The LuLac Edition #2711, August 10th, 2014


President Obama has taken action this week concerning the situation in Iraq. We all know this country is in an awful state. Currently there are thousands of people trapped on the top of a mountain in fear for their lives simply because they are not of the same faith as the people who have the weaponry. I’ll maintain to my dying day that Joe Biden had it right when he said we should have divided the country into religious sectors. Plus the incursion of the ISIS rebels has made this an untenable situation. On the rebels, I found it amusing (as amusing as one can find this type of stuff) that the chest thumping thugs have now taken the flags and insignias off their trucks and tanks. Bombs do matter folks! Trucks and tanks that by the way were ours giving to Iraq to defend itself.
President Obama becomes the fourth U.S. President to put his fingerprints on Iraq. If you have a child, niece or nephew that is 23, their entire lifespan measures the length of time our country has spend our resources on this nation.
When will this nation ever learn that we can’t impose our concept of freedom and democracy on a country and culture that have no appreciation or understanding of what that means? It’s a good thing that we are trying to save those people on the mountaintops…..that’s what we do. But I’m not seeing any other nation stepping forward to help. And so…………………………….

45 years ago this weekend that iconic picture was taken in London at Abbey Road by the Fab Four. Their album was one of the gems as they were winding down their short but significant career. The album, their 11th, was later released in September of 1969 but the photo was taken on August 8th. That picture spanned a type of fan recreation of visitors to London doing the Abbey Road photo redux. Here’s one of the cuts from the album, “She Came in Through the Bathroom Window”, based on a true incident where a female fan got into Paul McCartney’s house by climbing through the bathroom window.

Ba Ba Ba Back to Iraq....
No boots on the ground. Weve all heard that one before, but the President is right. These people have got to straighten out their own mess and there isnt a chance in hell of that happening so whats next? And yes, Joe Biden had a good point, didnt he? Problem is they'd still be fighting each other. Look at Gaza. Some problems truly have no solution.
