FAO Quotables

"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist."

Pentagon Protester of the Week- Christians Dump the Jews

NOTE:  For those who don't know,  every Monday morning the Pentagon allows only the biggest idiots best and brightest dissenters to post up on the grassy area by the Metro entrance escalators and display their signs. 

Meant to post this on Monday...

  A beautiful Monday morning coming up the escalator.  There were only six protesters today:  two elderly woman, a young guy and girl, an older gentlemen with a mullet and one with glasses and a short man.
Not sure if their appearance is worth describing much beyond that, after all, they're communists crazy just normal people. 

The protester of the week this week was the older gentleman with a mullet.  I kid you not, here's what his sign said:

"Christians dump their Jewish victims
 on a poor desert country
 in the British desert empire Israel"

Initial observations:
-This guy wasn't an English major.
-And maybe not even a high school graduate.

-His obvious target here are Christians. 
-His assertion (from what I can tell) is the Christians have ensconced the Jews of the world from their homes and 'dumped' them in Israel

-How is it possible to draw a conclusion from this gobbleygoo?
-Why is the Pentagon crowd his target audience?
-What does he hope to accomplish?

   The protester this week succinctly illustrates the sheer entertainment craziness that greets me each Monday morning.
