Daily Dose of Delusion. (Updated)

| January 13, 2013

So once again the the people over at Our Journey to Smiles are doubling down on the delusions. The main one is that somehow that all the woes in Afghanistan are because out outside forces and interference. Their latest video states as much.

Why do we spend money like this? Why don’t we use an alternative way? The international community says that drones are used to kill the Taliban. This is not true. We should see the truth. Today, it’s hard to find the truth and no one listens to the people.They kill human beings. Drones bring nothing but bombs. They burn the lives of the people. People can’t move around freely. In the nights, people are afraid. Drones don’t improve people’s lives, they limit the people’s lives. The people are not happy with drones. When they hear the sound of drones, they feel sad.
Drones don’t protect the people of Afghanistan. Instead, drones kill the people of Afghanistan. You hear in the news and reports that every day, families, children and women are killed. Do you call this safety?

So you see because of international intervention it led to the deaths of twelve people at a local party and a local teacher from a Girls school.

But on a serious note I thought that the majority of the drone strikes were in Pakistan and not in Afghanistan. And since my frienemy is no longer working with Rethink Afghanistan so I am not sure if they are still working with Journey to Smiles.

UPDATE: This comment from the video is a good example of what happens when history is forgotten.

Sporkmater you’re missing the point here: drones are killing innocent people, whose relatives will not think of the US better for it. No wonder the Taliban has regained so much support.

On a seperate note, I’m willing to bet that the Taliban would not allow so called agricultural ‘aid’ that is going to poison the whole ecosystem and economy with Roundup pesticides and GMO-slavery. So? yea, maybe they will be better off with the Taliban in charge. Who is to say?

    I suppose that Taliban throwing acid in school girls faces and blowing up weddings with suicide vests is our fault too

  2. ComancheDoc says:

    Everything the dirty Talib do is our fault, havent you been watching the news?

  3. Bam Bam says:

    “When they hear the sound of drones, they feel sad.” That’s top notch reporting! Compelling and rich.

  4. Green Thumb says:

    I deal with this mindset everyday during the semester.

    Thank God its Winter Break.


    Back to the moonshine.

    Since there are never any “Sports” issues covered here; I will use theis “delusion” as a introductionary platform.

    Tebow won a playoff game for the Broncos.

    Manning did not.

    Manning is the better QB. A given, the HOF he will make.

    I would have paid good money to be in Elway’s post game interview.

    Everytime Tebow scored last year, Elway looked like he wanted to puke. (And, yes, the camera was on him the whole game(s)).

    “People can’t move around freely. In the nights, people are afraid”. Isn’t that how you’re supposed to treat your enemies? They say shit like this like it’s a bad thing to deny your enemy the cloak of darkness.

  7. Ex-PH2 says:

    I can’t move around freely at night. I keep tripping over cats and cat toys. But it does not make me sad.

  8. Redacted1775 says:

    Reads like it was written by a friggin’ 4th grader.

  9. Green Thumb says:


    Miss Havisham you seem to be.

    Nice pic, by the way.

    Too bad I did not join the Navy.

  10. do the fucksticks have any idea what most drones are used for? surveillance work. If they drop a bomb once in awhile, it’s so they don’t have to send a human in to fly the mission….would they give a rat’s ass if live pilots were shot down?
    I think some folks are as afraid of drones as they are of guns. …but have never seen either.

  11. USMCE8Ret says:

    @8 – I think you’re giving them too much credit.

  12. Mike says:

    So do I go smoke pot and do yoga before or after reading this article?

  13. Ex-PH2 says:

    @9 – Miss Havisham?

  14. Ex-PH2 says:

    Seriously, GT, Miss Havisham? Moi?

  15. Green Thumb says:

    I am suprised there are no exclamation marks.

    Not being rude; I am a southern gentleman.

    Just an observation.

  16. Ex-PH2 says:

    But her life was so sad, and mine is not.

  17. Steelbreeze says:

    Who was this written for?

    “The people are not happy with drones. When they hear the sound of drones, they feel sad.”

    My tablet doesn’t like that site so I haven’t visited it, but this reads like it was written by and for (as previously suggested) a fourth grader.

  18. Green Thumb says:

    You seem to be an odd, spry girl…

    I have to be half your age.

    Enough said.

    But your sense of humor is very becoming…

    Also, nice pic. I stand by my “Navy” comments if I was younger.

    The Infantry sucked. Loved every moment of it, but thats a fact.


  19. Ex-PH2 says:

    Well, OK, GT, thank you.

    As Bette Davis is rumored to have said, “Old age ain’t a good time for sissies.”

  20. Green Thumb says:

    Fair enough.

    Good luck.

    Winter Break.

    Back to the “shine.
