As if FOX’s Brian Kilmeade’s daily rant, and General Jack Keane’s periodic rants, in support of endless U.S. interventionist wars are not enough, yesterday FOX’s Dana Perino chimed in with an interview of a U.S. military veteran – I did not catch his name — about the 16 January 2016 attack that killed and wounded multiple U.S. military personnel and contractors in Syria. This attack reportedly has been claimed by the Islamic State’s (IS) media arm.
Perino was at her George W. Bush-butt-licking best, repeating his endless and mindless mantra that we must remain at war because we cannot let these U.S. personnel “die in vain”. The military veteran, off course, agreed with Perino, and then slipped into the same simpering, Bush/Perino-esque sentimentality, saying we cannot let these men “die in vain” and then wheeled out the Bush regime’s sadly durable lie that the war against the Islamists is a “long generational and ideological war” that cannot be won quickly. This maudlin hero of the battlefield finished by again repeating “they must not have died in vain”, meaning – based on his and Perino’s half-ass remarks – that the forever war against the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and other Islamists must continue so “we can kill them over there and not here at home.”
