing anyone over there. It's a 100% volunteer army I thought.
Sure, you go volunteer and then see how much of a choice about who to invade you have. ;-)
Odd that you think that is funny. No, I won't volunteer. Whoever does volunteer has made the choice to be a mercenary for the monsters who are giving the orders.
There's nothing amusing about it.
You are an entitled prat to say that. Someone has to keep your lifestyle going.
get off your fucking high horse. we all pay the piper eventually. some of us will do so with our eyes open. shut up and learn the difference.
and why make enemies with those who just might be on the same road?
Tells me I'm doing something wrong or negative while saying I'm the one on the High Horse.
if you're looking for special victim status you've come to the wrong place.
When their vain ambitions are crushed by reality, they will throw out all illusions of soft tyranny.
NEW YORK (Reuters) - "The U.S. war in Iraq has cost $1.7 trillion with an additional $490 billion in benefits owed to war veterans, expenses that could grow to more than $6 trillion over the next four decades counting interest, a study released on Thursday said.
The war has killed at least 134,000 Iraqi civilians and may have contributed to the deaths of as many as four times that number..."
In addition, 4486 American deaths and up to 50,000 wounded.
All for nothing. A war we should never have started in the first place.
Despite my attempt to make light of the events in Iraq, I find nothing humorous about the loss of life and treasure for which our past and present leaders should be held responsible.
Just pure evil.
That is just the start of it with all of the malinvestments made here in the US during the same time. I can not understand how any of this is funny to anyone other than a simpleton that doesn't understand how this is going to affect him directly or indirectly.
Simpletons? No I respectfully disagree.
Gallows humor has the social effect of strengthening the morale of the oppressed and undermines the morale of the oppressors. According to Wylie Sypher, "to be able to laugh at evil and error means we have surmounted them.
Personally, I have not surmounted them as yet.
(Working on it. )
Sweet post, AB. Those who cannot appreciate gallows humor won't understand it anyway. They have not suffered enough.
Did you lose your best friend in a war? Were you there with him? Do not presume to tell me who hasn't suffered enough while sitting in the comfort of your home in front of a computer.
If the best friend was yours and if you are the one who was there with him, then you were both volunteers. Volentia non fit injuria. The Iraqi people and their country were not volunteers in the rivers of blood opened by USUK for Israhell; the children born with the most abominable deformaties were not volunteers; the 500,000 dead children that that Joo bitch Albright thought were worth it were not volunteers, the despoiling of Iraq, once the most advanced arab country in services and infrastructure, was not the action or wish of Iraqi. No, that would have been carried out by the fucking volunteers, the scumbags who pissed on the ragheads and raped and killed and burned their children. or just shot whole families. HooRah, USA USA USA! I want to say that I hope you are haunted to you soon to be dying day; but my Christian upbringing gives me pause, and I say that I hope that some day soon you can comes to terms with your time there and seek forgiveness and indeed forgive yourself and then perhaps go on to live a life of true courage and meaning and useful productivity.
What the fuck is an Iraqi? Isn't that some construct of the British monarchy?
Don't even try that bullshit here.
Check out its comment history.
Check out the Crusades.
Those that forget history, are doomed to repeat it.
Great.... Another asshole patronizing me.
If you feel bad about anything you've done in your life feel free to stand in front of the class and let them judge you as well. Until then shut the fuck up and quit being such a statist with your guilt trip. You live by your set of rules and I live by mine. I'm not behaving aggressive towards you, and you shouldn't be trying to coerce me.
If you want to preach, then preach properly.
7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Really tired of dealing with some of you fakes. When are the real agents going to come on here and show us who they are?
Violently agree . I have not forgotten the Abu Graib scandal perpetrated by this volunteer army . All very patriotic and idealistic folks I am quite sure . Idealism is one thing , but if you don't have the brains to see that you are going to be abused for something entirely different than what they are telling you , then you have failed miserably
"Omg, terrorists are back in iraq and we need to help!" (after OUR govt gives iraq billions of our taxpayer dollars and they promptly plundered it, all over a false flag war that was about defending israel, oil and juicing the defense industry)
"These rag head muslims will be the end of the world!" (ISRAEL will be the end of the world. They exist on stirring up wars, which cranks up spending and the printing press which favors bankers and the status quo, and have repeatedly done so over the last CENTURY)
"We must defend freedom and democracy around the world" (while monetarily enslaving these countries before other countries get a chance)
Who are the simpletons here? Does anyone on zh parrot that tripe above, in quotes? we get it
Alinsky: Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. This ends when it's ridiculed,sufficently.
That's why the Hague is too good for our war criminals and treasonous ex-leaders.
Time for Frontier justice and a return of the Class of '76. 1776.
Some sort of authorisation must be present, or the HMMWV designer was the dumbest of all.
That is how ALL MILITARY VEHICLES are. If you know the proper sequence to start it, you can hop in and drive away.
"Capitan!!! They're firing on us!!!!!"
"Get this piece of shit started and let's roll out!!"
"Oh Shit, Sir! I left the KEYS in my other pants!"
Keys in a military vehicle would be a death sentence.
One is drawing a comic, and the other is arming a rising tide of righteous anger lead by crazy people who want to kill us for the crimes of our government.
What do you think?
You know, Snoopy cannot fly his doghouse to shoot down the Red Barron as well.... FYI
Open your favourite search engine. Enter the key words: DEFINE SATIRE.
Reality is even more funny. Military vehicles don't have keys, they just have a push button!
Something has to get the engine going, but yeah, that's true.
Not to split hairs, but HMMWVs have a turn switch. 1/4 turn, wait a couple of seconds for your glow plugs to warm up, light goes off, another 1/4 turn and your engine turns over and starts. Same goes for some of the many different MRAP vehicles.
Some of our older armored vehicles such as Tanks, IFVs, APCs (and yes, some MRAPs) have a separate master power switch and a start button.
And Mooch. Barry sucks her cock too, and licks her balls.
Just as he cozied up to the Viet-Cong, McCain stands with ISIS! http://www.blacklistednews.com/ISIS_Terrorists_Post_a_Selfie_with_John_M...
You see how fast that "rumor" from Chicago disappeared in the media even the fringe. That says alot about what may or may not be true, I think there is more to that story.
Obummer or Hummer?
Drats, I wrecked it, I upvoted AF's comment when it was at "69"!!! Sorry!
Iraq isn't the only place "we" have left billions of dollars of military equipment and hardware that was "too expensive" to ship back home!!
Another byproduct of Kenyesian logic aka madness!!!!
if you leave it overthrow will come.
No but he knows how to give a hummer.
I've been wondering about the bank ISIS found the 425 million in ...What bank, has that kind of hard physical asset on locatiion?
I'm just guessing here,but I suspect it wouldn't be US of A bank.
Zero may not be able to drive a hummer, but Reggie Love says he knows how to give one.
Wheres the next strip where they do america a favor and chase Obozo down with ak's ripping full auto?
He golfs cause he heard Bush was in to Gulf.
barry the bottom
It doesn't even matter. What's happening is what everyone knew would happen in the '90s, but somehow forgot about when it came time to invade.
RIP America 1776 - 2000.
It's all technicalities. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't W in his flight suit standing in front of the mission accomplished banner, but I suppose each one blends into the other after awhile.
1776 was a hegelian coup.
Walk the talk
You can blame the worst of Iraq on either of them.
But there is no denying, we have had the most pitiful back to back presidents in U.S. history.
And after a horrible first term, we put them back into power again.
Who is the bigger fool?
I would claim the president's have gotten progressively worse since JFK, but that's only because those are the only ones I remember.
Re downtrend since JFK... generally a trend, but broken by RReagan. Nixon had some good points, well, 2 anyway... one was that he at least was on our side!
I remember McGovern promising to legalize weed.
It's kind of notable, that nobody who isn't pitiful, or sleazy, even wants to run for president. I would sign onto a Constitutional amendment that said you had to serve at least one term as a state governor, in order to run for president. (Yeah, I know, W would have qualified. I'm open to suggestions.... )
Your comment assumes there is some difference between who we elect and who they let us elect. Your disdain for the outcomes would seem to suggest you understand there is no difference. And yet you give credence to the system and the ability of your vote to change the dynamic. Do you get dizzy at all during the day?
Smells like a set up.....USSR & Saudi aranging to unnofficially leave all this Military equpment for pro Sunnis.
Obama is an expert on Hummers......giving them
No. The equipment supposedly pilfered from Iraq is the cover story. DON'T FALL FOR IT. ISIS is nothing but an iteration of "the opposition" that the State Department buffoons have been funding to "bring democracy" to Syria.
You know. Like they brought democracy to Egypt. And Libya.
An opposition which, having duly received their M16s from the polymath Harvard grads in Obama's employ, all of a sudden decided that Assad was too hard a nut to crack compared with Maliki.
Slam, bam, "Thank you ma'am," our Kenyan president gets bent over by the Muzzies yet again...
Yup. But they also serve a US purpose in Iraq. They are permitting Obama to send the troops back.
HA! They don't know it but the JOKE is on ISIS.
All them Hummers have been recalled for defective ignition locks.
What a bunch of dumb sand monkeys.
The neocons are using ISIS to bounce the US into Iraq 3.0 like they used 9/11 to start Iraq 2.0.
When the deadly toll is finally added up the B2/O team will be firmly on the world's Top Ten killers list, above Idi Amin, yet nowhere near #1 Mao and #2 Stalin, but not too far from Pol Pot or the earlier LBJ/Nixon killing spree. But this is what the American electrorate demands and votes for over and over again.
And imagine what the killing will be like not-too-many years from now when oil and food get really, really scarce. That president will be voted in as a true contender for the #1 spot.
I really like that term.
Fucking NSA hackers.
Misleading. Obama wanted to leave troops there to protect the oil interests. Malaki refused. Then the US armed ISIS in Syria (run by a guy they just let out of jail a few years back - go figure). ISIS got beat back by Assad and suddenly they are in Iraq taking over cities. Strange events sale even for the ad firm of WASH DC.
ISIS AND ABU BAKR AL-BAGHDADI: THE NEW AL QAEDA AND OSAMA BIN LADEN
thank god, they took the bait. Now we can nuke them for having weapons of mass destruction.
Iraq is not the only place we've done this.
