But I remember the Keystone Kops because they used to be on TV in the 1950s when I was a kid. Boy did I laugh!
And now, one hundred years later, the Keystone-Kop-wannabe antics of America's crazy, bewildered and confused foreign policy is making me laugh too -- at least when it isn't making me cry.
My first joke about America's Middle East foreign policy will surely have you in stitches! "America's foreign-policy Keystone Kops' opening gig in the Middle East was first on the marquee in Jerusalem back in the 1940s -- when those crazy, zany and confused foreign-policy Kops mistook the Palestinian holy land for a perfect site for the latest Neo-Con Condominium Development Association project."
Get it? Holy Land? Condo development? That's hilarious! Although even most Israelis these days are not laughing at this pratfall any more either -- especially after some Israeli neo-con storm troopers just made a Palestinian child drink gasoline and then set him on fire while he was still alive. http://www.haaretz.com/opinion/.premium-1.599318. Looks like this whole Israeli neo-con Occupation skit has fallen flat.
But wait! I still gots tons of other great jokes about America's crazy, confused and zany foreign policy in the Middle East.
"Not very funny, Jane." Yeah, yeah -- but wait for the punchline.
Do I hear any belly-laughs out there? Not yet? Damn, you're a hard audience to please.
To paraphrase Father Dave Smith, "I thought the Americans were trying to wage a war ON terror, not a war to CREATE it." Funny how that all got twisted around, right? http://prayersforsyria.com/why-its-ok-to-arm-moderate-jihadists-in-syria/
"Then after tearfully telling Al Qaeda, 'Come home, all is forgiven,' America's DC Kops once again started training and weaponizing AQ in Jordan, and then sent a bunch of Al Qaeda terror-creating operatives off to Syria to do what they do best -- and once there, they apparently broke into two groups." Al Nustra and ISIS.
"But then Al Nustra terrorists started demanding to get paid the same wages that ISIS terrorists are getting from the Americans, who are funneling ISIS's paychecks to them through the Saudis. So the ISIS terrorists chop off the Al Nustra terrorists' heads -- and then run off to Iraq where ISIS then gathers its minions on the Saudi border." More Keystone-Kop antics here -- only these Kops are brandishing AK-47s and machetes, and the costume department has gone bananas with the new black-bandana look. But they still run around like chickens with their heads cut off.
"So then the Saudis have to send 30,000 of its own Keystone Kops to their border to keep the ISIS terrorists out of Arabia -- and that's ISIS we're talking about, the group of terrorists that the Saudis had originally funded themselves in the first place, by using money laundered from America."
Meanwhile back in Ukraine, America's foreign policy has now weaponized and trained another bunch of pseudo-Ukrainian neo-Nazi terrorist Keystone Kop wannabes who are happily blowing up everything in sight too -- but mostly blowing up Ukrainians. I guess that America must have thought that the siege of Stalingrad by the Nazis was so funny that they wanted to do it again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlMw8CjyV80
