Response to Grima Wormtongue, Mouth Of Sauron

Wherein I demonstrate for y’all the difficulty I’ve mentioned in trying to excerpt Wilder without just lifting the whole danged post.

Lincoln was wrong about a lot of things. He was right about a lot of things, too. He is correct about this:

“As a nation of free men, we will live forever or die by suicide.”

Joe Biden could have the armies of the united States get him a drink by force from any river in this land. But Joe Biden and all the armies of the united States couldn’t hold the length of the Missouri or the Mississippi for a single day by force.

The armies of the united States number some 1.3 million men oh, wait people oh, wait, xim/xers. Add in the Reserves? Let’s round WAY UP and call it three million. Total.

Actually, I seem to recollect seeing someplace recently that the 1.3 million number was inclusive of 800,000 reservists already, but I could be wrong (and am; see below). Doesn’t really matter either way, John’s larger point stands.

There are three million males in Missouri. I pick Missouri only because they recently decided they’re going to tell the Feds to attempt to compact a very large object into a very small space when it comes to firearm laws.

Go Missouri.

Not all of the three million males in Missouri would be on the side of freedom, since there are always some disgusting gelatinous slugs of humanity that will side with Evil over Truth. But there are enough. And don’t tell me that neighboring states wouldn’t flow in.

No, Mr. Biden. The only one who needs F-15s and nuclear weapons for control is you, you disgusting pile of fake hair, fake teeth, Alzheimer’s degraded brain, who gets his only Father’s Day card encrusted in cocaine dust and whore DNA.

The united States governs only, let me make this clear, only by consent of the governed. As citizens, we’re generally pretty good. But we are horrible, horrible at taking instruction from tyrants. It’s in our DNA.

No, literally. This is not an exaggeration. My family line came across an ocean to tame a continent. That was their resume. That was their job description as they rocked back and forth on little wooden boats in the midst of Atlantic storms. We didn’t come here because we were weak. We came here to fight and die and bleed and make this land our own.

We came here because we were strong.

We came here because we yearned for freedom.

Mr. Biden, your butt-sniffing and shoe-licking parents and your degenerate sons and personal weaknesses are abhorrent to every fiber of my body. Mr. Biden, you are disgusting. Mr. Biden, your forefathers were horrible. Mr. Biden, you and your weaknesses represent everything wrong with this country, and everything that has led to where we are today.

How dare you threaten me?

A. Fucking. MEN.

You guys will see what I mean about that hard-excerpt business when you click over and check out the rest. The above passage, delightful as it is, is no more than just Wilder loosening up the ol’ typing fingers before getting down to business for reals—this most righteous blast only gets MUCH more righteously blasty from there, to finish up by nuking Senile Grampy Gropey’s vacant skull from orbit…just to be sure.

SIDE NOTE: I checked up, and John’s numbers are correct.

The U.S. Armed Forces is the world’s third largest military by active personnel, after the Chinese’s People’s Liberation Army and the Indian Armed Forces, consisting of 1,359,685 servicemembers in the regular armed forces with an additional 799,845 servicemembers in the reserves as of 28 February 2019.

So there you have it. As I said, it’s all hairsplitting anyway, and doesn’t undercut John’s overall point in any way.

Iraq has a male fighting age population of 17 million. General Zinni got canned for truthfully saying that it would take 1 million troops to successfully hold that country. And Iraq is flat, mostly sand, with little in the way of cover, except for buildings and such. See for comparison – https://www.mylifeelsewhere.com/country-size-comparison/united-states/iraq And then, there’s logistics – think about it.

Barry

We were in Iraq for what, 8 Years, and never had more than roughly 150K troops in country. I guess it all depends on how you define success.

Zinni and Mattis, quite a combo if you need to fight a war against global warming.

He has a higher opinion of Xi Den than I do.
I loath Zhou for.what he is doing to the country, and because he claims a mandate when everyone knows he used “the best voter fraud team in history” to do it.

To the larger point,whether they can use the us military against the American people, even if he has the support of his 49 million voters.
I doubt that in the long run there would be the stomach for it in large cohorts of the military, and the supply chains needed for the equipment wouldn’t be robust enough.
And if he brought in the UN, well let’s just say that their pretty blue helmets wouldn’t stay so pretty for long.

Ironbear

The UN doesn’t have enough pretty blue helmets to occupy Virginia, much less all of CONUS. Nor do they have the force protection ability to get them here if they did.

John Wilder

Thanks for the kind words – this one really wrote itself. I love your post title!

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved." - Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil." - Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork." - David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." - Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine." - Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril
