U.S. Funding Of Insurgents

Junior, perhaps, should be more concerned with the American insurgency that's just around the corner, if he plays out his hand as most believe he will, than insurgencies around the Arab world.

So You Say You Want an Insurrection?

“We are in a program to enhance the Sunni capability to resist Shiite influence, and we’re spreading the money around as much as we can. In this process, we’re financing a lot of bad guys with some serious potential unintended consequences.” - an anonymous former intelligence official

“I told Cheney that some people in the Arab world, mainly the Egyptians won’t like it if the United States helps the Brotherhood. But if you don’t take on Syria we will be face to face in Lebanon with Hezbollah in a long fight, and one we might not win.” - Druze leader Walid Jumblatt

As to what the experience taught them, in terms of future covert operations, the participants found: “One, you can’t trust our friends. Two, the C.I.A. has got to be totally out of it. Three, you can’t trust the uniformed military, and four, it’s got to be run out of the Vice-President’s office” - Seymour Hersh, “The Redirection.”

You say you want an insurrection
Well, you know, we‘ve gotta keep the world intact.
You want to change the Constitution
Well, you know, we’ve gotta work with what we have.
But if you’re seeing tools of destruction,
We’d all advise you to blink twice.

Don’t think it’s gonna be alright.
Alright. Alright.

You say you’ve tabled all your options
Well, you know, we’re all glad to hear the news.
A diplomatic resolution
Well, you know, a good start is getting rid of Hughes.
But if you go secretly funding insurgents
Then I just got one word for you: Impeachment.

Don’t think it’s gonna be alright.

Alright. Alright.

You blame the liberal institutions
Well, you know you’d better take a closer look at yours.
You say you’ve found tools of destruction
Well, you know, we’d all love to see the proof.
But if you go flashing those pictures of mushroom clouds,
Don’t expect us this time around to be wowed.

Don’t think it’s gonna be alright.
Alright. Alright.
