… on the cheap while giving our Navy and Coast Guard a little target practice. Not to mention saving the expense of towing some old scow out to sea for the same purpose and  (Hey, Bonus!) feeding a few sharks.

Perhaps Admiral Smitty would be interested in re-upping for a couple of days to command the mission. We could call it “Operation Fish in a Barrel” or something. Of course you are encouraged to offer your own names for the op in the comments.

Normally, I would counter with something like: “Oh yea? Let me know how that works out for ya.” But in light of the present commander-in-chief, I’m afraid his response will be quite underwhelming.

If only we had a president who projected strength toward our enemies instead of bowing to them and establishing a weak to non-existent foreign policy which invites these kinds of military threats.


If only…

    If only we had a leader with a spine…. If only we had a leader with a brain…
    Here’s a name for the mission – “Operation Battleship?”

    A few thoughts …

    As sons and daughters of revolutionaries who went to war against their own government in the name of liberty, calls for political “leadership” should be the creepiest thing we could possibly hear.

    It would be easy to argue that Obama is a bigger warmonger than GWB, so I’m not really sure how a president could “project more strength.”

    Is it possible that “projecting strength” provides others reason to do the same? I remember being a broker, managing money for clients with far more than I’ll ever have, and more experience too. Believe me, a guy who puts me on hold to talk to one of his art brokers (so he can buy a painting he’s never seen that is worth more than most people’s house), projects strength. Big time.

    Do you think he would have traded with me for years if I backed off and cowered? Of course not.
