Still Spinning the Oldies

FL Senator Marco Rubio, desperately trying to regain “presidential timber” status with the bug-fuck crazy GOP base before male pattern baldness robs him of his chief political asset, dusts off the Domino Theory in a WaPo op-ed:

Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Crimea is a direct challenge and long-term threat to the post-World War II international order for which the United States and our allies have made great sacrifices over the past seven decades. If Putin is allowed to take land from a neighboring nation through deceit and raw military force without serious consequences, the precedent could have global repercussions, including in Asia.

Some have suggested that Crimea is not worth triggering tensions with Russia, given other interests that are more important. While it is best to avoid conflict whenever possible, history shows that illegitimate aggressions that go unchallenged are a virtual guarantee of even more dangerous conflict in the future.

First of all, no one is suggesting a tension-free response to the Crimea annexation, you dishonest fuck – we’ve already suspended Putin’s Netflix account, for chrissakes! But you know what else history shows, Rubio, you ignorant fuck? That the Domino Theory was bullshit and that basing foreign policy on it violently ended millions of lives and ruined countless more. The ignorant, lying fuck-knuckle goes on:

I welcome the fact that Vice President Biden is in the region this week to bring a message of reassurance to our allies and partners. I hope those assurances include a specific and clear response to requests by Georgia and Ukraine for lethal military support from the United States. It is shameful that even as Russia attempts to carve up Ukrainian territory, Ukraine’s request for weapons, intelligence sharing and other assistance has been turned down by the Obama administration. We also need to deploy additional military assets and even U.S. personnel to our allies, including Poland and the Baltic states.

Military advisors and boots on the ground — what an original idea, tough guy! Only this time, let us know when the neo-con spawn have enlisted to lead the charge against the godless commies post-Soviet revanchists. The rest of us have invested enough blood, treasure and heartache in your global pissing contests. Fuckhead.

    “post-World War II international order”? Did Rubio sleep through the early 90s?

    Although considering that Rmoney’s advisors were still talking about Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union as if they were current entities, he’ll fit right in with the GOP’s foreign policy “experience”.

    It often seems like Republicans missed many important events of the 1990s since, as you said, they seem to think the USSR and Soviet Bloc countries still exist. IIRC there are, what, maybe half a dozen officially Communist countries left? And most of them are in Asia?

    (The list in my mind is China, North Korea, Vietnam, and Cuba, but I’m sure I’m forgetting someone.)

    @JPL:

    Exactly. I’ll believe Republicans are serious when they propose raising taxes by the total estimated amount it would take – to pick an action at random – to drop the 173rd Airborne into Sevastopol. You know, like they didn’t do when authorizing George and Dick’s Excellent Adventure in Iraq. I know it’s beneath the attention of Bloody Bill Kristol and his ilk to worry about costs and other peoples’ lives (they won’t be his kids, after all) when blathering about American interests and national honor and similar horseshit. But a lot of the rest of us, including at least some U.S. senators, have learned to think at least a little bit about costs and long term consequences and such. Some of us thought about such things even prior to 9/11, when modern history began for the Republican Party.

    Marco Rubio is a posing dipshit trying to regain his place on the presidential nomination ladder. Marco, amigo, you’ll have to crank up teh crazy a lot higher than this to catch up with the Cruz missile.

    Edit: please don’t change, Betty, we like you just the way you are. Except next time I want artwork depicting a Marco Rubio oration, and no, it can’t be a picture of a steaming pile of horseshit.

Once Bush was allowed to invade a sovereign nation through deceit and raw military force without serious consequences, the precedent had global repercussions, including in Eurasia.

    My neocon and paleocon friends are struggling with this because they don’t want to be tied to Bush. Had an email convo today in which a buddy put forth the following:
    1. Bush went too far with preemptive war
    2. But leaders cannot show one iota of “weakness”, such as not invading Syria or doing something about Ukraine.
    3. The fact that Russia invaded Georgia in 2008 was either due to belief that a dove democrat would be elected or is the exception that proves the rule.

    Putin has already been making noise about the rights of Russian-speakers in Estonia. Let’s say he decides to shift his border a little westward there, in what is now southeastern Estonia. Will NATO tanks roll in and block him? Will NATO fire any shots? Think about this hard before you answer it.

    Gin & Tonic says:

    @Villago Delenda Est: An attack on one member of NATO is an attack on all.

    Which is precisely why I picked it for my thought experiment. The northern part of the Russian-Estonian border is along a lake and a river, pretty clearly defined. The southern part is mostly pretty arbitrary, with ethnic Russians on both sides. Is an “adjustment” to that border the same as tanks rolling into Poland? Will German tanks fire upon Russian tanks inside Estonia? How inviolable are those borders? That’s why I said “think hard” before answering. Ukraine’s borders were supposed to be guaranteed by the US, UK and Russia. They weren’t.

  76. 76
    Chris says:

    @Gin & Tonic:

    Since the Budapest Memorandum does not include a military commitment comparable to Article V of the NATO treaty, and has less force than an actual treaty would (the White House never tried to turn it into one, because they didn’t think it could pass Congress, probably rightly so), yes. It is an order of magnitude greater.

    Does that mean that the U.S. would absolutely totally definitely for sure cross its heart and hope to die honor its commitments if Russian troops went into the Baltics? Maybe not. NATO allies wondered the same thing all through the Cold War (read De Gaulle’s memoirs and you’ll find that one of his main reasons for taking France out of NATO was that he wasn’t sure that Americans would be willing to risk Washington to save Paris in the event of a Russian invasion). Certainly countries closer to Russia, like West Germany or Turkey, wondered the same thing.

    But these hypothetical Russian invasions never materialized, for the simple reason that none of the Russian leaders were crazy enough to gamble the survival of their country on the hunch that America wouldn’t honor its most important military agreement in existence. Too big of a risk. Is Putin willing to take a risk that all his Soviet-era predecessors weren’t? Hypothetically maybe, but he hasn’t indicated it so far.

    Transnistria, the breakaway part of Moldova, would like to rejoin Russia; they still have a hammer and sickle on their flag. There are a couple of problems with that, however.

    Higgs Boson's Mate says:

    I wholeheartedly have added “fuck-knuckle” to the list of things I wish I’d thought up. My esteem for that expression is so high that I’m stealing it.

    @schrodinger’s cat: Of the local BPOE? He’s a shoo-in.

    Bob In Portland says:

    Well, I remember that if we didn’t stop them in Hanoi we’d have to stop them in California. And now there are Pho restaurants and sandwich shops all over the country. There are lots of Dominos, too, but that’s another invasion.

    Snarki, child of Loki says:

    So when are the neocon warmongers going to elist as the “Light Brigade V.2”, and take the war to Crimea?

    I’m guessing half-past never, more’s the pity.

    Epicurus says:

    May I request that the new definition of Rubio (“ignorant, lying fuck-knuckle”) be added to the BJ Lexicon? It just sums up this little charmer so well. And trying to resurrect 40-year old, discredited theories is no way to go through life. Nonetheless, the number of fucks I could give regarding little Marco is infinitesimal. He’s a loser, and will never reach any higher office. Hopefully, he’ll lose this gig after his next election.

    Rasputin's Evil Twin says:

    It’s probably a good time to send a Russian language copy of “The Guns of August” to Putin. It doesn’t look like he’s read it.

    Also, we should send Rubio the English edition. And whack ol’ Grandpa Walnuts over the head with the large print edition, repeatedly, until he gets the point.
