The Scabrous Search

A Silflay Hraka Exclusive, for some odd reason.

By Joe McCain

So now the political hounds are after the 'Great Mass Weapons Scam', eh? Going to hold hearings. Going to find out if the poor old American people have been tricked, fooled, misled.

What is the matter with them?

Here's what SHOULD matter to them: A man has been removed from power who murdered millions and made many more millions terrified.

A man has been removed that had, and used, weapons of mass murder on many occasions, on the Kurds, on the Iranians, on the Shiites -- in short, on the weak.

What happened to those weapons is not clear. We know he had them. We know, because we saw the piles of bodies over the years. And we should be very worried about what happened to them, where they are now, not whether we have been tricked by the President of the United States.

A man has been removed whose friends and kin raped women, tortured athletes, grabbed property and possessions at whim, destroyed whatever and whomever they wished.

Have these political defects not seen the photos of the mass graves, seen the trophy photos of torture, not heard the stories from the victims, not heard even our own troops and rescued Prisoners-of-War?!

At least this one man and his pals will never murder and terrify and torture and maim and waste and destroy again.

And perhaps the other strange and dangerous thugs of the word, especially this terribly dangerous Kim Jung-Il will hesitate before starting up their killing machines.

This is a terribly malevolent world, where battalions of misled fanatics are simply and violently anti-Western, Anti-Christian, Anti-Jewish. And they will kill, just as the Kamikaze-driven troops of the Japanese Empire and the Nazi-infected Wehrmacht killed -- until enough of them died, and the killing finally stopped.

It is a horrible, cancerous world in which only radical surgery applies.

As long as we stay subtle and rational and philosophical, millions more will die. Jews, Americans, Westerners, reasonable Arabs, peaceful Muslims. They will die just as others kept dying while Neville Chamberlain temporized, and Americans cried "America, First!". If the Japanese hadn't made the incredible decision to raid Pear Harbor, when would we have joined that war? And does anybody remember, it was German who declared war on the United States? Else, when we have gone to Europe to help beat down these monsters of holocaust and pillage?

Have we gone that insane, again? Despite so many terrible, bloody lessons from history? Recent history? Ancient History? ANY history!!!

This is not new. The Crusades against the Moors? The American White Man against his former slaves? Virtually any country against the Jew for 1500 years?

It is a bad time. But for the sake of history, there is one land strong enough to deal with it. And deal with we must!

No amount of petulance against George Bush, and complaints about misinformation, and elite sniffing distaste is going to change the fact that there is a band of unthinking radicals that murder only to murder -- and the more horrific the murder is, the more devastating it is, the more innocent the victims are, the better. It brings them closer to Allah. Well, just as we had to help millions of Japanese Imperial Troops get to their gods faster, so must we enhance the celestial trip of these assassins of humanity.

That's what matters.....REALITY matters!

Please, no matter what you think of George Bush -- and we McCain Republicans have much vinegar to remember from South Carolina -- don't go down this trashy, sleazy road!!

If you do, you will wreck a very problematic victory with which we must be patient -- we were in Germany and Japan four and five years, remember -- but more, you will absolutely cripple any chance of dealing with so many other mastes of death and murder and mayhem.

No, you will absolutely take away the fear our terribly brave men and women have put into them, and perhaps unleash them!

Editor's Note: Joe McCain is the brother of Arizona Senator John McCain, and resides in Washington. I got the essay above from an e-mail he sent to the parents of his godson yesterday, whom the Sainted Wife and I have been friends with for years. An earlier essay of his can be seen here. Why we happen to be the only place on the web these are found is a complete mystery to me.
