Okay, maybe I’m just becoming one of those angry old coots you remember as a kid.
The old woman you knew down the street, that your Mom MADE you visit because this lady had view visitors, most probably because any conversation she had only centred around complaining about the Present while fawning over the Past, on events long since gone and on people long since passed.
Yeah, MsBurb may becoming that old crazy, but Hell if lately she hasn’t wondered what life would be like IF certain people were brought back to life, to handle what our contemporary leaders seem incapable of handling today.
When the US said they wanted the “tired and hungry, huddled masses” and when Canada proclaimed itself an “Humanitarian” nation, neither country, I imagine, ever envisioned 3rd world invaders who had no regard for our immigration laws or our cultural morays. That to cross our borders any way you can or to attempt to blow people up from a SUV car bomb in the middle of Times Square would be considered by natural-born North Americans socially acceptable at any time…sigh…
Hence, with the latest terrorist attack in New York and with all the political ruckus over illegal alien issue in Arizona, MsBurb’s mind wandered back to who she’d REALLY like to be leading our North American military and government these days…
Yep, this is HER Dream Team…and she wants’em all back!
Harry S. Truman back as the US President!
“A president either is constantly on top of events or, if he hesitates, events will soon be on top of him. I never felt that I could let up for a moment.”
“Carry the battle to them. Don't let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive and don't ever apologize for anything.”
“Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skilful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.”
Anymore bullshit from Pakistan or Afghanistan and old Harry woulda dropped another
“Fat Boy” on them as fast as you could say “Shut the Hell up!”
Oh, and with Harry on our side, we wouldn’t be losing a wink of sleep wondering if that freakish dictator,
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, had the wherewithal to create an atomic weapon, because old Harry woulda dropped one on him first!
George S. Patton back too!
"Success is how high you bounce when you hit the bottom."
"I don't want to get any messages saying, "I am holding my position." We are not holding a Goddamned thing. Let the Germans do that. We are advancing constantly and we are not interested in holding onto anything, except the enemy's balls. We are going to twist his balls and kick the living shit out of him all of the time. Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to go over, under, or through the enemy. We are going to go through him like crap through a goose; like shit through a tin horn!"
"There is only one tactical principle which is not subject to change; it is, 'To use the means at hand to inflict the maximum amount of wounds, death, and destruction on the enemy in the minimum amount of time."
Yeah, I know, his mouth and his ego were as big as all outdoors but no one could amass a tank assault like this hardened General could, so the border hassles we have with the Mexicans in the States and with the untold illegal aliens landing in Canada from the Middle East, would be an issue no more, ‘cause old George woulda strapped on his side arm once again and lined our borders with Sherman tanks instead of wimpy fences. Try crossin’ our borders now, you 3rd world freaks!
And we all know about his infamous leather glove slapping of that shell-shocked soldier in WWII. Maybe a little less talk from Obama and Hillary and a few more leather gloved slaps to the leaders in Mexico and the Middle East and we’d all be further ahead!
Douglas MacArthur back too!
“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”
“The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle: the roar of the crowd on the one side, and the voice of your conscience on the other.”
“You are remembered for the rules you break.”
Nobody could orchestrate an invasion like old Doug, corncob-pipe and all…
If we had him back as General, Iraq would never have had a chance to amass insurgents in the first place and that caveman bin Laden would have been bombed out of his hole years ago. When old Doug knew who his enemy was, he always kept his promise “to return” and get the rug-rat. Nothing was too outlandish or too offensive for old Doug in that quest, as he always viewed Life as an “Us” versus “Them” scenario. His confidence to get “His Man” was so over-inflated, I could see this old warrior postin’ signs up all over Pakistan and Afghanistan that would read,
Doug wouldn’t give a damn, as long as the message enraged his enemy enough to have him crawl out from inside his hole and be captured.
Dwight D. Eisenhower back too!
“History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid.”
“It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.”
“Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.”
The American Joint Chiefs of Staff need an organisational fire lit under their asses these days if they intend on winning the almost impossible feat of a two-front war with Iraq and Afghanistan. And who better to accomplish this feat than the man who envisioned, produced, and directed D-Day and Midway, defeating both the Nazis and the Japs in less time than it takes to build walls to keep the Mexicans out or to wax diplomatic to keep the Middle East extremists from blowing us up!
Yep, this old coot, MsBurb, wants those men back to teach today’s wishy-washy leaders what is not acceptable to North Americans on a national as well as global scale.
Hitler and Hirohito never listened to diplomacy. What makes you think the leaders of our marauding countries will listen any better?
Besides, all this “talk” is being drowned out by the stampede of terrorists and illegal aliens crossing our borders as we live and breathe…
An atomic bomb is initially loud and destructive but damn if it doesn’t bring decades of peace and security afterward, right Truman, George, Doug and Ike?!
