Madam Jane predicts: Death in the year 2028

     "You can't eat guns," Madam Jane is always fond of saying.  She is a friend of mine who is a psychic and always comes up with some really gloomy predictions.

     "In the year 2028, after all the supermarkets have closed," she told me today over tea leaves, "there will be nothing left to do but go hunting,"  But what will there be left to hunt?  The deer and buffalo are pretty much gone already -- so then what will we do?  Shoot cats and dogs?  "Humans," replied Madam Jane.  Yikes!

     I went to a party the other day and we ate hamburgers, tacos, cake and guacamole.  "Those days of food abundance will be gone by 2028, trust me," said Madam Jane.  And, sadly, I do.  She predicted that the invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yugoslavia, Syria, Ukraine, Somalia and Yemen would all be failures.  Hell, she even predicted that the invasion of Korea, Palestine and Vietnam would be disasters too.  And they all were (unless of course you were a weapons manufacturer).  "You just can't eat guns."

     Then someone at the party started chatting on and on about how America needed to support the moderate rebels in Syria.  So I gave him my usual ISIS-trashing speech yet again.  "There are no moderate rebels in Syria now and there never have been any moderate rebels in Syria since Day One.  They are all ISIS, paid for by the Saudis, coddled by the Israelis, encouraged by NATO, armed by the Americans and trained by the Turks."  And like all the rest of America, the guy at the party didn't believe me either.  Sucks to be me.  It must be even harder to be Madam Jane.

     "So by the year 2028, most Americans will be armed and dangerous too, just like ISIS is now," continued Madam Jane.  "American in 2028 will be like Libya today, a failed state.  And in the end, all of us who are left will be munching on people-jerky for breakfast.  If we last that long that is."

     Madam Jane, please cheer up!  Smile more.  Smiles release more endorphins into our brains.  That's why we love to spend time with happy people and babies.  They make us smile automatically.  But even when you are alone by yourself, you can still smile.  But spending time with happy people really does make you smile more.

     "Or you can shoot them or eat them," replied Madam Jane.

PS:  Madam Jane might be wrong about the year 2028 after all.  From what I just read on the Moon of Alabama blog, we may all be dead much sooner than 2028.  Hell, we could even be dead tomorrow if those idiots who run America's War Street don't wise up.

    According to MofA, who is never wrong (how does he do that!), "Turkey [on February 14, 2016] used 155mm artillery to fire from Turkey against Syrian Democratic Forces' positions on Minnagh airbase and around Azaz [Syria].  There will be Turkish special forces observers in Syria to direct the fire.  The NATO member Turkey is shelling the YPG, which is backed by Russia and the U.S., and the SDF which is backed by the U.S. for attacking the FSA and Islamists who are backed by the U.S., Turkey and Saudi Arabia."  Good grief.

     But wait.  It gets worse.  "The Russian and Syrian air force will likely respond to the Turkish attack with an intensified bombing of positions held by Turkish proxy forces in Syria.  Those forces just received new artillery ammunition and new TOW anti-tank missiles."

     And then there's this:  "Twenty Saudi F-15 jets arrived today in Incirlik airbase in Turkey to, allegedly, join the U.S. coalition force against the Islamic State.  The Saudis also promised to send ground forces if those would fight under some allied command."

     And this:  "At least 1,600 British troops with heavy weapons and equipment are currently arriving in Jordan.  The Brits claim that this is just for some normal training maneuver but we can expect the British government to be paid off enough by the Gulf Arabs to take part in the fight.  The British units would likely lead a Saudi/UAE/ (maybe also Egyptian?) combined force from east Jordan up through the Syrian desert towards Raqqa and Deir Ezzor."

     And even this:  "An additional brigade from the U.S. 101st Airborne is deploying to Iraq without much public announcement.  Its task is an invasion of Syria from the south-east along the Euphrates to first capture Deir Ezzor and to then move on to Raqqa."  Bet you didn't hear about that on the 10 o'clock news.

      Thought it couldn't get any worse?  Ha!  "Iran is ready to send as many men from its Revolutionary Guard and Quds brigades to Syria as are needed to sustain the governments fight.  These folks salivate over the prospect of having some regular Saudi forces for breakfast.  There are also active attempts to draw all NATO nations into the phony 'fight against ISIS'".

     And then Moon of Alabama leaves us with this cheery thought:  "Meanwhile the Islamic State, confused by this US-created cluster-fu*ck in Iraq and Syria, decides to relocate its headquarters from Iraq and Syria to Libya, the other failed state that...the U.S., France and the UK recently created. 

     Madam Jane could very easily be off about 12 or 13 years regarding her prediction.  It could be any day now instead.  Plus this current disaster of bad judgment on the part of America, Turkey, the Saudis, NATO and Israel sounds very similar to the disaster of bad judgment on the part of Britain, France and Germany that resulted in World War I.  February 14, 2016 may be a day to go down in infamy too.

     "You can't eat guns."
