Quick, a diversion!

As you noticed by my post yesterday, shit is not going too well over in the cradle. So what better time to rekindle the fires of hatred and violence with some news that Bin Laden is hiding in Northern Pakistan. Yep, that's right, we found him! Although, not really. Apparently, we know the region, but just can't seem to find him - after all, a 6 foot Arab with an unmistakable face hooked up to a dialysis machine must be pretty shifty. I bet if you gave a 5 year old a weeks supply of chocolate, he could find him in about a day and a half, including naps and bath times.
Are you fucking kidding me?! This is the most transparent attempt to gather support for more violence and bolster patriotic support against that evil man behind 9/11 (cough-Bush-cough, cough).
According to a NATO official, Bin Laden is hiding out in the Tora Bora region, the same fucking place he "escaped capture" in 2001. That was 9 years ago! You mean to tell me the fucker hasn't even migrated since then and you still can't find him?! Holy shit, these aren't even clever lies!
Apparently, the NATO official wouldn't say how he came to know of Bin Laden or his associates' whereabouts, but claimed he has access to some of the most sensitive information in the NATO alliance. Well, that's just dandy. So, in other words, you don't know where you got the information but you know it's right because it comes from an agency whose track record is about as water tight as a mermaid's undies, and just as fantastical? Got it.
The NATO official also announced that, now, the main strategy is to INCREASE the number of offensive air strikes and ground attacks in the hopes of pressuring the Taliban and other insurgents to lay down their arms and point to the cave where elusive Bin Laden is hiding and mocking us.
And there it is ladies and gentlemen, there it is. Harsh criticism of their murderous tactics prompts story time, and a pathetic diversion to try and justify the killings of thousands.
And you know what? We're gonna take it. We're gonna eat it up. Politicians and military personnel are right now meeting and discussing the exact phrasing, the exact framing of this situation to get the American people to pull out their flags, praise Jesus and fire their guns into the air.
This insult to our intelligence will go unnoticed, like the raping of our rights, the blood shed in our name will continue, or as the official notes, increase. Apparently, the current rate at which we are digging our ditch is not fast or violent enough. So, everyone, let's grab a shovel and we'll meet in the 7th circle...or the Middle East, whatever you wanna call it.
