What better way to start your day than with a video of our Secretary of State criticizing Prime Minister Netanyahu for “profoundly forward leaning” with respect to Bush’s war against Iraq? You know, the war that Jean Carré was for before he was against?
“Actually, for the record, George W. Bush won that war. Barack Obama lost it to ISIS.” – Gateway Pundit
Meanwhile, Susan Rice was on PBS telling Charlie Rose how “destructive” BiBi’s upcoming address to Congress will be to the US-Israel relationship:
“There has now been injected a degree of partisanship, which is not only unfortunate, I think it’s destructive of the fabric of the relationship.”
You know what else is destructive to the fabric of a relationship? Not supporting an ally against an enemy who has repeatedly threatened its annihilation. You know, one of those fundamentally “existential” threats that Big Guy doesn’t believe exist in the Age of Obama (aside from Global Warming).

Or even more destructive to the relationship: in addition to “not supporting” your ally you are actively working to arm their arch-enemy with a nuclear bomb.
And here’s another thing that, normally, would be destructive to a relationship in the middle of negotiating a nuclear deal:
Iran blows up U.S. battleships in non-partisan effigy during naval war exercises earlier this week.
Okay, it was just a model of our battleship Nimitz, butt still: I’m concerned that the people we are negotiating with appear to be only slightly less delusional than our own chief negotiators.
SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY: And frankly – and last thing, this is counterintuitive but it’s true: Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally— less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century. And so even the concept of state war has changed in many people’s minds, and we’re seeing now more asymmetrical kinds of struggles.
I think we can all agree on the Ass-ymmetrical part.
So don’t worry; those non-Islamist young Jihadi-jobseekers are just practicing their non-terrorist “asymmetrical kind of struggles” around the globe. And you are now safer than you’ve ever been – statistically speaking, which is the only way delusional people like Secretary of State Jean Carré speak.
And speaking of lies and statistics reminds me - can we now get on with our War on Global Warming? Everybody knows that’s the only real existential threat we face.
