* WARNING: MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF SAILOR WORDS AHEAD. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED *
Can cable news get any duller? It's about 95% Israel-Lebanon and has been for the past 3 weeks and 5% Mel Gibson and other worthless shit.
You know what happened in Israel and Lebanon today? There were some small missiles fired and then there was some ground action. Oooohhh Oooohhh, let me watch that for the 10,000th time! Yeah that's what I want to see!
Absolutely nothing has changed. Same shit different day..."oh wait there's a tank stuck in a mine field and two other ones trying to push it out! Look his treads turned a little!" I gotta watch that. Ummm no!
The same old commentators are brought out and they say the same damn thing again.
The cable news stations, FOX and CNN being the worst, think that we really care about every little grain of sand that falls. It's like watching someone who just had their first baby and filmed 12 hours straight of every little move the baby made. It's informative and interesting for about 3 minutes and then it's boring, fucking boring! Shut the fuck up already!
3 weeks of fucking boring!
Look, it's important, it is changing peoples lives over there, it is the front lines of the war against terrorists, we get it already. But I don't think they even covered 9/11 for three weeks straight.
How about we focus on our country and some shit going on here for a change huh? There's tons of things that are affecting our people here on a daily basis and it's not being covered because "Ohhh Ohhh, there's some outgoing Israeli artillery, can you hear it? It's outgoing...Oh wait there's a missile strike in a field over there that started a small brush fire. It was a few miles away from any living thing, but hold on while our cameraman covers the lens so he can move the camera without you being able to detect exactly where we are! I know I've told you 5,000 times already, but it's an Israeli requirement that we cover the lens...".
And what's with all this talk about some kind of "international force" to monitor the border between the two? Hasn't this been tried over and over and the terrorists there managed to "sneak in" 10,0000 missiles or something? Why the fuck is anyone believing that will work? Hey I have an idea, let's have everyone cease fire and talk about it and make promises not to do it again? I mean that's worked so well in the past.
And another thing, everyone admits that Syria and Iran are behind this shit, so why are they getting a free pass from all these countries in the world? Why aren't they getting the dick in the ass?
As for Lebanon and their "poor people" who are losing everything because they let some terrorist group grow and flourish in their country and their government didn't do a fucking thing to stop it, you people need to solve your problem or stop bitching. Demand that your government take action and stop being complicit in endorsing this group of terrorists. In front of the camera they cry that they're poor, but I'm betting behind closed doors they're celebrating the attacks on Israel and the terrorists who are doing it. Well you know what? I don't feel any fucking sympathy for you. I also don't think anyone should give you a fucking thing! How about them apples?
Why the rest of the world should pay for your terrorist sympathizing ass is beyond me. My taxpayer money sent to the UN should go to provide food for you and your kids because you let this situation occur right before you and did nothing? Pfft. That's total bullshit.
As for Israel... hey you want a fucking country you fight for your right. If you once again let all these asshats convince you to sign some cease-fire and retreat back into your country allowing them to win, then don't fucking come crying when they start sending missiles over into your country in a year or so when they've gotten their shit together again. OK? How about that for a deal? Let's shake on it! You want to be a little fucking pussy and cave in when you know it's not going to work then you deserve what you get.
I don't believe in this little pitty pat shit. Bomb the fuck out of them! Damn the assholes who will be outraged at your slaughtering of some innocents. Those who are outraged are the ones who want you obliterated off the face of the Earth anyway, so who gives a shit what they say? I mean really, what the hell is wrong with you?
So how about we stop reporting on this worthless conflict already cable news? It's only going to repeat itself again and again as it has in the past. Some wimpy fuckin' Israelis will decide to sign some stupid agreement and it'll all repeat itself as it has in the past. Don't act so shocked that this is occurring.
Put on some stuff that matters already.
To paraphrase Bill Sherman- war is the remedy our enemy has chosen, I say give them all they want.
You cannot live in southern Lebanon, vote for Hezbollah, take their aid, and rent them space in your basement to hide rockets and small arms, and then complain when an Israeli F-16 destroys your freakin’ house. This is the type of representation you wanted, now live with the consequences.
As for the rest of Lebanon, you let a cancer grow in your country, you could have removed yourself, and while it may have been painful and left a big scar to remove it, you tried to ignore it and let it grow. Now that cancer is killing you, and the treatment is has to be very aggressive to stop it. Lebanon asking for a cease-fire now would be like walking out of the hospital because the medicine is making your hair fall out.
I agree with you Digger, I can’t watch anymore coverage from the border. Tell me when Israel bombs Damascus or Tehran, other than that, I don’t need Wolf, Shepard and Cooper telling me that nothing has changed.
Sometimes sailor talk says it best.
