This is almost boring to talk about at this point.
I’m more interested in talking about what kinda badass shit we’re going to be doing in the wasteland.
But yeah, anyway, the Pentagon
During a briefing in Washington, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White and Joint Staff Director Lieutenant General Kenneth F. McKenzie said that the operation, which launched more than 100 missiles on civilian and military facilities, accomplished all of its objections and “dealt a severe blow” to the Syrian authorities, who they blame for an alleged attack in Douma.
“Who they blame for an alleged attack” is just such an insane statement to begin with.
Mattis himself ADMITS he doesn’t know whether or not the attack actually even happened – he literally said that he thinks it probably did based on stuff he saw on social media.
These are the same assholes saying everything they disagree with on social media is a Russian conspiracy. Mattis also literally said that after the strike – that anything against it on social media was Russian disinfo.
They’re now saying they have secret evidence (which the media says is urine samples that were somehow smuggled out of this area no one can get to), but like, hours before the strike Mattis was still out there telling reporters he didn’t know if it happened but saw some tweets indicating maybe it did.
What kind of goddamn circus show is this?
Anyway – here are a bunch of the dumb non-answers they gave to relatively softball questions.
Reporters addressed the US’ reluctance to share their proof of chemical weapons use by the Syrian authorities, which the US said justified the missile strikes.
“Adlai Stephenson famously went to the UN [in 1962] with the evidence of the Russian buildup in Cuba. Why won’t you do something similar? Especially, if there are doubts,” one reporter asked.
“But there’s no doubt for us,” White said, adding that the evidence remains concealed because “a lot of this has to do with intelligence. And I’m very happy to show evidence if I can. But we were very confident about the decision we’ve made.”
Another journalist wondered why the strikes on Syria took place before the OPCW experts were able to finish their investigation into the claimed gas attack.
“Let’s remember that OPCW and others have been blocked from entering Ghouta and Douma. That’s because of the Assad regime,” the Pentagon said, avoiding a direct answer to the question.
Meanwhile, the OPCW inspectors landed in Damascus on Saturday, and the Syrian authorities said they will be granted access to all the required areas and sites.
Striking before assessing the situation
Another question revealed that the US bombardment was actually carried out before the Pentagon was able to fully process all the evidence it says it had regarding the gas attack.
“We’re still assessing, but as the Secretary [of Defense Jim Mattis] said last night, he’s confident of the evidence that we already had and which is why he recommended the strikes last night. And we’re still assessing and getting details and we can provide more details once we have them,” the spokeswoman said. When asked to elaborate on the proof, she only replied that they had “various intel.”
Striking “chemical weapons” site without fear of leaks
McKenzie was asked if a missile attack on a chemical facility posed a risk of dispersing a chemical agent cloud, which could have threatened numerous civilians. The general acknowledged that “there were probably some chemical or nerve agents” in at least one of the targets of the Saturday’s strike. However, he said that: “we believe that by the way that we attacked it, the attack profile that we used, the way our weaponeers looked at it, we were able to minimize that. And I’ll just leave it at that. You’ll be able to judge over the next few hours the results of that.”
Bombs first, diplomacy later
One of the journalists pointed out that the fact that the US and its allies “lobbed a couple dozen Tomahawk cruise missiles into the country” contradicted Washington’s claims that it wants to avoid a military conflict in Syria.
“Our mission stays the same – it’s to defeat ISIS. Assad’s actions were beyond the pale,” White replied. She added that the US supports the UN-led peace process in Syria, as it wants “a diplomatic, political resolution to the Syrian conflict, but civilized nations can’t let what’s happened in Syria stand.”
These people literally sent a gibbering nigger female out there because they know that people feel bad for easily confused niggers and don’t want to press them too hard on anything.
I say: bring on the dancing horses.
Bring on the new messiah.
Who is me.
The real life Negan in the new reality that is THE WASTELAND.
Can you even begin to imagine how awesome this is going to be?
When I am literally Negan and we’re going around just murdering motherfuckers and getting all their supplies and sluts?
With total impunity?
When faggots who we’re fucking over weakly whimper “y-y-you can’t do this…!”
We’re gonna be like “I AM THE LAW!”
I’m about to start saying “call the White House and tell them to LET THE NUKES FLY, BABY!”
Or just call the White House and play that Echo and the Bunnymen song into the phone.
Or really any Echo and the Bunnymen song, honestly.
Just be like “this is for my boy John Bolton – tell him to make this shit quick, I’m trying to get this show on the road!”
They’ll get the message real quick.
