Thursday, August 05, 2004 | Pakistan Needs a Coup, or If Syria Occupied the US
And not one of those pre-packaged CIA Coup Helper jobs, either, but a real one.
Few westerners understand what is happening in Pakistan. Probably the best way to explain it is like this:
Suppose that Syria decided that it needed install a puppet government in the United States, in order to have a clear path to Mexico's oil. So the Syrian intelligence agency does that, and then bit by bit proceeds to for all practical intents and purposes, occupy the United States. No law can be passed, no candidate can seek or hold office, without getting the stamp of approval from Damascus.
Any Americans who oppose this too vocally are seized and locked up by American law enforcement, which now, like all other elements of US government, is accountable to Syria.
Syrian authorities are especially concerned about having a clear path down through the Gulf of Mexico, and so they take a particular interest in the backwater swamps and bayous of Mississippi and Louisiana, which for the purposes of our analogy are populated by people who are not aware of either the Louisiana purchase or the existence of any big buildings with meninsuits in Washington. Somehow all that has passed them by, they don't have expressways, or McDonalds, or cell phone towers. They don't even have a Wal-Mart.
They just live their lives as they have always done, hunting raccoons or similar fauna, catching catfish with crude poles held over the edge of splintery little boats, playing zydeco music and baking crawfish pies and file gumbo. Don't bother them, they won't bother you. But if there's one thing that can get these good ole boys riled, that's the idea of outlanders coming down trying to mess around and cut through their swamp.
And a key element of the plans of Syria's business and political strategists involves going down there, messing around, and cutting through their swamp.
To that end, Syria tells the US army to go down there and do whatever they have to do to get Syria a secure corridor for its oil in Mexico, and the army does it, and even though Syria succeeds in preventing CNN and Fox News from getting any footage of little tow-headed Mississippi toddlers with their feet blown off to put on the news, which, like everything else, has to be cleared through Syria, word does get out on a few local radio stations and community papers that neither Syrian nor US special forces are able to quite eliminate, and before you know it, most everybody in the US knows that the US army is down in Mississippi and Louisiana killing Americans, whole families, blowing up their little bayou lean-tos and boats, smashing their zydecos, poisoning the crawfish.
And human nature being what it is, even the big city rich folks, who have always looked down their noses at the swamp folk and made fun of how they talk, with varying degrees of overtness, begin to feel uncomfortable in a way that just having to show their papers to Syrian officials whenever they went to the airport didn't make them feel.
Even the ones who have discovered that cooperating with the Syrians can be quite good for the old portfolio are surprised to find themselves more than rankled at the endless stream of reports of dozens, hundreds, of citizens of the restive Gulf Coast being rounded up and interrogated on suspicion of anti-Syrian activities.
Remember that in our analogy, Syria has a previously unseen military capacity much greater than that of the US, so simply throwing the Syrians out is not an option.
About the only ace the US has up its sleeve are some strategic nuclear resources that would definitely serve as a deterrent to Syria to get the hell out of the US, but they are in the hands of some corrupt Americans who are collaborating with the Syrians.
In these circumstances, the US would definitely need a coup, don't you think?
Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum.
Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage
had been done. They were brainwashed with the same type of garbage
propaganda that is spewed from Fatwa's weblog.
Middle Eastern countries are so much more barbaric today and preAmercia than America can ever hope to be...America has only been around 230 years...who did you blame for everything before that Ductape? I am calling a Fatwa on your bullshit!
IMO - terrorist plain and simple. He is an Al queda operative who
should be put in a cage on gitmo Skinner
My favorite..."In Defense of Holocaust Deniers"
I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
peopleforchange.netductape is either a commie, al queda, or a deep cover mole
Tells you something about this asshole doesn't it. He's really serious.
I believe that DF is nothing but a Republican plant...
Ductape is a commie, a terrorist, and he drinks blood too. He drinks
Capitalist blood. He eats unborn babies too
Give me your address and I'll send you $20 and a thank-you note for taking your hatred elsewhere.
A terrorist with a sense of humor!
He ain't nuthin' but shit
inadequate, halfway house bullshit
You are a dumbass. Fuck you and your condescension about us "benighted sheeple." hamletta
Untruthful, damaging bullshit
no better than the neocons and no different than Timothy McVeigh
dailykos.coma turd in the punchbowl...if DF were Joe Hill he probably would have killed himself rather than get put to death.
A compost pile of fecundity
dailykos.comdespicable and literally mentally ill
